Sai Darshan, Part - 91




My life itself must become your study.
I have come to teach you of life,
Not by mere words, but by living it Myself.
Live amongst temptations, but remain unaffected.
Live amongst evil, but rise to ignore them.
Live amongst the spiritually sick, but stay healthy.
Live amongst other's faults,
But point out only your own.
Live amongst hate and bitterness,
But only respond with love.
Live amongst life's changes,
But believe in your own eternity.
Live amongst all that is human,
But experience your Divinity.
Yes! My life must be your practice,
My life must pave the way to your search for God,
My life will show and prove,
That which you think is impossible,
My life screams your identity, your origin.
The birth of the Lord is never in vain.
My life itself must become your life.
I have come to show you God,
Not by mere words, but by living it Myself!

SONG OF PEACE



"I am an instrument of God's peace and harmony in my world."

A musical instrument cannot play itself, but in the hands of a master musician, it seems to come alive with beautiful, soul-stirring music.

We ourselves are instruments through which God produces beautiful music, songs of peace and harmony, for those around us to enjoy. As instruments of peace, we are continually sharing the blessings of God's love that lives in our own hearts and minds.

The love and peace of God are waiting to play through us in an uplifting harmony of tranquil thoughts, words, and actions. Being God's instruments of peace, we understand that we are eternally one with the serenity of God.

In harmony with the peace of God within us, within others, and all around us, we bring every person on earth into our song of peace.

"Create in me a clean heart, O God."
- Psalm 51:20

Destiny


Eternal Sai - 219




Devotion should manifest itself in every action. Everything is done out of love for God and as an offering to God becomes devotion. The devotee is filled with love and shares the love with all the others. The nine different forms of worship are only means to cultivate devotion. But the goal of all of them is to experience oneness with the Divine.


(SSS XXI - Chap 6)

Eternal Sai - 218



Spiritual disciplines determine the character of a person. Character determines the destiny - whether good or bad. Character is built up by constant practice of good actions. Actions, in their turn, are based on one's thoughts and intentions. Whenever any thought arises in the mind, one should examine whether it is right or wrong, whether it will do good to society or cause harm to it. Actions should be based on such enquiry. It would be wrong to blame anyone for our misfortunes. Our thoughts and actions alone are responsible for our plight. If one entertains pure thoughts and does all actions with firm faith in God, he will be favored with God's Grace.

(SSS Vol XIX - Chap 14)

VEDA 242


[download-35.jpeg]

A ladder has to be as tall as the height of the wall you want to reach; your ‘Sadhana’ (Spiritual Discipline) has to be as long as the time taken to reach the goal. When the walls are completed, the scaffolding is removed. When the vision of reality is attained all forms of spiritual discipline can be stacked away.

GEM 244



Repeat to yourself the truth that the world is as much God as is Heaven.


(From : Garland of 1008 Gems, Bhagawan Shri Sathya Sai Baba's Sayings)

Dragonfly



Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions.

Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.

Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top.

When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.

So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never known existed.

Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.

But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew.

So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!

BLESSED JOURNEY



"I thank God for being my faithful, loving companion."

I am on my own special path in life, and my journey, not my arrival, is what is important. Every day of my journey, I give and receive blessings.

Even in the most challenging of times, when it seems I am required to go the extra mile, I find that I can do it. I discover that I have more courage, wisdom, and strength than I ever before dreamed I had.

I have more because God is replacing whatever I use even faster than I can use it. So I take time to savor every day of my journey.

I have taken my path not by chance, but because I have divine appointments to keep. And I know that God is my companion all along the way.

"As he was setting out on a journey, a man ran up and knelt before him, and asked him,
'Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?' "
- Mark 10:17


(From : 'Daily Word' magazine by Silent Unity, a world wide prayer ministry)  

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
