GEM 303



Fill your Heart with purity and love all and hate none, then Divinity will manifest itself in you.


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

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 53



Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 53


Do not think
That by admitting your faults
That your faults have vanished-
Learn to admit your faults
But without sincere repentance
And complete correction
With humility and patience
The admittance of the faults
Hold no meaning -
Repentance is that act
In which the ego burns
And in its burning
One sees the light of the Divine -
And the one
That is able to see this Holy Light
Immediately becomes humble
And works patiently
Knowing that all is My work
And the result of My every work
Is always dedicated
To the good of all!


(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

SACRED PRAYER



Prayer is when you talk to God;
meditation is when you listen to God.
- Diana Robinson

At any time, in any situation, prayer is an effective and powerful way for me to focus on God, the one true source of all there is. Prayer is my eternal link to all that is pure, all that is timeless, all that is true - my stepping-stone over troubled waters and onto a foundation of immense spiritual support.

During my sacred times of prayer, I ask for guidance. In the quietness of my soul, I receive the comfort and support I seek. God knows my innermost thoughts and dreams even before I realize what they are. Long before I ask, God has ready for me the guidance to the fulfillment of a divine plan.

One with God, I am one with my friends, my family - with all creation. I am an important part of the complete whole that is God. In sacred prayer, I quiet my own thoughts and listen.

In my sacred times of prayer, I listen to God.

Be Thankful



I dreamt that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, "This is the Receiving Section". Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received.
I looked around in this area, and it was terribly busy with so many angels sorting out petitions written on voluminous paper sheets and scraps from people all over the world.
Then we moved on down a long corridor until we reached the second section.
The angel then said to me, "This is the Packaging and Delivery Section. Here, the graces and blessings the people asked for are processed and delivered to the living persons who asked for them." I noticed again how busy it was there. There were many angels working hard at that station, since so many blessings had been requested and were being packaged for delivery to Earth.
Finally at the farthest end of the long corridor we stopped at the door of a very small station. To my great surprise, only one angel was seated there, idly doing nothing. "This is the Acknowledgment Section, my angel friend quietly admitted to me. He seemed embarrassed." How is it that there is no work going on here? I asked.
"So sad," the angel sighed. "After people receive the blessings that they asked for, very few send back acknowledgments"
"How does one acknowledge God's blessings? " I asked.
"Simple," the angel answered. Just say, "Thank you, Lord."
"What blessings should they acknowledge?" I asked.
  • "If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep you are richer than 75% of this world. If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish, you are among the top 8% of the world's wealthy."

  • "And if you received this on your own computer, you are part of the 1% in the world who has that opportunity."

  • "If you woke up this morning with more health than illness...You are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day. "

  • "If you have never experienced the fear in battle, the loneliness of imprisonment, the agony of torture, or the pangs of starvation ... You are ahead of 700 million people in the world."
  • "If you can attend a church without the fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death you are envied by, and more blessed than, three billion people in the world."

  • "If your parents are still alive and still married ...you are very rare."

  • "If you can hold your head up and smile, you are not the norm, you're unique to all those in doubt and despair..."

Peace




Peace denotes the capacity to bear success and failure, joy and misery, defeat and victory, with equanimity. Man is at peace, only during sleep. For, at that time, the senses are inactive, the mind is inert and unattached to senses or their targets. So when the senses are made ineffective to drag the mind out, man can attain peace.



(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God,  sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)

VEDA 300






Today even the highly educated parents are acting without any sense of discrimination. They discourage their children from worshipping God and participating in Bhajans. They tell them that they would have ample time to think of God after retirement. This is a grave mistake. “Start early, drive slowly, reach safely.” One can remember God in old age only when one thinks of Him right from one’s childhood.

GEM 302



Even if a man does not possess anything, he can still achieve the highest if he has purity of Heart.


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

ONE STEP



All serious daring starts from within.
- Eudora Welty


As a child, I learned to walk only after I had taken the first step. Then I learned to run. My first steps may have been unsteady, but with them I was on my way to discovering a whole new world filled with unlimited possibilities.

Each day is a new journey, and I take the first step by trusting God to show me the way. Yes, there may be shortcuts, and I discover these with joy and expectation. And I am also prepared to take side trips along the way, for it is in the unexpected that I often find the most inspiration.

Right now, as I begin the new journey that this day holds for me, I can put aside all doubt and know that wherever I am going, God is with me - each and every step of the way.

Each road to success begins with the first step.


(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.
