Loss of Peace

VEDA 330

In order to have sacred thoughts, give up vices like smoking, consumption of non-vegetarian food and intoxicants. Do not waste food, money, time and energy.

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


Dear friend, I pray thee,
if thou wouldst be proving thy strong regard for me,
Make me no vows. Lip service is not loving;
Let thy faith speak for thee.

Swear not to me that nothing can divide us -
So little such oaths mean.
But when distrust and envy creep beside us,
Let them not come between.

Say not to me the depths of thy devotion
Are deeper than the sea;
But watch, lest doubt or some unkind emotion
Embitter them for thee.

Vow not to love me ever and forever,
Words are such idle things;
But when we differ in opinions, never
Hurt me by little stings.

I'm sick of words : they are so lightly spoken,
And spoken, are but air.
If all the little proofs of trust are heeded,
If thou art always kind,
No sacrifice, no promise will be needed
To satisfy my mind.

(Friendship : Quotable Quotes - Pg 31)

GEM 332

When you fill the tank of Heart with truth and righteousness, all limbs of the body and sense organs functioning as taps will radiate truth and righteousness.

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

Joyful Awakening

Speak to God as if you were talking to your very best and closest friend, because you are.
- Mary-Alice Jafolla

Praying to God before I sleep prepares me for a joyful awakening - a feeling of excitement and expectation about a new day.

In the first moments of awakening, I have not yet remembered what I was concerned about last night or the day before.  I am fresh, and joy moves through me unimpeded.

I have awakened to life and to God in my life.  During the night while I sleep, the spirit of God within me was awake and active.  As I slept, I gave Spirit access to my consciousness and to even deeper levels of my subconscious.  God healed and refreshed me.

Joy rushes into my awakening moments and will stay with me when I invite it to be a spirit of gladness that permeates my whole day.

Awakening to God is awakening to the joy of God in my life.

Sai Darshan, Part 3 - 106

I talk of "change" and "transformation",
But the change is not of circumstances
That surround you.
I talk of the "change",
In the way you will perceive circumstances.
Once you walk steps towards Me,
Maya (delusion) will still surround you,
But the change in you will now recognize it
At every step,
And the effect of this delusion on you
Will begin to minimize.
Your habits that have become your second nature,
Will become easier to break,
With less pain to attachments.
Your peace will lie only with God,
And you will begin to seek only that,
Which emits and radiates His beauty.
Your own disgust of your spiritual failures,
Will motivate your search for Me.
In this change, you own weaknesses,
Will urge you to look for the strength of God.
The change I talk of is not of the world,
But the change in the attitudes of each one of you.
Within each one of you lies
The strength to change the world,
Not by any mutiny, war, or revolution,
But by the dedication and willingness
To change yourselves.

From : 'Sai Darshan' - Part III
(Divine Messages received and recorded by Mrs Seema M Dewan)

VEDA 329

The conscience that exists in every one is one and the same, just as the current that flows through different bulbs is the same. All are one. So, do not hate, harm or criticize anybody. He is a noble one, who conducts himself without hurting others and not being troubled in the process himself.

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

GEM 331

When the Heart is filled with good thoughts and feelings, all that comes our of the senses - your speech, your vision, your action will be pure.

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

Gifts Of Spirit

When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left,
and could say, "I used everything you gave me."
- Erma Bombeck

God loves me and has given me unique gifts of talents and abilities.  Through the love of God in me, the ways that I can benefit the world will open up to me.

Even if I am not sure what my gifts may be, I can be sure that I am using them.  How?  By the way I give - from my heart.  Perhaps I have the sacred responsibility of caring for children or adults.  My gifts may be the wisdom, patience, and strength to be caring.

Other gifts could be my ability to uplift someone who is feeling down or to bring new light to a complex problem.  Whatever my gifts are, I know that they are vitally needed, vitally important to God's plan.  Through love, I touch the heart of each individual I meet.

I have my own unique gifts to give to the world.

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


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.
