for the Day
we understand the law of life, it is seldom
we take a frowning attitude, towards ourselves,
towards others, or towards God.
egoism, power, pride, lust, anger and possession,
freed from the notion of "mine"
and tranquil: one is thus fit to become
one with the Supreme. Becoming one with
the Supreme, serene-minded, he neither grieves
nor desires; alike to all beings, he attains
supreme devotion unto Me.
The reaction of one who keeps on brooding
is gloominess, like a thick cloud. We can
never afford to take a discontented or careless
attitude. We must keep our mind pure, watchful
and open to the higher realm of thought.
No aloofness from our fellow-men can insure
us connection with the Heart of God. When
we perceive that a thing is detrimental,
what can we do? Counteract it. In the presence
of light, darkness vanishes. In the presence
of God, evil falls down.
the All-loving Spirit of the Universe free
me from all self-interest and self-assertion;
I shed abroad love and love alone.
love be to me an armour and my only weapon.
His life-giving power infill me
cleanse me from all arrogance.
