A Letter from the Lord

My dears,

From sleep you awake, to sleep you go again. In between two periods of sleep you are engaged in activity. Activity which is just aimed at filling bellies. All life is not lived for satisfying physical hunger only. It is an opportunity to remember, cherish and seek the presence of God. The world stage if full of characters. The Lord, the Director, has cast each one is a separate role. One ought to learn to perform one’s role perfectly This can happen only if the Director is obeyed to the letter, to each and every direction of His. Anything done against His direction by the character in the drama of life renders the individual useless and desolate. Ego and attachment are the two things that bar one from obeying the director’s commands.

It is only when Arjuna surrendered himself, confessed his ignorance, his exhaustion and despair and sought Krishna’s guidance that the Lord began to confide in him the Supreme Truth. So unless and until the feelings of I and mine are not given up by the individual, the Lord shall not step into the arena of one’s life, the precincts of one’s heart. So, learn to live for the satisfaction of one’s real Self. The real Self which is always selfless and content in itself. Self-confidence, self-sacrifice, self-satisfaction and self-realization- these are the guideposts to the fruition of life. Self confidence is the foundation, self-sacrifice is the top, self satisfaction is the pillar, self realisation is the mansion.

It is not enough if one earns a university degree, one should strive to earn the universal degree. In order to become the near and dear one of the Lord, one should either become like the flute or like the pair of slippers. The ‘chappals’ beat the weight of the person who wears them and bears the pain of the thorns, shrubs and pebbles on the underneath. Learn to cultivate fortitude, patience and love and seek to give and live.

It is much better and easier to become the flute. The flute is hollow, devoid of likes and dislikes, desire, anger, envy, malice and greed of me and mine. Have the goal clear before you strive to reach it.

The yardstick of self-control meaures your advancement. The ear must hear, the eye must see, the tongue should taste, the hands should work, and the legs should walk according to the directions of Atma.

With Blessings and Love,
Baba
