Untruth


Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 64


Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 64


You judge God
Only by the way you think
By the way you do and
By the way you are...
That is why
You wish not to surrender
To Him
Fully and completely.



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

VEDA 328






The body, mind, senses and intellect are all negative in nature. Only the conscience is positive. Just as the microphone is useless without the current, so also are the body, mind, senses and intellect without the conscience.




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

STEPPING STONES



The Lord came to me like a dream one day and asked,
why do you sorrow
I answered, Lord my life is so full of pain,
I can’t face one more tomorrow.


The Lord sat down beside me, and gently took my hand.
He said, Let me explain to you and then you’ll understand.
Each sorrow is a stepping stone you must surmount each day,
And every stepping stone you climb is a sorrow that’s passed away.

The road of life is a mountainside, with crevices in which to be caught,
But as you struggle on your way, I, the Rock, will lend support.
Every stepping stone you climb, makes spirit and heart grow strong.
Exercising character and faith this road seems painful and long.

The way is paved with stepping stones, to uplift your heart and soul,
Though difficult they aid your way, to a City paved with gold.
I know that you are tired, for I too have walked this way,
My sorrows did they multiply, but I cleared the stones away.

I left my rock to lift you up, I left behind my story.
To give you strength to make your climb, to that special place in glory.
And never fear, the Rock is here, You’ll never climb alone
Surmount life’s sorrows, continue on,
For they are but stepping stones.

GEM 330



When you consult your Heart or conscience, it tells you what is right.  It is the right preceptor.

Being A Friend


The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.
- Hada Bejar


Granted, I can never make a first impression with the same person more than once, but each day brings new opportunities to interact with people I have never met before or with whom I may never cross paths again.  So, I make it a point to be friendly and compassionate to everyone.

Because I am an expression of God, I use these opportunities to put my best self forward.  Walking down a street, talking on a telephone, shopping in a store - wherever there are people to meet and interact with, that is where I greet people with a smile and treat them with respect.

I may not know where life will take me or my loved ones, but I can make a point of being the best person I can be.  I am doing my part by being the best person I can be.  I am doing my part by being a friend in all of my interactions with others.


Thank you, God, for every opportunity to be a friend.

Call Me


Eternal Sai - 234





The Divine can be grasped only through love, faith and saadhana (spiritual discipline), surcharged with Universal Love. Reason is too feeble an instrument to measure it. Denial of the Divine cannot negate it. Logic cannot reveal it. All the tirades now being made on the Divine are from atheists who are opportunists. So your duty is to preserve your equanimity. Be true to yourselves and do not waver. I am unaffected by praise or blame. My love and compassion envelop all; My Grace can be shared by all. I am declaring this so that you may face all this with fortitude. The more you dig, the deeper the derision; the higher the mound, the taller the praise. People with a disease in the nose cannot appreciate the fragrance of a flower. Those who cannot appreciate or recognize the Divine are suffering from an illness which handicaps them to do so.

(SSS Vol XIII – Chap 25)

VEDA 327






Humanity can rise to Divinity through sense control. When you get angry, remind yourself that anger is not a human quality; it is an animal quality. Anger is the quality of a dog. When you are angry, tell yourself, "I am not a dog, I am a man." Similarly when your mind wavers, tell yourself repeatedly, "I am not a monkey, I am a man." Sathya, Dharma, Santhi, Prema and Ahimsa (Truth, Righteousness, Peace, Love and Non-violence) are the true human values. Losing any one of these values amounts to losing one's life principle itself.

GEM 329



When the Heart is dedicated to right purposes, all our actions become righteous and our life gets redeemed.


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

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.
