Are we truly practising seeing God within and in everyone around us, especially in moments when we are slighted or feel angry? Bhagawan lovingly prompts us to introspect and refine ourselves today.
Now, the law of human behaviour has become “each for himself”! This is because of the fact that “all-are-one-in-God” is not known and realised. This realisation is the product of sadhana; the conviction in it is of slow growth but must be acquired. The great sage, Durvasa, famous in epics for asceticism, is also renowned for his anger when he’s slighted or thwarted by others! He was so sensitive, so egoistic, so uppish, that he forgot the unity of “all-in-God”! He was ready with a frightful curse when anyone showed disregard for his inflated ego! Of what avail are all years of austerity? Surrender all you have and have gained to the Lord. Sometimes, when you have extra cash with you, you hand it over to a trusted friend, saying, “Keep this for me; I’m afraid I may spend it soon if it’s in my hands; I can’t trust myself.” God is the friend on whom you should put your trust! So, hand over to Him all that you have and be free and happy! You do not do it now, since faith is wanting!
