How can we make the best use of the presence of the Divine Indweller? Bhagawan reminds us that we may use this opportunity to illumine our lives.
A lady wept that her necklace was lost or stolen; she searched everywhere and became inconsolably sad. Then, when she passed a mirror, she found the lost necklace around her neck. Thus, it was there all the time. Similarly, God is there, as the Inner Dweller, whether you know it or not. Love is of three kinds: a) self-centred, which like a bulb, illumines just a small room; b) mutual, which like the moonlight, spreads wider but is not clearer; and c) others-centred, which like the sunlight, is all pervasive and clear. Cultivate the third type of love; that will save you. All the service that you do to others through that love is in fact service done to yourself. It is not others that you help, it is yourself that is helped, remember.
