How should we conduct ourselves in our daily living at home, at work or in society? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today.
Consider this example: you have built a house with a main door and many windows for proper ventilation. Just because there is an entrance, you will not allow all the street dogs and pigs into your house. You open the door only for your family, friends, and relatives. Likewise, the mind is the main door and the senses are like windows to the body, which is the temple of God. You have to enquire as to who is to be permitted into this temple and who is not to be permitted. But today, no one makes this enquiry. As a result, all types of wicked feelings and wicked thoughts are permitted to enter the mind. Na sreyo niyamam vina (Without discipline, there can be no well-being). Do not develop friendships with everyone. Enquire whether the person is good or not. However, do not hate anybody – Adhveshta sarvabhutanam. At the same time, don’t cross your limits in dealing with others. Have limited connections and contacts.
