What are some important aspects in our daily living we must pay attention to? Bhagawan lovingly reminds us today with precious pearls of wisdom.
Your nature is revealed by your acts, gestures, looks, speech, your food habits, dress, and gait! Therefore, pay attention to ensure that your speech, your movements, thoughts, and behaviour are all right — full of love, pure, and devoid of wildness and waywardness! You must develop the humility to believe that you have much good to learn from others! Your enthusiasm, your strong ambition, resolution, capacity to work, your store of knowledge, and wisdom — these must be related to all others and not utilised for you alone! Your heart should take all others in. Your thoughts too should be patterned on those broad lines. Treat each trouble you encounter as a fortunate opportunity to develop your strength of mind and to toughen you with greater fortitude. Eating food is a holy ritual (yajna). It should not be performed during moments of anxiety or emotional tension. Food must be considered as medicine for the illness of hunger and as the sustenance of life.
