What do we need to be successful in our daily living and in the purpose of life? Bhagawan lovingly guides us today!
It is necessary to emphasise that to successfully confront the problems that arise in one’s daily living, one has to possess intelligence and skill, in addition to the qualities of justice, virtue, and spiritual excellence. Both intelligence and skill are essential for progress, as essential as two wings for a bird or two wheels for a cart. The importance of the higher path that leads to the Highest can be realised only by experiencing and understanding the world. The world is enchanting, because it is a tantalising appearance, though it is fundamentally untrue. It is a phenomenon that is fading out. When this truth is realised, one becomes aware of the cosmic sport of God and the eternal universal Being. This state of consciousness cannot be won through the piling of wealth or worldly power or the acquisition of knowledge and skill. It can be won through the purification of one’s consciousness in all its facets and the earnestness with which the search is pursued.
– Leela Kaivalya Vahini, Ch 1.
