If I had to state the core teaching of the ancient spiritual wisdom I try to follow, I’d do it like this:
With love and devotion, surrender to divine will and be a source of love, hope and healing energy to all who cross your path.
Is it possible to maintain awareness of God’s presence in every moment? Think of it this way: When you fall in love, you hold the thought of your beloved in the back of your mind throughout the day, even while concentrating on difficult tasks. When you fall in love with the Divine Beloved, the joy of God communion is never far from your thoughts.
Our daily worship of God is not really the process of gradual acquisition of him, but the daily process of surrendering ourselves, removing all obstacles to union and extending our consciousness of him in devotion and service, in goodness and in love.
The greater your peace, the easier it becomes to feel God’s presence. It is not outer activity but inner restlessness that distracts you from God.
No matter which way you turn a compass, its needle points to the north. So it is with the true yogi. Immersed he may be in many outer activities, but his mind is always on the Lord.
The beckoning whisper of Spirit is a call to rise, to be a source of love and light to the world, to humbly be of service to God and humankind.
The highest form of spiritual work is the realization of the essence of man. . . . You never learn the answer; you can only become the answer.
Life begins anew when you joyously acknowledge that everything you do is for God and that everything you have is from God.
Never be satisfied with less than awareness of God. The moment you find yourself becoming dull, slothful, or lazy about your spiritual life, pray to God to shake you out of that state. I always say to Him, “I don’t care what You do with me, whether You visit me with trials or with happiness, only let my mind always be in You. I ask nothing more. Do with me what You will. It is all the same to me. I only know that in my mind I must be with You constantly.
