When, through the colored glass of ignorance, we view the pure workings of the Divine will, we behold in them good and evil and consequently become subject to joy and grief. So in all matters let us submit to the Divine dispensation.

Very often we set a false value upon ourselves and think we are great, good and all that. God alone is great and good.

We are forever one with Him, though we pretend to be playing our parts as if we were different from Him.

We can be good, and can do good only when we act and live in the exalted state which is bereft of the egoistic notion of doership. Real good flows out of us, only when we have transcended the individual sense and have come to dwell in the supreme and universal consciousness of God.

We can be His true servants and children, ever fearless and always blissful, only when we have realized, through love, our oneness with Him?Him, who is within and without us everywhere.

We may live for thousands of years and may obtain whatever we desire of the world, but we shall never be happy so long as our hunger for earthly things does not perish.
