Self is immutable and so is the Supreme Self. Therefore, be one with the immutable. Why do you allow yourself to be swept hither and thither like a straw? You become peace-less in the face of petty troubles – a notice from a government department, not being able to have your way, not getting approval or recognition in some matter… how small you become! As you think, so does your mind become. Therefore, please think of God. Don’t let your mind go towards any person or thing other than God. Focus.
You are told that God is in everybody and everything and that His will be done. It means the Lord abides in you. Thousands of gamblers are playing games; let them play. You think of playing with the Indweller Lord and so turn your mind inward. You shouldn’t exhaust yourself capitulating to kinsmen labouring under delusion. God’s will be done means accepting whatever is happening whether or not it is to your liking.
Don’t predetermine any type of meditation nor have preconceived notions of the results it should produce. As you sit for meditation, tell Him, ‘O Lord! Thy will be done!’ This is meditation and reflection, too.Whatever you do with your body, do it for the pleasure of Indweller Lord. Don’t work for sense-gratification or for ego trip. Work with a view to propitiate the Lord. This is real service. If people seek your help or service by flattering you, be careful and examine whether you are being motivated by adulation or you are rendering service for the pleasure of the Guru or the Indweller Lord. If you exercise this care, your service will become much rewarding and your nature will be sweet. Those who work for appreciation and fame end up quarrelling and fighting with each other.Reject your ego. Give your acceptance by saying, ‘O Lord! What you will is for the best of all! Thy will be done!’ God, the Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute and Freedom Absolute, wants you to be like Him. God’s will being fulfilled means God will make you God. The Supreme Brahmn wants to see you as Brahmn for you are in substance one and the same as Himself.
Instead of praying for a particular kind of weather, pray to Him, ‘O Lord! Thy will be done!’ Then whatever the weather may be, it will not cause any trouble to you. Just give your consent. If somebody hurls abuses at you, say in your mind, ‘God! You are great! Through these cuss words, You are destroying my ego. O Lord! Thy will be done!’ This in itself is a great sadhana. If you think ‘Oh my God! It is very hot…’ you will be tormented by hot weather. But you want to enjoy the rain –summer heat is essential for the rains to come.Summer heat is essential also for making one strong enough to tolerate cold as cold is essential for making one strong enough to tolerate the summer heat. Insults are necessary to make one able to assimilate appreciation and fame. Death is necessary for one to assimilate life. The Lord is doing all that is necessary for you.
