Man today looks at physical forms superficially,
without examining their inner basis. This is the secular or temporal
approach to knowledge. In spirituality, however, one looks beneath
Excellence in secular knowledge may lead to great
achievements; but it can never bring enduring respect. By contrast,
one who is immersed in God never fails to elicit respect. Knowledge
is meaningful only when it leads to good thoughts.
You sow thoughts and reap actions; sow actions
and reap habits; sow habits and reap character; sow character and
reap a fortune. Thus, fortune depends on character; character on
habits; habits on actions; and actions on thought.
It all comes back to thoughts, and in the
ultimate analysis, thoughts shape ones future as well as fortune.
Good fortune is the result of good thoughts,whereas bad thoughts
lead eventually to bad fortune, via bad actions, bad habits and evil

Itís that which would please God. Whatever you do, you should always

What is Divinity? Who is God? The Love that is
immanent in all beings is God. Love is God, and this Love is
inherent in all. Man should express the Love latent in him in the

unselfish Love must be treated as an aspect of the Divine. It cannot
be commanded or demanded, purchased or acquired. You cannot hire it
or obtain it on lease. Love is immanent and infinite.
Pure Love can be attained only through Pure Love.
Love should be the basis of life. Today, no one thinks of true,
Selfless Love. People seek all kinds of specialised education and
power. All this is an exercise in futility. Actions become
meaningful only when they are born of good thoughts and rooted
firmly in Pure Love.
