Uplift ourselves by your own efforts. Never allow yourself to fall.
Don’t wait for circumstances or people to help you.
Put forth efforts yourself.
Human Life is meant for our inner unfoldment.
Don’t waste it.
Great heights are attained with self-effort,
as the Grace of the Lord manifests with our effort.
Do not condemn or demean yourself.
The Lord is always with you…in you.
Ultimately you will realise…He is your own Self.
Your own mind is your own enemy
and also your best friend.
An uncontrolled mind becomes your enemy
A well controlled mind is your friend…
helps you achieve both material prosperity and spiritual unfoldment.
Control the senses
Give up selfish desires
– they instigate wrong action
– destroy our knowledge and wisdom.
Do not suppress selfish desires….
Instead sublimate them by doing actions…
…as an offering to the Lord.
This will free you from likes and dislikes…
selfishness, frustrations and other negativities.
The Lord’s words: Whatever you do, whatever you eat, whatever you offer in sacrifice, whatever you give in charity, whatever you practise as austerity, O Kaunteya, do it as an offering to Me.
Perform your duties and activities with this attitude you will be liberated from all bondages and become one with Me.
