What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

You have to make a difference in this world.....

Today I will talk about the self-confidence, also about the self-respect. So, often when travelling around looking how people are, how people live in different parts of the world and also how far along spirituality is. It’s a bit sad, actually, because people long for peace, people long for happiness; people long to be free, but yet, when you see how they live their life, you ask the questions “Will they ever be free; will they ever be happy? Will they ever be happy the way they live?” Well, if you ask the question, the answer will be “No.” Imagine how lucky you are, sitting here, to sing the Divine Names. How lucky it is that God chose you to be on a spiritual path. But it doesn’t end only here, because when you are on the spiritual path, very often I’ve seen people very shy, very shy to say that they are on this path. They are shy to say that they love God. Well, if you are shy to say that you are on a spiritual path and you love God, where is the self-confidence in it? Where is the faith in it? Where is the faith in yourself? You should never be afraid of saying that you love God, because this is the only thing; He is the only One that you can love, really. And only by being true to yourself, by being sincere to yourself, you can really change something. Like that, you don’t only change yourself, but you change other people also. People are scared of the spiritual path, because they see the limitation in the outside. If spiritual people limit themselves by being scared of the outside, well, it will not help. It will not help others to change. Like I said last time, become an instrument of this Divine Love. If you become an instrument of this Divine Love, you have to spread it. You have to make a difference in this world, not only in your life, but also in your surroundings.
