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.

Old habits catch up from time to time.....

 When you chant the Divine Name, you have to fully have the vision inside of you. You have to have the Divine Image inside of your mind. Then you are chanting the Divine Name. Then He will manifest Himself.   If you are chanting doing something else, you know, “I’m doing this whatever, yet I am chanting the Divine
Name”, it doesn’t help. So even if you can’t do it, just try. It doesn’t mean much to try, no? It’s easy to try something, no?  It’s true that old habits catch up from time to time  but old habits do change with time. There are always new habits. So you see, even with the old habits, whenever there is something to change, one
will always change. It’s like when you drive, you always go to work on the same road, no? But when there is a diversion, what do you do? Do you carry on going through the same road? You go for the diversion, no? So in the same way, old habits change. So to try something, it is easy actually, but you have to say to yourself “I want to change certain things.” This is the first step. If you don’t take the first step, well, it will not come to you. And this first step, you must take and when you take it, take it with a strong determination that no matter what, you will achieve it through God’s Grace, knowing that He is with you. If you are doing something to please Him, He will help you. And I’m telling you, the Divine Mother is such a good help for that. Don’t miss a chance and even if you can’t, just ask Him for help or ask Her. She will come to help you because this is Her joy to see Her children awake, you know. Even in the simple things you do, She will come and help you. So just try.
