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.

When you pursue God-Realisation or Self-Realisation – no matter what comes, you have to be strong....

Let light shine from deep within your heart to everybody. Often people say “But Swamiji, we would always love to have this Divine Light shining through, but it’s so difficult. Am I right? No? You see if you want it to be easy, you will do everything and anything possible to make it easy. It doesn’t matter how hard it is, you will do it. But if you make yourself weak by saying “difficult”, this word, which is so very easily used – it is a barrier and we create this barrier – we make it difficult and then we say “Oops, it’s difficult.” It’s the same when you say something is easy. What happens inside of you? You build up this confidence. You put this self- confidence on yourself when you generate this energy inside of you “Yes, I can do it” and you receive the blessing of the Divine to do it also. On the other hand if you already make yourself weak, then God will say “What’s the use of me giving the grace to this person if he can’t handle it? He’s already weak. It’s of no use giving the blessing or the grace to that person.” Actually, we ourselves stop the grace then. How do you think the light will shine? I was telling you the story of Rama. You see, his life was not that easy. He was sent into the forest and of course He encountered many challenges, but his challenges, He faced them. He didn’t make Himself weak. He didn’t run away or go crying. He didn’t say “I renounce my mission. I’m finished with it.” It’s the same thing when you pursue God-Realisation or Self-Realisation – no matter what comes, you have to be strong. Through this determination of being strong, the Divine will give you the energy, but this part its not God who has to do it, but you who have to do it.
