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 all can merge back into this light....

You want liberation? Make it strong in your mind; make it strong deep inside your heart. Let it get fulfilled on the outside. You are this light and you all can merge back into this light. You have to want it, and this want has to be very, very strong. It has to be the most important thing in your life. There are many divine incarnations. They all come, they all teach, they all go. People at different times assimilate it in their own way. But we are living in such an age right now that it is very easy to attain Self-realisation.  We just need to be simple with ourselves. Simple in the mind. When I say simple, I mean just to love.  Make this love unconditional. This love that you have inside of you, the source of all things, let it flow.

Lighting the inner Lamp....

A clay lamp is very symbolic, actually. With the symbol of a clay lamp we say “God, you are the Light, but we are the batti – the thread.” This is the connection that we have with the Divine. The clay lamp is our body and symbolises that this body is just dust and dust it shall be. One day we will leave this body. We see it in 
ourselves, in little ones. Everybody says when we are small “Oh, how beautiful you are, little, little child. How cute he is.” Then the child becomes sixteen, the Mother comes and says “Oh, my God, the child is like this and like this and like this.” The child grows up and then they say “Oh, my God, my child falls in love” and all those stories and it carries on like that. You see, our body doesn’t stay the same. It changes, it evolves until at the end we leave it. The clay lamp that is burning symbolises this body that is like this clay holder and inside is the burning lamp, is the light burning, is the Love burning inside of you. So rise, make your intellect be illuminated by the Grace of God, by the Grace of the Divine Mother, so that in this life, you can take the opportunity and realise your Self. Realise where you come from, realise who you are in reality, realise your work, your mission and realise where you are going, what your real duty in life is. Let this light shine through you. Become a messenger of this Love, become a messenger of the Divine – not just limiting yourselves, being what your mind perceives you to be. That’s also why we light this lamp.

Words of Sri Swami Vishwananda...

If you fully believe in yourself, if you fully have trust in yourself, you will fully believe and trust in God. Then of course, the Divine will always help you.

You know what God wants from you? ...

Make the ultimate goal of your life Divine love, and surrender to it. You know what God wants from you? Surrender your mind to Him, continuously. Surrender your mind to the lotus feet of God, to the feet of your Guru, to the feet of any Divine master, and free yourself. Free yourself from the mind, free yourself from all the misery that you created. When you free your mind, you realise the Divine everywhere, in every aspect, in every small thing. Even the clothes you are wearing are divine. Each atom is divine. If you have divine eyes to look at the world with, you will see that it is just the radiated light of God shining through everything, but as 
long as you don’t come to that realisation, keep trying. Never lose hope. The moment you lose hope, you lose everything. The moment you say “No, I can’t do it, I can’t do this,” you will not be able to do it. Challenge your fear! Keep reminding yourself that you are a part of God. You are in His Divine hands and He will never let go of you. Never! He will be always near to you, even nearer than the breath, the air you are breathing in.You try to imagine a little bit with the mind, how close God is. It’s difficult, isn’t it? The mind will never let you imagine that.  Only when you start thinking with the mind of the heart – then you can realise the divinity completely.

The voice of God will not talk to you like in ancient times....

You just need to sit quietly and feel. Feel and listen, because when you feel of course, it’s not just feeling. When you are completely in silence, there is also the voice of God. The voice of God will not talk to you like in ancient times. He will talk to you from within you. Learn to trust this inner voice, and if you still have doubt about it, ask Him questions. Ask Him if it is really like this or like that. Then you test it yourself, so that you can learn to trust this inner voice. It’s not that you just hear it and accept it “OK, yes, it’s fine. It’s good like that.” No, you hear, ask certain questions and see if it is really happening this way, then give your full trust to it. This is one way of listening to your inner Self and to make it stronger and stronger.This example is given by the Virgin Mary Herself. When the angels appeared to Her and greeted Her with “Hail Mary, you are blessed among all the women. The Lord has favoured you that you will bear the Son of God inside of your womb” She didn’t say, “OK, cool, I like that.“ No, She said “How can this be possible? I have never been with a man.” So the angels were pleased with it, because this confirmed Her faith. She didn’t have doubt, but She questioned it. This is what the angels said “It will be done according to the Will of God. The Spirit shall come over you and overshadow you.”It’s important to learn to trust this inner voice, and to know for sure if it is real or if it is just a fantasy of one’s mind. You will do that by putting certain questions to that and yet you will be the observer of that conversation.

There will be lots of things on the way....

When you take a spiritual path, you have a certain goal and a certain determination. Nothing should obstruct you on your way and you should not allow anything to take you away from your spiritual path. If you have set your mind towards your goal for God-Realisation, go for it. There will be lots of things on the way, but be strong. Never lose hope and know that the closer you are to your goal, the more tests there will be. But with each test, know that the Lord is next to you, know that He is there always supporting you. He is there always to guide you. The Divine Mother and He will always be with you. You know they are… I will tell you something, they are like your guardians. They are always standing next to you. If they see that you really want it, they will be here to give you their hands, you know? Hold tight! Hold so tight that when the first wind comes and starts blowing, you don’t let go of the hand. If you let go of the hand you will go back. Then you will have to go, again through the same thing. When you hold the Divine Mother’s hand, She holds very tightly, I tell you, She doesn’t give up easily, but we Her children, very often we give up easily. So hold tight and reach your goal! Set a goal in your life. Set a determination in your life. Whatever you determine, whatever you focus on, you will reach it. Whether it takes many years – four years or whether it takes ten years – you will reach it.

Sri Swami Vishwananda talks about desire for God....

Let your only desire be focused on God, because the only desire of mankind, the only desire of the Spirit, is God. All other desires have limits. When you desire something and you want to possess it, the moment that you get the thing that you had desired, all your feelings are gone. You start disliking this thing, because it is not the Ultimate.  The only desire that will ultimately fulfill you is God, because he is unlimited in everything. In addition, in this desire for God, you will never have a question, whereas with the other desires you always have questions.
