SONG OF PEACE



"I am an instrument of God's peace and harmony in my world."

A musical instrument cannot play itself, but in the hands of a master musician, it seems to come alive with beautiful, soul-stirring music.

We ourselves are instruments through which God produces beautiful music, songs of peace and harmony, for those around us to enjoy. As instruments of peace, we are continually sharing the blessings of God's love that lives in our own hearts and minds.

The love and peace of God are waiting to play through us in an uplifting harmony of tranquil thoughts, words, and actions. Being God's instruments of peace, we understand that we are eternally one with the serenity of God.

In harmony with the peace of God within us, within others, and all around us, we bring every person on earth into our song of peace.

"Create in me a clean heart, O God."
- Psalm 51:20

Destiny


Eternal Sai - 219




Devotion should manifest itself in every action. Everything is done out of love for God and as an offering to God becomes devotion. The devotee is filled with love and shares the love with all the others. The nine different forms of worship are only means to cultivate devotion. But the goal of all of them is to experience oneness with the Divine.


(SSS XXI - Chap 6)

Eternal Sai - 218



Spiritual disciplines determine the character of a person. Character determines the destiny - whether good or bad. Character is built up by constant practice of good actions. Actions, in their turn, are based on one's thoughts and intentions. Whenever any thought arises in the mind, one should examine whether it is right or wrong, whether it will do good to society or cause harm to it. Actions should be based on such enquiry. It would be wrong to blame anyone for our misfortunes. Our thoughts and actions alone are responsible for our plight. If one entertains pure thoughts and does all actions with firm faith in God, he will be favored with God's Grace.

"When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step..."

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.”

A ladder has to be as tall as the height of the wall you want to reach; your ‘Sadhana’ (Spiritual Discipline) has to be as long as the time taken to reach the goal. When the walls are completed, the scaffolding is removed. When the vision of reality is attained all forms of spiritual discipline can be stacked away.
