"Weekly Words of Wisdom" of H.H. Sri Gurudev Swami Satchidananda
"To quote the Bible, what does it say we need in order to see God? It
says 'Blessed are the pure in heart, they shall see God.' This is the
same thing said in every religion, maybe using different languages.
Ask yourself: 'What disturbs the purity? What makes me lose my
peace?' The simple answer is: 'My own expectations; I want something
for me.' But if we think of others, we don't have any need to get
disturbed. So, sacrifice the individual self. Once you do that you
see the same Self in every thing and everybody because the mind
becomes pure, calm. That helps you see the God in you or the spirit
in you and then see the same spirit, same God everywhere.
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
