      Relying Solely Upon the Grace and Mercy of Radhasoami

      If Sat Guru grants His Grace and Mercy,
      Everything will work out. (Soami Ji Maharaj, S.B. Poetry)

      Unless and until Huzur Radhasoami Dayal chooses to grant His grace
      and mercy, nothing whatsoever can be accomplished. By His grace and
      mercy everything can turn out right. And mercy and grace He will
      shower, only when the Jiva [soul, disciple] acts with a firm faith in
      and reliance on His grace and mercy and adopts His Saran with the
      conviction that whatever is done, is done by Radhasoami, that is,
      when he gives up all other sources of strength and support, and
      relies solely on the support of Radhasoami Dayal both within and
      without, like a child relying on his mother. The child frolics and
      plays about hither and thither, but whenever he turns, he turns to
      his mother. Though unaware of her affection towards him, he,
      nevertheless, looks to her for support. In the same manner, although
      the Jiva is not aware of the omnipotence and high and exalted status
      of his parent Radhasoami Dayal, and of His love and affection towards
      him, he should, nevertheless always seek His support under all
      conditions of pain and pleasure, regardless of his own faults and
      blemishes. Radhasoami Dayal knows very well how great is the sway of
      Mana and Maya [mind and illusion] in this region, and that the Jiva
      is weak and helpless. As such, He takes no note of the errors and
      omissions of the Jiva, and showers mercy and mercy alone. Hence, one
      should give up all wanderings and entanglements and keep firm faith
      in His mercy, and should in no way let despondency get the better of
      one. Outwardly, the Jiva may make endeavors as he may like, but
      internally, he should depend on none save Him. When the mind becomes
      light and small, it will forthwith go and sit in the lap of Shabd.
