If you are leading a spiritual life, then at
every moment, God comes first in your life.
To an ordinary person, God does not come first.
Prosperity, power, importance, fame and other
things come first. But a spiritual person says,
"God has to come first; the inner life has to come
first." As we sow, so we reap. We sow a seed and
it germinates. Then it grows into a huge banyan
tree. So our inner life must come first because
everything in our outer life, whether or not it is
spiritual, is a result and an embodiment of our
inner life. A spiritual person feels that the inner
life is of paramount importance and that it has to
come first. An ordinary person feels, "No, the
spiritual life is vague and meaningless. Let us
enjoy life. Let us possess and be possessed. Let us
enjoy the world and let the world enjoy us. There
is no bridge between the spiritual life and the
ordinary life." But a spiritual person sincerely
cries, "Let me realise the Truth in its own way and
then bring down the Truth into my outer life."
The Truth is within, but it has to be felt and
expressed outwardly also.
Unless you put God first
In everything you do and say,
Your aspiring life
Will wither away to nothingness.
