Re: My Life's Soul-journey
- Thank you for this message. Often I find myself working in
'irritating' situations (I visit people to clean their homes). I love
this job emmensly and feel that it's a real blessing from the Supreme,
although at times I find it difficult to 'block out' people's loud
music, cigarette smoke etc. I have the inclination to simply quit
certain jobs, but recently Ive felt that God is trying to get me to
see the very best in people and simply accept situations. His
protection is always there if we call apon Him. I have realised that
'acceptance' simply cannot be done without invoking inner peace. It is
the one single thing that enables me to accept a situation and
appreciate the good qualities in others, rather than trying to run
away. Thanks to Sri Chinmoy's teachings, I am discovering that we can
only truly be of any help to people, when we have inner peace.
Unfortunately there's no quick-fix, and our daily meditations are the
way to go of course. It will be a life-long process (many lives!).
God willing, I want to wait. I know it will be worth it in the end.

Who told you that you are unworthy? It is
absolutely untrue! You are already in God's
Vision-Boat, and He is piloting the Boat
cheerfully and proudly.
Let us try to know ourselves. Let us try to observe
what we truly are. Very often we feel that we are
insignificant creatures. We have nowhere to go,
nothing to achieve and nothing to give. This is
what we feel in our day-to-day existence. But
what we truly are is totally different from what we
feel. We are all God's children. At each moment,
God is pouring into us something divine and
something truthful. He expects much from us,
but nothing beyond our capacity. He knows what
we can consciously offer to Him. Right now, we
feel that we are weak, unimportant, useless. But
in God's Eyes, we are divine, we are fruitful, we
Little soulful efforts
Can make not only a good seeker
But also a perfect instrument of God.
