12955Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Jun 12, 2004"'Without You, God, I couldn't do anything. I am only Your humble
instrument and I offer my service to humanity.' That is what is called
sacrificing the result of your actions. Only that sacrifice is real
service. All other things are business. You do something; you get
something in return.
Instead of that, life should be motivated this way: 'I am here to
serve.' Or, in other words, 'I am made to serve--I am only a tool.'
Then your heart is always peaceful. There is nothing to disturb your
peace. As one of the saints said, 'I have eternal peace and bliss. I
have no suffering at all. Because all suffering is created by 'me'
wanting to get the reward. Once I give that up, I have no suffering at
all. I am always in bliss.'"
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
