14627Weekly Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Jan 14, 2006"We are made to live and made to serve. But we
unnecessarily take the credit for ourselves.
We think we are making everything happen. It's
the wrong way of thinking. That's what you call
`ignorance.' When you put your name to something,
you become responsible. You make yourself happy,
or unhappy, because of that and you go through
turmoil. So, always remember you are here because
God wanted you to be here, to do His job. He has
hired you, if I could say so, and you are performing
His duties, until you get fired. That way, you will
always feel happy. You will know that God is working
through you. You will say, `Nothing belongs to me.'
You didn't bring anything with you; you are not going
to take anything with you. So, you're totally free.
Your mind has no chance of getting agitated, or losing
God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."
