      You may have many problems in your daily life, and you have to face
      them. However, you can face any problems or obstacles very bravely
      just by relying upon God. You should always pray to God. Prayer is
      very important! Your prayer may be from any religion, or the deity of
      your choice¬óbecause God is One only. Don't think that Amma (Sri
      Karunamayi) wants you to be bound to one religion or one God. You have
      to work on that. You must not be bound by religion! You must overcome
      every limitation. Always have this in mind: God is One only. The bird
      which has lived in a cage is full of freedom when it is released. It
      feels peace when it flies in the vast open sky. Likewise, you must
      come out of this worldly bondage.

      The soul in your body has been restricted, just like a fish in a small
      tank of water. The whale is the biggest animal in the ocean. It is
      very large and very long. How would it be if it were caught and
      confined in a small tank of water? How would it feel? It has always
      been in the vast ocean, but we have captured and put it in a small
      glass aquarium. Similarly, your soul has been trapped in your body and
      become limited. But you are not the ordinary person you think you are.
      You all are like very great whales, and you must always be in the
      ocean of bliss!

      As long as you are in bondage to your body, to your country, to your
      city, to your children, or to your husband or wife, as long as you
      have these bondages, you will always be limited. And when you are
      limited, you are just like a bonsai plant. The bonsai, if planted in
      the open ground, can grow and become a very big tree, giving beautiful
      fruit or shade. But when it is confined in a pot, when the roots are
      cut off and stunted, it remains small. In the same way, when the soul
      is confined in the body, its growth is restricted. So, when Amma
      comes to you, She does not want you to be like a bonsai plant. She
      wants to take all of you from the small pots and put you in the open
      ground. She would like all of you to be full of freedom and liberation.

      You must also be full of wisdom in this spiritual life. You must have
      full liberty! Go wherever you want to go. Listen to whatever you like.
      Have full freedom in this, for there must be no bondage in spiritual
      life!
