      "When a saintly person gives you something, he or she doesn't expect
      anything in return. It's just like everything in nature. Does nature
      expect anything from you? A tree gives its fruit. Does it look for a
      thank-you note from you? No. The cow gives milk. Rain falls and
      nourishes our crops.

      The entire nature constantly gives and gives and gives to us, but it
      doesn't expect anything in return. Any kind of expectation creates a
      problem. We should accept, but not expect. Whatever comes, accept it.
      Whatever goes, accept it. The immediate benefit is that your mind is
      always peaceful.

      You won't blame anybody. You won't praise anybody; you'll have a
      well-balanced mind

      God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."

        What Makes You Beautiful?

        "The more you worry about your weight,
        the more sick you become. The worry itself
        causes increase in weight because many
        people eat a lot when they worry. The more
        you think of weight, the more weight you
        will have. As you think, so you become.
        Worry is the most dangerous disease. Keep
        the mind healthy always. If someone doesn't
        want to like you because of your weight, that
        person is interested only in your flesh, not
        in your qualities. What will make a person
        beautiful? The beauty of wisdom that dawns
        through tranquility of mind. We have enough
        troubles and worries. Yogis should not be
        bothered with weight issues. Let us think
        of more important things in life that could
        bring peace, joy and harmony.

        "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
