- You are not your thoughts. You are that which
witnesses your thoughts. For instance, if you
are thinking about money, you are not the money.
If you are thinking about God, you are not God.
If you are thinking about your enemy, you are not
your enemy. You are that which can witness these thoughts.
When you witness selfish, rude, mean, angry, bigoted,
impatient, hateful or any other type of sad thought,
you must simply ignore it or change it to a loving,
peaceful, gracious, divine one to be happy.
This is true free will. When we are not in touch with
our inner Witness and are identified with our thoughts,
we often suffer. When we witness our thoughts, we can
control our reaction and choose actions that bring joy,
peace, and love. Exercise this free will always and you
will live happily ever after.

Most of the times, we misunderstand God and interpret wrongly. For
proper understanding of Him, we should learn the divine knowledge
and practice it. The true spiritual knowledge will be preached by
Lord in human form only, like Jesus, Krishna and Prophet Mohammed.
His mission is to uplift human beings by preaching the divine
knowledge. We should participate in His mission as His servants
without aspiring anything in return. The practical participation (in
form of donating money and physically spending \by working) will
only prove our devotion.
Real love involves sacrifice. When we sacrifice ourselves and serve
our kith-kin we are getting enjoyment. Our enjoyment comes with the
enjoyment of our beloved, which clearly shows that the true love
