Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Be an Instrument of Peace
"I heard Mother Teresa say: `I'm nothing but
a pencil in God's hands.' St. Francis begged
God: `Lord, please make me an instrument of
your peace.' We are all instruments of God.
The animals, plants and other species don't
seem to know that they are doing somethingthey
just are instruments. That's why they are safe.
As for we humans, God has given us the capacity
to know that something is happening through us.
This is probably a challenge placed before us
by God: Take the credit or pass the credit?
Those who know that God is working through them
and that they are only instruments are the ones
who have the highest wisdom. By acquiring that
wisdom, we will live in constant peace and happiness.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
