Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- View SourceDon't Run After Anything
"Don't run after anything. Be content. A contented
man is a king of kings; a contented woman is the
queen of queens. She is the empress, because she
never wants anything. Who is the real king? Who is
the real queen? The one who never wants anything.
Even an emperor, if he wants to conquer another
country, still wants something. You are bound by
your possessions; the fewer possessions, the freer
you are. When you have no possessions, you just
fly high in the air, as light as possible. Every
desire is an anchor that pulls you down.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

The best way to clean your system is to use sound. Simply choose any holy name you like, and keep repeating it. Let your body vibrate with that frequency. In the beginning you have to concentrate on that vibration within you. But, as you continue, every cell in your body will begin to repeat your mantram or your prayer; then the whole system, the whole personality, body, mind, everything will vibrate on that wavelength. The holy word is like a radio wave.
When a mantram is given to you, you tune your personality to a particular frequency. It's just like tuning a radio. The cosmic music that comes from God is always being transmitted. God never stops transmitting all the beautiful things. Some simply don't tune their heart radios to the proper frequency. Instead, they tune it to the wrong frequency and get atmospheric disturbance.
With practice, you'll be able to tune your heart radio. You will become a good receiver. Only then is the proper communication possible. Communication brings communion. Real communion is possible only when you tune your entire personality to God's frequency.
Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi
