Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- View SourceDon't Have Faith in Your Fear
"Fear is not going to help us in any way.
Fear makes the mind lose all its strength.
Remember, even to have fear, you must have
faith in your fear. However, you should know
that fear is not going to bring you any benefit.
Anything can happen at any time. Right now,
though, you are alive, you are fine. Why don't
you enjoy the life that you are living now
rather than worrying? By giving into fear,
you are making yourself miserable. Faith and
fear don't go together. Either you have faith,
or you have fear. Why don't you enjoy the now
instead of worrying about the future? Learn to
live in the golden present.
"God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi."

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
