Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Love Everybody as Your Own Self
"Once you see the peace and the light within you,
your perception is changed. You see that peace,
that light, everywhere. When you see the Atmic
bliss in you, you don't see anything else outside.
You see everybody as your own Self. Then, you don't
even think that you're helping somebody while doing
something for them. That means that you're doing
something for your own Self. At that level, you
become a better, more service-full person. You can
be useful to the entire humanity in a better way,
because you love everybody as your own Self. Only when
that realization comes, can one love in that way.
Until then, you love as the individual. You are
So-and-So, he is So-and-So and you're loving him
as your friend or as somebody. You can't love the
other person as your own Self if you don't realize
your own Self within you.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
