Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- The Secret of Life
"Do you want to know the secret of life? It is very simple.
Play your part well. But, don't identify with that part.
How? Remember who you are. You have a role to play in life.
So act well but, at the same time, do not forget that you
are acting. Then you are always safe. If you forget one side
you are in danger. If you forget the spiritual side and think
that you are a completely worldly person, there's danger that
you'll be lost in maya (illusion). If you think that you are
completely spiritual and forget the world, then there is danger.
People everywhere will say you are madcap, crazy. So, remember
this and be in the world but not of the world.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
