Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Shine More
"The same spirit is in everybody. The same current
runs through everyone. But it's the bulb with the
bigger filament that takes more current because of
its construction; by consuming more current, it gives
off more light. The illumination is measured according
to the size of the bulb, but the current is the same.
The divine current is common; it is not partial. It is
given to one and all: a sinner or a saint, a yogi or a
non-yogi. It is everybody's birthright. So, if you
broaden your mind, you become a bigger bulb and you
have a longer filament. Then you are able to attract
more current to give out more light. It's not because
the bulb is greater that the current wants to flow in more.
The current has no decision like that. It's up to you if
you have a broad mind, purity of the mind, you draw more
of the divine current and shine more.
"God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
