Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda

"We all need Self-knowledge and, with that knowledge,
we can make the best use of the mind and the senses,
as well as all the talents and capabilities we've been
given. First, know who you are: Who is the one who has
gifts and talents? Know that first, and then you can
feel that you have these gifts and you want to maintain
them. First understand yourself: I am somebody, I have
been given these gifts and I am enjoying them. I am not
those things out there. I am separate; I am the owner
of these things. That feeling should be there. Apply this
to the mind too: I am the owner of the mind, I am not the
mind. Sometimes the mind is playful, sometimes it's happy,
sometimes it's unhappy. It's my mind that is happy or
unhappy, not me. I'm different from the mind.
"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
