Date: Saturday, March 09, 2013THOUGHT FOR THE DAYIf there is a boil on the body, we put some ointment on it and cover it with a bandage until the whole wound heals. If you do not apply the ointment and tie a bandage around this boil, it is likely to become septic and can cause greater harm later on. Now and then we will have to clean it with water, apply the ointment again and put on a new bandage. In the same way, in our life, there is this boil which has come up in our body in the form of 'I, I, I..'. If you want to really cure this boil, you will have to wash it every day with the waters of love, apply the ointment of faith on it and tie the bandage of humility around it. The bandage of humility, the ointment of faith, and the waters of love will cure the disease that has erupted with this boil of 'I.'Date: Friday, March 08, 2013Yesterday's thoughtThe most important reason for bondage is giving too much freedom to the mind. For example, when an animal is tethered to a post, it will not be able to go to another place. It will not be able to show anger or violence or do harm to any person. But if it is let loose, then it can roam over various fields, destroy the crops, and cause loss and harm to others. It may also get beaten up for the harm caused by it. So too, if you turn your mind towards worldly objects, it will descend to the animal or even demonic nature. The same mind also can make you rise from the level of the human to the highest level of Divinity. Hence regulate your mind by following certain rules of discipline. In doing so, you will not go astray and can maintain a good name and lead a happy and useful life.Join Us on FacebookJust a reminder, if you are on Facebook then you should join our Sai Ram Facebook-page.
