Do not say, “I will meditate on the Cosmic Being tomorrow.” That tomorrow will never come. Begin your meditation today. Today’s practice will stimulate the desire to meditate tomorrow deeper, whereas this day’s negligence will weaken your craving. Do not be lured by bad habits and paltry useless-vanity-engagements into crowding out God-contact.

The world creates in you bad habits, but the world will not stand responsible for your actions springing from those habits. Then why give all the time to the world? Reserve even an hour a day for actual soul to soul God-realization. Doesn’t the Giver of the world itself, of your family, money and everything, deserve one twenty-fourth part of your time?

Your greatest and most important engagement is with God and seeking His Truth through the eyes of wisdom and daily discipline!"

Om Shanti,
