How can we stay cool and calm in
spite of the troubles and sufferings
that we may encounter in our
daily life? Bhagawan lovingly
explains to us a divine secret, that
will help us significantly
Love is the fruit that grows on the tree of the Divine
Name. -- Baba
Do not get too much attached to the world, and too
involved in its tangles. Keep your emotions always
within check. The waves agitate only the upper layers
of the sea; down below it is calm. So too, when you
sink into your depths, you must be free from the
agitation of the waves. Know that most things are of
no lasting value and can therefore be brushed aside;
hold fast to the solid substance alone. Use your
discrimination to discover and distinguish lumber
from treasure. The Pranava japa (recitation of Om
and contemplation of its significance) will help to
calm the roaring waves. Gita affirms that when the
word 'Om' (Supreme Universal Reality) is spelt by
the dying with their last breath, they attain the Divine.
To be able to spell it then, dwell upon its sweetness
and significance throughout your life, from today.
Then the final Om that emerges from your lips will be
an offering that merges in Him!
