Some People Even Do ...

Some people even do not believe in God for they cannot see Him. They need the proof. However, they believe in air they cannot see.
Most of others who believe in God are not firmly rooted. They pray God when they have difficulties. They confine God to temples and other holy places but they forget that all beings are temples of God. Some believe in this too. Some people speak about " God is everywhere but their action is not in harmony with it.
Who in the world can mix white milk, green and other color vegetables, fruits and grains make the mixture red? We consume different color items but our blood is red.
When God leaves our body, people bury or burn it to ashes. This confirms that our body is inert. The God residing in us runs our body. He has given us free will to think speak and act. He is in passive mode. He comes to active mode when we place firm faith in Him, teachings of sages and other holy people. We need to believe and act with others as manifestations of God.--Rajni
Why do we fail to see Divinity within ourselves and in others? Bhagawan lovingly explains and teaches us the means to have that vision.
So long as you have a trace of ego in you, you cannot see the Lord clearly. That is the curtain which Saint Tyagaraja prayed to Lord Venkateshwara to remove from his mind. Egoism will be destroyed if you constantly tell yourself, 'It is He, not I’, 'He is the force; I am but the instrument’. Keep His Name always on the tongue; contemplate His glory whenever you see or hear anything beautiful or grand; see in everyone the Lord Himself moving in that form. Do not talk evil of others, see only good in them. Welcome every chance to help others, to console others, and to encourage others along the spiritual path. Be humble, do not become proud of your wealth, status, authority, learning or caste. Dedicate all your physical possessions and mental skills and intellectual attainments to the service of the Lord and to the Lord's manifold manifestations.
- Divine Discourse, Aug 13, 1964.
The man who is wrapped up in his ego cannot recognize God.
When ego goes, God appears! - Baba
