Something to Think About
The secret of success in the path is “Bhajan, more bhajan, and still more bhajan.” (Practice, more practice and still more practice.) With bhajan only for three hours, the scale will always weigh heavily on the worldly side. You ought to become wholly and solely God-minded. Throughout the day, no matter in what occupation you are engaged, the soul and the mind must constantly look up to him at the eye centre. All the twenty-four hours of the day, there must be a yearning to meet the Lord, a continuous pang of separation from him. Nay, every moment, whether eating, drinking, walking, awake or asleep you must have his name on your lips and his form before your eyes.
For the past countless ages, we have been separated from him and have been wantonly wandering out. We have been so much chained and dragged by the mind and illusion that we have completely forgotten the Lord and our divine origin. We need a complete reorientation. We must tell our mind that in thousands of lives have we acted according to its behests, and now we are determined to dedicate this life to God and God alone. Every spare moment must go to bhajan. Now all our time must be his.
Maharaj Jagat Singh, The Science of the Soul
Money has entangled us to such an extent that we don’t understand anything. Yet we cannot survive without it. Even for acquiring necessities we need it. But don’t go and become its servant – make it serve you. Whether you get a lot or a little, it doesn’t matter.
