Thought for the Day : 25th February 2014

Sathya Sai Baba
The path to God is difficult, but you can win. Let God do whatever He wants. Surrender to Him and say, “I brought nothing with me! Whatever You have given me, I offer it back to You.” You may think your parents gave you the body. Who put life into your body? Who makes your heart tick incessantly? You may feed the body with tasty food but who digests all the food you eat? Who is the driving force behind the circulation of blood? God Himself regulates every single act within every living being. The eye that is not even an inch long can clearly perceive the stars, far away in the sky. Who gave this little eye, this big strength and power? God alone has conferred and is conferring everything upon you. With your little ego, you are confused that you are the doer. This is the greatest ignorance. Whatever He gives, accept it, it is for your highest good.
- Divine Discourse, 'My Dear Students', Vol 2, Ch 4, Apr 22, 2000.
When you are cutting vegetables for cooking, remember that you are cutting your desires and ego with the knife of wisdom. - Baba
