“Why do you worry without cause
Whom do you fear without reason ?
Who can kill you?
The soul is neither born nor does it die.
Happened for the good.
Whatever is happening,
is happening for the good.
Whatever will happen,
Will also happen for the good only.
You need not have any regrets for the past.
You need not worry for the future.
What did you lose that you cry about ?
What did you bring with you,
which you think you have lost ?
What did you produce,
which you think got destroyed
You did not bring anything.
Whatever you have, you received from here.
Whatever you have given, you have given only here.
Whatever you took , you took from God.
Whatever you gave, you gave to him.
You came empty handed,
You will leave empty handed.
What is yours today,
belonged to someone else yesterday,
will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought,
That this is yours.
It is this false happiness that is
the cause of your sorrows.
Change is the law of the Universe
What you think of death is indeed life
In one instance you can be a millionaire
In the other instance you can be steeped in poverty
Yours and mine big and small,
Erase the ideas from your mind
Then everything is yours and
You belong to everyone
This body is not yours neither are you of the body
The body is made of fire , water , air
earth and ether and will disappear into these elements
But the soul; is permanent – so who are you ?
Dedicate your being to God
He is the one to be ultimately relied upon
Those who know of his support are forever
Free from fear , worry and sorrow
Whatever you do,
Do it as a dedication to God
This will bring you the tremendous
experience of joy and life- freedom forever.
