Words of Wisdom – Sathya Sai Baba


Like a bird that sees a lump of flesh in the far distance, but does not notice the net spread over it to catch it, man too sees but the charms of material objects; he does not notice the entanglements which they cause.

Man tries to map the craters and canyons and the volcanoes on the moon, but ignores the craters within his own heart; how then can he acquire peace?

Man undergoes enormous trouble to guard his wealth but does not spend an iota of energy to guard his inner consciousness.

Some people say that they are too weak to scale spiritual heights. But you have the strength to commit sins and do wrong actions. The strength required for good or bad actions is the same. In fact, it is more difficult to commit sin than to be good and meritorious.
