The ego is a thorn in the throat of the seeker – Swami Chinmayananda



If we want to increase the love for the lord, then we must cultivate a relationship with Him.

The burial ground is creeping towards you every moment. There is no time to waste on regretting your past or being anxious for your future.

It is said "Learn from nature, her secret is patience". Instead of condemning yourself, patiently turn your attention towards the Lord; this is the secret of developing divine qualities.

The real Guru is the pure intellect within; and the purified, deeply inspiring mind is the disciple.

If a thorn is sticking in the throat, one cannot appreciate any food, which otherwise one could have enjoyed. Hunger is there. Food is also ready. But the hungry-one cannot eat. Because the painful thorn is in the throat. The ego is a thorn in the throat of the seeker.
