Devotion does not mean being trapped in false beliefs and superstitions – Wisdom Nuggets

If you wish for anything other than Supreme Truth (God or Brahman), it will ultimately end in disappoint and misery.
If it is meant to happen, then it will just happen – many of us have this attitude. An even better attitude is to take charge and attempt to make it happen without worrying about the end result.
Devotion does not mean being trapped in false beliefs and superstitions. True devotion is inward journey. Realizing that am part of the Supreme Truth and all that is here is Supreme Truth.
Negative emotions, negative thinking, negative perception can be prevented by having true faith.
