The noble and ignoble, the fallen and the sublime are all in God – Swami Chinmayananda

Today we are inhibited by habitual preoccupations with our own weakness and imperfections. We do not and dare not perceive ourselves any other way, and this impedes our progress on the spiritual path. However, a little serious thought can shatter that notion. If indeed the supreme consciousness, the lord alone is everything, what is there that can be rejected? Think! Can I exclude or reject the foam and spray from the splashy ocean, just because I don’t fancy it. The noble and ignoble, the fallen and the sublime are all in Him. To whichever quarter if may wander, the mind cannot but meet the Lord if one’s vision is trained to recognize the underlying divinity alone in everything.
