Unless you give up, you cannot acquire – Sathya Sai Baba

Concentrate on developing the firm conviction that you are the Divine. With this conviction you can achieve anything. Give up the attachment to the body. Even scientists sometimes forget their body consciousness while absorbed in their experiments. If that is the case, why should the spiritually minded persons retain attachment to the body, which is made up of the five elements and is a container of all foul things.
Unless you give up, you cannot acquire – that is the rule of life. Even trivial things cannot be won without parting with something. One has to pay to secure the most precious of all gifts, the gift of the awareness of the Atma! To earn this, one has to give up sensual pleasures, but is this too big a price. In fact, what is renounced is not pleasure at all. It is fraught with pain too.
