Your anxieties and fears are veiling Him from you – Swami Chinmayananda

The Lord is ever with you. Your anxieties and fears are veiling Him from you. He is so near to you that you cannot see Him. You are in Him - with Him - at Him.
You are He alone!
Vedanta is the art of living, and can be pursued under all circumstances at all places whether it be in you house or in a factory or in the rice-field.
From time to time, take a Close and Honest look at yourself... It Pays!
Never complain about the number of hours you have put in, to do a job. Your nobility must estimate how much of you was put into each hour of your daily work.
Swami Chinmayananda
