True and great happiness is never outside

Fear, doubt, confusion and frustration are problems that we face when we want to be one with God. Being one with God means self realization – that all animate and inanimate is Supreme Truth. Fear, doubt, confusion and frustration are problems we create out of ignorance. As we are the creators of them we should find ways to destroy them.

True and great happiness is never outside.

When the search for God is turned inward, you will be surprised to know about the hidden sources of energy that you possess.

Avoid the craze to possess. All that is here is us.

Instead of wasting energy on condemning things that you dislike, put that energy to enjoy things that you really like.
