The foundation of spirituality is not blind faith – Sri Mata Amritanandamayi

God is not confined to a temple or to a certain place. The divine is omnipresent, omnipotent and can assume any form. Try to behold your Beloved Deity in everything.

God is not a limited individual who sits alone up in the clouds on a golden throne. God is pure consciousness that dwells within everything. Understanding this truth, learn to accept and love everyone equally.

The foundation of spirituality is not blind faith. It is sincere inquiry; it is an intense exploration within one’s own Self. Faith in a higher power helps us to control our mind and thoughts.

What we need is faith in a supreme power that controls the entire universe, that is beyond the mind and senses and that makes even the intellect function. We should inquire into the source of that Power, which exists within ourselves. Faith in that Cosmic Power, together with meditation to know that Supreme Power, will help us attain knowledge of the Self, unit, peace and tranquility.
