What you feel strongly about happens to you – Dada J P Vaswani

Identification with the body leads to the illusion that power, pleasures and possessions of this world can make us happy. But this is not true; instead, these material possessions only keep us in bondage — the bondage of avidya, ignorance. Once you are freed from this illusion, you will realise the truth of the Self, and move towards God-realisation.

The trouble is that we have a very wrong notion of humility; we associate it with timidity, self-effacement and lowliness in its worst sense! This is not true!

Being grateful makes us positive, happy and optimistic; it helps us see the bright side of life. It teaches us the art of appreciation.

What you feel strongly about happens to you. It is thought power that makes things happen. If you feel grateful for what you have, you will attract many more things to be grateful for. Gratitude is the very basis of the abundant law of attraction.

Some people think that there is no juice left in the orange to squeeze. Others’ with more faith and persistence make marmalade from the skin.

Who is the truly free man? He who desires nothing, expects nothing but accepts everything that comes to him in the will divine.
