True Worship Is Unbroken And Continuous – Swami Chidananda

"True worship is unbroken and continuous," says Swami Chidananda. Living is worshipping. To live is to continuously adore the Divine, moment by moment, day by day, always through life. The Reality is invisible, unknowable. Whatever can be known is not the Reality. If you cannot see a place because it is in darkness, you throw a powerful light upon it and the place becomes visible. Similarly throw the mind inward, and begin to see the things inside. Just as a dog which is troublesome outside is kept in a room, similarly you should lock the mind inside. Only when the mind is purified, it becomes your guide. Till then non-cooperation with it is the best remedy. Swami Chidananda
