"Work to thine utmost, and then to thine utmost be resigned."
"Regard all thy moods as mere body moods; remain aloof, thou art the Soul."
"Be self-possessed and remain unattached. For what thou mayst think and
feel today may not move thee on the morrow ... in thy real nature, thou art
independent of both idea and emotion."...
"In Love and in Realization there are no barriers."
Voice of Divinity-
"There is a Love which knows no limits, which is everywhere, which is in the
presence of Death, and which is all tender even in the terrible. I am That Love.
There is a Love which is Unutterably Sweet, which welcomes all pain, which
welcomes all fear, which drives away all sadness, which is where so ever thou
dost search for it. I am That Love. Oh, I am the very Essence of That Love.
And O! My own self, I, That Love, am Thine Own Self, my nature is Love!"

How sublimely prompted by the Divine this book came to us! It was a
gift of Swami Jnananandaji and he told this story of Baba Shripadji.Swamiji
said that he used to roam with a young balyogi, who is a saint. And now
I know so many stories of his life. He could speak little English then, and
Swamiji knew only a little Hindi, but their language was mainly on a higher
Divine plane. One day, he said they were deep in a jungle, and out of Bal
Yogiji's mouth slowly came the words,"In The Hours of Meditation".
From a deep mood immersed in Divine Love, he made him understand
that there is a book ... in English, which most explains his own feelings.
Sometimes, Swamiji said, he felt he was in the presence of God Himself.
The bal yogi was so tuned to the Infinite! Swamiji spent two years trying
to locate this book. Even as I read it I could feel the presence of the bal
yogiji. for I knew him through Swamiji, and his vibrations are clear. The
book is most Divinely inspired and I can see why and how Balyogi Sripadji
could catch it's name through the either.
this beauteous attraction in all, so cleverly disguised. This is His game the
play of Life. To those of good fortune He reveals Himself for a moments
bliss, a hint of His depth, a glimpse of Infinite height, that one may discover
Thine own Nature and dispel illusions hold. Thy Nature is Divine!
Beyond the individual, which is just an idea that thou art confined to a
single form, thou art in truth Infinite! When you lose yourself, the idea
of being an individual, you shall be immersed again in God, you shall be One.
Indivisible! Like the rays of the Sun cannot be separated from the Sun,
so is the soul in God. .¸¸.•*`*•.✽
