Something to Think About
The Master always keeps an eye on us and never lets us go so astray that he cannot pull us back to the path again. Sometimes the winds of karmas do blow very strong, and we stagger and become lame and can’t walk straight; but again we get a push and strength to walk straight again. When a child starts learning to walk, he falls, but he gets up again; he falls again, but ultimately he learns to walk.
Maharaj Charan Singh, Spiritual Perspectives, Vol. III
The Master and the path should always be kept in view, and meditation must become our primary concern in this life. Our every action should reflect the teachings and build that holy atmosphere in which we attend to meditation and become receptive to his bounty and grace. To this end, we must adjust our entire life, for success requires a complete transformation of the disciple. We should keep a balance, and meet our worldly duties and responsibilities, but our spiritual duty to the Master is foremost. We learn to live on the edge of this world as spectators, and do not allow ourselves to be drowned in its sensual pleasures. We learn to be in this world, but not of it, by vigilantly keeping our attention directed towards our goal.
Maharaj Charan Singh, Die to Live
Every time you repeat a Name attentively, you are trying to rise up, and sooner or later the eye focus will become the headquarters of your attention. Patiently persevere, avoid hurry, and with a calm mind sit in the spiritual exercises.
Maharaj Sawan Singh, The Dawn of Light
