Something To Think About
The whole creation is engaged in feverish and senseless pursuits. It suffers dismay and disappointment at every step. We shed plenty of tears for money, wife and children, and suffer agony and anguish through loss of them. But if we were to weep earnestly for God for only one day, we would surely attain Him. We pass our lives fruitlessly like a wageless labourer, who works hard the whole day and comes home empty-handed.
Sardar Bahadur Jagat Singh, The Science of the Soul
In the family, the members meet as travellers in an inn, some coming and some going – in their own time. The meeting and parting is determined by the karma of individuals – one comes as father, another as mother, another as son or daughter, and near relatives. Karma determines friends and foes, and karma has cast the mould of life. Everybody is running his own race.
Maharaj Sawan Singh, Spiritual Gems
Disease comes to us as a result of our past actions and disappears when it has done its work. We ought not to be disheartened during such moments. Rather we should receive cheerfully what is sent to us by our Master. But never take it to mean that we should give up medical treatment. Effort on our part is necessary, but we should not be sorry if it is not fruitful. The will of the Master, not ours, must be done.
Maharaj Sawan Singh, The Dawn of Light
