Once you were a child; now you have grown up. During the period from childhood up to now you have gone through moments of great joys and sorrows, Where has all that gone? The fact is neither joy nor sorrow was there; it is due to maya that you think of and experience things, which have no foundation. Within 20 or 30 years you will also forget the thoughts and events of today. So the best thing for you to do is just to love me. Love me honestly, work for me, I alone endure; all else is but a passing show! There should not be any trace of show in the work you do for me. You should have no expectations of reward for any work you do. In fact, I am much pleased and happy with your love and work. Don't worry.

There is no doubt of my being God personified. You love one another—as my workers, and then give that love to others. I know your family, financial and other difficulties.

You do not realize It. When you are asleep and dreaming and I give you a sharp slap in the dream, you become wide awake. Only then you do realize that it was all just a dream. If you serve others let your service be honest. Think of me always.
