God-love penetrates all illusion, while no amount of illusion can penetrate God-love. Start learning to love God by beginning to love those whom you cannot. You will find that in serving others you are serving yourself, The more you remember others with kindness and generosity, the less you remember yourself; and the less you remember yourself the more you forget yourself. And when you completely forget yourself, you find me as the source of all love.

 

Give up parrotry in all its aspects. Start practicing whatever you truly feel to be true and justly to be just. Do not make a show of your faith and beliefs. You have not to give up your religion, but to give up clinging to the outer husk of mere ritual and ceremonies. To get to the fundamental core of Truth underlying all religions, reach beyond religion.

 

Through endless time God's greatest gift is continuously given in silence. But when mankind becomes completely deaf to the thunder of His Silence, God incarnates as man. The Unlimited assumes the limited, to shake Maya-drugged humanity to a consciousness of its true destiny and to give a spiritual push to the world by His physical Presence on earth. He uses the body for His universal work, to be discarded in final sacrifice as soon as it has served its purpose.

 

God has come again and again in various forms, has spoken again and again in different languages the same one Truth—but how many are there that live up to it? Instead of making Truth the vital breath of his life, man compromises by making over and over again a mechanical religion of itas a handy staff to lean on in times of adversity, as a soothing balm for his conscience or as tradition to be followed in the footsteps of the past. Man's inability to live God's words makes them a mockery. How many Christians follow Christ's teaching to 'turn the other cheek' or to love thy neighbor as thyself?' How many Muslims follow Mohammed's precept to 'hold God above everything else?' How many Hindus 'bear the torch of righteousness at all cost?' How many Buddhists live the ‘life of pure compassion' expounded by Buddha? How many Zoroastrians ‘think truly, speak truly, act truly?’

 

God's Truth cannot be ignored; and thus by mankind’s ignorance and weakness a tremendous adverse reaction is produced―and the world finds itself in a cauldron of suffering through wars, hate, conflicting ideologies, and nature's rebellion in the form of floods, famines, earthquakes, and other disasters.
