MATRI VANI | VOL II | PART I | 48 + 51 | ANANDAMAYI MA
|| < : GRIEF ? OR JOY & PEACE ! : > ||
Bereavement and suffering , pleasure and pain are generated by delusion ; whereas one's journey through life must be directed towards the Supreme Being .
When GOD is found all is found — contentment , peace , bliss . Evil-mindedness is due to the notion that GOD is far away .
So long as you do not see GOD in everything , make a supreme effort to be vowed to the uninterrupted thought of GOD .
GOD is present in all practices and actions ; GOD manifests as action — try to remain ever aware of this !
Brooding over grief , which is but the result of delusion , makes it spread and increase like a creeper — bear this in mind !
One should keep the mind free from cares , and worries and be ever full of inner joy — this is the important thing ! One should invoke GOD with the mind and heart and voice in whatever way and by whatever words that come easily .
Why only mornings and evenings ? At every moment ! For this is indeed the unfailing panacea for every kind of trouble . GOD is the Supreme Parent , Friend , Beloved , all in one .
All names and forms as well as the nameless and the formless are GOD's .
Therefore , one should make use of any expedient or device that may aid one to sustain at all times in one's heart and mind the remembrance of GOD and thereby to find peace .
