Without delving deep into the significance of all that happens around them, people lead superficial lives. If only people meditate on the reality of one’s own existence, knowledge and joy, they will establish firm contact with the Source of all existence, all knowledge and all bliss. Without taking the first step towards self-inquiry, how can one derive self-satisfaction, infinite power and wisdom? You have it in your power to make your days on earth a path of flowers, instead of a path of thorns. Recognise the Divine Resident in every heart and life will be smooth, soft and sweet. God will be the fountain of Love in your heart and in the hearts of all with whom you come in contact with. Adore everyone as you adore Sai. Allow the other person as much freedom as you like to enjoy; do unto them just as you would like to be done to you. That is the sum and substance of Sadhana. (Divine Discourse, May 11, 1975)
