Man does not use his sense organs in the right way. He has eyes, but does not see what is good. He has ears, but does not listen to what is good. There is only one way of correcting him. He has to be shown the spiritual path and helped to cultivate the virtues of Truth, Love and Self-sacrifice. He must be weaned away from selfish pursuits and from arrogance and pride. His mind, which is the real culprit, has to be cleansed of all evil. He believes in the false and unreal, and does not relish Truth, Goodness and Beauty. He can acquire real peace and joy only when he turns his thoughts to God and away from the petty tinsel of the world. Without faith in God there is nothing that man can achieve, whatever his knowledge and wealth may be! (Divine Discourse, Oct 12, 1983)
