Become a kin to God, His kith and kin. Don’t aspire to be a wage-earner in God's household. Don’t demand wages calculated and bargained for. Work done for wages will not be as sincere and as joyful as that done through love and reverence. Brothers and sons don’t demand wages at so much per day, as their right! They are looked after nicely and well by the Master of the household; everything is found for them, whether they demand or not! Ananyas chintayanto mam, ye janah paryupasate Tesham nityabhi yuktanam, yogakshemam vahamyaham - “Whoever has no thought other than of Me, whoever always dwells in reverence to Me, with such, I always reside and for such I provide their wherewithal here and hereafter.” This assurance is given by the Lord in the Gita. Reading this assurance, many ask, “Well, we are doing this worship and that; let us see what He does for us in return." But, introspect: do you pay attention to the conditions laid down for the conferment of Grace? - Divine Discourse, Dec 1966.
