While struggling in the spiritual field, you should take the Lord Himself as your protector. To instill courage in the child, the mother persuades it to walk a few steps and turn, but she won’t allow it to fall. When it stumbles and is about to lose balance, she hurries from behind and catches it before it falls. The Lord (Iswara) too has His eyes fixed on you, the individual (jivi). He has in His hand the string of the kite, humanity! Sometimes He may pull it, and sometimes He may loosen the hold! Whatever He does, be confident and worry-free, for it is He who holds the string. That ever-present faith and that feeling hardening into an inborn desire (samskara), will fill you with the essence of love (prema-rasa). The string that binds you and God is the bond of love and grace. Strive to earn such auspicious mental desires so your bond of love and grace exists and is firm. (Prema Vahini, Ch 29)
