Who is it that loves?
"Who is it that loves and who that suffers?
He alone stages a play with Himself.
The individual suffers because he perceives duality.
Find the One everywhere and in everything
and there will be an end to pain and suffering."
One Vast Garden
"I find one vast garden spread out all over the universe.
All plants, all human beings, all higher mind bodies
are about in this garden in various ways ,
each has his own uniqueness and beauty.
Their presence and variety give me great delight.
Every one of you adds with his special feature to the glory of the garden."
Joys and Sorrows
"Joys and sorrows are time-born and cannot last.
Therefore, do not be perturbed by these.
The greater the difficulties and obstructions,
the more intense will be your endeavour to cling to His feet
and the more will your prayer increase from within.
And when the time is ripe,
you will gain mastery over this power."
Aspects of God
"God is without form, without quality as well as with form and quality.
Watch and see with what endless variety of beautiful forms
He plays the play of his maya with Himself alone.
The lila of the all pervading One goes on and on in this way in infinite diversity.
He is without beginning and without end.
He is the whole and also the part.
The whole and part together make up real Perfection."
