Dhusthara bhava saagara tharanam"
I do not need your flower garlands and fruits, things that you get for an anna or two;
they are not genuinely yours. Give Me something that is yours.
There are four types of persons;
The 'DEAD,' who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist, independent, free, self-regulating and self-directed;
The ‘SICK,' who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the usual sources of succour;
The 'DULL,' who know that God is eternal companion and watchman, but who remember it only off and on when the idea is potent and powerful; and lastly,
the 'HEALTHY,' who have steady faith in the Lord and who live in His comforting creative presence always.
They are like the iron and the magnet. But if the iron is rusty covered with layers of dirt, the magnet is unable to attract. Remove the impediment; that is all you have to do. Shine forth in your real nature and the Lord will draw you into His Bosom.
