Thought and emotion are not separate entities. The way you think is the way you feel.
It is important to simplify the material aspects of your life so that the deeper dimensions of who you are can find expression.
Self-realization means to realize how foolish you have been. Everything has been right here within you and you did not get it.
If you treat your tools, including your own body and mind, with reverence, every activity will be a joyful and fruitful process.
If there is fear or confusion in your life, it is because you lack commitment. The very thought, “I am here in this world to do seva,” dissolves the “i” and when the “i” dissolves, worries dissolve. Seva is not something you do out of convenience or for pleasure. The ultimate purpose of life is to be of service. An uncommitted mind is miserable. A committed mind may at times experience rough weather but it will reap the fruits of its toil. When you make service your sole purpose in life, it eliminates fear, focuses your mind and gives you meaning.
