LET’S AIM FOR LOVE AND HARMONY

सतगुरु कबीर

 

Give up the pride of caste and clan and do heartfelt

devotion to God. Give up all your faults of lust, greed,

anger attachments, hate, ego and others.

Caste aside enmity towards everyone. This is the basic

principle of the saints.

 

You can see the logic in Satguru Kabir’s sakhi. If you

wish to live in loving harmony with all people, then these

defects will definitely block your achievement. Yet all

religions teach us to have love and harmony towards all

of God’s children.

 

In spite of the good teachings, most people find it difficult

to clean the heart and be pure inwardly, and manifest it

outwardly. This difficulty has been present for thousands of

years, and is still continuing in full force. I can see two main

reasons for the dichotomy that is present between spirituality

and religious education. The teachers of religion often do not

have the inner experience of Divinity, and the people do not

whole-heartedly seek to know the essence of spirituality. So

the world fumbles on hoping for better times!

 

May God intervene and awaken us to His Reality dwelling

intimately in our hearts. Satguru Kabir said, “uth jag musaphir,

bhor bhayi, ab rein kahan jo tu sowat hein.”
