Study Circle Topic “Desires limit your happiness”
Keep the mind away from low desires that run after fleeting pleasures. Turn your thoughts away from them and direct the thoughts toward permanent bliss, which is derivable from the knowledge of the immanent divinity. Keep before the mind’s eye the faults and failures of sensory pleasures and worldly happiness.Jnana Vahini, Ch.27, p.27http://www.sssbpt.info/vahinis/Jnana/Jnana25-27.pdf
Constantly contemplate on God. Then you will always be happy physically, mentally, and spiritually. Unfortunately, nowadays you are losing such a divine quality of bliss due to various desires. If you can keep these desires away from you, you will always be blissful.Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.38/Ch.1: January 14, 2005http://www.sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume38/sss38-01.pdf
If you close the door of the heart on evil qualities, they cannot enter it. You should not get angry with anyone, nor criticise or harm anyone. If, for any reason, such circumstances arise, control yourself. When anger overtakes you, put it down immediately considering it as your enemy. It is said, anger is your enemy, patience is your shield of protection, happiness is your heaven. Fill your heart with love and compassion. If you have love in your heart, you will see God everywhere. Bereft of love, you will see only devil. When you develop firm faith that God is in you and you are God and that your body itself is the temple of God, then there will be no scope at all for anger, jealousy, pride, etc., to trouble you. Hence, Bangaru! Develop love and compassion.Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.39/Ch.7: May 2, 2006http://sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume39/sss39-07.pdf
Once you develop love, there will be no scope for evil qualities like anger, jealousy, etc. If your thoughts and actions are good, your future is bound to be good. Then the whole country, nay, the whole world, will prosper. Pray for the peace and prosperity of the entire world.Sathya Sai Speaks, Vol.33/Ch.7: April 5, 2000http://sssbpt.info/ssspeaks/volume33/sss33-07.pdf
