Whatever spiritual practices (sadhana) you follow, simply stick to that. Do not keep changing these. Whoever you believe in, whatever you do regularly, keeping doing that. Do not stop it. Do not give up your spiritual practices (sadhana). With a true heart, become engaged in God. All will be fine, just keep continuing to do your spiritual sadhana, day and night and at intervals call out to Him “Oh My very Own, let me never forget You”. “He Naath! He Mere Naath! Mein bhooloo nahin” If there is any doubt, you can ask me. However much you can do; that you are able to do; just keep doing, remaining engaged
in only God.
This is a wonderful opportunity for us. With a true, simple, straight-forward heart, simply call out to Him. ” Oh Lord ! Let me never forget You.” If you like reciting God’s Name, then do that. At intervals, in between, simply call out to Him. Whatever be your relationship
with God, keep that bhava (expression, feeling, inner sentiment) firm and alive at all times. Whatever it be, remain firm in that bhava and keep doing your devotional worship (upaasana), and all will be alright. “He Naath, He Mere Naath”… My Lord, in this world, no one is mine, and I am no one elses. Only You are mine and I am only Yours. Just like
Mirabai said – “Mere toh Giridhar Gopal, dusero naa koyi”. Remain immersed and
continue without any break, and everything will be alright. He Naath Mein Bhooloo Nahin”
Rejoice, dance, chant, sing in His company and continue to call on Him. If you like name of Ram, then chant “Ram Ram” Whatever name of God that you like, with a true and simple heart, chant His name and say to Him “You are My very own.” Day and Night continue this. There is no other “real” work. We all have just one work. Simply call out to Him. God will provide for everything (Gita 9:22). Hey Prabhu, Hey Prabhu, Hey Prabhu… Call Him and do not worry. I am Yours and You are Mine.
With His grace, you will get good satsang (association with Truth), simply depend on only Him – “Ek Aasaro, Ek Bal, Ek aas vishwaas…. ” Do not leave Him, just go after Him, remain engaged in Him. You don’t need to go to many places, to read many books. There is great strength in calling out to Him. “He Naath, He Mere Naath, Mein Bhoolon Nahin”. “Oh Lord! My very Own, Let me Not Forget You.” You must have complete faith in this calling and you will get good (holy men’s) company, divine messages and more. But the main point is “I am God’s”. There is no need to ask anyone else. Just call out to Him. With a true and simple heart, call on Him. You may appear crazy to the world, but do not
worry. Let your heart be true and pure in this calling.
Do not worry about any thing at all. He is there for us. You can die without food, but you can also die by eating food, so what is the worry? Have dependence on only Him and there will be nothing lacking in your life. He will take care of everything. Don’t listen to anything else, just get engaged in God. However a child may be, the mother will love him, and the child too loves his mother whether she is ugly or not well dressed. It is the same with God. However we are, he loves us because we are his very own. This is absolutely true. It is
God’s grace, many have wondered how did I ever reach here? It must be God’s grace. Therefore call out to Him. Our very own God, You are Mine, Mine, Mine. God listens to everyone’s calling. “Sab ki sune pukaar”. He knows even your most intimate thoughts. He knows everything. Therefore simply call out to Him. There will be joy and bliss in every calling. “Chinta din dayaalu ki, mauso sadaa anand”. Simply ! Do Not Worry !! Does a child ever worry? We are His children, there is nothing to worry. This world is God’s. Everything is God’s.
It is because we consider something as ours that we became stuck; we become bonded. Freedom is not considering anything as ours. God takes on many forms. Only He knows “Baddhu Tu Jaane che.” “Everything! only You know.” I do not know anything. I only know that – “You are mine and I am Yours.” Therefore call out to God with a true and simple heart.
