Devotion


 

Give me not desires if they do not lead me to you.

Attaining the Divine depends on the intensity of your longing and not on the time you spend or your qualifications. A proverb among the villagers in India says, “It may take some time to pluck a flower, but it takes no time to meet the Divine.” Your abilities or qualifications are not the criteria—it is simply the intensity of your longing.

Immediately intensify your longing for the Divine. This happens when you know that you are nothing and that you want nothing. Knowing that you are nothing and that you want nothing brings a sense of belonging, and belonging intensifies longing. What is the difference between desire and longing? Desire is the fever of the head. Longing is the cry of the heart. — Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Be still and in the quiet moments,
listen to the voices o your heavenly Father.
His words can renew your spirit. No one knows you and your needs like He does.
–Janet Weaver
You, Lord, are all I have, and you give me all I need,
my future is in your hands
(The Bible, Psalm 16:5).
