God is not moved simply by sweet words. You must translate those sweet words into action.
The teacher must practice what he teaches, avoid what he wants his pupils to avoid; then only can his teachings affect the lives of those who are committed to them. Practice is most important; only practical example matters. When you practice what you preach, others will be inspired by your example. No one will care for the teaching of a person who does not practice what he preaches.The one form of knowledge that is most beneficial is practical knowledge which is relevant to everyone.
A man or an institution should be judged by his or its integrity based on whether the acts are according to the principles professed. The mind, the body, and the word –all three must work in unison. Don’t speak one thing and act another; don’t advise others to do a thing which you yourself do not practice.
The thought that arises in the mind, the word that sprouts from the tongue and the deed that engages the hand must all three be fully coordinated. Each one must be in conformity with the other two. They must be in unison with each other. If you have one plan in your mind and talk of a different one and execute something else, it is a false life, not a true one.
Furthermore, your thoughts, words and deeds should be filled with love. This is Divine love. God is not moved simply by sweet words. You must translate those sweet words into action.
