The Vedas deal with rituals and worship, which imply a dualism between the worshipper and the object worshipped. Pure and selfless love towards all living beings, considering everyone as embodiments of the Divine, with no expectation of reward, is true Love. One need not search for spiritual power, going around the world and spending a lot of money. God is the Antharyaami (Indweller), and so, when He is sought in the outer world He cannot be caught. In this Kali Age, people have forgotten human values and exhibit animal qualities such as lust, anger, greed and hatred.
Man expects the New Year to confer on him and the world at large peace, happiness and prosperity. He who considers himself free is free indeed, and he who considers himself bound remains bound. Stop comparing yourself with others and approach each day with an anticipation of happiness. Your primary concern must be to understand whether you are real or unreal or what in you is real and what is unreal.
With this attitude, when one regards divinity as present in all beings, he experiences true love. Assert that you are unconquerable and free, that you cannot be tempted or frightened in to wrong.
Though you do not see the roots or know how deep inside the earth they are, you pour water round the trunk, so that it may reach them.
Cultivate them, give them fullest freedom to gush forth and fertilize all fields of activity, that is the real purpose of education.
Guru (spiritual preceptor) scatters darkness through light; he imparts wisdom which roots out our ignorance. One may study all the scriptures, perform all types of sacrifices, go on extensive pilgrimages, but it is not easy to control the senses and the mind, direct one's vision inward and maintain equanimity.
But, you cannot easily detach yourself from activity; the mind clings to something or the other. Constantly think yourself as being eternal, unlimited, Consciousness-Bliss, and you will be free and happy. Using biblical principles and practical applications, Joyce teaches readers how to develop a way of living that maximizes the positive aspects of who they are and how they approach each day.


To Joel ben Izzy, a professional storyteller for twenty years, stories are not only a way of life but also a way to heal. It is only when you have recognised the truth of your own being that you can recognise the world as illusory and your own self as the only reality. It is interpreted in different ways, but the real basis of the Adwaithik principle is Ekaatma Bhaava, the feeling that there is only one Atma pervading everywhere and none else.
Whatever be the vicissitudes one may face, whatever be the personal sorrows and privations one may undergo, true love will remain unaffected. So long as a trace of body consciousness persists in you, the search for God must continue. So you must use your strength of body and mind, wealth and education with intelligence, in order to realize the power of the soul.
The reason lies in the false emphasis we have laid on things of the material world, ignoring matters of the spirit. In ancient times, the sages and seers maintained purity in thought, truth in words and righteousness in deeds.
Spirituality aims at enabling a person to manifest in all its fullness the divine cosmic consciousness (Chaitanya) that is present both within and outside oneself. Make it cling to God, let it perform all actions for God and leave the success or failure, the loss and the profit, the elation or the dejection, to God. So long as you trap yourself in body consciousness you are like a lion moping about in a musty cave. In this altogether original book, ben Izzy takes us on a journey inside the world of stories and the lessons they teach us through their timeless wisdom. Recognize that similarly there is God as the very basis of Creation; pray to Him, and He will shower fruit. This is tragic; it is like the man who died of thirst though he was standing knee-deep in the running stream.
It means getting rid of onea€™s animal nature and developing the divine tendencies within one.
One may try to harm you while another may try to do you a good turn; treat both situations with equanimity. Do not be under the delusion that God is residing somewhere and that you have to search for Him; God is within you.
Everyday, when you take food, you are offering eatables to the Fire that God has put in you to digest food.


They are bound by the qualities they have developed and they are still in need of the Form so that they may conceive of Reality. It means breaking down the barriers between God and Nature and establishing their essential oneness. In one business venture, you may incur a loss while in another you may make a profit; treat them both alike.
In the same manner, the Divine is immanent in the entire cosmos in a subtle form as Chaitanya (Consciousness). One who aspires for the welfare of the world should see to it that his thoughts and actions are in accordance with his aspirations. I am all that is, was and will be.' Pettiness, ego, time and space - all will flee from your heart and you will realize your own Divinity. The Beggar King and the Secret of Happiness is that rare, magical book—a book that tells a good story but also shows us how the tales we learned when we were children shed light on our adult lives. Though you find myriad bulbs glowing, the current that is passing through them is the same. Pray to the Parabrahma Principle (transcendental principle) or God within you to reveal Itself.
Joel ben Izzy had the unusual opportunity to relive those lessons when he lost his voice and reconnected with his old teacher, Lenny, a retired storyteller. Only one who has such true love can be described as human, for, divine love is the basic quality of a true human being. Through his meetings with Lenny, Joel rediscovers the wisdom of ancient tales and takes us on a journey into a world of beggars and kings, monks and tigers, lost horses and buried treasures—and in the end tells us the secret of happiness.
While the Divine is in such close proximity to him, man in his ignorance goes about seeking God outside himself. And each one touches on universal themes--from the quest for truth to how to cope with life's disappointments.
Forgetting the supreme power of the Spirit, people rely on the powers of the body, the mind and the intellect.
