Sathya Sai Baba – A Thought For The Day – May 3rd 2010
A farmer clears and levels the land, removes the stones and thorns, ploughs and prepares the field, manures and nourishes the soil, waters and applies fertilizers on it. Then he sows the seeds and transplants the saplings. This is followed by the process of weeding and spraying of pesticides. Finally, after a long wait, he reaps the harvest. Once the crop is harvested, he then winnows it, threshes it and finally stacks the produce. All these various processes are for the sake of feeding the stomach. So too, one must feel that hunger & thirst, joy & sorrow, grief & loss, suffering & pleasure, food & appetite are all but impulses that impel us towards attaining the Presence of the Lord. If you have this attitude, no sin will ever tarnish your actions. Over time, these impulses too will vanish, without a trace.
~ Sathya Sai Baba
