Sathya Sai Baba – A Thought For The Day – May 8th 2010
The taste of food cannot be appreciated if the person is ill or if the mind is immersed in something else. Similarly, even if you are engaged in spiritual practices, you will not experience joy if your heart is filled with evil qualities. You can taste sweetness so long as there is sugar on the tongue. However, if there is even a tinge of bitterness on the tongue, your whole mouth tastes bitter. Therefore, those who aspire to attain the Holy Presence of the Lord must cultivate good habits, discipline and noble qualities. The usual accustomed ways of life will not lead you to God automatically. You must perform Sadhana (spiritual practices) to modify it suitably.
~ Sathya Sai Baba
