May The Real Seva Begin

May 2, 2012

Excerpt: You could say we are like candles. The body is the wax, the mind is the wick, but until the wick is lit by the Flame of Shiva, the candle cannot do its service, and our service is to remain always lit up by that Flame. Never let that light go out. That light will itself dissolve the ego and its sufferings, and its narcissism and its lack of understanding of the Real, and the flame itself will do the work, the flame itself will inspire the thoughts in the mind that will come as gifts to oneself and the world, the flame itself will give the power for the physical labor, the flame itself will create the love and the unity. So trust in Shiva, keep the Flame lit, don't make it something theoretical, but always be in the state of Karma Yoga.
