No position or power that you cling to will ever give you peace or
protect you at times of loss, of separation, of sadness or disease
. . . But if you love God and if you truly love others, you will have
consolation inside, an assurance that nothing can trouble you.
We may not fear God at all—why should we fear Him? But we have to love Him.
Without loving God, how can we love our fellowman? On what basis would we
love others? If I say to love all your brothers and sisters, it sounds good
but it is very difficult to achieve. The relationship of brothers and
sisters is only valid when there are parents, and parents in this case would

joining factor: the One Who created us. Without loving Him or Her, how can
you love your fellow-beings? Only by loving God can we truly love others.
Love for all is possible because you love the Spirit the Light or God.
We need to understand the material plane and that peace and fulfillment work

were to become greedy and try to accumulate more than I can enjoy, I cannot

ignorance. Man is trying to have something that does not belong to him and
since it does not belong to him, he will never get it. Even if he gets it
partly, he won’t retain it. Even if he retains it, he will eventually leave
it behind. Therefore, it is an exercise in futility and peace does not come.
Raising our consciousness is actually tempering the mind to come to its true
