Daily Thoughts and Prayers

 

October 19th

 

 

Salient Thought for the Day

 

      We should think and act in direct line. There must be no crookedness in our thought or action.

Lines to Memorize

 

      Those who are without discrimination and whose minds are always uncontrolled, their senses are unmanageable, like the vicious horses of a driver. But those who are full of discrimination and whose mind is always controlled, their senses are manageable, like the good horses of a driver.

                                                            ~Katha-Upanishad

 

Lesson

 

      Mind embraces that which is disturbing and undesirable; but it is not a natural state, not a natural state because we suffer when our mind is out of balance. We cannot take a destructive attitude without destroying ourselves. We cannot indulge in hatred, anger, jealousy, without working our own ruin. We must try to cultivate lofty thoughts and feelings. Then it will be impossible for us to do anything ignoble.

Prayer

 

      Revealer of all things!

      It is Your light that reveals all the hiddenmost parts of my being.

      Safeguard me against all ignorance and darkness.

      Fill my mind and heart with Your radiance,

      That I may walk on the path of life as You reveal it to me.
