Friends! Have we ever tried to understand how beautiful Truth is? Even Just pronouncing the word gives us immense pleasure, its contemplation soothes our mind and if we imbibe and inculcate it in our nature then the resulting happiness and peace must be felt to be believed.
A Fib or a lie, on the other hand, is proportionally ugly and disastrous. It makes us into a non human and subjects us to the curse of God. The Ultimate is true and the intentions of the Almighty are pure and serene. God has given us this incarnation so that we can roam in his truthful paradise with pleasure and without fear. But alas! We are ignoring the purpose of our life. We tend to forget that this world is nothing but a reflection of our own thoughts.
Truth inspires us to have insight into our identity, it teaches us to reform our outlook, motivates us to improve ourselves so that our environment and surroundings become calm and congenial. If we become honest, the our world becomes honest. Therefore, it is very important to walk on the ground of truth  if one is to attain the welfare of  humanity.

Friends! We must live life as if it is an enactment or a play and we are nothing but mere performers on a stage.  This is exactly thinking like Saints who spend their lives as puppets at the hands of the Ultimate.
Gatey was a very famous actor of Germany. With the passing years he had gained a lot of experience and got so engrossed in his work that he started considering himself as only a person discharging his duties in the capacity of a performer. When he breathed his last, he had a very innocent and sweet smile on his face. Before leaving his body, he clapped loudly and gestured, “This is the end of a beautiful play, my friends! The curtain draws now.”

Friends! It is the foremost duty of each one of us to keep on trying and differentiating between fib and truth. Truth is the most invaluable gem of the spiritual world. The Supreme Being has equipped mankind sufficiently so that we become able to recognize the truth. Of course, in today’s materialistic world, it has become very difficult to identify the TRUTH. Therefore, we shall first have to be honest within our heart, speech and deed and only then can we pin point reality even through simple knowledge and instincts.    We must escape the myths and baseless thoughts as they unnecessarily cloud our mind, hinder our mental growth and spiritual development. As we sub-consciously tend to become slaves of these foolish notions we end up harming ourselves. We must not blindly follow them only because numerous others hold their beliefs in these thoughts, or merely because they have been adhered to by people since time immemorial. Rather we must weigh them on the basis of logic, fact & proof and then consider them, worth imbibing.

Spirituality and Materialism are both mutually related. One is incomplete without the other. The saint, even when living in a cave in the jungle, needs food, fire, clothes, bed, books, blanket, utensils, and many amenities without which it is difficult for him to survive. So, it must be understood that some materialism is being practiced even by those who are highly spiritual. Even the extreme materialists such as robbers and dictators practice some spirituality in the form of love and sacrifice for their families and loved ones. Amongst the attributes where as spirituality is considered as most true, pure and divine, materialism is considered as dark, impure, and ignorance.The combination of the two extremes is the middle path, giving rise to force, energy, and a desire to act. The dynamics of the universe is maintained by a perfect balance of these attributes. If Darkness is destroyed, man will become God and if Divinity is removed, the same man will become a devil. It is a sad thing that in either case, the human nature is lost. Humanity lies in the delicate balance of the extremes. Therefore, so long as human life exists, materialism and spirituality will both co-exist in man. Giving a higher priority to one is what makes all the difference. For the generous and kind people, spirituality is the primary preference, to the extent that they might end up neglecting the material basis of all things. On the other hand, the selfish people prefer materialism so strongly that they transgress all the ethical limits set by spirituality.
In spite of these facts, each of the two types of people – whether materialist or spiritualist, accept the other viewpoint and are often compelled to consider it.

Friends! We are the weavers of our own destiny. We have made our lives pitiful by becoming puppets at the hands of our own weaknesses and shortcomings. But we can overcome these with the help of our own conscience and perceptions. But, for this we need to go through a mental reformation. This mental reformation is the main foundation of a new era which is also a consequence of the thought transformation.
We face numerous problems and adversities in our lives, but we fail to understand that they are a result of our ignorance and frivolity. And the solution to these afflictions lies in awareness and enlightenment of the core of our hearts and souls.
A spider weaves its own web and gets entangled in it. But then it decides to break free and focuses its entire energy towards its freedom. It collects its own web in the form of a ball & swallows it whole. In the same way we have to loosen the knots of our adversities and become a free-soul. We cannot see these knots due to the darkness of the absurdity of our own minds. Once we decide and awaken our faculties, we would ignite the flame of our wisdom and would be able to open all the knots and set ourselves free.
