The oil in the lamp has finished. Only the burning cotton wick was emitting dim light was left. On seeing its dying moment, a householder couldn’t help asking it, “You have been guiding others by emitting your light for the whole life. You have been doing good to the world, yet when I see your such tragic end, my heart rends.”

The extinguishing lamp gathered its whole power and while emitting its glow for the last time, said, “Brother! In this mortal
world, one who is born is bound to die. We can’t escape death even after our all possible attempts. However, we can do only this much: we shouldn’t let the precious moments of our life go waste.”

Friends! The world is full of opportunities. But we are not able to benefit out of them. We can reap maximum benefits if we learn to mold ourselves to face the circumstances, we are passing through and prepare ourselves to avail the opportunities we see. A perfect co-ordination between the two leads to unmatched development of our character and disposition.
Here, what is primarily needed is, first a true and honest self analysis and then identifying the weaknesses. The final step is weeding out our weaknesses. After this we, each of us can reform ourselves and  and get a new rebirth with sound morals, principles and with a broad, modern and a flexible outlook.
We must also understand that to progress in life, planning is of utmost importance. Once a feasible strategy has been charted out, one must try to stick to it under any situation; eventually, success will follow. This implies that a person can elevate himself only by helping himself. Consequently the whole world will follow him.  The whole universe comes forward to help the person who is strong and determined towards his objectives.

SOHUM (I am That): Indeed potentially I am That Absolute Truth  - Consciousness incarnated in human form. Attaining higher spiritual levels are easy for me. I am a Sadhak (devotee) whom Yug Rishi has given an opportunity to do Sadhana towards Self-Realization.

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.

Friends! All of us must learn to practise love and compassion towards our fellow beings. We must imbibe such feelings within our conduct. Subsequently it will lead to happiness and peace all around.
It is our prime duty to love everyone in the same way as we love our parents, our children and our spouses. But, never should we expect anything in return, for as soon as we start expecting or demanding a price for our love, we exhibit a feeling of selfishness and ego. Hence, until and unless we discard envy, competition and comparison, we cannot experience the bliss of true and unconditional love.
