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.

Friends!If you possess any skill then liberate it from any kind of doubts and fears. Just surrender yourself and your skills to the Supreme Being and witness them getting even further expanded and polished. Once you surrender totally, it would be like sowing a seed in the fertile soil. The seed shall become a huge tree and benefit thousands of people.
Charity and benevolence never decrease your wealth. In fact once you share your assets with others, be it money or even a kind intention or a humble gesture, or even a smile, it is bound to come back to you multiplied by several times. Here, care must be taken that you shall not impose anything upon anyone. Whoever acquires happily shall be welcomed and endowed.
A word of praise uttered by you for anyone gives pleasure to him as well as it makes your own life resplendent. As we see that one lit candle can light thousands of other candles keeping its own flame bright and alive, in the same way a single word or gesture of truth either said or done pleases everybody and produces divine merits in all.

The Supreme Being wishes to make arrangements for the transformation of the Era. The greatest foresightedness of awakened souls amongst us is to come forward and extend their hand. In coming days, none will be able to have his own wealth. It is definite that the government (community) will be the owner of all money and property. Everyone will earn his bread diligently. One may note it down as a definite prophecy to happen. Future will prove this fact as true verbatim. I feel, I must request the thoughtful people of the present age insisting, not to waste time in the complications of raising  capital and hoarding property for their future generations. We have seen the end of kings and landlords in India and elsewhere with our own eyes, now these eyes must get ready to see the event of declaration of personal property as public.

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! Donation and charity are two means which provide us enormous opportunities. If we donate we experience mental peace and our soul is contented. But we must be cautious as to donate only to the needy persons. If we feed who is already overfed, he would fall sick. Hence,its useless being benevolent to those who do not deserve.

All of us are too scared of death because it seems like a demon. But, what is more perilous and dreadful than death is watching our fellowmen suffer while we do nothing for their betterment. We must engage part of our time in helping others in whatever manner we could. But, this should never be to get back name and fame. Rather it should be for our own self-improvement. Thus it would not be right to give any credit to ourselves as it inflates our ego. We must understand that benevolence helps none but ourselves. It teaches us to be patient and noble. Even if we refuse to donate, it would not make any difference to the society because the Supreme Being has bestowed everyone with adequate means for survival. Here our meager donations do not matter much, but, we might lose an opportunity to help others and eventually ourselves.
