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.

Knowledge is a natural instinct of our soul. It makes us aware and alert, it helps us to enjoy the happiness in life and it makes us successful. A person devoid of knowledge will always remain shackled within the boundaries of life and death. Knowledge casts out all of the darkness of ignorance and leads us towards the path of salvation. Hence, knowledge is the most unique, pure and valuable virtue of life. Only A person with appropriate apprehension has the capability to differentiate between what is true and what is false, to weigh the feasibility and importance of the situations that life has to offer. Hence, such a person surrenders himself to God in all circumstances. He understands that it is useless to wander here and there in search of happiness and peace when it lies only within.
Now, how can one acquire knowledge and wisdom? Well, one can imbibe it through the continuous and regular self analysis and by constantly remaining in the company of learned but wise people. We must also continuously read scripture & contemplate to enhance our knowledge. This shall bring us enlightenment within. A society comprised of scholars always prospers and easily achieves its objectives.

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.

Once, a wealthy man came to Mahatma Anandswami. He was the owner of several factories. All his sons were pursuing the business well. His wife had passed away previously. In spite of prosperity all around, his heart was not at peace. His hunger and sleep had gone. He humbly intimated his distress and ailment to the great saint.
Mahatma Anandswami said, “In your life, you did give importance to action and labor but not to the emotions. Good company and hearing religious discourses only nourish the thoughts.
Now start giving away love, money and labor in order to remove the inner dryness. Give affection to all, go among the orphans and the poor, help them to be self-reliant. Put your physical efforts also in these noble works, as much as you can. Then see that your hunger will be returned to you and you will have a sound sleep.”
The rich man did accordingly and consequently the miraculous transformation, that he experienced, gave him a great peace and happiness which he had never experienced before.

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.
