Your KINDNESS may be treated as WEAKNESS, Still be KIND.

Your HELP may go UNNOTICED, Still be HELPFUL.

If you are HONEST, People may CHEAT you, Be HONEST anyways.

If you find HAPPINESS, they may be JEALOUS, Be HAPPY anyways.

The GOOD you do TODAY, People will often forget TOMORROW, Do GOOD anyways.

Because it is between YOU and GOD. It was never between YOU and THEM!

Men are always mixed and there are qualities and defects min- gled together almost inextricably in their nature. What a man wants to be or wants others to see in him or what he is some- times on one side of his nature or in some relations can be very different from what he is in the actual fact or in other rela- tions or on another side of his nature. To be absolutely sincere, straightforward, open, is not an easy achievement for human nature. It is only by spiritual endeavour that one can realise it ? and to do it needs a severity of introspective self-vision, an unsparing scrutiny of self-observation of which many sadhaks or Yogins even are not capable and it is only by an illumining Grace that reveals the sadhak to himself and transforms what is deficient in him that it can be done. And even then only if he himself consents and lends himself wholly to the divine working.

Rahul Dravid on Patience -

?When I?m requested to speak to youngsters I like talking about this phase of my life and liken it to fascinating plant: The Chinese Bamboo. You can take a Chinese bamboo seed and plant it in the ground, water and nurture the seed for an entire year & not even see a single sprout. Infact, you?ll not see a sprout for 5 years. But suddenly, a tiny shoot will spring from the ground. And over the next 6 weeks, the plant can grow as tall as 90 feet. It can grow as fast as 39 inches every 24 hours. You can literally watch the plant grow.

What was the plant doing during these 5 years, seemingly dormant period, it was growing its roots. For 5 full years it was preparing itself for rapid, full growth. Without this root structure, the plant simply couldn?t support itself for its future growth. Some would say the plant grew 90 feet in 6 weeks, I would say it grew 90 feet in 5 years & 6 weeks.?

So keep watering and nurturing yourself. One day you will sprout and may be grow as fast as a Chinese Bamboo tree. No one becomes a mid night success, there are years of labor and pain behind that.

"God's delays are not god's denials."

You asked for an appropriate technique. When I asked for the meaning of that word, one called it "method," and another, "procedure." These two are not correct. The technique is vidhi vidhanam. What ought to be done is vidhi; how to do it is vidhanam. There is only one technique for Self-awareness. You have to have awareness that you are the atma, the Self. I refer to it as Constant Integrated Awareness. This Self or Atma is truly God. You are the embodiment of God. Here you should remember three things:

i) What is it that once it is had, is never lost? Jnana. In other words, when jnana occurs, that is, when there is awareness, it never is lost.

ii) What is it which once lost can never be had again? Ajnana, ignorance. When once ajnana is lost, you cannot have it again.

iii) What is it that is neither lost nor had? Brahmam, Self, Atma, this may be called "Self-Awareness."

Do? Why should he want to do anything if he was in the eternal peace or Ananda or union with the Divine? If a man is spiritual and has gone beyond the vital and mind, he does not need to be always "doing" something. The self or spirit has the joy of its own existence. It is free to do nothing and free to do everything - but not because it is bound to action and unable to exist without it.

It needs a quiet mind to know the Divine Will. In the quiet mind turned towards the Divine the intuition (higher mind) comes of the Divine's Will and the right way to do it.

Why should you try the same things as the others?
What one feels inspired to do, is the best thing for one.

How can you throw away the mind unless you want to disappear from manifested existence? It has first to be made quiet and open to the higher consciousness and transformed by the descent of the higher consciousness.
