Message for the Day…”Where there is love, there can be no fear, no anxiety, no doubt, and no restlessness (ashanthi). When you are afflicted with ashanthi you can be sure that your love is tainted with selfishness and your love has some ego mixed in it”

The bee hovers around the lotus, then sits on it and enjoys the nectar; while drinking, it is silent, steadfast, focussed, and forgets the world. People too behave like that when they are in the presence of God. The hum of the bee stops and is silent as soon as it sips the nectar. People too, argue and assert their opinion, only until they discover the sweet Divine Essence (rasa). That rasa is prema-rasa (the essence of love). Where there is love, there can be no fear, no anxiety, no doubt, and no restlessness (ashanthi). When you are afflicted with ashanthi you can be sure that your love is tainted with selfishness and your love has some ego mixed in it. The one that experiences divine love is the inner ‘I’, which is the reflection of the real ‘I’, the Soul (Atma). Senses are your deadly foes. When your senses are out of action, then the ‘I’ will shine in its full glory.
