The Lord values your attitude behind every action. Yad bhavam, tad bhavati – you become what you feel. Hence transmute every act into worship and derive maximum joy. Sai is in every being; so do not slight anyone. Revere and serve all to the best of your ability. When someone asks for water to quench their thirst and you offer them a cup, feel that you are offering it to Me; then, that act purifies and cleanses you. It is not the person in need that you serve, you are serving God who is in you and them. Karma(action) is the flower and Jnana (wisdom) is the fruit. The flower becomes fruit in fullness of time when you guard it free from pests. Charcoal is wood that was burnt under the baptism of fire. With time, charcoal transforms to white, light ash that flies in the wind. Rigorously purify your mind in the fire of wisdom until you gain success.
