Make Your Life a Song of God
By Guru-Bhakti-Ratna Kumari
you want to be eternally happy and peaceful in life? Then try to
make Your Life a Song of God.
God is nearer to You than Your "own"
breath, than Your "own" body, even than Your "own" thoughts and
feelings. Since the Divine Presence is utmost subtle, though
being an omnipresent Power, the ignorant limited human mind can
not be aware of It or grasp It. Not even the most developed
human intelligence can understand the unlimited Wisdom and Power
Still it is possible to come nearer to
God and feel the Divine Presence, if one really wants. Gurudev
Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati used to tell us, "If You
take one step towards God - God takes thousand steps towards
So many Mystics have experienced God in
daily life. Some of them were intellectuals, some of them
illiterate, some were artists, some were simple workers.
With God You have everything. All
Riches, unlimited Wealth, all Wisdom, all Powers, an unfailing
Divine Love and Sweetness, unlimited Creative Possibilities, an
Independence and real Freedom and an unending Peace, that You
gain with the Divine Presence. No matter, what You are, a
professor, or a business man, a housewife, student or artist, -
try to make Your life a Song of God.
You can approach and feel God through
Your daily works and prayers and also through Your field of
specialization. Use every second in life to contact God.
You can speak to the Divine as if the
Divine is Your closest Friend, tell the Divine all things that
are a burden for You and bothering You. Be sure You will get an
answer and a solution.
If You want to make Your life a Song of
God, try to make Yourself "empty". Instead of your limited
thoughts, feelings, desires, allow the Divine to take charge of
You. Request the Divine to dwell in You, in Your heart, in Your
mind, in Your intelligence, and prompt in You Divine actions,
thoughts and feelings.
Karmayoga, selfless work, and constant
Prayers are of immense help, for making us purer and purer and
allowing God to be with us and dwell in us.
There is nothing more wonderful and more
blessed in life, than to consciously experience God's wondrous
If you feel the Divine, then there is no
more any space for any sorrow, any doubt or any want. With God
You have everything in abundance.
Paramahamsa Omkarananda Saraswati, the
great Mystic, God-realized Sage, Philosopher and Writer, says:
"Evolve and expand in Consciousness, by growth in Love and
Goodness, or by growth in Knowledge and Wisdom, or by the
pursuit of Beauty and Truth, or by service of Humanity, or by
any of the hundred other time-tried ways. Then God will be, for
you, a matter of living Experience and the Source of your
imperishable Life, Joy, Peace, Perfection."
If You feel the presence of the Divine
you are protected and happy, wherever You are. You will never
know loneliness. In the contrary, You will cherish moments of
outer solitude, because You can use them for becoming even more
intensively aware of God's Presence.
To feel God's loving Presence is so
overwhelming, that in comparison to It the love of even the most
affectionate mother in the whole world would seem small and
That does not mean, that one should not
love one's physical mother, father, etc., but one should be more
concerned with the Divine Presence in them and not look upon
them as mere parents.
It is the greatest Blessing in life to
have a God-realized Person as a Guru. Such a Guru can rapidly
make You aware of God's Presence and make You experience the
Immortal, while You are still living in this perishable body.
Swami Omkarananda says: "Everywhere
there is nothing other than God. He is within us, around us,
above us, below us, everywhere. Everything is God. Know and
experience this! Look upon everyone and everything with an
overwhelming conviction; this is God in manifestation!"
consider it as the greatest Luck in my life, that I could meet
in person my beloved Sadgurudev Paramahamsa Omkarananda
Saraswati. I pray, that He may make my Life a constant Song and
Dance of God.
