When knowledge is lodged in you as wisdom, it will never leave you. Wisdom lodges itself in your heart.
Make the Divine your Valentine, your sweet Beloved. This is the last thing to do and the last thing to do.
Keep your heart in a safe place; it is too delicate. Events and small things make strong impressions on it. You cannot find a better place than the Divine to keep your heart safe and your mind sane. When you keep your heart in the Divine, moving time and events will not be able to touch it; they will not create a scar.
A precious stone needs a gold or silver setting around it to hold it. Wisdom and knowledge are the setting around the heart that will hold it in the Divine.
Make the Divine your Valentine. Just be and know that you are loved. That is Beloved.

Make your home God’s home and there will be light, love and abundance.
Make your body God’s abode and there will be peace and bliss.
Feel your mind is a toy of God and you will watch and enjoy all its games.
See this world as a play and as a display of God Himself and you will repose in the non-dual Self.
Blessings come to you in many forms.
If you are generous, blessing comes to you as abundance.
If you are hard-working, blessing comes to you as happiness.
If you are lazy, blessing comes to you as hard work.
If you are pleasure-loving, blessing comes to you as dispassion.
If you are dispassionate, blessing comes to you as knowledge of the Self.

Time and space are infinite. Grains of sand are countless. Atoms in the universe are innumerable as are the stars and the galaxies. The same is with life on this planet.
There is neither a beginning nor an end because everything is spherical. A sphere has no beginning and no end, no goal or direction.
Truth has no direction, no goal. Truth itself is the goal, and truth is infinite.
Feeling and experiencing infinity within this finite body, living timelessness within the time span of life, uncovering bliss within misery – this is what you are here for.
When wisdom dawns, it gives rise to celebration. But in celebration you may lose your focus or awareness. The ancient rishis knew this, so to maintain awareness amidst the gaiety of celebration, they brought sacredness and puja to every event.
