Thought for the day

こんにちの人は、我欲と自分勝手さのために、神の御力を理解することができません。ハートに所狭しと覆われた不純物を取り除いて、はじめて神を体験することができるでしょう。人間と神は、鉄と磁石のようなものです。人間に内在する神性のために、神はまさにその磁力で人を惹きつけます。しばしば人間は神に見捨てられたと感じ、自分自身の欠点を棚に上げて神を非難します。鉄が厚い錆や埃に覆われているとき、鉄は磁石に引きつけられるでしょうか?

ババ

Man today fails to recognise the power of the Divine because of his selfishness and self-centredness. Only when he gets rid of the impurities encrusted in his heart, will he be able to experience Divinity. Man and God are like the iron filing and the magnet. God by His very nature attracts man to Himself, for in man there is the Divine. Often we feel that God has forsaken us and we rush to blame Him, failing to realise our own defects. When the iron filing is too thickly covered by rust and dust, can it get attracted to the magnet?
