Thought for the day

現代の人間は、どうして恐怖と心配に痛ましいほど苦しんでいるのでしょうか?私たちは外部にその理由を求めているでしょうか?それともそれは自らの内部にあるでしょうか?その理由は、精神的なものを無視して、誤って物質的な世界に重点を置いたところにあります。肉体は、神が居住し、礼拝されるべき寺院です。本来、それは神への旅路を歩み始めるための道具です。

ババ

Why is man so pathetically afflicted today with fear and anxiety? Are we to search for the reasons outside us or do they live within us? The reason lies in the false emphasis we have laid on things of the material world, ignoring the things of the spirit. The body is a temple where God should be installed and worshipped. It is essentially an instrument for undertaking the journey to God.

- Baba
