Thought for the day -26th August 2004

利己主義はいばらの森です。人のこころに種が植えられ、成長したときには罪の芽を刈り取らねばなりません。利己主義は最愛の友人でさえ敵に回します。それは有能な人の共同作業を許さず、多くのよい原因や計画を駄目にします。苦難は影のようにつきまといます。喜び、安らぎ、勇気、協調そして愛は、エゴのないところで花開きます。人を突き動かす神性意識が一切に等しく浸透していることに気づくとき、愛はエゴを後に追いやり、人の行為、言葉、思考の主導者となります。

Egoism is a thorny bush, which when planted and fostered in one's heart, makes one pay the penalty. Egoism makes enemies of even dearest friends; it ruins many good causes and projects, for it does not allow two competent men to work together. Grief follows it like a shadow. Joy, peace, courage, co-operation and love flourish in the absence of the ego. When man is aware that the same Divine consciousness that motivates him is equally motivating all others, then love ousts the ego to the background and takes charge of man's actions, words and thoughts.
