THOSE WHO THINK ILL OF US
The distinguished Sanjeeva Reddy, the president of the
All-India Congress political party (and later President
of India), was among the visitors that morning. Baba
dictated this message for Sanjeeva Reddy:
It is better to deny God than to defy God. Sometimes
our weakness is considered as strength and we take
delight in this borrowed greatness. To profess to be a
lover of God and then to be dishonest with God, with
the world and with oneself is unparalleled hypocrisy.
Difficulties give us the opportunity to prove our
greatness by overcoming them.
A child's trust in his mother is complete because he
leaves all his worries to her. She has to take care of
him. So if we trust in God and let Him worry for us, we
live contented and happy. When the leader of a nation
puts complete trust in God, God makes him the
instrument to guide the nation rightly.
We should think well of those who think ill of us.
