HE HEARS THE VOICE OF THE HEART

Meher Baba

 
Everyone can be happy, but some feel happy and some feel miserable. Those who constantly want something will never feel happy. Misery is bound to accompany wanting. Those who never want for themselves but for others, they can feel happy. Why? Because they want others to feel happy.

God, who is in everything and everyone, is deaf to formal rituals, ceremonies and prayers in mosques, churches and temples; but He hears the voice of the heart. When you help others, God knows instantly and is pleased. No amount of prayer or meditation can do what helping others can do.
