WHEN ONE LETS ONESELF BE ONE OF GOD’S OWN, ONE AUTOMATICALLY ACQUIRES QUALITIES SUCH AS DISCRIMINATION AND UNINTERESTEDNESS..
A woman once said to shri Maharaj, “ I am convinced that one cannot attain God unless one acquires five qualities, viz., discrimination, in-interestedness, awareness, total surrender, and steadfastness of the mind.” On hearing this Shri Maharaj said, “I did not understand your words. If a girl of marriageable age wishes that she should have parents-in-law, brothers-and sisters-in-law, can she enter into these relationships by herself, independently? These relationships come into being automatically when she marries the bridegroom. There is no need to do anything else. Likewise, all these five qualities can be acquired automatically by belonging to God and maintaining a ceaseless awareness of Him. Why feel dejected when such a simple remedy is available?”
