Pay in Goodness
“How to be always with you?”, a devotee asked Swami with all sincerity.
Swami said, “To get anything, we need to pay a price. Let’s take the case of your phone connection, if you want it to be always available, you need to pay the telephone company which provides the services. As long as you pay your bills, the connection remains; else it’s cut off. So it is with God, the only difference being, you need to pay in goodness to be with God. When you do good, you get God. And as long as you keep doing good, God is with you.”
Isn’t it why Sri Adi Sankara preached “Kuru Punyam Ahoratram”; do good day and night. Not the day alone but night also, so that you can be with God, day and night, always.
