In 2017 a
held in the divine presence at the Singapore. A devotee seeks guidance for the youth.
And here is what Swami said:
Everybody is divine. Each person is like a magnet – but, until the iron bar becomes magnetized, it is just a piece of iron that accumulates rust and dust. There are plenty of youth in Singapore rusting and full of dust. Nevertheless, they all have this magnetism and divinity within them. If you become a magnet and move around in society, you will attract them and turn them into magnets. You may be a small group but, if you stay united and move around doing service, going out to universities or colleges and organizing activities with other youth, they will look to you and start to get attracted. The divinity within them will emerge. Constant company with good people is important. Then these youth will start changing and start changing ten others, too.
Be: Be what you are trying to bring out in others;
Do: Show by example;
See: See what others are doing;
Say: Then you have the right to say.
Do things on your own. The other youth will observe you. Do it step by step, knowing that you cannot transform the youth in one day. Remain steadfast and never lose focus.
