Salient Thought for the Day
Your action must be vibrant. Your words must be sweet

 

Lines to Memorize
He who neither rejoices, nor hates, nor sorrows, nor desires and who has renounced good and evil, he who is thus full of devotion is dear to Me. He who is the same to friend and foe and also in honor and dishonor, the same in heat and cold, pleasure and pain, free from all attachment, (he is dear to Me)

 

Lessons
Learn gentleness of speech, of step, gentleness in all your motions. Those who are in a higher state of evolution have great lightness in their touch and in their movements, in all they do. The tendency to be destructive, to overturn and to break indicates a wrong state of mind. When we move in perfect rhythm, we never destroy or hurt anything. Gentle manner and a sweet voice disarm all hatred and harshness. When we resist and assert ourselves, our action has no power other than to awaken a like spirit of resistance. Gentleness alone will overcome condemnation and anger

 

Prayer
O Lord, fill me with the spirit of love. May I never wound or injure any living thing. May self-interest never dominate my actions. Make me gentle and kindly in all my dealings with my fellow-men
