God is….


GOD IS JUST AS SOFT AS HE IS HARD —

Although I am the Formless One, I am destined (as the Avatar) to assume a human form again and again, and so I am here. But I wish for you to become free from the wheel of births and deaths, of being born again and again, growing, maturing, marrying, enjoying procreating, decaying and dying.

God is just as soft as He is hard, as compassionate as He is harsh. Just remember that when you call on Him or invoke Him, if He is touched even once, the impossible then becomes possible and you become free. This is not an easy thing. However, during the forthcoming days, try to repeat God’s Name wholeheartedly: then I and God will see to it.

These days I try not to get angry or excited. Whenever I am about to, I remember the words of Christ and say in silence. “Get thee behind me, Satan.” So, whenever you find that thoughts of lust, greed, jealousy, anger, money matters, or family matters possess your heart, say silently (as did Jesus), “Get thee behind me, Satan,” and be at peace.
