2. Remember God always and get ananda

Life is a long pilgrimage along the rough and torturous road of this world. But, with the Name of God on his lips, the pilgrim will know no thirst; with the Form of God in his heart, he will feel no exhaustion. The company of the holy will inspire him to travel in hope and faith. The assurance that God is ever near will lend strength to his limbs. Remember that with every step, you are nearing God; and God too, takes ten steps towards you when you take one step towards Him. This journey does not have any halts; it is one continuous journey, through tears and smiles, through birth and death. When the road ends, and the Goal is attained, the pilgrim finds that he has travelled only from himself to himself, that the God he sought was all the while in him, around him, with him, and beside him! He himself was always Divine.

To have the vision of God, one should become the master, for the Master alone can have access to the treasure-chest. You have to master the senses and all other faculties. One should not be the servant of the senses, and of the whims and fancies of the emotions and passions. The servant has access only to the cheap and perishable junk of the house-hold. The treasure-chest of life, therefore, cannot be viewed by eyes blinded or befogged by egoism, greed and envy. Therefore, engage yourselves in sadhana (spiritual practice), without any delay. Cultivate virtues, free yourself from evil habits, thoughts, words and deeds. Grow in love and greet Nature with Love. This is the way to Joy, Ananda.
