You Are Not Part Of That World

“Do not be misled by what you see around you, or be influenced by what you see. You live in a world which is a playground of illusion, full of false paths, false values and false ideals. But you are not part of that world.”

-Sai Baba

Ah, who is that, exactly?  I had never heard of him either.

An 19th century sage respected and followed by both Hindus and Muslims, his truth endures and his lessons are really for everyone, it seems.

His teachings concentrate on a moral code of love, forgiveness, helping others, charity, contentment, inner peace, and devotion to God,” explains one summary of the man.

Who can argue with this approach to life?  Transcend and live deeply as we are meant to live.

The foundation?  Love, forgiveness, charity, peace, God.  That sums it up pretty nicely.

The rest is just noise.  Temporary, superficial, experiential.

You are not meant to live only in that world.  Look within.  Look beyond.  Live deeply in God.

Amen.
