Om shanti. Look around you and realize the call of this time. The mantra for the present time is, “Do whatever you have to do right now”. Make your spiritual progress a priority. If you do this, you will feel God’s presence with you. If you think you are going to do it in the future, God steps back. Think you will do it now, and God will make it happen.
This is the time to remove from your heart anything that will prevent you from having a close relationship with God. Liking and disliking affect the heart. Perhaps you have thought in the past that it was important for you to have opinions on most things, but now we know that this is not true. When we have likes and dislikes inside of us, the heart is not clean. Keep your heart clean, merciful, big, honest and generous and you will experience God to be as close as your next breath.
