Keep Him Pleased
When people are in need of money, they try to make friendship with the rich. All that is possible is done to keep them (rich people) pleased. And when they are pleased, people become ready to serve them to such an extent that their friendship becomes intimate, fulfilling every need of theirs. If we do the same thing with God, and keep Him pleased, it is possible that His grace may descend on us, which we cannot hope for from the rich.

Love Infinite Bliss
[Lalaji in intercommunication with Babuji] "What is love? It is the shadow of the Ultimate, and the principal jewel of man. The shadow disappears when it comes under light. In worldly matters, one generally loves the pleasure of the senses. It is easy because the senses are inclined towards it. If the same thing is moulded towards That, then everything can be achieved. That is, if love is developed for that Infinite Bliss, excellent results will follow."

Gift for Master
On the basis of my personal experience, I suggest a simple process which can be followed by all quite easily. If one can sell his heart, i.e. make a gift of it to the Divine Master, hardly anything more remains to be done. This shall naturally bring him to the state of absorbency in the Infinite Reality. The adoption of this easy and simple technique makes the beginning of the process the very end of it.

Service is easier than loving. Loving is a very difficult thing; service is very easy. Put your heart and serve somebody; you automatically get his love and his obligation to you, and he has to give you whatever he has to give you. But we should never serve with the idea of getting something.

This is the message of the heart, the way of the heart. Go inside. Find the inner self. Learn to live with it. Learn to listen to the voice that you call conscience, which is coming out of it. Obey it fearlessly. Learn to give, in the true confidence that giving brings more and more for you to give, whereas keeping only sours the gift. Then we find this extraordinary miracle of any one of us perhaps becoming a saint who receives and receives unlimitedly, to go on giving, not retaining anything for himself, knowing that in that is his existence.

I believe that where there is true love, one must love the person and not what he does, or what he becomes. Nor must love change if the person changes. When I was in the Banaras Hindu University, I once approached the Vice Chancellor, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan, for an autograph. He was a world-renowned philosopher-statesman, and went on to become the President of India. He wrote in my autograph book, "Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds."
