For removing various complexities of the heart, Lalaji Saheb asked the satsanghis to make friends of their enemies and the persons whom they dreaded, and directed them not to do to others which they themselves did not wish to be done by. He considered love to be the greatest tapas[penance].

You see what you want to see. You get what you want to get. You become what you want to become. Sahaj Marg is nothing more than a great tradition offered by a great line of Gurus – offered to you to become what you should become, not what you want to become.

Echo of the Abhyasis
If I search me in myself, I do not find him. But there is something in its place. What is that? The echo of the abhyasis who remember me, thinking me as their own. What is this condition? Only my Master can say. I am aware neither of myself nor of God. If I think it deeply I only find Master and Master and nothing else. Now the echo of the seeker resounds in the Master alone, who in return gives out what is essential for approach, but the seeker should preserve it and grow in it. Heart is heart if it is diverted to God. Soul is soul if it jumps into the Ultimate Reality.

The mind is our enemy, but the mind is also the only instrument through which we can gain this victory and make sure that human birth makes use of this very valuable opportunity on earth to achieve the goal of human birth, which is to gain liberation from it.

Usage of Time
As Babuji said, "If you want to evolve from here to There, it can be done in one second of time." Time is of no consequence. It is how we use it that matters.

If we consider ourselves great, we put up a wall to that greatness where we have to arrive. We create a bondage, so to say, that becomes an obstruction on the path. What's the harm? When we assume greatness, we start considering others as low (insignificant). Now that path which we have to trudge also gets closed, and we are wholly lost, to all intents and purposes. We blow our own trumpet in our own thoughts, and lose a lot in the process.

He [man] must also cultivate habits which will be conducive to his efforts for shattering the network. For instance, the ears should attend only to noble talks; the eyes should see only that which is pious and good; the heart should be inclined only towards that which is virtuous.

God Is Not a Judge
Religious philosophies or systems make it necessary for some sort of a divinely dispensing deity who is sitting there dispensing judgement: you shall be punished, you shall be rewarded. Now, according to Sahaj Marg, there is a very fundamental departure from that concept – that God is not a judge, God can never judge.
