Compassion, forgiveness, and giving, without looking for anything in return. . . this is the way of the Wise, this is the sign of an evolved soul.

There is no better place to practice egolessness than at home. This is why the Creator gave us families, so that we could practice compassion, forgiveness and giving, without looking for anything in return. When we do this, we are doing solid spiritual work; we are discovering what we are really made of. And what is that? That is Divine Love.

Compassion, forgiveness, and giving do NOT come from the mind or ego. These divine qualities are manifested only when we go beyond ourselves. So long as we are wanting something for ‘little me’, that long we remain unhappy, frustrated, aggravated and annoyed.

The most important work that we do is NOT our professional work, it is NOT our ‘body’ work (such as going to the gym), it is NOT our housework (or home improvement), it is our SOUL WORK (Homework): it is the work we do on our inner self which will take us to our Eternity. We need to improve our interactions with our family members, and we do this by practicing self-control. Each of us must control our own mind and ego: no one can do this work for us.

“Good work is its own reward.”

Dr. T. R. Khanna

There is nothing more rewarding than being in the state of egolessness. When there is no thought of small self, I, the mind is at peace. When we stop holding on to our small self, our mind becomes as big as the universe. But when we are small hearted, we feel the limitations of our little mind. Heart is the mind. One who is vast hearted is one whose mind is free of the obstructions of ego and images. To become vast hearted we have to become Wise.

Always, without fail, the one who is truly Wise will be compassionate, forgiving, and giving, without looking for anything in return. Let us make this our mantra for the day:

“Compassion, forgiveness, and giving, without looking for anything in return. . . . .

Compassion, forgiveness, and giving, without looking for anything in return. . . . .

Compassion, forgiveness, and giving, without looking for anything in return. . . “
