Why do you worry without cause?
Whom do you fear without reason?
Who can kill you?
The soul is neither born, nor does it die.
Whatever happened, happened for the good;
whatever is happening, is happening for the good;
whatever will happen,will also happen for the good only.
You need not have any regrets for the past.
You need not worry for the future.
The present is happening…
What did you lose that you cry about?
What did you bring with you, which you think you have lost?
What did you produce, which you think got destroyed?
You did not bring anything – whatever you have, you received from here.
Whatever you have given, you have given only here.
Whatever you took, you took from God.
Whatever you gave, you gave to him.
You came empty handed, you will leave empty handed.
What is yours today,
belonged to someone else yesterday,
and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow.
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours.
It is this false happiness that is the cause of your sorrows.
