There are four types of people. The ‘dead’, who deny the Lord and declare that they alone exist: independent, free, self-regulating and self-directed. The ‘sick’, who call upon the Lord when some calamity befalls them or when they feel temporarily deserted by the usual sources of succor. The ‘dull’, who know that God is an eternal companion and watchman but who only remember this off and on when the idea is potent and powerful. And lastly, the ‘healthy’, who have steady faith in the Lord and who live in His comforting, creative presence always.

“The test that will reveal the quality of your faith is whether you are practicing sincerely the injunctions laid down by God. Your beliefs and actions must be expressions of faith. They must have holiness as their core. They must be so full of love and compassion that they attract to you the grace of God.”

Swami explained that whatever plans one may draw up for the future, one should base them on faith in God. They should be righteous. One will then achieve success. When one has faith in the ways of the Lord and abides by the Will of the Lord, the Lord can be understood and experienced. When there is confidence, there is love; when there is love there is peace; where there is peace, there is truth; where there is truth, there is bliss; and where there is bliss, there is God. He said this is the way to develop faith in God.

“You may be physically far, but mentally by My side. I do not imagine distance in miles or metres, only you have to be aware of Me and make use of My presence. Why fear when I am here? Put all your faith in Me. I shall guard you and guide you.”
