This is a quote by Brahmananda Saraswati, Guru Dev, I came across recently. I have always appreciated His no-nonsense yet endlessly compassionate expression:
“Nobody wants your mind in this world, and the mind is not satisfied with anything of the world. The mind is not fit for the world, or the world for the mind. When the mind realizes God, it is permanently established there and does not desire other things. From this we can understand that God alone is fit for the mind and nothing else.” – Swami Brahmananda Saraswati
He says find the Divine in everything, realize your highest potential. He is not advocating a retreat from life or being endlessly preoccupied with rituals, rather a complete embracing of all Creation, at its most sublime. Recognizing our source.
