Daily Thoughts and Prayers

 

November 19th

 

 

Salient Thought for the Day

 

      Self-consciousness is a very great obstacle in the path of trust and surrender.

Lines to Memorize   

      

      Who art Thou that walkest before me and behind me

      And in the hour of sleep standest in watch beside me?

      Wilt Thou not unveil Thy face whose love hath already made me captive?

 

Lesson

      

      What does self-consciousness imply? It means that we are primarily conscious of our outer surroundings, our outer setting. People, things, incidents, objects, are of minor importance. We should not give them first place. What is the most important thing for workers to be conscious of? The task they are going to perform. What is the most important thing for students to be conscious of? Their study. If they are conscious of anything else, no matter what it is, it is an impediment to their success. Self-consciousness is always a drawback in life.

Prayer

 

      All-merciful One, grant me strength to cast off all self-love and self-will.

      Help me to rise above all alien thoughts.

      May I learn through Your grace to overcome all selfish impulses.

      May I lose myself in unceasing devotion to You.

      May I seek You at all times with ardor of spirit.
