His Masterly Voice

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth

and love has always won.  There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall – think of it, always.

 I own that I have an immovable faith in God and His goodness, and an inconsumable passion for truth and love. But, is that not what every person has latent in him?

 Work without faith is like an attempt to reach the bottom of a bottomless pit. I can easily put up with the denial of the world, but any denial by me of my God is unthinkable.

 I may be a despicable person, but when Truth speaks through me I am invincible.

 Often in my progress I have had faint glimpses of the Absolute Truth, God; and daily the conviction is growing upon me that He alone is real and all else is unreal.

 I can see that in the midst of darkness light persists.

Hence I gather that God is Life, Truth, Light. He is Love. He is the Supreme good.

 I call God long-suffering and patient precisely because He permits evil in the world. I know that He has no evil in Him and yet if there is evil, He is the author of it and yet untouched by it.

The purer I try to become, the nearer to God I feel myself to be. How much more should I be near to Him when my faith is not a mere apology, as it is today, but has become as immovable as the Himalayas and as white and bright as the snows on their peaks.

As food is necessary for the body, prayer is necessary for the soul. Prayer is an impossibility without a living faith in the presence of God within. God demands nothing less than complete self-surrender as the price for the only real freedom that is worth having.

 I am giving you a bit of my experience and that of my companions when I say that he who has experienced the magic of prayer may do without food for days together but not for a single moment without prayer. For without prayer there is no inward peace.

 For me the Voice of God, the Conscience, of Truth, or the Inner Voice or ” the Still Small Voice” mean one and the same thing.

 The rays of the sun are many through refraction. But they have the same source. I cannot, therefore, detach myself from the wickedest soul… nor may I be denied identity with the most virtuous.
