4. Remember the Spirit Supreme

​

Exercise: While you are showering, walking, waiting on the phone, watching TV commercials, doing the dishes, and getting into bed, remember the Spirit Supreme. Imagine — every person can imagine — a Being whose light is so brilliant that if we could pluck a hair from its body, the light of a hundred billion suns and moons would pale before the brilliance of that hair. Imagine a Force whose power and intensity is so great that the entire physical universe is only the merest merest expression of Its Creative Will. Imagine an OverLife that is of the purest unalloyed bliss and peace, an existence far far beyond the confines of mind and time that is eternity. Imagine the Lord of the Soul whose Love is so all-complete and forgiving that words and ideas fail utterly in description. Imagine this Love in contact with you, always, wanting only one thing of you: to remember the Spirit Supreme.

34. Don’t criticize, accept

​

When you criticize, you ostracize.

​

It is in effect an attack that drives the person from the field of love, when the very sustenance they likely need is your love. So, do not criticize. Do not criticize. If a friend asks for your opinion, or if you see that a friend is being duped, offer what you think lovingly.

​

If we really knew what each person has gone through, we could only love that person. Each person is doing his or her best and is operating under the full weight of his or her baggage. In infancy and growing up, we do not know what each person suffered. Even in our own families. We do not know how people and their environment influenced him or her. Finally, unless we’re a Saint with clear inner sight, we don’t know with what script the person entered this current life. The script has been derived from the good and bad deeds of countless actions and reactions from previous lives and the personal drama unfolds just so that she or he may pay off this lifetime’s allotment of good and bad debts.

​

Activity: Each time you realize you’re about to let loose and criticize someone, catch yourself. If you’re at work and you need to correct something the person’s done, accept that the person is probably doing his or her best and give directions to the person sweetly, humbly. Endeavor to be a good example. If you’re at home and it’s a family member who is not measuring up to your standards, really strive to accept the person as perfect. Be loving. Be an example. Realize that he or she may not be cut out to excel in academics, or sports, or money management, or whatever it is that’s been displeasing you. Acceptance and love are the great healers that will help the person you think is at fault to find him or herself and ultimately shine.

​

Always remember, to criticize is to find fault with God’s creation. Who are we to question a soul’s unfoldment? This does not mean we should accept ill treatment, nor remain silent in the face of evil actions, but we should remember what the Master Nanak Sahib says, “Not a leaf stirs, outside His will.” Ultimately, when your spirituality has matured, whatever happens to you will be as if God is giving you diamonds. You will treasure it all. You’ll be paying off your bad and good debts, becoming purer, lighter, and growing into the God Current. The Will will all be precious, sweet.
