Yesterday I was in the garden. We had to uproot the weeds that had gathered around the small marigold plants. There were so many weeds that at times it was hard to find the marigolds.
Today I was at home, cleaning the clutter which gathers so easily in so many corners and from so many places. There was so much stuff that I couldn’t think straight. When I have a headache, my husband tells me to clean. He knows me well! Cleaning always makes me feel better.

The idea that we should not try to see God but act in such a way that he feels pleased to look our way is one of the main philosophical contributions of Srila Prabhupada’s guru, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur. He always made it clear that we are not the seers (that we cannot see God) but that we are the seen (that we can be seen by God).

To realize one's utter insignificance is a critical milestone in life. It opens up significant opportunities for us to connect to something truly grand and important. This realization can come at any stage of our life, and come multiple times, each time helping us realize the majesty of something else that is truely magnificent.
The typical society encourages one to believe and imagine that we are very special and significant. That's what the self centred small mind wants to believe.…Continue
