Success Is Ours When We Allow God To Work Through Us.
We Serve Through Maintaining Spiritual Practice Over
A Long Period Of Time
The Spiritual Strength We Gain Through This Sets Us
Apart From Others And Makes Us Examples That
Others Can Follow
I Believe Spiritual Power Is Fundamentally Linked To
The Level Of One’s Consciousness.
The Lower The Level Of Consciousness , The Less We
Have The Ability To Upload Consistency Between The
Abstract And The Concrete.
The Higher The Level Of Consciousness , The Higher The
Level Of Awareness , And The Higher The Ability To
Work With Unity.
CARING AND SHARING
If You Don’t Love , If You Don’t Experience Love In It’s
Totality , You Cannot Become Fulfilled Because
Absolute Fulfillment Is Love
If You Don’t Experience Caring And Sharing , You
Cannot Become Complete Because Caring And Sharing
Are Wholeness By Definition
If You Are Only Interested In ‘ My ‘ Thing , e.g. ‘ My ‘
Salvation , ‘ My ‘ Enlightenment , You Will Never Be
Enlightened Because Individual Enlightenment Is
Always Connected To All Others
In The Personality Of Brahma Baba , Our University’s
Founder , We Saw So Much Inner Radiance . In The
Awareness Of Being An Instrument Of God He Paid
Special Attention To Himself And Had Deep Regard For
The One Who Had Made Him An Instrument
That Regard Enabled Him To Be An Instrument . His
Personality Was Filled With Honesty , Humility And
I , Too , Should Have Those Same Qualities. It Is These
Qualities That Create The Sparkle Of Inner Radiance.
