Spirituality is the challenge to be alive. You will find the meaning of life only by practicing spirituality. Everyone has a share of the Divine. Work to find your share. As the road gets narrow, it is more difficult to find. A genuine spiritual path is practical. It is a school of meaning, not a school of literature or language. Every day is the day of graduation. Graduate from the last day into a new day. It is a great honor to say, “I am on the path of submission.” Then nothing can stop you. You are greater than any obstacle. Don’t convey beliefs about your religion. Convey universal truth about what we should be and do. It is through experience, guidance and the light of God that you understand the Divine Message. Words alone do not carry the meaning. Wise men and women don’t focus on circumstances, but on the way through them. They distinguish between circumstances and destiny.
