    Link Yourself with an Unlimited Capacity by Swami Satchidananda

    Your destiny is your own creation. It’s because you’re the master of your destiny, and you did it, that you can always undo it. When you have the capacity to do something, don’t you have the capacity to undo it? So trust in that capacity, and then go forward.

That is the light in you, or the Self in you, or the Atman. It doesn’t talk or do anything—it just is. And that is what you call “God.” It is due to our own limitations that we say, “God did this, God did that, blessed me, or punished me.” God never blesses or punishes. God just is.
