A. Ask yourself: What is the responsibility of a microphone? It relays sound and music. There is no ego involved. Similarly, when the “I” goes and you realize you are only an instrument, you are free from all the responsibilities of life. All your burdens are removed. God’s will is to subdue the ego. Our ego is dependent on the spirit, we are never independent in that respect. Once we consciously submit ourselves completely to the spirit, we are independent because God’s will takes over. The choice is yours to make: Be a very responsible person and pay the price—or surrender yourself into His hands and allow Him to do everything. Then the supreme consciousness, or the cosmic energy, flows through you. The responsibility in your life is simple. Choose your path. — Satish Daryanani
