I loved listening to the stories narrated by my spiritual Masters. Behind every story they told, there was a moral for us to learn. They were not ordinary stories. A field, if cultivated, yields fruits and vegetables, and if not cared for, will be overrun with thorns and weeds. All the fields get sunshine and water, and that is like the effort we put in. Our minds are like the fields. Grace is like water and sun, it flows to everyone. We put in the effort to refrain from things, and we decide what kind of thoughts we will have. The act of cultivating is our freedom. Stories and their morals are heard by many. How many make them the anchors of their lives? — Satish Daryanani
