Many times I give up on things, even after I put in my best effort. After it is out of my mind, out of the blue, it suddenly falls into my lap. I honestly did not seek peace and spiritual life, write spiritual thoughts, or try to spread the teachings. I went on this path because I fell in love with my spiritual Masters and enjoyed being around them. I asked questions and their answers inspired me. All the austerities were done only to show that they were not wasting their time. Everything started coming to me because I did not want them—even my wanting God was just to enjoy the longing. When we go after things, they run away from us. All that is due to us will come to us. It is delayed, only because we are not ready for it. — Satish Daryanani
