Small Spiritual Snippet

Only he who has succeeded in merging his own will in the Will of God has a right to say, "I am being irresistibly driven to do all this; I am the machinery and He is the Operator."That can be done only by a devotee of the highest type, who knows nothing else but God. He never takes a false step even unwittingly; no wicked deed can ever be done by him; his heart remains filled with irrespressible strength and inspiration and is never assailed by despair or depression; and he is moved neither by happiness nor misery. He always has the feeling of "Not I, not I, but Thou, but Thou, my Lord." Gain and loss, victory and defeat, honour anddishonour, have all become the same to him.
