Then you will approach God with a firmer step and a clearer mind

At the time of birth, one has no good or bad qualities. Changes occur in your nature due to the food consumed, the influence of associates etc. One develops ego and attachment through the company one keeps. As you get educated, you develop pride and entertain vainglorious thoughts about your superiority over others. This conceit pollutes the heart. When water gets mixed with milk, milk has to be boiled to make it pure. Likewise one has to undertake various spiritual practices (Sadhana) to purge the heart of impurities. It is only when the heart is melted in the heat of Divine love that you succeed in removing bad qualities. Be clear that you alone are the cause of your fortune, good or bad. God has no share in causing your suffering and you are free to shape your future. Then you will approach God with a firmer step and a clearer mind. – Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
