Your life should not be a wasteful round of eating, drinking and sleeping; you have the Atma (soul) as your reality and so learn to become aware of that unfailing source of bliss. By properly using your intelligence, you can tap that spring and be supremely blissful. Happiness can be won only by proceeding towards God, not by following the urges of the senses. Of the twenty four hours that are available to you each day, let Me advise you to devote a small fraction to meditation or prayers or reading scriptures or listening to discourses on the divine sport (leelas) of the Lord. Think of God, and the gratitude you owe to Him for the human life He has gifted you and the various material, moral and intellectual talents He has endowed you with before you commence any task. You will certainly experience great benefit, and you will have peace, joy and success in your endeavours through Divine Grace.
