Why is it important to believe that we are one with God?
The timeless soul which is beyond delusion and darkness has to be cognised by every person through his/her own efforts. You have taken birth as inheritors of this estate of Eternal Bliss. You are the dearly loved children of the Lord. You are as pure and as sacred as air. Do not condemn yourselves as sinners. You are lion cubs, not sheep. You are wavelets of Immortality, not bodies compounded from matter. Material objects are there to serve you and do your bidding. You should not serve them and do their bidding.
