selfless work

Sri RamaKrishna said

"Through selfless work, love of God grows in the heart.
Then, through His grace, one realizes Him in course of time.
God can be seen. One can talk to Him as I am talking to you. "

To be a bee

Sri RamaKrishna said
"Ordinary people practice spiritual discipline and cultivate devotion to God;but they also become attached to 'woman and gold'. They are like flies, which sit on a flower or a sweetmeat and light on filth as well.
But the ever-perfect are like bees, which only light on flowers and sip the honey.The ever perfect drink only the Nectar of Divine Bliss. They are never inclined
to worldly pleasures."

"In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, and give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions, and none will be imposed. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as God gives to us." Unfortunately in our short sightedness, we forget this. 'Unselfishness is more paying, only people have not the patience to practise it,' says Swami Vivekananda.
