Hopes For The Divine !

Do not have any hopes for anything wordly, have only hopes for the divine. it is the Divine alone that brings happiness to the soul. We should feel a sort disgust at everything sensual. That is the first sign of our real dispassion for the things of the world. And without this dispassion for sense objects and their enjoyment, gross and subtle, no spiritual life, no higher endeavor, becomes possible. Dispassion should become our dominant trait if we want to achieve success in spiritual life.
~swami Yatiswarananda (senior monk of Ramakrishna order)
