God is all-powerful and can melt even stony hearts, yet He will not undertake to do so. Human beings have the strength to correct their path by adhering to the goals of life (Purusharthas — dharma, artha, kama, moksha), and so God will expect that you should first set right your thoughts by your own efforts and then seek God’s help. Your life must be just like the village woman who carries a pot filled with water on her head. She would be talking and joking along with other women as she walks along. Yet would take great care of the pot of water on her head. Similarly, while we live in the normal world taking things lightly as they come, we will have to take great care of the spiritual aspects as well without forgetting or ignoring them. Whatever work and task you may undertake, if you have your attention on Divinity, then God will take care of you always. (Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 7)
