The following is from the first chapter of Beyond Words.
Peace and joy is our goal. Whatever we do, we are doing it for that. Not everyone believes in a God. But the real God, the cosmic God who is being searched for by one and all, is that peace and joy. Everyone wants that. Even the so-called nonbeliever or atheist, who would ignore the church or even burn down a temple, is after some peace and joy. He just feels that his actions will bring him that satisfaction.
If anybody asks me, "What is your philosophy or God?" I say, "Peace is my God." If the ask me, "Where is He?" I reply, "He is in me and He is everywhere. He is all peaceful; he is all serenity. he is to be felt and experienced within oneself."
When you disturb your peace, your are denying the God within you. Money, drugs, position, whatever it may be--anything that promises peace from outside will go one day. Nothing from outside can give you peace because peace is there within you, always.
There is a certain kind of deer from which we get musk fragrance. But that deer is always searching for the source of the fragrance. It doesn't realize that it comes from him; it is in him. Like that deer, we run here and there searching for that peace which is always within us....
Even if God Himself came and disturbed my peace, I would say, "Get away, I don't want You. I care more for my peace than for You." That is the way you must protect your goal. Don't allow anything to interfere with reaching that goal.
