Everything Is for Good

Loading...
"Sri Swami Satchidananda offers one of the main keys to peace: accepting everything that happens to us in our lives with the understanding that it is all for good. He summarizes this teaching in these four lines: "It's all God's name. It's all God's form. It's all God's deed. It's all for good." He further explains that sometimes we forget that there is a cosmic consciousness working in us, through us and keeping us alive. Even if we don't want to believe in God, we may believe in what science has proven: everything is made out of atoms.

Or, in other words, once we have seen the God within, we can see God in everybody and the good behind everything." - [...]
