Princess Diana’s death

We are all God’s creations. It is so easy for us to blame God when something tragic happens, such as the untimely death of Princess Diana. As human beings, it is natural for us to feel that life gives us joy and death gives us pain. We have formed our own conception of God as Someone who is all Affection, all Love, all Compassion for us. But when God plays certain other roles in His cosmic Game, we do not understand.

God is not Someone who can be understood. He can only be realised. When we establish our conscious oneness with Him, on the strength of countless years of our sleepless and breathless aspiration, we see that each action of His has a sublime meaning and serves a very special purpose.

Princess Diana left the world when she was at the summit of her glory. She died with her heart’s beauty and fragrance intact, before the world had the opportunity to capture her ruthlessly in its mind-jungle. She gave us her heart-garden, which was so beautiful and so inspiring. That is why she will always be remembered as the unparalleled Queen of the universal heart.
