ObedienceIf we obey God out of fear, then God will shed bitter tears. If we obey God out of love, but with an ulterior motive, then God will shed bitter tears. But if we obey God because that is what we have known how to do from time immemorial, then God will offer us His Eternity's Smile. Not out of fear but out of oneness we have to obey our Inner Pilot.
Sri Chinmoy, Silver thought-waves, part 1, Agni Press, 1992
