God Is Not A Fool
Question: How can we develop service as an instinctive, natural habit in our lives?
Sri Gurudev: By knowing that you are always serving. You don’t need to develop anything. Simply know that you are not doing anything other than serving.
God sent you, and He must have had a purpose for sending you. He is not a fool. He will use you to fulfill His purpose. When He is not using you, you should not think, “Oh, I am no use at all. I am just sitting and doing nothing.” That means that you forgot who is in charge. Your attitude should be, “Maybe God is just not using me now.”
We are all tools in the hands of God. He brought us here to be used and He is literally using every one of us. It is God’s energy that is in us. God is using me to say these things, and God is using you to listen. In a way, God is speaking and God is listening. It’s not that I am in any way a great master, literate and enlightened, and you are all fools. No. It is simply that on this dramatic stage God is having me sit here and say something, and He is having you sit there listening. I know that it s God making me sit here and making you sit there. If you don’t know it, that is the problem.
