To be in the company of those whose minds and hearts are turned towards the Truth is to be in the company of holiness. Don’t hold on to any image of what freedom should be like or how your life will change. Throw all these things overboard. Just present yourself at the feet of God with a big Yes inside your heart.

Say, ‘Yes. I’m helpless without you. Rid me of ego and merge me in you. I’m here only for this. I don’t know any way or path. You are my refuge.’

Come to the shrine like this—- empty.
