A Quote by Swami Sai Premananda on love, authenticity, life, god, and perfection

Many people ask, “Should I do this or should I do that?” I say, “Why are you wasting your time? Love God and perfect yourself. That is the fastest way to God.” It is the most perfect path to God. Become a principled human being. Become an authentic human being. When you say that you are going to do something, do it. Don’t say you will do something and then not do it. That’s not what a principled human being is like. Thought, word and deed must come together. These are actually the holy trinity within the human being: thought, word and deed. When thought, word and deed are in alignment at a very high level, then you are living a principled life. You are living an authentic life. This takes you to living a divine life.
