One day I was having a really difficult time. It had something to do with some other disciples. When I was driving Guru somewhere, I told him about the problem. Guru just pointed to my dashboard, which had his New Year's Message taped on it:
Don't expect, don't expect.
Just give, give and give
If you want to really survive.
Sri Chinmoy 1
That was Guru's answer to my problems that day.
