The youngsters went to the sage of the village and asked him what devotion means.
Contrary to his otherwise thoughtful way he answered this time very clearly, almost impulsively.
'Just open your eyes, look, marvel, show interest.
Nature to show it to you.
Usually we are only willing to agree as long as things go the way we want them to be.
Where is the agreement with All That Is?
Compared with the plants that must grow, where the seed falls by chance, we the people have the free choice to draw our living sphere ourselves.
Let's be thankful for that.
Our life reflects exactly what we have created.
Do we not agree, so we reject our own creation.
Resistance to maintain things.
Accept what is, only then change is at all possible.
Devotion has to do with confidence, trusting that many things will change,
as soon as we surrender ourselves to the current situation.
And always remember that you have created your living sphere yourself - even if it may not be aware to you.
In the deepest depths of our hearts we all have quite a fear of change, because we lack the confidence.
When we learn to accept things as they are, we will find that they are constantly changing for the better.
This generates increased confidence'.
Then he was silent.
