In today’s world many a times emergence of discordant notes has silenced the call of the Divine from within. One feels that progress in this modern world is to be materially successful and attain status, position etc. This is surely needed but should be accompanied with something that gives one true happiness within. That means raising the level of moral life and brightening daily lives with goodness and godliness. Life must be an incessant process of repair and reconstruction, of discarding evil and developing goodness. Paddy grains must discard the husk to become consumable rice. Cotton must be reformed as yarn to become wearable cloth. Even gold nuggets have to undergo the crucible and get rid of alloys. Similarly we must purify our instincts, impulses, passions, emotions and desires. Then we can progress in good thoughts, deeds and words. We may have to undergo many trials and tribulations to stand by noble values but finally we will shine forth and be an inspiration for others to follow. Our intrinsic value is directly proportional to the level of inner transformation we achieve. Let us start working towards our transformation and spread this to others so that the world becomes a truly wonderful place to live.
