A common space for harmonic peacemakers
Chapter 9, Verse 30
"Even hardened criminals,
If they turn to me with their whole hearts,
Will grow into sainthood
As they move towards me on this path."
Sri Krishna Prem:
You may miss the mark a thousand times and by those actions become so enmeshed in the snares of Maya that it is nearly certain that you will miss the mark again the next time around. It is nearly, but not quite certain, for in everyone shines the Self, and where That shines unobstructedly in your heart no bondage can be found.
Always it is within your capacity to turn and journey towards the Light after stumbling, for the divine freedom that lives in your heart can never be annulled, and even the very power by which you err, traced to Source, springs from the Stainless.
No one is so depraved as to be outside the pale of divine mercy. Such are the potency and mystery of divine workings that sometimes even the most evil of people have become transformed into saints.
Vicious people, convicting themselves by their own consciences, may judge their souls to be lost forever, but Krishna gives assurance that they too may recover their long-forgotten spiritual heritage. No mistake is unforgivable and no evil insuperable, for the world of relativity contains no absolutes.
Undivided devotion will help you discern the will of God and act in harmony with it.
