THOUGHT FOR THE DAY 
OUR MOST BELOVED BHAGAWAN’S DIVINE MESSAGE 
One cannot give adult food to a baby – you 
have to adjust the food to the needs and 
the digestive abilities of the child and 
gradually let the tastes develop with age. 
So too, you cannot reach the peak, in just 
one jump! It takes persistent effort and 
gradual progress to get to the top, is it not? 
Realize that it is a very hard job to negate 
the evidence of the senses. You can and 
must overcome the tendencies that have 
grown within you from hundreds of births. 
The truth that the world is an illusion and is 
a manifestation of the Divine is clear to a 
few, who have reached their destination. If 
you are an aspirant, until that realization hits you, you must persist in your path, patiently, with 
hope and sincere effort. (Divine Discourse, Apr 12, 1959)
