GRACE IS ALWAYS THERE
Grace is an indefinable quality or an indefinable quantity which can only be approximated or inferred to by the intellect. Grace is a factor that is beyond the human conception of the mind. It is a factor that can’t be analysed, but it can be experienced.
In order to improve the quality of life, we very consciously make an effort to live a better life, and spiritual practices do give us the strength for right thought and right action. When right thought and right action are combined, the quality of life improves, and as the quality of life improves, we become more receptive to what we call the law of Grace. We have to create the field, the magnetic field, to draw upon that Grace.
The way to live the relative life to its fullest value would be to infuse the spiritual quality within us in every action, in every form of relativity.
The underlying factor has to be moral and ethical. And, once we introduce morality and ethics in all our actions, then the law of Grace comes running to us. We don’t need to go and chase Grace – Grace chases us! She’s a nice girl. We do not hanker after Grace, but we have it in our minds.
Grace is always there. If we improve the relative self, we draw upon the law of Grace, and the law of Grace permeates every thought, word and deed; but we have to allow it to permeate. When that happens, then everything becomes joyful.
