Path of ego: service to itself
Path of God: service to man
Path of ego: seperates selfishly
Path of God: unites – is Oneness
Path of ego: moments of “happiness”
Path of God: permanent happiness
Excerpt from the book “Morning Talks” by Sant Kirpal Singh
Love is innate in our soul and it has to be attached to somebody. Unfortunately, it has been attached to the material world outside. So the result is, we come again and again to the world. Where our love is, there we have to go. We love the God-in-man, where God is manifest because He opens our inner eye to see the God-into-Expression Power. For that, we have to sacrifice everything. Now we can judge where we stand. The highest aim in the manbody, is as I told you, to know God, to reach God, to go back to our Father’s Home. We will go where we are attached. We have been coming again and again to the world, because we are attached to the world. You are fortunate in having the man-body, which is the highest rung in Creation. If we develop love in us for God, through the grace of the God-in-man, then we will go to the Home of our Father. It is for this purpose that we have to develop love for the God-in-man. The teacher of man is a man. He talks from our level, develops love in us, gives a contact within us, opens the inner eye to see the Light of God, and to hear the music of all spheres. Remain in any religion you like. The main purpose is to go back to the Home of our Father and, while on earth, we should also have peace of life. We can only have peace of life if we develop love for all, for the God in them. Why? Because we are all brothers and sisters in God. We are conscious entities, drops of the Ocean of all Consciousness. So by love, if it is directed to the right source, we get some peace here and in the hereafter. This is what is meant by, “May Thy Kingdom come on earth”. So, whom should we love? We should love God. How can we love God? By loving the God-in-man, who gives us a contact with God. The love of God-in-man is the love of God. He is overflowing with the love and intoxication of God. He is not bound to the earth but is sent here to guide the child humanity and go back to His Home. If you love Him, where will you go? You will go where He goes. If He is not to return to the world, why should you return, how can you return! So these two things are very essential.

My friend Kamal has inspired me to write some lines of a happy soul.
Please, check out her great blog-site, full of wisdom and spiritual richness.
Indeed we are soul, love and light – however, our mind stands often between our inner happiness and covers it with its own permanent changing colour.
Here is what I have added to her lovely post:
A happy soul is who has seen with inner eyes the everlasting happiness in Him…
A happy soul is who is detached from all worldly affairs, who is in this world but not from this world
A happy soul is who lives Oneness
A happy soul is who combines Self-realisation with God realisation
A happy soul is who has reached emptiness from oneself, to enter One Self
Radiation of love may reach all hearts
