Believe in the existence of God, and never feel He does not exist. I tell you, my child, God is. Therefore hold fast to Him in sincere devotion and humility, and pray and pray! No more speculations, no more waste of time, no more idleness. Begin now, this very day, and move forward.
(p.135, Eternal Companion, Swami Brahmananda’s words on 27 Feb, 1913 at Varanasi.)
