Let us recall Bhagavan's own sentences, edited from Gems From Bhagavan by Mudalier:
1. God will bear all burdens put on Him.
2. All things are carried on by the omnipotence of a Supreme God.
3. Instead of submitting ourselves to Him, why should we be always thinking, We should do this or that?
4 Knowing the train carries all the load,. why should we, travelling therein, suffer by carrying our small bundle on our head instead of leaving it on the train and being happy?
5. All that is necessary is to surrender yourself completely to the Guru, to surrender your notion of "I" and "Mine". If these are surrendered, what remains is the reality.
6. There are two ways of achieving surrender.
7. One way is looking into the source of the "I" and merging into that source.
8. The other way is to feel "I am helpless myself."
9. God alone is all powerful, and except throwing myself completely on Him, there is no other means of safety for me.
10. Gradually develop the conviction that God alone exists and the ego does not count.
11. Both methods lead to the same goal.
12. Complete surrender is another name for jnana or liberation.
13. What is bhakti? To turn inwards and think of God.
14. That means only one thought prevails to the exclusion of all other thoughts.
15. That thought is of God, which is the Self, or it is the self surrendered unto God.
16. When He has taken you up, nothing else will assail you.
17. The absence of thought is bhakti. It is also mukti (liberation).
18. Bhakti is the mother of jnana.
19. God's will for the prescribed course of events is a good solution for the vexed question of free will.
20. If the mind is worried over what befalls us or what has been committed or omitted by us it is wise to give up the sense of responsibility and fee will by regarding ourselves as the ordained instruments of the All-Wise and the All-Powerful to do and suffer as He pleases.
21. Then He bears all the burdens and gives us peace.
22. Well, what is destiny?
23. There is no destiny. Surrender, and all will be well.
24. Throw all responsibility on God and do not bear the burden yourself. What can destiny do to you then?
25. Complete surrender is impossible.
26. Partial surrender is certainly possible for all.
27. In course of time that will lead to complete surrender.
28. Partial surrender - can it undo destiny?
29. Oh yes it can.
30. Is not destiny due to past karma?
31. If one is surrendered to God, God will look to it.
32. That being God's dispensation, how does God undo it?
33. All are in Him only.
34. Surrender to Him and abide by His Will whether He appears or disappears; await His pleasure.
35. If you ask Him to do as you like, it is not surrender but command to God.
36. You cannot have Him obey you and yet think you have surrendered.
37. He knows what is best, and when and how to do it.
38. His is the burden.
39. You have no longer any cares.
40. All your cares are His. Such is surrender. This is bhakti.
41. All the activities that the body is to go through are determined when it first comes into existence.
42. It does not rest with you to accept or reject them.
43. The only freedom you have is to turn your mind inward and renounce activities there.
44. Nobody can say why that freedom alone and no other freedom is left to men.
45. That is the Divine scheme.
46. By giving up activities is meant giving up attachment to activities or fruits thereof, giving up the notion ''I am the doer".
47. The activities for going through which this body has come will have to be gone through.
48. There is no question of giving up such activities, whatever one mayor may not like.
49. If one remains fixed in the Self, the activities will still go on, and their success will not be affected.
50. One should not have the idea that one is the doer.
51. The activities will still go on.
52. That force, by whatever name you call it, which brought the body into existence will see to it that the activities which this body is meant to go through are brought about.
53. Completely surrender to the Lord. Realize ones helplessness and say all the time "Not I but Thou, Oh Lord", and give up all sense of I and mine.
54. No one can be out of sight of the Supreme Presence. Since you identify one body with Bhagavan and another body with yourself, you find two separate entities and speak of going away from me. Wherever you may be, you cannot leave me.
In addition, here are a few quotations from Paul Brunton's Conscious Immortality, Chapter 17:
Q. If one holds such Self in remembrance, will one's actions always be right?
A. They ought to be. However, such a person is not concerned with the right or wrong of actions. His actions are God's and therefore right.
You may remain where you are and go on with work. What is the undercurrent which vivifies the mind, enables it to do all this work? Why, the Self! So, that is the real source of your activity. Simply become aware of it during your work and do not forget it. Contemplate in the background of your mind even whilst working.
To do that, DO NOT HURRY. Take your own time; keep the remembrance or real nature alive even whilst working, and avoid haste, which causes you to forget. Be deliberate.
Practise meditation to still the mind and cause it to become aware of its true relationship to the Self, which supports it. Do not imagine it is you who are doing the work. Think that it is the underlying current which is doing it. Identify yourself with this current. If you work unhurriedly, recollectedly, your work or service need not be a hindrance.
Individual human beings have to suffer their karmas for His purpose. God manipulates the fruits of karma. He does not add or take away from it. The subconsciousness of man is a warehouse of good and bad karma. Iswara chooses from this warehouse what He sees will best suit the spiritual evolution at the time of each man, whether pleasant or painful. Thus there is nothing arbitrary.
