* No one has got any external enemy, all our enemies are within us. It is man, who
creates his own enemies. When a man is not at peace with himself, hell is created
within him, which creates havoc all round him. By conquering the self, he conquers
the whole world. God is present every whereand is in all creatures, and it is He Who
motivates persons to act in a particular manner. Only He can lead us to think right
and do right things. Creatures on their own act unethically, invariably against
themselves, in pursuit of their selfish motives unwisely and wildly. Man unknowingly
acts against himself.
