The present, added on to some period of time-becomes future. The present plus time is the future. So our present work plus the time in which we do and achieve things together becomes the future world. The future is not a continuity of the present world - it can never be. The present world is being handled, dandled, destroyed and created through this given period of time, and what remains will be the future world - good or bad, created or destroyed.

DIVINE LIFE FOR JUNIORS - 11-20.
11. Be Ever Busy :
Be ever as busy as a bee. Keep the mind occupied in some useful work. Keep the company
of good friends. An idle brain is the devil’s workshop. Do not join idle company. Stick to a daily
routine. Develop the power of observation. You will have a wonderful memory and willpower.
12. Time :
Time is valuable. It is more precious than money. Money can be earned again if lost, but if
time is lost it cannot be regained. A moment once gone cannot be called back. Life is but a
collection of small moments. You will become a great person if you utilise your time in a useful
13. Conduct :
Think deeply. Decide correctly. Act carefully. Speak truthfully. Move tactfully. Work
diligently. Talk gently. Behave properly. Do not twist words and topics. Avoid cunningness and
14. Charity :
Give, give, give. This is the secret of abundance. Give willingly to charity. Share what you with others. This will purify your heart and lead to the vision of God. You will earn undying name and fame.
15. Health :
Go to bed early and get up early. You will be healthy and strong. Eat only those things that are good for your health. Do not overeat. Exercise daily. Let nature heal you. All diseases begin in the mind. Be always cheerful. Good health is the best of all possessions.
16. Be an Ideal Child :
Be simple. Be humble. Be gentle. Be honest. Be sincere. Be bold. Be cheerful. A positive attitude always brings success in any task. A negative approach brings failure. Shine like a saint.
17. Self-analysis :
Just before retiring to bed, think of the mistakes you committed during the course of the day. Ask God for forgiveness. Benjamin Franklin kept a daily diary and correction register. You can do the same. You will remove all your weaknesses and shine like a star.
18. Study :
Together with your lessons you must study daily the Gita, the Bible, the Koran, the Upanishads and other holy scriptures. Put into practice what you have learnt. You will progress in your spiritual life and shine gloriously.
19. The Divine Name :
The power of the Divine Name is marvellous. Repeat His Name at all times, even while you study, play and work, while you eat and rest. Choose any Name, like Sri Ram, Om Namah Sivaya, Jesus, Allah, and repeat it always. The Lord’s Name is the source of all inspiration and strength. Cling to it. It is the best medicine for any disease.
20. Service :
Serve the poor and the sick. Serve the needy. Serve those in sorrow and distress. Serve birds
and animals. Serve with kindness, love and sympathy. Service is worship of God. In serving others
you serve God. This is the highest religion.
