  • Holding onto God — thinking of pleasure and Peace is to think of pleasure — holding on to Bhagavan must be supported by letting go of bhoga
  • Trusting in God — holding back is an expression on antitrust — any perceptive, reflective, deep mind knows the world will never be able to protect one from mrtyu-tamasa-dukha rather only Bhagavan can pilot one to Sat-Chit-Ananda
  • Seeking out God — vision pervades lifestyle — tapas is to burn comfort zones encouraging one to be vulnerable, encouraging one to be vigilant
  • Surrendering to God — a gauge of what we love is what we depend on — bhakti is exclusively, unconditionally, perpetually and most critically, comprehensively depending on Bhagavan
  • Being God — in Oneness there is no otherness — vidya dadati vinaya dadati advaita
