Words of Sai
The Lord is sugar. You may drop it into tea or coffee or milk or water. Into whatever thing you put it, it will make it sweet. Sweetness is His nature, sweetness is his signature. If you melt the sugar, there is neither water nor sugar, but a third thing called sugar syrup, which also gives sweetness. If your tongue is bitter through hatred, envy and pride, you cannot feel any sweetness. Get rid of the illness and you can enjoy the sweetness that God really is!
