... "See the ant. How small is the ant, yet how big a load she carries. You should not be dejected or disheartened. If we want; we can blow the whole of this mountain if we all want; if we have Will. Don't lose your hearts in this small Work. When you lose your heart, when you lose courage - this is death. Don't lose courage. You can move the mountain.
"Yoga is to be courageous. To get dejected or to lose courage is not yoga. You must understand what Bhole Baba says. We have to be prepared for anything, at any time. We must train ourselves for every kind of work." ...

"You must all have a firm determination. Even if total destruction comes or any great calamity comes, you must not be shaken from your determination. If there is a great flood, if fire breaks out - in any calamity - you must be so brave and determined that you would jump into fire or water. You must inspire others also to become brave and courageous. Only he who has courage is a true living being. One who has no courage is like a dead man, even though he lives. We have tightened our belts and taken a firm determination to do good to the world and uplift humanity. You must stick to this resolve with your full energy.
"Calamities will fall not just on one country but on the whole universe; the whole universe is in danger. The terrible times which are approaching will engulf the whole world; the whole universe will be enveloped in this destruction. We must consider not only ourselves but also the whole of the universe. We can achieve anything in this world when we are hard working and industrious.
