By the grace of the Lord, you are under his care. Always think of him-think of him in any way you like. Cry, cry like a child. Whatever you want you will get: love, faith, devotion, purity, everything. He assumed a body because he wanted to give people love, faith, and knowledge. He is the incarnation of the age. Believe this and pray to him. Pray for faith and devotion. This will give you peace and hope. ..Remember him always and love him. These are things closest to your heart. Once you surrender to Sri Ramakrishna you are safe. He will protect you. Be sure of this.
