There is no need to seek the Truth anywhere outside yourself. Seek it within you: you are the miracle of miracles. Whatever is not within you cannot be found anywhere outside you. What is visible outside you is but a rough reflection of what really is within you!  The ancient belief was that Easwara (God) ruled over the World, and was outside it. This, the Indian seekers put to the test through Sadhana (spiritual exercises) and revealed that God was and is in the world and of it. This is the first contribution of Indians to spirituality - that God is not external to man, but is his very inner core. They declared that it is impossible to remove Him from the heart where He has installed Himself. He is the very Atma of our Atma, the Soul of our soul. He is the inner Reality of e ach one of us!
- Sathya Sai Vahini, Chap 4, "The Miracle of Miracles"
When evil traits are banished, Divinity will manifest within you in all its glory! - Baba
