Do we need the help of God for inner self happiness?

Q: Do we need the help of God for inner self happiness?

A: Yes. We always need the sanction of God for success in any endeavor for he is the supreme controller.

The perfection of inner happiness is to establish a loving relationship with God who is situated within, who pervades everything, and who resides in his original spiritual form in the spiritual world.

Q: There are also certain very famous and successful people in the world who do not believe such things; what can be inferred about them?

A: Material fame and success do not help one attain God. But for one who is already God conscious, they can be used in God's service.

It is difficult to advance in transcendental realization, for persons who believe only in things they can perceive with their gross senses.
