Accept what is acceptable but do not reject what is not acceptable
- Dr. Dinshah K. Mehta
The SSG teaches that all of creation, including Satan and the hell-bound souls, must return to the Source from which they emerged. In order to complete the journey back to the Source, we have to live a life that is based upon the principles that have emanated from the Source. If we do not, we will end up going down another blind lane of life that will not lead us back to the Source but keep us trapped within the wheel of Karma.
God has a plan for every aspect of creation and for each individual soul. Therefore, in order to live a life in keeping with the Source, as mentioned above, the SSG teaches that one should not make plans for one’s life according to one’s own ideas and desires or the ideas of others whether they are parents and/or other well-wishers.
Instead one should “Fit into the Divine Plan that God has for each one of us.” Dr. Mehta often said, “Plan not but fit into the Plan Divine.” In order to fit into the Divine Plan, one has to transition from the way of life in which one is, into the Divine Plan for one’s soul. To do that, one has to live according to definite principles that have been revealed by God through various spiritual Masters.
These principles and new ones have been codified through Dr. Dinshah K. Mehta, so that they form a comprehensive system that supports the efforts of spiritual seekers. In its most basic form, SSG teaches that those who wish to fit into the Divine Plan should follow three sets of principles, found below.

Seven Principles of God Guidance Through Force of Circumstances
The fact that the physical sun is constantly shining even when a portion of the earth has turned away from it, is a reflection of the truth that God is constantly radiating His Will to all the souls. However, since most human minds cannot hear the Voice of Silence and receive God Guidance directly, they can receive indirect Guidance from God through the circumstances He creates to bring creations back to Him. They will receive God Guidance indirectly, if they follow the principles of receiving God Guidance through Force of Circumstances.Read More
