Wishing You Well…

Hey there, I’m just sending this because I wanted to wish you…

Smiles in the face of sadness,

Rainbows to color your world,

Laughter to burst from your lips,

Sunsets to fill your heart with beauty,

Gentle huge to raise your spirit,

Friendships to warm your life,

What Are Thought Vibrations?

The word atmosphere has two meanings. One refers to the physical air around us and the other to the more subtle effect that thought vibrations create in a particular space. No one can deny that the atmosphere of a crowded restaurant is different from that of a temple. This is mainly because of the effect of different types of thoughts and feelings in that space. Even someone deaf and blind would have the ability to pick up the difference. Sound vibrations are invisible but their impact isn’t. A pneumatic drill or a jet breaking the sound barrier jolt both our minds (non-physical effect) and the walls of our houses (physical effect). Thought vibrations can’t be seen but their non-physical as well as physical impact is even more powerful and influential. The panic that people generate during a stampede or an earthquake and the euphoria (absolute joy) of victory in a World Cup final cricket game are examples of how thoughts create an atmosphere.

On a subtler level, many of us have the experience of basic telepathy – ‘ I was just thinking of you and you called’. Thoughts connect individuals over large distances. Doctors inform us that over 90% of the physical body’s illnesses have a psychosomatic (mental) origin i.e. they are a direct or indirect result of our state of mind. That makes the human body the prime example of how thoughts affect matter.

Since the world is made up of the collective, personal worlds of all individuals, then it’s easy to see how the international political, economic and social atmosphere is nothing more than the collective effects of all our thoughts.

=========================

Humility

Humility is rare because to have it you have to want nothing, yet when you have it you get everything.

=========================

Selflessness

When there is selflessness in every action, there is the ability to express the best that is within. Such a person is able to be himself, yet discovers something new and becomes better and better each day. Nothing is done just to attain something, but it becomes a natural expression. Then there is a beautiful result too.

Passion and Self-Reliance

Passion makes you weak. Dispassion is strength. For your passion to be fulfilled, you have to depend upon so many things. Passion and self-reliance do not appear to go together. If you are passionate, you have to forget about being self-reliant. If you want to be self-reliant, you have to drop your passion. This is generally so.

That which brings together these two completely different aspects in you, is your spirit. The same spirit that wants to be self-reliant is also passionate. It is only in spirituality that passion and dispassion can happen together. This is the rarest combination.

When you are dispassionate, you have strength, and strength is self-reliance. True self-reliance is realizing that nothing is excluded from the Self. And when you realize everything is part of the Self, then you can be passionate about everything! Even to fulfill your passion, you can only rely on the Self, for Self alone is non-changing.

In Truth, there is neither reliance nor passion. In one state, you can either be passionate or you can be self-reliant. But in an elevated state of consciousness, you can be neither, or both!
======================

Think It Over

Seek the council of men, who will tell you the truth about yourself, even it hurts you to hear it.

Mere commendation will not bring the improvement you need.

======================

You cannot become power in your community nor achieve enduring success in any worthy undertaking until you become good enough to blame yourself for your own mistakes and reverses.
-Napoleon Hill Author of “Law of Success”

======================

ASK NOT WHAT THIS WORLD CAN DO FOR YOU BUT, RATHER, WHAT YOU CAN DO TO THIS WORLD. MAKE SERVICE AN IMPORTANT GOAL IN YOUR LIFE. IT IS A MOST FULFILLING INVESTMENT OF TIME. REMEMBER IN THE TWILIGHT OF YOUR LIFE, WHEN ALL SAID AND DONE, THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE BOILS DOWN TO THE QUALITY OF YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO OTHERS. LEAVE A RICH LEGACY FOR THOSE AROUND YOU TO SAVOR.
– Anonymous

======================

“Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant with the weak and the wrong. Sometime in your life you will have been all of these.”
-Dr. Robert Goddard

What is the difference between Moha (attachment) and Mamtaa (a mother’s love)?

Q: What is the difference between Moha (attachment) and Mamtaa (a mother’s love)?

Guruji: See, a mother’s love is permanent, it never goes away. What is attachment? When (a mother’s) love makes us blind, then that is attachment. Suppose a mother’s son is not qualified to become the Chief Minister of a state, and the son also does not want to become the Chief Minister, but the mother forces the son to become the Chief Minister because she is unable to recognize that he is not the right person for the job, then this is attachment.

What King Dhritarashtra felt towards his son Duryodhana was attachment. On the other hand, the love of Mother Yashoda towards Lord Krishna was nothing but purely a mother’s love for her child.

Attachment gives you misery because it blinds you. When you get entangled in attachment, you overlook the person’s true capability and what they deserve. Mamtaa means having the feeling of ‘Mine’. So, your motherly love should expand and it should be for everyone else.

Lord Krishna says in the Gita, ‘Yes, I do have attachment also, but it is equal towards all beings’. Samo ‘ham sarva-bhuteshu na me dveshyo ‘sti na priyah. Ye bhajanti tu mam bhaktya mayi te teshu cha-api aham’. (9.29)

This is a very unique quality and only Lord Krishna can speak like this. A normal person can get very attached to one person. But when a person says, ‘I have that same strong attachment towards all beings’, then that is unique. So Lord Krishna presents attachment also in a positive way.

=====================

Q: Please can you teach me how to be connected to the faith?

Guruji: Trying to connect to the faith is trying to connect to the air around you. ‘I want to be connected to the air.’ My dear, you can’t be but! You are already connected. Relax. Why do you try to connect to air? Are you getting what I am saying? Doubt as much as you can. I would say, you should doubt as much as you can. A point comes when you no longer can doubt, the truth will stand up. Truth can never be destroyed by doubt.  

Truth will stand. Doubt can cover it, delay it for some time, drag on for some time, but it can never destroy the truth. Therefore, when people have doubts, I say, ‘doubt as much as you can. One day those doubts will fall off.’ If you are lucky, it will fall off immediately the way it comes. Unlucky ones hang on to it for a little longer time. That’s all. Unlucky ones will carry the garbage on their back for some long distance. Lucky ones know that they carry garbage and throw it right there. Two steps, and they drop their garbage.

The difference is attitude

As we age, let’s say past 50, we have a choice. Some are thinking, “Wow” my life is almost over, while others are thinking “Wow”—a brand new chapter is just beginning.
The difference is attitude!!

“Getting older is not something to be denied and avoided; it is something to be accepted, experienced, honored and celebrated.” ~ George Cappannelli 

Desires (you can substitute the word wants or hungers as well) issue from perception, belief, or feeling that there is absence or lack. Because desires are the offspring of emptiness, our efforts to satisfy them cannot be successful.

Dreams by comparison, are the legitimate issue of our souls seeking expression and manifestation in this journey called life. This does not refer to our night dreams, but instead to the flashes of inspiration that come to us as prompts and messages from our hearts. Dreams are the hints that, when we are brave enough to follow them, will lead us to discover new landscapes and destinations of remarkable value.

As you identify the course you want to chart going forward, you would be wise to stop going for the brass ring and the ever-elusive carrot of desire and focus instead on the authentic look and feel of your deeper dream. Your dream will open doorways to new ways of living and being and generating genuine joy, lasting satisfaction, and enduring love. Your dream will lead you to meaning and purpose, allowing you to harness your potential and fulfill your destiny.

Reflect on the following three questions:
What is one dream I still want to experience or manifest in this lifetime?

What kind of difference would expressing or manifesting this dream make in my life?

How would fulfilling this dream contribute to the lives of others?

Marianne Williamson said, “It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.” Some of us are afraid of standing out, of shining too brightly. As you explore your dreams, do not let the fear of the light be what prevents you from experiencing life.

Make the World a Safe Place

Make the World a Safe Place

Are you having Suicidal Thoughts?​

Guruji says: “Suicide is the most foolish thing a person can ever do”.

The thoughts arise because of low level of prana. 

Seeing life from a perspective of space and time will deepen your vision about your life.

The corrupt amass a lot of money, but cannot spend all of it. Then one day they die. Children might inherit the wealth maybe they fight over it. Seeing life in the context of the universe and unfathomable time can broaden your vision, your mind and enrich your heart.

Corruption can be countered by five Cs. The first is a sense of connectedness. Lack of a sense of belonging breeds corruption in society. That is why corruption is lowest at the village level. But in urban areas, it’s high because there is little or no sense of community.

The second C is courage. Lack of self-esteem or confidence in one’s own ability is one of the causes of corruption. Fear or insecurity makes one corrupt. When you try to find security only through money, it doesn’t work. Even after acquiring more money, the insecurity doesn’t disappear. In fact, you become more fearful because the money might not have been earned in the right manner. So you need to have courage and confidence in your ability and in the laws of nature.

The third C is an understanding of cosmology: looking at one’s own life in the context of extended space and time. What is the human lifespan, just 80 or 100 years? See life in the context of the huge dimension of time. Billions of years have passed since creation. And everything in this creation is recycled. The air we breathe is old, every cell in our body, every atom is old, the oxygen and hydrogen is old!

The fourth C is care and compassion, important since they bring dedication. Its lack causes corruption. The Kumbha Mela was attended by 30 million people nearly three million people each day without violent incidents, theft or robbery!

The fifth one is commitment. When a person has a goal, a commitment to a higher cause in life, it brings a shift from taking to giving. If you only think ‘What can I gain?’ rather than ‘What can I contribute?’, corruption can be rooted out. We need to shift our attitude to commit ourselves to give.

All this is not possible without individual spiritual uplift. A sense of belonging with the whole world. Today, we have globalised everything other than wisdom. And that is one of the causes of terrorism and unrest in the world today. We accept food from every part of the world, we accept music from every part of the world, but when it comes to wisdom, people seem to shy away.

If every child in the world learns a little about all cultures, about each other’s values, the whole scenario will be different. Then one will not think, ‘Only I will go to heaven. Everyone else will go to hell’. Lack of knowledge of this truth has caused so many problems.

Even if one part of the world remains ignorant of these shared values, the world will not be a safe place. It is not something we can do overnight, but it can be done through education and creating that sense of community, through inspiration and example.

Religion is like the banana skin and spirituality is the banana. Spirituality, the values, are the same in every religion. The differences are superficial. It is good to have differences. Nurture the differences but also enliven spiritual values. Then together we can make the world joyous and safe.
