Steeped in Mystery is Devotion

One who is not amazed by the magnificence of this Creation, his eyes are not yet opened. Once your eyes are open, they close and this is called meditation. (Laughter)

Tell me, what in this Creation? Is not a mystery? Birth is a mystery; death is a mystery. If both birth and death are mysterious, then life is certainly a greater mystery. Isn’t it?

Being completely immersed in the mystery of Life and this Creation is Samadhi. Your knowing or believing doesn’t really matter to what Is. This Creation is an unfathomable secret, and its mysteries only deepen. Getting steeped in mystery is Devotion. The “Scene” is a mystery; the “Seer” is a mystery. Deepening the mystery of Creation is science. Deepening the mystery of the Self is spirituality. They are the two sides of the same coin. If neither Science nor Spirituality can create wonder and devotion in you, then you are in deep slumber.

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

Every cell in the body has the capacity to hold infinity. A worm too eats, sleeps and performs its daily activities. There is no point in living like that. We must tap the full potential nature has bestowed upon us, the potential to hold infinity in every cell of your body. For that, we must practice meditation regularly. It takes only a few minutes every day, and once we imbibe it in our daily routine, it is no more a burden or a chore.

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

Q. When intellect and heart say different things, whom should we follow?

+Guruji: When it comes to work follow your intellect. And follow your heart when it comes to service.

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

Q: Guruji, What is the feeling of nationality and is it contrary to the idea of universal brotherhood? How can the feeling of nationality be expanded to include universal brotherhood?

Guruji: A sense of universal brotherhood comes first and foremost. Now, though you may not be a stakeholder in the entire universe, but you are definitely a voter in your own country. And when you are a voter in your own country, you have some responsibility towards the country. You can express your needs and opinions through the local press and you can take some action.

Globally, you can spread human awareness, You can do good and also wish good for everybody out of a spirit of friendliness and compassion.

8 Qualities of Remarkable Employees

Great employees are reliable, dependable, proactive, diligent, great leaders and great followers… they possess a wide range of easily-defined—but hard to find—qualities.

A few hit the next level. Some employees are remarkable, possessing qualities that may not appear on performance appraisals but nonetheless make a major impact on performance.

Here are eight qualities of remarkable employees:

1. They ignore job descriptions. The smaller the company, the more important it is that employees can think on their feet, adapt quickly to shifting priorities, and do whatever it takes, regardless of role or position, to get things done.

When a key customer’s project is in jeopardy, remarkable employees know without being told there’s a problem and jump in without being asked—even if it’s not their job.

2. They’re eccentric… The best employees are often a little different: quirky, sometimes irreverent, even delighted to be unusual. They seem slightly odd, but in a really good way. Unusual personalities shake things up, make work more fun, and transform a plain-vanilla group into a team with flair and flavor.

People who aren’t afraid to be different naturally stretch boundaries and challenge the status quo, and they often come up with the best ideas.

3. But they know when to dial it back. An unusual personality is a lot of fun… until it isn’t. When a major challenge pops up or a situation gets stressful, the best employees stop expressing their individuality and fit seamlessly into the team.

Remarkable employees know when to play and when to be serious; when to be irreverent and when to conform; and when to challenge and when to back off. It’s a tough balance to strike, but a rare few can walk that fine line with ease.

4. They publicly praise… Praise from a boss feels good. Praise from a peer feels awesome, especially when you look up to that person.

Remarkable employees recognize the contributions of others, especially in group settings where the impact of their words is even greater.

5. And they privately complain. We all want employees to bring issues forward, but some problems are better handled in private. Great employees often get more latitude to bring up controversial subjects in a group setting because their performance allows greater freedom.

Remarkable employees come to you before or after a meeting to discuss a sensitive issue, knowing that bringing it up in a group setting could set off a firestorm.

6. They speak when others won’t. Some employees are hesitant to speak up in meetings. Some are even hesitant to speak up privately.

An employee once asked me a question about potential layoffs. After the meeting I said to him, “Why did you ask about that? You already know what’s going on.” He said, “I do, but a lot of other people don’t, and they’re afraid to ask. I thought it would help if they heard the answer from you.”

Remarkable employees have an innate feel for the issues and concerns of those around them, and step up to ask questions or raise important issues when others hesitate.

7. They like to prove others wrong. Self-motivation often springs from a desire to show that doubters are wrong. The kid without a college degree or the woman who was told she didn’t have leadership potential often possess a burning desire to prove other people wrong.

Education, intelligence, talent, and skill are important, but drive is critical. Remarkable employees are driven by something deeper and more personal than just the desire to do a good job.

8. They’re always fiddling. Some people are rarely satisfied (I mean that in a good way) and are constantly tinkering with something: Reworking a timeline, adjusting a process, tweaking a workflow.

Great employees follow processes. Remarkable employees find ways to make those processes even better, not only because they are expected to… but because they just can’t help it.

Meditation: A Key To Develop Psychic Powers

You must have heard of this term several times and might be practicing too. But, meditation is not of one type or one way. It has got several steps and forms as per the requirement. This meditation is for you, not for your almighty or anyone else. You can perform it your way, without following strict steps. However, there are some simple steps mentioned here for you for attaining the meditation level.

1] Wear light shade clothes, preferably white.

2] Clothes should be loose enough to make you feel comfortable from all parts of your body.

3] Sit in a silent room, preferably dark (if you are not scared of darkness).

4] There should be no tensions in your mind, like somebody is about to come and you have to open the door or your mom is ill and she can call you anytime. Just tell everyone at home not to disturb you because you want to spend some private time with yourself.

5] Sit in the most comfortable position on a couch, preferably cushioned stool of height at least 2 feet.

6] Close your eyes and start breathing slowly.

7] Take full breaths and concentrate on third eye.

8] Relax your body, forget all troubles and make your mind tension free.

9] Concentrate on the scenes coming to your eyes, no matter how beautiful or horrible are they, let them flow. After some time, everything will be fine and you will feel very light like a feather.

10] Now, you will find that your imagination is taking you to a wonderful ride that you had never expected. They might turn horrible, fight with them. If they are beautiful, cherish them. And, if you believe in God or worship a deity, find them and talk to them. During this time you can ask them for anything you want. They will bless you.

11] Practice this act regularly on each day; you will start feeling more sensitive to the unseen and unheard things.

Meditation is the art that is being practiced since years. It is basically a part of Yoga but sometimes require assistance of a practitioner to save you from the troubles arising from deep meditation.

गीता के अनुसार मनुष्य अपना कल्याण करने में स्वतन्त्र है -४-

शास्त्रों में कल्याण के लिए बहुत से उपाय बतलाये गए है और सज्जन पुरुष भी हमारे कल्याण की बहुत-सी बाते कहते है । उन सब पर एवं उनके सिवा भी जो आज तक आपने पढ़ा, सुना, समझा है, उस पर तथा उसके अतिरिक्त भी, ईश्वर ने आपको जो बुद्धि, विवेक और ज्ञान दिया है, उसका आश्रय लेकर पक्षपात रहित हो आपको गम्भीरतापूर्वक विचार करना चाहिये । इस प्रकार गम्भीर विचार करने पर आपकी बुद्धि में संशय और भ्रम से रहित जो कल्याणकर भाव और आचरण प्रतीत हो, उसको सिद्धान्त मानकर तत्परतापूर्वक कटीबद्ध हो उसका सेवन करना और उसके विपरीत भाव और आचरण का कभी सेवन न करना-यही अपने द्वारा अपना उद्धार करना है । इसी प्रकार जो भाव और आचरण हमे विचार करने पर लाभप्रद प्रतीत हो, उसका सेवन न करना अपना अध:पतन करना है ।

संसार में जितने भी हिन्दू, मुसलमान, इसाई, पारसी, यहूदी, सिखआदि मत और सिद्धान्त माने जाते है, उन सबसे आदरपूर्वक निरपेक्ष होकर पक्षपात रहित हो समभाव से विवेकपूर्वक गंभीरता से अपनी बुद्धि के द्वारा निर्णय करते हुए विचार करना चाहिये की परम कल्याणदायक भाव और आचरण कौन-से है । एवं इनके लिए जो-जो बाते अपने मन में आये, उन पर सोच विचार करके निर्णय की हुई बातों की हमे दो श्रेणी बना लेनी चाहिये-(१) कल्याणकरक अच्छी बाते और (२) पतनकारक बुरी बातें ।

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

The role of meditation and other spiritual practices is to withdraw the mind from the sense objects and take it back to its source. This is critical for success in life. The knowledge of coming back to the Self, the self-referral value of consciousness makes it rich, energetic and beautiful.

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

The past is destiny, the future is free will, and the present moment is so beautiful. If you see things this way, then you are very wise. But if you think the other way around – that the past was free will, the future is destiny and the present is miserable, it is not a wise thing to do. It shows a lack of wisdom. Then life becomes miserable.

A BOWL OF NOODLES FROM A STRANGER

A Great Moral story

A BOWL OF NOODLES FROM A STRANGER

That night, Sue quarreled with her mother, then stormed out of the house. While in route, she remembered that she did not have any money in her pocket, she did not even have enough coins to make a phone call home.

At the same time, she went through a noodle shop, picking up sweet fragrance, she suddenly felt very hungry. She wished for a bowl of noodles, but she had no money!

The seller saw her standing  before the counter and asked:

– Hey little girl, you want to eat a bowl?

– But … but I do not carry money … she shyly replied.

– Okay, I’ll treat you – the seller said – come in, I will cook you a bowl.

A few minutes later the owner brought her a steaming bowl of noodles. Ate some pieces, Sue cried.

– What is it? – He asked.

– Nothing. I am just touched by your kindness! – Sue said as she wiped her tears.

– Even a stranger on the street gives me a bowl of noodles, and my mother, after a quarrel, chased me out of the house. She is cruel!!

The seller sighed:

– Girl, why did you think so? Think again. I only gave you a bowl of noodles and you felt that way. Your mother had raised you since you were little, why were you not grateful and disobeyed your mom?

Sue was really surprised after hearing that.

“Why did I not think of that? A bowl of noodles from a stranger made me feel indebted, and my mother has raised me since I was little and I have never felt so, even a little.”

On the way home, Sue thought in her head what she would say to her mother when she arrives home: “Mom, I’m sorry. I know it is my fault, please forgive me … ”

Once up the steps, Sue saw her mother worried and tired of looking for her everywhere. Upon seeing Sue, her mother gently said: “Sue, come inside honey. You are probably very hungry? I cooked rice and prepared the meal already, come eat while it is still hot …”

Could not control any longer, Sue cried in her mom’s hands.

In life, we sometimes easy to appreciate the small actions of some people around us, but for the relatives, especially parents, we see their sacrifices as a matter of natural …

Parental love and concern are the most precious gifts we have been given since birth.

Parents do not expect us to pay back for nurturing us …… but have we ever appreciated or treasure the unconditional sacrifice of our parents?

सभी सुखी हों, सभी नीरोग हों, सभी का हित हो

सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामयाः |
सर्वे भद्राणि पश्यन्तु मा कश्चिद् दुःखभाग्भवेत् ||

सबके हित में जिसकी प्रीति हो गयी है, उन्हें भगवान् प्राप्त हो जाते हैं- ‘ते प्राप्नुवन्ति मामेव सर्वभूतहिते रताः’ (गीता १२ | ४) | कारण कि भगवान् प्राणिमात्र के परम सुहृद हैं (गीता ५ | २९) | वे प्राणिमात्र का पालन-पोषण करनेवाले हैं | आस्तिक-से-आस्तिक हो अथवा नास्तिक-से-नास्तिक, दोनों के लिए भगवान् का विधान बराबर है | एक व्यक्ति बड़ा आस्तिक है, भगवान् को बहुत मानता है और उन्हें पाने के लिए साधन-भजन करता है और एक व्यक्ति ऐसा नास्तिक है कि संसार से भगवान् का खाता उठा देना चाहता है | भगवान् को मानने से और भगवान् के कारण ही दुनिया दुःख पा रही है, भगवान् नाम की कोई चीज है ही नहीं-ऐसा उसके हृदय में भाव है और ऐसा ही प्रचार करता है | ऐसे नास्तिक-से-नास्तिक व्यक्ति की भी प्यास जल मिटाता है और यही जल आस्तिक-से-आस्तिक व्यक्ति की भी प्यास मिटाता है | जल में यह भेद नहीं है कि वह आस्तिक की प्यास ठीक तरह से शान्त करे और नास्तिक की प्यास शान्त न करे | वह समान रीति से सबकी प्यास मिटाता है | ऐसे ही सूर्य समान रीति से सबको प्रकाश देता है, हवा समान रीति से सबको श्वास लेने देती है, पृथ्वी समान रीति से सबको रहनेका स्थान देती है | इस प्रकार भगवान् की रची हुयी प्रत्येक वस्तु सबको समान रीति से मिलती है |

…….यदि समता लानी हो तो दूसरा व्यक्ति किसी भी वर्ण, आश्रम, धर्म, सम्प्रदाय, मत आदि का क्यों न हो, उसे सुख देना है, उसका दुःख दूर करना है और उसका वास्तविक हित करना है | उनमें यह भेद हो सकता है कि आप राम-राम कहते हैं, हम कृष्ण-कृष्ण कहेंगें; आप वैष्णव हैं, हम शैव हैं; आप मुसलमान हैं, हम हिन्दू हैं, इत्यादि | परन्तु इससे कोई बाधा नहीं आती | बाधा तब आती है, जब यह भाव रहता है कि वे हमारी पार्टी के नहीं हैं, इसलिए उनको चाहे दुःख होता रहे पर हमें और हमारी पार्टीवालों को सुख हो जाय | यह भाव महान पतन करनेवाला है | इसलिए कभी किसी वर्ण आदि के मनुष्यों को कष्ट हो तो उनके हित की चिन्ता समान रीति से होनी चाहिए और उन्हें सुख हो तो उससे प्रसन्नता समान रीति से होनी चाहिए |…..इस प्रकार किसी भी वर्ण, आश्रम, धर्म, सम्प्रदाय आदि को लेकर पक्षपात नहीं होना चाहिए | सभी के प्रति समान रीति से हित का बर्ताव होना चाहिए | यदि कोई निम्नवर्ग है और उसे हम ऊँचा उठाना चाहते हों तो उस वर्ग के लोगों के भावों और आचरणों को शुद्ध और श्रेष्ठ बनाना चाहिए; उनके पास वस्तुओं की कमी हो तो उसकी पूर्ति करनी चाहिए; उनकी सहायता करनी चाहिए; परन्तु उन्हें उकसाकर उनके हृदयों में दूसरे वर्ग के प्रति ईर्ष्या और द्वेष के भाव भर देना अत्यंत ही अहितकर, घातक है तथा लोक-परलोक में पतन करनेवाला है | कारण कि ईर्ष्या, द्वेष, अभिमान मनुष्य का महान पतन करनेवाले हैं |…उत्थान तो सद्भावों, सद्गुणों, सदाचारों से ही होता है |

भोजन, वस्त्र, मकान आदि निर्वाह की वस्तुओं की जिनके पास कमी है, उन्हें ये वस्तुएं विशेषता से देनी चाहिए, चाहे वे किसी भी वर्ण, आश्रम, धर्म, सम्प्रदाय आदि के क्यों न हों | सबका जीवन-यापन सुखपूर्वक होना चाहिए | सभी सुखी हों, सभी नीरोग हों, सभी का हित हो, कभी किसी को किंचिन्मात्र भी दुःख न हो -ऐसा भाव रखते हुए यथायोग्य बर्ताव करना ही समता है, जो सम्पूर्ण मनुष्यों के लिए हितकर है |
