There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.

*********************

Make an effort to prepare your projects or assignments early, and avoid procrastination.

*********************

Q:  What is the solution to an ego clash?

Guruji :

When egos are there, they do clash. There is no way out. When there is wisdom, you will rise above any small-minded attitude, bickering and judgements.

You judge people all the time, and if you turn back and look at your own judgements, I tell you, 80 to 90% of the time, they will be wrong. Sometimes people send some messages and before the other person gets it, they retract it. How many of you have done that? You type a message to send to someone, and something tells you that this is not okay and so you retract it. How many of you do this? This shows how poor your judgements are.

We create a huge cloud around what is not even close to truth, and it has happened to you so many times in the past. You hold grudges against people, you have concepts about people and you get yourself trapped into it. You must wake up from this. You know, if your time is good, your worst enemy behaves like a friend, and if your times are bad, your closest friend behaves like an enemy. So, your luck or time is totally responsible for your friends and enemies. Your karma is responsible for what you go through. So, you should take your mind away from judging others and bring it to yourself.

Often people who complain that others have a big ego, have a big ego themselves. Often those who complain others are rude, you will see somewhere inside, they are rude. You should reflect on yourself. See, you can’t correct others but others give you a chance to correct yourself.

If you are going around thinking about somebody feeling hateful, angry, revengeful and all that, it is your strong craving for something, or aversion to something which is making you do this. You better get on to doing some seva. I tell you, it will definitely help you.

*********************

The sweetest time of the day is when you pray. Because you are talking to the one who loves you the most.

How To Maintain Intimacy

12219592_894712883945895_348737041701097641_n

Q:  Dear Gurudev, recent scientific discoveries in India and elsewhere have shown that what we thought was myth are actual historical occurrences, like the discovery of Dwaraka, the ancient city under the sea. How can we decipher mythology and symbolism from factual history in these sacred texts?

Gurudev:

Yes.

You know, the ancient style of writing history was very poetic, and it was all in couplets. None of the history of ancient time was written in prose form. They were all in poetries. In poetry, you need rhythm, so to keep the rhythm there is exaggeration, and there is beautification – all these things happen. Poetry is not poetry if it is flat. There needs to be a little elevation in it. But because of the exaggeration you cannot discard it as myth, because there is also fact in it.

Ayurveda is also written in poetry form. No medicine anywhere in the world is taught in the form of poetry except in Ayurveda. In the world, this is the only medicinal system which is all in poems so that you can remember them by heart. Poetry is easy to remember. In those days, there were not many books, so people made it all into poetry. Even the healthy things, the healthy habits were all in poetry.

If one bears this in mind, then there is no difficulty in identifying the real facts of history. Today, we have what is called Astrophysics. In Astrophysics, they really find out the exact dates of historical events. And this is being done today. There are softwares available for that.

***********************

Mistakes have caused pain, that is good. Pain has given you depth, that is good. You have learnt from your mistakes and don’t want to repeat them again, that is also good. Now, it is useless to sit and worry about the past mistakes. Just move on!

***********************

Sometimes, I just sit back & realize how blessed I am. God is great. I have amazing people in my life. I shouldn’t complain. Praise Him. Amen.

***********************

How To Maintain Intimacy

Intimacy often gets broken because of ego or your desire. What breaks intimacy?

  1. Ego or taking a position
  2. Desire
  3. Taking intimacy for granted
  4. Finding imperfection in oneself or others
  5. Expectations
  6. Insensitivity or over sensitivity
  7. Lack of vivek or vairagya (lack of discretion or dispassion)
  8. Judgements
  9. Grumbling or lack of gratitude

Dissolving into infinity is the way to maintain intimacy. Intimacy is dissolving into infinity. Dissolving into infinity brings you to the moment. Go beyond events. Dissolve into infinity, be in the moment, and look beyond the events. This is the way to maintain intimacy.

A Friend is an Enemy and an Enemy is a Friend

12227045_894712947279222_1148333134327680339_n

Q. Guruji, what is the meaning of Om Namah Shivaya?

+Guruji: Om Namah Shivaya is one who lives in all the five elements.

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

All that we need to do and achieve in our life is: purity in our heart, clarity in our mind and skill or dexterity in our actions

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

A Friend is an Enemy and an Enemy is a Friend

In the company of your friends, you lose your centeredness. Your enemy puts you back in yourself. Your friend sympathizes with you and makes you believe in matter. Your enemy makes you feel helpless and takes you to the spirit. So your enemy is your friend and your friend is your enemy!

Krishna said to Arjuna: One who is unfriendly everywhere (including himself); his consciousness is stable and awareness is established.

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

Hold on to the faith that only good will happen to you. ‘Only good things can happen to me. If something unpleasant is happening to me, it is because nature wants to make me strong’. Have this faith in you. 

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

Why we love, why we cheat

Helen Fisher explains social importance of love.

“Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.
Name them -Work, Family, Health, Friends, Spirit.

You Are keeping all of them in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls –
Family, Health, Friends and Spirit – are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for it.”

 

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

Q. Nature is giving us everything but why is it so furious against everything in this world. Why natural calamities, earthquakes, floods?

+Guruji: Natural calamities occur because it is part of its nature. Secondly we have not been utilizing nature properly. We have been too greedy. We put dynamites on earth and blast it every day. One day the earth will shake; the earth is a living organism.

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

Spiritual knowledge is that which gives you the strength for the future, ‘Nothing to worry, only the best can happen to me because my heart is clean, and my mind is clear’.

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

Q: My love for people is not allowing me to compete in the Corporate World.

Guruji: See love is not an emotion; it is just your state of being. So you don’t have to be wiggly, wiggly, goody, goody in order to be in love. You can be very straight-forward, strict, to-the-point and gentle and caring. So you don’t have to worry that this is not there in the corporate field. Suppose, you are a corporate person, someone treats you like a machine. Would you like it? No! After all you are a human being and you would like to be treated like a human being, right? So we think, ‘Since I am in corporate, I must treat everybody like machine”. No, no. At the same time competitiveness is also good. Let it be there.

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

Never mind all the mistakes you did in the past. Whatever mistakes you have done, you have learnt some lessons from them. There is no point in regretting this moment for the last moment which is already gone. Resolve right now, ‘This moment I am innocent, I am pure, I am part of the light, I am love’, and think what you can do in the next moment.

Never take love for granted

12238163_894713523945831_2410573233197215858_o

Relax. Even when you are capable and strong, you must know that there is a power that takes care of you. It is so compassionate, it is with you and will always help you. If we just understand this, the insecurity and fear in the mind goes away. Great relaxation, confidence and trust come.

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

Q: How do we keep God and the world together?

Guruji: They are already one. Where is the question of combining them? In the nature of form, it is world, and same is God in its formless nature. You don’t have to do anything to bring them together.

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

I tell you, love is the most powerful thing on the planet. Do not let anybody, any situation, any cause, any reason destroy that.

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

Beautiful story…..A very poor man lived with his wife. ~ O Henry!

One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.
The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.

The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.

He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.

He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut.

She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes, not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

MORAL: To love is nothing, to be loved is something but to love and to be loved by the one you love, that is EVERYTHING. Never take love for granted.

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

Q: Is revenge justified?

Guruji: Revenge is a sign of foolishness and stupidity. Any revenge shows you have lost your vision, that you have become blind.

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

Your consciousness is like corn. With the heat of Knowledge, consciousness pops ups and becomes white and fluffy.

Meditation is letting go of anger

12247786_894713707279146_1001248485932422649_o

Q: Why are people today becoming spiritual and political also?

Guruji: If people are becoming more spiritual, then that is a good thing. When there are so many problems happening in the society today, then the good and spiritual people have to step in and take up political roles also. Both are needed.

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

Meditation is letting go of anger from the past and all the planning for the future. Meditation is accepting this moment and living every moment totally with depth. Just this understanding, and a few days of continuous practice of meditation can change the quality of our life.

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

Q: Even after meeting you why do people continue to behave rudely and in a jealous manner? What is the reason?

Guruji: I would advise you not to worry about others.

Just imagine if they wouldn’t have been on the path, how rude they would have been. I take them, accept them and give them enough time to improve. People do change with time. People improve.

You should not get stuck in watching and observing other. You watch yourself. Just quietly reflect and observe how much have you changed after coming on to the path. You see your own progress.

Some people are slow learners, some are quick learners. This happens in life.

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

Can all spiritual organization get together and start a political party? I am sure this party can change the face of politics, and the plight of people in the country.

Guruji: Spiritual organizations are there to give solace to people of all political parties. Spiritual organizations cannot attach itself to one political party. They have to be neutral. Like the supreme court is for everyone. The court of justice is for everyone. Similarly, the entertainment industry is for everybody. It cannot belong to a party.

Spiritual organizations is where people go when they burn out, when they have problems. They come for advice, they come for solace, they come for rejuvenation. That is needed for all political parties.

Like in the games, an umpire is neutral, he is for everybody. Spiritual organizations have their own code of conduct, their own laws. They need to be neutral. They need to advice. Of course we will also advice people to go and vote 100 percent.
I have been advising all the people not to vote for the criminal and corrupt elements. This much we have to do. We have to point out. The trend in this country is so bad. There are very few bad elements but they have a vote bank for themselves. There is a corrupt man and he has bought a set of people around him and he buys votes and so he has a vote bank. So every political party gives them a ticket and makes them run for elections. For this trend to reverse, the people, who are apathetic, who just sit at home and don’t go to vote should become more proactive. And this is what we have been doing. It is changing now.

Do You Know I Have No Mercy?

12243088_894713693945814_4360139011201039706_n

Mercy indicates lack of intimacy. Indicates a distance; a lack of belongingness. You don’t have mercy on your near and dear ones. You don’t hear parents say, “l have mercy on my children.” You have mercy on those who you think are not yours. Mercy indicates anger, judgment and authority. When you ask for mercy, you are self- centered. You want to be excused from the law of cause and effect. It also indicates lack of courage and valor.

At times mercy is an impediment to growth. Mercy, of course, brings some comfort and relief; but can impair the process of transformation. If the leaves were to ask for mercy from falling, they would not be transformed.

If someone is driving and is tired, they will stop at the rest area. But if they start living there, they will be arrested. Then the spot has not served its purpose.

Patti and Victoria, high on bliss, did not stop at the stop sign and the police mercilessly gave them a ticket (in India-memo). Do you know what? Victoria said, “Thank you.” But the police woman told her to go to court and ask for mercy!

When you know and trust the process of creation, you will simply rejoice. It is the small mind which superimposes its nature on the Divine mind. Only when you made a mistake and you think God is angry and judging you do you ever ask for mercy. The Divine is all knowing and all loving; there is no chance for mercy.

Do you know I have no mercy? When there is intimacy there is no place for mercy.

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

A sign of success is confidence. Even if you lose everything, if you have confidence, then you can recreate everything again, and that is success.

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

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

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

Q: In a world that is changing so fast you still seem to be the same, unchanged and so beautiful and so adorable. How is that Guruji?

Guruji: Some questions are to be wondered about, so this too is not a question but something you need to wonder about.

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

Love is offered to you as a child but when you grow up, somewhere you lose it, and then you try to catch it. You have to climb up to get it. Climb up from the smaller things. That is where real love is. So, when you climb up, get over all the cravings and aversions, and when you catch it, nature rejoices.

Is it okay to mix different yoga techniques? Or should we find one way

12246979_894713927279124_793953364589641456_n

Q: Guruji, is it okay to mix different yoga techniques? Or should we find one way.

Guruji : No, don’t mix them, it becomes a hotch-potch. You have on your platter, such a wonderful program. All based on a single line of thought, a philosophy which is ancient yet profound, and still modern. So just follow one way. That’s the best.

I’m saying this after many years, otherwise I usually say, do whatever you like. Do you know why? I have got many people coming to me after going here and there and making a big mess of their mind. So now I have started putting my foot down and so I am telling you, don’t do it.

Several people went here and there, and were told to do this japa or that technique, and later on they were uncontrollably shivering. These people had problems and had to go to the hospital. Several such cases have happened over the past few years.

People had to be given higher medication. And some of them had become so difficult to heal.

Why do you want to do other different techniques, what is the point? You have something very good on your platter. But if you’re not at all getting benefited, you tell me that this is not helping you at all. Then I will show you where to go, which would help you.

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

If you are hurting anybody, you are hurting God. If you love God, then you should not hurt anybody

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

“No one notices your tears, no one notices your sadness, no one notices your pains, but they all notices your mistakes.”

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

“Laughing is the best medicine, unless you’re laughing for no reason then you need medicine.”
