Never take love for granted

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

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?

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

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.”

How to deal with a loved one being too possessive?

Q: How to deal with a loved one being too possessive?

Guruji : Only through wisdom.

You need to make people see life from a bigger perspective. When they see life with a wide angle lens, then their whole idea, or opinion will change. Otherwise the world seems so small, and we go around in little circles of fifteen, to twenty people. Within that small circle you will have cravings, aversions, anger, jealousy, and greed. All these negative emotions keep rattling you. This happens because you have not expanded your vision about your own life.

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

Good things come to those who wait

The answer will come when we least expect it.
Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them. Every day begin the task a new.
~ Saint Francis de Sales

I’m big on patience yet the wait’s been more than an extensive and elongated break. The best is yet to come and makes the long wait all the more worthwhile.~ Margaret Young 

My life’s about to bust wide open in a GOOD direction. I’ve patiently spent my time here in the waiting room. Good things are coming! I can feel it! Never never never give up.

~ Dana Andrews
=============================

Q: Everything in the world is natural – the good and the bad. Then why are we always trying to convert the bad into good?

Guruji : Because that is also part of our nature. People are being born, and people die, then why do you need to save anybody from dying? Close down all the hospitals, shut down all the services. Anyways people die, what is the point? How does it matter if they die a little earlier or sometimes later? Sooner the better. This type of logic doesn’t hold good.

Our nature is to help. Our nature is to bring light. Our nature is to bring comfort to others, and make everyone feel happy. We can’t be in anyway different from that.

If you ask alum, ‘Why do you clean the water?’ It will say, ‘It is in my nature’.

If you ask Sun, ‘Why do give light to people?’ It will say, ‘That is my nature’.

If you ask a star, ‘Why you twinkle in sky? It doesn’t help anybody’. It will say, ‘That it is in my nature, to twinkle’.

So it is our nature to help others, and to bring comfort to life. Every individual is in search of happiness. Even people who are doing bad things, are doing it in search of happiness. It is just that they don’t know that they won’t get it. If they knew that they won’t get happiness by doing bad things, they would never do it. They are doing all the wrong things simply because they do not know that they won’t be able to get happiness out of it. So it is our job to make them aware, ‘See, if you keep doing all these wrong things, you are only going to get more miserable. It is better that you do good things, then you will be happy’.

Are You A Tourist Or A Pilgrim?

What is the difference between a tourist and a pilgrim?Both are on a journey. Whereas a tourist is satisfying the senses, a pilgrim is in the quest of the truth. A tourist gets tired and tanned, while a pilgrim sparkles with spirit. Every move a pilgrim makes is with sacredness and gratitude, while a tourist is often preoccupied and unaware. A tourist compares with other experiences and places and hence is not in the present moment. But a pilgrim has a sense of sacredness, so he tends to be in the present moment.Most people in life are just tourists without even being aware of it. Only a few make their life a pilgrimage. Tourists come, look around, take pictures in their mind, only to come back again. Pilgrims are at home everywhere and are hollow and empty. When you consider life as sacred, nature waits on you.Are you a tourist or a pilgrim?

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

Dear Gurudev, is there a difference between the soul and the mind? Guruji:Mind is that which perceives. See, ‘you are looking at me’ is through the mind. If mind is elsewhere, you can’t see me, right? If you’re not paying attention, if you’re not being mindful, you can’t hear what I’m saying. When mind is elsewhere, can you hear what I’m saying? No, right? Though the sound is falling on the ears, if mind is elsewhere, you cannot hear. So our perception depends on the mind. But the totality of energy is what the soul, or you, are.

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

If you are a taker of happiness you get misery, if you are a giver of happiness you get joy and love.

=============
See the divine in yourself
You are stupid if you don’t see the Divine in me.If you see the Divine in me you cannot but be a part of me and you cannot be away from me. And if you feel a part of me you can only see the Divine in yourself. And if you can see the Divine in yourself, you’ll see the Divine in everyone.

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

Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.

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

Take a class to learn a new subject or skill.
=============

If there is a fight between truth and love. It is love that will win, and truth that will fail.

The Path to the Divine

The Divine can only be found in deep rest(Meditation).

Do you know what the obstacles to deep rest are? It is the cravings and aversions in the mind. If the mind is filled with cravings and aversions, rest is not possible. And if there is no rest, the goal of Sadhana (spiritual practices) cannot be achieved. That is why we need to be free from the cravings and aversions in our mind.
So, how do we do that?

‘I don’t need anything from anyone’, this is what we need to keep in our mind. When we don’t need anything from anyone, we will not have cravings towards anybody. When there is no craving for anybody, there will be no aversion to anybody. Let’s look at our aversions. Who are we averse to? Only those whom we think to be bad, isn’t it?
Don’t think of anyone as a bad person. There is no bad person in the world. If people do something bad, it is because of their ignorance or lack of awareness, or because their mind has been hurt. So, don’t have negative opinions about anybody.

If others have a negative opinion about you, it is their problem, not yours. From your side, do not consider anyone as bad. By doing this, your mind will be clear and pleasant and your intellect will be sharp.
===============
If you get what you want, there is a reason. If you don’t get what you want, there is a reason. Nature is intelligent. The divine is intelligent.
===============

Don’t be impressed by: 1. money, 2. followers, 3. degrees, 4. titles. Do be impressed by: 1. generosity, 2. integrity, 3. humility, 4. kindness.
===============
When one’s vision is imperfect, and they seem to find fault in everything around them, such a person is called Asuya. But Anusuya is one who does not keep finding faults in everything. So whom can you tell a great secret to? One who is Anusuya!
===============
Truth is that which remains constant and unchanging through the three phases of time.
