He is in our hearts

My Dears
            Tears express pain, agony and lonliness. Tears can express joy too. In totality, tears express our various emotions. Tears, well spent, removes the clouds of our mind, like the blue sky after a good rain. It allows the sun, which is our intellect, to peep through into life again. Once the tears are well spent, it is time to be real. After the rain, the sun must shine again. This is the law of nature. Sun has always been there. But, while the clouds of emotions obscured them, it remained invisible. Just be aware of that.
When has an avatar left us? Has Lord Krishna existed from our plane of existence? He is very much here. Have Jesus, Buddha or Rama left us? Physical form has only represented expressions or experiences. It is temporary and situational. The truth that they conveyed is eternal. It is imperishable. This is the truth of our existence and this is the truth that we must know. Their religion has been Love. Teachings have been the same. Expressions were different, because the society they addressed had been different. Mostly, their own life was their teaching, more than verbal or literary teachings. This is also why, sometimes they and their teachings are mis-interpreted or mis-represented. So, no incarnation and none of their teachings have left our plane of existence. This is a fundamental truth.
All Gurus are one. All masters are one. All appeared for a clear dharmic purpose of leading people towards liberation. All came to bring light into ignorance and associated darkness. All lived for the sake of others. For them, life and death are insignificant. Criticism or applause are insignificant. Out of many flowers that bloom in the tree of existence, some becomes fruits. Every flower will not become fruit. Only some walks the path till the end. Many fall off, during their journey of life. Gurus are compassionate. They allow the rise and fall disciples. They never impose anything. They allow their nature to express freely. Gurus continue to show light, whether they are in their body or not. The eternal principle of Guru (Guru Tattwa) eternally flows.
Mind stuck in the past means agony in the present. Mind must travel with time, the present time. Mind must remain in the present and intellect should remain free and available. When intellect is locked up, tragedies happen in life. When emotions rule, tragedies take place. It is important to keep the mind with the body, in the present.
All those who existed with us in the past has added value to our existence. We must be grateful towards them. Especially so, if it is an Avatar. An Avatar is eternal. It has no birth or death. It’s existence is purpose bound. The best way to connect to an Avatar is to connect to His/Her teachings, consume it slowly, digest it properly and LIVE IT truthfully. A sadguru needs nothing from anyone. If their teachings are useful to generations, they are pleased. if they are not useful or understood, they are not sad. Everything is fine for a sadguru. They are never bound by their own image.
Look at your past and all the people of past, including all those whom you considered as your Gurus, with gratitude and reverance. Remain in the present. Act in the present. Love those around you today and enjoy their presence in your life. Companionships are often temporary, just like relationships. Do not lose your present. Cherish your present. Enjoy every bit of it. Be grateful for every moment. Be grateful for everything. Do not lose focus on the present, including its people, by lingering in the past. All you have for yourself is your NOW.
The sun must continue to shine. When sun fails, the earth and all its beings perish. When nature revolts, destruction happens. When our individual nature revolts, emotions wreak havoc and destruction happens in our individual life. We are well connected to nature. We are reflecting the nature.
Think of the past with gratitude and not regret or guilt. Accept the present with gratitude. Act in the present using intellect. Honor the sadgurus of the past and present and LIVE their teachings. Then, their time on earth becomes worthwhile. No sadguru has left us. They live through their teachings. They live through those who lives their teachings.
Gratitude…thats all you need. If you connect to their consciousness, through their teachings, you arrive at the hands of GOD.
Love YOU

Prayer of Surrender

Why get agitated? Let Me take care of all your business. I shall be the one who will think about them. I am waiting for nothing else than your surrender to Me, and then you do not have to worry any more about anything. Say farewell to all fears and discouragement. You demonstrate that you do not trust Me. On the contrary, you must rely blindly on Me.

To surrender means: To turn your thoughts away from troubles, to turn them away from difficulties you encounter and from all your problems. Leave everything into My hands saying “Lord, Thy will be done. Thou think of it.” That is to say: “Lord I thank you for you have taken everything in your hands, and you will resolve this for my highest good.”

Remember that thinking of the consequences of a thing is contrary to surrender. That is to say, when you worry that a situation has not had the desired outcome, you thus demonstrate that you do not believe in My love for you. You will prove that you do not consider your life to be under My control and that nothing escapes Me.

Never think: How is this to end?… What is going to happen? If you give into this temptation, you demonstrate that you do not trust Me. Do you want Me to deal with it…yes or no? Then you must stop being anxious about it! I shall guide you only if you completely surrender to Me and when I must lead you into a different path than the one that you expect, I carry you in My arms.

What seriously upsets you is your reasoning, your worrying, your obsession, your will to provide for yourselves at any price. I can do so many things when the being, as much in his material necessities as in his spiritual ones, turns to Me saying: “You think of it.” then he closes his eyes and rests quietly. You will receive a lot but only when your prayer will rely fully upon Me. You pray to Me when in pain so that I intervene, but in the way you desire it. You do not rely on Me, but you want Me to adjust your requests.

Don’t behave like sick ones who ask a treatment to the doctor, all the time suggesting it to him. Do not do that; but rather, even in sad circumstances, say: “Lord I praise and thank You for this problem, for this necessity. I pray You to arrange things as You please for this terrestrial and temporal life. You know very well what is best for me.”

Sometimes you feel that disasters increase instead of diminish. Do not get agitated. Close your eyes and tell me with faith: “Thy will be done. You think of it.” And when you speak thus, I accomplish a miracle when necessary. I only think of it when you trust me totally. I always think of you, but I can only help you completely when you rely fully on Me.

Bundle of complexes

network_neurons

I am a bundle of complexes. I do not know what can I give up and how, in order to unburden me and keep my spirituality in progress. Can you please guide?

Who is not a bundle of complexes? All humans are. So, do not worry about that. Being aware of the complexes itself is a big step towards spiritual awakening. How can you give up anything? By giving up there will be a vacuum. Hence giving up, deliberately is not a good idea. Moving on to something of higher, more satwic nature is better. Then, all what you want to give up, will drop off. This also applies to addictions. Forceful de-addictions without providing alternatives are not the right method. Diverting time onto more noble activities are the best way to move higher. When the lower automatically drops, its usually for good, unless, the vasana (inherent trait) for that particular activity has not yet died down completely. So, be happy that you have acquired awareness. Be happy that you have recognized your own nature. Now, start walking the path. Never stop to ponder, Walk with faith and determination. You will certainly reach your desired destination.

Is it true that Divine bodies or higher souls from other zones take birth on earth plane and get caught up in its birth and death cycle?

It is true. The reason is usually terrestrial relationship. Even though they are born objective,they will not be able to be objective always, in their chosen physical form. They become subjective and subjectivity sucks them to the quagmire of birth and death. Yet, their linkage to the higher will usually be strong. They would be very  intuitive. They would also be linked to their original plane of existence. Even their guardian angels will be watching over them. You can see them usually self-less and often a misfit in this society. They could also be made fools of or cheated by others. They spiritually evolve faster than the usual humans. They could also be seen changing paths effortlessly. They could drop everything and embark on a new thing without regrets or looking back. This shows their detachment to terrestrial matters.

There are masters taking birth for a few years. They would be distinctly different. You can see many terrestrial masters who walked the earth and currently walking the earth. They are genuinely high and they are never caught up in the usual birth – death cycle. Usually, when such high souls come to earth, many other souls also take bodies to aid them. Just like the entire army Rama including Hanumanji and Sugreeva, have all been great souls coinciding their terrestrial entry to aid an avatar.

Thus, there are many permutation combinations. It is advisable to not to get into intellectual stuff too much. Because, its very difficult to get out of intellectual comfort zone. We develop ego and pride. “A person who is proud of his intellect is like a prisoner who is proud of his prison cell.” – Said Fr.Anthony Demello.

 

Who is a sadguru?

The one who is like a road sign, who never expects anything from the user. The one who is like a flowing river, who nourishes the entire land unconditionally. Gives water to everyone, irrespective of his caste, creed or color. One who is like the rain, that showers his grace on all alike. One who leads a dispassionate existence, detached from the lures of the terrestrial world. One who does not glorify himself. One who maintains equanimity in happiness and sorrow. One who gives all that he has and never hoards anything. One who does not sow or reap, karmically. One who is above all emotions, but, feels for all. One who gives what each disciple needs, exactly according to the disciple’s capacity and requirement, expecting nothing out of him.

Sadguru is a state. Baba and Babaji are one. Krishna and Rama are one. Buddha and Jesus are one. Forms are plenty. Mind is the same. They appear time after time, to impart knowledge and guidance and depart as easily as they came. They never look back. Applause and brickbats are the same for them. They do their mission objectively.

God Bless All

Love
