Integration: Radiation and Absorption

Whatever you think, speak or do is a radiation for totality. It has always been so–now after awakening you realize it more than ever. All words you think, write and all expressions via body, mind and speech are radiations. If you feel you belong to a community of light workers, angels, humanity, star-seeds or gods—your expressions, your creativity is connecting you to the mind-continuum of those very beings across time and space. Absorption is receiving words, light-codes, energy in all its possible forms from all existence. If you feel you belong to a certain group you will receive light from them. The actuality of radiation and absorption–the interconnections of various forms of consciousness and dependent arising of all phenomena becomes overwhelming and then enlightening as you awake towards your full-potential.

Verily, not for the sake of the worlds, my dear, are the worlds loved, but they are loved for the sake of the self. Verily, not for the sake of the gods, my dear, are the gods loved, but they are loved for the sake of the self.

By the realization of the Self, my dear-through hearing, reflection, and meditation-all this is known.

Being Kind is Not Being Fool!

While walking on spiritual path it’s necessary to understand certain paradoxical situations which are subtle but vital for our growth. Sages like Buddha and Narada transformed barber dacoits and murderers like Angulimala and Valmiki by power of their enlightenment and charisma. Prima facie it seems appropriate for all of us to not restrain any company good or bad too, as everyone of us has the same god residing inside. But on a closer inspection and while living by these principles it will be known that it’s not very practical always. 

 

Renunciates were suggested to never visit their families in ancient times. They used to mingle with other people and sometimes even with other householders( though some injunctions strictly prohibit mingling with other householders too) but not with their families. The reason behind it was to avoid dense karma they shared with family members. It’s easier to deal with karma while being with people you are not too close to but when it comes to close relations most of us get bewildered and they are the true test of your transcending modes of nature. If you can stay without reacting to your spouse or siblings you might have transcended karma. But most people can’t do so, especially in the initial stages of spiritual practice, that is why those injunctions suggested to stay away from family members. Now, the same lord resides inside the family as does inside you but the separation was to ripen your practice.

Pearls of Wisdom From Bhagavad Geeta!

4585894937

 

Bhagavad Geeta is the song of lord Krishna. It was delivered in the battlefield of Kurukshetra some 5000 years ago to Arjuna who was his beloved friend and disciple. It has been influencing thinkers of world since then. Originally its 700 verses were part of sage Vyasa’s epic Mahabharata. I will take verses of Geeta from my reading and discuss them with you.

Today I am taking verses 5th and 6th from chapter 3, Karma Yoga:

Everyone is compelled by the modes of nature working inside them to act. No one could be without doing Karma even for a moment. ||5||

One who forcibly controls sense organs but keeps thinking about sensory objects is called a hypocrite. ||6||

Krishna is explaining importance of performing duties to Arjuna who is terrified of battlefield. In previous verses he tells him that there are two ways to know self–one is to realize it by doing meditation as Jnanis do and another is to perform devotional service of lord. Without these two if you declare yourself a renunciate you will be merely deluding yourself.  Continue reading “Pearls of Wisdom From Bhagavad Geeta!”

I Can’t Stay Mad at You!

I Can’t Stay Mad at You

Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget?

holding-on-to-anger-is-like-grasping-a-hot-coal

I believe in forgive and forget. When I perceive an injustice it does make me unsettled but the perception involves me seeing that there are innumerable causes behind it. The person who is doing something wrong, either to me or to someone else is merely an instrument. The darkness inside the person is not really his choice. There are no evil persons in the world. Darkness is the absence of light, so everyone is inherently good because everyone is made of light. Their psyche is overpowered by darkness and they suffer more than the people who suffer because of them.

This is one side. Another side is, acceptance. If I totally take the responsibility for my situation and believe that it is test for me, for my patience and whatever happens to me happens because somehow I carry seeds for its fruition, there remains no need of even forgiving anyone because they are not the reason behind my pain and suffering. Forgiving is a better choice if you don’t understand Karma too. If you are without conflict you can sleep better and live more peacefully. With heavy heart you can neither sleep well nor function fully. Forgiving is good and forgetting conflict is also good, but we should learn our lessons too. This is what is meant by being sensitive. If you learn your lessons your wisdom might help you and many others in future. Forgiving people who have darkness and as many times as it is needed doesn’t mean that you don’t have boundaries. You need to keep your distance from some people or situations to be at peace and this is wisdom. Recklessness is not kindness.
