As consciousness moves deeper, a new outlook develops. The same world and the same people stand in a different light; and visions of day to day life undergo some changes. The vision instead of being straight moves in a 3D manner – it’s like 360 degrees of viewing.
Though giving greater joy, in some situations also brings up different meanings in the same people and situations, which may not always be pleasant.
Some truths it throws up could be truly ugly and difficult to digest and accept. It takes me back to Gurushree, at times this loss of identity I feel; I need to understand better. It’s not easy to see the different sides of people close, when perspective changes and reality stands naked in front of us.
One of the ugly realities of our outer world I ‘experienced’ was the negative influence of money power. – “All sanskars and spiritual values take a back seat, and all actions justified as the only sanskar majority follow is money power”.
None can be blamed, as with the limited vision one is never able to move beyond the glitter, nor can bring up the required courage to push aside the monetary value of the personality –
Ultimately God laughs, and throws some more money for them to catch; with the challenge – “Have the insight and courage to go beyond this maya and prove your understanding to me –
Can you find out what is truly valuable? –
‘Some more material benefits, some greater titles or powers’- or
“The truly great spiritual truths and mysteries and My Divine Love, all waiting for you to be unfolded, understood and enjoyed”.
Ultimately most of us drown in this maya, not knowing the opportunities we have missed, provided by the Superior Intelligence to move higher. Majority of the times we are tested; It also is an accepted fact that only when a certain level of material benefits are enjoyed, can its limitations be accepted and the understanding to move beyond it comes.
So when we already have certain amounts for a happy living, should we not ask the question “now what”- though it may seem extremely tough to keep aside time and energy for the inner growth, once the taste is there it will definitely pull you in, the magnet is that strong, one cannot help but be absorbed by it.
Oh! We may justify to ourselves in the various charities we do. A lot of good works are done, trusts developed, mandirs made, villages sponsored – it’s important and ok, but what about the intentions (bhao), which are actually more important than any amounts given away.
But “God cannot be cheated – Intelligence cannot be fooled” – All is known in the fields of Intelligence, and the result one receives is always not only on the actions but also the intentions,.
The greater humanity is easy to fool by the layers and layers of masks we cover ourselves with – it’s extremely easy, as no one actually has time to see beyond, and why would anyone make an effort, as long as no discomfort is experienced in the immediate living. We all live in the gross level of realities – ‘Instant gratification’ in all degrees of living – for this money power is important.
