One of the magic keys to stepping up fast in spirituality, is to be able to forgive all, as forgiveness grants peace,
which in turn brings joy, which ultimately helps in reducing the clutter of negativity in our minds.
This happens because we are always trying to blame the other people out there for all that goes wrong in our world.
This forms a very unnecessary cycle of finger pointing and revenge amongst people around us.
But, try it and see, that as soon as you begin to take responsibility for your life experiences,
you will become aware of your thoughts and be able to forgive all those “Others”;
And in return receive “Peace” and hence “Joy” for yourself

No calculations or greed in bhakti
Purity of actions – No calculations or greed in bhakti –
Always feel gratitude for all that has been given to you. Value it and share it with some who may need it and do not have it. Giving of anything – feelings or gifts in kind should be an act complete in itself. The moment you begin to expect something in return, the purity of the action is lost and karmically nothing is gained. This holds directly to God also. We give Him a lot in terms of maybe chadava (offerings), mantra jap (chantings), havans (fire offerings), vrat (fasting), sewa (ritualistic worship), daan (charity), teerth (pilgrimage) etc…What do we hold in our thoughts and hearts as we perform this karma? Is not there always a continuous counting and calculation going on in our mind?
I did this – I will get that
I offered so much – I will receive so much back
I did puja, pilgrimage – my punya has increased – my next birth will be better
I did daan, dharm (religious charity) – I have cancelled my paap or negative karma, so I become purer
I did some parikrama – I collect xyz points in my list of punya
I will now escape hell and reach heaven
Till this calculation of adding punya does not go away; one will not be purified enough to get closer to God. Of course, the punya karta’s position will be better then the rest of the humans who do not indulge in this sewa also. But it will hardly provide any closeness to God; your intentions get you the results; God stays away till the time you begin to offer your actions and the fruit of these actions; totally at His lotus feet.
Despite God standing there, over flowing with His Divine Love and Bliss He is helpless.
We as humans are not able to follow the Holy Gita in the right manner towards the path of unmotivated karmas – actions. Our greed from the outer dimensions is never satisfied and we keep on moving in circles on the outer zero – cheating ourselves in this process.
As soon as our gifts – in any form are only with bhao for Thakurjee the initial connection with Him gets established. Purity levels increase as you surrender all in His name and bhao. That is true religion and dharma——
To work for Thakurjee
To give Him joy.
To offer ourselves totally in His service.
To become the mediator for Him to enable Him to enter the outer dimensions and spread around.

Call of your Soul
Call of your soul
Walk your path in faith fearlessly
“No matter what everyone else thinks or says, if your own intentions are right, do not be afraid – there are moments when you have to follow the call of your soul. If you want to reach anywhere high stop giving unnecessary importance to voices around”.
“Most of them do not even understand what’s happening; all they’re interested is trying to stop anyone from moving away from what “they’ think is the right way to do things”.
I clarify this, as many have this wrong understanding; “if one is in search for the truth and depth in spirituality; the person is trying to run away from responsibilities and has stopped caring”.
I would like to state here that “deeper insights and higher spirituality teaches one to become more responsible and develop greater compassion towards all”.
There is a greater flowing of divinity and love, and even being in the close proximity of these seekers a regular flow is always received by all around.
This misconception about true religion and spiritual growth needs to be corrected in the minds of them, who may have understood wrongly.
Without neglecting any worldly responsibilities, I have to move fast. – I cannot miss the opportunity provided by God to experience the highest peak and bliss – I have to move deeper – I know what I want to do and there will be no human power to stop me from reaching the highest summit of spirituality and God realization.
I can see ShreeNathji smiling at me as I write this.
With His hand on my head like an umbrella, I have all the protection and blessings I need….

Blind following the blind
Sometimes the majority only means all the fools are on one side
I had read this line somewhere and it stuck in my thoughts as being so true in the area of religion and spirituality also.
The ‘majority’ here would stand for the mass of human seekers, as they do not even know what they do receive in all their various sadhanas.
It’s like ‘The blind following the blind’; ‘Let’s run, lets do whatever all the other 1000’s are doing’.
To actually find that peace, satisfaction, enlightenment which all seek is not easy, nor can be reached without sacrifices or choices.
You cannot continue to be totally involved in the mayic world; in its activities of accumulating more wealth and seeking higher pleasures; yet claim to be religious or spiritual!
‘Actions performed without the right understanding will give no positive results’- Gurushree.
This firm stability is necessary when you set out to move deeper within, with continued progress in every hour spent for this pursuit.
If time is first spent in analyzing and understanding, actions will be performed with awareness and the positive results received will give rise to faith, also known as complete shraddha –
Here the right understanding gives courage to follow that which gives positive results, despite moving in the opposite direction of the majority.
Right understanding gives courage to walk your own path no matter what the majority may say;
It gives courage to stay firm when the majority try to pull you back to the accepted followed way of religion..
All wish to be ‘safe’, all wish to receive something with the least effort in the least of time.In these moments of spending their precious time on various religious practices, rituals and activities; none spend some time in trying to at least analyse how much benefit they receive;
As the majority of humans do practice religion to some extent, if what the majority did was the right and only way, we would not see the frustrations and unrest all around; our world would experience the peace, shanti, and satisfaction we so desperately need. If all was ok with what all were practicing how come all have not reached?
Destruction is not positive progress
Why as the great, progressive, loving, compassionate humans
that we like to call ourselves do we make weapons?
To spread love? To spread humanity?
Obviously no :
We try to make ourselves believe wrongly that we are spreading a lot of love and are capable of receiving as much; and are progressing as a human race.
Can destroying nations, people, and nature be called love or humanity in any possible way?
Destruction is not positive progress.
All talk about Love. All want love.
All have a need to belong.
Weapons are made only to create fear; to bring destruction
Can jealousy be a part of love? Can there be expectation in love?
All try to make a show of being compassionate.
Can creating fear in any way be associated with love?
Have humans maintained their humanity
A strong powerful mind and emotions are some characteristics which distinguish humans from the animal kingdom.Maximum humans live on their instincts.
This powerful mind which God has blessed us with also gives us the capacity to discriminate between right or wrong. Why turn backwards in human mind evolution and begin to live on instincts; in mankind it is termed as selfishness.
Joy, Anand, Bliss are experiences in Self Awareness, but available only for humans who have maintained their humanity.
Only fending for your self; ‘eat, drink, sleep, accumulate, procreate’;
this is how an animal is born to function;
Make your life joyous by going beyond what all do; bring out your own discriminative power; live your life on them. You will always find God’s blessings with you.
Remember happiness is not ‘out there’; it is in within you;
which you will automatically experience as soon as you begin to spread it to others.
Whatever you give out you will receive for yourselves.
I very strongly believe in the karmic theory:
All situations are the outcome of our own actions; what you did yesterday you experience the outcome today; what you do today you will experience in your life tomorrow. Is it not important then to know exactly what actions performed today will give us that we need to be happy tomorrow?
