Give me more..Dil maange more…!!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Heart and the Mind are always asking for more, “give me more”…always;

could be for things or for experiences – newer and better;   a little more exciting, a little better than the last time..

So what  happens?  We are always hungry; there is always greed and hunger;

for more, and more..

There are a few individuals controlling the mass intelligence – Marketing is the game of ‘Kalyug’.. (the present era according to Hinduism) As we are all aware of, in the entire human history there always have been a few individuals influencing the masses. And,

The course of humanity depends on who these ‘Few’ are,  what is their quality!

Running without satisfaction

Running without satisfaction

If these few; themselves are not peaceful nor content; and are so shallow, so hungry – what will they give humanity?

An illusion is created making us believe we are receiving a lot, we are progressing – yes progressing I would agree in a limited way – but towards what?

Losing one’s human ness? Falling in the trap of greediness?

We have forgotten to even respect nature – the bounties of which we are totally dependent on.

In this time period the whole of humanity is being taken to the summit of materialistic and luxury living; 100% sense pleasures – drown yourselves in them – go deeper in it.

What happens? What do we experience?

As the satisfaction achieved is very temporary, more and more is required for the same results, and the fun part is ‘the more you have the more you want’; human greed and appetite is never satisfied; contentment is never felt for any lasting period.

As the slogan of our times – Dil maange more’, is so apt for the dissatisfaction and unrest we experience in our lives today. The whole media is  manipulated into creating a demand which is never satisfied. We are being led to a truth of ‘Jet age gurus’, ‘Instant spirituality’, ‘Quick Kundalini rise’, ‘Immediate peace and better health’ etc              

All these slogans sound religious – but what’s the goal? Greater peace, better health, more religion, more knowledge, all leading to what? Only so that you can go on living and enjoying the ‘maya’ in a deeper way.abhashahra

Sad is to see how the youngest of our generations has been influenced by the media towards so much negativity. The ‘Sanskriti’ and religion of our country has become a joke in various social settings.

The whole environment has been made so sensual, how can the younger people escape from its influence? It’s become uncontrollable – as children blinded by what they see and read, go berserk in fulfilling themselves.

The need for everyone is joy that is ever lasting – love that    will never fade with time – And of course, total bliss and Anand.  

Intellectually, we may even know where it is and how to get there – but how many are able to put themselves in the open for the inner dimensions to be touched by the light?

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.

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.

                                                                            BUT:

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?

Living flowers are the fragrance of God

“You have no right to give death penalty to these beautiful flowers”, says Gurushree Sudhir Bhai

“Flowers, in a natural way give fragrance; you cannot give untimely death to them”.

I do not accept flowers from last nearly 8-10 years as my understanding says we should not pluck flowers for our pleasure. Living flowers are the fragrance of God, Presence of God”. “Giving a bouquet of flowers as wishes to someone is not right, as you had no right to pluck the flowers in the first place for your senses; they can be plucked when there is some correct purpose to it only”.

“But even after all the understanding that I try to give people around me, if some flowers come to me as a gift I look after them tenderly; and when all their fragrance and beauty is over I give them a proper funeral by putting them in water. I do not just throw them in the dustbin”.

“Flowers, nature, must be respected, their beauty and fragrance is to be enjoyed when they are alive in their natural surroundings. If you yet wish to gift flowers, then gift them live in a pot, or gift a garden to me, I will take full care and look after them. In this way I receive your wishes also and can enjoy the living beauty and fragrance of the plants and flowers” says Gurushree.

These are the sentiments of Gurushree and if one thinks deeply show us how we could learn enjoyment without being selfish.

                                                                  

I would also accept Nature as a gift from God which is complete with all colours and fragrances. It could also be called the canvas of God where He delights our senses with His creations. All this He provides to us free and there is no restriction placed on who can enjoy the beauty.

His painting is visible in the uncountable varieties of colour and designs and fragrance in nature.

Respect for all life in nature is very deeply connected with spirituality.

                              

A thought can change your life

Something you did or did not do, in the past years or past births has bought this situation in your life today.

Wether this situation is ‘good or bad’; is not the question.

The point is that this situational fact will never disappear.

What is in your hand are your thoughts and the related actions as of NOW.

What you think or do TODAY will give positive or negative outcomes tomorrow.

A thought can change your life.

Whatever thoughts you think, similar actions follow in your life. Then whatever the actions or responses come from your thoughts, that will create the particular outcome and situation in your life.

Keep positivism and faith high, moving with the right motivation.

With positivity in thoughts one exercises total control over the thoughts, which ultimately control the actions performed; and then finally on the outcomes one experiences in life. In this way we can have total control over what we chose to experience in our lives henceforth.

Only you can help yourself, others can only guide.

“Prayers and Blessings from God can help in movement towards positive living and success”.

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?
