Have you all become aware of this reaction of the human mind to challenging situations in this world?
I have, many a time.
And I have realized one truth for sure. I wonder if it is only a truth for me or is it for all (leave alone exceptions) .a general truth!
When I hear of natural calamities or unnatural calamities as brought about by man, be it floods, earthquakes, road/rail/air accidents, the first thought that surfaces is “Oh! hope my children/my parents/my friends/grandparents are safe, healthy etc!
This thought is an instinctive one and is also akin to an involuntary action limited to positive affirmation, prayers etc for who all one has a sense of belonging to! Very natural. nothing to feel guilty about.. harmless selfishness!
In contrast, is or are those thoughts that may be congenitally so in some fortunate embodied souls,or, are voluntary in the beginning, but, by regular spiritual practices(to me, it is My Master’s Grace and the Sudarshan Kriya)as initiated into by those in that capacity to do so, these can take a shift towards instinctive, involuntary thoughts or prayers that go out to one and all ..unconditionally..as one experiences that WE ARE ONE GLOBAL family and need to inspire, support, pray for , and work together as ONE to save each other, leaving aside all past hurts dangerously lodged in the mind if any, forgetting differences country, religion, ideologies etc.
When the shift happens, prayers go out to one and all simultaneously .. O Lord! Hope this doesn’t take innocent lives or afflict anyone with diseases that cause great suffering! O Lord.. Mercy!
Especially, we are indeed the most fortunate ones who, may be for just a few moments or may be more , have gone beyond those ‘I/my/mine gates’ and can instinctively involuntarily think about and pray for those, who, on the world-stage, have always talked ill of us, slandered us, insulted and ill-treated us every time we had to travel with them on life’s journey. Every time we might have tried to take a step forward to iron out differences or clear misunderstandings if any , these people may have rescripted, redirected and re-acted the story, maybe, to cover up what they think are ‘lacks’ and to keep up their social image of being good, loving, and what not! Poor desperate, struggling souls! They probably have never loved themselves and hence may not have experienced peace within!
Nowadays, my heart goes out to these souls as they don’t touch me emotionally anymore as they used to. Yes they used to take my gestures towards them as my weakness, emotional vulnerability and simplicity or naivety whatever! But I ‘played’along with them sincerely and it paid off with most! But there are a few.. I can count them on my fingers ..who can never change their ways.
It has become a boring game for me to sustain such destiny relationships at the worldly level. I have freed them from the shackles that I had tied them to, not by their behaviour ,words and action, but , by my own reaction to these with my ego-body and cloyed reason and intellect and emotions that must have tripped from the perfect balance.
These few have been transferred from my mind to my heart-centre by PURE GRACE and this has changed my equation with them. I don’t any longer keep in touch with them at the world level of communication through phone and mail but when I sit for my prayer and meditation, I pray to My Master to fill their hearts with so much love and peace that all their struggles within and without are over!
I used to do that earlier also, but the difference is that I have stopped repeatedly trying to convince anyone that I love them and I have stopped repeatedly saying ‘sorry’and asking for forgiveness in case I had done any harm to them intentionally or unintentionally.
And believe me this change within has given me such joy and peace as no-one can destroy. ..such infinite freedom within that I experience in this finite matter-body with its paraphernalia!
This moment this is the truth and this moment has been my experience moment-to-moment for quite sometime now.
Life is here and now or never!
This is for sure.. just like one needs to brush one’s teeth regularly to keep them healthy one needs to do Sudarshan Kriya or equally powerful techniques regularly for mental and emotional cleansing and sustenance as such!
Thank you O Master for Thy Grace, techniques, meditation and most of all.. SUDARSHAN KRIYA!!!
Such is the Power of Grace of the Master!
