अपनों से अपनी बात – May 2016
Dialog with loved ones…
Dear Loved One,
You come to meet me, sit besides me, discuss about your issues, and sometimes you obtain Diksha initiation. All of this is a living active process. This process is termed as Guru-disciple relationship.
Guru-disciple relationship is a vital lively moment, imbibing that moment of aliveness within yourself is the disciple-hood, realization of Guru, merger with the Guru. What does an alive Guru mean? In presence of Whom, some turbulence starts within yourself, some turmoil-upheaval commences within you, your inner senses get ready to radiate out. Where you prepare yourself for complete surrender-dedication, become ready for total love, this is the meaning of a living Guru full of aliveness.
Is it necessary for the Guru to speak all the time? Should the Guru always give orders and commands? Should the Guru always guide the disciple in the sadhana camp? Should the Guru always continue to mentor and guide all the time, No! In the presence of an alive living Guru, Whose silence itself triggers agitation within you, the gaze of Whose eyes increases your heart beat, in Whose presence, Whose appearance grants peace and calmness to your mind, then you realize that your are in the benign company of a living Guru full of aliveness.
I grant your Diksha, place my hands on your forehead, let you sit besides me, then you should comprehend my advice properly.
First, the actions are the primary basis of this Sadhana life, you have to constantly keep on doing work. Whatever knowledge you gather from the books, that is a dead knowledge. It does not cause any germination of transforming Kalpvriksha within you. On the other hand, the wisdom is a living entity, this wisdom can transform the Kalpvriksha within you into a blossoming banyan tree. It can grant joy to each atom of your self.
Books can only furnish information, they can only provide knowledge. Do not misinterpret this knowledge as wisdom. The divine words of Guru open the doors of wisdom and enlightenment within you. You can utilize your knowledge on the basis of this wisdom. So do not just remain knowledgeable, at least try to become wise.
You worship a lot, but this worship is not filled with the frenzy of devotion, this is not the real worship, it is just a process of channelizing out the energy. The real worship and devotion is the one, which motivates you to travel inside, so always tread on the path of real wisdom and real worship and yes! Always remember that this can develop only through work and Karma actions. Staying solely dependent on Guru blessings or grace of God is not wise or prudent.
The grace of Guru is a very sacred object and this grace is continuously flowing from the power of the divine Providence. There is no alternative to Guru’s grace for upliftment of a Sadhak’s life, however one cannot adorn the holy grace in absence of karma actions. The actions convert impossible into possible. Always remember, the meaning of Karma is – the power of action.
Some see miracles in their routine-life, and sense some divine miraculous actions. This all depends on the values and virtues of each Sadhak. Do not study the diversity of these miracles. This process will continue. Divine experiences will keep occurring, and each person has a different experience. Do not compare your experiences with experiences of others. Always stay focussed on your target goal, through your energy.
Slowly and Steadily Climb the Mountain

Whatever happens slowly, that is right, that is good, that is Shivatav. Generally a quick growth of any specific sense is not right. The divinity within you will develop only gradually. This magnificent process also occurs slowly and steadily. I lead you on the path of worship, on the path of Sadhana. In reality, the Worship-Sadhana is an ideal model spiritual path. All Gods-Goddesses, all supernatural powers are outer manifestations of that divine ideal power. Basically, everything is an extended profile of the divine energy, but you should always remain focussed and concentrated in the divine sense, in the Guru sense, to experience this divine power, to realize the power of self.
You keep on trying, to alter the karma actions, you cannot change them. You need to change – your attitude-nature. If you modify your inner sense, your basic attitude, then the karma actions will change automatically.
Karma basically means – attitude-nature. Your own inner-self within you, it always stays with you. Neither can anyone give it to you, nor can anyone take it from you. The method to remove and purge the malefic effects of karmas is – changing the attitude.
I am connected with your life to unite you with your basic real attitude and nature. This process of altering the attitude will not complete in one day, it may take time, but you yourself will have to prepare the foundation, the ground for this to happen. The seed of wisdom will automatically germinate within you. You should now purify the foundation of your senses, keep on enriching it with Sadhanas, fertilize it with the wisdom-element. In due course of time, it will be ready to harvest.
Today I speak to you from my mind – the Guru neither issues any command nor give any order. Any outer command or order will add a weighty burden to you. The commands and actions, leading to future work actions, sprout automatically from your inner consciousness and Guru-power-grace, gets strengthened. It is not necessary for me to speak a few words, all the time, in each situation.
If you feel even for a moment that – Guru is with you, then that moment is the most joyous moment for you. Keep cherishing those moments, steady addition of these moments will create a treasure cove of wisdom and joy for you, and your “self” spirit will permanently change into “attitude-nature”, then your words will become divine portents.
SadGurudev Nikhil always used to state one point and I always get strength from those words. I am repeating those words for all disciples – You should not worry about any issue, I am always with you, and will always stay with you. You will be able to properly grasp and understand this fact only by performing the right action karmas, and you will never feel ignorance or privations about anything…”
Always be certain …, keep SadGuru in your thoughts … keep experiencing Him within yourself, He is always with you …
