अपनों से अपनी बात – Nov 2015
Dialog with loved ones…
Dear loved one,
You ought to carefully discern some of my messages and understand them.
First you should understand that you certainly are different, you are not a part of the crowd, therefore you have broken some traditions; you have discarded the path of your fathers and ancestors and have choosen to hold your Guru’s hand. There is certainly something in you, as you have forsaken blind devotion to progress on Guru Shakti path. They were full of faith, and you also have a lot of faith, but your faith is intermingled with austerity, there is no humility-slavery in this faith. There is a sense of courage.
People say that the courageous and brave chalk out their own path. Probably they have not read or understood properly about those courageous heroes. The courageous and braves tread the path which leads to goal accomplishments. They do not take the routes which lack objectives, and they do not blindly follow anyone. They recognize through their mental powers, they choose the destination which the path will lead to, and ascertain whether they are on the correct path towards their goals. Their resolution is always firm, once they have decided. Perhaps, this is what makes others feel the quantum of their difficulties.
When the decision is irrevocable, the principles are irrevocable, the emotions are pure , the thoughts are intense, action is the base foundation; then those brave heroic individuals certainly achieve their targets. Who can stop them, what can falter them?
Do not study just the stories of success and inspiration from history, these stories will create confusion. The successful personalities have undergone sufferings, this does not mean that you face similar obstacles by treading the same path. You should consider the causes for those difficult and arduous circumstances in their lives. And what did they decide to overcome those problems?
You make your own decision and decide that if I face a similar crucial situation in my life, then what will my decision be. When your decision is intermixed with your own wisdom and ideas, then it will certainly be the best choice for you. Do not repeat mistakes made by others, our psyche has to learn from their mistakes, so that we do not repeat them ourselves.
I state that in this life, do not compare yourself with others, do not ever do comparisons. When you start comparisons, then you label someone as younger, or someone else as bigger, you label someone as successful or a failure. Tell me, do you get any learnings from these comparisons. Do you gain anything? On the contrary, you only increase your frustrations with these comparisons, so you should completely stop making these comparisons.
There is no one in the entire universe like you, no one has a body like yours, no one has a mind like yours. No one else thinks same thoughts as you do. Whatever you have got, is unique, is distinctive, and it is yours and only yours. No one can snatch it from you, and no one can add anything to it. You are the king of the realms of your mind, and your body.
You yourself have to insert the oblations of ideas into this physical-mental form of sacrifice fire. You have to keep ignited your inner flame. You have to transform the light of your inner self into a blazing sun. No one will come to give you anything or to take anything away from you. You yourself should continuously and steadily insert the oblations of knowledge into the sacrifice fire of your life, your light; for your own good; and you will obtain most of the fruits of these labors, and no one can snatch these fruits from you.
Your progress is yours and yours only, you will not be known through the names of your ancestors, rather you will be known for your own achievements. Always remember these thoughts, these directions, and these objectives. This is the basic formula of “Aham Brahmasmi”. This entire world is moving around you. You are the central locus, your are the “Tatvamasi”.
I certainly invite you several times in the year to meet me, these opportunities are Guru Poornima, Sanyas Mahotsava, New Year, MahaShivraatri and Nikhil Jayanti.
All of these occasions are full of pureness and novelty. On these occasions, I openly embrace you freely and open my heart expressions to merge them with your heart expressions. These are the Mahaparvs (grand festivals) for Guru-disciple union after removal of all kinds of mental bondages. You came this year on Guru Poornima to Jagannathpuri, you rejoiced and so did I.
You must write and send me your experiences during Guru Poornima, what did your feel and what is your own spiritual experience? Send these sentiments to me. What do others say? Stop worrying about that, your own feelings and emotions; those are most significant for me.
You will celebrate Deepawali festival in your house with my voice. You have to celebrate this occasion with full enthusiasm and fervor; you have to setup Lakshmi in your home. After brightening your home with Divine Guru light, you should surely come to Bhatapara, Chhattisgarh. The preparation of the Sanyas Mahotsava is going on with full splendor in Chhattisgarh Bhatapara. The entire Chhattisgarh is working together. You should at least try to come; if there is any lapse, SadGuru Nikhil will Himself drag you. My heart always rejoices at your irrepressible longing, yearning and feeling.
I know that you want to come to meet me again and again, and when you yourself wish to come, then no one can stop you even if they try a million attempts. I repeatedly urge you that you are not meant to run on those old, worn-out tracks which your ancestors created. You cannot blindly follow someone, you have an open mind, free thoughts, liberated spirit and an independent personality inside you. The day you understand this, comprehend this, from that day, no one will dare to stop you. You yourself will not be able to stop your feet from walking over to meet me.
Hence I am only urging you that you have to certainly come to Delhi on the New Year’s Eve (26 to 27 December 2015) at the Arogyadham, Delhi on to give your own oblations into the majestic, magnificent life Yagya, Aatma Yagya – Mahabodhi Tatvamasi Utsava , to activate your own Kriya-tatva, to imbibe the Tatva knowledge of life within each pore and vessel of your body, to realize and awaken “Tatvamasi Tatva”.
You are the Tatva (element), you are the focal point, you have your own independent existence.
Yours and my relationship is an eternal one, I think so –
The pearls have an instinct to scatter out, but
The thread insists to be bound together …
Our owns automatically become ours
None can become ours through a bidding
You are the pearl of the Guru heart necklace, always stay happy ….
Nand Kishore Shrimali
