Dialog with Loved Ones ….
Dear Loved One
Every dawn heralds a new day. However when both of us sit next to each other, then the simple fact of talking-gazing each other, itself stimulates energy, power and consciousness. Mere rubbing of two pieces of flint generates a spark, which spreads out as fire flame. Our intermingling results in a similar process. Our journey together is very simple, and is full of energy, power, intensity and warmth. I bless you to be as bright as the rising sun. Become the sun where energy and light co-exists with freshness and innovation, resulting in wonderful brilliance.
This brilliance will certainly imbibe into your own self. The mind should get deeply refreshed thereby multiplying the joy. The union of Guru-disciple is the process to rejoice the mind. This joy is the real fact of life in the right sense. You have completed enough journey through darkness. Darkness is also a part of life, and some shades of darkness certainly come into everyone’s life for some period of time. However, the truth is that we cannot relish the joy of light in the absence of darkness. Darkness repeatedly scares the mind and engulfs it within the whirlpool of anxious worries. The worried mind tries everything to escape this cesspool, and finally retreats away directionless. It gets frustrated with desperation. However, a tiny hope of a superior future, a bright sunshine still flickers away in a remote corner of the mind. The darkness always confers frustration, despair, misery and fear. However, you are a disciple of Guru Nikhil and your mind cannot be so timid.
This darkness is gigantically vast. You are wasting time and your delay in getting out of this darkness, is making it worse transcending you deeper in gloom. You have forgotten an important aspect of life. You have forgotten your strength of detachment-severance, of letting it go away. This is the process to kick away the bondages. SadGurudev Nikhil used to always advice to make a long jump by cutting away the shackles of the society. You have not been able to assimilate the habit of severing away. You continue to bond with material items, places and relations; and these bindings continue to dominate you, thereby pushing you recurrently into the dark vortex. Your hands are tied within these bondages. Your mind is chained within these shackles. This darkness is becoming deeper.
Forsaking requires a big dose of strength and power. How can you capture something without freeing up your hands? Accepting novelty while forsaking the old, requires great courage. However, you ought to do this. You cannot stay tied within these bonds and shackles.
Devotion ought to melt like snow
A Ganga in Himalayas flow
If not in mine at least in your bosom
Of any kind, but a fire ought to glow
Both you and I are soulmates, you are part of my soul. You are not distinct from me, and I am not different from you. Both of our souls are closely intertwined with each other. The Divine nectar within us is striving to merge together. Do not stop the flow of this divine elixir. We will need to find the answers within our own self somewhere.
The mind always remains submerged within the same darkness. We just need to churn within that mind itself. We need to initiate disruption, to break the bondages of despair and open the nectar of hope. To refresh your body as well as the mind. This mind will automatically rejoice with divine joy. This will be a sign that you are proceeding in the correct direction.
Food in the belly, enough sleep, collecting stuff, holding everything possible etc. sound very good. Think. If these didn’t give you any joy, was it all worthwhile?
I do not want you to stay on a pre-defined course, to make compromises in your life, or to keep drinking the poison of insults. I have become your soulmate to introduce you to yourself, to make you understand your own self. When both of us have intertwined souls, why don’t we both travel together on this spiritual path of divine elixir. This reminds me of a beautiful apt poem-
Do not waste a single tear
The ocean may want to borrow that one!
That the well never goes to thirsty, is a mere proverb, not immortal
And there is none here who cant offer a portal
Dress up every song
The Gods may adore that one
The mirror breaks, the figures seldom
Man loses everything but the worries random
Exalt each dropping tear
The soul may bathe in that one
Futile to adore the paths, only the sturdy legs
Even Providence will not raise the one, who has fallen in own dreg
Admire the love of each wave
Who knows to coast will take which one
Listen to the voice, to the promise which you have made to your own mind and your own soul. This is the voice of your Guru, it is the Brahmanaad of your life. Unite the voice of your mind with the divine Brahmanaad of your Guru. Ignite the fire within your own self, with the full flow of your energy. I am always within your mind and heart.

PS: The Raipur Amrit Mahotsava was magnificent. Divine blessings to all of you. My sole message is that Nikhil Voice should resound in every household, within each mind.
