Meri Aadat

Posted on 12 September 2012 by Meena-Om

My Habit

I have the habit of making proper lessons of everything I learn feel and experience from life. Then I go on adding to these lessons whenever I find any other matter or realise something myself. So I have my own library of my own written lessons on many facets of life which is in my mind for my own reference. Only I know the index number and how to operate it and to take out the right context at right time with my DHYAN.

Sometimes I feel I am an extinct species here in this modern age, because nobody believes that such a person exists in this materialistic world. Nobody can know my psyche in a few days. They wonder at my so many channels. The more they want to know about me  the more they get confused. I am always a mystery to them. But I am not confused about myself. I am clear like crystal only others have to be crystal clear and pure and STILL TO SEE ME FOR SEEING THE REFLECTIONS OF THEIR OWN TRUTH TRUTH OF HUMAN POTENTIAL

‘Satya ke drishti samdrishti jo sabb jaane dekhe boojhe samaje sabka satya’

This is truth

Compassion

Posted on 07 September 2012 by Meena-Om

Show compassion towards all living beings, we often hear people say, but compassion is not something to be shown, it is something to be ignited. One is not born with compassion. What one is born with is love, humility, among other emotions. When a small child asks his mother, “Mama can I go out to play?” He shows humility, he is born with. When you ask your neighbours, ‘Have you eaten?’ ‘Can I get you something?’ ‘Are you comfortable?’ you are showing concern for them. When you politely offer your seat to a pregnant woman or an elderly person on the train – you are showing consideration and reverence for them. Feelings of concern, consideration and reverence all are aspects of humility. It is this, which in turn blossoms into true compassion.

Daya, mamta and namrata lead to karuna. These words have no proper equivalent in English. Although Karuna is often translated into English as compassion, it is more than that. Karuna comes from humility and concern and consideration for others. Only when you are humble towards others, understand them, appreciate them, are reverential towards them that you can be truly compassionate towards them.

Humility is like the basic emotion of love, anger. Instead of nurturing this emotion of humility, we kill it with our ego and pride. The surrounding environment too takes its toll. So when you suppress the basic feeling of humility since childhood, from where will karuna or compassion sprout? We can only develop things seeds of which are already within us.

Compassion is not something that needs to be shown to others, instead, it needs to be ignited in us. One can ignite compassion by being purely humble inside. Otherwise, one’s compassion is only a game of show of social service and it only boosts one’s ego – “I am full of compassion for others”, “I help others”, “I am such a great philanthropist. I always give to the poor and needy.” All such thoughts will arise only to strengthen the ego. Without true inner humility, one’s compassion is not true compassion. Compassion flows from a person who is truly humble — who has concern, consideration and reverence for all things around. Compassion will be ignited when this happens.

How gunas play, is not in your hand!

How gunas play, is not in your hand!

Posted on 06 September 2012 by Meena-Om

Playing the gunas, their surfacing or their going away is not in your hands. You imbibe gunas from the mother’s womb too when you are in the embryo form by way of  your mother’s thoughts, you don’t know what gunas you have, and where you acquired them or when they will surface. Same goes for karms. You don’t know what you have brought along from earlier births, which you created here and when. Past life therapies etc can be of no help. Knowing the details about your karms etc won’t be of much help as you will still have to live those gunas. You will have to play them. You will have to cut those karms by yourself. By knowing more about your karms or your gunas through past life therapies etc you will only start a new karmic cycle as the information will get stored in your subconscious mind. This will create another cycle of thoughts. And knowing that the events were destined to happen, you could become karmheen—complacent too. If people say that your bad karms will go away if you performed certain austerities, daan or punya…then you start a barter system. It is just mind calculation.

The Supreme brings forth in your life only those situations which will help you cut your karms. He gives you that family, those friends, and situations which are meant to cut your karms and you get busy avoiding these, busy abusing the very things which are supposed to help you cut your karms.

It is also so effortless. Whatever comes in front of you – people, animals, situations, weather… is all meant to cut your karms, the weather…elements…all come to give you something. Why do we analyse, criticize, avoid them. The sooner you deal with these, go through these, the better. It is so simple. Karm hi karm ko kateh hain. Gurus and swamis have made a business out of it –offering you advice on how to avoid your karm — ‘do this and your problems will go away!’ Know that karm will be cut by karm alone. And the karm which you have got effortlessly, it is coming in front of you, be in gratitude. Unknowingly it will cut the karm which you don’t even know about. And why you want to know about your earlier karms etc?  By knowing all that, you create another karm cycle, because now this thing has also entered your subconscious mind, which is not the truth. Who has seen your past birth! You store such information in your subconscious mind, and it will create one more cycle.

People have made their life so complicated, that nothing can eradicate their complexities whole and complete. But pranam is in gratitude that all things are pointing to one thing – that there is something more to know (not learning, information or acquired knowledge) through their own sensitivities which have been numbed by pathies and so called techniques and  spoon feeding of acquired knowledge (mind games). It is all so simple!

Human to human conduct

Human to human conduct

Posted on 05 September 2012 by Meena-Om

You just to have to keep a watch on where you stand on the human scale. There is no way you can know where you are on the spiritual scale, or how close you are to divinity, or how much baggage you are carrying in your subconscious mind. You can only know where you stand on the human scale. Intelligence has to be used for this -to keep a watch where you fall off the pedestal of humanity. In the present moment you can see when and where you were rude to someone, where you did not treat the other person like a human being. No need to go into details…only keep watch on your human to human conduct. There is only one criteria to measure this – do unto others what you want others to do to you. It is so simple. Behave with others like you want others to behave with you…with warmth, with love, care. If you want that if you have made a mistake, others should tell you politely, not keep it to themselves…you too must do that too. This is something your mind can do; this is in your hands. You have control on this.

Witness your gunas, don’t suppress them

Witness your gunas, don’t suppress them

Posted on 04 September 2012 by Meena-Om

Let the gunas or your attributes surface. The gunas will go away, will leave you, only once you have played them. If you suppress them with some technique, they will surface to play later. Surface they must. Before you die, that guna will surely surface, such is the tuning. So let the feeling of jealously, envy in you surface. Let the gunas surface…witness them, it is happening.  ‘It is in me…but this has surfaced to go away, to leave me,’ put that thought. Also when you are truthful, you know there are certain gunas in you, it is fine. Nothing is bad, or wrong, but hiding it or hypocrisy certainly is wrong. But when you realise that you still have certain undesirable qualities in you and the Supreme starts helping you to come out of them…He starts to fulfill your little desires and wishes. Life then starts becoming effortless for you.
