My Lord! You give me Inspiration
Inspiration is blind without creation
I call you, my Divine to make me your
Space of beauty and rhyme.
Create in me something never created before
And create so beautiful that never seen before!
I have just returned from my spiritual re-treat at Dakshineshwar ashram and since then I am pondering over the fledgling thoughts and diving deep to assess and gather by troughing all my spiritual experiences. I am aware of the fact that there is always a purpose of God, who gives me some exotic solitary moments and isolation from the noisy and clamorous crowd of the city. It was refreshing in the quiet sabbatical in the holy precinct there. The weather was very pleasant and the garden was blooming with beautiful seasonal flowers. Saw them all:- dahlias, roses, pansies, hollyhocks, sweetpeas, nasturtiums, carnation, honeysuckle, cockscomb and many more attractive varieties. Some were bell shaped, some dish-shaped and some like falling water droplets. Such a soothing environment compelled me to spend most of my time on the green lawns, under the huge shady trees or just walk around the garden on the brick path. The winter flowering shrubs and perennials had their element of beauty and they shared their perfume and beauty with all who passed by. The flowerpots were placed in various corners and places in various formations showing the craftsmanship of the designer making lovely landscapes. The songbird Koels were singing songs of joy and felicity while the sonorous Bulbuls were hopping in glee from one branch to another gathering seeds and visiting their mates. Butterflies of all colours and shapes were dancing gracefully around the flowering plants in synchronized patterns and the mynahs were singing their ragas in full throat. A place of perfect peace and beauty well worth visited!
Dear, I also did some introspection in the conducive atmosphere apart from drowning in the gifts of nature. I compared this visit to the ashram with the last one that I made about 3 years ago. I am wonderstruck to see that so much has happened in my life, particularly in the area of fitness and personal health. During my last visit, I was very feeble. I needed some one to accompany me and take care of me there. But this time around, I went alone and I was bouncing and beaming with boundless energy. There was no dearth of zest and mental agility and the outcome of the retreat was wonderful. Since I have come back home, I am craving to know what has caused this exceeding health benefit in me? What are the factors responsible for this mega reversal of physical trend? So I gave myself some time at home to find out the possible reasons for the same.
I have gladly arrived at the conclusion that in the years that have gone by, though wobbly, I had nurtured a vision, and have been creating a mental picture, a dream for myself. I have without a single day for that matter, told myself many times in a day that I have very good health.., I have tremendous mental and physical power., I am not sick., new cells are re-generating in my body., blood circulation is very good., I am a very happy person., I can do and complete all the jobs and tasks that come my way., I can exercise without any fatigue and I will one day be in pink of health., I will share and give happiness and abundant joy to others … ..and so on. Every time there was a picture of all this being created in my mind, I visualized myself as a very happy, healthy, strong and degeneration-free being. I instilled and fed very bright, vibrant and enthusiastic thoughts many times a day repeatedly and very vehemently. While I exercised, I envisioned a healthy gymmer in front of my eyes.
Today I have understood that I have actually achieved all this without my even being aware of it! It dawned on me when on the last day I visited and saw many things and places in the city, did so many things in a high activity packed day yet did not even get tired. Previously any change of weather and city would have a significant slackening effect on me. So I ask myself today what does this prove?
That there is so much power in our mind alone in the form of imagining and creating mental pictures!
Visualizing them, repeating them over and over again so that they get deeply engrained in the brain and so much so that with divine grace, one day they start manifesting in our lives. Take a pause now and think about what I have described to you, my dear one.
When we imagine something over a good amount of time, we arouse and collect the creative powers lying within us and store them in the mind little by little, brick by brick. The foundation of a new castle is laid by first wanting something, desiring something. Thoughts of creativity and visualization are the bricks by which we build our future. Faith in God and in oneself is the cement and repeated reinforcement is the mortar for bonding it. The structure is ready for us to see now!.
So whatever you want today, create it in the mind first, make mental pictures of it and everyday water your visions and dreams with love and passionate longing. One day it is bound to sprout and manifest in your life.
The power to create by mental and Spiritual visualization
In our mind lies the power to create.
In our mind lie the thoughts.
Our thoughts have power contained in them.
To make them dynamic, strong and come true
Invoke Divine Will and use Divine perceptions.
Throw and beam your thoughts in the Cosmic Universe.
Soon you will see Nature at your command.
See your ideas, visions and dreams
Shaping up, bit by bit, like the bricks in the castle.
Weave dreams around your aspirations, lofty ideas and soft fluffy wishes.
Create visuals in your mind like a design on a fabric.
Soon you shall see the vibrant colours and hues of the motifs coming up alive,
Like a beautiful garden full of blooming roses.
Inhale the intoxicating fragrance of the lovely roses floating in the misty air.
Drink the nectar of peace, serenity and fulfilling joy.
Design and create your own wonderful tomorrows
By the warps and wefts of creative visualization and mental imagery.
Keep on weaving your dreams till one day they manifest
Like a heavenly angel straight from the fairy tale!!!
