As one can see these days there are quite a few new readers from all over the globe who have made their presence felt on this weblog by giving their regular feedback recently and are showing keen interest in self awakening. One of you has even requested me that I attach more pictures to drive home a point. Sure, I will do that as long as I have an appropriate photo for that purpose.
I thank all of you heartily before we begin to discuss the central point today. Your overwhelming positive response and expectations make me raise my bar of excellence in every arena- be it making regular entries of useful content, better explanation of spiritual phenomenon and its underlying spiritual principles along with bridging the gap by cementing a bond between us for mutual growth and spiritual excellence.
And this blog initiated by none other than His Holiness Shri Mahavatar Babaji is also fulfilling the purpose of laying the foundation for future generations for road mapping. Therefore this post is once again an offering at his sacred feet and is a ‘prasad’ or blessing for all his disciples and devotees alike all over the world, wherever they may be.
May we all cherish divine love and friendship and may we all be a helping hand to each other on our voyage towards knowing God within ourselves. May the flame of illumination always glow in our sacred hearts and may we for all time offer blossoms at the holy feet of our Divine Lord and all the sacred gurus.
The aim to write this chain of eight posts is to in some way answer your budding questions and also furnish further details on topics with which many of you are already familiar with in this field.
This segment is now divided into two parts as you will see. Topics related to Consciousness and Super Consciousness are listed in section I while the last eight posts for the new as well as old readers are added in section II. They are related to mixed topics usually pertaining to an upcoming and struggling aspirant and also for those who have their feet firm now on this path.
If you recall in my last post I had mentioned to you about my sublime experience of rendezvous with complete silence during meditation on one blessed day not long past . Since then, I tried a few times to relive those splendid moments when I could get in direct touch with the omni present. Even the flashes of those exclusive times left me recharged and have given me so many insights without which I cannot go on writing relentlessly. Once more, this post has emerged out of those potentially dynamic spiritual moments and we all shall now bathe and baptasize ourselves in that glory and immortal beauty of God.
Just a night before the previous one, when I wrapped up my day accomplishing quite a bit, I was still hazy about the content of the upcoming post due today. But leaving that to God and being assured in myself that let the right time come, I will be given directive about the content of the subject, I was feeling at ease and serene. Thinking so, I put my head on the white pillow with placidity and began to say my prayer as an offering for the day’s blessings. My heart welled up with emotions when I closed my eyes and remembered the Lord residing within me as I did mental chanting of His holy name-
Hey Prabho, Hey Eeshwar; Hey Prabho, Hey Eeshwar ; Hey Prabho, Hey Eeshwar ……. (synonyms of God)
No sooner did I repeat His name that I saw a drop of gleaming Light emerging from the higher space and then hitting me at the place between my eyebrows.
The Light was fairly square in shape and sparkling rays were emerging out of this drop of Light in outer direction as my eyes could see them distinctly. I promptly absorbed all the rays as I now understand every shred, every speck, every miniscule part of it is so forceful and is a gift from God and should be humbly accepted as a ‘prasad.’
I was sliding into absolute tranquility when God’s benevolent words began to trickle in like little drops of golden light over me…
“Why is peace so difficult for man to achieve?” In a continuous flow of words, quickly came in the answer too.
“Because he has never tried to find it, since man is ignorant about it.
And why is he ignorant?
Because he does not know that there exists something so benign, so propitious, so auspicious as peace. And that peace should be attained at all costs the way we know that material prosperity, success and fame should be sought after. We do not know peace because we have long forgotten it. We do not yet know where to look for that peace.
And how to attain that peace?
By purifying yourself of all the inner impurities, being grateful to God and others, being unselfish in all your goals and doing charitable and kind acts. Learn to meditate to calm the disturbed and troubled mind”
Regarding me He said, “You have all your life searched for love and peace and have gone for it undauntingly, so you are an appropriate person to tell others about it. Those who seek it, one day find it if they are centered and one pointed in their goal. Man has created a putrefied mind in today’s world and he is leading an inharmonious, immoral and senseless life. Ask them to alter their present life. Who can help you if you help yourself not! To get a few moment’s pleasures, they are ready to sacrifice their whole day, all energy and their age. Isn’t it ironical that even after dedicating all the years and all their physical and mental energies, one is not at peace with oneself? There is not a moment’s peace in them.
Why is it so?
Because these days people don’t look within, their sight is reaching outwards. The more you seek inside, the more peaceful you shall become. Dive deep inside, stop the turbulence, stop the constant bickering of your mind.
Go further inside and your mind will come to a complete rest. Progressively, once the mind is quiet, you will find peace, absolute peace. The shadows of restless thoughts, the churning of worldly desires must end as peace awaits you. Go for it, run after everlasting peace of mind. Live for lasting peace and yearn for spreading peace wherever you go. You are the children of God. God is love, God is peace. You are love. You are peace. Live in peace now and forever.”
Like the rain drops falling on my windows these days, I admired those drops of golden words falling over me that night as I lay warm in my bed on a rainy night on 8th July. Each drop of golden word was packed with life, unlimited energy and limitless joy and bliss. You too devour these words, introspect and get illumined with the shimmery drops of golden Light!!!!
