Listen to the voice of your soul-II

As the prevailing hindrances and hitches are wearing off, I am much more relaxed and rejuvenated and therefore I could meditate once again on a Sunday evening leisurely.

The joy of meditation is unknown to people. Just a few moments of being one with the existing illuminating Spirit is all that is required to refine my inner sensibilities and find overflowing stream of Ananda or blissful happiness. The ecstasy of God-given Joy is my true wealth. The limitless knowledge that is unfolded in divine moments is the most valuable thing I possess today……

Thinking of all this I was dipping and slipping further more in the infinite celestial world without any inkling that all along there was a silent spectator who was listening to my extremely feeble thoughts floating in the upper cerebral space. Some moments of extreme silence was experienced which made me understand the importance of shunya or void that is so significant in Pranayam. I am talking of the empty space or void that one gets to observe between one inhalation and one exhalation. It is a moment of silence, peace; a moment of thoughtlessness, a moment of egolessness. It is a moment of graciousness. It is a state of Brahma, a state of nivrati or nirvana. It is during complete silence of one’s mind that God is reached I recognize today. And out of such silence came this unfaltering and unswerving golden voice of God with a ray like streak of glowing white light entering the right side of my upper head.

“First of all bow down reverentially to all your divine Gurus and touch their feet in abstract form in obeisance and gratefulness. They have done for you what nobody ever does for any other human. You were completely devastated and ruined once. They have revived, up surged and levitated you to dazzling spiritual heights. In spite of recurring mental and physical obstacles, you made speedy developments because the Gurus were empowering you silently to overcome all the hurdles on your path. The more you wanted to rise, the more power they supplied you. Gurus help only those who have total faith and endless trust in them. In the entire course of spiritual journey, there are many phases of ebbs and flows because of one’s karmic story, but the Guru is strong and resilient enough to sail you through all along until the day when you arrive safely at the shore. Those who doubt and do not feel or know the hidden godly powers of the Sadguru will not be able to traverse far. So hold on to the mast of the sailing boat even during the rough weather and feel the power of God inherent in the Divine Gurus.

There are two contradictory forces around us. One is the Light of God residing inside and the other is its conflicting force which we can name as Mayic or Asuric force in the form of fear, self-doubt, worry, panic and other low feelings and thoughts coming from the energy-field created outside by the masses. These two forces are in contradiction to each other and opposite in direction thus there is always a conflict between them. This force weakens your Spirit. It also diminishes your concentration and attention span and should be eliminated. Not a vestige of such depleting force should remain anywhere inside you.

Those of you who wish to increase your spiritual powers must understand its importance and during your meditation times, you must submit all the weaknesses to the deputed Gurus. Your power lies in your Spirit and those of you who wish to walk up to end point must expel all the unwanted thoughts in order to make the mind extra ordinarily strong. A strong and robust mind shall sustain and put up with all the worldly and spiritual pursuits. The power to overcome diseases-mental and physical both, to overcome life’s obstacles and self-created mental blockades depends on the quality of the mind one possesses. A strong and bright mind shall withstand all the initial tests taken by the Guru to help you to qualify and deserve Self realizations and Atma Bodh- realization of one’s own real identity.

Therefore, remove all the mental barriers and surrender to God in the form of Guru and enter the kingdom of serene Divine world.”

 Conclusion

  • You are what you think.
  • You will become what you will think.
  • Remove all the depleting thoughts buried deeply inside your mind and trust in God and his entrusted dispensed Gurus.

    It seems amazing to me this morning that right here in my sacred body lies the monkey mind which keeps running the entire day/night and on the other hand, God lies hidden in me somewhere.So it’s like I am a part of both duality and heaven housed in this one body. It will be exciting to see how this human called shahid will be re-connected to God.

    Pyare Godji jo meray aandhar hai……..aab tho jagoo 🙂

    Love this sentence “Remove all the mental barriers and surrender to God in the form of Guru and enter the kingdom of serene Divine world.”

    THANK YOU God, Shri Babaji, Shri Nityananda, Shri Shaligram swami and all others who provided the finance and set up everything beautifully for my spiritual pilgrimage. Very
    GRATEFUL to all of you ❤

      Dear Paripurna, I see that you have read this post early in the morning, that is the best time to absorb such beautiful realizations straight from God. They have so much power to transform somebody.
      Repeat these lines in various ways in the day. Re-read and then recall again and again mentally. Thoughts on Brahma are very light in weight. They sit with great difficulty and they may fly out without your knowledge. So reinforce these thoughts many, many thoughts even in meditation. Call it creative visualization or reaffirmation but do as i say.

      Now I am very eager to translate the couplet or doha (of Kabir I think, please correct me, name the author) for those who cannot read or understand the beautiful doha which is filled with so much devotion and love for a disciple’s Guru. This is how it goes-

      The greatness of a Satguru is limitless, limitless are his acts of kindness and benediction over me,
      For he has opened my eyes to see the limitless, he has given me limiltless eyes to see the eternal. oh! the shower of eternity!

      Thanks Paripurna.
      Ma

    Really worth putting in action in one’s life:

    Dear mom, I love this couplet you have shared in the comments earlier:

    acts of kindness and benediction over me,

    • spiritinlife says:

      How lovely Shahid, you are recalling all my most favourite personal moments which I had in my journey. Such overflowing currents of gratitude come only when we understand how much our Sadguru does for us that too unconditionally and so quietly to liberate us of unceasing suffering and miseries!
      Mom.

    Ma,
    I was just contemplating on what you have mentioned in one of the response..

    { “Thoughts on Brahma are very light in weight. They sit with great difficulty and they may fly out without your knowledge. ”

    So reinforce these thoughts many, many thoughts even in meditation. Call it creative visualization or reaffirmation but do as I say.}

    So true Ma..I keep trying and it keep goes away..

    humble pranam to sri babaji , ma & all gurus.

  10. Pranaam Ma,

    You know from the afternoon I am hearing a silent whisper from inside, as if He is saying that;
    “in between the one cycle and your inhalation and exhalation, there is a stop, there is a void space, there is a halt, and you can feel me there in fact”

    Then I opened the blog randomly and the first post I have opened, its having your golden words;

    “Some moments of extreme silence was experienced which made me understand the importance of shunya or void that is so significant in Pranayam. I am talking of the empty space or void that one gets to observe between one inhalation and one exhalation. It is a moment of silence, peace; a moment of thoughtlessness, a moment of egolessness. It is a moment of graciousness. It is a state of Brahma, a state of nivrati or nirvana. It is during complete silence of one’s mind that God is reached “

    How amazing is the way of God to communicate!!
    And how kind you are Ma!

    Thanks a lot for the message and lesson in a different and unique way Ma 🙂 I have imbibed it and I started to implement the same.
    .
    Lots love and gratitude to God, Babaji, You and all our sweet Masters _/\_

    • spiritinlife says:

      Dear Nirav, the more you silence your mind, the more you will understand the concept of nivrati or shunya, a state of breathlessness. Our inner maya, when slowly rubbed and erazed makes way and the void is approached. A state of thoughtlessness is achieved when our ego diminishes and finishes and the base of Brahma or the Atman is touched. As Brahma is existing in silence, we experience a state of nothingness during such times.
      Note one more important thing here Nirav, if one makes a strong postive affirmation or sankalpa during such times, it is sure to manifest since we are in direct contact with Brahma itself.Catch such great moments.
      After your regular work, get back to such special moments of shunya so that you live in those precious times more often and remember Brahma again ad again.
      God bless you.
      Ma

      • Pranaam Ma and thank you so much for the illuminating explanation!
        “Note one more important thing here Nirav, if one makes a strong postive affirmation or sankalpa during such times, it is sure to manifest since we are in direct contact with Brahma itself.Catch such great moments.
        After your regular work, get back to such special moments of shunya so that you live in those precious times more often and remember Brahma again ans again”
        I never knew it Ma!!
        Trying to grasp each and every word.

        lots of love and gratitude,
        Nirav

    Pranaam Maa. Read this posting again today.

    Loved the following lines

    Thank you Babaji,Maa and others divine masters. I am ever GRATEFUL to all of you.

    With lots of Gratitude

    • spiritinlife says:

      Pranam dear Kiran, just the devout and earnest understand what you have mentioned here. All the work is done silently by God through the chosen sacred Masters; the devotee only has to pray for grace and receive it with love and gratefulness. May God show you more and more of His presence in times of rough waters so that your faith in God is infallible.
      Ma.

    “Those of you who wish to increase your spiritual powers must understand its importance and during your meditation times, you must submit all the weaknesses to the deputed Gurus”

  13. Pranaam dearest Maa,

    I humbly bow down to our Holiest Gurus and You.

    I realise now that after this much effort, even then the Gurus are doing the main work for me and other sincere disciples. An ordinary disciple like me may have only contributed a total of 1% in my own inner journey and it is the Power and Grace of the Gurus and Maa, that is actually helping me throughout, all in humility, and silence. Then, what is mine and what have I ever done!

    Points I should practice till my Gurus assure me of safety:

    – You must submit all the weaknesses to the deputed Gurus.

    – Your power lies in your Spirit and those of you who wish to walk up to end point must expel all the unwanted thoughts in order to make the mind extra ordinarily strong.

    – Remove all the mental barriers and surrender to God in the form of Guru. Not a vestige of such depleting force should remain anywhere inside you.

    “Thank you” seems to be too from this moment onwards.

    With unending love, trust, surrender and faith in our Gurus and Mas,
    Pranaam.
