With love he invited all to dine

With trust he shared his own bread

With respect he treated them all

One of them gave him away and another of them disowned him not once, twice but thrice.

Hail Jesus, the One who healed, “Why thou not change their hearts?”

Hail Jesus, the One who performed miracles, “Why thou not save yourself”?

For even the Son of God has to pass his own tribulations.

When he could not escape how can we…

We accept it all O Lord, with grace and dignity.

Last two days were chaotic.’ Chaotic’ in my mind… superficially everything was silent. I chose to revise a lesson which I had learnt long ago. Maybe it was not understood well, so the system demanded up gradation. 🙂

 

I had realized long ago, never to fill voids. If you lack something, yearn for anything, accept it and work towards achieving it with all your soul. You are sure to get it but even if you do not, resign and be at peace with the situation and the reality GRACEFULLY.

 

When I could not clear my exams and did not achieve the success which I thought I deserved, I shifted my passion and focus towards another of my favourite ‘Food’. I ate in a day what my body did not need in a week and still my mind remained empty as before.. How this ‘foodomania’ affected me is a different story and I leave it for some other day.

That was the time I realized, “Why some take to drugs or else  leave everything and become a recluse”… They need that temporary high so much that they are willing to stake everything.

 

Coming back to my recent emptiness, I got into doing something which I never thought I could do again. It might be innocent for someone else but I have already paid a price for it. Still I chose to walk the same path albeit a few steps…

I sensed in good time that it could blow up badly. I have burnt my little finger but it will heal quicky and it is much better than a full boom boom 🙂

I thank my Guru who made me realize in time that my mind was misleading me. I became aware that feelings of heart cannot be substituted by pranks of the mind. Accept the truth and be in peace. I am peace and love and I need no external stimulus to descend it over me. Love and light to my teacher.

Eventually it is a settlement of another of my karmic account. With the blessings of my Guru, it has settled in the smallest possible denomination. 🙂

 

 

 

 

The divine book ‘Bhagwad Gita’ gives us a lot of emphasis on being a ‘Karmayogi’. Lord Krishna says to Arjun, “Do what you can, the best you can and then think about it the least you can”. It meant that taking action is our prerogative, result depend on other factors, which are many times beyond our control.

In my limited experience and exposure in life, I have met some people who I call as true ‘ Karmayogis’.

 

I have categorized them into three:

 

‘Enlightened Souls’ – These are the ones who have accumulated immense knowledge from their previous experiences or may be previous life times. Hence they are focused on their karma rather than the outcome. They are not bothered much about people’s opinion and the worldly standards. Their whole being radiates of happiness.

 

‘Contented Souls’- These are the ones who I terms as, ‘born satisfied’. Their brain waves are not tuned to the frequencies of worry, negative thinking and retrospection. They are in a permanent state of bliss and hence their life itself is a blessing.

 

‘Karmayogi by Default’- These are the souls who have to undergo a lot of karmic thrashing to understand the lesson that, “Nothing is in my hands”.

I for one fall into this category. Very early in life I realized that good voice does not mean that you get to become the solo singer. It can be a direct outcome of how good you are in the books of your music teacher.

Being a good and sincere employee does not mean that you are well paid. It can also depend on your negotiating skills versus negotiating skills of your employer.

Being passionately in love with someone cannot guarantee that you will be loved back with the same intensity. It can depend on the moods and fancies of the person in question.

Being nice to people around you does not ensure that they will not bitch about you. It is a reflection of their own sanskars.

Etc, etc, etc ………………….

  • Do I sound pessimist?:-( Do I sound cynical?

 

No I am not. The truth is, sooner you see the larger picture the better it is.

Some things need not be understood they just need to be felt.

When you feel, then only you realize and when you realize you are there, almost there.

Life is how you take it. 🙂
