Manifesting Consciously

Manifesting Consciously
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

We all are concerned about our Spiritual progress. The Rishis (Light Masters) want all of you to rise to their level. They are concerned about your Spiritual progress.

They observe and say that though we are making progress, it is very slow and it is not enough.

How can we grow faster?

Manifest Love The Rishis say, “We are not consciously manifesting love.”

We are not consciously manifesting all that we experience in our Meditation. When we meditate, we experience peace, stillness, bliss and love; we experience the Divine. This is the first part of our Sadhana (Spiritual effort).

The second and the most important part of Sadhana is to manifest all this in our living. Only when we manifest them we get tuned to the Divine.

When we are in tune with the Divine we live in harmony with the world; we do not make mistakes and we will always be positive. We remain in a heightened state all the time.

Spiritual pursuit is not one hour of daily meditation. It is manifesting the Divine 24 hours a day.

In the beginning this may seem very difficult because we get involved in the business of life.

When you begin the day, fill yourself with Love. Throughout the day, be conscious of the Love in you and it will keep flowing out from you even when you are working. Whenever you get a break from work, think of the love flowing from within.

Without manifesting the Divine transformation cannot occur.

Religion and Spirituality

Religion and Spirituality
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

Spirituality is different from religion.

Spirituality is the essence of all religions. All religions teach love, compassion, forgiveness and accommodation. The essence of all these things is Spirituality.

All those who understand spirituality in this way will get connected at a deeper level. They become one at the level of their core. This Oneness is very important now.

Oneness should be the religion of the future. We all have to understand oneness, become aware of it and experience it, if possible, all the time.

Oneness gives us strength, direction and happiness. We have to experience oneness, not only with the Divine, but also amongst ourselves, the people on this earth. Experiencing oneness leads to the experience of Samadhi because, in oneness we expand.

It is this Oneness that will take us into the Light Age. When we experience oneness, the Light Age takes birth in us.

The Light Age does not begin somewhere outside. It must begin within each one of us.

What will save our world?

What will save our world?
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

“Who or what will save the world?” Someone asked this very interesting question.

Divine Love The one-word answer to this question is, Love. It is love that saves the world.

What is the source of this love?

Us. It has to come from us. So, it is WE who can save the world. Of course, God helps when we manifest love. But the main players are us, the citizens of this world.

Incidentally, I saw in the newspaper, a photo of a blind man struggling to open a tap to drink water. Also in the photo was a monkey helping the blind man open the tap!

That was very touching. There is so much of love in the Universe. If we all could have the love that the monkey had, that would be enough. There will be absolutely no destruction and no suffering on this earth.

Sadly, we do not carry such love. Instead, we generally carry a lot of non-love, which is why we attract so much of pain. People’s collective non-love can cause great destruction.

Some individuals do carry a lot of love but that is not enough to balance all the non-love on this earth. If there were enough love in this world, there would be no wars, no terrorism and no need for the military.

That is the challenge; to carry love always and to consciously manifest love in every thought, in every emotion and in every act. In addition to this, we must hunt for every trace of non-love within us and remove it. If we try it, we realise that it is not very difficult.

Being spiritual is not about having powers. It is being good, honest and manifesting genuine love for the fellow human being and nature.

The Universe is waiting for us to return to our original state of goodness. Such goodness will save the world.

A Touching Experience

A Touching Experience
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

A lady took a taxi to come to Taponagara. The taxi driver told her that the place is very far and asked for quite a large amount of money. After travelling a short distance, she realised that the place was quite nearby, and that the taxi driver had taken her for a ‘ride’.

She told him that he was overcharging her, but he did not relent. They had an argument and he was very tough with her. She then told him in a very gentle way, “What you are doing is not good. If you had asked for more money, I would have given it to you with great love.”

When she arrived, she paid him what he had asked for, and the taxi went away.

After about 30 minutes, the taxi driver came back and returned the excess money he had charged. Overwhelmed, she thanked him and asked him to keep the money. He said, “How can I take it?” and left.

What made him do this?

We must understand that the Divine Essence is in everyone, which we call Conscience. This Divine Essence in him got stirred somehow.

Conscience works in everyone but most people suppress it. Conscience always works and shows us the right way but most don’t listen to it maybe because of the stress of living in this competitive world.

The taxi driver’s conscience must have been telling him right from the beginning that what he was doing was wrong. He was a good man and he finally responded to it.

We usually presume that people are bad; we should not do it. Everyone is good at the core. They only need to listen to their conscience and follow it.

Why Should We Meditate?

Why Should We Meditate
(Based on the teachings of Guruji Krishnananda)

A student on the Spiritual Path asked me, “Why should we meditate?”

People take up Meditations for different reasons to begin with. They take up Meditations usually to find solutions to their various problems—health issues, financial difficulties, problems with relationships, to overcome stress, to find peace and so on.

Meditation

Meditation

After they spend some time meditating, they realise that there is a greater purpose in taking up Spiritual Practice. They become aware of higher Truths, higher realities, and their problems either get resolved or they begin to look less important or trivial.

As they spend more time in their Sadhana, their goal shifts from solving their problems to achieving higher Spiritual goals.

Their goal keeps expanding, and ultimately, they set their goal on attaining freedom—to free themselves from all bondages and to become Light, and go back to their Source.

Our Source is Light. Our Source is God. Our ultimate goal is to go back to Him and become Him.

Until we reach the highest goal, Meditations help us live this life sensibly, peacefully and fully.

Living this life in this moment properly is most important. If we live properly in the present, the future is taken care of automatically.

So, we take up Meditations for many reasons in the beginning, and ultimately, to become Light.
