Dealing with Inertia – by Guruji Krishnananda
There is a Life-force in and around us everywhere on earth. It is like a special gift. Along with this Life-force, there is another, almost opposing, force called Inertia. Again, Inertia is in us and everywhere as well.
Inertia is not a negative force, it is a kind of passive force. It does not cause any damage or anything else like that but it somehow discourages life. Perhaps, God introduced Inertia to test us.
I received an email which read – ‘I have lot of time, I have all facilities, but I cannot meditate.’ People say help me, I don’t know how to help with their inertia. Nobody can help except the individuals themselves. When dealing with Inertia, let us not blame ourselves entirely and blame Inertia, just a little.
We have to get over this Inertia. How? By making efforts. We may fail but we have to make more efforts every time. There is no other way. If you want to achieve something you have to make efforts. Simply sitting, intending, or dreaming does not help. We have to not only make up our mind but also make efforts using our will power. Unless we make efforts we cannot come up in life.
Sometimes we have to deal with the collective global Inertia, maybe because of the oneness. Each one of us is a part of the collective human consciousness. We have our individual share of Inertia. Here we have to understand a lot. Individual Inertia itself will make us sleep and not meditate. People discontinue Meditations for months; for years there will be a disconnect, even a total disconnect. But when we are aware of these factors, we must fight Inertia, get rid of it through our endeavours.
When we have to deal with the global Inertia, imagine what happens. Even here and everywhere, every time, Light helps. Think of the Light. Take help from Light. Try to bring in Light, suddenly there will be a kind of freshness in us. Suddenly this cloud of Inertia is removed and we will be filled with Life-force and enthusiasm.
