Inner Strength within everyone is immense and unlimited but its manifestation outside is limited. Water in the ocean is unlimited but water in the jug, jar, cup and glass is limited. Clay mouse is different in size and shape from clay elephant but once they are melted, it is all clay.
It is a paradox to say, “Defeat but win because we enjoy victory when we vanquish our opponents. Remember the king Ashoka the Great, after defeating the enemy in the battle of kalinga in which thousands were killed, did not have any feeling of victory but feeling of remorse and was disheartened and dejected so much so that he abandoned the idea of extending his territory and engaging in any more battles.
“Thou shall earn thy livelihood by the sweat of thy brow” was the curse on Adam. Every one suffering from stress and strain is feeling the heat of the curse. The manifold demands of life and the claims on physical and mental powers are likely to keep one all the time strained and stressed.
Thought is the vital force behind our actions. Any action is determined as good or bad with the thought behind it. A knife in doctor’s hand is entirely different from the knife in murderer’s hand. Swami Ji says, “We must watch our thoughts. Be a witness to your thoughts.
In this evanescent world, immortality is found nowhere. A compound has to be disintegrated sooner or later. Search was undertaken on the spiritual plane to find out the Reality behind the apparent, the infinite behind the finite and the Immortal Self behind the ego, the little self.
The flame of fire always goes up. Man must strive to attain his ideal of selfless service to humanity or Self-realization or his own divinity – Each soul is potentially divine. Each one is to choose his own ideal and work hard for it. Even if you don’t attain it, struggle is well worth it. If you aim at sky, you shoot higher than a tree.
That joy is indescribable, which one gets from the realization of oneness with the ultimate reality underlying all the dualities of the world. You may derive indescribable joy in an act of kindness if you have a link with your own Real Self. When you spread rays of hope in the hearts of the poor and forsaken, kindle courage in the hearts of the despondent and light a new strength in the heart of a forlorn and ship-wrecked brother, the joy you get from that is indescribable if you become one with the underlying reality of all the beings.
The dreadful fear of facing misery or hardship at one time or another sends the tremors of unpleasant sensation in one’s body. None wishes to think of any hardship or having a long face. Everyone wishes to have a good time and be cheerful. The reason for that is the ever lasting BLISS which is the true nature of man. That BLISS lies within and not without and does not depend upon any external environment.
Complete awareness comprises of sub-consciousness, consciousness and super-consciousness. We all are conscious of our friends, our relatives and our surroundings but we are not aware of ourselves. Consciousness is only on the surface and a small part of awareness. Below this surface of consciousness is sub-consciousness and beyond is super-consciousness.
Anyone who has faced impoverishment at one time or another knows how expensive it is to be poor. Man’s basic needs are food, clothing and shelter. There are many on this planet who are deprived of these basic needs and alas! Their number is increasing day by day. They are virtually living in a hell.
