Whatever Role is Made for Us, We Have to Play It

WHATVER-ROLE-IS-MADE-FOR-US-WE-HAVE-TO-PLAY-IT


At this time, history is being shaped and we all have a chance to play a character.  In this play, we should act as a positive character and not of a negative entity.  Make every effort, observe every action cautiously and awaken this though in your heart – whatever role is made for us, we have to play it.  We have to be the character in a new enigmatic story.  Meaning that we have to work to play a positive part.  Not even an iota of our flaws, vices, wickedness should become a hurdle on the path of devotion.  Any hurdle should not dare to write our role as a bad character.  So cautiously, observe your actions.

It should not happen like it happened in a graveyard in France.  There is a graveyard with memorials of those brave soldiers who had played their best role in the World War.  People remember them even today and pay them their tributes.  Though in the same graveyard, there is a place known as E-plot.  There rest those 96 soldiers who had turned traitors.  This place is known as "House of Shame."  Nobody likes going there.  They abhor the place.  Remember, this should never happen with us in our lives.  We should not be remembered with hatred.  We should make efforts to play a positive role in this enigmatic story of life.

Where does a meditator get the inspiration to be a good character?  We get a direct answer from Satguru Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji's own writings.  Maharaj Ji exhorted that every injury can be withstood with the guard of meditation.  The injury will slide away with the rising meditative strength.  To every problem, every dilemma, every vice, every hurdle, if there is a solution, it is one alone – meditation and meditation.  Meditation gives us strength to overcome struggle.  Meditation gives us strength to develop our virtues.  Meditation gives us strength for constructive works.  So, always immerse yourself in meditation according to Maharaj Ji's commandments.  It is the only way that we can overcome our flaws, vices, wickedness to acquire Maharaj Ji's grace to play the role he has assigned to us.

It is a known fact that our mind deters us from meditation, so we must go against the mind, revolt against its desires.  Guru's commandment demands sacrifice.  Be it to meditate, serve, or any other work.  This is why we should always be immersed in meditation.  You should embrace Guru's commandment by your heart.  The ones who bake themselves in the furnace of meditation, they will surely shine like pure gold.  The disciples who dive deep into meditation, they understand the real eternal relation of themselves with their Master.  The disciple who does intense meditation, his voyage from "I" to "Thou" commences the journey of discipleship to merge in the Master.  When a disciple walks steadily on this path, seeing his steadfastness, his emotions, Gurudev Shri Ashutosh Maharaj Ji himself says thus, "Remember!  I have not connected you all to my feet, rather, I have connected you all to my heart!".

Grow Through What You Go Through

GROW-THROUGH-WHAT-YOU-GO-THROUGH
When something good happens in your life, such as receiving a promotion or getting engaged, what do you do in those situations? Maybe you get excited, dance, and tell everyone the good news.

Cultivate the Virtue of Gratitude

Cultivate-the-virtue-of-gratitude
The poet Mirza Ghalib wrote, "I have a thousand desires, all worth dying for. Many of them have been fulfilled, yet they are not nearly enough." The substance expressed in these lines is not ordinary. It expresses the feelings of dissatisfaction and lack of contentment. "A thousand desires, all worth dying for." A human being has endless desires. H...

Connect to the Divine Name

CONNECT-TO-THE-DIVINE-NAME

CLEANSE THE MIRROR OF YOUR SELF

CLEANSE-THE-MIRROR-OF-YOURSELF
The Guru placed you in the practice of service (Sewa) to rid you of your arrogance as it is the only medicine to treat this disease. However, when you relate Sewa (service) with a sense of pride achievement, and a demonstration of your potential, then the result is that sewa also becomes a mere expression of gross work. Those services are supposed ...

SURRENDER TO THE DIVINE SCULPTOR

Surrender-to-the-divine-sculptor
The Guru is not the architect that collects raw stones to carve an idol out of it. He is that architect who uses these stones to create a replica of Himself. The Guru makes the disciple an expression of his own self, his "abhivyakti". In the Hindi dictionary, the word "abhivyakti" means to emerge and to enlighten. Every disciple yearns to become th...

One time, someone asked Shri Maharaj Ji, "Maharaj Ji, why is it that some people start on this path but are unable to sustain themselves on it?" His Holiness replied, "Those people do not bind themselves with rules and principles. They do not live disciplined lives. They do not walk this path while keeping their mind stable and peaceful. That ...

Failure is Not Having a Goal to Accomplish

Failure-is-not-having-a-goal-to-accomplis_20211205-182429_1
Today, it is our great fortune that a great mystic, a sculptor, has taken us in his expert hands. When a disciple starts to walk on the path of enlightenment, sometimes he becomes upset, tired, and puzzled. Do you know why? It is because we continuously think of our vices. By behaving this way, alas, what can we do for Maharaj Ji? We are unable to ...

Build-the-unbreakable-bond-of-true-love
In this context (of building one strong and unbreakable bond of true love to the Guru), Shri Maharaj Ji cites the beautiful example of the cuckoo. The cuckoo lays its eggs in the nest of the crow. Once the eggs hatch, the cuckoo sings in a sweet voice. The moment the chicks of the cuckoo hears those melodious notes, they fly to the cuckoo, who is t...

Drown In The Ocean of Love

DROWN-IN-THE-OCEAN-OF-LOVE
When it comes to offering our love, then, why is it so that our love for the Guru is not as pure or as clear? Let us close our eyes and glance into our hearts and honestly discern whether our True Guru "alone" is the Lord of that space. Are we really doing that prem-sadhna which is marked by purity? The truth is that we have established so many rel...

Gyan (knowledge) and Prem (love): Two sides of the same coin

Gyan-Knowledge-and-prem-love-Two-Sides-of-the-same-coin
It is true that most of us are sincerely trying to meditate in this time of trial. However, why are we still not able to completely connect with our Guru and establish a concrete bond with Him? The answer to this is that along with dhyan-sadhna (focused meditation), we must also do prem-sadhna (devotional meditation and love for the Guru). Doing on...

Can We Comprehend God in His Saguna (formed) State?

Can-We-Comprehend-God-in-His-Saguna-formed-State
We must remember that the Nirguna (formless state of God) is yet comprehensible, but not the Saguna (form) one! Saint Tulsidas writes in the Ram Charit Manas – "Nirguna roop sulabh ati saguna janne nahi koi" – that the formless state of God, which is the brilliant light, is easy to identify. There is no ambiguity in it at all. But when God descends...
