Helping people in Corona time

lending-tracker-fullsize-istock-1213355637Helping does not always involve donation or giving to beggar. in this Corona time, due to lock down small businesses and the hawker, daily wager people impact tremendously compare to big businesses.

How we as individual person can help them at least i do for my satisfaction

1- Always buy from hawker or small ones. it does not mean you will get all things or best of all. but you will not feel any difference like buy fruits and vegetables from different hawker rather than online. obviously if you are not able to find what you are looking you are free to do so 🙂

2- do not bargain for small amount until they are taking too much for no reason

3- sometimes you can buy stuff and donate or give to someone else – especially from those hawkers who sell small gifts items

4- prefer to give their necessity things( if you can) rather than giving money to avoid fraud.

5- helping our maids in all possible ways

6- taking help from daily workers( maids, cleaning etc) rather than doing things by ourselves for some times in corona and even after corona to help them get started

continuity

it is part of the conversation between Sri Ramkrishna and Narendra & other disciple

context: when Narendra ( Vivekananda father died) they were discussing regarding the GOD grace

quoting from Book : The Gospel of Sri Ramkrishna:

Narendra: i am now studying the views of the atheists

Master(Sri RamKrishna): There are two doctrines- one about the existence of GOD, and other about His non-existence, why don’t you accept the first

Surendra: “GOD is just. he must look after his devotees”

Master: “It is said in the scripture that only those who have been charitable in their former births get money in this life. but to tell you the truth, this world is GOD’s maya. and there are many confusing things in this realm of maya. one can not comprehend them

“GOD has revealed to me that only the paramatman, whom the Vedas describe as the pure soul, is immutable, like mount Sumeru, unattached , and beyond pain and pleasure. there is much confusion in this world of his maya. one can by no means say that ‘this’ will come after ‘that’ or ‘this’ will produce ‘that’ “

Your karma is yours

Your karma is yours

If it is only one life then why not everyone is on the same page, why not everyone is enjoying the same life. Why do some people suffer so much and some people enjoy being like a king?

I heard a lot of people says that it’s your karma which affects you but what about those who are doing good karma in this life but still suffering , possible answer is your life is not just one life it also carries past life karma with you in this life,  but is it fair, that you are suffering because of karma, which you have done in the past,which even you don’t remember at all?

Sometimes I wonder why there is so much suffering? If we are born through GOD wish, if everything is supreme wish then every karma should also belong to that supreme wish. it  makes us more confused. Reality is very different. We are born here to learn very specific things but we have to follow the right path. We are free to make our own choices, that’s how we carry our own karma . when we lead the wrong path it increases our time span to be here. So how we know what is working for us what is not, people say what your heart says is worth of millions dollars but best way what I found is, do meditation, it’s not what you thought initially sitting in a proper position and chanting some specific mantras, no not at all, meditation can be done on every task even on eating, walking etc..

Situation can be supreme wish but your actions can’t be, it is always you who perform every task on given situation and bring karma into your life by attachment and feeling of doer

It is also true that every soul is destined to meet the supreme self, but some will take countless births and some very few. At least we can reduce this cycle by doing good karma alone.

Simple smile – karoli baba

It is known truth that you can not lie to yourself, when we say yourself it means self which is residing in you as observers of everything and indestructible, which is Truth by itself.  you can lie to others but never to yourself.

It is always better, tell the truth at least those who are going with you for your whole life. It is what Baba always said to everyone.

Love – Serve – Remember

Simple to simplest

you use bigger thorn  to remove smaller thorn and at  last you must throw both of them. same thing with knowledge, if it is becoming hindrance for your spiritual growth then you must throw it back and be free.

no body can give anything if your cup is full 🙂

Guru Purnima – Thought

Do not draw your conclusion on the basis of only middle point, for conclusion it is mandatory to know first and last point of the line also 🙂

 

 

 

How to How

In Today’s time where everything is so fast and messed up, very few have time to even think where and what they are doing, even lesser has the ways to adopt it. Decision which are made on incomplete information or false facts will always lead to disaster. You have to develop your mental ability in such a way that you can see situation as it is rather than putting your perspective.

No doubt we are leading the highly materialistic way of life, nothing wrong in it as long as this approach isn’t making us crazy. still there are some souls which are struggling to make a way out of it, despite number is less, as per spiritual law nature always support and help these kind of souls. everything has positive and negative sides depending on who is using and how.

1- always check your thought on first place, it is source of your action, when your thoughts become too strong, it will take form into action. Thoughts comes on the basis of your inputs, what you are providing to your sensory organs more especially eyes and ears. anyone can take control just by these two.

is it tough in todays time? NO, not at all, definitely it’s need little practice to develop self control and will. it is nothing new, this is well known fact from ancient times.

2- second most important is companionship. being surrounded some way or other it is also great source of altering your mind. there thoughts will impact your decision. is it only reason people said choose people wisely, do not believe blindly. here it is worth mentioning that we must take precaution while judging people, if someone is having wealth, nice education well dressed up, nice looking body, we tend to follow that person, which is not right in all case, more specially in todays time. it is always better to be alone with some real good books rather than having surrounded by non sense people.

Please be aware of proverb when we say that “one good book is better than hundreds friends”. actually it is true when books was chosen wisely. it was true in olden times when books was written by genuine and enlightened people but this is not the case in todays time. it is always much better to be illiterate than ill- educated person.

3- wait and listen some one to whom you can trust ( no doubt there are no one better than your parents and siblings in this case :)). do not run after something to grab rather silently work and wait for it, before maturity of anything it always gives you pain only, and by this you will conclude your decision.

4- find something which you really want to do, not just for money but for your own soul. however small it is, it will bring you peace, like painting, music, dance etc..
5- purity and honestly- always remember it’s doesn’t matter how foolish it sound but these two are fundamental to run life, consciously and unconsciously.don’t throw your dignity and integrity in the name of freedom, you were free and you will be 🙂 it’s not related to your body and neither you have to prove to anyone.

6- avoid unnecessary interaction or activity in the name of the modern or open mindedness. it will caught you in trap for no reason. you may cry in the name of the modern world, but it is as feasible as anything else and it will help you tremendously to protect you in many ways.
here i want to clear you that it is for time being, when you become ready to handle all these worldly pull you can involve if time and situation require, some times running away is also a solution, not a weakness 🙂

7- Try to devote some time just for yourself, like meditation, japa or any ritual which you like for your self. slowly it will develop and evolve your conscious. it will also help you to engage yourself.

There is nothing Dark like things in this world, it is your collected karma and tendencies through which you born time and again, try to understand and workout these. here everybody has different path and destiny, neither anyone is greater than you neither small. just play your role honestly and its done. use your body to serve in good way and if you don’t want to serve then at least do not initiate wrongs things – it is also a kind of serving
