The Negative Shade Of Respect In Relationships (Part 2)

In yesterday's message, we had looked at the incorrect and negative side of respect (the energy of fear) in relationships. Today we look at this kind of relationship from that person's perspective from whom respect is demanded. When the boss or the parent or the spouse (please refer to yesterday's message) tries to induce respect inside you for him or her, in return you fear him or her, most of the time thinking it is respect. But, at that point, you need to remember it is impossible to give respect to another if we, at the back of our own minds, fear them. If you are scared of someone or something, it means there is an absence of self -respect, there is a lack of a true realization of your own value, your specialties, your skills and the virtues and powers that you possess. And if you do not respect yourself, you cannot truly respect another. It is only when you are firmly established in your own self-respect that you have no fear of others and are then capable of giving genuine respect to others. Sometimes we are not comfortable with being seen as fearful, because our image will take a beating, so we try to avoid admitting we fear someone by saying we respect them, but internally we are in awe of that person and being in awe is not respecting him or her.

Many a times, two prominent people e.g. two actors or politicians or sportsmen are not on good terms. They accuse and bring down each other publicly and are known enemies in the press. While they do that, they also carry a subtle fear of each other, a fear that the other will outperform them; the other will be more popular, the other will be more powerful etc. This normally happens because of a lack of self-respect. They both will probably hide that and will pretend that they are confident and established in their self-respect. But if their self-respect were genuine, they would not be scared of each other, and they would have the courage and the patience to talk and work with each other and listen to and offer the hand of friendship to each other, whom they perceive to be an enemy. But when they don't have the strength of their own self-respect and when they are unaware of their lack of self-respect, subtle fear for the other creeps in, which they don't realize and if they realize, they do not admit the same. And that's why the restoration of self-respect is only possible when the ego is recognized and no longer nourished. Because, fear always comes from the ego and ego is nothing but an excessive attachment to one's false image.

To do what is right for all is to remain happy.

Expression: The one who is always concerned for others is the one who can do right for others. There is constant benefit for others merged in every action of such a person. Because of having given without expectation, there is happiness in everything that is done. There is also uniqueness and speciality revealed in every action.

Experience: I experience double benefit, because there is happiness in the effort as well as in the result of that effort. There is constant success experienced by me. I am also able to receive the good wishes and blessings from others and I further get encouraged to use my speciality. So I constantly experience progress in my life.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 25-04-2015

The Negative Shade Of Respect In Relationships (Part 1)

Many a times in offices, we find the dominating boss who wants everyone in the office to fear him or her. The boss may not necessarily be a person with a negative personality, but this desire exists inside the boss because he or she holds a negative belief that people fearing him is the same as respecting him and respect is something that any boss would naturally yearn for. This can happen in homes also, with a dominating father or a dominating mother doing the same with the other members of the family.

The main reason why this happens is because the boss or the father or the mother is normally lacking in self-respect, although he or she is unaware of it. Due to this, he or she, without realizing again, is looking for it from others and in fact over a period of time, as the need builds up or increases, he or she will start demanding the same from others, which takes a form of the negative energy of fear in the relationship. The boss or the father or the mother starts feeling that the sign that he or she is successful in achieving in getting the respect he or she wants, would be the other fearing him or her. Simply getting someone's attention or the other being in awe of him or her or the other being under his or her negative influence which are all subtle forms of fear is then mistaken for being respected, and if he or she does not receive respect in this incorrect manner, he or she will even try and bring about the creation of respect in the other and try and pull it from the other using various methods which are violent in a subtle way, harming the relationship in a big way.

In tomorrow's message, we shall look at this type of relationship from the other's i.e. the employee's perspective or the perspective of the other people in the family in the case of the father or mother.

Message for the day 25-04-2015
-----------------------------------------

To be a teacher means to touch the heart rather than the head.

Expression: Teaching others means being subtle and explaining in such a way that the mind opens because the heart has understood. The one who truly teaches inspires rather than just becoming the one who teaches others. There is a recognition of the positivity that is in each one and so no comparisions are made with others.

Experience: Once I am able to look at the positivity in another individual and have the pure desire of enabling progress within that person, I am able to feel the love for him. This is like a parent's love whose love for the child is that which makes him grow. So I become a teacher who inspires rather than the one who teaches.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 24-04-2015

--------------------------------------
Soul Sustenance 24-04-2015
--------------------------------------

Returning To The Inner Seat Of Mental Comfort And Peace

At the end of a busy and hurry filled and many a times even peaceless day at office, everyone goes home, to do what? Even a housewife, who has had a busy day in the kitchen and with the children, will yearn to do want at the end of the day? Sit, lie down, relax and experience peace. Just as each one of us returns home or to the comfort of the bedroom at the end of each day; each time we experience any of the various forms of anger in our words or actions or even in our thoughts, sooner or later, we will try to return to what we instinctively and intuitively know is the truth, what is right and good, to the inner seat of our own mental comfort and peace, which is our original and basic sanskara, peacelessness being an acquired one. It's as if we know when we are set on this seat that we have access to our inner power. It's as if we know that we can only be comfortable, powerful, blissful and content when we are first peaceful.

Sitting on this seat also provides us with the ability and the power to influence others. A proof of the fact is that all of us have, sometime or the other, known someone who lived their life peacefully but assertively (not weakly or timidly). They expressed themselves peacefully and interacted with others free of any traces of anger in their personality, and they stayed, more or less, positively peaceful and peacefully positive. We remember that person for much longer than the one who is always finding an excuse to use the weapon of anger when things or people do not go his way or get things or people to be as he would want. The peaceful nature of another makes a deeper and more lasting impression on our hearts than the angry nature of another. And when we are in the presence of such a peaceful person, we always allow them into our lives much more and for longer periods of time. In the same way, when we function from our inner seat of mental peace, we are able to influence others and make a lasting impression on others much more.

God's love brings out the perfection from within.

Expression: The power of God's love brings about change internally. Through His love everything old and unwanted finishes. There is the natural tendency to bring about such perfection that the one who loves Him and gets His love becomes like a mirror - a mirror in which perfection of others too is visible.

Experience: There is such inner strength that I get because of God's love that even if somebody does something to hurt me, I don't allow myself to get hurt. Even if people are saying negative things, they don't influence or touch me in a negative way. I am so full with God's love that it naturally flows out to those around me.

The Wheel Of Time Turns (Part 6)

Even today, there are real life recorded instances in nature where metal spoons can be bent and the growth of plants can be influenced positively just by the power of thought, without touching. The process of reproduction in humans of the pure world, explained in yesterday’s message, has not been recorded in history books but evidences of the same are found in the form of references in many of our religious books or shastras. Even in Christianity, it is believed that Jesus Christ was born without any physical contact to virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit of God, that too just about 2000 years ago. That, at a time, when lust had started becoming prevalent in the world and had begun to be seen as natural and existing from the beginning, which was an incorrect perception. Also, the souls coming down from the soul world at that time were not as pure as the ones that descend in the pure world and souls that have descended in the pure world i.e. in the beginning, have also lost their purity after having gone through many lifecycles of birth and death. Approximately 500 years before Christ and after 2500 years of a pure world existence, is the gradual beginning of the impure world.

When purity is lost, slowly over a period of time, the emotions that are born from purity – peace, love and joy also slowly started reducing in human hearts and human relationships leading to hatred, peacelessness and war in the human state of affairs, which is the story of the next 2500 years. This period of 2500 years is called the dark night of humanity while the first 2500 years is the day. This dark period is the time when humans started disobeying the spiritual laws of karma and lost their way due to a lack of spiritual wisdom. Also, God was remembered a lot in this night and temples, churches and mosques were created as a symbol of this remembrance and to remind man of the higher spiritual parent. It is a wonder of the 5000 year world drama that God descends on Earth only after impurity and sorrow reaches its maximum i.e. when a few years of the 2500 years long night are remaining, approximately 100 years before the 5000 year period is about to end, to perform His task of creating a new world order based of complete purity.

To receive respect from others comes more with responsibility than as a right.

Expression: The one who gets respect is the one who becomes worthy of it rather than the one who just expects it. True respect comes from how well a task is done rather than what is done. The more one's speciality is expressed, the more one becomes worthy of respect.

Experience: When I go on giving my best in whatever is expected of me, I will start receiving respect from those around me. I will then never expect from others but will naturally be able to give respect to all. This further makes me earn their love and regard.

Soul Sustenance & Message for the day 22-04-2015

The Wheel Of Time Turns (Part 5)

God was always a permanent resident of the soul world and a spectator of everything happening below for the first 2500 years of the 5000 year world cycle, when the world was completely pure. Even conception or reproduction or the process which initiates the formation of the birth of a child or offspring in this world is a subtle process and a completely non-lustful process although the actual process of the creation of the baby inside the mother’s womb is very much a physical one. Non-lustful processes of reproduction or conception without the physical union of two genders exist even in the present world in a few animals, plants, fish, birds, insects and lesser developed organisms.

The method can be compared to the theory of psychosomatic illnesses, wherein the thought patterns of the mind, whether positive or negative have a beneficial or harmful effect respectively on the recovery of the illness which exists inside the physical body of a human, which is an example of the non-physical influencing the physical. In the same way, the non-physical technique of reproduction is a meeting of pure thoughts between the two parents i.e. the male and the female, wherein both carry a powerful and positive thought to bring the new creation or baby in the world, which causes the sanskaras of the new child to become like the sanskaras of the two parents on a non-physical level. On looking at the makeup of the systems in the present human body, one might wonder that this is impossible. But, an important point to note is that the systems of the body have evolved (changed) from what they were 5000 years ago. The five elements of nature which make up the physical body and its systems have also changed and become more impure as compared to what they were around 5000 years ago, resulting in a rise in physical illnesses or ailments. Physical body processes, related to the systems, have also changed and gone down in their purity levels. Also, the power of thought in the pure world, where extremely pure souls that have just come down from the soul world is immense which can influence nature much more than our thoughts today.

Greatness lies in revealing one's own speciality.

Expression: Greatness means recognising one's own speciality and being a donor with it. It also means being royal and great in what is given to the mind - that means giving the mind only the positive. When there is greatness in this way there is speciality and uniqueness seen in every act of mine.

Experience: When I am able to perceive my inner greatness, I am able to be content because there are no expectations, but there's only a feeling of being a giver. I find myself to be light and easy and enjoying each moment of my life, slowly moving towards perfection. I am also able to attain the blessings and good wishes from others.

The Wheel Of Time Turns (Part 4)

God has been remembered all over the world as the Ocean of Knowledge. That does not mean He knows everyone’s heart and the minutest detail of each human being’s thinking. But, He has in Him the complete knowledge of world events which took place throughout the world cycle, although He is a player on the planet Earth for a very short period of time and He does not see the events of the complete cycle with physical eyes because He is a resident of the soul world for most of the time. He gives the knowledge of these events of the world cycle in a nutshell (brief) when He incarnates on the Earth at the end of the world cycle. This is a wonder of nature and His unique role. Also He knows the activity of all human souls, on the planet Earth, as human beings in different phases, as they slowly descended number wise on Earth from the soul world, the other souls being in the soul world up above the sun, moon and physical stars – the soul stars, the non-physical beings of consciousness or living beings of light which shined in the pure realm (world) of soft golden red light, a world which we call paramdham or shantidham or nirvandham in Hindi and soul world or incorporeal world in English.

God has also in Him stored the knowledge of each soul in the soul world, when it left the soul world to play its part through the physical body on the planet Earth below and the different roles it played on Earth. Souls start leaving the soul world at the beginning of the 5000 year repetitive cycle. As time progresses, the soul world starts emptying. God plays the role of creator or transformer at the end of one cycle and before the beginning of the next cycle by filling souls of all species with the seven primary virtues of peace, joy, love, bliss, purity, power and spiritual wisdom or truth, when all souls have arrived on planet Earth and have reached a state of impurity; which brings them back to their original purity levels and gives birth to the new cycle.

The method to finish a weakness is to be detached from it.

Expression: When there is some weakness working within that has to be overcome, it is very essential for one to get detached from it, that means not to identify with the weakness. If there is an identification with the weakness, it is further strengthened and there is the inability to get rid of it. Since it is there in the consciousness, it is visible in the words and actions too.

Experience: When I am free from the identification with the weakness, I am able to bring about a change very quickly. I find it very easy to stabilise myself in the awareness of my strength and allow that strength to be revealed in all my words and actions. There is no heaviness of the weakness nor is there the feeling of having to give up something, but transformation takes place very easily.

The Wheel Of Time Turns (Part 3)

As per the laws created by science, human existence has been limited to a one birth affair because the concept of the subtle (non-physical) and eternal (it is never created or destroyed) soul has been put into the category of spiritualism by science, although there is nothing spiritual about living a soul conscious existence; it is a basic reality of living, in fact living in the right spirit, we would call it per se (exactly). Science and spirituality contradict each other and have opposing beliefs and laws on which they work. Science, in the field of human existence, works on the Big Bang theory and Darwin’s theory of evolution and spirituality works on the wisdom or knowledge given by the Supreme seed of the human world tree, whom we commonly called God. God is not an imagination but a player in the world drama just like human souls and souls of other species. He is not a theoretical concept but our Father with whom, many of us, under the influence of the science minded, have cut off our subtle connection and again put him into the category of spirituality and religion. Is God more of a Father of the religious minded and spiritually inclined and less of a Father or not a Father of the followers of science, who have questioned his role of the creator (explained in yesterday’s message)?

Every soul on this planet, belonging to any species of life, has a fixed part of certain number of births in bodies of different genders, names, physical looks and roles, which it plays in one rotation of the wheel of time or one round of the circle of time. The total part of a fixed number of births is repeated in every circle of time. Souls of one species do not take the bodies of other species, since the souls of each species have their own unique characteristics or sanskaras and do not possess the characteristics or sanskaras of the other species. One complete round of the circle of time, as revealed by God, takes 5000 years and the circle of time keeps getting played repeatedly. That is why we commonly say the universe is billions of years old. The true fact is that the universe is eternal and it has not been created by God, although God plays the role of creator in the universe when the world is in disorder, by bringing it back in order.
