What is Spirituality? What makes us Spiritual being?

Spirituality is really a broad term having its different aspect in different worlds. Spirituality i can say is when our soul longings for its origin(God). In our life, there comes a time when we all experience the feeling of being loneliness. We find every worldly affairs with us but still experience the feeling of being loneliness. We don’t like the worldly affairs to amuse us. That is the craving of the soul towards the God. When we make action to reach to the God, that makes us spiritual being. It’s not as easy as to read this all. Being spiritual is very difficult but not impossible. Being one with the one(God) who is the creator of all the worlds. The purpose of this human birth is to get back to the true home(Sachkhand). Where we will realize we are no different being. We realize the truth of being one and feel the totality and integration. There is only love. God is nothing but the Love. A pleasure that is for eternity.  (more…)

Prayer for Healing

Life is uncertain. All days are not alike. Our life goes through several ups and downs. One moment we spend with full of happiness and the other we spend with full of sadness. When we go through good times we may not thank God for the all these happy moments. But when we go through a tough time we cannot help our self from doing Prayer For Healing. We want someone listen to our story of sorrow.

What is the Best Prayer for Healing?

I wonder when one ask what’s the best Prayer for Healing. This story will help us to know what is the best Prayer for Healing. Once there was a man. He was in great trouble. Everything was going wrong in his life. Neither his relatives nor his wealth was in his favor. He was suffering all: Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Economically. He couldn’t see no way out of his crisis. He had tried all his level best to get things settled, but all in vain. After all this, he dropped his knees in Prayer and said, “Lord I cannot go like this. I have too heavy a cross to bear”. The Lord replied, “My dear son if you can’t bear its weight, just place your cross down. Then ask him to open other door and pick out any cross you wish.” He was filled with great relief and said, “Thank you, Lord”. He did the same as God told him. After entering the room, he saw many crosses. Some of these were so large the even tops were not visible. Then he saw a tiny cross leaning against a fa wall. Then he whispered God, “I’d like that one”. The Lord replied, “My son that is the cross you just brought in.” So that’s a story. I don’t know how much reality is in it. But the lesson we can take out of this is just be in His will (One Universal Creator God). He knows what is best for us. He knows what we are going through. Instead of complaining just thank Him for his blessings. We should also think over What Does God Want From Us.

Like a doctor gives who gives us bitter medicines so that we can get well. In the same way God put us to the situations so that we can get better. It’s all our Karma that causes troubles. Just thank God for everything. We see every time we need help of God we pray. When we go to temple, Gurudwara or Church, we offer some words for being wellness. When we are running late or get stuck in traffic, we start repeating his name over and over again. When we cut our finger, we shout his name immediately. When our baby opens his or her eyes, we thank God with tears of happiness. When our baby get hurts due to some injury, we grasp our heart and beg Him (GOD) to protect him/her. When we lose our beloved ones, we cry and cry and ask Him why this happened with us. When we see something wrong around us, we urge Him to get things settled once again. We beg Him to help us whenever life draws us in difficulty. Like the man in the story, the moment we realize we are helpless and cannot step further to help our self. We fall to our knees and pray for his mercy and grace to reduce our cross. The thing keep in your mind is the Cross is nothing but all created by our self. It’s all just due to our previous actions or Karmas. We can’t trace everything we have done to create this cross. We have accumulated these karmas over so many lifetimes. Whenever our karmas creates problem in the present and our cross seem to be breaking our back it becomes hard to escape a prayer from our lips.

What really a prayer is?

What is the real prayer? It’s not merely uttering some words. Prayer is something greater than asking help with words. When we pray we unite ourselves with the Lord. Though the Almighty knows everything yet we remind him what we are going through. Because by making pray we satisfy our self that now God has come to know what I am going through. Our level is not that much we can see what actually is behind the scene.
Mystics have explained that a prayer is the essence of the spirituality. When we pray we can feel the presence of the God. We find him Omnipresent and Omniscient by communicating through prayer. When we pray we get courage to cope up all the problems. Our fear reduces and inner purity spreads inside. The mind and body get relaxed after prayer. Our faith strengthened more than ever. We should learn the purpose of the prayer. We simply need to surrender our self to the God’s will. It means that we have to submit our faith to the lord and leave the result of our action in the hands of the Lord. As He knows everything and we know he can’t commit any mistake we simply need to completely surrender to Him. Whatever the situation we are in right now that is simply because of our karmas.
Where Should We Pray?
True Prayer can be practiced within our self. We know this body is called the living temple of the lord. We don’t need to go anywhere else. We simply need to search for Him between the two eyes. He is closer than anything else. The form of prayer is not reciting particular verses or phrases but awakening of the Lord within this body through meditation.

One of the great mystics said about Prayer For Healing(Teachings Of The Saints)

“When you pray, enter the closet of the body and shut the outer doors. Do not let the attention wander outside. Open your heart to the Lord within. He will listen to the prayer made in this secret spot.”

When our attention is on the Master, our all problems and difficulties fade into the background. We need not do anything different but just focused inside. This leads us to the Lord and makes us fit for His mercy and grace. Just keep reminding yourself, we need to be patient when we put in the effort to listen to the Shbad, the divine melody within. It’s all will be only possible when our practice is perfected, we will feel the peace and bliss within not outside. Just the thought of this stirs the desire within us to being one with the Lord. This is something that make us rise above the costumes of body and mind, and reach the point where we feel the presence of the Lord from whom all blessings originate.

The famous words of Saint Kabir (as quoted in Kabir the Weaver of Gods Namme) come to mind whenever we speak of prayer and difficulties: “All do simran during the gloom of adversity; in days of sunshine few repeat the Name. If man does simran in happiness, he will not suffer adversity’s pain.” As we meditate daily it is the continue to pray in meditation daily, we may one day find ourselves saying the same words that Ole Hallesby said to the Lord (as he wrote in his book Prayer):

There come times, not so seldom with me at least, when I have nothing more to tell God If I were to continue to pray in words, I would have to repeat what I have already said. At such times it is wonderful to say to God. “May I be in Thy presence, Lord? I have nothing more to say to Thee, bul I do love to be in Thy presence.

It’s quite hard to escape praying when we are in trouble. We seek Prayer for Healings. But need to consider He knows every bit of us. He knows what we are going through. Do we still think we need to tell him what we are going through? We just need to be in his will. How can we accomplish this? Just keep Him in your thoughts every time by doing Simran. There comes a time when we will be able to get know the truth of all this pain and pleasure. Just appreciate and cherish with his Naam.

Next time you are in trouble or overwhelmed with joy, just don’t forget to thank Him. It doesn’t need to remind Him what you going through. Just tell Him to give you strength to go through every phase. He doesn’t want anything but appreciation. Then we will come to know Who We Are.

Forgive The Past, Forgive The People ! 

Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let it go. We see people are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing. Just cheer live it upto maximum. Do not know what moment will be our/their last moment.

Do not regret over the past instead just learn from it. We keep our ego foremost and just get cling to something that happened in the past. As we grow in, we realize life is something beyond this. Happiness is in forgetting past and in forgiving people.

Teachings Of The Saints 

Every time a Saint,  a true and perfect Master comes is this world, everyone of them has the same message and the same teachings to impart. No Saint or no perfect master,  comes into this world to create religion, to divide people, to set one nation or one religion against each other. They come to the world to show us the path that simply leads to our true home, where there is only love exist. But after a master departs, what we do? We give his teachings the form of an organized religion. Then we start fighting with one another and forget the real teachings very soon.

Saints do not come into the word of their own will. They are always appointed and  sent by the father. Niether do they desired to preach nor do they want to initiate anybody by themselves. Whenever lord wishes, He himself sends a perfect master to collect the marked souls. 

Christ speaks of “the father which hath sent me” and “for I came down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him that sent me”

Guru Arjan, speaking about his coming of the Saints to this world, says

They are beyond both birth and death. 

They, the compassionate and merciful ones, 

Come to grant new life and kindle devotion, 

And enables the soul to meet the Lord.

Saints may be born in East or in West, in any country, caste or creed- it doesn’t make any difference. The only purpose of every Mystics is to come and to put us on the path that leads to God-realization and to take us back to our eternal home, to the level of The Father. 

Something To Think About 

⌚As I grown up with time I realized, whether I wear a watch of Rs. 3000 or of Rs. 30000. Both will show the same time

🎒whether I have a bag of RS. 3000 or of RS.30000. There will be no change in the stuff inside. 
🏘 Whether I live in a house of 300-yard or of 3000-yard. The feeling of loneliness will be the same.

 
🛩At the end I also came to know that whether I start my journey by sitting in business class or in economy Class, I will reach my destination only at the same time.

💰👦🏻👧🏻So do not encourage your children to be rich, but teach them how they can stay happy. And when grown up, they only see the importance of things instead their worth.

🌍 Do not indulge with the world and its affairs too much because it is mortal, but put it to religion because it is the rest of the world …

A French minister had said
🎳 Branded things are the biggest lies in the trading world, whose purpose is to extort money from the rich but poor people are heavily influenced.

📱Is it necessary that I should walk with the Iphone so that people consider me wise and sensible?

🍔 Is it necessary that I eat in Mac or Kfc everyday so people do not understand that I’m stingy?

🏋🏼Is it necessary that I go to the Downtown Cafe for exercise with friends so that people understand that I am from a noble family?

⛸Is it necessary for me to wear Gucci, Lacoste, Adidas or Nike clothes so that Gentlemen is called?

🔠Is it necessary for me to include some English words in every detail so that I should call it decent?

📻Is it necessary that I listen to Adele or Rihanna so that I can prove that I have got mature?

Not at all my dear friend !!!
👕My clothes are bought from ordinary shops,

🍛 I can go with my friends at any dhaba, 

🥜If I feel hungry, i do not even think of any insult in eating from any stall,

I speak in my straightforward language. If i may want,  I can do everything that is written above
But …. 

👨‍👩‍👧‍👧👨‍👩‍👦‍👦I have seen such people those who can take a full week-long ration in the price of a shirt bought from my Adidas.
🍱🍱I have also seen such families that can make one time meal for all their family members at a price of Mac burger. 

Just I have found this secret here that money is not everything.  People who judge others from their outer appearance should immediately get their treatment. 
The true value of human origin is its ethics, behavior, way of reconciliation, sympathy and brotherhood. Not that it’s outer appearance. 

At the end I would like to say stop showing offs and just enjoy the life with what you can afford.

Not The Time To Only Think… 

As we choose the path of spirituality that leads us to tatality, higher form of living, our true home where everyone of us want to get there. What we have done so far right from the time we start following spiritual path? As a seeker what is the need of the hour? If we question ourself what changes we have seen in us from then to now! Is there any change??

What we try to do is  collecting the knowledge. In the process of collecting knowledge rather going inside we are just astraying outside.  we are thinking too much and wasting time to get the knowledge that is something like merely theory that is of no worth.  We know almost everything what we need to do. And still thinks that we will get something better from outside. But practical knowledge that we will get from inside through meditation is something different. That knowledge will cause change in our behavior, our anger, lust, selfishness. If we want to get something that is valuable then need to think lesser and act more. Meditation is the only way to get the true knowledge. That can’t be described or get understood through worldly affairs. We know everything what is good for us and what is bad. Now the time when we have to act. As this is not the time to only think but the time to make efforts, go inside and get the truth, totality within us. Only then we can see the change in us.

What does God want from us? 

What Does God Want From US
Right from our childhood till today we have been telling our wants to our God. Every day we put our desires before God. There might pass a single day when we don’t put our demand before the one whom we worship. But have we ever thought what our God wants from us?? What his expectations are from us?? Does he want our money?? Does he want our possessions?? What actually he wants?? Do we care?? He doesn’t want anything, all the relationships, money, possessions, everything that we posses is the grace​ of the Almighty. He doesn’t need of these for sure but he wants us to appreciate all these possessions. He wants us to express our love by actions not merely through words. He wants us to be content whatever he has given us. He wants us to see pain and pleasure the same thing. He wants us to be in his will. He is the creater of universes. He is perfect. He is omniscient. He is omnipotent. He is omnipresent. It doesn’t require to tell him what we want, what we are going through. He knows everything. He knows exactly what we are going through. Just need to surrender ourself and stay under the shelter of his will. He is capable of doing anything. He has every potential. So all we need to appreciate what we have and what we are going through. He wants us to appreciate rather complaining. Whether in pain or pleasure just don’t forget to appreciate.
Thanks
