One has no power to change what has happened in the past, but has got all the power to change what is happening and what is going to happen in the future! For this we have to decide not to dwell in the past and let go of everything that is bothering us from the past. Once you realise this, the entire universe will give you all the power and resources to change your life!
Generally, people have the highest fear of losing their “familiar zone.” There are five things that stop one from taking a new step or decision.
First, is a ‘reference of the past’ which is the reason for current perceptions, when we look at a person or a situation some of our past reference doesn’t allow us to take that new step. Second is, ‘opinion from others’; most of the time, the fear of failure will stop us doing the things that can move us forward as we are influenced by other’s opinion. Third, is ‘one’s health condition, when you are not healthy, you cannot be in a state of peace, and when you are not in peace you will not be able to get out of their familiar zone and make new moves. Finally, a relationship problem or financial problem will keep a person preoccupied and will not allow them to work on creating their future.
Among the entire creation, other than human no other animal can ever enquire their own-self, why am I doing, what am I doing or create a future of their own choice. The divine truth is human-being alone are blessed with the power of self-enquiry. The real self-enquiry is not questioning the religion, community or the presence of god, it is questioning about the future. This alone will give you the power to reach from where you are to where you want to be.
No matter how much ever vision you hold for the future, the power to do the changes in the current situation to achieve the vision you hold for the future is possible only through self-enquiry, the Vedas calls it as atma-vichaara!
Self-enquiry is not talking about others or talking to others, it’s talking to your own-self and listening to your own self. This will give you all the power to bring the unstoppable positive changes in the present and the future.
Meditation is the ultimate connection with the divine that alone can give us the energy for self-enquiry. Connecting with god is the only way to change your life. To connect with the divine, we need to bring in a certain change in the biology which we call as meditation. Like there is food for earth energy, water for water energy, sunlight for fire energy and oxygen for air energy, we have meditation which is the only food for soul or space energy.
So, fear no more; we have all the power within us which will help change our destiny. Sitting in silence and meditating automatically gives us a positive mental attitude which will help us face any adverse situation and come out of it successfully. In that very moment you get all the power not just to create a good future but a great fortune!
Wishing you a life of peace, success and abundance.
