Death is different from expiry date. We all keep focussing more on death, but actually death is shedding the existing body and renewing a new body based on your past karma to fulfil your unfulfilled karma.
SADHANA FOR A LIFE FREE OF VEDHANA AND SODHANA
Discipline is the word required only for human beings, animals don’t need it. They live as per nature. If you fail to cultivate discipline, it is inevitable that you will have to go through unavoidable pain and sufferings in life. Human beings in spite of being the best of God’s creation, fail to understand that their pain and sufferings are because of their own self-created experience and they keep blaming their own karma or astrological chart. Always remember that the only way to come out of the existing pain and suffering is to create a future without pain and sufferings and this is possible on only by following a spiritual discipline called ‘Sadhana’. This creates an unfailing condition to live a life without Vedhana (a life free of pain and sufferings). One who takes self- effort to commit to practice Sadhana , Shastra promises a life free of ‘Vedhana’ and ‘Sodhana’ and above all relief from pain and sufferings which is called as ‘Nivarana’.
THE SPIRITUAL PATH
One of the highest disciplines is not just indulging in any activity but there is something called delaying and denying which is a possibility only by human beings. We are going through pain and suffering in our life not due to lack of knowledge or intelligence. In spite of knowing what is good for us, Vedas says that the ultimate reason for all our pain is delaying and denying, which animals can never do. Unless we understand and come out of it, we will keep complaining that we are suffering from depression, stress and other disorders. As a matter of fact, any possible disease is due to delaying and denying the right actions. For example, one is busy in his meeting, a billion dollar client meeting, because of which he is unable to have dinner or lunch on time. He is delaying his time of having food on time. Here he is not committing any sin or harm to anyone. It’s a simple process of delaying and denying. He knows what the right food is and what time he should have food, but he is unable to take it on time due to some reasons. Similarly, after a long tiring day, every human being should have at least six to seven hours of sound sleep. Because of some pressure or commitment, people deny and delay their sleep hours which is going to create an instant and immediate bad effect on their body. So, ask yourself today about the fundamental things that you have delayed and denied in life. Without understanding this, any amount of approach in spirituality can never be considered as a spiritual path. Spiritual path is not just chanting the name of God or studying about the God power; it’s about committing to create the right condition in our body to maintain a good energy in order to receive the God power which is everywhere and every time. In this very process, the first and foremost factor that will immediately affect our energy level is delaying and denying nature of human mind. We should be able to control this. By nature, every living being is blessed with a divine intelligence not to indulge in any activity which will give them pain and suffering in the present or in the future.
WORK FOR YOURSELF- THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE WILL WORK FOR YOU
We are not wasting time, we are wasting our life. For example, when we suffer from headache or any other minor pain, we take a tablet. If the expiry date mentioned on it is 2018 January, normally, we wouldn’t consume it in 2019. In this case, the expiry date is not for the tablet, it’s for you. This is the one thing to be kept in mind with ultimate awareness. No matter how much ever you rise yourself in consciousness or in intelligence or achieve any number of unachievable goals, your expiry cannot be changed or delayed or denied. Understanding that we have unlimited power to be utilised but with limited time will make you come out of this bad nature of delaying and denying which is the only reason for all these pain and sufferings. This realisation will bless you with unbelievable positive changes beyond your imagination. You can always tell yourself that once you start working on your own self, the entire universe will work for you. The very nature of the nature is to provide you with all the power to come out of the pain and suffering with everlasting peace and prosperity. With this understanding, you will not only be the source of success for yourself you will be the source of success to anyone who is associated with you. That is the ultimate joy of living. With no further delay, let’s get into the life of real success and happiness.
Wishing you a life full of peace, success and happiness!!
