जो प्रतीक्षा करने को तैयार है वह अंततः सब कुछ पा ही लेगा । और जो जितनी गहन प्रतीक्षा कर सकेगा वह जीवन के उतने गहनतम रहस्यों को जान पाएगा । प्रेम और सत्य अस्तित्व के गहनतम रहस्य हैं । इसीलिए प्रेमियों और साधकों को प्रतीक्षा में डूबने की कला सीखनी होगी ।
ग्रीष्म ऋतु एक अर्थ में पीड़ादायक है । सूरज की तपन, पसीने की चिपचिपाहट! हर कोई गर्मी से बचना चाहता है । हम गर्मी से भागने के उपाय खोजते रहते हैं । लेकिन भागने की बजाय गर्मी का साक्षी बनने का प्रयास करें । आप एक अनोखी, अंतस शीतलता महसूस करेंगे!
प्रेम दुनिया का सबसे अनमोल तोहफ़ा है । प्रेम ने मेरे स्वभाव को बदलने में बहुत साथ दिया है । मैंने प्रेम के रास्ते में जब से चलना प्रारम्भ किया है तब से मुझे कष्ट और दुख ही मिले हैं, परन्तु साथ में आनंद भी प्राप्त हुआ है । प्रेम के मार्ग में अपनी प्रेमिका से नफ़रत भी हुई है …Read More →
Because you try very hard. Trying very hard simply means it must happen. Remember all plans are tentative. No matter how precisely and perfectly done. And if a plan has multiple steps, then its failure is almost inevitable. If one step fails, the rest fall out of place. It is like you have to visit a place. No through train is available. You chalk out a detailed plan: at such and such place you will leave one train and catch another; likewise, there is a whole series of connected trains. Then, the first train gets late and lo…!
Do not plan too much. It does not mean being casual or non-serious about things. Just be spontaneous. Try to live life consciously so that you are fully and totally present to deal with things. Planning is a type of defense mechanism, spontaneous living is very dangerous. Choose the latter. Feel the adventure of life.
I am through with +2 exams. Now I am utterly confused as to which field I should opt for higher studies.
The mind of every human being is like a parliamentary house where multiple, rather opposing voices, are always shouting. In this pandemonium, one’s own voice is stifled. When your own voice is lost, you are confused. Confusion simply means inability to receive inner guidance.
How do you lose touch with yourself? By constantly avoiding yourself. Does it sound weird? Maybe. But it is true. Most of human actions are mere tricks of running away from one’s own self.
Stop playing these tricks. Get in touch with yourself. Once this touch is regained, there can never be any confusion.
I am heartbroken. All my friends let me down. The ones I had trusted betrayed me. Is there no one we can trust?
The root cause of all heartbreaking is expectation. Whether consciously or unconsciously, we go on expecting from people. And the closer they are to us, the higher expectations. But no one can fulfil these expectations. It is impossible. When they are not fulfilled we feel let down, betrayed. Who has betrayed you? Just look closely into this betrayal and you will find that what you call betrayal is, in fact, a particular way of behaviour that is unwanted or unacceptable to you. Suppose you take offence when somebody backbites you. If the backbiter is a stranger, offence is mild; if a close friend or relative, the offence is sharp. Why? Because with strangers, there are no expectations.
Drop all expectations and no one can break your heart.
The bliss comes not from me but from your own inner space. This bliss is eternally flowing inside. But because of the hustle-bustle of life we miss to feel it. In my presence, you become relaxed. All running around stops. The mad and blind rush to fulfil dreams and ambitions is no more there. In this moment of rest you are overwhelmed with a deep bliss. The source of bliss is within you. Just pay attention to it.
You can deal with any matter whatsoever, whether simple everyday issues or critical/complex ones, only when you are present. An absent-minded person cannot comprehend a situation, let alone handle it. Silence simply means being present wherever you are. Intensely. Totally. When your whole energy is focused, collected, concentrated, then you are perfectly ready to deal with any matter.
