THIS CONFUSION AND CLARIFICATION FOREVER GO TOGETHER!

A young man was truly confused as the Great Sayings and what the Great Men a few times spoke of in that context were exactly found to be opposite like..

  • ‘Save enough finances for future as you earn since it's your primary duty in this world!’
And the opposite
  • ‘You should spend reasonable monies on good living and on Charity as these are bounden duties with you!’
  • ‘Eat well and thus maintain a good health!’
And the opposite
  • ‘Eat frugal and fast yourself to purify!’
  • ‘Work hard as it is a Sacred Duty with you!’ 
And the opposite
  • ‘Do Meditation all along and be at Peace!’
etc..etc.. Finally on a day, he came across a story of a Great Saint Himself to protect a robber said to the Security Guards,
  • 'I did the robbery!'
When all along the Great Saying ever on the anvil was
  • 'Speak the Truth!'
That was sure seen as the limit to his confusion, the next day he approached the Head of the Monastery in his neighborhood and sincerely sought the clarification on his doubt..

'How come one would develop faith in such scenario when the Great Men themselves spoke/did the opposite?' 

The Head smiled and said,

“Dear! What appeals to you is not That!”

The man looked at the Senior Personality on the matters unable to make out head and tail of what He spoke. The Head continued,
  • “What appeals to you is always out of a self interested thought as that basically protects an individual and Mother Nature has instilled this protection in all living beings for basic survival. The animal instinct may okay it's requirement 
But
  • Human considerations should necessarily rise above this level as the Purpose of Human Birth is entirely different with each individual sure involving in a certain self negation however small it may be in his/her life and thus rise in this one precious life in front. 
The very sign of this rising is nothing but living with a certain attention in one's life wherein this appealing would constantly be checked/questioned and clearly distinguished from the need in front.

Thus as you live your further life, the Clarity that comes thru' in you will itself guide you further and you will surely be knowing at every instant, what to do and what not to do without a single doubt!”

THE TIGHT ROPE WALK..

A dad had a peculiar problem.

  • When he was authoritative, his growing children used to be obedient and follow his advice and instructions but in that scenario he used to feel 'bad' that he was harsh to them.. 
  • The moment he became lenient, there used to be chaos and some order lost and in the process as a responsible father, he once again needed to correct them and that correction invariably used to be again through authority alone.. 
Thus he was feeling sad and could never understand the right way of action in that context. One fine day, he discussed the same with an elderly well-wisher and at length sought a right solution to his problem.

The elderly wise man listened to him, smiled and said,

“Dear! I understand your sensitivity here but whatever be your reaction, you agree that you have to do the ultimate good to your family.

The children are bound to listen to you if you insist in the right way as that alone is good for them. But along with this, your harshness and forceful thrusting may come up without yourself knowing it. And that should definitely be avoided here.

There if you are lax beyond at the back of an emotional feeling in you of not disturbing their relaxation, your people soon try skipping over the right and that's never good to them at any point of time in their life..

So, your day to day exercise should be..
  • Hold the reigns and be tough but only for a specific period in a day and 
  • When it's time to relax, truly relax without a feeling that you should maintain a distance to do this management, simply be with them and communicate heart to heart.
And your discipline again starts the next day without fail!

Thus move on in this life at this stage cyclically following the discipline of being strict, listening, strict, listening, strict etc whatever be your feelings out of your emotional attachment and manage the day to day activities in the right direction!"

CONTEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS..

The 5+ yrs had to go for many extra curricular activities at the young age. Naturally those extra activities in school curriculum as well as outside the curriculum were invariably on Sundays and holidays and that way the child was continuously made to involve into all those activities.





For a while, the grandpa felt a lot for the little one struggling to learn/do so many new beyond normal studies and there was a question in him for a while..

'Should the boy be put to that much hardship at that tender age making him tire beyond?'

For a while he was restless and almost decided to discuss his point with the family members to see that the boy was taken off partly from all that additional work load.

At that moment, suddenly, there was a flash in his mind.. And as the old man sat in his easy chair and thought over for a while, slowly a certain message was seen percolating within him..

'Contemporary knowledge/skills are the most important entities in one’s work life.

Any additional knowledge/skill with one away from own specialization is contemporary knowledge/skill assuming that he/she is update in his/her specialization.

Partly, contemporary knowledge/skills are taught up to the class where the schooling ends in one’s life. Rest of this knowledge/skills are acquired through one’s interaction in society and extra interests and this varies from person to person.

One always does one's work through one's specialization the best, no doubt about that. But doing alone is not all. One has to sell his/her work else money will not come.

That selling is a trick and one's basic skill or specialization alone can't do that unless there is less supply and more demand in the market. But most of the times it is definitely the other way in the world; more supply and less demand! So one has to sure create demand and compete in respect of the supply.

May be the quality of work which is out of one's skill alone may limit competition from others to certain extent when pricing and timely deliveries are taken care. But surely creation of demand depends upon one's skills of social interactions and all knowledge in that direction to the maximum.. And here only the contemporary knowledge/skills sure play a definite role!

The Employer may primarily take up the task of creating the demand but he/she definitely expects his Employee to assist in this. Therefore, an Employee does not have much choice in that!

So, next time when children are seen involving in anything beyond studies, pause and think.

That requirement is sure part and parcel of the coming up in life well, of course with the core specialization as base.. And that expression is never a waste in one's life!'

WHY AM I UNHAPPY?

FIRST OF ALL, LET ME KNOW WHAT REALLY HAPPINESS IS..

My life is not one 100% of my make alone. Let me do my bit here all along upholding the 'Right' to the best of my knowledge, that's good enough. 

Better leave beyond and relax for a while! 

LET ME ADAPT TO NATURE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.. 

I am originally from Nature and never from anywhere else. Listening to my 'Original Mother' never lets me down. 
Where's the doubt here that something else is superior? 

FOR A WHILE, LET ME KEEP MY HATRED IN COLD STORAGE.. 

I only make or mar my life and no one can touch it, if I decide upon that. 
Whenever I point out my finger at the other man, the other 3 fingers of mine might have curled in silently but the cosine of their action is never less and ever pointed towards me only. 
Better I know this the earliest! 

LET THE ENQUIRY SPIRIT NEVER BE EXTINGUISHED.. 

I have a deep quest within to do something and be something worth beyond all the worldly achievements. 
Let this be never killed through the rotten monotonous routine which keeps me static endlessly!

THERE'S NO GO FOR ME OTHER THAN BELIEVING IN ONENESS.. 

All human beings and the life around have many characteristics common whether l like or not. They are all already One long, long back before I was born. So the earliest I look this side, the better! 

THEY SAY.. 'WORK TO THE CORE!' WHY SO? 

Work alone moves the world. Let me contribute my 'Best' here without a second thought as I continuously consume.. 
Neither small in quantity nor less in varieties! 

LET CHANGE BE THE NO 1 PARTNER OF MY LIFE.. 

Every Moment is a new situation without an escape. 
Let me ever live through this change and experience the 'New' rather than remain stubborn sticking to the old of endless repetition! 

'GIVE GIVE GIVE..' BETTER I BECOME ATTENTIVE HERE AT THE EARLIEST! 

A man believed.. 
"My money alone saves me!" 
Days passed into weeks, months and years, it happens. 
No doubt by that time, a fortune was with him but he became old and that money surely saved him.
It changed hands fast, freed the man and made him Spiritual the next moment.
Is it worth waiting till that happens? 

SHOULD I NOT TAKE THE MINIMUM REQ? 

The greedy man decided, 
"I'll not waste this food. Let me eat it off!"
A wise man remarked, 
"You are right. Let it not be wasted.. 
But it rots better in dustbin rather than in your stomach!" 

HAVE I FORGOTTEN THE LAST POINT.. WHEN DID I PRAY TO GOD? 

The 'Next Moment in Life' is forever a toss in spite of my best efforts. 
Why not tune up to this 'Great Reality' for a while? 
If done, there alone lies my 
'True Prayer!'

NO DOUBT, IT'S ALL BUSINESS!

A young man got into a new but a mediocre job which never payed him much and he equally could not shift to another job too immediately as the Employers preferred a certain work experience from his end.. He was not satisfied with his immediate earnings and wanted to boost the same thru' an indirect business continuing his job and accordingly decided to venture into a small business all by himself afresh.

As he had no experience in the field, some one told him to take advice from one who was well known in the field but actively not doing any business in that line. When contacted, the man advised him on how and where to invest his finances. 3 months passed and on a fine day, the young man incurred a big loss and instantly found that one fourth of his investment gone at a single stroke.

A close friend told him that the previous Adviser might have been tipped by the big man in the field and so it would be always better to get a second independent opinion, average out and decide in all such ventures. And the young man had no way other than go for it. Another 3 months passed. It looked worked, but still there was a loss in the business and after all calculations the young man found that he lost an additional of one eighth of his investment.

Another friend advised him to take 2 such additional opinions in the field from two independent parties and decide based on the average of the three and the young man had no go again but to follow that. Next, six months passed thus. He was stable for a while, initially certain loss was there but of negligible percentage and soon profits showed up in small numbers.

A third friend advised him always to average out the best opinions available around and act. The young man soon followed that. But the success was again limited as the profits too averaged out.

Finally a well-wisher advised him to go to the man who was a Stalwart in the field and take his advice. The young man accordingly went to him, got the advice and returned.

And thereafter, he consistently made sizable monies in his life without a break!

What did the Stalwart in the field advice him in that context?

Kindly ref to the ANSWER here. 
Thanks for the patience!

NO DOUBT, IT'S ALL BUSINESS.. CONTD..

Thanks once again for the patience!

THE 'MIN QUALIFICATION' REQUIRED FOR ENTRY INTO SPIRITUAL FIELD!

3 young men once approached a Saint in an Ashram and requested Him to accept them as His disciples.. The Master gave them a 'Single Instruction' to complete a particular task and report to Him after a fortnight on the progress. All the 3 moved on accordingly, spent that time on the task assigned and at length returned. The 1st young man said,

“Reverend Sir! I couldn't exactly do the job you asked a 100% but completed in a limited way!"

The Master said,

  • "You could have at least done to the level I advised!" 
The young man replied,

"I was afraid of the consequences of doing thus!”

The Master looked at the 2nd one.. He said,

“Reverend Sir! I could do the job you asked a 100%!"

The Master said,

  • "You could have done a little more than I advised!" 
The young man replied,

"I was afraid of the consequences of doing thus!”

The Master looked at the 3rd young man.. He said,

“Master! I started doing the job you asked me to do. But soon I was convinced of a better way of doing there with a certain associated risk and as I couldn't do anything less in that context, I firmed up and completed the job in that direction!"

The Master said,
  • "But I never asked you to do all that!"
The young man replied,
  • "I agree but my intuition propelled me to do in that way and I could never say 'NO' there!"
The Master instantly accepted the 3rd young man as His disciple. The 2nd one protested saying that he did exactly in the way the Master asked him to do but still was not taken as His disciple. The Master smiled and said,
  • "Forever ready to do something beyond setting aside one's own fears as well as the inhibitions all along giving importance to the intuition within is the primary characteristic of a person in the line of spirituality and one who aspires to be in that line better exhibit this quality before entry into the related Institution.. 
  • And this fine way of doing our actions in a better way truly to say has an 'Infinite Depth.' An Evolved Soul alone can see at that 'Infinite Depth' where in all actions cease into a totally 'Action less State!'
  • For all others who are not at that level, continuing doing the ordained duties with them to the best of their abilities alone is the safeguard in their life till more Clarity comes through the decent of 'Grace of Lord' which is part of 'The Divine Plan in this Universe!'”
