As we celebrate Full Moon Day today dedicated to Buddha ; three virtues come to mind –
And Let me start with Non Attachment. Having no attachment with desire, people, situations and past or future…leads to erosion of suffering. It never means we can not care and love people…but its done by being Seeer NOT doer. This also leads to us having no expectation from others but only acceptance of universe as it is.
With Non Attachment as virtue, we understand beauty is within . As we go within, connection with inner spirit establishes and peace is natural outcome. Meditation helps a lot in achieving this state. When Peace embraces us we get strong with sense of serving others. Serving makes us Deserving by Universe for we become Giver not Taker.
Compassion develops as an extension of non attachment and peace within. When we have no ego, we receive Greatness. At this state we are seeing other beings and non beings as one and same. We are in Unison with Uni-verse. We feel when some one suffers and we act whenever we can to reduce suffering of others. And this power to feel and contribute comes from our own non attachment as first virtue.
May Buddha be awaken within all of us…for world is in absolute need of compassion and peace.
Never in our life probably we have seen this kind of Global Crisis…Leading to all countries closed for each other and cities closed for each other …Physically.
OPPORTUNITY this is for Transforming as well. Universe is in a process of Transformation, by way of telling its habitat to be mindful of each other.
Each of us has a choice to have our nervous system be stressed with tension which is prevailing OR choose to consider this as one of the Universe process where we are just observer at one level and can heal others at another level.
Being in acceptance of what is…is first step towards transforming our mental state from Tension to Relaxation.
How do we relax in so much uncertainty and challenges and chaos and problems…It is difficult..I agree for all of us. At another level this is the time to show our resilience and inner strength by way of becoming force which is relaxed hence can help others.
Being in Love with Universe and its processes…this change is also a process. If we do not resist, we will embrace this moment…AND when we embrace this moment…we get strength to help others.
UNIVERSE needs many of its being to be a source of strength and be partner in its Journey of Renewal..which is now happening. While we take all precautions and help others …we do biggest service by having peace within and ACCEPTANCE of WHAT IS.
I wish all a great health and safe relaxed being for all.
QUESTION appears Why on Earth? for What? And why NOW?
INDEED this question came about 32 years back as well.. when I was in high school. And 32 years is a very short period for earth …though a significant one for me or any human.
AS I introspect, I see…learning for me are many in this period… Joy of Being Aware, Joy of having a Purpose…Sadness of not able to give 100 percent to many causes and people. Overwhelming thoughts of despair sometimes and being in Gratitude at other times.
BIRTH in a small town in center of India known as Gwalior…And than moving to Bangalore for first Job..and Now working on mission to make 10 Million people happy in coming 9 years…Journey is fascinating and challenging.
I stated seeing each day as New Learning Chapter on this Earth School and Excitement is enormous each day for next day is waited with curiosity. Teacher is different each day and classes are at different places. One day teacher is my colleague and other day is my daughter…one day teacher is my wife and other day is old friend who is now no more!
PLACES are also teacher sometimes as each has its own history and present. Books are teaching me what other have learnt in this school.
AND When we see our life as student on Planet earth…Learning never stops and Death is just last lesson prior to Graduation.
Cherishing each moment and being happy NOW is key to Learn and graduate…Our Consciousness as Parents is Watching our Experience and Learning each day…Love is Language in which our parents speak to their beautiful children..me and you.
We Humans are not created to be Robot who spends life energy in activities which leads to no elevation of knowledge. Worrying about future is irrelevant for present.
You want to be light and peaceful and have harmony; because its natural to living being. And if we follow natural aspects, excellence in what we do would reflect squarely.
When we argue with what shows up; we get limited. Accept each moment and person as it shows up.
Biggest success for us is we have life and path is full of happiness. Excellence flows when we do look for happiness as outcome but as a way of life. Being happy is not depended on any one else but ourselves.
Mind is like a monkey jumping thoughts from one to another to another. We need to catch it for us to Excel. Focus comes when we catch monkey rather than dancing to tune of wandering thoughts.
Excellence is just nature of us as happiness is.
I believe in one step …small step at a time; because Journey gets easy. Run for what when destination is not there. Be Happy Now!
Postponing happiness is like not being best of you…can we be unhappy anytime?
Lets celebrate life and be cherished for something extraordinary…YOU.
