I am sure a lot of us have taken a sauna bath. Just want to take you through the experience.
You enter the sauna room. The door is closed and the heating system is switched on. It’s usually dark in there and that dim red light doesn’t really help the cause. You can see the artificial coal burning which is actually producing heat. Slowly the temperature rises and so does your restlessness. Your body begins to perspirate and with that comes the uneasy feeling of clamminess and that feeling of “when will it end,when will it end”. There is nothing that can divert your mind from the heat, not even for a minute, some quit and some hold on to completely go through to bath. And finally the door opens bringing in the outer air inside which is though at room temperature but feels so cool because of all that you have been through for the past twenty minutes.
Quite a few go through the same experience every day when their conditioned mind takes over them and there is a disconnect with their heart. The artificial coal is our brain. When we shun our hearts (step in and close the door) it is going to become dark and when the mind takes over ( switching on the artificial coal burner) we are bound to lose our peace of mind. That uneasiness steps in and nothing seems nice. When there is no peace with in me, I am vulnerable and I will create a ruckus in the lives of all those who are connected to me. Think for yourself, generally problem starts with one person and then it spreads. One becomes prone to fear, insecurity, too possessive about any small thing, mood swings etcetra.
The problem is we believe peace of mind comes from mind itself. Actually, it comes from your heart. When one’s mind is alligned with one’s heart he will feel peace of mind. That is where the key lies. We have to connect to our heart ( open the door) to solve the problem ( let the cool air enter). But the mind is a master in its trade.
It will come up with all sorts of thoughts and stories to make you believe that all these are only tricks. You have to be watchful and aware of your mind. Don’t leave your heart, or you lose your peace.
Open the door( pray to which ever form of Divine you connect with for intervention) and enjoy the beautiful calming and soothing air ( Divine Grace).
We were lodged in a nice Hotel in Ludhiana for a few days owing to a family function. In one of those days I misplaced the key to my room. We called up the reception for help and they sent a guest attendant with the Master Key. My nephew inquired and the attendant replied that A Master Key can open any room in the hotel.
Well that was enough for an insight.
People have only heard about master keys with regard to rooms or locks,there is one to life also.
DADASHREEJI NAMO NAMAH.
THIS IS THE MASTER KEY TO LIFE.
No matter where you are,what ever time it is chant it and experience yourself connect to your Divine. This is the solution to all problems. Apply it to which ever situation you feel like and see how everything is taken care of. Chant it, be at it and you will not suffer again. I may not be able to use the right words,but everything just comes together and life becomes as smooth as silk.
Don’t go by what I say, try it for yourself. Chant it, feel every word that you chant and observe the change in your self. Dada is here to boost divinity in everyone and establish and strengthen the bond of everyone with their own Divine. If you don’t do it already, please try atleast once. You will start loving your life.
It was 28th December and we were at our ever so beautiful ShantiKshetra PremGiri Aashram in Karjat. We were 30 odd youth who decided to go trekking up the hill. One of us knew the way and none of us knew how long it would take to complete the trek. So according to our limited understandings, we packed our backpacks with all that we thought we would require and left for the trek in the morning to avoid noon heat.
We hadn’t even reached the spot when we realised that most of us were out of drinking water and since it was a dry season,there were no waterfalls too. We realised the value of water when one of us spotted a very thin flimsy stream of fresh water dripping down nearby, which by the look of it, suggested it would take forever to fill our bottles, and all of us queued up to refill.
The trekking was steep and tiresome. It took us more than eight hours to complete the whole thing. We had carried extra clothing, trekking sticks, books and what not but none of us carried enough of what was most essential…. WATER. And then my Dada gave me an insight like He always does.
In life too, we undergo so many trainings, courses, schooling, higher education and so much more but is all that essential? We might say that they are basic requirements but what is the most important component?
It’s Love. I wouldn’t call it a life if you didn’t live with Love in your Heart and quite often than not, we forget it. It’s there, it’s always there but we forget to acknowledge it. Experiment it. Apply Love to which ever situation you are in,and watch the magic, witness the most beautiful things unfold in front of you. Let your life be guided by Love. like they say- you only need power to dominate. Rest, Love can handle.
Thank you Dada for everything and much more.
