Love is Your Very Existence

Subscribe to Knowledge Sheet

Suppose someone shows a lot of love to you, what do you do?

Often you do not know how to respond.
You feel obliged and bound.
Shrink or shy away.
Feel foolish and awkward.
Try to reciprocate even though it is not genuine.
Doubt the love expressed and ones own worthiness.
You are afraid of losing respect because love does not allow distance and respect tends to keep distance.
Your ego hardens and does not allow you to receive and reciprocate.

The ability to receive genuine love comes with the ability to give love. The more you are centered and by experience, know that you are love, the more you feel at home with any amount of love being expressed in any manner, for deep inside, you know : Love is not an emotion! It is your very existence!

Why to Convert the Bad into Good?

Subscribe to Knowledge Sheet

Why to Convert the Bad into Good?

Our nature is to help. Our nature is to bring light. Our nature is to bring comfort to others, and make everyone feel happy. We can’t be in anyway different from that.

If you ask alum, 'Why do you clean the water?' It will say, 'It is in my nature'.
If you ask Sun, 'Why do give light to people?' It will say, 'That is my nature'.
If you ask a star, 'Why you twinkle in sky? It doesn’t help anybody'. It will say, 'That it is in my nature, to twinkle'.

So it is our nature to help others, and to bring comfort to life.

Every individual is in search of happiness. Even people who are doing bad things, are doing it in search of happiness. It is just that they don’t know that they won’t get it. If they knew that they won't get happiness by doing bad things, they would never do it. They are doing all the wrong things simply because they do not know that they won’t be able to get happiness out of it. So it is our job to make them aware, 'See, if you keep doing all these wrong things, you are only going to get more miserable. It is better that you do good things, then you will be happy'.

Love for The Country and The Humanity - Is it Possible?

Subscribe to Knowledge Sheet

I do not see any conflict between the two. One can have love for one's own country, and at the same time have love for humanity. You can do both.

It is just like how a family person serves his family, but at the time also comes out and serves the society. It is not that if you are into social service, you must neglect your family. That is not right. You have to do both, you have to attend to the family and also do your social service.
Now, if a family member is upset for no reason, then what can you do. But from you side, you should make sure that you do not do anything to upset anyone.

In the same way, you can serve the country, and also be part of a One World Family.

Moreover, hating somebody is not patriotism. Patriotism does not mean that you are against the others. You not against anybody, but at the same time you protect your country, and work towards its development.

It is okay to consult Vastushastra (the ancient Indian science of space and architecture) before you construct a new home. But if there is some dosha (here meaning an anomaly in the land or the type of construction), simply chant Om Namaha Shivaya. Chanting this one mantra is enough to remove any negativity and any type of problems you may face.

You know, being in devotion removes all obstacles in one’s way. By being sincere in your Seva, Sadhana and Satsang, all problems get removed, and negativity disappears. This is why mantras like Om Namaha Shivaya and the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra are so great. They have the power to remove all your problems and any negativity that may come your way.

Guidance on Earning Money

Subscribe to Knowledge Sheet

See, put in all your efforts and earn as much as you can. But follow certain rules. It is not right to earn money by committing crimes, or through any other wrong means.
If you do, then the result will only be misery and suffering. If you adopt wrong means to earn money, then your own conscience will prick you from within, and you will feel, 'I have stolen from someone'. It will pinch you from within.

So do not use wrong means of earning money. You should put in all your effort to earn money, making the best use of time available to you.
