I am not the kind of person to write such post as I don’t know I am eligible for it or not. Though I am taking a step towards it. So bear with me, if you like it or not I don’t know.
-On this platform I have came across many comments/posts many times in which one is saying that:- 1. May be we will find or reach god in next birth. 2. We are way behind than other sadhakas (seekers) in comparison to sadhna (spiritual practice) , time, ways, methods etc.
-For those I want to say that in sky Garud (Lord Vishnu’s Vehicle) also flies and mosquito also. Now if mosquito thinks that OMG! Garud is flying at such a great speed , how can I fly? And why should I fly? Then this is wrong. He should fly at his own strength .
-First make a goal of what you have to do? Then that sadhna/ spiritual practice will automatically take you up there. If you are not having a goal then as a plodder revolve day and night but do not reach anywhere , you will also reach nowhere.
-The looseness is of goal not of sadhna/ spiritual practice. Also in the BhagwadGita krishna says
कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेसषु कदाचन ।
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते संगोसत्वकर्मणि ।।
Translation :- You certainly have the right to prescribed duties only, but never with their results. You should never be motivated by the results of your actions, nor should there be any attachment in not doing your prescribed duties.
-If you have any desire , left it to god and live like a child ( as a child behaves in front of Lord ).
– If we see shashtras (ethology) , and those symptoms if not occurred in ours then we will lost in despair. For eg. In same Gita it is written that:-
मनुष्याणां सहस्रेषु कश्चिद्यतति सिद्धये ।
यततामपि सिद्धानां कश्चिन्मां वेत्ति तत्त्वत: ।।
Translation :- Amongst thousands of persons, hardly one strives for perfection; and amongst those who have achieved perfection, hardly one knows me in truth.
– When we read such talks we lost in despair and become sad on the spiritual path. BUT do not got disappointed because all things are not for everyone.
– If we got disappointed even if God meet with us than this is not good for us. Nirasha / Despair is a very big obstacle And never think that in this birth we will do little by little and in next birth will reach our goal. Don’t tie such terms. Set your goal and go as fast as you can, if death also comes there is no problem because our insurance is already done. (Remembering every second god is insurance)
– Also never thought in your heart that this is not in our destiny. WE MAKE DESTINY . Destiny will create a obstacle or some disease BUT is not able to create a hurdle in our way. Fate is not much capable to cause us forget Lord.
