One step closer to Brahma Gyaan

One step closer to Brahma gyan:::: A 'devotee' goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to the Temple . 'I've gone for 30 years now, he wrote, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 mantras. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the Gurus are wasting theirs by giving services at all. This started a real controversy in the 'Letters to the Editor' column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher: I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this... They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to the Temple for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today! When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment! ------------------------------ So easy to beat yourself up over mistakes you've made. So many amongst us live in the past rather than loving the present and building a brilliant future. Some people stay stuck for years over something they did or a failure they've experienced. Sad. A life is a terrible thing to waste. But let me ask you a question: "is there really such a thing as a mistake?" First of all, no one tries to fail or mess things up. Every one of us wakes up in the morning, walks out into the world and does the best we can do based on what we know and the skills we have. But even more importantly, every so-called "mistake' is actually a rich source of learning. An opportunity to build more awareness and understanding and gain precious experience. Experience that will help us do, feel and be even better. So, just maybe, there are no mistakes. Just maybe what we could call failures are actually growth lessons in wolf's clothing. And just maybe the person who experiences the most wins. ---------------------- A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to Leave the examination room and said, 'Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.' Very quietly, the doctor said, 'I don't know.' 'You don't know? You, a Christian man, Do not know what is on the other side?' The doctor was holding the handle of the door; On the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, And as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room And leaped on him with an eager show of gladness. Turning to the patient, the doctor said, 'Did you notice my dog? He's never been in this room before. He didn't know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, And when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, But I do know one thing... I know my Master is there and that is enough.' ------------------------------- A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her. The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised. That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn't sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble. Moral of the story: If you don't give your hundred percent in a relationship, you'll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent.. This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship, friendship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully ---------------------- The tragedy of life is not death,but what we let die inside us while we live.When u were born,the world rejoiced while u cried,-live ur life in such a way that when you die,-the world cries while u rejoice.. -------------------------------- Your days are your life in miniature. As you live your days, so you craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you think, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny รข€“ shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for. There's no such thing as an unimportant day. Each of us is called to greatness. Each of us has an exquisite power within us. But for this power to grow, we need to use it. The more you exercise it each day, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you grow. The best among us are not more gifted than the rest. They just take small steps each day as they march towards their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary. ----------------------------- If you can not respect , love , care about ,stand by or be honest with your own parents ,-who gave birth to you and were the very first people who fell in love with you -- then whether you accept this or not but you do not love anyone else in this world either with all your heart and soul ....and time will show that none of your children will stand by you either- when you will need them the most.. ----------------------------------- If you sit with a person who is smoking, even without ur knowledge- You will end up inhaling second hand smoke.In the same way, if you be in the company of saints who constantly preach about the importance of doing good karma-, automatically even without ur knowledge- u will end up doing a lot of positive and humble deeds. If you be in the company of a person who keeps saying bad words and abusing others then then obviously whether u like it or not -- u will end up being the same kind of person sooner or later. And if u constantly listen to Gods name, his praises, his bhajans-even without you being aware of it - the words that will come out of your mouth will be nothing but the nectar of love and bliss. So be in the company of God and even without your knowledge-You will find him seated in your heart - talking to you and finding solutions to ur problems and worries.You just need to take one step towards Him and He will take 100 steps towards you.. By Deepa H inspired by Sai -------------------------------------------- Always tell someone that you love them because you never know what day Will be their last, or your own. Always seek to resolve your problems or disagreements with loved ones Because if either of you should pass on before, the one who is left alive will have the rest of their life to ponder those unresolved feelings but will never find closure. And closure usually brings Peace... ......................................................................................With lots of good wishes and regards to all from Deepa H and family [ debu7366@yahoo.com ] ...............May Sai always give us peace of mind and May he always make us feel His presence where ever we go....

Fight The Monster
Sat Guru Nanak Dev ji says 'MAN JEETEH JAG JEET'
By conquoring your mind you have truly conquored this world.
FIGHT THE MONSTER 'I'M BORED!
PARENTS ARE BORING!
TEACHERS ARE BORING!
TV IS BORING?
INDIAN FOOD IS BORING!
PRAYING IS BORING!
LIFE IS BORING BORING BORING!
Sound familiar? Well, if you get bored then that is great, I'm really happy that you have felt that way. I hope you were so bored that you felt like your head was going to explode. If you've been frustrated with boredom then you've stepped in the furious fire, you've seen the face of your enemy. Now you know who your real enemy is. It's your own mind. It's not the TV, its not your parents its not your teachers, its not your religion its your own mind. You thought your problems were caused by other people, but your real enemy was sitting inside your head all of the time!
The mind is like a huge, hungry monster which runs around out of control like a dinosaur from Jurrassic Park. It roars like thunder, demanding to be fed all the time. If we don't feed it then it gets bored and makes us feel frustrated. It wants to sink its sharp fangs into interesting things, it wants our eyes to be fed with videos and Television and pictures of blood and killing and action and sex. It wants our ears to be fed with loud angry music, it wants to hear funny jokes. It wants our tongue to swim around in tasty food: chinese , italian, indian , sweets ,chocalate, ice cream - FEED ME! FEED ME! It's screaming at us all the time. The monster-mind wants our body to have sex, to talk sex and to read about sexy newspaper stories, all the time it thinks of sex, it even makes us dream of sex. It wants to drink and smoke it doesn't care about health it cares about having a good time- it only cares about itself. The monster is sitting inside in each one of our heads demanding to be fed all the time -so we feed it hoping it will let you have some peace and quiet, but it never gets full up it gobbles down your music, TV, sex and food - in no time at all it's bored again and wants to chew some more interesting things. It tells us that we can't be happy unless we get a girlfriend/boyfriend and that's really exiting but the monster chews that relationship up and spits it out, and the mind runs after another partner and another, again and again it gets bored.
Take a look at what we do, as soon as the monster-mind gets bored we get up and turn on the TV, but that gets boring so we hire a video, but thats gets boring so we order a Pizza with extra cheese, but that gets boring so we go out with our friends. Eventually we have to come home and be by ourself. Alone in the room, nothing to do - we can't stand to be by ourself for even 10 minutes its boring, so we play some music, read a book play a computer game. What does that tell you about our nature ?- we're so boring that we can't even stand our own company! If we ever end up forced to keep your own company then the monster-mind starts feeding on our thoughts. It tells us that we are bored and its our teachers fault or our religions fault or our parents fault. It starts chewing u tell it that we were no longer going to be its slave. From now on we would only serve the True Master - Wonderful God.
At the Guru's time, the Moghuls were Turks who converted to Islam, but they got bored of being good Muslims who lived by God's will. They conquored many countries, they raped women and took them away as slaves they burnt villages to the ground - they conquored half the world, they forced people to convert to Islam, but they never conquered their Monstermind. They were always slaves of the monster. But, many of the Holy Indians were not any better, they were bored of being good Hindus, they pretended to pray so people gave them food, clothes and money.
Read the following story of Guru Nanak ji and Sajjan Tug and you'll see what kind people become if they don't fight their monster mind.
Sajjan was a murdering, prieslty thief. He ran an inn for travellers and had several people working for him. They would lure travellers to the Inn and Sajjan,which means friend, tried his best to befriend the innocent travellers. If the guests were Hindu, Sajjan Tug would dress as a Hindu saint and pray, the travellers would feel they were at a friendly place then at night he'd have them killed. If a Muslim came, then he would dress as a Muslim and pray, the traveller would feel safe but Sajjan would have them killed as well. Sajjan pretended to be everyones friend, but only so he could steal their belongings.
When Guru Nanak ji came, Sajjan was rubbing his greedy-hands with exitement for he thought Guru Nanak must be a great King, Guru Nanak ji's face was happy and glowing, he walked with a smile and a song - Sajjan thought only someone who had so much money that they didn't need to worry about it could be as happy as Guru Nanak ji. Naturally, Sajjan wanted to be this happy King's friend.
Sajjan quickly made a royal court with a special throne for the King to sit on. Guru Nanak ji played along with Sajjan's game, for God had told Guru Nanak ji what kind of friend Sajjan really was. Sajjan sent in a dancing girl- he knew all kings loved dancing girls and surely this would please this happy King. Sajjan thought the girl could lure the King to bed and when this rich King fell asleep they would kill him. But, Guru Nanak ji asked the girl, what are you doing? Where is your honour and self-respect? Do not misuse your body - your body was given to you for praising your True Master by doing paat and simran. The Guru's words had a deep effect on the girl she told Sajjan I'm no longer working for you -you are not my Master any more you made me do a lot of bad things.
Sajjan was as mad as hell, and he quickly sent in another worker. The new plan was that they would get the rich King drunk so that when he become unconscious they could kill him and steal all of his money. But, Guru Nanak ji said I have no need to drink your wine, for the wine of God's Name is always intoxicating me. The man left deeply effected by Guru ji and he too told Sajjan I am no longer your slave, I will not do bad things for you any more.
Sajjan was even madder now, he thought he would have to conquor this King himself, so he created a tasty dish but poisoned it so Guru ji would die and he could steal his belongings. But, Wonderful God protects his saints and sent the word of God to Guru Nanak ji. Guru Nanak ji sang to Sajjan - the real Sajjan (friend) is the one who never deserts you & stands by you in God's court, but you are like dirty-metal which when you rub it with a cloth gets shiny but only gives the cloth blackness meaning Sajjan smiled shinily to the travellers but the only thing that rubbed off on them from his friendship was his dirty murdering actions. Guru ji continued singing Gods message: you are like the crane which looks holy, dressed in white but rips the flesh of the creatures it eats. Sajjan Tug fell to his knees tears in his eyes, he couldn't hide his sins from God. Sajjan repented by gaving his life to Guru ji by taking amrit. He stopped following what his monster-mind was tel without getting bored. The person who has escaped from the jaws of the monster-mind and has also tamed it, is one in millions ,a blessed person who can sit with their Creator without getting bored. Guru Nanak ji's blessings fill their mind with love for God. That person is known as a saint and throughout Creation the glories of that being are eternally sung. Whenever you start getting bored, or depressed or sad, fight the monster by firstly, begging to Guru Nanak ji for his blessings to begin the battle, then sing Vaahi-guroo and feel the Wonderful God's love and warmth pouring into you. Do this each and everyday, more and more. In this way you will be gradually conquoring your mind and within a matter of years you will have truly conquored the world.
Short And purposeful life is better than A worthless long life
Life is like a water-bubble. But philanthropic pursuits and prayers to God would direct us to reach Him. This mundane world may end up, but the Will of God is eternal. All the external embellishments are momentary, except the invisible and eternal Omnipotent Universal Power of God. The cycle of birth and death recurs as per the divine will. Therefore, every individual must lead a purposeful life, love everyone and spend time in Godly thoughts. "Loving neighbors is virtue, harming others is sin", is the message one finds in the scriptures. In a bid to save Sita, bird Jatayu fought with Ravana and sacrified its life. Though Ravana lived a long life, he met a ghastly end. The short-lived life of Jatayu is thus an example of a noble life of self-sacrifice for a better cause rather than living a long, worthless life.One has to totally surrender to God instead of wasting time to fulfil worldly pleasures. A little bit of service we render will be priceless in the eyes of God. A short-lived, purposeful life is far better than a worthless, long life. One should not count the years one lived, but how the years were spent. Serving the needy and compassion for one and all would draw us more closer to God. Better to live like a swan for a short span rather than a long-living crow.
Quote of BABA:
Those who are attached to me heart and soul, will naturally feel happiness when they hear My stories.
