Like a fresh flower with dew drops, life is so precious. Human form has come after crossing 84, 00,000 life forms. These days we see many ending their lives unable to cope up with small disappointments in life. We have to work hard irrespective of results and public recognition is immaterial. You may consider this opinion as ridiculous but all great works are recognized at some point of time. Some were earlier and some at later date. We can see success garland many great people at late age and some refined works are recognized by public when the doer passed away. The successful US president Abraham Lincoln had success at 50 plus. Swami Prabhupada started Hare Krishna movement at 69 years. Peter Roget published Thesaurus at 73. Gregor Johann Mendel “Father of Modern Genetics.”, Painter Vincent Van Gogh, Writer Emily Dickinson and many others got popularity for their works after their death.
What we have to learn from great men who became great by their deeds is their patience and they worked relentlessly for a mission and they never cared for the result. They contributed to mankind in their own way. We see frustration in present generation. They fail to take small failures. Some end up their lives and some struck with depression and prone to harmful addictions. Here, comes the importance of adapting spiritual philosophy in day to day life. Philosophy helps in keeping the mind calm. The philosophic person habituates to patience, will be stress free and stays away from depression.
A child is born free, fearless and naturally spiritual. At young age, if one learns philosophy, the individual becomes stable, understands the beauty of life and enjoys the true bliss of human life. So, every parent should infuse spirituality to child’s mind and help him elevate as a total being.
With patience if one continues to grow in life and who knows what he is going to achieve and contribute to mankind. So, learn to live and live beautifully in true spirits of life.
Civilization and sophistication go hand in hand. With progress in technology and working styles we learn many new things in life. Modern education and corporate sector trains us to speak nicely. All good things are happening in life with changing days, life styles and seasons. But still violence is out bursting. There is lot of violence and unrest in the world. That’s outside world. What about inner world of persons? Daily we hear many known diseases like cancer, ulcer, hyper tension, diabetes and n number of unknown diseases. It is because of mismatch in aspirations and achievements. Some disappointments are running in minds and the state of mind is lacking satisfaction. We need to seriously think about our strengths and weaknesses. Then an assessment regarding our personal caliber is to be calculated and with that we have to set targets in life. A balance is to be maintained in life regarding our aspirations and achievements. Then we can have contentment in life. This is one set and another main problem we have is about relations and relational crisis. When one doesn’t have good relations, their heart hurts and serious physical problems occur in life. In one way or other way life exhibits problems. It is in our wisdom to tackle our problem and lead a cheerful life. It is possible through the knowledge of philosophy as it is an art of living. Many people think spirituality and philosophy are the subjects of old age. But that’s not true. They let us learn basics of life.
Observe self: make it a practice
Every day meditation helps relieve stress. That will also help in understanding self. If you can understand yourself then 99.9% life will be at ease. That’s why the knowledge of self is necessary. Inner world can be understood by meditation. Join in any form of meditation and practice to arrest known and unknown inner violence. You can simply do this exercise. Sit in quiet place with spine straight and body relaxed. Close your eyes. Sit in silence. Observe yourself. Let thoughts flow. Observe them till they end. After all thoughts, at one point of time, mind attains silence. All thought waves merge into silence. That silence rejuvenates body, mind and soul. Continue this practice…you will understand yourself and achieve peace. At this state you are above inner violence. You observe your inner thoughts and understand self created turbulence patterns. You can easily manage yourself and always cherish peace and bliss. This is what Lord Krishna says “Be in this world but live untouched by all the happenings”.
When you live with awareness you will be untouched by surrounding people’s attitudes, circumstances and happenings in life. So, meditate and lead a healthy bliss filled life
I wish all be blessed with peace and self realization.
A child is adventurous, explores world, smiles at everything unless he/she is hurt. Inside we can see wonderful natural learning capability. Given a chance, without confusion a child can learn ‘n’ number of languages. Simply one needs to learn “how to live” concepts from a child. Pure intelligence and absolute mind works in children. Through early childhood impressions psychological personality develops in them. So, childhood experiences play an important role in shaping their personality.
It is prime duty of the mother to dedicate her time to young offspring’s as she is the first mentor. All prime spiritual books; religions give her first position in a child’s life. It is said God sends mother to take care of his beloved incarnated soul within a physical. Matru devo bhava; pithru devo bhava; acharya devo bhava; in this phrase also mother’s position is supreme. What is the responsibility of a mother? She is the first Guru. She can mould a child into a role model person. All the stories that she teaches child are life term gifts. They carve the person’s psychology. The behavior, language and every minute thing is observed by children and is adopted as they are the best observers and imitators. Thus children are the extensions of parents.
Many feel that spirituality and philosophy are the subjects to be taken at a later stage of old age. But it is not right. With spiritual knowledge we can learn life principles and art of living. We transform as better persons. We know how to build and maintain good human relations. Our performance levels increase. It is very important to learn these subjects at a young age as time is finite and life is time bound. With philosophic knowledge we can explore life with enthusiasm and enjoy it full extent and can live with bliss. A child will have an added advantage, if they are trained in this field at a young age. Mentoring is easy at young age as their receptive levels are high So it becomes the responsibility of mother to expose the child at an early age to spirituality as it is a science of art of living and guides the child through the path of wisdom and purity. The early training tends them to be much disciplined, respect culture, tradition and have universal mind with broad outlook.
These days demand for old age homes are rising. Children are failing to take care of their old parents. Such situation will never arise if at a young age they are trained in spirituality. Spirituality blooms compassion, pure love, service attitude and lets a being to understand responsibility. Being in samsara (worldly affairs) the sadhaka’s (practitioners) can enjoy the eternal bliss. Spirituality lets one to understand self as well as others, surroundings and circumstances.
So groom child with spirituality and train him/her to live with responsibility as true independency rests with responsible behavior.
I wish all human beings be blessed by almighty with pure love, light and peace.
