Godlike Patience

Why is patience so important?
Because it makes us pay attention. – Paulo Coelho.

Insightful!

All of us have heard that patience is a bitter plant, but it has a sweet fruit. We have heard and we say…keep patience..have patience. But, patience does not mean mere waiting.

Patience is an opportunity to focus. Patience means knowing the purpose of waiting. Patience means a healthy attitude towards circumstances.

With this understanding patience doesn’t remain bitter; it becomes curiosity, hope, enthusiasm…it becomes a sweet fruit in itself. It allows us to enjoy the journey. We can shift our attention from the reward and keep it on the process.

In this way, patience doesn’t merely bring sweeter results for us. It brings a wonderful byproduct than the end result. It makes our being more beautiful. Without patience, spiritual growth is an illusion. With patience, it becomes a certainty.

Let us demonstrate Godlike patience to discover the precious gifts of life.

Let God

When a man forgets himself, he usually does something everybody else remembers. – James Coco – 1930-1987, Actor
This is so striking! Each and every thing we consider worth remembering had bloomed from the moment of merger….merger of the doer, the thing done and the source of inspiration. There was no separation. In fact, the doer was not really doing but simply allowing.

There was no concern for the outcome. There was no thought about the reward. The engrossing was so rewarding, so fulfilling, that the end result did not attract any focus. The end result was awe-inspiring for those who saw it. The end result contributed in the history of civilisation.

Love and passion allow us to merge with the doing. The ‘I’ disappears and the creation takes a magnificent form. Remember to forget yourself more often. Let Go and Let God.

Revolution

Revolution, total revolution, implies experimenting with the impossible. And when an individual takes a step in the direction of the new, the impossible, the whole human race travels through that individual. – Vimala Thakar

This is really encouraging! Many a time we find a vision which seems too big and impossible. And we think “how can I accomplish it all alone?” We mistakenly think that it is our wishful thinking…imaginary. But, that’s why the power of imagination is granted to us. The vision should inspire us.

However, we trust our conditioned thoughts more than the the vision, the inspiration. Only the visionaries have brought about revolutions by trusting the seed of the new…the impossible. They defied the prevalent beliefs. They were alone when they took the first step. But, the vision gave them the magnetic​ power of attracting followers.

The queue always starts with one. There is nothing wrong in following the visionary. But, we should not shun our inspirations for seeming impossible​. Just one step…it could be just penning down the idea..but we should do it. Rest will be taken care of.

From belief to faith

Faith is the stepping stone to creation…

Faith can connect the dots. Faith can synchronize acausal events. Faith is the breath that gives life to dreams and visions.
Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. – Saint Augustine

Faith is the Apex in which all beliefs culminate. Belief is the starting point of faith. Because when you believe in something or someone or even yourself, you will get proofs to support your beliefs. Proofs do not just show up. If we wait for proofs to show up to form a belief, we will have to wait till eternity. When we believe, the proofs appear to support and gradually we reach a point of unwavering faith which Kahlil Gibran describes thus:
Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.

Nothing remains to be done…

When love is there, nothing remains to be done. – Vimala Thakar

We do a lot of things and say that “I am doing this out of love….for love… because of love…and so on..” Where do we intend to go..what do we wish to achieve by doing?

The goal we truly desire to achieve is Love. The feeling we want to experience is Love. The place where we all deeply yearn to go is Love. But, even after finding Love we do not stop and stay there.

There is nothing wrong in doing. It is the passion of doing that takes us astray. Our doing should be an expression of the Love that we have found…whether we find it in a person or a purpose or vision.

And then there is no struggle. It is just an experience being re-created with every action we take. Nothing is needed to ‘be done’ for Love. Our ‘being’ in Love is enough.

When Love is there, God is realized.

Right, fair and kind

It is good to be right. It is better to be fair. It is best to be kind. To quote Dr. Wayne Dyer: Whenever there is a choice between being right and being kind choose kind.

But, sometimes we get trapped in being right. There is someone who is bent upon proving to us that we are wrong. Then, it becomes our mission to prove that we are right. We do not only try to convince that someone that we are right, but we keep seeking approval from others to strengthen our ‘rightness’. When we get such approval the ego feels soothed. But, if even a single individual disapproves, the ego gets ferocious. It can’t stand opposition.

There is nothing wrong in being right. But, there is a big difference in ‘being right’ and ‘being accepted by others as being right’. This approval seeking can make us unfair and unkind. This is our loss.

Should it not be enough that we know that we are right? Is it really possible to convince the whole world? And why should we give so much importance to being right…after all it’s just a perspective! Let’s commence today the transcendence of right and wrong to reach the Realm of God.

Something is there taking care…

Who reminds you to breathe and to beat your heart? Something is there, taking care…- Mooji

Something is there taking care…
Do not worry just dare…
Live lively and do not scare…
You need some moments to spare…
For the people nice and rare…
Allow the Soul to lay bare…
Don’t hold it simply share…
Enjoy everything don’t compare…
Be wild and passionate like a mare…
Don’t chicken out, do hare…
Then pause to be still and stare…
The world is not out there…
It’s within the body YOU wear…

Something is there taking care….
