By Life Positive January 2009 As the present civilisation collapses, and a new age prepares to rise from its ashes, our collective pain is immense. How can we thrive through these times? The great gurus teach us the way forward.” Divine fusion for peace Divine fusion for peace Guru Shri Nimishananda, Founder and Spiritual Head, Shri Nimishananda Ashram, MalaysiaThe hard facts of real life loom large and confront us from newspapers and news channels every morning – a new crisis, terrorist activity in some part of the world – images, which are not conducive or healthy to our mind and hearts. Instead of experiencing more peace, happiness, and positive vibrations every day, we find that we are generating more fear and uncertainty. The mind needs to realise the divinity within, by having faith, belief and trust in Divinity itself. God sees no difference between living beings. He offers every being his unconditional protection and refuge. He provides space for all creatures under his roof that is the earth itself. He is one with all beings. He is constantly telling us: “Live and let live.” This is called ‘dharma’ or ethical living in accordance with the cosmic law. Unfortunately, 90 per cent of us are not following the teachings and wisdom of our ancient seers and sages today, becoming destructive instead of being constructive for the welfare of everybody. In short, we are not conscious of the divine fusion within us. We should let go of our selfish motives, like asking what the world has done for us today. Instead, we should question ourselves – what have we given to the world today for its welfare? What have I contributed today through a good thought, a good deed, or a good action? This thinking will lead to good and noble thoughts, which start giving us a great amount of joy, happiness, and tranquillity and removes all negative thoughts and destructive tendencies. We must live in the world, and yet remain detached by not becoming possessive about it. That is the key to a good and a noble, successful and a healthy, enriched life. That was how ‘ahimsa’ (non-injury) was established. Love one and all unconditionally. We will then not only feel divinity, but also generate and release divine vibrations from us to the whole world. This way we can effectively counter negativity and establish peace and happiness in other people’s mind and hearts. We can thus establish universal peace, love, and bliss in ourselves, and learn to pray universally. As we do this, we draw ourselves closer to Divinity and generate peace and happiness everywhere. Difficulties are a part of Divine surgery-Swami Sukhabodhananda Difficulties are a part of Divine surgerySwami Sukhabodhananda, Founder, Prasanna Trust, BangaloreA spiritual value that one has to imbibe irrespective of what religion a person belongs to is – all difficulties are a part of Divine surgery. If one treats difficulties as a part of Nature trying to educate us, then one should be open to receive new learning. Openness should be our mantra of wise living. Openness with the direction of transformation should be our goal. We are not in harmony with the external world because we have not learnt to live in harmony with our needs, our emotions, and our minds. One has to search for what Existence wants us to learn constantly.Global issues like food crisis or spiralling of cost of fuel is a symptom of reckless usage of natural resources born out of people’s greed. As Mahatma Gandhi said, “There is sufficiency in the world for man’s need and not for man’s greed.” When one operates out of greed, one acquires wealth disproportionately, thus coming in the way of equal distribution among many. Greed to be somebody and the fear of being nobody’ is the greatest fear and evil one has to renounce. People live in fear; hence, there is inner disorder which reflects in the external disorder. Communal disharmony around us is due to operating from inner hurt. Sometime or the other, one faces some unfairness in life. Instead of accepting and educating each other, this unfairness lives in us as hurt and fills our minds. Then they get amplified by our imaginations and fears. These hurts, with its associations and amplifications, creates disharmony within and outside. This is the genesis of communal disharmony.Terrorism exists mostly in ignorant and misguided minds. The body and mind of religion will vary but the soul of religion is common – seeing oneness, operating from love, learning to forgive, learning to love God’s creation. Media and inter-religious forums should be educating and creating a dialogue with religious communities, accepting certain unfairness and working to change such unfairness. They should have patience until the change occurs. Over all, education in the true sense of the term should be emphasised. The practice of meditation in whatever form to keep the mind calm and not agitated is one of the true solutions to the multi-faceted problems that challenge us today. Calamities make way for transformation-Gurumatha Amma Calamities make way for transformationGurumatha Amma, , Founder Head, Sreedhara Sreegudda Ashram, BangaloreNature is magnificent in its doing and undoing. What we think of as calamities, are part of the cosmic power of elimination. It may appear tragic and painful, but there is a strong reason and purpose behind it. Nature’s equation, though, cannot be perceived by the ordinary, peripheral, mundane mind. At a physical level nothing can be done – one has to accept it as a part of the play, as a beautiful harmony in nature. We have to look at it as necessary for integration of energy in the cosmic play. Calamities are part of ‘pralaya’ or elimination, initiated to make way for wonderful re-creation and/or transformation. Being part of the whole, each one of us is responsible in our own way and has a role in this cosmic play. One who is concerned about this will discipline his life in wisdom in a healthy way. He approaches life with love in his heart; with silence and innocence.The world is suffering from crises like terrorism due to the violation of nature’s law at the individual level. The thinking man has to evolve to bring out his divinity, which is pure sattva – the essence, to neutralise his rajasic [demon] and tamasic [animal] qualities. Only then, can we serve our own true self. Through this, we can save the world, because our world is nothing but a projection of our own being. Age of transition-Sri Bhagavan Age of transitionSri Bhagavan Founder, Oneness Univercity, Andhra Pradesh. We live in the midst of a transition from one civilisation to another. This new emerging civilisation is characterised by a new culture and values, new modes of relationships and work styles. The world at present is symbolised by scientific and technological advancement on the one hand, and increasing violence and destruction on the other. We are concerned with our own individual survival, our family’s survival, with the survival of our belief, group, and nation and because all this is divisive, it threatens the actual survival of the whole. Ideological differences are at the root of violence and disturbance that is robbing sanity and endangering survival.We are not separate individuals, as we believe. What affects the few, affects all mankind. There is no escape or avoidance. We can no longer withdraw from the totality of the human predicament. It is only during crises or disasters, that we seem to come together; and when they are over, we are back to our old condition. We seem to be incapable of living and working together harmoniously. How can we co-operate when we are concerned with our own problems, our own individual ambitions, and ourselves? There can be no co-operation if all our activities are self-centred.The real solution is therefore to turn our attention inward, and recognise the disturbance within and give way to peace. As long as the self with its needs dominates all our actions, there can be no co-operation, for self-centred thought is partial, narrow and everlastingly divisive. Co-operation demands great honesty. Moreover, honesty is the clear perception of things as they are. The coming few years will see accelerated change in almost every sphere of human life – be it education, governance, health, transportation, or values. In addition, the direction these changes will take increasingly depends on our state of consciousness. Unless and until every man, and every woman take it upon themselves to resolve all division within themselves, their families and their communities, a New Age of harmony, co-operation and togetherness will remain only a possibility. If 64,000 people would awaken to this truth and to higher states of consciousness, we would see the birth of a New Age. In a population of nearly six and a half billion, if 64,000 people would be in a non-divisive state of oneness, the rest of humanity’s consciousness would automatically be impacted. Concerted efforts in this direction by individuals and groups the world over would see this possibility happen. This New Age of sharing, love and joy belongs to you, and it is up to you to make this a reality. 2012 could well be the beginning of a New Age, which itself would take another 100 years to unfold completely.
