Jai Guru Dev Beloved Divine Friends

Let Go
Usually we tend to let go of pleasant emotions and cling to the unpleasant ones. Ninety nine percent of the world's population is prone to doing this. But when the consciousness becomes free and cultured with meditation, the tendency of holding onto negative emotions is the first thing to disappear. We start living in "the moment" and let go of "the past". This is important because no matter how good the people we interact with are, there are bound to be misunderstandings in any relationship. Once a little misunderstanding crops up, our emotions get distorted and a host of negativities follow. If we are able to let go and focus on the ability of consciousness to revel in the glory of every moment, we are shielded from all the above. The truth that every moment is supportive and complementary to our growth dawns on us. Thus, attaining higher states of consciousness does not require any complicated strategy; one just needs to learn to let go

Divine Qualities
Our human body is made to bring heaven on this earth, it is meant to bring sweetness into this world, not to spill venom. It is easy to disparage someone, but it takes some guts, some intelligence, and some courage to uplift people, to bring out the Divine quality in those around you. By bringing out Divine qualities in others, you will see the Divinity deep inside you.

You only see the fall of the water. You don’t see how the Ocean becomes the Cloud. The ocean becoming the cloud is a secret, but the cloud becoming the ocean is obvious. In the world only a few can notice your inner growth and height, but your outer expressions are apparent. Never brood that people don’t understand you. They can only see your expression.

Wake up and realize this is all made up of thoughts, just thoughts, just thoughts. Your appreciation of beauty is a thought, your aversion to an object that is ugly is a thought. Your craving or aversion is nothing but a passing thought in the mind. Realize this is just a thought and you will be free

It is awareness that filters the outer negative influences and it is awareness that corrects and annihilates the unhealthy inner tendencies. The purpose of education is to develop this awareness so that you can be selective about your tendencies and influences. It is practically impossible to resist the external influences and the inner tendencies without raising one’s consciousness.

Before pointing out a person’s mistake, see whether your comments will help to improve the situation, foster love, or bring harmony. Think about the usefulness of your comments. A magnanimous person does not point out the mistakes of others and make them feel guilty. Instead, they correct others mistakes with compassion and care, not through words but through their attitude.

Self Image
What stands between you and me is your self image. Your self-image restricts you from being me. Self image whether good or bad causes misery. When you think good about yourself in a very subtle manner you think bad about others. Then anger, jealousy, hatred everything follows. When you think bad about yourself you feel low and again you start getting angry and you hate everyone else. So drop your self image.

With Warm Regards
Lakshmi Narayanan
