Where are you going, “O! traveller” thick darkness has engulfed your mind; just kindle a light.
And that light is of meditation. It is of inspiration. We all were inspired to hear that.
Two pieces of wood produce fire through friction. Through inspiration, that light which is the knowledge of Brahmn will burst forth in the soul. All the scriptures are said to have come through inspiration which is divine and holy.
All the saints and sages have inspiration and showed the light to us. When you walk towards Sun, your shadow runs after you. On the other hand, you run after the shadow if your back is towards Sun. Similar is the case with the desires and the people. The desires themselves are obstacles in achieving them. Same is the case with people:-
भागती फिरती थी दुनिया, जब तलब करते थे हम
अब के जब नफरत हुई तो बेकरार आने को है
The world was running away from us when we desired it. Now when we became indifferent towards the world and got inspired towards our own Self, the world is anxious to come to us.
Here is a quote from Swami Ram Tirath
A poet says:-
“After lifting myself above the desires, all my desires have been accomplished. The desires themselves were obstacles in achieving them”.
A poet says:-
Why are you imploring, requesting others? If you make yourself deserving, others will run after you In their own interest.
THE STONE THAT IS FIT FOR THE WALL CANNOT BE FOUND IN THE WAY.
All this inspires us and is the source of inspiration.
Here is an inspirational quote:-
EVERYTHING HAS BEAUTY BUT NOT EVERYONE CAN SEE
ज़र्रे-ज़र्रे में है झाँकी भगवान की,
किसी सूझ वाली आँख ने पहचान की..
Vision of Almighty is omnipresent but only a rare inner eye can visualise it.
And this inner eye is third eye which opens in Meditation.
Here are few inspirational quotes:-
YOU CAN’T FALL IF YOU DON’T CLIMB
BUT THERE IS NO JOY LIVING
YOUR WHOLE LIFE ON GROUND
CHALLENGES ARE WHAT MAKE LIFE INTERESTING AND OVERCOMING THEM IS WHAT MAKES LIVE MEANINGFUL
NATURE GIVES US INSPIRATION TO MAKE OUR LIVES WORTHWHILE BY SERVING OTHERS.
नदिया ना पिए कभी अपना जल
वृक्ष न खाएं कभी अपना फल
अपने तन का, मन का, धन का दूजों को दे जो दान है
वह सच इंसान है, इस धरती पर भगवान है
Streams never drink their own water, not fruits are ever taken by trees
The man who devotes his life in the service of his fellow beings is the true human being and is God on this earth.
Sun provides light and heat to everyone on this earth. In the same way moon provides peace to everyone.
IF YOU WANT TO LIFT YOURSELF
LIFT UP SOMEONE ELSE
IT IS NOT WHAT YOU DO FOR YOUR CHILDREN
BUT WHAT YOU HAVE TAUGHT THEM TO DO FOR THEMSELVES THAT WILL MAKE THEM SUCCESSFUL HUMAN BEINGS
IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO TURN OUT WELL, SPEND TWICE AS MUCH TIME WITH THEM AND HALF AS MUCH MONEY
IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW SLOWLY YOU GO AS LONG AS YOU DO NOT STOP
IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT YOU HAVE IN LIFE,
YOU’LL ALWAYS HAVE MORE.
IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT YOU DON’T HAVE IN LIFE,
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE ENOUGH.
YOU MAY BE DISAPPOINTED, IF YOU FAIL,
BUT YOU ARE DOOMED, IF YOU DON’T TRY
REMEMBER NO ONE CAN MAKE YOU INFERIOR WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT.
WHEN EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE GOING AGAINST YOU, REMEMBER THAT THE AIRPLANE TAKES OFF AGAINST THE WIND, NOT WITH IT.
EVERYONE WANTS HAPPINESS
NO ONE WANTS PAIN
BUT YOU CAN’T HAVE RAINBOW
WITHOUT A LITTLE RAIN
LIVE INSPIRED, LIVE HONEST,
LIVE IN THE MOMENT
LIVE FOR TODAY
BECAUSE YESTERDAY IS OVER
AND TOMORROW IS NOT A GUARANTEE
THE BATTLES THAT FOUGHT AREN’T THE ONES FOR GOLD MEDALS?
THE STRUGGLES WITHIN YOURSELF – THE INVISIBLE BATTLE INSIDE ALL OF US – THAT’S WHERE IT IS AT
The struggle within ourselves is forgetfulness of our real Self which is Self-Effulgent. All Existent and All Bliss and all the inspiration comes from within and not without. The problem is the boisterous Mind and we regard ourselves nothing but Mind which was and is our servant. It is the Meditation which takes us beyond mind and all the knots are cut when we realise ourselves who we are. The holy voice of Gurudev Shri Swami Vishvas Ji rings in our ears:-
दिल के आइने में है, तस्वीर-ए- यार
जब जरा गर्दन झुकाई, देख ली
मोको कहाँ ढूंढे रे बन्दे, मैं तो तेरे पास में,
खोजेगा तो तुझको मिलूंगा, पल भर की तलाश में
मैं और मेरा यार एक ही बस्ती में बसते हैं
किस्मत की क्या खूबी है कि दर्शन को तरसते हैं
This voice comes from within that I and my father are one. All this happens in Vishvas Meditation and we get inspired spontaneously.
