Safar- A Journey to the Self- Coming Soon (part 4)

Friends, let’s talk about Spirituality….. Spirituality is being simpler than Simple. Being Spiritual is being natural, Being Spiritual is being at ease with oneself, Being Spiritual is being Courageous…..#Dadashreeji….

What is being spiritual, why is it that we have fixed norms and stigmas attached to spirituality. When we hear people are spiritual we think they must have had extra troubles or they must be directionless in life, with nothing to do. What is it about the thought of spirituality that truly troubles and allows people to pass judgments on others. Is it the thought of others being at peace and happy from heart, for it is difficult for the world to comprehend that such a state is even possible. Most of us have got so used to living with cravings and excessive wants that we can’t comprehend life without these. Whereas Spirituality is the most beautiful state to be in, to be at peace and happy from our heart, to just be in this state of happiness without any judgments. To understand  and accept people as they are.To not want to change them for they are who they are, what and who needs to transform and change is us. Spirituality is all about freedom and being true to yourself and to another, being true in our relationships.

All these clarities came after I met my Guru, Dadashreeji and I came out of my rigid belief system. I realized I had made life difficult for myself, life is the way it is, it’s nature will be the same, the same route, the same bumps, the same roadblocks, the same rock and roll music. What was it that changed for me. My way of looking at situations and my way of perceiving and reacting to them changed, due to the shift in my energy and my inner transformation. I will first share who is He, “Dadashreeji is the most Simple being you will have the fortune to meet. He is a Divine Friend who has truly come on this Earth to help us all in this journey of life. He is here to guide us on the right path with right actions. He is here to hold our hands and encompass us in His warmth during deep moments of pain and difficult walks of life. He is love and Bliss and when you are in His presence you experience complete true Love and become love yourself. He is the transformation specialist and shows us the mirror so as to help us walk the path of change. He is the Enlightened One here to show us the way out of the muddle and miseries of our life towards a life of peace and love”

Well, I am sure all are feeling how can He do that, How can someone do something so profound. Well believe it or not but Dadashreeji can and has done it already for innumerable of us. His compassionate glance when he looks at you full of His Unconditional Love, His Sweet Smile that only speaks to you as a parent does ready to embrace and shield you. When you are in His presence the shift you feel inside you is something that can not be described, it can only be felt for true is the fact that till you don’t experience the sweetness in your tea how can you know if it is  sweet or not. The same way I can only express my feelings and thoughts for the world but the tendency of the human mind is till you don’t experience it for yourself you will not believe it. So you will have to experience it for yourself to understand what is Divinity. What an amazing state of being it is when you connect to the Divine Energy, how life gets streamlined and transformed, finds the purpose and direction. The feeling of bliss and joy that I had only ever read about in books is now felt every moment with Him as my Inner Divine, my Divine Best Friend, my Dadashreeji.

I don’t need to be in the Physical Presence of my Guru, He is everywhere, in every action of mine, in every word I speak, in every thought of mine, in every smile of mine, in the ride of this journey of my life, He drives and I relax. The freedom of my soul to be who it wants to be, how it wants to be, to fly like an eagle for whom the sky has no limit. For me life is beautiful and I wake up with a smile ready to go for my morning walk and become one with nature. I sleep at night with a heartfelt thank you for the day was beautiful and I learnt so much in that day, did good deeds, hugged and shared my love with all those around me.Even in the pains and stresses of life I have my Divine Friend holding my hand and walking in front of me clearing all the obstacles on my way so as make the journey of my life smoother and pleasurable.  Recently someone said to me, you have had problems that is why you have gone into spirituality because you needed something to make you happier. Tell me something is it them or me who has been having antidepressant forever, is it them or me who wakes up in the morning with these words ‘life is stressful’, what to do about it, the day goes by  fighting with daily demons, surrounded by our self created miseries.

Friends there is time yet, life is short and we may not live to see tomorrow, why not take the steps needed to walk towards a life that allows us the freedom to be our true self. When we talk about freedom what is we talk about, are we talking about freedom from our worldly responsibilities, or are we talking about freedom from our family life. In spirituality freedom means to be yourself, to be true to the inner you, to have freedom of expression and thought and let the real you emerge. Today I share beautiful relationships with my family and friends for as I became true and pure so did my relationships. I pray for the world to experience this Divine Energy and become One with it. To Experience Dadashreeji and True Unconditional Love as a state to live in. For remember in the presence of Divine the shift that begins is what takes us forward and gets our life on track and we start experiencing life to the fullest. I will keep sharing my journey in snippets and pieces for all to see the reflection of their journey and maybe find the path to reclaim their destiny.

 

 

Safar – A Journey to the Self: COMING SOON (part 2)…

Door to true Transformation;

Transformation… A well heard of word in so many contexts but do we really know the true meaning of this word in our daily life situations. The effect of this word in our life when we go through life transforming experiences is immense and has to be felt internally to be believed.  In the beginning transformation is undetectable, so often subtle and unbelievable but as life goes on we see it working in all forms  within and around us. In the next few posts I am going to share my journey of transformation and make known how beautiful the world becomes when patterns of our daily life break apart and the way through a garden full of roses is made for miracles to walk in.

Changes;… Is the last year or the year before that the same for you. Do you physically look the same as you did five years back, Is your outlook and your perception for a particular thing exactly the same as it was last year, Is the love story of your life in the same level of depth and obsession as a few years back. do you still have the exact same bank balance in your account as a few years back…… No I don’t think so, for change is law and the most natural thing is the next moment that brings this change in our life.  The changes that happen in our life mostly just happen, we often don’t actively look or work for them. It is just the way of life to constantly throw roadblocks and hurdles in our way and for us to keep cribbing and craving while crossing them. This has been the story of my life also complaining and crying but also continuously walking to cross the road bumps. Always with a heavy heart thinking, this is life, this is what is meant for me, passively letting life pass by without true faith and love in my heart.  Today the change walked in the door only after I started asking these questions of the universe, why me? what have I done? what is my fault? why am I the one to have these problems and difficulties in life? why am I not loved unconditionally? please come and save me from these hurdles and blocks of life.

I have learnt a very important fact of life and that is unless and until you don’t ask your question with clarity you will not get the right answer and the treatment. Those who have the courage to knock on the unknown and unseen closed door will have the door of transformation and positive changes opened for them, those who seek the answer to Who Am I will be shown the mirror, and those who look within will find Divine nowhere else but inside their hearts. All this became possible only because my heartfelt cry reached the door of my Guru, who had been waiting for me to ask these questions. The moment I did He appeared and gave all the answers even the ones I unknowingly must have been seeking from lifetimes. The truth is I was seeking God because He was also seeking me and waiting for me to turn my vision inwards to recognise Him.

The Form comes in our life to take us to the Formless…… When you come under the influence of a Living Master the changes that had at one time been worrying and scary are now welcomed. Today life has taken a completely different meaning. the profound changes and breaking of life patterns has shown me how much of life we take at face value, never going deep within to find out the hidden truths and meaning. My first step was to know and understand the inner self and my core emotions. I had to accept that I was beautiful and yet imperfect in some ways. The feeling of helplessness had to dissipate. To deal with this inner powerlessness, I was continuously struggling with myself. Trying different ways to control my life, feeling unsettled and making efforts to fill the hole that had been made due to the pain and suffering of life.

Henceforth in this blog of ‘Safar’ whatever I write will be through my personal experience, sharing with the world how all the locked doors and windows opened to allow the joy of sunshine, romance of the moonlight, and freshness of rain in, embracing me in its folds and wetting me with happiness and bliss of unconditional love. Glimpses of the book and my journey for all, so as to be embraced in the unconditional love of my Guru.
