Bhagavad Gita - some thoughts!

WHY do you worry without cause? Whom do you fear without reason? Who can kill you? The soul is neither born, nor does it die!

Whatever happened, happened for the good; whatever is happening, is happening for the good; whatever will happen, will happen for the good only. You need not have any regrets for the past. You need not worry for the future. The present is happening....

WHAT did you lose that you cry about? WHAT did you bring with you, which you think you have lost? WHAT did you produce, which you think got destroyed? You did not bring anything - Whatever you have, you received from here. Whatever you have given, you have given only here. Whatever you took, you took from God. Whatever you gave, you gave to him. You came empty handed, you will leave empty handed. What is yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday and will belong to someone else the day after tomorrow. You are mistakenly enjoying the thought that this is yours. It is this FALSE HAPPINESS that is the cause of your sorrows.

Change is the law of the universe. What you think of as DEATH, is indeed LIFE. In once instance you can be a millionaire and in the other instance you can be steeped in poverty. Yours and mine, big and small - ERASE these ideas from your mind. Then everything is yours and you belong to everyone.

This body is not yours, neither are you of the body. The body is made of fire, water, air, earth and ether and will desappear into these elements. But the soul is permanent - so who are you?

Dedicate your being to God. He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. Those who know of his support are forever free from fear, worry and sorrow.

Whatever you do, do it as a dedication to God. This will bring you the tremendous experience of joy and life-freedom forever.

Some unanswered questions!

Have you ever noticed...?

Why do people offer money to God? I have seen many people offering money in the form of pujas in temples but do these same people ever give a penny to those poor people sitting just outside the temple and foot paths?

I've seen people sitting inside luxury cars in a petrol pump & getting the air checked on the tyres & drive away without giving a single penny to these poor guys!

But... I've seen these same people giving huge amount of tips in restaurant, bar, pubs (wherever they go) sometimes to impress their companions as well.

watch this space for more "unanswered question"!

God & I

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God.
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

How to get depressed?

The technique to get depressed is to sit and think only about you!

If you just sit and think, 'what about me, what will happen to me?' you will thoroughly get depressed.

The way to expand from individual to universal consciousness is to share others sorrow and joy.

As you grow, your consciousness should also grow. When you expand in knowledge with time, then depression is not possible.

Your inner most source is JOY!

H. Sri Ravi Shankar
