The mind remains restless mind throughout the real life. A person is unable to complete even normal tasks due to this disturbance of mind. This disturbance of the mind creates obstacles in leading a calm and peaceful life. Nothing is impossible to a calm and serene life. In fact, you achieve proximity to Providence, because the real peace and joy occurs in the company of God. Faith will propel you to become completely absorbed within your tasks, enabling you to complete all the tasks of your life in a simple and correct manner. However, if you are not absorbed in work, when you are distant, then some degree of disturbance or turbulence will always be present.
One has to use the mind to control the mind. One has to use the mind to get out of the mind or to even enter the mind. The mind becomes the basis of knowledge, when one starts to enter the mind.
Even if we get away from the crowd of society, the crowd remains hidden within us. Sometimes we feel to be in solitude even while sitting in the crowd, and it is also possible that we may be sitting both in solitude as well within the crowd. When you sit peacefully focusing solely on the self, then we will forget others. Anyone focusing on the self within the crowd will forget others. The mind has capacity to focus only on a single thought at any moment. If I fill my mind with awareness only of the self, then others will disappear. We always sense presence of others in our mind because we ourselves are not present in in.
Solitude has a very significant meaning. To sit somewhere where none else is present. This is present more within rather outside. If we sitting in a market with your mind focusing solely on the self, then you are in solitude. And note that if you cannot achieve solitude within the market, then you cannot achieve it even while sitting alone. Because there is a second law of the mind that it misses whatever is not near. It aspires to be where we are not. Therefore, you get pleasurable thoughts of solitude while physically in the market, and similar pleasurable thoughts of the market while sitting alone. A person should focus his thoughts on where-ever he is, his voice should be confluent with his mind, and nothing distincts mind and voice. Whatever is in my mind, becomes my speech, and my voice should become my expression of mind. Whatever I am – good or bad, everything should reflect from my speech. May my words become a symbol of my mind. It seems very difficult. We try to hide ourselves throughout our life, and it is not necessary that we speak to tell something. We often lie.
The meaning of voice residing within the mind is that whenever I speak, I stay fully aware of my mind within myself. And when I don’t want to speak, my mind is absent from there. You are able to walk only when you have legs. You can counter by saying that the legs are present even when we don’t walk. However, it is just a myth to call them legs when at rest. Leg is the one which walks. The mind is the medium of expression. You don’t need mind when you are not speaking or expressing anything. However we have become habitual of using our mind even when we sleep, awake or sit. The mind has gone mad within us. You don’t own yourself that your eyes view with their own wish, that they view only that which is important. Your perspective will change, your eyes will become powerful if you manage to achieve this. Your personality will grow with boundless energy.
Whenever a person goes inside to search within himself, he will first find the trenches of evil. Crossing these mines of evil, will enable you to reach the peak of superiority. Therefore, someone who considers himself to be a good person will not be able to go inside. Because the belief of your good will only create fear of facing evil after treading inside. Whoever fears facing, cannot get inside. In the present day, man is wandering outside of himself, yet he is not satisfied. Wandering outside does not mean that you are satisfied. You are sad, and will become more sad when you venture inside, because you will face your evil abyss there. Therefore you live outside, and try to use your intellect to cover up your evil by proving yourself right with your own mind. Only the person who has passed these abyss of evil can attain the pinnacle of goodness and virtue.
There are two ways to avoid this abyss, either do not enter it and spend your entire life outside these mines of evil. Live as you are – good or bad, rich or poor. You want to live like this only Try as I might, you manage to drop back to same level after two days. I keep trying to take you out of that, but you just ignore me. Your intellect is so strong that you interpret your desired meanings from my words. I will never stop trying this. I will continue to accomplish the task delegated by SadGurudev. I shall complete my task countering all sorts of obstacles and hindrances. I shall continue to exert my efforts to make you attain the pinnacle. I shall not stop until I fully accomplish this task. I aim is to make you attain the pinnacle. You will never be able to achieve the summit if you live as you do now. The second way is to enter this abyss, to pass through these mines without stopping. You will have to pass through this abyss to get rid of these mines of evil.
Life will remain dull if it continues to be full of filth and burdens. Everyone aspires to a joyful and happy life in worldly activities, but this is achievable only when we realize the errors of our perspective and try to correct these. Only the best approach can ensure satiation. I heartfully bless all of you for an auspicious happy new year. Remember SadGurudev and take His blessings for success, whenever you initiate any auspicious task in your home. This will ensure complete success in all your new endeavors.
Heartfelt blessings and auspicious greetings to all my soulful sons and daughters for a happy new year
