NEW YEAR 2010
There is neither yesterday nor tomorrow. It is always today only. Yet the mind is unable to be in today. Today is always enjoyable when the mind is in harmony with today. Gurudev Shivabalayogi always said not to waste a single moment, once it is gone it will not come back even if you keep regretting. So, do not waste time, it is temporary, utilize every moment for achieving the maximum and the highest.
It's the passing of time. In Indian philosophy Supreme Consciousness and Supreme Energy are considered inseparable. The movement of the earth spinning around itself and revolving around the Sun is an example of time movement which also makes the objective world including our physical existence transitory and impermanent with changing shape with a time span of its own. This means different objects may have their own time span of appearance, existence and disappearance. This may be just a micro-speck droplet in the vast boundless space. The Supreme Consciousness and Supreme Energy combination is the Divinity all-pervaded. The Omnipresent Supreme Being. The time illusion is happening due to this Supreme Consciousness Energy. Thus The Divine is also worshipped as “Maha Kaaleshwar” (The Supreme Lord of time).
Thus the day comes and the day passes by, New Year comes and the year passes by. Every moment is so precious, once it is gone it does not come back, though the mind is always brooding about yesterday and is anxious about tomorrow. There is neither yesterday nor tomorrow. It is always today only. Yet the mind is unable to be in today. Today is always enjoyable when the mind is in harmony with today. Gurudev Shivabalayogi always said not to waste a single moment, once it is gone it will not come back even if you keep regretting. So, do not waste time, it is temporary, utilize every moment for achieving the maximum and the highest.
Whenever a New Year comes it is celebrated with new hopes and dreams. Humanity needs to hope for a better world of peace and harmony. Love and honor to each other. They need to work for peace instead of just plain talking. Meditation is such an amazing technical exercise which can help the mind to get purified and relaxed. One can live a stress-free, better life. Peace descends. If one has peace, one would be able to give peace to others. Gurudev Swamiji said, “If one has hatred, one gives only hatred to others.” You Meditate, know yourself and you will feel secure. Insecure feeling is one of the basic reasons for conflict in this world. Swamiji Gurudev said, “You do everything for yourself, if you know your Real Self then you will know everything about the Truth and can come out of all conflicts.” When you sincerely meditate you will be able to love universally and feel the oneness. Then there is peace and harmony in the world.
As we step in to the New Year, we need to ponder that one more year has gone without achieving much on the world's need of peace and harmony but let us not lose hope. Let us sincerely resolve to work for peace and harmony. Let us pray for a better world for all of us. Let us plan to leave behind a safe, peaceful, harmonious world for the coming generations. Let us get connected to ourselves to find the peace and security. Spirituality is that we connect to ourselves, we know and become aware of ourselves, for the better.
Let us pray, may all the beings in all the worlds be happy,
Love and blessings,
Baba Shiva Rudra Balayogi,
