Love for God gives us faith and makes us fearless in all situations.

Message for the day

Projection: When we have love for God, we are able to experience His companionship in everything we do. Where there is love there is never a moment of loneliness. Thus we will be able to move forward being fearless in spite of all the challenges that life brings.

Solution: Let me think of one situation where I had an experience of failure. Now let me bring the consciousness that God is with me to help me in this situation. When I believe this, I will find that I have the courage to accept and face the situation. So I remain fearless and I am also able to work and bring about a change in the situation.

The Eternal World Cycle – Explained With A Comparison (cont.)

Continuing from yesterday’s message ….. In all cyclic processes there is a birth, growth, decline, death and then rebirth. The "river" of humanity flows in a similar manner. The souls are like the drops of water, arriving from the soul world or ‘shantidham’, each in its purest state. They adopt bodies. In the first part of the river of history, the population is small, living in unity and is pure (just like the water). Then, they pass through many births, acquiring the "salts" of impurities through contact with and influence of the physical world. The "sweet water" becomes "brackish" and then "salty". Meanwhile, more pure souls also keep descending in the “river” of humanity, which become impure much faster, due to the overall impure state of the already flowing water i.e. in this case, the state of the world. Finally, all the souls become unrecognizable compared to their original state. The only possibility of them becoming liberated from their acquired impurities is through the influence of God, the "sun" of knowledge, the external “force”.

When the "river" of humanity has poured itself into an ocean of vices, when impurities in human lives and relationships, reach their highest, God, the Supreme, acts to renew (restore) the system. The souls are purified, go back to the "clouds", in this case the soul world, and come to earth again to go through a new cycle. We cannot judge the history of humanity on the basis of limited and comparatively recent past facts and figures. This would be like trying to deduct the whole story of a river on the basis of that tiny part of it passing in front and ignoring its origins. Any particular section of the river may not seem perfect but the whole process is one of perfection. So too with the history of human souls. There is a pure stage and an impure stage; a happy stage and a sad stage; an enlightened stage and an ignorant stage; a day of history and a night of history; a heaven and a hell. There is also the stage in which the impure souls become pure again and the cycle repeats, a period between the night and the day. That is the stage, which the world is presently in.
