The one who is generous gets everything and is yet free from desires.

Message for the day

Projection: When we are generous we would have no expectations from others or situations. Then we are able to appreciate all the good things that life brings our way. Also the more we are able to be beyond desires the more we find that what is right comes to us.

Solution: When I find myself expecting something, I need to tell myself that I will surely get what is right for me. So I need not ask for anything, but enjoy and use everything that comes my way for my benefit and for the benefit of others.


Soul Sustenance

Overcoming Suffering By Regaining My Original Texture Of Purity

Unless the soul regains its original .sanskars. of purity, it cannot escape suffering and grief. Purity is the foundation of peace and bliss. And for purity the soul requires the removal of every trace of negativity. Souls are burdened with the accumulated negative .sanskars. of their previous births, the extent of which varies from soul to soul. According to the law of karma, the soul has to experience suffering as a punishment for its wrongful acts, or "sins." A pure soul does not suffer. The evidence that most human beings are bearing grief and suffering in some form shows that nowadays souls are carrying a load of negative .sanskars. resulting from sins committed in this and their past lives.

A question can be asked, "Can a soul be relieved of all its past sins through suffering for the same in its present life?" Not really, because due to the cyclic nature of the thought process there is a cumulative effect of negative .sanskars. which forces the soul to perform more negative actions than it can clear through suffering. That is why the degrees of purity of the soul decrease continuously. The downfall becomes steeper due to the cumulative effect of vices. Negative .sanskars. give rise to negative thoughts which lead to negative actions, resulting in the formation of still more negative .sanskars.. Thus, souls are caught in a downward spiral from which they are unable to release themselves. Meditation, however, opens the door to God, and through rising above all physical laws, one can set oneself free from the effects of sins. Through connection with the purest Supreme Soul, the .sanskars. of the soul are automatically purified and it moves further towards its original state of purity, peace and bliss.
