To be free from expectations is to have freedom.

Message for the day 04-08-2015

Thought to ponder: When I expect others to behave in a particular way, and they don't fulfill these expectations, there is sorrow. I slowly become totally dependent on others' behavior for my state of happiness and wellbeing. Since others will mostly not behave according to what I want them to, I feel mostly deprived. 

Point to practice: Today I will be a giver instead of a taker, whenever I am faced with a difficult situation. Let me check within, what I have and give from it. It could be a simple thought of understanding, positivity or even a good wish. When I do this, I will be free from the bondage of expectations and disappointments.

Believe It Or Not (Part 2)!

There was a time once in the history of humanity when men and women lived in complete harmony and the world was not divided into so many countries as it is today. On the other hand the world was like one small family with a population of only a few lakhs, which later increased as time passed and more and more souls came down from the soul world to accompany the original population of the earth. This one united kingdom is represented by the crown of gold and the one united religion is represented by the aura or crown of purity around the deities or also called as devi devtas, the human beings with divine qualities. Even the idols of deities which are worshipped with so much respect are shown as wearing both these crowns, inside temples of worship. They are extremely beautiful human beings – both in terms of physical beauty as well as inner beauty i.e. their natures are like God’s nature. Also, they are the richest in terms of physical and spiritual attainments. That is why they are given a status equal to God. Most people do not even consider them as different from God but they are very much human, humans who are the purest and with the highest divine qualities. They are not the one God or the Supreme although they are commonly called gods and goddesses because they were similar to God in qualities.

Such divine human beings devis and devtas who are still remembered so much, when they lived, they spent the most beautiful moments in the history of mankind, a time which is also called swarg or heaven commonly by us. All the religions of the world have recorded histories and we know approximately from our history books when they were established. But the deities or devi devtas, who existed prior to the important religions of the world are only remembered in our religious books and not at all mentioned in our history books because the history of those times was not recorded. But because they have existed in the past, people all over the world remember deities or devi devtas like Shri Radhe Krishna, Shri Lakshmi Narayan and Shri Ram Sita.
