Influence of others

Date : 09 Dec 2007

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
There may be people around us who are negative, irritating and passing offensive remarks but it is up to us to get affected or not by these people. If we get affected, understand that it is because of our own weakness and not because of the strength of the other person.It is like watching a horror movie and getting scared. Some people get so much affected by the horror movie that they are not able to forget the movie scenes for a long time and some people just forget once they are out of the cinema theatre. Some even enjoy the horror scenes while watching movie. It is up to us as to what kind of influence we allow others to have on us

- Shri Ramesh Jain

  EXPERIANCE SHARING

'I used to earlier get affected by every small comment anybody makes against me and used to suffer for days to come but off late I have learnt how not to get affected and remain calm. This change has made my life much happier.''After my reactions have reduced to people's comments and situations I find that everybody has started liking me and loving me. They say I have become positive.'



  Question and Answers

Q:When somebody passes negative comments against us it is very difficult not to get affected. Is there any solution?A: If you consciously follow these tips you will be able to remain unaffected by the negative comments of people.

1. Do not react spontaneously to any comment

2. Try to understand the compulsion of the other person for making such comments.

3. Know that consciously or unconsciously you have done something which only has
prompted such comments as nothing in this creation happens without a cause.

4. Forgive or seek forgiveness from the person in your mind and smile at the event.

5. Emanate a positive thought in your mind against the negative comment.

6. Take these comments/events as the result of your own Karma and be happy
that your karmas are getting extinguished. If you react they will not get
extinguished and they will reappear in some form or other.

7. Divert your mind to some activity which gives you joy and happiness before
the negative comments gets deep rooted in your mind. Free mind is more
prone to getting affected.

8. Decide to remain happy all the time.

Inner Self - The most neglected

Date : 25 Apr 2009

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

There was a rich king who had 4 wives.He loved his 4th wife the most and adorned her with rich robes and treated her to the finest of delicacies. He gave her nothing but the best.

He also loved the 3rd wife very much. She was his confidante and was always kind, considerate and patient with him. Whenever the king faced a problem, he could confide in her to help him get through the difficult times.

He liked his 2nd wife too. He took good care of her.

The king's 1st wife was an introvert, a silent spectator who gave occasional hints to the king about what is good and what is not good. But the king never bothered to listen to her and didn't spend much time with her, although she loved him deeply; he hardly took notice of her.

One day, the king fell ill and he knew his time was short. He thought of his luxurious life and pondered, "I now have 4 wives with me, but when I die, I'll be all alone.

Thus, he asked the 4th wife, "I have loved you the most, endowed you with the finest clothing and showered great care over you. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No way!" replied the 4th wife. "Life is too good!

After you die, I'm going to remarry!"

Her answer came like a bolt of thunder and the king felt sad.

The sad king then asked the 3rd wife, "I have loved you all my life. Now that I'm dying, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"No!" replied the 3rd wife. There are lots of things I need to take care of, after you die. "At the very most, I can only send you to your grave." and she walked away without another word.

Her answer cut like a sharp knife right into his heart.

He then asked the 2nd wife, "I have always turned to you for help and you've always been there for me. When I die, will you follow me and keep me company?"

"I'm sorry, I can't follow you and give you company after your death!" replied the 2nd wife. "But yes, I know, I will also not survive without you."

His heart sank and turned cold.

Then a voice called out:

"I'll leave with you and follow you no matter where you go." The king looked up and there was his first wife. She was so skinny, she suffered from malnutrition.

Greatly grieved, the king said, "I should have taken much better care of you when I had the chance!"

In truth, we all have 4 wives in our lives …

Our 4th wife is our possessions and wealth. No matter how much time and effort we lavish in making it look good, it'll leave us and go to others after we die.

Our 3rd wife is our family. No matter how much they have been there for us, the furthest they can stay by us is up to the grave.

Our 2nd wife is our body. It can't survive after our death.

And our 1st wife is our soul (Inner self), often neglected in pursuit of wealth, power and pleasures of the ego.

However, our soul is the only thing that will follow us wherever we go. So cultivate, strengthen and cherish it now!

Let us shine & grow spiritually !!!

Karma Theory

Date : 17 Mar 2010

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Past actions decided present life situations. Present actions will decide future life situations.Whatever situation we face in this birth has a connection with our past birth and is based on our past birth karma (deeds). To all those whom we gave happiness or pain and all those who gave us happiness or pain in any past birth, have come to our life in some or the other way to receive or give happiness and pain (so as to settle their account). If we accept the situation, favorable or unfavorable, with a smile and without grudge or attachment then our past deeds gets satisfied and the account gets nullified. But if we do not accept life situations as they are, especially the painful ones and grumble, then the past deeds remain unsettled and they will try to come again and again to our life by way of another situation till we accept the result of these past deeds with folded hands.

The past account of karma is classified into Prarabdh Karmas and Sanchit Karmas. Prarabdh Karmas are those whose results have been destined to come to us in this birth itself (we call it fate/destiny) and Sanchit Karmas are the accumulated karmas in fixed deposit whose results will come in future births.

The best way to cut the cycle of this ongoing karma business is to accept life situations as they are and perform actions as mere duties without ego, pride, jealousy, revenge or expectations.

Kundalini Energy

 Date : 14 Feb 2009

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Kundalini, also known as the serpent power, is an energy which lies dormant at the base of our spinal cord (back bone) between two lotuses. One lotus at the base of spinal cord and another at the middle of the head. There are mainly six chakras (energy centers) in the path of kundalini between these two lotuses and by raising kundalini and piercing these chakras one can enjoy the bliss of a meditative state, experience the inner mysterious world and even gain supernatural powers. Power to heal, power of intuition, power of thought, power to make things manifest and power to feel the oneness with the universal divine energy are the result of Kundalini Yoga. Through regular meditation on this kundalini one can awaken it, make it traverse through the spinal cord and unravel the mysteries of universe.

- Ramesh Jain


  Experience Sharing

I experience a rare tingling sensation as if ants are moving up and down in my spinal cord whenever I meditate on kundalini. It's a blissful feeling and it takes me beyond time and space. I have been also hearing different kinds of musical sounds when I am meditating on my spinal cord. It is such a sweet music that no musical instrument in this world can match it. I also experience many conversations, mantra chanting and divine lights.



  Question and Answers

Q: What are the six chakras (centers) in the spinal cord, where are they and what do they represent?

A: The six chakras (energy centers) are Mooladhara, Swadhistana, manipuraka, Anahata, Vishuddhi and Ajnya chakra. These chakras are in the shushumana nadi inside the spinal cord. The first five chakras represent five elements and the sixth chakra represents the source of all elements. Mooladhara represents Earth, Swadhistana represents Water, Manipuraka represents Fire, Anahata represents Air and Vishuddhi represents Ether and ajnya represents Pure divine consciousness (the source of all the five elements). As you meditate on each chakra you start gaining control over the corresponding element.

Law of Garbage Disposal

 Date : 16 Jan 2009

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Everybody in this world is carrying loads and loads of garbage in their head and look for opportunity to dump their garbage on others. The garbage is of disappointments, irritation, failures, frustration, miseries, ego etc. Not only that we should consciously reduce our own garbage we should ensure that we do not allow others to dump their garbage on us. Not allowing others to dump their garbage on us means not taking offensive of others remarks, behavior, actions and negative reactions. We must try to safeguard our inner peace and inner balance. Somebody has rightly said that 10% of life is what we make and 90% is how we take. 

- Ramesh Jain


  Short Story

One day, when my taxi was proceeding towards the airport in the right lane and at right speed suddenly, a black car, jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. The taxi driver slammed the brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at the taxi driver. The taxi driver just smiled, waved at the guy and almost apologized.

So I asked, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!"He explained saying sir, "Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. NEVER take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on with the routine life." Don't take their garbage and spoil your day and spread it to other people at work, at home or on the streets.



  Question and Answers

Q:Is it possible not to react when others are scolding and blaming you for no fault of yours?A: To react or not to react i.e. to get provoked or not, is purely your choice. Nobody has the power to force you get provoked if you wish not to get provoked. Our problem is our own weakness of getting provoked at the drop of a hat. We find it tough not to react and find it easy to react, especially negatively. This is how unconsciously we have trained our mind over a period of time and suffering the consequences. It is still not late and you can retrain your mind, not to react negatively, when you know that others are trying to provoke you and ultimately its you who is going the suffer the consequences and not so much the other person. Others enjoy seeing you suffer and by reacting negatively you are only helping others fulfill their secret agenda.

Whenever you feel that you are being targeted for something for which you are not responsible then know that the other person is only trying to dump his/her garbage on you. See clearly the overflowing garbage from their heads and you should try to save yourself and not accept the free gift of garbage being distributed all over.

Law of Hatred- Hate and become the hated

 THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

If you hate a person you will become a person who gets hated. If you hate an enemy you will attract in you, all those qualities which that enemy has. If you hate Pakistanis, you will in all probability, become a Pakistani in next birth. If you hate an ugly person you will become ugly in the next birth. If you hate filth or dirty places then you will in all likelihood, become a scavenger, a beggar or a poor person residing in slums in the next birth.You will attract all that which you hate. You will become what you hate, because when you hate somebody or something, a deep rooted impression gets formed over the sub-conscious mind. Your impressions become your desire for the sub-conscious mind. The powers of sub-conscious mind get invoked and the hated thing gets manifested in your life.

Because of this science alone, the world always has enemies in some or the other form, wars are fought between nations, poor and ugly people are born, in-laws become troublesome and diseases, violence and hatred is experienced in day to day life. Hatred gives birth to hatred, birth after birth.

We must break this chain of hatred by love and compassion. Start loving everybody and everything; emanate vibes of love even towards your enemies, ugly and poor people, unsocial elements, terrorists and towards all those whom you don't like. Vibrations of love alone have the power to neutralize hatred. Let's make this world free of hatred and create a world of love, compassion, equality and of complete harmony.

- Ramesh Jain



  Technique to spread ‘vibes of peace’ in the world

Everyday morning sit in a quiet place, close your eyes and imagine the expansion of universe. In the universe see our world with different nations, people with different religions, looks and actions. Fill your heart with love for everybody in the world. Imagine your love vibes spreading in the entire universe. See the whole universe filled with the ocean of love. Imagine every creature in the world enjoying these vibes of love and feeling happy. Be with this feeling with as much intensity as possible for a minute and gradually open your eyes with continued feeling of love in your heart.[This technique has the power to completely cleanse hatred from the world and spread the feeling of love. The more number of people practice this technique; more would be its effect. I would suggest everybody to practice this technique everyday and to take this technique to as many forums and groups as possible so as to quickly reap its benefits. Let's make a small beginning today and I will assure to revolutionize the world. A line of confirmation, action and any plan to take it forward would be welcome. ] THE JOY OF SEEING OTHERS JOY IS A BIGGER JOY THAN OUR OWN JOY


Law of intention

Date : 09 Oct 2007

  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION
LAW OF INTENTION: We attract good or bad things in life based on our intentions. When we intend to help others we get helped by somebody and when we intend to harm others we get harmed by somebody. Our own energy with good or bad frequencies comes back in our life with good or bad results.- Shri Ramesh Jain
  EXPERIANCE SHARING
'Now I know what force has saved my life. I am one of the survivor of 1993 Bombay bomb blast. I was almost dead due to bomb blast with my limbs cut off from my body, several fractures in the Rib cage, profusely bleeding with hundreds of glass pieces piercing through my body and one side of the face completely smashed. The flash of a thought to survive for protecting the interest of some of the people whose important documents I was carrying and the concern to return those documents to their owners was the only force which saved my life. Though I was dying but the thought continued that others should not suffer because of my death and somehow I should return the documents to their owners. The power of this positive thought was the lone factor during that crisis which saved my life.
Kirti Ajmera'- Mohit.
  Question and Answers
Q: How to get rid of negative thoughts completely?A: The best and the easiest technique to become positive is to consciously replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts whenever they arise. Unconsciously we allowed our mind to emanate negative thoughts in the past and since we did not put break to this pattern it went on becoming more and more negative. Now with conscious effort we can change the pattern of the same mind and turn it positive. Once it starts enjoying the results of being positive then, it will on its own, endeavor to become more and more positive. Keep on replacing your negative thoughts, negative imaginations, negative emotions and negative actions with positive ones. 30 days would be enough to transform this mind, if sincere efforts are put.

Life after death


  THOUGHT FOR CONTEMPLATION

Soul continues to live even after the death of physical body. Living in physical body is only a trans migratory state of the soul in its journey through the world. Every night, soul experiences beyond death state in the form of dream. While in the dream, soul is not aware of the physical body it is possessing, its relationship with other physical bodies and the limitations of time and space. This is precisely what every soul experiences after the death of physical body. Soul creates its own world in dreams based on the impressions it has formed birth after birth. Hell and Heaven experiences depend on the kind of dreams it sees. Scary and painful dreams are experiences of hell and dreams of joy and pleasure are the experiences of heaven. There is no separate hell or heaven to be visited or experienced. Erase all unwanted, troublesome and painful impressions (especially about other people) from the mind as it is you, who is going to suffer the consequences and not the other person, against whom you are carrying these impressions.
 

- Ramesh Jain


  Experience Sharing
Once, I had an out of body experience when I met with an accident and was operated upon. I felt as if I am seeing myself, from the ceiling, being operated by the doctors even though I was on anesthesia and unconscious. Doctors were surprised when I told them what I saw during operation, conversations between doctors and nurses etc. I can never forget this experience during my life time. This experience made me believe of my existence even without physical body.Sushank

  Question and Answers

Q: Every religion says that if we perform bad deeds we will go to hell and good deeds will take us to heaven. Is it true?

A:Good and bad deeds are basically the impressions we carry on our sub-conscious mind for the various experiences (good and bad) gathered during our present and previous lives. These impressions (deeds) remain in the mind till corresponding results have been experienced by the mind. Some deeds give their results when the soul is in the physical body, some through dreams and other deeds in both i.e. in physical body as well as in dreams (that is why many people find their dreams coming true in the physical world). 

There is no separate Hell or Heaven to be visited after death, but the mind creates its own hell and heaven based on the impressions it carries. Remember any one particular night when you had very scary dream, you shivered, perspired and screamed. You wanted to wake up but couldn't. Somebody woke you up hearing you scream or you woke up after little bit of struggling. Can you imagine such dreams continuing for long periods without your being able to wake up as there is no physical body allowing you to wake up (after death). Nobody to help you and no solution to get out of the situation. This would be the experience of soul after the death of physical body for the bad impressions it carries. Do you think there can be worse experience of hell than this?
