Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.70
 4 September 2019  

Be Flow - In Gita Verse 2.70 A person who is not disturbed by the incessant flow of desires – that enter like rivers into the ocean, which is ever being filled but is always still – can alone achieve peace, and not the man who strives to satisfy such desires.Krishna now explains where and how we need to be aware. River is going towards ocean, meet ocean, but never get distracted by any hurdles. Same for Human Being, as only human being in this existences has possibility to grow in consciousness. For growing in the consciousness one thing plays a very important key role is self-awareness. Self-awareness for present moment, without getting affected by past or future. All our desires are of the future. We are like river going to merge into ocean but totally aware of this moments hurdle of all our desires.Desire always goes ahead of you. Desire is always in the future. Desire is a hope. Desire cannot be fulfilled because its very nature is to remain unfulfilled and projected in the future. It is always on the horizon.In the modern time challenges how to remain undisturbed with our desire:A desire arises: with the desire, the feeling that I AM arises. A thought arises: with the thought, the feeling that I AM arises. Look for it in your own experience. Before desire and before knowing, there is no ego.Sit silently. Look within. A thought arises: you get identified with the thought. A desire arises: you get identified with the desire. In the identification you become the ego. Then think: there is no desire and there is no knowledge and no thought – you cannot get identified with anything. The ego cannot arise.Buddha used this technique and he said to his disciples not to do anything else but just one thing: when a thought arises, note it down. Buddha used to say that when a thought arises, note down that a thought is arising. Just inside, note it: now a thought is arising, now a thought has arises, now a thought is disappearing. Just remember that now the thought is arising, now the thought has arisen, now the thought is disappearing, so that you don’t get identified with it.It is very beautiful and very simple. A desire arises. You are walking on the road; a beautiful car passes by. You look at it – and you have not even looked and the desire to possess it arises. Do it. In the beginning just verbalize; just say slowly, ‘I have seen a car. It is beautiful. Now a desire has arisen to possess it. Just verbalize.In the beginning it is good; if you can say it loudly, it is very good. Say loudly, ‘I am just noting that a car has passed, the mind has said it is beautiful, and now desire has arisen and I must possess this car.’ Verbalize everything, speak loudly to yourself and immediately you will feel that you are different from it. Note it.When you have become efficient in noting, there is no need to say it loudly. Just inside, note that a desire has arisen. A beautiful woman passes; the desire has come in. Just note it – as if you are not concerned, you are just noting the fact that is happening – and then suddenly you will be out of it.Buddha says, ‘Note down whatsoever happens. Just go on noting, and when it disappears, again note that now that desire has disappeared, and you will feel a distance from the desire, from the thought.’Consider. Dissolve in the beauty.And if you can consider that a desire has arisen and a desire has gone and you have remained in the gap and the desire has not disturbed you…. It came, it went. It was there, and it is now not there, and you have remained unperturbed, you have remained as you were before it. There has been no change in you. It came and it passed like a shadow. It has not touched you; you remain unscarred.Consider this movement of desire and movement of thought but no movement in you. Consider and dissolve in the beauty. And that interval is beautiful. Dissolve in that interval. Fall in the gap and be the gap. It is the deepest experience of beauty. And not only of beauty, but of good and of truth also. In the gap you are.The whole emphasis has to go from the filled spaces to the unfilled spaces. You are reading a book. There are words, there are sentences, but between the words there are gaps, between the sentences there are gaps. In those gaps you are. The whiteness of the paper you are, and the black dots are just clouds of thought and desire moving on you. Change the emphasis, change the gestalt. Don’t look at the black dots. Look at the white.In your inner being, look at the gaps. Be indifferent to the filled spaces, the occupied spaces. Be interested in the gaps, the intervals. Through those intervals you can dissolve into the ultimate beauty.Krishna says that when you irrespective of all the desire can become indifferent to desire and can fill up spaces, be interested in the gapes then you will be silent, in peace.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.20
 17 July 2019  

Witnessing - In Gita Verse 2.20 For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.Krishna says that our subjectivity or soul is witnessing consciousness. Which is eternal.Witnessing is not a mental activity; thinking is a mental activity. Rather, it would be better to say that thinking is mind. When the mind is not, when the mind is absent, when the mind has disappeared, only then do you have witnessing. It is something behind the mind.Zen Buddhism uses “mind” in two ways: the ordinary mind means thinking; then mind with a capital M means the Mind behind thinking. Consciousness is behind the mind; consciousness comes through the mind. If mind is in a state of thinking it becomes opaque, nontransparent, just like a clouded sky – you cannot see the sky. When the clouds are not, you can see the sky. When thinking is not there then you can feel the witnessing; it is the pure sky behind.So you cannot do two things, either you can think or you can witness. If you are thinking, then you lose witnessing. Then the mind becomes a cloud on your consciousness. If you are witnessing, you cannot think simultaneously; then the mind is not there. Thinking is an acquired process; witnessing is your nature. So that you cannot do both, or mind cannot do both, it doesn’t mean that mind is the faculty to witness. Mind is the faculty to think, mind is for “minding.”Really, many problems are created just by language. There is nothing like “mind.” There is only a process, not a thing. It is better to call it “minding” than mind. It is a process of continuous thought, one thought being followed by another. Only in the gaps, only in the intervals between two thoughts can you have something of the witnessing nature. But thoughts are so fast that you cannot even feel the gap. If you begin to witness your thoughts, then the thought process is slowed down and then you begin to feel gaps. One thought passes, another has not come yet, and there is an interval. In that interval you have witnessing. Thoughts cannot exist without gaps, otherwise they will begin to overlap each other. They cannot exist! Just like my fingers are there – with gaps in between.If your thought process is slowed down – and any method of meditation is nothing but a slowing down of the thought process – if the thought process is slowed down you begin to feel the gaps. Through these gaps is witnessing. Thought is mind; a thoughtless consciousness is witnessing. Thought is acquired from the outside; witnessing is inside. Consciousness is born with you; thought is acquired, cultivated. So you can have a Hindu thought, you can have a Mohammedan thought, you can have a Christian thought, but you cannot have a Christian soul, you cannot have a Hindu soul. Soul is just soul – consciousness is consciousness.What Krishna is right now doing giving very gentle jerk to Arjuna, through that jerk he is bringing Arjuna back to present moment.Recollect the moment when you get little bit of jerk in your thinking your thinking stops, in that moment you get like lightning, you come across a glimpse of your consciousness. Suddenly you will find freshness in you.Krishna right now is just giving a jerk so that Arjuna can be watchful and then can witness. Once Arjuna can witness himself then he will be on his own to become aware. We have to remember that we can eat, see, hear, sleep on our behalf same way no one can witness on our behalf. Unless we take take that challenge and responsibility than only it is possible. Krishna can only give wake up call to Arjuna, so that he can witness himself.Witnessing is a relationship between subject and object. Awareness is absolutely devoid of any subjectivity or objectivity. There is no one who is witnessing in awareness; there is no one who is being witnessed. Awareness is a total act, integrated; the subject and the object are not related in it; they are dissolved. So awareness doesn’t mean that anyone is aware, nor does it mean that anything is being attended to.Awareness is total – total subjectivity and total objectivity as a single phenomenon – while in witnessing a duality exists between subject and object. Awareness is non-doing; witnessing implies a doer. But through witnessing awareness is possible, because witnessing means that it is a conscious act; it is an act, but conscious. You can do something and be unconscious – our ordinary activity is unconscious activity – but if you become conscious in it, it becomes witnessing. So from ordinary unconscious activity to awareness there is a gap that can be filled by witnessing.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 3.39
 17 October 2019  

Blissful State - In Gita Verse 3.39 Thus the wise living entity’s pure consciousness becomes covered by his eternal enemy in the form of lust, which is never satisfied and which burns like fire.Krishna tells Arjuna that our biggest enemy is our desires. Which cannot be fulfilled. In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.12, I wrote that Needs can be fulfilled, but desires or wants cannot be.What is desire? Have you looked into your desiring mind ever? Have you encountered it? Have you tried any meditation on it? What is desire?You desire a certain house; you work for it, you work hard. You destroy your whole life for it – then the house is there. But is fulfillment there? Once the house is there, suddenly you feel very empty – you feel more empty than before, because before there was an occupation to achieve this house. Now it is there: immediately your mind starts looking for something else to get occupied with. Now there are bigger houses; your mind starts thinking of those bigger houses. There are bigger palaces…. You desire a woman and you have achieved your desire, then suddenly your hands are again empty. Again you start desiring some other woman.This is the nature of desire. Desire always goes ahead of you. Desire is always in the future. Desire is a hope. Desire cannot be fulfilled because its very nature is to remain unfulfilled and projected in the future. It is always on the horizon.You can rush, you can run towards the horizon, but you will never reach: wherever you reach you will find the horizon has receded back. And the distance between you and the horizon remains absolutely the same. You have ten thousand rupees, the desire is for twenty thousand rupees; you have twenty thousand rupees, the desire is for forty thousand rupees. The distance is the same; the mathematical proportion is the same.Whatsoever you have, desire always goes ahead of it.What Krishna says come out of the desire, - Buddha created technique for it. It will be simple and practical for us. Rather then trying to understand Krishna’s word let’s have our own experience with Buddha’s technique.Before desire and before knowing, how can I say I am?Buddha used this technique and he said to his disciples not to do anything else but just one thing: when a thought arises, note it down. Buddha used to say that when a thought arises, note down that a thought is arising. Just inside, note it: now a thought is arising, now a thought has arises, now a thought is disappearing. Just remember that now the thought is arising, now the thought has arisen, now the thought is disappearing, so that you don’t get identified with it.It is very beautiful and very simple. A desire arises. You are walking on the road; a beautiful car passes by. You look at it – and you have not even looked and the desire to possess it arises. Do it. In the beginning just verbalize; just say slowly, ‘I have seen a car. It is beautiful. Now a desire has arisen to possess it. Just verbalize.In the beginning it is good; if you can say it loudly, it is very good. Say loudly, ‘I am just noting that a car has passed, the mind has said it is beautiful, and now desire has arisen and I must possess this car.’ Verbalize everything, speak loudly to yourself and immediately you will feel that you are different from it. Note it.When you have become efficient in noting, there is no need to say it loudly. Just inside, note that a desire has arisen. A beautiful woman passes; the desire has come in. Just note it – as if you are not concerned, you are just noting the fact that is happening – and then suddenly you will be out of it.Buddha says, ‘Note down whatsoever happens. Just go on noting, and when it disappears, again note that now that desire has disappeared, and you will feel a distance from the desire, from the thought.’This technique says:Before desire and before knowing, how can I say I am?And if there is no desire and if there is no thought, how can you say I AM? How can I say I AM?Krishna says once there is no desire, you will find no thoughts or lust regarding life. Through your subjectivity you are connected with the whole, universe, that will use your body to respond in the present moment without expectation of fruits. In your blissful state you will be able to fight this war.

THOUGHTS CAN IMAPCT YOU A LOT

THOUGHTSSeptember 5, 2018EditThe uncomplicated definition of thought is a notion, perception or conception of one. Someone so truly said that ,”As a single step footstep will not make a path on the Earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind.To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives!”Yes! The way you think, is the way you become. It is not just the volume of efforts you put in, but also the type of thoughts you possess. The thoughts that you have in your mind, have an intense impact on your behaviour, success, existence and your emotions.The brain stimulates responses in accordance to the gestures it receives.So, if you develop good thoughts, you’ll have a positive impact . For example: Whenever you are struck with any problem ,don’t panic. Just give your brain positive gestures like everything is normal, I can deal with it.Giving such positive gestures prepares the mind and let’s you stay calm.In the same situation, if you express dismay or get thoughts in your mind like,’ I can’t do anything, Everything is done,’ then your mind gets prepared in such a way that you become all the more alarmed and tensed. Although having positive thoughts can’t solve your problem,’but it will atleast give you courage and inspiration to solve it.I don’t want to stress on the point to have positive thoughts but instead I would suggest you people to always have such thoughts that will make your life simpler. Where some thoughts make up your life , some thoughts destruct it.Thoughts come a lot, some help you trot while some cause you rot. One should understand the fine line between positive and negative thoughts. The thought that calm you down are the positive ones and the ones that warm you up are the negative ones. What may be a positive thought for one may not be positive for the other. For instance Getting a change in society in terms of eradicating superstitions may be a positive thought for one but might be a negative thought for the other since he/she might believe that superstitions are necessary!“Positive feel’s wheel heals quickly!” So,Think you are the conqueror, you will become so. Think you own this world , you’ll definitely own one day. Once you just realize the power of your thoughts you will never think a negative thought. The day you change your thoughts, you can change the world.Thus, HAVE STRONG BELIEF, IT PROVIDES YOU RELIEF. SHAPE YOUR THOUGHTS, TO GET RID OF TRAP IN WHICH YOU ARE CAUGHT…….

What is the best birthday present you can get a girl?
 10 September 2019  

Selecting a gift for a girl is entirely different from a boy. So naturally, you need to be utterly careful if you want to be the best in the category of getting gifts. But when you chose gifts for girls do always make sure that you should get something which is relatable to the character and personality of that particular girl. In addition to that, you should be equally mindful to the taste of the girl for whom you are going to get the gift actually. Thus, today we take the privilege of sharing some gifting ideas likebirthday flowers and other gifts which will surely turn on the mood of the birthday girl always and ever. Sophisticated crystal ring:A girl in her fifteen or sixteen is too much sophisticated and she does love to try on only those things, which will give her the chance to glorify her beauty. Considering those aspects, this year on your niece birthday you thought to present her a crystal made ring. The beauty of the ring is that it casts a perfect white platinum-coated color, which adds oodles of elegance. On top of that, those minutely embossed white Australian crystals add an extra charm to the ring. The best about the ring is that she can adjust the ring size as per the shape of her fingers. Thus, you thought she would be more than happy to have the beautifully studded white ring. Classy shoulder bag:You would hardly see girls carrying a large handbag or a satchel to any parties. Honestly, a teen girl is comfortable with classy looking shoulder bags. But to be frank, it also makes her look so cool at the same time. Therefore, you thought to give a try for your daughter’s birthday. Instead of getting her something else, you thought it would be a wonderful idea to present her a classy red shoulder bag. Coming to the description of the bag, actually, it is made of high quality of synthetic material so that it can be on duty for quite long years. On top of that, it is spacious with two large segmented and 4 small pockets. The closure is also quite user-friendly as it has zip-locked system. The best thing about the bag is that it has a flexible strap so that you can adjust it long or short as per the convenience. Cartoon lock diary:A girl in her teen gets to know about the new phase of her life. She begins to discover so many new things and definitely, she would love to jot those little secretive feelings in a secret diary. Therefore as a friend, you also got a beautiful locked diary for your only best friend. As your friend is a great fan of the movie Frozen so you thought that why not gift her something like that actually. The outer cover of the diary has the bewitching animated paintings of the frozen characters, which at once stuns the eye of the recipient. And the most eye stealing part is the mini lock on the diary. It is again painted in a desirable blue color, which gives a cool look to the dairy at once. Combo for wristwatches:Wristwatches always personify the person as a distinguished character. Now girls in their teens are experimentative by nature especially when it comes to beautifying them. Therefore as an aunt you thought to get a pack of three combo watches for your niece. You thought so because she loves to accessorize according to the color of her dresses. Now the best part is that these watches are in different colors like the black, blue and peach. Talking about the bandit is made of pure leather which adds strength to the wristwatches. On top of that, the watch is designed in a comfortable way so that it can smartly sit well on the wrist. Definitely your niece can have this for parties, weddings or reception this is because it looks superb stylish on her. Scarf necklace stole:Young girls have the fetish to accessorize in the right and eye-catching way. They won't seriously like to look understated therefore you thought that why not gift your elder daughter a scarf necklace stole. The concept is wonderful as she gets the right way to look stylish and trendy. Therefore keeping all the little facts in mind after searching a lot you picked the red color for her as she looks utterly beautiful in that particular color. No doubt one can adjust scarf as per needed to create multiple types of the look. But the red beaded necklace seriously looks eye-catching. On top of that, it is quite friendly for the skin, as well that means the wearer won't get any allergy on wearing it. Therefore you can send gifts to Mumbai and anywhere in India with free shipping.source - https://www.piczasso.com/what-is-the-best-birthday-present-you-can-get-a-girl/

Bhagavad Gita Verse 3.3
 9 September 2019  

Sinless - In Gita Verse 3.3 The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: O sinless Arjuna, I have already explained that there are two classes of men who try to realize the self. Some are inclined to understand it by empirical, philosophical speculation, and others by devotional service.Krishna is saying there are two paths to realize your self, subjectivity. One is Gyan Yoga, and another is Bhakti Yoga.Both of them reaches to themselves.Gyan Yogi is one who adds meditation to thought. He links meditation to the world of thought. He begins to think meditatively. A new practice is added: whatever one does is done with awareness. When the state of thought plus meditation is established the journey towards witnessing begins.Meditation is a change of direction.Whatever meditation is joined to becomes a vehicle for moving towards witnessing.And the Bhakti Yoga – adding meditation to emotion, a deep joining of meditation and emotion, the whirlpool of meditation and feeling! While feeling become meditative.Before saying that there are two paths. He addresses Arjuna ‘SINLESS ARJUNA’ and gave a message to everyone of us that all of us are sinless.What Is Sin?To the Upanishads, it is not related to the doing at all. What you do is irrelevant; what you are is the point. It is not the doing but the being itself that is significant.So what will it mean to call a man a sinner? We mean that he is ignorant, unaware of his own self. Because of this ignorance, his acts become sins. The act can become a sin only because the doer is ignorant, unaware, unconscious, is living in a state of sleep. Ignorance is sin and awareness is virtue. Your acts are irrelevant because they are not central; in the center is your consciousness. If something is wrong with the consciousness, your acts will go wrong. If the consciousness is set right, your acts will follow.So just to go on changing your acts will not lead you anywhere. You can commit a sin, you can repent a sin, you can replace a sin by virtue, by a virtuous act – but it will not be of any meaning for the Upanishads if you remain the same. Unless you change, your consciousness changes, unless you attain a new plane of being, a new plenitude, just a change of your acts is useless.So the Upanishads do not think in terms of acts; they think in terms of your being. Alert, aware, conscious, you are virtuous. Why? – Because the more you are alert and conscious and aware, the less is the possibility of committing a sin. The basic requirement for committing a sin is to be unconscious.For example, you can be angry only if you forget yourself. If you are self-remembering, aware, anger is impossible. It cannot exist with awareness. No coexistence is possible. When you are aware, it is not that you control your anger, restrain your anger, suppress your anger – no! It simply cannot be there. In a fully aware person, anger cannot exist; just as in a fully lighted room darkness cannot exist. The coexistence is impossible.The moment you bring a lamp into the dark room, the darkness is no more there. With the light the darkness cannot exist. And the Upanishads say it is futile and foolish to fight with darkness because you cannot fight with darkness. If you fight you will be defeated. Howsoever strong you may be, you cannot fight darkness because darkness is only the absence of light. Bring the light and darkness disappears.The Upanishads say sin is darkness. Bring the light of consciousness and sin disappears. Do not fight with the sin; do not be concerned directly with the sin; do not think in terms of sin. Otherwise you will feel guilty and it will not be a spiritual growth; rather, it will be a fall.Krishna says to everyone either through Gyan Yoga or by Bhakti Yoga connect through meditation either your thinking or emotion and move towards witnessing.

Cancer
 21 April 2019  

CancerLosing someone close because of cancer is never too easy because it is very hard to deal with atruth like this. Cancer is scariest medical health issue compared to all the other medial health issues. People who have cancer are dying everyday even if they are alive, it becomes very difficult for those people who face this problem because their life completely changes.Cancer is such a kind of health problem which can be cured if it is detected soon but there is no guarantee if the person would be still alive after he or she is cured by cancer. A person who detects that he or she has cancer they break down because there is a reason behind it, because they know that they will leave their family and the love ones because they do not know if they are going to be alive the next day or next week or next month. After knowing they have cancer, they cannot predict anything about their life. Once the person knows that he or she has cancer they do not have any hope left. Because they know even if they are alive, they still are dying with the thought of death. They know if they don’t get cure, they are going to die sooner or later.When someone is cured with cancer, they celebrate it. They celebrate it because they fought for living each second of their life. They are titled as a warrior because they are one. Some people even call them a fighter because they were brave enough to live their life in pain and with a thought of death every day in their mind as soon as their day begins and as soon as they go to sleep. They always had one hope that is to live for a little longer and experience every moment and every second of their life. It is never too easy for someone to be okay when they are facing cancer. It takes a lot to make them happy. They are in pain each and very day of their life and they are sad, depressed with the fact that why did it happened to them and why are they one who are suffering so much.The main reason doctors advise their patients to visit clubs and ask them to be around people who they can always communicate about their problem and are happy around because that might just help them to feel better and increase their chance to live. Some people around us also conduct some small seminars so that they can communicate with all the people who are cancer survivors also who are fighting with cancer so that they can motivate them and boost their confidence level and get back their hope to live. They also encourage them to be more positive and live all the moments of their life happily and with a smile and not with pain, sadness and depression. It just cures you faster if you live each moment happily and enjoy each second of your life with your love ones and close ones.~By. Saloni Maliwal.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 3.25
 1 October 2019  

One Consciousness - In Gita Verse 3.25 As the ignorant perform their duties with attachment to results, the learned may similarly act, but without attachment, for the sake of leading people on the right path.Krishna explains that everyone is required to act then what is the difference? He explains the difference between the ignorant person who act from attachment and experienced person or Buddha who act from non-attachment.Non-attachment means your act is responds to the present moment, without any resistance.Non-resistance is vital because as long as you are in resistance to the present moment, you will be trapped in the little egoic will. The egoic will needs to subside – that’s surrender to the present moment, and surrender to what is. When you align yourself with what is internally, it looks at first almost like a position of weakness, and it can be misinterpreted as something that prevents you from taking effective action. But the acceptance of what is, is totally compatible with responding to whatever the present moment requires. Whatever wants to be created, manifested, done, at this moment – to be aligned with that, you need to first accept whatever form this moment takes.Single out this moment only. For example, when you are ill, you don’t say “I need to accept this illness, the fact that I am ill, that I am suffering from this” because that is a whole conceptual story. All you need to accept is this moment as it is. There is never actually an illness in this moment, there is only a physical condition. There may be pain, there may be weakness, disability, discomfort. Those things may be there, and that’s the only thing you accept. This moment is as it is now.If you are stuck in the mud somewhere, you don’t say, “Okay, I am in the mud, I have to accept it, and here I am – I’m not taking any action because I have to accept what is”. This moment is already always as it is, and there’s nothing you can do about that. That’s what you accept. Then, action that arises has a different energy to it. The will that flows into what you do is no longer egoic. When you have not accepted this moment, the will goes against the Universe – that is what the ego does. It is negative, it fights something that it says shouldn’t be there. If you use negativity, you are trapped in ego. The “little will” has to subside for the more powerful will to flow through and deal with the situation. It creates, it is not isolated from the totality. It is one with the totality. When that operates, another word for that universal will is intelligence. It’s only when you look at a situation, completely accept the is-ness of this moment, and then of course action may be required.Once the opening is there, through acceptance, the next step that you take will be much more powerful. There’s a Buddhist term “right action,” that can only arise out of the right state of Consciousness. You have to get out of the ego first before you can have the right action. The Buddha was talking about that which flows from the awakened state of consciousness. To surrender the little will is to say ‘yes’ to the present moment. It’s not a big thing, just say yes to what is – because it already is anyway. Why complain about something that is? It’s insane, but normal.To give up the egoic will, all you have to do is not complain about what is. Be aligned with the isness – people, situations, whatever – this is already as it is. It’s the inevitability of is. Become friendly with what is, and you become intelligent for the first time.With the simple act of surrender to the inevitability of the present moment, another energy comes. You could call that universal will, you could call that intelligence, you could call that the creative solution to whatever the so-called “problem” is. You could call that power coming in, that is greater than the limited power of your mind. Or it may use your mind, and suddenly you say the right thing, if that’s what the situation requires. Suddenly the words come – where do the words come from? You don’t know what you’re going to say next. They come from a deeper level because that intelligence uses the mind.You and the Universe become one, and as such it creates through you as this form. That’s the beauty of it. When the unmanifested flows into this world, it assumes form. Most thoughts that people have in the unawakened state are repetitive old thoughts, conditioned thinking, conditioned by the past. All you can rely on then is what you have accumulated in the past, you deal with things through conditioned thinking. When the simple act of surrender opens your mind, it can then be used as an instrument. Then, a thought may come in that is original and fresh and new. That is the birth of form. The birth of thought creates the birth of form. The Universe uses you as a vehicle or a channel through which to create. You are one. It can use your mind, and become thought, words, physical things. That’s the way in which the mind can actually be a helpful tool – alignment with the greater Intelligence, the One Consciousness.Krishna tells Arjuna circumstances and act is same to everyone, the difference is attachment and non-attachments. Once you act without resistance your act will be non-attached, alignment with the greater Intelligence, the One Consciousness.
