QnA - 2

Q. Why is it taking you so long to come back to New Zealand?

Hmmm... New Zealand would be nice to go back to for sure, but dont u think it would be nicer for all of you to come to India?! :) YES!+ Winter Break will be last week of December... See that u are there with bindi and anyone else who cares to come! :) :)

Q. Why is it that we lack self confidence, and have a low self esteem?... however, when a person is confident, and has a high self esteem, they appear as egotistical (or at least we perceive them as being so).how is it possible to be half - half.... to have confidence in ourselves, and to not be/seem as though we have a big ego?

Lack of confidence and low self esteem happen when you regularly do not fulfill commitments that you have made to yourself and others... When you are ruled more by your feelings... So simply seeing to it that you do what you said you would do, will bring a tremendous boost in your confidence levels and your self esteem, and other people’s comments will not bother you, or even if they do, not for any considerable time.

There is a vast difference between a person who has confidence and self esteem and someone who simply has a big ego... An ego is that which separates, a confident person will be able to win people over and take everyone with him... Infact usually an egotistical person is a person who has almost no confidence or self esteem and tries to cover that up with being arrogant!

Do your Sadhana, Seva and Satsang and come on a few Adv courses a year and you will find that you start to become what you want to become a confident, wonderful human being!

Q. Is it right to trap a cockroach in a container, and suffocate it to death? - slow death, but that way, it prevents them from spreading their eggs, were we to squash them)... are we still liberating them?

According to me, better to squash it and clean up...

Q. I am a volunteer for YES!+, and due to family conditions i get depressed a lot, doing the course has helped me a lot but still my problem exists and it affects my health and becomes a hindrance when i try to concentrate while doing Kriya... Please help.

Depression happens when you think too much “What about me?”
Do your Sadhana, Seva and Satsang... Consciously think and do more for others and you will find that your depression will quickly vanish!
Also DONT concentrate while doing Kriya, just do it effortlessly and easily, and do Kriya everyday, be very regular with it. Whatever thoughts that may come do not resist... finally, check your diet... see that you are eating good healthy veggie food at proper time and that u are drinking plenty of water... other than that, just relax and smile and you will be fine! :)

Q. Jai Gurudev Bau...Is ORGAN DONATION justifiable spiritually???Isnt it better if you donate your body organs to someone in need then bury it in the ground???Does it affect your spiritual growth or harm the recipient soul???

Really no idea about this, but when the intention is clean and you wish to help, I don’t think that it could harm either the person who is donating or the person who is receiving

Q. Its like this. I feel in aol lots of politics happen in each centre and i actually get discouraged. why not we youngsters do seva at villages? we need to bridge the gap between rural youth n urban youth. I feel after coming to aol I get hurt more and demotivated especially here when staying away from my family.
Please Help...jgd bawa

Lets take this one thing at a time:
We do Seva because we love Guruji and we want to spread His precious Knowledge to the world... Guruji doesnt exclude anyone, and do some troublemakers may crop up time and again... If this stops you from doing Seva, it means that these people, and their actions and opinions matter to you MORE than your love for Guruji or your commitment to spread His Knowledge... Is that really true?
Here is where all our course points can be experienced in action! :)
And yes, if you wish to do Seva in villages you are welcome to join the YLTP team but do remember that there may be politics there as well :)...
As far as staying away from family is concerned, just redefine "family", and you will never be away from them!
Soooo accept the problem, and take intelligent, appropriate action and do remember to relax and smile...

Q. In life many a times, we know that somethings are not good for us..! but still we go ahead and do it.,..! when we all know that we have to work hard & smart to become successful, why is it that only a few actually follow the path and get there??

Laziness? Compromising long term pleasure for short term apparent joy? Plain vanilla stupidity? :)
Cmon, buck yourself up and get to work and get where you want to be... Anything is possible with hard/smart work... And dont worry Guruji will provide the good luck... Thats whats called Grace!
Jai Gurudeva!
