Knowledge Byte

We were asking Guruji about the difference between a desire and an expectation...
He said, Desires are always for something nice or good, but an expectation can be for something bad... Like you may expect the share market to crash, i dont think many will desire that! :)

Then He went on to say that there is really no difference between desire, fear and anxiety!!

He said that the mind (or that aspect of yourself that manifests stuff into the physical realm) cannot distinguish between a desire, some fear or an anxiety... so for example, if you are riding a bicycle, and are thinking, oh i should not bang into the pavement, i should not bang into the pavement, i should not bang......... The mind incorrectly assumes that that's exactly what you want and manifests that! and so you bang! :)

This little byte of Knowledge, this insight can explain every single happening in our life! The mind CANNOT differentiate between a desire, a fear or an anxiety, and will merrily manifest whatever it is that you are feeling and thinking strongly about...

We have the utsav in Bangalore in an open air place, and off late there have been a few clouds and some rumblings of thunder... Rashmin was listening to me while i was talking about what Guruji had said and remarked oh i hope there will be no rain... and i said thats it! if you think that, there is going to be rain! :)

and he said, oh this is complicated... what do i think!?... Think about clear skies! is what i told him...

We are all so used to thinking "negatively"... hoping, wishing for things NOT to happen... and exactly that manifests into our lives!

Reprogram yourself to wishing and hoping for certain things to happen!! and then let go of the desire, 'coz feverishness for the desire will make you go for certain into "what ifing" ... and soon the thoughts and feeling about it not happening become strong :)

Guruji once had remarked, whenever you wish for something, always wish, "Let me have this or better!" :) You may wish for a million dollars and the Universe actually wanted to give you a 100 million, but since your wish is for just a million, thats all you get... :)

Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu!!! ...or better!!!!! :)

Jai Gurudeva!

Bawa, Amazing, amazing knowledge. I always used to wonder why somethings happened inspite of my fervent wish that it should not happen. That's why it happened, now I understand!!!

Bawa, then does that mean that the feeling behind that thought is not given any importance. For example, I used to wish I could be alone when I was surrounded by too many people. And boy, did I get it!! I was made so lonely I screamed for help.

But I wished I could be alone so that I can be happy. So what happens to the feeling then? The mind does not give any importance to the feeling behind the thought?

I always wonder about this!!

wonderful....no negative thoughts from now on ! btw. Bawa is it an intentional decision to have Google ads on your blog ? If not, they can be turned off . Google indexes your content and posts these truly crazy ads (from the perspective of your blog) on your site, which I believe distracts (and sometimes contradicts) from the otherwise wonderful content on your blog .

Examples :

Scientology on YouTube
Learn about beliefs, humanitarian efforts & more. Watch online videos

Analysis of meat
Analyse your meat and get info on key components affecting quality

jai gurudev bau..

i agree..it happens so many times no...u think of something that u dont want and lo and behold...that is EXACTLY wat u get...
and before i had seen THE SECRET i always used to be flummoxed by this....and it used to be so damn frustrating...now if i get something i dont want..atleast i know i got it because i thought about it...hehe

but bau...isnt it really difficult to shift ur thought process...i mean...come to think fo it...for years we have been trained to be pessimisstic and EXPECT the worst....i m finding it quite tiresome actually...dunno wat is it tht i m doing wrong...plz guide on how to really do this...
