Crystal Clear

If you put any light near a crystal, it takes on the colour of the light, but as soon as you remove the light, the crystal becomes absolutely clear immediately!

Your mind should be like a crystal... When doing anything, do it a 100%, get totally involved in it, but as soon as you are done, your mind should bounce back into its state of purity, not having any impressions at all from the stuff that you did. This is achievable only thru Meditation.

So Spirituality is not running away from things, it is getting utterly involved, yet staying totally detached (like a swan in water, it's always in water, yet have you ever seen a wet swan?) and maintaining an unshakable serenity all through life. As you grow older, meditation will keep the sharpness of your mind... You can not do much about your body, that will age... but meditation and spirituality will keep your mind fresh... People who don't meditate as they grow older, usually grow cynical and bitter. And they tend to keep repeating things... meditation prevents this, and keeps your mind Crystal Clear!

Om Namah Shivaya Pranayam which gurudev taught us..while doing that observing stiffness in Jaws and face. What could that be ?

Bawa, your last four articles go …deep. Don’t know whether you have incorporated them in your courses. I have attended only Utsav. The swan thing….you said in Utsav hit so deep … was gloomy for next 6 days….now I apply it in many situations.

Do incorporate others in your course. So that it hits our hearts so deep that our mind has no choice but to follow it. Right now I am removing a print of them. Stupid mind is asking too many questions.
Jai Gurudev
