A Roller Coaster!

Every time someone confronts us with anger or violence a game starts. A game between that persons anger and our love, between their violence and our peace...

And when we are stronger, then the opposite person has no choice but to drop their anger and love us! They have no choice but to let go of their violence and bask in the bliss of the peace we are!

Its a game we play with the world... pit the power of our Sadhana, the depth of our silence and the magic of Guruji's Grace against their ignorance and apathy... We are yet but a few, but we are strong... and all that it takes for few to become many is time... and the will to make a difference and the shakti to follow through on that will and actually go ahead and make that difference!! and boy! we have that! :)

Focus, Skill and Hard work allows us to score almost every time... Its quite an exciting game and the outcome is certain too... But the journey to our victory is really interesting, with many exciting twists and turns... a spiritual rollercoaster, but we have our seat belts fastened through our Sadhana, Seva and Satsang and so we are utterly safe and can really sit back and enjoy every moment of this wild ride called Life (with the Art of Living :))!


Couldn't resist putting this other photo here as well... Would love to go on a ride on this one with all of you! :)


Jai Gurudeva!

I remember in Hrishikesh YES!++, 07 when GURUJI came n gave us a surprise visit to us at the course,one of the participants shouted "I LOVE YOU GURUJI" n Guruji with a naughty smile on His face told him "You don't have any other option".

Like that this line is applicable to you too Bau, you don't leave an option open, but to love you.

You are one of the Super inspiration of my life, who in fact keeps on Inspiring by sharing the awesome n freshly baked knowledge :):)
SIMPLY Loveee.... you
Jai Gurudev

surbhi said...

jaigurudev bawa !
how is it that every time something happens with me during the day and i come back and read your blog,and its just about what happened with me on that day.its just like guruji's talks,where the answers come before even asking the question.
knowledge is so powerful,and when it converts into action it becomes wisdom.
thank you for doing this whole blog thing....its simply superb to connect this ways.
i feel as if you are writting just for me !
love you a lot :) :)

aparna said...

Mamta said...

very interesting .....my mind went blank for a while after reading this....one of the few things which struck me hard , especially the lines " Its a game we play with the world... pit the power of our Sadhana, the depth of our silence and the magic of Guruji's Grace against their ignorance and apathy... We are yet but a few, but we are strong... and all that it takes for few to become many is time..."

Thanks Bau !!!

Hi Bau
First of all a very happy new year..:)
Secondly, the roller coaster pic that you have uploaded reminded me of 'its' ride. That pic is of roller coaster from Cosmoworld, Yokohama, Japan. Even, I also have a couple of pics of the same roller coaster and surrounding area. That was my first roller coaster ride and it was just amazing. This pic reminded me of those wonderful days in Tokyo.
Thanks
Jai Gurudeva

gauri said...

the photo is tempting me to go for the ride....just thought that with our 5 S's we really don't realize that we are in the roller coaster ride because for us it is but natural to feel safe and soaked in Grace and feel the magic of surrender.....

Pankaj said...

Namaste,Bau!
Wouldn't say that this post could have come at a much better time than this!
For me, it has long been a ride on this roller coaster with each dip taking me deeper within myself and every crest bringing out the best in me!
Thank you for being the lovely, inspiring 'bau' that you have become for me!
Love you loads!
Jai Gurudev!
