Thoughts Affined to Emotional Sympathy

While working, our objectives seem to be far away and difficult to achieve; even the benefits accrued from our labor seem to be much delayed. Many of us tend to forget that such hard earned benefits out of our labor will give be long lasting contentment. In the journey towards achieving our goal, certain shortcuts may sometimes come our way and attract us. But, we must stay determined on our chosen path in the wake of such deceptive temptations.
If we focus and concentrate on our objective then no hurdles shall be able to dissuade us. We shall become more and more convinced towards our choice. We would learn appropriate use of time and opportunities.
When we concentrate the heat of sun’s rays on one focal point they are capable of burning that point. Similarly, if we collect and concentrate our will power and energy on our aim we are sure to achieve success.

Once, a wealthy man came to Mahatma Anandswami. He was the owner of several factories. All his sons were pursuing the business well. His wife had passed away previously. In spite of prosperity all around, his heart was not at peace. His hunger and sleep had gone. He humbly intimated his distress and ailment to the great saint.
Mahatma Anandswami said, “In your life, you did give importance to action and labor but not to the emotions. Good company and hearing religious discourses only nourish the thoughts.
Now start giving away love, money and labor in order to remove the inner dryness. Give affection to all, go among the orphans and the poor, help them to be self-reliant. Put your physical efforts also in these noble works, as much as you can. Then see that your hunger will be returned to you and you will have a sound sleep.”
The rich man did accordingly and consequently the miraculous transformation, that he experienced, gave him a great peace and happiness which he had never experienced before.

Friends, Most of the time, your mind is consumed with of all types of things, topics and events. What others have done or said is most common occupation of your mind. When you are at home, you will think of your shop or office. While at work, you may worry about whether your children have reached home safely. Thoughts, memories and imaginations pertaining to relatives, friends, foes, celebrities, current affairs, reactions and to past interactions with people, plans for future gatherings, expectations from others, all of this is what your mind is engaged with all of the time. Your mind is always busy thinking one thing or another, but it is never looking at itself. When will it experience its own existence?
During my seclusion in the Himalayas, my Master asked me to forget about the world, my home, my family, everything. I obeyed him wholeheartedly.  This unconditional surrender helped me realize my soul-light.
