Home- It used to be!

I remember when we rented a home here in Bhopal after my father's demise. My father was a great man and I must say being one of the sons who would follow any command, being the most dedicated and honest my father blessed me with his love and teachings which have stayed with me to guide me in every trouble I face. He has been the ray of hope, that has cherished me and would be forwarded to my family too. Leaving aside how I reached Bhopal I come back to the topic. Home - it used to be.
A new culture has come up with the coming generations - "The Privacy Culture". True, Privacy is needed but it has been wrongly understood. Now a days, If your mother comes up to your room you would say "Mom where's my Privacy". Now we have rooms and we have our privacy!
                                     I must bring to you that in Bhopal I rented a room - a big one but a single one. Those were the days when I was new to this place and my father was no more. The reasons why I had to come up to this place is destiny's venture or say adventure and doesn't make sense to discuss under this topic. I was married and  had a daughter. My brothers used to come to my place as my mother stayed with me. I can certainly cherish the feelings that we had in that single room. We all brothers, with our families use to come together, we would lie on the surface of the room as there was no furniture. But the laughter we had, the love we had, the fights we had, had there own virtue. Virtue that has been lost to "Privacy". At-least that single room was our home but today with many rooms we still cannot make a home - living far away minding our own businesses!
                          We may think that we have established ourselves keeping our privacy sustained, but privacy with whom? Loosing our culture and accepting the new but again not knowing whether the new one would be the right choice! Whom to ask? And why should we ask as it's our Privacy! But again privacy - with whom? Your parents!, Your Relatives!
                       This new culture is in reality making us Selfish. Making us Dumb! And some may call them Businessmen! Why? Because they believe in give and take on equal terms. If you are not beneficial to me I have no business for you, nor do i know You. But business with your relatives, your own family, your love one, your friends? If yes, then who else is left to let you know what's good for you as you have your privacy and you ask for no advice.
                        Slowly and steadily we our loosing our ties, our bonds. And we attribute it to this new culture - "My Privacy". What has brought me to this post is the awakening that Bonds should always be maintained, relations must be preserved as the rarest and the most expensive jewel anyone in the world can have.

I am happy as a baby who knows nothing, Just You

When I knew nothing I just knew You, who shall care. Knowing nothing more than just you is a wonderful feeling my God. As in my Mother- Thanks for being there. I am happy as a child under your love and care. May your teachings, your blessings follow me always as I grow and move ahead for the fulfillment of your set-forth decisions and tasks.

I take the Support of the Name of the One Lord.

Sorat'h, Fifth Mehl: I met the True Guru, by great good fortune, and my mind has been enlightened. No one else can equal me, because I have the loving support of my Lord and Master. ||1|| I am a sacrifice to my True Guru. I am at peace in this world, and I shall be in celestial peace in the next; my home is filled with bliss. ||Pause|| He is the Inner-knower, the Searcher of hearts, the Creator, my Lord and Master. I have become fearless, attached to the Guru's feet; I take the Support of the Name of the One Lord. ||2|| Fruitful is the Blessed Vision of His Darshan; the Form of God is deathless; He is and shall always be. He hugs His humble servants close, and protects and preserves them; their love for Him is sweet to Him. ||3|| Great is His glorious greatness, and wondrous is His magnificence; through Him, all affairs are resolved. Nanak has met with the Perfect Guru; all his sorrows have been dispelled. ||4||5||

The prince who relies upon their words, without having otherwise provided for his security, is ruined

Its our job to Confirm whether our act would result as desired or not.
Whether it really make it to the desired result or not but to be sure that you did what you could do is the feeling of Completeness.
"I am doing everything to get to the Top- I am applying all my efforts- and this is what i can do- and i am doing it with full heart and soul in it- and the rest is on God"
"Because -He is the Only One who knows Whats Good for Me"

" The prince who relies upon their words, without having otherwise provided for his security, is ruined; for friendships that are won by awards, and not by greatness and nobility of soul, although deserved, yet are not real, and cannot be depended upon in time of adversity."

     --- The complete phrase by Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527)

Friendship - Certainly a ship, but u cannot sail it alone. You always need a Companion. But a Faithful Companion. It takes Years to Get One.And if You Got One - He's Your Jewel.

Certainly even Friendship won by awards and not by greatness and nobility of soul is not real. It takes real time to get someone whom you can call a Friend and Who is in true sense a Friend of Your True Nature.

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Thanks for Being There. Thanx for Everything. Mother, You were ever Guiding and Always Will Be.

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly  endless."
Believe me and certainly you will believe Her- Who gave everything for the 'Service to  HumanKind'.
Just have a look at your past and remember the events when you were surprised to see people helping you around with no benefit in return .What worked for you in the time when you were alone. What worked for you when you were in dismay, when you were in pain.

What worked for you?
Not that you were a millionaire, not that you belonged to a status. not that
you used to party your group, not that you wore 'Cartier’s ' with a 'Stuart Hughes'. NOT AT ALL!!

"There was something , really something that worked for You, and it didn'd even cost You?

Those were the Kind Word you spoke, and the Echoes of which can still be heard by the people who were received with your Kind Words. These Kind Words of yours Worked for you , when Nothing Could Work.

Just have Faith and there will be no Confusion

A Prayer for Guidance by Thomas Merton is ever guiding and inspirational. It has made it clear that what ever is happening is at his will - The Almighty's  will.
If we keep in mind - this principle , we may never loose our hope, we may never feel in-confident, we may never loose directions, we may never crib about misfortunes, or the unlucky we feel.
As he writes:
"And the fact that I think I am following your will

Does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you

Does in fact please you."

So true - Almighty is the Greatest Forgiver. Even a small bit of the goodness we show , even a small bit of faith we show rejuvenates our life, brings colours to our lives.
"But I believe that the desire to please you, Does in fact please you." Here we can see that just the desire to please him , in fact pleases him. Just the remembrance shows out the right path. We are his children and at times when we loose our directions , just a say and he's there to guide us as "My Father would Do".

The Decision Making

Believe me these guys are not 'The Devil and the Angle',  nor are the 'Corporates and the Customers', nor do they belong to the 'Nataraja Pencils'.
These are just the 'Travellers who are in need of  the True Insight' . Or otherwise in short, are in question - 'This is worth doing or not?', 'A Yes or  a No?', 'This is the right Direction or not?'
Or do you think, it says about: One who creates his own world based on his ethics and The One who destroys his own world'. Certainly somewhere this thought emerges upon.!

Otherwise something that's not  in Consious but is Closer to Your True Insight - What do think and how do you see a thing.
I must say 'These short words' are 'Not at all Short' - in the Real Sense. Still the Insight Search Analyses it in a different way-'The Topic is : Create Your Own World - A Decision Making'.
