Finding Our Light -Spirituality

It is a sure thing that darkness and the light are equally sacred but that does not mean we benefit by becoming complacent about the darkness we may meet in ourselves or others. Others’ darkness is a constant reminder to ourselves that we need to overcome our own.  Yet, often we are complacent about our darkness and oftentimes, we accept it as the way things are. Why hurry? we lament.  What’s the point of life is there’s only suffering! And what does it matter if there’s a little dust on the mirror? Still, in the end we will  need to cleanse our mirror. The all important  mirror of perception will not cleanse itself, only we can purify ourselves. We must bring light into the darkness and that is no easy task. There has always been the path of consciousness and the  flow of illumination or light. The coexistence of darkness and light indeed creates a crazy dance in which the clarity of light is invited to lead, but it does not create a higher order . ~Eve

He who knows this is one with the ONE.” – Maitri Upanishad

One of the most beautiful meditations from Sathya Sai Baba.

 

“Let it be in the hours before dawn. This is preferable because the body is refreshed after sleep, and the dealings of daytime will not yet have impinged on you. Have a lamp or a candle before you with an open, steady, and straight flame. Sit in front of the candle in the lotus posture or any other comfortable sitting position. Look on the flame steadily for some time, and closing your eyes try to feel the flame inside you between your eyebrows. Let it slide down into the lotus of your heart, illuminating the path. When it enters the heart, imagine that the petals of the lotus open out by one, bathing every thought, feeling, and emotion in the light and so removing darkness from them. There is no space for darkness to hide.

 

The light of the flame becomes wider and brighter. Let it pervade your limbs. Now those limbs can never indulge in dark, suspicious, and wicked activities; they have become instruments of light and love. As the light reaches up to the tongue, falsehood vanishes from it. Let it rise up to the eyes and the ears and destroy all the dark desires that infest them and which lead you to perverse sights and childish conversation. Let your head be surcharged with light and all wicked thoughts will flee there from. Imagine that the light is in you more and more intensely. Let it shine all around you and let it spread from you in ever widening circles, taking in your loved ones, your kith and kin, your friends and companions, your enemies and rivals, strangers, all living beings, the entire world.

 

“Since the light illumines all the senses every day so deeply and so systematically, a time will soon come when you can no more relish dark and evil sights, yearn for dark and sinister tales, crave for base, harmful, deadening toxic food and drink, handle dirty demeaning things, approach places of ill-fame and injury, or frame evil designs against anyone at any time. Stay on in that thrill of witnessing the light everywhere. If you are adoring God in any form now, try to visualize that form in the all-pervasive light. For Light is God; God is Light.”

Om Shanti

  1. Well things come to those who wait, one of the questions I got on my mind to ask you it’s precisely what kind of practice you do, besides the Bhakti aspect of been a disciple of Sathya Sai Baba.
    Lovely meditation. 🙂

      1. I praise your honesty, not too many people would admit to that. One of the benefits to be in the presence of a great enlightened being, it’s the enthusiasm, and the spiritual, full of light atmosphere that he/she generates. 🙂

  2. It had been busy day
    I was in Portugal ! no not a holyday ! I was working
    We ate out in the evening and the music in the background
    was hypnotic
    Sublime music “Boom Boom Boom ”

    Next morning when I woke up in the Hotel I heard in my mind
    “Boom Boom Boom Boom”

    LESSONS FROM GOD – SAI BABA- & the Boom Boom Music

    That’s funny where is my Guru Mantra
    which I have been chanting for many months now ?
    I searched for my Mantra in my consciousness and it was not there.
    It was missing.
    I could not even remember which mantra I had chanted thousands of rosaries !

    All I could hear was the “Boom Boom ”
    ” Baba what’s happened I can’t hear my Guru Mantra its vanished “.

    I looked in the Hotel room
    I looked under the bed ,
    I looked under the sofa
    I looked everywhere – No Guru Mantra.
    It had become lost.

    “Baba help” I cried
    Baba pointed into a Dark corner of the hotel room and lifted a veil
    I saw the consciousness of the BOOM BOOM music
    had cornered my Guru mantra and huddled this into the corner

    As I rescued my mantra, it started into my mind again
    Baba spoke ” Amarjit, The Boom Boom song has become a negative mantra by the millions of people
    who chanted this in lower consciousness
    It too has gained strength and power.
    It started feeding energy from your Guru Mantra
    In future you as a Spiritual Warrior must always be careful ”
    Do not leave your self ungrounded like last night

    Enjoy but be Always Grounded & Focused
    For you are not alone-even if you think you are alone
    You are being watched at all times by
    inter-dimensional beings
    Their Food is ENERGY especially of Spiritual Warriors. ( 13/08/2016)
