Jhankar beats – devotion to the music does not mean only creating it in mind. It also means the hard work associated with beating the drums for hours and hours for practice. This of course requires strength, stamina, vigor while continuously improving the music skills. Don’t fool yourself by compartmentalizing spirituality and physical strength. How are you going to understand the very material – physical force of Kundalini – the highest form of spiritual development? So discard the obsolete beliefs of only mind power- have integrated power of mind, body and spirit. True power. True gnosis. Best of the both worlds, dear!
Trivedi or Chaturvedi – knowledge of Ved and Upasna of Ved are quite different. One is knowing the truth and the other is living the truth in every moment. So your level of knowledge is good but more than that you should live your knowledge. Even if you grasp just one shloka or sentence from scriptures and live with it, you are much better than the person who has read the scriptures a million times.
If you learn the truth of ‘All Is One’ but do not practice it in this practical life – that knowledge does not ripen as wisdom. Wisdom is applied knowledge – lived truth. Wisdom is earned – wisdom can never be taught or passed by mouth or by deeksha. It has to be earned by living the life, learning from mistakes and being with the moment. Each moment has potential of leveraging the best of your abilities and sprout the seeds of wisdom.
Handfuls of such moments are enough to transform your entire life – inside out. So kill the boredom, mechanical life which runs on ‘auto-pilot’ mode. Be still, be active. Marry the Shiva and Shakty aspects in each moment – and the moment will blast into blissful existence, experience, expression and evolution.
Take care of ‘one’ moment. It will take care of your past and future. Do not dwindle when the moment brings you to face challenges. Just ‘be’ and that challenge will turn into golden opportunity to meet your true Self.
Las Vegas is famous for game of luck. Who ever wins the game of luck? Those who play! So even luck requires efforts, will, intention and dedication. There is nothing written on rocks. All moments are in flux – waiting for you to choose what to write on this flowing river of life – your destiny – written by you. Amen!
