The Zen Story Continued

Posted: August 29, 2014 in Motivation

One day, Mara, the Evil One, was going through a village with his attendant when he saw a man doing walking meditation whose face was lit up in wonder. The man had just discovered something lying in front of him. Mara’s attendant asked what that was and Mara replied, “A piece of truth.” His attendant thought a while and asked, “Does it not bother you when someone finds a piece of truth, O Evil One?” Unfazed, Mara replied, “No, because right after that, they usually make a religion out of it.”

Sure enough, the man picked up the piece of truth and took it home where he cleaned and polished it till it gleamed more than a diamond. Then he began travelling all over the country preac6b0f429afe4ef37afd502002f1aaf50e_1408949961hing about the truth until he had gathered a few close disciples around him and a large following of people who quickly became his devotees and, over time, the movement turned into a religion.

Seeing this, Mara’s attendant grew fearful. “It’s exactly as you had predicted, O Evil One,” he exclaimed. “But what will happen to us now that Good has yet another name and designation?” Mara smiled victoriously. “What will happen now,” he said, “is that they will begin fighting among themselves and splinter into different denominations. Then they will fight against other religions, and as their mutual hatred grows, we will prosper and emerge stronger.”

Then he gave another victory smile and added, “For, you see, Evil has never had any infighting or any denominations. Our singular unity is the main reason we have been around for so long without any Good ever being able to vanquish us.”



सही दिशा

Posted: May 16, 2014 in Motivation

एक पहलवान जैसा, हट्टा-कट्टा, लंबा-चौड़ा व्यक्ति सामान लेकर किसी स्टेशन पर उतरा। उसनेँ एक टैक्सी वाले से कहा कि मुझे साईँ बाबा के मंदिर जाना है।

टैक्सी वाले नेँ कहा- 200 रुपये लगेँगे। उस पहलवान आदमी नेँ बुद्दिमानी दिखाते हुए कहा- इतने पास के दो सौ रुपये, आप टैक्सी वाले तो लूट रहे हो। मैँ अपना सामान खुद ही उठा कर चला जाऊँगा।

वह व्यक्ति काफी दूर तक सामान लेकर चलता रहा। कुछ देर बाद पुन: उसे वही टैक्सी वाला दिखा, अब उस आदमी ने फिर टैक्सी वाले से पूछा – भैया अब तो मैने आधा से ज्यादा दुरी तर कर ली है तो अब आप कितना रुपये लेँगे?RightWay-RoadSign

टैक्सी वाले नेँ जवाब दिया- 400 रुपये।

उस आदमी नेँ फिर कहा- पहले दो सौ रुपये, अब चार सौ रुपये, ऐसा क्योँ।

टैक्सी वाले नेँ जवाब दिया- महोदय, इतनी देर से आप साईँ मंदिर की विपरीत दिशा मेँ दौड़ लगा रहे हैँ जबकि साईँ मँदिर तो दुसरी तरफ है।

उस पहलवान व्यक्ति नेँ कुछ भी नहीँ कहा और चुपचाप टैक्सी मेँ बैठ गया।

इसी तरह जिँदगी के कई मुकाम मेँ हम किसी चीज को बिना गंभीरता से सोचे सीधे काम शुरु कर देते हैँ, और फिर अपनी मेहनत और समय को बर्बाद कर उस काम को आधा ही करके छोड़ देते हैँ। किसी भी काम को हाथ मेँ लेनेँ से
पहले पुरी तरह सोच विचार लेवेँ कि क्या जो आप कर रहे हैँ वो आपके लक्ष्य का हिस्सा है कि नहीँ।

हमेशा एक बात याद रखेँ कि दिशा सही होनेँ पर ही मेहनत पूरा रंग लाती है और यदि दिशा ही गलत हो तो आप कितनी भी मेहनत का कोई लाभ नहीं मिल पायेगा। इसीलिए दिशा तय करेँ और आगे बढ़ेँ कामयाबी आपके हाथ जरुर थामेगी।

You Are Never Powerless

Posted: April 4, 2014 in Motivation

You are never powerless because you have choice at every point. You’ve even had the power to make choices to be powerless. Why not make a choice now to be powerful? Why not use your power to bring your reference point back to you, to claim your strengths, your abilities, your gifts and your talents? If you will own your power, you will find that you can change anything.

Step into your power

For you to step into your power, you must take your power back from those warped and twisted definitions of power. You’ve had power to just give away and you need to take it back from all the authorities to whom you have given it to. Below is a powerful technique given by a group of non-physical beings that I am friends with called Galexis:

1. In your mind, see the person or thing out there that you are giving energy to. If it’s a thing, then personify it.
2. Imagine the power as a ball of light and mentally reach out and grab the power from them and bring it back into you.
3. While doing this, take a big in breath while saying, “Power that I gave to you, return to Me. Power Return to Me.” Repeat this three times.
4. Now, sense yourself as being really large, about 15-20 feet and see yourself looking down at this person. You’ve gotten bigger because you took your power back. Notice that they are not as solid or as vibrant because all their intensity of power was your energy.
5. In your mind, thank them for showing you where you gave your power away and for the opportunity to take it back.
6. Then forgive them.
7. And lastly, forgive yourself for giving your power away to them.
