From the class, “Mind-Body DEMYSTIFIED Part II”, Oct 19th, 2013
“New slipper will bite” – says a Tamil saying.
However, a lady who can speak only Telugu told me otherwise.
Girija went to a local temple, leaving her old slippers outside the temple premises, when she stood before the deity, praying, a thought appeared in her mind whether her slippers would be safe; another thought flashed saying, “they will be; who will take these old chappals”.
Strangely, when she returned from the temple, she found her old slippers missing. So, she had to walk a bit under the hot sun, searching for a shoe shop, where she could buy herself new slippers.
Surprisingly, she found her slippers in the entrance of the shop.
I just wanted to tell you here, she could talk to inanimate objects.
She heard her slippers saying, ‘You left me unsafe, thinking I am too old to be stolen. See what I had done for your callousness. Do you understand my value now?”
So, we need to learn to respect inanimate objects also. For example, we throw the container after using all the remedies, without even saying thanks to the container. Don’t do that.
Next time, say thanks to the container or for the matter whatever stuff you use and then dispose them.

Understand the messages with the help of Bach Flower Remedies
Take Bach Flower Remedies VERVAIN and HEATHER to understand those messages.
Put the pills of Vervain and Heather in a bottle of water. Take it with you.
Visit your neighboring park and with a research attitude note down all the words that you hear.
Sip the water now and then.
All words that you have captured, will give you a beautiful meaning to your life.
Alternatively, go to a temple and listen to the conversations that are going around.
Do this exercise, once in two months.
There are always three view points to an event
An event can be in the form of an incident or a conversation that we overhear or behavior of a person that we are attracted to and notice.
For an event, there can be three different viewpoints about it.
One is ours. When we analyze from our viewpoint, then it will be termed as a judgment about the event.
When we analyze from other man’s point of view, then it will be termed as an understanding of the event.
Finally, the third perspective would be the viewpoint of the divinity that’s expressed through the event.
The last viewpoint is the subject of our discussion.
Why we need to know divine messages behind an event?
There will be a lesson waiting for us, on how we should think and act, so that our journey moves towards divinity. To do that, we have to observe our life as a third person.
These divine messages also can come from children or sometimes even at the sight of a bird or an animal.
Do a bit of an analysis
If we listen dispassionately to a conversation that falls into our ears, there will be a divine message waiting for us.
Though, we have to do a bit of analysis and dig that message out.
Do that by asking the question – what is the divine message waiting for me here to be unraveled?
Analyzing like this is nothing but a form of meditation.
This helps us to go deeper within one self, making the mind travel within.
In general, the mind has the tendency to go out. But this exercise helps us to take it the reverse direction.
Therefore, a dispassionate observation is a must for us to follow.
Let you be guided by divine messages every day in every way
Divine message guides us in every way.
Daily seeking the message of God and keeping a Spiritual Journal is necessary.
This will help us to understand the messages delivered by god and direct us in various ways during the course of our lives.

Once there was a sweeper in the Well Known temple and he was very sincere and devoted. Every time he saw thousands of devotees coming to take darshan of the Lord, he thought that the Lord is standing all the time and giving darshan and He must be feeling very tired. So one day very innocently he asked the Lord whether he can take the place of the Lord for a day so that the Lord can have some relief and rest. The Deity of Temple replied, “I do not mind taking a break. I will transform you like myself, but you must do one thing. You must just stand here like me, smile at everyone and just give benedictions. Do not interfere with anything and do not say anything. Remember you are the deity and you just have faith that I have a master plan for everything.” The sweeper agreed to this.
The next day the sweeper took the position of the deity and a rich man came and prayed to the Lord. He offered a nice donation and prayed that his business should be prosperous. While going, the rich man inadvertently left his wallet full of money right there. Now the sweeper in the form of deity could not call him and so he decided to control himself and keep quiet.
Just then a poor man came and he put one coin in the Hundi and said that it was all he could afford and he prayed to the Lord that he should continue to be engaged in the Lord’s service. He also said that his family was in dire need of some basic needs but he left it to the good hands of the Lord to give some solution. When he opened his eyes, he saw the wallet left by the rich man. The poor man thanked the Lord for His kindness and took the wallet very innocently. The sweeper in the form of the Deity could not say anything and he had to just keep smiling.
At that point a sailor walked in. He prayed for his safe journey as he was going on a long trip. Just then the rich man came with the police and said that somebody has stolen his wallet and seeing the sailor there, he asked the police to arrest him thinking that he might have taken it. Now the sweeper in the form of Deity wanted to say that the sailor is not the thief and he could not say and he was greatly frustrated. The sailor looked at the Lord and asked why he an innocent person is being punished. The rich man looked at the Lord and thanked Him for finding the thief. The sweeper in the deity form could no more tolerate and he thought that even if the real Lord had been here, he would have definitely interfered and hence he started speaking and said that the sailor is not the thief but it was the poor man who took away the wallet. The rich man was very thankful as also the sailor.
In the night, the real Lord came and He asked the sweeper how the day was. The sweeper said, “I thought it would be easy, but now I know that your days are not easy, but I did one good thing.” Then he explained the whole episode to the Lord. The Lord became very upset on hearing this whereas the sweeper thought the Lord would appreciate him for the good deed done.
The Lord asked, “Why did you not just stick to the plan? You had no faith in me. Do you think that I do not understand the hearts of all those who come here? All the donation which the rich man gave was all stolen money and it is only a fraction of what he really has and he wants me to reciprocate unlimitedly. The single coin offered by the poor man was the last coin he was having and he gave it to me out of faith. The sailor might not have done anything wrong, but if the sailor were to go in the ship that night he was about to die because of bad weather and instead if he is arrested he would be in the jail and he would have been saved form a greater calamity. The wallet should go to the poor man because he will use it in my service. I was going to reduce the rich man’s karma also by doing this and save the sailor also. But you cancelled everything because you thought you know my plan and you made your own plans.”
God has plans and justice for everyone….we just have to have patience…………
– From an email sent by MM Elango
We always do everything partially. We believe in God. We have trust in God. We have bakthi. But nothing is total. We say we are surrendering. Only one part of the mind surrenders. The other parts will doubt and prevent our total surrender.
When we have total surrender we accept what is happening and when we accept instead of resisting, God’s plan is revealed. When you totally surrender, you will not question anything but witness anything that is happening.
Is it possible to reach that stage? I don’t know. But we have to try and keep on trying.
Daily Pray, “Let all parts of my mind surrender”. With this intention, chant the mantra, “Om Hum Namaha”. Hum is the bija mantra which will make one to surrender to god. All the inflexible resisting doubting parts will join the surrendering part.
When you wake up in the morning say, “This is the God-given day. Whatever I do, I do it for him.”
