If one is content then how can quest for spirituality arise⁉️✨😇🙏

There are levels of contentment. 

Frustration cannot take you anywhere, if it leads you anywhere at all, it leads you to more frustration! 

To get out of frustration, you need wisdom. And if wisdom doesn’t give you contentment, then it is no wisdom at all. 

Even a drop of wisdom should bring you contentment.

Contentment does not mean lethargy or lack of enthusiasm.

 Unfortunately, we think contentment is a sort of a dull state of peace; that is not the case. Contentment is not opposed to dynamism or the spirit of enquiry.

 The spirit of enquiry is not necessarily frustration or lack of satisfaction. 


You can be content and still be in quest of the highest; that is possible!

Can wisdom happen instantly? Is it the same with enlightenment⁉️⁉️✨🙏😇

Yes, it can be gradual also!

 The other day, someone was telling me, I realized that I am happy all the time now, which I never was before!” 

A sudden realization comes that gradually you have become more and more happy. One day you find yourself saying, 

“I am so happy, so centered; nothing can shake me, nothing can take my smile away!” And then you are there!Sometimes, 

there is a flash of lightning, and suddenly you see things, and then it disappears. Sometimes it is like when the sun rises, dawn comes first, then gradually darkness disappears, and day dawns very gradually, and that stays! So both phenomena are there. 

For some, it can come as an electrical transformation, for others it could be a gradual change. 


Sometimes you don’t even notice it, but one day, you say, “Wow! Aho!” Just like what is said in Ashtavakra, “Aho! Yes, I got it!”

How to deal with Jealousy⁉️⁉️😩✨😇🙏

Be friendly with those who are progressing and who are happy, and have compassion for those who are unhappy. 

Don’t be friendly with people who are complaining and negative in their mindset because if you are friendly with them you also get into that mode.

 So, for people who are miserable, have compassion.

If your friend is progressing why should you be jealous? 

Would you like your friends being jealous of your progress? 

Just ask this one question to yourself.

I want to tell you an incident: once a boy was very unhappy and his parents brought him to me. 

This boy always used to get medals in sports but this time he lost to his friend. 

So I asked him this simple question, “Why are you unhappy?”

He said, “I didn’t get the prize”.

I asked, “Who got it”, to which he said that his friend got it. 

I said, “That means you are unhappy that your friend got the prize, that suddenly woke him up. 

“What do you want? You want your friends to be happy when you win or you want your friends to be unhappy when you win?”

He said, “I want my friends to be happy if I win the race”.

I said, “So, now that your friend has won the race why are you not happy?”

There was a sudden shift in the mindset of that boy. 


I’m telling you this is what is happening in this world: we don’t reflect on our self and that little awareness makes it all so different. 

The whole scenario changes, yes.

Can I Be dispassionate and enthusiastic both at the Same Time⁉️⁉️✨🙏😇

Yes, don’t you see that in so many people here, who are totally dispassionate, and yet full of enthusiasm? Absolutely! Children have this. 

When they are crying, the tears haven’t even disappeared from their cheeks, and they start smiling and laughing also. 

This is a perfect example of dispassion, and enthusiasm. 

If you don’t have dispassion, then brooding continues; you continue being unhappy. 


It is dispassion that helps you come to the moment, and switch gears

What To Do When Your Children Start Comparing themselves With Others⁉️⁉️✨😇🙏

You have to tell children that you can only give them this much and they shouldn’t compare themselves with others.

It is important that you don’t give them any false hope. At the same time, we can give them a dream. 

If you pass or do this, maybe you will get it. 

Here lies the importance of bringing them up with that sensitivity and belongingness. 

That is why I say, make your children participate in your life instead of teaching them, then they will not even ask you. 

They should be a participant in your life, then they will be sensitive towards you, rather than putting a demand on you.

Before you become a good father or mother, you need to become a good uncle or aunt. You should communicate more with the friends of your children.

 They will listen to you. Suppose, if your son or daughter’s friends have any wrong habit, you can influence them to change. 


They will listen to you more than their own parents.

A Violence Free World🌏 ❌🔥 ✨😇🙏

I have this crazy  idea… a world without violence. 

This might appear to be utopian thinking, but we need to dream and we will get there! 

If we instill pride in being non-violent, in being compassionate, in being helpful to others, our lives will take a new direction. And that should be our unwavering commitment.⠀

It is saddening to see the impact of gun violence on our families and society. 

An ABC news report indicates that there are more gun retail stores than grocery stores in the U.S. 

When we have not provided education in non-violence, or equipped people with tools to control their aggressive tendencies, we cannot afford to have so many gun stores making it easy to pursue deadly acts of violence.⠀

Aggressive tendencies can occur in anybody; it is quite natural. 

But one should be taught how to handle that aggressive tendency in a healthy way. 

When conflict arises in the mind of an individual, perception, observation and expression are impacted. 

This in turn impacts communication with the other party. In a conflict zone, the first thing that is needed for resolution is an improvement in the communication between the parties. 

This can happen only when the mind is calm and is able to respond, rather than react. In order for the mind to be calm, mental traumas need to be relieved. 

The rhythmic breathing and meditation techniques  have been quite effective with relieving mental and emotional distress.⠀

The ignorant are fanatically religious, the so called intelligentsia are fashionably atheist, and the wise are genuinely spiritual. 

It is time that we encourage our young people, our children, to see beyond limited identities and to associate with the common humanity that we are all part of.


It is time to tear down the walls between cultures and celebrate diversity. It is time to connect at the heart to heart level and let go of the negative emotions. 

This is how we can create a violence-free, stress-free society.

Why there is Suffering when there is God⁉️⁉️😩✨😇🙏

So that you can lift your eyes above this material world. 

Suffering has a purpose, which is to connect you to your self. 

Suffering indicates that you got too involved and carried away by all the relative and transient things around you. 


That is what suffering is all about. Once you understand that it is all transient, your eyes get lifted to something that is eternal. 

That is when real joy dawns in life.
