Evolve and Elevate: Purification of Karmas and
How to be like a River?

Idea of the Week

Nothing destructive destroys you until you allow it.
Thoughts are inevitable, but how you direct them is a choice. They won’t harm you when they knock on your door. You are damaged when you let them in and allow them to stay.

 

 

Lesson of the Week

Bhagwad Gita says:

We as humans are contaminated by the dirt of the physical world which the Supreme Power is not.

Bhagwad Gita (The Hindu Mythological scripture) gives us the knowledge to understand that we are supposed to remove this dirt of Bhautik Jagat (Physical World).

When we remove this dirt, our consciousness becomes pure.

And when you reach a state of pure consciousness, all your desires and wishes are executed as per God’s wishes, and you will be happiest in it.

You do not have to stop working for the material needs but you have to keep purifying your Karmas. This means whatever you do to survive the physical world; it should be done with a pure intention.

And this purification of Karmas is called “Bhakti.”

In Bhakti, the Karmas will not be contaminated.

This means the intention behind your Karma will not have any ulterior motive.

When you deliver such selfless Karmas, God takes a special charge of your life.

 

 

Inspiration: “Be Like a River”

by Paulo Coelho 

“A river never passes the same place twice,” says a philosopher. 

And so does life.

If you deeply observe your life, the little changing moments will help you understand how to navigate life.

A] No tomorrow will be the same as today.

We are always doing things for the first time. While we move between our source (birth) to our destination (death), the landscape will always be new. We should explore this landscape with curiosity, not with fear – because it is useless to fear what cannot be avoided. A river never stops running.

B] In a valley we walk slower. When everything around us becomes easier, the waters grow calm, we become more open, fuller and more generous.

C] Our banks are always fertile. Vegetation only grows where there is water. Whoever comes into contact with us needs to understand that we are there to give the thirsty something to drink.

D] Stones should be avoided. It is obvious that water is stronger than granite, but it takes time for this to happen. It is no good letting yourself be overcome by stronger obstacles, or trying to fight against them – that is a useless waste of energy. It is best to understand where the way out is, and then move forward.

E] Hollows call for patience. All of a sudden the river enters a sort of hole and stops running as joyfully as before. At such moments the only way out is to count on the help of time.

When the right moment comes the hollow fills up and the water can flow ahead. In the place of the ugly, lifeless hole there now stands a lake that others can contemplate with joy.

F] We are one. We were born in a place that was meant for us, which will always keep us supplied with enough water so that when confronted with obstacles or depression we have the necessary patience or strength to move forward. We begin our course in a soft and fragile manner, where even a simple leaf can stop us. Nevertheless, as we respect the mystery of the source that gave us life, and trust in eternal wisdom, little by little we gain all that we need to pursue our path.

G] Although we are one, soon we shall be many. As we travel on, the waters of other springs come closer, because that is the best path to follow. Then we are no longer just one, but many – and there comes a moment when we feel lost. However, “all rivers flow to the sea.” It is impossible to remain in our solitude, no matter how romantic that may seem. When we accept the inevitable encounter with other springs, we eventually understand that this makes us much stronger, we get around obstacles or fill in the hollows in far less time and with greater ease.

H] We are a means of transportation. Of leaves, boats, ideas. May our waters always be generous, may we always be able to carry ahead everything or everyone that needs our help.

I] We are a source of inspiration. And so, let us leave the final words to the Brazilian poet, Manuel Bandeira:

“To be like a river that flows
silent through the night,
not fearing the darkness and
reflecting any stars high in the sky.”
