Evolve and Elevate: Why Humanity suffers? The only way to be happy, and Top 3 priorities in my life right now.
Idea of the Week
Lesson of the Week
Bhagavad Gita says:
If we dig deeper into the theory of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, we will find that one Jeev (creature) is in continuous service of another Jeev (creature).
One Jeev serves another Jeev in many ways.
And this is the only way of living life.
Like a servant serves his owner, in the same way every Jeev (creature) is in some or the other service.
This is what we see everywhere:
- One friend serving another friend.
- Mother serving her children.
- Wife serving her husband.
- Husband serving his wife.
If we explore this process of Sewa (service), we will find that there is no exception in this Bhautik Jagat (material world) where one Jeev (creature) is not serving another.
From this, we conclude that Sewa (Service) is Jeev’s (creature’s) Chir Sehchar (old friend who stays forever).
And this Chir Sehchar of being in some form of service is every Jeev’s Shashvat Dharam (Eternal duty of every creature).
However, in this Manushya Kal (Human era), under a specific situation, one specific type of faith is believed, accepted and followed. And in this way each person claims himself or herself to belong to Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Bodh or any other community.
But all these designations of belief are not Sanatan Dharam (Eternal Righteousness).
One Hindu by changing his or her belief can become Muslim, or one Muslim can become Hindu, or some Christian can change his/her belief system etc.
But in all these situations, the change in religious faith does not change the Shashvat Dharma (eternal duty) of serving others.
All the religions in every circumstance are involved in one or the other Sewa (service)
Therefore, we all have the same Sanatan Dharam which is Sewa (duty to serve).
Infact our relationship with God is also about serving Him.
Parmeshwar (God) is Param Bhakta (supreme receiver) and all the Jeevs (creatures) are his Sewak (servants).
We all have been created to serve Him and if we participate in this Nitya Bhog (Daily holy serving) with God, then we are guaranteed to become Sukhi (happy).
There is no other way to be happy than to serve God.
Just like every part of the body cannot function without serving the stomach which is the real Bhokta (receiver) of the body, similarly without serving God, we cannot be Happy.
Inspiration of the Week:
Top three priorities in my life right now
For the longest time, I kept running after things I desperately wished for.
Chasing them full throttle, I assumed I’d get hold of each of them, but sadly I puffed out soon.
I did not realise…
We cannot have things by chasing them.
We cannot get things by anxiously waiting for them.
We cannot see our wishes come true by running after them.
When I found myself exhausted, I decided to take a different lane.
When I took the first step, I realized, I kept taking steps towards the wrong Destination.
And the more I walked, the farther I went from the right Destination.
And now I am reversing back from the wrong side.
Because when your wishes are not coming true, you need to reflect on your priorities.
And I started my inward journey.
After taking many wrong turns, I figured out which is the right lane.
And now I know my priorities more than my wishes.
I want to serve my purpose.
We all are born with a seed but not all of us identify the seed and from the handful ones who identify it, only a bunch of them grow it into a Tree.
I want to be a part of that bunch, growing my seed into a Tree.
The tree will spread shade, support, love, warmth, and healing.
I want to water my seed each single day because I know, my seed isn’t visible to all but the day it turns into a Tree, it is going to stop every person and choose to sit under it.
I want to Marry.
I no longer need a life partner; I want a partner for life instead. I am not looking for someone whom I can demand on happiness for or love but someone willing to share his love, warmth and togetherness with me.
I don’t want to chase someone I find best, I want to focus on becoming a version who can deserve someone who is best.
I want to evolve
I’m not the best version yet and I’m not going to be ever. I’m just going to be better than my previous self.
I want to learn, have experiences, and allow life in its entirety so that I don’t miss the gold nuggets of life because I’ve found that we don’t evolve in familiar and comfortable spaces.
When we step out of the familiarity and become comfortable with the unfamiliar, that’s when we evolve.
