Jan 2018 -5

SOME TIMES WHEN YOU BANK ON DIPLOMACIES AND NICETIES, YOU MAY NOT ONLY BE HIDING THE TRUTH BUT MAY ALSO BE  RESPONSIBLE FOR EGO ACTUALISATION IN THE OTHER....

SUBTLE EGO?
-----------------
HE IS VERY DISCIPLINED.... HE IS INDIVIDUALISTIC AND IS CAPABLE OF TAKING CARE HIMSELF, THOUGH HE IS QUITE AGED.... HE DOES NOT LIKE ANY ONE ASSISTING HIM....
KINDLY DO GIVE US A CHANCE TO SERVE YOU.... WE WOULD LIKE TO BE OF USE TO YOU, WHEN YOU ARE ALIVE.... OF COURSE WHEN YOU DIE YOU HAVE NO OPTIONS....YOU NEED US TO CARRY YOU TO THE GRAVE....

WHEN SOME ONE IS AGED, ANY SANE NORMAL PERSON LIVING WITH HIM OR HER WOULD LIKE TO BE OF USE AND HELP TO THEM....
SOME AGED PEOPLE, PROJECT SUBTLY THEIR EGO BY DEMONSTRATING THAT THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES WITHOUT THE HELP OF ANY ONE AROUND... WHEN THE YOUNGER ONE SEE THEM STRUGGLING TO HOLD A CUP, OR FIND THEM UNABLE TO WALK, BEND DOWN TO PICK AN ARTICLE, OR BOARD A BUS OR CAR, THEY RUN TO ASSIST THEM.... IT IS PAINFUL TO SEE THE ASSISTANCE BEING REJECTED BY THE AGED ON THE GROUNDS THAT THEY CAN TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES....
EVEN AT THAT AGE, WE SEE A SUBTLE EGO IN SUCH AGED PEOPLE.....
OUR PRAYERS TO LORD TO MAKE SUCH AGED PEOPLE ELDERLY IN THEIR OUTLOOK AND GIVE A CHANCE TO THE YOUNGER ONES TO DO SERVICE TO THEM WHICH GRACEFULLY THEY ACCEPT.....

IN THE YAGNAM, I HAD A CONVERSATION WITH ONE OF MY DISCIPLES....
HE SAID....'GURUJI, I HAD INTRODUCED A SPIRITUAL PERSON TO ONE OF MY CLIENTS.... HE WAS OK WITH MY CLIENT..... RECENTLY MY CLIENT COMPLAINED TO ME THAT THE SPIRITUAL PERSON IS ASKING FOR A HUGE SUM AS 'RETAINER FEES'.... SO I ASKED MY CLIENT TO DISCONTINUE HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT PERSON.. HAVE I COMMITTED ANYTHING WRONG IN OPINING THAT WAY TO MY CLIENT?'....
I IMMEDIATELY SAID.....'YOU DID A GOOD THING.... THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN YOUR HAVING DONE THE ACT'.....
__________________________________________
SOME TIMES  A WORTHY MASTER TESTS HIS DISCIPLES..... SOME TIME TO DROP SOME ONE, HE ASKS A HUGE SUM OR DOES SOMETHING WHICH IS CONSIDERED WRONG IN THE EYES OF THE OTHER, SO THAT THE OTHER QUITS ON HIS OWN.... WHY MASTERS ADOPT SUCH MEASURES IS ONLY KNOWN TO THEM?
__________________________________________
UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, WHY DID I TELL MY DISCIPLE 'YOU DID A GOOD THING.....THERE IS NOTHING WRONG IN YOUR HAVING DONE THE ACT'....
IS IT BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT THE DISCIPLE TO FEEL BAD FOR HIS ACT OR IS THERE ANY OTHER VALID REASON BEHIND MY STATEMENT?
CAN ANY ONE GUESS?

THE WORLD HAS CHANGED....
THOSE DAYS WHEN THERE ARE GROSS DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HUSBAND AND WIFE, ELDERS USED TO INTERFERE, SORT OUT THE MATTERS.... ANY NUMBER OF TIMES, THE ISSUE COMES UP, THE ELDERS USE TO EMPLOY METHODS OF COERCION, EMOTIONAL TALK ETC TO KEEP THE COUPLE UNIFIED.... THE COUPLE TOO WILL SWALLOW THE DIFFERENCES, STILL KEEP FIGHTING  BUT CONTINUE THE RELATIONSHIP....
THESE DAYS ARE MORE COMPLEX THAN THOSE DAYS.... TODAY THE EMOTIONAL TURMOIL AND CHURNING BETWEEN ESTRANGED COUPLES IS VERY HIGH... TODAY I FEEL THE ELDERS SHOULD NOT INTERFERE AND SHOULD ALLOW THE YOUNGER ONES TO DECIDE WHETHER TO CARRY ON OR MOVE OUT.... I FEEL THE YOUNGER GENERATIONS SHOULD TAKE A HONEST DECISION AND IF NEED BE QUIT WITH DIGNITY.....

IT IS A SORROWFUL STATE OF AFFAIRS THAT IN RELIGION TODAY , THERE ARE MANY SCIENTISTS, MATHEMATICIANS AND LOGICIANS, WHO ANALYSE, INTERPRET ON SCIENTIFIC LINES, MANIPULATE AND DAMAGE THE ORIGINAL ESSENCE OF RELIGIOUSNESS WHICH IS BASED ON UNQUESTIONABLE FAITH....

HE IS A GOOD MAN WITH A SERVICE ORIENTED HEART.... HE BUILT A NICE OLD AGED HOME WHICH ANNEXES A BEAUTIFUL TEMPLE..... HE PROMISED GOOD SERVICES TO THE ELDERLY AND NEEDY.... HE ALSO PROMISED THE INMATES 'GOPURA DARSHANAM' FROM THE OLD AGE HOME.... THERE WAS NO RESPONSE.... HE WAS FEELING A BIT TENSED, SINCE NO ONE WAS COMING FORWARD....
I TOLD HIM, THESE DAYS ELDER GENERATIONS TOO ARE MORE INTERESTED IN SWIMMING POOLS AND CLUBS INSTEAD OF 'GOPURA DARSHANAM'.... VERY SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS.... MANY ELDERLY ARE JUST AGED OR OLD AND LACK ANY MATURITY OR UNDERSTANDING...
LET US PRAY TO LORD FOR THIS GENTLEMAN WHO HAS BUILT AN OLD AGE HOME TO BE FILLED WITH MATURED ELDERS WHO ARE MORE INTERESTED IN 'GOPURA DARSHANAM' AND MERGER WITH LORD INSTEAD OF SWIMMING POOLS AND CLUBS....
