Own Your Time

What do you understand about time?
Are you the owner of your time?

Having time means the time is your own. You should be the owner of your time, otherwise your thoughts, something else or someone else will own your time. Here is the secret: if you know how to own your own time, you will not be trying to own others’ time. You will not be bullying around or bossing around people. The whole world is nothing but a huge fight to own more and more people’s time. Whether it is the field of politics, art, science, or even the field of religion, it is nothing but owning people’s time. In any other field, the more you own people’s time, you are considered a big guy. According to Paramahamsa Nithyananda, a living incarnation (fondly known as Swamiji), he once said that the desire to own more time is the subtle reason even for giving birth to kids, bringing them up as they want, and fulfilling in their life whatever they want to have in their life.

Life is a Guru

How do you respond to life whenever something traumatic happens to you?
Do you ask WHY?
Do you fall into guilt or depression?

In the first 5 months after my return from India, I have been undergoing major changes in my life which shook the very core of my being – everything which once gave me the false security were removed from my life. I plunged into a state of utter insecurity, but it only took me a few days to crawl out of this black hole of Maya (illusion).

I remembered one lesson I learned from my Guru, His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda, a living incarnation (fondly known as Swamiji) when he had a compound fracture in his right hand after a horse-riding accident in 2011. He didn’t experience any pain because he never look back. He explained that whatever happened is a time shaft. Time shaft should not be looked back, no post-mortem. Either look at the time with complete acceptance or gratitude. He looked at Kalabhairava (Lord of Time) only with gratitude.

He said “Kalabhairava is Guru (dispeller of darkness). Life is a Guru. Don’t look at life with a ‘WHY’. A ‘WHY’ towards life always brings suffering. ‘WHY’ does not give answers. It gives only more and more suffering. So, look at life with either complete acceptance or gratitude.
