Relax from the struggle between spritiual life and material life

Do you struggle between living a spiritual life and a material life?

Before meeting my Guru, a living avatar – Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji), I was living a material life enjoying the sense pleasures but suffering from a complete emptiness in spiritual life. Naturally my life was hell because my body was aching so much and my inner space was shrinking into restlessness and constant irritation. It was only after I started seeking the higher purpose in life that I was able to heal my body-mind and drop all the wrong cognitions which I was carrying about life which were inserted into my consciousness by the unconscious society.

I was reminded of a perfect analogy given by Swamiji which shifted my cognition completely and I never have to struggle anymore!

Shiva means Eternal Auspiciousness

Today, I am the mood of sharing my favorite Being, Lord Shiva in Vedic puranas (histories) as told by my Guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) in March 2010 on the auspicious day of Shivaratri.

Shiva, the very word means eternal auspiciousness, auspiciousness without reason or cause. When something exists without cause or reason, it’s eternal. Even if you look at the extraordinary qualities of Mahadeva, when he sits in silence as Dakshinmurthy, he puts people into enlightenment, under the banyan tree. When he dances, he puts people into bliss as Nataraja – the Cosmic Dancer! When he destroys, he destroys all negativity as Kalabhairava. When he decides to show compassion, he can take any poison and swallow it with no limit. When he decides to destroy, he will destroy even death, Yama. When he decides to save, he will go to any extent to save others, how he swallowed the poison to save the world, risking even his own body.

The grandeur with which he expresses the experience, he showers on people who even remember him, Sadashiva, the ultimate Guru, ultimate Yogi, ultimate King, Ishwara, ultimate Leader, ultimate Bliss, ultimate compassion, ultimate life. With all these qualities, he is not too far away, very easy to approach, easily pleased. Nothing much is required to please him. That is why he’s called Bole Baba (easily pleased).

Shivaratri is the celebration of Lord Shiva appearing as an eternal light shaft as Arunachala, to give the opportunity to Brahma (Lord of creation) and Vishnu (Lord of Maintenance), to find the head and feet of Mahadeva. Shivaratri is the day when intense cosmic energy radiates.

Aloneness is our nature

Last week, during one private session with a client, I was working with her to uncover the underlying fear patterns or her blind spots she has been carrying. She shared that she has a deep fear of being lonely in her life and old age after a recent failed marriage. She aspires to have a family life with children but she was not sure if she would be able to attract the right guy in her life.

I told her aloneness is not loneliness. Aloneness is all in oneness, aloneness is our inborn nature. I shared with her the timeless truth which I learned from my Guru, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (lovely known as Swamiji) which fundamentally made a cognitive shift in me.  Now I am very comfortable with my aloneness, I enjoy being with myself, sitting with myself for hours sometimes.
