Is it ok if I choose to chant TOGETHER DIVINE or other switch words or mantra, or is it required I chant any word that crosses my path thrown at me.
Chant any word that crosses my path and thrown at me.
I have been doing this on 2/3 words last week and finding a lot of clarity emerging!! It is amazing!!
And more funnily it reminded me of something similar I used to do when I was a student/teen that I had completely forgotten. I wondered when and why I stopped it and am now thinking about how to revive it.
Thank you for your guidance and wisdom.
Let me tell you a story about Swami Ram Das.
As a person who has given up worldly life, he is supposed to beg for food.
One day, while he was standing in front of a door waiting for somebody to give food, an angry lady threw a dirty cloth at him.
He accepted it gracefully, went home and washed it clean.
Then he tore the clothes and made them as threads to burn a lamp.
Keeping the lady in mind, he then prayed, “Oh Lord, I saw the unhappiness in lady’s angry face. I saw her poverty as she could give me only a dirty cloth. Please alleviate her unhappiness and poverty and make her prosperous”.
What a positive frame of mind the Sage Ram Das had!!!
Like him, whatever is thrown at us, should be used to convert the darkness in our heart with light and love.
