Two sides of the same coin

In this world you can’t eliminate anybody – that’s the rule

If there is a war maker there is a peacemaker.

If there is violence there has to be non-violence.

I want you, as I need you. In addition, I don’t want somebody else, as I don’t need them.

Where there is a snake there is a peacock. Where there is a lion there is a cow. However, all are inside us.

How to balance yourself in spite of bipolarity?

Balance leads to polarity. If there is conflict between two then there is bipolarity.

We don’t want lion, but we become a lion in some place.

When we want to end violence, we wage a war. To kill terrorists, we send an army. We use violence to kill violence.

How it is happening?

How to make sure this doesn’t happen?

We have to accept what we don’t like as one day you may dislike what you like today.

In the same way, what we don’t want  today, may be wanted  tomorrow.

How to fix this behaviour of our mind as it’s easy to talk but difficult to follow?

Whenever I am in state of sadness, when I fear, when we feel helpless…then I am not able to do anything.  This is the time we need to chant the mantra, “HARE RAMA HARE KRISHNA”.

Then we will understand that we need everything in this world and that we need both theists and atheists, and so on.

Nobody is happy at home

My family is really facing issues…

My brother earns quite an amount. However, my parents have to beg for the money. My Bhabhi will unknowingly or knowingly make life difficult for my mother.

My brother has no respect for parents. I don’t know how to make him realise what his parents have sacrificed for him. It’s even difficult to explain it to you.

I am really troubled now. I can’t see my parents especially my mother going through so much. And my brother is an estranged person now. There is no relationship existing. They live their own life inside the same house.

It’s very frustrating to see all this. My parents don’t take my money Even if i insist. I am tired.

Time and again there are fights arising. My parents aren’t happy. Bhabhi is also not happy. I am sure she wants to live separately. She once told my parents to move out of this house.

Why doesn’t my brother understand?

I want to take my parents and move out of this house. But for this there is no resource, parents want security. Brother wants property. So neither of them will budge.

I try to tell my brother what is right.

My mother thinks I am the one responsible for fights because I bring out the issues.

I feel helpless and rotten. I try to see things being ‘unattached’ to the world. But i can’t when it comes to my parents. My blood boils.

Give me some advice. Please.

Also I have been chanting ‘Vallabam Gajaananam Eka Dhantham’ around 50-100 times a day. Someday I feel good. Office life has been sorted out. But family life is still a problem. It has all started after my brother got married. With all due respect to my Bhabhi She comes from a rich family. So she has different values.

On top of this my marriage is still a big question mark.

Your intense desire to change your brother and the events happening will produce opposite results.

Pray and prayer only can help.

Instead of desiring what to happen, you thank your brother for respecting your parents.

Take a list of what you want for your parents. Say i thank the divine for………..

Daily do this.

Mantras and switch words will work when we surrender and accept the divine order only.

You cannot change anything with your will. Your will and divine will should unite. The link is the surrendering attitude. Surrendering is Samarpanam. Samarpanam is keeping all our words, prayers and actions at the feet of Divine with the intention to accept whatever he offers.

Chant NAMASHIVAYAM. This will help you to understand how to detach from the result

Thank you sir…I realised…it’s not others…I am being too adamant and expecting things to follow a rule. Whereas…this universe is infinite…and has its own set of directions… I realise… I have to give in and surrender to somebody up there…

Thank you so much for this precious advice…

You are a great guide to life 🙂
