Melting the greed, jealousy…

Have you ever thought what are the things which are very personal to us in our lives. Your house, fame, power, secrets and attachments. What are the things which are universal in our lives? Guruji, Sun, Air, Earth, Water, and atoms. Which of the things are essential to live? Does the first category give us life or takes away the zeal from life?

What the Art of Living courses have done is made the universal very very personal through Surya Namaskar, Kriya, Bowing down and the hollow-empty meditations. Greed, jealousy, fear and lack of contentment arise when “what is mine” and “what is universal “ are completely opposites. Sharing inculcates an attitude of personal becoming universal.

As once someone had asked Guruji “Do you love everyone equally?” He replied “No, I love everyone uniquely?” Personal love in an universal crowd. And as He said the mind is the wave and the ocean is the consiousness, the ocean can live without the wave but the wave cannot live without the ocean. Become personal with the five elements and the Guru, become open to sharing everything personal. While orchestrating the notes of your life, make the personal universal to find peace, love and compassion.

Homework: – Find out all that is very personal to you, laptop, i-pod, your talents, fame, beauty and power. Share it with some people and let me know what melted.

P.S:- I have been very irregular in posting and i read all your complaints for it. I would request you to tell me what should I write more….recipes, jokes, personal experiences, articles, seva sharings, course sharings etc etc. Your vote will count, so start voting and make it a practice.

  10. Jgd Bhaiya this is a very important article as greed jealousy are always have to be checked. And we would like you to guide, correct, inspire, advise order !!! about the right things……

  11. bhaiya, anything and everything that comes spontaneously to u.. but more n more Guru stories… 🙂

  12. Hi Bhaiyya… Jai Gurudev…!!!

    After doing AOL courses I became aware of what is “need” and what is “greed”… with the help of awareness and consciousness I can check my level of happiness while sharing my knowledge with my friends, with my near and dear ones… attaining knowledge is personal thing and sharing that knowledge with others is Universal but at the same time bhaiyaa as you said this universal thing is becoming very very personal.

    Am i rite..? correct me if i m wrong…

    Looking for your personal experiences and Guruji’s story.

    Jai Gurudev…

  13. Helloooo Bhaiya,

    Nice article after a loooooooong time. I would like to read more of Guru stories and knowledge from you.

    Regarding your this article, I would like to mention here that I have already started sharing my most precious possession already with everybody much before your posting. U should know who are the most precious people for me, i dont think I need to mention that. Currently, I am reading Punarnava, talks by Guruji. A very good book indeed. Everybody should read it. One thing that Guruji says in this book which I am not able to forget, when you dont have control over your body, how at all can you try to have control over anything else in this world. How true!

    Jgd

  14. “Making the personal into the universal”:
    Brilliantly expressed!! I completely agree with you.

    Seva is an extension of that. One becomes conscious that the things one perceived as limited to oneself—problems/ feelings/ situations—are common to all. This is an impetus to reach out and serve.

    I look forward to reading more of your views on the course and the knowledge.

  15. JaiGuruDev !
    Thanks for the Beautiful knowledge !
    Please share more personal experiences……sewa sharing…..!!
    JaiGuruDev !!
