A forum for Healers and Seekers
It is said that there is always a reason for everything that happens in our lives. It is the deeds that we do in our current and past lives. There have been many seekers and many gurus who have explained the truth of existence and the cause and effect of things that happen. Most commonly the purpose of existence is to eradicate pain and suffering from this world from the lives of one and many. It is also said that we have answers to everything within us, and also the cure to the pain and suffering also lies within us.
So then life should be simple. But is it?
Are there any past lives in reality or just a facet of our imagination.
Are there different purposes for different people. where do they come from
why is it that every thing is so complicated or it is we who make it complicated.
are the evils there just to balance the good forces
Here is what I understand...
Let me start with an example:
Music / songs are the result of sound waves (energy) falling upon air (energy) to restructure the form of air energy. The quality of sound, the sweetness etc. etc. depends on the quality of sound waves.
In the same way, we are all energy beings and our life (music / song) is formed as a result of our thoughts > word > deeds; all are energy (sound waves) vibrating at different frequency. The quality of our music of life will depend on the quality of sound waves.
Now just the way when you play soothing music, not just you, but also the people around who hear the music feel good and vice-versa with loud, hard music, it may not work that well with all. However, people who like hard music would enjoy the same.
Similarly, every being plays their own music of life and the result also impacts others around.
Similarly, when this sound energy is superimposed upon a magnetic medium / optical medium (again an energy form), the structure of the magnetic medium changes to be able to play back the sound energy.
So in life, the music we create also embeds itself upon our energy form to be played back when required
Life, really is our journey till we merger with the Source / Creator / Supreme Light / God (whatever you choose to call IT). Death is about changing clothes
Take the example of a gramophone record - there is a pause between each track (death if we want to do an analogy with life), till the pin (a soul) reaches the centre (unites with the ONE)
- This hopefully gives you a pointer towards your question on past life - and it is these recorded bits of information that also trigger up / make us react / respond in ways we do in our current life.
Is life simple or is it complicated?
It really depends on how you choose to look at it. As we have learnt even in ST, accepting what is, understanding why and moving on makes life simple.
If we can be willing to recognise that everything we are experiencing, presumed good or the presumed bad, is what we have called upon, we can then be more at peace with the situation / events. This makes the situation / event more easier to handle and we are at peace - that state of beingness also make life seem far less complicated.
Our inherent nature of wanting to do things our way, allowing the play of EGO / MAYA, results in our vision being blurred and when the vision is blurred, as you would also agree, you really cannot see well and would end up knocking around on the path you walk, fall and get bruised or maybe even loose the path - But the fault is not in the path, it is our choice of not wanting to clear the vision.
Are there different purpose for different people?
As has been mentioned through the ages by the sages, all of creation, irrespective of where they are on the plane of evolution, have one goal - to re-unite with the ONE, the Supreme Light. However, the path to getting there will be different.
So to give an example, many people want to visit the kumbh mela, the location of the kumbh mela is fixed, but people from around the globe travel using different means, best suited to them to reach the destination and so it is in our quest to reach the ONE.
Is evil there just to balance out the good forces?
So you would have heard, the absence of light is darkness, does that really make darkness evil? Here again, it is an individual's view - for the person who steals to feed his family, may see it as an act, not necessarily wrong - but for the person who lost something to the thief, feels it is wrong / evil act - so would all of us in the society that we are in - consider the act as wrong.
The absence of the ability to provide for the family using alternate, right means, make the thief who he is. But deep within, the person is not evil.
We also hear people taking of evil forces, evil spirits etc. etc. These to my understanding are souls still caught up in the EGO / MAYA mania and are unable to let go - being thus stuck, they try to achieve their material goals through energy beings that are present in the physical form. But again, these souls are not really evil, its just that they need help to move to the source of light - ofcourse to use the help available is purely on the individual soul.
A child may misbehave because he / she did not get the right guidance for whatever reason, but when given, it is the child's choice to correct the behaviour.
What we also see as evil very often is our own creation - today we are faced with an almost drought situation - who has caused it and why? Are we not experiencing the fruits of our play with Mr. EGO and Ms. MAYA?
I my opinion, what we perceive as evil, is only a soul with blinds on - Yes, prayers, meditation can help these souls move closer to the Light.
As Sri Paramhansa Yogananda has said, "a saint is a sinner who never gave up"
Dear Giriraj ji,
I am here just to share you one testimonials to you.There are many questions and answers about life by different Gurus and spiritual teachers and healers,if we follow all of them then we don't have the time to rediscover our self by wasting our time in others questions.
Life is simple and each one of us is unique in this world,so live a life fully don't get confused with others problems and unwanted questions,which is not useful for ones life.
If required take the help of SOULs TEMPLE.
There are many things in this world, which you will not get any answers and of course there are many things which you have to experiment self rather than searching answers.
For example: God is there but nobody can show you where he is. For that you have to experience by yourself, same as air,soul,and everything.
If you are curious please experience yourself, that is the best answer which satisfied your questions.
