Here are some life changing messages from the holy discourse of Satguru Mata Sudiksha Ji Maharaj, as delivered on Sunday, 25th July, 2021 during the virtual Samagam.
1. Every moment spent in mindful remembrance of this formless Nirankar is blissful. We regularly say ‘Tera roop hai ye sansar’ (This world is your manifestation), which means that everything that we see or feel, has originated from Nirankar. When we remove this Maya, we are left with only Nirankar. As an example, all milk products have milk as their base and all forms of water; whether it is ice or steam, have the same chemical composition of H2O. We have to connect with the source.
2. Some people think that if they are leading their life, with complete fulfillment of their worldly duties with sincerity; they don’t need to remember God or attend Satsang. But, the fact remains that anything done without remembrance of Nirankar, is nothing but, Maya (Illusion); as without God, every act gives attachment or ego. Only Nirankar is eternal, rest everything is ephemeral.
3. When we get emotionally connected to someone, we feel sad to see them depart from our lives. But, we should move on with fond memories and lessons from their lives, instead of being sad for the loss.
4. It is natural to have affection in worldly relations but, our attachment should not be so overwhelming, that it starts to give us pain. This is all a mind game. Thus, we should connect our mind with the eternal God and remain stable.
5. The aim of human birth is attainment of God Knowledge. After knowing this truth, every moment becomes blissful with acceptance and realisation. A life of one day or one hundred years, whatever we are blessed with after Brahmgyan, is truly joyous.
6. For a little child, whatever is in front of him; is the truth for him. His attention gets shifted to another thing the moment first one is removed. We also practice the same. Even when we know what has to be given priority in our life, we start paying attention to other unimportant things.
7. In many combat sports like boxing, the players are trained to tolerate the pain from the punches. After a while, the player is conditioned not to feel the pain. In life too, it is our choice whether we want to complain about the pain or handle and tolerate the same with our wisdom.
8. Sometimes, tolerance is wise but, to be tolerant with unreasonable behaviour is also not appropriate. For example, in cases of domestic violence, we should try to talk, explain and find the root cause of anger and violence. We can even go to the extent of finding solutions through psychological counseling. But, if even after all these efforts, things do not change, it is not wise to stay in such circumstances.
9. Our body, mind and possessions are a gift of God to us. We should be tolerant, no doubt but, if someone or something is harming us beyond the limits of reason, we should make sure that we are not letting them harm our body or mind, which belong to God.
10. May Nirankar bless everyone with calmness and stability, along with the wisdom of what to tolerate and what not to.
