” Do not blindly believe everything that your eyes see, and, all that your ears hear …Aankhon dekhi , kanno suni har baat par, bina parkhey , bina jaane vishwas nahi karna chahiye…”

Swamiji says …

“Your eyes and ears open the doors and windows of your vision and mind, and introduce you to the sights and sounds of the world in which you are born. Your eyes see your loving parents who have given birth to you and all the other people who love you and take care of you. They see the beauty of all that bounteous nature has to offer you and see everything else that makes life so wonderful. Your ears were acquainted to what is sound, when they had heard your mother’s voice cooing endearing words into your ears. The same ears had also listened to the sounds of nature – a gushing stream – the chirping of the birds and the sound of tinkling, gurgling laughter of people around you, and life is beautiful when we use two of our main sense organs for such a delightful purpose.”

” Now, these very sense organs can behave in a very unreliable, slippery manner, play tricks on us and at times create havoc in our lives by enacting the role of the devil by willing themselves to believe that ‘something’ was most certainly wrong in that, what had either been seen, or heard by them. They are so taken in by all that has been captured by the camera of their eye-lens that they refuse to erase that picture from their mind, irrespective of the mental agony that it could cost them – even to the extent of becoming suspicious and doubtful of people very close to them. Unwanted suspicion can make you miserable and suffer unnecessarily, but you are so besotted with the images of what had been seen by you, that they corrupt your mind totally, and you are willing to misconstrue and misread a situation witnessed by you. ‘Pavitra’ – pure relationships that had blossomed after years of understanding and care are destroyed overnight, within a fraction of seconds. Families are broken within no time at all. Rather than being judgmental, be sensible and rational. Revisit mentally, and replay the incident that had been seen by you. Try getting down to the root cause of the problem that is troubling you. Are you reading too much into what was seen by you? Are the persons truly guilty or is there a possibility of their being innocent? Was it the truth or something that you willed to see and believe? Speak to the people concerned – be it your spouse, sibling, or child; before you make them guilty, controversial victims in the eyes of other people. Don’t trust your eyes blindly, as doubt and suspicion could blur your vision…’aur tumhara, aur doosron ka sukh chain cheen le’. Your eyes will always believe what they see. After all seeing is believing and it is here that you have to be very clear about what you want to draw out from what you see. Train your eyes to see good in others. “

“Similar is the case with your ears! They enjoy hearing and listening to the sounds of the hustle and bustle of life; but, they also derive great pleasure in listening to ‘gossip’ and happily listen to people talking about one another behind their back. Ears are very easy to win over with words – good or bad; meaningful or meaningless, and the minute a smart Alec realizes that you are easy on your ears, he will fill them with garbage. What the other person thinks of you and what he says about you. He will feed your ears with vitriolic words that he claims were said by someone, known or unknown to you. These words poison your mind against the person who has said those words …and from that very moment you start bearing a grudge against that person. It appears that the anger that rages within you on hearing such words, engulfs you to such an extent, that you promise yourself that you will never see his face, never talk to him, and will have nothing to do with him ever again. You even decide that if need be, you’ll destroy him, even if he is a loved one – a family member or a dear friend. You are willing to burn the very fabric on which the threads of your relationship were woven. When the seeds of mistrust are watered regularly with hatred, they can easily gnaw and break the foundation of your home. Happiness, joy and laughter of hundreds of thriving families is transformed into unhappiness, tears and screams simply because of the insane, diabolical behavior of a few crazy people. How can you be so naive and weak to believe this person without giving the other person a fair chance to say something in his defense. Don’t you think that the person supposedly vilifying your name needs to be given a fair trial?The possibility of this person trying to completely ruin the other person cannot be ruled out! Have you lost your sense of reasoning?”

“Did the sacred words said to you by your Guru or your ‘guru mantra’ have an effect as potent on you as the words whispered in your ear by this scheming person? You were taught to remain calm, composed and to rise above your ego, but you forgot all those teachings and rather allowed suspicion, doubt, blind faith and belief in a loose talker’s words to gain complete control over your mind. Will you be able to walk the spiritual path with a mindset and attitude as negative and useless as this? It is ‘gyaan’ … true knowledge and pure thoughts alone that can save you from falling into a trap as nefarious as this. You will only vitiate the environment around you with such impure and wasteful thoughts otherwise.”

  4. “Don’t believe in everything you hear or you see, there are always three sides to every story. Your’s,their’s and the truth”….how true it is!
    One should not trust everything that they see. Even salt looks like sugar. Don’t believe those who tell you they love you, believe those who show you they do.
    Only Guru can shower unconditional love towards his devotees. Our Guru gives us the love of “seven mothers “.
    ‘श्री गुरु चरण ‘ नाम का नाव पकड़ के भव सागर को पार करना ही उत्तम है । बाकी,दूसरें क्या बोल रहे हैं,या हम क्या देख रहें हैं,ये सब समय को बर्बाद करने वाले व्यर्थ चीजें हैं । जैसे हमारे स्वामीजी कहते हैं, आत्मा को परमात्मा में लगाना ही परम धर्म है ।🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

  5. Our bonding with each other is only on the spiritual plane. It means that all of us are part of same spark , same conscienceness. When we deal with each other keeping this in mind , then we will not go astray.
