Are you Killing your own Happiness?

Are you Killing your own Happiness?

Are you Killing your own Happiness?

God says that Happiness and joy are the inherent nature of the soul.  That means that even if we do nothing, we should be in a state of happiness. Yet the reality is very different.  We find ourselves surrounded by worries and sorrows. Life is difficult and a daily struggle and we don’t know how to be happy. The question is that if Happiness is a natural state then why are most of us unhappy? 

If we examine this question closely, an interesting thought comes. Could it be that it is us and not circumstances who are responsible for our unhappiness? Is it possible that we ourselves are killing our own happiness?
Let us examine what happiness is. It is basically a state of mind and heart where we feel that the world is a good place and that we are empowered to do what we want to do. Empowerment is the key to feeling happy. Even if our life is not good, if we feel that we can change our situation, then we will not be unhappy. Instead we would feel motivated and charged up to change our life inspite of the difficulties. Unhappiness starts to seep in to our life when we feel helpless. Unhappiness comes when we feel stuck in life.
Thus the state of happiness is related to a state of empowerment and not our actual circumstances.
Examine your thoughts from this perspective. Examine your life for those activities that make your feel disempowerment.  Is most of your time spent in doing those activities that you don’t like?  Do you feel that you have no options but to do things you don’t like because you have to earn your living and look after your family? Do you feel trapped by the work you do? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you have the answer to why you are unhappy. The fact is that if you spend your life immersed in those activities that you don’t like, you will be disempowered and unhappy. Working harder at those activities would not be the answer.
Instead you must ask yourself. Why have you allowed yourself to be dictated to by circumstances? You may find-as most will-is that the answer is fear. The fact is that most of you feel alone and helpless. You feel that there is no-one there for you if you fail. This is the basic reason why people take disempowering but safe decisions and waste their entire life doing things they hate.
But what if you are not alone? What if you have a loyal supporter who will be at your back to help you whatever may happen?  Would you feel unhappy?  The answer would be a resounding No!
Friends, I have some good news. All of us have that ultimate protector at our back! Who is He?  He is none other than God Himself.
You may well ask. If I have God as my protector then why is my life so difficult? The answer is that we don’t let God work his best solutions for us in our life. Instead we let negative and fearful thoughts blossom inside and we stop listening to that part of our brain that has a direct connection with God. Many of us even kill that part of our brain that is called consciousness.  The fact is that it is our negative, fearful and egoistical thoughts that are the problem.
Every Thought is like a seed that has the potential to become a fruit giving tree.  Your life can change with just one right thought.  The life of most people is not good only because they spend most of their time in negative corrosive emotions and in doing those activities that they don’t like. They live in negative barren thoughts. Your mind and heart are not in the work you do.  The result is mediocrity and failure and you lose confidence in your abilities.  You somehow carry on in order to survive.  Your life becomes a burden to you.
How to change this negative self harming behavior? How Shabd-Surat yoga is a solution that can help you. Surat-Shabd yoga will start bringing about a change that will appear miraculous to your defeated mentality.  Surat-Shabd yoga rebuilds you connection with God. When that happens, you will see miracles happening in your life and you will start believing that you are worthy of God’s love. This will once again give you confidence that you had once had but you subsequently lost. This feeling of support from God creates space for you to start believing in yourself.  Use that space to start doing what you like to do. Start listening to your heart. Start doing those things that you are good at and that you enjoy.  Stop those activities that you don’t like but the world wants you to do. Rest assured you will have a much better life. 

How to get God to listen to your prayers

How to get God to listen to your prayers

How to get God to listen to your prayers – 

We pray to God often but we are not sure if He listens to our prayers. The question is that are we praying in the right manner and is there something wrong that we are doing that prevents our prayers from being heard?

The answer is that it is very important that we know how to offer our prayers correctly to the Lord since only then we will get an answer to our prayers.

Praying is a good and effective thing to do and the Lord himself encourages prayer. The Lord says to us “Don’t worry about anything. Instead say what you want to the Lord with request, prayer and thanks. It is only then that the peace that is the Lord (and that is difficult for us to understand), will be preserved in the bosom of the Lord.”

The One who is the master of all the worlds has made a loving arrangement for us. We should be grateful for this helpful arrangement and we should not be casual with our prayers. Another reason for praying to the Lord daily and constantly is that this is the way to strengthen the bond that exists between us. True friends talk to each other even when there is no work between them. Instead in true relationships, friends talk to each other for hours. They share their feelings and concerns. They openly talk about those things that are important to them. They care about each other. This is how a healthy relationship is maintained. Our relationship with the Lord needs to be like this.

The Lord is not just a powerful entity that can do things for you but He is actually your father mother, friend, guide etc. Therefore you should share your feelings and problems openly and completely and not keep an emotional divide with the Lord. This way your concerns and prayers will be heard and answered.

five signs that indicate the coming of destruction

 

 5 signs that indicate the coming of destruction  – 

Lord Kalki is 24th incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He has arrived on 2nd May 1985 on the Indian Soil. He had to come down on Indian soil with the name of Kalki, in village Shambhal Gram.
Meaning of word ‘Shambhal Gram’ :-
शम्भु Shambhu – Brahm (those who knows Brahm / Brahm knowing people) is called Brahman + ल or ले (of) + ग्राम Grama (Community/Village/Group of people living at a certain Place) = शम्भल ग्राम Shambhal Grama (Village / Place / City of Brahman / Group of Brahman ब्रह्मणों का समूह ) A place where group of Brahman is living / जहाँ ब्राह्मणों का समूह निवास करता है, उसे शम्भल ग्राम कहते हैं .
People will call Him with many different 1000 community names. Lord Kalki is silent Avatar like Krishna and Lord Buddha and He will destroy the Adharma people, Evil minded people and Malechchha people by hiding Himself on this earth and lastly He will re-establish Dharma at His appointed time.
Since He is King of Kings, God of gods and Universal thus He cannot be for one particular religion. He is for Hindu, He is for Islamic people, He is for Christian and at the same time He is for Shikh also. There is no God except Him. One is He, no partner hath He. Exalted is He alone, and praise be to Lord Kalki only, and there is no deity except Lord Kalki, and Lord Kalki is the Greatest. And there is no might nor power except in Lord Kalki, the Most High, the Most Great. He gives life and causes death, and He is Living, who will not die, never. He of Majesty and Munificence. Within His Hand is (all) good. And He is, upon everything, Able (to exert His Will).

Lord Kalki will destroy the the evil people in is ow appointed time that indicate five signs, mentioned in the Holy Scriptures . These are as below:

1. Most people in society will start to consume non vegetarian food, Women will speak in sharp, hurtful tones, refuse to honour their husband’s feelings and improper sexual conducts will increase in society. It will be observed that the sun is eclipsed even when there is no moonless night.

2. The average life span of people will drastically reduce and girls will reach child-bearing capacities at very young ages. Husbands and wives will be dissatisfied with each other. People will not keep faith in places of worship. The stars will shine less bright and the earth will get increasingly hot.

3. When there are such times, at an appropriate time, in village Sambhal on the Mathura-Vrindavan border, Lord Kalki will take Avatar. He will travel the earth destroying evil and evil minded people. This is when Satyuga will be said to have begun.

4. Lord Kalki will be the fourth son of his parents whose names are Vishnuyasha and Sumati.

5. Lord Kalki will appear soft natured and divine in appearance and demeanour. He will be the master of the eight siddhis. He will travel on a white horse. He will possess immense anger inside him for he will observe the evil and sinful behaviour of society and therefore he will be dark skinned. He would like to wear the colour red and he will fight with a sword.

 

11 Things You Should Know About Lord Kalki

11 Things You Should Know About Lord Kalki

(Ishwar Putra Arun)

11 Things You Should Know About Lord Kalki

11 Things You Should Know About Lord Kalki

(1) Lord Kalki is the 24th Avatar of Lord Vishnu, arrived on Indian Soil on 2nd May 1985. Accoding to the Book “Kalki Comes n 1985” chapter 3 – it is said – “Kalki will be born in a Brahmin family in Mathura City in Utter Pradesh of North India in the first half of 1985, i.e. on Baishakh Shukla Dwadashi Tithi.” Kalki Puran 1;2;15 prophesied – “Lord Kalki will born in Baishakh Month Sukla Paksha Dwadashi tithi.”
(2) Shambhal Garm in many states like – Muradabad of Uttar Pradesh, Orissa, China, South India, Mathura Vrindavan border of Uttar Pradesh etc. But Lord Kalki arrived at Shambhal Gram of Mathura Vrindavan border of Uttar Pradesh. Bhavishya Puran,Pratisarg Parv, Part 4th , Chapter – 5, Page No – 331 has prophesied that “Lord will take Avatar with the name of Lord Kalki in Divya Vrindavan (in the secret Rasmandal place i.e. in the border of Mathura – Vrindavan location) for the welfare of Devas and to destroy the evil-doers. In the end of Kaliyuga Lord will appear in the form of Kalki Avatar at the request of Radha ji.”
Meaning of word ‘Shambhal Gram’ :-
शम्भु Shambhu – Brahm (those who knows Brahm / Brahm knowing people) is called Brahman + ल or ले (of) + ग्राम Grama (Community/Village/Group of people living at a certain Place) = शम्भल ग्राम Shambhal Grama (Village / Place / City of Brahman / Group of Brahman ब्रह्मणों का समूह ) A place where group of Brahman is living / जहाँ ब्राह्मणों का समूह निवास करता है, उसे शम्भल ग्राम कहते हैं .
Muradabad Shambhal is not possible place of incarnation of Lord Kalki because 98% population of that village are Muslimand 2% people are of another caste. Brahaman population is negligible. Seeing the prophesy of Bhavishya Puran and Kalki Comes in 1985, real Shambhal is a place of Mathura – Vrindavan (Uttar Pradesh) location of the Avtara place of Lord Kalki.

(3) His mother’s name is Sumati and father’s name is Vishnu Yasha. (Kalki Puran 1;2:4)
(4) Kalki Puran 1;2:6 has prophesied – Lord Kalki will marry with Padma. Padma will be the incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi and she will be born from the womb of Koumudi, the wife of king Brihadratha, in Sinhala Desh (Sri Lanka).
People are clever and they will try to confuse the people with their cleverly – God knew the people’s attitude. Thus He cleared in Kalki Puran 1;2:6 so that false people might be caught. Truth is – The mother’s name of Padma will be Koumudi and her father’s name will be Brihadratha, and all of three will be born in Sinhala Desh (Sri Lanka) and at the same time all of three will live in Sinhala Desh (Sri Lanka).
(5) The prediction that Lord Kalki will be born in the town of Shambala near the end of Kali-yuga from a brahmana who is actually an incarnation of Svayambhuva Manu. It is described that Svayambhuva Manu performed austerities at Naimisaranya on the bank of the Gomati River for acquiring the privilege of having Lord Vishnu as his son in three lifetimes. Lord Vishnu, being pleased with Svayambhuva Manu , granted the blessing that He would appear as Svayambhuva Manu ‘s son as Lord Rama, Krishna, and Kalki. Thus, Svayambhuva Manu would appear as Dasaratha, Vasudeva, and then Vishnuyasha. Padma Purana 1;40:46 also prophesied – Lord Vishnu admits that He will be born in Kali-yuga. (Sankshipta Padmapuran, Chapter – Utterkhand, Title – “Ramavatar Katha Description of Birth ” Page No 949)
(6) Lord Kalki has nine guru. Their name is as below:
(i) Parshuram (ii) Kripacharya (iii) Vashistha (iv) Vyasa (v) Dhoumya (vi) Akritavarana (vii) Ashvathama (viii) Madhucchanda and (ix) Mandapala.
(7) He is a silent Avatar like Lord Krishna and Lord Buddha. This is the reason people did not get any information about the arrival of Lord Kalki.
(8) He has come down at Shambhal Gram silently and destroying the evil people by hiding Himself. Marharshi Vedvyasa has foretold in Shrimadbhagawatm Maha Puran – Lord kalki will remain hidden in kaliyuga.
(9) At the time of battle He will be riding on white horse named Devdatta having Ratnasaru Sword.
(10) First battkle of Lord kalki is Kikat Pur. Although Kikatpur is undentified but people of Kikatpur will not worship God will not believe in after – life (rebirth), will not believe in Vedas, soul, race etc. He will fight with Barbarians, Mlechchhas, Sakas, Kambojas, Yavanas, Kiratas and Pulindas etc. In the last He will fight with the King Shashidhwaj of Vallat Nagar.
(11) Lord Kalki will marry with the daughter of Shashidhwaj of Vallat Nagar named Rama. Lord Kalki by His wife Padma, begot two sons – named Jaya and Vijaya and by His second wife Rama begot two sons, named – Meghamala and Balahaka (Kalki Puran2;6:36 and 3;17:44)

Seek your God every day

Seek your God every day

AADISHRI ARUN

 

Seek your God every day
Seek your God every day – God is looking towards your face that you will speak to Him because He is your father. Holi Scriptures prophesied – His eyes are wide open and His ears attentive to the prayers we offer to Him (Bible, 2 Chronicles 6:40; 7:15). This is the reason it is important that every day you seek Him for your needs and thank Him for all the good things / deeds He has done in your lives. Seeing the gratitude of your hearts, God will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go and will counsel you with His loving eye on you (Bible, Psalm 32:8). Then, the blessings and honour will come searching your way and take you to greater heights. Therefore, in spite of your busy schedule, don’t neglect prayer and reading His word because, the Lord is waiting to hear from you and speak to you.
God wants to share His Life with you, and in return He wants you to share your life with Him. He is interested to move into your world, and involve Himself totally in it – in every relationship, every business transaction, every meal, every bill, every family problem, every joy.

God will be as involved with you as you let Him be involved. That is the reason why He encourages you to seek Him. He doesn’t expect you to be a monk and seek Him in seclusion, somewhere apart. He provided a simple, realistic way to do it.

Bible, Philippians 4:6 has prophesied – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Bible, 1 Peter 5:7 has prophesied – Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.

God is calling you having hope, come to Him in every detail of your everyday life. Your face is putting your picture of heart that you are in great trouble and you have no solution in your hand. Stand face to face in your daily prayer and ask God to remove it. You might be surprised how marvelously He provides things to get involved in that the whole family will enjoy.

Sometimes God uses circumstances to remind you to pray about everything. Some problem emerges that you have no control over. Instead of worrying, or trying to get control by finding your solution, think that God is calling you to submit the problem to Him, and watch His solution. It might be something totally out of your ability to control, but He does it for you.
Bible, James 4:2 has prophesied … ye have not, because ye ask not.

So often, rather than ask God, we like to resort to the other things James mentioned in the verse.
We try to express our strong desire, even going to great lengths (like getting others out of the way), we get competitive and aggressive, to get what we want. But we don’t ask God for it! If we think of God at all, we grumble to Him about it, blame Him for it, we ask “Why is God doing this to us ?” Or “Why is God letting this happen?”

How much better, if you desire and don’t have, instead of resorting to aggressive ways of getting what you want, why not straightaway ask God to provide?

If the Israelites in the desert had gone to God with requests instead of grumbling, their journey would have been full of thanksgiving and praise.

It takes some work to remember to pray about everything, because sometimes it doesn’t seem straightaway that you need to pray.

God does want you to be successful in business ventures, but you’d be better off consulting with your Partner before you make any “sure-fire” investments.

Why seek God? We need to be clear on why pray about everything.
The idea behind it is to open your life to God so that He will be free to do whatever He wants in your life and circumstances.

We pray about everything so that it will go God’s way, so we are living in the center of His will, and so that His will might be accomplished on earth as it is in heaven. And that is 100%.

Seek God in Your Daily Decisions. God didn’t intend that praying about everything would be a burden to you, but rather a help.

Many of you really want to do what God wants, if you can only be sure of what that is. You care about circumstances; God cares about your hearts.

Most of Scripture deals with what you are on the inside, not the effect that has on your outside style of life. God is not impressed by those who do the right things on the outside, but aren’t with Him in their hearts. In fact, the Lord rebukes His people when He says in Isaiah:

Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Jesus was not impressed by the Pharisees. He was more impressed by fishermen, tax collectors, and even former prostitutes who honestly trusted him than with the Pharisees who had a religious job but didn’t have a right heart.

He cares more whether you are living by faith than whether you are a missionary or a carpenter. More about you having a loving attitude towards your fellow workers than whether they are engineers or church staff. More about His order in the home than whether it’s an expensive house or a cheap rented apartment. More about your heart being free from pride and covetousness than whether your car is a silver Mercedes or a cheap second-hand car.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t ask God about these areas of life. Just be sure that you know what God’s main concern is, and make that your concern. Before you ask God about His will relating to your vocation or vacation, your car or your investments, ask yourself this: Has the Lord already shown you some things that He wants you to be doing that you aren’t? Let God be concerned about giving you the right directions.
Let your concern be whether or not you are obeying the will of God that you already know.

You need to be more concerned about whether you’re living in obedience to the light that you already have than in whether God will give you new light on a decision you have to make.

The reason you can relax about finding God’s will in your life decisions is that God is more concerned about showing you His will than you are in finding it!

All you have to do is to wait for Him to show you, and then do what He tells you to do.
