Be pure because God is pure Part – 2 (Ishwar Putra Arun)

 Ishwar Putra Arun

pen (2)

The Lord created this entire world out of His own essence.  Every single part of this creation- matter, energy, consciousness and soul are parts of the Lord.  There is absolutely nothing in this universe that has come from a different source. In fact there is nothing else apart from the Lord. The Bhagwat Gita says that this universe is completely permeated by the Lord but the Lord is not permeated by creation.  If creation be a fruit, the Lord is the tree.  So there can be no question that all things, seen and unseen are nothing but some aspect of the Lord Himself.

This is the first essential knowledge that helps on the path of liberation since when we realize this then we know that our essential nature is divine and then we start taking the right steps back towards our real nature

The second thing to know is that why did the Lord create this universe?  What motive did He have?  The answer is that it was only to experience

Himself and to have someone to love that the Lord did this.  There was no other motive except Love.  Love was enough to start the act of creation by the Lord. To achieve this goal of experiencing this love, the Lord divided Himself from a singularity to a duality.  From One, He became two.  The first portion He sent forth to create the material universe and the second portion was He Himself which impregnated itself into every pore of material creation.

The result is that it is the Lord Himself who sits inside each one of us and witnesses the play of creation.  This is why the Holy Bible says that – “The Lord is my witness.”

The third thing to know is that – that part of the Lord that is inside each of us is called the individual soul.  The individual soul consists of the essence of God-which is ever unchanging wrapped up in delusion. That wrapping of delusion is what makes the individual soul forget his true nature and get attracted and subsequently attached to creation rather than to the creator. This is why individual souls-even though eternal- go through the cycle of birth and death.  This happens because of being attached to some aspect of this creation we chase a certain experience, or a particular person, or a particular relationship that gave us pleasure and we follow that memory from birth after birth.

The fourth thing to remember is that, since our essential nature is divine, we can be called the children of God.  God intended that He would create this universe and send His children to enjoy it but at some point the children forgot that they had come to a playground and this was not their real home.  They forgot their real home and their real eternal nature.  They forgot that this playground was temporary and ever-changing and that permanent happiness and home was with only with their father in heaven.

The seductive powers of this universe are such that we, the children have completely got involved with this playground.  We think we own some part of it and we fight over and even hurt each other to enjoy the ownership of this playground.

God had wanted that, His children enjoy the pleasures of His creation-the garden of Eden- that He created for us but He had never expected that the children would get so engrossed with the playground that they would forget Him and their real home.  He never expected that His children would give priority to His creation rather than to Him. But this is what happened.  The keeper of creation-Kaal made sure by offering temptation that Man would get completely seduced and enmeshed in creation and one day when God came to visit his children in the Garden of Eden, He found His children hiding from Him.  They had eaten the forbidden fruit against God’s express command.  This is the first time man disobeyed their father and the fall of man started. For the first time man felt ashamed of himself and felt the need to hide from God. Man discovered, deceit and he learnt to speak untruth as a consequence of the guilt and fear he felt on disobeying his father. All the guilt and fear we feel today is the descendent of that original sin where we disobeyed our most loving and kind father and did things that we were not supposed to do. Since that day Man learnt to live in his mind and be clever instead of living in his heart and be loving as God had intended it to be.  This is when man was banished from the garden of heaven into the physical world and that is when he had to toil to earn his daily bread and this is when man started to undergo the cycle of birth and death.

The tragedy is that man has not learnt from his mistakes and even today he still believes that the playground is his home and he wants to indulge in the perks, pleasures and temptations of the playground.  Man has not only forgotten his father but also forgotten his own true Self.

In that sense it is not God who has left us but it is we who have left God.  The troubles and difficulties we face today as individuals and as societies and nations are not created by our father-the Lord, but by ourselves and our decision to leave God as our guide.  Just as children fighting and hurting each other in a playground is not the fault of the parents, similarly the situation in the world today is self created by man. God should not be blamed for it.  Just as parents cannot remove the hurt and anger that a child feels childishly as he plays in the playground, God cannot remove the hurt and anger we feel in this world.  Happiness can be found only when we realize the real nature of this world and our real divine nature.

We may have forgotten God but He has not forgotten us.  He knows we are being foolish and that one day we will wake up.  God eagerly waits for that day when His son will finally remember Him and call out to Him for succour.

Not only has God not forgotten us, He actively remains in our presence so that He may protect us from real harm and provide us with indirect guidance.

Today He is amongst us with the name ‘Lord Kalki’.  He desires that His children remember Him and for that to happen, we His children have to become a bit like Him.  We, His children must not live in sin since He Himself is sinless.  It is fairly clear that in today’s time, people’s behaviour, living style and style of worship all have become defective.  Both kings and their subjects are living lives that are against the teachings of God and are trying to deceive the Lord for some petty gain.  The covenant that was agreed upon between man and God has been wilfully broken by each and every man.  This is why we are distant from the Lord and we cannot see Him face to face which is essentially our right and heritage.  We ourselves have given away our own real treasure in exchange for trinkets of glass and beads.

God constantly tells us through all means possible that we are not what we think we are and he also guides us on how to realize our true nature.  God says very clearly to man that (1) God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God.

(2)Man must obey the wishes of God and implement them in his daily life and

(3) Man should not be corrupt and nor try to make the image of God corrupt since God can never be corrupt.

To approach God freely, to see Him and to be close to Him, has always been part of His plan for us from the beginning; His divine light was meant to illumine every human relationship with truth and transparency. In the state of original purity, there was no need to put on masks, to engage in ploys or to attempt to conceal ourselves from one another. Everything was clear and pure in the beginning.

As mentioned above, When Adam and Eve yielded to temptation and broke off this relationship of trusting communion with God, sin entered into human history. The effects were immediately evident, within themselves, in their relationship with each other and with nature. And how dramatic the effects are! Our original purity has been defiled. From that time on, we were no longer capable of closeness to God. Men and women began to conceal themselves, to cover their nakedness. Lacking the light which comes from seeing the Lord, they saw everything around them in a distorted fashion, myopically. The inner compass which had guided them in their quest for happiness lost its point of reference, and the attractions of power, wealth, possessions, and a desire for pleasure at all costs, led them to the abyss of sorrow and anguish.

The Bible, Matthew 5:8 prophesied “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Let us now try to understand more fully how this blessedness comes about through purity of heart. First of all, we need to appreciate the biblical meaning of the word heart. In Hebrew thought, the heart is the centre of the emotions, thoughts and intentions of the human person. Since the Bible teaches us that God does not look to appearances, but to the heart (Bible, 1 Samuel 16:7), we can also say that it is from the heart that we see God. This is because the heart is really the human being in his or her totality as a unity of body and soul, in his or her ability to love and to be loved.

In the heart of each man and woman, the Lord’s invitation constantly resounds: “Seek My face!” (Bible, Psalms 27:8). At the same time, we must always realize that we are poor sinners. For example, we read in the Book of Psalms: “Who can climb the mountain of the Lord? Who shall stand in His holy place? The one who has clean hands and a pure heart” (Bible, Psalms 24:3-4). But we must never be afraid or discouraged: throughout the Bible and in the history of each one of us we see that it is always God who takes the first step. He purifies us so that we can come into His presence.

When the prophet Isaiah heard the Lord’s call to speak in His name, he was terrified and said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips”. And yet the Lord purified him, sending to him an angel who touched his lips, saying: “Your guilt is taken away, and your sin is forgiven”. In the New Testament, when on the shores of lake Genessaret Jesus called his first disciples and performed the sign of the miraculous catch of fish, Simon Peter fell at his feet, exclaiming: “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord” (Bible, Luke 5:8). Jesus’ reply was immediate: “Do not be afraid; henceforth you will be fishers of men” (Bible, Luke 5:10). And when one of the disciples of Jesus asked him: “Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied,” the Master replied: “He who has seen me has seen the Father (Bible, John 14:8-9).

The Lord’s invitation to encounter him is made to each of you, in whatever place or situation you find yourself. It suffices to have the desire for “a renewed personal encounter with the son of God, or at least an openness to letting Him encounter you; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day”. We are all sinners, needing to be purified by the Lord. But it is enough to take a small step towards the son of God to realize that He awaits us always with open arms, particularly in the sacrament of Reconciliation, a privileged opportunity to encounter that divine mercy which purifies us and renews our hearts.

In what, then, does the happiness born of a pure heart consist? From Jesus’ list of the evils which make someone impure, we see that the question has to do above all with the area of our relationships. Each one of us must learn to discern what can “defile” his or her heart and to form his or her conscience rightly and sensibly, so as to be capable of “discerning the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect” (Bible, Romans 12:2). We need to show a healthy concern for creation, for the purity of our air, water and food, but how much more do we need to protect the purity of what is most precious of all: our heart and our relationships. This “human ecology” will help us to breathe the pure air that comes from beauty, from true love, and from holiness.

I am asking you a question: “Where is your treasure? In what does your heart find its rest?”

The reply is that our hearts can be attached to true or false treasures, they can find genuine rest or they can simply slumber, becoming lazy and lethargic. The greatest good we can have in life is our relationship with God. Are you convinced of this? Do you realize how much you are worth in the eyes of God? Do you know that you are loved and welcomed by Him unconditionally, as indeed you are? Once we lose our sense of this, we human beings become an incomprehensible enigma, for it is the knowledge that we are loved unconditionally by God which gives meaning to our lives. Do you remember the conversation that Jesus had with the rich young man (Bible, Mark 10:17-22)? The evangelist Mark observes that the Lord looked upon

Him and loved him (Bible, Mark 10: 21), and invited him to follow Him and thus to find true riches. I hope, dear friends, that this loving gaze of the Lord will accompany each of you throughout life. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honourable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

In the next and final part-part 3, we will discuss some of the ways by which man can remain pure.

Only God is dependable

Man expects God to answer his every desire and wish.  He does not understand that he is bound by the law of Karma and that he is reaping what he himself had sown in his earlier life or in his previous birth(s).  God is like the father who helplessly watches His child committing mistake after mistake and then paying for those mistakes.  God tries to help by giving the right advice. God advises His children constantly to give up these wrong ways and let go off the worldly attachments that bind him to the wheel of karma but man does not listen to God. God says in so many scriptures, that the only way to be free of the cycle of birth and death and be born into eternal life and happiness is to be attached to the father and not the father’s creation.  Man does not understand this. Instead he blames God for his bad circumstances. Take the Paris terrorist attacks for instance.  Man is killing man in the name of God and society blames God for letting it happen! Man creates conflict, causes injustice to others and then blames God for not stopping it.

Man does not understand that it is not God that does these things but he himself.  Not only does man does not understand this, he blames God and as a result loses faith in God. He stops listening to God and/ or praying to Him.  He stops treating God like his father and starts depending on the world for help, relief and happiness.  He even denies God’s very existence and starts depending on his own efforts for being happy. This is how the gap between man and God becomes wider and wider and finally man loses all connection with his own essence-which is God- and he loses all chances for salvation. Such a man is trapped eternally-till he wakes up to this reality-in the cycle of creation. The reality is that only by being connected to God can we find eternal peace and happiness and the fact is that by depending on the world, one can ultimately get only Worries, sorrow, burden, painful life, fear etc although in the beginning it may seem that things are working out.

God sees all this happening but he does not get disillusioned with His children or get angry with them. He continues to be there for His children.  Even if we give up on God, he does not give up on us. He is ever-present in the universe and even today He is physically present amongst us as Lord Kalki.

God wants a one-to-one relationship with all His children and does not like to deal with His children through intermediatories. (Bible, Mark 10:13-16) tells the following tale-In ancient time, when God was once again physically in this world, people would bring their little children to the Lord for His blessings but the disciples would rebuke them saying, ‘Don’t come near the Lord’ But the Lord said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them…” and He took the children in His arms, placed His hands on them and blessed them.

You love God because He loves you.  There is no reason or selfishness in it and because He loves you, He wants the best for your life. It is said in Bible, Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Yes, it is a fact that God wants us to prosper and enjoy every single day of our lives and have a bright future as well. When problems assail us, even the mightiest man on earth becomes weak and crumbles. The spirit of man becomes lean and he succumbs to the pressures of the problems he faces. The key to receive strength in your spirit is to wait on the Lord and act in His time. The Bible, Isaiah 40:29 prophesied “He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength” .

Lord Kalki is present in human form even today in our midst. He wants to place His hands upon you and bless you. This special day is not only for babes and small children but also for all of us, since we are nothing but children to the Lord. When you come to Him, He will bless you abundantly. He will supply all your needs and you will lack nothing. Bible, Philippians 4:19 prophesied – “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by His personal name.”

Yes, God will supply all your needs. Be of good cheer! Pray to the Lord saying, “Lord Kalki, I want to be a blessed child. Come into my heart and stay with me. I want to lead a life which is pleasing in Your sight.” The Word of God says in Bible, 1 John 4:16, “…God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” O! my beloved, when you love the Lord with all your heart, He will be with you always and bless you in every area of your life. He will teach you in the way you should go and lead you wonderfully in the days to come.

How God Fulfill His Promise Part – IV

images (11)

There is one question that troubles most devotees of the Lord.  That question is that even after accepting God as the prime focus of their lives, they find that the difficulties of life do not lessen.  They still face all the difficulties, trials and tribulations that they had faced earlier.  That accepting the Lord and surrendering to Him does not seem to change their lives for the better.

That’s when most people start doubting the Lord and their faith in the Lord gets shaken. Devotees also face a lot of sarcasm from their near-and-dear ones who taunt them by saying-“What is the use of praying to the Lord, when the Lord does not make your life better?”

This is the point that is being answered in this article.  The Lord says we are His children, that He promises us happy and joyful lives but the reality that all men face as they go through this cyclic journey is that how will they manage their problems. This constant stress results in the absence of peace of mind and absence of joy in our lives. And even after surrendering to the Lord the situation remains the same.

How can we re-council or explain these two things.  The Lord can never utter a false-hood and His words have to come true, then how can we explain the apparent contradiction?

To understand this contradiction we have to understand three things. First -Who is God, second-who are we and the third is how God created this universe where we live.

When we understand this, then everything falls in place and we lose that doubt and sorrow. We develop that faith that is so necessary for the Lord’s promise to work.

The fact is that God is the father of the universe and our soul is part of the Lord Himself.  We are His children and we are He Himself in a deluded form.  But if that is true then why do we go through sufferings?  The answer lies in how this universe was created.  God first created Kaal, who was then given the task of creating this universe.  Kaal created this universe through first creating illusion and ignorance. Through that illusion, Kaal created separation between the Lord and us.  He also created through Maya, temptations that kept our focus and attachment on the creation he had created, rather than on the father of creation.  This is why we are unable to experience God even though we are He Himself.  Kaal took the promise from God that He would never show direct miracles or interfere with the law of Karma.  Kaal took this promise because that was the only way the universe could be created. The law of Karma is the basis of the universe and if the law of Karma is tampered with then there will be a problem in the running of the universe itself.  We notice that even when the Lord takes Avatar, He rarely takes recourse of open miracles and He works through His devotees rather than taking direct action Himself.

This is why even though we surrender to the Lord, we have to still face the balance Karmas that we have created and for which we have to pay for.  This is why our troubles do not lessen and even sometimes increase since the process of winding up of our Karmas is accelerated when we surrender to the Lord. But that does not mean that nothing has changed.  By surrendering to the Lord, we have taken the most important step in getting liberated.  We have said to the Lord that we want him instead of His creation.  The Lord listens to our prayers and is there to help us in case of any real trouble.  The devotees may notice that their troubles continue but when the situation is about to get out of hand, some mysterious force comes to rescue as well.  The mysterious force is the Lord Himself!  When we truly want the Lord and are not praying to Him because we desire worldly things then we are truly protected and once our Karmas are worked out we will find liberation. Those who don’t take this step are forever doomed to constantly go through the cycle of birth and death and at the time of the dissolution, their souls also face disintegration. Mostly people are not true devotees.  They pray to the Lord for fulfilling their worldly desires but very few really want the Lord alone.  Mostly want small trinkets from Him and the Lord gives them those trinkets as per the Law of Karma but those people who understand that the universe is not worth anything and only the Lord is real then those people step beyond the bounds of Kaal and into the protection of the Lord Himself.

To the true devotee, the Lord is ever present and protects him at all times.  The Lord on seeing such a devotee nervous and joyless even takes avatar and comes down to the earth in physical form.  Even today the Lord has come down to the earth. Today He comes with the new name ‘Kalki’. He will fulfil all the promises He has made to His true devotees through great surprises or through miracles.  Today people take the promise of the Lord lightly and think that those promises will never be fulfilled.  All the things that you want to have in your life, the Lord is easily able to provide but what is required from you is to have faith in the Lord just as Moses had faith in the Lord. It is said that Moses had so much faith in God that God would speak to Moses face to face.

We need to develop the same kind of faith in the Lord.

God has a unique plan for all of us.  It can be said that He has a custom made crown for each of His devotees and He tests His devotees. The bigger the test, the bigger the crown He gives.

In Bible, James 2:5 it is prophesied – … Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom He promised this to all those who love Him. So be of good cheer today. If you are suffering under great trials, God understands. He sees everything you are going through and He promises a crown of life for all who love Him.

So don’t give up, keep on going, for one day we will all be wearing a crown of life created for us by our loving Father. He has promised in Bible, Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye”.

The promises of God start with II Timothy 3:16, in the bible where God tells us that all Scriptures in the Bible are inspired by God.

With this promise of God in hand we can then be assured that what we learn in the Bible comes from Him!

I ask you – Are you standing on the promises of God today? Is God your all-in-all?

The first promise of the Bible, Genesis 3:15 is, “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.” This was further confirmed in Bible, Galatians 4:4; Luke 2:7; Revelation 12.5.and the last promise found in the Bible, Revelation 22:20 says, “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming quickly.’

According to the Bible readers, there are total 30,000 verses raised against doubt – every verse being a promise that God makes to us. I am asking you – do we believe in even TEN promises of God?  Check yourselves whether you believe in even the following TEN Verses about God’s Promises or not: This will indicate whether you have faith in the Lord or not.  If you have faith the Lord, He will fetch you into eternal life while if you doubt, you shall be lost.

(1) Bible, II Peter 1:4:-

And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.

(2) Bible, Jeremiah 29:11:-

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

(3) Bible, Matthew 11:28-29:-

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

(4) Bible, Isaiah 40:29-31:-

He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

(5) Bible, Philippians 4:19:-

And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us.

(6) Bible, Romans 8:37-39:-

No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God.

7) Bible, Proverbs 1:33:-

But all who listen to me will live in peace, untroubled by fear of harm.”

(8) Bible, John 14:27:-

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give So don’t be troubled or afraid.

(9) Bible, Romans 10:9:-

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

(10) Bible, Romans 6:23:-

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life.

These above ten Biblical Verses about the promises of God are meant to encourage you today. Read through them slowly and let God work these promises into your hearts. These scriptures come from both the old and new testament. 

Believe them and be delivered.

 Focus on God’s promise

images (58)
We all are traveler of the path of old karma and suffering at some stage in our lives. We whine and grumble endlessly at even the slightest suffering we go through. We say, “Oh, what a big trial! I am unable to bear this. With whom can I share my tears and mental agony?
The constant question that all men face as they go through this cyclic journey is that how will they manage their problems. Man feels helpless and worried in the face of all these problems. This constant stress results in the absence of peace of mind and absence of joy in our lives. Seeing man nervous and joyless, The Lord decided to come down to the earth, on Indian soil. He came with the new name ‘Kalki’. He has promised us many things but the question is that how will He fulfill these promises?  This will be done through the appearance of a great surprise or will be done as miracles.  Today mostly people take the promise of the Lord lightly and think that those promises will never be fulfilled.  All the things that you want to have in your life, the Lord is easily able to provide but what is required from you is to have faith in the Lord just as Moses had faith in the Lord. It is said that Moses had so much faith in God, that God would speak to Moses face to face.
God’s promises are to carry us through when we need help. He has made a promise to all those who love Him. He has promised each one of us a crown of life that we will wear for eternity! Because our Heavenly Father never makes duplicates, I can only assume that each crown will be uniquely crafted and custom-fitted for the wearer. I find it interesting that James speaks about the promise of a crown in the same verse where He talks about persevering under great trial. Perhaps the greater the trials, the bigger the crown? I don’t have a theological coat rack to hang my hat on for this one, but I do know that God’s heart is for the under privileged and the marginalized.
In Bible, James 2:5  it is prophesied – … Listen, my dear brothers: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of  the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom He promised those who love Him? So be of good cheer today. If you are suffering under great trials, God understands.
He sees everything you are going through and He promises a crown of life for all that love Him. So don’t give up, keep on going, for one day we will all be wearing a crown of life created for us by our loving Father. He has promised in Bible, Psalm 32:8, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye”.
The promises of God start with Bible, II Timothy 3:16 when God tells us that all Scriptures in the Bible are inspired by God. With this promise of God in hand we can then be assured that what we learn in the Bible comes from Him! Are you standing on the promises of God today? Is God your all in all?
