Focused Will Power
Today, in India we are seeing widespread panic with the explosion of the corona virus all over the place with five states — Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala — cumulatively accounting for 59% of India’s total active cases. Even though there were warning signs of second wave since at least February this year neither the governments nor the people were doing their bit. The governments did not prepare for the spread and the people were not bothered about the virus roaming around without masks, going to bars, parties etc like we are in a normal situation. Swamiji set a personal example by getting himself vaccinated and asking all the sadhaks to follow government guidelines and take all necessary precautions to keep oneself safe apart from regular meditation with at least three handwritten messages.
Such tests are not inflicted on the world by God, but by the unseen accumulated influence of humanity’s self-created mass karma. Just have faith no matter what difficulties we may face and keep in tune. Maintain an inner calmness and trust that Paramatma’s love and power will see us through these very trying times, for He is our greatest haven of safety — our eternal guide through danger to ultimate security and healing.
When one’s spiritual leader is taking up the clarion call of safety and following established guidelines plus meditating, then we just have to obey him, that’s it! But, we are intelligent people and we know it all, so we flout guidelines here and there and then when infection happens we are looking for a scapegoat. Remember the golden rule in spirituality — if something is wrong with you outside, look inside the answer is there!
I can only pray for all to follow simple guidelines, meditate regularly, do not go outside unless it is an absolute necessity, sanitize all courier packets entering the house, quarantine them for 24–48 hours before opening, etc — all basic rules which can be easily followed. Meditating regularly gives the physical body a protective shield and also develops a strong chitta shakti or will power. With this inner strength you can not only protect yourself but also act as protective support for those around you. Meditation is our greatest security, and our greatest assurance of getting through these times of crisis with our souls unconquered and untouched. Meditate and focus your inner will power on the positive, protect yourself and your surroundings and we will be through this phase by mid-May. Take care, stay safe.
