Hold My Hand Tightly

Every parent tells their child to hold on to their hands tightly when they are passing through crowds, crossing the roads, travelling in the dark or whenever there are any stressful situations. The idea is to provide the child with security and also do justice to the parents’ sense of duty towards their offspring.

When we move on to the spiritual path we get initiated as a disciple with a Master or Satguru. The Master gives birth to our soul and we feel born again — we feel like we have turned over a new leaf. The Satguru who gives birth to our soul is also our spiritual mother as opposed to our mother who gives birth to our physical body.

In the time in which we are living today there are many well-known Satgurus who have given birth to tens of thousands of souls — to name a few His Holiness Shivkrupanand Swamiji, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, Sri M, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and so on. We are living in the age of shifting consciousness where more and more people are rising above their ‘religion’ and moving towards their core religion which is humanity. The ‘religion’ one is born into is nothing more than a method of worship which is the path to your true religion that is humanity — being a good human being!

Swamiji tells us not to let go of his hand in this lifetime, he is holding on to each and every disciple’s hand, but if we remove our hand then there is nothing that he can do about it — you will then be on your own and it is impossible to get back into the fold and catch his hand; that is because the spiritual momentum which is now unfolding is massive and more and more people are getting on board. It is just like you are on a spiritual ship and if you fall overboard, then rescuing you is impossible as the ship is moving at high speed — you just get left behind.

It is extremely important to hold on to your Master’s hand very tightly and ensure that you reach the other shore. Your spiritual practice and your sense of complete surrender towards your Master, both will help you to reach the other shore. If not in this life-time then definitely in the next, because you carry that bank of spirituality into the next birth. The idea is to cross over in this birth itself — just surrender, become a witness, practice detached attachment, fulfil your duties as a parent, friend, employee or whatever in a detached manner — do not get emotionally involved with any person to the extent that it starts hurting you — when this happens then it is affecting you and your ego. Save yourself from this predicament.

The only way you can do that is by connecting with your Master’s subtle body or energy body and ensuring that whatever you do in this birth does not become your karma — whether good or bad. If you are truly connected to your Master then no bad karma takes place and whatever meritorious karma happens, happens with his grace, you just become a medium. So, hold on tightly, don’t let go, and ensure that you reach the other shore safely.
