We all have deep reserves of strength of which we know nothing at all. I am sure we all have faced situations where in the most alarming of situations we manage to find the strength and the wisdom to escape from it. Invariably when asked how did you escape from that situation, the answer is I don’t know from where I got the strength or knowledge, it just came when I needed it the most. Why does this happen? Where does this strength come from?
This strength and wisdom or knowledge comes from deep within you, it is your soul with the wisdom of thousands of births which comes to your rescue, even when you are unaware that it exists. When you set out on a pilgrimage with the bare minimum of necessities to keep you going, you find that your basic necessities are always provided for — some stranger or the other comes forward to help and support — this is the way divinity works, this is God’s way of working.
The day we decide to let go and submit ourselves to the mercy of a higher power, let that power take over the operation of our life saying, ‘you know best what is good for us’, you will notice that things start happening the way you wanted them to. But when you were making an effort, all kinds of obstacles kept coming in the way and you had to struggle — now there is no struggle — just life happening!
As you go along you learn that you cannot depend on anything or anyone else for your safety or for your peaceful life. All other things, though they are around, can help you only to a certain extent. They are limited. The ultimate help always comes from the God within.
It is best if we learn to tune in to the God within and then we will always have a guiding voice telling us what to do and what not to do. This ultimate help though available is not easy to access — to access that help you need to have faith and belief; you need to surrender to the higher power and submit yourself to its will. 99% of the people will not as their ego will come in the way — it will say, ‘don’t listen to all this nonsense, I will show you the way!’
It takes tremendous strength of character to recognise that there is a higher power and that you can take its guidance. Meditation and self-realisation lead you on the path to inner peace. That path will take you to the abode of the soul — your inner abode — once that door opens you will be protected and have a perennial source of wisdom available for your guidance. These days are high energy days — stay connected, live in tune with your inner being, spread peace and joy — because that is the need of the hour today. Stay blessed!
