"Everybody has God’s light and it must be lit by a person’s own discipline. And the glass to keep it lit and shining should be kept by the person’s own courage, strength and grit. I believe it. I believe this is the love. I believe everybody has the chance to love one’s soul and every soul has the right to shine and every shine has to bring light and brightness, beauty and bountifulness to all, generation after generation.
You love your children? You do. They are beautiful. Isn’t that innocent soul in you also your life child ? Have you kissed the soul? Have you hugged the soul? Have you communicated with the soul in the morning at the ambrosial hours when there is absolutely no disturbance? Sadhna is nothing but where a disciplined one, the love, talks to one’s own soul. is nothing but where one cleans his own mind. Sadhna is nothing but where one prepares for the day to become kind and compassionate for everyone, including the enemies.
If you think you are poor, you are poor because you do not communicate with your soul, the source of prosperity, the source of reality. If you think you are desperate, you are desperate because you have no Sadhna. Desperation, depression, and a feeling of destitution comes only to those who have no discipline or Sadhna. Only a house which is not cleaned looks dirty and the mind which is not cleaned, stinks. sadhna is the most selfish act of every act, because it is a self-cleansing. Cleanliness is Godliness. It is good to wear good clothes, look good, be bright, beautiful. But when you want to be blissful and bountiful, you have to have a clear mind, a mind through which your soul, your spirit can shine.
When you stand, take a stand, and stand tall. Walk tall and stand by the strength of your soul. Not the strength of your intellect, intelligence and your cowardice. If you want to speak to anybody, to deal with anything, to have any relationship, just have relationship by the strength of your soul. Otherwise you will miss the goal of life." – Siri Singh Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa
We all know tommorow never comes, and there will always be excuses, so the question now is what are you waiting for? Just do it! Right? Disciplining one self is never easy, but you have to start somewhere. Even if you falter a bit…that’s ok. Just keep working on it. Set the intention to do it…..and then go for it!
Who’s in and ready to take action? I am. I started taking cold showers in the morning which has helped me feel awake and energized. This way I can do my banis and meditation with focus and be fully conscious.
All this blogging has made it hard to get up early since this is my after work "hobby" and keeps me up late into the night. I’m working on getting to sleep by 10PM. Hey…I’m not perfect and have the same challenges that many of you do trying to get up early and have a regular daily spiritual practice. I guess though for me…it is a priority, and even if I don’t always do the ideal I am always striving to do better and keep at it. I think that is important if you want to maintain this. Otherwise it will just be a passing thing that you try and give up on.
We can be support each other in this effort. Who’s in?
