Do not live in sentiments. Live in true intelligence. Do not yield to unhealthy attachments, low thoughts, vulgar motives. Be bold in your faith in Him, Be bold !, Be bold !. …..
What a wonderful quote from Pujya Gurudev for practicing in our day to day living.
Unhealthy attachments, sentiments, low thoughts, strong likes/dislikes etc keep me a seeker of happiness and thus deny the HAPPINESS that is my REAL NATURE.
Our normal experience is that we get upset with a situation when our attachments are strong. If I have a strong attitude about salt in my food, then every meal can become a problem.
When attachments, low thoughts, strong binding likes/dislikes do not have an effect on us and when we are able to accept things as they are, they are like the snake whose fangs have been removed. They make us human without having any hold on us.
So all that is required is to incapacitate them from causing any disturbance in the mind through the Karma/Bakthi and Jnana yoga sadhanas. Then we are with our SELF because the mind does not project. The mind is quiet, in equipoise, in Samatvam. We live in true intelligence, in total Surrender unto HIM.
Lord Krishna describes such an intelligent man as the one who is happy by himself because of himself. He is happy for no reason just as fire is hot for no reason.
Pranams to Pujya Gurudev.
