In an application form for a school/ college or passport or driving license, etc., there is a section that says – for office use only. That is something that we don’t have to care about filling. Life is just like that. All we need to do is to be aware of what all is happening in this moment and be mindful in our reactions to all of it. Rest all is ‘for office use only’. If we have unconditional faith in life, then our reactions will not be contaminated by feelings of fear and insecurity about life. All that will be there will be love for self and others. One will be sure that all that he needs in this moment will be provided to him to run this life and hence will not fall into the trap of desires followed by sorrow and suffering. If something has resonated in our minds after reading all that is written in the book then I am sure you will have no problem in understanding the essence of what I have written here. Desires always cause discontentment and sorrow. True luxury is when one doesn’t need anything to feel complete or happy. This is because everything in life is temporary. So even if you get what you want, a time comes when you might lose it. And at that time, if your happiness depended on that thing, then losing it will lead you to suffering. Of course there is no problem in having more and more but what is your vantage point of looking at things? Luxury of life is when one is content with the decision of life and has full trust in the wisdom of the life force that runs the whole universe as well as himself, so beautifully and with amazing synchronisation. That, for me, is when you can say that I am totally free, no strings attached at all. When you can accept life, as it is, now. We can apply this only when we will understand that life is anyways a story going on as per the divine plan. Our trying to get something is fine but getting desperate and then also becoming frustrated if we don’t get it will only create negativity in life. Surrendering to life’s wisdom only means this. It doesn’t mean to stop working or trying. It means to do what the heart says, as long as it doesn’t harm anyone and also accept life’s decision if we don’t get what our heart wants. This will simply ensure least negativity in thoughts and feelings and therefore life. When one is fully content with what is in life now and here, then one is happy in the present moment and doesn’t want to go anywhere else. Then he accepts all that is, as it is, without fear or doubt about now or future. Then one doesn’t need to judge anything as good or bad, right or wrong, because everything is ‘correct’ in the larger sense. One knows he is not the doer anyways and hence there is no pride or guilt about any actions performed through him. One feels at home in that moment, completely safe and at peace. There is nothing to do, nowhere to go in order to achieve perfection in life. Life is just perfect as it is with this body and awareness about self and life. Then he is also fearless, because desires always have a subtle element of fear in them, which ceases when desires cease. Then one knows only love. He loves himself and loves all that is in life. Thank life for all that it is. Trust the wisdom of life as it presents itself to you, now. Know also that you are life itself and a part of its wisdom. Each and every moment in our life is basically how the universe is evolving or acting out at that time through you….whether it is a moment of happiness, sorrow, anger, greed, guilt, pride, being right, being wrong, etc. It is all correct coz it is a moment of the universe in the universe. We are just the eyes of the universe to see itself in action. We are the awareness that we are alive. Each cell of our body is controlled by the universe and so it is self sufficient. That is the final purpose of a human life….to bring out this awareness from within. We must be comfortable with not knowing what’s gonna happen next. Rather we must not know anything about anything and just surrender ourselves to this moment. Only then can the universe act through us in its original form. Till the time we are unhappy with the decisions of the universe and doubt them, it will obstruct the flow of the universe. LIAPH 2 God knows more about what we need than what we may want.
