The Importance of a Firm Determination


(DradhNischaykiMahimaa)

I have heard from saints that if one firmly ascertains with an unyielding conviction that "Paramatma Hai" (God IS) then the responsibility is shouldered by God to make Himself known. We cannot know God by our efforts, but when the sentiments are firm that "God is everywhere," then God makes Himself known. God is everywhere - this point is already apt, then what is lacking in this? In this there is one thing that is lacking that we know that this world was not like this at first, and will not remain like this later on, and even at present it is changing every single moment, then too we regard the world as "existent" (Permanent, Is). In other words, we are disregarding our own experience. Due to this there is something lacking in having a firm determination, an unyielding conviction to accept that "God Is" (Existent). Therefore honor your own experience. Just as, one cannot have a dream until one falls asleep, and also when one wakes up, then the dream does not remain, but in between the dream comes. Then too in between you believe it to be real, as such, it is not there at all. In the

same way, accept the world as the world, the body was not there at first, it will not be there later on, in between too it is only seen, as such it is not there. Now if someone says that the world, this body etc., is visibly and evidently seen, how can we accept it to be "non-existent (is not)? Then brothers! Did the dream appear to be any less real ? When we were seeing the dream, it looked perfectly real. However, it was on waking, the dream was not seen. From this it is proven that it was not there at all. Hundred years back, from today, was this body there? And hundred years from today, will this body remain? Even man can accept, that it will most certainly not be there. "Adaavante cha yannasti vartamaanepi tattathaa," in other words, that which is not there in the beginning and not there in the end, is not there in the middle (at present) also. With this view, this all-in-all is constantly enlisting into "non-existent" state. The number of years that have gone by, that many years you have surely been enlisted into "non-existent" (Is not). Now the number of years that are remaining, that too is every moment enlisting into "non-existence". This entire world is every moment moving towards non-existence. The grand creation is moving towards grand destruction, and the grand destruction towards creation. This world is known as impermanent, destructible. Just as due to having money, a man is called wealthy. If he did not have money, he would not be called wealthy. Similarly if the world is called destructible, then besides destruction there is nothing else in it. There is destruction and only destruction. If one firmly resolves that "God is" then the unreal that has be assumed to be real (existent), will get out of the way and only God will manifest! The reason is God is there, He is never non-existent. Since God is present everywhere, God is present here as well. Since God is present all the time, therefore God is present now as well, being present in everyone, God is present in me, as well. Since God belongs to every one, therefore God is mine, as well. God's absence can never take place, it has never taken place, whereas the world is never ongoing, it can never be ongoing - on knowing this reality with a firm conviction, then in place of the world, you will begin to see only God. Even right now, God only is seen; because the world has no independent existence. It is only due to the existence of God that the existence of the world appears real. In this the real is only that One Paramatma (God). Then why does the world appear to be real. Jaasu satyataa te jad maya |

Bhaas satya iva moha sahaayaa || (Manas 1/117/4) It is due to foolishness that this world appears real. He who knows, but does not believe, he is called foolish. We know that this world is impermanent, and liable to perish, then too we regard it as stationary this is foolishness. If we acknowledge as much as we know, then the foolishness will not remain and we will be greatly benefited. Believe and accept God and know the world. How to know God? By knowing that God is present (existing, IS, Eternal, Permanent). And how to know the world? By knowing that the world is NOT (it is non-existing, impermanent, perishing, constantly changing). On knowing the world correctly, God will manifest. If this point is clearly witnessed, then why is it not examined deeper? In this the reason is that we take pleasure from this world. As long as there is greed for worldly pleasures, till then even on saying that "this world is perishable, it is impermanent, it is unreal," then too it will not be seen as so. A black bee, drills a hole in a bamboo and lives there. The bamboo is so very hard, but the teeth of a bee are so strong that it is able to drill holes in it! But when it rests on a lotus flower, and at night when the lotus closes it's petals, then it is unable to drill its way out. It thinks that the night will pass by, and when the morning comes, with the sunrise, then the lotus will blossom again and at that time I will fly away. It makes holes in a very hard bamboo, but is unable to drill the soft petals of the lotus. Is it so weak? It becomes weak because it takes pleasure from the lotus, therefore it becomes weak! Similarly men take pleasure from the world, and therefore they become weak. There is a saying in Bikaner - "raadaraa kaacha" in other worlds, in front of a woman, a man becomes weak and "kaccha". What iskacchapan? Taking pleasure from the world is itself "Kacchapan". We have to get rid of this "kacchapan". "God is" is accepted and "the world is perishable" is self-evident. If you correctly and truthfully get to know the world, then God will manifest Himself, that is all there is to it. Sit for sometime and let this point settle in that outside-inside, updown, everywhere there is only God. Just as while taking a dip in the ocean, there is water everywhere, on all four sides, like that there is only God and God only everywhere. The pitiable

world is getting destroyed just like that!

Questioner - How to be free of wanting to take pleasure from the world? Answer - If you understand this to be your weakness, then it will be go away. It will go away when you let it go away. Someone else cannot get rid of it. Therefore you exert your full effort. Thereafter if it does not go away, then call out to the Lord "He Naath! He Naath!" It is a principle that when a man becomes helpless, then he most certainly takes the support of the Almighty. One is that you do not want to get rid of the attraction you have towards worldly pleasures. And another is that you do not get rid of it. These are the two obstacles. When these two obstacles are removed, then too if attraction to pleasure does not leave, then at that time, you will call out to God on your own.
Even when things don't happen according to the child's wishes, then he begins to cry, and on crying all work gets done. In the same way, Gentlemen! Cry in front of the Lord, then all will be alright. That Lord is entirely capable. When He is present, why must we experience suffering? God is ours. The child says that mother is mine, then the mother has to take him in her lap. She is only a mother of this life; but Lord is the Eternal Mother of all. Narayan ! Narayan !! Narayan !!! From book in hindi "Vaastavik Sukh" by Swami Ramsukhdasji.
