This podcast is based on the question from a listener who asked about karma in relation to animals; whether animals experience karma and what could cause them to be born into extreme suffering. Mohanji provides his answer.
We have a unique opportunity as humans to connect to the permanent aspect inside us, and when we do, it brings peace, calm, and we enjoy life as the experience it is. When we are stuck with possessions, positions and ever-changing relationships, we experience stresses, strains and frustrations. Mohanji shares great insight into what we are as humans.
Mohanji shares the true path of spirituality is experiential spiritually and that only what is permanent is real. Many people acquire knowledge, opinions and concepts and these can take us away from experiencing true spiritual ecstasy. He also shares the story of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who had temporary states of ecstasy with Mother Kali. It was only when he slew her with a sword, he merged in unity consciousness and attained permanent spiritual ecstasy.
Many of us do not know or realize that we have addictions which come from the need to create comfort zones. These addictions come from our insecurities and to cover them up we develop addictions. Even compulsive shopping is an addiction. Most of these are to cover up boredom, insecurities or deficiencies. Why do we go through all this? Mohanji speaks about this in today's podcast.
In this podcast Mohanji speaks about the world of illusions. We see the world only as we are, not as it is. When we are happy, our world blooms and when we are sad, our world becomes gloomy. This relative world is just our honest reflection. We are not seeing reality. Reality can only be seen when we completely merge with the supreme consciousness. Once we merge with that brightness, there is no illusion anymore. In that mode our operating platform will be unconditional love, happiness and peace within.
We all have our limiting beliefs and we carry these our whole lives. We shy from many things in life and we fail to achieve our goals only because of our limiting beliefs. This is the truth. Aside from these limiting beliefs, we are wild, strong and fearless. Mohanji illustrates this powerful message with a story and invites us to drop our limiting beliefs. Life has got to be lived, life has got to be experienced. Live a full life.
Power of Purity is a guided meditation that has brought transformation to thousands of people across the world. Mohanji speaks in more detail about this powerful meditation which unhooks us from past emotions, burdens and negative experiences leaving us free and lighter.
Mohanji gives his view of the moral of the story about the King Harishchandra who became a pauper and a graveyard keeper. Our time on earth is limited. Whatever time creates, time erases as well. So instead of pursuing appreciations and accolades that we can put on the wall, we should ask ourselves what we can give to the world today. Is it really worth running after possessions and positions in this short life? What will remain after us is only what we have delivered to the world.
Mohanji speaks about our love and curiosity for gossips and scandals. We are attracted to it, but it comes at a price which is the contamination of our mind. Because whatever we consume leaves an impact in our system. When we take in negativity, we become that. However, when we think positive, talk positively and do positive action in the world, we are purified.
Mohanji talks about his philosophy for handling the various negative situations we face in society today and the two main options we have available - acceptance or resistance. Rather than resistance or activism he chooses acceptance because through this transformation is possible. Transformation to the highest of human refinement - compassion, kindness and love.
