One should not succumb to worries

One day (23 May) D. D. Kashyap, 50, a Bombay film director, came for darshan. Baba remarked to him, “I know everything. Even then, I want you to introduce yourself to me. All this is to meet you on your level.

I am happy to see you. Are you happy? Have you any worry?”

Kashyap said, “Nothing special.”

“When one attains a human form, whether well placed in life or not, worries in a way become inevitable, but one should not succumb to them.”

Kashyap said, “Formerly, I was well placed in life and high in the film world as well. During these last few years, however, I’ve had to experience many ups and downs. And today, as I have the fortune to sit at your holy feet, I realize all the more that whatever has happened was worthwhile, and that it was all the will of God.”

Pleased, Baba commented:

This is a good way of understanding events in life. Read God Speaks. If you understand it properly, you will grasp what I am saying. You will find that there is nothing in the world to worry about. Whatever happens, happens due to impressions or sanskaras. Sanskaras make the dream of creation appear to be real and lasting, and create undue worries.

The so-called good times are like happy dreams. Owing to the congenial atmosphere, they become a long and pleasant sight, and you want to enjoy them more and more. But when you awake from sleep, you find that the world of dreams has no value.

Bad times are like frightening dreams. You crave to remove yourself from such situations as early as possible. For example, if a tiger leaps right onto you in your dream, you awaken instantaneously.

It is God’s Plan to awaken everyone from the Dream of Creation and make him live in Him and experience His infinite bliss. The law of opposites operates unfailingly to stage the so-called good and bad times. And in His compassion, God leads everyone and everything toward Himself, Who is beyond good and evil. So there is really not a thing to worry over.

I am Eternal Bliss. I eternally suffer too for those who remain steeped in ignorance, as the being of everything and everyone in illusion.
