Chapter 6 Verse 34

"For the mind is restless, turbulent, obstinate and very strong, O Krsna, and to subdue it is, it seems to me, more difficult than controlling the wind."

Every devotee at this cross road of this doubt and confusion.

Chapter 6 Verse 35

"The Blessed Lord said: O mighty-armed son of Kunti, it is undoubtedly very difficult to curb the restless mind, but it is possible by constant practice and by detachment."

This confirms that the Lord knows devotees weak point - ie the mind, and give remedy to conquer the restless mind by practice of yoga.

The following verse gives solace to all the yogi's -

Chapter 6 Verse 36

"This is My word : Yoga is difficult of attainment by the ungoverned man; but he who is self-controlled will, by striving through proper methods, be able to achieve it."

This is assurance from the Lord that sincere devotees can conquer the mind by practicing yoga.

With millions of stars around,

I float in the endless space,
Eternal Aum resonates,
Millions of light years away!

Dust, Stars, Planets and Galaxies,
All but fantasies;
My little self wanders in space,
Millions of light years away!

Light that’s in me, is in them,
Eternal light all around,
Holy Ghost all around,
Millions of light years away!

Trapped in this body, fall prey of Maya,
I lost freedom but not the light.
A demand for liberation made today,
Millions of light years away!

Mind is like a sponge. If you let it absorb the consciousness of jealousy, it becomes jealous.
If you let it absorb the love for God. It will always hum HIS Divine name!
So it is upto you, where to soak this sponge into...

Today is Dhanatrayodashi. The first day of Diwali. An auspicious day to gather new things / treasure your love for God.

So let the mind be absorbed in the Love for GOD.

Hare Krishna!

Chapter II, Verse 43, Page 417 from God Talks With Arjuna:

"O Mighty-armed (Arjuna)! thus cognizing the Self as superior to the intelligence, and disciplining the self(ego) by the Self(soul), annihilate the foe! hard-to-conquer, wearing the form of desire"

In the explanation..Guruji wrote...

"Golden butter does not change its color when floating on water in a black or green vessel. But the water looks black or green according to the specific color of its container. Similarly, the soul's golden bliss always remains unchanged, even while floating on the dark waters of sense-identified, deluded intelligence."

Today, I felt as if I have reacted as per my soul qualities...if the same situation had occurred a year ago, I would have lost my temper...Today, I was cool and able to handle the situation. So, it was soul's bliss!!

From Autobiography of Yogi -

Page 165 -
The deeper the Self-realization of a man, the more he influences the whole universe by his subtle spiritual vibrations, and the less he himself is affected by the phenomenal flux

Page 179 -
That only which we have within, can we see without.

If we meed no Gods, its is because we harbor none.

He who imagines his animal nature to be his only reality is cut off from divine aspirations.
