Power

We all strive for power, some think getting more money will make me powerful, some getting more knowledge will give me more power, others believe in having influential friends will make them more powerful, and then there are some who think building strong body will make them more powerful.

There arises a natural question, why everyone is striving for power, power for what, power over what?
Power so that we can do what we want. Power so that others listen to us, we can control them, tell them what to do.
Yes by power one may control thousands, manipulate hundreds, but in truth, such a person is totally powerless...
He is the slave of his own mind, he behaves the way mind wants it to behave. He is actually the most helpless of all.

The real power is, control over one's own mind, मन .
Because one who has controlled his mind, is the only one who really knows what he wants. Because one who has controlled his mind knows divine, knows the ways of divine, is in direct touch with divine.

Yes, now the question is how to control mind, is suppressing our desires, our thoughts control over mind. No, never!!

The mind can come in control only when you become aware, become aware of your thoughts, of your actions, of your desires.

See from where the desire of hunger came, did body asked for food, or was it an aroma from neighbour's kitchen.

See when you get up to give your seat, is there someone inside you, who would like to tell it to others, who wants others to see and appreciate.

Remember just one key, as long as what you are doing has a desire that others respond to it in a way, it is mind. For mind you and others are always separate. For awareness, you do not exist!!!


आज इतना ही !!!
