Joy and Sorrow
Some of you wish to become healthy. They also get frustrated if their health isn't improving. If they become healthy, what will they get? Joy! He will feel happy. Someone wants a promotion in their job. Or an increment. What will happen if they get it? You will feel happy. Someone wishes their children to get married. So what will you get if your children get married? You will feel happy. If your children fight with each other. If the children fight. What do the parents get? They get upset. If they make peace with each other then what happens? It bring happiness. After some years of marriage, if they don't have kids. What do you get? Sorrow. Once they have kids, what do you get? Happiness. Now what if it is a baby girl? Now if you have a son, what do you get? Happiness. So actually, we aren't looking for son or marriage or happy relationship with anyone. We are not looking for a promotion or good health. What we are searching for? Happiness. The quest! All the efforts that you make, they are to find your own self. Even in the material world you are searching yourself. And you do the same when practicing Shiv Yog. The only difference is when you search yourself in material world you indulge into some other things as well. You might experience pain and sorrow. But when you begin the journey inwards, you will get your inner self. And when you find and explore your inner self you will experience true internal bliss. When does one feel sad? One feel sad when he makes a mistake. Shiv Yog says that you are the creator of your own destiny. Most of the people live their life in ignorance. You are the creator of your destiny. If you face a problem or difficulty in your life who is responsible for it? You are responsible. And if you are happy in your life. Then who is responsible for it? You are responsible. When you face troubles. When you are happy you say that you have worked hard for it. You say you are hardworking and intelligent. You say that you are lucky and that's why you are happy. When you are faced with troubles you will blame the others for it. You will start accusing the others for your problems. He is the reason of my misery. No one makes you sad. And no one makes you happy. You are the creator of your own destiny. This is the principle of Shiv Yog. You should be aware of it. Once you realize it you can take care of yourself and you can correct your mistakes. You were not born to endure pain. But ignorant life Your ignorance is the reason of your sorrows. That is why it is said that Shiv Yog is knowingness. Shiv Yog teaches you to be conscious at every stage of your life. It is important to learn Shambhavi meditation before Shri Vidya meditation. Shambhavi meditation is related to Lord Shiva. Don't think this meditation is related to religion. Lord Shiva is vibration. The knowledge, imparted in our Vedas is not about a religion. It is about you. it talks about the being who is infinite. And like a super computer. Shiv Yog teaches you computer technologies. You will learn about the method to operate the computer that is you. In the medical science, it is said that there are more than 55 trillion cells kin every human body. This figure is of the physical body and we have 5 bodies. Let's talk about physical body first. Each cell has a mind of its own. There is your individual mind. The scientists say that each cell approximately contains 8 GB memory. How much memory does your whole body have? (8 GB X 55 Trillion Cells). This is just the beginning. Let's move ahead. A normal human being who is considered intelligent and smart uses only 4 percent of the total mind power he has. Out of the total mind power, a human uses just 4% of it. He doesn't use the remaining 96% of his mind power. What will happen if he start using it? He will become the creator of every incident of his life. You can become the creator of your good life. That is your journey. The whole universe is made up of vibration, energy and matter which is the physical reality. The holy men named this vibration Lord Shiva so that people could understand it. They also said that Lord Shiva is the foundation. Foundation of everything. And energy, vibration create energy. And they called this energy Goddess Shakti. Lord Shiva forms the base of Goddess Shakti. If anyone wants to worship Goddess Shakti then Lord Shiva should be the base.
