  • Loving the Real in Us | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    than I am Naturally I will feel miserable If I love my mind for the sake of my mind tomorrow I shall see millions of mental giants right in front of me and my mental capacity will fade into insignificance If I love my vital dynamism for the sake of my vital dynamism then I shall see that there are millions of people who are simply inundated with striking dynamism Similarly if I love anything else of my own for it s own sake I am bound to be frustrated I shall defeat my own divine purpose If I love myself just because God is expressing Himself through this body vital mind heart and soul then I see that I am unique and peerless in the whole history of the universe No other person is going to be created by God with the same capacities the same understanding the same experiences Each individual can love himself just because he is a direct channel of the Divine God wants to express Himself in each individual in a unique way When we become consciously and fully one with God we not only fulfill Him but we also fulfill ourselves When we say that we really and truly love ourselves it means that we consciously feel that Truth is constantly breathing in us with us and for us Our very breath on earth is the living reality of the Truth We love and adore ourselves at every moment not because of our sound bodies dynamic vitals refined minds and pure hearts but because God is inside us God is utilising us God is fulfilling Himself in us and through us Each individual has to be surcharged with this supreme Truth We should each consciously feel that our life on earth is the outer

  • Simplicity | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Chinmoy The Divine Hero Simplicity About the spiritual value of simplicity To have simplicity is to run towards God without darkness worries or impurity In the spiritual life the higher we go the deeper we go the farther we go the more we see that Reality is only the song of simplicity and nothing else God is always simple but we think of Him as complex The entire cosmic Game is extremely simple but we look at it from a different angle in an obscure way For us everything is complex because we always use the mind We do not want to walk along a straight line If a path is simple and straight we feel that it has no value Unless we zigzag in a serpentine way we get no joy Just because we value complexity we do not take the sunlit path the simple straight path Right from the beginning of our lives we become accustomed to doing things in a very complicated way so simplicity is most difficult for us When a child is born the mother spends a lot of money on buying him the most beautiful and expensive clothes She wants to show that she is richer than her neighbours The child would be equally happy with simple clothes but right from the beginning he is taught that simple things are not good So naturally when the child grows up he does not care for simplicity A simple person will have only what he needs and he will know the difference between what he needs and what he wants But we tend to feel that whatever we want we desperately need We are trying to possess the world But before we possess the world to our wide surprise we see that the world has already

  • The Attitude of a Divine Hero | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Books by Sri Chinmoy The Divine Hero The Attitude of a Divine Hero About the attitude needed to become a divine hero Everyone needs victory There are two kinds of victory One is transient transitory like a mound of sand The other is eternal everlasting When we gain victory by force this victory does not last But when we gain victory as the result of our soul s oneness with the Supreme and our soul s delight this victory lasts for good A man who is by nature cowardly wants to conquer fear If he can conquer fear he feels that he will become his true self his fearless divine self A poor man wants to be rich he wants to become a multimillionaire By amassing money he feels that he will gain victory over his poverty A spiritual man wants to conquer ignorance limitation bondage and death By conquering ignorance he feels that he can become one with Immortality You should always have the attitude of a divine hero A divine hero is a spiritual person who will work for the divine manifestation here on earth who will act for the sake of the Divine the Supreme If we are frightened when a problem arises then we cannot be chosen instruments of the Divine of the Supreme Life has to be accepted Granted the world is all imperfection We face problems every day Moreover the more spiritually advanced a person is the greater is his suffering due to the present conditions of the world The world embodies divinity but we deny even this simple truth We have to feel the embodiment of the ultimate Truth in this world of ours and then to reveal and manifest that Truth with our dynamic meditation conscious aspiration and

    as the soul for the full manifestation of God on earth then we can transform them If we do not condemn the body vital mind and heart on the contrary if we tell them that they can be the chosen instruments of God that God needs them for His divine Lila or Game on earth then eventually we can transform them The unruly members of our family will before long feel the importance of their respective roles in the fulfillment of God s manifestation They can and will be unified for the fulfillment of a single goal Self control takes time It cannot be achieved overnight Through introspection self examination and proper meditation one achieves it Again self control does not mean self torture Neither does it mean austerity Unfortunately in the West self control has been misunderstood People think that the austere arduous life practiced by some Indian aspirants of the past stands as the ideal of self control But that kind of austere life torturing and punishing the body is not real self control It is self mortification If somebody wants to realise God by fasting for days and months then he will be embraced by death not God A normal natural life the middle path is what God demands from us The Buddha taught us to follow the middle path not to go to extremes We have to be very firmly planted on earth The root of the tree is under the ground and the branches are looking up towards the highest Self control is within and self manifestation is without Today s self control will be tomorrow s self transcendence I wish to tell about an incident in the life of Socrates Once Socrates and a host of admirers went to see a palmist The palmist

  • The Patience of a Farmer | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    sincere longing does not mean that one cannot have patience A kindergarten student sees that his brother has got a Master s degree He has a sincere longing for a Master s degree as well but he knows that it will take him twenty years to get it If he does not pay attention to his studies now then he will not pass his examination Then how will he go on to high school and university Right now he is the seed Gradually the seed will germinate and become a tiny plant Finally it will become a huge banyan tree Does the seed think that by some miracle it will turn into a banyan tree overnight No it is absurd There has to be an evolutionary process of gradual development If you feel that each moment is leading you towards your destination then this progress itself is a kind of partial goal You cannot separate divine progress real progress from your goal Rather than fighting against time you should try your utmost to derive spiritual benefit spiritual progress from each second Each time you make progress you have to feel that you have touched something of the goal itself a tiny portion In this way you will feel that you are really advancing At this very moment in the twinkling of an eye you want to realise God This is your own sense of need But if you feel that God needs your realisation infinitely more than you need it then you see that it becomes His responsibility God takes this responsibility on His shoulders most sincerely After all it is He who wants to manifest in and through us And if we remain unrealised then how can He fulfill Himself in and through us But we have to know

  • Weakness versus Strength | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    am conquered by a little mosquito or an ant Why Precisely because I live in the body We make ourselves feel that we are stronger than the senses but the senses are really stronger than we are Unless and until we have realised the highest Truth the senses are infinitely more powerful They are compelling us to do what they want But if we live in the soul then the senses are under our control If we live in the soul if our consciousness becomes totally one with the soul which is the source of light and delight then mosquitoes can bite ants can bite the whole world like a venomous snake can bite We will remain unperturbed we will remain in the sea of silence and tranquility Let us look at self indulgence as something that we think is very insignificant or very easy to conquer but that we are allowing to enter into us Some people say I smoke true but I can easily stop smoking In this way they go on for months and years They can conquer smoking they say but after twenty years they see how difficult it is They do not they cannot stop When people surrender to their weaknesses we shall see how they ruin their lives One philosophy is that we shall only pray and meditate on God and God will take care of the rest of the world But again we can also look around we can watch others and learn from their experiences Let us say that I want to touch fire because I feel that fire is so charming But if I see that somebody else has touched fire and now his hand is burnt why shall I also do the same thing Has God not shown me that

  • Work: The Prayer of the Body | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    itself is a true form of meditation Right now when you are working you may not think of God or you may not feel the reality of God You see physical work as just work But if you can see work as an opportunity to express your capacity or to reveal your goodness your divinity then most certainly you are working for God at that time Please feel that everything you do is dedicated service In that way you will not feel that you are wasting your time If you feel that you are doing something because you have been asked to do it from within then you will have the greatest joy You are not the doer you are only a dedicated instrument serving a higher Reality If you can feel this then you will get joy no matter what you do Even if you are doing something mechanical or something that is absolutely uninspiring you will get the greatest joy because you are serving a higher cause If you wish to be constantly helped and guided by the Supreme please remind yourself of Him in the morning as soon as you get up Then think of the things that you do daily You do twenty thirty or forty things each day Before you do each thing you should try to remember the Supreme Just before you are about to eat think of the Supreme After you have spoken with someone and you are just about to speak with somebody else meditate for a minute And if you see that you do not have the time then try to meditate as soon as you are free Each time you change your activity meditate on the Supreme for just one minute Your meditation should be soulful and not mechanical You
