Birthday Message (2020)

Today November 15, on my birthday – I want to thank all my readers, followers and fellow travelers who have been following my sharing on this forum from last few years. People ask me “How you came to know about Quora and when did you started sharing and answering on Quora?”

I tell them “I don’t know – it just happened!

One afternoon – must be July or Aug 2018 – I accidentally came on Quora and then the ‘journey’ of sharing begin. Within 2 years – there has been so much of sharing and so many of my answers and posts have reached and touched readers and seekers from almost all corners of the world – that now and then I keep receiving their love that they express through the emails that they send. It is said that “Accidents” are beautiful – because accidents happen – and happen is a beautiful word – because what happens – just happens – there is no planning – no agenda – no expectations!

Love also ‘happens’! And so does awakening – and so does enlightenment! The most beautiful experiences of life are ‘Accidental’!

Passion matters – intensity matters and above all – a GOOD HEART matters!

Buddha is always in search of ‘seekers’ and not ‘believers’. Buddha says to his disciples “Don’t waste time in responding to believers – respond only to seekers.”

A believer just wants to believe – a seeker wants to self-experience by taking efforts.

Once – when Buddha asked his disciples “How long is life?” – nobody could answer. Buddha then reveals “Life is but a breath.” Life is momentary – life is neither in the past nor in the future – life is flowing NOW . Past is no more and Future is not yet. What you do NOW is what shapes your future. Focus on the Now moment and realize the fact that the real ‘difference’ is not by doing better than others – the real ‘difference’ you make is when you do better for others.

The purpose of life is simply to do better for someone – that someone can be anybody who deserves your help.

As long as we are alive – we should help those who deserve our help.

People ask me “How long you will be on Quora?”

I tell them “ I never planned to appear on Quora – it happened. Similarly someday I will disappear from Quora – that will also happen!”

Until then – the ‘journey’ continues….we all have to remember that “Nothing Lasts Forever” – neither the good times nor the bad times!

And so we just have to BE HERE NOW – and that is my message to all of you – on my birthday this is the only message – BE HERE NOW – learn to LIVE in the NOW moment – because past is no more and future is NOT yet! NOW is the only moment – LIFE is flowing NOW – if you are able to BE HERE NOW – only then you are LIVING – only then you are progressing – the ‘key’ to your real GROWTH is to BE HERE NOW.

Yoga is the science to Be Here and Now.

NOW is the only reality. The PRESENT MOMENT is the only TIME you have – meditation is to help you to bring your MIND in the present moment because the mind is either stuck in the PAST or is worried about the FUTURE! The moment MIND is fixed on the present moment – meditation starts happening.

Close your eyes – breath in and breath out – and bring your wavering mind to HERE & NOW – practice this daily – Rome was not build in one day – similarly your meditation will also take time – what is important is that you start meditating and then don’t give up until you prefect the art of meditation!

Silence is the language of the master. Only a meditative being can understand the language of silence – the language of Buddha!

Meditate every day – and as long as I remain on this forum – I will be sharing with you all – these gentle reminders. The last word of Buddha was SAMMASTI. SAMMASTI means REMEMBER – just remember to go back to your source – to look within – to turn inwards and discover yourself.

Let the ‘flower’ within you start blossoming – let there be a dance, a song – everything is possible when you start discovering yourself – when you start turning inward.

Meditate and once again my heartfelt gratitude to all my genuine close followers and readers – it is true that I sing my song because it brings pleasure to my heart – but one or two listeners adds more pleasure to this journey of sharing and caring!

Love and blessings to all my readers – may you all progress in your life – our ‘meeting’ on this forum is accidental – how long will I remain on this forum is not known but as long as the journey continues – who cares for the destination! 😊

Life is a ‘journey’ and NOT a destination. A good traveler (seeker) never cares for the destination – he is simply happy to keep walking…..

If you are also a ‘traveler’ (seeker) then join me – follow me as I continue on this wonderful ‘journey’ – the Journey with God.

Love to you all. Meditate every day.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
