What are the alternatives for Pearl gemstone because I am poor but I too want a solution that is not expensive but affordable?
The real PEARL is the NATURAL PEARL found deep inside the ocean – which is rare to find and its cost begins from minimum 10K per carat. A real good natural pearl of 3 carats costs minimum 50K.
Then there are HYBRID pearls which are produced with human intervention. Thailand, Malaysia, and many such island nations have large breeding centers where these pearls are produced – they are NOT natural and since they are produced by human beings – they are available in abundance and are damn cheap. You can get a 5 carat good quality hybrid natural in 10K.
Whereas the same NATURAL PEARL (MOTI) will cost minimum 50K for 5 carats – the best will cost 5 Lakhs!
So be careful when you are buying a natural pearl and I say this for the larger interest of all my followers and readers who may at some point in life – may want to buy a pearl!
But the larger question is what will a POOR MAN or POOR WOMAN will do?
Is ASTROLOGY is only for the RICH?
Are solutions only for those who have so much of MONEY?
Can’t a POOR also get equivalent SOLUTION?
God is only for the RICH and not for the POOR?
And the answer is – GOD is MORE with the POOR than the RICH!
Jesus moved mostly amongst the POOR! Jesus LOVED the POOR.
Jesus himself was a Poor Man. Jesus is a poor carpenter’s son; he knows what poverty is. And because of that poverty he speaks a totally different language than Buddha.
Jesus says “ Blessed are those who are POOR in SPIRIT – for theirs is the KINGDOM of HEAVEN.”
‘POOR IN SPIRIT’ is a reference to the SPIRITUAL POVERTY!
What is Spiritual Poverty?
If a beggar is EGOIST – then he is NOT spiritually poor.
If a KING is EGOLESS – then he is spiritually poor!
The Sufi Saints address this spiritual poverty as FAQR. When Jesus says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit.” HE is talking exactly about FAQR. It does not mean poverty, it means spiritual poverty.
And so it doesn’t really matter whether you have millions in your bank balance or you just have a few thousand in your bank balance.
What matters is that whether you are ‘spiritually poor’ – meaning humble, grounded, understanding, and meditative!
And so if you are spiritually poor – then Jesus says – the KINGDOM OF GOD awaits you!
Apart from buying an expensive pearl of thousands of rupees/dollars – the best remedy for those who are SPIRITUALLY POOR is – FASTING ON MONDAYS and DONATING FRESH COW’s MILK to those needy poor men and women who are poor but not spiritually poor!
MONEY is NOT the only SOLUTION.
BEING RICH is NOT the only SOLUTION.
BUYING EXPENSIVE GEMSTONES is NOT the only SOLUTION.
But who wants to listen? People want some fancy solutions – they think that only by SPENDING MONEY and buying precious gemstones the solution can be found – in fact it is NOT their fault – because they are made to believe by those who are yet to know themselves!
Still for the larger interest of my followers and readers, I thought to share my answer.
As long as this answer remains, it can help those insightful readers – who are or are trying to become ‘Spiritually Poor’!
‘Inner Poverty’ is needed. Buddha calls this state of poverty – NIRVANA. The Sufi address this state of poverty as FANA – FANA means a state of non-being – Nirvana!
Non-being is exactly the state of NOTHINGNESS – EMPTINESS WITHIN – that is what the master addresses as Spiritually poor!
And my fellows – this NOTHINGNESS – this EMPTINESS – this spiritually poor state is the state that comes through KETU!
Just a few days ago my new book “Why Ketu Can Heal” is published worldwide on Amazon- do read it when you all get some time!
See how all is connected – see how we finally arrived at the state of KETU – SHUNYA – the inside poverty – NO EGO – NO MIND!
It is only when you become ‘spiritually poor’ that you can scale up your receptivity. And the depth of receptivity is based on how close you have reached to the state of NO MIND (Ketu).
When your receptivity is at its peak – you will understand the answers that I share. You will then understand that MONEY is not always required to find SOLUTIONS or REMEDIES.
GOD is not cruel but KIND – very KIND. HE is for all those who are ‘spiritually poor’.
My answer and remedies is also for all those who are ‘spiritually poor’. Because I am God’s servant – or to put it in much better words – I am God’s fool.
Love to all my followers and readers. 🙏
Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
