Ã¢Â€Â˜MasterÃ¢Â€Â™ is an individual who comprehends not only hisÃ‚Â own Ã‚Â fundamental nature, but also the fine essence of allÃ‚Â energies that surround him. He knows his true purposeÃ‚Â in life; and can also help others to understand andÃ‚Â achieve their potential !
A lot of people live without knowing what life truly is. AtÃ‚Â times one feels dejected with unfulfilled or underÃ‚Â achieved desires. Many even lose hope. NonÃ‚Â harmonious relationships break up families all the time.
Most available aids have not helped man in adequateÃ‚Â study of his own self. Modern technology is inadequateÃ‚Â in curing various diseases.
There are a few elemental questions that everyone needs to ask Ã‚Â oneself. The truth behind where we come from,Ã‚Â the mystery of birth, death, human misery and theirÃ‚Â permanent solution, if any, have to be sought in earnest.Ã‚Â Unless a person is bent upon finding the truth aboutÃ‚Â human existence or the facts that govern humanÃ‚Â subsistence, human relationships or human eventÃ‚Â formations, he is going to drift through his life aimlessly. He is going to grow without knowing what growing upÃ‚Â is. He will go into Ã¢Â€Â˜samsaraÃ¢Â€Â™ or Ã¢Â€Â˜family lifeÃ¢Â€Â™, withoutÃ‚Â knowing what the value of family life is. He will dieÃ‚Â without knowing what death is. He will reap failures inÃ‚Â personal life without knowing what the causes are. LifeÃ‚Â is not full of awareness for a normal, average personÃ‚Â who does not ask the basic questions. When we poseÃ‚Â searching questions to ourselves, we will find all answers.
We owe it to ourselves to be the best we can be. The goalÃ‚Â of human life should be constant growth under allÃ‚Â circumstances Ã¢Â€Â“ in the best possible way. This requiresÃ‚Â sustained effort and willingness to choose the path thatÃ‚Â leads to an expansion of consciousness. For example ifÃ‚Â one is a graduate, for further growth, he must aim for
Ã¢Â€Â˜Post GraduationÃ¢Â€Â™. A Ã¢Â€Â˜MasterÃ¢Â€Â™ is a person dedicated to theÃ‚Â path of self improvement.
We are born on Earth to pursue spirituality and becomeÃ‚Â Ã¢Â€Â˜MastersÃ¢Â€Â™. Our purpose is not to suffer or languish asÃ‚Â half-baked individuals. The purpose of each and everyÃ‚Â person born on this Earth is to regale himself/herselfÃ‚Â with the highest possible Enjoyment, Entertainment and Enlightenment.
So, irrespective of profession or position, we can all beÃ‚Â happy only if we are Spiritual Masters. Whether we areÃ‚Â an engineer, a legislator, a businessman, a teacher, aÃ‚Â student, a clerk, a bus-driver, or even a housewifeÃ¢Â€Â¦ weÃ‚Â can all grow in Spirituality. My purpose is to shakeÃ‚Â every person, awaken everyone, into thinking ofÃ‚Â Mastery, into setting up the personal goal ofÃ‚Â becoming a Master.
The first step to becoming a Master is to aim for it. It isÃ‚Â good to begin early in our lives when flexibility of bothÃ‚Â body and mind is on our side. Age is of littleÃ‚Â consequence. Some hear about Mastery in their earlyÃ‚Â childhood itself and achieve it.
We can all become Masters by taking to meditation. OurÃ‚Â Reality has two aspects. The known- Smaller Reality andÃ‚Â the unknown- Greater Reality. The known SmallerÃ‚Â Reality is like a pin-head and the unknown GreaterÃ‚Â Reality is like a big mountain. We delude ourselves asÃ‚Â vincible and dwell in ignorance; we think we areÃ‚Â incapable of doing things and have small potential.Ã‚Â Reality is something else.
This realization dawns with meditation. We have toÃ‚Â become Masters of our mind with the ability to still ourÃ‚Â mind whenever we want. In that stillness of mind, ourÃ‚Â inner senses get activated and the inner senses begin toÃ‚Â throw light on our own invisible Ã¢Â€Â˜Greater RealityÃ¢Â€Â™ alongÃ‚Â with the Ã¢Â€Â˜Cosmic Invisible RealityÃ¢Â€Â™. It is then that weÃ‚Â understand the grand structure of the Cosmos and ourÃ‚Â very own Grand Self. Death of the Puny-Personality-Ã‚Â Self follows. This knowledge of our own Grand Self,Ã‚Â our Universal and Cosmic Self comes only throughÃ‚Â meditation, enlightenment and hearing othersÃ¢Â€Â™ lifeÃ‚Â experiences.
Once we know about our Cosmic Self, we understandÃ‚Â that we are everybody and everybody is our self. There isÃ‚Â no separation. There is no Ã¢Â€Â˜otherÃ¢Â€Â™. We exist everywhereÃ‚Â as everything, and as everybody. Then begins health,Ã‚Â longevity and immortality. Realization of our ownÃ‚Â Cosmic Self is the target of a would-be Master. For this,Ã‚Â out of twenty four hours, we have to earmark an hourÃ‚Â for Meditation, an hour for reading the right books, andÃ‚Â one hour for spending time with co-meditators, coseekersÃ‚Â and masters. This is an on-going process. ThisÃ‚Â process of becoming a Master begins, but neverÃ‚Â ends. We should never be Ã¢Â€Â˜devoteesÃ¢Â€Â™ of anyone orÃ‚Â Ã¢Â€Â˜disciplesÃ¢Â€Â™ of anybody. Our aspiration should be toÃ‚Â become Masters ourselves.
Apart from doing meditation, reading right books andÃ‚Â seeking right company Ã¢Â€Â˜sajjana sangatyaÃ¢Â€Â™, we have to doÃ‚Â many more things. People who have set their goal to Ã¢Â€ÂœBeÃ‚Â a Master Ã¢Â€Â, need to take the famous Ã¢Â€Â˜middle pathÃ¢Â€Â™ ofÃ‚Â Buddha. It entails fostering of minimum basic needsÃ‚Â and avoidance of unnecessary desires. One needs toÃ‚Â cease thinking carelessly or casually. One also needs toÃ‚Â stop talking and listening to others indifferently. OnlyÃ‚Â then we would have sufficient time and energy on ourÃ‚Â hands, to spare for our efforts in becoming Masters.Ã‚Â Many people have become Masters through the efforts of the Pyramid Spiritual Societies Movement.
Becoming a Ã¢Â€Â˜MasterÃ¢Â€Â™ is certainly a time taking processÃ‚Â but it is also a very worthy one. Only you can be yourÃ‚Â friend. Only you can be your foe. Only you can helpÃ‚Â yourself. It all happens through practice of meditation;Ã‚Â by reading books; and through constant sajjana sangatya.Ã‚Â Intensive introspection leads us to realize that othersÃ‚Â cannot really help; it is all our own personal effort andÃ‚Â responsibility. Jesus Christ said Ã¢Â€ÂœSeek ye the KingdomÃ‚Â of God. Then, all else will be added unto youÃ¢Â€Â. It is allÃ‚Â within. We have to close our eyes and have to observe theÃ‚Â breathing that connects life and death, mortality andÃ‚Â immortality. One has to do the relevant Ã¢Â€Â˜sadhanaÃ¢Â€Â™ toÃ‚Â become a Master i.e., to open and activate oneÃ¢Â€Â™s ownÃ¢Â€ÂœThird Eye,Ã¢Â€Â.
Once we become a Master, life becomes continuous joyÃ‚Â and celebration. All ill-health disappears. We become aÃ‚Â natural leader of among the people. We are everybodyÃ¢Â€Â™sÃ‚Â friend. We become more efficient in whatever we takeÃ‚Â up. We achieve whatever we seek.
We should encourage all children to become Masters. WeÃ‚Â should not dismiss them as Ã¢Â€Â˜kidsÃ¢Â€Â™. They have taken manyÃ‚Â births before. An advanced soul could be in a childÃ¢Â€Â™sÃ‚Â body. We have to treat them as Masters and talk to themÃ‚Â of Mastery. We can talk of Mastery even to old people.Ã‚Â Nothing is impossible for mankind. Neither childhoodÃ‚Â nor old age is a barrier; nor the lack of education anyÃ‚Â hindrance. Every person should be encouraged toÃ‚Â become a Master.
Once we become a Master, we end the chain of BirthsÃ‚Â and Deaths. We donÃ¢Â€Â™t have to be born again. We mayÃ‚Â come to earth now and then to teach others, or just to beÃ‚Â an example, but our particular course on Earth is over.Ã‚Â We get promoted to Higher Worlds. We begin to createÃ‚Â our own under-selves. We may even create new worlds,
new planets, newer galaxies depending on our Personal
Unless we live like a Master we cannot die like a Master.Ã‚Â Unless we die like a Master we cannot break this chain ofÃ‚Â Reincarnation. So we keep coming back until weÃ‚Â become a Master. We have to be born again. We have toÃ‚Â die again, any number of times.
If one doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t pay attention to Ã¢Â€ÂœBe A MasterÃ¢Â€Â thatÃ¢Â€Â™s hisÃ‚Â own choice. One would have to bear the consequenceÃ‚Â and be born again and again. The two routes are crystalÃ‚Â clear. One can either postpone spirituality and comeÃ‚Â back repeatedly, or take up spirituality and make theÃ‚Â current lifetime the final one. If we choose to be aÃ‚Â disciple or a devotee, we have to come back yet again.Ã‚Â But if we choose to be a Master, this cycle wouldÃ‚Â conclude.
So, be a Master who is a pleasure to see, hear and be with.Ã‚Â Endeavor to be a Master who is one with everybody andÃ‚Â with whom everybody is one !
