You and the Little Candle - A Story of your divine journey

It is dark everywhere. There is a little candle in your hand. Your hands are shaking.

I know, the candle does not light your entire path, but it is sufficient enough to see the things around your feet. You will see snakes, raccoons, wolves, critters, worms and caterpillars all around you.....and there are few beautiful flowers and plants too....and if you see carefully, there is a dog walking with you.

Be vigilant and careful at every step. As long as you don't step on the snakes they will not bite you. The snakes will hiss at you, they will scare you, but hold that candle tight. Nothing can hurt you as long as you carry the candle....and don't waste your time in plucking the flowers. They are there to divert your attention, to make you fall in the trap...again and again...to keep you in the snake pit for ever!

...and there will be few storms on the way. It will appear that the candle is going to be blown away soon. But don't let that happen. Complain and scream as much as you want Smiley Face, but NEVER DROP the candle, because this candle is the only source that will save you eventually.

Divine light will protect you in the storms

Keep walking. As you walk more you will see a little light far away. It is a small hut. You may feel this is just a coincidence. No it is not! This is an arrangement made for you. That is your first destination. There is no one in that hut...but there is food for you, to provide enough energy to reach to the next destination. It is time for you to rest some, enjoy the light and start walking again....alone....and in the dark!

The snakes are still there, but they are less aggressive now. And there are more flowers around....but don't touch them anyway, let them not deceive you. And as you walk more, you will see the cover of darkness is slowly melting. Your companion, the dog, is still there with you.

Now the snakes have become harmless, and as you progress more you will realize they were not even the snakes and the raccoons, but they were just the ropes and rocks scattered all over. You thought they were snakes and raccoons only because it was dark. Now you are smiling.

...and you keep walking. Now there are a clear signs of the dawn. Early morning rays are breaking out of the sky. There is no need for the candle anymore because there is enough light everywhere you can see. You can clearly see the path and the destination that is still far away. You don't have that anxiety, nor the fear.

Now you know, the dog was your companion that was protecting you all along. He never expected anything from you. His only job was to serve his master and remove your fear.

Look at you! Now you are a divine deer. One that is away from the heard, whose eyes are fixed on the goal and it is peaceful and blissful. The deer is enjoying every bit of his journey because he sees everything as beautiful. There is no fear in his eyes because he knows he is protected by the divine grace.

The snakes of passion, attachment, fear, anxiety, desire and emotion have left him long time back. Darkness of Maya (illusion of the world's existence) has turned into a beautiful rainbow of the divine light. The entire universe is beautiful and blissful for You!!!

Divine rainbow God's bliss

Keep walking, With the dog, With grace and with gratitude. Still there is a long distance for you to travel! Don't worry, the dog will take you there. It is his job, assigned by the master. It is an enjoyable journey here on....an effortless journey henceforth!!!

It is an ocean of Bliss...with waves of bliss Everywhere...as far as you can see!!! - (For those that know Marathi - "Anandache Dohi Ananda Tarang")

So far you were seeking the God! Now, God is seeking you!!!

Be a Divine Deer, to Enjoy the Bliss!

"Asato ma sadgamaya, Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya, Mrtyorma amrtam gamaya" - (Brhadaranyaka Upanishad)

God, Lead me from the Asat to the Sat, Lead me from darkness to light, Lead me from death to immortality.

Yoga is an exact science. It aims at the harmonious development of body, mind and soul. Everyone should follow one Yoga as their primary Yoga (based on their character). Then we must combine Karma Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Raja Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Gyan Yoga. This “Yoga Synthesis” will lead one to the God.
