EFFORTS IN SPIRTUALITY
EFFORTS IN SPIRTUALITY:
They say, “It needs endeavors for acknowledgment of GOD, however no one has accomplished HIM with Efforts.”
Entirely conflicting proclamation I assume.
Everything we need is trained endeavors & sadhna to stroll on the way of GOD Realization. Sadhna is impossible without a control, we need to rise at a young hour in the morning, for that rest at perfect time, eat at ideal time and afterward need to do japa and be in recognition of GOD ever.
Yet, would we be able to achieve GOD with Disciplined sadhna? NO.
On the off chance that we take a gander at history Mahatma Buddha did all the sadhnas and endeavors to achieve GOD whatever was accessible around then, however did not accomplish GOD. He went to all SIDH-Purkha those were available in world around then, every one of them that Buddha was so flawless at everything, nothing is left which can be taught to him. At last he thought there is NO SUCH THING as GOD, and He squandered all his time. He halted every one of the endeavors, alongside this his feeling of “I am doing push to achieve GOD” vanished, He turned out to be free from Sense of “Iness” and that was the minute when he accomplished GOD. Same thing happened to Osho also.
Baba Farid did tapas for long time, however such Tapas gave him ridhi-sidhi & conscience, But NO GOD. Baba Farid ji did endeavors all His Life & achieved God at 96 years old, just when He was free from his mentality of “I DO”.
Bhagat Dhanna ji got to be proud when He understood GOD inside of 2-3 days, he was supposing it was so natural to achieve God. God thought to show him a lesson and indicated Dhannaji a lesson by demonstrating all His past lives when he did parcel of sadhna by remaining so as to remain on one leg, hungry for a considerable length of time in every one of His lives. Be that as it may, in the life when Dhannaji acknowledged GOD, it was exertion of only 2-3 days, yet his endeavors in past conception continue including.
So on the off chance that I say I can understand God with “My endeavors”, NO, I need God’s Grace for this.
On the off chance that God is not understood by EFFORTS, then why do the Efforts?
We need to do the endeavors to understand the FUTILITY of Efforts, I am not saying KNOW the Futility of Efforts, But rather Realize THE FUTILITY.
Acknowledgment should be possible just when we do something.
SO how about we DO endeavors to accomplish HIM, surrender everything at HIS feet and hold up when HE discovers we are deserving of HIS GRACE.
Such Efforts can be “Attentive Silence” or A “Noiseless Prayer” or “Generic Presence” at HIS feet.
Any supplication to God which we do with a goal to draw near to BABA, will never go Futile. We make one stride towards HIM and He makes 1000 strides towards us.
Baba Ji, please favor all of us Ignorant creatures, Please Be with us, Please make us deserving of your beauty.
