Hverdagsfilosofi

Self realization: The development of stable state of mind by developing a connection with inner peace and contentment, bringing focus back to self, observing situations in life in a detached way and creating harmony around by moving our focus from controlling others to accepting others. 


What a brilliant message. Consider this world as a drama. In this drama, I am just playing a role based on a script. Others have their own scripts and are playing their roles.

Who am I?

Soul/ Body

Am I a soul?  Am I a body?

Journey of a soul:

Every soul is true, pure, kind, lovable, humble, peaceful and contented.

Journey of a body: Birth, Youth, Old, Death.

Look at a child when born is so contented, so peaceful. Child has no understanding of any relations.

Relationships of souls: Soul is related to all souls and all are related to one Supreme soul.

"There is only the One Giver of all beings. He blends our light with His Light", - Guru Granth Sahib ji, page 68


Relationship of body: As we grow our mind and our body establishes relationships: father, mother, husband, son, daughter, colleagues, titles.

Problem: Conflicts in these relationships? Attachments? Ego? Anger? Pride? Control?

Example: Situation:  Person one gets angry on person two without any reason.

Choices for Person two:

       1.  How come I receive bad behavior when I have always been nice to Person 1.

       2. Person two gives back anger and bad words.

       3. Tries to concentrate on something else. For example music, game, training to gain time to find a solution and get back

       4. Remains calm. Give kindness back.

Analysis of Situation:

      1.  Here the focus is me. U get hurt and feel pain inside u. U need to work this out with your own self.

      2. Conflict. Anger is sign of weakness. If u reply back in anger this means u r weak at the present period of time. U need to work it out with your own self.                     

    Problem still is there. Its going to pull up the ugly face again.

      4. U r strong inside. U know u have not done anything. The problem is situation and maybe other person is going through bad period. Focus is other person who is weak(because of anger) and needs your help. Here the focus is to give... inspiration comes from One Supreme being, the Great giver who is giving without limit.. through nature, fruits on trees, air to breathe, water, sun .

Solution:

- 1-3 Focus is on me and wants control over the situation.

- What is needed is to accept is that we don't have control over all problems and situations. Problems and situations are always going to exist. What we have control over is how we deal with them. With what     attitude? Do we want to give to the world (which is the nature of our soul) or do we want to take?

- Incase we can keep focus to give to the world we can be at ease. The moment we want to take from the world, the problems become bigger for us.

We need to accept that problems exist and we can't control. What we can control is how we react to situations.

Control to acceptance:

We need to strengthen the control on ourselves and accept the fact that we can't control others whether they are  situations, problems or persons.

"Hukamee andhar sab ko bahar hukum na koye", - Guru Granth Sahib ji

"Everything is contained within Divine will: from the physical structure of the Universe, to the social and moral order that governs humans, to the quantum world"

In the end of the day, we need to evaluate our actions, seeing them detached from body, as an observer, as if we r seeing some film and look into our own self interacting with others. Try to analyze our own self - how and what can we do to work the things better?

"One who knows God, within the self and beyond, remains detached, and brings his wandering mind back to its home", Guru Granth Sahib ji, page 1042.

In the end of the day we need to clean ourselves, generate pure thoughts, act on pure thoughts to generate pure deeds. We need to feed of the soul with good deeds.

"In the first watch of the night, O my merchant friend, the Lord placed your soul in the womb. In the tenth month, you were made into a human being, O my merchant friend, and you were given your allotted time to perform good deeds. You were given this time to perform gooddeeds, according to your pre-ordained destiny. God placed you with your mother, father, brothers, sons and wife. God Himself is the Cause of causes, good and bad.no one has control over these things. Says Nanak, O mortal, in the first watch of the night, the soul is placed in the womb", Guru Granth Sahib ji, page 77.
