Hard work is a myth

Last Friday I conducted an online enlightened parenting session for a group of parents and teachers from Hong Kong, Macau, India and USA on the topic ‘Hard work is a myth’. This truth was based on the revelation by a living incarnation, Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam (fondly known as Swamiji) when he expounded on science of unclutching.

He said: “All our idea that we are doing hard work is a pure myth because of clutching. Hard work means you do a simple work if you plan psychological 10 times, worry if it will happen or not 10 times and brag about it another 10 times – that is your so-called hardword!  As of now, you waste 90% of your energy in psychology worry.   When your ego is hurt, you try to defend your philosophy. You feel you are important, that’s why you feel you are doing hard work. In the initial level, you have to convince your boss that you are doing hard work. By and by, you convince yourself that you are doing hard work. That is the ultimate myth. Keeping quiet is tamas (laziness), doing hard work is rajas (restlessness), doing smart work is sattva (pure intelligence). That is the first clarity you need to have. We do not do anything for anybody, not only for others even for us. If you have intelligence to look in and learn how to unclutch for just ten days, you will see the amount of energy and expressing through you, you will be a new being in ten days. Just unclutch from the attachment to the outcome, you will not work hard, you will work smart.”

Genesis of Creation

I have always been curious about the genesis of the whole Universe. A few days ago, I was reading the book “Siddhas – the Masters of Basics” by Pal Pandian and it gave me such a big click about the whole genesis of creation that I decided to share it here.

According to the Siddhas, it says that Sivam or Brahmam is pure consciousness and can be defined as the boundless plenum into which the universe is born, grows and dies, and as the continuum of experience that pervades, sustains and vitalises all Existence!

How did the world come to be?

From the Source is derived an altered state, from which is derived another, and yet another and again and so on….until the process of evolution comes to rest at the point where no more creation or evolution is needed – from here on, there is only manifestation! This is so because the state evolution has reached is the state of a perfect cosmic unrest, a state that allows unlimited manifestation of form.

Create Space for Sattva, Inner Balance

 

From the Vedic traditions, the ancient mystics, seers and rishis discovered that there are 3 gunas (qualities or zones) of being that are constantly playing in our life.

The first is Tamas which is the state of fewer–thoughts-fewer-actions, i.e. the state of dullness or inertness. The second state is more-thoughts-more-actions, the state of restlessness or hyperactivity which is called Rajas.  The final guna is the fewer-thoughts-more-actions i.e. the state of inner balance, restful awareness and a feeling of being “alive” which is called Sattva.

In an ideal flow of  day of a typical human being, we should experience Sattva in the morning, Rajas in the afternoon and Tamas in the evening before we rest our body-mind into deep sleep. However, if you look at our modern civilization in the digital age, you see a disturbing picture because the state of Sattva is very lacking in our city life.
