I came across this article written by my revered Guru and wanted to share with the world.
“What is the sign of a healthy person? Such a person is happy anywhere. He or she is relaxed everywhere- always at ease and in peace, within and without. Even in hell, such a person will be at ease. A healthy person hates no one, dislikes nothing. Total love, universal love emanates from within. There is no tension anywhere, no stress or friction. These are the signs of real health.”
” A person who is healthy doesn’t hurt anyone. He or she is not afraid of anyone. Not only is he unafraid, but he sees that others are not afraid of him. The “others” include plants, animals, everything. A healthy person emits always and only a loving and pure vibration.”
” A really healthy person takes everything in life as a game. Whether we win or lose, it’s still a game. Often people forget that. In a way,I feel that losing is a better game. Why? If you lose, you allow the other person to win. When the other person wins, what do you see? A winning face. There is great joy in losing and making the other person win and have a happy face. Who will be the happiest person? The person who brings happiness to others. That means our minds should be well balanced under all conditions. That is yoga”
Swami Satchidinanda reminds me of my purpose here on earth. All of us have the purpose to serve. I love it when I call my ashram and they answer the phone, “How can I serve you?” It is very humbling and puts my needs ahead of their own.
I think we can all learn something from Guru’s words. If we make this life about others, we take life lightly as a game, we can probably reach that inner peace we are searching for. I hope to. And in that hope, I plan to spend the rest of my life serving. What do you plan to do?
In love and light
