The Vedas deal with rituals and worship, which imply a dualism between the worshipper and the object worshipped.
Pure and selfless love towards all living beings, considering everyone as embodiments of the Divine, with no expectation of reward, is true Love. One need not search for spiritual power, going around the world and spending a lot of money. God is the Antharyaami (Indweller), and so, when He is sought in the outer world He cannot be caught.
In this Kali Age, people have forgotten human values and exhibit animal qualities such as lust, anger, greed and hatred.
Man expects the New Year to confer on him and the world at large peace, happiness and prosperity.
He who considers himself free is free indeed, and he who considers himself bound remains bound.
Your primary concern must be to understand whether you are real or unreal or what in you is real and what is unreal.
With this attitude, when one regards divinity as present in all beings, he experiences true love. Assert that you are unconquerable and free, that you cannot be tempted or frightened in to wrong. Though you do not see the roots or know how deep inside the earth they are, you pour water round the trunk, so that it may reach them.
Cultivate them, give them fullest freedom to gush forth and fertilize all fields of activity, that is the real purpose of education.
Guru (spiritual preceptor) scatters darkness through light; he imparts wisdom which roots out our ignorance. One may study all the scriptures, perform all types of sacrifices, go on extensive pilgrimages, but it is not easy to control the senses and the mind, direct one's vision inward and maintain equanimity. But, you cannot easily detach yourself from activity; the mind clings to something or the other. Constantly think yourself as being eternal, unlimited, Consciousness-Bliss, and you will be free and happy. While being held under house arrest there, Paul received a visitor named Onesimus, whose name meant profitable or advantage. It is only when you have recognised the truth of your own being that you can recognise the world as illusory and your own self as the only reality. It is interpreted in different ways, but the real basis of the Adwaithik principle is Ekaatma Bhaava, the feeling that there is only one Atma pervading everywhere and none else.
Whatever be the vicissitudes one may face, whatever be the personal sorrows and privations one may undergo, true love will remain unaffected. So long as a trace of body consciousness persists in you, the search for God must continue.
So you must use your strength of body and mind, wealth and education with intelligence, in order to realize the power of the soul. The reason lies in the false emphasis we have laid on things of the material world, ignoring matters of the spirit. In ancient times, the sages and seers maintained purity in thought, truth in words and righteousness in deeds. Spirituality aims at enabling a person to manifest in all its fullness the divine cosmic consciousness (Chaitanya) that is present both within and outside oneself. Make it cling to God, let it perform all actions for God and leave the success or failure, the loss and the profit, the elation or the dejection, to God. So long as you trap yourself in body consciousness you are like a lion moping about in a musty cave. Recognize that similarly there is God as the very basis of Creation; pray to Him, and He will shower fruit.
This is tragic; it is like the man who died of thirst though he was standing knee-deep in the running stream. It means getting rid of onea€™s animal nature and developing the divine tendencies within one. One may try to harm you while another may try to do you a good turn; treat both situations with equanimity. Do not be under the delusion that God is residing somewhere and that you have to search for Him; God is within you. Everyday, when you take food, you are offering eatables to the Fire that God has put in you to digest food. They are bound by the qualities they have developed and they are still in need of the Form so that they may conceive of Reality. It means breaking down the barriers between God and Nature and establishing their essential oneness. In one business venture, you may incur a loss while in another you may make a profit; treat them both alike. When Onesimus ran away, he probably took with him money and goods which belonged to his master Philemon. David Crockett US Representative from TennesseeOriginally published in "The Life of Colonel David Crockett," by Edward Sylvester Ellis.One day in the House of Representatives a bill was taken up appropriating money for the benefit of a widow of a distinguished naval officer.
In the same manner, the Divine is immanent in the entire cosmos in a subtle form as Chaitanya (Consciousness).
One who aspires for the welfare of the world should see to it that his thoughts and actions are in accordance with his aspirations. I am all that is, was and will be.' Pettiness, ego, time and space - all will flee from your heart and you will realize your own Divinity. Though you find myriad bulbs glowing, the current that is passing through them is the same. Pray to the Parabrahma Principle (transcendental principle) or God within you to reveal Itself.


Only one who has such true love can be described as human, for, divine love is the basic quality of a true human being.
Speaker--I have as much respect for the memory of the deceased, and as much sympathy for the suffering of the living, if there be, as any man in this House, but we must not permit our respect for the dead or our sympathy for part of the living to lead us into an act of injustice to the balance of the living.
While the Divine is in such close proximity to him, man in his ignorance goes about seeking God outside himself.
I will not go into an argument to prove that Congress has not the power to appropriate this money as an act of charity. Some eloquent appeals have been made to us upon the ground that it is a debt due the deceased. Together, were strong enough to overcome the worst of the worst; Alone, we struggle to find meaning. Forgetting the supreme power of the Spirit, people rely on the powers of the body, the mind and the intellect.
We cannot without the grossest corruption, appropriate this money as the payment of a debt. Paul, however, honored the social tie that bound a slave to his master and respected the duty Onesimus owed to Philemon, his master. Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. Paul was about to send Tychicus, a co-worker, to Colosse with a letter Paul had written to the church there. Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon. I cannot vote for this bill, but I will give one week's pay to the object, and if every member of Congress will do the same, it will amount to more than the bill asks."He took his seat. Onesimus went willingly as a penitent Christian to seek his master's forgiveness and to return to his service in Philemon's household. Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf.
In spite of all that could be done, many houses were burned and many families made houseless, and besides, some of them had lost all but the clothes they had on.
Slaves, such as Onesimus, who were brought back to their masters were often treated most harshly and under Roman law could be killed.
The weather was very cold, and when I saw so many children suffering, I felt that something ought to be done for them.
Paul noted that Philemon was having Onesimus come back to him as more than a slave but as a brother in Christ and fellow believer. We put aside all other business and rushed it through as soon as it could be done."The next summer, when it began to be time to think about election, I concluded I would take a scout around among the boys of my district.
Since it was quite possible that Onesimus had wronged Philemon and was indebted to Philemon for what he had stolen, Paul even offered to have Philemon charge the debt to him so that Paul might repay him. I had no opposition there but, as the election was some time off, I did not know what might turn up. In offering to repay Philemon for Onesimus' indebtedness, Paul reminded Philemon that he owed him his very life, for it appears that in some way as a result of Paul's gospel ministry Philemon had become a believer in Christ the Savior. When riding one day in a part of my district in which I was more of a stranger than any other, I saw a man in a field plowing and coming toward the road. In the course of his letter Paul hinted that he would very much like to have Onesimus back with him in Rome. I do not see how it can be mended, but you gave a vote last winter which shows that either you have not capacity to understand the Constitution, or that you are wanting in the honesty and firmness to be guided by it.
The man who wields power and misinterprets it is the more dangerous the honest he is.'" 'I admit the truth of all you say, but there must be some mistake. Though I live in the backwoods and seldom go from home, I take the papers from Washington and read very carefully all the proceedings of Congress. My papers say you voted for a bill to appropriate $20,000 to some sufferers by fire in Georgetown. An automobile may be filled with enough fuel to drive a long distance, but it wona€™tA go anywhere until someone puts the key into the ignition and then turns the key.
In the first place, the government ought to have in the Treasury no more than enough for its legitimate purposes.
The power of collecting and disbursing money at pleasure is the most dangerous power that can be entrusted to man, particularly under our system of collecting revenue by a tariff, which reaches every man in the country, no matter how poor he may be, and the poorer he is the more he pays in proportion to his means.What is worse, it presses upon him without his knowledge where the weight centers, for there is not a man in the United States who can ever guess how much he pays to the government. So you see, that while you are contributing to relieve one, you are drawing it from thousands who are even worse off than he. You will very easily perceive what a wide door this would open for fraud and corruption and favoritism, on the one hand, and for robbing the people on the other.
If twice as many houses had been burned in this country as in Georgetown, neither you nor any other member of Congress would have Thought of appropriating a dollar for our relief.
Even though Goda€™s Word says I have a sound mind, I continually feelA like I dona€™t have control of my thought life. If they had shown their sympathy for the sufferers by contributing each one week's pay, it would have made over $13,000.
And in spite of the fact the Bible says God has blessedA me with gifts and talents, I feel like a dope who has nothing to offer to this world. The people have delegated to Congress, by the Constitution, the power to do certain things. But for that potential in you to be released, you have to hold the right key in yourA hand.A Furthermore, it isna€™t enough for you to just possess the key. You have to put that key into theA a€?ignitiona€? and turn it so the latent potential that resides inside you will be ignited. Everything beyond this is usurpation, and a violation of the Constitution.'"'So you see, Colonel, you have violated the Constitution in what I consider a vital point.
It is a precedent fraught with danger to the country, for when Congress once begins to stretch its power beyond the limits of the Constitution, there is no limit to it, and no security for the people.


I have no doubt you acted honestly, but that does not make it any better, except as far as you are personally concerned, and you see that I cannot vote for you.'"I tell you I felt streaked. This is a person so sure of his information that when he speaks, he does so with confidence and boldness. I saw if I should have opposition, and this man should go to talking and in that district I was a gone fawn-skin.
I could not answer him, and the fact is, I was so fully convinced that he was right, I did not want to. But I must satisfy him, and I said to him:"Well, my friend, you hit the nail upon the head when you said I had not sense enough to understand the Constitution. I have heard many speeches in Congress about the powers of Congress, but what you have said here at your plow has got more hard, sound sense in it than all the fine speeches I ever heard. Get up a barbecue, and I will pay for it.'"No, Colonel, we are not rich people in this section but we have plenty of provisions to contribute for a barbecue, and some to spare for those who have none. You should study, read, listen to teaching material a€” inA other words, you should use every available resource to discover what Goda€™s Word says youa€™ve beenA given in Jesus Christ.
Come to my house on Friday, and we will go together, and I promise you a very respectable crowd to see and hear you."'Well I will be here.
The moment you open your mouth and start confessing the good things that are in you by Jesus Christ, a supernatural connection is made between your faith and allA that Jesus has deposited inside you. I am glad I have met you, and very proud that I may hope to have you for my friend.'"It was one of the luckiest hits of my life that I met him. At that moment, the gifts and treasures God has placed insideA you become supernaturally activated. He mingled but little with the public, but was widely known for his remarkable intelligence, and for a heart brim-full and running over with kindness and benevolence, which showed themselves not only in words but in acts. He was the oracle of the whole country around him, and his fame had extended far beyond the circle of his immediate acquaintance.
Instead of speaking what God says about them, they ridicule themselves, put themselves down, and speak badly of themselves.
Though I had never met him, before, I had heard much of him, and but for this meeting it is very likely I should have had opposition, and had been beaten. The next morning we went to the barbecue and, to my surprise, found about a thousand men there. By acknowledging the basic truths of what you have been given in Jesus, you will release so much divine energy that it will radically transform your life. I met a good many whom I had not known before, and they and my friend introduced me around until I had got pretty well acquainted - at least, they all knew me."In due time notice was given that I would speak to them. When I hear my own words, even I can tell ita€™s wrong for me to speak so lowly about myself. I opened my speech by saying:"Fellow-citizens - I present myself before you today feeling like a new man. My eyes have lately been opened to truths which ignorance or prejudice or both, had heretofore hidden from my view. Forgive me for speaking so wrongly and for allowing myself to remain imprisoned in self-defeat.
I feel that I can today offer you the ability to render you more valuable service than I have ever been able to render before. I am truly repentant for theseactions, and I ask You to forgive me and to give me the power to change my behavior. Whether you will vote for me is a matter for your consideration only.""I went on to tell them about the fire and my vote for the appropriation and then told them why I was satisfied it was wrong.
I agree with all that Goda€™s Word declares me to be, and I speak these truths about myself. I closed by saying:"And now, fellow-citizens, it remains only for me to tell you that the most of the speech you have listened to with so much interest was simply a repetition of the arguments by which your neighbor, Mr.
Every dayA Iam getting more positive and more faith-filled, and my mouth is speaking what God says about me. Bunce, convinced me of my error."It is the best speech I ever made in my life, but he is entitled to the credit for it. Do you speak well of yourself, or do you find that you constantly criticize yourself and continually point out all your flaws? If you were to ask your friends what they hear you saying about yourself, would they say you speak positively or negatively?A 2. And I tell you now that the remembrance of those few words spoken by such a man, and the honest, hearty shout they produced, is worth more to me than all the honors I have received and all the reputation I have ever made, or ever shall make, as a member of Congress.'"Now, sir," concluded Crockett, "you know why I made that speech yesterday. There are in that House many very wealthy men - men who think nothing of spending a week's pay, or a dozen of them, for a dinner or a wine party when they have something to accomplish by it.
What changes do you need to make in your life in order to change your confessions about yourself?
Some of those same men made beautiful speeches upon the great debt of gratitude which the country owed the deceased--a debt which could not be paid by money--and the insignificance and worthlessness of money, particularly so insignificant a sum as $20,000 when weighed against the honor of the nation. Guided by the tenth commandment, which forbids coveting another man's worker, and by the law of love, Paul decided Onesimus should return to Philemon. Tychicus' traveling to Colosse offered Paul the opportunity to send Onesimus with Tychicus to Philemon.
Rather, Paul commended Philemon for the loving compassion he showed to his fellow Christians and then interceded in Onesimus' behalf.
