Constantly keeping your seeking alive makes you grasp the Truth, you will not try to grab them. Understand, for example you see somebody melting down, overflowing, with that melting devotion offers a Bilva leaf to Mahadeva and he is liberated. You see that and then you also decide, Yes, if I pluck that tree, leaf and put it on this statue I will have liberation. That is what is grabbing the Truth. Understand, you are not grasping it, you are grabbing it. You only see the action.
You don't see the context. So you see everyone sitting in that Padmasana (lotus) posture and chanting, "AUUUMMM" and all the Rishis are enlightened. Immediately you also think, let me sit and do "Ahhhhhhhh". That is only grabbing the Truth, not grasping. Grasping means understanding the context. All the problems everyone faces in the life is trying to grasp, not ...sorry, trying to grab not to grasp. If you try to grasp the Truth, you will have the approach of Love towards the Truth. Don't have the approach of result towards the Truth.
"Alright, this is what I want. You want to say that I will have sit to chant "AUM", Ok I will do. How many hours I have to do?" It is not a bank account. Twenty thousand times you chant—Shiva, Shiva—and put it in the bank account and Mahadeva has to appear and give you, what you want. No, most of the time you try to only grab. You are asking give the set of rules, standard instructions, give. I will do that. If I can't what should I do, give the plan B, plan C.
... Understand, approaching God, Guru, Life, yourself, everything with tremendous love and patience to know the context, to grasp the Truth about it, is Seeking. youtu.be/HuKiN6mgVJg

LEGEND OF GANESH
Ganesha is the elephant-faced god of Vedic tradition. He is the son of Devi Parvati and Lord Shiva. Once Devi Parvati – the Cosmic Mother - decided to have a personal bodyguard for Her. She made a ball of sandal paste and did the PranaPratishtha – installation of life energy to it. Immediately the ball became a small boy and He was named Ganesha.
Once Lord Ganesha was safeguarding the entrance of the chamber where Devi was taking her bath.At that time Shiva wanted to immediately meet Her. But Ganesha stopped Shiva from entering the chamber. Shiva got angry and immediately chopped the head of Ganesha.
Devi came out and got angry seeing Her son’s head chopped off. She urged Shiva to give back life to Ganesha. Shiva then sent Vishnu – the god of sustenance to find a suitable head for Ganesha. Vishnu gave Enlightenment to a white elephant and released it from its body. He brought the head of that elephant and Shiva – the Mrityunjaya – the conqueror of death, fixed that elephant’s head on Ganesha’s body and gave life to Him.
Shiva blessed Ganesha that the latter shall be worshipped in the beginning of any new venture for destroying all obstacles and He would be referred to as the God of success.
Mystical expalantions about Ganesha:
In the school of Yoga, Muladhara chakra – the energy center in the root of the spine is the seat of Kundalini energy – the extraordinary potential energy in all human beings through awakening which human beings experience success, mystical powers, leadership qualities, health, and above all Enlightening consciousness. The personification of this Muladhara energy is Lord Ganesha. The Agamas and Tantra shastras explain Lord Ganesha to be the Lord of Muladhara chakra – the seat of Kundalini.
Master again and again represents the ideal that You are God! Please understand, I am again telling you. I am not here to prove I am God, I am here to prove You are God. Again and again
He stands for the ideal “You are Infinite.” There are so many dimensions in your being, which you have not yet explored, which you have not yet experienced. Again and again he is showing so many dimensions of your being to yourself!
Master stands for your multi dimensional being. He again and again shows, it’s possible for you. When it’s possible for me, why not for you? But as long as you believe your senses, you can be sure you are body or mind.
Only when you trust the Master more than your senses, you will realize – Master’s words are true, more than your senses. Then you will experience the truth of the Master’s words. Then when Master says, you are God. Then suddenly you will realize yes! Its truth. All these days my body and mind; my senses were telling me I am the body and the mind. As long as you believe your senses, you will believe only their ideas. The moment you start believing the Master, more than your senses, you will realize the truth which Master explained.
Swami NIthyananda Ji
KRSNA again and again tells this to Arjuna, ‘Don’t think that just because I am in the body, I am your friend. Don’t think that I am the person who was sitting in Briṇdāvan (the forest place where Kṛṣṇa spent his infant years), who is your own friend. I am the energy that takes care of the whole world. I have come down in this form to liberate all of you. So only fools deride Me, fools miss Me. Don’t miss, Arjuna, understand the Ultimate nature of Me and liberate yourself.’ In these verses, Kṛṣṇa tells some interesting truths. These were true during His time and they are true today. When an Incarnation lives in his body, people do not accept him, people ignore him, and some even abuse him. People stay away from the living Master. However, when the Master is no longer in the body, people visit his final resting place, offer flowers, and do all kinds of things. This has happened to all enlightened Masters. Rāmakṛṣṇa was considered a mad priest. When Rāmakṛṣṇa entered into an ecstatic mood, people said that he was acting. However now, if you go to Kolkata, Dakśineśvar has become a pilgrimage center. People worship Rāmakṛṣṇa; they keep his photo in their home, in their wallets. They call him an Incarnation, God. You see, over time nothing has changed. When I am in the ashram in Bidadi, many people come with speculation. They have questions about what I say, what I wear and everything I do. They say, ‘You're so young. How can you be enlightened?’ Some say, ‘If you're enlightened, why do you wear a golden rudrākṣa necklace? Why do you charge money for courses?’ These same people will come to my final resting place after one hundred years and offer flowers on it. They will accept me as their guru when I am not in human form.Kṛṣṇa says, ‘Fools lose Me when I come in human form—avajānanti māṁ ṁūḍhā mānuṣiṁ tanum āśritam (9.11).’ He calls them fools. This is the truth. When an Incarnation is in human form, we do not accept him as a Master. Bhagvad Gita Decoded
For good or for bad, I am.
I am constantly trying to pay attention to my thoughts and the forces behind my actions. Working my way to become more and more aware of the thoughts/ emotions and the different reasons of my actions. I'm where I am today because of the choices I made. I can only do things better if I'm not happy or satisfied with the results of my previous actions but without the previous outcome, positive or negative, I wouldn't have the insight as to what IS a better way.
I've done good choices and bad choices and sometimes choices that are somewhere in between.
I accept the outcome results of it all, darkness as the light, positive as negative, everything that is, IS because of my actions, can't blame anyone else.
I am thankful for all of it, it's because of the previous choices I made, I am today.
It's the choices I'm doing now which will bring results to the future, without doubt.
I am 🔱🕉🙏🏼❤️ May all wake up to their own ignorance and wrong views 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
Ganesha Chaturthi Brahmotsavam is the celestial celebrations of the avataric birth day of Lord Ganesha. This day falls every year on the fourth day from the new moon day of the Bhadrapada month of Vedic lunar calendar which usually falls on August-September months. This year it commences today.
It is the time when the consciousness and energy of Ganesha can be tapped in the best way. It is also the time when the Kundalini energy can be harnessed unalloyed at its source.
Ganesha is a powerful form of the Cosmos.The pasha on His left upper hand is the rope that does not allow thoughts to become engram. The ankusha or the goad on His right upper hand is a small instrument to control a huge elephant. It represents “Un-clutching”. With this ankusha even the thoughts are removed. His upper two arms represent His pure inner space. When Vyasa wanted Ganesha’s to pen down the great epic Mahabharata that was overflowing through Vyasa, Ganesha did not find anything to use for writing. Immediately He broke one of His tusks and used it for penning down. The broken tusk represents spontaneous decision-making capacity, courage to sacrifice for the cause. The modaka – sweet balls on His left lower hand represent that life will be sweet if the above mentioned qualities are there. His elephant face represents extraordinary awareness and sensitivity (elephant has an extraordinary power of sight and smell). His pot belly represents the whole Cosmos. Indeed He is Cosmic intelligence. The mouse represents playfulness. The cobra on His waist represents He is the source of the Kundalini energy.
Over 15,000 years ago, #Adiyogi appeared in the upper regions of the #Himalayas . No one knew where he came from or what his origins were. He just came and went into intense ecstatic dance upon the mountains.
People saw that he was experiencing something that nobody had known before, something that they were unable to fathom. So they gathered around him wanting to know what it was. But no one had the courage to go near him because he was so intense, like a blazing flame of fire. So they waited, hoping something would happen. Some people waited for months and left and Only seven hardcore seekers stuck on. These seven were insistent that they must learn from him, but #Shiva ignored them. They pleaded and begged him, “Please, we want to know what you know.”
At last after 84 years of intense #sadhana ,he decided to become a #Guru . On a full moon day which is known as Guru Pournami because the Adiyogi transformed himself into the Adi Guru – the first Guru was born on that day. He took the seven #disciples to #Kantisarovar and started a systematic exposition of yoga in a #scientific manner. He began propounding the whole mechanics of life to these seven people, not intellectually as a philosophy, but experientially. He explored every nut and bolt of creation with them. He brought forth yoga as a technology with which every human being can evolve himself.
The transmission went on for a long period of time. After many years, when it was complete and had produced seven fully enlightened beings, who are today celebrated as the #Sapta#Rishis , Adiyogi sent each one of them to different parts of the world. ....#JaiAdiyogi#HarHarMahadev#jaibholenath#OmNamahShivaay#JaiMahakaal#OmNamahShivaay#JaiBholenath#jaishivshankar#HarHarMahadev#narayan#JaiMahakaal#OmNamahShivaay#JaiBholenath#jaishivshankar#HarHarMahadev#JaiShriKrishna#shambhu#Shankar#Namah#shivaay#namaste
"Kindly Demonstrate the highly energetic and cosmic form,who is behind the destruction and creation of this infinite universe.. hey mahadeva!! hey AdiGuru!!...." -Asked the Seventh Sidha Sage (sidhh sapt-rishis). In the midst of that Fiery Circle the Lord Himself was seen dancing the Cosmic Dance: In the Yoga tradition, one of the Thousand Names of God (Shiva) is Nataraja, that is, Lord Of The Cosmic Dance.
Intimidative yet highly epic "bhavya" the scene was <3
In spite of the infinite number of movements and steps
performed by His Body, at the very centre of this wild whirling dance, Shiva's Head always remains completely motionless, with a serene smile on His lips, reminding us of the centre of our own being, deep inside us, where we can find perfect stillness, peace and happiness.. :) Verily, the Great Lord graciously proceeded to demonstrate His Supreme Divine Nature by means of a Celestial dance 🕉🕉 #lordshiva#mahadeva#nataraja#tandava#cern#godparticle#bholenath#cosmos#divine#shivaNataraja#shivatandava#pashupati#adiyogi
