They stabbed me in the back? It’s ok. They lied to me? It’s ok. They used me? It’s ok. I keep working. I keep pushing. I Overcome it all – One day at a time. Let Go … Let God. It is not that easy. It takes a great deal, your energy, your entire life but is worth.
The game begins when you stop giving up and keep pushing. #PUSH #PUSH & #PUSH ; This expression means that faith can change any situation in the field of personal relationships. If you trust Him, God shows you the way to “move mountains.” The enemy of the spiritual life is ignorance because it stops us from realizing that the strength and healing power of spirituality has been given by God – all we need do is discover it and appreciate it.
I was so negative earlier that I used have self pity and asked God “ Why me ?” Finally , the inner calling , “ You are not alone , all suffers.” When I am happy , I never ask God , “ Why me ?” I am grateful for every situation in my life . Whenever I feel disturbed , I find I am wrong somewhere and I stop fault finding in others. I remember on doha of Kabir , “ बुरा जो देखन मैं चला, बुरा न मिलिया कोय, जो दिल खोजा आपना, मुझसे बुरा न कोय।“ What I justified or unjustified I don’t know . Spiritual life is not a theory, I have to live it. I strive for progress not perfection. Mistake do happen but no pint of clinging, accept and move on.
There is a story narrated to me by Swami Niranjananda Saraswati , head of Bihar School of Yoga to me , when I was going through my horrible time , “Once upon a time there lived a man in a tranquil little village. It was a time when not many people lived on the planet, when human beings could commune with God, and demons and God lived together. Every morning people would go to their farms and every evening return to a warm house. Life was very contented and happy.
One day, God appeared in front of the man and said, “See that huge rock in the field. Go and push it.” The man looked at the rock and thought, “Well, for the first time in the history of humanity God has asked a human being to do something.” So from then on, every morning he would get up, perform his morning Asana, Pranayama and Shatkarmas, have his breakfast, go to the rock and start pushing.
After many years the man became a bit tired of going through the same routine day after day. This was the moment the devil had been waiting for. The devil entered the man’s head and said, “Look, you have been pushing this rock for many years now. What have you achieved? It has not moved at all, not even half an inch. What is the use of doing something you can never accomplish?” The man thought, “The devil is right. I have spent twenty years of my life pushing that rock. It has not moved an inch!” So he said, “No more!” and sat down. He stopped doing his morning Asana, Pranayama, and Shatkarmas.
When God returned, he saw that the man had not pushed the rock for many months. When he asked why, the man said, “This is a futile exercise. I have pushed the rock for twenty years and nothing has happened. The rock is still here! Nothing has moved. Not even an inch. I am only wasting my time. Knowing that it is an impossible feat, I have stopped making the effort.”
God looked at the man, smiled and said, “I asked you to push the rock. I did not ask you to move the rock; that was your own idea. My instruction was clear. As far as moving the rock is concerned, I can do it with a click of my fingers. The entire rock can become dust before you can even say my name. I asked you to push the rock and that is what you should have done.”
What should our perspective and attitude be in life? We are asked to push something and we expect it to move. Our focus and awareness is on moving, not on pushing. After every tiny bit of effort we put into pushing, we look down to see whether we are moving forward or not. So whenever you encounter an obstacle – Push. Push means Pray Until Something Happens !!!
