Meditations with symbols and how to fight depression- Meditations - Toronto

From: Yoga Guru T.
Sent on: Tuesday, March 18, 2014 4:10 PM

I got the call in the evening and remembered the person because the person was member of famous religious group.


The person was depressed and asked for an appointment and did not come.


Three days ago the person committed suicide.


Death is not always a great tragedy but this person was not even 30.


(When you are 50 and hear of young people ending their lives due to depression, you will always feel like a beggar watching a millionaire crying.


With age everyone becomes naturally depressed.There is good depression which makes us change and be free of things everyone else wants.

Bad clinical depression is when we see some one as being bad and blame others. Try not to fight depression with will power as force and violence is not working nowadays. I meet a lot of people with plastic smiles and really bad inner diseases.)


21-33 are considered to be the best years of life as a person is in prime but  now young people can be very depressed.


While earlier we had to struggle with reconciling the material and the spiritual world, now young people have to struggle with the addition of a virtual world where there is everything and nothing.


You can have e friends and yet be alone. You can have communications but feel unheard. You can have connections but be lonely.


Similarly you can have access to information on utube about various rituals and techniques but without understanding that all techniques are simply tools to become free so that you use the technique and then you have to throw away.)


The person was using all the techniques but without understanding that all techniques are ladders which have to be thrown away after use and growing.


Try not to become prisoner to any technique or think that because you know a technique, you are special and now can sell it or make others respect you.


Religious techniques are a way to see everyone else around us as Special.


Solution : Pray and then present the benefits of the prayers- mantras to all sentient beings.


Understand that all mantras are prayers for others and not for your own individual personality.


By presenting to the other people benefits of your prayers - mantras and efforts, you will become self realized.


North America is rich but people feel poor as most people start to live for ourselves.


When we offer our prayers to others,we serve others .


When we serve others, our soul feels fulfilled and life on planet feels meaningful.


When our life feels meaningful as we are helping others and not living for our physical body or personality, we achieve true bliss.


This is the bliss we are meant to follow and not the bodily bliss most people confuse this with.


In this way by praying for others , we avoid or lessen depression.


Our higher soul is happy that we are meeting our aim of being on the planet.


We are serving others unconditionally and endlessly.


All of us on this planet who live or work only for ourselves end up in trouble so just do everything as a prayer for others.


Say Mantras and Prayers but offer them to all people and beings on the planet.


In this way you will grow and have only good depression:)

Koan from last week:


Answer to 5 people on track and baby on another.


Scenario:

You control the changing of the track.


Suppose instead of changing the track, the question is as follows:


There is a track on which 5 people are lying.


There is another track on which a baby is playing.


There is a very fat person standing in a place near the track where if he falls, the direction of the train will change to the other track.


Should you push him or not.


If you push, you save the five people but are responsible for the death of the baby and the person you pushed.


If you dont do anything, the baby is saved.


The answer:


Koans dont have any real right answer as the process of thinking is considered to be a meditation .The process of meditating on the koan makes the person see life - meditation in a different way.


The above scenario is used to show that we have to learn to trust the universe.


Trusting the universe is not a logical thing.


The above scenario shows that logic will always make us immoral.


The trick in the question is not to focus on the number but in what it means to us.There can be five or  there can be five million but to save them if we have to become murderer of an innocent baby, then it may not be worth it.


Numbers may be an illusion while saving the baby - our soul may be the most important job in the universe.


Stalin, Hitler,,,everyone used the logic of saving or helping many to cause damage to a few.



As Dostoevskii said- if we build a heaven , but it is built on the tears of a baby, then it is not worth it.
