Do not ask me for happiness, ask for the strength to endure unhappiness.”
- H.H. Bhaktaraj Maharaj

Since happiness is from the Great Illusion, it is temporary. Hence, one should not ask the Guru for it. Simultaneously one should bear in mind that granting everlasting Bliss is the real mission of the Guru. However, if one has to experience unhappiness according to one’s destiny, then the Guru definitely gives one the strength to endure the unhappiness arising from those traumatic events. So, it does not matter, if one asks the Guru for inner strength to face them.

Dear readers, please see the below link to learn more about the Guru principle -

I am alone and I come alone."
-Teachings of Saint Bhaktaraj.

Implied meaning:
One who has merged oneself with 'That One' ie., Supreme God, is always all alone and the Omnipresent one. There is no union or separation for him, no restrictions and no relations either.

Unknown to our conscious mind the impressions in the sub-conscious mind are the main cause of our actions and our reactions and the basis of our personality. In truth our personality is a slave to the impressions in our sub-conscious mind.

To change our thoughts, we need to change the impressions in the sub-conscious mind with the help of the personality defect removal process and autosuggestions. This process directly addresses the negative impressions and changes them to the positive. In this way, our behaviors automatically changes for the better.

* Spiritual story *

My door is always open for you

Once in a small town near Venice there lived a young girl called Lisa. As she grew up into a teenager she got into the company of bad girls and boys. She took to bad habits like drinking, smoking and partying. Her pious and loving parents were heartbroken over the behaviour of their only child, but felt helpless. Soon Lisa decided to leave home and went to live in the city where she could enjoy herself even more. As years went by, friends abandoned her, and she became very lonely and sad.

At last she realised her mistake, but then it was too late. Alone, hopeless and friendless, she felt lost and decided to end her life. But even as she thought about suicide, she was driven by a strong urge to visit her childhood home, just once, for the very last time in her life.
She chose a dark night to return home, hoping that she might come away from there, unseen by anyone. To her shock, she found the door of her humble cottage wide open, even in the middle of the night.

Fearing the worst, she called out impulsively, "Mother, mother, are you all right?" In an instant, her old mother stood in the open doorway. "Welcome home my child," she called. "We knew you would come back to us one day!"
The girl fell at her mother's feet, sobbing uncontrollably. "Ah, mother!" she wept. "I don't deserve your love!" "It is long since you left us, my dear," said the mother, "But, we have continued to pray for you day and night. ‘Bring her home safely, my God!' we have asked Him again and again.

Whether you came by night or by day, we wanted you to see the ever open door of your home, and know that you are always welcome here!"
Moral: Just as a mother forgives and accepts her child regardless of what the child has done, God always keeps His doors open for us. If at any time one feels that one has drifted away from God and has doubts whether it would be possible to regain one's closeness to Him, one should always remember that God's door is always open to us.
Call out to Him, by chanting (repeating) His Name, and He will respond.

Spiritual experiences of Dr (Mrs) Lynda Borkar how His Holiness Dr Athavale helped me overcome the fear of driving.

Dr (Mrs) Lynda BorkarI started spiritual practice under the guidance of His Holiness Dr Athavale in 1995 when I was based in Goa. In January 1997, His Holiness Dr Athavale had visited Goa for a series of lectures. Around that time, I had just learnt to drive but due to being involved in a minor accident, I was very nervous to get behind the wheel again. His Holiness Dr Athavale did not know about this. However during the series of lectures, He asked me to drive to a nearby town, Madgaon along with another lady seeker. I did not think twice and I complied. During the drive to Madgaon, I was surprised at how I was able to drive in such a crowded town despite all my fears.

Later in that same week there was another public address by His Holiness Dr Athavale in Pernem which was a nearby town. This time He said that he would come in my car. Another seeker sat in the driver’s seat but His Holiness Dr Athavale told him to let me drive. As I took the wheel once again, His Holiness Dr Athavale Himself sat in the front passenger seat beside me.

During that drive I realised that I had overcome my fear of driving. Ever since then, there has been no looking back and I have been confident of driving anywhere.
From this experience, I realised that the Guru principle knows all our fears and weaknesses.

To help us overcome such fears the process used by the Guru principle may not necessarily be straightforward like some advice or guidance related to the specific fear. However just by listening to the manifest Guru (in the form of His Holiness Dr Athavale), I was able to face the fear of driving and overcome it permanently in 2 short drives.

Phyiscal activities can be tiring after some time. However, for our spiritual progress to happen rapidly, we need to take care that our spiritual practice happens at any time.

For example, we can pray and chant during activities or ask ourselves if we could have done an activity in a better way. In this way, even if our body may be exhausted, our mind is connected to the Divine (God) and this will bring enthusiasm and joy.

Why do we need Spiritual Healing?

Spiritual research has shown us that up to 80% of the problems in a person’s life can have their root in the spiritual dimension.

When the root cause of a problem is in the spiritual dimension, then it needs to be treated spiritually. Just as taking Tylenol will not reduce a psychological problem such as depression, similarly if the cause of the problem is spiritual in nature, for instance caused by a blockage in the Kundalini, or distress from negative energies, medical treatment will not be able to cure the problem.

Spiritual healing remedies have the ability to overcome the problem at its root. However, SSRF recommends continuing conventional medical or psychiatric treatment alongside spiritual healing for a comprehensive treatment.
