Namaskar. Trials and tribulations come in the life of all. This human life is both challenging and attractive. These challenges in human life at times can be overpowering. At times you can feel there's no place to turn, there's no one to go to, there's nothing to ease your pain. And you may try to run from these problems. But if you allow the problems to exist without judgement, without running, without any kind of attachment to them, and you simply take the ideation that everything is a form a God, everything is a form of the infinite Brahma, and you take that remembrance, and you keep that remembrance at all times; you feel even in these difficulties Lord is with me, the divine one is there with me. There is no duality, no separation between us.
When you take this ideation you will find that even the difficult times—the sorrow, the sadness, the anger, the fear, the anxiety—become the body of the divine. When you accept that the infinite is in all the forms of this world, both pure and impure, both pleasurable and painful, and when you are in complete acceptance, then you see in the darkness the light. You see that which leads from darkness to light, the true guru, the presence of infinite love embodied even in your pain. Even your darkest moods and your greatest fears that divine presence is there.
And as you settle into acceptance, allowing, you begin to move through the darkness following that small beam of light, that small understanding that everything is the form of the one; that the divine essence is in all forms. Knowing this, allow yourself to be with whatever form is being presented to you at the moment. And then allow yourself to look into that, rather than running from it, and see within it the light of infinite being, the all-encompassing grace that is there in all forms, in all experiences within this world.
Then, even your greatest sorrow, your deepest fear, your most painful moments become times when you are with the eternal Beloved; times when you feel through the pain, the presence. When you become aware of the infinite essence of being, the love that is undivided, that is the foundation of the opposites. Within the opposites, within pleasure and pain, joy and sorrow, having your desires met and being in want, within them both, within health and illness, lies the one that is indivisible—the one source that never changes, the presence that always is. And so, it is just as present in the darkness as in the light. Just as present in your harder moments as in your brightest and happiness. In fact, you may have more access in your harder moments than in your happy moments when you're outgoing and not thinking of the deep nature of what is.
So never be distressed by what life presents you. No matter how difficult, find your way, find your home; find your truth in the moment, find the deeper essence, the deeper truth in what is before you. Let it speak to you. Let it comfort you. Let it hold you. Allow yourself to feel that deeper essence. Rather than something you run from, let your pain be a doorway; something you stand with, you look into, you open your soul and you commune with the Beloved behind the dark veil of suffering.
Love divine comes through many different experiences. In the depth of your meditation, in the depth of your grief, in the depth of your sorrow, in the depth of your fear, in the depth of your joy, in the depth of your happiness and bliss, that one is there. Your soul communes with the infinite and that gracious presence is there to experience, to know the transmission of infinite love is always there. The transmission of infinite grace, the transmission of guidance is always there.
Just remove the umbrella of ego. Let go. Let go. Listen with your heart and you will find the light of the infinite abides even in the darkest shadows. You are never alone or helpless. That which guides the stars, guides the heavens, the heavenly bodies, guides all things. Guides you. That presence is closer than close—a love, a grace always there, even in your darkest hour. Settle back, allow, find the light, find the love, feel the grace. Namaskar.
