Religion vs pure spirituality?

2e6aad47118d77a0a160d663eedb6f76.jpgA trend of our time is to take away the outer part and focus only on the essence. People are fed up with politics, and they want the organization without form, an organization consisting only of an idea, but it’s impossible. The essence is like water, and the form is similar to a glass, and if I want to drink, I ask to bring me some water. But for some reason they bring me the glass also. No, I asked for water, why did you bring me a glass – but without the glass water  is impossible to bring… So people want spirituality without formalities, spirituality without the organization, but this is illusion, it is the desire to be independent. So it  would not do without religion, but we have to have a good understanding what religion actually is. And in order to understand what religion is, you have to answer one very important question: Why do I need a religion, what I want from it? I want to solve financial problems or spiritual? And I understand that the solution will be different from what I imagine it would be?

Typically, everyone goes first through a stage of the believing materialist. They seem to follow religion, but want to solve their material problems for the health and prosperity. Then they take an interest in knowledge, and their motive gets higher. They are now wondering how to solve all the problems of the existence – this is called the desire of liberation or peace. And only at the third level  the person gets the desire to establish a personal relationship with God. This is the purest motive in the religious life, because such people are not selfish. Such people are rare. And these three motives (karma, jnana and bhakti) can be found in every tradition. So the matter is not the religion, it’s in us. Because real progress it is not an administrative progress. It is not the progress of initiations. The real progress is a progress of motives. (V. Ruzov)

How often do you feel upset or offended?

how-to

We only can feel offended and insulted if we are proud. We may even phrase that we feel good about some aspect of anything related to us – it may be some skill, amount of money, talent, knowledge, any kind of achievement, looks. So when someone doubts it or does not agree with our evaluation or level of it, then there we go…

So, being in the mood of student – humble and understanding… that no one can be perfect or know everything even on one subject matter, that other people don’t have to take our self-evaluation into account, that whatever  related to me ( as a body or mind ) is actually temporary.

If someone doubts our spiritual level and we get offended, it means that we are proud of our spirituality and that itself disqualifies us of that level. Remember the saints – they all were very humble – seeing own imperfections and glorifying others.

Vedic astro-forecast for October – part 1 (by Anna Semyonova)

The main energy of October is a desire for purity. Around us there is so much dirt and nonsense, it begins to annoy. Even the most steeped in sin can stop and think again, or at least to think about what s/he was doing. And there is only one thing needed  – the presence of (even a small grain of) honesty in the heart. And sincerity reacts to sincerity, therefore, the quality of sincerity should be our foundation in all our relations in October. If you want to change something – be sincere.

Sincerity will force many of us to look for something new. You will see the long-awaited desire for change. Perhaps even expectation of a miracle, that should happen and bring an update. People are tired of suffering, and when they are given a ray of hope, they are happily hold onto it. Indeed, in October, especially the first half of it can bring us to the solution of many problems, good luck and unexpected lightness in matters that have seemed difficult and even unsolvable.

This means that many things will come to hand, horizons become wider, trees – larger, and we – younger.  We certainly are not going to get younger, but at this time we can feel ten years younger in every sense. This is when you can start a new large-scale projects, which were difficult to execute in previous months due to the obstacles and delays. In October, you can easily achieve goals and really expand the horizons of your influence. Relationships can start to improve and friends to return. There will be new grounds for cooperation, especially in politics, business and religious projects. However, we must not forget that this positive period still takes place within a year of negative Mars , which means that you need to make sure that this cooperation does not go into the area “being  friends against someone.”

This month will give also some impatience in the implementation of plans. Whenever things start to go well after stagnation, people tend to lose the skill of  waiting patiently for the result, while laboring on it’s achievement. Unfortunately, along with appearance of  the ease  attachment to the results comes back. Generally  October will push toward excess, so you have to follow the diet and control all other aspects of life, where the excesses are usually shown. Desires simply multiply. In general, we should not forget about moderation!

What is responsibility ?

responsibility-is-100-readiness-to-accept-any-and-all-results-or-consequences-of-my-actions-and-inactionsWhat is responsibility?  It is 100%  readiness to accept any and all results or consequences of my actions and inactions.

Here are some examples :

  • someone stepped on my foot – I am responsible – I was on the way
  • my child is trowing tantrum  – I am responsible – I did not prepare him/her for situation
  • people crossing my boundaries of space or time – I am responsible – I did not show and explained them clearly there the line is
