The subject of our relationship with the Creator has been exhausted by various Philosophers and religious preachers, interpreting it in diverse ways. But for me, my curiosity wasn’t quenched until I experienced the emotions in my own heart. In fact, my spiritual journey started with finding who was ‘Me’ and what God or Universe or Creator meant. The next segment of this journey was to discover the relationship between ‘Me’ and the ‘Creator of Me’. Creation is like a mother giving birth to a baby, a sculptor carving wood into a sculpture or a painter painting the canvas, and so on and so forth. The closest analogy that resonated with me was the similarity between a mother and the creator. So, when I meditate I believe I am communicating with my Supreme mother, the Nirankar. In fact, since the concept of the Supreme being is not gender-based; God is my spiritual parent- both the mother and the father. Elaborating on the basis of the analogy described above, I shall continue to elucidate this relationship further. Imagine the parent coaching a child to ride a bike, after the initial push and support, the parent releases the child into the freedom of self-responsibility. In the same way, after a soul is reborn in a new body and takes the first independent step on the ground of his life, he walks on his two feet on the path he chooses for himself. Like a parent, the creator does guide and advise, but it’s up to the individual to adhere or not. That’s why it’s said that ‘God helps those who help themselves.’ The more one is receptive to Nirankar’s guidance, the safer our path would be. There’ll always be pebbles and holes on the road, but you could skirt around them without tripping or slipping. Freedom of choice is our birthright, bestowed upon us by the Almighty Omnipotent. What we make of our life is based on the choices we make. To ensure that we’ve made the right choice, there’s only one supreme choice one could make, and the entire life would fall in place like a jigsaw puzzle – that is, Choose to listen to your conscious which is also the voice of the creator. Start with introspection and find your own self first, proceed to meditation to discover what and who is the supreme entity of your resonation, and then, believe in what you find. It’s an individual’s responsibility to develop own spiritual maturity, without which one is on a hamster’s wheel, running but reaching nowhere. Beyond that, it’ll be like floating on the Great salt lake, as God wouldn’t let you sink. For more details about techniques to meditate and introspect, and about the concept of a Supreme Being, please refer to many of my other posts covering the subject matter.
I believe in God’s generosity to ‘give’, and I expect to receive this generosity – sound like a familiar thought? Of course, it’s what most of us feel and why such a craze about the Law of Attraction! We believe, we expect and we get…..hang on, not so fast. LOA might work miracles in our lives, but is certainly no magic trick, whatever the media gurus and coaches claim, frankly. So what does it mean? In my spiritual experience, the expectation is the consequence of belief, and what we manifest is a direct result of our belief plus expectation ‘beyond any doubt’. Belief is confidence, positivity, and trust- in what is; Expectation is a calculation, projection, and assurance- of what should be: I believe in myself to desire right, the Universe (God) to give right, and because of my belief I should receive right. However convincing this theory might be, it’s after all a science- a Law. So, there’s a plan and discipline involved in its execution. First I need to be absolutely sure about the thought that the power of the Omnipotent is real. ‘Only’ then would I be motivated to invest morally strong karma in order to build my expectations from the Omnipotence of the Almighty. God is generous but am I worthy of receiving the blessings? Expectations take time to take hold in the soil of your faith. The science starts with meditation and meditation starts with introspection. One needs to nurture the trust in God/ Nirankar with righteous thoughts first, which would beget virtuous actions. The definition of virtuous action is subjective. For example, it might mean selfless service towards others only, but for me, it means ‘charity begins at home’, i.e. Me. After all, it’s my belief, my expectation, my life. Others do matter but fall in place once I sort my own mindset. I would also stress the fact that action is the bridge between the belief and the expectation. Thence, Belief is the primary foundation on which one should build Expectation, gradually. To summarise, I start with a growing belief in God ‘beyond doubt’- this is imperative or the miracle won’t work. Consequently, I would be motivated and influenced to ‘do right’ by myself first and then the community by default since my action/karma would be morally justified. The third step of evolution would be to build expectation, i.e. confidence in receiving returns, ‘beyond doubt. It’s at this third step that the Law of Attraction is fully charged and desire is ready to manifest. Those who expect without constructing belief, are building a castle in the air.
