Today, let me suggest an amazingly effective exercise which can solve almost all of our major issues.
Step 1: Calm yourself and sit straight
Step 2: Close your eyes
Step 3: Slowly inhale and exhale
Step 4: Now think, are you worthy of doing the above 3 steps!
Repeat the same – Now think are you worthy of doing the above while you accuse, abuse, compare, complain and so on.
Psalms 46:10 – Be still & know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth!
When we are asked to BE STILL, are we really doing it? Chaos is the norm here; we do not have to train our mind to be chaotic. The never-ending continuous turmoil is naturally within us. The doubting, judging, comparing, raging and agonizing spirits are the invaders who have already made this mind the most dangerous and brutal colonies ever existed!
Mark 4:35-41 – That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat so that it was nearly swamped. 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?”39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?”41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
We are like the troubled sea, being wild and exalting the self even when the creator is onboard and sailing. Sometimes like this mindless waters, we have a naïve attitude that we are the one connecting the shores and carrying Him to the other side. This wild mind is never calm or still, it just boasts on its being. Because of the stubborn jealous nature, its demands are endless. Even if it kneels is to get more and to be exalted by others. In our ignorance, we forget that this self-exaltation in His proximity is creating an infinite distance between the Self and Him – the life-giver!
When the creator arose and commanded the mindless sea and wind to be quiet and still, they obeyed Him because they knew Him.
Let our rational mind listen to His voice and be still and know He is God! His name is exalted among the nations and exalted in the earth!
God Bless You All!
