Set Right Your Vision Everything Will Be Right

Sharing a mail; read on good one;

Dear friends,

How are you? I am good and happy. What Bhagavan and Amma told me is set right your Vision, everything else I will take care. We don't know what is right for us. All our seeking is desperation to get out of the present condition. Amma Bhagavan can decide better what to give us. Just do what they say. I have attached with this mail an extract from our team 150 teachings. It will help you in setting right your vision. Work on it and stick to Amma Bhagavan in moments of despair. Every thing else will take care of itself. If India has to change every Youth should have a vision. We should find out our purpose in life.

Thanks & regards,

amma bhagwan sharanam!

Dear friends,

Below is an extract from Team 150 Teachings. It will help us all, if we work upon it. We all feel that our country is in a mess. We know everything is wrong about it. Who is to blame? the corrupt politicians or the in-able administrators or the insensitive Businessmen. Who is the reason behind it? The nation is nothing but a representation of our selves. Let us check if there is a direction to our life before rethinking the fate of our nation. What is our life? Where are we going? Is there any purpose to it? What ever our answer is, so is our nation. What can we do to change it? Let us know that if each one of we youths have direction to our life and discover and hold on to our vision then our nation will automatically change. Our Nation is not separate from us.



Check List for our Vision.

  1. We should have a permanent and Lifetime Vision - For example: Look at Bhagavan's Vision. His Vision is to make man Happy. His vision is oriented towards the next thousand's of years when man would still be happy. If ours is also like that it's good. But still at the least let us have a vision where we would work for through our life.

Our Vision should be Wide. If we have problem identifying it. Talk to relevant people and gather information and see what interests you. What do you think or consider as being the Best thing to do. Mostly our own experience in this world would be sufficient to determine what our Vision is.

For working through our life there are 2 factors or conditions. Or else what ever our vision is it will take a max of only 2 years. And if we don't set right our vision we will convert this 2 years vision to a life time vision. This is very slow progress & growth rate just like our Nation.

2 Factors for a Vision:

    1. Contribution (To help others) - It is a never ending process. We can keep contributing through our life. Ex: Again Bhagavan. You can contribute in any field that interests you. It is our choice.
    2. Growth - Learning is the most important thing in this world. To contribute we have to learn.

Split the Vision into Long Term and Short Term: How are we going to achieve it. What do we have to learn in the process? Since Growth is also a factor, we have to see what we have to learn to achieve it. How are we to develop ourselves to be capable of achieving it?

There should be details in the Vision - Time and year for achieving each step and the final vision.

The Vision should be split up into Short Term Goals. Because to climb a ladder first we have to climb each step. These goals should be wholesome including Career (Wealth, growth, etc.), academics (Learning), relationship (Very important to enjoy life), health and Spirituality (Complete dedication in whatever we are doing). Also our Vision should depend on us and not on others.

Our effort is required for all the above factors. Which is what we can we do. Any attempt or effort in the above direction will enhance the following.

Amma Bhagavan's Blessing. When we do all the above, we realize that there would be many things which are beyond our control and not possible by us. For what is not possible by us, there is Amma Bhagavan and for what is possible they have given us life and whatever we have. When these both are interlinked our life becomes a miracle.

Remember we have to become our Vision. And that is Amma Bhagavan's Vision.

Daily Morning (Immediately after waking up) and Night (Before going to Sleep) think and Visualize about your Vision. No harm if you can think about it in other times too.

My vision was focused on Significance. I changed it to Contribution and growth and my life became a miracle.

Those who are planning on attending Amma's Personal darshan please work on this. Be clear in what you have to ask Amma.

Others, Work on this and you will know the need to meet Amma.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
