What Sri Amma of Oneness University Says Teachings

Most of the time we have seen teachings from Sri Bhagvan like Bhagvan Teachings on Suffering,
Bhagvan teachings on illusion, Sri Bhagvan Teachings and answers on Relationship and the list goes on, Also We have seen some of the most difficuilt questions are easily answered by our Bhagvan, live How to become Rich? and How to remain concentrated? and How to become successful? and my favourite is How to heal relationship problems?
Today's post is about Sri Amma's Teachings.
What Sri Amma of Oneness University Says and her Teachings.
"There are three kinds of people who walk the earth.
1. They that hurt even those who love them.
2. They that love only those who love them
3. They that love even those who hurt them

The first category of people are those who have eyes but cannot see. Who have a heart that beats relentlessly but still cannot feel. They are blind and dead to all love and care that is shown to them. They drink the love that is showered on them and yet hurt, neglect and ignore those that love. For them relationships are meant to be made use off. They are incapable of gratitude. They are a plague and a disease to mother earth. Never be one among them.

Children, the second among people are those who care only for those for those who love them. Their love is selfish and very limited. Their love lasts only so long as the other continuously loves them and plays to their tunes. They make use of people and are also
willing to be made use off, so long as it is convenient to them. But gradually they become insensitive to love and care that they experience on an on-going basis. These are the ordinary people who only survive but never get to know the joy of living.

I would certainly expect you to become conscious of yourself to see if you are one of these. The first and the second predominate the earth and hence the pain and the anguish you find everywhere.
The third among people are a blessing. It is these that maintain the balance of dharma in a world that is so adharmic and heartless. You find them everywhere, humble, innocent, mighty, great, rich, poor - among all sections of society. You may even find them in your own families. They perceive life to be an occasion for learning and therefore when people hurt them they see them messengers from the divine, who have come to teach them lessons. Are they not your gurus who teach you deep spiritual lessons on suffering, on compassion, on forgiveness? Life is ultimately a quest to know oneself. Those that hurt you, are revealing to you your innermost emotions of anger, frustration, and venom etc. Since only that which lurks inside comes out when provoked. Therefore do not labor under the presumption of your being righteous and the other being unrighteous. Be humble enough to see the truth of whatever you are. Also be grateful that those who hurt you are taking away your bad karmic debts and cleansing you.

The third kinds of people are the noblest of creation -
since they return love for
those who hurt them.Amma_8.jpg

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?
