Dream - Sri Bhagavan's New Year Message - 2009

"The New Year is meant to Dream and to bring forth a new creation. Dream

Let your feelings grow wings and fly beyond the farthest horizons of your imagination, though the fabrics of your dream be checkered by the longings of pleasures and victory, made be of the hues of growth and service, may the forms dance in the flames of your imagination be of loving friendship from many and respect from most .........including yourself.

Dream of a moment when your mothers and fathers, sons and daughters would embrace you when they realize the trust they reposed in you has come true.

Dream of a moment when in your family, the coolness of hurt is replaced by the warmth of Love

Dream of a moment when all who know turn you in to an ideal to be emulated.

Dream of a moment when even those dislike you are touched by your acts of kindness and looked upon you with esteem.

Dream of a moment when millions will bless the moment you were born.

Dream of yourself being part of a world that knows no division.

Dream of an Earth where the rivers are full, the forest green, sunlight bright, mountains tall and laughter everywhere......and after you have dream pray the Cosmic Dreamer to help turn these in to realities, fatigued with excitement, move then into the quiet of your consciousness."
Thank you.

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?
