- - JUST BECAUSE

1. Some Days Are Diamonds - John Denver

When You asked how I've been here without you,
I'd like to say I've been fine and I do.
But we both know the truth is hard to come by.
And if I told the truth, that's not quite true.
Some days are diamonds; some days are stones.
Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone.
Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones.
Some days are diamonds; some days are stones.

Now the face that I see in my mirror,
More and more is a stranger to me.
More and more I can see there's a danger
In becoming what I never thought I'd be.
Some days are diamonds; some days are stones.
Sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone.
Sometimes a cold wind blows a chill in my bones.
Some days are diamonds; some days are stones.

2, Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace:
St. Francis

Where there is hatred... let me sow love.
Where there is injury... pardon.
Where there is discord... unity.
Where there is doubt... faith.
Where there is error... truth.
Where there is despair... hope.
Where there is sadness... joy.
Where there is darkness... light.

Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek:
To be consoled... as to console.
To be understood... as to understand.
To be loved... as to love.

For:
It is in giving... that we receive.
It is in pardoning... that we are pardoned.
It is in dying... that we are born to eternal life.

3. Maybe there really is just O N E !

JUST BECAUSE: COMMENT

COMMENT by Anonymous:
An aspirant's TRUST in GOD or GURU should be strong and permanent. If a foundation is strong then only multi storied buildings can be built over it. If the foundation is shaky, the building standing on it will collapse. Similarly if the true aspirant's Trust is shaky some of the spiritual benefits accrued will be lost and further progress will be drastically affected.

If an aspirant has kept faith in his human Guru, whatever may happen to his/her Guru, the aspirant should not at all be bothered. (We know...that is a hard one). It is the TRUST that the aspirant keeps on his/her Guru that counts, not the guru's charisma. If the Guru's charisma is great ,but the aspirant's faith is less OR if the Gurus charisma is less,but the aspirant's Trust is abundant, it directly affects the progress of aspirant. In the former case aspirant will not gain much and in the later case the aspirant gains tremendously.Therefore, only TRUST is the yardstick to measure aspirant's spirituality.

In fact the aspirant should keep Trust not on his Guru's body / form, but in the Almighty God's presence in the Guru which is the Real GURU for the aspirant. If the Guru's body dies, the Real Guru doesn't die; if some blame comes to the guru's body, nothing affects the Real Guru. Therefore, absolutely nothing bad happens to the aspirant's Real Guru and when this is the case the aspirant is safe. The Guru's body is only a sign board --- The aspirant should move forward as per the direction shown on the sign board. The aspirant should continue his/her spiritual journey keeping his/her tremendous faith in the God inside his/her Guru. After all one fine day the aspirant will have to move from the body consciousness of his/her Guru or SADGURU towards the BRAHMAN CONSCIOUSNESS. (Or Christ Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, Krishna Consciousness, ONENESS).
