Life As It Is and Can Be - Mahavatar Babaji

Often, we receive emails or comments placed on Virtual-Babaji-Vishwananda blog, like this following one, and the life situations written here seem to be of a general nature. All people seem to have these same experiences in life at various time cycles.

Dear Mahavatar Babaji, dear Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama,
I have something on my heart that troubles me since a long time already, and in fact it is a challenge I experience every day and I would love to turn to Babaji with this issue, and ask His blessing and support- the issue I have is maybe one that other people face, too. It is this: every day it seems there is a struggle going on inside of me between what my Heart and Soul REALLY wants, and what my mind "thinks" it wants or "needs". For example: I do have a lot of free time at the moment. So, what I, inside my Heart, wish I would do, would be to meditate and pray a lot to make good use of this time given to me at the moment. But then, reality often looks a little different- yes, I do my prayers and some Sadhana every day, but much more time is spent doing things that I know do not really benefit me on my spiritual path. So, even with that knowledge, it still seems too hard to get out of this habit of spending so much time on Facebook, Youtube, etc. or just doing things that occupy the mind and transport us into another "reality", but do not benefit us spiritually- why is this?

 Is it the "fight" between the light and the dark that goes on as soon as we aim for realisation? But all the saints managed to overcome it, and they all did so well- how can I achieve this? If I just sit down to meditate or do Sadhana, suddenly I feel so lazy and bored- but I want to break free from this habit. Sometimes I do manage, but then the next day its again so difficult- it’s a struggle every day- and it makes me feel very sad, because I do not want to feel like I wasted my precious life, and who knows how long my life will be, it could be finished tomorrow if He so wills it! 

In Love and seeking your spiritual blessing and guidance "

Mahavatar Babaji Response: Dear Ones, as Swami Vishwananda continually teaches you, “The longest journey of your life is the 18 inches from head to heart.” Do your spiritual practice, your sadhana, pray, meditate, do jappa or chanting the name of God. Accept whatever The Divine sends with equanimity of mind; stay in the heart spirit as much as you can or choose. This is simple and man makes this process of surrendering everything to The Divine complex. Take as long as you want or as long as The Divine wills it. Sometimes, you seem to remember it takes centuries. It most times does! As Swami Vishwananda says, “Try to enjoy it!”

Love and blessings to one and all,
Mahavatar Babaji

He placed the blessed ring upon my hand,
Mahavatar Babaji, the Param Guru
And Sri Swami Vishwananda Premavatar,
The SatGuru.

He blessed the ring,
And through my hand
A river of golden energy flowed deep within
To every cell and every angelic connection
Through heaven and realms beyond this Earthly plane.

Like the Rock of Ages and the blood of Christ
Which bring His love within the Heart,
“Place this ring on a chain,” Mahavatar said,
“And were it near the heart at night
And in the day wear it on the  finger
Where He places it at the proper time and place.

Time will pass and when Samadhi is taken
Like the stories of Saint Jerome and his writings,
So it will be placed within the relic picture
Of a certain Swamini hanging at that Holy Place
Called Shree Peetha Nilaya,
Wherein Bhakti Marga is the Path to the Divine.

Like the body and blood of Christ offered there,
Relics like those of Saint Jerome
Bring Christ Consciousness whenever viewed,
Revered and kissed,
If even for a moment to those who attune.

“Rock of Ages cleft for me.
Let me hide myself in thee: . . . . . . . . .
Mahavatar Babaji,
Sri Swami Vishwananda Premavatar
And Christ Jesus,
All are “The Way, The truth and the Life.

Swamini Vishwalakshmianandama
