Soul Search: Jay’s Tantra way to find Answers


Sometimes, I have a deep need felt to do a soul search. Not in a Delta State but in an Alpha brainwave State.  I search for answers = rack my brains but sometimes fail.

I then pick a random Gita Shloka, a Bible Verse and relate them as Random Input from the Gods above and relate to my problem/ thoughts and by attribute listing usually find my answers.

I had been misunderstood in communications many times as rude, challenging, overbearing, dominating, assertive, aggressive, abrasive which I do it by habit and on purpose without being any of the above. The intent is to get people to think. I persist, I don’t insist they follow my advice.  But, when it is ill-perceived and people pass judgements – it hurts. While people tell me they are hurt more by my saying so as they expected me to be sweet as they think I am on their side, know them too well inside out and outside in.

It is often seen by some mentees as Dark Mentoring, Tor-Mentoring or De-Mentoring!  It does work though.  It brings out the real, hidden character to the fore without the use of an EG machine which many of the semi-insane mentees with rare sparks of brilliance and insanity hide with all their might – they get exposed.

So this time I used my own Jay Tantra, I have used before for solving complex dilemmas and this is what I got.

Habakkuk 2:18Passage: “Of what value is an idol that someone has carved? Or an image that teaches lies? For those who make them trust in their own creations; they make idols that cannot speak.

I found my answers in these.  I nurtured a wish that post my death there should be a memorial. There should be a charitable trust doing philanthropic activities and humanitarian work, the latest addition was having a memorial lecture series in my parents’ name who encouraged me to be a speaker from the age of 5 !

I realised, these are what the Bible verse refers as Idols who can not speak, and from the Gita shloka I realised that I should remain unperturbed amid sorrows,  and let these legacy pleasure thoughts disappear and become free from passion, fear and anger – this can help me attain steady wisdom.

My day was made!

Dilemma – deep hurt again. – Jay’s Tantra remedy


I go back to the Bible gifted by a friend and Bhagvadgita for answers this time again.

Lamentations 1:9Passage: Her filthiness clung to her skirts; she did not consider her future. Her fall was astounding; there was none to comfort her. “Look, LORD, on my affliction, for the enemy has triumphed.”

yagyaarthaatkarmano anyatra loko ayam karmabandhanah |
tadartham karma kaunteya muktasangah samaachara ||

Arjuna, In this world all actions become causes of bondage, unless they are performed as an offering to God. Therefore, work for the sake of God, without personal attachments.

 

When in Dire dilemma or at my wits end


When I am having a dire dilemma or I am at my wits end I run to:
1. BhagvadGita for a Random Shloka
sarvadharmaanparityajya maamekam sharanam vraja |
aham tvaa sarvapaapebhyo mokshayishhyaami maa shuchah ||


Abandoning all paths, come to Me as the only refuge. Grieve not, for I will liberate you from all sins.
and


A bible gifted to me by a friend.
2.saiah 37:17Passage: Give ear, LORD, and hear; open your eyes, LORD, and see; listen to all the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God.

Then I try and interpret in my own way and find meaning by relating these to my problems. 

I Usually find my answers in my prayers.
