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!
