Last one week has been a week of doing nothing. the first few days I was down with viral fever and right now I am undergoing a Ayurvedic treatment called Virechana that basically detoxifies the whole body in a span of 6 days. The most specific instruction during this treatment is " Do Nothing". Do not sleep and do not meditate!

So amidst all the chaos created by all yesplusites in and around my room I have been contemplating just on this one thought," what is that I want in life"?

I observed that most of the time, actually almost all the time, the mind is occupied by superficial desires. Fleeting desires created by egoistic tendencies and likes and dislikes. Really pointless.

Progress happens when just one desire dominates, just one goal, one focus, one path, one direction. Only one thing to look for.

And that one thing would be realising that I am that! So ham... from where the journey began.

Q: What is the importance of a "good" job in life. Good as in great brand, respectful, impressive, gives you money but you are utterly disappointed with bosses, seniors, colleagues et. al because none of them behave like humans! All of them have the three powerful 'I's in them. They are Idiots, Insensitive & Insensible. The harder, more sincerely and smartly you work, the more magnificently it gets unnoticed. FAKENESS reigns supreme in the office. You are not happy the entire 12 hours you spend in office. Knowing all this must one even think of staying on?

Have you ruled out the possibilty of becoming an entrepreneur? so that you can create jobs rather than do one? No matter what your education is, keep options open. Like we know of a guy who is a engineer but has wada pav stalls in Japan and is earning in millions! Becuase if you are spending 12 hours everyday in an office how can you expect to be happy all the time? First of all understand that is there is NOTHING called " job satisfaction". The world would have been an utterly boring place if jobs would satisfy us. You do job to earn money, food, shelter etc and for satisfaction you do Sadhna, Seva and satsang. In seva one should not care about being noticed and acknowledged but in a job you need to be ethical yet skillful. Good and talented is not enough. Be strong and skillful and learn to deal with all sorts of people. Play the game 100% while you are there and also see to it that in too much of generalising the bad you dont miss out on the good.

By the way according to me its not a good idea to spend half your life in an office. There are far more important and better things to do in life. But while you are there get them on the path.

Finally become an Art of Living teacher and spread the knowledge if you really want to be happy.

It must be really frustrating for some of you to keep checking my blog to see nothing new. I really dont know what to write. I know there is a lot I can write about but I do not want to post just for the sake of posting something. Whenever I sit to write I am just going blank. Really funny.

May be some of you guys can email me some questions on rashmin.pulekar@gmail.com.

What say?

" Today we will feed everybody" We were quite surprised when Guruji made this announcement in the kitchen while HE was having his food during the advance course in Dalarna in Sweden.

There was food made for 5 people and around 30 people had a full meal! One more Guru Magic! That is what this day, Guru "poornima" signifies! Experiencing the fullness.

When we feel grate"full" for all that we have received we experience abundance. We realise how fortunate we are, insecurities and complaints disappear and a feeling of blessedness dawns in life.

This is the point of being on the path.

JaiGurudev!
