Meditation and Fun πŸ˜Ή

A month or so back my son suggested that I should watch a Netflix series he had recently seen. He told me that it was the kind of stuff I used to enjoy. Maybe he was a little concerned that I was meditating too much during lockdown 😹

I started to watch the series and it was rather good. But I stopped watching it when it had reached the climax. My grand daughter asked me one day why had I stopped watching the series, and I told her that it had started to interfere with my meditation! Her response was: “Dadu (grandpa) do 5 hours of streaming one day instead of 5 hours of meditation and you will forget your meditation 😹

I didn’t take her advice 😊 Last week I wasn’t so well and she told me again, “Dadu do 5 hours of streaming and you will get well immediately!”

Children are so beautiful and it is such fun to be with them. I was reminded of another incidence of 6 years back when I had gone to US. I had visited a niece in Washington DC during that trip. One day we went out with her daughters. At one place there were some small water showers/ falls kind of thing and kids wanted to go and play there. I took this opportunity to sit at a little distance and meditate. After a while I felt someone touching me. I opened my eyes and found my niece’s younger daughter, 6 years old Sanajana, staring into my eyes; and she pulled my arms and said, “Come and have some fun. Don’t meditate all the time!”

How sweet, simple and loving children are! I did join them and had such fun 😻

I can’t explain to my granddaughter that playing hide and seek with my Beloved, during meditation is so much fun too πŸ’–πŸ˜Š

But I so appreciate the love and concern of children. Can’t thank God enough for His blessings πŸ’–πŸ™ Yes, balance is so important – Meditation and Fun 😊

God

Family Friends Fun

This period, when all are at home all the time has been God sent. I have been able to get so much time with Raayna and have been able to understand and appreciate her much more. Soon she would enter her teens and I don’t think she would have much time for her grandpa πŸ‘΄

Dadu and Raayna 😍

Fear to Faith – Part I; What do the Moon and the Stars say β™‘οΈβ™’οΈβ™ŠοΈ in our Current World Lockdown Situation

(Pic of YSS Ranchi Ashram (taken on 10th April evening) which was established by Paramahansa Yogananda in 1917 in Ranchi, India)

One good thing with current lockdown situation is that the sky is so clear and beautiful πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

I have been getting up rather early, and a little south of east, I can see Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in a beautiful arch; in and around the constellation of Capricorn. I love the sky and the stars. I am not an astrologer, but I do believe in astrology (did study it for a while in my younger days 😊) Unfortunately my iPhone is not able to capture this divinely beautiful and still dawn.

A few days back a niece of mine from Guatemala (Blanca, this post is for youπŸ€—) asked me, if I know anything about moon and its effect on the current world situation. I started to put my thoughts together for her but then decided to share it with you all😊

MOON does effect our lives TREMENDOUSLY. And so do all the stars and planets and their movement.

High tides and low tides are caused by the moon. The moon’s gravitational pull generates something called the tidal force. The tidal force causes Earthβ€”and its waterβ€”to bulge out on the side closest to the moon and the side farthest from the moon. These bulges of water are high tides.

Pic from internet

About 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water and 29% of Earth’s surface is land. And our bodies too are predominately water πŸ˜‡

According to H.H. Mitchell, Journal of Biological Chemistry 158, the brain and heart are composed of 73% water, and the lungs are about 83% water. The skin contains 64% water, muscles and kidneys are 79%, and even the bones are watery: 31%.

And if moon can cause tides in mighty oceans, just imagine what it can and do to our bodies, which are predominantly WATER

I understand that planet Mars would move to Aquarius ♒️ from Capricorn on the 5th of May; and God willing this would bring some relief.

Difficult times/ Challenges all over the world had started with Lunar Eclipse on the 10th of January in Capricorn ♑️ and this phase would end on the 4-5th of June : the next Lunar Eclipse in Gemini β™ŠοΈ

This is not the last of the year though; there is one more lunar eclipse on 29-30th November; Followed by a Total Solar Eclipse on the 14th of December. That I feel should be the end of this current difficult period.

I Pray, and I Hope, and I Believe that : The current virus situation would end on the 23rd of September, when Rahu leaves Mercury.

We shall all breathe a huge sigh of relief and would be grateful that God has heard our prayers. But would that mean the end of our problems? Doesn’t look like. Rahu enters Taurus ♉️ on the 23rd of September and next 18 months would be very challenging for Indian subcontinent.

At times like these our innate soul qualities of goodness and compassion and kindness come out. They always do: in all natural disasters! And now we are all in it together and our interconnectedness is more perceptible at this time.

But when we go back to our earlier normal world: Once again our competitive spirit would take over and our goodness and compassion would get pushed down (not for all and not the same intensity – as all of us are uniquely different!) So those would be, I would say, even tougher times in a very subtle way. And they will last till about end of next year.

These were and are: difficult times, astrologically, and not only Corona! For most countries for most people : Financial, Health, Relationships – anything and everything.

Do read my blog post of 15th January : Living in Today’s World beset with Turmoil.

Paramahansa Yogananda, author of The Autobiography of a Yogi, has said that astrology is scientific but not easily understood. And that we have the power, we have the consciousness to transcend and mitigate the effect of the planetary movements.

We do not go through difficulties or good times because we were born at a particular time in a particular place; but we were born in that particular time and place because of our past karma ( had discussed it in a little more detail in my last year’s post : Life is a Cocktail) Whatever is happening in our lives: Good, bad or ugly; is our own creation – individual as well as mass karma, cause and effect.

Paramahansa Yogananda had also said that we are in a period of transition to a higher age; and he foresaw (decades back) that in the course of this transition, we would pass through some challenging times.

But he emphasized that those difficulties can be mitigated, and will ultimately be overcome, by the efforts of all who strive to think of God and to express His goodness in their lives.

God is Love; His plan for creation can be rooted only in love….Every saint who has penetrated to the core of Reality has testified that a divine universal plan exists and that it is beautiful and full of joy.

So let us go forward with courage and cooperate with that divine plan by using constructively the power of our thoughts and the will to help ourselves and others, and to Pray for all, because that is the Highest we can do.

In doing so we will not only hasten our own soul’s evolution but contribute toward the positive change that is gradually taking place all over the world.

God is Love and Love is all there is πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•

Meditation/Faith/Pray: Cure for all human suffering – Any day any time.

Fear and Faith can’t co-exist. Let us deepen and strengthen our faith πŸ™πŸ™

Let us be cautiously courageous!

But whatever you do or whatever your beliefs : Don’t take life so seriously! It is just a Reality Show!

Seriously – we know so little πŸ˜‡ Keep it simple – Just be happy and spread happiness 😊

Churches in Montreal and Museum of Fine Arts πŸ’•πŸ™

Notre Dame Basilica- Was The first neo gothic church in Canada and is so beautiful. But St. Joseph Basilica is equally serene and beautiful. Loved spending time in both these.

I love meditating in churches and other places of worship during my travels. Always peaceful and uplifting. These two were even more so ❀️ I also love meditating in nature : on river banks, in hills and gardens πŸ’•

πŸ™ Nippy clicked some pics of mine while I was meditating, unaware of what was going around me πŸ˜‡

Previous posts : Montreal with Love and Graffiti in Montreal

Some redevelopment work was going on around St. Joseph Basilica. Approach and surroundings would become better in the months to come

There was a special exhibition of Egyptian Mummies going on at the Museum of Fine Arts. Great experience πŸ’•πŸ˜‡
