“The Vision Should Be Set In The Right Direction, And Then There Will Not Be Any Problem In This World.”
All the sufferings start from vision of wrong direction. And if we want to be happy, the vision should be set in the right direction, and then there will not be any problem in this world. Develop a positive vision and always find out something good from everything and everyone. Everybody has definitely something that can be appreciated, we only need to apply positive vision and appreciate others. Let us see what Gnani say's......
Pujyashree: What is the source of all sufferings in this world? The answer is “wrong vision”, “vision of wrong direction. All the sufferings start from vision of wrong direction. And if we want to be happy, the vision should be set in the right direction, and then there will not be any problem in this world. What does the intellect do in every situation? It finds negative things. See he got four jalebees (a sweet dish). I was given one!!!” the start of suffering.
Hey guys, you got at least one, so enjoy it. Other guys did not get even one”. But he will say, “I got only one, he got four. They are not giving more”. What does the negative insight show? He got four, I got one. This is negative sight. Later, when he notices, “Many did not get jalebees at all, but I got at least one!’’ then he will be happy. This is positive sight. Intellect induces unhappiness in every situation by seeing negatives and then he will be (make himself) unhappy and also make other unhappy. This is Dadashri’s marvelous discovery; to find one positive among hundred negatives. If one focuses only on that positive point, then the situation which would not let sufferings affect us internally. It cannot happen (almost impossible) that all external situations improve and we remain happy, so, change the understanding in such a way that, we do not get affected internally. Bhagwan Mahavir used to teach his disciple that, if someone is yelling at you, insulting you by saying appalling (ghastly) things and someone is hitting you twice with a stick, and then which one will you tolerate? Let us assume, someone is telling you wrong words twice and someone is hitting you with stick twice, and at that time you were asked, which type of mistreatment (abuse) you would allow – bad words or beating with stick? Would you say “beating with stick?”
Pujyashree: Why? That will hurt and you can ignore bad words. So what we would tolerate?
Questioner: Listening to two insulting words will be okay.
Pujyashree: Yes… would not you say that, “I will just not take that into an account! Say four instead of two!” No problem, don’t beat with a stick. My get might get broken or if you hit me on head or eyes? My eyes will get damaged. Will we take such risk? So, if someone is verbally abusing us, if we think that this is less awful than being beaten up by a stick, then will we not remain calm? And you bump into a burglar on the way and he say, I will hit you with a stick or I will stab you with a knife, what will you allow?
Pujyashree: Yes… Beat me up with the stick, brother! We will think that if he stabs me with a knife, my intestine might be cut and I will die. So, being beaten up by stick is better than being cut by a knife. Then will we not feel less suffering? So, we must decide that, “I want to find positive points in all situations!” then, there will not be any unhappiness (then we will not be unhappy). Even after a loss of Rs. 20 Lakhs, these people will say, “Those people have lost Rs. 80 Lakhs! We have lost Rs. 20 Lakhs. By thinking like this they remain in peace. See, what a positive insight (Isn't that positive vision)!!It provides peace for all situations I things. The ability to be positive has to be developed. That is weakness; that if someone does your insult, then you verbally abuse him and then quarrel with him and get into a fight, is called weakness. To face an insult with equanimity is a sign of great strength. How do you bring about that equanimity? Answer is, with right understanding. If we gain an understanding, that does not let us feel sufferings, the pain will disappear and we will be able to bear that. That can be achieved with understanding. Dada Bhagwan’s whole science is about getting hold of the right understanding.
The Vision should be set in the right direction, and then there will not be any problem in this world.
