TRUST and FAITH (Part 2)

BELIEF IN GOD

An Eagle

What does TRUST mean? It means to have confidence, or faith in someone or something. To have trust in God, you need to experience God, otherwise it will not be true for you. How do we experience God? When you were a child you trusted your parents, you asked them for what you wanted. You knew that they loved you, and will give you what you need in your best interest. Now, if you have a belief in God, you can communicate to God through prayer. If your prayer materialises what you had prayed for, would it not give you confidence? You might literally experience God, depending on the grace you have. This will build your trust and faith in God.

TOLERANCE

There are those who have been traumatised by life experiences and have lost their faith in God. There are others who belief in Science and their scientific methods, that is, there is no evidence for God.  God is not something that can be measured or weighed. It is an experience in consciousness. The mind is powerful and if you believe that God does not exist, it will become your reality. If this is your reality then, how can you experience God? The mind will block it. We can accept those who don’t believe, for where they are at. We are not there to evangelise, and no amount of talking is going to convince them. They have made their mind up. Isn’t tolerance a spiritual virtue?

BRAHMAN (The ONE)

Once you have your experience you must let go of your doubts, or it will weaken your trust and faith. God is Love. As you follow this path you will experience God as Love at different levels of consciousness. It is indescribable, words cannot begin to express this experience. Yet there are those who have no experience, but are quick to put forward their idea of what Love, or Truth is. This is their limited idea of Love and Truth from their minds perspective, which is their experience. In Sanskrit, ‘Brahman’ is the absolute Truth, the ONE. From ‘Brahman’ comes Love, which manifests as all of creation. We are part of this creation; therefore, we are embodiments of Love. This is the truth of who we are.

YOU ARE LOVE

Ravana (A Rakshasa)

In this Kaliyuga (Age of darkness), most people behave like ‘Rakshasas’ (demonic beings). They lie, cheat and hurt others, which have become innate tendencies, although their true reality is Love. They have forgotten this truth which lies deep within them. Even when they are reminded of the Truth, it only lasts for a short time, because in this age we are constantly buffeted by, negative global emotions, negative television programs, violent movies, negative people around us and our negative tendencies. We must constantly battle against them.

Goddess Sita

The experience here on Earth develops your wisdom so that you may start seeing, that you are an embodiment of Love. As you know, constant exercise builds up your muscles, so this experience strengthens your ‘spiritual muscles’. It is Love that knows, Love that sees and Love that tolerates. You are Love.

TRUST and FAITH (Part 1)

Every one of us are on a journey to Source, back to where we came from. The experiences on Earth gives you the wisdom and understanding to create a peaceful and happy journey in this life. To have a peaceful and happy life you need trust and faith in God. God is LOVE and TRUTH. It takes hundreds of lives before you reach your destination. People want peace and happiness, but they don’t believe in God. They think that the mind is all they need to depend on.

This is due to the people’s trust largely in Science at present, which has taken the reins of driving people’s minds and their beliefs. Science perceives God as a delusion, because from their point of view there is no evidence to proof the existence of God. People have lost their confidence in religion and other spiritual organisations because their leaders are corrupted by sex, money and power. To go through the travails that exist in our daily life we need the guidance from God. The guidance only exists if you have faith, trust and the belief in God.

The Truth

In this climate of scientific dominance, it has become more difficult to have a peaceful life. There appears to be a cornucopia of machines for our convenience, but this is a delusion. Instead of bringing peace of mind, it has brought addictions, dependence, loss of our power in various ways. Life has become competitive for jobs and education and the incessant desire to accumulate wealth and possessions. Stress has become prevalent, with increased depressions and other mental illness among the population.

The truth is that our so-called conveniences and scientific beliefs have distanced us from our true reality of who we are. Our true nature is LOVE and TRUTH. Instead of connecting within, people are looking outside themselves and getting caught in a spiraling loop of delusion, thinking that the truth is in the external world. They forget to ask for the guidance (of God) within themselves to navigate the trials of modern life. Without this guidance there is no peace or happiness. Only the delusion that wealth and their desires will make them happy.

Liberating Partnerships – Drawing on Grace

18th June 2013

Several years ago (in 1995), Eddie and I were brought together by our Beloved Guru, Sri Satya Sai Baba. Little did we know that we would one day be co-creating LiberatingTouch® , writing books, facilitating seminars, and connecting with so many extraordinary people.

Getting here was not easy and for the first 9 years we were not sure if we could sustain a relationship let alone be partners. What kept us going was the knowledge that we were put together by God (the Perfection of Love and Truth). We had to learn the art of communication, sacrifice, patience, trust and understanding. Through our tussles and adventures together we developed greater insight into the personalities we had adopted, the desires and fears that lead us away from each other and the attachments that muddied our vision. The next 9 years were easier, still challenging at times, but we had more clarity, willingness and humility to let go and stay open. As I write this, I wonder what the next 9 years have in store for us. It’s very exciting.

Eddie and I have noticed that when we come together, we form a conduit to access Grace. The Grace we experience manifests as wisdom, abundance, understanding and the means for Self-Realisation (for example LiberatingTouch®). We draw and share that Grace. Everyone we connect with in turn can use this for themselves and others. They too then create liberating partnerships and draw on Grace.

Nowadays

we work with people that are intent on creating Liberating Partnerships. When working with couples Eddie and I focus on helping them find ways to listen, and dialogue. We show them how to use Jin Shin Jyutsu and LiberatingTouch®, which can act as a healing balm. Our first goal when working with a couple is to find something that is relaxing for both partners and something that they both enjoy doing, before we dive into their stressful stories. We explain that the way we work is for partners to discover what makes them happy and what saddens them and find ways to heal in order that they can continue to grow. After the sessions they either grow closer or they grow in different directions, the focus is on self-knowledge, awareness, freedom, friendship and self-fulfillment.

One of the most difficult challenges in any relationship is that of accepting each other’s limitations. When we accept these limitations somehow, we open the door to limitless honesty, love and possibility. This is the paradox of all relationship.

Here are 4 vital requirements for creating a Liberating Partnership:

  1. Letting go of Expectation (Developing Understanding)
  2. Sharing Responsibility
  3. Communicating Honesty, Integrity and Trust
  4. Self Confidence

Yes, you are going to be, feel and think differently (and sometimes at odds) from your partner, that is a given, what draws the miraculous and mysterious magic into a relationship is the inner yearning for UNITY, oneness with Love and Truth. At the heart of our partnership is the undying Love that longs to know and merge in Truth. The song the river sings on its way to the ocean.

Love, love and more love, Ranjana
