ARE YOU MERE HUSK OR THE GRAIN? 你僅是稻殼還是稻穀(穗)
你的生命應該是快快樂樂的。所有的日常工作都有起伏，而這些都是自然的。如果有個身體，它會感冒、咳嗽、發燒或是其它別的，然後它會離開。但是，你要仔細地去了解，快樂一直都根植在你內在，這就是所知的purashaartha。我們的愛、信心和信念都要根深地固；然後其他的就會自己運行著。（全文完）（取自古儒吉《Know your Mind》pp55-58）
ARE YOU MERE HUSK OR THE GRAIN?
During the time of reaping the harvest, the farmer holds a broad sieve and puts all the grain into it and stands on an elevated platform and shakes the sieve. What happens when that is done? Have you seen this scene? What happens? If it is mere husk, it just flies away in the air and is lost. If grain is present, then it falls to the ground and stays.
So too in our life, we must have faith. What? Faith. Faith is something which we have inside us. When many situations surface in life, are you able to face all of them with peace, with a stable mind and faith? If you do not have faith, if you go into fear, then you will fly away into the air, like the husk. You will be nowhere. You will not have anything to hold onto. Such people will have no value at all.
if you have faith, you will be able to find ground. When you have faith that every thing be alright, when you are in peace, then everything will settle down.
God expects only one thing from you, “Your unshakeable faith.” If your faith shakes very quickly, if it keeps shaking too often, or if you realize that you do not have any faith at all when difficulty strikes, then it is akin to being like the husk. The rest is whether” you are mere husk or the grain “?
How many events take place in life! Many situations arise. Are you able to maintain your equanimity in those conditions? Your work is to maintain your equanimity in this world. Not everything in the world is sweet; something are sweet and something are bitter. If you are grounded with faith like the husk with grain, then you will progress. The grounded grains are gathered in a sack and replanted else where or used in some manner.
Take this decision,” Whatever happens I will be there. I will be grounded. God’s protection is there on me. Whatever happens, I will never go down. I always have God’s hand with me.” This much is enough to pull you up. Keep your mind in peace in all situations. It is enough if that much is done by you. We will take care of everything else.
Maintain your equanimity. You have to do only this. It is not right if you have to do everything and you do nothing. Not possible. You have to take at least one step forward. Be in peace and equanimity. ” Oh, nothing happened. None of my work happened. “- if you are able to laugh in such situation, then understand that you have protection with you. The world is filled with love. Everybody has love inside them. You have to see that in your mind.
Have you ever seen with this view? Whenever you are in a crowd, have you ever watched the crowd and thought in your mind that ‘ all is love’? Once think in this manner and look, either today or tomorrow or some some day. Even now there is a crowd. Just once look at everybody in this crowd and feel the love present in everybody.
The whole world is a celebration. Fair happens here constantly, celebration happeds here everyday. Parrot, cuckoo and other birds sing and play naadaswaram (a South Indian traditational instrument like a trumpet). All the birds play naadaswaram. Procession is moving constantly. We are idols who are moving in the procession. So for once think that everybody is love.
You should be happy in life. All other business involve ups and downs; all that is natural. If there is a body, then it will get a cold, cough, fever or something else and it will go away. But take care to see that happiness is always established in you. That is known as purashaartha. Our love, faith and belief should be deep-rooted; then everything else moves on its own.
