How to Balance Sadhana and Worldly Duties | Swami Mukundananda | JKYog Retreat Q&A


the question is that my doing business
how you engage in service is it merely by giving in charity there are three
levels of service done on and month the highest service is in the mind to hold
the thought I wish to give happiness to God and guru and with that intention you
do your works below that is with the body engaged the
body in service and even below that is to give it wealth what you are earning
you give a fraction of it so that is the lowest higher is bodily serviced highest
is mana see now some people say ok are given my mind so don’t ask for anything
else if you had actually given your mind you would have given your all so to
serve in the mind is the most difficult people say I am NOT able to engage my
mind answers alright then you do the next best engage the body in service
take some time out go to the gurus ashram or whatever where you know you
use the body in service people say I don’t have time with my body because I
have got an 8 to 7 job alright then what you are working you take the fruit of
bat and give it its service so that is the third step the lowest you take the
fruit and give it in service as you keep doing it you will develop this
consciousness that I need to use my body in service
and when you start using the body in service the mind will come on the
spiritual realm and you will develop this thought process I wish to give God
and guru happiness so the step begins from below in other words you start by
offering the fruit of your business and then move ahead from there duties are at two levels what is the
level of the body one is the level of the soul at the level of the body you
have your duties to your parents relative society and everything at the
level of the soul you have your duty to God now people say duty to parents is it God
our actual parent everybody all of you go into the temple and see if I’m able
attached at the top for me well God you alone are my father you
alone are my mother and then you ask mommy to your question let’s ABBA G what
is my duty to my parents so I asking about God are you asking about the
worldly pet nosology that is only to say I don’t believe it
so if you have a duty to your worldly parents don’t you have a millionfold
more duty to others your spiritual merit the calm yogi does both the karni hogi
is one who’s discharging the worldly duties and also going towards God okay
in my estimation most of you are doing both the problem here is not that you
are not doing your duties to the parents the problem is that you’re too much on
that side in other words the worldly relatives are all important and God is
put in the one-percent category that is the problem that so you need to create
the balance your duty is first and foremost duty is to purify yourself you
are first and foremost duty is to make your life a success
by attaching your mind to God and then everything falls into place so become a
true karma yogi by learning to love your spiritual parent that is God and then
you will continue doing your duty to the world appearances that and some people
they take Culberson the odds that is a small section of society the cognizant
we are see out of pass some scars or whatever renounces says I’ve got nothing
to do with the world and that karma said galaxy then sees God as everything that
part of karma sanyasa is also there but as you see in society 99.99% of the
people take the path of Carioca some people have a soft heart it melts
on both sides it marries for God and the shape years and it melts for the world
Israel they’re also – eight years so we keep going plus minus plus minus plus
minus some people have a hard heart it will be lamented the world are meant for
God these are all sons cars coming from the past the state of your heart the
mind but but – elevation is cartoonion vision create drama from bhagavati let
your mind become hardened the world in other words practice detachment practice
to be unaffected make your mind like that in the world if somebody cuts his
head and gives you look I love you so much I am giving this to you don’t
believe it everybody is selfish everybody is doing that drama for their
happiness and they’re telling you I love you for your happiness
so in the world beware use your intellect until God realization
everybody’s selfish nobody loves me and if the spiritual realm drop the
intellect have faith in God and grew softened the mind and increase the love
for that is the way to move ahead
