#relationship are the #doors of #selfillumination !
Profoundly stated by someone that 'Its a real #help that you help a person knowing that he will never help you back'. If we can conquer our #reactive #behavior and live in great #harmony with each other at every #role in personal and #professional life then we got it ! Surely we have to get to the roots of such #conflicting behavior and peel off each layer. It requires lot of dedicated work...it's real #sadhna !#why ? Well, we dont live isolated lives and its never that we dont require anything from each other. #existence is an eco-system, the #interdependence is but obvious. Relationships are the #ordeals in which we rise as pure beings. We know the story of a sadhu who stays alone at mountains meditating for years and years and when he thinks he now has conquered anger comes down among the people...he was passing thru a fair where he meets his childhood friend. The friend asks the sadhu about his achievement and the sadhu replies that he doesnt get #angry anymore. But the friend perhaps doesnt hear the reply clearly due to the noise around and asks the same thing repeatedly. upon which the sadhu loses the control and angrily says, "How many times should i tell you that i dont get angry anymore?" At the mountains there was no one around so the anger, fear, jealousy, lust etc was not #triggered. But the world is full of such triggers. We can't run away from the people in personal as well as professional lives. We have a role to play which we must play as #nimitmatra i.e. without #doesrship like awakened Arjun upon listening to Lord Krishna did happily.
So, can we feel the profundity of Jesus Christ when he prays to God while he was crucified that 'God please forgive them for their ignorance because they dont know what they are doing!' God asked Prahlad to make wish and it will be given. Prahlad requests God to give a boon if at all to give and says to God, " Please dont punish the people who have troubled me.' God asks, 'Why should i not?" Prahlad, 'Because they too are your own aspects...its ONLY you my Lord! And how can i see your parts getting punished." Wow ! What an #attitude !
