How can I express my love for God today? Part 7 of Solutions coming up

Vatic Note:  I can't stress enough how important it is to read and understand these articles before we can even begin the next leg of our journey.  I want to thank a Sikh reader, currently in Great Britain that sent this to us as a contribution to our effort.  I am glad to see this effort going international. 

You must understand and believe that this is a spiritual journey and war that we are currently engaged in.  There is no doubt about that in my mind when I read all the horrors these evil demons do to little babies and children.   

It leaves no doubt that those doing these acts have no soul and no spirit, so its important that we prepare for battle in the only way that will be effective and that is to understand what the pay off is, and who and what are on both sides of this war.   Good vs Evil is the simplest way to say it.  

We have to let go of our "perceived" reality and go back to who we really are, and use the tools provided to us in meeting the challenges that we are about to face in this ancient battle.  This below is soooo true about our unability to comprehend in real terms and intuitively, who God is and how to get past that inability, through the power of our hearts.   

Read this and know that we are asking you to study how to become the weapon of mass destruction for these evil ones who lack any semblance of a soul.   It is also "the way" to know God on a level we have seldom ever reached, but must do so  now.  Trust me, its the only way.  I genuinely thank this man for his contribution and caring enough to send it.  

FUNDRAISING:   We are getting close to the first of the month and still need $110 to meet our deficit. We would like to thank the person that donated and brought our balance down to such a managable level.    If you can afford it, please donate off to the right of the blog at the paypal button.  Thanks and God Bless you for  helping to keep us  up on the net at this critical time.  


How can I express my love for God today?  Part 7 of Solutions coming up
By Amar Mann,  Sinram dot info

The mind cannot comprehend God or about God. It is by loving we can know him/her (God being genderless) intuitively. Then our daily question on spiritual path should be how can I express my love for God today? What good I can do today?
When our loving obliterates the gap between lover and beloved that means between doer and to be done, we can know God. That is why it is written in Sikh scriptures that he/she himself makes us love him and ultimately unites us. It also implies that God is the doer. The gap between lover, beloved and love needs to go. 

Who can tell whether Guru Nanak loved God or God loved Guru Nanak? And where was the love, when Guru Nanak's whole life was love? When he talked he talked from the love center, when he eat he thanked God in gratitude for food, whatever came it was good for him, it was blessed from God, it was will of God. 

For him it was, Thine, Thine, yours and yours. It also takes away mind's duality, which always separates. The mind often turns us into doer and something needs to be achieved. Instead we need to open our hearts and use them throughout the day. Not just for some person for some time in return to their goodness. And we need to put our mind, the calculator, aside after using it for some purposeful reason. 

Otherwise it just calculates and turns our whole life into calculations; we give some affection back in return to some one's affection. We give gift to someone of the same amount after receiving the gift from that person, otherwise expects the gift in return. We abuse if someone else does. Are not we living just like 2+2 = 4, with calculations, without using our hearts?
To live our loving, we need to express our love for God daily, every moment. It is love for God, by God and from God. In order to achieve this I grouped spirituality into four terms. These are just terms to remind us, point us in the right direction, please do not get attached to them.

By this I mean, let's use our hands to clean some park, as nature also belongs to God. Paint some one's house who cannot afford it. By this we are out there in community trying to take care and in touch with God's nature and God's humanity.

Psychological Spirituality
By this I mean to practice different methods to strengthen our psyche and weaken our mind. To practice not saying 'no' for a day. To spend a day in silence, to resist arguments, listen more often, not to complain etc. By this way we are taking care of mind's clutter.

Religious Spirituality
By this I mean to sing God's praises, meditate and contemplate on God and God's name. To pray and reflect upon divinity. By this way we are awakening the divine within us.

Social Spirituality
By this I mean to be compassionate with family, friends and colleagues with whom we spend most of our day. To be kind, humble, honest at work and home. Not to live selfishly, always try to help and take care of our daily social needs rather than putting on others. By this we are acknowledging divinity of others also.

So knowing God requires a continuum loving, which we need to live and breathe daily. There are no separate compartments, the above classification reminds us the different places to look into to be whole and unite with the whole. 

As Hippocrates emphasized to physicians that 'First do no harm'. The same implies in our lives and is very important thing. Our mind has enough negativity then we combine negativity from history which is centuries old to kill and harm others. The centuries old fights are still fought today, like prosecution of one religious group by other, killing millions of people. So walking on this path, please do remember also, 'First do no harm'. (VN: also remember, do not turn the other cheek if you do get hit, since that will result in massive murders that should never be allowed to take place. If we stay in a state of love and kindness,  our cheek will never get slapped.  I can attest to this from a presonal level of experience.  Why in the world do you think I spend my entire life doing this blog?  Because I love my fellow man and want to preserve that which is magnificient about us through God who made us.  Who ever that might be for everyone.  )
