Query: How is it possible for a conscious and compassionate being to find joy in
this world? I have meditated and prayed about this continuosly for years without
When I was an insect in one of my earliest manifestations I may
have wanted to become a human being and enjoy life. When I became a plant further on I still wanted to become
a human being and enjoy life. Subsequently I became an animal yet I wanted to become a human being and enjoy
life. Now I have taken birth as a human being ... yet enjoyment in life eludes me. Why? Am I not in harmony
with my inner being! Do I look at things from purely physical point of view.
I am a conscious being ... I have Realized God, yet I am nearest to
Humanity for I am now not only connected with the physical World but the World within everybody. Having known
the nature of atman the soul within I am now an extremely happy men ... not mere external happiness but that
feeling of Ananda which only one in a billion practices and comes across.
Remaining out of harmony with your innerself ... you are doing great injustice to atman the soul within you. The
body of Carl Grant has not been taken by Carl Grant but by atman the soul within. It is Atman which is on its
journey of purification and you have just to abide by it. If you practice what it dictates you are a happy man ...
if not you are the most dejected.
Every member of your family is on its path which is totally independent
of each other. No Atman soul is ever connected to one another. Why would other members of your family try to
understand you ... they have their goals of life to accomplish. In a family all try to help one another but
not on the cost of their goal.
This rarely happens in a country you belong to. In India it is a usual
practice. You shall find so many sacrificing their lives for the sake of another... no dearth of instances!
Never try to impose on anyone what you think is best for you. You are a Spiritual person but other members of
the family may belong to this materialistic World ... what is bad about it ... one is in class two ...
another in seven and yet another in twelfth.
All have to pass-through the various manifestations which is fixed for
all ... 8.4 million in total. Right from the day we started on this Cosmic journey as an amobae till we
achieve Salvation ... the last leg of the journey.
If you really need to know what peace is all about ... you need to study
and assimilate Bhagavad Gita ... the most sacred document existing on Mother Earth. Lord Krishna who came 1500
years before Jesus Christ gave the Doctrine of Bhagavad Gita To King Arjuna in the battle of Mahabharata. This Doctrine
explains in totality what life is all about ... how from the primordial times ... the time of the Big Bang
when God splits himself and all atmans souls get scattered all over the Cosmos only to begin their journey
again. These independent Atmans souls have no other alternative but to manifest life again and again until
they regain absolute purity.
The journey of 8.4 million manifestations is a long one (approx. 9.64
million earthly years). The moment we reach the form of a human being indicates we have already covered a
journey of approx. 7.8 million manifestations. The manifestation as a human being being the highest in the
Cosmos what can be more virtuous. As per Hinduism Scriptures even Gods living in Heaven long for it ... for
even they cannot achieve Salvation without having being born as a human being ... it is only and only in form
of a human being can one achieve Salvation.
Peace is what Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King practiced. One must first establish peace with innerself before
we can broker peace between others. and why would you want to establish peace on earth ...Such can be a goal for a
King of a nation ... you only need to understand yourself first. Bhagwan Mahavira and Gautama Buddha
could practice peace only after they had Realized God and attained Cosmic wisdom. Such was the power of Mahavira
and Buddha that even if two animals were fighting ... they used to calm down if Mahavira or Buddha passed
I shall narrate one incident wherein a lion was about to pounce on a cow.
The moment Mahavira passed by the feeling of killing the cow immediately vanished from the thought process of
the lion and it started behaving as if it was a vegetarian.

You must go through the definition of Meditation and Yoga in the Glossary
on my homepage to understand their correct meaning. Once you start practicing correct form of Meditation ...
all your problems would vanish. In short, Meditation is nothing but the effort of your true self (the I
within) trying to establish contact with the bigger I, the universal I of the Almighty Creator.
May God you strength to eliminate all that is negative and understand the positive aspect of life!

Full text of query: How is it possible for a conscious and compassionate being to find joy in
this world? I fail to see how anyone who feels Spiritually connected to all that is can help but feel guilty
and even suicidal with all the unconsciousness, separatism, survivalism, etc. resulting in so much pain and
suffering. I feel so alone and so helpless because I can't relate this to hardly anyone including my family.
I have meditated and prayed about this continuosly for some years now. All I want to do is give my life for
peace and unconditional love, but nothing I can think of seems to be enough. I would appreciate your thoughts
on this. I send you peace and love.
