Weight-lifting in Gym
« on: October 08, 2009, 11:23:57 AM »
Why do people go to Gym and do weight-lifting?  It is only
by practising lifting of heavy objects, one gets greater
muscle power and remain healthy.  Weight is lifted not to
make the weight, more muscular!

The world is also like this.  It is like a bent tail of a dog
or a weight.  We deal with the world only to attain mental
strength, capacity to struggle against heavy odds, to attain
more perseverence and tolerance and calmness. 

We do this shadow boxing only to gain our boxing skills.
No one can change the world and make it happier.  Great
reformers have done this and have failed.

For this, one has to totally repose faith in Guru.  Because
Guru is beyond world, beyond the concept of Space.  He is
also beyond time, in the eternal NOW.  They are such great
personalities that they need no training from the world.

Arunachala Siva.
