your question to Baba HERE
Renunciation is neither accumulating
anything nor abandoning anything. It is
living the life that God has destined upon you with equanimity of mind, always
fixing your mind on the lotus feet of the Lord. Spirituality is the subject that
bestows that equanimity of mind.
Spirituality is not something that feeds your
monetary desires, sets your health problems right or attends to psychological
problems. Spirituality has been confused with materialism, psychology and
medical science. Spirituality aims at conferring on you, an umbrella that
will see you through the summers and winters of your life. This is the language of
spirituality. This is the language Siva Shankar Baba speaks. A true Gnaani does
not get disturbed by anything that happens in life.
If you are steadfast in your commitment to
attain wisdom, then you will attain it.
What you need to understand immediately and retain forever is that
spirituality guides you to who you are, by imbibing this wisdom in you, by
granting you equanimity of mind.

Human beings are more comfortable with shortcut methods;
so they seek the help of tantrics or astrologers. I am not blaming you; I know
that this is what has been made out to you over the years as spirituality. What
I want to clarify to you is that spirituality has nothing to do with this. It
focuses on the Absolute Truth, the knowledge of what God is, and how to attain
God who is within you. There is nothing called rich or poor or healthy or
sick. Life is a big drama and all of us
have a variety of roles to play.
If God is able to do good for you, will He not
care for those beggars you meet in plenty at pilgrim centers? But He decides
the right time. Each one to his experience and no experience is to be glorified
or negated. Some persons like sweets, and some others relish hot food. Each one
to his taste. Just accept everything as an experience. It is the projection of
the mind that flashes objects on the screen. Once you switch off the projector,
you do not see anything on the screen. The same is true of life too. Switch off
your mind and become blank, you will reach a state of no-thoughts: Nirvana.
No person has been totally happy or absolutely
sad. Learn to laugh at life without getting too much involved in it. It is this
vehicle of human life that is transporting you to salvation. How can you distance
yourself from it? Every one of us is destined to attain salvation, in various
forms, in various ways and at various points in time, spanning across several
eons. You are not what you presume yourself to be.
for all your questions
