I derive my motivation from the inner chat!

Basically, I am a chatterbox. So whenever I have no one outside to talk to, the machinery immediately switches within and my inner chat begins. And I thoroughly enjoy it, for it not only motivates me, but also delights me, energizes me and nurtures me beyond imagination!

At times, when I am feeling low and have no clue where to go, a small chit-chat within provides me the right direction, and I’m ready to go. At times, when I see or hear something extra-ordinary, I HAVE to do a quick sharing within, and that’s so very enlightening! At times when fear grips me, it leads me into seeing that fear eye-to-eye, and then brings me out safely, with fear gone completely, And in those critical moments when my body refuses to cooperate and my brain fails to operate, from my memory too, things have started to evaporate, at that time the chat within gets invoked automatically, by the end of which, it has filled my being with wisdom, and also, my body feels rejuvenated, my brain’s got rewired and my thoughts, feelings and behavior have been energized. Now, isn’t that magic? It certainly is!
So who is it that this inner chat is with?… am sure you are quite anxious to know it!

Generally, elders advise us to keep company of the elite, isn’t it? But in my case, the company of the enlightened Soul is what attracts me the most.

The divinity of an Enlightened Soul is such that even when not physically around, we feel He is with me. Their presence is not some fantasy or a myth, it is for real. Whoever has their support, never feels unaided. Whenever their mention comes, I always feel a strong sense of belonging and warmth inside.

If I make any mistake, my inner chat gets activated as I have to tell Him first. To Him, I express what I am able to express, but the best part is that, I am assured He has understood the rest. And no matter what mistake I’ve done, I am absolutely sure that He will not mind. On confessing the mistake, His enlightening words automatically open the gateways to come out of those mistakes.

When I am unable to cope up with the circumstances at hand, He tells me, ‘I am here’, and gives me strength. Just two enlightened words of His are enough to motivate anyone weather any situation in life.

When nothing works, His blessings work! But even when everything is working absolutely fine, I notice that the chat is still on and on. Many a times, people may feel, I am alone. No! I am actually there, enjoying then in the divine company zone

It is said that whatever we consistently think about, expands in our life

Very true! Chatting with the Enlightened One instantly shifts our mood because even His sentence or two, changes our entire perspective of the way we see things. Being merely hooked with Him 24 x 7 expands our horizons of wisdom, such that even we feel surprised.

After having him in our life, there’s never a regret about anything that we don’t have. Very often, we hear that money, power, societal status and security, etc., are a driving force in people’s life. I am quite fortunate enough to have been blessed with all of these, in abundance; however these have somehow never enchanted me, because when engaged with an Enlightened being, one has nothing to do with what exists in this world. His oneness is so expansive that we actually experience that the entire world is mine.

When chatting with him, not only do we, but our inner enemies, namely anger, pride, deceit, greed, too sense his divine presence, and instantly calm down. The ego and intellect lose their lust and hence they too surrender.
So, while the inner chat is initially found to be motivating us in the worldly realm, the real joy is when it supports us in the spiritual realm.

So many times, when I seem totally defeated, the enlightened chat pushes me to keep going and never give up, and the chat goes on and on until I see a ray of light at the end of the dark tunnel.

Now what more could you say about this magnanimous grace of the Enlightened One, to whom physical distance doesn’t matter, to whom the amount of ordeals on our path do not matter, to whom the height of mistakes we commit does not matter, what matters to Him is just that, ‘may our happiness be eternal and our sorrows never be the show-stoppers!’

Based on my experience, I earnestly pray to the Enlightened One that, ‘May every living being derive motivation from You, from Your divine presence, and from Your enlightening words’!!!

Author's Bio: 

Ambalal M. Patel was a civil contractor by profession. In June 1958, spontaneous Self-Realization occurred within Ambalal M. Patel. From this point on, Ambalal became a Gnani Purush, and the Lord that manifest within him became known as Dada Bhagwan. A Gnani Purush is One who has realized the Self and is able help others do the same. Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan used to go from town to town and country-to-country to give satsang (spiritual discourse) and impart the knowledge of the Self, as well as knowledge of harmonious worldly interactions to everyone who came to meet him. This spiritual science, known as Akram Vignan, is the step-less path to Self-realization.
