The psychology of attraction

  • The psychology of people is to develop an attraction towards things that are far away, and to get detached from things which are very close. In fact, this is the general psychology of souls and even angels are not exceptions as said in the Veda ‘Paroksha Priya ivahi devah pratyaksha dvishah’, which means that even angels like any item that is far away and dislike any item present before their eyes.

    This is the reason that God keeps earnest seekers in close association of a worldly atmosphere and keeps Himself far from us. Whatever God does, it is always meaningful and we criticize God without understanding Him in depth. You should always be closely associated with the items from which you want detachment. You should always keep yourself far from the items towards which you want to maintain your attraction.

    When the item existing away from you becomes closely associated, your attraction towards it starts diminishing. This is the reason for one’s repulsion towards a contemporary human incarnation, who exists before your very eyes. Similarly, the reason for the attraction towards past human incarnations and energetic incarnations of God, which are related to the upper worlds, is that these forms are not before your eyes.

    Two devotees were traveling to the city of Varanasi to worship Lord Shiva. One of them was attracted by a prostitute and stopped at her house before reaching Varanasi. The other person went to Varanasi and worshiped Lord Shiva for the rest of his life. Both died on the day of Shivaratri. However, the person in Varanasi was always mentally attracted to the prostitute. He constantly thought about what his friend was doing. Similarly, the person who was with the prostitute was always attracted to Lord Shiva. He constantly began to think about his friend in Varanasi. Finally, the messengers of Yama took the person who died in Varanasi to hell, whereas the messengers of Lord Shiva took the person who died in the prostitute’s house to the abode of Lord Shiva.

  • जय साईं राम
    This post reminds me of yesterday's discourse on this topic (viyog is better than sanyog and how bhagwan krishna use this to increase bhkti & love in his devotees)
    Its right,
    विप्रलम्भ ,संयोग श्रृंगार से अधिक प्रेम बढ़ाता
    समीपता दोष दर्शन कराती हैं, स्थूलता में फसा देती हैं।
    संसार में हर चीज़ दूर से अच्छी लगती हैं पर मिलने पर वह सुख नही देती, क्यू की असली जरूरत तो हमे सनातन आनन्द की हैं जो भगवद प्राप्ति से ही हैं, और भगवान भी हमारी दर्शन की इच्छा पूरी नही करते की हम वियोग में तड़पे , उसके प्रेम को तरसे कभी कभी प्रेमानंद की झलक देते हैं प्रभु ताकि हम पूर्णत: हार भी न मान लें और उसे पाने की चाह में तड़पते रहे ।।।।
    जिस कर्म से भगवद प्रेम और भक्ति बढ़े वही सार्थक उद्योग हैं।
    ॐ साईं राम
