Training the brain to become the hands of Light

“Why are only a few students blessed with Light when Guruji sprinkles Tirtha (holy water)?”, that’s a question a lot of people ask.

In this world there are many Masters.  From the living Guru, the holy book Guru, the symbolic Guru and the secret Master.  This visible light belongs to the symbolic Guru.

To take note, it takes a high level of intelligence to interpret the presence of a symbolic Guru.  Not everyone can do it.

Regarding the appearance of Light, it usually occurs at night.  If it happens during the day, it’s kind of special.  The thing to watch out for, do not allow it to give birth to arrogance.  Again do not.

Use it as a power to perfect our own service.  The master in the sky was pleased to show himself.  The next task, be one of the hands of the Light in this world.

Since the brain is a very important organ in this day and age, let’s train the brain to become one of the hands of Light.  Not as one of the hands of danger.

First, keep this message deep inside: “What hurts actually bless you”.  What hurts you is actually making you happy.

This is the outermost fence of the brain so it will not become the hands of danger.  Even pain is a blessing.  Pain tells many important things.

From foods that shouldn’t be eaten, unhealthy social environments, ways of thinking that need to be improved, to being closer to your inner self.

Second, grow from the logic of hard stone (read: I am right and the others are wrong), to the logic of water which is flexible.  Remember, everything in nature is relative.

Richard Rorty in “Philosophy and the mirror of nature” is right when he concludes, truth is like a broken mirror.  It is scattered everywhere.

As someone who is no longer young enough I can say that Rorty’s conclusion is worth contemplating.  Third, train the brain every day without any stop.  Anywhere and with anyone.

Here’s a recommended weekly brain training schedule.  Monday, learn to forgive.  Especially on weekends, usually a lot of bad things happen.

Tuesday, train yourself to be full of acceptance inside.  No human being is perfect.  Even holy souls make mistakes.  Once you are full of acceptance on the inside, there is a good chance that you will be accepted on the outside.

Wednesday, beautify yourself with love in action. Again in action.  Love knows no religion, but love is worshiped in all religions.

Thursday, water the garden of the soul inside with kindness.  Start with goodness inside, then radiate it outward.  At least through a beautiful smile.

Friday, deepen the soul by practicing compassion.  If love focuses on making other people happy, compassion is willing to suffer for the happiness of others.

Saturday, take time to meditate.  If you can’t sit down, just use everything that happens as a reminder to return to the pause between two breaths.

Sunday, lift up the journey of the soul with peace. It is the highest wealth, the wealth that no one can steal, as well as the highest vibration that can be achieved by the human body.

May all beings be happy.  May all beings be happy.  May all beings be happy.  May all beings be happy.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
