Positive thinking: Power of stillness

We like to be with some people and prefer to stay away from some.

We like to be with some people and prefer to stay away from some. This is because people who are at peace or are shaant create a serenity around and one feels good in their presence whereas people who are ashaant or disturbed create disturbance wherever they go and send signals to people to stay away.

This is due to the difference in positive and negative vibrations. Birds of feather do flock together, people with similar vibrations like each others’ company. This is why some people love chaos while some prefer stillness.

If there is a coin at the bottom of a river bed, it can only be seen if the water is clear and still. Slight ripples and waves affect the clear view. Similarly, if a person is disturbed, he or she will not be able to take any concrete decision and will remain in a state of conflict and turmoil while creating more disturbance within and all around.
The key to shaanti is stilling the brain, taking  it to a state of no thought. Our thoughts are linked to the movement of the eyeballs.

The basis of thoughts is desires. It is impossible for a normal person to try to achieve complete stillness by meditating on one’s own. The process is long and needs a Guru’s guidance. That is the reason why Rishi Patanjali propagated the eight limbed yog on which the Sanatan Kriya is based.

The power of the person who is able to sit absolutely still in a thoughtless state is unimaginable. Anything is possible for such a being. That is the state when all ripples have died down and the vision is crystal clear.

This state of being absolutely still reveals dimensions which are beyond logical explanation. Even one thought, movement or a slightest twitch will distort the vision.

Find your Guru today without falling prey to clever businessmen selling “meditation or yoga “. Let your Guru guide you to this blissful state of shaanti.
