हिन्दी में धारणा-वाचन : इला देढिया
During this month of May 2023, I’ve been meditating every day with the dharanas on Baba’s teachings that are posted under “Teachings to Live By.” During the day I try to practice that day’s teaching in my life.
On May 24, two phrases in Baba’s teaching stood out for me: “Let your forbearance increase” and “You are a portion of God.” As I was practicing “Let your forbearance increase,” I realized some “little” forms of intolerance happen when I don’t like something that someone says to me, or when I’m driving and reach a traffic jam. I saw this intolerance causes a kind of “inner grip” that creates tension within me.
When this happened again, I remembered Baba’s teaching and let the feeling of intolerance release out of me; I then felt great relief. In fact, I felt contentment arising and remembered that I am “a portion of God.” Gratitude sprouted in my heart. I also realized that tolerance is about not being judgmental.
I thank Baba for this precious teaching.
