9:56 pm - Embrace simplicity. Reduce selfishness, Have few desires

Giving up is easy. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength. A single person is strong enough to enjoy life without depending on others.

Just got home from the most boring Xmas party ever,

10:42 pm - True that..

Moksa or liberation is neither a process of annihilating one's individuality as taught by the mayavadis (illusionists) nor does the living entity merge into the great "nothingness" as taught by the atheistic philosophy of the Buddhist nirvana.

Both of these types of impersonal philosophies teach some type of spiritual suicide. But since
the spirit soul is eternal, it cannot be killed by an artificial process of spiritual suicide.

Liberation, as the word implies, is a process of liberating oneself from the false conception of materialistic life. After material cessation, there is the manifestation of spiritual life. In spiritual life the same distinction is there, the same individuality is there, but in pure consciousness, full knowledge and bliss.

Real liberation is, therefore, not an impersonal experience but the attainment of one's eternal spiritual body, free from the contamination of the materialistic ego.

Maya, or illusion, is the condition of spiritual life contaminated by material infection. Liberation from this material infection does not mean destruction of the original eternal position of the living entity. For example, if a person is bound by ropes then he is severely restricted in his free movement. However, when he is freed from his bonds he no longer is conditioned and can move freely wherever he likes. Therefore freedom from his conditioned state does not mean his personal destruction. Similarly liberation, or freedom, from material bondage [mukti] does not mean the destruction of
the individual soul.

Mayavadis are confused by the flowery language of the vedas and compare themselves to little drops of water which dissolve when they merge in the ocean of water. Teaching the philosophy of dissolution they like to commit spiritual suicide by dissolving their individual existence.

Since the soul is sac-cid-ananda, or an eternal spiritual being, full of knowledge and bliss, it can never be annihilated or dissolved. The personalists, or devotees of the Lord, do not like to commit spiritual suicide by dissolving themselves. They prefer to keep their individuality and serve the Supreme Lord in a blissful and loving relationship called devotional service.

Those Mayavadis who compare themselves with water may artificially try to become water by merging into it, but the personalists or devotees enjoy this very same water by playing in it like fishes.

Impersonalists also give the example of a river flowing into the ocean to merge with it. This may be a source of happiness for the impersonalist, but the personalist keeps his personal individuality like an aquatic in the ocean. We find so many living entities within the ocean, if we go below the surface. Surface acquaintance with the ocean's waves alone is not sufficient; one must have complete knowledge of the aquatics living below the waves in the ocean depths. The ocean can be compared to liberation, and the rivers to all the different paths of liberation. The impersonalists are dwelling in the river water which eventually comes to mix with the ocean. They have no information, however, that within the ocean, as within the rivers, there are innumerable living entities like fishes and other aquatic creatures. The devotees of the Supreme Lord are compared to sharks who live in that great ocean. The sharks who dwell in the ocean do not care for the little rivers which are gliding down into it. The devotees eternally live in the ocean of devotional service, and they do not care for the little rivers of impersonal liberation. In other words, those who are pure devotees always remain in the ocean of transcendental loving service to the Lord and have no business with the other processes, which are compared to the rivers that only gradually come to merge with the ocean.

Real devotional liberation is defined as the reinstatement of the living entity in his own identity, his own constitutional position. Every living entity is the part and parcel fragmental portion of the Supreme Lord and eternally related to Him. Therefore his constitutional position is the exchange of transcendental pleasures with the Lord. This natural transcendental pleasure is the ultimate goal of yoga and easily attainable through the process of bhakti-yoga.

For a devotee engaged in bhakti-yoga, liberation is attained automatically without any extra endeavour. This is because all the activities of the Supreme Lord (His Lila) are transcendental to the modes of the material energy. They are all attractive spiritual activities, and therefore constant association with the spiritual activities of the Supreme Lord gradually spiritualises the conditioned soul and ultimately severs the knot of material bondage. Liberation from material bondage is, therefore, a by-product of devotional service. The ultimate aim of liberation is to get release from material bondage and regain one's eternal existence in the spiritual world.

12:57 am - El mejor consejo que les han dado en la vida ?‎

The best all-round remedy of all is ginger tea. Cut up pieces of fresh ginger and boil them for around twenty minutes. You can add some honey if you like. Ginger will remedy both diarrhea and constipation. It resolves stomach cramps and helps digest heavy, oily food.

9:58 pm - Fuente de inspiración y ejemplo a seguir... Mahatma Gandhi

Señor, ayúdame a decir la verdad delante de los fuertes,
y a no decir mentiras para ganarme el aplauso de los débiles.

Si me das fortuna, no me quites la felicidad,
si me das fuerza no me quites la razón,
si me das éxito, no me quites la humildad,
si me das humildad, no me quites la dignidad.

Ayúdame a ver siempre el otro lado de la medalla.
No me dejes culpar de traición a los demás,
cuando no piensan lo mismo que yo.

Enséñame a querer a la gente como a mí mismo,
y a juzgarme como a los demás.

No me dejes caer en el orgullo del triunfo,
ni en la desesperación del fracaso.
Recuérdame, más bien, que el fracaso
es la experiencia que precede al triunfo.

Convénceme de que perdonar
es lo más grande que tiene el fuerte.
Y que la venganza es la señal primitiva del débil.

Si me quitas lo que tengo, déjame la esperanza,
si me quitas el éxito, déjame la fuerza
para triunfar de la dificultad.

Si yo ofendo a alguien, dame valor para pedir disculpas,
si alguien me ofende a mí, dame valor para disculpar.

Señor, si yo me olvido de Ti,
Tú nunca te olvides de mí.
