In the profound realm of Vedic philosophy, timeless wisdom reveals itself – the end is but the beginning and every beginning marks the end. These cycles of existence hold profound significance, yet regrettably, they often fall prey to misinterpretation and distortion by those with ulterior motives, cloaking life’s true purpose in the garb of cults and dogmas.
These distortions make life seem devoid of meaning, reducing it to mere servitude to a particular religious or cultic ideology, distancing people from their families and life’s meaningful work. But if a belief system is genuinely true, why the need for isolation and fear of dissenting voices? After all, if the end and the beginning are intertwined, why obsess over the cult’s fate or its influence?
Vedic philosophy unveils another fundamental truth: we are not merely our bodies or minds but eternal conscious energy – the Atmana. This energy, like any other, knows neither birth nor death; since it is conscious, it animates the world, and it possesses the power to heal the world, often wounded by the mind’s turmoil. This is not a theoretical abstraction; it’s something we all experience in deep sleep, a blissful moment where we connect with our true selves, free from memory and at total peace. This is the undeniable proof of the Atmana, the state we return to when body and mind dissolve.
This timeless wisdom is not confined to esoteric contemplation but has practical relevance for our tumultuous world. To navigate the challenges and uncertainties that threaten our existence, we must embrace the reality that change is the only constant. Resisting change is futile; it signifies an attachment to the familiar and a fear of the unknown, the uncharted territory of the mind.
We should not fear change, be it in our familial, social, or economic spheres. A mind guided by consciousness becomes Chitta, capable of surviving, adapting, and thriving. Today, as economic challenges cast a shadow over livelihoods, we must remember that when the known ways falter, it’s time to explore new avenues, for possibilities are never out of reach.
Crucially, the first step lies in cultivating the right frame of mind. A mind aligned with consciousness is calm, harmonious, and objective. It faces challenges and change without hesitation, seeking solutions instead of dwelling on the past or fearing the future. It dwells in the present, exuding bliss as it earnestly works to overcome obstacles.
Achieving this state of mind is the essence of Yogic Counseling, a pathway to tranquillity and wisdom in the face of life’s ever-changing landscapes. So, let us embark on this journey to rediscover the profound wisdom of Vedic philosophy, unlock the power of inner harmony, and fearlessly embrace the endless cycles of existence.
