Yesterday, I have found an interesting story on YouTube. The man with the criminal charges was brought to the court-room. To his amazement, the judge who was hearing his case was his school time friend. He was shocked. Take a pause and imagine the scenario.
You are as good as the people you surround yourself with.
Life circumstances brought both the people into different situations. More importantly the choices out of the life circumstances will lead you into different situations on the path of life. The above situation can happen to anybody. It all depends on, what kind of choices you make on day to day basis, with your life.
Are you happy and contented with your life or maybe you are looking to scale your life to another level.
You need someone to guide you through. You need a mentor to whom you can look up to.
When you are surrounded by the people you are born and brought up with, including your friends, it becomes hard to break that barrier. Your mind doesn’t produce those path-breaking thoughts.
YOU HAVE TO CONSCIOUSLY CREATE THE CIRCLE OF PEOPLE TO WHOM YOU CAN LOOK UP TO AND THOSE WHO CAN ASSIST YOU TO TAKE A LEAP INTO YOUR LIFE.
Not necessary you need a physical presence of a person, but you can connect with them through different source.
The people you connect with make a difference to your life. This difference can go either way.
If you choose the right people for your circle, your life can move in an upward direction, but if you don’t do anything about your circle, soon your life will slip from your hands.
It’s necessary to stay upbeat in life. It gives you an edge over the moment. When you learn, and when you grow. You prepare yourself for any challenges of life.
You have to see what you are searching for in life. For instance, if you want to explore spiritual life, you can connect with the spiritual master by listening to the audios. You can be with the best fitness trainer, by watching his videos. You can also connect with the motivational Authors by reading their books.
As I was in my 20’s lots of confusion about life’s purpose was hovering into my mind. No work used to satisfy me in those days. I didn’t know what I wanted in my life.
There was one problem that made me restless all the time. I was always somewhere else but never in the moment. I was scared to stay in the moment and wanted to jump into the future.
Wherever I was present, I was simply struggling with life. I used to dream a lot and those dreams never allowed me to experience life in the moment.
One day, I was surfing through google, and somehow I came across a video of a spiritual guru, “Osho”. He was talking about present moment. The way he articulated the present moment and even the benefits of it, I was simply amazed.
I wanted to run into the future, and he used to say that future doesn’t exist. On top of that, he had all the explanations to back, to whatever he said.
I started listening to his audios and slowly I understood what he meant. Why the present moment was so important, and why to run for the future was futile. Life is present in the moment. I have not only learnt the truth of these words, but I have also embraced it in my life.
Over the time, I have realized that we are never into a reality. We always live in our minds. We always wanted to be somewhere, but never in the moment.
Life is enhanced with a broader perspective. When you connect with the higher souls, they show you life from a broader perspective.
THE CONNECTION WITH THE PEOPLE HAPPENS THROUGH THE MIND, AND NOT PHYSICAL PRESENCE. EVEN IF THEY ARE PRESENT, YOU ARE STILL CONNECTED TO THEM WITH THE MIND.
You have to surround yourself with the people that can lift your life to another level. Your family and friends are fine, but on top of that you have to create a new circle of people for yourself.
I have started practicing meditation since long. I used to practice it by myself and done tons of reading. Although I have learnt everything that was possible, I knew I was missing something. I was missing that break-through. Everything was good, but I know, I am still missing that last step. Some important knowledge was missing.
I was searching for it, and soon I came across an Organization (Brahmakumaris) that helped me to get that break through.
Every day you need to push your limits. You have to expand your boundaries, and explore your possibilities in life.
In your everyday life you are already surrounded by mediocre mindsets. They are not wrong, but if you want to make a real shift in your life, it’s necessary for you to look for the people, who are already riding high in their lives.
Every morning you have this spiritual energy that works through you. If you ignite that energy, that energy moves on a higher plane. If you don’t do anything to your energy, it remains standstill and you follow the road-routine throughout the day.

The higher souls in your circle can help you to ignite that energy and you can transcend your life to a new level.
I have come across many saints and sages in my life, with a single intention to explore the possibilities of life. When you explore the possibilities of life, you realize you know very little. There is so much to explore and there is so much to experience in life. This life is amazing.
The mind likes to set a belief for itself. Unless you break that belief, it becomes the habit for the mind, which gets difficult to break in the longer run.
During the period of lockdown, you will find many people struggling with their lives, but on the other hand, if you search for, you will also find those who are leveraging this period as an opportunity to make difference to their lives.

It’s all about the perspective. When you connect with the people, who see life from a higher perspective, you get the chance to see our world from the higher perspective. It’s magical. Your life can only transcend if your mind believes that the magic is possible.
Anything you wish to excel in your life, look for the mentor in that respective field, and bring him into your circle. Read his article, listen to his audio or video whatever you can have access to, and try to connect with him at a mental level.
You know good thing about the great people is, if you want to connect with them, you have to rise to their level of thinking. Only then their perspective will become clear to you.
Great souls live out of their visions, and not out of thinking. They follow their vision in everything that they do in their lives. These make them great. To bring their greatness into our lives, we need to consciously connect with the great souls.
P.S.: Do you have a mentor? If yes, Please mention name of your mentor and your over all experience with him.
