Controlling emotional depression is sometimes impossible,when someone passing through a tough situation in life. You reach to a point where you can’t let it go and can’t solve it by yourself entirely.
Being trapped in a situation, you can hardly ask anyone for help. Friendly advice seems an inanimate remedy in these stressful situations because it is almost like shaking a dead person to come back to life. Although internally you are aware of the presence of the Divine, you pay no heed to it. You neither want to get uplifted nor drown deep into the misery. In this suspended state, you only expect things to move in a direction you desire.
The mind always looks for a comfortable and easy going life, with no intense painful moments. Hence, it would struggle to settle itself in the worldly setup by earning more wealth or gaining power. It is an inherent nature of the human mind to secure its position in the world with an assured identity.
This state of mind for a spiritual seeker is more loud and active than the material mindset. The spiritual mind has tasted the nectar of Divinity and can’t stop after coming so close to it. Here, the seeker has already realised the importance of spiritual growth and how trivial material life is. They know wealth can’t satisfy their hunger for the Divine. Hence, the seeker expects constant happiness from the Divine with no hiccoughs on the path. This further exacerbates the emotional pain.
Being able to grow spiritually and to connect with the Divine is a treasured asset of your life which no one can take away from you. Why I am mentioning all this here is to help you understand what exactly is happening with you.
When you realise that you are so close to the Divine and the world is standing as a wall between you and your Divine, it is an unbearable pain for a seeker to even feel for a second. Out of desperation, you slow down in your growth. Life seems hopeless. Having crossed so many hurdles, why can’t I cover the distance between me and my Inner Divine? This pricking question and craving for the Divine distresses you even further.
Your Divine would never want you to suffer. If the purpose of your life is Divine and the goal is high, you can’t expect to operate in this world as per your convenience. The seeker is aiming for the highest, so whatever is blocking the growth would be dissolved. Your emotional turmoil is just a part of that. The seeker has a spiritual privilege of the Inner Divine.
His presence in your heart would never let you down. Sometimes, the human mind forgets this advantage due to worldly influences. Once you get access to your Inner Divine, all complications are resolved. Even if you don’t get it, He would intervene and help you to encounter these delicate challenging moments and elevate you to a much higher state. Once you overcome these challenges, you will in fact wonder how well you successfully grew and escaped through them.
If you are a true seeker and genuinely love your Divine, your love should never fade and become weak. You have the Supreme Friend in your heart, why should you become weak? During an emotional setback, you should be anchored to the ‘will of the Divine’. The only remedy to help you in that moment is to know that your Divine loves you and you need to keep faith in His Grace. There can’t be a better moment to experience His Love and Grace for you. All would be taken care of under His shelter, you just need to flow with Him.
Your Divine is watching you.
Let His Grace and Will guide you further!
Keep Faith in your Divine!>
