SHARPENING THE AXE
We continue with more Swadhyaya (self-study).
During the last decades, self-help or self-improvement and personal development workshops or self-help courses have become very popular to be a “winner”.
Some of these talk about
the importance of "Sharpening the Axe", referring to improving your personality as a basic tool to succeed in life.
Good guidelines are given in most of these courses, but if we want to delve deeper into this topic in the light of spiritual science, we have to include the practices of:
1) Charity and Kindness (Daan).
2) Virtues and Self-disciplines such as: truthfulness, honesty, etc. (Tapa).
3) Good Selfless Deeds (Karma).
4) and Knowing Yourself or Self-study (Swadhyaya).
But implementing all this can be very overwhelming for many, especially when dealing with a corrupt and toxic environment.
What to do?
According to the oldest source of Wisdom, the Vedas, we must include a fifth practice, the Homa Bioenergetic Fires (YAGNYAS) to Purify the atmosphere and therefore the Prana and the Mind and transform it in the direction of Unconditional Love.
Thus, we all have the possibility to Sharpen the Ax (the Mind) easily with the practice of Agnihotra.
This prepares us every morning to quiet the mind, focus it and act with serenity in the midst of challenges or storms that we have to face in the game of life.
Furthermore, Agnihotra has a Positive Epigenetic Effect on all of nature.
Evening Agnihotra at sunset, allows us to have a restorative and regenerative sleep.
Yes, Yes, Yes, The Great Secret of Happiness and Success lies in acting without expecting anything in return, as an instrument guided by something bigger than a small or big “me”.
Yes, yes, yes, Agnihotra promotes humility, helps reduce the ego and leave it in the past.
But above all, Agnihotra purifies the heart and allows the Divinity within to convert us into instruments of Peace, as expressed in the prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi.
A sharp instrument can be very useful in the hands of a carpenter, or the hands of a surgeon, or the hands of God.
If we leave the little self,
the Grace of God appears.
