Fast-forward life

Once you are actively on a spiritual path, some people may tell you, "Now everything will be okay." But being on the spiritual path is not about having everything okay.

Once you are actively on a spiritual path, some people may tell you, "Now everything will be okay." But being on the spiritual path is not about having everything okay. If you want things to be okay, you have got to fix them, and still, only some things will be okay, not everything.

The significance of being on the spiritual path is not to seek comfort, but to put your life on fast-forward. So, more fluctuations than you ever imagined may happen in your life. Things that would have happened in 10 years will happen in two months. Whether you have the courage, capability and the stability to take it is the question. If you are seeking comfort, then you should not be on the spiritual path.

To be spiritual means beating the evolutionary process. It means one does not have the patience to go at the evolutionary speed; one wants to go fast and yet be stable.

Sadhana, in a measured way, is created so that one can have stability and at the same time speed. If there is no speed in you, you will feel like a tombstone not going anywhere. If you are very fast, then it feels like a rollercoaster ride. A rollercoaster gives you a feeling of being out of control. But actually, it is perfectly safe because it is locked onto the rail on which it runs.

A spiritual process is just like that. If you have clamped onto the inner rail, everything may be going wild and weird; but it does not matter because there is one spot which is steady and it is not going to fall off. If you have fixed yourself like that with what is internal, then let the outside situation go as weird as you can imagine. You will still on track.

So, the significance of being on the spiritual path is not that everything is going to be fixed. Even if nothing is fixed and everything is going crazy, you can say, "I am fixed, so everything is fine with me." -www.ishafoundation.org
