Light and Action

March 8, 2010 by Lightwaves

Swami Radhananda“Every one of us has that ability to take action in a moment that seems difficult, whether it’s within you or with other people.”

In this Satsang, Swami Radhananda speaks about how daily spiritual practice helps to build a foundation of awareness that we can apply to our daily interactions. This supports us when we are faced with difficult events, which can take us by surprise even in the most peaceful moments.

Questions for Reflection:

Can I remember an action I took where I felt supported? Where does that support come from?

  1. It is a main issue in Yoga to make clear distinction between good and bad when one has to make a desicion. Sometimes our minds point to us in some way and our hearts in another direction.
    To place both choices in a balance, and then decide upon an action is what is thought to be the best … to make a clear election between good and bad. A conscious choice.
    But some teachings tell us that one must not make a distinction between the two oppossites, but that one must always follow one´s heart; even if our mind does not understand or does not agree with our choice … Whatever consequences spring from these actions would be dealt for by the soul.
    I have always thought this to be the lightwave of God … but it has gotten me into very deep troubles in my everyday life. The world is a place where love is an outlaw … so now I wonder if I should keep following my heart and not my mind … the heart is afterall the chair of our very rejected ego …

  2. Your comment is timely as here at the Ashram our 3 month intensive course now underway is in the midst of the Battle of the Gita. This is a four day workshop where participants are reflecting on the Bhagavad Gita, reading all 18 discourses. Krishna reminds us that the mark of a sage is one who sees the sage, a dog, and the man who eats the dog as emanations of the one Light.

    Equanimity as a power brings peace to both mind and heart, so I ask how can I do this when facing a difficult issue or person? Thoughts from our readers?
