The Key to God Realization.
Longing for God is the only price one has to pay for attaining Him. Generally, people
long for mother, father, husband, wife, even the cat, dog and the canary. While many
have a burning desire for a promotion, the million-dollar lottery, a big home and a
fancy car, rare indeed is the individual who has an intense longing for union with God.
They who have a natural desire for God have worked on it in previous lifetimes. If you
were not born with a longing for God, you will have to develop it in this life. Ask
yourself, “Why do I have such a strong desire for worldly people and material goods?”
Your answer will be, “because they will give me satisfaction and happiness.” So, it is
happiness that you really want; it is satisfaction that you desire. Well, you should
know that God is the source of unlimited happiness, and He is the one who can give
you the ultimate satisfaction.
First understand from the innermost core of your mind that God is the only one who is
yours. Lord Krishna says in the Gita, “The individual soul is an eternal fraction of
Myself”. Because you are the soul, the material world cannot be yours, nor can you be
of the world. Moreover, the material world cannot satisfy the hunger of your soul,
which is divine by nature.
Realize that God alone can fulfill your selfish motive. Then you will accept God to be
your only shelter and Beloved of the soul. Longing for him will follow automatically.
Jagadguru Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj writes an inspiring song titled “Gaho Re Man..”,
which is translated in English as follows :
“O my mind! Seek shelter of Lord Krishna’s soft lotus feet. The one you call your
own mother, father, brother, wife, husband, son and daughter will not accompany you
when you leave your body and travel to unknown lands. Moreover, there is no other
way to escape from demons like lust, anger, pride, greed, desire and attachment, except
by surrendering to Shri Krishna. The material world is a mirage, containing not even a
trace of genuine happiness. Wealth, youth and life itself are all temporary,
disappearing like camphor. O foolish mind! You may not be blessed with the human
birth again for a long time. This golden opportunity will not be given to you again and
again, for it is a rare and precious gift. So wake up”.
