Hello and welcome to episode 5 of The Ask Sri Vishwanath Show. Today I want to talk about the danger of supressing guilt and sin.
I hope you are all having a great day and if you’re not you will be by the end of this episode. Yesterday we spoke and guilt and sin and everything that comes with it. I wanted to talk some more about it today because I received a lot of questions and comments. I really want to help you rid your mind of guilt.
Imagine we have two dollar notes. One is real and one is fake. What do you do with the fake one? You can’t buy anything with it, it’s of no real use so you’ll probably throw it out. Let me ask you this: how did you know it was fake? How did you know the other one was real? You know because of knowledge.
The first steps is knowledge. Both of those dollar notes are “real”. They both exist but it’s only through knowledge that I’m able to tell which one is authentic. Once you have that knowledge you can act on it and stop worrying about the fake one. Just use the real one because the fake one can get you into trouble.
The same idea applies to our lives. In our lives we have two things. The first is high vibration. This includes love, joy, appendance, success and other good things. The second is low vibrations. This includes hatred, fear, guilt, sin, doubt, laziness and frustration. Both of these vibrations exist within us. They tend to co-exist like pain and gratitude.
High vibrations benefit us by helping us move closer to the light. High vibrations are proof of light and low vibrations are proof of darkness. Through knowledge we know that we don’t want lower vibrations. However we can’t just crumple them up and throw them away like the fake dollar. It would be great if we could but unfortunately it doesn’t work that way.
I want to show you how we can get rid of it. Thinking about these things causes all sorts of problems. In episode 2 we spoke about why we sometimes don’t feel any benefit from doing good things because of disturbances. I don’t want you to think of guilt.
Krishna says “the sage neither hates light action delusion when they appear nor seeks them when they disappear. Seated as if indifferent he is not disturbed by constituents. He stirs not is of steadfast resolve holding that constituents alone prevail
The sage is the wise being within us all. The sage neither hates light action or delusion. So when these thoughts come he doesn’t try to run from them. Don’t feel bad about them and don’t try and seek them when they are not there. Don’t feel bad about them. They are a lower vibration, an illusion. Only ever focus on higher vibrations.
It doesn’t matter who or where you are. Even if a place remains in darkness for a thousand years it can still be illuminated by light. Light destroys lower vibrations just like it cuts through the darkness instantly. Always understand this. You don’t have to suffer.
When it comes don’t worry about it. It will go away. Spend time on your high vibrations. Spend time doing good things. All you need to do is bring the light in. Forget about darkness. That light is already in you. That light is love. If you are in trouble then show some love.
Imagine if there was no pleasure on this earth. Imagine if all the pleasure was replaced with love. The world would be full of higher vibrations. One higher vibration can destroy thousands of lower vibrations. Imagine if one person had ten higher vibrations of love. They could help hundreds of thousands of people. Those lower vibrations of guilt would disappear instantly.
Imagine how wonderful the world would be if there was more love. There would be no guilt, no hatred and no sins because all of the lower vibrations are known as sins: laziness, procrastination and hatred. They are all lower vibrations. These all torment the mind.
The problem is that we are not taught this as we grow up. We are thought to supress things but that doesn’t work. The only way to be rid of the darkness is to bring in the light. Even a little light is enough. Just read one verse or say one prayer or meditate for 5 minutes and it will be enough to let some light into the darkness.
Remember: “Him the weapons cannot cut, fire cannot burn, water cannot wet, wind cannot dry. The self cannot be cut, dried, burned or wetted…Eternal, all pervasive, stable, immovable, everlasting the Self Reigns”
This is my favourite verse because it says everything you really need to know. Meditate on these words every morning for 5 minutes. Read it as many times as you need. When you do this light will come pouring into your life immediately. Read it over and over and the darkness will be gone. Your life will be full of bliss.
Guilt and fear is ruining us. They are filling our minds with garbage. Only imagine love, joy appendance and success. Then you will be at peace. Imagine how wonderful your day would be. It would be so peaceful. A wonderful way to live.
Draw back into yourself. Turn your mind inwards and focus on your consciousness. Imagine that guilt and hatred are waves crashing down on you. Draw them in and dissolve them. Have pride in your consciousness. Do this by meditating on those higher words every morning.
This is the only way but it’s so simple. Once you let the light in nothing will be able to stop you. You will be invincible. You’ll be able to start a wonderful journey that is full of love.
Remember you keep asking questions and I’ll keep answering them.
