Yes, that is
what exactly happened with me when 15 years of age. In order to
travel the spiritual path and search for God, I reached a stage
when I felt I would have to forego everything that I called my own.
My family... all relationships... all material riches... everything
11 years of age I had decided to go in search of God. By 13 years of age my desire
had converted to the only goal of life. Come whatever may... I shall go in search
of God in this very life... this was my motto!
When 15... I
felt that in absence of a Guru (spiritual master) I would have to
leave for the confines of the forests (jungles) to learn the Wisdom.
I went to my mother and asked of her leave. She looked at me and
She told me
that if I wanted to go... I was free but the other day I would find
the body of my dead mother in the canal nearby. She told me in clear
terms that living with a husband (my father was a born dictator)
in the present circumstances in absence of children was out of question.
dropped the idea of leaving the family. I continued the journey of life living
in the family. I somehow prayed to God to show me the right path. Living within
the confines of the family I could not find a spiritual master to guide me. At
times I was extremely puzzled... not knowing where to go or what to do!
day while I lay in the Shavasana pose of yoga... I enquired of God Almighty whether
he was prepared to become my Guru (spiritual master) for the balance of my life.
I was totally flabbergasted when something within me prompted... yes!
Almighty himself had come to my rescue. He had agreed to become my master and
also my goal! After 25 years of meditation yoga I ultimately realized God in 1993.
I finally reached the end goal of life... I had for all practical purposes succeeded
absolute Wisdom thereupon. The gist of Bhagavad Gita... the most sacred Scripture
of Hinduism available on Mother Earth... having become like ABC... I had finally
conquered the unachievable.
