Establish link with the source
The Lord is embodiment of Love and Peace i.e.,Premaswarupa and Shanthiswarupa. He will make the most wicked heart melt in repentance and he can also make every heart sprout into prema and shanthi. He gives heap of bother(Anugraham i.e.,favour) and heap of joy (prasadam i.e.,grace). The Lord will start his mission of instruction for those who are suffering with mental crisis and for those who are afflicted by doubt and for those who are not clear about their goal or path. The instructions are useless for those who have known neither goal or path, neither thirst not yearning. Man is not a weak animal. He is endowed with mighty spiritual power and he can learn to tap this power through prayer which brings down Grace to fill the reservoir of his heart. The body is worn by the jeeva in order to realise God which is the source from which the jeeva came.
As stated in Bhagavad-gita: Ksetrajnam ca mam viddhi sarva-ksetresu bharata
"As the individual soul is conscious of his body, I am conscious of everyone's body."
Basically, There are two different qualities of consciousness. One, Individual consciousness which experiences about the pain and pleasure of individual body. Therefore each and every one is an individual soul and our consciousness is limited within the body. Similarly, there is another consciousness and another body which is the universal body and universal. That Universal Consciousness knows pains and pleasures of millions and trillions of all living entities. This Universal Consciousness is the God who knows the pains and pleasures of everyone.
Our consciousness also experiences the same quality of eternity, knowledge and bliss when it is dovetailed with the Universal Consciousness. So, One has to dovetail his activities with the Universal Consciousness or Krishna to attain equality, fraternity, or universality. It is possible to attain peace and tranquility all over by following the formula given in the Bhagavad-gita [Pg. 5.29]:
Bhoktaram yajna-tapasam sarva-loka-mahesvaram
"You can attain peace only when you understand that God is the proprietor of everything."
Seek the "One Persistent Truth" but not "ever-changing falsehood" that makes you fall into grief and resentment. Do not get puffed up with pride when you succeed and do not get punctured when you fail. Withdraw the outgoing senses into yourself and be happy in the contemplation of your reality. When sadhaka shake off the attachments that are likely to grow when the world impinges on him, The soul moves like a bird through the infinite sky unopposed when it has gained freedom from its bondage.
One has to look at this objective world with jnana chakshu (the eye of wisdom) but not with the charma chakshu (physical eye). He has to realise that he is not the physical body that has birth, growth, decay and death. One has to comprehend the transcendental reality with the help of jnana chakshu which is beyond the body and mind. The body is perishable like a water bubble and the mind has fleeting nature. So, both of them must be discarded i.e., no importance should be attached to them.
The efforts are to be made to realise the Atma Thathwa (fundamental truth) which is infinite, indescribale, immeasurable and that has no birth and death. Atma is Nirgunam, niranjanam, sanathana niketanam, nitya, shuddha, buddha, mukta, nirmala swarupinam (attributeless, pure, final abode, eternal, unsullied, enlightened, free, and embodiment of sacredness). Atma Thathwa is immanent in every being in the form of consciousness. Human life will acquire a meaning and purpose when it realises the consciouness. Same electrical energy manifests as light through the bulbs of different sizes, colours and capacity. Similarly, the same divine power is present in every living being and makes it function. That is Atma Thathwa. Sathya is the electricity, Dharma is the wire through which the electric current passes. Santhi is the bulb. Prema is the effulgence. So, One have to follow Sathya and Dharma to attain Atmaananda (Atmic bliss).
A mere five-minute inquiry will convince you that you are not the body or the senses or the mind or the intelligence or the name or the form, but that you are the Aathma Itself and the same athma appears as all this variety. Hold on to this truth and make it your permanent possession. Understand perfectly about the Universal Consciousness and fully surrender your life to Him. This is the perfection of existence.
