One of the participants of 'ME Holistic Centre's' sessions from Mumbai, Sandeepji Ketkar, DSP, Mumbai, visited Nashik during Navratri. During his visit he wanted to meet me and for which he had given prior notice. He visited 'ME Healthy Shopee' office with his 10 friends. I was meeting all of them for the first time. He said, "My wife and I have been following your videos and post since one and half years. My wife has sent some gift for you." I joined my hands in namaste mudra and said, "I appreciate your feelings, but I don't take any gifts." He said, "its Navratri time and this is the Oti (gift offered to goddess or a female during Navratri) that we wanted you to receive". I couldn't say anything and I accepted it. With Oti, there was a white colour cotton khadi saree with golden jari border which is seen in the photo below.
On the auspicious occasion of Dussehra, I wore that saree and sent Dussehra message to the Sandeepji. He replied to the message as seen in the following screenshot image:
Sandeepji said in the message, "I did fasting for the first time during Navratri and my wife and I had decided that this time they will give Oti to a female devi who is doing God's work. We saw that form of Devi in you. God has fulfilled our wishes. Thank you." 'The beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder' and thus Sandeepji could see the Devi form in others because he had that goodness and beauty within him. It also struck me deeply about the work that we are doing and its alignment with life purpose. There comes a moment in your life when you realize that your life is not only yours, You realize that you are a part of a bigger purpose, a part of a bigger entity, You realize your connection with the universe, And your real life starts from there on. I remember the story of Lord Krishna. When Shri Krishna was 16 years old, his guru Sandipani told him his life purpose. Since that time Shri Krishna gave up his mischievous & playful childhood pranks, his raslila, his flute playing & even Radha. He met Radha for the last time and set on His life mission. He had a role to play in the universe, He was meant for a purpose, He had to serve and protect the people and earth. In spite of leaving His love Radha and his playful and mischievous deeds, He was totally contended and at peace. For everyone, a time comes when one realizes the life purpose in some or other form. There comes a time when one feels an unknown pull to serve mankind, to serve mother earth and/or to serve the environment (nature). With the realization & connection of life purpose, one gets into action and there is no time left to do any other earlier activities of lazing around or whiling away time. Whenever anyone is aligned with his/her life purpose, entire universe supports & gives the divine powers and/or strength and makes the person capable to help others. It also gives person peace and contentment. It impacts other people positively and it's also appreciated. In Bhagwad Geeta Lord Krishna says, "shreyanswadharma", means our own dharma (here dharm means life purpose) is the most superior. I realized that I did not get time to attend the parties and meet friends at leisure in past few years the way I used to meet earlier and to while away the time into various activities. While staying alone, I had a need to meet friends and family earlier however now I enjoy my solitude. I find peace in everything and in nothing too. I feel so much contended and at peace. God has aligned me to 'ME', to my life purpose, so nothing more I need to ask God other than the tag line of 'ME Holistic Centre': || सर्वे भवन्तु सुखिनः सर्वे सन्तु निरामया: || meaning 'May everyone be healthy, may everyone be happy'. I pray to God to align everyone with their life purpose. Health and happiness automatically comes when one is aligned with the life purpose which is also higher energy. God is always giving us everything in abundance. We just have to make ourselves ready to receive His divine grace. Let's get ready to receive His divine grace. There is no dearth of giving from God. He gives so much that we will get tired of collecting. ईश्वर के देने मे कोई कमी नहीं । वो इतना देते है की हम बटोरते हुए थक जायेगे । Let's align to receive His divine grace.
