Making true progress!
Skates are basically shoes + wheels… Hence, rather than just walking & progressing in life, let’s put on the wheels of spiritual knowledge & meditation to race ahead in life!
Skates allow us to achieve a very high speed… Hence, the power of meditation allows us to progress very fast in life, and that too in a holistic & sustainable manner!
Many schools organize skating competitions… Hence, let’s always remember that the word competition is only meant for games & sports, not for life… Hence, let’s not compete with others, but instead let’s keep competing with ourselves (ie keep enhancing our capacity!)
Skating requires a level surface… Similarly, let’s keep the surface of our mind free from the ups & downs of waste thoughts!
Skates are a very simple but useful invention… Similarly, let’s keep our life very pure & simple, to become a sample for all! (ie an example for all!)
Skating requires very good balance… Hence, let’s keep a perfect balance between empowering the mind (through regular 1-minute meditation breaks) & using the mind in activities!
With practice, many are able to even walk fluently even with skates on… Similarly, the practice of meditation allows us to remain stable & happy even in the most challenging of circumstances!
Skating is prone to collisions & falls… Similarly, a life without spiritual knowledge is prone to experiencing frequent falls in our state of mind
Skating requires protective equipment to be worn on elbows, knees & head… Similarly, let’s protect ourselves from waste & negative through the power of meditation!
Getting up from the floor with skates on is difficult… Hence, let’s leave the sanskar of blaming others, which never allows us to get up & progress in life… Indeed, let’s take up personal responsibility for our state of mind!
Many enroll their children into classes for skating, basketball, dancing, etc… While these are important extra-curricular activities no doubt, their use in life is limited… Hence, let’s also find ways to empower their mind (e.g., by sending them to regular spiritual programs at the nearest Centre), since it’s the mind which is used 24×7, & in all activities!
Some have skating as their hobby… Similarly, let’s make serving & benefitting others the hobby of our life!
The joy of Spirituality!
Wheels move in a circular manner… Similarly, let’s keep circulating around (ie remembering) God!
Skates are of many different types… Similarly, there’re numerous different ways of remembering God:
- Make Him our Mother, Father, Teacher, Friend & Beloved!… With a lot of love!
- Keep remembering His various praises, virtues & divine duties… With a lot of happiness!
- Keep talking with Him about our life, aspirations, commitments, experiences, etc… With a lot of belonging!
Skates need to be tied properly with the feet… Similarly, let’s tie the string of our life with God… ie let’s always live under His loving canopy of protection, & keep following His elevated directions!
Wheels can get quite muddy, hence need to wash the skates regularly… Similarly, after spending the entire day at work under the influence of external situations & people, let’s wash our mind in the fountain of meditation… To remain in the experience of our original virtues of peace love & happiness always!
Skating is done outdoors… Similarly, let’s go outdoors ie beyond this world in the peaceful experience of the soul world regularly… This then naturally makes our subsequent activities very easy & simple!
Skating needs to be learnt properly from a qualified person… Similarly, let’s also learn the simple art of Rajyoga Meditation properly from our nearest Brahma Kumaris Centre, to fully experience the practical benefits of meditation… ie to experience a life full of purity, peace, love & joy!
Hence today on Go Skateboarding Day, let’s put on the wheels of spiritual knowledge & meditation to race forward in life… ie let’s constantly remain in the loving canopy of God, in the experience of our original virtues of peace love & happiness always, free from any negative emotions like blame & competition!… This constant company of the Supreme, emerges the divine sanskars within each one of us, hence bringing the divine land Satyuga once again!
Skating is fun in the wind… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from wind!
Skating is loved by children… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from children!
Skating is a form of play… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from playing!
Skating can also be included in sports… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from sports!
Even bicycles have wheels… Hence, let’s also take some spiritual inspirations from bicycles!
