Basically the circumstances don’t change but our perception of it changes. We realize it is 99% of the problem. Once the changes happen (inside us), then things outside also changes. My story convinces of this fact. Thanks.
About a month back I went on a trip. During this time something unexpected and miraculous happened.
I have always been timid and reticent throughout my life. Never speak much to people, never been in a romantic relationship. Always been a solitary person.
On this particular day I met a girl from another country and we started talking. We felt so comfortable with each other that we stayed together for the whole day and then the next, parting only to sleep or other essentials. It was unbelievable. It felt like we knew each other from a long time.
Things moved forward and a person who had been alone, timid and anonymous all through his life fell in love. It snowballed into a physical relationship the next day and an unprotected one at that. It was unexpected, unplanned and felt pure and right at the time.
We parted on the fourth day, very sad and confused at what the future would bring. After coming back the feeling of togetherness gave way to darker feelings,
I was savaged by pangs of guilt and then fear that because of the unprotected nature of things, I may have caught something and I deserve it for what I had done. It is a sin, something wrong. It became a demon on my mind. I could neither sleep nor work.
Finally when I could bear it no longer I called Naran. He was kind and non-judgmental (my deep gratitude to him), and asked me to take the Bach Flower Remedies MIMULUS, PINE and HONEY SUCKLE.
I began taking the pills as instructed and after a few days my whole mood changed. It was amazing.
I realized that I was operating from a position of fear, guilt and anxiety – all of which were tarnishing such a beautiful gift that I had received.
In a few days she got in touch with me, against all my notions and came down and spent the rest of her trip at my city.
We got to know each other much better and we realized that we are probably are soul mates and although we are from different religions, language, nationality etc we are at peace with each other.
I am so glad I was able to rise above the narrow and diminishing feelings of fear, guilt and anxiety and stay present to the wonderful person, experience and gift that I had got. If I had continued like that I may have lost a chance to accept a great blessing in my life!
Thank you, thank you dear Naran. God bless you and the Bach flower remedies!!!
Now we continue to stay in touch over Skype and I plan to visit her in her country. Naran has asked me to take the Bach Flower Remedies SCLERANTHUS and SWEET CHESTNUT to help guide me if she is the right life partner for me. So I feel much at peace knowing I have divine guidance to prevent me from making a wrong decision.
I am so grateful for everything!!
Deep Gratitude and Warm regards

Don’t Take Words Literally
Mummy commented: “I thought Naran was a very humble man but looks like he is a hypocrite after all!! Typical Indian mentality”: http://wp.me/pwhm3-1q

Go beyond the meaning of the word
You don’t know what you know! Know what you don’t know!!
Every word in every language is sacred.
Go beyond any word “uttered”.
Every word will reveal its hidden message given by the divine at that time, if you mediate on that word.
Outwardly the word’s meaning is different. Inwardly, it has a different objective meaning.
Every word used in life has two purposes:
After reading the comment by Mummy…
I was chanting “Hypocrite” for over 10 minutes.
I opened a dictionary for understanding the meaning beyond this word.
The meaning reminded me of Gita – “He, who restrains his organs of action but continues to indulge in mind brooding over the objects of sense, is considered a man of false conduct” (chapter 3 Sloka 6).
Another facet of Rock Water and Chestnut Bud
After reading this, I have found another facet of Bach flower remedy ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD.
This reveals a new aspect of flower Rock Water.
It is immaterial whether one carries out his desires through (senses) action or not.
Rock water is needed for person who is brooding or indulging in thoughts of vice – sexual thoughts even though outwardly they are not doing the action.
Mental indulgence in sex happens mainly in two phases – old age and adolescence.
For restraining masturbation and looking at pornography pictures take the remedies ROCK WATER and CHESTNUT BUD.
Rock Water can be considered for people who deny themselves any pleasure in actions.
My salutations to Rock water and Chestnut bud!!!
Thank you Mummy for using the “word” Hypocrite on Indians.
Thank you Divine Mother for your grace.
The reason why Chestnut bud is also considered here will be discussed in next communication.
