Relaxation for Anxiety and Stress
Relaxation skill is the pleasing method, process, procedure and activity that helps a person to attain a state of increased calmness to reduce the level of stress and anxiety. The management of human life must involve superb thinking, planning, actions and proper utilization of resources with positive aspects to achieve maximum favorable results. These achievements should be analyzed in different situations and even revised for further progress. Relaxation empowers physical strength, increases energy and attention, helps to relieve body pain and illness, resolves many psychological problems and boosts inspiration and moral status. It is better if we consider our specific needs, preferences, and fitness and discard stress to achieve desirable relaxation.

Challenge of Anxiety:
Anxiety is a concern of worries, nervousness (a group of mental disorders), unease, fearfulness, disturbance, tension and agitation when faced with problems at work, before taking at test or making important decision. Anxiety causes many disorders like panic, irregular heartbeat, worries, embarrassment, muscular tension, mental illness and even cancer. Another description reveals agony, terror and apprehension. Anxiety disorders may run in families and can be hereditary. Extremely anxious persons may think of committing suicide. No doubt that anxiety interferes with our ability to lead normal life but we can manage the ill effects through confidence, art of relaxation or even slight treatment.The psychiatrists and other mental health professionals can diagnose the reasons and extent of anxiety through counseling and certain assessment tools. The problem can be reduced with treatment of positive behavior, life style changes, dietary adjustments, simple medicines to relieve depression. Every person should take proper balanced meals, discard alcohol and caffeine, get sufficient sleep, perform daily exercise for good health, follow positive thoughts and contentment, use calming visualization and spare time to perform voluntary social service.

Manage relief from Stress:
Stress is the major cause of depression which represents a state of sadness, dejection, lack of enthusiasm or hope. The affected person becomes engrossed in sorrows and hollowness. It causes ill effects on body, thoughts, feelings and behavior. It brings many health problems such as high blood pressure, heart diseases, diabetes and obesity. A stressed event can trigger ‘fight to flight’ response causing over secretion of hormones like adrenalin and cortisol to surge through the body. Too much of adrenalin makes the body over excited, afraid and angry with increased heart beat.   Adopt positive possibilities. Observe to control the real, virtual and sufficient energy of your disappointment and transform it to positive, effective and unstoppable determination. Overcome inadequacy; carry on forward movements without reluctance towards a glorious future. The word ‘desserts’ (Sweetness) is the opposite form of ‘stressed’.   

Methods to achieve Relaxation:
  • Concentrate on balanced diet and bio-feed back.
  • Realize on yoga and daily exercise, may be in the form of simple walking, cycling or gardening.
  • Promoting relaxation through massage, acupuncture and myo-therapy.
  • Self assessment and improvement through good habits and inspiring behavior.
  • Think and thank to all you have good links of relations and friendship.
  • Auto-suggestion and prayers. Adapt transcendental meditation techniques to achieve visualization of Spiritual Master.
  • Contentment is the appreciation of what you already have; it is not the fulfillment of what you wish to have. It is natural wealth, whereas, luxury is artificial poverty. Thank God for all that He has given you.
  • Truly dwell on as per present situations and plan for fruitful future. Do not repent on the failures of past.
  • Do not worry on the progress made by others. Think that God has blessed you and others with kind grace.
  • Make notes on your daily achievements and other happenings. After all, a short writing is better than a long memory.
  • Try to affirm only those promises you can fulfill without tension.
  • Develop good habits with positive attitude. True character is what you are in solitude. Seek occasional solitude because better thoughts are the source personal power.
  • Offer flower bouquets to the persons you love for no special reason.
  • Joy shared is joy doubled, sorrows shared are sorrows halved.
  • Do not speak ill of any person and speak good of everybody.
  • Acquire virtuous qualities of humility, courage, universal brotherhood and respect for all religions, kindness, tolerance and innovative spirit.  
  • Rejoice because thorn bushes have roses instead of complaining that rose bushes have thorns.  
  • Try to seek the blessings of your spiritual guide when you are feeling down. Accept your faults or shortcomings.

Advantages of Relaxation:
  • Relieve from stress and depression by overpowering the evil situations.
  •  Improve breathing, cardiac health and normalize blood pressure.
  • Anger management, rescue from headache and body pain.
  •  Elevate immune system to elevate the status of body to prevent and fight diseases.
  •  Prevent insomnia, preparation for artificial sleep; never create fear from night dreams.
  •  Progressive muscular comfort and body strength.          
  •  Provides relief during pregnancy and child birth.
  • Achieve the bliss of excellence in family life.
  • Earn social status through amiable behavior.
  • We should train our mind to observe stability in every situation so as to perceive that our life has more to offer.
  • Everybody cannot be a captain, somebody has to be crew. Happiness is found along the way and not at the end of road. Life is succession of moments to live each one is to succeed. You have done it before and you can do it now.
  • Creativity is the ability to produce new things, using skill and imagination.
  • If you want to achieve the goal, you have to move steadily towards it with will, patience and perseverance.

Spiritual Relaxation:
Get up, rouse from sleep, be awakened and try to seek the Divine bliss. Approach the Lord in the spirit of total surrender, with full faith and deep reverence. Be sure that He can elevate you out of rot without much delay. Peace of mind is the prime need of every human being because it is the precious jewel in man’s life. Regular prayers and meditation transform human vices, such as, anger, lust, greed and ego to patience, respect, love for humanity and humility. A sense of calmness and tranquility gets in stilled in mind. Tension, stress and distressing factors stack away. More so, every meditating person develops positive thinking even in conditions of pain, grief and sufferings. The Spiritual guide can raise the level of consciousness in aspirant by more glances in no time, if he is the perfect master and not an imposter. But the seeker must develop good receptivity and faith. Therefore, the chronic problems of anxiety and stress can be relieved more through self confidence, strong will power and with the benevolence of Divine Power.

Search for a spiritual Guru – Dr. TN Chugh

Search for a spiritual Guru – Dr. TN Chugh 

24 April, 2017

Search for Spiritual ‘Guru’
Millions forms of life, dwelling on earth and many more planets of the universe are the wonderful, well planned miraculous creations of Almighty Lord. Human species is the most intelligent, sublime, superb and lovable race among all. Right from the time of its appearance, the human generation has been engrossed with an urge to trace its real origin and search for the final abode after departure from this world. Many thinkers, philosophers, prophets and ascetics have appeared in various countries; with diverse languages and religions, who have tried to reveal the ultimate truth but most of them have not been successful to fully clarify the secret of the sacred ultimate divine destination.   
The spiritual guides are the true messengers of God. These popular guides are the true saints or enlightened individuals. Never the less, certain other persons refer them as Tolems, Guardian Angels or Nature Spirits, paragon, sage, seer, hermit, anchorite, deity, axiomatic and enshrine. In India, they are respected as Mahatama or Satguru. They incarnate from their supernatural astral abode and appear on earth. They seem to remain in the universe as other human beings but their thinking, style of working, approach to prayer etc. are altogether different. Our religious literatures convey that visualization of God can be possible through the guidance and blessings of spiritual master.
The Divine Bliss:
The divine alone is eternal, constant and changeless. All else is subject to change, transient, decay and destruction. The course of life can become easy if one can surrender oneself totally to Divine and follow the divine guidance with faith. The benevolence of God is the way to achieve human excellence in totality and also to attain sublime state of supernatural peace. Meditation helps us in knowing the depth of our mind because it gets calm and cool. During meditation the shut up energy of mind is released giving comfort and freshness to mind and body. It enables man to lead purposeful and happy life.
Noble Characteristics of Spiritual Guru:
Saint is a person of exceptional holiness, virtue and holiness. He is an inner living urge who will come to you to do your needful. How to find such ‘Guru’ and where from? The spiritual guide possesses many unique, excellent and distinguished qualities---
Ø  Saints incarnate as true messengers of Almighty Lord for the well being of humanity.
Ø  Perfect saint is one with God. His personal qualities are unique. He believes in honesty, contentment, tolerance, amity, forgiveness, charity etc.
Ø  He acts as true guide, mentor and philosopher. His actions become ideals for masses.
Ø  He guides the devotees to perform regular meditation for spiritual emancipation and achieve Divine blessings.
Ø  He believes that God is within each individual. Everyone must perform self appraisal and realize oneness of God irrespective of religions.
Ø  Saints may belong to any sect, country or language but establish clear, pious, non-controversial, decent, universal identity in the society.
Ø  Possess firm faith and reverence in God because He is the eternal truth.
Ø  They preach to remain aloof from wicked thoughts and actions.
Ø  Never accept any gift, alms, offerings or donations.
Ø  Discourage hypocrisy, superstitions, ostentations, cheating, bribery, nepotism etc. Avoid hatred or envy against any one.
Ø  Depend upon the earnings of self toil so as to live with honor and dignity. The wealth gained through deceit brings degradation in moral values and character.
Ø  Motivate people to extend help to poor, patients, destitute and needy.
Ø  Promote universal brotherhood and never curse anyone.
Ø  Conveys to neither adopt special dress code nor discourage against any right type of dress.
Ø  Do not demand or accept any offerings during initiation to God words.
Ø  Avoid vices of anger, lust, greed, egoism, attachment which tend to promote mental pollution. Do not allow mind to overpower soul.
Ø  Never discriminates masses on the basis of caste, creed, color, language and province.
Ø  Saint always forgives the ill doings and prays even for the persons who sometimes develop ill feelings for him.
Ø  His sermons are straight forward (without smears of falsehood) since he is fearless.
Ø  Saints never display miracles for allurements and appeasement.
Ø  Never gets involved in dirty politics.
Ø  True saints possess full regulation on their desires.
Ø  They visit various places to guide for motivation of souls and deep involvement in noble cause.
Ø  He pleads that visualization of spiritual master is possible during human generation.
Ø  The language used during spiritual discourse is simple, steak and inspiring. He explains matters related to divine instances. His sermons are based upon superb ideology, experiences and blessings.
Ø  Conveys that our soul is a minute, subtle and refined component of Supreme Divine Super-soul.
Ø  Relieve the people from materialistic desires, tensions and sufferings.
Ø  Guide the followers to attain salvation through concentration on God words.
It is very difficult to decide upon the eloquent characteristics of true saint. A wise person should always follow the righteous principles of life decorated with basic values of sincerity, justice and humanity with the kind benevolence of Spiritual guide. According to blissful quote of Shri guru Nanak Dev Ji,’ Poora hove guru, poori hove jukat; khilendiyan pilendiyan gharr bethe hove mukat’. The version suggests that when you’re spiritual guide is truthful, your faith in him becomes complete and you achieve emancipation.
The Soul Power:
The soul is celestial, invisible, immortal, share of supernatural power in human beings and other organisms. It has the stable, endless and eternal energy. Soul cannot be spoiled or damaged through materialistic objects or situations. It adapts to virtuous trends of truth and morality but remains away from illusions, hypocrisy, distress, deceit, pretence and ostentations. Soul is blessed with Divine virtue and truth. It becomes capable to cherish the inner radiance and continuous sweet melody (vibratory sound) which has been blessed as perpetual resonance, eternal sound or pleasing music (Anhad-naad or Bange-elaahi). It tries to remains affirmed with spiritual guide as it always motivates to attend religious congregations. The spiritual elevation can be achieved through regular meditation on God words which is blessed by spiritual guide. Thus the devotees attain virtuous knowledge about origin, objectives, destiny of life and attempts for seeking salvation.  
The Spiritual Discourse:
The practice of religion generally includes commemoration of Divine actions under the direction of spiritual guide through sermons, initiation, meditation, sacrifices, public or social services and other aspects of human culture. The instances, examples and narrations preached during discourse are very delightful, lucid, forceful and straight forward, touching the day-to-day problems (may be personal, collective, material, social or spiritual). The path of salvation and spiritual emancipation can only be achieved in the form of human race. The password, key word or the method of meditation which is the ultimate goal of salvation lies with the guide. Only he can guide and inspire our soul (Atma) to merge with the eternal source of matter, plasma and energy (Parmatma or God).
Attempts for Search:
Everyone should understand that there is no specific age for search of true guide to achieve final objectives of life. The righteous situations help the general masses to adopt spiritual guide. To decide upon: the People listen to sermons through radio, T.V., U-tube or Face book; parents, elderly relatives, neighbor or friends can help; the descriptions of renowned saints in religious literatures; people visit religious places like temples, mosques, gurudwara, churches and many other places of worship to seek guidance through prayers and religious congregations with the assistance of priests and prophets; certain persons decide to spend many days or years with religious advisers. In the real sense, when a person stays at a safe, clear and silent place, offers prayer, concentrates on Third eye with meditation and tries for visualization of Divine Master, may become capable to decide upon true spiritual guide. Those who love and live for true ‘Guru’, become successful to find him and Divine God from within. Develop full faith and confidence for complete life because fortunate persons become capable to approach the spiritual guide.
We should always find appropriate words and expressions to convey our regards and reverence. His grace and kindness are par-excellence.
