We conclude Chapter 7 of Mohanji Satcharita with this soul-stirring sharing by our dear Preeti Duggal. This experience shows that we may forget our beloved Parabrahma by succumbing to mind games but He never forgets us. As Mohanji says, “I am always with you, holding your hand!”
The hands that protect
by Preeti Duggal
Due to some reason, I was very upset for the past two days. Tears kept flowing down on their own as if they knew my pain. Yesterday I felt as if I was all alone in this world and no one really understood me. This thought depressed and alienated me further from everyone. I felt mentally exhausted with the intensity of these thoughts and suddenly I had the urge to lie down. As soon as I was in bed, I slept and rapidly went into a dream state.
What I describe here is the conversation that took place between Mohanji and I. In hindsight, it was not a dream at all, but an astral event that took place to help me understand the deeper meaning of my pain.
I saw myself with Mohanji. He was sitting as usual on His chair and I was on the floor next to Him. He took my hand and held it between His. I saw tears in His eyes and He said, “I really feel sad from inside when my people are unhappy. Everyone must go through the grinding of karma in this world, but don’t worry I’m always by your side holding your hand. You’re never alone as I am always walking along with you.” Suddenly my eyes opened, and it took me a couple of seconds to realize where I was. After waking up, I immediately felt better and did not feel depressed.
“Karma is not punishment oriented. It is accountability oriented. You are accountable for all your deeds, including all thoughts, words, and actions.” – Mohanji
In the evening I went to see Mohanji at the ashram as I do every day. He was surrounded by people, so I prostrated at His feet and went into the kitchen to get His dinner ready. About half an hour later, Aishwarya, our beautiful daughter in the ashram went to ask Him about dinner. He responded, “Whenever Duggal is ready with it.” I went up to Him and informed Him that the dinner was ready and served. He called everyone to eat with Him. By sharing food, He expresses His love and showers blessings on everyone visiting Him at the ashram.
After dinner, He came to me and said, “Thank you Duggal for everything that you do for us, you are the heart of this house.” When I glanced into His eyes, they gave me the same reassurance that I had in the morning. I said, “Mohanji, if I am the heart then you are the heartbeat, without which there is no existence, we are dead.” At that moment, I felt like falling at His feet and thanking Him for everything He does for us. He never shows His magnanimity and is always humble. On the other hand, we want importance and acknowledgement for every little thing we do. When He says, I am with you, He delivers and stays true to His word. Thank you Mohanji for always holding my hand and taking me through this cycle called life. I surrender every breath at your lotus feet.
“When I say, “I’m with you” I mean it. Because I don’t need the body to be with you.”
