Kartik Inspirations 2018 - Day 31

Looking Forward

By Sacinandana Swami

Welcome to this last part of the Kartik inspirations. The time has come to look back over our shoulder and take inventory of what we experienced in terms of special insights, new realisations and findings we received this month. Ask yourself: ‘What stood out for me? What do I want to implement in my life?’ Collect this and then take the second step: ask for blessings and empowerment so that the findings and insights you want to import into your life will manifest.

This is something like a sankalpa. A sankalpa means finding an inner orientation, an intention, which one forms into a declaration of purpose and then brings into one’s life. It is a new intention you could say. However, a sankalpa derives its strength not from one’s own good wishes, but from the blessings of the Lord. In the Srimad Bhagavatam (11.15.26) Krishna speaks about the power of sankalpa: “A person who has faith in Me and who absorbs his mind in Me, the fulfiller of all desires, will achieve his desired object by that very means.”

So, absorb your mind into something you would like to do and then with faith in Krishna and a good prayer to Him for success, take that into your life. You will see, it will actually work and brighten your life, just like a lamp can illuminate a whole house.
Coming to an end, I also want to say something personal. While I recorded these inspirations I saw all of you in front of my inner eye: in Australia, America, Europe, Germany, Switzerland and other places. Throughout the month, I have become attached to this form of communication. And now our ways will part somewhat. But I want to invite you to stay together! Every month I publish a newsletter called Saranagati packed with inspirations on two pages. If you want to be and remain in this sanga you can subscribe to it on my webpage sacinandanaswami.com* and in this way we can keep on associating.

Most important to me is: I wish you all the best, may this month of Kartik and its incredible blessing stay with you for a long, long time and I hope to see you somewhere sometime. All the best and haribol!
