To endure and be tolerant is to be spiritually virtuous. To be the cause of indurance and tolerance is be egotistical (Alaukik Bhumika) - Pappa

 

Our ideal mission is to achieve ‘sadhuta’ - to attain the highest spiritually virtuous qualities. Whilst we remain occupied with our déhabhav, if we are graced by the Lord when he initiates events to obliterate our déhabhav, we will either feel hurt and distressed or will feel that we are having to endure or be tolerant. Thus Bapa has stated that ‘to endure and to be tolerant is the highest spiritual virtue’. When we are conscious of the fact that we are being tolerant or that we are suffering from endurance, that in itself is an indication of our déhabhav. This is a fact we should believe and accept whole-heartedly. Therefore, we should think positively of those who cause us to tolerate and endure. In reality, it is the Lord Himself, who works through muktos, instigates events and circumstances where we are forced to be tolerant and enduring. If we fail to recognise the Lord in this instance, and proceed to confront and argue with those muktos - then they will cease to be the cause of our suffering and endurance, leaving us stranded and saturated with our egotistical déhabhav which Maharaj calls Alaukik bhumika - where we have fallen deep into the cavities of Gaulok - from there we should reach out towards Akshardham - the abode of Lord Swaminarayan. When a similar fate had befallen Swaroopanand Swami, Maharaj instructed him to seek spiritual guidance from Parvatbhai.

 

Whenever our wishes are not considered, and as long as we feel that we have to tolerate and endure others, we are still sadhaks. Once we have attained the finest spiritual virtues embodied in ‘sadhuta’ - we will not feel that we are toleranting or enduring others. More importantly, we will experience divine pleasure and bliss from being tolerant and enduring hardships.
