The Inner Master’s Guidance Helps Sidestep Spiritual Harm
By Murali, Singapore
The ECK or the Holy Spirit speaks to us all the time, providing guidance, protection and even answers to problems we face in life. All one has to do is be humble enough to listen to the silent voice of the ECK and follow its guidance. Sometimes this spiritual guidance comes by way of ‘waking dream’ experiences that help us sidestep spiritual harm.
I was driving along the highway, feeling frustrated and agitated about an issue that had come up between me and a colleague. Before I knew it, I was having angry thoughts and negative energy was slowly building up within. Just as this was happening, my thoughts were disrupted by a sharp sound of a very tiny object that flew out of nowhere and hit the front windscreen. It was as if I received a small jolt from the sound energy. I knew right away that it was a quick reminder from the Inner Master to watch my negative train of thoughts before they caused me spiritual harm. So I let the angry thoughts go.
Later that evening, the negative thoughts came back a second time as I was driving to dinner with a couple of colleagues. I aired my frustrations to them and they mentioned having similar experiences. As we neared the restaurant, I noticed that the place was about ready to close. There was an empty parking space right in front of the restaurant, so I stopped behind a parked vehicle, and without getting out, I asked a restaurant staff if we could eat there. While engaged in conversation, I didn’t realize the car was slowly moving forward. Even though my foot was on the brake pedal, I wasn’t pressing hard on it. I then heard a ‘thump’ and a scratching sound as the front bumper of my car made contact with the rear bumper of a parked van. Thankfully the plastic front bumper was only dislodged slightly and I was able to push it back into place. Through this incident the Inner Master gave me a second warning that I was heading for a collision (spiritual harm) by reviving the negative train of thoughts from the day.
That night I sat down and wrote in my dream journal, a note to the Inner Master to surrender my anger and frustrations. I also asked to be shown the reason behind my experience in the dream state. However, when I got up the next day, I didn’t have any dream recollection. So I added the phrase, ‘Thy will be done’ to the note that I had written to the Inner Master the night before.
I then left the house to get some breakfast and came back an hour later. I reached into my pocket for the door key. To my surprise, the spare key that is usually left hanging by the front door, was in my pocket. I remembered using it to open the lock when I left home that morning. But instead of leaving it by the front door, I had absentmindedly put it into my pocket. There was a key chain attached to the key and the message on it read, “Life is like an ice cream. Enjoy it before it melts.” Yes, the Inner Master was speaking again through a third waking dream to give a ‘key’ insight to help me let go the anger and frustration.
As I contemplated on these waking dreams, I could see how the negative power was using my mind to trap and get me into trouble. Perhaps a more important realization was the subtle message from the Inner Master, that if I were to focus on negativity, I stand to lose a precious opportunity to enjoy the gifts that life brings to me. Thank you Mahanta for your constant love, guidance, and protection. May the blessings be.
