She further stressed that this state of mind can be achieved by remaining connected with the eternal source of stability; the omniscient,omnipotent and omnipresent formless God.This enablesthe human mind to take wise decisions and empowers it with the ability of facing ups and downs in life with composure.While drawing analogy from a strong tree; Satguru Mata Ji explained that itwithstands all weather conditions and transitions of various seasons. The tree which is once lush green, blossoms and bears fruits,but also later witnesses the falls season in which it appears to be leafless and brown;but continues to stand firm due to the strong bond with its roots.Her Holiness exhorted human beings to have firm belief andfaith in the eternal stable formless God who will see us through thick and thin of life in a state of equanimity.
Earlier,while heralding the commencement of the Samagam on 5th December 2020,in Her message to humankind, Her Holiness appealed all to prioritize imbibing human values while avoiding attachment to materialistic gains and considering them as mere means to dwell on this earth. These possessions, Her Holiness said, should not be considered as the ultimate achievements.In her discourse on the first day,Satguru Mata Ji explained that nothing in this Universe is stable;everything is subject to change and is destructible, which was vividly reflectedin the Covid-19 situation.Attachment with the constantly changing materialisticattributes affects us emotionally,mentally and physicallytoo.By being connected with onestable God and implementing human values through our thoughts, word and actions,we can live in solaceand bliss.Her Holiness further explained that in human life;ups and downs,favourable and unfavourable situations, negative and positive thoughts are a part and parcel, which one cannot escape.Composure is the only solution, and taking recourse to it can strengthen our ability to face the situations effectively.
