My Guru’s Grace

My son is very sweet and creative. He has a rare combination of interests. He had completed his post- graduation in Design management in 2010 and searched for a job in the same field, but did not get it. So he started staying at home and doing something with software applications or watching some funny videos on YouTube on his computer. His sleeping and waking hours were abnormal (at least to me). He used to sleep at 3 or 4 in the night and mostly woke up at any time after 12 during day. Gradually he would not want to mix up even with his neighbours and this had become his routine. Following this he lost interest and didn’t want to study any further for any specialization. Then slowly he started his own company, an online magazine for social issues. Though he was not a software professional, he learned everything himself that was related and necessary for his online website through web tutorials and through discussions with online friends and my husband (who is a computer professional). I knew he was working very hard to do something good. But his sleeping, eating habits were very weird and almost had no social circle. I was more worried about his health and lack of socialization. Though he was giving his 100% on the work front, like any other “one-man” websites, it was not yielding any good result.

We were wondering what would he be doing ten years down the lane. We didn’t want him to leave his passion for his website, and on the other hand, he could not afford to waste the best time of his life by confining himself to his room and living in future and being very stubborn to not to continue with any conventional studies. All of us were very upset and we did not know what to do. We desperately wanted him to go out, meet people and mix with the main stream. I have been praying Guruji to show us some way. But nothing worked, it seems. Then, few weeks ago I wrote all my botherations and mailed it to Guruji. At once I felt very light in my heart. As per Guruji’s advise I didn’t stop, to do the best I could do and to motivate him. Then all of a sudden things started moving very fast- at rocket speed. For a change, my son sent his CV to my husband (which he had been resisting for a long time). Within a couple of days my husband met a friend of his for last 25 years, on an official meeting. He told my husband that he had shifted from the present position to training section in the same company and would be going to start a course in information security. As a computer professional, my husband knew our son’s potential and the fact that he would be interested in this field. My husband talked to him and he immediately agreed to join the course, which never happened in the past. Now everything is in order as he gets up early in the morning, eats food regularly, goes out and meet people, is continuing the education in the same field which was close to his heart and following his passion also. This is the grace of my Guruji!

    I have now been following people's stories on Art of Living for a few months. I must say without any doubt that countless miracles have happened since then. His Grace is constantly flowing. I just want to say "Thank You" Guruji for all the things you have done for me.
