The amazing potentials of spirituality
manifested in the visible world often appear to be supernormal or mysterious. The associated phenomena appear as unreal or impossible to most of us because of non-compatibility of the "cause-effect relationship" vis-a-vis the known laws of Nature. However, those, who have realized the deeper depths of human mind see these as the natural effects of refinement and focused use of the immense powers of firm determination and intrinsic orientation of the activated vital force of the subconscious, unconscious and super conscious layers of mind.
The potentials of human mind - reflected in intellect, sentiments and internal aspirations, unless channelized creatively towards clearly focused objectives, remain engaged in imaginary thoughts and dreams which might serve well the purpose of entertainment, self-satisfaction or mere time-pass, but are good for nothing else.
Because of the agile tendency of mind and its general nature of searching joy in comforts, it likes to rove in the colored dreamland of illusive plans triggered by its ever-new ambitions and imaginations. Lot of people around us may be seen engrossed in the hype of optimism without proper planning or creative expression of their ideas and sincere endeavors. Their 'dreams' of success seldom materialize and hardly offer any thing other than irritation of failures and feeling of despair. The major causes of their failures is lack of - talents, vision and firm determination.
Positive thinking coupled with strong will power naturally cultivates the creative zeal and helps one endeavor what may lead to marvelous success in the chosen domain of life. At the root of astonishing potentials of human body and mind lies the aroused power of determination and unperturbed zeal of the inner self. Acharya Sharma had always encouraged and inspired inculcation and active elevation of this zeal - Manasvita. The brilliance of intellect, excellence of creative talents and sagacity of mind are, in his views, manifestation of this internal power.
In his words - "firm resolution, before sincere endeavor toward a goal, is like sowing the seeds in a field. Like a farmer works hard, takes care of the saplings and organizes necessary means for safe growth of the crops, a determined person too should make best use of his or her potentials and willpower to steadily proceed towards the deserving goal." He defines samkalpa - sincere pledge with firm determination, as an expression of Manasvita - the vital force of inner mind.
When one sincerely pledges or resolves to endeavor for achieving a goal after thorough evaluation of his own potentials vis-a-vis clear vision of the likely difficulties along the chosen path, and sows the seed of samkalpa in his alert mind, he almost ensures the success in advance. Glorious accomplishment of a samkalpa materializes only if the latter is creatively adopted and followed as sincerely as an ascetic discipline (vrata). No hindrance, adversity, passion or avarice could disturb the one who is bond by a true samkalpa. Eminent success is indeed attained by such courageous personalities who are endowed with Manasvita.
This volume elucidates the meaning, realization, source of expansion and escalation, and creative use of Manasvita. It also unfolds the secrets of supernormal expression of talents and the achievements of the architects of world history. It illustrates how the intrepid kings, trenchant scholars, scientists, great social reformers and yogis like - Alexander the Great, Maharana Pratap, Garrison, Darwin, Chanakya, Winston Churchill, Paramhans Yogananda, etc, had attained glorious success because of their Manasvita and dedication to the samkalpa. Added to this, the adept guidance of Acharya Sharma on the adoption of positive thinking as a virtuous habit
and arousal of willpower make this volume, a masterpiece of deliberations on "Total Psychology and Perfect Personality Development"...
