Self Introspection – Concept to evolve & find enlightenment by Nate Natesan


1) Release me from the never-ending chain of desires so I may live in peace with absolute contentment
2) Free my mind from the darkness of lust and fill my soul with the light of divine love
3) Let me not live to eat & indulge in the unreal outer self, eat but to live, evolve & realize my real Inner self
4) Let me not use words as missiles that injure, use them but gentle sparingly for comfort & cure
5) Let me not forget my brittle dwelling of glass so throw not I stone wherever I glance
6) Enlighten my mind with the knowledge of thee and releasing the weight that scholarship brings
7) Detach my self from the bondage of my ego so differentiated am I no more
8) Let good tidings of others forever bring joy unqualified and merge my soul with that of one & all
9) Inspire in me the sense of surrender at thy lotus feet so sorrow not I see, but your dance to stay on my feet
10) Let me not do any work for rewards & fame but let every act be dedicated to thy name
11) Help me eleminate the chatter in my mind so I stay connected with thy name on my mind
12) Help me to enrich & protect my subjective mind to filter & deflect the objective mind
13) Help me to manage attractions and replusions so I stay balanced, detached and never in agitation
14) When you finally grace me to thy shore, Let me please come with my friends galore


  1. Self Introspection is churning of our mind or consciousness. In Bhagavdam, there is a highly celebrated story called churning of the ocean of milk or Samudra Manthan. The Lord had devas as well asasuras in His consciousness. After churning or introspection of His consciousness and getting rid of the asuras or negative vasanas the Lord reached the highest state of enlightenment with Goddes Lakshmi emerging in his consciousness. Goddes Lakshmi gives spiritual prosperity to every devotee who introspects his or her consciousness and evolves. Goddess Lakshmi resides in the consciousness of all those who evolve. Goddess Lakshmi instils contenment in us thus and we start looking inward rather than indulge in the material world. The purpose of human birth is to evolve. Awareness to the concept of evolution of the mind, intellectual conviction and commitment to evolve is absolutely essential. Thus with clarity of the goal any of the various means, path or marg can be pursued depending upon individual aptitude. All the paths be it Gnan, Bhakti or Karma will converge and lose the distinction and all the paths follwed in right earnest will help one to evolve. We have to be aware of the difference between the means and the end or goal.
