    Become zero to become hero

    Whenever a soul wants to be attracted by other soul or souls, it is only desire for fame, which has its root in egoism. If one makes himself as zero, he will become hero, since the grace or power of God enters into him. Arjuna without Krishna (God) was defeated even by hunters from the forest. When he was associated with Krishna, he defeated all great warriors and became the topmost hero. Hanuman is the greatest hero in every aspect because, He always thinks Himself as zero. He sat on a stone like a school boy, when other monkeys were expressing their capacities to jump over the sea. Other monkeys were posing as heroes. He sat silently making Himself as zero.

    . But He became the real hero by the grace of God and crossed the sea just by one short jump! He declared Himself as the weakest monkey (Mattah pratyavarah Kashcit – Ramayana). Therefore learn to be attracted to God and not to attract others. Desire for fame is also a wine to induce the egoism. When Vivekananda was roaming in the streets of America, nobody cared for him. When he stood on the stage, then also nobody was attracted to him. But when he surrendered himself to his Guru, the power entered him and he attracted crowds by the divine knowledge – showers! If you become the absolute zero, you will be made infinite hero by God.

    Those who are exalted will be made low, and those who are low will be exalted by the King! This is what the faithful are taught, thus we should always know to have humble attitudes towards any and everyone, no matter the situation. There may be times we slip up, but so long as we remain faithful in heart and torn for our wicked deeds, the Father does forgive and set us back on the righteous road.

    The One who sacrificed for our sins has shown us what it means to be humbled, though He is King, and the one who was resurrected the 3rd day has taught us what it means to be low, though He sits at the right hand of the Most High.

    Show true faith and belief by keeping His works and commandments, and following in His steps bearing the cross you must bear. And the reward of eternal life will not be far at all.
