A Father’s Regret and a Soul’s Message
“My death was not a natural death.”
These were the first words of a soul that I channelled a couple of days ago. He was a 65-year-old successful business tycoon before his mother, his brother and his sister-in-law, working separately, got black magic done on him till it took his life away.
They knew fully well that his two sons were fairly young to be taking over the business. But they were greedy to take over his business themselves.
As a medium and as a person who works with passed away souls, it was not new for me to hear from a soul that the death was not natural.
But the intensity and level of greed that human beings have stooped to continues to shake me. It made me realise that people will go to great extent to gain something that they eventually have to lose when they pass over and leave this life behind.
I asked him a question, “Do you regret spending so much time in creating this business empire? Do you regret not being able to spend time with your children?”
He replied, “It was the purpose of my life to do what I was doing and I’m very happy. I don’t regret a single moment. The only thing I regret is that I fruitlessly thought I have forever to live. This is why I did not teach my children at a young age. Not just the tricks of the trade, but the way humans are – their real faces, their actions and their intentions.”
He recalls, “I wish I had listened to my wife and started teaching my children to deal with life just like the Bhagavad Gita teaches us.”
“We don’t read the Bhagavad Gita enough. We just read it to think what Krishna has preached. But we often forget that Arjuna has also lived, that Draupadi has also lived, that Duryodhana actually existed.” He continued.
And it was at this moment, I got shivers across my body. I began to think of his children as Abhimanyus who didn’t know the chakravyuh, but are thrust in the middle of it.
What keeps us from making our children the Abhimanyus who can break the chakravyuh? Just the fact that we can protect them at all times and then we feel helpless when we pass over.
“Please just tell my children to be careful of our relatives.”
He said that he wants them to go through the Bhagavad Gita and not read it like a holy book, but read it like a practical book. And I think we all need to know, learn, accept and do our Dharma.
So, the whole thing touched me at many levels.
The first level was the reality. We should expose our children or our heirs to the harsh realities of life – the faces of greed, jealousy, hatred, anger, and control. These negative emotions can come from strangers & relatives alike.
The second is that our lives are limited. We cannot assume that we will live forever and that we have enough time to prepare and always support those who we love. We must live each day as our last – full of positivity, life and doing what we love.
And the third is that not every businessman regrets having spent his life working hard. He has built his business not only for himself but for his family as well, so that they can live comfortably. He knows that when he passes over, he is not leaving his children empty handed and that they will be taken care of.
As you live this moment through, hope you all take this time to live it too!
