Keertana was down with fever that day. She was concerned as children got their first trip to their cousins in USA scheduled that week.
Keertana: Papa, do you think I will recover from this fever in time?
Siva: Yes. Your Mom, Krishna and Me will give 25% of our energy to you. You should be OK by tomorrow morning.
Keertana was surprised.
Siva: We are ONE family. A family is like ONE body. Everyone of us is like a part of our family-body. Say Krishna is our hands, I am the legs, Mom is the stomach.
Keertana: What about face?
Siva: Ok, you are like the face.
Keertana seemed happy.
Siva: Every part is important. If one part is not in good shape, other parts feel it too. Now you are sick, therefore automatically the Energy from the other 3 of us will flow to you.
Keertana was silent. She went to bed that night skipping her dinner. As usual we did not use any medicine, we used cold pack on her head. She got up in the morning, still looking down, yet she wanted to go to school.
Siva: Take bath first, then we will see.
Keertana took bath and she was looking OK. We found her Temperature was normal too! We were jubilant.
Keertana (pondering): Papa, are you OK?
Siva: Yes, why?
Keertana: You lost 25% of your Energy, right?
Keertana: How will you get back your Energy?
Siva: No problem. I meditated more last night and must have got my Energy back.
Keertana was looking happy. She went to school normally and had a perfect day.
Right on the day of their trip to USA, Krishna was down with fever. Keertana was stunned on realizing this, and was overheard saying that we got to meditate more that day. This time around, we used fever medicine for Krishna and they had a smooth sailing.
If we think someone is part of our family, Energy transmission takes place automatically whenever needed, however far we live. We can call it Love.
Later I would expand this family-body concept from 4 of us to include relations, friends, school, workplace, community and so on till we include entire world. We came to this planet to expand our family through Love. Expansion is happiness. Expansion is Wisdom.
There are two kinds of people among us and accordingly there are two ways available for us to expand.
1) Some of us (usually Women) are kind at heart, therefore Love is natural for them. The more they include people in their family, the more they expand (and also become meditative).
2) Some of us (usually Men) are extremely smart. Meditation is the natural way for them. Meditation leads them to Love. And Love leads to expansion.
