If the spiritual secrets behind the festival of  Shivratri are understood, world transformation will take place easily. Shivratri is not a festival for just Shaivites. If one studies ancient civilizations and cultures it becomes apparent that Shivratri is a festival for all souls of the world.

Not only Hindus, but Jews, Christians and Muslims also believe in an incorporeal God.  The ancient names of God such as 'Shuin' in Babylon, 'Seva' or 'Sevajya' in Syria, Egypt and Fiji; 'Sibru' in the land occupied by the progeny of Abraham and Jehova are not too different from the Sanskrit word 'Shiva', which, according to some scholars, is the confluence of two phonetic parts, 'shi' and 'va', meaning 'redeemer' and 'liberator' from sins and sufferings.

1) God is one who is accepted by all, He is incorporeal.
2) God is the Supreme,
3) God is beyond all bondages of action,
4) God is omniscient,
5) God is boundless or unlimited in all His attributes.

God is the father, mother, friend, preceptor / guide, teacher and protector of all souls. He is the only one who has no parents, guide, teacher or protector above Him. 

Unlike human souls, God doesn't come into the cycle of birth and death. Hence He is called ' Ajanma' (One who doesn't take birth). It is said in the Gita, “I am 'Mahakaal ' (the great death). Death can never approach me.”  Upon taking birth, humans are bound to act and get the fruit of their actions. God, however, is 'Akarta' (one who does not perform any action) and 'Abhokta' (one who doesn't experience the result of any action).

God is said to be 'Trikaldarshi' (one who knows the three aspects of time – the past, present and future).

God is described as Trilokinath or Lord of the three worlds.

He is also described as Trinetri or one with ‘three eyes’. He bestows the knowledge of the third eye on humans.

The Supreme Soul, God, incarnates in the Confluence Age, (Sangamyug ) and educates human beings on how to lead a pure and elevated life. His sermons are called shrimat. It is the real Gita sermonised by God Himself  that becomes instrumental in establishing a new world order, a new religion called Adi Sanatana Devi devata Dharm (The Original Eternal Deity Religion).

Since His birth is divine and spiritual, God is the One who does not have parents. That's why the word 'Shambhu' is suffixed to Shiva. 'Shambhu' is short for 'Swayambhu' – the One who is self created.  The Supreme Soul has no father or mother, friend or relative, preceptor or protector. He is also described as the One who is beyond the cycle of birth and death.

According to mythology, Sri Krishna was born to human beings, had parents, a teacher, he became old, and was killed. He worshipped Lord Shiva before the Maha Bharat war took place.  So, considering all these aspects, he can only be called a deity because of his divine qualities but not as the Supreme Soul, Paramatma, God or an Avatar or incarnation of God.

When God Shiva comes, He sermonises Gita, and establishes the 'Original Eternal Deity Religion' (Adi Sanatan Devi- Devata Dharm).  This is the religion that continues in the Golden and Silver Ages. (Satyug and Treta yug). God’s descent and incarnation on earth is known as Shivratri or Shiv jayanti. Since He sermonizes the Gita it is also the birth of the Gita.

Positive Thoughts

Reform that which is spoilt.

When we see something that is spoilt or negative, it is easy to get negative. Such negative thoughts create hopelessness and we are not able to do anything about it. We also tend to talk to others about it, describing it. Instead, if we concentrate on what we can contribute to make it better, it is more fruitful, for us too. Today I will pick out one thing in my life that is not right. I will do something to make it right, to make it better. I will contribute in some way to make it better and also appreciate myself for the positive contribution I am making.

The Mind Creates Destiny

The most important part of you is your mind (not your brain - the brain
is the hardware and the mind creates the software). Care for your mind,
make friends with it, always feed it healthy food, engage it in
positive activity, exercise it with knowledge and wisdom. Like a garden
returns fragrance and beauty according to the care invested, so your
mind will repay you with thoughts, ideas and visions of great beauty
when tended and invested with care. Your mind is not made of matter but
it does matter what you give it and what you create with it. Where your
mind goes, you go. What your mind creates becomes your destiny.

Filling Myself And Others With Invisible Treasures

Soul consciousness or the awareness of the soul is the key to the internal treasures of the original and eternal qualities of the soul. The moment I switch on the awareness of the soul, a spiritual point of subtle light or energy, situated at the centre of the forehead, I start accessing the qualities of peace, love and joy that lie hidden inside my consciousness. Since these are not physical treasures, they are limitless. It's like suddenly I become an owner of an ocean of these qualities. The ocean is inside me and not anywhere outside.

When we hear the word 'ocean', the first characteristic that comes to mind is limitless. So suddenly I am the owner of an ocean of peace, love, power and bliss. I can draw and drink as much of these qualities as I want and these qualities will never get over, because an ocean is an unlimited, tireless and big hearted provider or giver, never expecting anything in return. The ocean will never refuse me, but, as stated above, the key to accessing the ocean is the awareness of the soul. It is a common experience of many that the moment we are in the consciousness of the body, we suddenly feel empty of these treasures and we experience emotions of peacelessness or sorrow or hatred or jealousy or powerlessness or fear etc., because in those moments, we have lost access to the ocean.
