i'm an american bipolar neet with no hindu background

one day around the year 2020 i was in my bedroom.

a red orb was in the air shooting lasers at me. they hurt. (CITATION NEEDED) it wasn't EXACTLY like this but this is the best way i can describe what was happening. what was happening was scary and beyond words

then an image of Ganesha appeared briefly near the ceiling (it was about the size of a basketball) and the "evil red orb" or whatever was attacking me disappeared

i knew nothing about ganesha or hinduism. i thought to myself "isn't that the elephant god that apu worships in the simpsons?"

then i began to do research. ganesha is the remover of obstacles.

bought a Ganesha statue off Amazon but felt guilty due to my Christianity practice and gave it to my tneighbor

i also learned the chant to "summon" Ganesha by heart (or worship or contact him idk) from this video https://youtu.be/FHRv_3HWmDY

i have seen the might of Ganesha and am interested in learning more about Him, worshipping Him, and Encountering Him

my current priority is to dissolve the illusion of maya so i no longer have to suffer

recently i've been reading this pdf about ganesha: https://files.catbox.moe/3c9zxb.pdf

apparently ganesha already appearing to me is a sign i'm on the right path and ganesha is the gateway to hinduism?

also apparently i'll learn to surrender my free will to ganesha? how do i do this? i've already had a couple experiences of feeling like i was channeling and my lips and hands were moving automatically

anyone have any specific prayers of how to let ganesha take over my free will?

      maybe i'm misunderstanding? page 5 of the pdf i linked to

      >But the seeker loses one thing. He loses his free, instinc- tive willfulness. It is lost forever. Yet it is not a great loss. Man’s own personal willfulness, his animalistic free will, is a feeble and insignificant force when compared to Lord Ga∫eßa’s divine will. When beholden to God Ga∫eßa and inwardly awakened enough to be attuned to His will, it is then quite natural that the instinctive will bows down. Per- sonal likes and dislikes vanish. Limited faculties of reason and analysis are overpowered and subdued by a greater will, a cosmic will, the will of dharma. When sufficient humil- ity has been awakened, it is easy to surrender personal, in- stinctive willfulness to the greater subsuperconscious will of dharma. It happens most naturally, but very slowly, because Lord Ga∫eßa, of all the many Gods, proceeds with methodic deliberation. He is the careful, loving guide on the inner path of all seekers.

            Devotion. As a devotee all doors will be opened.

            The forces you seek are not under your thumb. If they serve you they do so out of love. For you to expect anything is a lapse in devotion.

            I have not met Ganesha, but my gateway to Hinduism was his father Shiva. I believe these lessons apply.

            Devotion is another dimension of intelligence. Intellect wants to conquer the truth. Devotion just embraces the truth. Devotion cannot decipher but devotion can experience. Intellect can decipher but can never experience. This is the choice one has to make.

            Devotion is also a way of transforming your emotion from negativity to pleasantness. Just see, people who have fallen in love do not care about what is happening in the world. The way they are, you think they are unrealistic. It is just that they have made their emotions pleasant, so their life is beautiful. That is the state of a devotee.

            So you see, it is not about what you do. Rather devotion arises from and is shown in the way you do things.

            Sure you can get a statue. Place it near you house's door and just bow whenever you're leaving your house.

            Again, don't stress too much. You seem to be wanting to follow a protocol. Believe and Ganesha will lead you out of darkness into light.

        I was raised Hindu and have never heard of such a thing. Ganesha is a cool God. He's fun loving and mischievous which is why kids love him.

        He is also a patron of arts and culture and provider of intellect.
        Like Janus in the Roman Pantheon he's the God of beginnings. He's also the remover of obstacles like you said.

        I remember going to the temple as a kid with my mom and the first idol is almost always that of Ganesha. There's not much to it, Hindu Gods aren't spiteful and full of wrath like the Abrahamic God. It's all about belief and positivity rather than strictly following some kind of a protocol.

        Don't worry too much about it.

        Picrel is the mantra, you can find it and play on Spotify or something. Godspeed.

    Ganesha is often the first dude that's invited whenever doing puja for other gods.
    He's the kid of Parvati (Shiva's wife) who was decapitated by Shiva for disrespecting him and then given an elephant head.
    Ganesha can sometimes frick with people, by placing obstacles where he thinks is appropriate. As well as removing them.

    It's more that once you've found what you're looking for, you're going to desire differently.
    Please do not ask entities to take over your will. Regardless of who you ask, good or bad, nothing good comes from asking this.

          freedom/enlightenment/dissolution of maya

            This is a process of dissolution, where even desire itself loses meaning. Many first find challenge in the desire to not desire. The lesson that comes from this is similar to the one I spoke of earlier:

            freedom/enlightenment/dissolution of maya

            Why do you want dissolution of Maya? Why do you want freedom, why do you want enlightenment? Is it because your nature compels you, or because you want to end your suffering? Is it because you believe having met Ganesha that this is your dharma, or are you seeing the general Hindu sphere as something you should be following, ie, following a crowd?
