Mental activity is much more real than gross ones, It is only reason every enlightened beings said purify your mind.
Spirituality – a way to touch untouched
In modern times spirituality is considered as a hurdle in development. If you are spiritual then you are considered as an old fashion or outdated person.
But question is – is it really a hurdle or a way to touch untouched.
What people thinks about this
- Is it hurdle in modern development
- It is like going backward
- It stops us to enjoy material world
- It stop us to live luxurious life
- it keeps us away from modern world
- it stops us to gain material wealth
- don’t have time
- it’s outdated in today’s time
- I am not believe in God or creator
And list goes on ……..
But reality is totally opposite. Spirituality is a mechanism not designed just for sitting in a cave and achieving some higher purpose (which is obvious nonsense for ordinary people), it is mechanism or tool for every being to achieve fullest ot touch the untouched
Need of this is much high in today’s time. We are developing materially but same time becoming unstable inside, so if you are mentally unstable how you can enjoy outer world. Frankly it is not going backward it is going in future J . Spirituality never stops anyone from enjoying anything rather it tells how to enjoy without indulging in it. It never stops you from having luxurious life but it definitely reminds that is not only things in life.
Very few of the fewest actually see the GOD or creator (for those who actually believe). Spirituality is not about believing or accepting. It is practical verifiable process that everyone can experience. Spirituality is like insurance scheme ( just shake for understanding, it cannot be so cheap) if you invest 1 hour out of 24 hours it will give you much more output of whole 24 hours of work in lesser time you can imagine in much accurate way J. It will increase your productivity of work.
In today’s’ time we got wrong definitions of nearly everything like growth, modern, intellectuals, enjoyments. People thinks building spy-scraper is growth, running after money is growth. Being modern means- walking half naked with transparent clothes, having uncontrolled and illicit sex, cheating and buttery words is sign of modernization. Jugglery with words is synonyms of being intellectuals and by this jugglery of the words they make you fools. Enjoyments definitions so narrow now that it cannot go beyond money and sex. We choose partners on basis of how much money they have or on basis of sex. Every years we change our relationships like changing old clothes and going to buy new ones and we call it our extended family.
With human mind there is one problem you can train it in both directions. Take an example killing of people or animals is not good and it is prohibited nearly in all religions but some people train their mind in such way that there is nothing wrong in it rather than they enjoy it. But question is does that make your act right in universal sense, despite your acceptance consequence will be there for it.
we need to understand things as they are rather than molding them according to our needs.
Deep pure & austerity – foolishness or spiritual Fact & moral behavior
Purity and austerity two forgotten words at least in today’s time, it is now an obstacle in development or to be so called modernization, it is old fashion to be an open minded people. People generally questioned that we had great people in olden days but now we don’t have that much capable people but why and what happened to us, despite we are so much advanced in technological field.
It is true that we as a human is much more advanced in intelligence compare to animals, so it is but obvious for us to have different and advanced behavior and morality compare to them.
When you born as a human (you born with a lot of background of previous life karma) you have different goal to achieve in life and to achieve this you have to follow prescribed rules given by Vedas or GOD (Like Shreemad Bhagawat Gita). If you go beyond these rules it is a deviation from path and for this nature herself (representing divine mother or you can call ‘itself’) is going to give you rewards, forget about GOD intervention. Even if we don’t believe that Vedas is GOD’s words, even then we can not deny that Vedas was and still is much more advanced in every field including science and cosmology, so by going in this way also we have to listen this ultimate guidance.
Nature works in perfect, unbreakable rule despite your powers. No one ever broke these laws and no one ever will be able to do this , so how we can even imagine ourselves beyond nature, Nature don’t discriminate on the basis of the gender, color, and race!!! It is perfect without the flaw.
One of the most basics attribute of GOD is – purity and austerity, those who have even this single quality is top most person in the eyes of GOD himself, forget about common people. It gives something unique power to you so that you can cross the crowd and be in the top in the queue. It is not just theory we can find proof from various scriptures and person of higher degree of the awareness, like swami Vivekananda, Sri Ramana Maharsi, Rama Krishna, and many more ….
No doubt it is difficult but surely not impossible and if you do then surely you will get un-comparable rewards for your work. Not for in this life but also for coming lives (definitely for those who believes)
What is happening and why so much problems (sins), when we observe we find that we have corrupt population (this word you can find many English translation of the Indian scripture, meaning is population born from impurity). Corrupt population will create only problems and it is already defined in the Bhagawatam and Gita. So now you can see purity is not just for you but it will affect many lives.
If you are able to uplift even one soul by any way (by your work, words, appearance (this word is for only intelligent people who can imagine this how appearance can uplift a soulJ)) this will be much worth and valuable.
Surely it’s not a foolishness or madness it is the perfect way to achieve what is not possible by any other means!!!!!
protect your mind – don’t read or watch just anything….
Now we have wish list for everything. Our wish-list is nothing but collection of advertisements or in more technical word brainwash to choose what they want rather than what you want. It is indeed true in every respect. we are surrounded by artificial lights so that we cannot see real one most authenticated-true ones. It’s not that no one can see what is real, but very few are capable of doing so.
There is tremendous rubbish everywhere in form of books, talks, freedom. everyone has tongue & self-claimed little intelligence on which they want to say something and want to be listened by everyone as it is words from GOD, they write their own life experience as they lived there life with moral code of conduct and honesty. Tragically we are in same category we are also stupid enough to follow & admire them & this nonsense people chain create more and more nonsense people. Two wrongs doings cannot make anything right.
In the time wheel today’s time is Iron Age or Dark Age, where morality is symbol of backwardness and nothing wrong in anything is the philosophy, surprisingly they have their own reasons and argument for why it is not wrong. It is also said that in this time people will have tendency to argue. We are witnessing the same nature everywhere.
Once swami Vivekananda said that there is infinite books and you have very little time, choose wisely what you want to read. in simple words choose best and authentic words rather than choosing anything rubbish. Bestselling does not guarantee that words are authentic. People tend to sensitize everything just for the sake of getting more attention, so there is no question of morality? Words are so powerful that it can change your body and mind chemistry, it can make you happy and it can make you so miserable that life looks like hell. So you must cautious while choosing so powerful object. Atomic science itself is not a problem but we can use it in our favor or against us, it’s all depends on us. Don’t try to read everything whatever you get, just filter it out, choose what is best for you and your mind. Reading everything is nothing less than self-destruction, while reading you have to visualize but imagine what happens with your mind when you saw visual of rubbish things. Internet and TV is medium of this mental catastrophe.
There are people which opted a lot many things to secure their mental health & behavior :-
1- Many people don’t watch or read newspaper, even if they watch they prefer like national or radio news style, does this effect them any way, no still they are getting information which meant to be for them only, but surely they are much more happier.
2- Many people also restricting themselves from watching non sense serials, they prefer more and more family channels ( which is less), does this reducing there entertainment in anyway no, in there experience it is increasing.
3- Spent time in outdoor activity or helping family members in home activities, it will deepen your bond and love
4- Engaging in some physical activity rather than just sitting watching or reading anything
5- People also restricting their online activities, it will automatically give you enough time for your family, friends or for spiritual practice which directly enhance your life.
You can opt your own methods but it should be authentic and beautiful. Never afraid to try out our own scripture, no doubt people are not interested & most probably you don’t know how to pronounce a single word of Sanskrit because you are modern and open minded but you should not worry there is plenty good and authentic books from our scripture and it is the most authentic words by human consciousness. It is also said that Vedas are the limit of human knowledge of consciousness in human body & if you will read you will find, why this is so. Life itself is beautiful don’t make it container of miseries. Feed this container with beautiful things in return it will give the most amazing things you can ever imagine.
