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 If you are spiritual then you are considered as an old fashion or outdated person.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- it’s outdated in today’s time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.
This world came in my mind whiling reading, how thought can alter your mind and cause pain, which can be much painful than any physical pain.
Why so much pain in this world, no body, everybody is suffering from some kind of pain, whether it is physical or mental. The difference is- physical pain is visible everybody can see but thought pain is totally invisible it is so close with you yet nobody can see this. Everybody has so much chaos.
Sometimes I think it is just our perception by which we are suffering or it is our mistake or it is really our fate, we have to face it to learn.
When I see a child I see two state either happy or crying, exclude sleep . Do they also feel pain by thought or there thought is so innocent that it cannot create pain at least for child. Here perception of pain can be different may be he feels but representation is different – crying can be just an indication.
When you become old enough to say and put logical mind behind everything then we start to feel pain by words. When your heart starts crying you cannot do anything except to feel it for that moment. When your heart cry’s it is far more painful than any bodily pain. You know everything about pain but still you can’t do anything, it’s not body it’s thought.
When you feel the love, yes I know it is very special thing, it does not do anything magical with your body rather it does something very special in your mind and as a consequence it changes your thought. Same thing happens with thought pain.
When you are not able to accept something by your heart then it becomes thought pain.it can be disastrous but if you are intelligent enough it can also open a window to understand yourself, real life. I know I am little bit philosophical here but you have to bear this little bit, you know sometimes it can be helpful
If thought or feeling can generate pain so it can also cure this, some genius out there says that think opposite but it is not going to work, it is like you are stretching a string with both hands and assuming it will join both ends.
I will also not say that forget about this because if you do then you will never learn any lesson from this and as a consequence you will face the same situation again.
I would rather say try to accept this, I know it’s hard and if you accept then where is a question of pain but let me assure you it will not be as easy as I am saying. Initially, it will also create pain but it will reduce your pain. This painful blessing help you to accept, so when you are ready to accept then try to move on after all it is only way and that’s why you born.
