Understanding the Divinity

if there is any word which is mysterious than word “Mysterious” itself is the word Divine. from bliss to unknowable and unexplainable everything comes under this single magical word Divine. if there is anything which nearly all religion says that we must achieve this goal in this human form of life. there is huge importance is given on human form just because this form of life is very very difficult to get. we gone so many different levels of consciousness with so many different forms that it is really hard to achieve this human form.

Divinity is not a word it is state which is easy to achieve yet very few is capable for this. there are different levels of human understanding, not everyone is capable to absorb or understand this mysterious knowledge but it does not mean that they should exclude from this ultimate truth, at – least in this land (Bharat or india) it is so. people from this land have been studied and researched all human except from food to clothing. they designed methods for every levels of people consciousness, from ritualistic approach to pure meditative and tantric approach. every method is unique in its own way.

In this age (Kali yuga according to Vedic time divisions) people’s understanding is not that much developed for spiritual realm they developed much for gross level and for today’s world problem at large extent this is also the cause. purely gross development is always dangerous. for this age Vedas recommends chanting (japa meditation ) for human beings just because of our gross understanding of reality. it does not mean that all other methods are not attainable or not good it is just that it is not easily adoptable in today’s world.

Divinity does not lie in the word it is evolution from gross to subtler and at last being with ultimate reality, to achieve this we have to pass some test. we have to be egoless to start, which itself is bigger challenge for humans. now a days we already have become so intolerance :), just kidding but its true that we have much ego than previous any generation, in hindi one saying is there that “Paisa juth bulwata hi hai” means with money you will get habit of lying and with habit of lying ego will come and with ego a lot of others thing will follow. here i want to clarify that nobody is opposing the money, it is just you have to be alert to observe your mental state.
it is much complex than infinity and much easier than Zero, how wired it is :). As we develop only frontal lobe, which is only for our survival. that survival have become so big now that we can not think beyond this and it is only cause for our world problem. we need to choose to evolve rather than survive, survival will stop one day but evolution will not, survival contain very basic things we have to choose something bigger for this human form of life.

“I am that Which is not”

Spirituality – a way to touch untouched

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.

 

 

 

 

Suffering is not enough – monk

Life is filled with suffering, but it is also filled with many wonders, like the blue sky, the sunshine, the eyes of the baby. To suffer is not enough. We must also be in touch with the wonders of life. They are within us and all around us, everywhere, any time .

If we are not happy, if we are not peaceful, We cannot share peace and happiness with others, even those we love. those who live under the same roof. If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can smile and blossom like flower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will benefit from our peace.
Do we need special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this.Wherever we are, any time, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine, the presence of each other, even the sensation of our breathing. We don’t need to go to china to enjoy the blue sky. We don’t have to travel into the future to enjoy our breathing. We can be in touch with these things right now. It would be pity if we are only aware of suffering.

We are so busy we hardly have time to look at the people we love, even in our own household, and to look at ourselves. Society is organised in a way that even when we have some leisure time, we don’t know how to use it to get black in touch with ourselves. We have millions of ways to lose this precious time- we turn on the TV or pick up the telephone, or start the car and go somewhere. We are not used to being with ourselves, and we act as if we don’t like ourselves and are trying to escape from ourselves.

Meditation is to be aware of what is going on- in our bodies, in our feelings, in our minds, and in the world.If a child smile, if a adult smile, that is very important. If in our daily life we can smile, if we can be peaceful and happy, not only we but everyone will profit from it. This is most basic kind of peace work.

Thanks to monk “Thich Nath Hanh” for such a beautiful lines in his book.

THE SUN MY HEART

We know that if our heart stops breathing, the flow of our life will stop, and so we cherish our heart very much. Yet we do not notice often take the time to notice that there are other things, outside of our bodies, that are also essential for our survival. Look at the immense light we call the sun. If it stops shining, the flow of our life will also stop, and so the sun is also second heart, our heart outside our body.

This immense “heart” gives all life on Earth the warmth necessary for existence. Plants live thanks to the Sun. Their leaves absorb sun energy along with carbon dioxide from the air to produce food for the tree, the flower, the plankton. And thanks to plants, we and other animals can live. All of us – people, animals, and plants- “consume” the sun, directly and indirectly. We cannot begin to describe all the effects of the sun, that great heart outside of our body. In fact, our body is not limited to what lies inside the boundary of our skin. Our body is much greater, much more immense. If the layer of air around our Earth disappears even for an instant, “our” life will end. There is no phenomenon in the universe that intimately concerns us, from a pebble resting at the bottom of the ocean, to the movement of the galaxy millions of light years away.

The poet Walt Whitman said, “I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of stars…….” these words are not philosophy. They came from the depths of his soul. He said, “I am large, I contain multitudes”

DREAMS WITH REALITY

We heard story and also from well-known Peoples, that everyone must have a dream, without dream no point to live and achieve in our life. Yes most Peoples agree with this and me too, but one thing which is more important is “dream with reality”, yes you are right dream but facing with reality.

Many people dream, but having dream is not enough to fulfill our dreams, we must find a path to achieve this. Sometimes life plays a major role to teach us. I am not against dreaming and actually to achieve big things Dream is like a first step, but i am against living into dreams without facing reality.

Dreams must include reality, without reality dream is nothing, When we dream with reality it become feasible, may be not easy but surely not impossible, when it will feasible it gives us strength to think and when we think about something having reality in mind, we find real solutions, and when we find solution then we can achieve what we dreamed for.
