What you have forgotten ?

What you have forgotten ?

Your deep inner self which resides in your consciousness, your true identity, which can only be accessed by the stillness of your mind .

What is stillness of mind?

By Stillness of mind, I mean when you are not thinking about the future or the past. In fact the process of thinking itself is not being in the present ,where your heart beats with every passing second.

Life is ‘now’ and you are not the slave of your mind. The reason behind most sufferings or grief is your mind. It makes you think , makes you accomplish things but at the same time it controls you to look for more wealth, exploit things before finally exploiting yourself.

How our thoughts affect us ?

If you can’t stop thinking about material things or can’t control your thoughts then you are surely enslaved by your mind. Most of us are slaves. And that’s why we struggle to find inner peace, happiness and even struggle to find the meaning of our existence.

Enlightened are those who can feel life right in the present without thinking too much about it.

Just try to find a moment for yourself , focus on your breathing, declutter your mind from all thoughts, feel the moment residing in the eternal now, the oneness ,yes right there your existence lies, your true identity.

Life, Death and Fear

Life

We are not only gifted with life but also with death. Death follows us since we are born like a shadow of life itself. So where there is life there is death.

Death

Parents not only give birth to their offspring but they also donate death to them. They pass on light of Love and also darkness of hate to their children in some or the other way. And the darkness of mind, heart or the material world achieves nothing but fear.

Fear

Fear is natural to every living being though it is only the imagination of an uncertain future.
In spite of knowing that fear is just an imagination ,it is extremely difficult to triumph over it.

Near the Star

The perils I taste,
The icy gales I breathe,
All the pains I go through
To seek the abode of happiness!

What is it my heart seeks?
And why I exist in this chaos?
All the questions I try to find,
Up above, on the mountains !

Out in the wilderness of life,
I try to push against headwinds.
I tumble and fall on those slopes,
I try to feel divine through pain!

Up above , near the star,
Where my sweat shined,
My tears twinkled with ice
And my soul became Divine !

Is this the End ?

The End of the world? Surely not !
The end of 2020? Oh yes, hell it is !
The end of all woes? Hmmmm….
Maybe..

I am sure when the writer wrote our world he didn’t want to get bored. He wrote vicissitudes to get entertainment. So why not the actors (we of course but quite dedicated ones) enjoy the show as well! It’s tough but not impossible.

Without a doubt I can say that we have ventured out of our script , contrived a more complicated mess and surprised even our creator, our writer ( I don’t know about his intentions but he definitely wants a better ending).

So what’s going to happen in the near future ?

Well, we know our future to a great extent and we also know that we have to change that to undo all the mess we have already created !

Love , empathy , compassion is the only way forward. We have fallen, lost our people , lost everything in between but we always have to remember one thing, our beginning .

Against all odds, one very rare incident took place on this planet, the beginning of life. It is the biggest success of all times and every thing after that is bonus for us.

So just try to play your part, enjoy this life, protect this planet and follow the path which ensures happiness of every one !


Happy New Year !

Positives of 2020

Well, for most of us year 2020 is the worst year of our lives and I can’t agree more with them .

We saw so many of them lost their loved ones because of this deadly pandemic and many dreams shattered with the crumbling economy around the world. 2020 brought tears of loss more than happiness.

But we humans are very hopeful creatures. We can be very greedy too but we can never stop ourselves from being hopeful even the world is going to end tomorrow. We can hold onto little moments of joy when we are with family and friends and simply love to get lost in those tiny moments.

And yes, we got hell lot of time with our families this year, thanks to lockdown.

We focused on cooking food, washing utensils, cleaning our houses more than making our bosses happy in the professional environment. At the same time the nature which had been exploited by us got time to heal to some extent.

Well we have to do more in order to heal this planet .Our vulnerability this year became a golden moment for nature to heal. Our loss became mother Earth’s gain. So are we the villains on this planet ? Well, it depends on us, how much we care for others, how much we care for our planet !

Year 2020 stopped us , made us to think of our actions, taught us a lesson and gave us an opportunity to correct ourselves. There is life out there in the wild , the real life we should look for , the life beyond money, power and greed ! There, truly our happiness lies.

Happiness is real when shared. Let’s share our happiness with nature by protecting it, preserving it and helping it to grow with us !

The Mountains Calling

Stuck in a hazy nightmare,
Lost in an urban illusion,
Craving to get my breath,
Back from the land above !

A faint whisper wakes me,
From an urban slumber.
Holds my face and echoes
“Come to me in the land of Gods

O powerless soul! wake up,
Free yourself from this muddle,
The mess that pollutes ,
Is created by you !

O powerless soul! Come
To me and see my greatness,
How wrong you are
How minute you are !

The life which you live
Is full of greed , is so futile !
Climb, sweat and feel the pain.
Come, breathe, see the light with me !

When a Star Rains

Sneaking from the Heavens,
Showering bliss on the mortals,
How on earth it rained with snow,
Like the Gods migrated to my soul !

Darkness receded to a hole,
Tears dried under it’s showers,
How it burns to quench me,
As if I took birth thousand times !

O my lovely star ,
You healed me the moment
You came out of the shadows
And rained on me !

Merry Christmas 🎄

A Small Spark

A tiny glow in the dark,
Shivering with the cold wind.
Tormented, scared to surrender !

A struggling ray in the dark
Dented and stabbed to limp
Trembles by holding his heart !

A tiny will in the dark,
Waging a war with his broken sword
Tries to vanish an army of dark!

A fading spark in the dark
Ignites the hopes in the grave,
Before it sleeps in glorious past !

Faith vs Science

Faith has brought both chaos and order in human civilization. On one hand it has taught ethics to humankind and on the other hand it has brought the evil side of humankind .

Yes, some humans had used faith or religion for their vested interests. It wiped out many civilization in the past in some bloodied wars.

But is our faith really wrong?

We really need to know that faith in the form of religion is the invention or imagination of humankind itself. So to call it right or wrong, to prove it right or wrong completely depend on us.

We really need to understand the true meaning of religion which is peace and compassion and not blood or hate. Sooner we realise that, better it is for our own existence.

Some people have faith in one supreme being or even see God in each and every element of nature. For them there is hardly any chance of going wrong since they will conserve, protect and respect every element of nature that includes animals and humans as well.


Is Science against faith or religion?

Science always asks for proof. It questions every phenomenon and that is its inherent quality. It has rules, laws , and therefore has it’s limitations.

Faith on the other hand is the imagination of humankind or probably his inner voice and therefore has no limitations. But it has to become liberal to allow science to question. If there is God out there who governs the universe then let science embark on a journey to find him. Maybe He is a force of creation.

The main motive of faith is to make us really humans by teaching us ethics, calming us in bad times and giving us contentment in the end.

Since faith is imagination or belief of man , it creates goals for Science. For example when Edison decided to invent bulb or something that will create light , he must had faith about it. He used faith to set his goals and then used science to accomplish that. His faith made him keep going in spite of many failures. And who benefited in the end, entire humankind !

Similarly, Science or believers of science have faith that there is life out there in space. They have to believe, they need to keep that faith to set their goals.

Therefore, we can say that science is an instrument of faith and both are significant for each other and not against each other.

So if you come across a man of faith or science , give him respect and always show empathy towards the people with whom you don’t agree !
