Those who live by the sword, die by the sword

There are so many lessons we can learn from nature. Everything seems to be cyclical or repetitive. Seasons come and go. Same with happiness and despondency. The more we are attached to it, the more the elation or dejection. Some people get over it, others don’t. We should always take happenings in the right spirit. But before we do, we should understand nature.

We have to move in the way of the Tao. Because if we don’t we may be overcome with distraught. A ball which falls down comes back up again, then again to fall. The reward is not in predicting rain, but building an umbrella to circumvent it. We may try our utmost to go against the tide, but we simply can’t. Life goes on - In its own rhythm.

We are not in a school, if you see life as such. We are here to regain our glory - To remember and to reenact the fact that we are a spiritual soul without a beginning or end. Everything that happens does so, for the best. There are hidden messages which we realize one time or the other. We have to be observers of this great phenomenon called life. And that’s the only way.

I’m not recommending a passive way. For observation also we have to be alert and flow with the tune. Choose to live a life of creativity, because at the core we are all creators. The mind has to be made still and directed towards innovation. Brevity is good at times, but sometimes we have to take the long road. Choose the way of life you want to lead. But if it’s pungent then remember that they who live by the sword, die by the sword. Choose ahimsa over war, except when it’s not for righteousness or self -defense. Listen to your inner voice. It will guide you.

Always ...

And one day the eyes of your spirit shall open, and you shall know all things

We are all living in a dream. I’m not talking of dreams that we see when we go to sleep. This life itself is a dream. We feel that things are happening and are under our control. This is but an illusion. Where were we before being born or where will we be after death? We came from nothing and go back to nothing. How can there be something in between two nothings?

In short the nothing or the universal mind is dreaming that we are alive. From naught we came and to naught we go back. And in between whatever happens is a dream. In the Hindu texts it’s called Maya, or simply illusion of life. We are all witnesses and nothing more. When we see a beautiful flower, God is appreciating his own creation.

More apt, would be experiencing. The highest experience is orgasmic in nature. And we are all awaiting that, in order for the God within us to experience it. The feeling of love or heart is uppermost when the ego is not interfering. God knocks at our door many million times, but we either ignore it or draw ourselves back into our ego shells.

Let yourself go free. No inhibitions and no wise words from some texts or what you would have learned from the compulsive voices. Imagine for a moment that you are like an eagle soaring at 5000 feet above ground level. You just enjoy the feeling, no worldly tensions. I understand that we cannot always be in such a state forever. The more we meditate, the more we come closer to such a state of mind. Give it a shot. Your life will be much simpler.

I quote from the Essene Gospel of Peace “And one day the eyes of your spirit shall open, and you shall know all things”

God Bless,

Two steps behind

Don’t keep a grudge against anyone, however bad the experience was. You are simply creating negative energy around you, without solving the problem. Don’t get carried away by people who say that you have to get even. Instead, change a needy person’s life. You would’ve got even by doing this charitable act. Enhance positive vibrations around yourself.

Think straight. To deal with most of the situations in life, God has given us common sense. We should be using that more; than nursing worrying thoughts, which anyway does not get us anywhere. In computers there is a term called GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out). Our mind also works in the same way. You feed it useless thoughts and the result would be useless actions.

You need not fear anything – not even death. In fact, death is liberation from this continuous cycle of thoughts, aching body and errands that you have to take care of. Death is the great equalizer or the ultimate mystery. The greatest poetry on earth is upon this phenomenon. Have you heard of Nachiketa sacrifice. He was the person who asked death to reveal itself and he came to the realization about it.

Anyway let me take you way from somber discussions to something more pleasant. Let’s talk about love. ‘Cause that is all there is to life, rest is noise. Love in all it’s forms and semantics. Read about it, experience it and live it. Remember if you are not feeling love today, you are missing something. It does not have to be accidental always. Try 2 steps from your side, and you will realize that God is just 2 steps behind.

With lots of love,
