You are a gifted being

Is there such a thing as a moral code of conduct? I’m afraid not. It varies from one geography to another. It varies from one sect to another. But if you study religions, one thing that all of them seem to have in common is the path of goodness. Positive v/s Negative. Although the duality is apparent, one thing that comes through clear is the way to reach God. Positive seems to be near.

It’s true if you see it in the electromagnetic context. Atoms are made up of a nucleus which holds the neutron and the positively charged protons and the negatively charged electrons go around the nucleus. Neutron which does not have a charge is akin to God. Positively charged protons are like good qualities. They are placed near God. And electrons the negative qualities keep revolving without rest.

Inside each of us is, all these particles. Goodness will definitely take us further down the path of liberation, but it won’t be nirvana. To achieve that, we have to transcend goodness. In the hindu texts it’s called Sattva. Sattvic people are very pleasant and accommodating. They think good for themselves and others. Good begets good.

But there is a whole world beyond good and bad. In God’s world, there is no good or bad. He is equal to all. Like the sunlight that does not discriminate between the rich and the poor. An animal like a dog can never achieve that ultimate. Only human beings can. Hence celebrate this birth. Even mortals in heaven desire to take human birth. We are all special as we have the power to reach God with practiced effort. Hence embrace all moments with arms wide open. You are not a blip on the radar. You are the radar.

My salute to the neutron inside each of you …
