Does life have a purpose ?

We are on the brink of a spiritual transition. This switch is bound to happen, as the world grapples with uncertainty brought forth by factors like increasing medical problems, new information patterns and globalization.

The Mayan Calendar comes to an end on December 23, 2012. They have predicted great climatic changes due to reversal of the earth’s magnetic field and a high degree of sunspot occurrences which in turn will disrupt life. Think of all those warnings that we are getting nowadays about global warming. As a report details out that by 2050, the result of the same can increase the sea water levels by as high as 7 to10 meters. Islands and other locations close to the sea , beware !!!

Despite the dangers, we march on. At times thoughtfully, but many a times recklessly. Many of those prophecies of the seer minds or tribes or sects are coming true.

For e.g: The Hopi Indians have predicted

“Before the great Purification, they will make metal roads for iron horses [trains and train tracks] and hang metal ropes [power lines] in the air." The last danger sign is that "first they will bring back pieces of the Moon. Purification will begin shortly after humans build a great house in the sky" [space station?]

Jules Verne in his classic book ‘A trip to the moon’ wrote about a vehicle like a tram that would be launched to set foot on moon. A century later, the forecast came true.

These are trying times. Progress is always welcome. But what is really progress?

Sometimes progress is not visible. Here’s an excerpt from the Tao te Ching

  • We put thirty spokes together and call it a wheel;
  • But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the wheel depends.
  • We turn clay to make a vessel;
  • But it is on the space where there is nothing that the usefulness of the vessel depends.
  • We pierce doors and windows to make a house;
  • And it is on these spaces where there is nothing that the usefulness of the house depends.
  • Therefore just as we take advantage of what is, we should recognize the usefulness of what is not

Because the invisible is intricately connected with what can be felt with our senses. And it’s in the hustle-bustle of daily events that we forget to read between the lines.

Everyone of us is receiving messages from providence every second. But we tune ourselves to a different frequency. Why? Cause we are not in control of our thoughts. Hopping between different wavelengths, and marauding through the stack of the deeds of the day, we have become robots. Maybe better or maybe worse.

The only solution is to get back in touch with the inner ‘us’ and that can only happen with an intense desire to achieve this goal.

And trust me, the only reason we are here is to achieve God-Realization.

Bless …
