Life is unpredictable, but a great leveller!!


Waiting for things to fall in place with Time?  Time does not help until you are ready to move ahead!
Life is too precious to burden yourself with people and situations that don’t even deserve to be a problem in your life.

You always have a Choice; and when you begin to think what is missing, it is another attempt to put your life in order. ~Maya

Don’t consider yourself a mistake just because you did some mistakes in your Life. It is fine to make mistakes as Life never came with user handbooks. What is important is you don’t repeat them. The difference between Success and Failure is being able to learn from past mistakes to become more discerning. After all the first step to Success initiates when you rectify the Mistakes.

Circumstances do not decide the quality of your life, your handling them does. Circumstances need you to face them with courage and not by giving up.  ~Maya

We mostly realise that something that doesn’t matter to you causes you to lose something that does. But we can’t even say “Not Again!!” to those circumstances in which the struggle is endless. Honestly, everybody is struggling and so we must not underestimate anybody’s pain. Nevertheless some people are better at masking it than the rest.

There are times when you miss some people, some conversations, some moments. Times Change! And you see it. But that’s not what hurts. What hurts is remembering how it used to be.Typically, the person who gives you the best times and laughter in your life will most likely make you cry in his absence. Hard to forget ‘it’ when ‘it’ gives you many things to remember.

At different whiles, people undergo transition in Life. And at that juncture if you don’t hear from them, you are a part of that transition process. Often the current situations force you to accept that flowing with the natural course and allowing things to happen, is the only way at that moment.Pain, sometimes triggers your going. And it may be a turning point, a new paradigm, a new understanding.

When you choose a path of personal empowerment, an internal struggle rages. One part wants to move and the other wants to pause. The trick is to understand this and focus on the triggers of internal resistance and not on the ones that push you forth.

Every such juncture needs you to do a CTRL+ALT+DEL. Take the CTRL of your life, find ALTernatives to decide and DEL the baggage you hold on to and keep going. After every CTRL+ALT+DEL in life, never regret! This is because that is what you wanted at that point of time.
Times change! So keep going and live your Life.

Life has its own way of making us smile especially at times when you lose hope, but certain surprises come your way just when you thought you would never smile again. ~ Maya

Remember ….Life is like a drama being played on his world’s stage. You just need to understand its plot. You are special, unique and nobody else can play your role better than you. 

Can we inherit Mind & Soul from Parents? Some insights…


As per my limited knowledge of Vedanta, Consciousness is something that cannot be imagined or perceived but without Consciousness you cannot imagine or perceive. God or Supreme power is infinite Consciousness and Universe is disturbed Consciousness. 

You will agree that Consciousness is never plural, just like electricity, which now passes through my laptop to the circuit board and then to the power station. It is still singular. Everything we do is performed in Consciousness.

In the Mortal world, besides the physical body, there exists a metaphysical entity called Soul with its vital attribute called Consciousness. This attribute uses its living body as a system through which the Soul can perceive, act and experience. Although the physical body may die, but this metaphysical entity called Soul is eternal. 

Consciousness may be manifest or may remain dormant. Lets us try to understand this by the phenomenon of Sleep that indicates the existence of Soul. I have experienced dreams in which I have seen faces or people whom I have never seen /met before. But how is that possible? This means there is some other entity other than brain that has a record of these memories.. perhaps from your past birth. So, Consciousness is the entity which can think or dream even without any sensory output. These are impressions captured from the entire journey of  the soul and can be called the Software of the Soul.The Vedas call it 'sanskaras'.

Mind and intellect are not different organs but they are faculties of Soul. Mind is the other name of Consciousness. We must understand that a Brain is the biological computer and not its user , so our thoughts are not product of our Brain. Hence Memory is not a phenomenon of the Brain but function of Consciousness.It is the ability of the SOUL to be cognizant and enable memory retention.Mind is the thinking faculty of Soul, memory is an ability of the Soul and not the Brain.The Brain cant act beyong stimulus. For ex: amoeba.
No doubt that  the Brain seeks images sent through eyes or sounds effects sent through ears, but it can’t interpret or signify these effects & co-relate  them. In simple words, Brain is a control room and the Soul is the controller and Soul does not pass on its power of attorney to the Brain.

Thought is an immaterial energy that knows other forms of energy like Light and Sound.~ Maya

Thought is immeasurable but forms a base for all kinds of measurements. Thoughts originate from Soul which does not have any mass or occupy any space in the Universe like other physical objects.This process of evolution expresses itself in the cyclc repetition of energy in the realms of matter n spirit that manifest at different levels of Consciousness- mind , intellect and sanskaras.

We must not conceal from ourselves that no improvement in the present depressing situation is possible without a severe struggle; for the handful of those who are really determined to do something is minute in comparison with the mass of the lukewarm and the misguided. ~Albert Einstein, 1934

All mortals need to put all the might – material , psychobiological and spiritual into this universal endeavour by undergoing their spiritual evolution. I strongly believe that every soul is powerful enough that their will and intent , if aligned aptly can organize time and space to induce catastrophic changes to bring back the earth to its original state

Where Physics ends, Metaphysics begins..


You will always find an audience hungry to seek the unlocked mysteries in the Universe. And this is my first step towards discovering that tribe which believes that Spirituality is not a religious activity.

Logic begins with a set of assumptions, presumed to be real by common sense, but not necessarily true. For example: “you can’t split a point” or “there’s one line between any two points” .

“When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence:Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... Since the theory of general relativity implies the representation of physical reality by a continuous field, the concept of particles or material points cannot play a fundamental part, and can only appear as a limited region in space where the field strength / energy density are particularly high. ~Albert Einstein, 1950

Einstein had also said: A particle can exist  at two places at the same time.
So, it is like you tickle at this side of the Universe and the other side of the Universe laughs. And this makes me think what is that connects a thing to other things in this Universe?

Nothing in this Universe really disappears, but it goes into a state of potential energy, recycles and then comes back. This is very much akin to the concept of re-incarnation.

A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest.  A kind of optical delusion of Consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty… The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. … We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive. ~Albert Einstein, 1954

The realm of spirits, energy, and transposition of matter are exciting subjects that can only be fathomed if we accept that there is existence beyond what science knows. In other words, where physics ends, metaphysics begins.

Tell me, how much of you is left with you?



A nest of two birds, who wish to love n abide,
If one muddles up, the other to keep the stride.

Its routine now that you escape the moment something I say,
Don’t I know that you wave a Bye to check if I ask you to stay.

You made me Feel and Caution I read and then kept looking for steep curves ahead.
Your happiness is something I've always cared, Can I hold your hand, together as we tread?

You try to fit Love in a relation and that will always make it lethal,
But if it is not the way to esteem then people don’t consider it legal.

You know you won’t get to meet, but you still persist, it is difficult but you know your Heart just can’t resist.
I trust the impossibility of togetherness if you insist, but my love for you this heart will forever consist.

My Mind now wishes for a trip to your memories, that’s something I concern.
Poor thing on the way gets so happy, but then it refuses to return.


Living life with panache by power of Silence



Silence is a true serene refuge and a way of persistently treating oneself and others to the therapeutic qualities of stillness. Such silence results into physical and mental tranquility or serenity.

Just as a still lake becomes a mirror to reflect the beauty of nature, silence reveals the beauty of our original nature. ~Maya

Invariably the basic attributes of every Soul are Love & Peace. Therefore, Silence or Stillness becomes a very naturally stimulating and a refreshing state of high energy & vitality. We must understand that it should not be mistaken with lifelessness or sleep or apathy or passiveness
When we are convoluted we cannot see. So fail to detach and view us as a separate self, and consequently identify body consciousness for what it is. The Mind that constantly babbles with all the turbulence comes to a cease. You will agree that when the intellect sprints, the body follows. Hence, Silence prevents loss of psychosomatic powers through fast activity. And in this "level of renunciation", it becomes clear that body consciousness is something foreign to me.

Watch the creative folks; they are so adept at this! A part within them has found the Silence. Some part of them is calm & quiet, while some part is filled with intense grace & energy.  So when you find them interacting with you, they are actually writing poetry or composing an email, painting or sorting out revenue figures. 
Just watch them in an overloaded office desk, a crowded marketplace or a boiler room, and they will gracefully smile with grace and just go “boom”. That’s because they have found the silence, and can be at ease anywhere. When they want to exit from a locked door they just take plunge and the realm doesn’t exist anymore for them. 
That’s living life with panache! If ever you get there, you join a magical group of exceptional souls. The silence is not just creative. It can attract reputation and luck too. Early enough, if you cherish it correct, it will promote you to great summit. 

Silence is a discipline for the soul that helps you monitor accurately and deal with the impact of each gaze, thought, impulse, word and action. ~Maya



Loving message from an unborn baby


*******************
Message to Daddy
*******************


I feel so close to you for you are the one who gave me a marrow,
And when I come into this world, I want to see you become my hero.
Take your time Daddy for I know things you can do,
Daddy I love you for all that you have been through.



**************
Mum replies
**************


I had some glimpse of you Sweetheart while you were playing inside,
I know you too long for me to hold you and still you try to hide.
You’ve been the twinkle of our eyes, I remember your Dad say,
I keep dreaming of you and love you anyway.
Your Daddy’s not just a father but was also my friend,
Who I knew we could count till the end.
Like me he too wished to cuddle and hold you dear,
Now his Soul longs for and is always resting here.


Mortals, Meaningful trials and on-the-spot Managers



From the learning & know how I have gathered from my own & other interactions, I am attempting to put across a feasible assessment of how does a Mortal evolve in adversity and emerge a good manager of his life.
Habitually mortals outline their reality through unhappiness and hardships. In adverse stages of life, when one has to accomplish conflict resolution, problem fixing, planning, decision making in wavering circumstances, one needs to not only consider analytical and logical aspects but also humane and well-being of a specific person or society. Most situations forces one to think a lot in order to weigh all the pros and cons before concluding to a final point. In due course, one may also feel that the brain is over working than even the most hi-tech machine in the world.

‘Quandaries and Deadlocks when occur, carry an advantage, that is …Force us to think’. ~Maya

Absolutely, we must understand that every mortal in the humankind undergoes several ‘hardships’, ‘sufferings’ or ‘predicaments’ which in some way are necessary for his evolution. In fact when one undergoes pain his way of thinking gradually becomes honest. When the thinking is honest, he becomes cognizant and a new consciousness awakens. Inside them are hidden, the experiences which enables one to develop. Hence, I call them ‘Meaningful trials’.
But somehow, most of us manage our life badly. These trials are not subjective, but its fruits are the impulses which help a Mortal to evolve into ‘the one’ who can challenge his trials and successfully manage his life by virtue of experience. This Mortal is a strong willed Soul who possesses self-control and a higher degree of intuition in his thought content & process. This presumes him to have a watchful, dynamic & visionary mind. He can easily detach from the situation, quickly put him in other’s shoes and can correctly assess the difference. He is simply able to view or review the alternatives without any prejudice and manifests a good blend of flexibility & determination. Hence, I call him ‘on the spot Manager’.
Human mind is very powerful but one needs to have moral orientation through self- introspection. Any change that calls for self-development should come voluntarily and one should just believe that it is for his own good.

 ‘You largely built your despair. It was never offered to you. Hence, you can destroy it’. ~ Maya

So just remember, whenever you are in any kind of adversity, think of the worst that can happen as in the imagined reality, dissect it and you might realize that you have the necessary resources to handle it.
