I’ve always enjoyed reading this. This is a great explanation for how our mind works. There is always that inevitable intention to make sense out of everything we see. This tendency to make sense is not just for language, but for our world, our surroundings, our existence, our daily life, our relationships, family values, virtues, beliefs, even life on the whole. After all, we spend our entire life trying to make sense out of it.

“Making Sense” is unique to every individual. Individuality arises because we are limited to our senses and controlled by the mind. Identity is man’s idea to keep our individuality intact. Apart from the fact that we have different names and that we are different in color, we are all the same beings. We are thinking beings and the significance of perception is the same to all of us.

Perception is the process of attaining awareness or understanding of the environment, by organizing and interpreting sensory information. Our sense organs collects information from outside, and our mind interprets it within. We live inside our body, understand and survive through change, we learn everything we need to learn about what is outside of us. There is a wonderful world outside, as well as within.

Outside, its an appearance world. All that we see outside our self is light. Our main source of light is the sun. Light alone exists, and the colour that we see in the surrounding is generated in the mind. Where there is no light, there is no colour. Colour changes with light. Visible light is a small part of the complete electromagnetic spectrum.

Complete spectrum of electromagnetic radiation...

Out of the radiation spectrum, visible light is the only wave particle we can see with our human eyes. Light falls on every object, and for us to be able to see the colour of the object, a whole lot of mechanism takes place. The object absorbs the light wave which corresponds to its pigment and reflects the rest of the light wave. The reflected light ray hits our eye and depending upon its wavelength, colour is generated in the mind. Colour is not real, its perceptive.

This is why colour blind people cannot see some colours, and blind people cannot see at all. Colour is different in all our eyes, it depends on the amount of cells we have in each eye. All that we see, as the world outside, are collaborated images from both our eyes. It gives us depth perception. Our eyes create a 3 dimensional view of the world to distinguish light and shadow, to understand how nearer or farther any object is. Our eyes help us see, and we only see what we want to see.

Beauty is as we believe. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. If we see something with love, it automatically becomes beautiful. This is a strange phenomenon in our magical world. Science can explain this even better, but, unfortunately, the language of science is very old. In this era of change, it would be greatness for our human race to discover our true potential, our divine nature, so we can live with the joy of salvation blessed in universal harmony.

God‘s light exists within our hearts. It has a powerful shine, and when it shines we glow from within. This is not an ordinary world. We are not ordinary people surviving a government. This is a supernatural world, we are divine creatures capable of change. All that we need to do is surrender to being. We need to trust in the higher power and free fall. Our life is the best journey we have ever taken or ever can.

We have to lose the false sense of self which is created by identity. We need to awaken to a higher consciousness and sing praises of our creator within. Where there is no more attachment to the self and to the material world, we are free to claim back our relationship with the supreme power and remain in bliss, we can attain nirvana.

Man’s restlessness can come to an end if he seeks the powers within. The purpose of life is to attain universal harmony. There is a verse from Natya Shastra called Abhinaya Dharpanam (Stage Craft). It teaches the way to create Rasa(Emotion). As humans our divine purpose is to create the appropriate emotion at the appropriate moment to experience divine bliss. The verse says…

“Yatohasto Tatodhristi, Yatodhristi Tatomanas, Yatomanas Tatobhaava, Yatobhaava Tatorasa.”

It means,

“where the hands go, goes the eyes, where the eyes go, goes the mind, where the mind goes, that is expressed, where there is expression, emotion is evoked”

This is the pathway to universal harmony in dance and divine love. The universe is within us. The precious light of god lives within our body and contains our soul. The soul never dies, it never gets old or affected. It is an energy that can neither be created nor be destroyed. It can only be transformed from one body to another. It is that which we can never see but feel.

Even though we are born as individuals in this world our purpose is to become one with all. This beautiful world can only be seen through the gift of eyes, which are windows for the soul.

Changing Realities

Reality changes, as you believe.

There is always one reality. What is present and what is right now. This reality, constantly changes and it changes with time. We have previously learnt that time is the unsolvable mystery of life. The factor being it cannot be seen or felt and it keeps moving forward. We can never go back in time and no one can tamper it. This is our blind faith in the mystery of time, and it is due to this blind faith we fail to recognize a wonderful changing reality, that is changing constantly.

We live in submission to our own belief and remain limited by it. Our belief in time is so unshakable that it is impossible for us to stop and think for one moment, that time might not exist. After all, we work on time, we wake up on time, we sleep on time, we eat on time, we live for the time-being, then how could we begin to believe that time is not real? But the truth my friend, is that, it isn’t.

Time is a dimension, a perception, a concept. A concept created by mankind. Time is imaginary. The reason for its creation, is to measure the rate of change. This world is constantly changing and without time, we will never be able to follow history. Our life would be meaningless without time. It would be as though, everything happened at once. We might die with the sensation of never having lived at all. To make our human life comprehensible to our own selves, great minds of the past, invented time. It is not part of our nature, it is part of our minds.

Reality is unique to everyone of us. Each of us have a unique story running on our minds about ourselves. We are the creators of our lives. What we believe is our reality. Our future is as we see. Our mind is a fabulous agent that helps us move forward and at the same time keeps us contained within our insecurities. We are the strongest and only if we want to be.

We are a reasoning device. All we need is one reason to make us believe what we want to believe. We are free beings who can do anything we want. We live in a society, it contains many of us. It is we who compromise and blame others for our failures. It is a reason we find to not move forward, to not take control and remain stuck in a place, where we don’t want to be. We fear future. We fear what we can’t see and dont know. We fear life.

Reality is a wonderful journey through change. It takes courage to move forward in time. It is stupid to wait for opportunities. The fearless, follows his dream. Each one of us have amazing dreams, and would do anything to make it true. Would it not be great if someone had told us how to make our dreams come true? A strange part of life is that, sometimes all that we need to do, is take the first step, and everything else will fall in place.

This universe loves us. This universe would do anything to make our dream come true. All that we need to do is believe in it. Believe that if we are on the right pathway, the right will happen. If something is going wrong it is only because we are not right. Spiritual learning never seizes. It is an ongoing process from birth to death. God‘s guiding light stays with us forever. We have to open our eyes to see it.

Our job in darkness, is to take decisions. Our mind involves us in the decision making process all the time. There are no wrong decisions, only doubts that lurk beneath the surface. It takes confidence to stick to our decisions. When we stick to our decisions, reality changes. Life is like an escalator, all you need to do is take the first step, and we will be dropped off where we need to be. It helps if we are aware of where we stand. It makes it easy to get off, after all, you never know how many more escalators you need to take. You never know how far you need to go.

The Human Condition

Righteousness, as Krishna teaches Arjuna

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.” Ezekiel 25:17,

Just like in “Pulp Fiction“, the verse before the angry man fires many rounds of bullets onto another human being, with no fear or love, as his master’s slave. His own act of Righteousness! A beautiful movie, indeed. However, my friend, life is not just a movie and most times, it is not just Beautiful. When you shoot someone in reality, they die. And, if you killed someone, you are bound to feel bad. That, is the Human condition, that is how we exist. We are made to emote, to each other and to ourselves. But chances are, if you are a mean person, you most probably wont.

There is a valley of darkness for each one of us, and while we are at it, there are people around us, watching, if not for anything, just to laugh. They have filled their heart with hatred, and emptied themselves into a box. They Live in a void, and love it. Someday, they would realize, they live only in their head!

There is an angry Jules in all of us, an angry dark person, who does not understand the true nature of a so called, Civilization. Who does not understand, why we do what we do, every single day.

Why we wake up from sleep and find a new day. Why we look for a pathway? Why are we hoping to be led somewhere? Why do we trust people? We respect people, we love people, we live by our word. We hope and pray, each day, that today would be better day. That today, will change our life. Someone, somewhere, somehow, will change our life. But the truth is, it will not. We live in a state of yesterday forever. It is not a very good state.

Building stories in our head, calling if Life. What we experience in our day-to-day scenarios is a harsh truth, we feel it and remain contained within our feelings. We express ourselves to each other. We call ourselves, people. We change our faces, we laugh, we cry. We act what we feel, and we react, to what we feel.

We are slaves to our own minds. The place where everything ends and begins. A chaotic hyper galaxy. Always active, and functional. Leading us forward in time. Most times, we have no idea why we did what we did. Only later, we sit and ponder, recollect scenes and shots of yesterday and the day before and go back to childhood. While at the state of ponder, it is pretty much possible to go back to childhood. Its pretty much possible to never return.

With Memories fresh in the mind, with places never forgotten. With a sensation of having lived, we contain back in the box and go back to sleep. Like nothing ever happened. Like you never had a problem. Cheated by our own nature and living with a higher one. Our ever existing nature to forget, and the higher nature to remember. We call it just memories and go back to sleep.

Only our memory is based on how people made us feel, which in turn, is our own personal story. Without it, we are just mad people. Changing our faces, smiling, laughing, angry, sad, lifeless, regardless, and very very worried about something we never understand.

We are humans. We live in a condition. Its called Madness. To make things look cool, we call it a civilization. We are the righteous, living in an era of an Awakening. We are being deceived by pretentious people, who need our trust and respect.

We respect people only because we love them. But in the end, they will shoot us in our head, and will not be bothered about having done it, because, they just don’t care.

These people exist all around us. They have returned to their animal nature and use language as a tool to lie. They pretend to be nice, only to attack when you are not watching. Like Hyenas. They call themselves the Governments, the leaders, the bosses, The important and all. They are Pretentious. They exist in our society, and we, the crazy civilians, spend our entire life, trying to understand them.

We are fools of love. Cheated and spat on. Nobody cares about our existence, they only make it seem, like it does.
