the seeds of action germinate. How to infer this statement, what exactly are the underlying factors, I have enlisted below. There are 3 factors which has a say in our demeanor they are, 1) Mind 2) Intellect 3) Impressions. Thoughts originate in the mind, and we are unaware of its inception in the first place, then how exactly do we grasp its latent workings. Each thought has a purpose a specific direction ordained by the intellect based on certain moral and ethical preconditions. Thought is energy and those who realize this truth use it with discretion and those who dont entrap themselves in self made traps, a labyrinth from which there is no respite and are cursed with bondage. This bondage constraints their emotional and spiritual freedom. Now the question is how does one liberate the self from this crux, to do this there are various methods but i am enlisting a gist of the same, they are points to ponder check and introspect on. 1) Check whether anyone is disatisfied with you,
this anyone may be related to you in anyway and may come in contact with you under any circumstances, if there is dissatisfaction then be aware there is bondage. The solution is to satisfy one and all to the utmost of your forbearance without compromising on ethical and moral codes. 2) Give no room for complaints. 3) Do not be responsible for evoking intense thoughts about you in others, this is a sure sign of bondage. These are some of the pointers we ought to take note of in a solemn way. I will be continuing some other aspects of the same in my next posting. May you be in union with the eternal god... ARTICLE 2 "THE REVELATION" 'Alienation' seems to be the trend in contemporary times, lost souls are increasing by the day & multitudes of destitutes are migrating to the vast expanse of wilderness of atheism. "God" the mere term has lost its glory in this inferno of illusion. Souls are creating their own personal ornate hell, this hell is so striking that its gloss seems to bring the denizens into the entrapment of delusion.
The feeling of love slowly fades away into dissatisfaction and then faith is sold for mere emotions. The solution to this crux is latent in each mortal but has to be unlocked at our own peril. The peril of rejection and branding and a tendency of not conforming to the norms set by this so called civilized society. To break free all we need is courage and utmost faith in god. God is the only one who offers unconditional love and expects nothing in return and understands each and every one of us like a father understands his child, so with faith we can break these chains of gold which we willingly adorn and accept as fate. To understand god is the "true Revelation" which we all must undertake with an open mind a spirit of enquiry and as a divine endeavor. ARTICLE 3 “SPIRITUAL WAR” The spiritual war has long begun, this war is in progress day and night and every mortal remnant is engaged in it, though this statement may strike to one as odd it has deep roots somewhere in the human psyche. This war has continued to grow into a poison tree for some unfortunate and bedazzled souls lost in the myriad of delusions forcing them to taste the forbidden apple. The roots run very deep and are nurtured by nescient experiences. The spiritual war is the internal war here, every sentient being has felt this strife deep within oneself. Now the question arises what is this war for and why fight.
The answer is quite simply in the word "realization”, but again realization of what. This question has to be answered by each mortal because it is latent and dormant in all. The war here is the war with the vices (maya) and only those who realize their eternal presence are freed from it. We are all not just physical bodies but sublime consciousness in expression this truth has to be realized and only then do we succeed. ARTICLE 4 “THEOLOGY” From ancient times lot of deliberations has been made on the nature and the exact essence of god. Who is god or what is god remains an enigma to this day, though lot of dogmatic sectarians may claim otherwise and argue that the god they believe in is the true god, but that itself is not a concrete basis from which god can be derived. God the word conjures up images of a peaceful radiating protecting father with benign qualities to many, but to really unravel the mystery of the nature of god all we need to do is sit in silence and introspect on god, we find that the more we ponder on god the more we get closer to ourselves, what does this mean, this means that the qualities of god we seek is embodied in our own creation, in a sense we are the children of god. The "we" here does not mean the physical self, but infact means a radiating higher self which lies dormant in all
Mortals, this "we" has to be unveiled to reveal the qualities of god, the god we seek. ARTICLE 5 “KURUKSHETRA” The time is dawning where history takes its last laps and comes full circle, we are standing in the middle of kurukshetra, and the enemy is invisible and strives to delude us. This is an internal conflict taking place in realized minds. As sankalpa is the seed this potent adversary targets its very framework. The fundamental laws of right and wrong are questioned and the shadow is cast on the intellect of the aspirant, we have to search for the sun our dearest father as without his guidance the war cannot be won. But we have to remember one thing though that he shows us the path but it is we who have to walk on it and persistence is the key for such sustained efforts. The enemy is mighty but we have to make our will stronger, the spiritual fire can be put in trouble by unseen winds and torrential rains, but we have to resolve to keep it alight and cross this graveyard of the kurukshetra. We have to seek a connection with god at every instant and be alert to hidden dangers. This hell fire of maya has been deluding us from many births. Now is the time to arise, realize and persist in our steadfast efforts to finish this maya fire with the fire of Rajyoga and the soothing water of the divine knowledge
given to us by baba, then only we can put an end to this kurukshetra war both internal and external. OM SHANTI. ARTICLE 6 “PERFECTION” Divine perfection is the pinnacle of persistent efforts and steadfast travel in the Sahaj marg of Raj Yoga, the idea is not to fight with maya but remain in agyat vas and adopt the method of maya ki avidya, this is possible if the flood gates of maya are locked using the double lock of yaad and seva but there is a loop hole without which we are bound to stay astray. It is the pratagya we have taken the vrat we cannot break and the blessing given to us by baba "Pavitra Bhav and Yogi Bhav". As the cycle of time moves forward with giant leaps we have to prepare our selves for this journey as soon as possible and attain the divine perfection, remember the easy mantra OM SHANTI. ARTICLE 7 “SPIRITUAL DIMENSIONS” Dimensions come into the picture of cognition, The 3 dimensions which surrounds this gross body is a constraint limited in space and time. The soul or the spirit is not limited in its original form of existence .It is free from
the physical sense organs and the dead limbs of this lifeless body. Its speed is the speed of thought and manifests matter through thought energy. This happens beyond the physical realm in the subtle world. As Einstein proved from the equation E = mc*2, energy and matter are interchangeable. The soul is weighed down due to a powerful constraining factor "Karma" ,this is scientifically validated from Newton’s 3rd law which states " Every action has an equal and opposite reaction " So the point here is to understand what is Right action and do the same this is possible only when there is clarity of the intellect which comes from realization of the all important question " Who am I " so endeavor to do so with a mind free from bias and prejudice and enlighten yourself ,only then will you be able to transcend the physical dimension and enter spiritual dimensions. May you be in union with the eternal god . OM SHANTHI . ARTICLE 8 "DEATH" Death the mere reference evokes in us certain emotions, each individual has an outlook to this enigma, but to really understand death we need not look far and deep but just observe. The question arises what do we observe-the answer is "Nature (or prakriti)", its expression and
manifestations. We find that everything is cyclic in the cosmos. It is a realm of opposites, creation and destruction of all phenomena observe this 'cyclic law'. Death is defined as cessation of life, but what exactly ceases we fail to fathom. Death can be defined in different ways, but what exactly is it, this understanding comes from first setting up a reference point. Let’s endeavor to unlock this code. Consider a dead body, as it is lifeless there is no reference point to life, now take the case of a living person, there is life so there is a reference, the reference point is not one but 2 and they are "Space and time". When life ceases this reference ceases but the energy embodied is not destroyed, this is subtle understanding. Though there is change with respect to the reference the original life energy does not change nor is destroyed. The only change occurs with respect to the expression within the reference points. Thus life energy or the soul (atman) renews itself and is reembodied with respect to another field of reference where it expresses itself. So to conclude it can be said that "Death is not the end nor is Birth the beginning". ARTICLE 9 “Cycle of Time” The scene unfolds exactly the same way it has done before. The eternal cycle has wheels set in motion and
continues to roll on. The new age or the great upheaval talked about by all prophets is just a stone throw away. The turning of the tables is imperative and about to come to pass. The human race lies in deep slumber deluded by maya and is unable to come to terms with this. The spiritual soldiers alight and enforce submission of the illusion which has blindfolded the potent. Time and space and its whole understanding is about to change. So let us all awake and realize this eternal truth that "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience but we are spiritual beings having a human experience". Let us all strive to learn the art of detachment in these worldly and mundane attachments and ascend to paradise, which is going to befall mankind. Welcome to the new world. Om Shanti. ARTICLE 10 “Cycle of Time” (Deeper concepts) We all know the famous quote “history repeats itself”, but what exactly is it trying to convey we fail to fathom. When we take a look at human history itself we find that recorded history dates back to around 500 B.C. i.e. to around 2500 years before now. Before that the civilizations which flourished have no concrete documentation and are derived in an abstract way. So here we try to establish the missing links, when we start traveling through the time portal we begin to enter a
sphere of arcane realities which somewhere lies latent in each one of us. The only thing needed by us is to unlock this higher reality; for this we need to travel beyond space and time to the core of our being and endeavor to understand timelessness. This concept is quite intriguing for one who delves deep to understand the subtle realities of day to day life and the complex workings of situations which life throws at us. When we look at the world today we find lot of ancient wonders around which on rational thinking even contemporary technology finds as an impossible feat and marvels at their brilliance. So here the question arises as to how those civilizations achieved feats which even today’s technology fails to accomplish. When we look at the history books we find that the ancient man was very primal and ordained to life lacking in any form of intelligence or for that matter civil behavior, so therein lies the riddle which we must unlock. When we look at nature we find it is cyclic day-night-day, springsummer-autumn-winter. Everything we observe tends to follow a cyclic pattern. Take for example a tree - It springs from the seed and wilts away and later the seed from the same tree springs a new tree. When we travel to the future we get a sense that science is refining and new technologies are unearthed in this process i.e. scientific progress is yielding far greater powers in human hands and enabling one to achieve feats which are impossible as of today. So when we look at the
situation and ponder, we find the missing link and realize that the past becomes the future. There seems to be a hidden connection and the past and the future join at a point in human history. This seems to be an odd concept but on introspection we indeed arrive at this. So here when we look at the broader picture we find things are actually in motion and a lot of energy transfer is taking place and the most important thing is it is cyclic. So let us look at the hidden picture for ourselves and introspect; then we tend to validate that the same set of events are taking place in a cyclic fashion throughout history and indeed history repeats itself. So there you go déjà vu. ARTICLE 11 “IN TRANSIT” The journey is undertaken with resolve. The aspirant who strives encounters various patterns of energy flows within oneself. This may comprise of thought patterns which seem hard to comprehend. It seems that more one advances on this spiritual journey towards perfection one comes across expressions coming from within which are very profound. In a sense that it seems to compel one in different directions. Here the aspirant has to tread with utmost caution and observe steadfast resolve in overcoming this latent storm of thoughts and feelings. These could be attributed to the past, the past in the
sense beyond this birth. As the soul the owner of the body plays varied roles along this journey around the world cycle it stores certain traits and patterns in the unconscious which begin to express itself when one starts to travel inward through meditation. Here God consciousness plays a key role in recharging oneself with the divine light and might, giving one strength to stand steady in these currents of settlements. We have to understand that these patterns are dying out so they tend to pull with maximum force while doing so. This shows that the aspirant is progressing and indicates cleaning of the soul. So let us keep the company of god always and make quick strides towards the ideal. Om Shanti. ARTICLE 12 “Metaphysical Realities Brought to Light” Dimensions are an illusion which blind cognition. Metaphysical truths are toying with reality in absurd ways which seem hard to comprehend. Here the line of focus of common individuals engaged in routine work is blinded. This perception is intuitive and comes under the realm of occult studies, but the point is that they are branded. As the famous quote goes “The supernatural is only the natural not yet understood”, but because of lack of awareness we entrap ourselves in these fatal belief systems which feel comforting but lack wisdom and foresight. The reality is that it is quite obvious for each one
of us to experience and also express the supernatural which is but natural. But the only criterion is awareness. Here the question arises, awareness of what and the answer is the self. No wonder the most asked question by philosophers around the world throughout history is “who am I”, so here we come to understand that this is the distinguishing factor between ordinary living and extraordinary living. Great seers and wise men of yore are not any weird beings but their success can be attributed to this simple logic. If we all endeavor to rise above the mundane and seek higher levels of perception it would only require the right knowledge coupled with awareness, and this would mean increased productivity on all levels of life which can be seen in the attitude and outlook towards life a person has. ARTICLE 13 “Empires Are First Built in the Mind” Before any empire can be built the seed has to be sown in the mind and this seed is nothing but the thoughts we create. Any successful venture, be it a company or an enterprise works on certain fundamental laws which govern the internal machinery.
The pivotal factor in determining success in any team or group is essentially human interaction and at the base of this is human communication. How we fellow denizens come into play amongst each other. This may be based on a number of factors based on the framework of the psyche of each other. But ultimately it comes to morality, as perspectives differ there may be violations or breach of trust but the ultimate aim would be to create group synergy. This paradigm would call for another approach which is not so commonly seen. It is the spiritual angle, as in a work place we tend to identify with various parameters which we ourselves set. We need to look beyond these artificial veils of bias which are very subtle and ingrained deeply. The truth is all of us are intrinsically good but because of certain predispositions tend to alienate ourselves from the crux of human exchanges. Any exchange or a relationship can be pleasant and this would give synergy and contribute to growth and eventually end up in successful empires. But for this we have to understand how this subtle machinery of human interaction works. We find that people working together may be from different backgrounds or in fact have different belief systems which they adhere to. So here we need to exercise utmost caution and constantly be aware of our exchanges with one other as the other person may infer a common sign as a sign of dissent based on perception.
So we have to trace the origin of interaction which is as follows: starting with the thoughts it tends to manifest as feelings which are conveyed through signs and eventually through the vocal means. It comes forth in action and behavior which is observed. So here if we realize a subtle truth, our entire approach changes and distances melt improving the foundation of human interaction which is communication. As the famous quote goes, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience but we are spiritual beings having a human experience”. So in view of this when we realize we all are essentially spiritual beings coming into interaction in this field of play, here specifically the work place then the feeling of universal brotherhood dawns and our exchanges become so smooth and loving that the relationship is nurtured and the work culture is empowered and success is just a byproduct of this which can be cherished. ARTICLE 14 “Garden Of Eden” The concept of “Garden of Eden” is quite an intriguing one. When we sit down to comprehend this mystery, we naturally embark on a journey into the past or, as some would say, into another dimension. This idea has captured the universal imagination and is synonymous with our craving for the ideal.
The term “Garden of Eden” might be derived from Christian literature, but in fact it is referred to by different names in other religions. For ex: In Hindu religion it is termed as “Swarga”, in the religion of Islam it is termed as “Jannat.” Similarly, it is called as Shangrila, Shambala, Utopia, Paradise, etc. and the list goes on. The point here is to understand what it exactly means and why there is a certain sanctity associated with it. According to biblical references “God created man in his own image” and granted him an ideal home to live. This home is termed as the Garden of Eden, now the fact that paradise was lost by falling from grace on account of a sin is known to us. But what was that paradise like? And where did it exist? Are some of the questions which we will try to answer. Also we can recall that Christ kept referring to the lost paradise in his teachings and also told us that the lost paradise would come back again. Here the question of the place is - Where does this paradise exist? Does it exist in any other dimension or in an alternate parallel world or did it exist here on this earth. The answer we arrive upon contemplation is that the paradise exists here itself. This is understood when we go back in time, we find that the population decreases proportionally, this would again challenge the theory of evolution, but that is another topic altogether. So here when we look at the world history we find that the recorded history dates to around 500 BC and
before that the description of the time was based on assumptions which are not validated in a concrete fashion. So we can infer that paradise existed on this earth before recorded history. When we take a look at the ancient wonders and structures of magnificence around us, we note that they are not mere findings, but they have more to them than what is perceived about them. The technology used for their construction is far more superior to the technology existing now, so here we understand that they were constructed during the time when paradise existed. Now the question arises - Who were the people who inhabited the paradise? Were they any advanced beings? or Were they just like us? The truth is that people living in paradise must have also been special. So here upon pondering we understand that they had higher morality and discipline of life, as compared to us, i.e. they were evolved beings in terms of actions and reactions observed in human behavior paradigms. Now from our understanding of the cyclic nature of time, we can conclude that the lost paradise is going to be restored at some point in human history, but to account for this, we as individual entities can contribute by marching towards the ideal, by changing our false belief systems and adopting a higher order of morality. We also should understand that we lost this paradise due to our deviation
from the norm of morality and values during the course of the world history. When we ponder on all these concepts, we understand that the predictions of doom and dooms day are not exactly talking about destruction and catastrophes but in fact they are signaling towards a coming time when everything is going to be perfect again and the lost paradise is going to be restored on this earth. So let us all endeavor to awaken to a higher and evolved lifestyle based on morality and wisdom, this way we would also be contributing to the global cause of peace and harmony amongst all, and eventually we can usher in a new age by restoring the “Garden of Eden” to its lost grandeur and magnificence. ARTICLE 15 “E = M C ^ 2” This equation attributed to Albert Einstein has caught the attention of scientists as well as philosophers alike. The common perception is that Einstein was an alternate thinker in a generation filled with reformers, but Einstein had more to him than is commonly understood. The exact essence of this famous equation and particularly its spiritual significance is of interest. Let us first try to decode in a general way before moving on to a profound analysis of the same.
When we take the individual terms we note ‘E’ stands for energy, ‘M’ stands for mass and ‘C’ stands for velocity and in this context specifically the velocity of light which is calculated to be in the order of 3 × 10 ^ 8 m/s. The basic understanding which Einstein advocated using this equation is that energy and matter are interconvertible when either of the two approach the speed of light. Here the space–time paradigm also comes into the picture, which we refer to as dimension. Another interesting conclusion from this equation is that time is an illusion. This concept is highlighted by philosophers who claim that as any object or matter approaches the speed of light it experiences something called timelessness, and time is just a change in reference. All these ideologies are better understood when we look at the spiritual aspect of this intriguing equation. Here we look at something which each and every one of us continues to do day in and day out, but with or without awareness. This is thought creation, we think, don’t we? Now how this fits in seems to be an obvious question. Here we need to look at the speed of thought. The speed of thought varies depending on various parameters like the nature of the thought, the desire behind the thought etc. Now, to get an idea of the speed of the thought, we observe that we can travel beyond space and time using the same. One could think of contrasting things like the sun and an ice cream. Now here we
observe that there are no limitations or constraints to our thoughts. So when we compare speed of thought vs. the speed of light, what we find and infer is interesting. The inference is thoughts can travel faster than light. So what this means in a scientific language comes into the picture now. Thoughts are energy forms and once the speed of the thought becomes equal to the speed of light, time is nullified and once the speed exceeds the speed of light we start traveling backwards in time. Now applying the equation E=MC^2, we note that thought energy is interconverted to matter at the speed of light and this matter which is nothing but an energy form materializes into reality. Thus thoughts are not just stray forms without significance; they have a deep significance in each one of our lives. We have just pictured how it materializes into reality in more ways than one. So the idea is to think differently to materialize success in any endeavor. This is also the secret behind yogis dwelling in solitude who materialize things out of nothing. So here we conclude that supernatural is only the natural not yet understood and now we understand the power latent in each one of us to unlock a beautiful destiny of choice through pure thinking. ARTICLE 16 “A Human Being Is a Microcosm”
When we look at the universe, it is a vast expanse of different forms of energy interoperating in a pattern of sorts. When the theory of Doppler Effect which is based on sound is applied to light a common hypothesis arrived at is that the universe is expanding. This is observed by the scientific study of frequency of light waves reaching the earth from the vast expanse. It is found that the frequency is reducing. This gives an inference to scientists and philosophers alike observing cosmic phenomena that the universe is expanding and this theory has held ground among scientists for a long time now. This can be understood based on science as moving from equilibrium to disorder. A new theory “Reverse quantum cosmology” challenges this theory and comes up with another radically different theory which states that the universe expands and contracts periodically; the value of this theory remains to be seen. The second law of thermodynamics states that any system moves from an ordered state i.e. a state of equilibrium to a disordered state and that this cannot be reversed unless acted upon by an external agency which tends to bring the system back to equilibrium; on applying this law to the cosmos we may infer that the universe is in flux and moving towards a disordered or chaotic state now and unless an external agency acts on it the universe cannot regain equilibrium or come back to an ordered state. Who or what acts as the external agency in this context remains to be understood.
Now let us look at the spiritual angle which springs forth interesting conclusions. These can be validated by deep contemplation. It may be an odd analogy but it is true that there are parallels which are subtle and can be observed if pondered upon. The philosophers’ and spiritualists’ famous quote “Man is a microcosm” has to be understood in clarity because there are various doctrines advocating different schools of thought on the same. Let us first start with an assumption that the human being is a microcosm. This would imply that the entire universe is a macro view of the human body. The entire internal machinery within the human body is similar to the entire external machinery operating in the cosmos. As science validates the randomness of the cosmos, this on application to the human body reveals disorder within the human body. Now here the concept of the spirit comes forth and the innate difference between the human body and the spirit operating it is pictured. We draw conclusions that the human body is in disorder because the spirit and the spiritual energy manifested by the spirit is in disorder and this can be seen by apparent violation of morality and ethics by majority of the human race today. Now the concept of the external agency has to be understood. Here the external agency is none other than god who is our own spiritual godfather, though views on this may vary based on the background of the individual; it is universally accepted that there is a higher power that we
all refer to as god. Now when we look at the abstract picture there is clarity; we realize on introspection that the order of the cosmos is going to be reestablished by the external agency, god and this is accomplished by restoring the order of the spirit that clothes the human body which can be seen in analogy with the cosmos. So this restoration of the order of the cosmos has to be done by the external agency and no human being within this closed system is capable of restoring this order. Now when we look at it we also realize that no system tends to be in equilibrium at all times and that the degree of randomness increases over time resulting in disorder. This ideology would also validate the cycle of time and role of god in this closed system of the cosmos which operates in a cyclic fashion moving from order to disorder and then back to order again with the help of the external agency god.
