In today’s world, human life is slowly getting monotonous and redundant. At a single glance at humanity, we feel that the individual is moving away from his roots, from his existence and from the truth that binds his very body together. In his haste to endlessly achieve materialistically, the individual is somewhat forgetting his loftier purpose of communion with God. This undertaking is a humble yet cautioning reminder to the individual to go seek out the real and everlasting treasure, the procuring of which, shall yield him immeasurable bliss and infinite peace. Only through relentless and continuous self-interrogation and devotion to the One, can anybody achieve this. Therefore today embark on a journey to rediscover yourself, to know yourself and to live in perfect harmony with yourself and with others. Today set out on a journey to realize the final expression of undefined divinity that we call God. The One that resides in all of us and yet the One who we all seldom find within. Today let’s make a pledge to fulfill our divine motive as we live through our daily lives…
In today’s day and age, a person’s worth is often gauged specifically on how productive he can be in the worldly life. Often it is seen that in in-spite of a person being creative, he is looked down upon by his peers if he is not productive enough. Indeed in today’s world, a CEO of a profitable commercial venture is regarded with much more respect as compared to an artist who may be struggling to make ends meet. In the worldly sense of the term, if you take things for what they are it makes perfect sense; ingenuity does not always sell…read more
Spirituality by its very essence often appears to be something of a lost pursuit. Often in this world, people feel that a spiritualist is someone who has necessarily failed at pretty much every material pursuit in life and hence has resorted to spirituality because it gives him a false sense of hope, bravado and purpose. However very few people truly try to understand the real essence of being spiritual; and the true purpose behind the same…read more.
The State of Liberation
The world is a wretched place to be; it is literally the nesting place of misery that is spun together with the deceitful and yet beauteous strands of illusion that we call reality. Often at length in this world we see that our desires lead us down a winding path of unending possibilities. Often we see that the journey that we lead on this path leads us a great amount of despondency and torment; and yet somewhere at the end of it all we are left with little satisfaction within ourselves at the thought of achieving all that we have aspired to this day. The art of spirituality aims to emancipate us from this relentless cycle of misery that is brought into play in the mystical journey of life…read more.
Hypocrisy in Spirituality
In today’s day and age, it often happens that man needs to struggle to live his life according to his own beliefs and morals. There are a variety of aspects that end up influencing an individual’s lifestyle; most of which the individual himself is completely unaware of. These aspects are usually so subtle and yet so influential that simply by being unaware of it, an individual runs the risk of not truly knowing what are the motives that drive most of his decisions and what are the factors that influence his daily lifestyle…read more
For years on end, philosophers and mystics have walked this earth preaching, what we all perceive to be the word God. Since countless generations, people have believed in a higher power residing somewhere in the heavens and prayed to it for deliverance. For eons, we the humans of this world have kept our faith and unwavering trust in the belief that there is a higher power, an all-perceiving God that sets things to right and grants us absolution and deliverance. However to this day, while many have preached ways to understand Him and reach Him, very few have actually made the effort to understand the point of His existence…read more…
Two Bytes of Life
In today’s fast paced and indulgent lifestyle, one hardly gets any time to ponder on where he is heading
in his life. Almost every single day, all around us, we can see people who live through life with an
amazing amount of personal and professional ambition; but hardly anyone of them knows what they
truly seek of life. Most of the time, we live through life without bearing any sense of direction as to
where we are truly going to end up. Most of us live our lives just for the sake of doing our chores,
completing our responsibilities and becoming what this society wants us to become. Our desires;
our ambitions become a product of our teachings; the teachings themselves being derived from a
society that is; strictly speaking uninventive and rigid…read more.
Change, Consistency & Success
In life, many times we feel that change is the catalyst in our journey towards success. We often feel and experience that great success can only be reaped if the individual in question is willing to change and adapt to his surroundings more fluidly than others. Success ultimately depends on your ability to mould yourself to your surroundings and work with what you have to achieve maximum results. Often we see that with such a wholesome attitude towards life, through creative changes or transitions that occur in an individual’s life, he is able to reap great success…read more
The Politics of Love
Love; it’s a phenomena that all know of, many yearn of and yet few completely understand. Often in this world, we find that love is equated with relationships; rather in the eyes of the world, love finds consummation in a relationship. But to be truly honest with you, there is nothing as diametrically opposite to love as a relationship. They are indeed two opposite sides of the same coin. It might be hard for some to actually cognize this truth, but that is just the way life is…read more
Many times if we just take a look at life, we feel that most of the things we do start to get repetitive in nature. Many times we just feel that life is just so monotonous that any joy that could be derived out of it is long lost. This in turn spirals us into a destructive spree, wherein we start evaluating each of our decisions that led us to that state of perpetual monotony. The human mind is a wondrously weird thing. It conspires against the seeker with the power of desire; and once that desire is acquired, the seeker no longer finds any purpose of its existence. Simply put, our lives are powered by our desires; but as we live through our life, we start to realize that our desires can never ever give us the true joy. Eventually, we find that the novelty of any achievement, of any fulfilled desires lasts but a second. After that, it’s back to the daily rote of life…read more
The spiritual way of life has always preached an ideology and propagated a lifestyle that is full of selflessness and benevolence. Every single time that God has walked this wretched world, through his own actions he has preached and taught this message of sacrifice and love for all of humanity. Indeed it brings us to a point where we realize that love is indeed nothing but sacrifice. It is only when you can truly go beyond yourself and sacrifice your own pleasures for the greater good of others; is when you can say that you have learnt how to love; it is only then that you can truly realize what it is to love…read more
The Parting of the Souls.
elationships are indeed a weird and confusing aspect of human life. Man always places a great deal of personal trust into relationships that matter the most to him. In a way man clings onto those relationships that he feels define him as a person; he places a great deal of impetus on ensuring that those relationships endure beyond the divides of time, place and needs. However we often find that in this world, nothing is permanent and everything is subject to change. Relationships too are no exception to that rule. With time our relationships change; some blossom into new forms while others wither away as the need that suffices their existence no longer remains there. There are many such relationships that truly define a person and mould him into the man that he becomes. Today I am going to speak about the most important relationship of all; the relationship between a master and his apprentice…read more!
Life is a great mix-up of all things known to man; and most of the times it turns out to be the things that man doesn’t know about that end up influencing his life the most and directing his decisions towards it. Spirituality brings a man closer to realizing that unknown part of himself whilst realizing life in order to make it a more wholesome experience. In the end spirituality bridges the gap between the illusion and reality thus seeking to bridge the paradox that always exists in a man’s life. However this only happens at the end of the journey, where there remains no duality within the man himself; in the run-up to this elusive stage, a seeker is always faced with multitude questions pertaining to life and the illusions that surround him…read more
I have often said that the only lasting emotion in human life is regret. While many would vehemently disagree with the aforementioned statement, they will realize upon self-introspection that it is indeed the truth. In our lives, we often find that we tend to fluidly move through the different emotions that are generally a psychological reaction to the events that transpire in our lives. Upon keen observation, we find that none of these emotions are stable enough; be it happiness, anger or sadness; we always tend to fluidly change course of our psychic reactions based on the things that life throws at us. However, if you but introspect deeply, you shall realize that there is one thing that stays with us through all the different phases of life; that emotion is regret…read more.
