Forward

Let everything be soaked – in the raindrops awaited after a long period of draught. Sometimes the evaluations of permutations of life, needs to be stopped, to allow events to pass through.

Peace.

The brain is anyways deficit in it’s capabilities to determine the complexities of existence.

Indebted

There was nothing there – no phone calls – no artificial hellos and gestures, and yet the kind and gentle acts of people that we have known in the past – who have gone all out – all the way to show them without getting anything in return – brings tears to my eyes.

Unconditional help and joyful help and affection is unparallel gift in this world – very few people are capable of giving it. And in the position that I am in today – where I have been blessed to receive it – I feel so choked with gratitude and happiness that there do exist such people and feeling lucky that I am alive to know this.

Relatives are those who love and care from heart and not bring petty issues in between but go all out the way to make sure that things succeed without putting their ego in between. And in this experience of mine, I have realized that all relationships are those of the bondings of the heart and less of that predefined by blood. What flows inside builds the bridges outside.

I hope in my lifetime , I would be less judgemental and more opportunistic when it comes to giving unconditional support to the people I know in my life, Giving just for the sake of giving – and that too with joy – is a great power in itself. I hope to discover its depth and beauty in my lifetime.

Amen.

Incentive

“I’ve been dealing with the superwealthy for several years now, and this may be hard for those of us born in the real world to understand, but it can be a hard life, Someone born into money has no incentive to strive. Why should they, when everything is handed to them? We all like to go to bed feeling like we accomplished something that day. They don’t have that feeling, which is essential to self-esteem.  Sure, they get the fashion, the travel, the homes. But when it comes to friendship, to relationships, they wonder, ‘Does this person love me, or my money? It’s hard to trust people.'”

– Clay Cockrell (Therapist)

Time

So when we see life around and notice that all things are momentary and moving towards non existence – one tries to understand the concept of existence – and it’s causal essence. What is that “one” factor that IS and so the existence exists?.

It is when one starts to think like this – one starts to feel Time as an Entity. The limitations of human mind to perceive the time – as a whole – starts to manifest in the reactions in the day to day life. There is no notion of timelessness existing in our brain or our body. Yet if Time is an Entity which has its existence- one wonders if the concept of Timelessness exists – when the initiating of Time did not yet begin – and do we as humans have the capability of reaching that point?.

Someone queried – if you would start to see things in the form that they really are – matter that is moving towards a short span destruction – not only would you be deprived of a normal living but also move towards an insane, chaotic form of thinking.  All these intellectual speculations would yield no results – no results at all – and not only that – they would deprive of the bliss that you experience by voluntarily remaining ignorant of them.

That is one perspective- which definitely exists. But by questioning – and by becoming aware – we become wiser – in some ways – of the false projections of this world – though no matter how loud they are – are short spanned and baseless.  In making such a statement – I feel that I am hitting the limitations of my emotional capacities – because one cannot immediately state – that denial of justice that one sees everyday on the streets is short spanned and has no consequences.

So we see that the duality is co-existing. The absoluteness of the present moment and the timelessness of the existence (if we assume that it led to emergence of Time as an entity). This duality – is the one that is causing fear and discomfort in our hearts. If some one was to get of out this duality – in some ways – then there would be no need for external projections like – “my family, my house, my education,my ….”… and the identity crisis would end.

Survival with limited resources – would not enable me to think thus – I would then be only busy making my ends meet. However, if a solution is found – that is cross – cutting across the different dimensions of our existence – irrespective of backgrounds,education, ignorance and upbringing – that is – being a species of human being suffices to reach towards the solution – then there is hope for evolution of humanity.

I have heard that solution – being called thoughtless awareness – going beyond the mind and crossing boundaries of our minuscule existence.  Desiring freedom – is a good idea any day.

Unfortunately human beings have made very little progress in the understanding of awareness probably because mental understanding is not the right path to achieve it – because achieving awareness is in effect- capturing the irregularities of the mind – so how can it be used as the tool to reach the goal?.

Oh I trust in the infinite potentialities of a human being –  Any human being has an equivalent probability of being 100% wise and 100% stupid at alternate points of time :-). But we cannot stop trying – can we – …. Use yourself as a guinea pig, listen carefully, filter out that which does not assist you in  your goal.

The Unknown

As we know,
There are known knowns.
There are things we know we know.
We also know
There are known unknowns.
That is to say
We know there are some things
We do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns,
The ones we don’t know
We don’t know.

Sleep

sleep,sweet sleep,
giant comforter,
abode of creation,
moments at God’s place.
the beautiful Healer that whispers.
dreams in our hearts
charming our senses away
to the Other worlds

humanity resting on the,
Strength  of this unnamed savior,
Until the divine light
merges the day and night,
and takes us to the higher realm,
Where bonds of  life,
silently break.

Oswald

oswald

Whenever I had watched the Oswald tv cartoon series I used to feel the fragmentation of attention taking place in the positive sense – moving from the chaos to a place of complete understanding and absolute clarity. The colors the speech and the pace just completely went inside my attention. It was like living in a perfection. That made me curious about the person who had worked on this series – what really inspired him and triggered this which had strong undercurrents of healing energy inside it – should be someone in a completely different world altogether… on reading one of his interviews I found what I had suspected all along ;). Excerpts from his interview:

Q:What sound or noise do you love?

Dan: When I’m up in my studio and hear my kids coming home from school. I always come downstairs for hugs and an afternoon snack. Seeing their father when they get home from school is probably not a big deal for them (because it’s the way it’s always been), but I know lots of kids who don’t get to see their parents until well after they’ve eaten dinner. I’m very fortunate to see my children as much as I do and sometimes want them to stay the age they are right now forever, but—as usual—they disobey me and get bigger all the time.

Q: What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
Dan: None. Not only would I be totally incapable of doing anything other than exactly what I do, but I really have absolutely no interest in anything else. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but that’s the truth.

Q: Do you listen to music while you create books?
Dan: Yes! I listen to music when I paint, much to the dismay of my family, because I’ll listen to the same artist or CD over and over for months. I’m a huge fan of Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys. I also listen to The Polyphonic Spree, probably for the same reason; it’s really joyful, uplifting, and spiritual music. Painting is meditation for me. It calms me down.
It’s also great for me because, unlike producing a TV series or working on a feature film, it’s only me.

And beyond

So when one is on the path of self correction, one path can be to observe what one is doing all the time.After introspection note down reactions and behaviors that were inconsistent and suggest solutions for them.One of the walls that one hits – doing the above activity is that the facts that sum up do not provide the complete picture. Or to put it in other words, the words are distanced from the implementation by a vast degree.The reality, is greater than the sum of the factual parts.So that implies the medium of conveying the information is incomplete. Which in turn, implies, that there does exist another medium that can hold the definition of moment in itself?. Probably, Abstractions (like paintings etc.) are pointers to that incompleteness being expressed and come closer to it.

The point is – our daily activities revolve around the same sensory perceptions in combination with our patterned reactions matrix existing. To get out of this flux, energy needs to be absorbed by our senses/brain?/enlightenment – so that this reaction pattern stops and we move to higher realms. Self correction through introspection has its limits. It is when these limits are discovered that one surrenders and moves towards knowing the higher identity of existence.
