Conspiracy is a serious word but it is most appropriate. If you are uncomfortable you may use planning but that is physical preparation. Conspiracy is state of mind to manipulate by any means necessary. Most of the time we are involved in conspiracy. Difficult to pinpoint when it starts. May be attempt to cheat in a game in Kinder Garden was first conspiracy. Something on social media inspired me to write following:
ईंसान: समय की प्रत्यचां पर उछलने वाले बिचारे इंसान को ज़िन्दगी को खेल समझते हुए भी, ज़िन्दगी को एक षड्यंत्र में बदल कर बड़ी ख़ुशी महसूस करते है यध्धपि षड्यंत्र किसी के भी नियंत्रण मे ज़्यादा देर नहीं रहते ।
Above would nearly translate in English as under:
Human: Tied to the fate, human do realise that the life is a play, yet they feel pleasure in converting into a conspiracy even though no conspiracy remains in anybody’s control for long.
Thus living becomes a long chain of planning, deception, manipulation and conspiracies. Newer and newer ideas are invented everyday to achieve desires or rather to chase thoughts we call ideas. How-so-ever small that desire may be.
Example of a smallest conspiracy:
Some day at 4.30 AM.
Thoughts wander over sublime ocean of silence beneath which are buried all the answers. Hovering but with inability to penetrate the silence. Such a conflict. Does this conflict produce the energy which sustain the existence or this conflict is the cause of misery produced by our stubbornness to cling to past. Stubbornness which forces us to read what is not written. Continue reading
Most misunderstood philosophy.
If Gita or Bhagwat Gita is most misunderstood book or holy scripture/speech than among those who were born on this earth, Buddha who was also known as Sidhartha once, is the most misunderstood person. Frequently misquoted and misunderstood. As a Prince he had difficulty in accepting the realities of life which everyone so easily accepts and as a hermit he easily accepted harsh actuality of the earth without a murmur. His attempt to communicate, as always, faced linguistic hurdles created by ignorant people.
Understanding Buddha’s Sunyata or emptiness
To understand Buddha is to understand his teaching for he was no different from what he taught. Continue reading
An unhappy or depressed feeling.
So we are not feeling happy today. Sorry I got it wrong. We are unhappy today, Oh it is worse we are depressed over this pathetic life, selfish & thankless people, cruel boss, nagging or ignorant spouse or what not. We have ample to choose from the menu to be unhappy on any single day. If we want to get any better let us understand the world around us.
Recognize 10 Truths of life:
- Every human on this planet and elsewhere is like us. The only difference is our/his experiences and its interpretation.
- We can not control the future. It is evolving in its own mysterious ways.
- Humans are inherently selfish. In fact this selfishness is built-in to save us from destroying ourselves and to take good care of ourselves like animals. But we have a problem of greed. We want to accumulate anything or everything for some future use.
- We are like apes i.e. monkey. We must visit Zoo once in a while to observe monkeys. Like them we can not resist to copy others. In fact this behaviour is an industry called Fashion. We wear things, eat and drink things that hurt, just because it is in fashion. Continue reading
What is Religion?
Nothing in this world is static. Everything is changing, every moment. So are we. I am not the same person as I was ten years ago or ten days ago or yesterday. Like seasons or fashions things change while resembling similar but never exactly remain same. Similarly our language is also changing. Within the same language the meaning of the words change. What was the meaning of ‘sexy’ in 1912, is not the same meaning in 2012. What was the meaning of ‘stink’ in 1812, is not the same as in 2012.
Similarly the meaning of the words like religion & Karma etc. have also undergone a change.
Religion, Organized Religion, spirituality, Superconsciousness, Karma and myths!
What is Religion?
Religion is something more than mere scruples or ethics. There is one core principle of ethics: ‘Do no such thing to others as we do not want others to do to us.’ All known scruples, morals and ethics are derivatives of this principle. Ethics governs our dealings with others. But religion is something more than that. It governs how we live, think, act or even die.
Religion has three more components: Self conduct, Rituals & Belief, with, without or on vague reasons. Continue reading
