Life is a reflection of blues

‘Journeys constantly remind us of the purpose of our life which is to travel as many places as we can.’  

Hello friends, I am back to home (not my mind though, it is still wandering in the places we have visited) after a tour of 2 weeks long. The trip was just awesome and beyond words. Nonetheless without mentioning it in words it would be difficult to share the experience. To describe everything in brief detail will be impossible, so I have images and the source of description of those will be your own thoughts on it.

There are over dozen of temples which we have visited in Rajasthan but still we lacked time to get enough of them. The idols of temples range from over 3000 years old to 100 years old. But the short trip of Jodhpur was mesmerizing. Chittar Palace and Mehrangarh Fort can catch every tourists’ eye balls. Life was never so blue when I visited Mehrangarh fort.  The architecture, paintings, art works, living style were something you can just wonder about. First let me show you different temples which we visited.

Our life as in colorful shadows and consciousness

“Our life’s journey is similar to a light’s path. We constantly emit light through our soul and when that light hits or interferes with other bodies, their shadows are formed in our brain as Memories. The shade of shadows depends upon the intensity and time we spend with that other soul.” – Jackie Jain

Memories serves the best example of teleportation to the past. Within a second we travel to a world once we used to live in the past. Isn’t it great that we can feel it! We can see the pictures of our past in our brain, we can learn from them, cherish them and share them. How is it possible?! May be because they are stored in our brain as colorful pictures. They are held by neurons with the color values. In between white light and dark shadows, our colorful memories dwell.

You may have heard about a concept called ‘Colored shadows’! It is an interesting concept in which we can see the shadows of objects being colorful. For that to happen the light source have to be of different colors. If we focus different colored light sources on a body, due to the ‘principle of additive color mixing of light’ we can see multiple shadows each in different color, where each color being the reflection of color of each of the light sources. So when reading about this topic I got a crazy thought, are we all just the colored shadows? Are we just reflections of our thoughts? Do all we exist in real? Or we all are just like light which have hit an opaque body and we all are going through reflection, refraction, interference and diffraction of ourselves and other living beings being the light patterns of a different light source? Because our visible spectrum is very small when compared to the total light spectrum.

Is anything in this world real? Don’t say that just because you can see or you can feel things they are real. I mean what tells you whether they are real or fictional? For example what tells you that the featured quote of this post and what you are reading now is not related? What is making you compare and decide? How you can tell that your decision is right?

We didn’t create nature. We don’t know whether they are real. We learn from nature and get some ideas. We develop them into theories which may or may not be true. We just assumed what we believed as true and taught it to the world, which then became world wide accepted concepts. We all have right to learn and understand the basic principles of theories. Because they are not made by the flawless nature, they are made by humans. Not every theory is correct in its development and concept. We may have just fitted them so that they perfectly fit in a puzzle. For example nature gives a clue to one of our question as ‘a thing which is round and have the order of c o i _ ‘ and we assumed it to be coin and we made it a world wide accepted concept. But what if it was a ‘c o i l’ ? And when it comes to round, recently I was confused when I compared what I read and what we were taught at school!

Is our Earth flat? My eye hit this topic recently. Many colorful shadows have formed in my brain regarding this concept. There are a lot of videos in YouTube claiming this. First I laughed a lot, but slowly and slowly my laughter disappeared. Suddenly I started to believe what they said.  It was because of perfect explanation of each and every phenomenon. Just like the puzzle as above, I was confused. Our earth is round for sure, but is it sphere? Or is it like disc? I am not saying they are completely true about the theory. But they have fitted coin in the puzzle. Just think. Don’t compare what you are seeing with what you were taught. Just think afresh. Not only on this but on everything. No one said science is only for Scientists! Bring out the science in you. That’s our purpose. Don’t get distracted by the materialistic things.

Our consciousness level is just like a mapping technique. When we see something with our eyes we just see it with our lens, nothing more. It is our brain which recognizes what we see and then gives us the output. So thus there are answers in our brain. But we have set a wrong formula in our brain. We have set information which we were taught as true and the base of comparison. Then we compare everything with them being unaware of their truth and reality. So compare things with what you see and what you think they may work like. Who knows you may come with a different theory.

We all should try to increase our consciousness level. We should try to tune in with frequency of nature and science. We should try to understand nature and science behind it. I am also on the same path. It is never easy but it is worth exploring!
So discover the colorful shadows of your life.

Any hey… I am going to my home town in Rajasthan with my family for a 15 day tour which will start from 17th of this month. Yes, day after tomorrow. Not even couple of days are remaining. That’s why I was unable to read all your posts from some time. Ultra busy. Shopping, packing and planning. I am not sure whether I will be able to post when on tour, as it would become difficult to juggle. But I will try though.

And have you watched the 2nd trailer of Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War? Isn’t it great! Excited about it. But what happened to Spider man’s voice? 😛

Wishing everyone a very very beautiful week ahead. Wish me happy journey in advance. And as always, thanks for reading.

Being happy for no reason

“If we start searching for a reason to feel happy, then our brain will get used to feel sad by default when there is no reason to feel happy about, which is not good. So start feeling happy for no reason.” – Jackie Jain

After a long time, I stepped back on the land of Earth,
All I saw was cleaner roads but brains were full of Dirt.

Once upon a time, people used to have lot of respect and self-worth.
Now don’t know why people worry so much from the moment they take birth.

Life here was perfect and full of satisfaction when I last saw this place.
Now I see everyone is just running for power and fame in a bloody race.

People surely have stepped up rapidly in technology.
But they have quickly stepped down in humanity.

Many of the humans have seen me coming down,
But still no one came to offer me my crown.

I heard hearts were breaking, minds were screaming.
But still hands were working and pockets were filling.

There is a massive moral breakdown in society.
Without faith in hearts people here are praying to deity.

My friend Love, who once used to rule this beautiful land.
His photo is now placed in hearts decorated by a garland.

The new ruler who rules mercilessly and without compassion, is Money.
He is the destroyer and people still let him rule happily. Isn’t it funny?

I felt sad and was about to leave this land which is now not more than a mess.
But just then, I finally heard someone calling me by my name, ‘Happiness, Happiness’.

That 6 year old baby in a moment stole my heart,
This is the only category which showcases my art.

*Then in few seconds,
Happiness just ascends.*

“Don’t feel happy only when you have a reason. Feel happy even when you don’t have a reason to feel happy. Because happiness may come back anytime. We shouldn’t disappoint him once again.”

Happiness

Thanks for reading. Have a beautiful week ahead.

The temple within-Do you mind?

“Our brain is the receiving antenna which receives energy from the Universe and uses it in processing our thoughts. So always seek for receiving positive energy” – Jackie Jain

There comes a moment in everyone’s life where we think to seek within rather than outside. It’s not weird to do so, even though some think it is. So let’s travel inside. Here we go!  When someone asks ‘Which looks smaller outside but is bigger inside?’, the first thing that should strike in our mind is Brain. Our Brain which holds trillions of neurons, is the only processor of our tasks and thoughts! For lifetime. Just imagine how it does such complicated tasks so simply? Just because of its programming style. The complex nerves are very well networked within, so that the signals from all the parts of body are well transferred to and fro so efficiently. It is impossible to recreate such architectural structure of Brain with perfect processing capabilities. But there are doors of defense system in our brain, which are hard to break with diamond but easy to break with negativity and over thinking. Yes, negativity break all the doors of defense system of Brain thus making it hard to process tasks and transfer/receive signals. Our inner voice becomes deaf and inner eyes become blind in such situations. We may suffer with memory loss and depression. So we have to avoid negativity and over thinking.

Have you ever thought how we can interpret our own thoughts without even hearing them! Our inner voice don’t have a voice in real, it has a light. Light to guide us spiritually. In Vedas it is adeptly written that ‘Everything we perceive outside is Maya (Illusion) and reality lies within.’ We are given a form and then separated from reality. Then we are given light outside and void of it inside. Some holes are created for keeping our hopes alive on finding reality. Each and every way through which we can communicate through our outer world id due to those holes. Nostrils, Ears, Mouth, Eyes all comes in this category. See how all these parts are assembled in us by which we can carry all the day to day functions. Can it happen by chance? No way! Right? Every accessory which we need in this journey of search for reality, is been gifted to us by default. We are all perfectly wired with our emotions, feelings, thoughts and stimuli. We have to foster our acumen when it comes to truth and good. Only by being on the right path inside we can be on the right path outside.

Isolate yourselves from all the negative energies and attract positive energy. Brain is like an Amplifier. It will grow whatever you think, irrespective of their nature whether positive or negative. First decide what you think is positive or negative, then enter into details of the thought. And remember, negative thoughts grow quickly because they destroy everything that comes in the way, where as positive thoughts grow gradually but strongly, because they build everything that comes in the way. Our Brain is the temple to every part. It is the part that blesses all other parts with their functions and abilities. It gives peace and confidence to other parts thus opening a spiritual path for them. All other parts communicate with brain through nerves and share their problems & wishes. Our Brain blesses them with positive energy and fulfills their wishes. But what if it doesn’t have enough positive energy to pass on? Do you mind? You have to. Stock up the positive energy. You may need it anytime. You are not God, you are the priest of that temple. You have to perform your duties to make it helpful for others.

Story so Far…

Wheel No.1: (initiated by Neerja)

Once upon a time there existed a wasteland in Patliputra. There lived a little boy named Aditya who was only child of Madhavi and Shankara. They used to love him a lot and wanted him to dream big and get out of this wasted land. But Aditya unlike his parents had some another dream. He wanted to improve and convert his wasteland into a dreamland where everybody wants to live. Aditya knew he had to convince his parents for this but he didn’t how will they react and whether they will approve this idea of his dreamland.

Wheel No.2: (added by Tejas)

The clock struck two past midnight as a stream of snowy moonlight sneaked through the swinging-with-the-breeze curtains and scattered on Aditya’s bed. As the squeaking sparrow went back inside the ancestral wall clock after two tweets, Aditya sneaked out of his bed quietly.

He stuffed pillows under his blanket in a shape to disguise as himself. He tiptoed out to the backyard. He double checked on both sides for no one following him before going behind the banyan tree.

As planned, Shivansh was already waiting for him there. A nod from both of them assured, everything was on track. Aditya plucked out a wrinkled paper from his pocket and Shivansh’s eyes twinkled with a beaming smile.

Wheel No.3: ( added by Sri)

With quivering fingers Aditya unfolded the paper. The near-yellow paper definitely looked old.

“Here”, Aditya smiled, “is the key to our dreams….If only we can get hold of this, we shall have enough resources to convert this wasteland into the land of our dreams”.

Shivansh’s eyes shone in genuine glee. He intently looked at the unfolded paper in front of his eyes. Within seconds his eye-brows stitched into each other transforming into puzzled curiosity.

“But this looks empty Adi. This is a blank paper.”

Aditya smiled. A hint of mischief waved past his face.

“Just wait and watch the magic”, Adi whispered.

He then held up the paper and placed it against the circular moon. The moonlight diffused through the ridges and furrows of the wrinkled paper lending a surreal look. Within seconds a faint map appeared on it.

Shivansh couldn’t believe his eyes. He had many questions but Aditya’s eyes were fixed on the map.

With intense seriousness he pointed to a lotus emblem right at the middle of the map.

“And here is our destination – Padmabharan – the lotus urn”.

Wheel No.4: (added by Nimi)

“What is this? Who gave you this?” Shivansh’s face revealed all his zest.

Aditya is still carrying a calm face beaming at the map. Shivansh turned blue.

“Adi, this won’t make any trouble. Right?” His voice trembled slightly.

“Calm down Shiva. Don’t be over reactive as always.” Without taking eyes off the map, still held against the moon, Aditya stepped closer to Shivansh and whispered. “We are going to make history in Pataliputra.” His voice expressed extreme determination.

Shivansh stood with his mouth half-open wondering how this piece of old paper and two fourteen-years old boys going to make history.

Aditya continued. ” This is the ultimate treasure. Once we reach here, this will give us everything we need.” He pointed Padmabharan.

“But how can we find this? This is just a map, barely a map that we have never seen before.” Shivansh started losing his patience.

“I read about this in a book owned by my Dada. I got this map from the slit on the hard bind of the book. This Padmabharan is somewhere here.” Aditya continued examining the map.

Shivansh made a step aback and checked his premise. Somewhere here? With fear and anxiety, he asked. “Adi, don’t make me more confused. Will you please explain?’

Aditya nodded “Yes!”

Wheel No.5: (added by Darshith)

“Some days before dying, my Dada handed me a book and asked me to read it carefully and said that each written word in it is TRUE. He also asked me to pursue it with someone whom I can trust blindly,” whispered Adi, and continued, “I couldn’t make heads or tails about the story till I accidentally found this wrinkled paper from the slit of the book.”
Shivansh was listening attentively as if he was hypnotized and can do nothing to break the spell.

Adi continued his charm of revealing things slowly. He said, “In the book, there is mentioning of a mystery map which reveals itself when placed against the circular moon and the first time, I also had the same expression and goosebumps, just like you.”
“On reading further, it says how the people pursuing Padmabharan has to prove their worth that they are deserving of it and hence to get their hands on it, they will face many struggles and sacrifices.”
On listening this, Shivansh was scared like hell and said, “Is it like the survival of the fittest?”
Adi, who had no clue of what is there in the future, said reassuringly, “I don’t know and let’s hope there is no copies of this book or the map and no other living being has any idea of the existence of Padmabharan.”

 

And the story continues. . . 

Wheel No.6: 

“So what else was written in that book?” asked Shivansh finally clearing his throat.

“It says that my dada was a great scientist in those times. He was adept in calculating energies. In his times he successfully found why our Patliputra is a waste land. He believed that every point on Earth falls under one of these categories -Positive, Negative and Neutral energy. Positive indicates development, Neutral- being unaffected with energies and Negative- destruction. Our Patliputra falls on Negative point. No wonder why our land is a waste land!” said Aditya feeling proud of his dada.

“Interesting! Then what’s the solution to this?” asked Shivansh looking at the waste land and wondering how Aditya’s dada came up with such an interesting theory in those times.

“My dada made a device by which we can vary the energies. So we have to take the energy level of Patliputra beyond the threshold of Positive energy level. That’s it.  That device is called ‘Padmabharan’. Our Patliputra can again be developed into our dream land. We will do that.” Said Aditya shining like a Sun, going with his name, ‘Aditya’, ‘The Sun’.

“Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, don’t you know science? and why didn’t your dada change the energies then!?” asked Shivansh using his logical mind.

“But Energy can be converted from one form to another. And we can only change the energies once in 2012 years, when the energies undergo through ‘Natural transition’ on a specific full moon day.  My dada knew he won’t survive that long so he handed me that book. That specific full moon day is today. That place is here. And we have just one hour left. By 4 am the ‘Natural transition’ of energies will stop and we can’t change the fate of our land until the next 2012 years.”

Aditya again lifted the map towards the full moon and was once again puzzled by seeing that map! The map was not as in regular maps. It just had a lotus emblem on it.

Aditya surveyed his surroundings with his mobile flash light for 20 minutes, but all his attempts went futile. Then he thought Lotus may be not the real lotus, just a mere symbol. Then just in a moment the veil of the mystery lifted as Aditya saw a Lotus symbol carved on the bench resting under a banyan tree. Shivansh too noticed it. They both ran towards that bench!

**This is a work of fiction**

And that’s it. This ends my part of the story. 100 words is too less, and because there is a rising trend  in word count by previous writers, I just spiked it up. My curiosity made me do that. I really need a novel out of this. Now I have so many people to suggest, but I go with Hema ji  . I stumbled upon her blog just today and what I saw was a beautiful Sci-Fi from her based upon third millennium. So I think she will carry it perfectly.
Common Hema ji, Save Patliputra from being a waste land for another 2012 years. 
Good luck!! 

Thanks for reading! Let’s March first.
