Emptiness

Emptiness is not just absence of everything or presence of nothing. Sometimes Emptiness also comes in presence of everything or absence of nothing..

Sometimes the feeling of emptiness is  because we desire for everything and we assume we have them.  And when we don’t get what we desire, we feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you know everything. And when you realize there is always something which you don’t know, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you own everything you have. And when you can’t buy happiness with that thing, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think everyone you know is yours. And when you see their different faces and varying character, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you believe in fixed way of viewing at things. And when some things don’t match up with your view, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think everything around is constant. And when you see yourself in different situations, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you attach yourself with other things. And when you realize that you have to carry them with you, every moment, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you dream something without a goal. And when that dream doesn’t come true after a period, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t adjust your plan according to situation. And when that plan doesn’t work the way you have planned, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you are superior to everyone. And when you realize you are not and there are many great people out there, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think time is always in your hands. And when time changes and gets out of your hand, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you are full busy in daily schedule. And when something important pops out in between that, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think materialism is life. And when you feel spiritually low and mentally ill, you feel that you are empty.

Emptiness is when you look only for success. And when you realize being simple is a happier option, you feel that you are empty.

Emptiness is when you want to be famous and a star. And when you come to know being anonymous is more peaceful, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you want to be rich. And when you realize that richer people have more enemies than friends, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t believe in God. And when you are in trouble, you don’t know whom to offer a prayer, then you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you don’t take decisions as per the requirement. And when it turns out to be a failure, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you take a path followed by masses. And when you don’t find your destiny, you feel empty.

Emptiness is when you have a weight in your brain in the form of problems. And when you don’t write down how you feel, you feel more heavy. You feel empty.

Emptiness is when you think you will live forever. And when day by day you grow older, you feel empty.

So what did you learn? Is emptiness just absence of something or sometimes it comes even just because of presence of something! So never desire for anything just because it will benefit you in future. Do something which removes your habit of desiring. Be happy and peaceful with what you have and don’t take them for granted. Never attach yourself deeply with anything or anyone, do your duty and move. Don’t follow the path others decide for you, choose the path on which you feel you will find your destiny, but remember, your path should not hurt others. Don’t feel happy or sad because of situations and its result. Because happiness don’t come from senses or desires, it comes from spiritual development and self-satisfaction.

To be frank, I was feeling empty from a few days now and it was taking me away from my happiness. There was no real reason to feel empty but still I was feeling so. For just avoiding that emptiness, I filled this blog post. I think I feel better after writing this and I hope the same after you read it.

I don’t know for some reason, the comments which I make on other blogs are not showing up. They are going to the spam folder. Hope it gets resolved soon. Thanks for the support.

Thanks for reading. Stay blessed. Keep Smiling. 🙂

F is for Fuzzy: Day-6

“Nothing in this world is completely true, not even the universal fact that The Sun rises in the east! Then how can we blindly categorize the issue under radar into true or false? It can be anywhere in between. Yes, that’s fuzzy. Our life itself is fuzzy”

Oxford dictionary defines the term ‘Fuzzy’ as unclear or indistinct.

When someone says that his life is boring, tell him to elaborate it! Our life cannot be simply boring. It is fuzzy. Actually he should say like this, ‘My life is 50% occupied, 20% I am not doing anything new and 30% I am lazy. Now such answer can be satisfying. Life is not boring, he is himself making his life boring. So we get clarity on life only by being fuzzy! You are still unclear right? Yes, you are on the right path, partially.

Categories may seem important but still they are not the definite boundaries. There is always something in between and something beyond these boundaries. I want people to stop categorizing people and things. There are many wide spread categorizations like good and bad, true and false, male and female, high and low, rich and poor, black and white, native and foreigner, intelligent and idiot, literate and illiterate, introvert and extrovert, Hindu and Muslim etc. . . I think they just divide people in a wider perspective. We can be anywhere in between, so why the division. We don’t know the problem of this division now, but slowly and slowly this division keeps accumulating. We should stop it before it takes a different turn. Be clear in this fuzzy life. Be fuzzy in division, be clear in unity.

But there are some categories where fuzzy is ruled out. Right or wrong, moral or immoral comes under such. Being fuzzy shouldn’t harm anyone.

When fuzzy is about unclear, fuzzy logic is about getting the clarity. The logic to predict the outcome depending upon its fuzziness is fuzzy logic. For example it may rain or it may not rain but what if it just drizzles? I mean everything is fuzzy in nature. Everyone. We don’t have a clarity upon anything. It is just that we predict them by their actions and thus we get some clarity on them, I said some. Use the fuzzy logic to know completely about the thing.

I know the fuzziness of this post is higher, but the reason I chose this topic is because I was actually unclear. Future, Freedom, Family, Friends, Favorite, Force, Favour, Formula, Flaw there were many words which I could have selected, (Family and friends are not topics which I could write just in one post) so I was struck. But then it struck. In my final year project I had worked on soft set theory which was based upon fuzziness. Yes, I also have some knowledge on technical aspects of fuzzy sets and fuzzy controls, but discussing about it here is logic-less. That’s it, my fuzziness came to an end, as I took the word fuzzy.

Fuzzy is also important in taking decisions. It gives the complete 360 degree view, rather than only 90,180,270 and 360 degree view. By being fuzzy about an product, we can understand it from every angle. We can understand how and where it can be more productive! We have to make our life productive even though it is fuzzy.

So putting an end to this fuzziness, I want to conclude that no one is completely perfect and no one is completely flawed. We are fuzzy versions of ourselves. Even this post was fuzzy but sure with some clarity. We have to accept the people the way they are. We shouldn’t try to change people, we should just try to change their way of thinking.

This post is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 6 and it is on letter ‘F’. F is for Fuzzy. There is clarity in Fuzziness. Hope you liked it.

Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

And as always, thanks for reading. Have a good time. Be fuzzy, get clarity.

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

The ancient History and science in it- from the lens of my recent travel experience

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. – Genesis 1:27

So I am occupied with the concept of our Ancient History and our origin recently. Not for the first time though, but for surely for the first time in 2016. I often time travel my thoughts back to those days when our civilization was still in its initial phase. How step by step we transformed ourselves and gained knowledge from and about our environment. But still I always doubt our origin and our purpose! Okay, let me be clear why all these things are now echoing in my brain. Actually I visited an Ancient temple with my family last week. The temple is near to Samalkot, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh, South India.  I was amazed by the serene beauty the temple offered, but was shocked when the Pandit of the temple told that this temple was built around 9000 years ago. I was like, come again?! It is a Vishnu temple as said by the Pandit. He gave us a pamphlet and this is how he described the temple’s history to us.

Once upon a time there was a deep forest named Keekaranyam. A child named Dhruva lived there. He was the son of the king of that place. The mother of Dhruv was Suneeta. Dhruv’s step mother was against the decision of Dhruv becoming the king. Once Suneeta called Dhruv and told “You are meant to become the King and rule the kingdom in a great manner. For that you have to pray and perform austerity to Lord Maha Vishnu and get his blessings. With his blessings you will become the king. So start praying to him.”

By listening to this, Dhruv moved to Muni Sandilya ashram. Muni knowing Dhruv’s mind, called Dhruv. Then muni told Dhruv that “My son, You start praying to the divine form of Lord Vishnu. Perform Austerity to him. He will appear and fulfill your wish.” Then Dhruv started praying to Lord Vishnu. After some period, impressed by the prayers of Dhruv, Lord Vishnu appeared in front of Dhruv. But by seeing the divine and shining light of Lord Vishnu, Dhruv being a child got frightened. Seeing this Lord Vishnu spoke, “Son, Why are you afraid? I am in you. I am the same size as yours. Don’t worry” and saying this he reduced the intensity of his light and appeared in the form same as Dhruv’s height. Then he pressed the cheeks of the child, blessed him and turned into a statue. So because of this incidence, this statue is also called Shrungara Vallabha Swamy. It is also referred by the name “Tholi Tirupati”, which literally means “First Tirupati”. It is said that it was the first ever statue form of Lord Vishnu. Even some celebrities have visited this place and this temple was of great importance. Some of them include RudramaDevi, Vikramaarkulu and Queen Victoria. And Queen Victoria said that when her husband saw the statue, it appeared as 6 feet to him as he was 6 feet. It is also often said that the statue appears same the height of the viewer. Later idols of goddess Lakshmi Devi and Bhudevi were installed near the idol of Lord Vishnu. I too observed the statue as my height. But for that we have to stand at a distance. When I saw it from the place from where it is said to be seen, it appeared as if the ground is slightly sloped or at an angle, which made our point of view coincide with the statue’s place appearing to us as the same height.

When the Pandit finished his description I was in that place but my imagination has reached the sky. I mean to the stars. When he mentioned the name Dhruv, the first thing that came in my mind was Dhruva taara story which translates as Dhruva star. The story which we learned as children and were fascinated about the story. The story goes like this, Dhruv wanted to be seen by everyone in the world, so God converted him into a star, the brightest star! And also this history mentions that Dhruv got frightened with the divine light of Lord Vishnu. Who knows this may be same Dhruv, just imagining.  Who knows he may have diverted from his wish and desired to be a star. Let your thoughts wander just as mine did.

But what happened next was the real wonder. When I saw the surroundings of the temple, I was like Oh My! It was mystical. Beautiful carvings, unreadable scriptures, some amazing sculptures and what not! It seemed as if I have stepped into an another world. There were many carvings which appeared to me strange. There was a well on the left side of the backyard and it is believed that couples who don’t have children can get blessed with a child if they bath with this water. Amazing! But one scene which left me wondering was an area which resembled like a Dam. Don’t get me wrong but it is my honest opinion on this. You can see the resemblance below in the pics. It means this could be the oldest dam in the world or may be not. There are dozens of pillars with some unreadable scriptures on them. I tried to use my intelligent mind here but all attempts went futile. I just took a pic of one of them and kept it for future use. Then I saw the Dhwaja Stambam of the temple which honestly appeared strange to me. This was quite different than what I saw in other temples. This had some horizontal lines at regular intervals which looked like stages of a rocket launch. I touched many of the carvings of the temple but it felt like they were made of some different material. There were many small statues which looked strange to me. And there was also a ventilator to the left extreme left corner of the temple. And coming to the statue of Lord Vishnu aided by his two wives, was so bright and in a smiling posture. Pandit opposed me when I was about to take the photo. The shanka and Chakra were on the opposite sides when compared to the regular idols of Vishnu. For one moment I imagined shanka as the sound generator when the engine starts or blows horns and Chakra as the wheel or steering handle. That adventurous visit to the temple was amazing and mystical. Some parts of the temple were modernized though for convenience.

But when I came home I wanted to know more about this temple. We visited this temple as my father’s friend told my father about it. I searched it on internet and got little information, though I found myself landing into a new different world of a show called Ancient Aliens. First I started laughing and then slowly my laugh disappeared. My eye brows got raised. I moved near to the screen. That one dialogue was enough, “Are we the Sons of Aliens? Do Aliens landed on Earth and taught us about the science they knew about? Were they more developed than us then? Were they the one, who opened the knowledge gate for us and transformed our evolution process? Do we speak their language?” These questions from videos of Ancient Aliens made me mad. There have been wide spread belief that Gods came from heaven, from the sky! Any bells? Even in Ramayana and Mahabharata there are mentioning of wars that were fought in air. Do they knew how to fly? There are many evidences that the Gods used to travels in flying chariots and Gods had vahanas, which means vehicles. Or they had the knowledge of flying vehicles using which they fought wars. Even Sanjaya from Mahabharata used to see the war proceedings by sitting in the palace itself. They had cameras and transmitters? Devanagari is known to be language from which all languages were made. And Devanagari was the language of Gods. Again I wondered of them. I don’t know to what extent their sayings are true, but they have definitely given me something to ponder upon. I am not saying they are completely true about their words. I also believe in existence of God. There are many edges which are not clear about our ancient culture and origin of humans. We are unaware of our purpose of existence. We were imparted the knowledge of sciences by Gods. Or they were, you say. Just leaving it to your own imagination. Much of the ancient science is hidden under the land of Earth! The science treasure.

I am also a religious person. But I do not follow any one religion, even though being a Hindu. All religions are one and came from the same source. The creators of World. The God. We all are his sons and daughters. No use of fighting for religions and going oblique from their very purpose of formations. Every religion teaches Peace and love. We all are here for a short period and we have to make our life worth-living. People have found money as the base and keep running for it in the opposite direction from their true purpose of their existence. We have to step in our minds and search for our purpose and our origin. Who knows the purpose is waiting for us to be discovered.

And concluding this with one more thing I observed, recently they said that the waves radiated by the Sun make a sound which resembles like “Aum”. Aum is also the most divine sound and all the audible sounds belongs to the space between the mouth beginning from the root of the tongue to the end of the lips. So Aum is the supreme divine sound. And who are we? hUMans! I think you clearly got what I am trying to say here.

So here are some pics I have taken during that temple visit, not a photographer though. The temple which made made think about our existence once again, about humanity, truth and purpose. From yesterday evening I am completely involved in this concept and can’t stop my imagination and unable to limit it. Just hoping to land back on the land of reality from land of imagination with expressing them in words. Thanks for reading.

Hide and seek with our wishes

“We all wish for something in our life and then it is registered in the wish list of our universe. When we sleep, that thing is hidden in our life by the almighty depending upon our determination. If more determined, it is near and simply hidden, if less determined, it is far and cryptically hidden. And when you wake up, you are given an opportunity to seek where in your life, your wishes have been inserted. But there are also terms and conditions which apply”  – Jackie Jain

You wish and it is saved in your universe,
It is a wish that no one else can ever reverse.

But Wishes change with time, so a new version
of framing a destiny is proposed for every human.

So it is determination of yours which will decide
your destiny and path. Be wise while taking the side.

Wish for something with determination and sleep without fear,
wake up and start seeking your wish which is hidden just near.

Don’t wish for something else until your current wish is fulfilled,
because once you wish for other thing, your determination is killed.

Almighty deletes that wish from your universe for fulfilling your new wish,
Don’t blame others for what you get in life, because you cook your own dish.

So chose your wish carefully, it is been watched by universe.
If you are not determined towards it, nothing can go more worse.

You have the pen and you only have the paper.
You cook your dish and you only have the supper.

In your knowledge only your wish is hidden,
But how will you get it if your mind don’t widen?

Wish for one at a time, Don’t wish for more
until you take your current wish to its shore.

Wish for something without fear.
And seek for it in fifth gear.

 

Wish

Yes, there is a system which registers your wish in a database and depending upon your determination, it is hidden in your universe by the almighty while you sleep. You just have to seek it when you wake up. Don’t worry if your wish is not getting fulfilled, 6 billion people, it takes time. Don’t give up. It may take time, but for sure it will be listened by the universe. Be determined. Have a wonderful day. Start wishing. Thanks for reading.

The clouds of words- Stories

Stories are just like storeys. Stories have words as the building blocks and storeys have bricks as the building blocks. Storeys are constructed higher and stories are constructed deeper.
– Jackie Jain

Stories..  so we all have them in our minds. Actually we all live in stories with ourselves as the heroes in them. The villian of the story is our brain. We have to keep the activities of that villian, thoughts, in control. Heroin of the story, is our heart. We have set free that chained heart. It is done by controlling our thoughts. Giving them a direction and bringing them back to track of goodness is the theme of the story. This works on the principle of working of laws of attraction. Like attracts like thoughts. Control your thoughts, Set your heart free and be the hero of your story.

We all keep telling stories to others so that they can relate to them or to find a better path for their life. We tell stories inorder to live. Stories never end, they are just repeated with a different hero. Stories, they are the portals which takes us to a new world with our eye as the medium and thoughts as the traveller. We forget where we are and land in a world where words count is the population and story is the world itself. Sitting on the words we travel deeper and deeper into the story and understand its plot. What a wonderful kind of journey it is!!

Stories, they are like a cloud of words. Words which rest in books gets dried and forms clouds in our brain while we read them. When we process those clouds, they burst and meaning of those words keep raining in our brain. We travel in that raindrops to a new different world. Our seeds of thinking grows by this process which helps us in turning us into a better person. Yes, stories.. we all have at least one in our mind. We keep them safe in our thoughts locked in neurons. Unlock them. Our world needs rainfall of words for the growth of thinking capabilities.

Thanks for reading. Have a good time. Time for a wordy rainfall.
