Is the Universe acting or reacting?

This question have been pondered by many since the beginning of time and even though there are many explanations, we are yet to prove it scientifically. But do we need to prove everything scientifically? If we observe the situation we live in carefully and assess it, we can decide whether our universe is acting or reacting.

Let’s see two different situations and observe the difference between them.
You are walking barefoot on a road and suddenly you step on a thorn, unknowingly. You feel angry for the pain you are going through, but whom do you blame? None, because the source of pain is a non-living thing. You think this is karma. You think this is a reaction.
Now, you are walking on the same road and a cyclist hits you from the back, unknowingly. You feel angry for the pain you are going through, but whom do you blame now? The cyclist, because the source of pain is a living being. You don’t think that this is karma! You think this is an action by the cyclist. Why?

So now tell the difference, why we think one situation is an action and another one is a reaction! Why cannot the latter situation be a reaction too, because of our past actions! Why our mindset is like, if the source of pain is a nonliving thing, then only the situation is a reaction and if source of pain is a living being, we think the situation is an action from that source. Why cannot nature choose a living being as a reaction for our actions which we did in the past!? Think upon it.

The major problem is not whether we take it is as a reaction or not, the problem is that instead of repenting to our past sins we try to avoid the reaction and create a new action in that place. The reaction for this ‘action for a reaction’ will be doubled in future. You may disagree with this, but just look around. We are living in the technologically most advanced era, still so many problems globally. Wars, diseases, increased natural disasters, anxiety, selfishness, anger, poverty, economic collapse situation, stress, depression etc.. This is the reaction for our past deeds on a global level. But what we do we try is create more action thus intensifying the reaction in the future. When in trouble, rather than blaming one another, if we accept and situation and stand together for peace and development with selfless intentions, the reaction will be served and thus will liberate us from our suffering.

We have to give up the false belief that it is an action from the nature, whenver we go through pain from a living being. It is not an action, it is a reaction of our past deeds. Thus we stop making new negative actions and thus our past actions’ account gets fulfilled. Then we start experiencing the good reactions from nature because of our good decisions taken while experiencing the negative reaction from the nature.

Thanks for reading. The example of two different situations given at the beginning is inspired from the book ‘The fault is of the sufferer’ written by Dada Bhagwan. It contains enormous wisdom and all his other books gives us a new perspective on looking at life. Have a great week ahead

Your loving curvature

Your love for me, so pure.
For my heart, the only cure.

I know, everything else around is a lie,
And people still don’t believe it. Sigh!

I live my life by tuning to your frequency,
For me you are the only valuable currency.

You are the truth and I am your soul,
Guide me so that I can fulfill my role.

No one can stop me from protecting your army,
I live in your own strong armour, the body.

What had I brought and what will I take!
At the end, even this armour will also break. 

Why will I fight with others and increase the hatred?
When everything in my own life is limited and dated!

You are the all power, all seeing and eternal.
You are my family, both maternal and paternal.

I will try to make you happy and proud, oh my nature!
Because in my eyes, I can see your loving curvature!

Save the nature. Because the feel we have in nature, can never be felt in our artificial and virtual lives. Nature is our protector from the heat and radiation. Now it’s to protect it from our own actions against it.

Thanks for reading. Have a beautiful and natural day.

I don’t know but for some reason my comments on other blogs are not showing up. They are getting into spam folder. Hope it gets resolved soon. Thanks for the support. Stay blessed. 🙂 

B is for Balance: Day-2

“Balancing is not just the act of weighing or measuring things to bring them to a equilibrium, it is an act of valuing and justifying things to bring out happiness from them.”

Have you ever thought on balancing? I mean not about balancing a pencil on your nose, or a stick on your hand or an apple on your head. I am talking about life. Balancing our life. It is known that just because there is perfect balance among nature, elements, gravity and climate on our Earth, we are able to live on this. Life is all about the balance. Equilibrium.

Balancing life is just not balancing two different entities or things. Balancing life is a multi-balance technique which requires determination and effort from the person who is at the balancing hot-seat. There are many entities which we have to balance and all at once. Never easy. Balancing life is not as simple as balancing a balance sheet as in Accounts or balancing equations as in chemistry. Chemistry is tough, isn’t it? Balancing life is more complex. We have to balance things in our life just by guessing their weights. It is like balancing a stick in your hands by walking not on a rope, but on an ocean decorated with stones resting on it in a zigzag manner. Each stone stands for the entity you have to balance and if you fail to balance, you will go with the flow and drown. It is difficult to weigh things with our eyes.

That’s the reason why most of the people are unsatisfied with their lives. We guess weights of entities just by seeing their appearances rather than their nature. We balance the things with wrong weights and it disturbs the balance of our life and makes us stressful and frustrated. We hate entities for that reason and blame them saying it is unlucky for me, it ruined my life, life is not satisfying, life is monotonous. In one line, the root of all these things is that there is no balance in our life. You may have balanced the entities correctly but with their weights which you have assumed were wrong. That’s why there was no balance. So there is no way we can balance these entities?

Or is there an another way out? So what if we can’t weight the elements in our life to balance them, at least we can know their values in our life. We can value entities by our heart, which have room for 4 weighing pans. Heart measures values not weights. Balance them. Values may or may not be numerical. They are varying in nature. For example, Mr. X got 90, 80, 70, 60 in Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Sanskrit respectively. (No, not my marks). Just because he got higher marks in maths should he concentrate much on Maths? Or rather he should concentrate on Sanskrit? See, here we make a mistake. We try to make the most of what we have in higher value ignoring the things with lower values. Thus we disturb the balance.

Now you may say marks are values then how to get values of entities? Ask your heart. It is the balancing machine. It perfectly knows what you have in excess and what you lack. But it will never tell you. You should seek for it. Do what your tells you to do. We all know what we are strong at and weak at. We just don’t wanna show. But improve in veil. You don’t have to prove anyone. Get stronger. Get better. Live life large scale. But careful to balance what you do. Balance is the key for satisfaction. Balance your activities in order to meet your living style. Physically, mentally, socially, emotionally, morally and spiritually balance your life perfectly. Keep up to the things in which you are strong and improve on the things which you lack but need them the most. Balance the equation. Grab the satisfaction.

Keep a goal in mind, save yourself from drowning

Gravity plays an important in keeping us grounded on earth, similarly goals and responsibilities are important in keeping us safe and grounded from the wind of moments and flying time.

Quote #1 :

Just like you need a pole or a wooden log to keep yourself safe from drowning in the waves of water, you need a goal or a purpose of life to keep yourself safe from flowing with the tides of time and moments flowing with an enormous speed. If you take responsibilities as weight you will drown in depths of darkness in life and if you take them so lightly, you will fly with winds of time.

Just like the Universe is travelling in space, Earth is travelling in Universe and we are travelling on Earth, similarly Time is also travelling with moments. Keeping all these things in mind, we can only say that life is for travelling. Even our thoughts are travelling in our mind. Don’t let your thoughts fly with time. Everything is travelling with respect to something. Let it happen that way.

Keep a goal in mind. Direct your thoughts towards that goal. Your passion will develop a path in between you and your goal. Time will re-direct itself to let you reach your target in time. Earth will help time to keep it the orbit of your target. The universe will hold the Earth in place, to let you hold the target in your hands.

Quote #2:

If you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you achieve it.

The hidden light to our open eyes

Things can be seen clearly only when light falls on them or else only when they start shining in darkness.

When do you feel more powerful? When do you want yourself to be more powerful? In happy times or the dark times? In happy times, you are not that powerful when compared to your dark times. When you are in a mood of happiness, you don’t try to improve yourself. You think you have everything in your control. But when the clouds of dark times start roaming on your head, you sense the danger and your happiness dries up. 

You start thinking about how to face that danger and overcome it. Only in dark times you come to know how strong you are from within. Dark times come to make you strong. In happier times, you feel everything is going right and you don’t have any thing to worry about. In dark times your mind gets a new project. To overcome that darkness. Your job is to remove that darkness or start shining from inside. You tend to see everything with a dark shade in dark times. When light in you is missing, you tend to see things with less intensity. Everything looks as messed up.

In that time, remember one thing, this darkness is not for you. This darkness is for others. You are in a veil. Miracles happen in darkness. This a veil for others to keep them away from you. So that they can’t see you growing. You will grow in this darkness. You will be stronger. Not completely, but to some extent.

The growth of things in darkness is not a new concept. It is one of those concepts which exist from day one of this Universe. Our creator has written the great lessons of life and placed them in nature. Sun, moon, seasons, trees, mountains, oxygen all teach us a specific lesson which we can understand only with our closed eyes. Sun, which shines throughout the day, always brightens up the world. We can see things the way they look as there is light upon the things. But there is no specific growth in this stage of day. This is the times of happiness.

When the night falls, when the light disappears, then its the real challenge. Everything disappears, there is no light from the sky. And there is no light within. This is how the dark times of our life are. But gaining energy from Sun, the moon started glowing from inside. Day by day, it started receiving more light from sun, and night by night it started glowing brighter and became more stronger. In dark times, your creativity finds a way to come out and shine. This is what should we do. Find the light within. Start shining in the darkness. Fill your soul with light or else start shining in darkness. We can receive light from others, but making it useful during the dark times depends on us.

Thanks for reading.

Levitate your soul

To complain about this abstruse perplexing life, is like complicating it further by our baseless assumptions. Trying to find the purpose of this life seems more meaningful and way simpler. Devoid of light, we wander in this colorful darkness, with these black and white eyes. We are going oblique from the reason for which we are sent here. The animosity in us to succeed further of our fellow-wanderers have made us completely inhuman.

We lack the mental acumen in seeking the purpose of this life.   Life which is a blessing is turning into a curse and even worse. We will live only once, even if our soul gets another life we will never know it. So what’s the use of success without purpose? We are in dire need to foster our humanity lying deeper in us, which is overshadowed by our ignorance and this layered skin searching for identity. We are all just broken pieces of a complete soul. Complete universe.

We are not sent here to make an identity, we are here to identify. The good and the bad. We should lay a path for the coming generations to decide wisely the petty difference between the right and the wrong. A path of being witty. The Vedas and shlokas, all are laid on one foundation. To be able to decide what is good and what is bad, and not only that, but also following the right path. Following a right path is not a choice, it should be the only option.

How long we will cheat the affable atmosphere? How long we will spend our lives captured in these forlorn emotions and ghastly thoughts? How long we will commit the same banal mistake of taking everthing for granted? It is time to be fastidious to the warning of the acrimonious natural environment.

Ever tried to juxtapose between happiness and sadness? The result yielded is shocking! Both happiness and sadness are equal by their properties and characteristics. The difference is just how we feel them. The proof to the adage that “Human-beings are the most dexterous race of all beings” is still due. Let’s prove it.

Tomorrow is August First. Let’s take a decision. Decision to efface all the negative thoughts and troubles from our mind, and work towards levitating our soul. Yes, Levitate your soul.
