We must analyze ourselves for the betterment of our kind. The way we have been built to operate; believe you me – the most complex computing system in the universe does not come with any operating manual and even if it did – it is stored in the unconscious cloud storage of humanity. Making it very difficult to retrieve. The entire process of meditation helps resolve the barriers present in the present moment. It makes the effort pay off, for when you gaze the direction inside and simply passively observe – it makes the unconscious come to the fore, the pain and fear, the greed and lust. All of it comes and poof, like a bubble bursting – these vices and attributes of the lower self all disappear. The operating manual comes and keeps the mind aside.
It is of course simple to speak and write while difficult to undergo such catharsis. Why should one, isn’t ignorance bliss? And many of us would agree to remain in such ignorance and normally I would agree, if it were not for the changing course of all things in nature with time. This deep bounding illusion is what makes us vie for enlightenment / nirvana or emancipation within this life. If I look at it with both my eyes closed – I could make sense of such an effort or experience and why the selves of ours required to undergo such movement.
I also see deepening beauty, indescribable and subtly sublime. This is impossible and possibly foolish to try to pen down about life. Life is irreplaceable as an experience and most of us try to end it in a hurry without experiencing it for what we have intended to be born for. Yes it is right, we have taken the choice for taking upon this life and live it to the rights of dharma (not to the fullest – that is succumbing to vice)
In a hurry and what will come out of it? I do not know, there is nothing which you and I are not, and still running helter skelter to make everything our own. This foolish naivety, and arrogant attitude to make everything our own without giving our notions of our selves away (giving up to getting) will cost us, this ignorant hurry for burning the midnight oil of our remaining timelines, it will only end in us dying and lying in back to back graves.
Leaving without even finding out why you were expected, is the saddest of all joys of this creation. What takes for you to know who you are all, of all instances and moods. There it lies, your former self now yourself and then the future self, why such a hurry to settle your dust, it is in the making – becoming unknown making it alive
So leave the concern and need, for anything you thought was important to finish up your joy. Savor and live it slowly and in silence. I trust telling that is the all natural way to heavenly abodes.
Show your love and compassion to each other, live it simple and lovingly. There is no hurry to finish up what perhaps may never come alive.
Peace and Joy
