Ultimately Basic Survival Skills and Contentment are the true Assets in our lives! Rest all are inferior!


Once there was a great meeting of Staunch Democratic Leaders from all over the world at a Central Place.  They were the representatives from countries where the best possible democratic principles were upheld by the respective Rulers.  After the deliberations, on the evening of closing day, a get-together was arranged for all the representatives.

The rep from a highly developed country declared with a pride, “Our Rulers respect democratic principles to the core with full freedom of expression around and we have secured with us everything required in life!  All issues of people are well taken care and addressed to the point.  As citizens we enjoy the maximum freedom and get all the support from our Rulers….”

The man from the developing country having heard this, paused a while and then with a smile said to the rep, “My dear! I agree that you have the best and your Ruling Administration comes to your rescue at a call to help out in your difficulties. But have you forgotten that in the process, you have lost your skills of being vigilant and protecting yourself from the unseen attacks which can be both from outside as well as from inside? I, no doubt agree that your system around you works the best and that way your life may be with all ease, but our people have more the original capability of protecting themselves from the attacks both external and internal as they are forced to live their lives in that way. Here, Mother Nature optimizes the support on earth and provides that only for those who are really in need.  So we have this asset with us which may be missing to some extent in your countrymen.  Also, along with this, since our ruling is never perfect, our people have developed lots of mental adjustment and feel quite happy even with the little gains that come to them. Ultimately more of basic survival skills are our assets and Contentment and Peace are our Gifts from the Almighty!”

The Spiritual Path in front of us….


“Reverend Sir! I am very busy with my daily works and usually do not find time for other activities in my life. And all Philosophical Preachings always say that one should not stop these ordained duties even a moment and further be doing them with all zeal. Please tell me, in this scenario where is the time for me to Practice Spiritual Discipline in my life as envisaged by the Great Personalities?  Please clarify to me on this doubt and guide me further….”

“My dear!  Spirituality is not any distinct entity from a normal life that one leads on the earth. In fact, a dedicated effort towards one’s own responsibilities is a Spiritual Discipline.  Meaning, it is not what life an individual leads but the quality of his/her life here that matters, the works remaining the same.

An individual is an embodiment of actions due to the past and discharge of his/her responsibilities through these actions alone is the way to maintain the balance in life. And this must go on eternally till the time the actions naturally fall off from him/her with the dawn of The Supreme Knowledge through Grace of God! 
 Till then there is no go for one but to continue doing the destined actions….

What the Spiritual Practices all the time emphasize is doing these actions with more attention and lesser emotions because attention is superior to emotions even though we as mortals are never free from them. Thus, the true path to be followed is to exercise a discipline of greater attention with lesser emotions in all our actions in a natural way. The Peace, which prevails all along alone shows a way to be more and more attentive in life!   It is truly a contagious and cumulative phenomenon in an individual whereby he/she moves towards Refinement. That’s all what the Spiritual Practices in the world mean and nothing else!”

Living for the Day....


“Master, what is the exact meaning of 'Live for the day'?”

“My dear!  We all have to live for the day as the future truly is unknown. This is the most important aspect in life. But many times, the meaning of this is wrongly understood. The enjoyment force in us misguides here and encourages living for the day on the lines of thinking, “Enjoy today; forget tomorrow.” One with all discipline has to check this entity in him/her, look at a realistic living feasible in his arena, plan for that and start living for the day.... 


Thus, a day for such an individual mainly consists of doing the works for an earning and discharging the responsibilities around, spending a good time on health and safety upkeep, saving reasonable finances for the coming days, relaxing in the way one wishes for the rest of the time finally closing the day with a Prayer to the Almighty to protect the self from the invading forces outside and devastating trends within…. And repeating this discipline the next day, day after and so on and on; that’s all!  This is just living for the day and nothing else for an ordinary personality with all his/her limitations by the side!”

The only Way for a corrupt free Democracy!


Around the world, all Democratic Systems are plagued by two specific characteristics of a few individuals in every System Viz., extreme possessive quality and a strong desire to dominate people! These two, the so called evils in all societies mar the prospects of the upcoming democracies in the world.  When thus, these qualities exceed a limit in an individual, such a person will by all means be after the only way to express them i.e., through grabbing the unlimited power!  This is where, in spite of having all round checks by others, a Ruler in Democracy freely goes ahead to rule in his/her own way but behind the doors….Meaning, having firmly secured the reins, the Ruler rules through the two well known weaknesses of certain selfish individuals with him/her. These two weaknesses of a man are getting lured through offer of additional goods and services or being afraid of a threat of withdrawal of support of men and material with him/her!

In such a scenario, the personalities alone become the most important entities of either the Ruler or of those backing the Ruler in a closer circle. i.e., a personality where an individual is not interested in the possessions or power except in a living based on hard work and honesty.  Such a personality in the individuals alone can keep up the sanctity of a corruption free Democracy whether it lies in the individuals of the Ruling System or of an Agency or a Commission set up to go into the allegations made against the Ruler.

The Spirit of Enquiry!


Continuation.... 

All along, behind the activities of all Learnings around, God’s Smile is there through a discrete message, “That’s the same way I teach all my children on the Earth….Making them search and find out the Truth on their own!  And I am for ever with them in this effort!  They struggle, achieve a certain distinct entity, see it as nothing and get into further search….Thus, when a dedicated search is established in oneself, that alone starts revealing many wonders, but the task must go on!  And in between when they get off from this and go for a while into mundane activities, I wait patiently for them to return and get back on to the Eternal Search ….

Ultimately this Search alone leads to finding the Reality in True Form!  And that is the true purpose of one’s life on earth while rest all findings are always inferior!”

….Concluded!
