Spirituality in Life....
“Master! Can you tell us the role of Spirituality in one’s life?”
“My dear! Spirituality is part of our living. This living can be compared to a stage drama enacted with colorful curtains as backdrop. When the ignorance is deep in an individual, the curtains behind the stage of action are totally opaque and the individual solely concentrates on the drama enacted on the stage identifying himself / herself in the roles and accordingly expressing out his / her emotions….
When the ignorance lessens in an individual for reasons unknown, the back ground curtains become transparent and he / she simultaneously sees through them too along with the drama enacted and feels for a while that it is only a drama as the back ground scenery would be revealing partly the Reality. Still his / her mind would be interested in identifying with the stage drama but in a lighter way not giving importance to the minute details and accordingly the individual would be expressing out the emotions….
As the person gets elevated in life which happens purely because of the Divine Grace, the interest in drama reduces far more and more attention shifts to the Reality behind. Thus calmness returns to the mind instantly and own personal opinions carry lesser and lesser importance….
Thus one awaits eternally for the total ignorance to vanish with the drawn of Truth, which is the Ultimate purpose of life in this Universe!
The ability of an individual to differentiate the drama from the Reality seen beyond the stage of action is the Spiritual Attitude in his / her life and every one to some extent is definitely gifted with this ability….Thus we can say that all are Spiritual in their lives …. Only the levels vary and to that extent the pleasures and pains of life continue!”
