Freedom - A Deeper Understanding

Last Updated: Jan 14th, 09
Instance 1. Once I did something, something very special, I was very happy and wished to remain like this forever. And Now, enters a friend of mine, telling me that I couldn't make into JEE, and this one sentence from his mouth, vanished all of my happiness. Whyyyyyyy. But I wanted to be happy.

You see, somebody else is able to ruin my mental state, when I don't want it. Isn't it called slavery when somebody else is controlling me and I'm not able to do what I want.

Instance 2. One day I was very angry and going to argue with one of my colleague, because he complained to my boss about me. On the way, a person, unknown, came to me and appreciated me for the way I presented my ideas and views about something in front of an assembly yesterday. He said it was very effective and impressive, I thanked him like a gentleman and he left. My chest swelled with pride because I prepared for it a lot. But then, when I faced my colleague, I did not want to do any argument and felt good about him that he made me realize my mistake. What. But I went there to argue with him.

Hay, some unknown person had a hold over my mind more than I do, he changed my mind. And again I felt that I'm not free to do what I want , I don't have freedom, do I?

Instance 3. I love to roam around in my favorite half sleeve blue colored t-shirt, without any other wearing over or underneath it, but in winters, I just can't do it. Weather is stopping me from doing that. Can't I have enough resistance in my body for that bloody cold. Weather is controlling my dreams, and I'm not, right?

Instance 4. I don't want to eat more pizzas because it hurts my health so seriously, but I'm tempted to have one more, because I'm standing in front of a McDonald. Similarly, I want to go for morning walk because my doctor suggested me that it would be beneficial for my current health status, but I just can't get-off from my bed early in the morning. Who is forcing me to do what I don't want to, and the other way, stopping me from doing what I want to? Am I free to do what I think I should?

Instance 5.

Instance 6.
Instance 7.

Are there any more such situations with you? Think about it...

I'm trying to be free, are you??

Diseases - Why?

Last Updated: Dec 15th, 08
आग लगने के लिए बस एक चिंगारी की जरुरत है, पर आग वहीं लगती है जहाँ भूसां भरा होता है |

Are we afraid of being drenched in the rain, when sky pours it freshness in the form of lucid drops somewhere in the middle of November, if yes, think why, most of the time we all keep on collecting a lots of dirt in our body (probably by malicious but tasty food, irregularities in lifestyle ...) but we are never bothered to cleanse it, and now when weather changes, this explodes in the form of common diseases (a.k.a. cold, sneezing ...). Think once, from where all that dirt will come out of your body because your regular draining system is not enough.

Think about it.

Death - What may it mean to us?

One Question
Why do we have skills? Definitely we've learned them somewhere sometime, but when? I don't know, even I've never been exposed to such context. Then how is it that I don't need to put any effort for some sort of work, but others do? How can I do it so easily as I've been trained for it? Is God being partial or he has some kind of random mechanism to grant these?

My Analogy to Life
And that comes from our previous lives, which I call as "पिछले जन्मो का पुण्य (Results of your last lives)". We did something significant in our previous lives, although we don't remember it, but it is always with us.

Life is like a chapter of some book, we've started somewhere heading towards somewhere else, each chapter makes a little progress towards its destination. Any chapter doesn't make any sense to the journey without its preceding ones followed by next ones. But the chapter gives something on its own, it has got some meaning and it has its own importance, but is it all? No. it must be seen as a whole book rather than a single chapter. When we're reading this chapter we don't know where it's heading towards, but we make a best guess from the current knowledge (gained from previous and current chapters) and move ahead to next one and as we move ahead we get clearer and clearer about the destination (but I don't think that's important because we never know it for sure, caution: it can mislead us if we'll assume it incorrectly, so better don't do).

A bit of Explanation
This is the way, I think, life is. When we die, don't think its all over, this is just end of one chapter, we should have something to move with, to the next life. Are we really moving towards the final destination (weather we know it or not, as said above), are we really making the best move or we've stuck in (individual chapters) current life only? Keep the big goal in mind.

However, it's not expected to ignore the present, in the view of the final destination, because you never know it, what you do is just a wise guess. If something is in front of you, think why, that means it is to be done by you (if you encounter a very vague paragraph in the running text of chapter, no matter how irrelevant it looks to you, but it is here because it has something to do with the book, may be you'll realize it somewhat later, but think, can you ignore it?), and the better you do it, the better is your move.

In my view, the best policy of life is to keep moving ahead, finish whatever you encounter on the way, with the best of you, meanwhile you'll get the knowledge and experience which will help you ahead, no need to think what is next to come. If you're doing good with the present you're on the right way, even if you don't realize it. And think logically, even if you get to know what is next, what can you do is just, best of now.

Keep acquiring knowledge and skills, which will automatically come, if you're doing your job honestly. The more we earn today the longer we'll leap tomorrow. But what is important is that we should remember that this life is not a dead end, it continues far after that, so don't think of quick results and this is what वैराग्य (विगतो रागों विषयेषु यस्मात् स विरागः, विरागस्य भावौ वैराग्यम , i.e. do not associate thing with you, you are just a care taker) tells us. But be cautious, this doesn't mean that you are not allowed to do certain things, do whatever you think needs to be done but keep the bigger picture in mind (the notion in this line needs a lot of experience and wisdom to decide, but still, it doesn't matter at all, what you can do, is just, best of you, and that is perfectly all right, provided you are being honest).

One more thing
We all have not started from the same place at the same time and also we don't put same efforts, so some of us are ahead and some are behind, and that's why we all are at different positions having different skills of different levels and enjoying varying degrees of lucks.

So keep going to next chapters with little progress in each one. Acquire more and more in this life so that you don't complain in the next one, in fact if you do, it was all your fault, so correct it. Remember that everything you earn doesn't go with you पर कुछ तो है जो साथ जाता है, so identify them and focus on them.

Death is just a refreshing stay in the journey, you get one, you start fresh.

Whatever is written above is certainly not created by me, it is all there, always. But probably I've realized it. People say these all the time, but we don't realize its meaning, I tried. Take any saying popular among us, think on it and you'll get to know. For example we all know झूंठ बोलना पाप है, but do we REALLY "know" it?

Think about it.

Everything Converges

Everything is one, everything settle down to everything. Its only our view/perspective that makes an illusion that things are different.

As said in Vedas "यथा पिंडे तथा ब्रम्हाण्डे ||", that means, if you know one single physical element completely then you know everything about this universe, its properties and behavior.

To make things easy to understand, we break it down into small different components, in the process, if we forget the connection of it to the integration - we are making things rather difficult.
We've divided lots of things in our life/world, but now think - from where they've come, try to realize the connection and consequently you'll realize that all is one - everything converges. Suppose you've broken things to accomplish a huge task conveniently and you forget to integrate them, what will you end up with?

Think about it.

Now try to answer some simple questions:
  • Can you see Coding, Web, Yoga, painting, writing and other things as your lifestyle? Is there something that connects all these together?
  • What are you living for, what is the ultimate goal of life and how different parts of your lifestyle contribute to that?
  • Is money just a component of something big or is it a complete ultimate goal in itself? Only money will lead you where?
  • Why education (firstly what is education)?
  • There are much more you may want to figure out from your own life...

Revise, Refine n Redefine

As said, Nothing is Perfect and Time is Changing Every time, is applied to us also, so shouldn't we revise our souls and minds and refine the way we think, our attitude and our own principles that we've made to live our lives smoothly.

And I think that we should do it as frequently as we can, take the benefit of every opportunity where we realize that something is going wrong, lets redefine our values to fit the best in today's context.
