Present is Present

Caution:I do not know what is to live in present. I just want to express my thoughts to support the views of enlightened being of living in 'present'. It is only a possibility, not a certainty.

All living things have one common thing. Birth and death ,our initial and final state, between it there is process which we call life. Life is process of change, a change to welcome the death, the ultimate state. If there is something certain in life that is death. Time creates illusion. We can live only in present. So only present is reality. Past and future do not exist. But most of our actions are motivated by past and inspired by future. We forget present. The remembrance of past and dream of future clouds the present. Therefore we live life virtually. Perhaps this may be reason why gurdijeff says that people lives their whole life in sleep. But it is not easy either to be live in present and perhaps one who learns is known as enlightened. A fictitious happiness cannot content us and…

UTSAVA

My belief has wandered from Asharam Bapu to osho, retreating many places like Gaytri parivar and ISKCON. I feel fortunate to have experience of all and when someone is catering just in 500 rs why should I not increase the quantity of my experience.

I was welcome with a tilak on my head and entered one of the 4 zone classified for equal distribution of crowd. One young person, clad…

Our Shadows

Every day is new day. A new day to follow your dreams, a new day to take resolution, a commitment to be happy. Whatever will happen to me, nothing will tear my happiness. This should be an attitude towards our life. No one can snatch your happiness from you because this is nature of your being. But how you are going to remember this. For this prayer are devised, meditation is developed, to be prepare for the day, to conquer the obstacles and difficulties of the life. There is a story. Once there was a crow. He was very hungry. But there was nothing to eat. Just few meters away there was a river. When his every trick failed to get food he thought why I should not catch a fish? He flew above the river, looked deep into the water. As he was about to hunt a fish, he saw his own shadow and thought that someone is coming to fight. He gets frightened and trembled and fell in the river. This is what happens to us. We are so equipped with inner – fight that we forget our goal, our dreams. In r…
