We have a certain view of life imposed upon us by society. Good or bad, we live in and through it. It includes be a nice little boy, obtain high scores in school, work hard to be a winner, find a partner, procreate children, serve society and make this planet a better place. We accept this paradigm or framework as a normal, standard for a healthier, happier individual and collectively for society. We have also narrowed ancient religious teachings to fit with our image of world.
While it serves us to live a normal life with safety, abundance, it misses the most important substance that is awareness, consciousness or meditation. In the words of Indira Gandhi, “You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and vibrantly alive in repose.” We live, yet we are not alive in the midst of activity. We function like automated programmed machines. Hence, we miss the very oxygen of life. It is not an accident to witness all kinds of chaos and disharmony at individual and collective level.
When I use the word ‘meditation’, it doesn’t mean doing mindfulness or TM (Transcendental Meditation) for few minutes in morning and evening. There is a lot more about meditation than what is commonly understood.
Material and spiritual world
We live in a world where there is a division between material and spiritual world. People are either too much indulged in matter or they renounce it to attain spiritual enlightenment. Irony is both ideologies have failed to free a man from his own darkness. They says God has created man in his own image. Truth seems to be contrary. We have created God in our image. God as we depict him is an imagination and projection of weak, inferior man. MORE TEXT SOON. STAY TUNED.
