How would you define morality? Can there be a set of moral values common to all? Sure! Because what is wrong cannot be right but who defines what is right and moral? Today, anyone can do anything and get away with it. Mostly! Where are the values that prevent people from venturing into the space of others so easily and without remorse or guilt? We want. We take. No looking left or right. This cannot really go on forever. Something has to give and once more, some semblance of decency that befits Indian culture must return to stay.

Work is worship popular saying and truly a very pertinent slogan for us all. The opposite side of the coin that says, an idle mind is a devil’s workshop.

Constructive work keeps the health and happiness quotient on a consistent level. It’s been my experience. It is a way of giving back to yourself what you know to be your core as a part of divine energy. What you think you are giving outside is actually what you are returning to yourself.

It is important to train yourself to understand that YOUR life and your spiritual health is THE single most important thing or at least, should be, for you. You have to and must keep your focus on your well being and this should certainly not depend on someone else whoever it may be.

If you notice, the moment you stop taking the words or actions of others seriously and stop applying them to yourself, you begin to feel your energies lightening. Many must have experienced this. The heaviness leaves you. You can think more clearly and resume your own activities with a new vigor.

There is much to be said about taking things with a big pinch of salt.

From small excuses to big lies is a journey in darkness with many pitfalls and no one to light a candle. Everyone makes excuses once in a while. The danger is when these excuses become frequent and become lies because the formula works each time!

But the difference between lies and truth is a big one. Truth is clear and you live by it. Lies however, need a hiding place. Truth is never “found out”. Lies ARE Truth, even if harsh, is respected. Lies are not.

So, we must bring in more awareness into ourselves and try and clean up our act, our habits which don’t really serve us in the long run, and may ruin our relationships as well.

The heart gets weary for sure, trying to understand people, their actions, situations, in fact, everything but oneself. Until one day, you don’t want to understand anything anymore. After all, all the whys can take you on the merry go round until vertigo strikes you. And by the time you feel you have understood somewhat, things change again.

The futility of understanding! Rocks your world knocks you down and you gain little! And suffer a lot! Yes, the heart does get very weary. That’s probably why people just live on the surface.

Divine energy


Prayer opens up our blockages with the vibrations of the chanting. Repetitions are required to put us into a state almost like hypnosis so that deep cleansing can happen. Karma can be washed away by the tide of feelings that prayer inspires. For a few seconds, we become connected to the Divine energy and the feeling of bliss. It is the most joyous, the most momentous experience.

Justice


Justice has always intrigued me. In many cases, there are layers and layers of human emotions that compound the process of justice.

At the end of the day, any injustice done to anyone else has to be a mental aberration of some kind or an unmanageable emotion, like anger, jealousy, frustration ….or simply an innocent act gone wrong.

Everything ultimately boils down to the fact that we have little option but to understand the people around us. How they think. What they feel. And why they do what they do. A deed is done and cannot be undone. The justice tag is in the eyes of the beholder, like beauty. Because the wrong, the injustice, is only a perception which need not be perceived as such by the person on whose action the judgment is being made.

This way of thinking is a most liberating one. Unless you see a matter of life and death happening. Justice holds an important place in such eventualities. No question of sitting back and smelling the coffee here because we have a sense of duty and responsibility towards us and society.
