Think this for once..

Sometimes I’m really very curious. Different things keep popping up in my mind and troubles me like hell! what happens after the life ends? Are you actually dead then, or your soul is alive in some other interface??? what if there is no God! and if there is a God, he is none but some alien who is more powerful and controlling humans! When I saw “The Matrix”, I was completely overwhelmed! It gave such an interesting idea which you never know might be true!

If you are a human, rational questions related to your existence keeps coming your way and you kill that question with one argument and then suddenly come up with some other argument killing your last point! Its a very exciting game to play!

Many times I feel that Someone from a superior dimension is playing a super cool (and advanced for obvious reason!) game which is a sort of the game we play on earth like Age OF Empires. We are nothing but the characters of that game and acting just like the farmers of AOE acts! But what if the game is interrupted and he stops playing the game! scary! no?

There is one more theory which comes from the Hindu mythology which says that there is a Super Being which is sleeping and whatever is happening now is nothing but his dream. We are the characters playing in his dream! Don’t tell me what happens if some day he wakes up!

Or may be the Universe is inside the brain of some person, because if you ll see the structure of a brain from inside, it resembles too much like an universe!

There are many more interesting, exciting, scary and super cool theories but as you know they are just some theories which have not been proved and can never be. I don’t think that human would any day advance to a level where it would have all the answers (Being realistic not pessimistic!)

Don’t Escape

You see, motivation is very much needed to continue and grow. You just cannot forever write something, knowing the fact that no one z actually gonna read it. Someone as impatient as me gets bored and demotivated very easily. Today I’m so eager to pen down something and tomorrow I wont actually give a damn! This attitude hasn’t helped anyone and it wont help me either. I know if I’ll get demoralized this soon, I’m never going to get any success (anywhere)! I was reading somewhere, that you have to be constant,efficient as well as very patient if you are seriously willing to have your aim achieved.

Just because you weren’t able to survive a wave which was not very kind to you doesn’t mean that you have to surrender, instead you can make yourself efficient enough to face the other waves coming your way, because problems like waves ll keep coming and no one can actually stop them from coming, however you can make yourself get ready for the problems. Rise and fight against all the obstacles coming your way, even if u loose, you wouldn’t have anything to regret, but surrendering down will leave you with the regrets of not trying!

Writing/Reading/Saying/Listening/Seeing something inspirational is very very easy but Applying is so damn tough! Though am writing this by myself, I don’t know if I would actually be able to apply on these principles even for a day! I think this happens with everyone, when you are so good at rendering ideas and passing smart views/opinions to others, but when it comes to you, you are nothing but the same demotivated person to whom you just gave the mantra of life.Once an Indian superstar Shahrukh Khan said, ‘Don’t become a philosopher before you become rich(or successful)!’

Hats off to all those person who might not have seen an inspirational movie or read an article full of motivations but were able enough to surpass their pettiness, and rose very high, irrespective of what came their way.

Read it somewhere –  Don’t be afraid to start over. Its a brand new opportunity to rebuild what you truly want.

Isn’t this the biggest irony of the world, that the fools have the extra level of confidence, and the one with the intellect mind have a comfort zone limited to their cell!  Anyways Its never ruined, if you are willing to start today!

Also never forget what Swami Vivekanand said, ” Arise,awake, and stop not till the goal is reached!”

Understanding Shiva

Part I – Shiva Philosophy :

Whenever a common man imagines Shiva, he think of a man (who have a blue throat) with his weapon Trishul (Trident) who must be living at a place called Kailash. Often we forget that the modern image of trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) has already been very polluted and all we do is generalise our God (spcially SHIVA!), we have become so used to these calendar images that no one actually is aware of the full science behind them.

The name Shiva itself means  ‘Nothing’. Shiva is the one who is nothing, he comes from nowhere and goes nowhere, may be the vacuum is Shiva. Shiva has a deep science in to it (or him). Shiva is dark and mysterious and he is very fancy! He is the superhero of all the GODs out there, he is the supreme being and yet out of anybody’s reach. No one in this universe can meet Shiva. You cannot meet it (or him)  but can attain it! Shiva is a state of being. Me, you and everyone out the there is a short of Shiva (millionth part of a point percentage). Every second we are moving forward and becoming a more of the Shiva being. The day you gets to 100 percent, you attain Shiva and becomes him!

The philosophy behind Shiva is very vast, complex and diverse. Everybody has their own idea of Shiva and thus can never be really confined. What does matter is your perception of looking into it. Shiva is “The destroyer” and is complementary to the Brahma “The Creator”. It doesn’t mean that you have to get scared of him. The one who comes must has to go and that is why Shiva destroys to welcome new.

Shiva has always been recognized as the “Adiyogi” i.e, The 1st yogi. He/It is the from of meditation, always still and nothing. Shiva never really took a birth, when you was not there (he always was), when you ll be gone (he always ll be) because he is Shiva!

 Part II – Material Shiva :

Shiva is the coolest GOD, you will ever get to know! He travels, smokes weed, has all the powers, attached to nothing and yet loves everybody. He is someone with an innocence as child, Out of all the Hindu Gods, it is easiest to make Shiva happy! If you ll go a thousand years back , you ll be looking at the temples all denoted to Shiva, It was very recent that we started having the temples of other Gods, (the purpose is not the compare but to state the history).

Part III – Shiva and Shakti :

images

SHIVA symbolises consciousness, the masculine principle.
SHAKTI symbolises the feminine principle, the activating power and energy.

Whenever a power becomes active, and wherever energy exists, Shakti is working. Other terms for these primal principles are PURUSHA and PRAKRITI; Purusha is consciousness and Prakriti is nature.

Shiva and Shakti are manifestations of the all-in-one divine consciousness – different sides of the same coin. In many pictures these two primal powers are each depicted as being one half of the same image; one side female and one side male. The left side is the Divine Mother, Pārvatī, the “feminine” energy, and the right side represents Shiva, the “masculine” consciousness.

Only when Shiva and Shakti combine can action, movement and creation arise. Until energy is impregnated with consciousness it is ignorant, disordered, aimless and “blind”. Energy alone can produce nothing; consciousness bestows upon it content, form and direction. Conversely, consciousness without energy is dormant power, sleeping energy, and on its own is unable to be the cause of anything. Just as Prakriti without Purusha is unable to act, and vice versa, Purusha without Prakriti is also incapable of creating anything.

  • Shakti is the motherly love of God that surrounds us with warmth, caring and protection.
  • Shiva is the paternal love of God that gives us consciousness, clarity and knowledge.

Part IV – Shiva Quotes :

“Fire is His head, the sun and moon His eyes, space His ears, the Vedas His speech, the wind His breath, the universe His heart. From His feet the Earth has originated. Verily, He is the inner self of all beings.”   ― Anonymous, The Upanishads

“When Shiva beats his DAMRU- Evil Shakes !! while the Wise Awakes!”

“Only when you go beyond Mind, will you be able to respect the energy that inhabits us; until then you will either exploit others with your energy or will deplete your energy, leading a purposeless life!”  ― Ramana Pemmaraju

This is the gist of all worship: to be pure and to do good to others. He who sees Shiva in the poor, in the weak, and in the diseased, really worships Shiva. And if he sees Shiva only in the image, his worship is but preliminary. He who has served and helped one poor man seeing Shiva in him, without thinking of his caste or creed or race or anything, with him Shiva is more pleased than with the man who sees Him only in temples  -Swami Vivekananda

Part V – The ultimate Mantra :

ॐ नमः शिवाय (Om namah Shivayya)
