Words of wisdom : it is perfect when our consciousness realizes all things as spiritually one – Tagore

April 5, 2007

According to the true Indian view, our consciousness of the world, merely as the sum total of things that exist, and as governed by laws, is imperfect. But it is perfect when our consciousness realizes all things as spiritually one with it, and therefore capable of giving us joy. For us the highest purpose of this world is not merely living in it, knowing it and making use of it, but realizing our own selves in it through expansion of sympathy; not alienating ourselves from it and dominating it, but comprehending and uniting it with ourselves in perfect union.~  Guru Dev Ravindra Nath Tagore ~

Pi-Day Reflections on Einstein and Vedanta

April 5, 2007

By Rajiv Bhole

Einstein’s birthday on Pi-Day 3.14, that is, March 14, is truly a cosmic event. Pi is the ratio that is integral to a circle, and Einstein is synonymous to the law of relativity or e=mc2 . Both the circle and the law of relativity are closely linked to ancient rishis and their wisdom for liberation. The rishis were dedicated people experimenting in various ways to understand the law and attain liberation.

A circle symbolises anything that is periodic or cyclic, as in the circle of birth and death. The law of relativity or e=mc2 is a mathematical way of saying that energy e is proportionate to the mass m with the square of the velocity of light c2 as a constant.

Alvares won the Nobel prize for creating a bubble chamber at the University of Berkeley and showing us that mass is constantly being converted to energy and back again 1,023 or c2 times every second, thus physically validating Einstein’s law of relativity. This is Truth at the subtlest level in all physical compounded matter.

The Buddha arrived at the same Truth.He says in the Tipitika that we are made up of tiny particles or kalapas. There being 43,000 such particles in a dust particle under the chariot wheel.In the blink of an eye trillions upon trillions of these kalapas arise and pass away. It was this Truth or law that the rishis and sages of ancient India were trying to discover, so that by following it they would reach their goal, get liberated and be supremely happy.

At the gross level they found that “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. This was the law of karma. We are born rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy because of our actions in previous rounds of birth and death. If we perform wholesome actions we are rewarded; if not, we’re punished, so to speak.

Since we all carry the conditioning or seeds of our past karmas, the rishis started experimenting on how to eradicate them. The body and mind was their laboratory and tool. Diligently sharpening their mind with meditation and searching within their own body they discovered that the root of all our actions lay in our own body. They found that the outer world becomes a reality for us only when it comes in contact with our sense doors. Then in our body starts a flow of aasavas or biochemical flow which produces pleasant or unpleasant sensations all over the body. Being unaware (moha) of them we react with craving (lobha) or aversion (dwesha) to these sensations. This reaction increases the biochemical flow, thus increasing the intensity of our feelings and sensations and causing us to react. Having identified the root of human action, rishi-munis observed sensations without reacting to them with craving or aversion and found themselves getting liberated from seeds of past actions and started feeling subtler sensations till they could feel a free flow of sensations from head to toe.

This was the dharmganga that we have to take a dip in to get liberated. When we eradicate all our past karmas we experience e=mc2 in our body and experience the amrit, deathless state of nirvana where nothing arises or dies.

This science of liberation of ancient
India is called Vipassana available to us even today. May all beings be Happy.

Development, Recognition, Measurement and signposts of a creative mind

April 5, 2007

By Anup Vishnu Bagla   

We shall treat this discussion under three heads by dividing into 3 categories: 

·         Identifying the qualities of creative mind.

·         Devising a method of measuring the index of creativity.

·         Developing/devising a method/model/technique for it’s further rise i.e., the index of the creativity/capability (essentially removing inaccurate, wrong and erroneous thinking).

First, we shall discuss what are the indications, traits of

creative mind behavior; it’s signs, identifying symptoms etc. in

this first part. Generally creative behavior traits are thought of

as:  

 ·         Fluency

·         Flexibility

·         Originality

·         Elaboration

These are broad classification.

Some of the mental tendencies of a bright creative mind are:

High level of effective intelligence, applied intelligent imagination and openness to experience.Very high sensitivity to feel, know, gauge and grasp human situations, energies in the neighborhood/atmosphere. The thought as energy wave is received, perceived, as it is, instantly as agreeable or unagreeable, pleasant or unpleasant.

Inimical/Harmful and unfavorable wave energies tend to spontaneously disturb and lower/sink the life energy sapping and emptying it of life light (brilliant, bright light emitting goodness- feeling), by activating the downward motion/momentum.

The mind being highly sensitive with high power receiving antenna is vulnerable and subject to intense feelings….agitation and flux/flow of energies unless checked by strict discipline, understanding at the relational level, exposure to environment and people. 

·        Aesthetic sensitivity towards beauty in all external things.

·        In course of interaction, they are free from crippling restraints and impoverishing inhibitions —This freedom is essential which has to be cultivated, nurtured to remove unintelligent substance from life energy by overcoming erroneous thoughts and tiring / unhealthy thinking & feeling.

·        Cognitive flexibility.

·       Independence in thought and action.

·        High level of creative, illuminated energy.

·        Unquestioning commitment to creative endeavors.

·        Unceasing striving for solutions to more and more difficult

·        Problems which he constantly sets for himself.

·        Creative people are lovers of nature, outdoors, rains etc.

·        Although they are just, honest and always look for justice, they do not get hurt if the circumstances are adverse.

·        They are courageous, treading unknown paths. They do not appreciate unnecessary or non-useful / stupid laws in social dealings.

·        They are independent in working without having any expectations or need for approval seeking, as their approval comes from inside, in proximity to spirit. They, generally, have a helping nature.

·        They love humor and are uncomplaining, accepting/adjusting with people / situations / circumstances as they are and also correcting which needs to be corrected.

·        Always, being doers, they do not always demand or are concerned with orderliness, organization. At the same time, they are self-disciplined with lot of energy and will. This aspect has to be regularly empowered.

·         As a natural outcome, they never play games to impress others for favors or promotion / raise.

Words of Knowledge: Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it- Goethe

April 4, 2007

The moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decisions, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.

A Practical Alternative : New Cosmic System for Human Governance

April 4, 2007

A Practical Alternative : New Cosmic System for Human Governance to Achieve Harmony, Peace and Prosperity 

By Ashok Sharma

Development of Human Civilization during past 2000 years is mainly attributed to the fact that human intellect has continuously been perfecting its ways of destroying and exploiting Nature, Cosmic System and organic life on the planet.

Thus, the past era of 2000 years shall be known as an era of unrestricted consumerism, massive material exploitations by capitalist forces, amassing of huge wealth by few and an era of inheritance of property and estates through bloodlines.

With the gradual evolution of human skills, intellect and development of science and technology, the veil of human ignorance of past thousands of years is fast disappearing and we notice a speeding emergence and evolution of collective Human wisdom and visions.

Industrialists, Plutocrats, Billionaires, Scientists, Scholars, Leading Thinkers and Intellectuals, touching the climax of present day material developments, have arrived at the conclusion that this exploitative Consumerism and self centered massive development has been achieved at the cost of excessive exploitation of Nature.

They have begun to realize that Human Race is recklessly cutting its own roots and damaging the environment and nature in similar manner as a man sitting on a tree cuts the very branch that supports him and this may lead to total extinction of human race from the canvas of the Cosmos.

A thought has started emerging and becoming noticeable in the collective human wisdom and masses now understand well that in spite of having achieved unimaginable height in area of science and technology, physical and material developments, hoarding of assets and wealth in trillions, Human Race is still condemned to living a horrible life in a hell where threat of its total destruction and a complete annihilation is looming large.

A horrible, lame and inhumane, evil and insensitive world surrounds our human society. It is to this Capitalist and Exploitative system of consumerism, that exposes a naked dance of a rampant increase in envy and hatred, unethical codes of life, tortures, immorality, injustice and terror, an environment of great insecurity, slavery, fear and extreme poverty that has crippled human society beyond any hope of recovery. 

Our past experience of 2000 years brings home the fact that a ‘Self centered System’ is dangerous and destructive to the interests of human society and is against Nature and its Environment. This is presenting a spectacle that is not at all reassuring for human race on earth.

A positive and constructive thought and awareness has started emerging among general masses that an Alternative Governance system, that could re-create the balance between Man and Environment and based on providing Support instead of exploitation, is the dire need for the people of this planet.

It is only then that the human race and Nature can Co-exist in safety, security, fearlessness, justice, good governance, co-operation, unity, equality and togetherness. Blooming of talents, creativity and holistic developments can only be possible under such conditions. Human society and the masses have started expecting and demanding a NEW SYSTEM OF GOVERNANCE which could deliver harmony, peace, prosperity and happiness of heavens.

Until now the concept of Self Centered Material Development has been pushed by keeping Nature at the service of
Man. But grave consequences, threats and horrible repercussions from prevailing era of consumerism and massive material exploitations, are now compelling humanity to establish and develop a ‘System’ where we keep ‘Nature and Creation’ in the Center to establish harmony, balance and co-operation between the Man and his Environment.

Cosmic System is a system of DUTY, RESPONSIBILITY and ACCOUNTABILITY that keeps Nature and the Cosmos at the focus instead of self centric greed of an individual. Whereas, most of the Countries in the world have adopted Exploitative Constitutions based on “UN Charter of Human Rights” and are Human Rights Oriented.

IN ORDER TO ESTABLISH AN EFFECTIVE AND PRACTICAL CONTROL OF SOVERIEGN GLOBAL POPULACE, ON THE LINES OF COSMIC SYSTEM, A GLOBAL ACCOUNTABILITY MANDATE OF DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES FOR THE GOVERNMENTS AND GOVERNING BODIES HAS BECOME A DIRE NEED OF OUR PRESENT TIMES.

Our “Fundamental Human Rights based constitutions” do not have provision of accountability, checks and balances for rulers and governing bodies. We keep the fulfillment of Human Greed and unrestricted ambitions in focus and accordingly, frame our laws to suit the whims and fancies of elite class. Perpetual attempt is made to make Nature ‘subservient to human greed and remain attending to human dictates like a slave servant. Our present day parameters and yardsticks are created keeping in view Man as Master Consumer and Nature and Environment as Slave and object consumed.

  PREAMBLE OF THE NEW SYSTEM

Today we need an Alternative System of Governance that will divest the State from Political parties and plug once and for all the economic exploitation of society. 

The new System will handover the actual control of Political and Economic Powers to be entirely controlled by Local people and will declare Water, Ponds, Lakes, Rivers, Forests, Land and Environment as Life and Property of local populace who would control and govern these themselves.

For this to happen, we shall have to gradually limit, and eventually do away with the Laws of Inheritance. Mandatory provision of monthly Social Security Allowance to each and every member of society has now become a necessity. 

The new System will declare the violation and or exploitation of  the ‘ Laws of Nature and Environment ‘ as Crime against life and property of human populace and against Female sex, Children, Disabled and Wild life as cruelty and crime against Humanity which shall mean Treason.

Ethics of System:  

1.   Mandatory Ethical Codes of Conduct for Public representatives and Public servants i.e. “Servers” 

(i)  DUTIES: Explanation of duties by the Servers towards humanity, society and an individual. 

(ii) RESPONSIBILITIES: Explanation of responsibilities of Servers. 

(iii) ACCOUNTABILITY: Setting up the Benchmarks of the SERVERS to measure and authenticate the discharge of the Duties and Responsibilities of the Servers towards an individual and society.

Words of Knowledge : Profit is like oxygen …….not the point of the life- Jim & Jerry

April 3, 2007

Profit is like oxygen, food and water for the body- These things are not the points of life, but without them, there is no life.  In the same way, visionary companies see profit as a residual of doing things well, not the point of being in business”.

Can we have a science … within or … of consciousness?

April 2, 2007

By  Anup Vishnu Bagla   

 

TOWARDS A SCIENCE OF CONSCIUSNESS:

ONE CONSCIOUSNESS PERTAINING TO SELF:

No sub-consciousness /or unconsciousness, which is figment of human imagination / mind, On the basis of purity / quality and state of awakening.

• ONE MIND / CONSCIOUSNESS AS PART /CONTENT OF WHOLE / LARGER UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS :

From one whole mind or consciousness, universal – creative source – all individual consciousness are derived and after they come into being / existence as entity / being, they go through their life cycle depending upon their characteristics, purity and quality etc.

Universal or whole consciousness (MIND) has the intelligence of it’s own, which is the true creative intelligence (purest and brightest) as integrel property of it’s spiritual aspect (make up).

ELABORATION

Individual consciousness as entity / being, although they are part of whole (universal consciousness), they have individual purpose /role play under the larger direction or design plan of world / universal manifestation.

We, as, players have limited – or – to the extent gifted, based on the evolutionary aspect – part to play in relation (vis-a-vis) to other individual consciousness, all of them together forming a cohesive, universal whole, as expressed in manifestation of world drama stage.

At consciousness level, which is the quantum space operating through the whole Universe at a given moment, we are all united in one consciousness from where we draw our energy for operating at individual levels.

The energy of entropy also comes from the same source. Therefore we can be aware of thought activity in our neighbourhood surrounding environment at this higher consciousness level and even at distant past or future space-time events.

At our individual consciousness / understanding, energy level by living in our waking or sleeping state, we create program and work according to that program in our individual mind. Our individual consciousness united with one whole / supreme consciousness gives the feeling of oneness as one wave in the sea.

Thus, the entire Universal / cosmic consciousness is ever existing phenomenon with it’s creative intelligence potentially present in it’s subtle core of substance within the consciousness.

This ever – existing consciousness is the common denominator at the un-manifest level of all manifest activity. It is ever in vibration within it’s subtle core where combustion and renewal of the intelligent vibratory substance / wavelets is constantly taking place, under some invisible cosmic design principle / direction. Therefore it is a self- sustaining chain process – a larger self, which is the only TRUTH we know of.

Words of Knowledge: Life is no brief candle to me – G.B. Shaw

March 31, 2007

“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I have a hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it over to future generations”.
