Oneness can be a concept which is impossible for the human mind to grasp. Thich Nhat Hanh seems to be one Spiritual Master who gets it, however. In this writing, I share a poem of his about Oneness and I continue my own writing which carries his thoughts a little further. Finally, I c...
I get sick and tired of people telling me that I am a negative thinker. Compared to who, I ask them? "Why don't I embrace positive thoughts?" they will ask me next. "We all just think. I have never had a negative thought in my life, nor have I ever had a positive one," I reply. I...
Our inner yearnings are clear from time immemorial though we are blinded by those that that prove fleeting leading to Pyrrhic victories at most. Peace is eminently attainable with nature and other species showing the way and history is our teacher. Let us sit together to chart our pa...
This article is written a bit as a tongue-in-cheek analysis of the well-known saying, "this too, shall pass". This writer likes too question things that are accepted, are well-known, and are never questioned as to whether they are really entirely truthful, or not. This then is my ow...
Listen to the inner voice for passion, guidance and encouragement. We have to move on with a spirit of inquiry to better our lot and by playing our role as co-creators. Our quest for an inclusive ride will soothe the nerves of those who feel left out and even encourage them to join th...
The wonders of creation will keep us enthralled forever but we should stick with the basics to unravel the mysteries. The foundation has to be strong but no species, including the mighty us, can really hope for outside help unless we prove worthy of it; looks like we are still stuck o...
Numerology is said to be a science of your inner numbers. Is it just a pseudo-science, or not though? The author of this book has been practising numerology for over forty years, and he believes in the truth that it reveals through an in-depth study of its methods. Truth is always t...
My day has been somewhat crazy, so some peaceful thoughts are in order.
We are no closer to understanding the mysteries of creation despite the scientific progress. Our society is polarized as it was right from the beginning; we are compartmentalized in every way despite sharing the very essentials for our existence. Unraveling the mysteries of creation c...
This poem is a bit of a play on words. It tries to stop us from thinking, "we are who we are", so that we might then become who, "we currently am not", who just might be the real, "I who I really am". The poetry here takes some contemplating upon. You might find it a bit strangely ...
Though the world is getting more crowded going by population numbers, many are leading lonely lives not of their choice. They are left on the wayside as lifestyle is gathering speed in terms of technology resulting in lack of time for the basics that bonded our society.
Competition is the ultimate weakness, creation is the ultimate strength. However, I am not saying that work and bargains are not needed. No, they are creatively wanted. But trying to "outshine" others is not needed, but creative and original productivity is. This, in essence is what t...
The Tao Ching in its opening lines says that that which can be spoken or written down is not the real Tao. This writing though is about the real Tao. Read it without reading it then, and you will find understanding from not understanding it. Do not try too hard to find meaning then i...
Einstein and others have concluded time is an illusion and that past, present and future all exist simultaneously. I think that gives us another perspective to lead our lives with a spring in our steps that we have lived to tell the tale! We will forever be part of the humongous creat...
This article is a review of a book by an author who became well-known in spiritual circles for his writings, until his untimely death, at only 55 years of age. At the time of his death, Tony was running a very popular spiritual centre in India. His sudden and unexpected death is seen...
We fall within the gamut of the creative process and get recycled but with our individual identity. We are from the same source, part of the creative process, able to create our niche; yet blend with the whole. Our justice system pales in comparison to the law of cause and effect. Rei...
The Tao reads as a book of contradictions. This is not really true though. It is really just pointing out to you that if you take a certain side in anything, you really can never detach yourself from the other side then either. Don't take sides, walk the straight, or the bent, or ...
When we are from the creative process, part of the reality, how can we act against the whole? Our lives will be uplifted to another level when we think and live as part of a large family with each having distinct and meaningful role to play. When the oneness of creation drives our goa...
This article discusses all parts of us, including our personality, our body, our mind, and our consciousness, in relation to where they might exist within the reality of God's oneness. The writer asks questions, and asserts here that it takes the asking of questions to un-earth the t...
Oneness has a hard time of it being understood within duality. Read this with an open mind, and you might see my point. The point is that I have not made any points here at all. Where could the points fit within oneness, or has it really in fact got an infinite number of such rest...
Can a finite mind know infiniteness? Only if it embraces God's oneness. This is the paradox of God. God's oneness is always oneness, but infinity is not always infinity. Infinity is a manifestation that ultimately all again disappears. It disappears for us as much as we listen to ...
You are undoubtedly only you, you might think to yourself, but are you actually a part of something bigger than you too? This is oneness. How do we relate to something so notoriously airy-fairy as this concept of oneness? I give two examples from my own life to try to clear some of...
Being my self is all that I can ever be, because it is also all there is for me to be. Everything that exists in oneness, also exists in me. Nothing is different from me. Nothing exists outside of me. There is no duality, and there are no other separate existences either. Love is i...
We have to backtrack on weapons proliferation to fight for peace and rely on the spark of divinity that is the bedrock of the creative process. If humanity goes against what drives creation we will be consigned to the dustbin of history like others before us. We will self-destruct wit...
The writer recently had an experience in which a series of events unfolded for him right before his eyes. He was just an observer here, but he gained some vital learnings and insights from what would perhaps otherwise have been just a largely wasted morning, sitting idly by doing no...
