Disclaimer: We have either defended homosexuality or suppressed it. We probably have not been curious about it the way we have been on various other topics. I believe, homosexuality like anything else in life deserves its due attention and shall be accepted as a matter of fact. Core of my work is curiosity and to attempt to find out what makes us unique in any moment or in any situation. This article no way claims certainty of facts but is an attempt to explore. It neither judges homosexuality as good or bad.
Love like breathing is an autonomous process and is an innate process for all living being. Our search for love, in essence, is search for our own self. It somewhere begins with our adolescence age around the time when we discover our identity with advent of sexual energy. It is a time, when we begin to realize we are not our parents and this pushes us harder to think of our future and survival. There is tremendous curiosity towards future which is a journey into unknown and it is triggered by sexuality and not spirituality. There is enough sense of realization that parents are base and roots but not the branches and flowers. Having grown with love and care and being accepted for what we are, suddenly, around this age, we feel being left alone.
Man is a social animal” and “monogamy is the way to evolve civilized life”. Both of these are not natural phenomenon for humanity; men and women alike.
On this planet of duality- duality of right and wrong, day and light, male and female, it appear to be the compelling need of the existance to cultivate this phenomenon to make humanity to be dependent, interdependent on each other. It was forced by nature to discover union in each other and with everyone.
Pain and bliss are inevitable and natural phenomenon and we are naturally gifted to experience these two extreme frequencies. When a child is hurt, then he/she experiences pain and cries out as it experiences pain. As child cries out, pain disappear and next moment child is ready to play again having no impression of fear of pain. Same toy, same kids and child is at same place doing same thing to experience Joy and bliss by being total in that moment of being playful. However that is not how we groom our children. We give them a belief that pain is not good and stay away from people/places/situations which give you pain. While as parents you are right to protect children, but mistake happens when we give a belief that you shall not cry when it pains… be strong… boys shall not cry…
Parenting has evolved over a period of time specially in last few decades with nuclear family concept due to urbanization and one could argue if it is for good. We are probably the only generation which is beginning to be obsessed with our children and we are far more non trusting in universe else, as said by Gibran, life was taken as a journey where one does experiences and passes on the wisdom and heritage to children and leaving their journey of life on universe.
Role of a mother is to provide unconditional acceptance called love and role of father is to provide unconditional protection…
A child when born does not have mind,ego and sense of survival. It is being inflicted by parents to create a survivor out of child. This is how a child begins to develop survival instinct at the cost of loosing the state of bliss.
This is what Nostradamus told his son, Caesar, about secret of seeing future. He lived in the 16th century.
“I emptied my soul, brain and heart of all care and attained a state of tranquillity and stillness of mind which are prerequisites for predicting by means of the brass tripod, human understanding being created by intellect cannot see secret things unless helped by voices from a void which is helped in turn by the thin candle flame from which comes a clouded vision of great events, unhappy and important, cataclysmic adventures arriving at the right time.”
The great, Anna Hazare fasted for 12 days just like Windows in safe mode, in other words: lame, passive and anti-constructive. On the other hand, Ramdev, the greater yogi, collapsed the 3rd day while operating in the same mode. Instead another yogi had to be called and saved his grace by offering juice. Although Anna was successful, for once, and triggered hope through anger and rage, which unfortunately didn’t last long and let to great depression in people. At their own turf, with complete support of 1.25 billion angry people, Anna couldn’t be sustained or create optimism.
Since the beginning of civilization, we have cultivated charity. You have more than you need and you give others who have less than what they need. With many centuries of organized civilizations, promotion of this concept has, disappointingly, resulted in 50% of the 7 billion people on this planet living below poverty line. So the question is: Do we still want to do charity?
If Existence Does Not Want Us To Remember Our Past Lives, Is It Okay To Push Ourselves Into Past Lives?
Disclaimer: This is a question from a seeker and dwells well in the realm of mysticism, hence I may not attempt to reply to it at logical level. It is an assumption that existence does not want us to remember our past lives. If so, Buddha would not have seen all his past lives to attain enlightenment and Krishna would not have shown past and future to uplift Arjuna from attachment. Therefore, this assumption is grossly misplaced and has been…
