Freedom-Mother of creativity
On my trip to India, One day in McLeod Ganj, my friend told me about a party at Shiva Café. Since I never miss any opportunity to celebrate life, I went to Shiva Café for this dance party.
One really has to walk up the mountain to go to Shiva Café. After going all the way up to the mountain, finally I went to the café where people were celebrating life like free souls.
I would say I had time of my life dancing with some real hippie people that night. One German guy told me about Boom festival in Europe in the party.
Since I always follow omens in life, next month I went to Portugal for boom festival. This was first time for me to go in such a multi cultural festival like Boom.
There were almost more than 30000 people who came to Boom from all around the world. I was surprised to see some people walking fully naked in the festival. I never saw such human freedom in civilization before.
Since one aspect of my personality is philosophy. So philosophy goes with me where ever I go. Every day I would sit by myself and would observe different human beings who came to boom from all over the world.
I could feel a total change in human behavior in boom festival. For the first time I realized how much creativeness, freedom could bring in human.
I realized that basic nature of human is to be wild. Only in utter wilderness, human could reach topmost level of creativeness lying within human awareness.
I felt that one reason of misery in civilization is lack of freedom. When human is not free, there is no way human could be creative. Unless human is creative, there is no way human could touch the eternal feeling like love. Unless human could touch Love, there is no way he could get rid of misery.
I felt that in civilization, human has lost its capability to live in awareness. Since Human has lost capability to live in awareness, Human has lost capability to be creative. There is no way, Human could come out of misery until human is creative since creativeness gives birth to love.
Freedom gives birth to Creativity which in turn gives birth to Love
Back in India, I met so many people who went there to find meaning of life. For a moment, I felt pity for those people. I felt that meaning of life lies in creativity which lies in human awareness. Only Human creation could define the meaning of life.
One thing I learnt from boom is that since we cannot go back to totally being uncivilized, but we can create environment like boom permanently in civilization itself where human could be free.
We could create environment where the whole idea would be to share unconditionally. We could create a world where one would just share wisdom, wealth and everything else with other human beings.
We really could create a world where each human would be totally free. I am pretty sure that each human would be an artist with his own creativity in such world. I am pretty sure that such world would be full of love. Misery would never come close to human in such world.
Love-An unconditional feeling
I never plan when I travel.I would say I never plan anything in life.If I plan something by chance,I would never do that.
With no planning in my mind,I started a trip to india back in february.Couple of Strangers on the way to India told me that Rishikesh is pretty kool place to start travelling.So keeping this in mind,I started travelling in India from Rishikesh.
One thing I always felt that love is unconditional.I really wanted to experience some moments of uncondtional love on my travel.I was following all omens to find a moment of uncondtinal love.
In Rishikesh I became very good friend with one old dutch couple.They were my neighbours on beautiful Hotel on River Ganga. Coincidently the indian name of old dutch lady was also Ganga.This dutch couple was in Rishikesh to meet some spirtual master.Me being very spiritual,I would have conversation on spiritulity with Dutch couple every evening.
Rishikesh is such a lively place that you really never realize how quickly time goes by.All of sudden,It was two weeks for me to be in Rishikesh.I decided to leave the city and go to south India.I told Dutch couple that I was leaving next day.
Next morning,somebody knocked my door at around 7 am in the morning.I just woke up and opened the door.I saw Dutch old lady infront of my half opened eyes.Since I was leaving that day,she asked me to give her a hug.In my half asleep,I gave her a tight hug.
Suddenly After she left I started crying like a baby.I kept on crying for almost 15 minutes.I just realized that no human had ever offered me such unconditional love.I felt that the moment I hugged her was so full of love that It lived forever.
Depth of innocence in eyes of one in love reveals that love has to be unconditional
I realized that only moment of love is real,Everything else is just an illusion.I realized that moment of love is not a dream but it is the only reality.
Its almost a year since I hugged the old dutch lady and cried like a baby.Its been a year that one moment of love taught me that love is always uncondtional.If there is any condition exists in love,then it is just an illusion of love.
It’s been a year since I started my travel Journey. One reason that I decided travel was to know if life really has to offer something more than money.
I really had an intuition that life has something more to offer than my mechanical lifestyle. In my hope to find something more I started my travel with a road trip across USA.
During my first few weeks of travel, I started realizing that how much I was disconnected from nature. While driving in dawn and dusk, I started finding touching beauty of my soul.
I started feeling and that dawn and dusk represents my soul. I felt for moments that one purpose of life could be to feel dawn and dusk.
On the way to my road trip I went across beautiful mountains, deserts and greenery. While crossing those mountains, deserts, I started feeling my own silence. I felt that how much mountains and deserts are connected to my own silence.
For the first time I felt that only in extreme silence of mind, one could feel the love which mountains, trees and deserts offer. I really felt as if nobody loved me until I felt those beautiful mountains in my extreme silence.
Only in extreme silence of mind,One could feel love which nature offers.
I always thought that I had to go to party or go for clubbing to celebrate life. But it was first moment of my life when I realized that celebrations lie in extreme silence of mind. I realized that one who has started to celebrate nothingness in extreme silence has found the true meaning of celebration.
While driving across nature, I could not believe that life could be so complete and satisfying. I could not believe that even nature sings and voice of nature is most melodic.
Until I reached California, I really found the reason of my travel. I really found that I was missing love in my life. I really found that I was missing an art to listen to the songs of mountains.
Only my first few weeks of travel gave me a reason to keep travelling more. Only in first few weeks of my travel I realized that whole purpose of life is to celebrate.
Today it’s been a year since I started travelling the world. I feel so blessed that I found lost part of my personality. I feel so blessed that I started feeling infinite love which is condensed in my heart.
Accepting Imperfection-A way towards Enlightenment
Enlightenment is a moment when one feels infinite bliss by merging into infinite nothingness. It is a state of human awareness where human mind mingles into consciousness.
No Human in this universe could be enlightened forever. State of extreme bliss as enlightenment exists only in moments.
In fact human is not born to be enlightened forever. Human is indeed born to live for imperfection as well. Human mind symbolizes imperfection whereas consciousness symbolizes perfection. If the goal was to be perfect always, consciousness would never have manifested human mind.
The reason for human to exist is to swing in between perfection as well as imperfection. The one goal of human life could be to accept and appreciate imperfection contained in human mind.
One misery with human is that we never understand that mind is imperfect. We never realize that feelings which originate from human like lust,anger,fear symbolizes imperfection. Most of the time human keeps on trying to get rid of these feelings without accepting and appreciating them. But the fact is that the moment we accept these imperfect feelings, we move towards love which is perfection.
Human never realizes that even desire to have no desire also symbolizes imperfection. It is also another obstacle to Enlightenment. The only way to get enlightenment is acceptance of all desires, all feelings which are imperfect.
Nobody in this universe can force perfection. In other words nobody in this universe can force enlgihtenment.There is no way to get rid of imperfection of mind forcefully.Ony way to get rid of imperfection and touch perfection is by accepting and appreciating thought mechanism of mind.
Accepting Imperfection is a way to touch perfection.Accepting imperfection is a way to get enlightenment.
After one get glimpse of state of infinite bliss as enlightenment,One could realize that human is born to live for imperfection as well. Perfection would hold no value if somebody had never experienced imperfection.
Life is not complete unless one has lived the moments of imperfection as well perfection. Life is really not complete unless one could not swing in between perfection as well as imperfection.
I hope that one day human would understand that reason of birth is not to get enlightened only but to appreciate imperfection of human mind as well. I hope that human would understand that accepting imperfection is a way to get enlightenment
I hope to be alive on the day when human would be no more forgotten mystic .I hope to be alive on the day when each human would be enlightened on this planet called Earth.
human-a spiritual being
Spirituality is not separated from human existence. In fact spirituality is a part of human existence.
Life cannot be complete if someone cannot live up to both human and spiritual aspect of his personality.
Thought is what gives rise to human personality. Most of us act based upon the thought based mechanism. Action based upon thought based mechanism can never be perfect.
During human aspect of our personality mind acts as master of body. Mind generates thoughts based upon which body acts. Since thought is mundane, human aspect of us is temporary and imperfect.
Spiritual aspect of personality comes into picture when one starts going beyond thought. The moment one goes beyond thought, one touches perfection.
Body becomes slave of consciousness when one goes beyond the kingdom of thought. When one is controlled by consciousness, one could realize the spiritual aspect of our personality which knows only perfection. There could be nothing more blissful when body becomes slave of consciousness instead of thought.
Most of human keep striving for having spiritual experiences without realizing that spirituality is part of human existence. None other than our own inner self in this universe can help us experiencing spiritual aspect of our personality.
On the other hand most of us never even realize that there is something more to our human personality. Most of us become so much slave of mind that the never realize that there is some blissful experience which exist beyond mind.
Some who go beyond mind and start having spiritual experiences never want to live for human imperfection anymore.Such kind of people start living life in their own spiritual world forgetting about human aspect of existence.
One who has never experienced spiritual aspect of existence is surely living an incomplete life. But on the other hand one who has gone beyond human aspect and started experiencing spiritual aspect but does not want to live for human imperfection is also living an incomplete life.
One who has touched perfection but still live appreciating imperfection is greatest of all.
One who starts having spiritual experiences but still start living for human imperfection is a mystic. Life of such mystic is complete. In fact life of such mystic is greatest gift to humanity.
