Before I started world travel back in January, my brother told me to visit Rishikesh, India. He told me to visit Rishikesh since he thought that me being very spiritual, I would really love to be there.
Taking his words of wisdom, I started my trip from Rishikesh.As soon I entered holy city of Rishikesh, I felt very much vibrant. I felt that this city was full of positive vibrations.
Slowly I started interacting with lot of wonderful people who came from all over the world. One thing I found common in everybody was that they were in search of something mystic, something unknown. Most of them were in search of enlightenment.
Somehow the fact that people came to Rishikesh for enlightenment put me in the state of shock to some extent. I was surprised that people desire of something which is completely unknown to them.
I wish I could explain all those wonderful people that Enlightenment is not a desire or a goal to attain, but it is a state of human awareness. I wish I could explain them that they are already enlightened.
The misery with Human is that he is unaware of the fact that human is born enlightened. He has just forgotten this fact.
Enlightenment is not a thing, which someone could get at a particular place, but it is recognition of human’s own state by increasing level of awareness. Enlightenment has nothing to do with reading holy books or following any spiritual gurus or following any religion, but it is all about reading mind.
Only when human reads his own mind, He could shift awareness to highest levels. Only at highest level of awareness one could experience divine consciousness.
Even though I knew that It was ignorance of people who were trying to get enlightened by visiting Rishikesh,I still respected them for the fact that at least they were desiring for something eternal rather than mundane.
But I am really hopeful that all those wonderful people who were seeking enlightenment would realize that desire of enlightenment is the biggest obstacle to enlightenment. I hope that they would understand that nobody except their own self is capable to enlighten them in the entire universe.
Dusk and Dawn appear very beautiful to me. Most of the time I sit in solitude and meditate during dusk and dawn.
Both Dusk and Dawn remind me that nothing is constant. Everything has to change. Day has to follow with night and night has to follow with day. It makes me realize that change is law of nature.
One who is born has to grow old and one who grows old has to die. Similar way one who is asleep has to wake up and one who is awake has to sleep. Nothing is constant in the universe from life to death except love.
Only love remains constant in between the entire changes Universe offers. But to feel the love offered, one must be open enough to accept the change.
One must accept and appreciate the fact that everything from life to death is temporary and illusionistic in nature. Only love is eternal and real. One must accept this fact to feel the love during any change.
If human would start clinging to this fact that everything is temporary and has to change except love and start falling in love which universe offers, I am sure that It would end all human suffering and misery one day.
Love is an eternal feeling. Even one moment of love is enough for someone to meet divine. Love would be even probably brighter than brightness produced if Earth merges into Sun.
One who falls in love knows that only reason to have life is to love. In fact one who falls in love becomes love. Every act for such person becomes love.
Even pain seems beautiful to human who is full of love. Human in love is like magician who can transform pain into love.
But I often wonder if love is so wonderful, why not everybody falls in love?
One reason could be that human is not aware of moments of love. Everybody has moments of love but not everybody realizes them. Moment of love comes so unconsciously that it is impossible to realize it without having certain level of awareness . If somebody could realize moment of love, there is no reason that one would not start attracting more and more love in life.
Other reason could be that Human is not open enough to receive love. Human has so much involved in mundane that it has become so hard for him to receive eternal.
Human has lost awareness in an effort to trying to fulfill all the mundane desires. Human must understand that only love could satisfy all the desires. Only eternal can satisfy mundane.
But I am sure that Human would overcome all the misery and fall in love again. I am sure that soon human would realize that love is the only solution to never ending misery. I know that love is powerful enough to bring human back in harmony.
