Since I was a kid, I have been taught to take responsibility. From my parents to school teachers, everybody taught me to take responsibility for something.
Each of my mentors in life taught me to compete with other human beings in life. From kindergarten to university, I kept on competing with others for something.
After I finished my education, I got good job in corporate sector. Even though I was making a good salary but my desire to possess things was never ending. I literally felt that I have been brain washed to compete and possess things by education system and other belief systems in society.
Even though I was so much indulged in trying to possess wealth, I would always give sometime to my own thinking. Being philosophical is my basic nature even though nobody taught me this.
Every day I would sit by myself quietly for one hour during lunch time while I was working for corporate sector. It was one afternoon when I went into deep meditation while sitting quietly thinking about my own life. All of sudden I felt so much love in that moment. It was literally that moment which changed my whole life.
After experiencing that moment of love, I realized that from my parents to school teachers, nobody ever taught me love. I just realized that education system teaches everything except love.
It is just lack of love that we try to possess things. It is only lack of love that we keep on trying to compete with each other. Society literally teaches human to be paid slave. Society is in fact incapable to teach anything about love since it does not know anything about freedom and love.
I was fortunate to experience that moment of love which unconditioned my brain from ridiculous conditioning of competition. But I still wonder about misery prevailing within human race in modern society.
I am sure that if a moment of love could end my misery by ending my desire to possess things and compete with others, then love would definitely change each human being in civilization.
Sharing leads to love. Division could only lead to misery.
I am sure that soon we would live in a society where everybody would share among each other instead of competing. I am sure that one day foundation of our society would be love and freedom instead of misery and slavery.
The whole humanity is under misery when I look it with my eyes. Misery starts from my home and it never ends anywhere outside. Everybody from my parents to friends seems to be miserable to some extent.
I often wonder if misery is really what human is born to live in. But if human is supposed to live a miserable life, then my life should also be a misery, which is not the case. My life teaches me that human is definitely not born to be miserable.
But then one question comes to my mind if human is not born to live in misery, what could be reason for all this misery with human all over the world.
There could be many reasons for human misery. Sick Society could be one prime cause of human misery. Most of us keep trying to prove in a society, which is already sick. Won’t it make one even more sick and miserable when try to prove in a society, which is already sick.
The foundation of human society is based upon certain set of rules and conditioning which is very much against human basic nature which is wild and which knows only freedom.
Human is born out of nature, which is utterly free. So human is supposed to live in utter freedom. Since society is based upon certain rules and regulation which causes most of conflict for human to live freely. Since lifestyle of human in modern society is in conflict with his basic nature which is one reason for human misery.
Lack of love in life could be another reason of human never ending misery. Everybody in nature including human is born out of love. Misery is that human is incapable to love in society.
Most of civilized humans think that they are in love when they know nothing about love. They keep trying to feel love without falling in love. It is simply not possible for someone to fall in love without freedom. Love only exists where freedom exists.
Only in utter freedom one could find love and only in love one could get rid of misery
One thing I am pretty sure that reason of life is not be in misery, but to be in love. Social society needs to be reshaped for human to be in freedom, and then only human could find love which life offers.
Only when one is free, one could find love in life only then one could get rid of all the misery. Only when one finds love one could realize how blissful life is. I hope human would understand this fact soon to get rid of never ending misery.
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.
It is life not death that is mysterious. Most of human feel the other way though. It is very easy for human to feel that death but not life is mysterious since death is unknown.
Most of us think that we know life very well. This is one misery that we think that we know everything about life when we know nothing about life.
Most of us keep trying to unveil mystery of death. But the fact is that mystery of death can never be unveiled until we unveil mystery of life. In fact death is not a mystery at all if someone could unveil mystery of life.
Most of us never realize that life is lot more than our daily mechanical activities. Life has indeed lot more to offer than robotic life style which capitalism offers.
Life is a pendulum of awareness, which moves between consciousness and sex. Most of us are living in such a robotic manner that they always stay at sex in the pendulum of awareness. They could not shift awareness to the other side of pendulum called consciousness.
But only when one goes to the other side of pendulum and touches consciousness, one could realize that death is not mysterious at all. In fact death is nothing more than valley of love.
I am hopeful that human would come out of this ignorance that they know everything about life and would come out of robotic lifestyle to feel life in more depth.
I am really hopeful that human would realize the fact that its life not death that is unknown mystery.
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.
