I understand that lock down is beginning to weigh some of us down; but it’s only the hope from faith in self and the Almighty that will show us the light through the current dark tunnel. We can fight it but fight it together for better days ahead. Let my poem say the rest:
We the children of the light, we children of the dark became We hide we lurk we thieve we kill, without a blush of shame And built shadows from the Sun with tall bricks soulless And blasted the waves to quench our corruption excess Now we live in fear of darkness we sought so keenly Now the hands eclipse the face scarred obscenely It’s not too late, it never is to submit and pray for light It’s a pain that will pass and again shall be alright For we the children of the dark seek the days bright For the hope in good in heart shall rebuild the soul’s sight
I dreamt of Utopia post Coronavirus and I saw what looked like a free world The sky was blue and the birds flew happy No animal lived in the waiting for slaughter The fruit so sweet lusciously climbing From the fertile breeding soil pulsating And springing life potent to all fairly Then I saw two humans of disparity One was mirthful singing with the birds While the morose tangoed with the devils Of own heart, to poison every fruit on the tree To quell all freedom out of God’s kingdom So he was obtruded on to the banished lands To keep all the homogeneous beings to live In the Utopia of life with happy simplicities
Struggling with concentration while trying to meditate? Then, please read this article to the end. Meditation requires concentration but you can focus on what you have seen and heard easier than on the abstractness of a thought. It’s a bit like not been able to see the electricity but can see a lighted bulb and its glow. Similarly, when I can visualise a healthy body I can focus on the abundance of health; When I remember an occasion that made me happy I can contemplate abundance of happiness; When I received a decent bonus I could relate it to the abundance of wealth. So, we need to think about a real life example that we have actually seen and heard which can then enhance our feelings and strengthen our belief when meditating, while desiring any aspect of Health, Wealth and Happiness. There is one vital responsibility on our part to practise this to perfection- think of a positive image but move on to build your current desire on that feeling, instead of getting stuck in the time zone. From my personal experience and those who tried my method can confirm that it makes concentration easier and hence, don’t be dishearten by a straying mind because it can actually assist you to focus. I am talking about the corporeal level of spirituality where we still desire to better our physical life. But how does a wandering mind help to ground our thoughts? The hardest part of meditation is to calm down the drifting mind. Instead of struggling to wrestle it down and end up all stressed up blaming the meditation itself, try to follow your thoughts and you’ll discover the reason why your mind is drifting towards a preferred stimulus. A thought is like the magnet and it creates a magnetic field to attract events which have stirred a deep feeling within yourself when they happened. A thought inside finds its release when you are in a concentrating mode – you become the captive audience to the drama created by the mind. The scene enacted can be painful or joyful. Whether its negative or positive, it will result in pulling you away from the focus on your current desire. Let’s see then how to handle a negative scenario first- I am imagining sitting down to meditate and suddenly start thinking about my late sister and it pushes me in to the well of sadness. I have to think how to climb out now. So, I would either think about the other siblings whom I love dearly and are still alive or I would coach myself to think of a happy memory to get back in to the happy mood and once in the positive mindset , I would carry on with my desired focus. But if it’s a happy reminiscence that has forced me off on to the hard shoulder, then I would get back on the road by thinking that I would desire to turn every day of my life in to as happy a day. Once on the right path in either cases, I would continue with my journey of mediation. Setting yourself back on track requires practise and it’ll test your resilience and determination. The next stage would be feeling what we have successfully focused on. Once we get the tingling feelings on visualising our focus we could say that we are ready to align and manifest whatever we desire. I strongly feel that it is actually easier at present time to take out a picture of health, wealth and happiness from the pre-corona times, and focus on the feeling that triggers within you and yoke together the exalted feelings with the actual purpose of your meditation. I am ready to focus on my purpose now, why don’t you join me too? Let us meditate together, wherever we are, and join at the bedrock of our current desire- Life without the plague. It gives me the incentive to light the 30th candle to the hope in life.
It’s true that the laws of the Universe guide us how to align with its ultimate Energy, however, ‘it’s through I that I meet my Maker’. The energy of the Universe is also called by many other names such as God, Waheguru, Allah, Bhagwan, Almighty and many more. But we ourselves are the medium to align with the frequency of the Universal force. The sequence of oneness is like this- Nourish the positive thought of stepping on the path to knowing yourself, then practise to calm down your fleeting thoughts which is also called meditation, speak to yourself about all the lingering doubts and what would quench your scepticism silently is your subconscious speaking within you, the more you connect with your subconscious the more you would raise your vibration (our energy) to align with the higher frequency of the Universe itself. We have such a great potential but how many of us recognise this treasure hidden inside us? Frankly, not many, and consequently the power lies dormant in most people. We live in a society where spirituality is interpreted mainly through religions which are competing with one another to win the medal for holding the BEST God! We are stuck in this quicksand and the more we brawl the swifter we sink. This is mostly the picture we humans have drawn of our individual god- fighting and slandering the other gods! It’s time to replace this canvas of dogmatic beliefs to paint a unified faith in one universe which is faceless and colourless. This is where the laws of the Universe become relevant and imperative. However, it’s vital to also understand that these laws are not setting up a cult or inventing another new religion, not even challenging the existing ones. On the other hand, many people mistake Laws of the Universe as an easy substitute for their own religion which didn’t yield the desired results in life. Fact is not many people can honestly claim to have actually understood their individual religion fully in its real context as most of us have just accepted a lazier version of listening to the third party (mis) interpretations of the holy books, creating more misunderstandings and non-believers, along with profitable businesses and politics in many cases. Fact is that the true understanding of any religion is interrelated with the Laws of the Universe. The theology of the laws is not a magic trick, instead, it’s a spiritual science ( vaster than academic science) that is disciplined, logical and practical; hence also requires self-training. In fact I have understood my birth religion better after my acquaintance with the laws of the Universe, and I am still learning. As an example, one of the Sikh prayers, ‘Japji Sahib’, which I’ve recited my whole life and I am beginning to understand only now. Japji Sahib(A prayer written by Guru Nanak) defines the Almighty perfectly, for me- God is ONE (not Sikh, not a Christian, not a Hindu or a Muslim but in the sense of the ONLY ultimate Power) and only oneness of humanity can align with oneness of God; It’s THE Truth; It’s the ALL doer and the Creator of all; It’s without fear or hate; It’s Timeless and has no beginning or the end, It’s not bound by gender, species and is outside the cycle of birth and death. We need to understand the laws without prejudice and I am confident it would also help to understand a religious theology better too. If we can learn to define our religions without institutionalisation and territorialism, we can win the war against the ungodliness thriving inside the mankind today. This can only result in becoming one with peace, aligned with love. If this thought is not heaven then I wonder what is? Join me to light the 29th candle for oneness.
I would like to pay homage to all the loving dear ones whom we have lost through Corona virus and other varied causes. We all feel the same pangs of love and we all embrace one another for solace. This is one human behaviour I hold in reverence. Lets light the 28th candle to our dear one’s life. A group hug through my poem: Today is the day to think of a dear life lost Raise a glass with me in their honour to toast No one dies totally you can ask any science They beat in our hearts, in thoughts embossed. My sister, your friend, someone else’s mum Gone forever, as would say our mind glum But they live in the memories we keep ignited ‘Come in my dreams, you are always welcome’. Some lived a full life on a happy roundabout Yet others were chased for an early sign out Sadness we must lose to celebrate their life Accept God’s will and peace be in with a shout.
If someone had said to me a few years ago that I would hold science as reference to my mystic beliefs, I would have just laughed at the notion because my faith existed in the theories that were passed down from generations to generation without questioning their logic, relevance or in fact the truth. Even though I still believe that science might be a part of the spiritual plan and not the other way around, I thank Albert Einstein for his theory of relativity because it explains the law of metaphysicality unambiguously. My reference to this ideology is in spiritual context only as I am not a science guzzler kind of an academic. So, I am actually fascinated to write this blog. AS per Einstein’s theory of relativity, E= MC2 and according to this formula, Energy is equal to Mass times C or speed of light squared. So, Mass or matter can be interchangeable with energy only through its association with the fastest velocity that can move an object in a vacuum. As I’ve understood the most powerful factor in this equation is the motion of light in a straight line which can speed up even a small amount of mass to become a massive energy. Now, I equate it to my understanding of spirituality- when my physical form is grounded in a steady (the straight line of the light) meditative state ( the vacuum) it would unite my body, mind and soul to vibrate at once to connect me with my inner higher self. When this vibration speeds up further by consistent focus, an immense energy is created that taps into the ultimate power of the Universe. So, if the tiny mass of my life ( Einstein’s M) vibrate at a high frequency ( Einstein’s C but in relative terms), I would become a part of the supreme energy ( Einstein’s E) created in the process. But why just a part and not the enormous energy itself, as per scientist’s formula? Here’s why- Einstein also showed further that nothing that has a mass can ever reach the speed of light. And taking this statement as entirely complete, I deduce that it’s expressive of truth even in the spiritual sense- The frequency of the Universe is like the speed of light, that nobody can actually reach but can get closer to, like feeling the breeze of the whizzing whir, which we call the divine connection. To orbit around this spinning light is enough – it’s like the earth orbiting around the sun can feel its life giving warmth without the possibility of actually entering in to the massive ball of energy. Electricity is another example; circuits draw only the amount of current that a circuit can handle for its efficiency. That’s why I believe that the Universe has created man in its own image ( I differ with scientific claims in this context that matter can’t be created but I agree that our soul cannot be destroyed) in a way of blessing us with the same energy but in tiny measurement and when this baby dosage of energy is unleashed to its greatest potential it’s enough to manifest any possibilities in the physical life. Becoming ‘one with the creator’ or the Nirvana starts from where manifesting the worldly life stops and the Akal Purakh or the timeless Supreme being embraces the mortal life in its own fold ; I am not talking of death here either; its transformation of one’s entity instead- however, this is a topic for another time. So getting back to the purpose of this blog, the human beings can be wholly the Mass in Einstein’s theory as the matter is enhanced but can never become interchangeable with the speed of light.Now, staying true to my belief, I also draw a deviation from Einstein’s science at the last point – Mass cannot be interchangeable with ‘the’ energy either in the celestial plan. God has created a mini universe within me but I can never be the supreme Universe itself. Now, how to get into the vacuum to be swept up by the vibrating high frequency to be touched by the Universal energy ? Here I would stress once again that just by sitting our body in a yoga posture isn’t enough to raise our vibration, we need to make the mass of our body, mind and soul as one to the extent that the vibration thus caused becomes an innate part of our existence. So, sweep your mind of all the rubbish preconditions and focus. Meditate even when you see nothing, practise more if you fail to rein in the wild horses of thoughts, persevere and try again and again. Once you can only feel your focus on the desired purpose and nothing else, hold the moment and prolong the feeling of excitement. Practise regularly and when you are there, you’ll know it within and manifestation of your dreams will commence. At this stage, you’ll feel that you are always connected with the universe even while going about your daily life, like watching tele, taking a walk, cooking and so on. I’ll give you an example, today I received a positive text message from my sister about her being safe during the current lockdown and I was ‘silently’ thanking God within, while the family was watching a movie . Suddenly, my daughter asked me as to why I was smiling? I wasn’t even aware of it! When you are connected to the supreme energy through thoughts and feelings, the glow would reflect through you unawarely. I consider this connection as meditation with eyes open, however, I also meditate in the traditional sense to ground myself on daily basis. So, you have a choice. This self- training requires resilience and the progress is gradual in most cases. This is normal and accept it. It’s not as easy as many of the self-acclaimed LOA pundits make it sound- simply desire, expect and manifest! For more details you can refer to my previous blog ‘Law of Attraction started with frustrations and fears for me’. At first the voyage might seem like climbing a mountain, but with belief, determination and clear attentions, the mountain becomes a hill , then a little mound till you kick the last pebble with the support and strength blessed by the Omnipotent itself. So, how is this post relevant to my 40 candles vigil in the face of COVID-19? Well, we have the time and the opportunity as never before in life to practise for the ultimate success and once we can feel the warmth of the Universal sun, our life would be protected from plagues for ever after. Thus, start now and raise your vibration to receive the spiritual blessings. Join me to light the 27th candle for the holy guardianship.
Some say that the earth is healing while the plague is ravaging the mankind. May be in a simplistic way but I’d opt to differ as there’s a lot more to the act of Nature. We all are nature’s children, the birds, the reptiles and even the humans, however misguided their choices have been. But Universe is the parent of all the living and existing beings. So, suffering of its children can’t be healing for the one who bore them to life. Yes, the Universe is teaching the misgiven human sapiens but every time we deviate from our path the Universe comes finding us to guide us back on track. Universe is just being cruel to be kind in the long run, as any parent would tell you. The sooner we learn our lesson the quicker we get off the naughty step. We are in a shipwreck, where the man-captain has ordered to steer towards the iceberg. If any of our fellow beings who are letting us down, are the ones who sow the seeds to all this evil harvest- the imperceptive politicians and the befuddled money dealers! I have been disheartened and almost scared of some of their sinister plans amidst the plague aimed at saving money at the cost of lives. If the airline is grounded the chief would order the poor fleet to handle the virus without PPE or even training, while the bosses work from the safety of their homes, Representatives of the public push men and women to dare the plague in the name of being the key workers, while shamelessly asking for a monetary compensation for their own confinement to safety, and there are many more examples of such brazen actions by the immoral so- called leaders of the society all around the world. Well-being of a common man can’t rely on such soul- traders, but in the honesty, brotherhood, patience and determination in an average heart in every home, in every street and in every nation. This is an opportunity, the only time for the faceless men and women to get that recognition not for the medal of manmade gallantry but in the form of blessing from the omni-Sovereign, the Universe. Our hope lies in true chivalry of character, like Captain Tom, the key workers and every being that honestly clap in solidarity and gratitude to them. Mother Universe is testing her children, we must rise to her expectations this time. Restore our humanity and jump the sinking ship of capitalism as the shore to salvation is closer than we think. Our mother is suffering too to see her children hurt, so hurry and help to put an end to this global misery by believing that humans are humans so long they remain humane. Let us submit to the benevolent will of God rather than follow orders of the bumbledom to our own graves. Join me to light the 26th candle to our redemption.
Our world has come to a grinding halt. I am a witness to this disaster movie, streaming at me from all directions, I am intrigued watching the live news coverage, listening to our prime minister and other more alternative takes on this extra ordinary pause our earth has decided on. Yes, I know there have […]
I remember watching a documentary about a man who had predicted a plane crash that killed everyone on board. He claimed that he knew it would happen, because he had dreamed about it. On several occasions he had frantically called the airlines to warn them, but was of course not taken seriously. He had a […]
