Law of Attraction: God created you, but it’s your responsibility to self develop




You’ll need to extend your hand to touch the light

The subject of our relationship with the Creator has been exhausted by various Philosophers and religious preachers, interpreting it in diverse ways. But for me, my curiosity wasn’t quenched until I experienced the emotions in my own heart.
In fact, my spiritual journey started with finding who was ‘Me’ and what God or Universe or Creator meant. The next segment of this journey was to discover the relationship between ‘Me’ and the ‘Creator of Me’. Creation is like a mother giving birth to a baby, a sculptor carving wood into a sculpture or a  painter painting the canvas, and so on and so forth. The closest analogy that resonated with me was the similarity between a mother and the creator. So, when I meditate I believe I am communicating with my Supreme mother, the Nirankar.  In fact, since the concept of the Supreme being is not gender-based; God is my spiritual parent- both the mother and the father.
Elaborating on the basis of the analogy described above, I shall continue to elucidate this relationship further. Imagine the parent coaching a child to ride a bike, after the initial push and support, the parent releases the child into the freedom of self-responsibility. In the same way, after a soul is reborn in a new body and takes the first independent step on the ground of his life, he walks on his two feet on the path he chooses for himself. Like a parent, the creator does guide and advise, but it’s up to the individual to adhere or not. That’s why it’s said that ‘God helps those who help themselves.’ The more one is receptive to Nirankar’s guidance, the safer our path would be. There’ll always be pebbles and holes on the road, but you could skirt around them without tripping or slipping.
Freedom of choice is our birthright, bestowed upon us by the Almighty Omnipotent. What we make of our life is based on the choices we make. To ensure that we’ve made the right choice, there’s only one supreme choice one could make, and the entire life would fall in place like a jigsaw puzzle – that is, Choose to listen to your conscious which is also the voice of the creator. Start with introspection and find your own self first, proceed to meditation to discover what and who is the supreme entity of your resonation, and then, believe in what you find. It’s an individual’s responsibility to develop own spiritual maturity, without which one is on a hamster’s wheel, running but reaching nowhere. Beyond that, it’ll be like floating on the Great salt lake, as God wouldn’t let you sink.
For more details about techniques to meditate and introspect, and about the concept of a Supreme Being, please refer to many of my other posts covering the subject matter.

Law of attraction: Correlation between Belief and Expectation


I believe in God’s generosity to ‘give’, and I expect to receive this generosity – sound like a familiar thought? Of course, it’s what most of us feel and why such a craze about the Law of Attraction! We believe, we expect and we get…..hang on, not so fast. LOA might work miracles in our lives, but is certainly no magic trick, whatever the media gurus and coaches claim, frankly.
So what does it mean? In my spiritual experience, the expectation is the consequence of belief, and what we manifest is a direct result of our belief plus expectation ‘beyond any doubt’.
Belief is confidence, positivity, and trust- in what is;  Expectation is a calculation, projection, and assurance- of what should be: I believe in myself to desire right, the Universe (God) to give right, and because of my belief I should receive right.    
However convincing this theory might be, it’s after all a science- a Law. So, there’s a plan and discipline involved in its execution.  First I need to be absolutely sure about the thought that the power of the Omnipotent is real. ‘Only’ then would I be motivated to invest morally strong karma in order to build my expectations from the Omnipotence of the Almighty. God is generous but am I worthy of receiving the blessings? Expectations take time to take hold in the soil of your faith. The science starts with meditation and meditation starts with introspection. One needs to nurture the trust in God/ Nirankar with righteous thoughts first, which would beget virtuous actions. The definition of virtuous action is subjective. For example, it might mean selfless service towards others only, but for me, it means ‘charity begins at home’, i.e. Me. After all, it’s my belief, my expectation, my life. Others do matter but fall in place once I sort my own mindset. I would also stress the fact that action is the bridge between the belief and the expectation.
Thence, Belief is the primary foundation on which one should build Expectation, gradually. To summarise, I start with a growing belief in God ‘beyond doubt’- this is imperative or the miracle won’t work. Consequently, I would be motivated and influenced to ‘do right’ by myself first and then the community by default since my action/karma would be morally justified.
The third step of evolution would be to build expectation, i.e. confidence in receiving returns, ‘beyond doubt. It’s at this third step that the Law of Attraction is fully charged and desire is ready to manifest.
Those who expect without constructing belief, are building a castle in the air.

LOA: The difference between hope and belief


Let me start with my own example- when I am hopeful, I feel like in the waiting room of dreams, and I can’t wait for my name to be called out to see Dr. Make-believe. I am sure many, many fellow human beings could relate to that, which would help to appreciate this post 😁. Some time ago, I had a mansion, a clean chit of health, family unity, success in writing, etc., etc. on my hopeful list. Familiar? Hope so. These were my wishful thoughts, my bucket list, my immature enthusiasm! Let me add, sadly LOA didn’t move an inch in my favour. Result? Frustration and disappointment. Then, the mind was compelled to chisel such thoughts into shape, take time to sculpture beautiful thoughts; not mass produce ideas in the clouds. I had learnt to ‘think’, which taught me ‘feel’ right too. The mansion became a comfortable home, which I could share with my family harmoniously; I started this blog site to give expression to my thoughts, rather than just jotting down a few thoughts in my private notebook; I joined gym and took responsibility for what goes in my mouth. Once, I put myself in the driving seat of life, I started to believe in the route I was taking to forward my life. I BELIEVED in what I did and I found how much love and happiness was already around me. Enjoying what I already had, made me believe in what I could have in the future. This is when LOA was activated. My desires were grounded ( I have already written substantially about ‘how’ to desire in other posts) and this made my belief stronger in manifestation of what I wished for. It started coming true. Though I don’t live in a mansion, so to speak, but I live in most satisfying congeniality with my lovely family. I might not be a superwoman, but I am very active. I might not be successful as JK Rowling, but I enjoy what I write and share with the beautiful like-minded souls. My belief supported the ‘real’ source of home, dream, love, and health; recognising this reality made my belief stronger in return. It’s a mighty bond. So, as you can see, my hope matured to become my belief and I’ve never let any wish wander astray since.
* I am at the editing stage of my upcoming book, emancipating so many intricate formulae and tricks hiding within each one of us, to exercise LOA successfully ever after. I haven’t finalised the title yet but working on it. I ‘believe’ that I would share it soon with all of you, ‘hopefully’.*

Spills from life: Everything that shines is not Gold, Democracy for example.


The term, Democracy is derived from the Greek word, dēmokratia, where demos mean ‘people’ and Kratos mean ‘rule’. Athenian democracy developed around the fifth century B.C.E. Admittedly, the Greek idea of democracy was different from the present-day understanding of the concept because, in Athens, all adult citizens were required to take an active part in the government; hence ‘Rule by the People’.
         However, over the many passing clouds, the literal meaning of the word remained the same, but its socio-political interpretations changed with every new chapter in the history of mankind- World Wars tipped the political powers on the map, Industrial revolution took a bad turn to monopolise the rule of Corporates globally, Consumerism became more than a recreational drug to become an addiction, Colonisation personified Globalisation, The cries of global warming fell on cold consciouses, Pandemic has become a political football where goal-post keeps moving for the data and stats, etc., etc., and mankind is in perpetual quarantine inside the pigeon holes of disparities. Consequently, we feel isolated in our ‘differences’ with others. GMT has engineered a mix of hatred for one another, and we feed on it voluntarily, or so we think.  
           So, you see, subsequently, the power of the rule was taken from people and claimed by a few in the modern definition of democracy. Hang on, isn’t that close to monocracy? Or absolutism? Of course, this is a satirical democracy – A myth created to amuse masses, while the real rulers suck the oxygen from the atmosphere around them. Wait a minute, is that what pollution does? Of course! The progeny of the Industrial Revolution – the sulphur factories eroding the monument of love, called the Taj Mahal- a symbol of love fading away in human society. A profitable and manipulative scheme by the real rulers of the world.    
            Democracy has changed the names of the real rulers over the course of history – from Kings/Queens to Colonisers to Slave Masters to the present-day Politicians. Whatever the name, it’s the same DNA. The ingenuity of polity or the establishment has been inventing many schemes to manipulate the masses (who are officially referred to as citizens now, not subjects in democratic rule). The most dexterous plan has been to induce a spectrum of hatred in our vision: colour, class, creed, sexuality, physical appearance, thoughts, are all seen as diverse shades of hatred; and in a few countries, there is another ingenious division that been created – i.e. caste system. All this drama to make democracy seem real and all wrongs be blamed on the common man himself – wow! Villainy, but with such sophistication- just giving the devil his due!    
            Anyway, rather than write a history of different mutations of democracy, I would like to refer to an incident which took place recently in the capital of the so-called biggest Democracy in the world to prove the debate in this post, showing all the shades of the spectrum of hatred at the ground level of society – Yes, it’s an incident which took place India, where a 20 year old woman was punished by being gang raped, tortured, and then her head shaven and face blackened, then paraded in the streets, because she didn’t entertain the advances of a teenager boy in her locality! The attack was instigated and carried out by the family of the teenage boy, who had committed suicide due to rejection by the young lady. The most shocking bit here is not just the sexual attack and public humiliation, but the fact that the WOMEN ( apparently related to the teenage boy) joined in beatings and cheering the men in their abuse of the helpless woman! It might or might not be relevant to add that the victimised woman belonged to the minority community of Sikhs, and the family was from the majority populace of Hindus. Whether there was or not a religious-based motivation for hatred in this case, one thing is clear- the family and mob involved in this attack proves that the democratic ‘right of expression’, however animalistic it might be, is blessed by the Socio- judicial machinery of modern day democracy! That can be seen in the fact that the Police force remained passive and inactive, till the political necessity during the local election time compelled them to make a few token belated arrests. Humanity was already raped, injured, and paraded naked in the streets of democracy. It makes perplexes me when books still defy reality to describe democracy as ‘rule of the people’ and ‘by the people’!!
             This is anarchy and mobocracy, but why do the real rulers, the new world monarchs, the politicians, the slave masters fuel the fire of such lawlessness? Because this is how autonomy for the real rulers can be enforced – People punish each other and gnaw at humaneness. This also keeps them busy and focused in misdirection; leaving all the freedom of so-called democracy for the real rulers of the world.
              Enough said, and I would like to finish at a hopeful note…..well, a spark perhaps….ok, a dim but certainly an amber of hope. There are still few homo sapiens left, who believe in justice and protests around the world for the Rights of the masses. The recent farmers’ protest in India which brought the  rigid regime to its knees, certainly a great attempt to resuscitate the dying (original) democracy, the protests around the world to raise the voice that ‘Black life matters’ has been certainly a glimpse of real democracy, every drop of blood that trickled from the veins of the protesters defy the autocratic- imposter -democracy’s truncheons, no knee on the neck could suffocate the whole mankind; because there always be those awakened men and women who would refuse to toe the line leading to the demise of the human race.
              Any attack on a vulnerable woman, child, man, or animal is an attack on humanity itself. Human beings are defined by two words put together- ‘man’ + ‘kind’. Without kindness, mankind is incomplete and with an incomplete entity, wholesome democracy can’t be built.    
             Just to add to the incident mentioned above, a Sikh group from Punjab has gone to Delhi not only to protest against the filthy act but also to raise awareness that silence too is participation in rape. Keep up your efforts people. Know your Rights and obligations, understand the difference between anarchy and freedom, have mutual respect for one another, observe what separates a human being from a beast. There is a great need, which is on the increase rapidly, to support each other to become a better person, through own example. There is no utopia, but if we as decent people unite, the democratic machinery could be persuaded and compelled to act by the people, work for the people, and deliver justice to the masses.
The global mass of people need to collaboratively fight against what we’ve become and support each other to return to the decent core we were supposed to be. It’s a war worth every battle. Claim back the real democracy, a sign of being truly civilised.
               Please join me to support every victim of rape, every human being exploited, every child being neglected, and every animal being abused.
