Thursday Thoughts

Where is the Heaven?

My friend, don’t waste your time searching for Heaven.

There is no specific address to Heaven or Hell.

Remember Heaven resides in your brain.

Surprisingly the same brain has also another occupant by the name ‘Hell’

Now it’s up to you to decide who loves you more, which depends on your inward reaction to outward events.

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven” John Milton

Many argue that Heaven & Hell are religious concepts.

And the law of Karma allows you to experience both Heaven and Hell.

What is the real Heaven?

“Whenever we manage to love without expectation, calculations, negotiations, we are indeed in Heaven”  Rumi

Sadly neither we love truly nor give true love equally.

Everybody talks big about love whatever may be the type of love, but none sticks to the reason for which they loved in the very beginning.

What exactly is Hell?

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here” William Shakespeare 

Some said once you are born, you are into hell.

In other words, Hell is nothing but your life on the Earth.

Leading one’s life has become a tough job and one is never happy, and some said death is the ultimate Heaven.

I don’t know what exactly they are trying to convey.

Maybe it’s real or maybe it’s an emotional outburst…

We leave it to them.

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

“There are only two things to worry about, either you are well or you are sick.

If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about.

If you are sick, there are two things to worry about, either you will get well or you will die.

If you get well there is nothing to worry about.

If you die, there are two things to worry about, either you will go to heaven of hell.

If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about.

But if you go to hell, you’ll be so damn busy shaking hands with your friends.

You won’t have time to worry!!”   Unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Just another day in a False Paradise

“A fool’s paradise is wise man’s hell” Thomas Fuller

This flower is known by the name ‘False bird of Paradise’

Another name is Lobster Claw Flower. The name “Lobster Claw” comes from the shape of its flower bracts. which resemble the shape of a lobster’s claw.

Why it’s called False Bird Of Paradise?

Because it mimics the original bird of paradise flower.

How does the original bird of paradise look?

This flower gets its name because the flower is made up of three bright orange petals and three blue petals which are fused into a single bud. As the flower blooms, the petals start showing a shape that simulates a bird in flight.

Where do you find the real paradise?

“I found paradise, not in Heaven, but deep in my heart”  Debasish Mridha MD

Thank you.

Friendly Friday-Unusual

Cambridge English Dictionary defines ‘unusual’ as 

Different from others of the same type in a way that is surprising, interesting, or attractive.

Different from what is usual or expected.

Simply put it either uncommon or not normal.

I shall show you Two Images which I felt unusual.

V symbol on the icy mountain

“When God steps in Miracles happen”    Unknown

In the above photograph

You can notice the ice formation resembling the letter ‘V’. I can’t imagine how this ‘V’ symbol formed in the first place, on this mountain, extending from top to bottom.

Can you explain to me whether it’s physics or chemistry or geology etc or you think it can’t be explained ??

Is this not God’s way of showing V for Victory sign? ( my apologies to atheists ). His Victory over mankind !!” Just a reminder probably, because humans have become too arrogant !!

The rule is, “God always wins ” Never argue or question Almighty’s decisions and try to score brownie points and become a fool and a highly qualified ignorant!

This Image taken in Tromso,Norway.

In the image below…

You can notice Heaven amid the sea, and some kind hearted soul has arranged a comfortable chair for you to sit with a mini lawn and a Palm tree for shade.

What are you waiting for? Remember… in the photo,I have not covered the sorrounding beautiful icy mountains.

It’s a Heaven for those who hail from countries where the temparature ranges from hot,hotter to hottest.

It’s not your dream world! It’s your real world !!

Chain in the sea

“It’s the possibility of having the dream come true that makes life interesting”   Paulo Coelho

The above photo too taken in Tromso,Norway.I am not sure probably it’s part of Romssanuorri strait.Norwegian readers can correct me.

This post is in response to Friendly Friday Challenge-  Unusual

Thank you Amanda for the inspiration.Don’t miss to check out her beautiful blog.

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Does free will exist ?

Free will

Free will carried many a soul to Hell,but never a soul to Heaven Charles Spurgeon

It’s a 3.5 minute read.

What is free will ?

According to Cambridge Dictionary, it’s ‘the ability to decide what to do independently of any outside influence’

Is your free will is a choice or is it predetermined ?

I am sure it is predetermined.

It’s a complicated and confusing subject for a short discussion but I make it simpler by some basic examples.

  • When you were born you couldn’t choose your parents.
  • Neither you gave your free will to your parents.
  • Neither you could choose your gender or even color.
  • Being born,physically challenging is not because you choose this.
  • Your parents decided your siblings
  • Your parents decided your schooling and not you.
  • Your joining a college,getting a degree,getting employment,your salary are all decided by somebody else.
  • You being a good or bad character is decided by your status of ‘Karma’.
  • You are governed by the laws of your country.
  • If you are a religious person,you can’t go against scriptures.
  • Diseases entertain you uninvited and overwhelms you with complications.
  • At any given part of your life, you are dependent on somebody for something.
  • Your very thoughts in your brain are because of some unknown factors influencing your intellect.
  • Even marriages are made in Heaven
  • You being fertile or barren is not in your hands.
  • Your choice of food is determined by un-explainable triggers from your brain.
  • You develop bad habits,because of somebody or some problem…not because of your free will.
  • Your habits are forced upon you by your thoughts from un-explainable chemical forces acting on your mind.
  • You don’t die out of free will.Suicides too happen because of some situations,not because of free will. If I go a step beyond humans…
  • Why Planets never deviate their path ?

The ‘free will’ which you think to possess is nothing but your ‘perception’.

Then why are you not in a mood to accept the fact that there is no such thing as ‘Free will’ ?

At least try to live happily….the life given to you by the Almighty, since by now I convinced you about your claim of ‘Free will’

“Free will is an illusion. People always choose the perceived path of greatest pleasure”. Scott Adams

What is that I am trying to impress ?

Whatever you do in your life time is ‘Predetermined’.This is law of universe.Every step you take is based on Action-Reaction principle depending on your Karma.

In other words when you feel that you are doing things at your free will,remember this thought of yours( free will ) is based on some unknown forces acting on your brain to think that way.Simply put ‘ Free will ‘ is a MAYA ( illusion).

You are only fooling yourself if you think that Free will is at your disposal.

“Nothing in the universe happens by chance or accident.The universe is a coherent concurrence and interaction of innumerable conditions attendant on the infinite number of energy patterns.

In the state of awareness,all this is obvious and can be clearly seen and known.

Outside that level of awareness,it could be likened to innumerable,invisible magnetic fields which automatically coalesce or repel one’s position and which interact according to the positions and relative strengths and polarities.Everything influences everything else and is in perfect balance. David R.Hawkins

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

On the Way to Hell

On the way to hell

May be this World is another planet’s Hell   ‘Aldous Huxley’

Scenes like the above photograph are very common in India on the occasions of major festivals.
What do you think of the ‘ thoughts ‘ of these creatures of God as they are led to the Butchers knife ? The animals are so trusting and just don’t know what’s in store.

I have come across an interesting organisation based in UK.

Wife & Husband -Can’t they be best friends for life ?

Marriages are made in Heaven 

Do you agree ? or it’s a Myth ?

Those who believe in this, say that,

It was God himself,who united a man and a woman in marriage ( Gen 2:24 ) Marriage therefore is a divine institution,not a human one ( Mat 19:6 ).Consequently God,not man, has the right to define,the terms of the institution.   Jay Adams

And the explanations given are……

1. There is a Cosmic Power that is responsible for the actions of people and marriage is decided even before one is born.

2 .Marriage is 100 % destined since it is under the influence of the Almighty.

3. Whether it is arranged marriage or Love marriage,the same Cosmic power is deciding the events to be unfolded for the perfect Date of the marriage

Those who don’t believe in the proverb have plenty of explanations,as to where the Almighty has utterly failed.

Some of the important questions put by them…

1.If the proverb is true,why there are so many Divorces,so frequently ?

Just check this advertisement.I am not joking.

For Sale: Wedding gown Worn once by mistake.Call Leslie

Divorce happening at the drop of a hat.Causes extending from silly reasons to financial problems to infidelity to substances of abuse…….you name it..it’s there and can lead to divorce.

2 .Domestic violence

  • Physical Violence
  • throwing
  • Beating
  • Slapping
  • Hitting
  • Biting
  • Kicking
  • Punching
  • Pushing
  • Shoving
  • Causing body injury or pain in any other manner

 

Less said better,since these things are happening in so called developed world,developing world and underdeveloped world.

3.Couple incompatibility

“Are you a compatible couple ?

Compatibility comes from Latin Compati,meaning’to suffer with”If you are not willing to suffer with someone until death do you part.then you are not compatible”  @Jasonevert

No two persons are the same.even if you think that they are same in their interests and personalities ,still their individual reactions to the demanding situations vastly vary.

4. Ego clash

“I have never yet met with anything that was dearer to any one than his own self”  Buddha

“The only person I’ll marry is myself.Believe me,my ego is that big ”  Maxbeesley

No body can help if one is not able to avoid Egoistic attitude

5. Couple in illusion mode

Don’t rush to fall in love,because even in fairy tales,the happy ending takes place in the last page   Jarofquotes.com

Many of us believe in Hollywood or Bollywood version of romance,passion,sex,hero kissing the heroine,lots of colorful fireworks in the background,decorated Horse,waiting for the couple,forever romance and happy endings.

There is enormous difference between living ‘Happily ever after andHappily ever before ‘

“So they were married ,to be the more together and found that they were never again so much together Divided by the morning tea, By the  evening paper,By children and tradesmen’s bills”. Louis MacNiece   

One has to face the reality . Things are different-,like arrival of children,loans,dealing with in laws,unnecessary fighting’,controlling anger etc.etc.

6.Extra Marital Affairs

Call it middle age crisis or fun and after a few years of married life ,people get bored,loose passion for love and start searching for new ways to get boost to their sexual need.These are occasions when one needs self control.

Ultimately Who are we to question the Wisdom of the God ?

My feeling is,to let wife & husband recognize all their strengths and Weaknesses and be helpful to each other and their family at the same time knowing and even realizing the Greatness of what is known as Institution of Marriage

“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Happy couples

A Happy relationship is made up of two good Forgivers

Behind every happy couple, lies two people who have fought hard to overcome all obstacles and interference be that way .Why ?? Because it’s what they wanted. ‘  unknown

Marriages are mad in Heaven

Glad,You reached this point .Kindly share your views and ideas on ‘Institution of Marriage’

Thank you. Namaste  🙏🙏🙏
