Lie & Life go together !

  Every body lies .Yes even You. That is the truth. Can you keep your Right hand on your heart and say you never lie ? We lie even to ourselves !! Our world is full of liars!! Parents to their children,children to their parents,Friend to another friend,Husband to wife vice versa,Lovers to each other,superior to subordinate and subordinate to superior.People lie to doctors,to lawyers,to relatives,you name it,at every stage one is lying to others depending on the circumstances. The day is incomplete  if you don’t lie ! And what about Surveys ,the Researchers undertake  to know the pulse of the people? Are they getting the truthful  response ? How about our dependence  on Google for A  to Z queries ? Are you getting the accurate reply? Then why on the Earth you expect others to be Honest ?? Is this not the best example of ‘Double Standard’ ? Nicholas Sparks says lie is a part of living. “Because everybody lies, It’s part of living in society. Don’t get me wrong-I think it’s necessary. The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails. Can you imagine the conversations? You’re short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know. But you smell bad, It just wouldn’t work. So people lie by omission all the time. People will tell you most of the story…and I’ve learned that the part they neglect […]

Does your mind wander during prayers ?

  Are you able to concentrate on God and Just God alone and pray without any thoughts interfering the prayers ? 1.Are you the one doing just lip movements while praying,but wander in a different world full of one thought jumping over to the next? 2.This split second intrusion of your thoughts (whether negative or positive) during prayers really haunting you ? Is this making you guilty ? If it is so, believe me …..you are not alone. Is it because our brains have multiple components,each doing different jobs in quick succession, thus making us, difficult to concentrate ? Are these intrusive thoughts, a basic human nature ? ( since we can not stop thoughts from the brain) Can you control your mind when you are already burdened with your ‘Life’ ? (burden of life is a reality for all of us). Is it possible to override these thoughts ? How to solve this problem ? So many questions…..but I am finding very difficult to get one perfect answer (though plenty of answers are available on the net,which I am not convinced) which helps to really concentrate on God nothing but God . I don’t have an answer.Do you have one ? Please guide me. Some say Meditation helps “The goal of meditation is not to control your thoughts,it is to stop letting them control you” theageofenlightement Again I am not sure of Meditation and how it can help control […]

Being human has to come first before right or wrong”. –Matisyahu 2.The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement.  But the opposite of a profound truth may well be […]

We see What we want to see & feel great about ourselves…. (and love to remember the Almighty only during agony)

In the recent discussion in blog articles about ‘Truth’ and meaning of ‘Absolute truth’ and ‘Relative truth, I realized that we forgot to discuss the role of ‘Maya’ ( illusion). Recently I came across an article in op ed of Deccan Chronicle,and thought it’s apt to understand the meaning of Maya  (illusion),in our day to day life’ by sharing the same . Before we proceed further, you should know that Sudama, is a childhood friend of Hindu Deity Lord Krishna. One day Sudama wished to have a glimpse of God’s Maya (illusion). He had heard a lot about Maya but never understood what it was as he was always surrendered to God. One day, he finally asked Lord Krishna, “What is Maya? What is the form of Maya? How does Maya untangle a man?” He directly sought answers of these questions from Lord Krishna and kept requesting him to show a glimpse of Maya. Lord Krishna replied that when time comes he shall give him the answers and also show him Maya. Then he said, “Let us go to Yamuna to take bath.”  Both of them came to the banks of Yamuna to take bath. After taking bath, Lord Krishna started dressing in Yellow and in the meantime Sudama went to take a dip in water. At the time of taking dip, Sudama felt that the river was flooded and he was being washed away in it. With great difficulty, by […]
