It has been one of the misfortunes of our era
God has been defined by others
you always form an opinion even before you search God
God always starts with you
the moment you drop all your knowledge
then God begins his steps towards you
God is an experience
not an expression
Only your experience of God is right
rest are words open for translation!
When I am in my mind
I see greed, cunning, hatred, angry
when I am in my heart
I see Love, compassion, beauty,
I have both heart and mind
I can choose the one I want
If my mind is Devil
If my heart is God
then Devil and God must be in me!
I guess Devil Must be God!
otherwise How else I know the beauty of God!
Ego-Edging God Out
If you can accept yourself totally without any prejudice , belief or opinion then you have tremendous energy available to you. Most of your energy is consumed in proving yourself right at every opportunity. if you look at yourself, all your relations, your work and your dreams, they are nothing but one way street of what you want.
You are perfect as one can be and that’s because this creation is perfect. And everything created under this universe is perfect. Universe means one song : uni + verse.
The constant urge to prove yourself is ego. The constant need to form opinion on others is ego.
The ego has no interest in you. It is only interested in its existence. Ego’s existence is nothing but absence of awareness. It is not something that the ego can brag of It would like to go to the moon, which is not your birthright. Howsoever silly it will be, it would like to go to Everest. That is not your birthright, but the ego gets interested only in things which make you superior, higher, special, famous, celebrities. The ego is not interested in something which you are carrying with you from your very birth. It is interested in extraordinary things. The more difficult the job, the more the ego becomes interested in it. And enlightenment is the easiest thing in existence, the most natural. Hence, ego has no interest in it. This is how the problem arises. The moment a child is born, nobody is interested in the child’s nature, his potential, his possibilities of growth. Nobody is interested in the child’s birthright. Everybody is interested in making the child something very special — an Alexander the Great, a Beethoven, a Picasso, an Albert Einstein, a Mao Tse-tung — somebody who is going to be in history. Your mother, your father, your teachers, your priests, everybody is helping you to move away from yourself as much as possible. And this distance is the strength of your ego. The farther you are from yourself, the bigger is your ego.
simple way of reducing ego is allowing this universe ( you can call it God if you want) to work on you. only problem is you are so full of Ego that you have no place of Universe to define you and create miracles for you.
slow down little bit Accept yourself in whatever form, shape, behavior you are, You are as perfect as any other creation on this universe. Just allow silence to come in. Just allow universal energy to come inside you.
that’s why EGO is nothing but edging God out. the moment your Ego disappears then God comes in.
Meditation is art of dissolving Ego, Meditation is nothing but science of moving beyond ego.
Green represents freshness , life, Aliveness. Green reminds you of the language you have forgotten. Green represents that part of your life you ache for, Green is your calling.
For years in the name of concrete structures we have forgotten the art of working with nature. Just look at some of those buildings, you feel just nauseated by their presence.
Millions of people run to mountains, jungles, diving and other adventure sports because they feel expanded in the presence of nature. They carry so much energy from such trips it keeps them going for months. The moment such energy starts dissipating and burning out , they want to run again.
In nature, noise inside your head is reduced, in a day to day living you are constantly living in a reactive model. Wife, car, office, Money, relations all continuously keep stimulating one or the other thoughts inside your head. Something is constantly going in your head which sucks your energy.
The moment you land near mountains then your external stimulus comes to halt. With NO familiar sight to create thoughts in your head, first time you feel peaceful. Unimaginable serenity surrounds you.
This is what meditation is all about. Meditation is nothing but bringing you close to nature. Bringing you close to silence. Once you get the taste of silence you feel the same way as if in the midst of mountains. Going close to nature is a good way to start Inner journey. But that is not enough, the moment you comeback to day to day action you lose that serenity
Practice silence, Give yourself sometime to explore nature. Exploring nature your best chance to know life and yourself.
Taste of silence, just once is all you need, then Nature keeps calling you and Don’t die without answering the call of the valley!

Happiness requires that one be courageous. It is easy to be miserable, any coward can do that, it needs no talents, no guts, any impotent person can do it. But to be Happy needs guts, courage — courage to gamble, courage to risk, courage to go into the unknown. So only a very few courageous people attain to Happiness, because only a few people risk all for it.
People are so cowardly that they don’t even risk their misery for Happiness. They cling to misery. Out of fear they cling to anything, even misery will do; they have to cling to something. They don’t allow the misery to go: even if there are opportunities to drop it, they don’t drop it. They find a thousand and one excuses not to. Even if there are occasions when Happiness, is possible, it knocks on the door, they escape and hide.
To me, courage is one of the greatest character towards journey of unknown. Meditation is art of being courageous! Meditation is nothing but courage to move into unknown, into the uncharted, the unfamiliar…
