God - Still Uncomprehended.

How do theists maintain their belief in God? God’s existence has not been proven. When someone is highly confused about a situation in his life, he thinks of God as the last resort. Then what happens? Does a belief in God charges up his mind and he’s able to find a way out of that troublesome situation? So is it the invisible power of God which makes him realize a probable solution to that problem or just by trusting God his mind is free from stress and thus he is able to find out a solution.

So is belief in God more of a mental healing than a divine entity? That’s why they say that a Doctor is like a God, though the doctor gets the illness rid out of you but in the former case when you rely on God your mood changes, it relaxes and then you are able to craft out a solution. Isn’t it similar to someone else doing some work for you?

Most of the people remember God only in troublesome situation or at the time of daily prayer. Then why do some religious fanatics pray for all day long? Is the relationship with God a tool to remove the ever present loneliness each human being possesses? One always feels lonely at some level because of exclusivity of his thoughts which he can’t share with even the closest person in his life. And thoughts if kept inside ferment aggressively. So, to share those thoughts, is God just a medium. Or when he speaks to himself is he talking to God. Is that the reason they say that God resides within us?

God has always been a mystery and will always be.

The Game

What is the most beautiful thing on this earth? Or may be in the whole universe? Everyone would answer this differently but I guess it would be innumerable mysteries which nature beholds. We often talk about greatest inventions mankind has made from ‘The Wheel’ to the latest ‘Cloud Computing’ but their sheer actualization is a result of human mind’s capacity to unravel the mysterious nature.

It feels like God has created a great treasure hunt and we, the humans, are a part of this game. Our endeavour is to unfold each clue, each treasure and give it a shape. The wheel uses the concept of Mass, equilibrium and motion, all a natural phenomena. In this never ending conquest of finding something new, Man has evolved. They say that world will come to an end in 2012. I believe it to be untrue. As any other treasure hunt, the game ends when you find the ultimate treasure. So what could be the ultimate treasure in this game set up by GOD? Could it be realizing the existence of GOD? Probably yes probably No. One can never tell.

Likes, Dislikes and Time

Each person has his own set of likings. One would like listening to rock music, eat at a roadside food stall and have an outing at a crowded place. Another would love listening to soft instrumentals, eat at calm and secluded place. What drives our likings? Why someone likes a particular thing and dislikes other? What causes someone to like something? Is the reason scientific? Probably the psychologists would reason that but by thinking on this matter on an alternate plane, one can infer that every entity is liked by someone. So, nothing is good and evil. If one can manoeuvre one’s brain mechanism of liking and disliking wouldn’t all things seem to be so fine and one would feel so much of goodness happening around oneself.

Isn’t that when one dislikes or disregards something, one is giving that entity the same intensity of thought, emotion, time and energy and in return obtains a bad state of mood. If one is giving so much, in return shouldn’t one get the benefits proportionately? Is man a fool then? Or is he flooded by his negative thoughts to such an extent that his prudence judgement becomes defunct? The devil side of the brain is the man’s worst enemy.

Suppose you give ten minutes of your time to think about someone/thing whom/which you dislike. In return you are in a bad mood. Also, your physical health might get affected though it could not be visible. Alternatively if you would have invested these ten minutes in something which makes you feel happy, you would have got so much in return. I randomly point out some of the tasks which would make me feel happy and which could be completed within a ten minute period:

• Listening to two of your current favourite tracks – it always cheers you up (unless you haven’t just broken off a relationship and listening to sad numbers)
• Having an ice-cream
• Googling some mind-boggling article
• Watching some interesting video on youtube
• Sprinting for 10 mins
And many more... the list is endless, depends on one’s choice.

It all depends on how one invests his time. Time is money they say. So, investing it in the right scheme will reap the right benefits for you. So, if one is concerned about money why not time?

Mr. Black and Mr. White

Every person’s mind is partitioned in two compartments. I call it Mr. Black and Mr. White. How a person’s personality is developed depends on the dominance of one of the compartment over another. Mr. Black is the one who is all bad, thinks bad, engulfed with pleasures which supposedly have a bad affect on oneself. Mr. Good is the one who thinks right, knows what is just. He has all the right knowledge and right thinking process.
The degree of mixture of these two personalities determines how well a person behaves or conducts him/her. For majority Mr. Black has dominance over Mr. White.
How Success depends on the degree of this mixture?
We all know what is right for us? What we shall be doing? Yet we don’t perform those actions. Why? Mr. White is a feeble. On the other hand, Mr. Black has an attractiveness, which our mind clings to. We behave like a mouse following the Pide Piper in Mr. Black. The dominance of Mr. White is the secret of achieving whatever one wants to achieve.
But Mr. B is a very powerful fellow. What are his aides? Our desires, fancies and whims. Mr W has nothing as an aide. His sole aide is Will-Power which in itself is miniscule in comparison to Mr. B’s aides. So, the battle is always won by Mr. B. But what makes Mr. W win in certain situations over Mr. B? Some incident, some trigger which makes Mr. W so powerful that makes Mr B a nobody. The trigger is the catalyst for Mr. W.
One needs to magnify Mr W. How? Simply following what he preaches. It’s tough. So, how to make it simple? By simultaneously feeding to Mr. B’s demands. Continuously reducing the supply to Mr. B’s demands. Abruptly stopping supply to Mr. B’s demand would not be fruitful in the longer run. Mr. B is a demon. One fine day you will be back to being servile to Mr. B. One needs to make fool of Mr. B by continuously reducing the supply as said earlier. Later at some point of time Mr. B will die its natural death. It might take a longer time but it will happen. Without a trigger event, I believe this is the best way to change the dominance dynamics.

We celebrate pain.

Humans celebrate pain. We love cherishing our pain, sorrow and grievance in our subconscious state of mind. Even a love story turns out to be great when it is about unrequited love. Why one loves to be in pain? I believe sorrow, as an emotion, needs to be shared while happiness can be cherished all alone. Sharing our sorrows, pain with someone makes us feel wanted. Bad times and bad situation makes the bonding between two people stronger. Sharing happiness doesn’t create the same effect.

Time is an illusion.

I visited a shop which deals with different brands of watch and clock. One of my friend had to get his watch repaired. He was busy in getting his watch repaired and i was curiously introspecting all the clocks at the shop. I was intrigued by the visual and i could see a lot of time infront of me. I got engulfed in my thoughts about time and what it really means. How it affects us? I observed that TIME does NOT exist. One says TIME is the fourth dimension but there is actually no such thing as TIME.TIME originated because of the natural phenomena of MOTION. We derive and quantify time on the basis of the revolution of earth. Earth revolves and thus we've managed to define time. So the things which defines everything are matter,space and MOTION. MATTER when goes MOBILE(read motion) creates time. So the fourth dimension has to be mobility.And so TIME is an illusion. Though i had a lot of time to ponder over this thought and that too being immobile.

Mam! we have this unique package to offer you..... Sorry not interested

Today, is the day, I guess i won’t ever forget in my life. As a part of a business exercise, we were supposed to go to Koregaon Park and find a job for ourselves with a minimum emolument of 150 bucks. We were formed into a team of two. Me and my group member, Anitha formed a group. We had a restriction that we had to commute only by taking lift-rides.
So, the day began. We just went out and realized there are 30 odd groups searching for a lift in a car. How the hell would we be able to get the lift man!! Suddenly i realized that we can go separately on bikes. Luckily we had a scooty halting at our side and i asked Anitha to go as further as she can. Within a second i got a lift too but that was for an intermediary stop. I was looking for a second lift when this cool dude came on his bajaj avenger. Long hair, stubble and loose jeans. I rode pillion. We were chatting about this and that suddenly he raised his speed and was driving at 100-110 ferociously. I closed my eyes. I said “Either i am reaching Koregaon park today or I am gonna be in a park where God must be going for a jog”. Finally i reached KP as God was too busy to go for a jog ;). And soon came Anitha.
The day being Sunday, the KP was closed completely. Now this is gonna be one hell of a task. I felt. So, now our day started and we went to each and every damn shop/organisations/kirana shops/ beauty clinics/ medical shops/ real estates/ broking services/ call centres and etc. We were getting continuous rejection but our enthusiasm didn’t die. Here i would list all the places where we went to ask for a job.
Kaya Skin Clinc
Facetoface dental clinic
Pizza hut.
Keune hair salon
Astha Realtors
Shelters property consultants
Chand placement consultants.
Ryan interiors.
Club Mahindra holidays
And finally the destination ...our employer ‘The Nun’. Prior to our getting a job, every where we looked out for, I had the same dialogue every time. “Good morning sir! We are students, We are looking for a job for a day . We can offer promotional services for your organisation, or a survey to be done, or any in house jobs or any other job if you have”. Every other guy said i don’t have the authority or you will have to speak to our manager who was no where to be found.
Chand placement service had an interesting case to offer. The sir at the organisation stated he had no jobs to offer and started cribbing about how there is a scarcity of jobs in the market. He was busy in bulshitting the IT sector for being the cause. And we were already running out of time. Politely i said, ‘Thanks sir for giving us your precious time’. Though it was the other way round ;).
Finally we landed at the NUN clothes shop and we were employed. They had a unique offer which they explained to us. And our job was to get the forms filled up for them defining how good the offer was. I formed a dialogue again”Mam! Can i have a minute of yours. We are from NUNs and we are offering this offer where in .....this and thai...this and that ...”. We heard numerous rejections.
The multiplex authority got annoyed with us and we were not supposed to provide any services inside the building. We moved outside and were just running from adlabs to the bridge near by to the road ahead of kalyani veg looking for females who could help us in achieving our targets.
Finally we were able to make around 40 members for the NUNs with me just on a breakfast and Anitha just on a glass of water(Kudos for that!! )
I really appreciated the way Anitha performed, riding pillion doning a saree, taking a lift independently in a car. Kudos to her.
Finally we came back and my legs are paining like hell. AND we have an assignment to complete.
I am loving this.
