The enterprise must be held to be under an obligation to provide that the hazardous or inherently dangerous activity in which it is engaged must be conducted with the highest standards of safety and if any harm results on account of such activity, the enterprise must be absolutely liable to compensate for such harm and it should be no answer to the enterprise to say that it had taken all reasonable care and that harm occurred without any negligence on its part. Since the persons harmed on account of the hazardous or inherently dangerous activity carried on by the enterprise would not be in a position to isolate the process of operation from the hazardous preparation of substance or any other related element that caused the harm, the enterprise must be held strictly liable for causing such harm as a part of the social cost for carrying on the hazardous or inherently dangerous activity. If the enterprise is permitted to carry on a hazardous or inherently dangerous activity for its profit the law must presume that such permission is conditional on the enterprise absorbing the cost of any accident arising on account of such hazardous or inherently dangerous activity as an appropriate item of its overhead. Such hazardous or inherently dangerous activity for private property can be tolerated only on the condition that the enterprise engaged in such activity indemnifies all those who suffer on account of the carrying on of such activity regardless of whether it is carried on carefully or not. This principle is also sustainable on the ground that the enterprise alone has the resource to discover and guard against hazards or dangers and to provide warning against potential hazards.”ସୁରକ୍ଷା ସପ୍ତାହ ଅବସରରେ ସମସ୍ତଙ୍କୁ ସୁରକ୍ଷିତ ରହିବା ପାଇଁ ଶୁଭେଚ୍ଛା ଜ୍ଞାପନ କରିବା ସହିତ ବିଶ୍ବ ବିଖ୍ୟାତ ବୈଜ୍ଞାନିକ ଆଲବର୍ଟ୍ ଆଇନଷ୍ଟାଇନଙ୍କର ଏକ ଉକ୍ତି ସହିତ ଆଜିର ଆଲୋଚନା ସାଂଗ କରୁଛି-“Concern for man himself and his safety must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavours.

Emptiness - In Gita Verse 3.11 The demigods, being pleased by sacriﬁces, will also please you, and thus, by cooperation between men and demigods, prosperity will reign for all.Krishna is saying to Arjuna that if you act from your subjectivity you will not be alone, many demigods will help you for this act. But if you are stuck in the objective world and want to act from objective world then you are alone, you will not get any support from demigods.When you act from your subjectivity you are connected with universe. You may feel that through your body you took action but at that time the whole universe has used your body for particular action. You are not alone, the whole is with you. Combination of your body and universe at that time carry that action. This action is for growth and benefits of everyone around you.We are not familiar with our subjectivity, we are only familiar with our objective world, we feel that when we are in objective world we are together. This is the illusion we have as we are not introduced ourselves with our subjectivity. Our subjectivity is very alive, full, whole. During the day many times we have realized that some kind of emptiness in us. This is our subjectivity, we get scared as we are not familiar with that emptiness. This is our connection with the universe. But as we are only familiar with objective world we feel that emptiness is alone. But it is not true.Once you recognized it, become familiar with it then - Slowly slowly, you see that emptiness is not just emptiness; it is fullness, but the fullness of which you have never been aware, a fullness of which you have never tasted.So in the beginning it looks empty; in the end it is full, totally full, over flowingly full. It is full of peace, it is full of silence, it is full of light.There are only two ways of living in life. One is to live it from the very core of your being, from your subjectivity — that has been the way of the mystics. Meditation is nothing but a device to make you aware of your real self, your emptiness — which is not created by you, which need not be created by you, which you already are. You are born with it, you ARE it! It needs to be discovered. If this is not possible, or if the society does not allow it to happen…and no society allows it to happen, because the real self is dangerous — dangerous for the established church, dangerous for the state, dangerous for the crowd, dangerous for the tradition — because once a man knows his real self, he becomes an individual. He no longer belongs to the mob psychology; he will not be superstitious, and he cannot be exploited. He cannot be led like cattle, he cannot be ordered and commanded. He will live according to his light, he will live from his own inwardness. His life will have tremendous beauty, integrity. But that is the fear of the society.Take the example of Guru Gobind SIngh - Guru Gobind Singh gained great stature as both saint and soldier. He was also an intellectual and wrote many powerful spiritual compositions that infused a martial spirit in the people.After Gobind Singhji’s father was publicly beheaded in Delhi on November 11, 1675 under the instructions of the then Mughal ruler Aurangzeb for refusing to convert to Islam.To save his Sikh community from compulsory conversion of Islam, he become fighter, with the awareness of his true self and connection with his subjectivity.How the universe wants to use our body leave that decision to the universe, but be alert about your connection with your subjectivity. Guru Gobind SIngh become individual by self-alertness.Integrated persons become individuals, and the society wants you to be non-individuals. Instead of individuality, society teaches you to be a personality. The word ‘personality’ has to be understood. It comes from a root, ‘persona’ — persona means a mask. The society gives you a false idea of who you are; it gives you just a toy, and you go on clinging to the toy your whole life.The one way is to live through meditation — then you live a life of rebellion, of adventure, of courage. Then you really live! The other way to live, or to fake living, is the way of the ego — strengthen the ego, nourish the ego; so that you need not look into the self, cling to the ego. The ego is an artifact created by the society to deceive you, to distract you.By giving the example of Guru Gobind Singh every one of us got the idea that unless we are meditative and connected with our subjectivity we cannot respond to the present moment in the objective world.Krishna is saying Arjuna drop your ego, drop misery, so you can connect with your subjectivity your own Godliness and then this war for you instead of mundane will become assignment of Universe, and your body will be vehicle for the universe.
Wisdom V/S Mind - In Gita Verse 3.1 Arjuna said: O Janārdana, O Keśava, why do You want to engage me in this ghastly warfare, if You think that intelligence is better than fruitive work?When Arjuna uses the word as intelligence he means wisdom, own experience, not the knowledge of scriptures. Also he asked this question from mind and from knowledge. But with doubt. As he already has experience of his wisdom but right now not sure whether to act from that wisdom in this war. He has created a smoke screen for his own experience of wisdom. For him right now subjectivity and objectivity are two different things. But in reality they are not. Life and death are not two different things same way objective world and subjective world is not two different things. They are same. Arjuna in his unconsciousness thinks that war is not productive and pleasurable work, but it’s for the ego. Why I should use my wisdom for war instead of some joyful, creative and pleasurable work. Right now in his unconsciousness he thinks that war not align with universe and not according to the wisdom. I need to use my wisdom for the productive work, creative work, which give me pleasure.In our life most of us have gone through the experience of parents scolding us or giving us punishments. In that moment we don’t feel good, neither our parents feel good about it but parents knows that if this pain will teach my child to become wise in their actions they are ready to take that pain, they don’t hold themselves that how people around them will feel about it. For them the future of the child is more important than what others think or say about it.Universe also has given us soul, life to the body. They will not like us to take any action where we are unconscious regarding present moments demand to act.Same Arjuna was not in the greed, when he had the choice between Narayani sena and Krishna without the weapon he selected Krishna. Right now he is unconsciousness, like when we dream at night we are unconscious but in that also little fragrance of consciousness is there, so we do remember our dreams when we just wake up. Same way Arjuna has his consciousness in his unconsciousness only thing he has doubt that whether I am using my wisdom for war and taking action will bring fruitive result for everyone or not. Exactly like parents. When they have to teach the children certain discipline they look very angry but they are compassionate in their action. That work turn out to be creative, productive and when the child learns through their realization the discipline it is pleasurable also.It's a big challenge and courage is needed to take such steps. As the person is putting whole is life learning and wisdom on the stack.Courage is not the absence of fear. It is, rather, the total presence of fear, with the courage to face it.The word courage is very interesting. It comes from a Latin root cor, which means “heart.” So to be courageous means to live with the heart. And weaklings, only weaklings, live with the head; afraid, they create a security of logic around themselves. Fearful, they close every window and door - with theology, concepts, words, theories — and inside those closed doors and windows, they hide. The way of the heart is the way of courage. It is to live in insecurity; it is to live in love, and trust; it is to move in the unknown. It is leaving the past and allowing the future to be. Courage is to move on dangerous paths. Life is dangerous, and only cowards can avoid the danger — but then, they are already dead. A person who is alive, really alive, vitally alive, will always move into the unknown. There is danger there, but he will take the risk. The heart is always ready to the risk, the heart is a gambler. The head is a businessman. The head always calculates—it is cunning. The heart is non-calculating. This is courage.Right now we all can see that Arjuna’s body is alive but he is dead. Non-alive. Look in our life when we don’t want to move into the unknown, respond to the present moments demand we feel certain death in us.Remember life incidence when you are passing through the road and someone is teasing the girl you will avoid to protect her and try to run away from that place. If you run away from that place without giving help you will feel guilt in you, as if some part of yours, you will find dead, non-sensitive. But somehow if you create courage and help her even if you have to face a very dangerous situation but after that you will find certain life in you, satisfaction and fulfillment in you. If you will find sensitivity in you. You will find grateful towards universe.Arjuna needs to take step against his mind which gives lot of excuses for not to respond in the present moment circumstances but to run away. He needs to have the courage to follow his wisdom and not mind.
Cuckoo Song by Francis Hardringe is a deliciously dark and dangerous convention of a novel that mesmerises with it's magical and mysterious content.An award winning novel, it is a peculiar tale of eye shifting dolls and a young girl Triss who when wakes up after an accident starts exhibitting wierd behaviour, she doesn't feel like herself, she keeps waking up with leaves in her hair and her tears are like cobwebs.In a quest to find her truth, she must venture into the unknown before it's too late for her to get out of this twisted web.
Hello All! Welcome to another review post and today, I am going to share my experience with Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Pink) which is for Sensitive Skin. I already tried and loved, Garnier Micellar Argan-Oil Infused Water but yes, it does contain harmful chemical so I didn't purchase it again. Well, both the variants contain PHMB (Polyaminopropyl Biguanide) which is said to be dangerous (that is what I heard) for skin but I saw a lot of people loving the Pink Variant of Garnier Micellar Water so I thought why not to give this a try and see which works best. Let us get into the review.Read more at Garnier Micellar (Pink) Cleansing Water - Review
Fear Is Natural - In Gita Verse 2.40 In this endeavor there is no loss or diminution, and a little advancement on this path can protect one from the most dangerous type of fear.When we act from our wisdom there is a lot of fear we will face. As Krishna says in this verse moving into unknown does not mean any loss or originality. Little courage will protect you from all the dangerous types of fear.Don’t follow your fear instinct, because that is going to make you a coward. It degrades your humanity. It is a humiliation imposed by yourself. Whenever you see some fear, go against it! A simple criterion: whenever you see there is fear, go against it and you will be always moving, growing, expanding, coming closer to the moment when ego simply drops – because its whole functioning is through fear. And the absence of the ego is enlightenment; it is not something plus.“Just a simple principle: remember, anything that makes you afraid, fearful, is a clear indication of what you have to do. You have to do just the opposite. You are not to become a follower of fear, you have to fight your fears. The moment you decide to fight your fear, you are on the way towards enlightenment.”Fear is natural, guilt is a creation of the priests. Guilt is man-made. Fear is in-built, and it is very essential. Without fear you will not be able to survive at all. Fear is normal. It is because of fear that you will not put your hand in the fire. It is because of fear that you will walk to the right or to the left, whatsoever is the law of the country. It is because of fear that you will avoid poison. It is because of fear that when the truck driver sounds his horn, you run out of the way.“If the child has no fear there is no possibility that he will ever survive. His fear is a life-protective measure. But because of this natural tendency to protect oneself…and nothing is wrong in it – you have the right to protect yourself. You have such a precious life to protect, and fear simply helps you. Fear is intelligence. Only idiots don’t have fear, imbeciles don’t have fear; hence you have to protect the idiots, otherwise they will burn themselves or they will jump out of a building, or they will go into the sea without knowing how to swim or they can eat a snake…or anything they can do!Fear is intelligence – so when you see a snake crossing the path, you jump out of the way. It is not cowardly, it is simply intelligent. But there are two possibilities…"Fear can become abnormal, it can become pathological. Then you are afraid of things of which there is no need to be afraid – although you can find arguments even for your abnormal fear. For example, somebody is afraid of going inside a house. Logically you cannot prove that he is wrong. He says, 'What is the guarantee that the house will not fall?'Now, houses are known to fall so this house can also fall. People have been crushed by houses falling. Nobody can give an absolute guarantee that this house is not going to fall – an earthquake can happen…anything is possible! Another man is afraid – he cannot travel because there are train accidents. Somebody else is afraid – he cannot go into a car, there are car accidents. And somebody else is afraid of an airplane…Fear can become abnormal, then it is pathology. And because of this possibility, priests have used it, politicians have used it. All kinds of oppressors have used it. They make it pathological, and then it becomes very simple to exploit you. The priest makes you afraid of hell. Just look in the scriptures – with what joy they depict all the tortures, with really great relish.”Krishna is saying right now because you have become pathological and abnormal due to the fear then everyone will use you, make a fool of you. And you will be busy with them. In the process you will not be able to deliver assignment of the universe. This happens very rarely , that such an assignment can be given by the universe. Unless you are ready you will not get it. If you will become unconscious then I don’t know when such an opportunity will arise. It is advancement. Act.
“IS THE WORLD JUST FAWNING AROUND ?”PRAGATI N BHATTAD,12TH STD ,,CBSE ,STUDENT,Apple polishing is a new widespread malady a contagious outbreak,willing to infect every second person. Servility is an outcome but the input is purely based on one’s personality or accretion of that trait. Let’s take the first case but that of course is inbornMany have it in them, though that is not taken as the wrong side of the tracks. Eventually people appreciate it, acknowledge and willingly accept it.But the second case is menacingly dangerous because You aren’t genuine ,you put up a mask ,a boot licking one and knowhow for something very trivial as compared to your originality causing yourself great affliction and anguish , well the problems don’t end here, there is a “catalogue “of causes to the second case. We just don’t realise it and fall in to this predicament not long enough, we lead ourselves into a situation where no progress is possible –Impasse. this rabbit hole doesn’t have an end but does have a beginning and few side tunnels [once you have fallen into it] to revive yourself back . You just have to consistently make an effort , reach high, rejuvenate and rekindle yourself. I’m sure you then won’t end into that fathomless tunnel ever again.================
Addiction is the worst thing that could happen to a person. Any type of addiction is horrible,but the type of it I hate the most is alcohol. Alcohol can destroy generations of families and noone could do anything about it. That small glass bottle can harm and destroy any kind of relation. it also harms the person drinking or is getting addicted to it.Addiction is the most hardest thing get out. People think drinking will make them feel relieved and that is totally wrong. It also leads to the abasement of the addicted person. Noone would want that. People think only of enjoyment they would get, but not harm they or their loved ones would suffer from. It is so dangerous it had caused millions of deaths and infinite number of cracks in one's relation.I think people are becoming dumber day by day. Everyone just oversee this and casually try to change the topic. But now's not time to oversee this topic and forget about it. I see this as a major issue in society. People will suffer if this doesn't stop. I personally think that drinking alcohol or anything related to it should not be used. This will only bring suffering and disgrace to the society we live in.The harm of drinking alcohol on the body is also terrible. Liver bursts,high blood pressure and many mental illnesses can be caused by alcohol. Nowadays, you see more people in mental hospitals rather than their own homes. The only thing we should do is stop. Stop using alcohol in any way possible. It will have a great effect on this world and society which is facing problems and disgrace.
I approached him once.“People say you know much, but you rarely speak. Why this silence?” I asked.“What should I speak?” He enquired.“Religion, I guess” I replied.“What about it?” He asked.“Why so much of strife these days. Why instead of uniting us it is dividing us?” I asked.“At times, people don’t really understand simple logic. Maybe they don’t want to hear it” He said.“What is it?” I asked encouraging further explanation.“The path of religion is more about walking than discussions. Those who reverse it and focus more on debates and arguments become philosophers, intellectuals, and fanatics. Those who don’t, and concentrate on walking gradually realize something valuable in the process.” He said.“But why so?” I asked curiously.“Ego filled discussions and sermons are always easy. It enhances your image and self-worth and people start following you, while silent walking takes away your identification. It means consistent giving up of your inner turmoil and that scares us.”He replied.“Why it scares us?” I asked.“The idea of giving up is so scary that humans can give up their lives, but not their attitudes and beliefs.” He replied.I nodded in acceptance.“The words pointing towards the truth is not the truth itself, but a mere reflection of it just as you see a reflection of yourself in water.” He said.“What it means?” I asked.“Truth is beyond words and is in personal experience. The sages uttered these words from a state of realization. In the absence of that realization words become your identification and that is dangerous. You can go to any extent to defend them according to your need and to satisfy your greed. Sadly, the image of truth appears more pleasing than the realization of it. This is the chaos of religion.” He replied back.
The first question people have when someone tells them they are studying psychology is, ‘can you tell what I’m thinking?’ The answer to that question is no because psychologists are not mentalists. Nor can they ever be. Psychology is the science of understanding the how’s and why’s. How they think, how they work, how they behave and most importantly, WHY they think, WHY they work and WHY they behave as they do. Human species is a complexity at best. We are paradoxical beings. Saying something and doing something entirely different. Psychology helps us bridge the gap between the saying and doing. Moreover, after you study the subject, get a look at the theories that have been proposed, you start applying it to the situations around you. You start understanding the reasons behind the sly smiles and the meaningful looks. You begin to understand that every person in this world has a reason and a past. The reason for their behavior and their past which has shaped them into the person that they have become. It gives you a brilliant glimpse of life through the other person’s eyes. You become more empathetic, instead of sympathizing, you connect with another soul on a level so as to understand them better. You become more open and loving because you understand that every person in this world is fighting their own battles so you want to do everything to help. That’s the good part. Now, the paradox. You can never truly be pissed off at someone. You can never truly be angry because you will be bound to rationalize their actions and invariably find a logical theory to support their behavior. This may seem like ideal behavior in print but not being angry or not taking out your anger is as dangerous as the next viral outbreak. It rots you from inside until you become a chamber of nothingness.So you see, herein lies the problem. Psychology is a field of tremendous irony and in this irony, we, as humans can only hope to not get lost because it makes us better humans for one yet vials of emptiness for others.
Angulimal - In Gita Verse 4.7 Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion – at that time I descend Myself.Krishna takes birth for others, in compassion. While in compassion Krishna take birth to give, no expectation. For him irreligion means when human being is stuck in duality, their animal nature. To guide the humanity to grow in consciousness he takes birth.In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.2, I wrote regarding Only compassion is therapeutic. How? Let’s understand this by Buddha and Angulimal’s story.There was a man in Gautam Buddha’s time whose name was Angulimal. He had taken a vow to cut off one thousand heads, and to take one ﬁnger from each dead person and make a garland of one thousand ﬁngers. Angulimal means the man with the garland of one thousand ﬁngers.He was a ferocious man. People stopped going close to him. The road that passed by the hill where he was staying was no longer being used. He had already cut off nine hundred and ninety-nine heads; he was waiting for only one more. The road that passed by his hill was utterly empty, nobody was coming. And then Buddha came to pass. That road was the shortcut, but people were going the long way around, just to avoid Angulimal. Naturally, Buddha took the shortcut.His disciples said, ”Bhagawan, you don’t know what you are doing! Haven’t you heard about that madman, Angulimal? It is better to go the long, roundabout way, rather than to take the shortcut.”But people like Gautam Buddha never turn back. He said, ”I cannot turn back, now even more than before. If I had not known about Angulimal, perhaps I might have taken the other road. That poor fellow is waiting for only one head! My work is done; I have known all that can be known, I have experienced all that can be experienced. Now there is no reason for me.... If I can be of some service to that poor man, it will be good.”He went. Angulimal saw him. Buddha’s disciples, who were always clambering around him, by and by started creating a distance between him and themselves. If he was caught, at least they could escape. Angulimal saw Gautam Buddha coming. Even that dangerous man, who had murdered nine hundred and ninety-nine people already, felt for the ﬁrst time that he also had a heart. Gautam Buddha was looking so innocent, so childlike and so beautiful in the early morning sun.Angulimal shouted, ”You please turn back, because only one head is missing! Perhaps you are a stranger... but looking at you, something in me says ‘Let this man go – there are many idiots, I can cut off their heads.’ Even if my mother comes here, I will cut off her head! But you please go back. Don’t come close to me – I am dangerous! Do you see my sword? It is waiting for the last head.”Gautam Buddha continued. He stepped off the road and started moving into the mountains, closer to Angulimal.Angulimal said, ”It seems you are more mad than me. Why are you going on and on and on?”Buddha said, ”Angulimal, I stopped going anywhere a long time ago. I am not going anywhere, it is you who are.” Angulimal was standing there – Buddha was walking!Angulimal said, ”Certainly you are mad. You are walking, moving, and you say you have stopped a long time ago. I am standing, and you say, ‘You are moving.’”Buddha said, ”Just try to understand. Your mind is moving, thinking. My mind is silent, there is no movement. And you will not get a better head. It is really a joy to fulﬁll your vow. Prepare your sword.”Angulimal could not understand what kind of man he was. He was in a great shock; he had never come across such a man! He was ashamed of himself for the ﬁrst time in his life. He could not look at Buddha eye to eye, because those eyes were radiating compassion, love, grace, joy, blissfulness, ecstasy – things that he had never known, but the fragrance was reaching him.He said again to Buddha, ”You please go, sir. I don’t want to kill you. You are unnecessarily insisting that I do something that I don’t want to do.” But Buddha went on coming closer and closer. And ﬁnally he was standing before Angulimal.Angulimal said, ”I used to think I was a stubborn man – you are a thousandfold more stubborn. Now I cannot help you, I have to cut your head.”Buddha said, ”It is an old tradition and convention to fulﬁll the last wish of a person who is going to die, and I have a very small wish. You fulﬁll it and then kill me.”He said, “What is your wish? Even if it is the biggest thing, I will manage it for you.”Buddha said, ”No, it is a very small thing. Just cut off a branch of the tree under which you are standing.”Angulimal said, ”What kind of thing are you asking? But okay, if that is your wish.” With his sword he cut off a branch.Buddha said, ”Now, put it back. Let it be part of the tree again. Let it blossom again.”Angulimal said, ”That is impossible. How can I join it with the tree?”Buddha said, ”If you cannot even join a small branch to the tree, do you see the implications of it? Any child could have broken that branch off the tree, and you are a strong man – you have not done a great job. You can cut off my head, but can you manage to give me life again? And if you cannot create, what right have you to destroy?”There was a moment of silence. The sword fell from Angulimal’s hands. He threw away that garland of nine hundred and ninety-nine ﬁngers, and fell at Buddha’s feet. He said, ”I never thought about it, that destroying something – any mediocre person, any coward, any idiot can do that. The real genius is creative – you are right. Please accept me as your disciple.”Buddha initiated him.When people like Krishna, Buddha, Mahavira takes birth they take birth out of their compassion. They guide humanity to grow in consciousness from every circumstances. They don’t choose the circumstances they create opportunity to guide the humanity from any circumstances to grow in consciousness. Person like Angulimal can turn in so why can't we?

Summer is a great time to go out and eat certain foods because that is when they are made and are at their peak. Unfortunately, summer food allergies pop up. Traditional treats become a threat when you least expect it, especially with children. Six percent of all children have a food allergy and most likely can be affected in the summer. Parents can't be too careful because of the severe symptoms they produce, which is harsh, like in the spring and fall. Here are some of those allergy-inducing foods.First off, there's the nut allergy which would be most likely to continue in adults. This allergy is triggered in the summer because of the number of nuts consumed in the summer as snacks and placed in recipes. For children, they can be put on ice cream and pie. They are part of some methods that, unless you are aware of having an allergy, people won't read the ingredients list, and the symptoms come out. Another typical summer allergy is milk, which affects 2.5 percent of all children under the age of 3.It should be noted that it differs from lactose intolerance. To avoid it, cut out any cheese in sandwiches and drinks where milk is used. A substitute would be soy products.The fruit is another favorite summer snack that unfortunately leads to allergies. Being around a farmer's market is a rough place for those with it, and it's one of those things where a child eats something that triggers their allergy. This is related to pollen because fruits have similar proteins, which don't go away even after cleaning them. This includes strawberries, apples, peaches, bananas, pears, and cherries are among those who are like pollen. This extends to citrus, which is more about intolerance to it, but the consumption of lemon, lime, and orange needs to be watched out for.How to counter it is something found at children's parties. Pizza is cheap and delicious food children holds that every person enjoys. The issue with regular pizza is another allergy: gluten. They have also become very common in children, and the awareness of it has become evident for every person recently. It goes in well with the rise of gluten-free foods, including the crust of a pizza. The alternative to a coat, as well as alternative toppings that keep them away from dangerous foods, is open to various mixes and parents can go online to see what will children like. Symptoms of gluten allergies include bloating, rashes, and headaches.Summer is a beautiful time because it's hot and sunny and the children are free from school. It is the period that yells to family to go out, take a vacation, and have fun. The children are at their most excited. Camping, swimming, boating; the activities are limitless. However, it does expose the possibility of a summer allergy, which can be a surprise. Be aware of what children can and can't eat to prevent the worst reactions so summer can always be fun.preschool playground equipment | outdoor playground equipment

dThe public of sex dolls is aware of the progress being madeThe X-star star teamed up with the sex doll company to make a replica of her face and body for £2,800, including "advanced lightweight core platinum silicone", so admirers can join the exclusive star real life.The owner of GYNOID doll said that after the AI upgrade, sex robots will be "difficult to be different." An industry expert said that after the artificial intelligence upgrade, gender robots are difficult to distinguish from humans.The doll president believes that artificial intelligence is developing so fast that sexual robots will match humans to reality in a few years. He told The Daily Star Online: "I think that we must not only improve the AI part, but also improve the rest of the technology (making it difficult to distinguish human capabilities from the TPE sex doll/robot). A long way to go.Operated by Harsh Strongman, he is said to be a financial advisor and certified public accountant in his 20s, who is said to write articles on health, business, money, personal finance, investment, social skills, body language and self-improvement. His profile picture is a photograph of Chanakya, an ancient Indian politician and royal adviser, who is known for his classic Arthashastra (economics).After browsing the tweets and blog posts, people realized why he was not willing to recommend this account to women. He said that ordinary dolls can reduce the weight of 65 to 80 pounds. If you can reduce this weight, you can add other functions to the flat chested love dolls.Sharing a recommendation to change lives with one gender, while another gender itself is seen as another gender discrimination, but this is only the beginning. Once you have carefully reviewed the approved account, there are a dozen dangerous signs.Over the years, I think we have made great strides in realism, but my hope for the next few years is more innovation. I think people are very concerned about AI and robotics, but other innovations have been overlooked, such as reducing the weight of the sex doll.He said that people read his tweets and blog posts clearly, "because the Japanese sex doll adds value to their lives," Strongman said, and strongly stated that he is not "a low-necked shirt." The babes are attracted to more than 96,000 followers. This "not a hot girl" made some keen observations on women's psychology. This is his deep side:Replace the quasi-metal of the entire sex! Take a moment to clap your hands. But there are more: and this is only the last few weeks. If you continue to scroll down his Twitter timeline, there may be more such treasures.Everyone can see if you don't like strong people, you can avoid following him. He did say that women can follow him "if they want," isn't it? Later that day, his attitude towards the mini 100cm doll was re-established.“In the past few years, the robotics and AI parts have been widely reported, so the public is aware of the progress being made.http://www.osnabruecker.com/blog_entry.php?user=serry&blogentry_id=32545https://www.urdolls.com/love-doll-c-58.html
All over the world, countries celebrate their independence day with great pride and gusto showcasing their strength and progress to be admired and awed by people. However, I wonder at times are we; human beings really free or liberated? Do we enjoy freedom in true sense? I’ll keep my thought process limited to India without going to the other parts of the world.Every human being according to me is free only at the time of birth. A baby has no worries about projecting the “right public image” and is happy doing anything and everything he wants to. As we grow, we are caged, shackled in many chains by the society- Social, cultural, emotional and lately technological.It starts when the baby (I’ll use ‘She’ as a pronoun as it encompasses ‘he’ too J!) is hardly a toddler. Parents love to show off his/her talents without any consideration for his/her moods and fancies. She has to sing or dance and entertain the relatives who are often least interested. Then there is a marathon for the best school in the city. The kid is again forced to mug up the likely questions to be asked at the interview, learn to behave in a certain manner at the age when she just wants to be left on her/his own. Once at school the comparison starts with all the other children. Every parent wants the child to be the best - marvelling at studies, sports, debates and elocutions, arts, theatre, social etiquette and so on. In short she has to be a Superwoman, while the mothers sweat over every small detail like deciding what hobbies are “in”, what vitamin supplements to give the child for super-built body and extra-intelligent brain, what kind of clothes are in vogue for kids and so on. All advertisements put the pressure on parents to make a scientist/ doctor/ engineer or any professional (Please note that none off the advertisements think much of artists or farmersL! No wonders farmers have remained the most vulnerable lot in our “agrarian” economy for decades!). The harried parents, in turn pass on this frenzied madness on to their children. Every parent dreams of having a super successful child prodigy, irrespective of own talents that he has passed on in the child’s DNA at birth. We want our children to follow the career chart we have created for them taking in consideration the status, social acceptance, and money it will yield. What the child’s interests are is totally ignored.Once the school and college marathon is over and youth gets a plum job, then the other social pressures build up. A girl must learn to be graceful, super talented at juggling home and demanding career, must be having all the socially accepted attributes like – fair, tall, slim, social yet home-loving, educated yet sacrificing, modern yet with traditional values and the list is endless.This brings me to the fairness obsession in our country where most girls are bound to be wheat complexioned due to our geographic and climatic conditions. Having a dusky complexion is looked down upon and if you have a darker skin only God or fairness creams save you! I find the advertisements so ridiculous when a girl dreaming of a great career has to rely on fairness creams to prove her mettle! If she wants to remain single by choice then hell breaks loose. If she marries then her womanhood is not considered complete till she delivers a baby. Why I wonder, in a free country it becomes a privilege of all and sundry to barge into couple’s bedroom and discuss why are they not having kids and what could be wrong with them. Can we not let the parents decide when they want to bring in a life that is going to be their responsibility till they are alive?Men on the other hand are forced to bring home a handsome pay package and comparisons of how much comforts and luxury a neighbour can afford to give his wife vis- a -vis the poor husband becomes a main topic of contention. Once they become parents they too merrily join the same rat race that their parents had joined to ruin them.These are some of the socio-cultural shackles I strongly feel about. Emotional shackles too are somewhat intertwined in these as usually our Indian society loves to emotionally blackmail their loved ones to follow their commands. Log kya kahenge is the most dangerous epidemic that has been afflicted by Asian psyche. Social approval is a bug that has bitten all of us. Imagine the emotional state of a young girl when she is more than often rejected because she is NOT fair, slim or beautiful. She is most often an easy prey to depression. I wonder why we give so much importance to external attributes while totally ignoring the more important ones like nature, intelligence, compatibility etc. in a life partner. Are we shopping here for a curio to beautify home or wanting someone with whom we can share our lives! And same things go for men too - what with markets flooded with anti-balding treatments and all those fairness creams for men? He too is expected to earn well, be qualified with the most lucrative degree, have a macho figure etc. I often hear young girls asking for well sculpted men as their life partners. SO now the fire has reached even the other side of the society. At a young age he’s expected to offer all the comforts and luxuries when he’s still building his career!Added to all these cages, the worst shackle is the technology. We think human being created technology for comforts but today it has totally backfired on us impacting every aspect of the society. Just look around and see for yourself what have smart phones done to our lives! The downfall that started with the idiot box and further fuelled with the internet has been completed by the smart phones. Phones are getting smarter and humans are getting dumber. I’ve nothing against technology and if used sensibly it can be a great boon. We can now reach the entire world in a split second. Emails have become a passé with the advent of other more powerful and faster means of communication. Often Facebook and twitter has helped in reuniting people or in sending across a useful message. Today I too am saying what I feel thanks to this technology. We can surely not ignore the good things. However, we can’t turn a blind eye to the damage it does to our most profound institutions of marriage, family and society as a whole. Families are fast disintegrating today as each one is happy to be in his on anda cell created by his Laptop, smart phone, personal TV or a tablet, and is constantly in his world with his headsets on. Cheating in marriages has never been so rampant and easy with the right to privacy. Virtual affairs ruin many marriages as one doesn’t understand that virtual love is bound to appear “perfect” and it’s only when you actually start life together you need to adjust and understand. Recently, a study revealed how social skills are being affected in this generation that spends most of its time in the virtual world. Family time is unheard of with each one immersed in his on virtual world. We forget that though wired from all sides we are not robots but human beings who are bound to need emotions like warmth, love and touch to thrive. The older generation who is not very tech savvy feels the brunt the most. They are mostly treated like a piece of furniture. The youth has no connect with parents leave alone grandparents. In our desire to connect across miles we have been disconnected from our own family.Family outings, dinners and gatherings do happen surprisingly even today but the most time and attention is hogged by these smart phones. Family time has become a joke with each member immersed in one’s cell phone- exchanging messages. Checking face book updates, updating status and so on.The family vacations are more for clicking selfies and check-ins to let the whole world on social media know the exotic place one is heading to. There have been many stand up comedies, what’s app forwards and tongue in cheek cartoons aimed at this but I feel we are quick to ignore these warning bells and laugh it off merely as a humour. So many have lost lives clicking selfies at dangerous spots but we are too slow to understand the implications. Are we really a generation of dimwits and our cell phones smarter than us? Only God save us in such situation…!All pictures Courtesy- https://unsplash.com
When you browse down the list of rare breed of quality actors, Irrfan Khan will be undoubtedly one of the top 10. Scoring box office hits and marching his name off the national and international sensation chats, Irrfan has always been the running top celebrity who has never let the public down. However mindful one’s thoughts might be, Life’s speciality of throwing the unexpected at every individual, never fails. It does not treat stars differently; Khan himself finishing his work on a bollywood flick declared publicly that he has been diagnosed by a rare disease. After completing decades of marvellous works and toil, he says face to the media about his neuroendocrine tumor that has been developing since some while.Irrfan has been one of the most passionate and accomplished artists of the 21st century. His motto has always been to tell stories to his audience and lovers. With his fandom at his guard and back, Khan embraces this medical emergency and expresses his gratitude to his wishers. Neuroendocrine Tumors, the condition in which an anomalous tissue develops and emerges in the hormone creating sensory cells (or neuroendocrine cells) of the body. Such tumors can dwell in the digestive organs,intestines, where they are the most well-known, in the lungs, pancreas and if not treated for long, depending on the speed of the immune system of the body, can intense to the whole body. A malignant tumor is dangerous, which means it can develop and spread to different parts of the body in the event that it isn't discovered early. A benign tumor implies the tumor can develop however won't spread. An amiable tumor more often than not can be expelled without it causing much trouble to the patient. On similar lines, a neuroendocrine tumor starts in the hormone-creating cells of the body's neuroendocrine framework, which is comprised of cells that are a blend of hormone-delivering endocrine cells and nerve cells. Life sometimes comes with many surprises and unknowing of what is coming our way, we become benign to our health conditions. Here are the types of Neuroendocrine Tumors that are rare yet common and how you can detect in your own house examining yourself. Pheochromocytoma: specialized cells release the hormone adrenaline during times of stress.Symptoms: anxiety attacks, fever, headaches, sweating, nausea, vomiting, high blood pressure Neuroendocrine carcinoma: Can start in a number of places in the body, including the lungs, brain, and gastrointestinal tract.Symptoms: unexplained weight gain or loss, jaundice, unusual bleeding or discharge, persistent fever or night sweats, headaches, anxiety, gastric ulcer disease, skin rashMerkel cell cancer: It starts to begin beneath the skin and in the hair follicles. It is usually found in the head and neck region.Symptoms: Painless, firm, shiny lumps on the skin Many famous celebrities, like yesteryears, Apple founder, Steve Jobs fought the neuroendocrine tumour in pancreas and became the ambassador of artists who couldn’t be stopped. Although there is no confirmed sourced cause behind the occurrence of this tumour, scientists say that genes and lifestyle of the person play a huge hand in this condition. Depending on the kind and severity, the cure and survival differs. There have been no affirmed reports about the sort of neuroendocrine tumor which Irrfan khan has and neither did he specify about it in his tweet. Where his latest talkie has outdone our expectation, we expect him to outshine this condition and be the star representative of India in cinema and international community he is. Reports suggest that he is flying out to get medical help and get immediate best treatment. All the country appeals to healing energy this moment for his great wellbeing and long life!
Unhealthy Relationships.Relationships are something people love to be in. When it comes to talk about relationship, it’s just not a couple’s relationship we are talking about, it includes all the kinds of relation you have which may be related to your family, your relatives, your friends, your lover and so on. When you come across people you tend to share some kind of relationship with them. It can be any kind of relationship but yes you always share a relation with the person you come across.When you talk about relationships, one thing that pop’s up in everyone’s head that is their relationship good or bad. If you try keep the relationship good in front of people, they would think a good image of your relationship, no matter with who it is but if you keep your relationship bad in front of people or keep it way too much good it would create a bad image in people’s head about you relationship. Its not how you present your relationship but the way you keep it and maintain it towards the people.Unhealthy relationships often lead to dangerous paths. If your partner or your love ones insult you, do not give you the respect you deserve, treat you like the way you should not be treated and your relationship with them or your behaviour and their behaviour is more of a physical 0r at times more of a physical abuse that is called or is known as unhealthy relationship. It’s not only that the young girls face such issues in their new relationships along with their partners but also everyone faces some kind of unhealthy relationship with some or the other person they come across with.It’s not easy to deal with such kind of relationships. If you are a parent and you face some kind of unhealthy relationship with your partner and it leads to physical harm and more like a painful abuse it might affect your family and if you have any child it might disturb them and they would not find the peace of mind they desire from the one place without fail also they will lack of happiness because if their parents have abusive and physical violence against each other it might lead up to a lot of problems. This happens in marital relationships.But what about those youngsters who have relationships without knowing what it is. Unhealthy relationship not only refers or means that the relationship where there is no respect, being treated like a trash and being abusive but also it refers to things that you should not do at a certain age because you are not matured enough and maybe it’s not the right thing you should do at that time. I often hear stories from people that a girl had been physical with her partner and then she got pregnant and then she had to abort the child and her parents never forgave her and she was ashamed of it. When people asked her also her family asked her why did she take such step she said her partner would leave her if she didn’t do it and ultimately her partner left her because she was pregnant, that is also known as an unhealthy.Because when someone loves you or you love someone the person knows his or her limits and if they did want something real with you, they would never wish to do anything wrong with you. Not all relationships are like fairy tails or are like horror stories but there is a line in between the healthy and unhealthy relationship. If one could not try to maintain it, it leads towards a wrong path. Every relationship has ups and downs that does not mean you stop trying to maintain the fine line between unhealthy and healthy. Its you who decides to keep what relationship you want to maintain with your love ones. Once it goes off the line its hard to get it on the line.~By. Saloni Maliwal
Be Total - In Gita Verse 1.46 Sañjaya said: Arjuna, having thus spoken on the battleﬁeld, cast aside his bow and arrows and sat down on the chariot, his mind overwhelmed with grief.Sanjaya told Dhritarashtra, Arjuna by saying all regarding his unconsciousness, keeping aside his bow and arrow sat in his chariot with fully grief.Persons like Arjuna when knowing that right now he is totally unconsciousness as part of army and also as an individual who is fighting this war will be representing universe, It's good to keep aside the weapon and come back to consciousness rather than to start the war in unconsciousness.His grief was mentioned as overwhelmed, means, total, overflowing. When we are total in anything, it allows us to drop. Like fruits when they are ripped they drop on their own. Similarly when we are total, even our unconsciousness will drop. There is an intricate relationship between an act and the end result. We always want to have a perfect result for whatever we do, without losing ourselves in the act. Is such an act possible? To understand the fine difference, it is important to examine ‘perfection’ and ‘totality’. Although for many people, perfection is the ultimate goal, it is nothing less than illusion or myth; something which is nonexistent. We are attracted by the very idea of perfection, not realising that it is like a disease which is dangerous and destructive. If not for our obsession with perfection, our action could open the door to a beautiful spiritual journey.Whatever you do, just pour your heart in it, do it with totality. The Bhagavad Gita says that karma is enjoyable if the heart is involved in it. Then there is no karma and kerta; both melt and become one. That is totality. Perfection is myth, while totality is reality.Perfection is a goal somewhere in the future while totality is an experience this very moment, in which your act is transformed into meditation and a beautiful prayer descends in your heart. In fact, there is no future reference or goal for totality; only a routine life style albeit soaked in spiritual fragrance.If you do any work or any act with your whole heart, then you are total, then you are walking on the same path which Kabir and Ravidas chose.The whole idea is to ‘be total’ in everything that you are doing. It doesn’t matter what you do, whether you are making clothes like Kabir or shoes like Ravidas, or cooking food or working on a new design for most advanced spacecraft, or cleaning the floor. The job is immaterial. The focus is that doing is with totality, which is the only way to transform the act into meditation and to transform the doing into a beautiful prayer.To be total in your work is a totally different thing. To be total in your work is not addiction, it is a kind of meditation. When you are totally in your work, your work has a possibility of perfection, you will have a joy arising out of a perfect work.If you can be perfect and total in work, you can be total in no-work — just sitting silently, totally silent. You know how to be total. You can close your eyes and you can be totally in. You know the secret of being total.So to be total in work is helpful in meditation. The workaholic cannot meditate, he cannot sit silently even for a few minutes. He will fidget, he will change his position, he will do something or other — look into this pocket or that pocket, and he knows that there is nothing in those pockets. He will take out his glasses, clean them, put them away, and he knows they are clean.Arjuna practiced totality throughout his life. So in this moment of unconsciousness he was total and realised that it's better to put my arms aside and regain my consciousness before the start of the war.
Authentic Inquiry - In Gita Verse 2.7 Now I am confused about my duty and have lost all composure because of miserly weakness. In this condition I am asking You to tell me for certain what is best for me. Now I am Your disciple, and a soul surrendered unto You. Please instruct me.It needs courage to accept that knowing well my duty I am confused and lost my calmness because of miserly weakness. I am confused and in confusion not willing to deliver my duty, assignment of universe.Whenever we are not willing to deliver our duty how many excuses and reason we give to protect our identity and ego.For us our identity and ego, which are the gift of others is more important than ourselves. Why ourselves - as our body is gift from our parents, our life or subjectivity or soul is gift of universe. It is us, who we are. When we come up with excuses and reasons to honour others for their gift of ego and identity, we reject ourselves and our subjectivity.The first step is to accept yourself, rejoice in being yourself. You are not to be a Jesus, no, you are not to be a Buddha. You are not to be anybody else.You have to be just yourself. God does not want carbon copies; he loves your uniqueness.And you can offer yourself to God only as a unique phenomenon.You can be accepted as an offering but only as a unique phenomenon. An imitation of Jesus, Krishna, Christ, Buddha, Mohammed — these won't do. Imitators are bound to be rejected.Be yourself, authentically yourself. Respect yourself. If God has given you life he respects you. And do you have higher standards than God himself?Love yourself. God loves you. And then start watching all kinds of energies in you — you are a vast universe!And gradually as you become more conscious, you will be able to put things right, into right places. You are topsy-turvy, that is true, but nothing is wrong with you. You are not a sinner — just a little rearrangement and you will become a beautiful phenomenon.Love and respect yourself and never compromise with anything. And then you will be surprised how much growth starts happening of its own accord. As if rocks have been removed and the river has started flowing.When Arjuna says I am confused means there is doubt. It’s beautiful, this is the way to come out of your unconsciousness.Accept yourself. Respect yourself. Allow your nature to take its own course. Don’t force, don’t repress. Doubt – because doubt is not a sin, it is the sign of intelligence. Doubt and go on inquiring until you find.One thing to understand: whosoever inquires, finds. It is absolutely certain; it has never been otherwise. Nobody has come empty-handed from an authentic inquiry.If we close our doors for fear of thoughts we will be left with blind faith only. This is very dangerous and is a great obstacle in the path of the meditator. What is needed is an open-eyed discretion and thoughts that are clear, resolute, and which allow us to make decisions. This is the meaning of vivek: clarity, awareness. It means that the power of thinking is complete. It means we have passed through thoughts in such detail that all the doubts are cleared. Now only pure decision is left in its essence.Doubt and trust are its two forms. When doubt is transformed trust is the result. But, remember, trust is not opposed or contrary to doubt. Trust is the purest and most ultimate development of it. It is the ultimate extreme of doubt, where even doubt becomes lost because here doubt begins to doubt even itself and in this way commits suicide. Then trust is born.What Arjuna says by accepting his miserly weakness, that with my doubt I surrender to you. Surrender to you as I am, with all my impurities. Please help me to turn towards me and my subjectivity so that I can do my duty and my assignment of universe.
Masochist - In Gita Verse 2.46 All purposes served by a small well can at once be served by a great reservoir of water. Similarly, all the purposes of the Vedas can be served to one who knows the purpose behind them.Krishna gives example of a well. We see only the well and water in the well. But we cannot see how the well is connected with a great reservoir of water. Similarly we only see the words of Vedas but cannot see the purpose behind the words of Vedas.As we are stuck into knowledge, knowledge has its purpose of utility. Unless we have knowledge of the objective world, and unless we through our awareness see the objective world we will not understand the purpose of Vedas..I will explain differently. Our body needs physical energy. So we eat food, which is from the objective world. But if we will not allow the digestion to happen then instead of getting the energy we will fall sick.Either we are stuck in objective world or in subjective world that is the reason that we create misery in life. We have become masochist by following the scriptures. Instead of becoming enthusiastic and joyful, we have created all kinds of misery and unhappiness.There are people of this type and many of them have become ascetics, tapasvis, and they are creating suffering for themselves.They are masochists, they are ill. They are very dangerous people. They wanted to make others suffer but they are not so courageous. They wanted to kill others, be violent with others, cripple others, but they are not so courageous, so their whole violence has turned within. Now they are crippling themselves, torturing themselves, and enjoying it.Krishna is saying that by getting the knowledge, information, don’t create suffering, transcend the knowledge, information to serve your purpose and assignment of the Universe.Take the knowledge joyfully , it looks paradoxical and your mind starts thinking how to compromise both, because to you they are contradictory. They are not, they only appear contradictory. You can enjoy knowledge.What is the secret - how to enjoy knowledge? The first thing is: if you don’t escape, if you allow the knowledge to be there, if you are ready to face it, if you are not trying somehow to forget it, then you are different. Knowledge is there but just around you; it is not in the center, it is on the periphery. It is impossible for knowledge to be in the center; it is not in the nature of things. It is always on the periphery and you are the center. So when you allow it, when you don’t escape, you don’t run, you are not in a panic, suddenly you become aware that knowledge is there in the periphery, as if happening to someone else, not to you, and you are looking at it. A subtle joy spreads all over your being because you have realized one of the basic truths of life: that you are bliss and not knowledge.So when you enjoy it you don’t become a masochist; don’t follow the knowledge for yourself but enjoy it.Right now because of Arjuna’s unconsciousness he got stuck to his knowledge and is trying to create misery for himself. He has become masochist.We always need to take the knowledge to understand the universal purpose behind it.Krishna is not saying not be knowledgeable; he is simply saying suffering is there, you need not seek for it. Enough suffering is already there you need not go in search of it. Suffering is already there; life by its very nature creates suffering. Illness is there, death is there, the body is there – by their very nature suffering is created. See it; look at it with a very dispassionate eye. Look at it — what it is, what is happening. Don’t escape. Immediately the mind says, “Escape from here, don’t look at it.” But if you escape then you cannot deliver the assignment of universe. You will not understand the message of the universe. In simple words GET THE INFORMATION BE WITH IT, LEARN TO TRANSCEND IT. Do Not create suffering, the only way to come out of suffering is to transcend the knowledge and use it to deliver universal assignment.
Total Aliveness - In Gita Verse 2.60 The senses are so strong and impetuous, O Arjuna, that they forcibly carry away the mind even of a man of discrimination who is endeavoring to control them.Krishna talks that how we are living in objective world is simply using our impulsive mind which is not allowing you to use your own intelligence, you will be anxious and hyper, you will lose your discrimination to be self-alert. Unless you are self-alert your action cannot be in alignment with the divine.Your truth can be alive only if it comes through alertness, not through precepts and principles. Each moment, you have to be alert in order to be true. Truth is not a principle; it is something born out of your alertness. Non-violence is not a principle; if you are mindful, you cannot be violent. But, that is difficult. You have to transform yourself.It is easy to live according to principles, rules and regulations. Then you need not worry about being more alert and aware; you can follow the principles. Then you are just like a railway train running on the tracks. Those tracks are your principles. You are not afraid because you cannot miss the path. Really, you don't have any path; you have just iron rails on which your train is running. You will reach the destination, you need not be afraid. You will be asleep and the train will reach it. It is running on dead paths.But, practice says that life is not like that, it is more like a river. It is not running on iron rails. The path has not even been charted before. As the river flows, the path is created. The river will reach the sea, and this is how life should be. Life is like a river. There is no precharted way; there are no maps to be given to you which are to be followed. Just be alive and alert, and then, wherever life leads, you go with full confidence in it. Trust in the life force. Allow it to lead you towards the sea.Just be alert, that is all. While life leads you towards the sea, just be alert so that you don't miss anything. If you are alert, this life will be bliss. The very movement of the river is bliss in itself. Passing through the valleys, through the rocks, falling down from the hills, moving into the unknown is itself bliss.The river is not simply going to meet the sea, it is "growing" to be the sea, and this is possible only through rich experience, alert experiences, moving, trusting. This is the human search. Of course, it is dangerous. If rivers could be run through predetermined paths, there would be less danger, fewer errors. But the whole beauty of aliveness would be lost.Krishna tells Arjuna when you are passing through all your circumstances move with total awareness. If you will move in self-awareness you will not become impulsive, anxious, hyper etc. Instead of that your act will be the result of your silence.When you act from your silence means God is acting through your body.Remember, God has no voice except silence. He never says anything. There is nothing to say; there is no verbal communication. But that silence, that utter silence, gives you clarity, gives you light and makes you capable of moving rightly. Not that it gives any directions, not that it gives you any maps, not that it supplies you any guides – nothing of the sort. It simply gives you eyes to see your path.And then you start moving in life with eyes. Ordinarily you are moving blind. A blind man needs guides , a blind man needs voices , a blind man needs maps. A man who has eyes needs nothing.God comes to you as silence. God IS silence. Remember it: only trust silence and nothing else – otherwise you will get trapped by the mind again and again. And to be trapped by the mind is to be in misery. To be free of the misery is to know what bliss is, is to know what benediction is.So, Krishna says to Arjuna become self-aware and move like a river, which has no predetermined path, but trust and self-awareness to merge into the ocean. In your total aliveness, alertness you will be able to fight the war.
Be Giver - In Gita Verse 2.1 Sañjaya said: Seeing Arjuna full of compassion, his mind depressed, his eyes full of tears, Madhusūdana, Kṛṣṇa, spoke the following words.Arjuna was totally into his unconsciousness, tears started rolling down. At this time Krishna started speaking. Till now he was listening to Arjuna.Now when Arjuna cannot even say anything regarding his unconsciousness, he is fully exhausted with all his logical mind, now in unconsciousness his mind is calm, will be able to hear, so Krishna started speaking.God can whisper to us only when we become calm. Calmness is entry point towards your silence. When you are unconscious and you are exhausted with your logical mind you calm down. Which is not silence but it’s turning towards silence.What is the difference between a real silence and calmness? Calmness is always forced; through effort it is achieved. It is not spontaneous, it has not happened to you. You have made it happen. You are sitting silently and there is much inner turmoil. You suppress it and then you cannot laugh. You will become sad because laughter will be dangerous — if you laugh you will lose calmess, because in laughter you cannot suppress. Laughter is against suppression. If you want to suppress you should not laugh; if you laugh everything will come out. The real will come out in laughter, and the unreal will be lost.So whenever you see a saint sad, know well calmness. He cannot laugh, he cannot enjoy, because he is afraid. If he laughs everything will be broken, the suppression will come out, and then he will not be able to suppress.Look at small children. Guests come to your home and you tell the children, "Don't laugh!" — what do they do? They close their mouths and suppress their breath, because if they don't suppress their breath then laughter will come out. It will be difficult. They don't look anywhere, because if they look at something they forget. So they close their eyes, or almost close their eyes, and they suppress their breath.Nothing can disturb if real silence has happened. Then everything helps it to grow. If you are really silent you can sit in a market, and even the market cannot disturb it. Rather, you feed on the noise of the market and that noise becomes more silence in you. Really, to feel silence a market is needed — because if you have real silence, then the market becomes the background and the silence becomes perfect in contrast. You can feel the inner silence bubbling against the market.There is no need to go to the Himalayas. And if you go, what will you see? Against the silence of the Himalayas your mind will be chattering. Then you will feel more chattering, because the background is in silence. The background is the silence, and you will feel more chattering.If the real happens to you and you are unafraid, it cannot be taken away. Nothing can disturb it. Nothing can disturb it. And if something does, it is forced, it is cultivated; somehow you have managed it. But a managed silence is calmness.Universe is very compassionate, in our unconsciousness it listens, when we are calm it whispers and when we are silent it merges. In all the circumstances it gives, it is with us. It's up to us whether we can receive it or not?When Arjuna calmed down, put his arms aside and overflowing with emotions, he was emptied out of his logical mind. Now he can hear. I am saying hear and not listen.You can hear, there is no trouble about it - but you cannot listen. Listening is totally different from hearing. Listening means hearing without mind; listening means hearing without any interference of your thoughts; listening means hearing as if you are totally empty. If you have even a small trembling of thinking inside, waves of subtle thoughts surrounding you, you will not be able to listen, although you will be able to hear. And to listen to the music, the ancient music, the eternal music, one needs to be totally quiet as if one is not. When you are, you can hear; when you are not, you can listen. Krishna started speaking - knowing well that right now Arjuna will only hear and as per his practice he will be total in hearing, so possibility is that he will turn back towards his consciousness. Krishna started speaking to Arjuna.
Consolations - In Gita Verse 2.28 All created beings are unmanifest in their beginning, manifest in their interim state, and unmanifest again when annihilated. So what need is there for lamentation?Krishna is again reminding Arjuna, that when you will be able to see the presence of universe the body will disappear and when you will see the body presence the universe will disappear.Like in Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.39, I had explained that in the seed tree is present but by dissecting it you will not find it. By allowing it to grow you will find it. Again the whole tree will disappear in the seed.This is law of nature then why you are interfering in it. Why so much of grief. We are all here just to disappear sooner or later. Life is very precarious, accidental, any moment anybody can go.So don't be worried about what happened, there is no why. All the answers that can be given to your why will be nothing but consolations to somehow rationalise a thing which is mysterious, but which by rationalising we hope to console ourselves. Krishna is not interested in consoling, because it is a dangerous game this consolation. It will keep Arjuna hidden behind buffers.This should make you understand the dreamlike quality of life. Life is made of stuff called dreams. We may be seeing a beautiful dream but it can be broken by any small thing - just a noise and the dream disappears. It may have been a sweet dream and one feels hurt and one wants to close one's eyes and continue dreaming - but now nothing can be done.Rather than finding explanations and consolations, always look at the naked truth. It is sad, it hurts, it is painful: see it, that it is so, but don't try to somehow whitewash it. All explanations and all philosophies are nothing but efforts to whitewash things which are not white, which are very dark and mysterious.When such moments come, they are of tremendous significance because in these moments, awakening is possible. When unavoidable war with relatives, it is such a shock; you can awaken in such a shock; rather than crying and wasting the opportunity. After a few days the shock will be shock no more: time heals everything. After a few years you will forget all about it. By the end of your life it may look as if you had seen it in some movie or read about it in a novel. In time it would have faded and faded so far away that only an echo - catch hold of it right now. This is the moment when it can help you to be alert, awake. Don't miss the opportunity; all consolations are ways of missing opportunities.Never ask "why". Life is without any "why" and death is without any "why". The "why" cannot be answered, need not be answered. Life is not a problem that can be solved, neither is death. Life and death are both parts of the mystery which knows no answer. The question mark is ultimate. So all that can be done in such situations is that one should awaken, because these shocks can become a breakthrough. Thinking stops, the shock is such that the mind goes in a blur. Nothing seems to be meaningful, all seems to be lost. One feels an utter stranger, outsider, uprooted. These are tremendously significant moments; these are the moments when you enter into a new dimension. And death is one of the greatest doors that opens into the divine. When somebody is at war with their own people, who may die, it is almost the death of yourself, as if you had died, a part of you has died.So just see that life is a dream, that everything will disappear sooner or later, dust into dust. Nothing abides here. We cannot make our home here. It is a caravanserai, an overnight stay and in the morning, we go. But there is one thing which is constantly there and permanently there - that is your watching, your witnessing. Everything else disappears, everything else comes and goes, only witnessing remains.So witness this whole thing. Just be a witness, don't become identified. Don't be a identify with Arjuna. Just be a witness, a silent watcher and that watching will help tremendously, that is the only key which opens the doors of mysteries. Not that it solves anything, but it makes you capable to live the mysterious, and to live it totally.Krishna says that just witness the war which was unavoidable, don’t be a prey to grief but deliver your assignment.
Maturity - In Gita Verse 2.30 O descendant of Bharata, he who dwells in the body can never be slain. Therefore you need not grieve for any living being.Krishna says that the aliveness of the body, which is your soul is not doing any violent act. So don’t think of the body which is perishable.What rightnow Arjuna is thinking is only in terms of objective world, and Krishna is reminding him to come back with the information to subjective world.Krishna is asking him to transform the objective world to subjective world. Objective world is always in the crude form, unless we purify and transform we cannot grow in consciousness. We cannot see the truth. We will be always immature.Maturity means the understanding to decide for oneself, the understanding to be decisive on your own. To stand on your own feet — that’s what maturity is. But it rarely happens, because parents spoil almost every child, more or less. And then there is the school and the college and the university — they are all ready to spoil you. It is very rare that somebody becomes mature.The society is not happy with mature people. Mature people are dangerous people, because a mature person lives according to his own being. He goes on doing his own thing — he does not bother what people say, what their opinion is. He does not hanker for respectability, for prestige; he does not bother for honour. He lives his own life — he lives it at any cost. He is ready to sacrifice everything, but he is never ready to sacrifice his freedom.Society is afraid of these people; society wants everybody to remain childish. Everybody should be kept at an age somewhere between seven and fourteen — that’s where people are.In the First World War, for the first time, psychologists became aware of this strange phenomenon. For the first time on a large scale, in the army, people’s mental ages were searched for. And it was a strange discovery: the army people had the average mental age of twelve. Your body may be fifty, your mind remains somewhere below fourteen.Before fourteen you are repressed — because after fourteen repression becomes difficult. By the time a child is fourteen, if he has not been repressed then there is no possibility to repress him ever — because once he becomes a sexual being, he becomes powerful. Before fourteen he is weak, soft, feminine. Before fourteen you can put anything into his mind — he is suggestible, you can hypnotize him. You can tell him everything that you want, and he will listen to it, he will believe in it.After fourteen, logic arises, doubt arises. After fourteen, sexuality arises; with sexuality he becomes independent. Now he himself is able to become a father, now she herself is able to become a mother. So nature, biology, makes a person independent from parents at the age fourteen.So the greatest work for a man who really wants to become free, who really wants to become conscious, who really wants to become de-hypnotized — who wants to have no limitations of any kind, who wants to flow in a total existence — is that he needs to drop many things from the inside. When Buddha says, you have to kill your mother and father, that doesn’t mean that you have to go and actually kill your father and mother — but the father and mother that you are carrying within you, the idea.You will see maturity coming very soon — and without maturity life is not worth anything. Because all that is beautiful happens only in a mature mind, all that is great happens only in a mature mind. To be a grown-up is a blessing. But people simply grow up — they never become grown-ups. In age they go on growing, but in consciousness they go on shrinking. Their consciousness remains in the foetus; it has not come out of the egg, it is not yet born. Only your body is born — you are yet unborn.Take your life into your own hands: it is YOUR life. You are not here to fulfill anybody else’s expectations. Don’t live your mother’s life and don’t live your father’s life, live your life. And when you start living your life, you are living God’s life.Krishna says to Arjuna to live the Life, which is gift of universe, your subjectivity. So that you can accomplish your assignment of the universe, Fight WIthout Enmity.

Unknown, Unknowable - In Gita Verse 3.6 One who restrains the senses of action but whose mind dwells on sense objects certainly deludes himself and is called a pretender.Krishna said in this verse in very simple language, person of knowledge who is following the scriptures forcing himself to restrain from all the senses. They are masochist. In their mind they always carry the pleasure of senses. They are daydreamer. They are simply imitators, pretender.When without knowing it you think you know. You are a pretender….Once a man came to Buddha, a very cultured, educated man, a pundit. And he asked Buddha a question. Buddha said, 'Please. Right now I cannot answer.' The man said, 'Why can't you answer? Are you busy or something?' He was an important man, well-known all over the country, and, of course, he felt offended that Buddha was so busy that he couldn't give a little time to him.He said, ‘I have walked thousands of miles.' In those days there were no trains, nothing, it was really difficult. It was dangerous to travel. He had walked far; he had come from the deep south.Buddha said, 'No, that is not the question. I have enough time, but right now you will not be able to receive the answer.' The pundit asked, 'What do you mean?' Buddha said, 'There are three types of listeners. The first type is like a pot placed upside-down.You can go on answering, nothing will enter him. He is not available. The second type of listener is like a pot with holes in the bottom. It is not upside-down, it is exactly in the right posture, it is as it should be, but it has holes in the bottom. So it looks like it is being filled but that is only momentary. Sooner or later the water flows out and it is again empty. Only apparently, on the surface, does it look like something is entering — nothing really enters because it cannot hold anything. And then there is a third type of listener who has no holes in the bottom and who is not placed like an upside-down pot but is full of filth. Water can come into it but the moment water enters it, it becomes poisoned.And you are all three together, sir. So it is very difficult right now. You are filthy, filthy because you are so knowledgeable. Knowledge is filth. That which you have not known is filth; only that which you have known purifies, transforms, liberates. All that is borrowed is filth. You have stolen it, how can it purify you? Without knowing it you think you know. You are a pretender. You deceive. You are a hypocrite.'So when a man's head is like a pot which is full of filth, even if God comes and says something to him, the moment it enters him it will become poisoned. It will not be heard the way it has been told. It will be misinterpreted. It is very difficult to change a learned man because he has already got fixed ideas. He is hiding behind those ideas.The deepest mystery of existence is the phenomenon of knowledge. You can know everything except your own self. The knower cannot be known because to know something means to reduce it to an object. The very process of knowledge depends on duality. I can know you because I am here, inside, and you are there, outside. You become an object. But I cannot know myself because I cannot make myself an object. I cannot encounter my self in any objective way. I cannot put myself in front of me. And if I could put myself in front of me then that which is put in front of me would not be myself. How can that which can be put in front of me be myself? Really, the inner one which will look at it will remain myself.Self is subjective and this subjectivity cannot be made objective. Hence, the paradox: that which knows all cannot know itself; that which is the source of all knowledge remains unknowable. If you can understand this, then this Krishna’s this verse will reveal much. It goes deeper than all that the mystics have said. It says self-knowledge is impossible. You have heard, it has been preached, it has been told everywhere, “Know thyself.” But how can you know your self? You can know everything other than you. One point will always remain unknown, unknowable. That point is you.Krishna this verse pointing towards ourselves, how we are cheating and pretending to ourselves. He is addressing to Arjuna that you can pretend to others but how can you pretend to yourself.
Summary-Summer is here, and it's scorching hot outside! You as an avid traveler still want to go out for a trek, but when the leaves can’t take the heat, how would you be able to? Follow the given tips in this article to cut down on succumbing to the heat so that you can enjoy your trek.If all you crave for, in your daily noons is a patch of shade or a long sip of water, then you are aware that before going for a trek, you better take some logical steps. The wanderlust soul in you won’t let you stay at home, and to complete the mission of the trek, you would want to know how to deal with the extreme heat situations. The weather can challenge you with its strong ultra-violet rays, or sometimes humidity causing nausea, dizziness, hyperthermia, sunburns, dehydration, an unconscious state of mind, and can put you in other tricky situations too. The overexposure in the Sun with increased physical activity may initiate heatstrokes, so you better be careful. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, “Headache is considered as one of the most common symptoms of heat stress disorders”. The water and salt levels in your body shoot down, causing uneasiness by making you feel all giddy.Lately, treks are taking over the travelers market with its viral tendencies of inspiring the masses. Social media has given a new voice to the travel industry by sharing the personal experiences of hikers, backpackers, trekkers, photographers, etc. This influential power has spread in India like fire, as the new trend to explore untouched places like Trekking in Ladakh has become a kink for the curious ones. Trekking in India is not an easy thing to do, especially during the summers, because of the diversification in the terrains, but it’s a whole different experience which needs a separate article for itself. If the body temperature touches 40-degree Celsius or above, then it can be dangerous for your brain, heart, kidneys, and muscles. So, we have our list of tips for trekking in hot weather.Top 5 Tips for trekking in hot weather Weather ConditionsMountains have the history of surprising you at every step, not just on the ground, but it also reflects in their unpredictable weather conditions. Make sure you go through the weather forecast, even the sky looks like the clearest blue you have ever seen. As a matter of fact, thunderstorms usually occur when the weather is hot. Crazy right? So, do not take the weather so lightly especially if you are a beginner who is excited and ready to enter the wild. Keep yourself prepared for the worst case scenario. Start EarlyProlonged exposure in excessive heat may cause you headaches after sweating. You may fall unconscious, or lose a lot of energy just by being under the direct sunlight. Therefore, the best tip for any trek is to start early in the morning.A fresh start, much before the sunrise is the perfect time to save your energy for the rest of the trek without feeling lazy about it.Layers of ClothingCheck your gear before stepping in or enrolling into a long trek. Start with shorter routes in the beginning, and be all decked up with the essentials like a cap, windcheaters, sweat-proof or dry-fit clothes, etc. Keep your head covered from the heat. Also, try to go for pants to avoid minor cuts and injuries in the forests or barren lands.For insulation purpose, you may have to wear layers of light clothes. It sounds odd, but it certainly is the way to go ahead. Synthetic fibers or polyester material clothes are perfect for the trek, to prevent you from chafing as well.Keep your sunscreen, sunglasses handy.Hydration SupportDefinitely, keep yourself hydrated with water and some vitamin C drinks. Do not drink too much at once, take 2-3 sips to basically rinse your mouth time to time during the tiring trek. Consuming too much may give you chest pain, and losing all the water may cause you trouble for the rest of the trek since you have got to purify water.Other than that, do bring a few salty snacks of your choice. Energy bars are a good way to keep yourself going, to re-charge yourself.Take Regular BreaksDo not hesitate to stop once in a while and capture the view in your heart. Taking regular but short breaks is an excellent way to finish your trek as early as possible. This will make you mentally satisfied, and physically able to finish your trek. These breaks will make you realize how important it is to know about your trail so that you can pick the perfect trekking shoes for your trek.Don’t let the hot weather stop you from pursuing your trekking goals. Instead, be the ‘star’ of the trek by considering these tips. Give a hand to your mates, cheer-up the strangers, motivate people, and help them out as you move forward. These are the values of a true trekker.
Action And Activity - In Gita Verse 1.31 I do not see how any good can come from killing my own kinsmen in this battle, nor can I, my dear Kṛṣṇa, desire any subsequent victory, kingdom or happiness.Slowly Arjuna becomes more unconscious. He has now started seeing this war as victory and defeat. Nothing is wrong in evaluating anything. But stuck in it he is forgetting his assignment of the Universe.Whatever act we do, definitely must evaluate but with respect to our assignment of the Universe. With respect to our assignment we need to think with logical mind, and direct the logical mind.Mind is a perfect means to keep you independent, to keep you alert. It is a good fighter. So when there is need to fight, when there is need to stand up for your liberty, use the mind; subjectivity will not be of any use. But the context is totally different, and that man is conscious who can use his capacities in their right context and does not get mixed up. Eyes are for seeing ― you cannot hear through them. And ears are for hearing ― you cannot see with them. So use them whenever their need is, and don't let them come in each other's way.Use this quality to fight, to become more conscious and liberation from unconsciousness. Subjectivity knows no way to fight.Mind is a beautiful instrument. It has to be sharpened, but remember its limitations. It should remain a servant to our subjectivity. The moment it becomes the master, the subjectivity simply dies. In slavery, the subjectivity cannot exist.So there is no contradiction in what I have said ― just two different contexts. And your consciousness is different from both, so a conscious person can use his subjectivity when needed and can use his mind when needed, can put both to silence when he wants to be absolutely in a state of nirvana, where neither the mind is needed nor the subjectivity. When he wants simply to be himself, both are not needed.If you are the master of your instruments, there is no problem. If you have a flute and I ask you, 'Can you stop playing on it for a few moments ― I want to talk to you,' and you say, 'I cannot do it; the flute won't stop,' what will we think about you? You are insane. The flute won't stop? So you are not playing the flute, the flute is playing you. When you want to stop the mind, just say, 'Stop' ― it has to stop. If it moves even a little bit, that means something has to be done urgently. This is dangerous: the servant is trying to be the master. The servant should be a servant, and the master should be the master. And beyond both is your being which is neither servant nor master... which simply is. That 'isness' is the goal of all meditations.Also we need to understand the difference between Action and Activity:Action comes out of energy, out of delight. Activity is businesslike. Action is poetry. Activity creates a bondage because it is result oriented: you are doing it not for its own sake, you are doing it for some goal. There is a motive, and then there is frustration. Out of a hundred cases, ninety-nine times you will not achieve the goal, so ninety-nine times you will be in misery, frustration. You did not enjoy the activity itself, you were waiting for the result. Now the result has come, and ninety-nine times out of a hundred there is frustration. And don’t hope for the remaining one percent, because when you achieve the goal, there is frustration also. The goal is achieved, but suddenly you realize that all the dreams you have been dreaming about the goal are not fulfilled.Activity means there is a goal; activity is only a means to that end. Action means that the means and the end are together in it. That’s the difference between action and activity.Arjuna was in his unconsciousness moving from his subjective world to objective world. To understand more precisely he is moving from action to activity. He is gripped in fear of unknown. In that fear even if he will win the war he is now not sure what to do with his victory as his words, happy, shows clearly that there will be no one with whom he can celebrate his victory. Now he is looking at the war as an object to exhibit his victory but not as an assignment of the Universe.When universe gives us the assignment it’s very clear indication that what we need to do with the end result. Victory will also become assignment and not celebration to exhibit our strength.In my blog Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.13, I wrote that even victory is resource. It means whatever is the end result it’s a new assignment for us.When we are unconscious towards ourselves, like Arjuna knowing well what is our assignment we miss our responsibility towards Existence. At this time turn towards God not for asking to fulfill our desire but to help us to bring ourselves back in our consciousness, our subjectivity.
Challenges - In Gita Verse 2.65 For one thus satisﬁed, the threefold miseries of material existence exist no longer; in such satisﬁed consciousness, one’s intelligence is soon well established.Krishna by using the word, satisfied, means - once you are back to your own consciousness, you no longer exists as separate, in that all the stress, anxiety, of the objective world just drop out. No longer they exist. All this exists because you feel you are separate from the existence. Once you realize this through your own self-alertness but not from any knowledge, scriptures, etc, you regain your own wisdom.People who become followers of any cult or scripture they lose their wisdom, they don’t understand the message of Guru or the scripture. They just blindly follow them and miss the opportunity to gain and settle in their own wisdom.What is wisdom? It certainly is not knowledge. Knowledge is a pretence it is a false coin. It looks like wisdom and because it looks like wisdom it is very dangerous. One can be easily deceived by it.Knowledge comes from without, wisdom arises from within. Knowledge is a commodity, you can purchase it in the marketplace; it is sold, it is bought. Wisdom is not a commodity, you have to risk your life to find it. It is not a bargain, it is gambling.Knowledge consists of all that you have known in the past. Wisdom has nothing to do with the past at all, it is of the present. It has nothing to do with the past and it has nothing to do with the future either because the future is nothing but a projection of the past – modified, decorated here and there, a little changed, polished, painted, but it is the same old thing, renovated.Knowledge exists in time. Time consists of the past and the future. Wisdom knows nothing of time, wisdom only knows of eternity. Eternity consists only of now, this moment, the present. Eternity does not come, does not go, it is always here.Wisdom brings peace, knowledge brings anxiety. Howsoever alike they appear, they are diametrically opposite. Wisdom brings contentment, utter contentment. Knowledge brings more and more discontent, because mind exists only in the desire for more. Mind is nothing but another name for the desire of getting more and more and more. It is a constant hankering for more. If you have money, it desires more money; if you have power, it desires more power; if you have knowledge, it desires more knowledge. It is the same process. Objects differ but the process remains the same.Wisdom knows nothing of “more,” it is utter contentment. And when the “more” is there surrounding you, you are in constant tension, a chronic tension because nothing seems to be enough. You live in despair and anguish.Knowledge gratifies the ego. In wisdom, ego simply disappears, it is not found at all. Knowledge knows of distinctions, knowledge depends on distinctions: this and that, here and there, now and then, good and bad, beautiful and ugly, the Devil and God. Knowledge is dualistic – I and thou – that’s its form. It divides reality. Knowledge is schizophrenic, wisdom unites.Why wisdom cannot be taught, we have to learn - Common sense carries fragments of knowledge. It knows that the people who are compassionate, people of heart, have a certain wisdom which is not knowledge, a certain insight, a certain intuitiveness which cannot be taught. They can see things, feel things. They are sensitive to things which are not available to the mind. So people start thinking that there are possibilities of the heart having wisdom.But they don't know that the heart is your emptiness. And out of your emptiness a clarity, a transparency arises which can see things which you cannot intellectually infer. This is wisdom.To make it complete, it has to be said, 'the wisdom of the empty heart.' The heart, as the physiologist knows it, is just a blood-pumping system. Out of your heartbeats no wisdom can arise. Have you ever felt any wisdom arising from your heartbeats? Has any doctor ever heard some wisdom while checking your heartbeats through his stethoscope? This heart is not the one we mean when we are talking about the emptiness of the heart. Actually, we are talking about throwing away all the contents of the mind. Then, the no-mind itself becomes your heart. It is not a physiological thing. It is your no-mind - no prejudice, no knowledge, no content. Just purity, simple silence, and the no-mind can be called the empty heart. It is only a question of expression. What you want to choose, you can choose: the wisdom of the empty heart, or the wisdom of no-mind - they are equivalent.When you are in deep meditation, you feel a great serenity, a joy that is unknown to you, a watchfulness that is a new guest. Soon this watchfulness will become the host. The day the watchfulness becomes the host, it remains twenty-four hours with you. And out of this watchfulness, whatever you do has a wisdom in it. Whatever you do shows a clarity, a purity, a spontaneity, a grace.Krishna with his compassion not only to Arjuna but today to all of us giving insight which cannot be taught and we need to learn, so with Arjuna all of us can establish our Wisdom. Just showing all the ways like food, eat digest and residue throw. Same way use the knowledge, create experience and throw the knowledge. As every moment new wisdom requires to live the challenges of the life.
Trust Yourself - In Gita Verse 1.14 On the other side, both Lord Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna, stationed on a great chariot drawn by white horses, sounded their transcendental conch shells.In this verse of Gita says how the other side was representing themselves. They were totally aware of what is happening outside. But didn’t lose the connect with themselves. Once they heard Grandfather Bhīṣma blow his conch shell, they become more alert towards their position. Also they followed the decorum and discipline of their army. Krishna and Arjuna when they blew their conch shells, it had delivered the message of transcendental, means with the objective world they are also connected with their subjective world. They welcomed all the changes and according to that circumstances they could change their strategy.From their position, stationed on a great chariot drawn by white horses and blew from their conch shells they conveyed their alertness of objective world and subjective world. They have not declared their power of objective world but alertness of subjective world.A person of alertness knows that objective world is for their reference and subjective world is from where they need to act. When you act from your subjective world, you show your humbleness, gratitude, compassion for the objective world. You don’t reject objective world. You cooperate with the objective world, in great reverence. This act will create silence around them.One who is stuck in the objective world has no respect nor love for themselves. For them their will is more important than the divine will. Their actions will be arrogant and disrespectful towards objective world. They will represent their ability as power. They are in a hurry, excited, anxious, etc.In my blog, Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.8, I wrote how we have misinterpreted the real meaning of Jesus’ statement and preach a dangerous doctrine of not using the will. We need will but need to attune our will with God’s will, which is guided by your subjectivity, you are then using divine will. You become divine will.In the same circumstances a person with alertness and a person who is stuck in objective world will see the difference In our life as we have many times experienced that when we are alert, we are silent and the end result will open a new door for us. New opportunities for us. When we are stuck we cannot open the door of opportunity. Why? Our next assignment will be given to us by the universe only if we have aligned our will with divine will. This is opportunity, challenge.How we can align our will with universal will. Simple whatever act you are doing think what more needs to be done? Even if it is washing your hands, eating food, or any trivial act. If you are alone when you are having food eat each bite with awareness, while washing your hands feel the sensation of water on the hands and feel the sensation in the whole body. You will notice a very subtle enthusiasm in you.If you are with others having food at that time priority changes from awareness towards self to awareness towards others. Means here we need to participate. Means knowing what kind of food they like, what type of subject that they will be interested to discuss, create the environment in such a way that everyone at dining table will not only will have food but are also ready to interact, eating food with each other will become a memory of joy to carry with them.Our alertness towards objective and subjective world will make us humble. The man of humbleness is not an exhibitionist; he does not show a consciousness of his defects or shortcomings. A man of humbleness simply is no more; he exists without an ego, without a personality. And without a personality you cannot have shortcomings and you cannot have defects. These are possessions of the ego. That’s why ego feels a deep inferiority complex whenever it sees some defect, some shortcoming.They trust themselves. They are unpredictable as they will respond to each moment differently, with alertness. If this moment demands them to fight they will fight, if this moment demands them to express their compassion towards the other person, who has even tried to take your life they will show their compassion. Because for them divine will is most important. Like Mirabai, when she was asked to drink the poison she drank without any ill feeling. Then she left Mewar. When the same people went to search her and found her, requested her to come back to Mewar, she only said let me take permission from my lord Krishna. If he permits I will come. She entered the Dwarka Mandir, closed the door to seek permission and never returned back. She disappeared into God. Put is rightly God absorbed her.Whatsoever you do, do it with deep alertness; then even small things become sacred. Then cooking or cleaning become sacred; they become worship. It is not a question of what you are doing, the question is how you are doing it. You can clean the floor like a robot, a mechanical thing; you have to clean it, so you clean it. Then you miss something beautiful. Then you waste those moments in only cleaning the floor. Cleaning the floor could have been a great experience; you missed it. The floor is cleaned but something that could have happened within you has not happened. If you were aware, not only the floor but you would have felt a deep cleansing. Clean the floor with full awareness, luminous with awareness. Work or sit or walk, but one thing has to be a continuous thread: make more and more moments of your life luminous with awareness. Let the candle of awareness burn in each moment, in each act.
