The Division of Isms.

Lotus Sutra

On the surface the world is finding solutions to many problems that we face today, poverty, violence, sickness, Pollution etc even in our daily lives we face these at a smaller level, we’re never rich enough to buy the things we want to buy, the world around is never clean enough for us to find that outer peace, our bodies are never strong enough so that we can get away with eating anything we want and so on and so forth. And we do these things, we take these jobs, buy these brands of watches and clothes and shoes and phones & download all these apps and try to find in these a way to connect better to the world around us, to find ourselves amidst like minded people, to find appreciation and love and praise and what not.

The Division of Isms.

On the surface the world is finding solutions to many problems that we face today, poverty, violence, sickness, Pollution etc even in our daily lives we face these at a smaller level, we’re never rich enough to buy the things we want to buy, the world around is never clean enough for us to find that outer peace, our bodies are never strong enough so that we can get away with eating anything we want and so on and so forth. And we do these things, we take these jobs, buy these brands of watches and clothes and shoes and phones & download all these apps and try to find in these a way to connect better to the world around us, to find ourselves amidst like minded people, to find appreciation and love and praise and what not.

But in the process we find that we’re still alone, the world does not understand us, it does not love us enough, people don’t get what I am really about. So I Scream, I value women, I am a feminist, I value my religion, my one true, why don’t you get it? this is so important, drop everything that you’re doing and listen to me, because what I say is absolute truth. So we scream, so we can be heard, we talk tough, we emphasize, we make this our lives, just need an excuse to talk about it, it’s my passion, I feel very strongly about it, why don’t you? you should do too. the world is racist, it’s sexist, did you say what i think you did, you’re racist, you’re sexist, you’re bigot. you don’t deserve what you have. This process of attack and defense- is this the way to life, to love? hatred is powerful- I hate the bigots, I hate those who love Donald trump, I hate those who make make fat jokes about obese women, I hate those who taunt my God, who don’t believe in my God. How Dare you? I hate you!

This!!THIS!!

Hatred is powerful, but why hate when you can love, give to the world what you want back in return, you want love, show some love, compassion, the world needs compassion, yes the ones who you think are racist- they need it more than you think, yes, the one who don’t believe in your God- They can have some of that compassion too. Not because you’re right and their wrong but because you need to start finding a way to heal yourself. Hate is a great poison that you’ve been growing within you. it’s only a matter of time before you find that it’s not the way- not the way to joy- to love, to peace, to beatitude.

When we start dividing the world around us, good and bad, right and wrong, right and left, yes we get lost, we divide ourselves, our true being that is all encompassing and we become smaller and smaller, the more divisions you create, the more you suffer because the world you live in starts to shrink, the heart that is capable of so much love, so much joy starts to shrink. Do you really want to leave this world hating and smiting. Be happy, the sun shines above, the water tastes sweet, the cool breeze still flirts with you now and then. The good gracious sweetness of being beckons you. come back home, become a child again, drop your opinions, find that purity within yourself first, the world can take care of itself, you start with itself, the love that you want to see in the world- BE THAT. that joy you want to see around you. BE THAT. that compassion and forgiveness and love and kindness you want in your own life- give that before you can recieve. become a child again, a child of destiny, let go and just relax a bit. everything will be find. Drop your ‘Isms’ and embrace everything for everything is yours. The world was created for you, so you could play a bit. it takes no effort to be happy, just don’t carry whatever it is you want to carry. BE HAPPY!!

Grace

Never has any one ever gotten rid of the illusion of existence spun by the lord. Never has anyone destroyed the legions of karma, never has anyone mastered the senses. Never has anyone attained, without the grace of the lord.

Uddhava Gita

Uddhava Gita is part of the Shrimad Bhagavatam. It consists of the advices given by Lord Krishna to Uddhava. With a pure mind one observe in all begins as well as in oneself only Me (Lord Krishna), the atman, who am both inside and out, and unobstructed like the sky. O great soul, he who, taking his stand on pure knowledge, thus regards and honors all beings as Myself, who has the same attitude towards a Chandala as well as a Brahmana, a thief as well as a patron of the Brahmanas, a spark of fire as well as the sun, and a ruffian as well as a kind man is considered a sage. Ideas of rivalry, jealousy, pity and egoism quickly depart from a man who always thinks of Me (Krishna) in all men. Uddhava Gita (Chapter XXIV, verses 12 to 15)

A passage from Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore

Passing Breeze

Yes, I know, this is nothing but thy love,

O beloved of my heart—this golden light that dances upon the leaves,

these idle clouds sailing across the sky,

this passing breeze leaving its coolness upon my forehead.

The morning light has flooded my eyes—this is thy message to my heart.

Thy face is bent from above, thy eyes look down on my eyes,

and my heart has touched thy feet.

via Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore.

Sutra

Eternity jar

Come, come, awaken all true drunkards!
Pour the wine that is Life itself!
O cupbearer of the Eternal Wine,
Draw it now from Eternity’s Jar!
This wine doesn’t run down the throat
But it looses torrents of words!
Cupbearer, make my soul fragrant as musk,
This noble soul of mine that knows the Invisible!
Pour out the wine for the morning drinkers!
Pour them this subtle and priceless musk!
Pass it around to everyone in the assembly
In the cups of your blazing drunken eyes!
Pass a philter from your eyes to everyone else’s
In a way the mouth knows nothing of,
For this is the way cupbearers always offer
The holy and mysterious wine to lovers.
Hurry, the eyes of every atom in Creation
Are famished for this flaming-out of splendour!
Procure for yourself this fragrance of musk
And with it split open the breast of heaven!
The waves of the fragrance of this musk
Drive all Josephs out of their minds forever!

 

– Rumi
