Life is a traffic light

When we are in a hurry, it turning red is the biggest disaster to hit us.
The seconds go by so slowly, and our mind is agitated. Gets very painful.
If, we get a green, we just accept it and zip by - with little caution...

Now, on a different day, we hit the same traffic light in a relaxed state of mind, wherein a red or green is perceived equal in status - hardly something to think about. There is serenity in either states

Similarly, if we are in a state of awareness, a disaster or a thing of joy becomes equal in status. We are just plain happy to be in the state of awareness, and a disaster is hardly an impediment.

So which mode is better?

Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
