President who converses with God
But really, where does the thought originate from?
A thought that comes to my head ...where is its origin?
Theory dictates that there is a lag between the thoughts origin and the thought hitting our head.
If I can go to that source of this thought, trace it back, trap it, and boom I will face-off with my awareness.
I just find it plain fascinating that so many minds - at this very moment - have a world of their own and are buzzing with thoughts, emotions, ideas, future plans, past memories... what would happen if all of us got to the state of being stateless?
I sit in traffic and think of how I am what I am - where I used to be - and the things I have gone through. What would it be if I was bereft of this body? Will I feel the same? A thought goes through my mind and I ask myself who is experiencing that thought, is it ME? The original me - the Me that has survived a million years - or is this ME the body? Where does ME the body get the source of energy - to have my heart beat day in and day out, and continue breathing when I sleep. So when the body is gone, will the ME that experienced that thought still remain? And how it would be to be formless like that. I really wonder....If only someone could share the secrets with me, I am sure the mahatmas and maharishis have already shared it, but I am just not ready for it (maybe).
If I could just experience the love of God...everything else pales in significance. I do want to experience it, but the inner ME tells me that miracles are not for me. Maybe, if I was the president I could have the mircle of conversing with God :-)
Why do I think of myself as so special, the world may not - but I still believe that I am very special and can do no wrong. I think that the world should love me the way I love myself. Is that my true identity - of being that special person. So who is the person that is thinking of the 'bad' thoughts. If I am so special, who is that person who conjures up such thoughts. Is there really a difference between them both?
So many questions....so many thoughts ...never ending.
I know what Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi would do...
He would be quiet, at my verbal diarrhea...
Vaya Moodara - is one phrase I have picked up.
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!
