My hiatus


I bit of a hiatus there, as the personal life took over - and it was amazing to find out that as I tried to keep pace, how quickly the spiritual thoughts fell out of perspective. Conclusion: A spiritual life and thought is also fated. Thus, if I am dwelling on it, I should be thankful and make the best use of the opportunity to enhance that chain of thought and get to that spiritual growth. But even that thought, gets implanted from somewhere.

Ummm....I really should give up....I am never in control anyway. Just BE!

Which brings me to another topic, had a buddy visit on Friday, and I was a bit struck by his ability to focus and get lost in the beauty of life, derive pure pleasure in just listening to music, from the depth of the soul, and I wonder where I lost that. That pure pleasure, that used to soak my body and soul and every ounce of me, as I immersed myself into something. Now, it is just jumping from one thought to another, one act to another, one to-dos to another, hardly a pause anywhere. I guess I do need a paradigm shift - reprioritize and cast away the useless, and stick to the value statement of life as it should be.

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!
