All our life is just a pretension……

Each and every human being lives in a myth that what he does is only the meaningful thing.Each and every human being,at the bottom of his heart feels that he is living his life honestly,that his search of truth in life is authentic.He honestly goes to the temple.Many a times he donates a lot.Whenever he crosses any temple,he will pay offerings.And this goes on everywhere.Let it be India or America.This is a human tendency.Each human being sets or decides something as holy.He does it honestly.At this time,i remember Rabindranath Tagore.He in one his poems says that this is all pretension.Your holiness,your offerings….just a show….just a game.

At first time,it seems controversial,but it is the truth.Whole life of man is nothing but a pretension.A world created around,to keep yourself distinguished.The man’s search of truth,his prayers,offerings….just a game.When actual truth comes in front,we just pull back,cling to self created illusion.Our quest of truth,is bogus………

What can I do about this world?

I gave up sewn clothes and wore a robe,

but i noticed one day,the cloth is well woven……

So,i bought some burlap,but still,

I throw it elegantly over my left shoulder………

I just pressed my sexuality but then i noticed,

that i am too much angry……..

These are lines by Kabir…….

What can i do about this world?

it is just like dried skin of dead animal……..

try it to make straight at one part………it will bend from somewhere else……….

this is our sad story…….for the whole of our life,we just try to fight against the mind,but it emerges from somewhere else.We by too much of effort renounce world…..but then we realise that it has followed us through an increased ego….We by too much of efforts repress our sexuality.But again some day we notice that we are more angry now……

So,this is mind…..this is maya ……this is world……

The true way is not of fighting…..it is the way of witnessing…..Just see how it works…in this seeing only,it is dropped…

mysticism and politics…….

As i can guess,these are the two terms having greatest distance possible.But this world is quite strange……..

it can happen that to keep burning the mystic within you,politics is inevitable……same is the situation here…….

and i can draw the conclusion that mysticism can be bundled with politics….a combo pack……but its a razor’s edge…….much patience is needed….also needed a great deal of awareness……

Our college holds elections for various posts……at first my syance was to remain away from it……just the dirty politics…..But it was the question of existence……to be or not to be……so without giving a second thought,i jumped in…….and ya,i learned one thing,that politics can be a great teacher……..

Politics can teach us that politician is hidden in each of your friends……..close ones……always praising you…..

Politics can teach you that,you can fight against a strong guy without having a single point worth talking………..

Politics gives you a right to alter your statements to very contradictory ones many times a day……..

politics can teach you how a crook can get in hand few fools and pooison them against you…….

can poison the very best friends you had…….

witnessing is the key of all meditations……..politics helps you or rather learns you to witness………

calmly,quietly,patiently………….

situation is against you…..just watch it……..then you think that it will be in your hands……because you count on someone…….then this someone trips….just like a flip-flop……..then you again watch yourself being defeated……then you get the aces…….everything again in your hands……but then too,watch……

it confirms one thing…….

in this world,everything teaches……politics also…..

just open up the eyes………

The fake Babas…..

This week was for Babas…..the fake Sadhus………

In India or anywhere in the world where too many parameters which are out of control of a particular human being play role,govern his life,Babas are born.These Babas or fake sages are nothing but outcome of the fact that ordinary man at such  places has not even minimal control over his life.If he will get earning for the day or not depends on the contractor.If he will get Below Poverty Line benefits,which by law is his right  depend on clerks in office.Will his slum be kept as it is or will be thrown away depend on bilder lobby and politicians.So,very few things remain in his hands.As these Babas promote themselves as only messenger between human and divine,certainly this man who is looser in his life is going to be get attracted towards fake holy men.

On the other hand,these Babas have political support as these Babas hold a much of crowd and hence a lot of voes in their hands.At the same time,these fake hermits are the medium through which any illegal  activity can be carried out silently.Rich people support these Babas because they want to wash out all their misdeeds they did to earn the money by serving this Babas and also,these people are happy that many illegal things which they could never do in their can be easily done it the ‘holy’ places of Babas.

These Babas are nothing but an outlet for all the ugly things inside us those we go on hiding from  society to fulfill our vested interests.

Do we need a religion?

This is the question which was eating my mind for a long duration of time,which falls into months.A man should be from any kind of background or from any profession,he needs something on which he can hang up his load,or something which can be blamed for things that are not under his control.I would like to tell you that,man has made religions the worst system which ever existed on this earth.Religion has just become a chocolate;a consolation.All the Pujari,priests are holding this chocolate in their hands.It is a simple psychology that for a normal man there is going to be something which is beyond his control.Priest cunningly use this fact a pretend that they are the medium,between man and divine.The poor man is already so much frustrated with life that he bows in front of priest than experiment with the poison.So,the system continues.

But the poor priest is not the only person to be blamed.The man also deep within knows that he cannot follow authentic religious path,as it is too dangerous.Your ego,lust,greed,passion,everything needs to be dropped.At the same time the common man is afraid of being honest to himself,as blessed is the ignorant,or rather blessed is the one who pretends to be ignorant!The man knows all the dishonesty,ego,greed within him.Priest gives him an easier way-just sing song praising the lord and everything is washed away.Man also believes this,even if he does not believe,he follows it because it gives him a false satisfaction of being freed from all the misdeeds.

Thinking honestly,we have made religion a mask to hide our lust,ego,passion behind it.Now,time has come to tear it away and encounter oneself!

Meeting with remarkable man i.e. with Gurdjieff

Meetings with remarkable men is a really wonderful book.

Too difficult too grasp even though it is made much simpler by gurdjieff,the author  of the book and very famous mystic,famous for his absurd behavior.The book covers a lot of personalities which he calls as ‘remarkable’.

Gurdjieff was really a remarkable mystic.He used every possible way ,for example way of dance,music and the most important ,the way of absurdity.Thats why i love him.He knew that eternal can be indicated only through absurdities rather than through a constant theory.

Many stories of him are famous of the great torture  his disciples used to undergo.But it should be remembered that he never wished to harass or trouble them,rather blessed were those who had a fortune of being troubled by him!This meeting with Gurdjieff through his own book was really remarkable.The honesty and truthfulness of this man really makes us to feel ashamed of us.There are many disciples of Gurdjieff defaming him as a absurd and cunning man.

But gurdjieff,I love your absurdity and also your so called cunningness!

music helps me a lot….than philosophy…..philosophy troubles me a lot…..than music…….
and ya,i love them both………

footprints of a bird…..embedded in whole sky……..
yet which no one can follow………
so,i am flying……and it is a fun……..
