Kiss of Timelessness

“The Earth would die If the sun stopped kissing her.”
Hafiz

Love these Timeless expression by Khwāja Šams ud-Dīn Muhammad Hāfez-e Šīrāzī, (1325 – 1389 ) ,

Morning and Evening are divine times when Lips of Time Kisses the Timeless Divine .

It is a expression that God is neither Light nor darkness , neither positive nor negative , it is a Zero Energy , beyond Time and Timelessness …… before and after ” BIG BANG “.

Love all.

this morning reading another  poem ……. what is a dream ?

what is a Dream
A thought, A wish, A cry without evidence or having been seen.
A Light, The Darkness,or what might have been.
A touch, A scent, a place of grandeur.
The search in abyss,unable to soar.
The fear,Triumph,forgetting all will.
Silence or laughter,the solace of still.
abundance,humility,and finally, peace.
Away from the chaos is where one can be, all in the moment of a glorious
Dream.
(c) Tanya Moulton

in my opinion dream also is a travel ……a illusion with in a illusion of reality

…like our illusion …… of a drop of divine or the ocean …..

in my view we all are drop of divine outside and divine ocean inside ……

the drop is now ….

prayers to Wind God Hanuman

Hanuman Jayanti or Hanumath Jayanti is celebrated to commemorate the birth of Hanuman, the Vanara god, widely venerated throughout India especially in North India. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the Shukla Paksha, during the month of Chaitra (theChaitra Pournimaa).

Hanuman is an ardent devotee of god Rama, and is worshipped for his unflinching devotion to the god. From early morning, devotees flock Hanuman temples to worship him.

Hanuman Jayanti is an important festival of Hindus. Hanuman is the symbol of strength and energy. Hanuman is said to be able to assume any form at will, wield rocks, move mountains, dart through the air, seize the clouds and rival Garuda in swiftness of flight. He is worshipped in folk tradition as a deity with magical powers and the ability to conquer evil spirits.

Tao Te Jing = timeless wisdom of Lao Tze

Lao Tzu

[Lao Tzu]

Biography of Lao Tzu – Founder of Taoism

It’s hard to pin down a biography of Lao Tzu (570-490 BC). There are numerous legends about him. Many believe he never existed at all, while historians can point to several possible historical identities for him. Regardless, the legends give the book an endearing, human face. They all place him in Luoyang (marked in this map), the ancient capital of China.

China map

Confucius and Lao Tzu

The most famous legends are of how he came to write the Tao and of his meeting with Confucius 
(pictured below; click for larger version of image):

Around the 6th century B.C.E. Greece had Plato and Socrates; India had the Buddha and China had Confucius and Lao Tzu. Born in Ch’u (present-day Henan Province), Lao Tzu ([small Lao Tzu]), which literally means “old master”, is also sometimes referred to as Lao Tan or Li Er. 

Confucius meets Lao TzuHe was appointed Keeper of the Imperial Archives by the King of Zhou in Luoyang. He studied the archive’s books avidly and his insight grew.

Hearing of Lao Tzu’s wisdom, Confucius travelled to meet him. Confucius put a lot of emphasis on traditional rituals, customs and rites. 

Confucius asked Lao Tzu about performing rites and rituals. Lao Tzu replied: “The bones of the people you are talking about have long since turned to dust! Only their words linger on. If a man’s time comes, he will be successful; if not, he will not be successful. A successful merchant hides his wealth and a noble person of character will feign foolishness. Therefore, you should give up your proud airs, your desires, vanity and extravagant claims! They are useless to you.

Later Confucius later told his students:
Birds can fly,
Fish can swim,
Animals can run,
So they can all be snared or trapped.

But Lao Tzu is like a flying Dragon, un-trappable.

leaving LuoYang on an Ox

Much later, Lao Tzu perceived that the kingdom’s affairs were disintegrating , so it was time to leave. He was travelling West on a buffalo when he came to the Han Gu Pass, which was guarded. The keeper of the pass realised Lao Tzu was leaving permanently, so he requested that Lao Tzu write out some of his wisdom so that it could be preserved once he was gone (pictured on the right). 

Lao Tzu climbed down from his buffalo and immediately wrote the Tao Te Ching. He then left and was never heard of again.

p.s….. thought to present this timeless wisdom in contemporary context in essence in 81 wisdom notes ……steno at work again…..love all.

why we pray in temples , mosques , churches or a holy place ?

One time travelling with friends by car and it was evening time so we all stopped near a temple as all my friends wanted to join the evening Aarti or pooja or prayers …..that time looking at the rituals performed thought there must be a scientific and spiritual meaning behind all these…..what exactly we do in a pooja?…

1 ….we decorate the lord…..the beauty…..for our eyes…..
2…..we ignite a oil lamp…..the light and beauty….also for eyes…
3 …..we burn incense …..for fragrance……for nose….
4 ….we offer flowers…..for fragrance and sensitivity and beauty….for touch….
5…..we have a bell ringing……for music and ears……
6…..we offer food……creativity and taste……
7 …we sing bhajans…..for oneness right and left brain and memory….
a science is a method by which in very small time we perform much larger work……going to a temple which is a place of creativity and spiritual science……which knowingly…… unknowingly …..creates oneness of senses and as per the latest scientific report …art and music brings happiness in mind….
figures of Psychologists per 100,000 inhabitants
Argentina: 121.2
Denmark: 85
Finland: 79
Switzerland: 76
Norway: 68
Germany: 51.5
Canada: 35
Brazil: 31.8
USA: 31.1
Ecuador: 29.1
in India this number is less than 3 per millions……
Hindu been a great scientific and spiritual society so has been different societies around the world and in all the societies spiritual practices there has been science and sacredness modified to suit the geographical, social, envoinmental and economic conditions. but basic aim has been love and happiness only. With time many spiritual practices…..some where it has become rituals also….but still they serve the purpose which used to be meditation earlier now at least medicine…..but still keep society together.
take time out.. go to a temple….mosque or a church or the worship place of your choice ….feel the spirituality…..see the people….see their emotions….see the faith…..feel the sensitiviness if can not go there come outside in the garden feel the breeze….look at the full moon….. life is a journey of creative enlightenment….and going to sacred places or in nature is taste of that enlightenment.
hope this post make little sense to all the readers ….
love all.

do we need a Guru ?

Think system of God….by air ( spirit ) we are all one…..with body we are all separate …..and one has a freedom to choose water and food….

In India we have a round sweet ball….made up with hundreds of small ball…..called LADOO….the unique character of this sweet is no body crush no body…..so each ball is a complete ball in itself….so is atom……but in our world most of the new culture are made in a pyramidal way….with a well- defined hierarchy…..with top …inner circles to many many circles…. people at top are afraid of heights…and people at bottom get crushed because of load…..but most of them in time to come becomes a robotic organisation….with same uniforms….same rituals….and a simple follower become a bonded labourer……their head claim to got enlightened in few days but followers are there for last so many years…..so think of a real freedom…. 

who is better…..a person taking medicine or a person naturally healthy…?
mostly one will say …..person naturally healthy…..

in time of confusion or stress or feel lost we look for a guru, guide, preacher, inspirational coach, management consultant who will suggest stress management sciences including meditation , yoga, enchanting, and many type of simple to complicated practices which may give some powers …… but all these have nothing to do with health or God……so if people follow gurus …..it means there is a lot of stress….it may be body , mind, and soul stress ,……it may be a proactive or reactive medicine but this is not the health…..

Lord Krsna in Gita …..one name and one flower is enough…..like a child one good morning to parents is enough….and one goodnight is more than enough ….we do not create our children to pray to us ….than how God can create us to pray ?…..flower represents sensitiveness and softness……so if a person is not sensitive towards others and enchant the name of God…..is not at all near to God…

what one need is a guide to teach ….how to drive a car and guide once satisfied leaves you to self driving ….only self driving will give you courage and freedom…..Gurus are like a bus journey…one may feel secure among many others in the beginning but steering is not with you…so one hardly learns….

look for a coach within….God is a good coach…..life itself is a good coach….

All the religion which exists in the name of religion are philosophies, natural love which exists without name is religion.

Love is universal truth.


love all.

W.O.W = Worship Of Work ?

 

 

1 = 1000W.O.W = worship of work …….what is worship of work ?

we will understand with the role of a mother and a nurse……

The nurse performs the work as duty….but mother performs the work as ….Dharma or worship of work……so role of nurse is ritual or practical….and role of mother is spiritual……so three letters…..s p i missing in ritual…..s means sensitiveness…..p as prayer…work as prayer of God….i means inspirations…..so any work which has sensitive prayer inspirations is spiritual….and rest could be practical or ritual..

Vedanta vision say….food is God….and cooking is one of the finest spiritual prayer of God…..
one of my friend is a great classical singer….
one day she ask me how can she improve the music ?…..
I tell her to cook meal at least once a week….
cooking is sensitiveness and oneness of senses….
God is in every atom so worship of work starts
with cleaning…to cooking…..a meal created with love brings taste of God….
and accept food as grace of God….
cooking and eating meal this way is spiritual…..

Punjabi-lady-making-chapati
Prepare a (potato dish ) alu pratha or chapati at home and order the same from a restaurant….. leave them for one hour…..both are made with same materials……now which one we can eat….home or the restaurant ?…..and why ?

we will always eat the pratha/chapatti which has been prepared at home. While cooking the meal our love, dedication is involved so the home food has longer life and the pratha remains soft not only till the evening…..but till next morning…..
 the cook in the restaurant makes ….this as duty…..
taste and softness will depend on the love and devotion of the cook towards own work….
with modern time inner love is decreasing and this reduces the life of the food…..
so food becomes hard….hardness is symbol of insensitivity…
hence we will not like to eat this paratha……
this work can be termed as practical and ritual…..
working like a robot…no or little emotions…

Love gives longer life to every thing
that is the reason music, art, and wisdom last for thousand of years
like…Veda , Gita, temples, Taj Mahal……
all these are worship of work with love….this is spiritual…..
enjoy worship of work….breath to breath ….that is spiritual living…..
love all…

Whether we
are Atheist or Theist, whether woman or man, whether searcher or seeker, whether teacher or student, whether rich or poor, whether child or old,whether working or retiring and whether knowledgeable or ignorant,..

We all have a deep thirst for a kind of happiness which we feel we know but some how we have not been able to hold it permanently except we have short glimpses on certain occasions……

This happiness is equally desired and searched by all categories of human being irrespective what one is and where one is ?

Without proper identification and marking and clues about destination these journeys are taken on various known and unknown paths along periphery and also towards the center which has a mystic origin .

Most of the travellers even after travelling for long years alone or with one to multiple groups normally do not experience that happiness even after several experiments and at last abandon the journey,empty-handed although luggage and baggage are substantial.

What kind of happiness, is it that we aspires for ?
what is that desire ,… that beauty,…..that we aspire for ?
which is that look we seek to be bestowed with ?to be continued…… read more now….part =2 https://ram0singhal.wordpress.com/2011/03/12/zero-research-zero-2/
