We often think to grow our business or have a more proper job for the future. In any case we want to achieve more and more success in life. But for someone who lives in the caves,they don’t need to achieve anything or they achieved something more than everything??!!One day, I went to a deep jungle in Girnar. There was a guide with us and he took us to one amazing place.(kala ghuna). A saint was there and he welcomed us by calling “Aadesh”(Aadi+Ish, a lord from the ages).
He made a black lemon tea for us and seated. I and our guide talked with him for a few minutes and during that talk my father made a pencil sketch of him. After all, my father gave him that sketch and waited for the reaction. He was really in question about himself and asked us that he looks like it.? There was no mirror in his place and he never looked at the mirror from when he stayed there in that jungle. So he forget how he looked. Father wanted to give his sketch to him and request to keep his sketch. But he calmly said that but how’s this useful to me.? I need to put this somewhere to save. Please keep with you, what will I do of my sketch?We were surprised to see that immediate reactions. Someone who doesn’t need any mirror to see himself, he just reach to the river and observe their reflections there. By the mirror in the home, we can be well prepared, but for the reflections of yourself we should go to the nature and try to observe yourself. Thank you so much.
Today, we are habituated with digital payment method with using e-wallets, Net banking or credit cards to pay our bills. Everything is very easy for us to apply and accept, but this can not be acceptable for someone. Recently, I heard a real story about an old man from my uncle. He told a very interesting story about that person. That old man used to collect electricity bills and telephone bills with the bill amount from shopkeepers in the market and paid their bills with small profit of 10 Indian Rupees per bill(startup in those years). he used to go with his bicycle and did this work for so many years. He could earn enough by the end of the month and fulfil his needs.
By the time, the uses of digital world, he came to know that everyone used to pay digitally. He found very few shopkeepers then interested to pay their bills like that. Everyone got the way to pay digitally and had some cashback too..!! But what about that old man, who was working hard to earn and satisfied with those ten rupees.. !?. The thing is that, by having that cashback in our bank account, we would not achieve much for our better life, but giving those ten rupees to pay their bills matters more for him and he can survive his life by it. A one man with old age, surviving by this small work, maintain the trust between each other and suddenly the relationship between them cut down. But, still some shopkeepers likes to give him their bills to pay and maintain that relationship of smile !! By connecting to the internet,we lost our connection to the people like him.Thank you so much.
A One day, a spiritual guide talked to their followers about the secrets of Nature. Devotees was listening very carefully and some were tried to write on the same time. In his speech, he also told about temples and Idol worship. He had clearly an opposite mindset for Idol worship. He pointed to the sky and their followers was seeing his pointer at that time. After long years, that saint died and their devotees prepared a large statue of their saint in the memory of him.!! Every saint or guide never told their followers to make a statue of him/her and have an Idol Worship to them. They only told to follow the Nature, understand the nature and you would definitely get your way..
Guide and Disciple are always one another’s friends.By worship of our guide, we always keeping distance between us. We always think that how we can live like that true guide lived for his life. ?! Actually we only wants to clap his speeches while they talked but we never wants to follow that way in our life. I am talking about the true guide(guru) only, and not for those who are seated on well-furnished sofas and giving a speech on sacrifice of worldly life.??!! ..
Everyday will be celebrated as “Vyasa Poornima” whenever one would follow the right way.Thank you so much.
Recently, I heard about one of my friends who became a fan of very famous and wealthy spiritual Guru. He talked about how that guru had helped him to meet himself for a better life. He used to listen to his recording during days and nights.Suddenly, one day he got divorce with his wife and lived alone for some months. After a year he realised the actual situation of his life. He woke up and went to his ex-wife, asked to marry him for another time. It was done and they are now happily married again. Then, he never follow that wealthy guru and his recordings.
Life is not about what your relations are about for you but how both maintain those relationships. It’s not only for your life, but our life. We are not being depended on our individual brilliancy, it’s about how our close relations support us ,be with us and enjoying a life with us. Our existence is not dependent on us but it is by others and it will be till the death.
Birth and death both are fact horizons of our life. Both are like sunrise and sunset of life. Life is everything about relations those we are from and the other we created.Life is all about those very important relations with mother, father, brothers-sisters, friends etc. The religion or spirituality teaches us how important those valuable relations without living a self-centred life.
Whenever I take my pallet and put some colours on it, a green is common there. Landscapes are usually start with sky then trees and ground with water somewhere. Last night I watched a movie that is Flipped(2010) by Rob Reiner. In this movie, there is a small girl was a nature lover. She spends some time by sitting on a top of one tree to see the views of Nature. She used to be there in the sunrise to see the colours of Nature. One day she was sitting on the top of that tree and some men came there to cut down that tree. They requested her to get down from the tree but a girl wasn’t convenient. They tried to convince her for more than ten hours and some people gathered around to see what happens there. Finally the men called to her father to convince and he came there. Her father got up there by ladder and told his daughter that it’s time to get down. She was in tears with one question that why this need to be cut down when I can see everything from here.. !!?. You can see everything from here. A sunrise, sunset, colours of life and a whole landscape??!. After all that father convinced her to come down and she sadly did it.
We all have a tree and we can see the landscape of life from there. We can have a long view from climbing a tree and sitting on a tree branches of the emotions but we actually cut down that to live practically. We should watch those tones which we filled in the landscape of life. Our landscape depends on how we sowing on the ground.
Nature is visible to everyone… But human nature is not visible by everyone. We are living with lot of expectations where we seek to find happiness everyday.. We love the roominess of nature and often goes to the place where we find that. But how about smallness of our mind?, Our nature.!?. In Nature, we never finds an entertainment, lights, computers, internet and walls there.. our mind is actually covered with these facilities and we habituated with it and is called global World. but is it??!. No, there is a bigger world above all this, where we actually see our existence. We don’t find those corners from the wall in the Nature. We find grounds of green grass with different tones, mountains, number of trees those swinging by the wind, a composed sweet sky with birds that refresh and purify our corners of mind. It is a best medicine to achieve roominess in mind.
How many of us thinking about those webs that we created long years ago in our mind.By that, we also creating problems in our present time. Those webs effects another person which he/she can’t understand the situation.Relations or persons are not for the treat from the webs of our mind, it is to give roominess of our mind.
Before few days, we got a courier with one oxygen plant in it that sent by one of our friends.It is a beautiful keepsake from him. We were looking at it with so much joy and we got some online information about it. We kept it on a drawing room table and tried to breathe deep to feel it.I had a thoughts that how nature is giving us the most valuable element called ‘Air’ without payment!? Today, we can feel the shortage of pure air in metro cities. Therefore, these indoor plants are used to feel a pure atmosphere at our home.
Making money by blind eyes will cause a big problem for the future.This ultimate Donations from nature is the base of our life.why an owner of mills organise a trip to the hills or anywhere else in nature to have pure air.!!? By manufacturing those chemicals, materials, fabrics they make billions of money, but may they capture those smog to use them for breathing to their home!? . An owner is responsible for the growth and manufacturing capacity of the company, but may he become responsible for the smog that coming out of the mills?! Can they use that black water in their homes..?? We can never judge how important the role of nature in our life and will not be able to have natural resources by spending money. Nature is not taken for granted,it is our first priority to prevent for the future generation.
Religion(Dharma) and Destiny(Karma) are the parts of our life. A king is not the king for his presence but he becomes by his destiny. Recently, I have gone to a place of one religious community for a work.We reached there by local transport and while returning from there an elder saint offered their car to take a lift. While returning from there I found an elder saint was doing some work on canal for water source to their temple and village. There was 40 degree temperature outside. A one younger saint was with us on the car and Ac was on. A beads on his hand and memorise a name of god in mind.
Even we were looking to help and concerned about what they had to do,infect 2 men were enough there to finish that work, but a younger saint was busy with his concentration in praying to God with Beads in his hand.!?I was in question that what is right to do at that time when an elder saint was busy with working to handle a heavy pipes by some men there and his disciple was sitting in the Ac car and memorise a name of God.!!??
In daily life now smartphones are really useful to be connected with our family and friends.. At one time I went to Girnar jungle. A place that is heaven on earth.. By going into some depth, we found a large scale of trees covered with a sweet green flavour..we had few mobile phones with us and suddenly we found that there was no network coverage in our mobile phones. Therefore we were actually in the connection with Nature where we were. After roaming there in the jungle we forget to see the timings and could feel the darkness of night. We could not see a depth of 15 fits ahead. We had a campfire in small ground there. At once, I looked in the sky and I felt a whole universe connected with us. Sky covered with plenty of stars and planets.Which we can not see in the city-lights.
The Sky is an element of our ultimate thoughts, our dreams, reality etc. Our feet were grounded and concentration to see the sky. It was amazing.. we covered with a network of Nature at that time. Nothing to do there and nothing we could see near to us and a lot to see in the limitless view. When we are not in the network of our cellphones, we definitely in the network of Nature.it refresh us and harmless.We should try to find a coverage area of Nature at least once a month.
Sky and earth is really two ultimate elements that we see. They don’t meet anywhere but we see that horizon where we feel amazing scenes while Sunrise and sunset. Earth herself create those situations on the season of spring when sky fall in love with her. The sky uses fire element by Sun for few days and himself fallen down with rain drops on earth. I think the rain is a mixture of five elements of nature. A birth from fire element and water, becomes in the form of steam; cool down in the heights of sky and fall down on the earth in the form of rain.The most Important thing is a salted water becomes a purified water in this process.If our life is going with salinity then Nature has the ability to purify it.

Trees are the kids of nature. We can see grounds, jungles with green grass and trees by rain. Birth is depended on the elements of fire and water, cool down from the wind element in the sky and fallen down on the Earth.Whenever this cycle of nature is reduced due to underground of the earth, the birth ratio will automatically reduced. It is the same theory for the human being also. Thank you so much.
