Human beings are endowed with an intangible mental energy that empowers their thoughts, disposition and the frame of mind. It is the base to reach the higher faculties of refined thoughts and feelings, free from raw sensuality into a state of spiritual synchronization.
Satyadharma is the understanding of ones own mind. There is a natural law operating in the area of the human consciousness, which is universal. It is the process of distillation of those thoughts, feelings, which lead to a mental state of mind that concerns individual’s transformation of inner restlessness to an enduring calmness.
Satyadharma does not refer to mediums, psychics and spirits or contact with the dead. It is an understanding of consciousness that allows comprehending the whole thing in its unified yet relative terms. It is a sanctimonious experience without being religious. It is an individual to an individuals own belief. It is personal and needs no institution to regulate and follow it. It is the only path that can transcend the bloodbath on humanity and damage done by religions on society.
It emphasizes the prospect to deal within oneself and achieve righteousness without any external dependence or help of Gods. It does not advocate renouncing the world but promotes to accept the challenges of life, face-to-face with all its problems, and to come to terms with them.
This is a natural process to evolve, being subtle and nameless, it goes unnoticed. The name Satyadharm is a tag to simply identify this process, to avoid being misled by religionist and charlatans. What is being presented is nothing new, it has been said earlier. It is merely a recycled wisdom of the wise to consider again, what has been forgotten long ago.
It has no philosophy. It is a catalyst to bring change. Change can take place only when all the belief systems are dissolved whether ancient or modern, religious and scientific, facts should take precedence over theory and not vice versa. Correct understanding comes when the mind is free from all beliefs. That’s when it is absolutely free and receptive to change.
The end of organized religions is not to be grieved. It validates the open-mindedness to change a lopsided way of thinking. But complex mechanisms working on the same grounds can be molded by the manipulators to incapacitate the shift, something unknowingly can cling, with the unsettled mess inappropriately, preventing a smooth transition.
Satyadharma means to have conviction in oneself and the laws of nature that operate universally. Like accepting the principle of cause and effect and recognizing that all that is meaningful does not essentially have a meaning and all that is meaningless can at times become meaningful. The human mind is curious to know everything but the hidden mysteries of the cosmos prevent to comprehend the whole thing.
Satyadharma is to respect life and stop thinking of ourselves as Indians, Americans, Russians and Chinese or as a Buddhist, Hindu, Christian or a Muslim. Once this is grasped all the walls of division built by atrocities in the name of patriotism and religious crusades cave in. Then our identity as a human being and world as one family comes to sight and oneness starts flowing without intervention filled with love for each other.
Earth existed without religions. Religions are just five thousand years old, which indeed, is a small piece of time, in the timepiece of history of the human race. All man-made religions were meant for a particular time. If religions change with time they remain relevant and if they are rigid they become obsolete and survive merely by manipulative mechanism. However the element of spirituality called Satyadharma is perennial.
Questions raised and addressed by religions are typical. They mainly concern God, universe, human existence and afterlife, even though science has not made any significant headway towards answering these questions so far, let Satyadharma do that now. A path that leads to the knowledge of ones inner reality, it is riveted to realism and poised to rise above false impressions, thoughts, and the kind of life and living bred by religions.
Extraordinary ability is not essential to lead a moral life. A morally upright life is necessary for human relationships. It is the moral engagement in the world that brings quality of character, such as honesty. Morals are the base of Satyadharma. Acts without egocentric bearing are necessary to form an awareness of one’s own self understanding. Can we appreciate tranquility without a tempest? Can we know peace without pandemonium?
Five senses and their interplay limit human perception. To know what lies beyond our receptivity is an evolutionary phenomenon, which drives the responsive human being to a limitless precinct. This is a uncreated state of being, which goes beyond any ideology, but the world is endangered by harmful forces that are created to satiate the ravenous greed of self-seeking human beings. Satyadharma takes one to a deeper level of being it goes beyond the material and emotional aspect of living, aspiring to ‘BE YOUR OWN GURU' AND 'YOUR OWN SCRIPTURE’.
The longing of the human heart to experience cosmic consciousness, something that is spiritual, and go beyond the frontiers of the material world is deep seated within us, as we too are a part of eternity. There is a constant yet a subtle search to know what it is, in as many ways as possible, some wait for unexplained events to happen, some encounter them in normal events of life. The intangible is unseen by the naked eye, but surely one who experiences it enters a surreal place, where old rules do not apply to them, they accept things as they are, and make their own rules on the way to their inner journey.
Reality is within us, the Guru is within us. God is within us. When we understand and follow the laws of nature, we become natural. Nature is the creator. There is no need to believe in human Gods or go to Gurus seeking security. Genuine Gurus are rare. False Gurus know well how best to exploit people who come under their shelter.
Satyadharma unloads the baggage of learning people carry on their heads. It initiates de-learning processes that culminates to provide the vision and the vista to relearn all over again. It’s like bringing back the lost innocence because in innocence rests ones real nature, the consciousness in its natural purity.
Satyadharma is living the life of the mind, nurturing the mind and its quality. It is totally different from a religion. Mind is enveloped in endless thoughts. Its real nature manifest when ignorance is removed.
Humans are spiritual beings, their spirituality rests in deep slumber and it needs to be awakened. Satyadharma is the process to trigger this awakening, and the curiosity to know more about ourselves is the awakening of self knowledge.
We mistakenly see ourselves as physical body, mind and ego and forget our true nature the state of blissful consciousness. Incorrectly we think that our happiness lies in material comforts and carnal pleasure. And so the pursuit of money and sense pleasures becomes the main aim and purpose of our life. But power of money and sensual enjoyment are temporary, they never satisfy, yet create the desire for more.
There is an inner voice of rationality, to hear it, strive a conversation with your inner self. Our relationship with nature and our personal experience bear different definition, which is at variance, with the rest of the world. Self inquiry is a personal experience, its meaning and description differs, from person to person.
All religions begin and finish with God, whereas Satyadharma starts and ends with Human Being. In religion people reach out to God, they may or may not find him, but through Satyadharma people are sure to discover themselves and find out who they are. Satyadharma is completely out of the canons of conjectures, comparisons and control. It is a communiqué to connect with the natural state of being.
Depending on outer assistance to know our inner experiences is to rob of its real results. Be on your own. Once we know that what we seek is accessible within, then someone else idea of how we should live is not needed, there are many ways, choose your own modus operandi to reach the core and essence of your real being.
What Satyadharma is all about? Literally it means the 'Eternal Truth'. Explanations tend to wipe out its essence and definitions get diverted, each one stands to interpret it according to his / own understanding, in doing so, we end up misinterpreting its meaning. When we define Satyadharma, we are inclined to dissect it logically but it is beyond logic, it is after all a search of mystery, to discover the essence of life.. We live in a vast unknowable space hidden with mystery. When all is not provable, then become a part of mystery, without knowing it, yet living in it.
Satyadharma is neither in thoughts nor a creation of any school of thought nor is it found in books, it is a matter of self experience. It is practical and not guesswork. People seek solace in the spiritual. Spirituality for the modern man is not confined to his religion, it is more about seeking deeper truths, and attaining self knowledge, developing lack of pretension and becoming conscious about the natural state of human existence. This natural state of life and living is not a thing to be achieved, but an integral part of every human being.
In a blissful state of consciousness the finest potential flows out of people and human physical faculty’s functions better and reach a higher level of energy. Ecstasy unchains the fetter of limitations. We need to activate our inner energies in such a way that body, mind and emotions function, at the highest peak of consciousness. Satyadharma is a technique, to find this ultimate expression of life.
Beyond human consciousness far away from cosmic consciousness there exists an uncreated condition. Hard it is to know. Yet the inquest to seek what lies beyond human limitations is so tenacious that even if the human mind cannot reach there it tries to get there, in vain. The journey of life is not meant to meet manmade benchmark of money, power and fame. In fact the voyage of life moves towards eternity. Where time does not end, eternity begins. In eternity there is no destination. All natural processes aim to grow human awareness, working to make human race conscious on its trip to eternity. Only consciousness can follow eternity like a shadow.
Every human being has an instinctive right to go ahead with his life the way he wants to lead it. He may or may not follow any religion. Satyadharma is simply a personal choice and not something that can be forced on anyone even if it gives a wider perception of life. When the mind is open the idea of Satyadharma can come like a suggestion. However the response must come from within.
Satyadharma reveals nothing new but takes the mind to eternal realities. The knowledge of the eternal elevates the human consciousness to higher levels of understanding. Then every thing is viewed on relative terms. Uniformity and diversity becomes one and the composition of the cosmos begins to unfold its dependence on the natural laws of co-existence and interdependence. If we recognize all men are one, then we should also recognize that each man is different too. All men are one is a absolute principle. Each man is different is a relative principle. Relative unity cannot exist without differences, which means human differences and oneness are two sides of a coin.
Intuition is a hidden feature of the human mind this is something which comes naturally and is not definable. It is true that there is something beyond the physical world. Satyadharma awakens the power of Spirituality to unravel the invisible realms beyond what is visible to the ordinary naked human eye.
Satyadharma is the connection to the thoughtless state of consciousness. This is the pure state of being. Once we enter this state we link ourself with collective consciousness. Then we are no more an individual entity, we become a universal being. Then we see the entire mankind and the world as one and identify our universal nature of oneness.
Human body and mind rest on the matter-energy axis. Energy is referred as the spirit, the sum total of mind and emotions. The word Satyadharma represents this concept. Satyadharma cannot be shaped like a religion. It remains in its pristine form forever. One can simply experience the subtleness of energy fields from within and outside.
It is necessary to be familiar with the state of consciousness, which is always tied together with the body-mind entity. The human mind lives on the outer layer of knowing. But the inner being is something more than the shell knowledge of the mind. The art of knowing the ‘Inner Being’ is Satyadharma.
Satyadharma is neutral on the existence and non-existence of God. The unseen God of religions is based on human imagination. But the laws of nature are evident and they never go unnoticed. Satyadharma believes in the law of Karma, what we sow is what we reap. If we make a mistake we are bound to face its consequences. If we recognize this fundamental principle of Karma, we would surely be more careful with our deeds and thoughts.
Satyadharma reflects on the fundamental question akin to, who am I? This means humans crave to browse the manual of life and living, the world has not produced or published so far. The curiosity to know, educates the mind to see things in its proper perspective, whereas self-consciousness is a spiritual attainment.
Miracles in the name of religion are tricks to dodge reality and mount erroneous belief on the followers. It serves to suppress the spirit of free inquiry, and promotes blind faith. Satyadharma shows the way to verified and verifiable facts. It does not formulate any theory or therapy. It evokes the rationale and brings respect for natural living.
Satyadharma promotes self introspection, which overcomes human weakness and makes one strong to face adverse situations in life serenely. Challenges are a part of life they come and go. Be prepared to deal with setbacks in life, and have faith that all problems have a solution.
To be truthful to oneself is the essence of all spiritual studies. From diverse information loaded by a variety of religions and cultures, Satyadharma distills it to a state of oneness. It is through self discovery purity of heart and harmony is achieved.
The undefined cannot be confined to a category. Satyadharma is a constant mystical longing, the freedom to find a way to think beyond thoughts. The feeling of being in communion with oneself, scaling the level of consciousness, to rise above, to a state beyond explanation, an idea much bigger than the actual experience.
Human beings face the dilemma to decide their own actions. All other creatures simply act on their natural instincts according to their nature. But in human beings instincts spin around their body and spirituality rests at the core of their mind, this dichotomy needs a balancing act. human beings constantly struggle to get this act right. life is a laboratory, all living species get a chance to experiment and rise to a higher level of evolution. To accelerate this process, Satyadharma equips people to opt right actions, to meet their material and spiritual needs.
Satyadharma talks about things as they are and not the way they are perceived differently by each human being. It does not rely on the last word of a preacher although it believes in the law of constant change and new beginnings. No master or messiah or religion can assert to hold on to their writ for long, sooner or later the inevitable law of change prevails to discard the old and establish a new social order. Satyadharma belongs to one and all. It has a universal appeal. It trains to think independently and helps to look into the realities of life.
Religions were invented as a consequence of human endeavor to find happiness. Mired by the spillover of valid and invalid implications, let no one ask anyone to pick up a religion, this would certainly isolate him from the fundamental truth. Let each person seek independently to know the truth. If people are not born with a religion no one would follow any religion. That's for sure.
Satyadharma is not based on speculation but a truth-seeking trial, a dialogue with self, which is subtle and sublime. We all live in a state of sleep, in a dream world of our own making. There are moments when we are awake and become conscious about our trancelike condition. Most of the time we are in deep slumber, we never ever try to know why we are here and what the purpose of our life is. In order to know this we must know ourselves and come out from our state of inattentiveness. We are in fact lost in daydreaming, living a life choked with delusion and deception. We must stop deceiving ourselves and wake up.
The quest to know our-self is a natural trait of a reasonable mind. Self knowledge is the beginning and self realization is the end. This gives meaning to human life. We live the life of the mind more often rather than on the physical level. Mind is the powerhouse of conscious and unconscious energies, to know this, we need to experience and channelize these energies in a natural process of evolution. Self knowledge activates ones dormant powers and realize the interdependence of all living beings and non-living things as a common denominator. No knowledge is knowledge unless it is lived and experienced. Then truth is no more an idea but a way of life.
With self realization one is at peace with himself. Free from the trappings of sexual desires, anger, greed, ego and attachments. We carry this baggage and mess up the world with loads of labels, once we unload it then what radiates is the purity of heart, love and compassion, the basic spiritual virtues.
The social nature of mind pursues worldly success and the spiritual nature of mind seeks that which is within. Living a superfluous materialistic life brings exhaustion, whereas internal quest leads to the source of boundless energy. The inner and the outer are not two but a single entity with different attributes. The body and the mind have its own equation and consciousness links them together. Living a life of body or the mind brings unhappiness. Living life with consciousness brings happiness and harmony.
We dwell in a man-made world. We have snapped our connection with the natural world, we need to reconnect ourselves with nature. When living at the center of existence, we find the same life, the same urge, the same quest, the same inquest, the same agony, the same ecstasy, everything is same. There are no divisions but oneness of mankind, and the existence of one world.
The conscience or the inner self is centered on moral values. A sense of right and wrong is developed, which helps to scrutinize and separate the good from the bad. When we learn to listen to this inner voice, before we do something, then our thoughts and deeds are in total sync with self and fellow beings.
Nature has programmed mankind to graduate from raw instincts to reason, from reason to spirituality. Time is ripe and ready to embrace the state of spirituality. Sightless multiple layers of energy and unsighted dimensions are everywhere, which exist beyond human comprehension. They are invisible, powerful and all pervading. Fusion with these forces is a spiritual endeavor. Gaining this knowledge creates a new consciousness for a new world order, adding the element of cosmic intelligence.
There are people who put their whole life in the quest of religion and others get fanatical about God and spend a lifetime looking for an imagined divine outcome. Spirituality frees people from this mental repression. It is important to de-link spiritualism from religion. A 'Satyadharmic' approach to natural life is far more important to ones sense of well-being then blindly following religious texts, beliefs and rituals.
Satyadharma does not demand blind faith from its practitioners. A 'Satyadharmic' is not a slave to a book or to any Guru or God, nor he forfeits freedom of thought. He uses his freewill and develops his own understanding, from his personal experience, removing all fetters and factors. He uses his own way of thinking, to understand himself, as to what is right or wrong. He attempts himself cautiously, to gain transparency and self-reliance, instead of prayer he prefers meditation, to promote self discipline, self-control and self-enlightenment, free from slavish mentality.
The spirit of religious conviction has disappeared from religion. Spirituality alone can render the worn out redundant religions. The model of Satyadharma, which imbibes the essence of spirituality is intended to stimulate a meaningful debate before the paradigm shift takes place; even otherwise the reshaping of religions is almost certain to happen. Satyadharma will finally snap this vicious cycle, as a solution to a problem, an unmarked playground of perception, that gives room to contemporary point of view, to impel change and go forward, without claiming to be the final word.
Human life is made of thoughts and emotions, intentions and actions, genetic engineering and surrounding, past experiences and memories, rushing rudderless, to fulfill drifting desires. Under these floating conditions, each person is required, to spend a little time alone, and talk to himself. Soliloquy with inner-self helps to strike a balance within. It also helps to evaluate, where a person stands in life, and to be, the way he is, by his own nature. Self discovery and assessment of his connection with the world around him is an essential part of spiritual practice.
Self introspection is to feel and discover the inner self, our life and the lives of those who are around us and to know both the inner self and the outer shell. The strength of life rests on the stability of our inner being. One can have all the riches in the world and still be dissatisfied. We live only once and life is too short so move ahead fast to create a sense of balance within.
Religion is consistent it conforms to a specific pattern. It is struck in a grove, we need to break this pattern and look at things in a totality and not just accept the conformist way. Apart from reorganizing what we know, we need to look afresh at what we normally take for granted. Religions make and compel all to think alike in a typified herd mentality, no one is encouraged to suggest improvement. He who dares is send to the gallows. Religions make the simple complicated and Swadharma makes the complicated simple.
We need to pursue both ways of life the material as well the spiritual to survive. Both are essential for our external and internal development. But in the pursuit of material goals we tend to overlook our inner stirrings. Spirituality is the process to draw away from the external to the internal entity of things, unfolding the inner vision, which is our real nature. Materialism helps to sustain our mundane life but spiritual life is something higher to evolve human beings.
In which direction human society must move together? It should put together the human mind and emotion on a spiritual level. Mankind must create a universal idea of divinity and oneness of humanity. Swadharma the new spirituality will not be a policy but a real life practical. Being experimental it will allow people to experience and nurture what is appropriate for them.
Why wait to make a new start. Start it now and make an end for a new beginning. One has to live with the realities of life, there are no preferred picks the shades of life has its own color. The spiritual aims are peace of mind, wisdom and a state of self realization.
Truth is not timeless. Truth is served in a constantly changing time. Our efforts must be to discover the ways and means to develop futuristic tools and try to make them accessible to as many people as possible and not pull it out from anybody.
There is a constant conflict between the body and the mind. The burden of differences is difficult to deal with. We are in a dilemma, living two different lives, the physical and the mental. Spirituality harmonizes them. When we realize oneness in it, the contradiction of duality disappears. Oneness becomes the center, the balance, the cog of harmony between the two. There is neither a starting point nor a dead end for spiritual life but a chain of mystic events.
Spiritual sensibility comes from spiritual enquiry. Answers to such questions like ‘Who am I?’ ‘What is the purpose of life?’ ‘Where shall I go after death?’ Go beyond the scope of human understanding. Response to mystical questions come from consciousness. Enter the domain of cosmic consciousness, where mind stops questioning and starts communicating in silence. Spirituality is in 'being' and becoming one with this cosmic mystery. Infinite is the reservoir of cosmic knowledge hence human quest for knowledge never ends. As the taste of salt is present everywhere in the ocean, the law of nature is present everywhere in the universe. Nature is the creator of all things that exist in space. Therefore, nature is God.
The mind is neither here nor there, it is within us. Look within the mind and see a person beyond the persona, which is the real inner self. The journey to find the inner self is spirituality. Spirituality is not something to do at a later stage of life. It is something that is to be done in all areas of life to meet ends, paying bills, earning money, raising family etc. Being spiritual is a state of being and not a phase of life. Take away the Gods and the Goddesses from the lifeless places of worship, to the living hearts of men and women, where godliness dwells and not God.
Religions are manipulated by the priest. Rare is their willingness to debate reforms. Ridiculing, criticizing and imposing bans on religions is counter productive. Ideally one should create an environment, where false religious ideas find no place. Deriding religion can trigger hostilities. In a free society vocal variations 'for' and 'against' exist together. What is good for one cannot be good for another. Without disparaging any religion the revival of spirituality is essential. Spirituality is the pure and authentic form of religion. It enlightens a human being to live naturally.
Generally, people are not interested to know how living beings, non-livings beings and the universe were created and who the creator is. They simply want to know how to lead a happy life. They spend their life in search of prosperity and peace of mind. They want a society based on ethical structure and not on religious scriptures. People know that religion is regional and spirituality is universal, while religion is an ideology and spirituality is a part of human nature. It is a fact, whatever ways religions may employ, the world can never be converted to one religion thus conflicts in the name of religions will never cease. All religious ideas have become stale but spirituality has no expiry date. It keeps on relocating to a new age blending the values of a constantly changing era.
Spirituality is the path of righteousness. It is a catalyst that transforms the mind. Wisdom is the base of spiritual life. The practitioners of spirituality judge their thoughts, feelings and their intentions, impartially, objectively and independently, without leaving it on others to judge them. By running into the mind, they watch the flow of thoughts, observing them carefully, they discern the lesser and a higher thought, by self-corrective measures. Introspection and self-analysis are initial stages to become a silent observer of the ones own self. When all inner promptings stop, it is to be and become a part of the natural process of nature.
Spirituality is about living a life in a manner, where one is sensitive towards others feelings, he is a friend when some one needs him and the one who understands the value of human relationship fully. In a spiritual experience, pure awareness reveals itself, as the maker of reality. The person suddenly discovers that he is not the body or the thinker or the thought, but a natural state of 'Being'.
There is a constant conflict between knowledge and ignorance, between dream and reality, conscience does the balancing act and developing the sense of right and wrong comes from spiritual understanding. In Satyadharma you are your own god. Your own god is the reflection of your own godliness. The holiness of this god is the mirror image of righteousness. The qualities of godliness are worthy to be practiced and not to be worshiped. Satyadharma is rational and universal in applicability. It advocates radical, social and spiritual point of view, in which all religious differences fade and become spiritual truths.
Satyadharma is a spiritual awakening, not a heavenly presumptuous journey, it is rooted to ground reality. When castles in air are built, people move away from reality, and end up in confusion and doubt. Living in reality, try not to push away the constantly changing ways of the world or the uncertainty and the pain of living on earth. Discover the love that will not die and develop the heart as the center of affection. Don’t think of going to heaven, when destined to live and die on earth. Live life wholly and take joy in what one is and what one has, without relating it to the scale of success or failure, which is meaningless terminology. Look at life as a play. Become a spectator and enjoy the show, as a comedy or a tragedy.
Satyadharma is not an institution like religion is, having a holy book, with no rights to amend. One has to individually experience spirituality. It is a matter of individual effort and does not rest on any rigid concepts. There is no fixed definition of spirituality, definitions are not truthful. One person’s definition can be a piece of disinformation to another person. It is true, the impulse of cosmic consciousness is continuously vibrating around us, eager to connect with a human receptor. This bonding is a personal spiritual experience. There is no language in the world to describe or classify the meaning of this connection. Time has come for people to accept that religions don’t necessarily know the truth. He alone knows who has experienced it.
Satyadharma is necessary for the growth of humanity. It makes one creative, loving, sharing and compassionate. All moral values spring up in the heart of a person who treads on the path of spirituality, it is a natural part of every human being. Spirituality is the philosophy of life. It is not something to believe but something to be lived, something to be experienced, it is not a belief planted by religion in the minds of the people from birth. Spirituality is the essence of a human being.
Self understanding is the best way to sensate a persons feeling for faith. Thereafter, from the level of his personal understanding he can conceptualize his own faith, which needs no assertions from outside but is the reflection of his inner being. This personal version of faith is meant exclusively for him and not for anyone else.
The material world does not provide answers to many questions. Dissatisfaction with the material world makes one spiritual. Spiritual quest goes beyond the material world into a multi-dimensional mysterious world. It gives a new meaning to spirituality. We all need to understand. It is no more concerned with god, soul, heaven or hell, theologies or anti-theologies, the theist or the atheist. It becomes a search to connect oneself with cosmic consciousness, the exploration that leads to vast space of emptiness, the void, the infinity.
People spend their whole life in learning and not thinking. Spirituality heightens perception and awareness to think. One becomes aware of the constant interplay of energies between a person and the world. One becomes aware that the whole universe is full of vibrations. These vibrations come in contact with a fully conscious person and is transformed into thoughts. Giving thoughts the power to guide them the way they want to live. Besides, there is a state of a blissful presence within everyone, whether one is aware of it or not, everyone must make an effort to be in this presence. This presence is consciousness, a state of pure being.
Spiritual belongings don’t come with religious baggage. The presence of consciousness is a personal connect with higher energies present in all places. Under the presence of consciousness, one feels stable and spiritually active. Spirituality means to be in sync with inner self, the consciousness. It is not about sitting in front of an idol and worshipping it. Being a personal exercise, it has nothing to do with religion. It is to believe and have faith in oneself.
Spirituality has been defined many times, at times clearly and at times vaguely. Satyadharma aims to conceptualize and redefine the essence of spirituality, keeping all ambiguities at bay. Whenever an idea is to gain acceptance and compliance of the people, universal and timeless spiritual truths are used, even though their eternal worth stands devalued by religions. Concepts are never perfect, as all data cannot be made available in a model, which leaves scope to upgrade. The probability people would question the basis of Satyadharma, a personal religion is always there, difference of opinions will never cease, it will exist forever.
Satyadharma is a positive deviant that defy the norms of conventional religious practices. It is likely to develop faster because it has no hierarchy or a periphery or a center of control. Besides, the world is at the threshold of a religionless society. Satyadharma will not be the death knell of religions. Society cannot be freed from religions suddenly. Seeing the decline of religions the future of Satyadharma appears to be bright.
Religions have erred by taking cover of terrorism and holding the world to ransom, by doing so religions have overstretched their limits. There is bound to be a strong collective reaction, to pin down religions by spiritual activism under the aegis of Satyadharma.
The idea that spirituality means denying the luxuries of life is not correct, both facets of life material and spiritual are equally important so people must connect their consciousness with all activities of life. Be alert and infuse everything with spiritual insight. Though spirituality lies in inner awakening but it changes the material surroundings, radically.
In the vast vacant space there is nothing but emptiness, even things which occupy a little space of this vastness, appear and disappear as a spec of dust in the cosmic infinity. Human beings fear the unknown. The power of fear is very strong in all living beings. It is not the fearful but the fittest who survive.
Man is the master of animal kingdom. Man has hardly any threat from other animals but man himself is still a threat to man. To keep a check on mans control over man, morality and laws were framed and enforced. Since there was no other superior species that could rule over man, the concept of God, as a superior being was created as a regulator, religions produced to enforce religious beliefs.
Within the sphere of spirituality, the question whether God exists or not is meaningless. God is talked about by the one who believes in his existence and the one who does not. Spirituality does not focus on God but only on man and his nature and the source from which the thought of ‘I’ comes. The inquiry starts from the question ‘Who am I?’ and ends with the response ‘That thou art’ but what is ‘I’ is an enigma. That which is born before is not ‘I’ and that which is born after is not ‘I’. But that which comes into life becomes ‘I’ and that which returns back to source is ‘I’. The ‘I’ never comes or goes, it is always here. Since ‘I is’, therefore, ‘I am’.
Satyadharma is to know the beginning, the middle part and the end of life. This helps to enhance the quality of life, and gives life the joy of celebration. It makes life, to live naturally, and truthfully to negate falsehood. It is the exploration and discovery of oneself. It is spending some time with oneself alone. It is making efforts to introspect and it is at the same time to be up righteous and reasonable. Everyone is here to live his own truth.
When the voice of conscience is heard, then the journey towards righteousness begins. Don’t hesitate to err or fail. Failures has led to success. Failure and success are relative terms. Worldly success is judged by wealth and spirituality by wisdom. Too much of wealth is acquired by fools but too much of wisdom is too little for the wise. When a person departs, it is not wealth but wisdom that goes with him. Money, fame and power are illusions. The art of letting go is to be mastered to gain spiritual wisdom.
With heavy dose of greed injected in a money sedated society, people have no time to pursue spirituality. In this situation a thought of detachment can bring mental peace and happiness and negate pain, ill will and confusion.
Spirituality is an experience, a breakthrough and a work-in-progress. Even when answers stop coming, the process of questioning does not stop. In the never-ending cosmic emptiness, response to nothingness is nothing. Learn to rest in this wilderness and stop seeking answers from emptiness. In the realm of the unknown, questions are answered by questions. When all questions of the seeker start disappearing in the cosmic void, then the mind comes to rest in emptiness, nothingness, the eternity. This is the great spiritual secret of the sages.
Satyadharma controls and makes the mind stable. It is the meeting point of good thoughts and good deeds. Its mission is not material but spiritual. Spirituality is simplicity of thought and deed. Every action counts as every deed has a ripple effect. A spiritual person is connected to ground realities, right knowledge, and the knack to know, how mind evolves. Spirituality is not bound by rules. It uses freewill, to make the right choices for spiritual gains, it is the process to understand how human consciousness works, and how it influences thinking.
Whatever people do, will come back to them, life takes a full circle. Good deeds get praise, bad deeds insult. Sometimes it seems a person will get away with bad deeds but pays for it, in a way no one can perceive or know. The world throws back to us what we give, so be careful about your deeds. Good deeds may give happiness but there is no formula for happiness. What makes one happy may not give the same kind of happiness to someone else. The level of happiness tends to change from one individual to another individual. Happiness can be summed up as an attitude, a state of mind.
God or man does not dictate how others should live a spiritual life. Everyone has his own take, when views and opinions are thrust, repulsion is possible. Spirituality will stay as long mystery is there. Mysteries are never revealed fully. Revealing mystery is an unending process. When mystery is discovered, it ends up becoming more and more mysterious, there is more mystery in the infinite space, then can be ever known. Cosmic mystery is hard to decipher, no one can ever know this impenetrable reality, but those who follow Spirituality are able to demystify the mystery that surrounds the world and the universe, little by little but not the cosmic puzzle fully.
People have the knack to determine truth and falsehood and develop their own way of life, which is centered on their need and interest. Spirituality packs people with natural principles and rejects the supernatural and relies on reason, freedom of thought, humanism and universalism. We are free to think, free to express our thoughts and free to practice our own ideology. Free to visualize and free to scrutinize, free to dream and free to hope, free to judge and free to decide. Spirituality is the joy of being free, when unhooked to religion.
There is no religion in the world that deserves praise. Why should one believe false religious percepts? Why should one wait, for the God of religion, to do justice? Why shouldn’t one take away the church, temple or mosque visiting habit of the people? Even if the God of religion appears before people, they are likely to disagree with his attitude and ideas. The God of religion is not the source of good, nor is he good himself. God is nature, world is an outcome of nature and the whole cosmos is a natural place. The Gods of all religion are fiction.
Reason is the right track to gain knowledge. Faith in God, miracle and magic, divine revelation, holy healing and altered states of insight through hallucinating drugs are useless, indeed. It is baffling that intuition, gut feelings, hunches, the sixth sense, the occult, visions, flashes of inspiration and emotions though not suitable for right knowledge continue to be a source of curiosity of intelligent minds even today, who are brooding to find new ways to look at the world weirdly even if the world is normal.
Spirituality knows the continuation of ethical impasse and the need of moral declaration. It is concerned with the attitude of those in love with life. There are no prefabricated solutions to the problems of life. One should enjoy the open journey and the freedom of discovery it entails. There is no evidence of a separate soul so the promise of a supposed life after death is fictitious.
Spirituality defends the rights of all people to choose their way, to speak, to think and to write freely, to live their lives according to their own likes. It brings a new era of understanding where each person has the right to choose his own belief and develop the sensibility to evolve into a much centered person having a multi-dimensional outlook, which goes beyond commonsense.
Spirituality is not a public expression but a personal revelation. It gets inspiration from the heart. The center of all thoughts is the mind and the center of all emotions is the heart. Both are symbolically addressed and are not the organ of the body. The center of the mind is not the physical brain and the center of emotions is not the physical heart. They are subtle centers of the body. Even soul is not a separate entity. It is a name given to the mind. When all these subtle centers dissolve in consciousness nothing is left except a state of being and the non-being.
Change is a part of life. The meaning of life keeps on changing. One can be a materialist at one moment and turn into a spiritualist another moment. The life of a person is connected with thinking, it lasts as long as one thought lasts, and ends the moment that thought comes to an end. Only moments of pragmatism bring a paradigm shift in the way of thinking, to make one a good person and a good citizen of the world and regain the harmony and rhythm of life. There is no chaos in the composure of the cosmos.
Practicing religion in its traditional form must be stopped. Religion and nationalism have been the reason for a lot of clash and cruelty in this world. Religion has outlived its utility and so are nation’s fragmented boundaries collapsing in this age of globalization.
Material value is wealth and material possessions. Moral value is good conduct and righteousness. Cultural value is art and architecture. Religious Value is God and Soul. Spiritual value is humanism and realism. Values are the goals of life. Mind is the source of all values, out of all, only spirituality is a human trait. Spiritual values are human values, moral values are social values, both are essential, rest all is superfluous features of society.
Spirituality separates the good from bad. Religion with its fictional, flimsy, frivolous and fictitious outlook does not appeal to a reasonable man. Spirituality is the common thread that binds all faiths in the oneness of humanity. Practical theology is spiritual knowledge, which is applied to raise inner understanding and to grasp the reality of the outer world.
There is a power that supercedes everything in life. This is the power of natural forces, which in its raw explanation was understood symbolically as objects of nature, ever since mankind learned to communicate with signs and sounds with each other. When book writing started, the authors of religions created the concept of God. Mankind took this too seriously for more than three thousand years but now the god of religion looks like a comic character. Spirituality does not perceive the existence of a God created by religions but acknowledges the existence of nature as God. Its philosophy is to make the life of human beings natural and meaningful.
Lots of things are supposed and sermonized to strengthen religious beliefs. Lots of books are written to inculcate religious values. But pushing spirituality to the background is not that easy. The spiritual interest group is coming up fast in the forefront. Stuffing peoples mind with religious speculations is eventually taking them away from reality. This is the reason, why people are moving backward and the evil of religious fanatics is spreading like wild fire. This religious misadventure will fail sooner or later.
No theory can capture the free spirit of Satyadharma. It goes beyond knowledge, talks and books. Spirituality constitutes the invisible energizing force, hidden within a person by the veil of endless thoughts and desires. One can experience it directly. To know listen, reflect and question various options consciously to reach there. Be objective and cultivate a sharp focus and fairness and swap mundane activities with pious ideas by self-effort. Whether one believes in this religion or that religion, people are certainly looking for happiness in their life.
Satyadharma is the skill of experiencing life and not frittering away time in abstract theories. It is based on the principles of practical life. Spirituality is not the study of academicians and philosophers. It is a metaphysical world of reality. Satyadharma defines the disclosure of spiritual truths. Intense spiritual experience is instant and is not gained by books or rituals or prayers or penances. One simply needs to experiment and test spirituality in the laboratory of his body-mind to find the truth.
Religious experiences are disgusting as they are mired with superstition and irrationality. Spiritual quest is to discover the deepest truth, with the aim to know the cause behind the existing facts of life and living.
Religions must adjust with Satyadharma for universal harmony and return to its spiritual core. Academicians should make religions a part of curriculum and teach all religions as a subject of theology to all school going children irrespective to which religion they belong. Familiarity of religions brings a sense of appreciation for each other. When people across the world have no reservations in eating food and hearing to music from all around the world, without asking which language or culture it belongs. Why can’t people take care of all religions in the same manner?
A spiritual person is one who is curious about truth, who investigates truth and follows truth. Spirituality is a unifying faith common to all; it is the choice of the prudent. Truth is not realized through books or lectures or intellectual efforts. Truth is experienced, it dawns upon you, in silent contemplation and transmits through silence and then all doubts are cleared. This ultimate insight is beyond the reach of mind and speech. The knowledge to reach truth, after all is the highest aim of man.
Sex has no place in spiritual practices. Sex is for procreation, it regulates reproduction of species. Human beings have no mating season, so they can indulge in sex anytime anywhere. World of art and literature, media and movies use sex to seduce the minds of the people, by projecting sex as a perennial source of pleasure. As sex sells, even old people are not spared. They are encouraged to be sexually active. Worst, some religious practices propagate that sex leads to super-consciousness. An Indian sex guru boasted that he slept with more women than Casanova did. All this is foolish, a creation of a sick mind. Such ideas are meant to arouse sex in the mind of the people, just to lust for pleasure, and not for any biological reasons. As a result, sex related crimes are increasing in the world.
Spiritual life begins with a conviction that truth is the aim of all existence. Truth is one and same. Those who do not seek truth fail to see the purpose of life. The heart of reality is in the deeds of compassion, in loving humanity and in selfless service to mankind, in the bond of brotherhood and in the oneness of the world. Salvation is a stage of growth, where a person becomes pragmatic and virtuous and then reaches the stage of spiritual maturity where he grasps the perfection and symmetry of things. The highest level of spirituality is to make the world a place where harmony, kindness, love and justice exist.
No religion can save humanity, religions have failed to discard fanaticism and develop a rational scientific temper. Spiritual advancement in terms of thought, word and deed is a step in the right direction. This is possible without seeking external help. When religious fanaticism is taking a turn for the worst, it is necessary to gain freedom from the grip of religions.
Human being is a big puzzle. Have humans evolved from apes or they are spiritual beings? People have different opinions. Some say, human beings are shrewd, self-serving animals driven by instincts. Others believe they are thinking and speaking creatures. Some argue that they are social animals seeking happiness, striving for freedom and harmony as well as longing to be something else. The fact is that man is what his mind is. Mind is the decisive factor of human life. Mind is the river of thoughts, rationality an anchor. Be rational to reach the shore.
Instinctive behavior is the ability to stay alive in the struggle for survival, where only greed and selfishness matters than anything else. Animal instincts are focused to preserve, reproduce and regulate. Material progress is a ground based reality of civilization. Consequently, people have what they want and have more than what they need to have. Still people are not satisfied with these creature-centric comforts. Only Satyadharma can transform people from a lower animal instincts to a higher spiritual being.
Religionists say religions are the crystallization of the collective consciousness of the wise, so it cannot be wrong or worthless. What one cannot understand is, why religious fanaticism is fanned by the safe keepers of religion? Isn’t it all about power politics and the manipulation of the masses? Can we say that such religions are right and valuable? Religious beliefs are actually the validation that people need to convince themselves that everything in the garb of religion is right. Religious beliefs, after all, are not a reality.
The word spirituality and religion is used interchangeably. It is a ploy of religions to distort the essence of spirituality. Spirituality is not a organized religion. Religion is a public belief institution governed by a rigid authority of the priest, mullah and the pundit, while spirituality is an inner belief system, managed by an individual.
In life there is happiness and sorrow. When things go wrong, people pray, for God to set it right. Spirituality does not rely on prayers or external assistance. It simply makes a person aware of the ups and downs of life and instills the courage to believe in what he does. If he tries to do something he doesn’t believe in, he will lose his balance and the energy to carry on. Those who go through pain and suffering in life, emerge stronger. Life is a tug of war between pain and pleasure.
We must give Satyadharma a description and definition not by clumsy drafting but by sane write-ups to avoid confusion and brings clarity. We also need to disclose that Satyadharma is different from religion. It is a choice to accept facts of life or reject the falsehood of religious beliefs.
Consciousness intrigues the spiritual seeker. When things come in contact with senses, feelings are produced. Feelings create thoughts. Thoughts a mindset layered by ego, intellect etc. Beyond mind is consciousness, which is our true nature. Mind is not consciousness, it is in the labyrinth of consciousness, struck in a subtle way, difficult to discern. Mind exists either in past or future but consciousness remains in the present 'Now'. If consciousness is neither a body, nor a mind, nor a separate entity, then is it merely the vital essence, a portion of life force, the breath, which pervades the whole universe?
Satyadharma expounds spirituality rationally. It does not rely on the authority of a preceptor. Truth is the last word. No master or messiah can claim it. No religion has a hold on it. It belongs to one and all. Its universal application appeals, the technique of dynamic living. We need to look from the platform of spirituality to make an independent assessment of truth, without relying on religions, gurus or swamis or the priest, mullah and the pundit.
Science provides technology that makes life better and comfortable. No one is against it. But this not all, it is only the circumference and not the center of life. Spiritualism or materialism alone is not enough, to reach the center. Spirituality can turn into escapism, when one is too much concerned about his inner being, he becomes an introvert. While materialism splurges wealth by raising the level of greed wanting more and more, yet there is something missing in life. This something is grasped by spirituality not by scientific scrutiny. It is content and consciousness. It is objective as well as subjective. The world exists because of the viewer. The same world is viewed differently by human beings, animals and birds. The idea of a world is the creation of mind. Otherwise the world is nothing but a lump of clay, a spec of dust, drifting aimlessly in the endless cosmic space.
Do we have an individuality? Is our individuality mortal or immortal? Our upbringing is an outcome of a learning procedure tutored by parents and teachers and is not developed by self-learning. All knowledge acquired by us belongs to others. We exist in our imagination in context of others imagined ideas. In relative terms individuality for social interactive needs may exists for the sake of expediency but in absolute terms we have no individuality and no existence beyond the endless immensity of space, we are part formlessness, where the identification of a person, the world, the universe and space-time is dissolved.
Will religions, creeds and divergent beliefs reconcile their differences with each other, despite their former rivalry? Human attitude is becoming liberal, a better time to be loving and living together in camaraderie, by forgetting and forgiving, what happened in the past. The age of human fellowship is becoming a reality. The 21st century will be the testing time of religions. All creeds, cultural, racial and national prejudices, will be abandoned soon, by all the people all over the world. All nations will become one home and mankind one family, living in peace and prosperity under the rule of one Global Government, a union of all nations. This is not a prophecy but a sign of coming events.
In a economically developed educated world, man has no longer to struggle to survive. His physical evolution is in danger of diminishing by rampant use of technology but development of his mind stands to evolve manifold. What might happen in future is the evolution of super consciousness through spirituality or Satyadharma. The inner transformation of mind will automatically translate into outer changes. Therefore, every individual should try to uplift himself spiritually, and live in accordance with the laws of nature, evolving the human race to a higher level.
When people are not spiritual and rational, ignorance spreads over the world, giving birth to sects, false gurus and superstitions that spring up speedily, putting innocent people in abyss. If a genuine reformist movement to spread spirituality arrives, which comes but rarely, people must welcome it, if people are not ready to accept it, at least they should debate, to make it acceptable to people. Change is after all inevitable, to ignore it is totally incorrect.
Religions are woven by the thread of Spirituality, yet religion are dealt with a non-spiritual attitude. There is no equation between a spiritual being and a religious person. Spirituality depends on actions not sermons. Spirituality is
inner connection, harmony between body and mind. Life has too many unanswered questions and the need to know as much as one can, this is what drives them to learn more and more, what books cannot teach. Faith in oneself is the best way to deal this perplexing issue, while self-reliance gives a sense of practical expectation rather being hopeful for miracles to happen, through prayers or by visiting places of worship, or chanting meaningless words.
How long will fanatics bleed humanity and cling to intolerance? How long can we live on ancient fables, superstitions, blind beliefs, waging religious wars and terrorist acts and the ignorance of Dark Age? Aren’t we obstructing the emergence of an enlightened age? By now, a new life is stirring and simmering within us, feel the impulse, the inclination and find out its intention. It is time to spread love and fellowship and treat all human beings as one. Selfless service to humanity must be the foremost motive of each person.
Outward manifestation of spirituality unfolds into a collective sense of belonging of people and the world, as one unified entity, where universal brotherhood, love, compassion and peace has a unifying effect. Textbook knowledge becomes meaningless. Universal brotherhood and one world is happening actually, people who can interpret world trends admit. Through spiritual awakening, planet earth will emerge as one world without nations and spirituality will become a global religion of a religionless world.
When all technologies and knowledge in the world are converging, why should humanity have different religions? If the common good is universal welfare, righteous conduct, truth and non-violence then why do we need so many religions? Spirituality is a self defined discovery of the self. Self-discovery is the result of inquiry and investigation into the conditions of human life on earth and understanding of the working of human instincts and dispositions. The knowledge of self is sought by each for himself by his own effort.
Brain and senses breed the mind. Rationality nurtures the conscience. The mind-body combo is embraced by consciousness. The center of mind is thoughts. The hub of ego is identity. The interior of intellect is reason. Level-headedness the voice of conscience. These configuration work under the presence consciousness, consciousness the seer is a spiritual substance, it is subtle, imperceptible, indivisible and imperishable, and resides in everyone.
Consciousness presides over all the activities of the body and mind. Being in a state of consciousness is a spiritual experience, where everlasting peace is attained. Spiritual strength is karma, all else is sweat and toil. The whole cosmos is impermanent and perishable, but one important cause dominates the entire activities in space and that is cosmic consciousness, the fundamental principle of existence. The eternal and the real, all else is superimposed. To know the eternal is to know everything. He who lives in awareness of this knowledge comes to experience himself as a witness, who simply watches the drama of life and death, unperturbed.
Who am I? Actually there is no ‘Who’, it is the outcome of a thinking mind. Nature has programmed the human body with natural survival instincts. These innate human impulses are the starting point from where the mind works. This is the source of all thoughts. Rest all is extension of these basic traits.
Living is dying so there is no escape from suffering, desperation and anxiety. Sorrow is the reward of life. The impermanency of life and things is tackled best by developing a sense of renunciation. With detachment one is free, with attachment a captive. Seeing life from a spiritual point of view unfolds a totally different perceptive, it involves a deep notion of inner trust, and opens a whole new track of real life before us.
Do not resist, be open to look at, every spiritual opportunity at hand, and broaden the time frame to scan, what has brought religion to this point, and what the effect of religions is on the future of mankind. Are religions guilty of corrupting the minds of the people with false knowledge? To say that the situation today is no longer congenial for religions to thrive would not be an exaggeration, at all. However, by exercising judicious discernment, people must decide the fate of religions.
How can one develop a spiritual outlook? Spirituality is self-definition and internal self-reformation. The first step towards spirituality starts, when a person decides to identify what spirituality means to him and not what it means to others or in general. The starting point of spirituality is to know yourself. On this roller coaster journey one learns, de-learns and relearns. Start your spiritual journey by asking yourself what is your definition and understanding of spirituality? What improvement you see in your personal life with your views on spirituality? Let answers pour from your inner verbal state of mind and flow with it. Once you merge with consciousness, which is a non-verbal spiritual substance, everything in you drops suddenly. Now there is nothing more for you to know but to 'Be'.
A religionless world is a must for a united and amicable existence of human race. The future world citizen will not be a Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh or Parsee. He will be spiritual and not a religious person.
Spirituality means to become conscious of what you truly are. Spiritual intelligence makes you a contented person. Self realization is to know the mind. It is your mind that makes you what you are. A spiritual person manages to remain calm even in crisis and chaos. It is a search for betterment. As you evolve spiritually, you reach an understanding that you have within you what you seek from others, now you are free to be yourself and you contain the world instead the world containing you.
Each persons understanding depends on the level of his perception, which fluctuates unevenly at various stages of childhood, youth and old age, poles apart, in terms of changing state of mind, and variable levels of understanding, knowing human intellectual capacity is subject to limitations. It is spirituality that takes a person beyond human limitations. Spirituality does not bind itself to any single variety, it varies. It is elementary, practical and easily tested and proved. It dwells in a place where men try to think truthfully and live righteously. It has no priest, no holy city, and no holy book, before which all men must kneel, it is the most accessible and the most tolerant belief system.
Satyadharma is based on man’s knowledge of the nature of things, leading to provable truths, which help to distinguish the essential from the accidental, the timeless from the transient, between dogma and religion, between metaphysical theories and statement of fact, between man-made formulas and eternal truth. It is the religion of truth.
Satyadharma is truth-seeking and enables an individual and not the masses to value moral law that pervades the world. It dispels the illusions created by mind. Truth alone can conquer the evils of error. Truth is not arbitrary nor a matter of opinion, but can be investigated to verify it.
Satyadharma does not promise miracles or magical healing or mystical experiences or a supernatural being. There is no ritual, no prayer, nor a soul to be saved. All places are its temple. It believes in nurturing an individual and not the masses. It is individual-centric and not crowd-centric. It provides the technique to attain enlightenment.
Would life become better by knowing the depth and loftiness of the universe? Or by knowing who the creator of the world is? The common man must simply attend to human needs and leave these blind spots for space scientists to look at. Spiritual thoughts are concerned with ones life and his living. As the vast cosmos is impregnated with one law, the law of life, so is the law of life impregnated with one law, the law of living. So, Satyadharma is not an article of faith or a divine revelation but is one that can be ascertained by self study and personal experience.
Religions have inculcated a feeling of dependence on unknown factors for psychological protection. Religions have invented a God that can help people shape their destinies, only if they believe in God and praise him constantly through prayers. Religions have blindfolded people who aspire for peace and happiness, shelter and support, faith and hope. People should cast away the hopeless, the helpless and the reckless ways of religions and seek light elsewhere, by giving Satyadharma a chance to unfold.
Satyadharma is the study of man. It leads to highest knowledge of everything. Knowledge is massive and complex and thus needs to be comprehended from as many viewpoints as possible. The aim of philosophical inquiry is to comprehend reality. There is no subject more important than spirituality. It involves the most important questions to which different religions give different answers.
The distinctiveness of man among other living beings is well known. His ability to adapt to new conditions and control the surroundings is well within his means. No other living being possess the quality of rational thinking. Therefore man need not depend on a supernatural being to assist him. A lion does not pray to disable his prey. Man has the potential to develop himself. Being and not becoming is the state of human mind. If mysteries of the world baffle us so does the human mind, both are entrenched in the physical world.
What is Satyadharma? It is universal remedy for distressed minds, which is based on reason and experience. It means evolved qualities, like the capacity for empathy, for love, freedom and peace, compassion, striving for justice, longing for beauty and idealism, longing to create, etc. What does being satyadharmic mean? It means being ethical and righteous and being natural as well.
Matter and energy are essential parts of the universe. The ingredients of living entities and non-living things never vanish from the universe, even if the planet on which they exist is totally destroyed. Life force and elements combine in different shapes and resurface in different areas of the cosmos. The cycle of appearance and disappearance of objects is a never-ending. The appearance of living beings and non-living things is seen on a material plane but their disappearance into the energy plane is not visible. The law of recycling of elements is a reality.
The deeds of a spiritual person are not only beautiful but his appearance also becomes beautiful. Spirituality is the relationship one has with oneself and he sees people as one. It is a sense of who one really is his values and his self worth. Problems are a way of life. Spirituality gives a better understanding to handle them. Life can be very complex. Dealing with obstacles sensibly is the only way to overcome them. One should look at the bright side of life but not at the risk of being unrealistic.
People have posed spiritual questions from time immemorial and are still struggling to find answers. A majority of people have asked these questions at some stage of their life out of curiosity or during adversity, to get answers but came out with half-baked religious replies. We live in a scientific age and use technology in our daily life then why hesitate to pursue spirituality in a scientific manner. Religions down the ages was followed with blind faith and got mixed up with false beliefs like superstitions, dogmas and rituals. Spirituality is aloof from such falsifications.
Respect to life begins with respect to oneself. If the tree of life is fertilized with love and care to grow then respect for all living beings develops itself, without human intervention.
On the path of self-knowledge, spirituality is a stream of consciousness. Where thoughts flow like a river gushing from its known coastline to the coast of the unknown. The fear of the unknown is a great psychological barrier, which prevents from drifting further, halting the flow of thoughts, which stagnate. Those who let the river of thoughts surge ahead, reach the shore of eternity, no one can tell where the influence of eternity ends. So let us keep afloat and flow with it. Even elephants can float on water and cross rivers. It is the fear of man that drowns him.
Each person lives on his own terms that none can repeat. As such, each one of us should pave his own path of life and accomplish his preferred goal, arising from his thoughts and what his heart tells him to do. This is a natural spiritual human urge.
Religious leaders, who turn religion into a militant force, lose sight of their religion. But those who gain spiritual strength by putting personal efforts are at no risk, from the rhetoric of a rabble rousing priest, or from religions which rent a mob, or those who regard religious leaders as holy men, or from those who believe that anything a religious leader says is to be followed blindly. Spirituality has no faith in the nonsensical religious implications.
