Simplify Needs To Enlighten

Standard

It is completely impossible to accept or even say that body could play any helpful role in enlightenment beyond the mind. We have by far known that only the mind helps in being enlightened or being one with the universe.

By dropping or ceasing to have any thoughts and unwrapping the different layers of mind’s conscious can help in successfully being enlightened, is the fact we all have known. But could body help in enlightenment is really a debatable and quite confusing thing.

Am also researching more on this myself , as only yesterday i came up with this thought that body can play a very crucial role in helping me enlighten a bit.

As i lay on my bed in afternoon having nothing to do , no work , no chore not even a book to read or play some game, i just kept wandering and dazing around the walls of my room, the clothes hanging , the wardrobe’s mirror, the new cooler, the curtains half drawn over the window and half opened.

As i watched all these i thought “how free i am” and then some more correlating thoughts followed this one, like how really free i am, not working or even doing any home activities, am i ashamed of not having a job or am i that shameful to get household chores done by the maid and not myself .

I kept moving with those thoughts in flow, am so free, people would die to get this free-ness in their lives and here i am all free and doing nothing absolutely nothing, i have a full stomach, with full clothes on, and a soothing room temperature that caresses my open hands , feet , face and my long hair.

Ahh how beautiful the life is here just laying around and gazing what’s in and out of that window. the thoughts still coming, i realized how free i am , i don’t need to work, i don’t need to compete, or i don’t want t to study any further to let other’s know am still in the race, I actually don’t feel the need or desire to do any of that anymore.

What has happened, is anything wrong with me,i don’t feel the urge to get up and ‘DO’ , i feel complete this way, nor am i hungry nor am i shivering. Then what’s is it that makes me feel nothing, i thought even more and realized that the needs of my body are fulfilled , the art is to fill the stomach either with rice or pasta is a choice, the body need’s clothes, its a choice to have comfortable or styled clothes, the body needs air , should it be fan or air conditioner is again a choice.

The way body is satisfied and the needs controlled is the only way to reach out , once the body is fine there’s a way to reach beyond, the mind automatically shut’s down the desires when the needs are met in simplicity. the body craves for food it doesn’t tell you, that you need a pizza to feed the hunger, it never did, its the mind who thinks about giving taste or the choice of food, the task is the same to fill the empty stomach, it could be with a bowl of rice too.

So when we have the bodily need’s are met with simplicity, we no longer have desire’s anymore, the mind slowly starts to drop thoughts that accumulate desires and urges, and then becomes zero at one time, there are no thoughts anymore and thus the mind ceases to happen anymore, the emptiness of thoughts is replaced by consciousness, the body succeeds in arriving at this consciousness where the person seeking enlightenment becomes more awakened and aware about his inner self , there is no more the need to look around for anything , everything is there in itself.

When body is sufficed with no desire, the soul comes to power and mind no longer exists, the soul directs the movements of mind that lead it to consciousness and to the path of enlightenment. There is then, absolutely no need to deliberately stop the flow of thoughts, it will happen automatically when the need’s of body are met with simplicity and there is not even an inch of desire left to think or act upon.

 

Social Media Mania

Standard

 

Am amazed to see the new trends, the new shares, the new updates, the new buzz, the makeovers, the takeovers etc. all on the social websites , how they change every second.

This rapidly changing world, where loads of information is exploded each day upon the mankind is a thing to be concerned for, as there is so much to learn and grasp, am afraid i shall not be able  to take part in conversation where, people are talking about the latest trends and nonsense gossips going on Facebook or twitter or another social media.  There might be many people who do not have any social site accounts and still live great lives unaffected and unprovoked by such hysteria causing information.

And for those who are there might want to detach but there’s no cure for some habits and this is formed by regular feeds ,very regular id put.  And if taken away, there’s actually a craving that begins to get the latest news , we want to KNOW , and this need to know takes us to friends , peers, colleagues who may suffice our urge to know whats going around on the web . Its a fact its too late we could get rid of this habit. nowadays every age group is taking part in the updating session.

The Conception to death story is now being shared here and it creates a mix of emotions if you are on the receiving end for some it may go well but some may not like this sharing .

Why is it so important to share..

Because we have forgot to approve ourselves, we have stopped to like ourselves, we have forgot to love ourselves,we have given all these things to the society. This has given rise : to the hunger for approval by others. Hunger for Approval by others has given to the hunger for fame. Hunger for fame has given rise to Social Media Websites like Facebook, twitter and others. Your inability to love and approve yourself is being exploited and some people earn billions of Dollars of your weakness.

And because receiving more than 10 or 50 likes makes one feel like a superstar in his her own community then why not. Once these liking becomes a habit there more craving for doing something new to grab the attention and approval from others. people go by what others have to say no longer we use our own mind to solve our own simple day to day life problems because we can just put it there on the update and get so much of attention along with the advice.

These factors are harnessed by people who know what the weak spots are in the domains of our emotional realms , hence it is subjected to use and exploitation hence , we must acknowledge that using the social media is good for getting to know things but its not good if it become s part of our all the plans for life. It hinders progress and destroys peace and calm .

Rather than knowing the external world we should focus on the inner world and crave to know it, the path to know the inner world is through mediation which has endless benefits, once we are aware of our inner world we would no longer feel the need to Know about the outer world and even if we continue knowing it, it would hardly affect us .
