Are We Really Helpless

Standard

You must have come across or encounter events which may cause an upsurge of heavy emotions within. Often i see and hear in the media about certain tragic and painful scenes where there wasn’t a single moment of humanity captured. newspapers, internet, news, etc are filled with such events that are cause for concern where the world is grossly wrong and no one is spared of brutality and pain .

Few months back I saw Wiki leaks Secrets and Lies documentary on History channel, it ensemble’s almost everything that concerns the whole world. Such up scale, top secret and most anonymous details of war and global agenda’s put out at public disposal is something to cherish and fear about at the same time.

Of all what wiki leaks does and shows the world, opens up secret files where the cruelties meted by the one’s in possession of power and dominance upon the ones who lack it . There has been a tremendous recovery among the first world countries to reach for peace and power but all in terms of their own strategy’s and systems, where it overlooks the life of common people being crushed in the third world countries.

 Am concerned and immensely concerned over such massive and gigantic problems and issues that face this world, where every system is the work of the people in power positions and every action stems from the mind of the top bureaucracy. The war in these third world counties have had the most brutal attacks and killings done by the armies, where an order to the army to kill the enemy is one thing that follows the system of such wars, but an order to the army to kill the enemy among innocent civilians is another thing, where it always overlooks the people over the trigger.

 Among the Killings even the civilians are not spared , they have to wash hands off their life without any reason, just because they were present at that time and became part of that war uncalled and untold, its all in the Video that wiki leaks have exposed so far. Its not terrorists we are talking about but the armies who can control all the other variables in their experimental missions. Among all the killings of people as adults is painful to see, but what really pains and sinks my heart is to see the children, small and completely innocent being hit by big bullets and bombs.

 What sin did they do ? How were they involved ? Did anyone had no mercy before killing them ?

All these questions surround me time and again when i witness such events, ranging from ,the fetus abortions and killing ,or  be it the roman times killing of royal lineage children almost mercilessly, or the little girls and boys tortured and abused painfully. some of the incidents like these are plenty in number and range from almost every kind of physical or mental pain afflicted upon an innocent child.

 A child who is helpless, innocent, unaware and mean no harm to anyone can not even retaliate if someone causes harm to them. Isn’t this the responsibility of  the adults who run this world from beginning to the end to create a safe haven for these little ones to bloom and foster. well things cannot change but surely CAN is what i believe and hope for.

And I dont know whether to lament over all this or not as am not Helping it to change anyhow even writing this blog or post. I can rarely help these kids, and these issues are at such big levels and spread out in almost every corner of this world its impossible to reach there to help or intervene in such matters.

To feel helpless about not being able to do anything and moreover to feel sad for the innocents being victimized and their helplessness to overcome, traumatizes me a lot. The major portions in my thoughts is, these kids be it from anyone from anywhere, to help them to reach them and to provide safety for them is what i insist to do for the kids who are at least in my reach.

 Since time immemorial, children had been ruthlessly killed for they are visioned as successors and future enemies that need to be annihilated before they could rise to power.

 Actually Its Not about Power Its about FEAR , the fear of existence, and doom . The fear to save one life by killing thousands .And because today Humanity is just left for namesake so these, fear reins the heart of every grown up who wants to create a space for himself or herself to thrive. In the process to thrive and create their own niche,they overlook humanity, which is the greatest concern of all today.

Krishna : Man for Every Yuga

Standard

Krishna and Radha with gopiyas.

 

I was reading this book by Osho, that my fiance mailed me to read, where he talks about the significance teaching and philosophy given by Krishna.

So far i have read only 8 pages and am thankful to him for the great book.

Osho is a magnanimous being , he cannot be touched , talked or thought about casually just like Buddha, Krishna and Shiva for his knowledge and enlightened ness.  He speaks about Krishna is a man meant to be understood and his philosophies and lessons should be understood and applied by all. But its unfortunate on our part that we can never understand and realize that Krishna is man for all seasons and yuga’s , and we till today haven not been able to understand the true meaning and essence of his teaching in the Geeta and Bhagwad.

Osho has been true in saying that we only differentiate and adapt to him at our own level where Krishna in Bhagwad is dancing and singing whereas Krishna in Geeta is talking about Dharma, Karma and significance of war. If we believe in good ness and gaiety in life we will bound to agree with the Krishna in Bhagwad and understand him at our own level again overlooking his totality where he dances and sing s with women and conveys that Body and soul is one and sex can only lead to celibacy not the suppression of any feelings of the soul or body.

on the other hand In geeta he aptly conveys how the war of Mahabharata , and restoration of dharma is the karma and must be followed as it is. He talks about violence and non violence as two sides of the same coin and that thinking about violence is when someone thinks he can kill its materialistic, and the one who thinks he will practice non violence and would not kill anyone is also a materialist . And one thing is common among the violence and non violence believers that “someone can be killed” therefore Krishna rejects both and accepts the immortality of the soul where life and death is materialistic and nothing lives or dies.

This thought above is very spiritual but an eye opener to believe in Krishna and the lesson he wishes to give  us , though we are least ready to understand or accept, forget adopting to it. Spirituality accepts wholeness of life it accepts everything be it love, sex, war , devotion or any other thing.

It is relevant because this age is age of lies, suppression, competition, repression, struggle and suffering and a never ending fight , which is why today the study of Krishna’s teachings become more important as he shows us the way to play our part in this life leela (play )where its only a role we must understand and that we must overcome and stand above this role to conquer these inimical forces that influence us.

The best part osho explains about Krishna is the topic that we are deprived, devoid, suppressed, and asked to repress all out lives which is sex. He has rightly explored the theme and made it understandable for us to know that we must be familiar and make friends with sex not look at it as our enemy, the logic behind this is that we cannot understand our enemies but we can understand our friends very well and have scope to change them, this is true and can be explored further because many of us suppress our urges and carnal instincts, the more we put them back the more we think about them. the more we think the more we are distracted , and again its a wide spread theme to think of it a sin and thus thought in the same way since we were adolescents .

Krishna is the only one who has believed and accepted life in its totality , he never became a saint, lived in celibacy , he was god in true sense , a complete whole, a complete taker of life as it is. he never turned away from the miseries or suffering wars or violence good or evil , he took it as it was and gave the most unimaginable ways to conquer over them and live through them .

And as we are..

we are born to be attracted by the things which are meant not to be disclosed , the opposite always attracts, but we fear so much about the other side that we always wish to cling to all the good things and do away with the bad , dark, evil, pain, etc. But we fail to realize that even this is part of our existence and we need to look into it deeply, and when we come across or face them we feel dilemma, pain, conflict and misery because we are not ready to give up on the pleasantness and goodness of life.

This is what Krishna wants us to do, to believe in whole life to accept the opposites and lead a true life not in fragments or portions where we accept one thing and deny the other rather we must learn to accept the other part as well.

Krishna has a remarkable brilliance and great relevance for every generation of any yuga. we must explore him greatly through his teachings and decipher the inner meaning rather than the outer words only through Bhaghwad or the geeta.
