Goodbye 2013, Welcome 2014 !!


Let us bury the old and and give birth to something new - new hopes, new aspirations, new ideas, new values and new resolutions. The old goes and the new comes in. The snake slips out of the old skin and comes out with a new skin. It feels fresh and new. It is a process of rejuvenation and a rekindling of new energies and new life. Just see, the goose has come out of the bottle. It has always been out and it has never been in. This is what is called “thinking out of the box”

There are three kinds of forces that are acting on our lives. And these three forces are: Pull, Push, and Stretch. The pull and push forces are from the outside. They are acting on us from the outside. These are coming from the society, parents, teachers, etc. The stretch force is individual. It is arising from within. It is not from outside. It is not an external force. It is an internal force. It helps us to make new resolutions and act on those resolutions. It helps us to create new milestones and move ahead of the old ones. The old year stands for “old milestones” and the new year stands for creating “new milestones”. 

The new year 2014 is also important because it is an election year. A new leadership and a new government is going to come into power. Please remember that all power is for a prayer. All desire is to move towards divinity. And all energy is to move towards Enlightenment. Therefore, all political power is to create an ecosystem that aims at a holistic growth. All political power is just to serve the people with better governance. The new year 2014 is, therefore, a turning point in the political system of the country. It has to be the government of the common people. 

Let us look into the numerology of the new year 2014. When we sum all these numbers the number that comes out is number seven (2+0+1+4=7). The number seven is a very important number. It is a number of change and transformation. There are seven days in a week. There are seven colours in a rainbow. There are seven energy centers (Chakras) that continuously change and transform our being. In Chinese culture the number seven is a combination of Yin and Yang, and represents harmony. In the Vedas and Upanishads there are seven sages (Saptarishis) who are the agents of change and transformation. The new year 2014 is, therefore, a year of change and transformation. Let us make new resolutions and make them happen.

Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.
There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.
Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The though…

Jai Jai Ganesha !!

Ganesha does not mean only the wall portrait of Ganesha. Ganesha does not mean only the idol of Ganesha. But Ganesha means much more and beyond. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the wall portraits of Shiva and Parvati. Shiva and Parvati do not mean only the idols of Shiva and Parvati. They mean much more and beyond. There has to be a far deeper meaning to these mythological stories. Let us explore and uncover the myth hidden in these stories.
There are four dimensions to the existence. The first two dimensions are existence and non-existence. Matter is existing and non-matter is non-existing. We can perceive matter but we can not perceive the non-matter. We can perceive the body but we can not perceive the soul. The first two dimensions of the perceivable matter are Physics and Metaphysics. We can see the physical matter but we can not see the metaphysical matter. We can touch and feel the physical matter. But we can not perceive the subatomic and metaphysical world of matter exactl…

Happy Guru Nanak Jayanti !!

Today is the day of the “Guru”. Guru Nanak Dev was the founder of the Sikh faith. There is a legend behind his becoming a great Guru. He was once working for a merchant. And while counting numbers he made a small mistake. I strongly feel that such mistake should happen in everybody’s life. He was counting numbers. He was supposed to count up to twelve (12) and by mistake he counted up to thirteen (13). The moment he counted this number thirteen there was a sudden flash of a thunder in his whole being. It was a miraculous moment of his life. In fact divinity descended in him in that very moment. And at the same time, in that very moment, he ascended to divinity. In that very moment everything in his life has changed forever. 
In the Eastern tradition the word “Tera” means the “Supreme”. It simply means “Yours” and not “Mine”. The word “Tera” means everything is yours (that of God) and nothing is mine. Now, the world of me and mine has come to an end for the first time. Unless ‘my’ worl…
