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 thoughts are moving in the mind. And these emotions and thoughts manifest through the body as actions. The emotions in the heart trigger as thoughts in the mind, and the same thoughts manifest through the body as actions. One can slap somebody with the hand or one can shake somebody’s hand with the same hand. It all depends on us as to how we use our thought energy.

A thought is an object. It is an energy. And this object creates its own world. It creates its own space and time. It creates its own world of thoughts and emotions. It creates a world of the mind. And this mind can be transformed into a creative mind. A moving thought is a space. A moving thought is time. A mind, therefore, is a space-time object. The mind is a space of moving thoughts. A moving mind creates an illusion of time.

The whole structure of an individual being is like that of an atom. The atom consist of electrons, protons, and neutrons. The electrons are negatively charged particles and are moving in the outermost orbit of the atom. This is the periphery of the atom. The protons are positively charged particles. And the neutrons are neutrally charged particles. The protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom called the nucleus. As we move from the periphery to the center of the atom, the power increases. The center of the atom is the most powerful place in the atom. The protons are more powerful than the electrons. And the neutrons are more powerful than the protons and electrons. The center of the atom, called the nucleus, is the most powerful place in the atom. According to science, the electrons, protons, and neutrons are not three different things. They are three different manifestations of the same energy.

The thoughts are like particles. These are moving in the mind at different energy levels. They have their own properties - position, speed, energy, etc. The thoughts are moving in the space of the mind. And these thoughts create their own world of the mind. And these thoughts - past, present, and future, create the mind. The past, present, and future are the three dimensions of the thought object. And the space and time is the fourth dimension. The past time is our memory. The present time is the time that we are living now at this very moment. And the future time is our imagination. And the sum of all this is nothing but our mind. Our mind is nothing but a four dimensional subjective world. If the past is responsible for the present, then with the same analogy the present will also be responsible for the future. Therefore, the whole objective is to create a world of positive actions and creative actions.

The outer layer of our being is the layer of negative, positive, and neutral thoughts. This is the periphery of our being. This is the mind of our being. The quality of the thoughts determine the quality of the mind. This is an intellectual layer. This is a layer of intellectual energy. This layer determines our Intellectual Quotient (IQ). A layer below this is a layer of negative, positive, and neutral emotions. This layer is below the intellectual layer. This is an emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This is a layer of emotional energy. The emotional energy is more subtler than the intellectual energy. The quality of the emotions determine the quality of the heart. There is a layer further deeper. This layer is that of silence. This is more like a field. The thoughts and emotions are like particles. The thoughts and emotions are continuously interacting with this field of silence. And in a silent state of the mind we can experience the soul. The silent state is neither positive nor negative. It is a neutral state. It transcends the negative state and the positive state. The silent state helps us to know the utility and futility of both the states, that is, the positive state and the negative state. As we move deeper in our being the power increases. The positive thoughts are more powerful than the negative thoughts. The neutral thoughts are more powerful than the positive and negative thoughts. The Atma or soul is the center of our being. It is the most powerful place in our being. It is a center of infinite empathy. It is a center of infinite love and bliss. This is our happiness quotient. And this state determines our Spiritual Quotient (SQ).

The Spiritual Quotient (SQ) is the sum of our Intellectual Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ). And mathematically, 

Spiritual Quotient (SQ) = Intellectual Quotient (IQ) + Emotional Quotient (EQ).

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…
