The history of mankind from the prehistoric days to the present day modern society signifies a singular truth that is Survival Instinct.

The prehistoric man in difficult whether and environmental conditions has learnt to fight adapt to the nature.

As the evolution grew, the faculties for intellectual, emotional, professional and social grew as per the situations around.

The intellectual growth has given birth to many tools of gradual evolution that helped man in his dominance over the less intelligent peers.

When he adapted to the nature and started dominating the animal world, then started the confrontation with own species through the confrontation of different levels of emotions arising out of improved physiological reactions.

The domination among one individual over other is primarily on the supremacy of thought process which is haunting even today with varied religious and philosophical leadership.

The intellectual and emotional maturities coupled with physical instincts of the animal nature have continued to grow in community and social phenomena.

When understanding the ultimate purpose of human life the thought has grown beyond emotions and social instincts and promulgated the greater theories for life including spirituality.

The very different in thought process of religions stem from the differing existence levels and thinking patterns of humans surviving in various strata of intellectual, emotional and social life.

Now it is the time in the history of human being to understand a common underlying principle of the human thought on its survival and extinction in the context of the larger panorama of Universe.

The Matter, the Energy, the Mind and the God:

The quantum of the matter and the energy inside the matter is constant whether compressed as dense ball at the beginning of the Universe or in its expanding.

It is true that the basic truth in the Universe is same since its beginning and it never changes.

What changed is the evolution of consciousness through the complex patterns of matter and functional complexities of energy.

The level of consciousness depends on the collective expression of complex functions of the Mind.

The perceptual ability of the individual living consciousness emerges out of the varied existence levels.

The existence levels define the evolution of being from thinking mind to creative, organization mind and further obliterating its own existence to create a new form.

The singular entity crossing all the perceptions always tries to understand, reach its absolute source.

The Consciousness across the space and time is one single and ultimate entity that never changes. This you may call it as GOD.

The individual consciousness once reaching the source, tries relentlessly to extend, expand the existence of available source.

The path is getting absolute consciousness is revealed from thousands of years through several elevated individuals in the human form.

The diversity of perception and thought is due to the lower levels of existence and the increased bondage of the mind to the matter and body.

Every individual human needs to awaken their mind and live in it instead of living and directed by the body.

Why belief is powerful

We see the belief systems are running through the ages. All the logic an science consistently not successful in eradicating even a false belief.

What is the reason the belief has become so strong through generations in all religions.

Why the people are comfortable in believing an external force beyond their imagination.

Because, it is the easiest way to do it. In believing the individual is comfortable in  leaving his future in the hands of unknown.

People are resistant to change and evolution and always enjoyed the status quo in the life.

They feel ease in following which is already followed and does not want to strain their body and mind for new discoveries and dimensions of life.

Wherefrom the belief arise?

They arise from the deep psychic realities through constant environmental reinforcements.

Is there any advantage of the belief?

There is a strong advantage in the belief systems and hence they are surviving.

Every individual in one instance or the other must have experienced a unique incident in life which turns into a belief.

The belief if strong turns the vision into a reality as it is seated in the core of our mind and vibrates the complete being to realize the belief into a reality.

Greed and Selfishness – How to reduce it?

Greed

Greed of matter or money is ruling the world through corruption and looting.

It is becoming the cause of increasing gap between the rich and the poor among the societies and the countries.

Increased selfishness among the world is making the individual more shrinking in his self and thus getting disconnected from the world around.

The expansion of the self against the matter is of paramount importance to reduce the incidence of hatred among different groups in society.

If neglected, the social conflict will increase to the level of total confrontation.

The greed with its deeper connections with all the negative tendencies of the human being will destroy the positive fibre among the social groups.

The change in the human character can be brought about only by the religious teachings.

Unfortunately, the religion since the ages has become the basis of confrontation because of the varying existing levels of human mind and their concepts.

Instead of looking at the negative side of the other religion people should learn the positive things that are common in every religion.

In the mean time, the evolution of science since its beginning is trying to uproot the thoughts of religion.

The science should try to give the logical explanation for the religious thoughts wherever the facts coincide with the hypothesis.

With all the efforts of the great philosophers of the ages and the geographical locations around the world, the greed of the individual and subsequently the division among the human communities continued.

Every sage or saint in the human history has made an effort to make the individual a positive character through their teachings.

Every religion in the effort of transforming the individual has created dogmatic belief systems which are insignificant in religion and turned very detrimental to the social harmony.

The time for the human being has come to discern the best practices of the philosophy that are ultimate for the evolution and eternity instead of material comforts.

The mind is the cause of creation and destruction as well. It is the mind that needs to be refined by understanding its own functioning.

The free will residing at the center of the mind should be awakened to dominate the physical matter including the body.

The nearer one reaches the center of the mind the better the one recognizes its power and comfort of Inner Being and enjoys the bliss of tranquility with power of command.

The power of Mind over matter can go a long way in decreasing the greed of the individual self  thus enhancing the harmony among human society. The human when idenitifed expands in the direction of welfare of the humanity and as a networked individual.

Science and Spirituality

The history of human thought has seen a long battle between religion and science through their beliefs and facts.

There has been never an effort is made to see the view point of other to understand the similarities and contradictions.

In a way the science has turned too dogmatic in their own predictions and belief systems.

Science through its discovery of the underlying principles, laws of phenomena can as well could have modified the philosophical thought at every phase of human history and dispel the blind belief systems existing at each moment.

But instead it always tried to run a parallel and antognostic system that corroborates the belief of mass population.

The belief and the facts are so innate in nature of the human being and could easily be balanced.

Belief is something people feel and depend heavily on their daily activities without any rationale behind it. Because, it is to be in that way. The fact is something which seeks thinking and logical action for use.

The thinking mind of living being always was insecure in various confronting situation of survival. This led to the belief of a Being above the normal capabilities to support in terms of crisis.

The evolutionary gap between various levels of human existence has become the foundation for confrontation in their belief systems. This has become the base for variation in the religious theories and teaching.

The ritualistic practice of the religion for thousands of years has led to the stagnation of human mind losing its reason into the effortless habit of continuance of existence.

Let us understand the relationship of the science and philosophy in understanding the God.

Science, with all its discovery explain that the nature or the universe has created itself and sustaining with the laws made by itself. On the contrary, the religious philosophy speaks of a Super Being in the Universe who is the cause and effect in the Universe.

Though both the above arguments seem contradictory, is there any difference in their concepts if you look at other angle. Why can’t we call the nature or the Universe sustaining with its own laws as the God?

The human mind has evolved out of millions of years of evolution of living being to become an architect of the world what we are seeing.

Similar way, the billions of years of the existence of this Universe could have created a cumulative Super Intelligence that is maintaining every law in the Universe and this we may call as the God.

As there is no scientific explanation for many of the phenomena in the nature, it is better to take the shelter of the philosophy till the old hypothesis is replaced with reasonable and factual explanation.

The science can make an effort to support or disprove the religious belief systems and build a rational around the human thinking instead of always confronting with it.

From unknown to known being

In the beginning of the formation of living from the non-living, it happened that the energy which is static energy into the dynamic and subsequently the primordial living being.

It all happened with the complex bonding of the essential elements required for the evolution of a living being.

The single cell living being thus formed with the favor of the nature supporting it has metamorphosed into a complex multicellular being and further into a thinking human being.

The mind evolved in the evolution of being such that it can handle the complex organism in its varying degree of physical, physiological, social functions.

The mind further has created a framework of spiritual reality to live beyond the perceptive reality.

The energy that could not think, will and act to reach the chosen destiny has evolved into the sophisticated mind.

Every living activity hitherto unknown to the core of the energy in the living being has become known through the evolution of mind.

The Mind which is searching a reality beyond the physical entities of space and time or spacetime is trying to evolve a framework to fit the happenings on the earth, space and the universe.

The Mind which is the controlling center of the human being is now thinking beyond the control of its own existence and moving ahead into the social awareness and the awareness that corresponds to the nature and its elements.

The Mind is trying to grab the knowledge and experience of the world, nature, space, cosmic bodies like planets, solar system, galaxies and the multiverses.

The Mind turned externally could get all the support from the nature if subordinated to it. The Mind that turned internally to reach the point of its existence could connect to the Unified Being at the similar existence level and network with the energy and matter around it.

The Mind thus evolved into a free will has the capacity to choose its own destiny to exist or perish the matter around it at its own will.

Thus evolution of matter what we think is only the increasing complexity of nature and engulfing the human into the unknown slavery of destruction.

If the human being to survive on the matter, it is not necessary but mandatory to turn inwards and reach the inner source or Being or existence and be with it always.

At this spot nothing influences the Mind and it can influence everything around through physical and spiritual planes.

The gate of birth and death: Can we control the death?

birth_death

It is an established fact that the mind is the supreme entity in the body which controls everything including physical, psychological and physiological activities. It is known that the mind controls all the voluntary activities externally and we are able to move the external body parts at our will. It is little known and even if it is known, the human mind is not aware of its capacity to even control the internal parts of the body which are involuntary in their operation. They are involuntary because they are programmed by the Mind to do the task. If the body follows the mind for its upkeep most of the diseases would not be of any significance as they can be warded off much before the onslaught.

When we keep thinking of the origins of feelings and thought it leads definitively to some unknown location in the Mind. The ancient Hindu Rishis and Saints have clearly identified the pathway of stimulus response in the body and expressed through a system of symbolic figures of 7 Chakras. They are Muladhara at the base of the Spinal Chord and others like Swadhistana at the point of reproductive organs, Manipura at the stomach, Anahata located parallel to the heart, Vishuddhi located in the area of throat, Agna at the forehead and Sahasrara at the top of the Spinal Chord. These are the Spinal Ganglion with varied neural extensions to the body parts at the respective places and arousing various instincts, emotions, feelings and thoughts.

If we take the discussion further into the beginning of life we can understand that it is the Mind which started its operations for the physical organism. The beginning as we see will be the all encompassing Sahasrara with many neural ramifications. It is the place at the topmost point in the Spinal Chord. At the point of death it is the area through which the life tries to leave the body or there could be a possibility of ceasing itself at the brain.

The difference between various levels of existence and awareness in living and human beings, the life ceases at various points in the spinal chord which takes the form of material, physical, psychological or Spiritual nature at the end of the life. There is a story in Vishnu Purana of Hindu mythology saying that few of the persons are chosen to continue the life at the end of the world and will begin the life when the delusion settles. That may be a symbolic statement for the spiritual progress of the people. But the actual fact is the living being or human at the time of death can choose to be at which level they want to end the life. This depends on the Physical, mental and spiritual practices prescribed by ancient Hindu Saints through their experiences.

Every individual at the beginning of his awareness should start and continue the spiritual evolution as the death is inevitable end that everyone has to face. It needs a preparation to face the same. The preparation of awareness starts from the base of the spinal chord and when it reached the top one reaches the gate between birth and death. At this point the life and death is at the will of the living being. It is the will of the individual being whether to be with the core mass of the universe or merge with the inanimate, physical realms.

Mind Expedition to Mount Kailas

     MaduraiTempleLordShiva

 

Hindu and Buddhist believers believe in the expedition to ManasSarovar as the ultimate goal of philosophical journey.

It is believed that they can see the Mount Kailas, the abode of Shiva for purification of the body and soul.

It is undoubtedly one of the finest travels of lifetime to reach the Mount Kailas and have a dip in Manassarovar lake where Shiva and Parvathi is believed to be alive and meditating even today.

People also visit Saptarshi Cave where the Seven Rishis also took to penance in the nearby area with the guidance of Shiva and Parvathi.

These all seem to be practically possible as the Himalayan Mountains always supported the penance because of their vast ranges and heights.

It is a common experience of deeper meditation levels for every spiritual individual who visits a temple in the mountain top or roams in the mountain ranges.

Every such individual reaches the pinnacle of Mind leaving fewer stimuli to the body feelings or attachments.

The single mountain or small mountain ranges have a limited meditative experience compared to the vast Himalayan ranges as the Being constantly lives in the mInd when he traverses the ranges.

Furthermore, the Himalayan ranges and Mount Kailas give an isolated experience with the sense of detachment.

Probably, this is the reason every Hindu Saint or Sage or Buddhist Monks have attracted towards Himalayas for their penance.

The concentration and living in the mind improves manifold in the mountain ranges.

The inner meaning of all this is the Mind Expedition. One needs to travel through the bottom of the Spinal Cord (the lower end) to the top (the upper end).

In Tantric Parlance, it is called Shatchakra Sadhana travelling from the animal instincts at the base, through the human passion and the divine intuition at the top of the Mind.

Once reaching at the top, the state should be maintained as long as one continues in the physical body.

The purpose of travelling to Mount Kailash is not to see the scenic beauty or feel a bit of Spiritual Experience.

But the purpose is to attain a permanent state of Mind Evolution to its peak and live forever in that state.

Mind Body Continuum

People in philosophy always believed that Mind is separate from body.

But it is the mind which penetrated through the body and expressing itself.

The only problem is the mind has lost in stimulus of the body than voluntary response.

Mind started responding involuntarily to most of the body stimulus and lost its very independent existence.

Body has no independent existence of itself but Mind has.

Regain the lost control of mind.

Live through the mind and in the mind.

This way one can control the life through body, surroundings and even death.

This is the primary objective of all the spiritual principles of all religions.

Reincarnation: A belief or a Reality:

reincarnationtaoism

The similar life experiences are felt by many of the people in different dimensions and levels.

The Reincarnation of a particular soul in a particular form is not a possibility.

The indestructible quantum of energy in the Universe is single whole with varying levels of existence and states.

These cycles through the inanimate to the animate and through the matter to the mind.

The less active energy is resided in matter again depending on its solid, liquid and gaseous forms.

The dynamic energy gets into force and transforms into life forms.

The life forms evolve into more dynamic and aware beings to propel the alertness and organization of itself.

All the dynamic energy in the life forms settles at varying levels of energy pools depending on the evolutionary levels.

It is possible that a part of the energy with the same level of existence in the pool may commit to the birth which reflects the similarities of feeling of rebirth.

The life with animal instincts to divine intuition is a continuous cycle from the beginning of the life.

The recycling is not the same soul but rather a part of the similar level of existence.

Again it needs a strong will and persistence for particular traits to take birth.

Hence it is not the individual who is taking the birth. But the continuous flow of energy from animates to inanimate and vice versa is happening in cycles.

Read the belief of Taoism:

Taoist documents from as early as the Han Dynasty claimed that Lao Tzu appeared on earth as different persons in different times beginning in the legendary era of Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors. The (ca. 3rd century BCE) Chuang Tzu states: “Birth is not a beginning; death is not an end. There is existence without limitation; there is continuity without a starting-point. Existence without limitation is Space. Continuity without a starting point is Time. There is birth, there is death, there is issuing forth, there is entering in.”
