Pit stop in the rat race

It's been two months since I quit my job. When I was quitting it looked like I was doing a big mistake.
             Now I am relaxed. I thoroughly enjoyed doing nothing spectacular. Travelling to temples, hill stations, spending time with family and so on.
      I did not discover my inner self or anything,  but realized that you can always take a break from the rat race and rejoin the race later with different rats!

Dejavu repeats

Week after week when I sit in the village railway station, dejavu repeats. Maybe after a few repetitions,  it should not be called dejavu!

Religion, Economics and Purpose of life

Purpose of our lives is to contribute positively to the global village that is moving towards progress. There are different set of rules people are using as guiding principles in this journey.

1. Rules of Religion which have been introduced to select few prophets/sons/avatars by god himself(or herself) over the course of mankind's history

2. Rules of free market economics that is derived from super specialization of labor. Humans specialize in producing one item/service and trade that to obtain currency which can be traded later to consume something else

3. Rules of administration: This overlaps between the first and the second set in many areas and also defines the framework for the first and second to operate

The second set of rules is very powerful.
However, amending the second set is very difficult and it is currently open to many convenient interpretations. Right now, a lot of chaos in the world is caused due to mis-interpretation of the second set of rules.

If youth today is searching for meaning of life there are two answers to it:
1. "There is no meaning. We are cockroaches. Exist. Eat, Drink, Live and Die"

2. There is meaning. Your purpose is to add positive value and goodness to the global village.
You may pursue any noble profession which does not harm people, make money and use this economic currency to drive other engines which in turn add value to the global good. (rather than locking money in lockers/real estate etc)
                       The path to achieving this purpose is through mindful living.Being aware of every vibe that your interaction with the outside world and your inner world is producing.

Our Deepest Fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others

Peace Dawns Upon Me

A great sense of peace dawns upon me...
One for forgiveness... For a better cause...

Form follows function
Words follow each other
Borders make a pattern
Pattern that represent
Beauty, Grace, Style
And Completeness

Independence Day Evening

The sun has set for today; the speeches have echoed in deaf ears
indifferent souls having tea in humid summer; 'maoists' shouting in the forests
and 'kashmiris' in the mountains; hunger in the streets and corruption in the corridors of power
statues and parks for bygone 'Netas'; grains rotting away in godowns for the emaciated souls
The non-inclusive forest-dwellers and the land where sun rises

Xenophobic population; identity defined by surnames and caste names,
Sticky brands followed through generations,
Divided by language; divided by birth; by the direction of worshiping god;
by the length of facial hair, color of skin, dialect of language;
Morals only for school kids, with the luxury of daily bread

The sun has set for today and will it rise tomorrow ?
There were people in the past who had souls
Today locked in photo frames and remembered during national holidays
The sun has set for today and will it rise tomorrow ?
