This is a self-reflection from Jan 17th, 2010 – yet another blast from the past! Read, reflect upon, and share your thoughts for us to learn and grow together!
“Let me demand more from myself than anybody could ever elicit from me“, what a phenomenal auto suggestion. Definitely, the year has just blossomed viz., the New Year? To whom? What’s new in it? Only 12 months and in each day only 24 hours; of course, the name may be different! But then what’s in a name? We give a standing ovation to the New Year with resolutions galore. Let us not (sorry let me not) desire and aspire for others’s more Supply and let us Demand more from us than what others could expect. Yes, self persuasion is in deed moral suasion. It’s more natural and ethical too. Everything can be optimized if we learn the art and science of the Within Optimum Energy (WoE). Wonderful WoE! Am I to believe this? If child is a father of man, then I have to.
Let me assert that children exhibit not only the inner divinity but indicate the potentials inherent in their recesses of activities. Even though the word “Balah” mean those who do not know; it only signifies the inner meanings of what they say. It reflects that children normally repeat what others say. But then we can’t be repeating in the form of resolutions each and every oncoming year what we have been repeating in the forgone years. Ultimately, we have to realize the significance of responsiveness rather than reactions. We clamor more for reactions in life rather than responsible responses. This psychological aspect reveals our self projection and self defeatist techniques of behavior which are rather cumbersome. Practically speaking, we have to have a Memorandum Of Understanding (MoU) with ourselves with a strict self discipline which alone teaches us not only the meaning of our thinking, but the effectiveness of our thought once executed in a pinpointed direction.
Let us enjoy the fruits of WoE and MoU by adhering to the dictates of the unique propelling aura of conscientious magnanimity by looking inwards rather outwards. Let us pursue our persuading true self (in each of us – which is the “second I”) which alone makes us to proceed farther towards real gains; the first I incidentally is the projected I, rather the boasting I resulting in competition and collision and not collusion.
Fine, let me compete with my real self. Both the WoE and the MoU augur well.
But then when? Only when perseverance precedes postponement. It’s a question of advancement versus postponement. Democratically, postponement wins; advancement loses the game of life! We have to win the game by being sportive – we have to be serious enough!
Let us discover the World of Achievement (which is within us) within the World of Ecstasy, the self transforming trance without traveling far and wide of the Cosmos. The Universe is expanding according to the wide awakening scientists par excellence. Kudos to the discovery; but then the Cosmos is for whom? Expansion in quantity sans quality! The wisdom of the seers we want not the wisdom of the mere knowledgeable. Again when are we to become PrahlAdas (child devotee – singular) to realize the power of God via the power of atom? Lord Narasimha sprang from the pillar to destroy Hiranyakashipu (the mercurial demon) but in modern age Hiranyakashipus are oozing out of the atomic power plants! Let there be humanism with divinity rather than devilishness with terrorism. The role of the Energy Within , WoE and MoU, with the self are to be tapped more and more as we proceed towards the solar, wind, wave energies which are the real infinite sources of natural energy. The activating energy which is the input for sustainable quality life through non conventional energy is the Energy Within – WoE; otherwise there is a real woe unto mankind like the eye of the cyclone, be it a Nisha or a Tsunami perpetrating woes galore.
Let not the “‘I’ness of mind” thwart myself but lead me to Light – the Highness. The eye of the cyclone too reflects the intensity of the problem at large; so too the behavioral pattern of majority of persons reveal to those who learnt the nuances of human psychology that these persons try to camouflage their real self through their projected self. The reality behind such a behavior really make them to succumb to their projections which are untrue and the second I is seldom understood; thus Ego outsmarting the most. For, these circumstances are the villains of peace but then if we are frank enough conscientiously to experience inwardly the reality aspect of Divinity.
It is we whose circumstances are creatures of persons and are not otherwise . The second I is second to none and hence it is the Divine “I”, without the paraphernalia of ego.
