Beauty

Remember that the most beautiful things in the world are the most useless. – John Ruskin

I agree as well as disagree with this outspokenly honest statement. I agree that the most beautiful things are always inspired creations. Those who create such beautiful pieces of art or fine art or literature or any other performing or nonperforming arts create just for the sake of creation, for the sake of expression. They create for the joy of creation. They create because the inspiration is so strong that they cannot not create.

It is pure. It is blissful. It is divine. It is not banausic. They have no other motive to create it. And the creation may or may not be of any material use for anyone. Agreed.

But, material life is a very small fraction of our existence. The nonmaterial, nonphysical domain is too vast and unfathomable. In fact, it is beyond the capacity of words. And if we look from the perspective of this aspect of the existence, the most beautiful creations are the most useful things.

They lift our spirits. They nurture our souls. They bring us in the ever-moment. We become speechless. We lose the sense of time and space.

These are the windows through which we can have a glimpse of the nonlocal domain of existence. The experience lingers forever. We crave for it again and again. Because it is the knowing of the Universal Oneness which is beyond any definition.

What greater utility can anything have? So pay attention to art. Appreciate art. Make it a part of your life.

“Art begs you to notice it. Why? Because art is God’s way of saying hello!” – Neale Donald Walsch.

Love Freedom Soul God

Love. Freedom. Soul. God. All these words are interchangeable. All carry aspects of the other. All are the other. – Neale Donald Walsch

Profound!
These are not just interchangeable words. These are interchangeable phenomena. All are supreme. All are highly empowering. All are highest energy forms or frequencies.

Love and Freedom always coexist. Our Souls are free as well. God is both love and freedom. And every Soul is the individuation of the Divine.

By personal experience, I will add Bliss. It is the union of peace and joy. It is the power of the present.

Choose any one to focus on, to affirm, to act upon, or to demonstrate. The results would be identical. Yes, we have the choice. God has given us free will.

Live like God

Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see it. – Carl Jung

It’s all about how we think and what we believe. If we believe that there is a Supreme Intelligence (howsoever you may name it.. God, Nature, Universe), and if we believe that the Supreme Intelligence has infinite organizing power and if we believe that the Supreme Intelligence can orchestrate anything and everything to fulfill our integral intentions, then we can really, relax, watch and enjoy the process of life. We can then participate in the play and live our roles without attachment. That would be a state of bliss. We will enjoy everything but require nothing. Hey, that’s how God is!

Surrender

Once you surrender to your vision, success begins to chase you. – Robin Sharma

Profound! Isn’t it? Most of us are conditioned to do exactly the opposite. We are trained to chase success and surrender our vision for attaining the illusion of success.

This makes us hollow. We feel the vacuum. We miss the sense of satisfaction. We lose opportunities to create and keep groping for meaning.

If you have a vision, it’s the most priceless endowment, a peerless blessing. Appreciate its value and the value of your life will appreciate in geometrical proportions.

We are not born to control. We are born to surrender to our visions, our dreams… Life wants to create through us. Each and everything in nature except humans knows this. We mistakenly believe that we have a duty, a responsibility to do a lot of things for our growth and prosperity. We think that we must struggle for survival.

We are supposed simply to allow miracles to manifest through us…to experience the incredible…the mesmerizing and immerse in exuberance.

We all have visions. But, we turn their volume so low that we cannot even hear them now. Decrease the volume of the conditioned mind and fine tune with intuition…inspiration and surrender to Life to live in the true sense. God has been telling this to us since ages. It’s time to listen.

Perception of Wonder

The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction. – Rachel Carson

There is so much to see, hear, smell, sense in the Universe that one lifetime is not enough. There is so much to appreciate, enjoy and wonder about! I am not talking about the seven wonders. I am talking about adopting the perception of wonder.

As Ray Bradbury says: We are an impossibility in an impossible universe. Our birth and entire existence seems so wonderful! We cannot sit and create a human with tools and equipments. It SEEMS impossible. But, we all witness its possibility.

And the more we will learn to observe and see wonders in the Universe, the more we will have faith in the possibility of everything which we presumed to be impossible, including World Peace.

As a matter of fact, World Peace is not something we have to bring about or create. We just need to stop disturbing it with destructive thoughts and actions. And the solution is simple: Shifting the focus from anything else and keeping​ it on the wonders and beauty and inexhaustible variety of existence. It’s the same as appreciating God.

Let God

When a man forgets himself, he usually does something everybody else remembers. – James Coco – 1930-1987, Actor
This is so striking! Each and every thing we consider worth remembering had bloomed from the moment of merger….merger of the doer, the thing done and the source of inspiration. There was no separation. In fact, the doer was not really doing but simply allowing.

There was no concern for the outcome. There was no thought about the reward. The engrossing was so rewarding, so fulfilling, that the end result did not attract any focus. The end result was awe-inspiring for those who saw it. The end result contributed in the history of civilisation.

Love and passion allow us to merge with the doing. The ‘I’ disappears and the creation takes a magnificent form. Remember to forget yourself more often. Let Go and Let God.

Nothing remains to be done…

When love is there, nothing remains to be done. – Vimala Thakar

We do a lot of things and say that “I am doing this out of love….for love… because of love…and so on..” Where do we intend to go..what do we wish to achieve by doing?

The goal we truly desire to achieve is Love. The feeling we want to experience is Love. The place where we all deeply yearn to go is Love. But, even after finding Love we do not stop and stay there.

There is nothing wrong in doing. It is the passion of doing that takes us astray. Our doing should be an expression of the Love that we have found…whether we find it in a person or a purpose or vision.

And then there is no struggle. It is just an experience being re-created with every action we take. Nothing is needed to ‘be done’ for Love. Our ‘being’ in Love is enough.

When Love is there, God is realized.
