Transcendence…

meditation-600x600

Afraid!
So afraid!
What are we so afraid about?

Scared!
So scared!
What are we so scared about?

Dare!
Dare not?
Why not dare to live our way?

Conform!
Conform ever?
Why conform to beliefs we don’t subscribe to?

Frog
And the well.
The story repeated ever and ever!

Jack
In the box.
Why not jump out of it for a sec?

Swim?
Swim against!
Upstream is the way to evolution.

Stand?
Stand alone!
Make your point loud and clear.

Fight!
Against the tide!
Lest we be washed up the shore like weed.

Struggle?
Struggle always!
Don’t become complacent and die!

Time!
Time flies.
Win this race against all costs.

End?
Beautiful end!
Keep the means true and pure.

Transcendence?
Radiant transcendence!
From ordinary life to a higher power.

Temptations…

images (69)

It’s only when the object of temptation is removed from the immediate vicinity of a person for an extended period of time that one can think clearly, rationally. It’s a rare type of people who can think rationally even in sight of their temptations. That takes special practice and extraordinary self-control.

In view of our temptations, all of us regress to the animalistic nature from which we evolved and that is still such an inherent part of our make-up. That does bring up the question if we are all done evolving or can we expect a better, more advanced version of ourselves in the future? Then I wonder what would be the future of those of us who are not able to upgrade themselves to the new and advanced version of humanity?

So…coming back… what I have found to be particularly useful is – get yourself away from your temptations, go back to your more rational self and then take any life-altering decisions. As an added precaution, sit on the decision for a couple of days and even after that if you think the decision is right, then go ahead and execute it! That way you will have a higher probability of success than failure in your decisions and lesser regret to live with in case of a failure. That way you will have the control of your baser nature; not the other way round…:-)
