The human mind is a very complex organ so to speak of and it often is involved with many of the wonders that we see around us today. There have been very many spritual and philosophical seeks from time which dates back to the beginning of civilization itself. I often tend to wonder how did their thinking process would have guided them provided differential cirumstances existed during different eras in time. Though I can assure myself of one thing that has been common throught the ages - "Emotions and Power". It has been seen in every phase of human evolution. People have time and again tried to achieve power, superiority and perhaps knowledge, not necessarily the Truth but knowledge that they can and could use to futher their own existance and motives. Most of the times such quest for power and knowledge has resulted in a mis-balance of what I may call 'The Happiness Factor".
There have been many branches of knowledge from spritiual to scientific but each having its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Though it is hard to quatify knowledge in absolute terms of advantage or disadvantage. Yet, I believe that it is very possible to seek and know the Truth - Something which does not vary with time and place and is absolute in existance. Something which does not manifests in different forms and something that imparts the same knowledge to all without the scope of conflict or error in who soever precieves it and in whatever fashion.
Perhaps that has been one of my motives in opening this blog and to share thoughts and expriences and get feedback and similar experiences from people out there, helping me grow as an individual and also helping such a community dicover new possible outcomes of human thoughts. The most complex phenomena out there. Spritualists have termed this 'Truth Factor' as Enlightenment and as far as science goes, it is quite far away to even begin defining such concepts. I would try to keep my posts un-baised solely because I am a student of science yet I feel there is much more to the working of the world than pure science could explain. This is not to say that science should be discarded or that one should completely turn away and discard scientific principles. But this is only to say that we should collectively try to seek avenues and dimensions higher than that science can explain by using tools and/or developing tools that do not confine our thinking to a purely rational and scientific level.
I have along with studying engineering and pure sciences have been a student of astrology, astronomy and the spritiual side of things. The only difference I would consider in myself is that I've never been really carried away be any of the above mentioned subjects since they have never been able to clearly explain and differentiate the various questions that arise in my head while I meditate and while I see the pratical workings of the world and human interactions. For instance, when I studied astrology and came into contact with various astrologers, the majority of them atleast, were obessed with thinking that they knew everything from the life of a human birth to the death of the same human and this does not seem to be the case. But many are not willing to accept the limitation of mortal knowledge and hence continue to follow a path that cannot transverse the mortal realm and is bounded by the many limitation of this plane. The same applies to any knowledge we seek here, but it does not contain or have a strong 'Truth Factor'. It is such a knowledge that will be gained in much when a person is born and will be completely lost when a person dies, or better put crosses over. Though inspite of this, it is my firm belief and I sure hope the belief of many that there exists a certain knowledge set that will continue on and on no matter how or what dimension we exist in and no matter who we look at it. This knowledge or 'Truth Factor' will only keep our energy in harmony with that of nature's and will bring us a step closer to prefectionisum.
Hope you enjoy your stay
