Paradox of Duality

Life & Death!

Love & Hate!

Fire & Ice!

Night & Day!

Light & Darkness!

Bliss & Suffering!

Pain & Pleasure!

Providence or coincidence? Cause & Effect! Divine Will or Contruct of man’s design!

You reap what you sow- this may be true for a responsible adult, but what about a child born into chaos?

What about the burdens gifted to us by the generations before us?

What about the technology and evolution as our tools?

Personally, I do not believe in coincidences. I believe in the Providence. We are in good hands, only if we keep firm faith. Why be afraid of death, when it is a certainty in life? Why be afraid of losing everything, when what’s promised and Willed cannot be withheld?

Despite this fact, the paradox of duality in my view then, is a question of manifestation. Manifestation of Divine Will, manifestation of the Divine Attributes.

Everything happens for a reason we cannot comprehend in its entirety. Our reason is limited by time, experiences and our imagination. It is limited by our limited knowledge.

The Divinity can keep illuminating even if all the oceans dry up. The man is a mere drop in the oceans.

We all have a purpose in life, what is yours? Hope & Despair, it is through belief in Providence that hope, struggle, suffering are designed to strengthen us.

My thoughts lately have been reduced. Reduced perhaps because of clarity, reduced perhaps due to my lack of reading and listening. It may be both!

No soul is burdened beyond what it can bear. The greater the test in life, the greater the suffering and trials, the greater the chance that a dancing star can emerge. The chaos within will come to cessation. The air above will get lighter, the summit is reached and reward is gained. The scenic beauty and proclamation of success & happiness. There are many paths that lead to the top of the mountain. You have the tools to forge forth.

Paths we walk

While walking along the river bank earlier, a thought occurred to me. Not the first time I have thought about it, but still reflecting again in that moment provided a good analogy.

Just like how the path along the river is meandering, so too does the path we walk in our lives. Our sights are restricted, we can’t see beyond the next bend. The view ahead is revealed as we walk forward.

Most of the times, we don’t know what lies ahead. Just like walking along the river bank, in life too, there are known unknowns & unknown unknowns.

Still Searching

Standing in front of the mirror, in search of a different me. How is it that I can see myself, but cannot see my thoughts. The very thoughts that remain buried in the depths, it’s a struggle to scream them out! In the mirror, I see many faults. I see some good in me too.
Standing at the door, I step outside in search of a different me. How is it that I feel caged inside the four walls, but cannot escape those thoughts. The very thoughts that remain buried in the depths, it’s a struggle to scream them out! Standing at the door, I see the cage I am in, I see open scenery in front of me too.
Standing on the road, I start to walk in search of a different me. How is it that I walk with no destination in sight. I hear a call, “To Me you belong, To Me you shall return.”

Sometimes I write to release stress but also, to see what I have written as I read it back because in that moment, I am able to connect the ideas and writing with my thought patterns, my weaknesses, and see where I can influence a change. These spontaneous yet, linked thoughts help me a tiny bit to see things in myself that a mirror doesn’t show me. Writing is a form of therapy for me. Better written out than buried in my head. It doesn’t matter how it sounds so long as it helps.
