Real Living

As a Householder I follow an approach that in traditional terms could be called realist as against idealist, though I call it pragmatic.



Duality and Non- Duality

As I had said I follow the path of Householder and duality is something that I understand differently. Duality is not out there but a product of our own mind. Let us see how it comes about.

Ending of time

Ending of time is the ending of all problems. This may seem a little enigmatic and to add to it I would say that time and space go together.

Inside and outside are the two divisions that we create arbitrarily.



This & That Whole

The Isha Upanishad starts with the famous and insightful verse:
Om
Purnamadah Purnamidam, Purnat Purnamudachyate
Purnasya Purnamadaya, Purnameva Vashishyate
Om shanti, shanti, shanti
Om.



Inerpretation

Life is not a problem but our interpretations of it create it. Therefore, in a sense we are the Lord of our own created problems.

The whole problem originates at a deeper layer in mind. We could call this an energetic imbalance. Hence, any attempt to do corrections at the surface yields no return.



New & Old

Religion and spirituality are good provided they bring in new ways of thinking. It is always the new that is a sign of life. Science too has a contribution to make in this regard.



Truth Diagnostics

Simplistic notions of truth are good and have a special appeal and may even be true but they don't work despite mass following. The reason is not far to see. It is wisdom arrived at by someone else.
