Snippet Thoughts : May be, a better way to explain GOD

An Alien could see the Earth as a red planet! Yes. Not  a beautiful blue ball, if his eyes sense the wavelength of blue as red. It is possible.

Maybe he could breathe CO2 because his respiratory system could be designed in that way.

Maybe he doesn’t need to eat, he may have an inbuilt photosynthesis mechanism in his body to supply energy from the sun. He may look green like a Hulk.

As far as we know, science educated us with all the facts that we can perceive with our 5 senses. Even with the support of the sixth sense our knowledge about the universe, earth, even the very near nature around us still remains a mystery.

Why don’t have a night vision? Why can’t we see air? What if water floats and air flows on the ground? What if dinosaurs had survived? What if some animal develops a sixth sense like we do?

If you look detailed into everything, you can find an accurately programmed system. If you look wider, the whole thing would have the same sync with the other programmes.

Sun is at a perfect distance neither it burn away the Earth nor it freezes us down. All the planets are in a perfect orbit and has their own agenda, from speed to mass, from gravity to the rotation, everything is in a perfect alignment.

I can’t tell you how. But if there is no Jupiter, then we would not be here right now! Thousands of asteroids would have bombarded Earth by now. Like this, though we cannot relate a direct connection, every single atom in the universe is well connected in a system.

WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT? 

Feeling GOD

Do you call it Nature? or Science? or like me it is something divine what we call as GOD. GOD is an arguable concept.

If you try to realize GOD via religions, then you would end up constrained to its cultural limitation and dwindle within a circle. You can only see GOD as what man imagined, yes religions are nothing but man-made concepts. Every religion is a different attempt to know the unknown GOD, the supreme power which regulates everything happens in the universe.

If you try to realize GOD via intelligence, then you would end up failing miserably as an Atheist because our intelligence what we scientifically claim as the best in the world, is not the best. It is just a fraction of our brain’s actual capacity. We cannot even define 100% how the Earth works and the ecosystem of Earth balances, even if you take another 10000 years. Even if we try still our extinction, we cannot feel the GOD with our intelligence.

Then what is GOD? How can we conclude on the existence of GOD when we are incapable of understanding systems that work beyond the capacity of our knowledge.

The answer is we call the Supreme power / Nature as GOD. You can feel GOD in anything and everything. That’s what wise people said “An Atom doesn’t move without GOD”.

You and I accepting or denying the existence of GOD is not going to affect the system at all. Everything happens around on its own agenda. The only thing we can control to an extent is our very own soul.

Both Atheism and Theism is a way of exploring GOD. But never get hooked to a system of religion, which will turn you an extremist at some point, thus you forget love and give place to hatred on others. Religion is an entry point to bring a belief on GOD, but religions’ road won’t take us to the Destiny. GOD is beyond the religions.

When you don’t have love and kindness, you are deviating from the system and become a Moron, who can never feel the Spiritual presence of the Supreme Power – GOD! SO FORGO RELIGIONS, LOVE ALL, HATE NONE.

Thinking about God is an intriguing activity that I get immersed into, at times. Especially at those sleepless nights, like a meditation or a lucid dreaming. Most of the time I wanted to write them down in the next morning, but I end up breaking my head “What did I thought? Good logics right! How did I forget?” 😉

This time I wrote down everything at night itself! Yay! –

Scribbling of the Day : Homeless Birds

Bird's home

A new Villa, a new dawn
His day started
with a lemon tea
and the fragrance of the mist.

There came a guest
He felt the poet in him
“Do you have a home?”
he inquired within.

“Look!” gestured
his guest flapped the wings
and began flying high to show
it’s little home – Earth!

His Villa
shrunk little as a hut.

A Secret about God, Religions and Virtues

water-with-sunlightI wish to share a secret with you, that I have learned in my spiritual exploration.

Your character and love towards everyone should invite people to ask curiously “What is the secret?”. Your answer can be any like Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism or any faith, even Atheism can be your answer.

What is the real secret here? Your Faith or your Virtues?

In fact, your virtues are the secret of your Faith that you’ve chosen to believe. 🙂

It is like keeping a precious jewel in a safe box. Without the box, the jewel would be lost, without the jewel, the box would be regarded worthless. Your faith is the safe box and your virtues are the jewels.

Regardless of whatever the safe box/religions you have, the jewels/virtues remain the same. God has all the virtues and needs no safe box like we need. Now this is the bigger secret one can understand at higher level of spiritual enlightenment.

So, value people based on their virtues, not on the basis of their religion. Respect their choice and freedom, they are free souls just like you and me.

Ten Qualities, God Brings In You

God 10 qualities

Many of us do believe in God. We pray. People go to temples, churches, mosques and many places of worships to see God. Yet it is a well-known fact that every theist would agree that God is everywhere, yet we have some psychological reasons to go to a particular place of worship and pray our God. Why everyone pray? is a separate topic of discussion. But does everyone really feel God? Does everyone follow God? If you say ‘Yes’ you know it well that is a lie.

There are millions of human beings who claim to be believers and followers of God, but they never possess the qualities. When you are truly in a relationship with God, you would have as many of these 10 qualities in you.

1. Loss of Ego

A man who believes in a supreme power God, he naturally loses his self-centered Ego and become selfless.

2. Love All

When God’s presence is there in a man, he will love everyone. They never build hatred in the soul.

3. Never Judge anyone

It follows a sequence, when love comes in unconditional on fellow humans, we never judge anyone. Man who believes in God knows that he has no authority to say someone is right or wrong. Man may perceive, but can never judge.

4. Forgiveness

If someone hurts us, forgiveness is an important quality of God which we should follow. Hurting them back is cinema culture to take revenge, not the sign of God.

5. Acceptance

Change happens as life moves on. Some call it karma, some call it fate, some call it law of attraction. But accepting things as it happens in life, without complaining or whimpering over others can only be possible with God’s support.

6. Happiness

When we accept things as it is, there is no reason to worry at all. Godliness is a bliss.

7. Fearless

Of course, there exists evil in this world. I am not telling about the flying blood oozing demons. But evil thoughts in human minds and thus changed evil humans. God gives fearlessness to fight both the evil thoughts and evil humans, but without breaking the qualities of God.

8. Righteous

Many may recommend you to win bad by another bad stuff. Violence by violence. But righteous soul knew that we could never bring a permanent justice, by a wrong action. God is always righteous.

9. Mindfulness

Higher level of spiritual realization will lead to mindfulness of understanding everything that happens around in a holistic way. Mind will be openly seeing the bigger picture of God and ignores the petty issues people do in the name of religions and customs. Not just about God but the perspective of whole life will change.

10. Non-attachment

The last and the most matured quality that God can bring in us is getting unattached to the worldly stuffs. Of course, only a very few geniuses can reach this stage and reached this stage before. If not in practice level, at least we can bring it to the realization level. As all paths to god say this unanimously, we own nothing in this world! Not even our very own soul which resides in our body. Just we all have a purpose, so we exist and evolve in a mystic journey called Life.

Many of the Atheists also will have these qualities and stay as a good human being. They are comfortable in calling that as high-level of intelligence and some will call it Godliness.

Know : Ramzan / Ramadan

Happy Ramzan to all Muslim Brothers and Sisters across the globe. Let us pray the God for peace, love and harmony to all religions, communities and nationalities with mutual respect. Whatever the differences we may have, God has already united us as human beings. We may have chosen different paths, different names, but God is always One.
RAmzan

Ramzan is the ninth month according to Islamic Lunar calendar. Ramzan (written as Ramadan) is derived from the Arabic root word ‘ramida’ or ‘arramad’ that means intense scorching heat and dryness, especially of the ground. Ramadan is so called to indicate the heating sensation in the stomach as a result of thirst. Others said it is so called because Ramadan scorches out the sins as it burns the ground. Some said it is so called because the hearts and souls are more readily receptive to the admonition and remembrance of Allah during Ramadan, as the sand and stones are receptive to the sun’s heat.

Ramadan begins after the month of Shaban, after the new moon has been sighted. In case new moon is not sighted then after 30 days of Shaban, Ramadan begins. The month of Ramadan lasts for 29 or 30 days depending on the sighting of the moon. If the moon is sighted on the night of 29th fast then the month of Shawwal begins from tomorrow and Ramadan is over. The 1st of Shawwal is the Eid also know as Eid-ul-fitr to distinguish it from Eid-ul-azha (Bakri Eid).

Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was revealed. The Quran clearly says “O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and rightousness” – Al Baqarah, 2:183. Fasting is to be done by all able bodied men and women and children who have reached puberty. If a person is sick or has some medical reason or if a women is pregnant then they are waived from fasting.

During Ramadan the people who fast are not allowed to eat or drink anything (including water) from dawn to after sunset. Also one has to restrain other body parts, which may render the fast worthless despite the main factor of hunger and thirst; so the tongue,

for instance, must avoid backbiting, slander, and lies; the eyes should avoid looking into things considered by the Lawgiver as unlawful; the ears must stop from listening to conversation, words, songs, and lyrics that spoil the spirit of fasting; and finally restraining of the heart, and mind from indulging, themselves in other things besides zikr or Allah (remembrance of Allah).

Also when one is fasting and feels hunger and thirst he has to remember other people in the world who do not have food and water. Charity is one of the extremely recommended acts during fasting. Muslims are required to give minimum of 2.5% of their annual savings as charity to poor and needy people. Also there are various sayings of the prophet (pbuh) where he has said that any charity made in Ramadan is multiplied upto 70 times. If some people are poor and cannot afford to give money then even a smile is an act of charity.

In recent years lot of research has been done about the medical benifits of Ramadan. The physiological effect of fasting includes lower of blood sugar, lowering of cholesterol and lowering of the systolic blood pressure. In fact, Ramadan fasting would be an ideal recommendation for treatment of mild to moderate, stable, non-insulin diabetes, obesity and essential hypertension. There are psychological effects of fasting as well. There is a peace and tranquility for those who fast during the month of Ramadan. Personal hostility is at a minimum, and the crime rate decreases. Muslims take advice from the Prophet who said, “If one slanders you or aggresses against you, say I am fasting.'” This psychological improvement could be related to better stabilization of blood glucose during fasting as hypoglycemia after eating, aggravates behavior changes. There is a beneficial effect of extra prayer at night. This not only helps with better utilization of food but also helps in output. There are 10 extra calories output for each rikat of the prayer. Again, we do not do prayers for exercise, but a mild movement of the joints with extra calorie utilization is a better form of exercise. Similarly, recitation of the Quran not only produces a tranquility of heart and mind, but improves the memory. There is a beneficial effect of extra prayer at night.

Some people think that one month of fasting is too much while others feel that its only one month where they can get their sins forgiven and get their rewards increased. May Allah bless us all and forgive all our sins and make us good Muslims and good human beings.
