Opening Doors!

  Rays on the dewy Grass,
  Shine Shine, Broken Glass,
  A Butterfly by my side,
  Retreated flight, No blooms in sight.

  Birds in singles, Fly the distance,
  High poised buildings, Broken wings,
  Well trimmed trees, Forever Green,
  Chopped and cut, before they are seen?

  Damp mud, thick soil, scent in the Air,
  Paved paths, Concrete Roads, A Sad Affair.
  Elemental Spirits, Dwelling in the midst,
  City Voices and the noisy big kids.

  Memories, Forgotten thoughts,
  I search in dreams, that which i have lost,
  A strange bond with my kin,
  A Secret Garden.

Heathrow Encounter - The Valkyries and Me.

Anyone working for the Export sector of the Fashion Industry will agree when i say that Its again that time of the year where the works immense, hours long, collections incomplete, deadlines pending and pressure mounting. All astrological connections and mathematical equations can go wrong when you work for an Industry thats completely volatile and unpredictable. The recessions hit hard but consumers still over consume, people in the west and east, still want to buy the latest trends , discard the old and bring in the new depending on changing seasons. Fashion, more than a mere commodity has now become a necessity.

And what better way than to promote your collection to a market like London, where you find the likes of top Notch Designers having their upmarket boutiques at Oxford Street adjacent to discounted stores like Primark, and mind you, both have a clientele to cater.
The bling, glim and glamour caught on to me. The colors , the styles, along with the early winter gripped me as i was busy the whole week with meetings, shows, shopping, and exploring London for the umpteenth no. of time till the wee hrs of morning.

The week comes to an end , but in the midst of all the materialistic chaos, i never really forgot my connection with the Cosmos. Its there with me where ever i go, whereever i maybe and each little sign from the Angelic world would catch my eye assuring me at every step that im not alone, not far away from the real world and that it is possible to temporarily strike a lopsided balance between whats soulfully true and what the world expects from you. We sadly live in a life where success is measured with work, money, the no. of businesses your involved with, the car you drive and ofcourse what you wear.

The last evening at Heathrow, Terminal 5 and after going through a grilling security check, we decided to do what man knows how to do best - while away time in the duty free, foolishly spend money and shop because :-
1. Nothings really enough.
2. Theres always a better deal we dont want to miss.
3. We have time..or so we think.

Totally exhausted with the idea of walking and shopping with handbaggage, I leave the others and decide to sit right there on the spotless clean duty free tiled floor. Obviously they wouldn't have seating arrangement in the duty free. Who comes there to sit? People whizz by with bags they can just about manage to hold on to.

I plug in my ipod and decide to listen to Enya amidst the several flight announcements, chatters from people and noisy kids. I slowly drift away pleasantly watching the world go by and i open the book Valkyries by Paulo Coelho to the page i had last finished off.

"Opening the Gates to Paradise", "Communication with Angels" and "Breaking the pact", "The pact of fear, trade, demonic surrender and growing to the light of St. Michael. The day will come when mankind will be able to enter the Gates of Paradise if they overcome their challenges , strifes and approach the light. A new light where everything unimportant will fade away and what remains is your souls memory. A memory we all have within us but never explored. A memory that reminds us each day that we can still communicate with our Angels and the Celestial. The memory that whispers softly about our evolution, our growth and the purpose of every lifetime.

Reading the book , i lost track of time, of things around me, I went deep into myself and realised that im mentally assimilating these words and feeling it for the very first time. Right in the middle of a world and yet i was being able to connect with something deep. I couldnt quite process instantly what was happening to me and everything around seemed dazed, almost like a dream. I lowered the book and i saw the people rush by oblivious to some very important, meaningful truths we are all bound by. I looked at the huge lit hoardings of the latest branded perfumes and burberry bags and i thought to myself , if Angels are present everywhere, they are right here trying to communicate with me at Heathrow - Terminal 5. The mysteries of Life can be deciphered Anywhere Anytime.

And as these thoughts clouded my mind, i glanced to my right and saw a few service people carry a huge circular black board with "ANGEL" printed on it, just besides it in italics was the word Mystery and Addiction. It was a hoarding for a perfume they were taking down the elevator to put up i assume. But what are the chances of sitting right there, thinking of exactly the same connection and seeing it go by. What is the probability of noticing it amongst everything else i could've seen instead of this.

Yes the signs were clear, it was happening,the Angels were there communicating.

As i saw this, i mentally said a quick Angel prayer and smiled at the synchronicities of Life, at the miracles that you face each day but realise them only if you are intune with the Cosmos.

Letting go of the feeling which i know ill always remember, i picked up my bags and left for the flight.

A few minutes, A Memory, An Experience with the Angels!

Thursday, 20 October 2011


For each passing day,
Dancing with the Faery Fae,
The angels softly say,
Carpe Diem - Sieze the day!

Photographs of sacred moments,
The eyes behold several sentiments,
A vast collage of hopes and dreams,
Captured instantly in deep memory.

I find my questions along the way,
For the book of answers i secretly pray,
I ask the creator and his flawless trail,
My destiny, a destiny i constantly make.

But several loops of rings combine,
In one energy , at one time.
My path with his inter wined,
A love i lost, again i find.

Together we tread the lonely trek,
Light working on a higher vibration,
Discovering forgotten Gardens of Eden,
Lands of Ancient Creation.

And with each passing day,
Grows the strength of the Faery Fae,
As the angels forever say,
Your life is yours to build and break.

Setting off in a train, i was ready to explore the forests and greens of Coorg, I hadn't heard much about the place and i was obviously unaware of what i was going to be experiencing. But i do believe with all my heart that we meet people when we need to and we experience life when we are meant to.
Ambling around the forest with a bottle of water and a cam, i decide to to plan the next day trip, the guides were helpful and we decided to leave for the Tibetan settlement Bylakuppe, Indias second largest Monk city. 

A pair of Jeans, a white tee and i explored one of the most prettiest places i had been to. I realised that it wasn't pretty in the conventional sense of the word where everything is picture perfect, but just the essence of the place, the scent of incense in the air, the red robes and shaven heads, temples in all their architectural glory, and the smiles, oh the smiles and peace on every individuals face was something i hadn't seen in a city like Mumbai for a very very long time.

It was truly a City of Monks, as they started their day at 4am , with the chants of OM MANI PADME HUM. The drumming, the energy was pulsating as i stood outside and watched in silence, in reverence in front of the tall beautiful statues of Buddha and his Avatars. A moment of peace swept all over me as i realized how simple life can be, when the monks quietly go around for offerings around the city with a little bowl in their hand, collect and eat whatever is given, together in harmony. 

Tibetans from all over the world came to be a part of this settlement in India, it was indeed their true home. Basic education, degrees in science art and commerce were given along with food shelter basic clothing, medical facilities and every basic convenience. The monks further chose to study and serve for 18-20 yrs thereafter or set forth to explore a different world, it was their choice , their right and they were free to exercise it.

Just a day, was all i had to experience a serenity which we usually try to find in cities but the efforts go in vain. I do agree that peace comes from within, but i also believe that the surrounding, the life around you, influences man at the stage we are in today. We are yet not 'The Buddha' and yet we all will be following the path one day  sooner or later is for us to decide.

I end this little note, with a writing that i was compelled to jot down on my way back to the forest of Coorg.

"The scent of Incense fills the air,
The flame of candles lights the stair,
With every climb towards our path,
With love, faith and hope bound in our heart.

The beat of drumming in sacred time,
The prayer sang in harmony and rhyme,
Maroon cloth draped in modesty around,
Simplicity of life, still to be found."

-- Bylakuppe (Coorg, India)

I could safely begin by telling you that Art plays a large part in making our lives infinitely rich. 

Imagine, just for a minute, a world without Art! (please consider the impact that lack of graphics would have on your favorite video game, movie, computers, mobiles etc – technology we depend on so highly these days.) 

Art stimulates different parts of our brains to make us laugh or incite us to riot, with a whole gamut of emotions in between. Art gives us a way to be creative and express ourselves. For some people, art is the entire reason they get out of bed in the morning. You could say "Art is something that makes us more thoughtful and well-rounded humans."

On the other hand, art is such a large part of our everyday lives that we may hardly even stop to think about it. Look at the desk or table where you are, right this minute. Someone designed that. It is art. Your shoes are art. Your coffee cup is art. All functional design, well done, is art. So, you could say "Art is something that is both functional and (hopefully) aesthetically pleasing to our eyes."

Please note that ART has not always been what we think it is today. An object regarded as Art today may not have been perceived as such when it was first made, nor was the person who made it necessarily regarded as an artist. Both the notion of "Art" and the idea of the "Artist" are relatively modern terms. Art is subjective, and means something different to every single person on earth. What one individual might connect to, the other might not and vice versa. But every art has its own value, a beautiful story behind it.

Art is not necessarily , an interesting painting or sketch , Its anything that an individual likes to create, poetry you like to write, music , art films , Authors who inspire you,or  a community within the society who works closely with art , photographs taken when youve travelled; not necessarily to great locations, even on the streets of Mumbai or villages of India. 
Art is VAST and transcends barriers of locations cultures religions and races.

This article, and my future art articles is an attempt to combine Art and Philosophy.
In our grand universe i believe, both are closely connected, when we try to extract the essence of something invisible and bring it to visible ; tangible form for people to see observe love and relate to.
                         A Charcoal Sketch by me. 

An abstract pencil and charcoal artwork signifying the importance of relationships and how interconnected we really are.  As seen the umbilical cord from the baby travels all the way across the sketch vertically connecting all life forms. The leaves signify life growth nature and peace residing together in a complex world. Different ages, caste and cultures inhabit Earth and yet we experience different emotions , feeling and sensations as we change grow and evolve. We are all connected by just one energy at the end, and yet we see our selves as separate.

In a serene night she softly glows,
Behind the veil of dense , dark clouds.
A shift in scales, the highs and lows,
As her energy i take, a power behold.

A midst the chaos of life uncertain,
My destiny chooses a road of its own.
So much have i lost, and yet i have grown,
A lonesome gaze views the unknown.

A soft sigh escapes my lips,
I gasp a breath of air, A drink of life,
I quietly walk away, leaving all behind.
I look back again as i cross the line.

In a distance, i find once again,
A trust, that my love wont go invain,
I take the steps, the north star my guide,
The Journey of Love, A Magickal Ride


The flame , me and all thats inbetween,
Shadows the visible, nothing is seen,
Doubts and fears blurring the sight.
Fools and folly, judging wrong and right.

Voice of truth, but words unexpressed,
Wisdom profound, yet thoughts meaningless,
Emotions deep and feelings stifled,
The journey of Love, Fiercely Battled.

Innate strength of a mortal,
Tested through every lifetime,
Victory and Defeat, far away bells chime,
Redemption of the soul, the heart and mind.

I found myself ; through the war,
The ticking clock, heals all scars,
And what remains is simply,
The flame, me and all thats inbetween

Saturday, 3 September 2011


In Confusion, Somewhere lies Clarity
We begin to Accept Uncertainty.
Our fears Rise and then Fade...
We begin to accept our Fate.

And then we go...
Like Warriors we pledge our Soul..

For everything in the Universe...
That's ours to discover.
For nothing but the Truth...
That holds the highest power.

A Trek Towards Destiny

The seconds silence after a speeding train..
The glistening tracks after a torrential rain…

The beam of light after a dark night..
The morning mist that blurs our sight.

The shine of a firefly tricking our eyes..
The slow steady flight of a butterfly.

The strength of a mountain sterdy and still..
The wave of a river, peace and tranquil.

It was a moment of beauty, a moment of love..
A trek towards destiny , together as one.

A feeling so alive, exploring the lines..
Revelation of mysteries locked in time.

I lift the veil and open my eyes..
Im going home now, a home that’s truly mine.

My love beckons from ancient lives..
Together we journey, a path we unwind.
I found you today, ill lose you tomorrow..
But our spirits will remain, united forever.

And Through The Microscope We See

"And through the microscope it reveals itself,
Mystically inclined, impeccable detail,
Highs and low, the fast and slow,
Treading paths, unseen, unknown.
A never ending cycle, free and bound,
The wave of soul, silent and sound,
Kingdoms and elementals reside as one
And all the fascets intricately woven.
And through the microscope it reveals itself,
Timelines and eras, past and present
Ancient findings and current mometys
Whats to be seen , is left untended.
A never ending cycle free and bound
the stars and planets, still to be found
Discovery is endless, the deeper we see
Entagled knots, finding lesser clarity
But that is how we want to believe,
Blinding ourselves to wonder and mystery
Separating the layers, leaving behind,
The unwanted aspects of there is to find."
-Michelle P.

Windmills Of Your Mind

"The human psychology benighted by aggression
As the compelling curiosity hits the demon
The diabolism within stands high
And the menacing thoughts run wild
The want to eliminate
Those everlasting phantoms written in fate
The montheism still holds faithful beliefs
Yet the tempter, satan wanders scott free
The exorcism should be performed
For the evil demolished and divinity called upon
The rolling windmills of the human mind burnt
For now the satanic influence has been abandoned
A vision , a dream appearing in the ashen sky
An only alibi to the hidden thoughts in our lives
That one day the devilish strength
Will be cremated and left behind."
-Michelle P.


The Body of B. Franklin,
Like the cover of an old book,
Its contents torn out and
Stripped of its lettering and gilding,
Lies here food for worms,
But the work shall not be lost,
For it will as he believed,
Appear once more,
In a new and more elegant edition,
Revised and corrected
By the Author.
-Benjamin Franklins epitaph

I Believe In Miracles

I'm sure everyones heard the song i've titled my note and according to what i have noticed around 80% of the people living today believe and pay close view to miracles. The other 20% who say they dont and believe only in themselves are oblivious to a very scientific yet unexplainable concept.

The terminology "miracle" is basically when you need, want or desire something and it comes to you completely unexpected, ofcourse needless to say it always has a positive outcome. Look around, theres a miracle happening just round the corner to someone, maybe to you. Look ahead, theres a miracle happening just waiting to be noticed.Miracles happen everyday and the more youll attract miracles, the more they'll happen. Yes this theory would seem familiar if you believed that "the universe conspires to give you what you want". The more you focus your personal energy into something you desire, the more its being heard by the universe and eventually the same thing bounces back in reality. Its like saying each action happens twice, once in the mind and once in reality. What everyone needs to do is just train their minds in a systematic way to a different perception of everything. I personally just got enlightened of this concept last year and i think my own life has changed a lot for the better. I actually found myself achieving things that were not very likely but yes it happened which left me a very happy person.

Ask, focus, visualise, belief , faith and gratitude is what brings about a miracle. Visualisation being one of the strongest tool for miracles to occur primarily because you are actually sending out energies to the cosmic of you already enjoying what you want and obviously that will bounce back to you by default. Visualise your dreams and expect your miracle, see it happen in your minds eye. Miracles open a world of limitless possibilities. miracles possess an electromagnest energy. Desires and dreams together create a new energy every night as the mind falls into the sleep state. The fulfilment of this dream is a "miracle".

Showing gratitude could speed up the process of miracles. Yes its simple, the more you thank, the more happy you are, the more grateful you are for something, energies, and your words are automatically reaching out into the cosmic and speeding up the process of giving you more each day.

Besides books like The Secret, Paulo Coelhos -The Alchemist and now even bollywood flicks like Om Shanti Om, albeit in a cliched way, want people to understand this very very simple concept and try to apply it everyday, from small things to big everything is attainable if the needs , desires are ofcourse realistic.

The word miracles suggest Intuition, Hope, and Magick. Basic magick spells carried by pagans wiccans all around the world is through visualisation release of energy and intense focus and thats how a miracles comes their way. Using natural energies of elements like earth fire water air along with your own personal energy can bring about dynamic changes and inturn miracles happen.

As we have just entered the new year 2008, make miracles the theme of your dreams, the resolution of your year and the focus of your desires and they will occur. It's time we all began to realise that everyone is entitled to living their dream life, entitled to expect miracles, entitled to see what they desire happening. i end this note by suggesting:-

Mix your dreams with a spoonful of positive thoughts and walah! Youve got your own miracle receipe!

--This article was inspired from the books "The Secret", "Earth Air Fire & Water", and a recent article in Times Life.

A Cosmic Awakening!

How near the truth is, yet how far away we search for it.

Like fish unaware that they are swimming in water, we are unaware that most of us arent really living...just merely existing. We fail to realise we are immersed in spirit. With time we may percieve the presence of the spirit as the veils of illusion lift. For this we need to observe understand and reflect on the signs and changes in our behaviour pattern and circumstances that have formed a web around us leaving us confused disillusioned and lost.

I came across a beautiful article written in the healthypages.net forum under spirituality. 12 Signs Of the Awakening Spirit written by Geoffrey Hoppe and Tobias made me realise that what i and many others are going through at the same time is not just normal or destiny or circumstances or just a "rough patch" or "bad phaze" in our lives. It is not "planetary or zodiac influence" all the time. It could be something else...It could be something deeper. It could just be a "blessing in disguise". It could just be your path to a "soulful life". It's your call to act upon it once you realise.

Twelve signs of Your Awakening Spirituality... 

1.Body aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back.
This is the result of intense changes at your DNA level as the "Christ seed" awakens within. This too shall pass.

2.Feeling of deep inner sadness for no apparent reason.
You are releasing your past (this lifetime and others) and this causes the feeling of sadness. This is similar to the experience of moving from a house where you lived in for many, many years into a new house. As much as you want to move into the new house, there is a sadness of leaving behind the memories, energy and experiences of the old house. This too shall pass.

3.Crying for no apparent reason.
Similar to 2 above. It's good and healthy to let the tears flow. It helps to release the old energy within. This too shall pass.

4.Sudden change in job or career.
A very common symptom. As you change, things around you will change as well. Don't worry about finding the "perfect" job or career right now. This too shall pass. You're in transition, and you may make several job changes before you settle into one that fits your passion.

5.Withdrawal from family relationships.
You are connected to your biological family via old karma. When you get off the karmic cycle, the bonds of the old relationships are released. It will appear as though you are drifting away from your family and friends. This too shall pass. After a period of time, you may develop a new relationship with them if it is appropriate. However, the relationship will be based in the new energy without the karmic attachments.

6.Unusual sleep patterns.
It's likely that you'll awaken many nights between 2:00–4:00 a.m. There's a lot of work going on within you, and it often causes you to wake up for a "breather." Not to worry. If you can't go back to sleep, get up and do something rather than lay in bed and worry about humanly things. This too shall pass.

7.Intense dreams.
These might include war and battle dreams, chase dreams or monster dreams. You are literally releasing the old energy within, and these energies of the past are often symbolized as wars, running to escape and boogeyman. This too shall pass.

8. Physical disorientation. 
At times you'll feel very ungrounded. You'll be "spatially challenged" with the feeling like you can't put two feet on the ground or that you're walking between two worlds. As your consciousness transitions into the new energy, you body sometimes lags behind. Spend more time in nature to help ground the new energy within. This too shall pass.

9. Increased "self talk." 
You'll find yourself talking to your Self more often. You'll suddenly realize you've been chattering away with yourself for the past 30 minutes. There is a new level of communication taking place within your being, and you're experiencing the tip of the iceberg with the self talk. The conversations will increase, and they will become more fluid, more coherent and more insightful. You're not going crazy, you're just Shaumbra moving into the new energy.

10. Feelings of loneliness, even when in the company of others.
You may feel alone and removed from others. You may feel the desire to "flee" groups and crowds. As Shaumbra, you are walking a sacred and lonely path. As much as the feelings of loneliness cause you anxiety, it is difficult to relate to others at this time. The feelings of loneliness are also associated with the fact that your Guides have departed. They have been with you on all of your journeys in all of your lifetimes. It was time for them to back away so you could fill your space with your own divinity. This too shall pass. The void within will be filled with the love and energy of your own Christ consciousness.

11. Loss of passion.
You may feel totally disimpassioned, with little or no desire to do anything. That's okay, and it's just part of the process. Take this time to "do no-thing." Don't fight yourself on this, because this too shall pass. It's similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down for a brief period of time in order to load the sophisticated new software, or in this case, the new Christ-seed energy.

12. A deep longing to go Home.
This is perhaps the most difficult and challenging of any of the conditions. You may experience a deep and overwhelming desire to leave the planet and return to Home. This is not a "suicidal" feeling. It is not based in anger or frustration. You don't want to make a big deal of it or cause drama for yourself or other. There is a quiet part of you that wants to go Home. The root cause for this is quite simple. You have completed your karmic cycles. You have completed your contract for this lifetime. You are ready to begin a new lifetime while still in this physical body. During this transition process, you have inner remembrances of what it is like to be on the other side.

Are you ready to enlist for another tour of duty here on Earth? 

Are you ready to take on the challenges of moving into the New Energy? 

Yes, indeed, you could go Home right now. But you've come this far, and after many, many lifetimes it would be a shame to leave before the end of the movie. Besides, Spirit needs you here to help others transition into the new energy. They will need a human guide, just like you, who has taken the journey from the old energy into the new. The path you're walking right now provides the experiences to enable you to become a Teacher of the New Divine Human.

As lonely and dark as your journey can be at times, remember that you are never alone.

One Universal Source of Energy

Inherent in human nature is the desire to explore and investigate,
And few things capture a curious mind more easily than the unproven and esoteric. Breaking new grounds into areas previously unknown has always allured man, probably because of the enticing uncertainty of where it leads and the possibilities it brings.
Usually, man learns quickly what works and doesn't work, for example where reliable food supply and shelter can be found, which tools are valuable and which are not, etc. Sometimes, however, faulty explanations of actual phenomena can live on through generations, simply because the only thing that matters is that "it seems to work". "Seems to work"??? 

I disagree ...No one believes in something which just seems to work. Without proof and evidence the mind fails to trust to believe and though 80% of the world might mock the phenomena that lives on..the 20% believing in it know what they are talking about. Its always two sides of the coin.

Crystals , Dowsing , Seance, Tarot , Herbology, Colors, Insence, Wiccan , Witchcrafting, Reiki, Qabalah... they all only "seem to work??" Do these really work? Can they actually work on the aura of the body? Does an aura even exist? My answer would be YES for all the questions just asked by probably 75% of the population today. However people taking an interest in alternative therapies and believing in the concept of New Age T heorieswould agree with me.

We are all made of energies. Every tiny spec is energy. We are nothing but energy. Our soul is packed with energy. The world revolves around energy and thats a fact we all should know. God himself is an energy so we refer to it as a "force" rather than a "Him" which i'm sure most Churches Temples and Idol Worshippers would throw stones at me after reading this. If we understand the concept of energy why not understand the power of energy used in Crystals, in Tarot, in Reiki, in Pranic Healing? If the mere essense of this world is energy why not utilise the excess energy the world has to offer in healing the world..healing people..healing animals..even healing plants? We could heal all of it if we learnt the art of working with energy using different modes, tools and guided sources by just choosing the one which you feel strongly about.

We live in a world where lots of cleansing of the soul of mother earth needs to be done and this i say because of the intense suffering, disparity, unhappiness, dissatisfaction, we see all around us today. Twin Heart Meditation, Crystals Dowsing helps each one of us to bring out the saviour in us. We can save the world if we want to..its just a thought that needs to be acted out. You don't need to be a doctor, a scientist, a politician , or a UN member, you dont even need to be the "chosen one" towards the path of righteousness...you just need to understand the concept of energy and direct it towards positivity.

If this article has got you thinking I suggest you have a look at these sites that will let you explore realities you might never have thought of if you haven't already.... Think About It!!

Interfaith Harmony In A Globalised Society Omitting Religions

An article i recently read in the TOI. I have posted it aong with my approach and beliefs on the subject. It's a cause of concern in today's day and age and we the youth need to bring about a change before its too late.Read and Reflect...
Religion has always been a major factor in the growth of human civilisation. In art, architecture, music, literature, philosophy, law, moral codes and spiritual texts, many achievements can be traced back to its tremendous influence. Admittedly, tehre have been negative impacts, too-mass killings,pogroms, inquisitions...perpetrated in the name of religion. And all in the name of a divinity that is believed to be beneficient, merciful and compassionate!

We would do well to keep in mind this dual aspect of religious history, because a choice between these two paths will be absolutely vital in the decades ahead as we move into the global society. The divine will seems to have decreed that no one religion ever has or ever will, dominate the entire world. And , yet one thing is clear, the religious impulse is far stronger than had been generally realised. India is where four of the worl's great faiths-Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism-were born, and four others came to us from West Asia and have flourished for centuries-Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity and Islam.

The question before us is :-
Are we going to revert to mediaeval patterns of religious wards and conflict or are we going to eschew conflict and move forwards to a new dimension of interfaith dialogue, harmony and understanding?
There are several worldwide organisations which propagate inter-religious dialogue, including the Temple of Understanding. However, unless inter religious values are built into the educational system, it will be difficult to expect the younger generation to imbibe them.

Sir Aurobindo wrote "The conflict of religions arises because each oen claims the exclusive trutha nd demands complete adherence to it by the menthod of dogma, belief, ritual, ceremony and prescribed acts. The solution would be to recognise that the reat truth of religion is in the spiritual exprience of which it is an outer formation."

Instead of clinging to fixed ideas and rigid patterns, what is needed is a rediscovery of some of the insights of various religious and cultural traditions for a decisive breakthrough, a quantum leap into a new spiritual dimension.
The universal values inherent in all the great religious systems of the world need to be clearly articulated in terms of contemporary consciousness and the compulsions of the global society.
Whether it is the glowing vision of the great Upanishadic seers or the Jain tirthankars, the munious says of the Buddha or the passionate outpourings of the muslim sufis,the noble utterance of the Sikh gurus or the Avesta of Zorastrians are all imporatnt dimensions of religion often submerged under rituals and theology hence losing the real essense of the religion.

My take on this article,


We see the leap into the 4th dimension by 2012 where spirituality, religion and science combine to form a bigger picture, a better spiritually advanced intelligent world, where man realises that nothing governs the universe except the force of energy and science, where we realise that God himself is an energy, a force, a scientist, a mathematician who created a simple yet complex universe.

Idol worshipping in most religions is nothing but energies charging the idols with positivity to perform miracles what we want, hope and pray for. Receiving it is not a miracle but our positive thought reaching out in the universe forming the Universal Law Of Attraction between man and the universe.

When we start believing and adopting this mode for thought process will we as humans rise in spirituality, will we humans see the importance of the force we refer to as god rather than religions. Some say a universal religion is the right approach in the new age, others believe in crystals, reiki and other healing pratices such as pranic healing, theta healing all dependant on energies which make up the new age.

I ask this question again, Are religions really necessary? Doesn't it complicate the world further with several segregations causing man to be divided from each other and detached from spiirtuality, the universe and the real truth as a whole?

Think about it....think about a world with no religions, where man would see another man for what he is and not for the religion he adopts or believes in.

When scien
ce is advancing every day, we are still left behind with our own conservative way of thinking. Maybe its time for a change before its not too late and as the above article mentions this should be brought to light in each and every institution, educational system all over the world so that we secure a more intelligent progressive future in generations to come.

Your take?
