We know clearly that we are different from those plants and animals who too share their living existence with us in this world. We know that we are much more intelligent and have immense mind capacities. Yet we are unable to nurture that unique concept that we have in our minds to any logical conclusions that are agreeable to all. Some of us would say that we are religiously different. We follow different belief systems that we call as our religions. Our religions are about God, the supreme invisible power that created every thing and that keeps us going. But we are not able to arrive at some uniform thoughts about God with our intelligence.
In other words we fail to understand God. Had we been able to do it to some extent just as we progressed in our science and technology, how marvelous it would have been! But no, it is not taking place that way!
Why do we try to fathom an unfathomable God with our own yardsticks? When our science can have the same symbols, formulas, theorems and postulates universally, why can't we have such a thing in our spiritual quests and knowledge?
Is it so desirable to leave our spiritual quest unanswered and at primitive levels and allow our scientific quest only to go forward?
If all our achievements on this earth are to be forgotten one day and we are to forgo all those experiences and knowledge that we gained in this life just on that final day of our material existences what have we really achieved?
Was it all an illusion ? Maya ? Are we still forcing us to believe that way that old philosophers taught us?
No, sir, no! There could be better answers. And we need to find it out.
We need to find an answer to the whole purpose of our human life on earth. We need to find an answer to the purpose of our higher intelligence, our creativity, our reverence to God, our power of choice and our concepts of good and bad.
Let us nurture those thoughts as well while we pursue our living careers full of ambitions and aspirations in a lot of other facets of life.
Let not 2014 too pass away just as 2013 and those other previous years!
Let us also nurture that so-called spirituality in us! Not the conventional way, but using our inherent intellectual and spiritual capacities in a better way.
Wish you all a better and enlightening New Year 2014 !
May the Universe Administration of the Almighty God be Merciful to Our World to advance more towards Real Prosperity and Happiness!
