Even though being born in a Traditional South Indian Religious family, I believe I could never become religious as they wanted me.
Going to temples doing rituals, offering prayers with so much conditional norms that one felt blocked and locked. The reason became more obvious when I used to see religious priests keep mechanically chanting the shloka’s and if asked the depth of it, they went off in a philosophical manner of expalanation that they have learned. I truly never met one religious priest who has inner experience, everyone talked by quoting from scriptures or from the Swami’s, Sages or Saints of past.
The whole beauty of the thing which I found in all the religious places of any religion as I grew up, I found it was truly crowded by people who were miserable, sad, lost, frustrated. Yes during festivals people used to throng to gain bigger blessings by gaining a glimpse of the deity or have special benefit from the prayer sessions. the more I looked around it was always pertaining to the huge selfish I.
For it is a true thing that everyone only truly loves oneself only and for the ego satisfaction of the ‘I’, love, emotional changes, thoughts, life, career, children all goes through. Both inside and outside the religious places I found beggars, one looking for coins then now asking for bigger denomination outside, while the one inside looking for bigger satisfaction of the needs of fulfilment of the I’s.
One who is truly happy will never go to religious places to pray, worship or seek. In Happiness one finds Divinity all around oneself, for it is the life that is truly alive. The existence of life is truly ecstatic in nature. The one who is happy is always in awe, reverence for in that true way of life one is alive and dancing to the universal tune of truth. The Divine is all around and in that very existence one is alive, those who are not able to see this, know this, realise this in the beauty of being alive, blossoming flowers, sound of birds, flowing air round, the ever changing artistic sky, flowing rivers, oceans and so much that surrounds every single iota of life around. Such a life will never have a narrow mind to go to religious worshipping places to find Divine.
Only a frustrated, miserable person who seeks a psychological ego satisfaction will leave the beauty around to seek relief in a confined space assumed to be the abode of the creator or a way to reach out to the creator. The worst scenario happens is when such relief seekers seek to know the ‘creator’, ‘god’ from the housekeeper of the confined space, who may be surviving on the earning from it. Such limited scoped person can HE show the way to creator, if He knew the way, He would never be in the confined, conditioned space, for He would realise that Divinity is not in walls but beyond, beyond the scope of any religion or religious dogmas.
One truly can never find peace, happiness from outside, for outside is a condition, a rule, a formal way of living. The mind which is at gross levels or grossest levels of consciousness will never find peace or happiness for it has to follow the norms, conditions and rules. It is a confusing way, deceptive path, full of complexities and conditions that emerge from the conditions, norms and its effects and after effects of it.
Such a mind is full of thoughts, full of complexities and full of conditions, thus it remains confused, tense and continuously under stress. The beauty is all religions talk of silencing the mind, one has to have conditional silencing of the mind, holding the reins of religious support. This is impossible, for one cannot silence anything anywhere. This is the reason one keeps seeking but attaining nothing even with all the seeking, knowing, realising, connecting and attaining.
Silence happens with “Wholistic Mind”, but the moment it happens, one becomes happy, joyful and complete, thus detached from all surrounding for in that Wholistic Mind one is complete.
Soul Searchers intends to raise the consciousness of people and to help create a turning point on this planet—a world where people are in tune with their inner-selves, living healthy and creative lives and are no longer swayed by religious dogma or politics. The purpose is to bring the state of righteousness (dharma) back again in current state of political turmoil and selfishly motivated people. We believe the truth can be known and realised through guided and workable ways. Thousands have benefited from the process of initiation and share them with your friends and family and together we’ll touch and transform lives.
Walking the path of self is a condition but being on the path of selflessness brings one about to the pathless way. Come on the way of knowing the way and in the process bring about a change within to get liberated.
