Through the hourglass

Since ages, through the hourglass, time has witnessed change in the society, while  Darwin’s law taught us of human evolution with developing intelligence along with changed bodily structure, we are yet to completely learn ,soul too plays an important role in the history of evolution.

An invisible, unknown entity, whose abode is universe and innumerable galaxies where it dwells is yet to be understood by mankind,soul is considered to be the most important topic of research in recent years.

Metaphysics , a latest branch of science, speaks on such topics but tries to find logical reasoning behind the same.

Ancient mythology and scriptures had illumined us about this essential part of our life.

Without a Soul, a human has no life.A body even though a mechanism, remains devoid of life without the soul.

If the body is dead, then does the soul die?

Nay, it skips out of the human cage and bondage .Then,is the body lifeless, because without soul, the body has no meaning ? If so, then why does the body gets hurt in pain ,if it is devoid of life? Millions of questions can struggle inside our phenomenal brain mapping , yet we lose the thread of this eternal question.

Whatsoever the logical reasoning behind this, the fact remains:

The beauty of a soul lies in the acceptance of its existence. The kind of love , a sufi feels for his Divine , is realized only through the rooh/soul.He who sings in the darkness of life and glimpses the eternal light penetrating through the dark sky , manifests the Divine and its bliss.

“Kehta hai man , kar qubool har dua meri , ae khuda

teri rahmat mein chipi hai meri zindagi

naa karo qubool toh koi gila nahi

bas nazre inaayat karna, mujh par

ae khuda….

yahi iltazaa hai … har pal, har ghadi”.

Life- A journey

Someone asked  what is it that makes you love travelling?

I was surprised and taken aback by the question. Is there any charm in sitting in a corner of a world enjoying a cup of coffee and tea every morning form the same set of cup and saucer ,watching the same panoramic view everyday ?Isn’t life more than this? Or is it just the comfort that we crave for? Do we hate changes or are we so afraid of the changes that occur around us, that we do not take the risk of stepping out of our fixed and permanent dwelling?

Our planet is the only one which until now supports life and is a place of enchanting landscapes and facets of nature.

Stepping out of the walls of our house,village,town,city or country ,shall make us believe what we missed by not traveling to the innumerable places.

Nature has abundance love and serenity to offer and any journey to its midst  shall rejuvenate our senses . Even if we travel to a nearby temple or a historical place,every such journey is informative,exciting, exhilarating and interesting .

It is the main  characteristic of a being to travel,the soul travels through several girths of births to ultimately be on earth . It is the continous journey that evolves one,whether by mind,body or soul.

Life is one such journey which gives us an opportunity to be closer to one of the glorious creations of the creator ,the  beautiful nature . This journey of life is an upheaval one with numerous tides and storms . Every step and travel teaches us a different aspect and truth about life.Had it been a static action and not a dynamic one,we would have become stagnant as the scum floating over the still waters .

It’s the flow,the run,which makes the river and the stream alluring and keeps it clean and pure. The flow is incessant and endless until it meets the gigantic ocean.

It’s the blooming of a bud which makes it beautiful ,had there been only buds or flowers instantly ,it would have been the most boring thing to watch everyday.

The process through which the bud blossoms into a delicate flower is a journey of that bud.

Like the birds flying high in the sky,who soar in search of food and shelter. It is the dynamism, the motion of life that makes it more appealing and reverberating.

Had a sound wave never traveled, the classic piece of melody could have never been formed! And Music would have never been created!

The eternal truth of this life is to travel to the destination, in life whether for work,pleasure,peace or adventure.
