Reactions

All our lives are nothing but just reactions, reaction to what others have done.  And thus whole of our lives are false.
A wife is fighting with a husband on some trivial issue, not realizing it is because he said no that day when she wanted to go out shopping with him. It is her mind taking revenge in the only way she know.
A child may get sick, not knowing at all that this is the reaction to the neglect he felt from his parents.
We go on behaving in reaction.... most times even without knowing it...
Become aware, become authentic, only then will you see the door.... will you see the Path _/\_

Power

We all strive for power, some think getting more money will make me powerful, some getting more knowledge will give me more power, others believe in having influential friends will make them more powerful, and then there are some who think building strong body will make them more powerful.

There arises a natural question, why everyone is striving for power, power for what, power over what?
Power so that we can do what we want. Power so that others listen to us, we can control them, tell them what to do.
Yes by power one may control thousands, manipulate hundreds, but in truth, such a person is totally powerless...
He is the slave of his own mind, he behaves the way mind wants it to behave. He is actually the most helpless of all.

The real power is, control over one's own mind, मन .
Because one who has controlled his mind, is the only one who really knows what he wants. Because one who has controlled his mind knows divine, knows the ways of divine, is in direct touch with divine.

Contradictions

Why are our lives so full of contradiction? Probably, it is so because of our desire to be something, is it not so?

We all want to become something, to become successful, to be listened by others, to be respected by others, to be loved by others...
We all want to achieve something, money, name, fame, power, knowledge...
This desire of becoming something, achieving something keeps us locked in dreams of future and calculations of past.

As long as we stay away from present, that what is, we stay away from 'The Moment', away from that what 'IS"....
This distance from the moment, from the what is.... brings all the contradictions.....
