The question that wasn’t answered.
May 7, 2011

Pilate asks Jesus “What is Truth?” Jesus answers Pilate’s question with silence.

I always find this fascinating. Did his silence mean that the Truth was out there for us to find? Or did it mean that there is no Truth after all, but mere perceptions? Well, we are to ask ourselves and others the same question. What is Truth? Is it something that has been proved? But then, simply because it hasn’t been proved to be true, doesn’t mean it isn’t the Truth. And yet, again, when I use the word “Truth”, I ask myself again and again what Pilate asked Jesus. And again and again, I answer myself in silence. By remaining in the Darkness, the Silence, are we lying to ourselves? Are we in a cage, not knowing all the time that we have the key? We may never know the Truth, never. Maybe we will eventually come to know that we’ve been lied to all our lives when we cross over to the other side. So, till I finally know what the Truth is, and whether it really exists, I will answer the question in silence. But this time, it will mean that I’m waiting to realize that the key is still in my hands.

Co-Incidences?
February 20, 2011

Topic by Daily Post :

Co-Incidences. I don’t know why its so hard for me to believe in co-incidences. Confuses me too. What if there are no co-incidences? What if everything happens for a reason?

What if what we see in plain sight isn’t the whole picture? What if there’s a bigger plan behind each and every thing we do, each and every decision we make, each and every step we take? After a quiet time with myself, I realize that though this is the most confusing part of Life for me, it is also the part of Life that is the least confusing. It is easy to believe that there are no co-incidences, but no proof to back it up. Maybe I don’t need any. Maybe even that’s a part of a bigger plan taking shape. My purpose in Life has still not unfolded. But maybe when it will, I will have the answer. Maybe when it will, I will understand what I’ve been living this Life for.

My iPod

Topic #31 by Daily Post:

One piece of technology I can’t live without is my iPod. I was watching “The Book of Eli” yesterday and I realized that music can help you survive even in the most horrible situations. I like music [who doesn’t?] and I know that I can survive without food and water if there’s music with me. Another piece of tech that I can’t live without is my mobile phone. It may prove to be very helpful, you know. I guess if I keep writing, the list will go on, so i’ll stop here :P

Music is what feelings sound like.

Do I want to live forever?
January 28, 2011

Topic #29 by Daily Post :

Honestly, I don’t. I don’t want to live forever because that would mean that I will get to see all my loved ones die before me. And that’s not what I want. I’m actually okay with the fact that I won’t be living forever. I believe that every Life is a gift to become better human beings and rectify our mistakes. [yes, i do believe in reincarnation] This Life, to me, is an opportunity to realize or know my purpose on the Earth. To somehow play my part in making the world a better place to live in. Moreover, why would anyone want to live forever? I mean, we’d be doing the same thing for centuries and millenniums together. Wouldn’t that become a little boring? Death is like an adventure. Like, you set out to search for a treasure in a forest, but you don’t know what awaits you. That’s what Death is like for me. I still don’t know why some people fear death. Maybe, they fear the unknown. I like surprises. And I don’t like anybody ruining my surprise. Life is like a birthday party. You celebrate, and when you open up the presents, thats when you know whats inside. So, let Death be a mystery. Let us find out what happens after we die, after we die.

It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth — and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up — that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.                                                                                                                                                                                           -Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Let children walk with Nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life                                               -John Muir

Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   -James Dean

 

Do you believe in God?
January 15, 2011

This has always been a sensitive topic to me. Do I believe in God? I am a monotheist. The God I believe in, does not have any name. Its simply an entity to whom I refer to as “God”. Do you believe in God? Is there a thing such as a supreme power? To me, absolutely. I have often wondered about the Planets in space and what made them hang like that in space. I know there is a scientific explanation to this, but what if that isn’t enough? What if there is another huge body of energy holding all the things together? Like, if it wasn’t there, everything would fall apart and be destroyed? That is what I refer to as God. The Generator, The Operator, The Destroyer. The concept of Heaven and Hell is a little bizarre to me. Yes, I do believe that man has to punished or rewarded for his deeds on the Earth, but I believe that happens on a higher spiritual plane. I believe in reincarnation. Between two births, maybe man is the one who punishes himself or rewards himself for his deeds on the Earth, by means of understanding and correcting his mistakes and being sure not to commit them again in the next life. Well, back to God. Faith, is of utmost importance to me.

Faith, is taking the first step, even when you cannot see the whole staircase.”

So when I ask myself again, “Who is God?” or “What is God?” or rather “Do you believe in God?”, I always remember a quote by someone who I do not know [unfortunately]

It doesn’t matter whether you believe in God or not, What matters is what you believe about God.
