A share from ISHA UPANISHAD
The Shanti Mantra :
Om purnamadah purnamidam purnat purnamudacyate | purnasya purnamadaya purnamevavashishyate || Om Shantih Shantih Shantih hi||
This is One of the greatest gift to the humanity.
The concept of Zero comes from this very Shanti Mantra.
In linear mathematics, we will always find that when something is taken out from something, that something from which things are taken out lacks.
If we take some furniture out from a room then that room is minus those furniture.
That means this room is not what it had before.
This is a linear thinking.
But here the Rishis gave us a completely different outlook towards life.
The spherical thinking is :
That is full. And this is also full.
This fullness has come from that fullness. And in spite of this fullness having come from that fullness, that still remains full.
A mother gives birth to a baby.
A baby is also complete. The mother is also complete.
Just because the baby is born, the mother is not lacking something. In fact, it has added to her glory.
The concept of Zero, without which nothing could have happened in this planet.
No computer technology, no science could have progressed.
That has (its) origin here in this very Shanti Mantra.
From the fullness, comes out the fullness, and still the fullness remains fullness.
We can go on analyzing this very Shanti Mantra on various levels:
Spiritual level, Material level, level of Mathematics, level of Physics etc.
It is pregnant with huge information.
When we share our Peace with others, our peace will not be lost.
When we share our Knowledge with others, we won’t lose the knowledge.
It remains complete inside us.
Similarly, this Universe, in fact it is multi-verse, enormously huge, is dynamic. Many things are being born here everyday and dissolving back into it everyday.
Still both the manifest is complete and the unmanifest is also complete.
The Rishis say Shanti Shanti Shanti – three times.
When our environment is disturbed, we cannot sit there and think about or contemplate on Knowledge.
When the Knowledge is to flow and transfer, the environment needs to be Congenial.
Our body-mind complex needs to be fit on the third level, the level of the Self, the Being and Inner Peace. Hence Shanti-Peace is emphasised.
A Peaceful mind can probe into something beyond, can grasp that something which cannot be grasped by the little mind.
The intellect cannot access to things which our spirit can get access to.
And for that the wholeness is essential.

Six ways you can make friends with time.

4. Structure your time
But most of all
Be self aware
So make it a point
To be on time.
Personally speaking, I have a deep interest in the art of movements, especially the ones that elucidate the flow… perhaps that is why I love dancing but on the other hand I have been equally captivated by the beauty of Tai chi and more so Qi Gong.
The healing energy of movement has often been a subject of deep passion, respect and research for me.
Likewise I am especially fond of the flowing Waltz as well. Since childhood, dancing comes naturally to me but have always found myself grappling to understand why martial art is even necessary.Until much later I started exploring the potency of energy in each of us…through a little introduction into Tai chi as well by conscious choice.
Allow me to present my reflections on this subject in a flow….
In a dance
There is an interconnect
Of emotion and movement
As to emote is to sense
The feeling in the flow…
In dance there is an awareness
Of moving in response
As in one step less,
The music moves on
And you are left to improvise
On how to match the steps in rhythm.
Yes, truly to dance is to enjoy the life in the moves.
In martial arts
There is flow too
But a flow that is ever in alertness,
In strategic moves and self defense
The speed and swiftness
In reaction and response.
Martial arts often feels like dance… t
But often the difference
Is between life and death.
Both are connected in the deepest sense and yet distinctive like chalk and cheese.
The intention to dance and to fight…is what differentiates.
We dance to let go, to enjoy this now and celebrate it.
In awareness is a flow that merges in harmony to synch in with now in artistry of the moves
The warrior is fighting for peace for survival against all odds
Not knowing what is the next move but yielding to the now to decipher the countermove and strike.
Here too there is often a display of extreme artistry of motion in accuracy of time.
To learn both, takes dedication and practice in patience.
But most of all is the need for relentless will & passion to persevere .
Yes, there is a dancer in a warrior
And a warrior in the dancer.
Choice rests within you.
Just remember, to dance is to live the moments and explore its most aesthetic potential in the flow… choose not to make dance a fight.
Stay joyful in peace.
To learn martial arts is to get into the arena and survive.
Attack or in self defense with least possible harm to get out of harms way to stay in peace.
Both may have their own relevance in purpose
To negate one is to look at only one half of the circle
Just as much as joy is part of life
Safekeeping the freedom to be
Is equally important in every now…
Do you want to dance in peace
Do you want to fight for peace.
Choice is yours to make
Peace or war!
Living well is a choice you make!
Live vibrantly without uncertainty
Take the step to make a choice
With all your heart and mind.
If you don’t take your decisions
Some one else will.
Better you make it a point
To trust your decisions
And keep the faith.
More you will live without fear
Its your life after all!
Begin to love life.
And live life lovingly!
Your vision begins it all!
You create a mission
You chalk out a plan
You choose your path
And keep moving towards it
You take the steps to fulfill your dreams
Everything happens at the right time.
Keep persevering keep implementing
Towards the purpose of your being.
Tap into ur own power in perseverance.
In the quantum level
In our cosmic consciousness
Our energies, transforms itself
As a pattern in the making
Charting us along
the evolutionary pathway.
Our imagination is energy
Of the source code
Dancing in all its uniqueness
Yet energy at its core is oneness
For all is interdependence
In the interweaved tapestry
Of life and living.
Collating confounding concepts Conundrum of collectives
Of creative connections into
Coexistence in collaboration
Of potential into the possibilities
Modifying thoughts to morphing ideas
Energy may alter in shape and form
Yet the truth of energy is omnipresence.
Sharing my artwork here with my musings on Peace.
In the forest of your mind
Wanders many creatures
Great and small
Playing the game
Vying for attention
Fighting for Survival
To be heard and to be listened to
To be acted upon and manifest itself.
Your history and future
Dancing a tango with each other
In this present moment
But in-between and betwixt…
There is a space of quiet
Of all pervading calm
Within lies a lake of stillness
Or call it a pool of peace.
A watering hole of wisdom
A centering space of simplicity
As all illusory creations of the mind
Partake in a regeneration.
As the thoughts refresh themselves
The mind collects itself once more
All is Serene and tranquil inches now
Peace pools in and life evolves…
In the vastness of the ocean
Of our beautiful mind
Our thoughts come and go
Like the waves along the way!
All of our thoughts
Which are so full of self
Of what to do
Of how to achieve and accomplish
Makes us centered on getting!
When our thoughts
Begin to shift
To include the rest
In goodwill and trust
For the benefit of all…
The self finds joy
Of giving in gratitude
Thoughts become expansive
As the truth of oneness
Truly manifests itself
