Simplicity of Profoundness

A very profound message. Felt like sharing this

Professor : You are a believer in God, aren’t you, son ?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in GOD ?

Student : Absolutely, sir.

Professor : Is GOD good ?

Student : Sure.

Professor: Is GOD all powerful ?

Student : Yes.

Professor: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to GOD to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn’t. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent.)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you ? Let’s start again, young fella. Is GOD good?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Is satan good ?

Student : No.

Professor: Where does satan come from ?

Student : From … GOD …

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student : Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?

Student : Yes.

Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer.)

Professor: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student : Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them ?

(Student had no answer.)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen GOD?

Student : No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your GOD?

Student : No , sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your GOD, tasted your GOD, smelt your GOD? Have you ever had any sensory perception of GOD for that matter?

Student : No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

Student : Yes.

Professor : According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student : Nothing. I only have my faith.

Professor: Yes, faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student : Professor, is there such a thing as heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student : And is there such a thing as cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student : No, sir. There isn’t.

(The lecture theater became very quiet with this turn of events.)

Student : Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There was pin-drop silence in the lecture theater.)

Student : What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student : You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and its called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, well you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man ?

Student : Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed ? Can you explain how?

Student : Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good GOD and a bad GOD. You are viewing the concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing.

Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student : Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going.)

Student : Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor. Are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?

(The class was in uproar.)

Student : Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class broke out into laughter. )

Student : Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.

Student : That is it sir … Exactly ! The link between man & GOD is FAITH. That is all that keeps things alive and moving.

P.S.

I believe you have enjoyed the conversation.

By the way, that student was EINSTEIN.

Illusions in the Reflections

Reflections in the stillness

On a patch of water

Reflections of sunlight

On a passing cloud

Reflecting colours

We humans have named…

The truth of clarity

Is the freedom in the uncertain

What seems to be, may not be

What is, may be not

What is apparent, may be invisible

What is assumption, may become a contradiction

Or simply delusions of our own imagination.

Or simply a clarity of illusions in the reflections.

Savvy

Was watching the reflections of sunlight dancing on this patch of water on the window sill of my terrace one evening. I was mesmerized by the fleeting cloud it had captured and its amazing colours that held my fancy for a long while…

One Tree

I came across this photo

And I think to myself

How insignificantly we think

Of nature, of every life form

Just because of plenitude

But the very same attitude

Changes completely in scarcity

A reality byte indeed

Gratitude to Nature

And its myriad manifestation

Let’s acknowledge the power of one

One Tree 🌳

One life to touch another

In a multitude of ways…

And create a positive difference

Create the possibility

It’s possible

They say…

What one sees as the end

Another sees a beginning

An attitude of positivity

Can change the world around.

To be able to believe & hope

Is the beginning of positive change.

So in possibilities of the potential

Take a leap of faith in trust

And simply know It’s possible.

Create the possibility!

Reaching beyond …

Often the difference

Between mediocrity

And excellence

Is in the ability

In reaching beyond

To go the extra mile

For a cause, a passion

In dedicated perseverance

Towards a larger purpose

That is where life feels most alive.

WAVES OF CHANGES

In deepest turmoil

In utter confusion

Comes a breakthrough

Paving a new beginning.

Question is how patient are we?

To be ready to wait

To be tested time and time again

And how perseverant are we?

To know the rising waves are transient

All is a matter of time

Through the darkness shines a light

Rays of hope, happen to arrive.

As Simple As That!

To care to feed your soul

Is to know what your soul truly needs.

Soul is subtlety, that is ever evolving

The soul knows the truths of being.

And yet the soul never commands

Feed your soul with peace

In the heart and mind.

Steer thoughts to think well!

Take care of the body that houses it.

All is transient and yet…

Every now in life can be better.

Feed the soul with love & hope.

Let go of hate and negativity.

Learn the power of subtlety.

There is no secret to evolved souls

Except letting go, without ego.

The ego has no place in the soul

Let go the spurious

You will be happy!

As simple as that.

Game of Life…

Nicely penned by someone……

I watched a local football match in a school playing ground.

As I sat down, I asked one of the boys what the score was.

With a smile, he replied; they are leading us 3-0.

And I said, REALLY.

I have to say you don’t look discouraged.

“Discouraged” the boy asked with a puzzled look.

Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle.

I have confidence in the team and the managers; we shall definitely overcome.

Truly, the match ended 5-4 in favor of the boy’s team.

He waved at me gently, with a beautiful smile as he left; I was amazed, mouth wide open; Such confidence; Such beautiful faith.

As I got back home that night, his question kept coming back to me –
…..
Why should I be discouraged when the referee has not blown the final whistle.

Life is like a game….

Why be discouraged, when there is still life.

Why be discouraged when your final whistle has not sounded.

The truth is that many people blow the final whistle themselves….

But as long as there is life, nothing is impossible and it is never too late for you.

Half time is not full time…..

Don’t blow the whistle yourself…..😊

*Be Alive*

Learning from Children

Taking things easy…

The day we learn to be light and live in lightness and not take things so seriously, we start truly living.

After all the sun will rise and set in its own course, life will flow in the river of time, why not think of living it cruising along knowing nothing lasts forever.

Whenever life feels a little too weary..

Know tomorrow is another day

And there is always a sun awaiting to shine…

On Trust

The Way of the Universe is Abundance
It is the way of nature.
We come from it and we are nature.
Our deepest intentions
Find its way to fulfillment in time.

What is important is trustfulness
In faith of the flow
In belief and hope

The truth manifests itself.

Stay patient

To unravel itself
And deliver in time.

Take what you need

Love and hope to bridge the divide

Faith and patience to move beyond

Courage and understanding to dare

Peace and passion to create some more

Healing and strength to help yourself

Beauty and freedom to enjoy this now!

Take what you need

But always remember….

Wiser to take that which we feel we really need this moment and maintain the state of positive abundance for others too.

After all there is so much good within all already. So simply take what you really need.

Being all that you can be!

The way we begin to see the world

Our world shapes itself accordingly

Lets choose to be all that we can be

Cause we can be definitely more

Than what choose to believe…

Lets never feel…

Stuck in the moment

Let care to reach beyond knowing

To consciously expand and align

Our deepest intentions in goodwill.

Lets begin to see the good we have

As well as share that good with others…

Life will begin to become lighter

And we will get wings to fly!

Lets reach our dreams

And create some more…

Remember, all of this can be done

By nobody else but us!

Be all that you can be.

Way of being

You show who you are

By the way you treat people…

Especially those who in a way

Have done wrong by you

Who didn’t treat you good

Who were nasty and mean

Who were happy by your loss

Especially these people

Treat them as well as others

Share goodwill from your heart ❤

Without expectations, be kind

Even with the most critical

They will come around.

Just trust in yourself

And your way of being.
