Evolve and Elevate: Price of Heaven, Bhagavad Gita is a great secret, The dark side of Light
Idea of the Week
“That’s what many people have managed to do; afraid of the depth, they have missed the peaks.
One has to take risks.
You have to pay for the peak, and the price is to be paid by your depth, your low moments. But it is worth it.
Even one moment at the peak, the magic moment, is worth a whole life in the darkest depths.
If you can touch heaven for one moment, you can be ready to live for the whole of eternity in hell. And it is always proportionate, have and half, fifty-fifty.”
Lesson of the Week
Bhagavad Gita says:
After hearing Bhagavad Gita from Lord Krishna, Arjuna accepted Him as Param Brahma (The Supreme Creator).
Every creature is Brahma (Creator) but Param Purshotam Bhagwan (Supreme God) is Param Brahma (The Supreme Creator).
Param means that He is the shelter to all. He is pure and not contaminated with the Bhautik Kalmash (Worldly dirt).
Bhautik: Related to physical body.
Kalmash: dirt, sin
He is Param Bhokta (Supreme receiver), Ajam Ajanma (unborn), Sanatan (timeless), Divyam (divine), Devam (God).
Arjuna says, it is very difficult to understand the personality of Lord Krishna.
Even the big Devtas (Gods) have also not been able to understand Him.
So how come a human being without becoming a Bhakt (Devotee) understand Lord Krishna.
Unless one reads Bhagavad Gita with complete dedication, it is very difficult to understand it because it is a great secret.
The objective of Bhagavad Gita is to help Humans overcome the unawareness of Physical World (Bhautik Sansar).
Inspiration of the Week:
The Dark side of the Light
I went through a life-changing experience lately.
7 days of power cut due to terrific landslides.
And suddenly life turned to stone.
Day one felt terrible.
Boredom seeped in and I felt crippled as I didn’t have my phone around.
Dead phone stared at me as if I was never going to see that bright screen.
Hoping that the Power would resume in a day or two, I squandered days just waiting for it.
But I woke up to that dark morning on the third day as well.
I could not afford to further lament and do nothing until it resumed.
Some things just don’t get their turn until the things we are addicted to aren’t taken away from us.
Books, radio, those little conversations with parents, that fresh air of the evening, that little nap, those moments with myself.
All of this was like waiting for me to indulge.
The third day was an epiphany.
I found myself entering into a different realm.
Not taking pictures but observing things and letting my lens create a memory.
Not watching those pixel videos but diving into the ocean of imagination through books.
Long pending books were finished.
Nights packed with long conversations with parents.
Stars and the sky had one new keen observer.
The experience was an eye-opener.
More than receiving information, sometimes it’s important we give time to observing, thinking, processing and contemplating as well.
So, now if I have to sharpen my mind in 15 minutes.
I’ll first turn the phone off.
And allow my mind to reset.
Let it connect with the things that will open it to take in more.
I would give my mind that ideal idleness to create space, so that it takes more stuff without being overloaded.
The mind needs information to grow.
But it also needs a filter to syphon the one that is unimportant and time as well to store that information before you stuff it with new.
The 7 days of Dark showed me the dark side of light.
