Tere bin – Incredible India

I simply love this song by Rabbi 🙂
and found a really fantastic video: Incredible India

it kinda suits it so well… and fills me with pride to be an Indian 🙂

The lyrics go by (borrowed), but my interpretation is:
the culture which is inculcated in Indians enables them to be immensely patient (love Gautam Budha’s teachings), unconditionally loving, compassionate, perseverant, humble, forgiving, and so on…… the list is endless….. and conquering the world in almost all fields….. be it Science, Maths, Medicine, Space, Economics… anything…..

Harmony

Came across this intersting article today…..
Hmmm… agreed- >”
Were the differences between the sexes to be abolished, human nature would become as flat-tasting as wilted vegetables.

Men have long disparaged women for no better reason than that they simply aren’t men. And women, too, have long dismissed anything men say or do with the mere epithet: “Men!” We should be thankful for the differences in human nature.

Were the differences between the sexes to be abolished, human nature would become as flat-tasting as wilted vegetables.

Let us look at that expression of masculine contempt: “Bahfeminine intuition!” Women are often, in fact, intuitive. So also, though generally in other ways, are men. Women’s intuition finds expression most often through their insights into people. A wife may warn her husband, for instance, “That person you’ve been thinking of hiring isn’t a good choice.” “What makes you think so?” demands the husband. “You’ve met him only once.” She replies, “It’s just a feeling.” “Feeling” exclaims her husband impatiently. “Can’t you explain yourself reasonably?” And so the husband ignores her advice. A year later, the employee absconds with half the company’s funds. Reason asks, “How does this differ from that?”

In this analyzing process, it cuts itself off from awareness of life’s underlying oneness. Feeling, on the other hand, reaches out instinctively to embrace life. Feeling is therefore more conscious of the underlying oneness of all things.
Women, for this reason, are more often intuitive than men. Feeling is the abiding reality beneath the fluctuations of emotion. Intelligence, similarly, is the abiding reality beneath the analyses
of reason. Togther, they create wisdom. If a couple wants to grow deeper in understanding, the wife should offer her feelings up for consideration to the husband’s impersonal logic. And the husband should draw on her intuition to direct his reasoning. If both partners are dedicated to knowing the truth, they will develop together a marvelous harmony.

If both partners are dedicated to knowing the truth, they will develop together a marvelous harmony and an ever-expansive vision of life.

The inner being, the inner intelligence

Hmmm… nice article….
By: Paramahamsa Sri Nithyananda

HEAR yourself when you speak. When I ask people who they are, they tell me they are doctors, spouses of someone or another, or friends of someone or another. These tags, doctor, engineer, husband, wife, father, daughter and friend, are labels given to you by the society. These tags are not you. “Who am I” is a deeper question beneath all these labels.
These labels serve well in the outside world. They mean nothing internally. Let us ask ourselves how to succeed in the outside world. You will say, “it is hard, Master”; you will advice me, “we should be ahead of the crowd in ideas, information, possessions, and even relationships.” I will ask you again, “Are you happy with everything you have?
You will say, “Master, there is no such thing as a happy state. We have to keep moving to be the leader in the pack.”
You are living and describing a rat race. The problem of winning a rat race is that even after winning you are no better than a rat.[Ah! yes…..]
People are concerned that they haven’t yet reaped the benefit of success. Sometimes failure is better than success. Look at the other side of failure. With failure you have still hope that you can succeed; but if you are successful you have nowhere to go, if you are still dissatisfied.
You may have climbed very fast but the climb would have led you to no place in particular. In fact, you might be stuck in a place where it makes no sense to you at all. You are totally disconnected from your inner being. This kind of success brings depression. Depression of success is worse than the depression of failure. People ask me, “what will meditation do to help achieve what I want?” They want to know whether it will give them what they want.
I say to them, may be not, meditation may not give you the power, the shakti, to make your dreams a reality, but will certainly give you the wisdom, the buddhi, to know that your entire reality is only a dream. Let this be clear.
Meditation creates a space for the inner being to flower. It creates peace amidst the chaos that rules your life. Meditation creates the space where you have neither answers nor questions. You will simply be aware. This awareness is precious. Where there is pure awareness, there is enlightenment. This is true freedom.

Be true to yourself, and your loved ones. If you are true to yourself, you are true to God – the supreme power.
For atheists, atleast yo are true to yourself!

Society defines the norms, but we define the society.
The inner self guides us about what is wrong and right – and urges us to the right things – and to correct as soon as we make a mistake.
The conscience never allows us to do wrong – if you go against your conscience, and lie to it, it will eat you up!
The whole point is about creating peace and happiness, and well-being!

This inner being, the inner intelligence, the inner energy guides us in our path.
Its the most powerful – it makes you the most powerful.

Vivekananda says: till inner intelligence is awakened no book will help you; once it is awakened you do not need any books.

Ah! totally agreed! 🙂
