A Greed Gobbles Green Up With Gusto

Green is almighty’s pleasant paint on earth. It is mother earth’s best blessing. It preserves the subtle pran (life) energy with motherly warmth, serves the whole creation with an utmost ardour. The best image of almighty the green is. The whole aphorism of pranic (Vital life force) energy is green’s finest gift bestowed upon us. Green is an eternal truth; green is God visible in bare eye. Worshiping green is our pious responsibility.
Practice of truth, tolerance, universal brotherhood etc all goes well with the green. The real inner green can only contain the outer green. Failing to see the green within thus can never be a success in making external world a peace.

When green is mind, the society will get its best participant, democracy will be best realised and socialism will be a conscience. What else we need? Today we are in limbo with a critical concern of growing corruption. But it’s not a big problem at all. We have made it a habit and thus become a usual practice. A simple and clear understanding on it is enough that corruption can never benefit anybody even who is practising it. It is proven. A mere policy has less to do with it. It fails to reach to the intended point which is purely internal and wander around like a vagabond. We have seen despite policies the evil is looming recklessly.  
Sometimes excessive exercise of policy throws the fair section of society in some unwanted inconvenience. An uncontrolled desire is the key cause of corruption. So a core green effort can do huge to blot out the transgression.   
When green is education, the highest we can reap out is in terms of having a finest soil for civilisation. The Great poet Rabindranath Tagore said, “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes our life in harmony with all existence”. Yes the highest education brings the best harmony of participation and tunes the rhythm of social evolution in a generous way. Education can never be a subject of policy priority. It is our birthright.  The highest monk of our country Swami Vivekananda rightly said, it is manifestation of perfection already in men. Sometimes we try to mend it with new set of propositions to fit the dire need of market economy. And at the end it technically leads us to the trail of high productivity but put rare consent on the life force energy and conscience as well. The tall order of trade keeps us busy in money making. But the green food for thought can never be neglected.
When green is freedom, then freedom become an absolute attitude. It cannot be ensured by anybody. It is already within us. No crisis can malign its essence. During crisis a feeling of being dejected undermines the freedom. Freedom remains but the feeling of dejection apparently puts it away. Freedom is the key conscience of the cosmos. To preserve it with a grace of green is subject to a meditative motive. The pure outer world resonates with the pure inner world. It is a sole green rule of life. The demon of greed consumes all our pure (green) with gusto at once.                                       

Musings of a Misty Mind

Why do I exist in the world? The supreme God has created me; still allow me to stay here. But what is the purpose behind my existence and stay on earth? A misty aspect often lands in my mind. The moment it knocks, the mind starts to travel ditheringly either or become a mist itself. Every single day I am passing by is merely a routine work of daily activity which largely being prioritised by the basic wants of livelihood. Not more than that. Mind among its millions of sojourns for a day absolutely gets no time to think about - why do I exist in the world?
I don’t feel shy at all to say when I ascribe the world as mundane that’s a clean hypocrisy. A real embodiment of spirit of the thought is subject of an intense musing and a deep understanding of the key philosophy of life. To be a success in imbibing it well needs an honest practice of belief. A misty mind often fails to bother belief. It keeps itself hallucinated with a dump of thought uncalled for.

All religious scriptures have strongly ascertained the miraculous intervention of almighty God in every sphere of his creations. The supreme power is controlling the universe. I am not an exception. Only this much belief is enough per se. But the misty mind with its vacillating nature travel in between belief and reality. Its tireless journey at the end makes us dull. A roaming thought without tuning of an insight is insane.
When we stick to reality only in milieu of worldly reasons then any small shock on expectations leave us in lurch. On ground of belief which fully survives on some considerations the chance of getting dejected is high. So both the extremes are critically unreachable. Apparently both need each other to be validated. Here is conflict. Which one among ‘belief for reality’ or ‘reality for belief’ to be taken in consideration to give a befitting reply to the misty mind? All religious say are firmly ready with the solution. The practice of belief is obligatory to understand the reality is an affirmed conclusion to the conflict.
In the stalled phase of economy I am surviving with a lower remuneration. So here what will be my belief pattern? I will have to correct it at any cost, will it be my belief? Or I am happy with this crisis. I am blessed.
For the sake of discussion if I consider the last consideration and remain idle it does not sound good coz God helps those who help themselves. From the standpoint of the second consideration if I remain worried about the situation and exerts my toils to make it better may be conflicting to God’s wish. Like, it may be so that the almighty wants me to pass through this turbulence to learn a bigger aspect of life. Now my misty mind again starts its monkey like movement.  Little before, I took a break from writing this article. Meanwhile my misty mind has raised another question. Is my life for understanding the dichotomy between belief and reality? Is my existence for decoding this dichotomy?
When I am not a misty mind then all queries start to blot out and the absolute I with its all-pervading nature come close to close and heal all wounds with peace which is beyond the dichotomy of ‘belief and reality’.
