I am not evil

I am not evil

Despite what I might have done in past, I assure you I’m not an evil man. An evil man would enjoy doing these things. I don’t . It was just something that my sensibilities demand. My driving belief is in respect. Respecting yourself and others is critical. I will respect you until you do something to lose it, at which point I will just walk away. I will never darken your doorway again. I think everyone has a duty to…

So, off you go.

So, off you go.

You went away. Today I signed on a piece of paper that broke the link that I had with you. Perhaps it was already broken. The signature was the last ritual. I almost broke into tears as I put pen to the paper. But alas, I couldn’t. And I could see that you were happy. Happy to be promoted. Happy to succeed. Your ambition fuels you. If your ambitions are not fulfilled, you feel sense of loss. And, yet you…

Glutton for Punishment

Glutton for Punishment

I have always loved you. Loved you with deepest of feelings, without any expectations. So much so, that I haven’t even burdened you with that knowledge. And you’ve always pushed back. Always retaliated. And why? Because of reasons that cannot be ascribed to me. I have always born your reactions thinking that it’s your pain that’s coming to forth, but it was never like that. Your reaction was also a cold manipulation that I couldn’t understand at that time. Slowly,…

They will question everything that you had carefully crafted, created and collected. They will destroy every idea, ideology, thought you held dear. You feel like floating on a wooden board over an endless choppy sea, smashed by storms of unpredictable tomorrows. You will have no ground under your feet. No land in sight. At this very moment…

Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect

In the endless chain of cause and effect – called life, it is difficult to understand what is the cause and what is the effect. While searching for solutions to our problems, we are often caught in this quagmire of cause and effect with no visible or ready solutions. Good Intentions don’t count. The process doesn’t matter.

The Goal

The Goal

The Gita insists on unity of the life of spirit which cannot be resolved into philosophic wisdom, devoted love or strenuous action. Work, knowledge and devotion are complimentary both when we seek the goal and after we attain it. We do not proceed on the same lines but that which we seek is same. Anyone who attains the goal is released from divided loyalties and actions. His body, mind and spirit, the ‘conscious, the pre-conscious and unconscious, to use Freud’s…

Every Deed

Every Deed

Every deed, whether good or bad, produces it’s natural effect and involved embodiment in world and is obstacle to liberation. Every deed confirms egoism and separateness of doer, and sets in motion new series of effects. Gahan karmano gatih. It’s not possible to abstain from work or action. Nature is ever at work and we are deluded if we think that process can be held up. Nor is cessation from action desirable. Inertia is not freedom. The binding quality of…
