We are responsible!



"When a person hits you once, it is his mistake, 
                         When the same person hits you twice, it is your mistake."
The Vedas
       We are responsible for our deeds, our actions, our perceptions, our negligences, our ignomicity and our sluggishness throughout our life. We must introspect and reintrospect anything which is put before us, not merely give it a glance and let it go at that. The dormancy which surrounds us from within has to be penetrated to get a first-hand knowledge about an action which may later turn into inaction, just because of the lack of our deliberation. We do, we perform small actions round the clock, but many a time, we prefer to keep our consciousness away, which costs us everything.
      Similar is the case of our behavior towards other persons, may be our parents, well-wishers, friends,etc. We behave the way we like, with them disregarding the dire consequences we may creep into. What we need is 24X7 consciousness and alertness in playing the role we have been assigned to on this world's stage (referring to Shakespeare's quote -'The world is a stage and all men are merely actors.'). We must visualise our way of presentation in front of the audience (single person, or more), lest we regret it later. Note, a stitch in time saves nine. We are required to present our thoughts in an unambiguous manner, lacking all types of vagueness.



Living without Reins

       "Freedom does not mean freedom alone, it means 
              freedom to limit our freedom."
       
                 - Krishna Chand Avatar
     We must remain tied. 'Tied' in the sense that we need to be aware about our limitations, our attachment to that beautiful piece of that wise hermit existing within us - 'conscience'. 'Tied' in our behavior towards fellow human-beings, our attitude towards the world as a whole. This is where the notion of 'reins' come forward. We prefer to live in the world without any system of checks-and-balance on ourselves. The problem arises here, when we do not conceive the meaning of freedom.
    According to Lincoln - "Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves." The misunderstanding which compels us to implicitly believe that freedom can be enjoyed by us, not taking into account of that of others, is extraneous. We ought to  feel the freedom we have lent to others while exercising ours. That is human virtue. Overlooking this concept does not make any sense.

Friction - from philosophical perspective

          Friction, as we apprehend from science, is the force which tends to resist the motion of moving objects usually but only a few times does it support an object to pursue its movement. For instance, it helps a body to accelerate upon application of force. From philosophical point of view, the analogous of friction is 'hurdles' and 'barriers' that come in our way during our journey to our goals. These hurdles, like friction, tend to stop our progress most of the time. But they have their contribution in our success, if we remain consistently determined throughout our pursuit. Such notion depends upon our belief. Considering 'friction' as hindrance, which has a strong demoralizing effect, we can't proceed any further. However we take it the other way, as a means of boosting our determination, as a test of our perseverance,  as a barometer of our willingness to stay focused, we could perceive its meaning.

Looking through a child’s eye

THE ONLY CELESTIAL PLACE ON THE WORLD HAS ITS DWELLING IN THE EYES OF A CHILD.
- Krishna Chand Avatar
      Full of appreciation, full of praises, full of curiosity, full of divinity and ignorance; assimilate the attributes of a child. Being devoid of knowledge, but laden with baskets of inquisitive questions, the soul and the conscience is free from blemish and blots. The carefree mind is so appreciable and praiseworthy: a thing every grown up yearns for. Nevertheless this taint-free mind of a child gets blackened with the passing time; pursuance of worldly realisation brings about everything. Guilt and innocence are the two contrasting traits. The perception of guilt starts building up in the mind of a grown-up, the more ‘aware’, and the innocence is stripped of.
       Imagine, glancing at the world metaphorically through the eyes of a child. A child appreciates the world in every sense. It admires the beauty of the environment, the nature and perhaps everything with gentleness, mellowness and cheer. Piousness and innocence govern their world. For God lies in their minds and souls.
