Ancient India

A legacy the world is awakening to

There is an old saying that the truth will set you free yet in today’s modern corporate controlled world, truth has become a commodity determined by someone else for political and economic gain.

While some people invest a great deal of effort into determining the truth of what someone in the modern world may have or may not have said or done, the truth of our past is more important because it shapes who we are today.

It is abundantly clear that we reap as we sow or to express it more crudely, he who lives by the sword generally dies by the sword. The ancient wisdom originating in India advises that to

Life is Big

Experiencing the unthinkable and charting your course

Life is a big project that by fussing about small things and wasting time in big ones we miss out on the real joy and potential of our lives. It is wiser to consider human life to be finite, limited and very short as time flies, and before it flies away, capture few good moments of life that is free of stains, biases and foolish ideas imposed by some obscure theory, book or idea. Do not waste away your precious life in someone else’ wars and battles that wont contribute any thing to our life.

Grand delusions

What we know and what we believe are two entirely things. We know the sky is blue and the grass is green because we have direct experience and because we have direct experience, there is no need to believe because we know.

During the middle ages, sometimes a family would obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could bring home the bacon and to celebrate, they would cut off a little to share with guests and would all sit around and ‘chew the fat’.

Life Path

Anything is one of a million paths

Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you fell you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free from fear or ambition. I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think
