Building a Civilisation

And ensuring our survival as a species

Our current civilisation is on the verge of extinction as modern governments serve money, not the people they are sworn to protect.

If you want to build the civilization of a nation, there are 4 ways:

1. Uphold its family structure 2. Uphold its education traditions 3. Uphold its role models and raise its reference points 4. Preserve nature

To uphold the family: honour the role of Mother as a culture-carrier and home-maker. To uphold the education: honour Teachers, and raise their place in society so that the seekers love and respect them. To uphold the role models: honour the Sages and Seers, the Poets, the Scientists and Scholars, esteem their opinion, listens

The future is in our hands

I invite you to play this short video to your right in which Neil deGrasse Tyson argues the case of science and our collective knowledge about what works as a means for our decision-making.

We can use this rational scientific approach to ask whether peace is better than war or whether we should have greater social equity or to continue shaping the world based on sociological and economic systems that are failing.

Can take his dialogue further and ask what is the meaning of life?

For many, life has no meaning at all and as individuals we have absolutely no responsibility and no need of any morality. For others life has become a quest

Japanese Wisdom

Transcending space and time

Japan has a rich past and in the temples today one see the clear influence from ancient India. The Japanese like some other cultures have absorbed Hindu wisdom and made it their own giving it a unique flavour and form of expression.

If a problem can be solved, then it’s not worth worrying about it. If it can’t be solved, then it’s useless to worry about it. Having taken the time to think, venture to act. Once you’ve done so, stop thinking. Do not hold back that which is departing; do not chase away that which is arriving. Fast means going slowly without interruption. It is better to be the enemy of a good person than

Substitutes for Love

And human needs

Radhe Krishna are collectively known within Hinduism as the combination of the feminine and masculine aspects of God representing the loving ideal or peak of human possibility.

Even though we think we love someone and even though we fall in love to a degree that we experience an emotional euphoria and sense of well-being, this is not really what love is.

Love is a state of pleasantness within an individual and between people, it is a state of being and not an action. It is one a of life to become love and in doing so you become a very pleasant person who people want to be with.

However we live in a world where love

Life's Journey

Reflections

Tucked away in our subconscious is an idyllic vision. We see ourselves on a long trip that spans the continent. We are travelling by train. Out the windows we drink in the passing scene of cars on nearby highways, of children waving at a crossing, of cattle grazing on a distant hillside, of row upon row of corn and wheat, of flatlands and valleys, of city skylines and village halls.

But uppermost in our minds is the final destination. On a certain day at a certain hour we will pull into the station. Bands will be playing and flags waving. Once we get there so many wonderful dreams will come true and pieces of our lives will fit together

Tollerance

The most lovable quality any human being can possess is tolerance –

It is the vision than enables one to see things from another’s viewpoint –

It is the generosity that concedes to others the right to their own opinion

And their own peculiarities –

It is the bigness that enables us to let people be happy in their own way

instead of our way.

Just for today – I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whoJust for today – I will try to live through this day only and not tackle my whole life

The Indispensable Man

Sometime when you’re feeling important,

Sometime when your ego’s in bloom,

Sometime when you take it for granted

You’re the best qualified in the room,

Sometime when you feel that your going

Would leave an unfillable hole,

Just follow this simple instruction,

And see how it humbles your soul!

Take a bucket and fill it with water,

Dip your hand in it up to the wrist,

Is the measure of how you’ll be missed,

You may stir up the water galore,

But stop and you’ll find in a moment,

That it looks much the same as before.

The moral of this quaint example,

Is to do just the best that you can,

Be proud of yourself and remember,

There is

Humour

Resonance

Inspiration

Cells caught in the same field of resonance dance to the same music

“According to studies, when we think creatively or feel peace and love, such emotions generate a coherent electromagnetic field, which is broadcast to the rest of your body.

It also creates a field of resonance where body cells lock in with each other. Each cell knows what the others are doing effectively expressing their uniqueness.

Many emotions cause a disruption of the electromagnetic field in the heart, but those most precisely documented are anger and hostility. Once this synchronization is disrupted, your body starts to behave in a fragmented manner. The immune system gets suppressed, which leads to other problems, such as increased susceptibility to
