No Birth No Death – The Liberation

Since we came to existence we are offered with a beautiful ROM – The read only memory. Every living being has ROM, may be limited for some and some with a large sized ROM. A dog has ROM which helps it for its survival. Same is the case with plants. The memory in the plant cells help them grow and live. But humans have an additional RAM – Random Access Memory. This RAM is really troubling the humans as its so contained it with random memories. Since the day a baby is born, it is filled with all kinds of memory, starting with its name, body, relations etc. The ROM, the baby has, is filled with what is required for its survival. But the RAM is the one that is cultured by the environment and the society. This RAM gets filled up to its almost maximum until the child is around 8 years. That’s where 95% of the brain develops. The rest is all just easily erasable ones or the ones that have the root to the memory stored in RAM.

The baby lives from the foundation of this belief to the memory both RAM & ROM. The whole of the childs life is built on the belief that his/her memory is true. In every incident that the child faces, it comes to its own conclusion and perceives the incident based on the vasanas in ROM & RAM. Its around 35 to 45 years that most of the humans get this existential crisis. They don’t understand whats life and where it goes to , they would have lived most of their life according to the perceptions. But at this time, they would have noticed something missing, something that’s just not right. That’s the time they start re-analysing their perceptions and RAM/ROM. But does that really solve the issue? There is a great secret here. Really… It may seem to be intellectual, but if one digs deep in their own experience they would really get the insight. Lets move on…

One starts purifying the memory box..How? They research into their own wrong perceptions and beliefs stored. And Why? Because they don’t feel good about whats going on in their life and so they seem to search for becoming a better human being, by digging the wrong belief..

Now comes the secret. Is it not worthy to see where from you are digging into the memory to set it right? The foundation where one stands and does this surgery, is from the belief of the memory!!! And that’s absurd! The whole of the memory is a derived one, the whole of the life is lived from the belief of a habitual memory! Life is not lived from the truth, and this truth, I swear, is not a memory, its not from the mind. The truth of your real self, is not the basis upon which life is lived. Life is lived upon the basis of the belief of the memory. Just search the other way. The whole of the body/mind mechanism is a belief as well in the memory. We are the one upon whom all these experiences of body/mind structure happen. Even to say body mind, is absurd. When we have a deeper look, our first hand experience of our body itself is sensations, perceptions and thoughts. We store whatever we like and dislike, we are seldom bothered about the neutral one. We aren’t cared for the neutral. And based on the likes and dislikes, the good and the bad, the life is moving. Our life is not based on the real true self, the real awareness the we truly are, until we get out of the whole belief. Getting above the belief of like/dislike/good/bad takes to a new dimension. The dimensioneless dimension. Our infinite eternal nature.

A dog, when it is in its natural consciousness, it uses its ROM. Say, when with an enlightened being, the consciousness of the dog even expands to the higher level and it takes a better birth or even gets the moksha. But why not the humans? Because of the belief towards the mind, one takes time to lose his egoself and get to understand or really devote to the enlightened being they are connected to. And the realized ones, as they live from the basis of awareness, (they are awareness, they are divine), out of love, they wait for the human mind to get matured enough to grasp the truth of their real self.

Its been so long number of years that a living creature was in the hamster wheel of the sufferings and happiness. It was really easy for the living creature to come to this state called human consciousness. But from this state , to really know their true divine state, rarely is one ready! They aren’t ready to lose their right and wrong. It is even not necessary to classify. Its just enough to know that the foundation on which the life is lived is a false belief. The rest all of the dualities withers off. When one is truly with an enlightened master, physically or mentally, theres a greates chance for one to throw away their falsity to return to their true nature. And offering that consciousness is the true gratitude to the Master/Guru/Divine. You then become the offering. Your mind is not the true offering to the divine. Devoting your everchanging mind is not an offering. Because the offering changes. Offering the belief of the mind to the feet of the sadguru/Master/Yourown self, will lead to salvation. Then one would understand and know for true that , there is no body no mind, its just the awareness that stays all through. Truly there is no body to die, there is no mind to die. Its only the belief that this body/mind is true has to be dropped. Then you would see yourself eternal and infinte. The guru/disciple, divine/human, you/me all merge as there would be no distance at all. That’s love, that’s beauty , that’s peace!!

FILL IN THE BLANK

In every step of life,be it from a single cell organism to the most advanced organism as human being, each and every being tries to fill in some or the other blank. Water fills the blank of thirst, colors fills the blank of eyes, experiences fill the blank of curiosity and so on… Even after filling up the blanks in the areas of finance, health and relationship, why is it that there is always a blank pending?? No, this is not the pending work thats always there. The blankness that i mention is the one that everybeing tries to fulfill oneself. Can this blank be filled? Why is this blankness?
An infant feels the void and search for the milk on its own. Actually, before even the search for milk, human body search for the breath, and even before that, a small cell searches for the womb to get the human body ! Fact is the search to fill up the blank with so many available choices makes us forget the void itself. More and more relationships, more and more of health oriented acts, more and more of finanace,more and kore of power,beauty and what not…But still the void remains…the whole game of life is this.. A spiritual seeker who turns inwards tries to fill the void from within and stops searching for external objects. A materialistic seeker fills it from external factors. In both cases ,the blank is still blank!!
The winning strategy in this game of life is to stop searching and see that you are the void that has everything already inside. Theres nothing outside that can fill you because there is really no ‘out’ or ‘in’. Theres is only One and One is all. Stop searching and you would see urself filling the blank with your true self and you will realise you are that void, the shunya,the nothingness that holds everything!!

A person can only take things personally

 

Is it really possible to not take things personally?
Who can really take things personally? Suppose a person takes his boss’ response personally,it means he has mixed up his professional personality & his relationship personality. One has many identities. From the identity of a male to the identity of a professional ,one takes up toooo many identities. A son/daughter, man/woman, student/teacher,father/mother/father,brother/sister,doctor/engineer, and so on and on and on. The glamour that is added to these identities are good,bad, beautiful, ugly, intelligent, lazy,weak,thin,stout and what not … At times ,the make up of intelligent is added to a doctor and when doctor faces an issue at his work,his glamour is lost. When a boss questions ones work, then the person who has identified with the glamour wears off. In order to maintain the state of balanced mind,one has to apply the correct make up to the identity accordingly…Having said these, it is very important to note that all are just identities and glamour added to it. All the glamours are meant to wear off. Not taking things personally is never going to end until the personality in the person dies. whatever personality that one has been subscribed to, it is ought to be hit by one way or the other. Thats nature. Because,by nature, you are not a limited personality. To know your true nature,your limited personality has to be hit.It has to be smashed. Truly ,when one looks back at the person in oneself, nobody could ever find the person. Theres no person to be smashed even. Yet, there is a belief that one is a person and has so and so personality. One has to look within. But he/she struggles to look in. It needs immense strength to looking and overcome the fears of losing himself/herself. It needs utmost courage and willingness to let go of ones personality to realise the unlimited nature of ones real self. Risk your limited personality to know your true nature. Then there would be no person to take things personally.
You are truly unlimited ! You are That !

DIVINE LIFE

 

“ Living with divine virtues is worshipping divine “

Knowing that you are divine is not the mandatory prerequisite to live like divine. However you understand the divine to be, live as though whatever you see is that divine. Start with your understanding of divine, live your own true understanding , Divine would definitely bring out situations to show it’s infinite nature to you.

Treat each and every object as divine and not a dead one… from a place where you keep your foot to the place where you look high, you will notice your body melting in love. Every step your foot take would be a soothing massage for the divine object under your foot, every object that you see with divine love,would smile back at you with love which only you both would know, every object that you touch would show itself completely when you offer a divine touch. You would notice a change in your body and mind when you live this way. There would be a slow but deep touch in whatever you do. Your seeing the divine in others would give the others an opportunity to see the divine in themselves. Be divine and help others be the same too..The whole universe would how to you … You will naturally be led to the heavenly abode of the ultimate when you live divine…True worship is living the divinely virtues.

Thank you to the eyes which have helped the divine in you read this!!

SUFFERING

Do you know why suffering is not alleviated through spirituality? In fact 99.9% of the aspirants doesn’t find solution to their suffering in any spiritual organisations/group, rather hold on to something in a belief that in future somewhere their problem would be solved. There are few groups/organisations where your petty issues are solved but only temporarily. The whole of your suffering doesn’t vanish. Have you ever asked why do only few , rarely a few,outpass the suffering while many not?
Its not the guru or the teacher or spiritual techniques that are the problem.The problem is in your approach.One approaches a guru,offers all his/her faith and belief to the guru in the name of devotion with an expectation that guru would solve the issues and that they can be irresponsible.And irresponsibility is the subtle part which one would find difficult to accept.Nevertheless, the approach was to alleviate the suffering…Many aspirants have only two questions,either Why am I suffering?, What is the solution for my suffering…these are the only two questions a spiritual aspirant has.
Rarely,very rarely, one in a million asks WHAT IS SUFFERING? This was the question of Buddha,this was the question of Jesus,this was the question of many enlightened masters..By asking what is suffering you get to know the truth behind suffering and you are released completely. A right master can release you from the whole hamster wheel of suffering and happiness, from this one question. If not,hurry up to another master who gives the truth.
Suffering is non-existent. That’s the truth and you need to contemplate and question on what’s suffering and how it’s non existent. Then you are liberated. But if your question is how do I get away from suffering ,then you already have a belief that you are suffering. With this belief you never get a right solution. You are bliss, divine doesn’t know suffering. Divine is bliss,it’s love ,its beauty,it’speace..You are divine.

Attention Parents

This post is solely to the attention of the parents. In most of the cases all around the world, Parents provide the best to their kids, with all the options available for them. Yet the greatest blunder that a parent can give to their children is to make the child feel guilty ,directly or indirectly, for the sacrifices that they have done. Its a usual scenario in the real world and we see it everyday ,atleast in India, where a parent say “ I brought you up in a way that i was not. My parents did not have the opportunity to provide me , but i sacrificed my likes and dislikes so that you could enjoy this”. And thats it! Job well done in plantingthe seed of existentialguilt in the child !!!

Parents please understand, No child will ever like to return back and say ‘ I am so thankful for you have burned yourself for me’. Atleast no kind hearted child would tell so. Instead the child would feel, ‘Oh no, My parents have suffered for me and i have to repay them by being obedient’. So the emotional business is started! Any business dealing with emotion is going to end in tragedy! No compromise in that! By being obedient, the child stamps his own creativity blooming up and filters that which comes up within him, and nurtures only those that would aid their parents wish! And the child is already in guilt and no child would bloom in guilt! Either the child becomes rebellious or the child supresses all his emotions and turns violent within. His violence would be an underground world and would start living with a mask in the society.

Parents, just think of giving a statement this way, “ My child, you know, i am in so much of love with you that your happiness was mine!”, this is just another way of telling the way you brought up your child, if you ever want to tell.. Personally idont even feel, theres a necessity to let the child know how and what you did for the child . The child watched you while growing and you telling or boasting about your style of parenting is no help for them! Just for parents who cant stop telling their style of parenting to the kids, please do care for what seed you plant in them. If you had planted the existential guilt in your child, its harder for the child to live at all. No parent who knows this would do it ,its just out of sheer ignorance that many parents plant the guilt. I take this platform to bring an awareness so that you and your child are released from the emotional business. If you even expect gratitude from your kids, they would be so, if you give them the gift of liberation!!

Happy Parenting!!

Care for your tornado thoughts

“Thoughts become things”
– Rhonda Byrne.

The above beautiful quote seemed to be so true when i saw my thoughts turning real. I would be hungry only to see all the restaurants on the way. I think of someone and just receive a call or message from them. I would be thinking something spiritual only to see all the hoardings and quotes which was synchronous to my inner world. And this is the same for all. After all we are all just made of the same stuff – the thoughts!

When I was adviced from parents and Sages to believe in myself, I had only believed my ego and was adding fuel to it, because I really didn’t know “myself” and was compelled only to believe my ego. “You can do it, if you can’t then who else can?” – waow, how well my ego was built. What I knew as me was just my ego. So ‘believe in yourself’ actually worked the other way round until I got the ego hit. Slowly, when emotional hurdles started churning me, I was already caught up in the thought tornado. How did the tornado at all happen?! I had actually created my clumsy world upon my thoughts. My perceptions and belief system formed my foundational thoughts. Based on the perceptions and belief systems that I have gathered, I had slowly been doing mix&match and dressed up myself with the programmed set of rights and wrongs by the society. Any change in the color of this costume, would put me down and so did I get caught up in the tornado.

We all have created a world wide Web of thoughts! One day or the other, www of thoughts are meant to conquer you and throw you into the gigantic tornado.

Here’s a real life experience of one of my acquaintance who was caught up in the thought tornado and attempted to kill himself. He is a well educated and a devoted middle aged man,who never accepts anybody question him. Even an average question of, “Are you OK”, by someone whom he considers superior would turn him violent and questions of “how can she ask me that, I might not be as wealthy as she is, but that doesn’t mean she can ask me all this. I am perfect in my own way”.These were his thoughts. The arrangement of his belief system on himself and others were not quite matching with the reality. So when faced with a financial crisis, he just wasn’t able to let go of his continuous questioning thought which made him prove unworthy. The non acceptance of his actual state and the belief that he doesn’t deserve this crisis, made him go mad and forget his own self and surroundings and family. It led him to attempt suicide, which further made the situation worse. This incident has sparked a light on me not to believe the mind at all. It would be calm at one minute, it might go extreme at another time, it would feel happy, sad, proud, low, high whatever, but that’s all temporary and just not worthy enough to forget yourself. This incident actually also aided in understanding how my mind made my outer world so complicated. My complex mind attracted all the complexities in outer world. When I am calm, outer world was calm. Outer world was just a reflection of my inner one. To my despair, I could only see all the motivational speeches and renowned speakers, asking us to stay positive, keep yourself high etcetc… What a BS. After all there are going to be opposites in life and one has to accept it, like it or not!!! And there is always going to be one or the other problem. It just depends on how we handle our thoughts on this problem. It’s upto us to keep someone/something in our dream of thoughts or just ignore them for good.

Whatever here’s how the tornado affected me. The desperate need to breathe when submerged in water was almost the same desperation for me to get released from my own mind. So in the process of removing myself from the mind, I could notice the fight is never going to end. Also if I fight with my thoughts I am just going to mess up the thought Web and create a prison out of myself. I stopped fighting. I actually was deploid of the energy to fight. The outer world had come to a still. I realised the way out of web is web itself. It just needs patience and observance. I realised these webs were built on thoughts. I accepted my thoughts without judgement or indulgement.

“You have no control of what thoughts would come to you, but it’s your freedom to pursue it in mind/action or to just let it pass without disturbance” . ~ Om swami

I let the above quote by Omswamiji to sink in. I was getting awareness little by little. One step at a time. Because nobody can help your mind other than you yourself. I got aware of the thoughts provoking all kinds of emotions and sometimes slipped into the emotions. But awareness cropped up again and refrained myself from pursuing my thoughts. I accepted my thoughts, I stopped blaming me, I didnt judge me. I allowed thoughts to come but stopped going behind it. There came a flush of thoughts which actually pushed me, pulled me. I was like a dirty cloth inside the washing machine being rolled and heated and squeezed and rotated as well. It’s actually difficult to go through this phase when everything around you, inside and outside is pulling you in all the directions. Your anger, your love, your expectations, your dream, your fear, your faith, your assumed truth all at once coming to a screeching halt and you lose the balance. There was a subtle element which was actually knowing and watching all these. I caught hold of it and watched to see that everything was settling.

Yet, mind is tricky and the mystery is, you would be tested for the same with many other situations until and unless you get yourself perfect. There’s no other go. Once your hand is in tigers mouth, it’s upto the tiger to open and release you. You struggling or fighting with it is just going to make your situation worse anyway. So was my game with the thoughts.

Now that there is understanding of the working and nature of thoughts, now starts the real game with it. Game with oneself may be adventurous, boring, it might cost you dear, it might be interesting too, but this life or later, one has to play with oneself.. The more you are prepared,the nearer the gateway to eternity. The game is worth it… Let’s just have some real courage and BELIEVE THE DIVINE IN YOU.

There are few groups/organisations where your petty issues are solved but only temporarily. The whole of your suffering doesn’t vanish.

Its not the guru or the teacher or spiritual techniques that are the problem.The problem is in your approach.One approaches a guru,offers all his/her faith and belief to the guru in the name of devotion with an expectation that guru would solve the issues and that they can be irresponsible.And irresponsibility is the subtle part which one would find difficult to accept.Nevertheless, the approach was to alleviate the suffering…Many aspirants have only two questions,either Why am I suffering?, What is the solution for my suffering…these are the only two questions a spiritual aspirant has.
Rarely,very rarely, one in a million asks WHAT IS SUFFERING? This was the question of Buddha,this was the question of Jesus,this was the question of many enlightened masters..By asking what is suffering you get to know the truth behind suffering and you are released completely. A right master can release you from the whole hamster wheel of suffering and happiness, from this one question. If not,hurry up to another master who gives the truth.
Suffering is non-existent. That’s the truth and you need to contemplate and question on what’s suffering and how it’s non existent. Then you are liberated. But if your question is how do I get away from suffering ,then you already have a belief that you are suffering. With this belief you never get a right solution. You are bliss, divine doesn’t know suffering. Divine is bliss,it’s love ,its beauty,it’speace..You are divine.

ACCEPTANCE ATTRACTS SURRENDER

Do you know why suffering is not alleviated through spirituality? In fact 99.9% of the aspirants doesn’t find solution to their suffering in any spiritual organisations/group, rather hold on to something in a belief that in future somewhere their problem would be solved. There are few groups/organisations where your petty issues are solved but only temporarily. The whole of your suffering doesn’t vanish. Have you ever asked why do only few , rarely a few,outpass the suffering while many not?
Its not the guru or the teacher or spiritual techniques that are the problem.The problem is in your approach.One approaches a guru,offers all his/her faith and belief to the guru in the name of devotion with an expectation that guru would solve the issues and that they can be irresponsible.And irresponsibility is the subtle part which one would find difficult to accept.Nevertheless, the approach was to alleviate the suffering…Many aspirants have only two questions,either Why am I suffering?, What is the solution for my suffering…these are the only two questions a spiritual aspirant has.
Rarely,very rarely, one in a million asks WHAT IS SUFFERING? This was the question of Buddha,this was the question of Jesus,this was the question of many enlightened masters..By asking what is suffering you get to know the truth behind suffering and you are released completely. A right master can release you from the whole hamster wheel of suffering and happiness, from this one question. If not,hurry up to another master who gives the truth.

Attention Parents

This post is solely to the attention of the parents. In most of the cases all around the world, Parents provide the best to their kids, with all the options available for them. Yet the greatest blunder that a parent can give to their children is to make the child feel guilty ,directly or indirectly, for the sacrifices that they have done. Its a usual scenario in the real world and we see it everyday ,atleast in India, where a parent say “ I brought you up in a way that i was not. My parents did not have the opportunity to provide me , but i sacrificed my likes and dislikes so that you could enjoy this”. And thats it! Job well done in plantingthe seed of existentialguilt in the child !!!

Parents please understand, No child will ever like to return back and say ‘ I am so thankful for you have burned yourself for me’. Atleast no kind hearted child would tell so. Instead the child would feel, ‘Oh no, My parents have suffered for me and i have to repay them by being obedient’. So the emotional business is started! Any business dealing with emotion is going to end in tragedy! No compromise in that! By being obedient, the child stamps his own creativity blooming up and filters that which comes up within him, and nurtures only those that would aid their parents wish! And the child is already in guilt and no child would bloom in guilt! Either the child becomes rebellious or the child supresses all his emotions and turns violent within. His violence would be an underground world and would start living with a mask in the society.

Parents, just think of giving a statement this way, “ My child, you know, i am in so much of love with you that your happiness was mine!”, this is just another way of telling the way you brought up your child, if you ever want to tell.. Personally idont even feel, theres a necessity to let the child know how and what you did for the child . The child watched you while growing and you telling or boasting about your style of parenting is no help for them! Just for parents who cant stop telling their style of parenting to the kids, please do care for what seed you plant in them. If you had planted the existential guilt in your child, its harder for the child to live at all. No parent who knows this would do it ,its just out of sheer ignorance that many parents plant the guilt. I take this platform to bring an awareness so that you and your child are released from the emotional business. If you even expect gratitude from your kids, they would be so, if you give them the gift of liberation!!

Happy Parenting!!

Care for your tornado thoughts

“Thoughts become things”
– Rhonda Byrne.

The above beautiful quote seemed to be so true when i saw my thoughts turning real. I would be hungry only to see all the restaurants on the way. I think of someone and just receive a call or message from them. I would be thinking something spiritual only to see all the hoardings and quotes which was synchronous to my inner world. And this is the same for all. After all we are all just made of the same stuff – the thoughts!

When I was adviced from parents and Sages to believe in myself, I had only believed my ego and was adding fuel to it, because I really didn’t know “myself” and was compelled only to believe my ego. “You can do it, if you can’t then who else can?” – waow, how well my ego was built. What I knew as me was just my ego. So ‘believe in yourself’ actually worked the other way round until I got the ego hit. Slowly, when emotional hurdles started churning me, I was already caught up in the thought tornado. How did the tornado at all happen?! I had actually created my clumsy world upon my thoughts. My perceptions and belief system formed my foundational thoughts. Based on the perceptions and belief systems that I have gathered, I had slowly been doing mix&match and dressed up myself with the programmed set of rights and wrongs by the society. Any change in the color of this costume, would put me down and so did I get caught up in the tornado.

We all have created a world wide Web of thoughts! One day or the other, www of thoughts are meant to conquer you and throw you into the gigantic tornado.

Here’s a real life experience of one of my acquaintance who was caught up in the thought tornado and attempted to kill himself. He is a well educated and a devoted middle aged man,who never accepts anybody question him. Even an average question of, “Are you OK”, by someone whom he considers superior would turn him violent and questions of “how can she ask me that, I might not be as wealthy as she is, but that doesn’t mean she can ask me all this. I am perfect in my own way”.These were his thoughts. The arrangement of his belief system on himself and others were not quite matching with the reality. So when faced with a financial crisis, he just wasn’t able to let go of his continuous questioning thought which made him prove unworthy. The non acceptance of his actual state and the belief that he doesn’t deserve this crisis, made him go mad and forget his own self and surroundings and family. It led him to attempt suicide, which further made the situation worse. This incident has sparked a light on me not to believe the mind at all. It would be calm at one minute, it might go extreme at another time, it would feel happy, sad, proud, low, high whatever, but that’s all temporary and just not worthy enough to forget yourself. This incident actually also aided in understanding how my mind made my outer world so complicated. My complex mind attracted all the complexities in outer world. When I am calm, outer world was calm. Outer world was just a reflection of my inner one. To my despair, I could only see all the motivational speeches and renowned speakers, asking us to stay positive, keep yourself high etcetc… What a BS. After all there are going to be opposites in life and one has to accept it, like it or not!!! And there is always going to be one or the other problem. It just depends on how we handle our thoughts on this problem. It’s upto us to keep someone/something in our dream of thoughts or just ignore them for good.

Whatever here’s how the tornado affected me. The desperate need to breathe when submerged in water was almost the same desperation for me to get released from my own mind. So in the process of removing myself from the mind, I could notice the fight is never going to end. Also if I fight with my thoughts I am just going to mess up the thought Web and create a prison out of myself. I stopped fighting. I actually was deploid of the energy to fight. The outer world had come to a still. I realised the way out of web is web itself. It just needs patience and observance. I realised these webs were built on thoughts. I accepted my thoughts without judgement or indulgement.

“You have no control of what thoughts would come to you, but it’s your freedom to pursue it in mind/action or to just let it pass without disturbance” . ~ Om swami

I let the above quote by Omswamiji to sink in. I was getting awareness little by little. One step at a time. Because nobody can help your mind other than you yourself. I got aware of the thoughts provoking all kinds of emotions and sometimes slipped into the emotions. But awareness cropped up again and refrained myself from pursuing my thoughts. I accepted my thoughts, I stopped blaming me, I didnt judge me. I allowed thoughts to come but stopped going behind it. There came a flush of thoughts which actually pushed me, pulled me. I was like a dirty cloth inside the washing machine being rolled and heated and squeezed and rotated as well. It’s actually difficult to go through this phase when everything around you, inside and outside is pulling you in all the directions. Your anger, your love, your expectations, your dream, your fear, your faith, your assumed truth all at once coming to a screeching halt and you lose the balance. There was a subtle element which was actually knowing and watching all these. I caught hold of it and watched to see that everything was settling.

Yet, mind is tricky and the mystery is, you would be tested for the same with many other situations until and unless you get yourself perfect. There’s no other go. Once your hand is in tigers mouth, it’s upto the tiger to open and release you. You struggling or fighting with it is just going to make your situation worse anyway. So was my game with the thoughts.

Now that there is understanding of the working and nature of thoughts, now starts the real game with it. Game with oneself may be adventurous, boring, it might cost you dear, it might be interesting too, but this life or later, one has to play with oneself.. The more you are prepared,the nearer the gateway to eternity. The game is worth it… Let’s just have some real courage and BELIEVE THE DIVINE IN YOU.
