Life is neither fair ... nor unfair .....

Is Life Fair : Vaidyanathan makes me speak / LbnRaj

The way I am beginning to respond to the ideas of Vaidyanathan may seem funny, but the issue of getting a question to answer haunts me often.  Many a time we have lots of answers … but hardly get to face questions.  May be, questions are always there, as are the answers for all of us.  As most of you may agree I search for questions for which I seem to think I have answers.  The other way round, I seem to have many questions, I don't know whom to ask, where to ask and how to ask.  I think most of all of our lives in a day revolves around this dilemma.  Am I making any sense?

Now back to Speaking Tree, frankly speaking I subscribe to Times of India for reading Speaking Tree and Sacred Space of the Centre page of TOI … and then glance through other pages as and when I feel like.  Now , when I introspect myself …. I look forward for the best answers for the most difficult questions on existence from the  best of the thinkers / scholars.  At the same time I constantly think that I have lot of answers for these typical unthinkable questions.  May be I unconsciously look forward to see others  and read others who think alike and write alike.  May be others write before I pen.  At times I feel amazed at myself how close I am to best of scholars and their thinking.  This is human nature … we only understand what we know…. We can only appreciate what we like and know.  A thing, thought or feeling that is talked about deliberated by best of scholars however easy or tough it is, cannot go into heads if we don't know about it / that.  What I want to say is , every one of us know every ting … we only revisit our thinking when others speak, say, or lecture.  Hoe I make sense in what I am trying to say.  The thing that we cannot identify is neither meaningful nor meaningless.  We like sweet …. Because we know the taste of sweet before we had it for the first in our life.  Every thing is already known to every one by birth.
Now the question of Vaidyanathan, "Is life Fair or Unfair"…. This haunts every one so often … may be one does not stop seriously to give a thought to ones state of mind later on, on that moment.  Yes life is not perfect, I say this knowing what this perfectness means.  As a child as a high school boy I cam across my friends, classmates …. Copying in the examinations … I used to pity, them as I could not convince them.  More disappointing was that their parents, brothers, sisters used to be so organized to assist the boy / girl in copying.  Now when years passed by , the same boy or the girl gets admitted to best of professional courses / get best of jobs … I felt dejected, I was left confused.  Now again often some years I find the same boy / girl in the VIP positions (Sound both by wealth and qualifications and even knowledge) and lecturing on morals and on how bad it is to copy in the examinations.  May be they have forgotten what they did … may be they are more practical … may be they have repented … may be nothing of this sort…. AND MAY BE THIS IS THE NATURE'S WAY.  May be life is not Fair.  Vaidyanathan's  concluding words are eye openers …. "While life may seem unfair, if things changed as per every individual's desires and wishes, imagine the chaos and confusion that would result.  In a matter of few days, the world would come to the end.  The apparent unfairness that we see is indeed for continuity.

Yes, life is neither fair nor unfair, life is neither perfect nor imperfect.  Life is what it exists like.  Life exists without our consent … the way it is … and more real could be that life exists and continues in tune with laws of nature!  Search for questions for which you have answers … it is amazing … it is worth your time spent on it! Wonder! You will know that you have lots and lots of answers … if you know how to come closer to questions, …. Have an open mind …. Introspect …. Meditate … you will find a treasure of questions and answers within yourself !!!!!

We the Librarians need to operate from the source of our thoughts... trust me .... LbnRaj ;

Golden words of Lane Wagger (Source : Speaking Tree, Times of India, January 19, 2011):
January 19, 2011; Wednesday
  1. The mind is capable of the same settling (like a wave in the ocean) down, or transcending process. Waves of thought retire to the source of thought.
  2. The agitated, limited value of thought gains the unlimited status of being the silent depth of the ocean of consciousness.
  3. The mind is like a body of water : choppy on the surface, silent and stable at its depth.  When we experience only the noisy surface level of thinking, difficulties abound.
  4. The growth of inner silence is the basis of spiritual unfolding and material success.
  5. Consciousness is the prime mover of life.
  6. Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness.
  7. If you are anchored to the silent blissful state of consciousness, everything you do becomes joyful.
  8. According to Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, handle that one thing – consciousness – by which every thing else is handled.
"Just like any other individuals in society, we the librarians do fee insecure , un happy, stressful and anxiety ridden often at times. We are skeptical and worried over the illogical behaviour of our bosses and co-workers and subordinates. We feel proud of some of our colleagues for their good deeds, feel sorry for the irrational behaviour of some others. All is well …. when we work from the core of our consciousness. All is well when we work from the source of our thoughts…that is consciousness. We are heading steadfast to emerge as the much awaited and coveted title of a 'knowledge professional'. Wagger says, "Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness". Being Knowledge professional in this context is to be operating from the source of our thoughts, to be operating from  the silent blissful consciousness level. The day is not far when we slide and glide towards being recognized as a full-fledged librarian, a librarian who would be sought after by every one who has to do some thing to do with knowledge. Cheers". –

Chief Librarian, Asian School of Business Management, BBSR ;

I dont know how and why? I have developed this fascination for reading.  The speaking Tree and Sacred Space columns of Times of India for the last few years.  It has almost become an obsession to read thse just like I have my breakfast and dinner.  Hats Off to Times fo India for these columns on centre page.  The last night I had a peculiar dream.  One of my colleagues / friends proessional Acquintance (not so much known) drops into my library / office ...saying "thank you for the invite.... / I said ' oh it is my pleasure.... me, my friend said a colleague of my  mine get to the auditorium and get to the podium.  Instead of chairs there was a long streatching matress on wwhich we a ere resting .... relaxing.  That was a very light and relaxing moment f9or we three or rour we / were convrsing some things which I dont remember now.  I dont know whether we were relaxing... or almost e had ... ere lying .  There is a sleeping position.... The whole auduience infront of of us and wer were shispering...gossipping.  Suddenly my colleague asks me what time the program starts?  Then suddenly vwake up. oh is there a program/?  My God I forgot..... e need to arrange for it... oh my God the audience is already there in front of us and we really did not do anything.  How come the uests of honour did not arrive?  Then the dream shatters........... and I keep thinking on te dream..that went by.  How come dreams are at times so illogical..... disconnected and meanless.  Now this time of the day I have got to write on this when I incidentally happen tro read Jui Padegar on Aurobindo (TOI, the Speaking Tree 6-9-2010).  According to Aurobindo, "There are several realms of consciousness beyond the physical world we live in and that these planes of consciousness are in facct  and that these planes of consciousness are in fact the other worlds that are as real as we take our own world to be.  When one sleeps the subconscient mind is freed from the shackles of the mind that operates in the physical world, travelling across other those other worlds soaking in the experiences both good and bad..... that are needed for further consciousness evolution of the individual in the dream state.
I end this write up with the words of Marguerite Theophil, .... working with "What is means to seek meaning within the absurd, peace within chaos, light within darkness, joy within sufering without the need to deny the reality of absurdity, chaos darkness and sufering" (The Speaking Tree, Your faithfully with grace, Times of India, 01-10-2010).

The option is yours......

"The option is yours: Cultivate a generous disposition - forgive, forget and move on in life.  Life will never stagnate. We can nurture robust, loving and transparent relationships or choose to tarnish them with selfishness, malevolence and deceit". - Geetika Jain/The option is yours.-The speaking Tree.-Times of India.

"Inception and the Subconscious"

The write up by Jui Pagedar in Times of India (Speaking Tree - 06-09-2010) titled "Inception and the Subconscious" and is educative and seductive for all those who evince interest in what appears to be more illusionist and imaginary. Yes it is human tendency to believe only those things which one can see, feel and sense easily. But the fact remains ... that we have worlds connected to us in more intimate ways than we think. Yes these other worlds are as real or more real than the lives we have believed and seen. Hats off to Jui Pagedar and Scholars alike for contributing to Speaking Tree. Best wishes.
