The very purpose/essence of this invaluable human birth is to find one's true self, the eternal lifeforce within to become soul conscious.

Sense Of Self Is An Essential Skill Of Mind, by Paul Fleischman

FaceBook  On Sep 4, 2018 Sunil, Bangalore wrote:
 This is the fundamental difference between Buddhism and Hinduism.Absence and presence of a SOUL respectively.I believe in the existence of an eternal life force,the innermost and absolute self distinct from mind n body.All the Universal lives are but the manifestations of this singlemost ever vibrating-pulseting consciousness.The whole-sole purpose in the complex gamut of this human birth is to find this self and become soul conscious.This Freedom or Nirvana is realised by many of our Saints,Sages,Rishis.I am also a student on this long path and the associated honest Sadhana sincerely.

Soul the Life force is permanently alive beautiful consciously.The worldly life's failures-successes, ups-downs and pleasures-pains hardly make any difference to this eternal divine experiential reality.This unflinching faith-belief with an earnest longing is the key with honest responsible efforts,persistence and patience.Going thru this process to be always held & serve the basic purpose of human birth. 
 

Seven Stages Of The Ego, by Rumi, as told by Elif Shafak

 Nafs(Self) an Arabic word in Quran.
I practice Ramana Maharishi's preaching"Who Am I? I,the biggest stumbling block in spiritual progress relates to the worldly-physical-mortal body.Whearas the eternal Soul inside is only pure consciousness the all pervading Omni present life force.Brahmo Hum Brahmo Hum Brahm Swaroopohum.Nityo hum-Shudho Hum-Budho Hum-Mukto hum.Soul overcoming self is a continuous spiritual quest.Kabir said the path is so narrow that the two cannot reside together. Either it is HE or I. May be I am at a stage dispelling I and adopting HE? In the process the gradual slow Opening of The Third Eye-Tenth Door helps to understand the report card.

FaceBook  On Mar 19, 2018 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

Charity begins @home.The world was-is-will be good always.Thus it is surviving. No need to criticize, find fault and be unhappy.Just look within to connect with your peaceful, most powerful and pure soul. Doors to the untapped abundant perennial & potential source of energy-the life force will be slowly opened."Shivohum Shivohum Shiva Swaroopaha hum".This applies to every soul uniformly connecting everybody with anybody.

Do A Nice Thing For Your Future Self, by Elizabeth Gilbert

FaceBook  On Mar 5, 2018 Sunil, Bangalore wrote:

Impermanence is the only permanence.Every body-cell and every moment is constantly changing.What is today is not tomorrow.Love yourself intimately in the present first to love the other future you including all third party others. 
Charity begins at home.Deep meditation and conscious self inquiry is the best example of a personal story. As you find yourself and become peaceful,purer,powerful...... U R equanimous full of love/affection,sympathy/empathy, generosity/gratitude not only for your own-self but also for the world/universe.Nicest thing to do is to connect with your inner-net everyday & moment for mutual happiness and harmony.

Love is existence and creation..Loveless there is no life.Love reinstates hope and reassures all is well with the world with so much of its drawbacks and weaknesses.The life force eternal SOUL is nothing but manifested love.

Where We Are Is Our Temple, by Jack Kornfield

"Death has not taken birth and Life never dies".Such total eternality of self consciousness (Atman) is in fact that Temple & God really we are longing for and nothing else. I have found this earnest search is the key to the practical spirituality.You are in everybody and everybody is in you made possible by an undivided expanded heart.This is only and simply the love,compassion, sympathy & empathy connecting all in a single worldwide web. 

 

The Messiah Is One Of Us , by Megan McKenna

FaceBook  On Nov 28, 2017 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

By Nature innately & inner-netly from origin each human soul is a bundle of divine positivity without exception.This is exactly the eternal search & spirituality we all practice. One who realizes it is the Master/Messiah. Everybody of us is thus a potential Master with such a firm belief-faith.The moment this happens the world becomes full of life,worship,love, grace,passion, devotion,alive & vibrant. The very outlook & perception changes to Change everybody-everything-everywhere for a fulfilling life. We get connected in a single worldwide web with compassion,sympathy & empathy. Still as an ardent student, I see Sant Kabir had that profoundness in the most down to earth style.Belief-Behaviour-Business can help deliver the promised land.

 

The Sun Is The Perfect Example, by Vinoba Bhave

FaceBook  On Nov 15, 2017 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

I relate Sun to the human Soul as Sunny. It is the eternal Light and the mystic Sound of our being.Our being is inside,innate & an inner-net. Its a natural agent ever shining illumination  and glowing  brightness.It energizes and stimulates the real sight of "Who Am I" enlightening the whole thing clear and visible to the third eye effortlessly. Personally I  surrender, submerge into  this original source eliminating the duality. The reality dawns. "Shivohum Shivohum ShivSwaroopohum.Nityohum-Shudhohum-Budhohum-Muktohum. ChidAnand roopah". Its neutral joy-Love- affection-compassion, sympathy & empathy for every one-every time-every where-everything.

Our roots is the soul,the eternal life force full of peace,purity,power ,love & harmony. Just go internal to realize all this and get it hearing the melodious music  inside.

To Know Your Mind, Pay Close Attention To It, by Sam Harris

FaceBook  On Aug 8, 2017 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

I relate: Adopt thoughtlessness & practice mindfulness. Impermanence is the only permeance. Thoughts are bodily-connected with self while consciousness is just soul without any self.Kabir said the path to God(soul) is so narrow that only one can exist either I or HE.Meditation on such mindset and "AMAR ATMA HAI MARANSHEEL KAYA, SABHI PRANIYO KE HAI BHITAR JO SAMAYA" helps indeed.

You hear more with less noise.Pineapple stands tall,wears a crown & is sweet inside.Now is unspoken inner balance with silent harmony.Right-away is disturbed unequilibrium.

Taking a Stand, by Lynne Twist

FaceBook  On Aug 30, 2016 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:
Taking a stand means You believe in your beliefs, in your innate soul,in your love for what you do.Holistic child welfare in India is possible by judiciously deploying what we already have in terms of resources($ 35 billion per annum) and the humane power(10 Million).Count your blessings.There is enough to achieve the benchmarks to disrupt the system.Implementation and execution is a burning issue to be resolved with head,heart and hands.Manifest the latent Insaniyat/humanity to reap the dividends. World conspires for all spiritual realities and realizations.
Truth + Team + Trust + Transparency = Transformation are the practices encouraging this self discovery.
 

Accessing Desire As Loving Motivation, by Miki Kashtan

A different perspective.Such think talk between a mother & a child is a generational smartness.Organic/genuine desire is innate & intitutive and all the world conspires to make it happen may be intially with displasure but with sublime peace ultimately. Serve oneself by the Welfare of others is becoming a motivating desire. I want to now Care and share with head, heart and hands to awaken the latent love,sympathy and empathy. Let HIM please unify the mind ,body and soul to the final reality.

The Capacity for Successful Solitude, by Sherry Turkle

FaceBook  On Mar 9, 2016 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

 Solitude is good for me as it is a 'Dil Ki Baat', Dil Ka Dil Se and Dilaram ( Dil + Ram + Aaram).It connects head,heart and hands with the soul.This brings out a natural smile of happiness and peace while connecting with anybody to create a mutual bond.Every soul is just abundance of purity,power,joy and love.Meditating on the innate,ever present qualities of the soul- the very life force  may prove quite helpful to develop our own inner self on  a solid sound footing.

 The innate,intuitive and instinctive feeling of oneness with all living beings is demanding love.Its simply the manifestation of the existing nature of our very life force.The original quality of soul.Rarely when I happen to be one with my own self,I experience this love.

Time is a Season, by David Whyte

FaceBook  On Nov 16, 2015 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

 Time is also the Age. Every age is a different season in itself. Child- Youth- Adult- Old age. Each stage in the life has its own flavors -  happy appointments - sad disappointments but the life force(soul) remaining the same in each time. The point of time during this journey when one understands this truth,is the time(age) of reckoning- revelation. Different for different persons.Fortunate/Divine are those to have this as early as possible. Then one can strive to be timeless/agenda less. Follow Kabir who said"Lere Nam Lere Nam,Nam Se tire Re Bhai. Minakh Janam  Fir Na Mile". " Yugan Yugan Hum Yogi, Awadhoota(wanderer)". "Apni Madhi Me,Khelu Sahaj Swa-ichha". "Hum Hi Sidha Samadhi Hum hai".

 

Organic Gift, by Parker Palmer

FaceBook  On Nov 10, 2015 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:
Khalil Gibran said "In truth,it is life that gives into life while the giver is just a witness.It is when you give of yourself that you truly give".Gifting is for our own happiness and mutual love. When to be happy & full of love can only be organic,how can giving be inorganic ?Thus any burnout is totally ruled out.The thought of Kabir is "Hum Sub Mai,Sub Hai Hum Mai". It is matter of Dil Ka Dil se,Dilwale and Dilaram(Dil+ Aaram). The original organic nature of our latent life force is fundamentally love and compassion.Needless to say anything contrary to all this is far away from giving.Happy Diwali.
 

Lessening the Power of Negative Emotions, by The Dalai Lama

FaceBook  On Oct 20, 2015 Sunil, Bangalore wrote:

My strategy is to cultivate the root(soul)for the blossoming tree. The faith & the firm conviction is in the fact that all human souls are  divine, full of Love,power,compassion,joy, friendship & harmony without any exception.   Very careful to anything contrary happening/arising ,go back to the above Universal Truth and control the mind. Yes difficult but not impossible if one is serious.Pesistance and perseverance pays.Meditate with open eyes on the visualization of this  reality. Lastly surrender to HIM i.e. your own true self earnestly.

Man's Most Important Mistake, by G. I. Gurdjieff

FaceBook  On Jun 30, 2015 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

 It is either I or the Whole. The multiple I has to merge  with the whole to become one.This removes the chaos,corruption(wishes,desires,anger.................) and complexity within and facilitates the manifestation of the soul, the real I full of  peace, love & strength. When this becomes natural & normal one finds oneself correcting the most important mistake.  

 

A Bigger Container, by Charlotte Joko Beck

Where there is I,he is not there and where is he I am not there.Its a narrow passage only for the one out of the two but the container is big.I can do all my daily routine resting the soul always on him. The soul manifestation is now happening steadily while doing an e-welfare platform for the bottom of the pyramid. Experiencing the reclaiming of my human by the welfare of the underserved for my container to be really & progressively large.  But be aware it's a very slippery and consciously cautious path balancing the act to make a bigger container. 

 

Love is the Source of Fearlessness, by Margaret Wheatley

FaceBook  On Jun 2, 2015 Sunil, Bangalore wrote:

Soul consciousness is fearlessness.Human soul is full of love,peace,strength & power which catalyzes fearlessness. Manifesting these latent qualities of soul thru meditation and practice in our daily lives is the key. Setting up schools for the children of migrant workers in the pathetic labour camps against all odds was my personal experience.This love for every child is empowering me to develop a digital gap minder platform for all the K-12 schools in the country. If we can really connect with our souls, we are out of the fear prison. Fear is lack of love and that is the awareness .

Eulogy Versus Resume Virtues, by David Brooks

FaceBook  On May 26, 2015 Sunil,Bangalore wrote:

To me Eulogy and Resume is a question of what you do between the short gap of life & death.Its all about soul connections made during this gap.Personally I can tell you this happens only when you manifest the latent harmony,friendship, forgiveness & the eternal love..................bypassing everything else, all the negativity.What ultimately matters is human relationships and not right or wrong. Cultivating this habit as our culture , daily routine  with mindfulness consciously is indeed  experiencing the beauty, fulfillment and amazement of life.

 

Radical Amazement, by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

The complete cycle of creation & destruction ,birth & death is radical amazement.What we do between this gap of life & death is human.Relaxing in the garden sit out witnessing the plants flowering right from the exotic heliconias, orchids to simple bougainvillea & so on........Same with fruit trees-- sweet guavas,juicy mangoes........so on is demystifying the divine. The rimzim rains,the sun and then the colourful rainbow is understanding the heavens.Livng positively in the present  to manifest the qualities of the soul- love,compassion,friendship,forgiveness......helps remain alive to the wonder.
