Visiting the self

It happens very very rare that we visit ourself, isn't it? Over a long journey of my self, I was always driving via choice-less-ness and I was not the decision maker, I was only following what I felt to do. When I was going through initial transition of my existence in the year of 1997, I was hungry for knowing myself, I was mad about self realization and enlightenment, and having that kind of burring desire paid a little, in my college time during 2001 to 2004, I have gone through experiences I had only imagined and read, and it was amazing and beautiful, but I was still empty. It was like thirst was thirsty, hunger was hungry, ocean was dry, more I explored, more madness I was getting.. and then something turned off. Today I am keen on building a company/business, I feel to realize the freedom, I must go through the attainment of it and I am sure that I will be able to realize that this is not what I wanted and my entire logic system would reset back and my path would re-instantiate.

But 100 degree Celsius is not the only reason to boil the water, water boils at each and every degree of change but it doesn't communicate, it manifest only at 100 degree. And every degree of change has exactly same importance as of 100 degree. Going through a masterpiece"If Truth Be Told, A Monk's Memoir", gifted by one of the mysterious person in my life "Naren", is another degree of change and this is transcendental, thanks a lot Naren for returning my mirror, which I had sort of lost in my way of foolishness, but now I'll try my best to keep the equilibrium.

Life is never a goal, it's just a journey... and our journey is from puppet to observer.

Body is an extension of mind


Body is an extension of mind, but only for those who have invented the mind. Mind is only invented through will, it's not something which is a brain. Mind is as of now sub-conscious power, but it has the ability to become conscious power. And watching the body with full conscious mind is an experience of growth, evolution of life. We all are hungry for that power, but we never invent it. In fact psychiatrist have accepted that there is no possibility of something beyond the body and brain, which is an ultimate misery... the loss of very possibility of evolution. Will is the answer and experience that there is something called mind and you'll realize that Body is just an extension of mind.


Understand the darkness


When you try to understand the darkness by closing your eyes, you won't be able to experience it. You'll definitely experience something, but it won't be darkness, it would be perception of incapability to perceive light which is a treason, a falsely... Darkness also exist, it's more like a umbrella cover, if you want to get wet entirely, you've to be naked, you've to really see it, the darkness. You've to experience how the nothingness imbibes you, envelopes you.

59, Cascading Meadows

  



When humanity start thinking that we are different than our surroundings, the nature; we create a clear separating line and that's where city lives. There is only one difference in village and city is village is a place people stay within nature and in city, we hijack the nature and throw her out of city. And then for few people it become obvious to create the mental space of village within a city, and people call it community, apartment, villas. But you can easily find the humans overruling over the nature in such crafted artificial villages. Cascading meadows is remarkably peculiar in all those definitions, the moment you cross the line, you feel like you belong to a village, the kind of roads, trees, soil, scent, air ..... it's just a village.

Cascading meadows is a village inside the city, Bangalore.



It's full of silver woods in a big array making visually beautiful as well as it gives a feeling of being over a small mountain, it's so lovely to walk on these paths.




The home starts not only at the #59, it starts right at the gate of cascading meadows. And the entire campus is nothing but the expansion of #59. Yes #59 is special for me because cascading meadows is one the finest space to eat, drink and sleep. Within cascading meadows #59 is the finest location to live. Yes I can only show my gratitude to provide me such opportunity to stay at #59, and yes #59 is my current house number within Cascading Meadows.





The home #59 is something really special and it's great architecture, well designed and created with love. The lawn, the plants, the flower, the banana tree, the Ashoka tree and the the balcony, the Hall, the exterior premise... everything is so good that it make you fall in love with the place.

When the morning starts walking with sunrise at our doorstep, there is a perfect place to ask the sun to give you a heat massage and as the sun walks through half the circle of home, it's behave like Sun is taking care of it, each and every moment, it keeps on looking the home, caresses it, kisses it.


And few evening, I've got the chance to look at the sun when it's saying bye bye, it looks so magnificent, it's so attractive, there is no word for it, it's like attaining peace. And best part of evening is, entire nature understand that its evening, the trees, the sky, the birds and the humans.



लोग दीवारों के बीच रहते हैं 
और शहर की दीवारें 
लोगों के बीच रहती है,

पहले लोग धरती पे रहते थे 
और अब लोगों ने धरती को 
आकाश पे रख दिया है,

मनुष्यता की प्यास,
धरती से आकाश 
और आकाश से धरती की तरफ 
दौड़ती रहती है,

कभी कभार 
ऐसा होता है की 
रहने के लिए 
क्षितिज पे घर बनाया जाता है, 

#५९, कैस्केडिंग मीडोज... 

और मैं सम्पूर्ण समर्पित हूँ 
की मुझे कुछ वक़्त 
यहाँ बिताने मिला है 
आभार ... 

Log deewaron ke beech rahte hain
aur shahar ki deewarein 
logon ke beech rahti hai,

Pahle log dharti pe rahte the
aur ab logon ne dharti ko
aakash pe rakh diya hai,

Manushyata ki pyas
dharti se aakash
aur aakash se dharti ki taraf
daudati rahti hai...

kabhi kabhar... 
aisa hota hai ki
rahne ke liye
kshitij pe ghar banaya jata hai,

#59, Cascading Meadows...

Aur main sampoorn samarpit hoon
ki mujhe kuchh vaqt 
yahan bitane ko mila hai
Aabhar...

Space to NoSpace




When we learn to know the space, we learn to know that there is no space. It's like, it exists in certain boundaries, it exists in the ignorance. The moment we come to know about it, which means we grow beyond space, it becomes irrelevant and we can say that there is nothing more than space, so there is no observer left to state there is space, because everything is space.
