Happy New Year

As we all gear,

To embrace another year,

May our minds be without fear,

With the message ringing loud and clear,

That we are what we are,

And our life too is as we are.

To change all that is 'without'

We have to go within, and live 'inside-out'...

Thus even when we are down, are 'out' never,

Because the mind is without fear.

So may your faces light with smiles ear-to-ear...

Not only this year...

But year after year...

Wishing you all a very peaceful New Year.

Each thing is best in its place

Each thing is best, truly, in its place. This saying of yore carries one of the core messages and the essence of life in a unique way—just as each and everything, every moment, every being in life is unique. Each one (thing) is thus the best that could be there, at that moment, at that place.

And it indeed stands to be hailed as an universal truth; while failing to understand and thus rejecting it, carries the pathogen of discord, whereby all that is different is deemed as an act of defiance (a being, being defiant) to all that one stands for—being and doing. Thus, we create a diseased life—individual, as well as collective; and societies, teeming with technological advancements are found deficient in the understanding of the technology that life is, with its own logic. Hence, the dim situation, reflecting with great intensity the ‘stand’—of one and many and at times, one too many—which stands on an understanding which requires much light.

None can replace any one…as all is…and all are unique.

How one is led to, what one is, is never known. And that is why, when one is, the elation knows bounds none. 



It all happens because what is obvious to all might not to be some one. So it happens that it happened with me...and thanks to a friend of mine, who affirmed that what is revealed to me, is already known. Nonetheless, revelations are always welcome...and hence this one too is being shared here. No more suspense...



It is about 'Dhanteras', celebrated before Diwali, when ritualistically goodies (could be anything, many things--but not nothing!) are bought. In fact it is deemed as the 'time to shop', hopping shops! As I read (on Facebook) her wishing all "A Happy Dhanteras", the word Dhanteras struck me with the ‘Dhan’ (wealth) of an insight...and so I asked her, "Does Dhanteras stand for 'dhan tera aas'?", which means “Wealth you are hoped and wished for”. And she affirmed.



At times it felt a bit queer that to invite money into the lives, people spend money.



But now when philosophically looked at, it is realized that we draw into lives what we give, what we stand for. Life moves on the principles of natural reciprocity. When we give out love we create an ambiance of love...when we spew hatred, hatred is what we generate and get. 



So this could be the principle behind Dhanteras too.



Though again, what is the real ‘Dhan’, varies for one and all. I am thankful to Dhanteras and to my friend whose wishes led me to this ‘Dhan’ of Dhanteras...and corroborated the same...and to the moment which led me to it...and of course I am grateful for the insight....



Had it not been for Dhanteras, 'this' ‘Dhan’ I would have remained oblivious of. 



"Happy Dhanteras" to all...

Intent and Critical Mass

The correlation between intent and critical mass is long proven as it is the intent when reaches a level, becomes the critical mass for that which is intended. At the same time it has been also noted that this critical mass is a very small percentage, in complete disparity with the magnitude of that which is effected.

Thus the article, ‘Waiting To Pick Up A Fight’, by Sadhuguru, The Speaking Tree, TOI, dt. 26/09/12, led to the attainment of the critical mass to manifest that which is being shared now, giving it the final push for its materialization thus. I am thankful to him for the same and the TOI as well.

His article serves as the catalyst because it resonates with a long-standing experience and realization that only a very small fraction, of harbingers of evil, topples the good intents of the majority. Thus the 2-3% becomes significant relegating the rest 97-98%.

Why is it that the force of negativity is more powerful than the positive force? When looked at from the angle of the absolute it is very easy to explain, that even in the upheaval lies the next surge for the natural, evolution, and thus they are evolutionary drivers. Which thus is the same statement expressed in a different manner: that everything happens for the best.

Yet the why still eludes. He has stated that good intents takes into cognizance the collective transformation, while actual positive impact, and a positive consequence, can be had through collective transformation but, operating from the level of each individual. Each individual has to transform one’s own self. That is the sole duty, and the power of being the change does the rest. So, instead of carrying out the good intent outside, that has to be implemented inside first. And in fact this is how life can be lived fully—inside-out.

It is we and only we, collectively, who are the cause of all that is caused, because it is a collective life that we are leading—through the individual fulfillment of goals and desires. When this goal becomes aligned with the purpose of life—realizing and real-izing who we are—the en masse individual transformation would manifest as peace and bliss all around. No cause is outside of us, as we are fully responsible for all that is happening…even if we think we are not even remotely associated with it, nothing is remote from us.

We are intrinsically connected. When one takes a moment off from the thoughts and ‘thinks’ of those times when one’s thoughts did manifest, one would be amazed as to how thoughts indeed are creative. We know not consciously how this happens but it happens that is for sure. Presuppositions are projected and manifested and then we blame others. Yet who places those presuppositions and doubts in the conveyor belt of creation? A moment spared to ponder would remove one from wondering how ‘this’ could happen. Like it or not, all that we see are our own creation—though yes, most of the times unbeknownst to us.

Thus, the negative forces, 2-3%, what are they if not our very own projections? If one could perceive it in a manner so as to ignore the mathematical logic, the traces of the negative influences, in and of the entire lot of us, accumulates as 2-3%, which actually is a mathematical misnomer. It is the collective doubt and apprehensions and thus impacting with a magnitude defying the number it represents. The way out, thus remains the unchanged, despite change being the norm of life. The way is to transform ourselves and the rest gets taken care of. And when the whole lot of us transforms then this residue of negativity ceases to be, it loses its critical mass.

The answer that had been eluding finds its way out as the search, which began much earlier, continued as this article was embarked upon.  So ‘when’ it came in and out seems to be synchronous as only when it came out did it make its presence felt. Though how I am presented with the answer has no significance in this context, but the synchronicity has. As this too is a way of life, as life thrives in its synchronicity and we are all a part of life, moving through, with, in and as this synchronicity.

One could agree with the answer or disagree, but for yours truly this would be the answer till it evolves further. Because any negative force doesn’t have the force to topple the positive force, which is the force of divinity. It is the dormant, but not extinct negativity which erupts…and finds us blaming the so-called 2-3% of negative people for the havoc caused.

The only way out, is the way in…

Feel and Be the BEAT

When the heart has problems with its beats—skips or has fibrillations—one is said to suffer from various diseases of the heart. Yet dis-ease is also felt when one is removed from what the heart says. It is all about rhythm. When that is disturbed, arrhythmia is experienced—in any and many forms. That is the natural norm—and not man made. Hence is upheld, universally, through the continuum of time and space, with our bodies serving as the space where this universal norm is manifested as the embodiment of its truth.

The beating of the heart (like the breath and breathing) beholds the truth that the Force of Life is still within. So when you wish to access the correct decision, listen to beats of the heart and let your decision resonate with the beating heart. It will never beat you. Failing to listen to it, more often than not, causes one to take a beating in life.

Yet the beauty and generosity unconditional of the Life Force, flowing through us, enables one and all to come back, evolved—to beat the mentality which tries to be led by logic of the mind purely. But truth resides in the heart and not in the mind and truth forces its way out always. So ultimately the mind too beats with same frequency as the heart, realizing that to realize its own infinite potential it has to submit to the heart. This submission is an acceptance with gratitude of truth, and not because of any superiority of one over the other. The heart and mind is in coherence and that is sheer bliss.

This is no small feat…as all our activities becomes features of a being, being truly what one is. In fact this is the step (the decision) through which one finds one’s feet finally in life, with purpose of life accessed and adhered to. That is harmony within and without, attained only by listening to the beating of the heart and what it says.

The harmony and the ease is ushered in by reaching and abiding by a decision which is a perfect fit to the truth of a beating heart that doesn’t beat to beat us, but beats…for us…

The Shaking Spear

What heads, might have shaken the heads of some, with instant recognition of that which is to follows; while others might be gradually shaking their heads as they read along, following, that which follows.

There is no point in ambling along, without this preamble—in this case the reason why I am here with this shaking spear. So before anything else is written the same is acknowledged. Months ago, when I had been privileged to come out with the ‘posts’ on Wordsworth and words’ worth, immeasurable (“What A Design!”, in four parts), I had been asked by my friend Stevem (on, what were my views on the great philosopher and poet with the shaking spear. Well he inspired me, and the inspiration becomes the reason. Inspirations are expressed in innumerable ways and they are the reason behind creations too. At times they come from within, while at other times they come from without.

But despite my best intentions, I could not shake the spear of intentions to materialize, before this moment, when it does. I had scribbled some points and even with them serving as the starting point, as I came here, I didn’t know what I could (and would) be writing on Shakespeare that is dependent on me for its unveiling. Beings like him and Wordsworth have been immortalized by their work. Yet at the same time the fact is that as inexhaustible are their works and contributions, so are the discussions. So I am here, egged on by Stevem, knowing fully well that though nothing depends on me to be revealed in this context.  I come with intent to share what I feel about the man with the shaking spear…William Shakespeare. And thus is added a humble view, to the inexhaustible list of commentators, on his work.  

The spear—his pen(in those days there were no keyboards!)—that shook, all, and enthralled at the same time, embody, through what it produced (his works and philosophy), his merger with life in a unique fashion, resulting in his unique expressions. Well, the spear really spared nothing. It soaked in everything—merging with, and drawing from, life fully—creating creations of immeasurable worth.

The Stage
His famous quip, “This world is a stage…,” is so true and at the same time, at times have a prophetic flavor too. The prophetic quality is experienced as life and its various stages are experienced. In fact the stage in itself varies, with different stages in life. Each stage creates a unique stage, involving specific players, who might not be present in ‘an other’ stage or would be (could be, might be) in a different role.

Stage of stages varies. And at the same time, the same stage is perceived—and thus experienced—as a conglomerate of different stages. Shakespeare understood this absolutely and thus is staged even today, with equal fervor, his plays. Each staging of the same tries to bring out something new, hitherto hidden. Shakespeare continues to—and will continue to—wield his spear The spear pierces the receptive with the etchings of new vision embossed forever, indelibly, as it has, since time immemorial. Truly we are all players, on the stage called world, playing our roles and varying our roles as the stage varies.

All that is staged, in and as life, doesn’t keep us caged in the confines of a single stage. Thus, in a single lifetime many lives are lived, with each stage, and each face of each stage, manifesting the renewal of life, within the same lifetime and hence renewed are we all.

How often?

Life is a process where past is definitely past. Yet the way it has passed comes to pass again...only to see how we receive it. Do we face it similarly or we face it by showing our differnt face to it--a face that is a bit more evolved? When it is the latter we are blessed with situations which we call revelations. As it indeed is so, because we get to see something, which we didn't, earlier. Or should we say, couldn't? Through these revelations, we ourselves are revealed to selves, with expressions, "How could I miss it?"; "Wow, it means this as well"...even we could be crying out in jubilation, "Eureka". And last but not the least, when we are overwhelmed by the nature of the revelation, we resort to thanking the Source Within Which guided us to the vision, enabling the revelation. 

Expressions vary, as does the experience. Yet all experiences are unique, hence incomparable. 

Here is shared such a dialogue, that took place within my consciousness, in accordance with the prelude...

A person, in the course of his discourse (the context is out of context here!), started with, “More often than not…”, and no sooner he had started, he was interrupted with an interjection from the audience, “How often?” Prompt came his reply, “As many ‘OUT OF TEN (OF TEN)’ you wish to assume. As far as the content here is concerned, it is ‘nine out of ten’ times.” 

As this dialogue ended, I was stunned , compounding the silence which had blessed me with the experience of the dialogue within.

I was found to wonder,  "How often I have used the word 'often'?"

The answer I received, "More often than not".

The question followed, "How often I saw OFTEN, as I do now, as OF TEN?"

I am replied by my self, "Till now, it was Zero OUT OF TEN...but henceforth, it will be as OFTEN AS TEN OUT OF TEN"!

A dialogue had thus erupted, with self, out of the preceding dialogue (between two imaginary, yet formless characters). And this too is something which happens often...and through it all I am again guided to the message, that messages are received by us depending on our receptivity.

Thus how often a situation comes to pass is not a determinant of whether we will have a revelation. Rather it is determined by how often we are in the moment, with the moment...

Exposure in itself doesn’t have any label—the content and the context give it one.

Thus what is being exposed…and what is being exposed to…and the extent to which it is being exposed, and to, all form the complete package, with a label affixed thus.

And for photographers, exposure still has a different meaning. They play by varying the amount of exposure they subject the shot to…and thus roll out not indiscriminate shots, but distinct ones.

In the times when digital cameras were not the norm, it used to be a happening (more so for non-photographers!)—or should we call it a casualty, nothing short of a mishap on those days?! A roll of film, when extracted from the camera (or while still inside the camera the chamber containing the roll was flipped open), faltered and met with exposure, the roll of film would go for a roll as a ball, rendered completely useless!

As are varied colors of life, so are varied the exposures, with and in, their impacts, their meanings in life, which is everything that is relative—absolutely relative.

That is the only label life could be ‘exposed’ to…Absolutely Relative!

As I am led to a blog posted on Linkedin, Where do we get the need to write?”, by Tim Sunderland, I find myself repeatedly trying to access the link. Yet each attempt is led to the same message: the server is unable to connect to the link.

But nothing goes in vain. Something intervenes always, serving as the purpose for a situation. And many a times, the real cause is camouflaged as something else, which ultimately bares itself. The same meaning the incident beholds for me as I find myself completely unplugging, as the answer forces its way out through me—the answer of the being that I am. The ‘title’ of the blog post is enough, even without accessing the contents, as it allures me to come out with the answer which directly alludes to what I feel and believe thus. It is a healthy provocation, as it invokes the churning spontaneous, within. 

It indeed is a question which each writer is asked by others...and at one point is asked by self of Self too. Either way it is the conviction that is being questioned. And the answer depends on: what writing is for us, means to us, and feels to us, writers. We know writers are not created. Writers are born. Some realize their Calling—As Writing and In Writing—sooner than others. But sooner or later, each does.

Creativity, one is born with. It is not something which is created after the being is created.  This holds true for all forms of creative expressions. All are expressions of The Divinity Within. Herein is being shared the perspective of a writer, with respect for creativity in any and all forms.

Writing is the truest form of self-expression for us writers—expressing the experiences with the expressions creating further experiences. Like whole of life it goes in a cyclic fashion and we marvel at how our own writing leads us to know what we know, yet little do we know, that we know the same, till those words encapsulating our knowing, our knowledge, come up and out...through us. Writing is a journey with self—as self—to merge with The Self. And this journey is a journey of sharing with all, all that a writer gathers, as blessings—the revelations, realizations...everything—and keeps gathering as journey proceeds...forever...and thus sharing too, forever...

The need to write is embedded in our essence...and thus runs to the unfathomable depths within. It is BE-ING who one is. The need to write is as elementary and as indispensable as breathing.

As we breathe so we write and as we write so we breathe.

Right?! (To my writer friends: feel free to disagree)

A Writer is Born. As the Writer evolves, so does the Writing and vice-versa...merged as One. As one writes, so one breathes and as one breathes, so one writes. It is not something one does. It IS Everything That One IS...

What comes to the fore does so because a dose of something definitely has visited before. Every effect has a cause and the cause comes into effect, gains an identity, only when an effect comes to the fore. Inseparable they are, as is everything in life.


Same holds true for what you all happening to be reading—in the form of these words. For that please take a look at the Post Script, as in this case what the Post Script contains has actually led to the script of this article.


Coming to the aspect of pain, pain is experienced, but that pain too doesn’t come on its own. It has a triggering agent. And the pain too serves as a triggering agent for something else and thus goes on the cycle, as life in its entirety is cyclic. Every facet is so…but yes what we learn from the various faces of life that is indeed in our very own hands. On our choice depends our subsequent experience. Experience is constructive only when one evolves from the same.


Pain doesn’t weaken you, but awakens you to your strength. Simple, as is unscrambling of the word—WEAKEN: add an ‘a’ and remove an ‘e’ and it is transformed to AWAKEN, as you yourself are transformed through such times. Well these words are not intended to hurt anyone. I know it is difficult but not impossible, as you yourself have accomplished it, repeatedly. These words simply wish to lead you to your own strength that you have shown time and again.


Unscramble your thoughts, which cause one to vegetate, and ponder on those times, painful, which didn’t weaken you—rather awakened you to your true strength and potential (and real-ization of the same) and ruminate on how you faced the situation which faced you. You will become your own inspiration. And you will be infused with strength at the further realization of a Force acting in, as and through you, and manifesting things which would be logically not possible.


It is something within, unseen which made—and makes—you face that painful face of life that you were faced with, with such a brave face. With this you begin to face life forever with gusto, glee and gratitude as you know that the Highest Powers are Within, guiding you, available and accessible 24x7; but yes only if you will allow It to guide you and only if you choose to access It. It has, and does, even when you are not aware of It. Now is the time to access it consciously. Is it not?


It Is All Yours…the only ‘Thing’ that you Own and can call your very Own, Forever…

Post Script:  My friend Bhavesh’s beautiful quote on pain which doesn’t weaken  but strengthens one triggered this. All of a sudden the word Weaken flashed an image of the word Awaken as I awakened, with gratitude, to the potential article which has now turned into a reality. I am grateful to Bhavesh and the Force Within

Tribute to Attributes of Words

Coming here, to post the postings under “What A Design!” has a reason, as everything has. All that transpires is an effect of a cause that perspires thus. Though yes reason is an individual’s domain, but how far that reasoning is individual is debatable as our perceptions are cumulative effects—of the individual and the collective. In fact the collective goes a long way to form an individual’s perception—more so if the individual has not been able to break free from the conditioned thinking.


Whatever be the mechanism behind the perceptions, one thing is certain that we all aspire, with ardent wishing that may we know what perspires to lead to that which has transpired—the reason behind the happenings in life.


The reasons for my presence here, with this tribute to words, are:

(i) Because of the attributes of the words.

(ii) And the reaffirming revelations I have had, which follows—and which I have deliberately kept under quote, as they came not now, but days ago:


“All realizations are actually revelations and revelations facilitate realizations. My revelations through (and as) words have truly led me to this realization of their limitlessness, with limitedness lying with the human perception and not words. When we accept the same, we revel in the same—as words, truly, more so for us writers, are respected and accepted as limitless. As we enter a realm we realize that there are more—stretching to the infinite. And it is prayed 'So Be It,' as far as the experience of all is concerned. Words the origin so the periphery.


Moreover, when looking from the perspective of life in general, we are creations of our own perceptions. Human perception being limited, humans comprise a race with majority living an unfulfilled potential. It is only when we open up to the treasure trove within do we realize the limitlessness. Even a glimpse of it is enough to enthrall us. At the same time soothes and empowers us, with the awareness of all that is there is there within, waiting to be tapped. Thus propels and impels us to open the ‘tap’ so as to allow the uninhibited flow of the blessings, which are thus real-ized, as made manifest, with blessings routed to an infinite reservoir within.”


As, “Love is the biggest healer,” to sum up, a line is remembered, “Pen is mightier than the sword.” It still is and will, as it has since time immemorial. Only the pen has become more of a metaphor, replaced by the keyboard, with the fingers that once held pen now tapping the keys of the board. But thankfully, words remain irreplaceable and words’ worth, undiminished—immeasurable as ever, and so to be, forever.

P.S. Thanks to Mr. Kaustuv Chatterjee as well, for this post, as his comment on the above-mentioned posts, on the web site, incited comments from me which forms a part of this post. And I had quipped that it could become a post and so it has. He is thanked from the bottom of my heart for making me go within and access all that has come out—all that turns out to be a revelation for me as well. As now I know that I know all that has been shared.

Left to Write

The ‘Right’ of ‘Right’ is ‘The Right’ of Every Citizen, but with deficient governance, The Right is deemed suspended…and this when stood for, is adjudged ‘Not Right’. Yet it cannot choke that which is ‘Left’, which is always there, only at times ignored and left by us,‘The Right’ to ‘Write’. That is what makes pen mightier than the sword.

The Right to Write enables us to express our Right to Live, and not leave matters that need to be expressed and exposed, suppressed. As they are suppressed we are oppressed and as we Write we Writ against all that is oppressive. As we Write we express all that is already Writ indelibly on the psyche of people, yet unexpressed as it would be inedible for those who wish to impose and propagate ignorance and create a culture of suppression and dependence.

There are no rights or wrongs inherently but expression seeks freedom inherently. It is A Right, Written largely in our psyche from the moment of our inception.

And it is always Left to Write when people are forced to move from Right to Left in pursuit of their Right to exercise their Rights.

The beginning lines, in italics, are of my friend, Bhavesh Bati’s, and I am thankful to him. As while commenting on his comments I accessed all that follows. Discussions have this empowering abililty and this is how life operates as it continuously has us involved in co-creations—conscious or unconscious. Thus the comment was deleted as a comment and transformed into this note, which notes all that came up, and found its way out.

“Why Hope for something to Happen, when We have all the Power to make it happen????????

Hope Cripples us... And the result, you can see
*everywhere around us... Look at the life of people living with hope and of those living without one... Living every moment out...”

Hope is a positive aspect, but for that you have to absolutely sure and have absolute faith in your intents and the support from within. Hope doesn't cripple. It is the doubt that does. When you look ahead with hope and faith you do not become hopeless. But yes just hoping but not intending to play an active part in the fruition of the hope is crippling. Everything is relative. So nothing could be labeled as good or bad—it is all contextual.

Hope on its own, cannot stand fully. But by 'being' hope one allows all to stand on their own. And again to be it, one has to be one's true self as every manifestation begins within.

The situation *cited is a result of an adulterated hope. Mixed with hopelessness--"Since we can't do anything else, let us hope that something will happen" being the philosophy, is what my perception tells me. It becomes a default option wherein, one instead of playing one's part places the onus on the external. We are always making things happen--consciously or unconsciously. Even when we abstain we are choosing to allow things to happen in a particular fashion.

And in the context of conscious choices do we not come across situation when the materialization happens not quite in the manner we envisioned? What do we say then and how do we accept the same?

With the affirmation from within, "Everything always happens for the best". And then again we state that we had hoped it would transpire in a particular manner, but though it hasn't, we hope all sees the bigger picture behind the manifestation as we do, that "Everything does indeed happen for the best. The manifestations, which corroborate this fact, though invisible, now, would be visible at the right moment."

Just imagine a statement: “I hope not, as I simply know that the thing will transpire in the fashion desired”. Yet things transpire as per our desire, ditto, when the mind-body-soul is in coherence.

Logic of the metaphysical plane is absolute and works on the principle of absolute faith.
Faith keeps one truly alive. As faith keeps hope alive one is assured that come what may, irrespective of the situation, everything does work out for the best as the same is ensured.

We are not even the doers. We are the ‘choosers’—whether we choose to be who we are and allow the Force Within to work fully and freely. The choice is ours and the choice is the determinant of our life.

Be-ing holds the key to all materialization. And through being when our doing emanates we are filled with irrevocable hope which rubs on all around and dissolves all hopelessness for good and for ever.

So hope doesn’t cripple us. But the way it is used decides whether it is crippling or rejuvenating. And this takes me back to a debate that has been on since time immemorial, “Science is a boon or a bane?”

What do we say about getting the answer: “We hope to get to an absolute dissolution of the debate”, or, “We know we would get to it since we would make it happen?”

Is It The Other Way Round?

Coming in the wake of “So Be It”, little did I know that I would be drawn to the words that are forcing their way out—as an expression of what is being felt within. And this is not the first time that the same has happened as this is the way it always does with myself grateful as I wake up to their presence. The Force convinces me--even as it forces its way out—that nothing could be more apt following what it follows… “So Be It”. And who I am to say anything if not “So Be it”.

It directly takes me to the fact:

We keep praying for things and whatever it is we pray for is definitely a great matter of great significance to us—irrespective of what others might think.

As we pray and call out to The Almighty…the truly All Mighty, considering it as an entity separate from self, the ways we pray are usually:

(a) “I wish for…”
(b) “Please give me…”
(c) “May I be able…”

Whichever way it is, it makes implicit that, that our answers are not implicit to us in our life as they are not explicit. It is quite natural as well, as we live our life as physical beings on this physical plane—bound by innumerable bindings of the mind. No wonder life becomes a grind—day in, day out—with no ways out in sight. The insight being inaccessible to us as sight is more outside than inside.

And the root of all misery is the belief that to ‘earn the faith and thus blessings of God’ we have to ‘do’ something; and that God is in temples, but not in the primary temple—that is our own being. That our ‘be-ing’ is a proof of existence of The Life Force, that we call God, within, eludes us triggering the biggest delusion and sufferings thus.

Yet when we accept that the divine is within we spontaneously realize that we have been given everything. It is we who keep the materializations at bay by not allowing the Life Force to fully flow through us. What we pray as “So Be It” is thus affirmed as “So It Would Be” as “So It Is” already. We become aware that the manifestation which we seek is already made manifest with faith. It is only the concept of time and space that deludes us with veiling of the same.

My faith tells me that it is The Divinity within, which is calling out to us, praying and at the same time affirming, “You have been given everything. Realize your self and real-ize your fullest potential.”

It is the other way round. As The Creator is one with all of Its Creation there is no separate entity to look up to, but an inherent entity, within, our Highest Self—The Source Within, The Creative Force of The Universe.

It is the Force Within which seeks release as IT prays, “So Be It”.

It is the other way round with God urging, praying and affirming, “So, Be It”, “So Be It” and “So It Is”.

Thus instead of “May God Bless All” the affirmation comes out as confirmation from within, “God Blesses All”.

So Be It

What A Design!

As we come to this part, I feel what I feel always—that no part is apart from any of the parts. It is a continuum and we concentrate on the infinite aspects of one and the same aspect one at a time. But to share what I am ‘given’ to share, I have been inspired to share it in a manner which doesn’t call for your time too much. Hence, in parts. Yet it is wished that they call out to you and reaches you all.

Though yes, the ways would differ. We receive the one and the same thing in different manner. Experience is an individual thing. And again the individual experiences, go on to form the collective experience and collective destiny, as they are shared. I hope I have been able to share the wonders that I am blessed with, in the form of these revelations—for whatever they are worth…

What it means to me could very well not mean to you. Meaning is a purely customized aspect—a designer issue! Meaning is what we give. As is the meaning so is our experience. And as is the experience so is the meaning perceived.

Thus varies the meaning of a single word for different people. Yet we say worth of words is limited. Are the words limited or is it the perception that is limited? Once we open ourselves to the worth of words we accept and appreciate the limitlessness of words, instead of lamenting on the perceived limitedness of the same. Then as we create, so we say—actually we pray—for every creative expression, “So Be It” and follow it up with a gentle nudge to the creation, “So, Be It”. “So” being the limitlessness of the worth.

And So It Has Been with William Wordsworth—the being and his creations, as one!!! As he has been said, “So, Be It”…so he has responded, “So Be It”…and so we are urged and egged to be beings@soulbeings .unlimited , transforming from . Accessing the Soul, we access the unlimited potential within, unlock it and success attains a different dimension altogether.

One who knows not self, knows none.

So we are urged: “Go for it—know yourself”.

Then are encouraged, “So, Be It”.

Are we ready to affirm, “So Be It”?

Hope and pray it is the latter… “So Be It”

The Mechanism

What A Design!



The mechanism, as stated in Part-II, is as simple as is grand—as is the Design. After all beauty lies in simplicity, as simplicity doesn’t lie. Yet unable to comprehend simplicity, complexities are born, borne and propagated. Because the mind searches for reason, while the soul is the reason, which the mind fails to recognize, unless it does.


Mind believes in that what it sees and cannot accept the unmanifest. Though it itself is unmanifest! It cannot accept that things could emanate in absence of any visible source of knowledge/inspiration/wisdom. Thus the fact that bliss could be accessed in solitude is foreign to it, till it is convinced of the same.


The momentary flashes turn the moments momentous as they pour out nuggets from within. Or should we call from nowhere? As that is what it feels, as it comes up, and out from within—from that well of unfathomable depth. And then the mind too realizes that there is nothing called ‘nothing’ and nowhere called ‘no where’. As the consciousness is everywhere and everything is consciousness. The very fabric of life is consciousness. Call it energy, call it God Force. If you will. What you will is your will, but the fact remains that there is no ‘point’ in the universe which is a void; even quantum physics has proven that! Life is thriving in even nano spots, which earlier where labeled ‘void’ and ‘nothing’.


The revelation of the mechanism, of and in solitude, revolutionizes the meaning and implications and acceptability of solitude. The experiences of the flashes, the mind can no longer call false.


Solitude could be metaphorical and again could be literal—with the former being a situation when one is in the midst of all, yet one is completely one with one’s own self, is with one’s own self—in that ‘zone’. Thus is there, but not ‘in’ there.


Though the solitude, metaphorical or literal, each conducive to receipt of flashes, are to be complemented by the biggest solitude—a mind, lone, without any thoughts, empty, completely open and ready to receive the signals from the Source Within—the Infinite Reservoir. The flashes that are there, are there always. Yet the ripples they cause are noticed only when this state is attained, with the mind having accessed solitude too of the soul.


Solitude impacts differently all and solitude means different to all. But what it meant to Wordsworth is now understood by many. If not all…


With the mind away from the mind and its clatter, within and without, noises absent within and without, uncluttered, it receives and accepts all as it doesn’t use itself, rather responds to the voice within.


Solitude creates an attitude of gratitude, as one realizes the creativity within, and thus the worth of one’s life, and thus feels worthy of this life. It is the Soul’s mission for which it comes on earth—the Sole mission to express itself fully and thus real-ize itself completely and in that Solitude is an empowering catalyst.


William Wordsworth realized this and honored it by paying tribute to solitude, reflecting his experiences through his expressions, in a way only he could changing the essence of solitude for ever…
