A review of the view presented, and the feelings felt, evoked by Dr Hari Kumar Parameshwar’s The Pillar, Invisible

It is the pillar, invisible, that lends us form and stability…. Unwavering, it is….

It is the invisible that holds the key…as it is the invisible that makes itself known, through its various manifestations…and to render the invisible visible, we are in form—to acknowledge and realize the essentially formless that we are….

And this is what, Dr Hari Kumar Parameshwar, is back again, stating, in his riveting style, in, as and through his third novel: The Pillar, Invisible. Dealing with the subtleties, on the template of the gross, weaving the patterns through the multi-textured plot is his endearing and engrossing  uniqueness, presenting the strong message, yet again, affirming, what we see, without, is because of what all goes on within, in and as our consciousness, its level….

It is all in the mind…and when the mind realizes that it is not all that there is to life, and surrenders to all that actually is, it is healed, and healed is life, fulfilled….

The Pillar, Invisible is the search for that invisible pillar, the fourth pillar, which leads to the melding of the three pillars, the three main characters of the novel. And the search is, because of the disparity, apparent, the stark contrasts, displayed by these three, as also, because of the inexplicable, by conventional logic, the meteoric and sustained rise of the Tasara Group of Companies…

This novel, yet another novel presentation from Dr Hari, the novelty of his creativity and commitment to humanity verily palpable, so compassionately and passionately has presented the characters, the storytelling, as impeccable as it is always, the “cause,” as noble as it is always:  The essentiality of incorporating spirituality in the corporate world. Spirituality liberates one and all from judgmental attitude, and this is what is felt…all through…. Thus, at the end of the novel, none of the characters are found to be impeachable, each a manifestation of a particular guna, trait predominant. Further to it, the symbolism of the names is admired, awe, inspired, when realized…. Melded and welded, well, the balance of the three gunas is harmony, and this is reflected comprehensively by Tasara, wholistic and holistic its essence, approach, functioning and output, contributing comprehensively to the society constructively. It is the brainchild of the three main characters, birthing their “baby,” as they are birthed anew…finding themselves…and the way they are brought together upholds the mystical, surreal manner in which the grand design of life unfurls…in ways grander than the grandest of imagination could conjure, divine synchronicities dotting and bedecking the path…. The events, to begin with, might appear as sore spots, yet, healing cannot be without pain…the gain cannot be realized so long the loss is not felt… Drawn are together, thus, the characters, main, of this saga…the symbolism, inherent, not only in their names but in the very organization they birth—in real sense, well-organized.  It is the manifestation of, “as within so without,” the balance of the three gunas presenting the resultant, which could not have resulted by just one of them. And by doing so, it upholds yet another fact of life, the sojourn—the physical journey in, as and through forms physical—that we call life: It is as collective as individual it is, and to appreciate and realize the eternal, within us all, we are in form, moving through and transcending the ephemeral, while still in bodily form.

Guiding through this search, Dr Hari has gifted a simply breathtaking saga…. The pace, though might leave one breathless, one is never short on breath…asking for more and more, without any pause. It is a poignant and healing page-turner, both at the same time…Dr Hari yet again leaving the mark of his invisible essence, in his now-trademark style, verily visible, touching, and appreciated from the core of being.

The Pillar, Invisible resonates with the truth that the heart knows and mind grows, and then only knows, in sync with the heart, which resonates with the soul: it is the truth of a logic that transcends the conventional, the divine order and its perfection that is in full display, untiringly unfurling and affirming, the visible is because of the invisible eternal.

Revere, not berate...

All is always there, yet, in moments uniquely receptive, received are the hitherto "unseen." Even though the scene remains same, the "seen" is not quite so! This is how the splendors are splashed in the conscious consciousness by the graciousness divine of the Divine...the Infinite. 

So is found to reverberate the word "reverberate" appearing differently, and all so transpires that yet again inspires the divine, magical, mystical synchronicity...: the word file indicates some sort of error, the green-colored underline. Error there is none, and who knew, till known, that the underline underlined the ever underlying affirmation of the Divine: Lies, within, everything...and so is it with the words...beholding much more than is seen.

The reverberation of "reverberate," received, is a calling from within, and to all: "As the calling reverberates, revere and not berate, your very being!"

Answer seeks the question!

Where arises the question, there lies the answer, too…albeit in a different nook, at and as a different level of the same intrinsic consciousness…the individual, a part of the collective consciousness, and all, a part of the universal consciousness, universal as is consciousness. Without the questions, answers do not have any identity, the answers realized as answers, as raises the head, the entity, the questions!

Experience the feelings, feeling the experience!

The beauty, the deeply healing, soothing emotions, that are the hallmark of the inexplicable relationships, with beings as well as things—the boundary, between animate and inanimate, dissolved—can be savored and revered, cherished and relished not by trying to understand and explain the “why” but by experiencing wholly the feelings and feeling the experience fully…. So experience the feelings, feeling the experience!

In a grain of rice, wisdom ingrained!

Wisdom is the grain that forms life physical… Wisdom is with what life comes to form physical…. A seed knows how to grow…

Nothing is insignificant, everything, formed of the same infinite intelligence that forms and guides the process of life, with all things and beings integral to it.

This very intelligence, wisdom spoke for itself…yet again, today…

Sitting down, to lunch, with parents, as mom served rice, both me and father exclaimed, with the vibration of revelation, expressed, Eureka-like: The grain of rice looked longer than it had done, prior to the day, and so markedly that it drew our attention…with mom joining in, in the affirmative! And then, the logical mind, calling upon the “left brain,” entailed itself to find the reason…the investigative juices in full flow…and in another Eureka-moment, had it: The container in which it was cooked was bigger than the one usually used for that quantity of rice! Yet, the yet-another Eureka-moment that followed, immediately, found me totally floored and arisen, with the wisdom, arising, overwhelmed with gratitude….

This, the input of the “right brain,” presents the wisdom from the “core”: Space, given, growth is facilitated. The grains of rice, as got more space, got the scope… So akin to our interactions…
In our interactions and relationships, space has to be given, that space of honor, respecting all, even with all apparent differences and disagreements—and even when there are no differences. The excessive concern, as well as the tendency to impose, both, ultimately become overbearing, leading the interaction into a “reaction,” as also, doesn’t allow the growth of the other participant….

As is received the correlation, applauded is the wisdom, inherent in every being and everything—and that, hence, leads to the same, a grain of rice, the wisdom ingrained in it, one with that ingrained within our own selves, as our very being….

The investigative juices are lauded, in the aftermath, as the “passionate curiosity,” as connects with the core…the mind responding to the right brain, and jubilantly, the left and right, march in harmony…. Courted is Einstein, and thus, is quoted, hereby: “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.”

The wisdom ingrained in the grain of rice, as leads to the essentiality of according space for growth, honoring the oneness and uniqueness, of each and all, both at the same time, so conveys, “Live and let live,” and relays the same, the idiom, “This far and no further,” to experience a life that thrives, instead of heaving heavy sighs.

The wisdom, at the core, finds its way out, one way or the other, just as it does, through this medium, a grain of rice…as wisdom ingrained in the grain of rice!
