Perception

We are not just the body,

We are not just the mind,


We are much more than body and mind.


We are not able to perceive the beauty and splendour of our "Self" and the Almighty Intelligence behind everything is because our sensory equipment is designed the other way. The veil before our eyes is the creation of our senses. Our senses act only within a particular range. Areas beyond that range are completely shut out from us. And we live in this limited perception of life.


Just imagine how limited we are in our sense. A moth can smell its mate from even as far off as seven miles and a shark can scent blood two miles away. Bees find their way by polarized light imperceptible to human beings, and whales locate their prey with sonar-echo thousands of feet below the surface of the ocean. What worlds are hidden from us we cannot even imagine?


To add up with this from the time of our birth our schools have taught us to look outside and we have never been taught to silence our senses and to look deep inside our mind.


Is it not the time to become aware of our Self?
Is it not the time to know and experience the splendour and grandeur of consciousness?
Is it not the time for us to explore the beyond?


People who ignore will always remain in darkness. They can never come to know the truth and beauty of existence.

Yesterday, I saw a video from TED, I was very impressed by Alwar Balasubramaniam's works...

What are we..actually? Are we sparks of the divine? Isn't there divinity in each of us? Wat has happened to that divinity? Looks like it is lost. But then again I find that there is a gradual awakening happening in society at present. That awareness of things that one cannot really explain or perceive in black and white. The world is changing...
