If I talk about the Hindu religion, all their gods are kings and warriors (kshatriya)... Then when and how did the reins of religion get into the hands of these pundits and sannyasins?
In any country of the world, the amount of serenity that is endowed by the artists; an equal amount of peace is robbed by the politicians and religious heads of that country.
If you keep your focus fixed on the 'witness' - the one who is watching rather than the 'ego' - the doer...your identification with the objects, people and acts will be severed. The root cause of all the miseries of the world is our attachment with them.
What are we...? Even our ability to see, hear or bear temperature is confined to a certain limit... In such a case, what is the value of the understanding of our brain that we have pinned all our hopes on it for touching the heights of success. If you really wish to make your life successful, it is possible only by understanding the depths of mind and immersing yourself in it.
I would say harbouring negativities and even the acts driven by such emotions are not wrong but what is wrong is, because of them your life gets filled with sorrows and failures.
Ultimate freedom means to live life freely with ''self-discipline''. Ego means living by the thousands of disciplines borrowed from vice - virtues, religion and society.
How could a person who is busy trying to amass more than a moment, ever be successful in a world which is enlightened by just one facet of time i.e 'present'?
We are so interested in religion that first we put the person who has come to awaken us to sleep. Then making him God, we establish such a religion around him that we don't face any obstacle in perpetrating the violence, jealousy, partiality, lies, cheating, fraud or pretence as we desire; and simultaneously adhering to few hypocrisies, also remain proud of being religious.
All the struggles of life are less dependent on circumstances and more on our state of mind. This is the reason why "a resolute mind" is easily able to conquer even the toughest of the problems.
If you are dissatisfied or unhappy with any of your act or thinking, then too don't try to change it, you will fail miserably. Transform your nature, your action and thinking will change by themselves.
