Free Will

"If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be truly fulfilled."

Taking things out of context I believe is now one of the most appealing trends of our generation. Moral values seem to have become flexible enough to fit everyone’s personal needs. Everyone takes it upon themselves to make a set of rules and code of conduct to fit their comfort, that’s not the worse part. The worse part it they will actively promote it as acceptable practice. In most of my blogs I keep emphasizing the point that spirituality comes in before religion. The reason I do that to make everyone understand that just by performing mere rituals your duty isn’t done.

I’ve spoken enough about sins, we all sin, and in spite of numerous attempts by various organized religion we shall continue to do so. Forgiveness is an integral part of life, how you forgive yourself and how you forgive others. Forgiving yourself may be the hardest task ever, but it the only way to move on from your past. An individual places a lot of emphasis in the hands in the hands of the person you seek forgiveness from, the power you place in this persons hand is time bound, when they decide to demoralize you for an alleged lie, and whole heartedly forge adultery, again the end is just round the corner. Life becomes a pointless journey when your soul is dead, when materialistic needs trump spiritual ones.

It’s just sad to see that publicly humiliating yourself is acceptable but a blog is what offends you, or in the words of a trusted friend “started the fire”. What makes me sleep better at night is that I don’t buy my clothes at a curtain shop. All the Buddhas of all the ages have been telling you a very simple fact: Be - don't try to become. Within these two words, be and becoming, your whole life is contained. Being is enlightenment, becoming is ignorance.
