Creation After the Destruction

Creation After the Destruction

After a terrific storm, nature becomes calm.  Like that, a pure silence can be experienced after the demolition of the remaining constructions that is related to Ego. Creation begins after every destruction. Storm surges, the dark clouds cover the light blue sky, the strong wind ruins everything, the heavy rain washed off the signs of existing structures and then the calmness comes. The composure is so perfect that it seems like that nothing falls out before this.  But, this calmness is very productive. In this calmness, the sun comes up, the flower blooms, birds come out by forgetting the loss and people begin to accept the destruction and moves away, slow. As the day becomes long, people set out to build the new constructions over the destruction with the new enthusiasm.  

But, those, who cannot bear the passing of that devastation, who still exist in the storages of the past, cannot build anything new. Storm comes again and again and destructs them as it did before until they are ready to bear the end.

A famous quote of Graham Greene.

The path of creation is very tough. After experiencing a deep agony of destruction, one can discover the ecstasy of creation. After passing a heavy storm, one can experience the authentic  silence. This silence is the creator of so many things those never happen before. This silence knows the pain of loss and the ecstasy after an ultimate agony. This silence can realize the meaning of all suffering and significance of surviving after the tempest. Thus, this silence can cultivate one’s life, totally. Hence it’s not an ordinary silence. It is full of wisdom and vigor. It has a tremendous power of exploding one, completely. And when it does that, only the excellence comes out from the core of the existence. It’s because now there is no fear of losing anything, there is nothing left to save for future in life. Whatever is remaining after the destruction is permanent and eternal and untouched by anything.  Hence, whichever comes from the explosion is the cosmos of that eternal existence and this foundation comes from applying the totality of being.

This creation is totally different from previous creation because in this creation one can use his or her totality. So, whatsoever one will create after this storm, he or she pours his or her total energy within it. Hence, the creation after the devastation of a huge storm is incomparable to anything. It’s pure like the soul because the soul blooms like a flower in the deep silence after the storm.

This is only possible when one doesn’t avoid the storm, when one accepts the storm and its destructions and when one uses the calmness after the storm to discover oneself. The storm  always comes as a pennant of triumph in life. It can be entirely understood at the first light after the conclusion of the long stormy night.

I am not sure what you mean by the storm. All human beings go through stages of psycho social development and developmental crises at every stage, as Erik Erickson a child psychiatrist traced the developmental trajectory , he described early stages of trust versus mistrust , autonomy versus Shame and guilt , industry versus inferiority, identity versus identity crisis , intimacy versus isolation, generativity versus stagnation, integrity vs despair , through out human life. Most people given the conducive circumstances for growth do not feel these crises as very devastating . When nurturing is lacking many suffer developmental snags. Some… Read more »

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. It’s a different aspects of how creativity is developed and and other psychological issues with children. Good to know about that.

Sayanti, this is every well written. I would say, taking a cue from your essay, that the ‘storm’ is a preparation phase or transformation before something new is birthed. It is the coming together of the Energy/forces of Universe to bring that profound change.

Thanks, Amitav. Yes, storm is transformation phase. A new is not birthed until the old is demolished. And such a good line you’ve added that the coming together of the forces of universe to bring that profound change. Thanks for this also.

Nicely written passage…i feel storm is an external force of nature used to destroy the old existing things.

Destruction is the starting phase of Creation of new thing.

Destruction takes place for the purpose of creation of new thing which is better than the destroyed one.
Have a wonderful evening.

Wow! what a great thing you’ve said with these few words. I didn’t think like this way. Thank you for sharing this worthy view.

Ah, then I misunderstood you – sorry, Sayanti. I thought that by saying these words I was agreeing with what you said in your article (which was great, by the way).

Yes, you said the same by these words. But, the comparison was great. By the way, it seems like that you have enough knowledge of Indian Mythology. How do you know about that?

I have Indian friends, I visited India many times, I read widely and I have an appetite for the beauty that you represent by being Indian.

A lot of my posts have been about Indian philosophy. If you search for stuff like Karma, Samsara, Chakra – that sort of thing then you will find plenty to read.

Yes, I saw such types of post in your blog at a glance. Found it is quite interesting and thought will read those stuff, quietly, after coming home (was travelling that time).
