#AtoZChallenge: K is for Knowledge

#AtoZChallenge: K is for Knowledge

There is a big difference between the knowledge and knowing. Knowledge is something that consumes the space of your memory whereas knowing is the assimilation of knowledge. Knowing the thing means you are applying your knowledge and insights. Knowing is wisdom that is not borrowed from outside. It comes from inside. Knowing reflects your wisdom and intelligence. Knowledge is what you hear, what you see, what you read, what you eat or what you feel. It is the assembly of experiences that you can understand by your five senses. This assembly stays in your memory as the knowledge. It has no work until you are applying it to develop your wisdom. Intelligent is the one, who can apply his or her knowledge in the present. Thus, knowing something is always the state of the present where you are applying your past to develop your wisdom.

knowledge

Knowledge is the belief that you have gathered by your sensory organs. For example; Somebody told you that tomato is not a fruit. It is your knowledge. But,  the sense of not applying tomato in the fruit salad is your intelligence that nobody told you before.

Knowledge.

It doesn’t matter how much knowledge you have. The thing, which matters most that how much you apply your knowledge to know the present. Hence, knowing reflects the clarity of your thoughts. As much as you execute your knowledge you will be confident about your wisdom and capabilities.  On the other hand, storing knowledge in your memory bank makes you proud as it gratifies your ego.

Knowledge is like the money. Storing it in your bank gives you the feel of proud and applying it in purpose makes you happy.

Moonlight Musing

Moonlight Musing

The darkness can be brighter than the daylight when the moonlight of the full moon pours its nectar in your heart.  Yesterday was the full moon day. The glowing of the moon is so serene that musing automatically comes from experiencing the peach of the moonlight. So, I tried to capture the moon at my lens to share those musings.

Full moon on the sky

I don’t want to be the sun. I want to be your moon to pour my light in your darkest phase of life.

Close view of Full moon

When I see the moon I feel I’m very close to you as we are under the same moonlight. Perhaps this is the cause why I love darkness.

Moon behind the leaves

Please put out the lamp and open the window of your room. The nectar of moonlight will shine on your darkest chamber.

The lamp in the room is like the ego or the “I”-ness or the image which we create outside to veil our originality or true Self. When the ego is dissolved, the light of wisdom comes within us to dissipate the darkness of ignorance.

Shine so brightly that no one can make a shadow on you, even in your darkest hours of life.

Close to River

Close to River

When you do things from your heart, you feel a river is moving in you, a joy.”- Rumi

When I see a river, I feel that I see the image of my liveliness. The river is very much connected to animation. It flows with its own rhythm.  It comes out from the mountain and then travels a long path through different places and meets the ocean, finally. The sole purpose of its travel is to meet the ocean.  When it travels through the lands, all the creatures and natures are benefitted by its water. The river is free flowing and it is flowing for a great purpose, that is; to meet the ocean. Therefore, its flow in everywhere is so purposeful.

When you will move ahead for a great purpose, your every path will be purposeful.  You may get struck by obstacles like rocks or mountain, which you cannot move, but later you will see, those actually guided you to fulfil your purpose. Your flow of life may be slow when your mind is loaded with the social waste like anger, fear, disgust, jealousy, and so forth similar emotions.  Then your travel becomes so painful. Pain always distracts us from external affairs. It helps to narrow your flow towards the sea, which rests inside you. It leads you to find the path of your soul purpose. Ultimately, it will guide you to reach in the ocean where your all emotions transcend.  It is the world of immense wisdom. Knowing our true Self is the sole purpose of our lives.  We are blessed with this body to know the ultimate truth of life. For that reason, when we do things from our heart, we feel the river is moving within us.

 Last month, I got an opportunity for multiple small trips. During those trips, I visited three rivers The Ganges, The Godavari and The Cauvery of India. I have clicked some snaps of those by my untrained hands. I just clipped those photos to express my feelings with those rivers.

Grief: How To Unlock The Period of Grieving

Grief: How To Unlock The Period of Grieving

How to unlock the period of grieving.

Grief:

Grief is the most powerful emotion of our life.  When it comes to life, it demolishes all the previous setups of our life. Life becomes totally unorganized. Actually, when grief comes, it hacks our life completely. It starts to regulate everything of our life like habits, behaviors, visions, reactions and basic characteristics and so on.

It’s like that; our kingdom of happiness is attacked by the king of grief. The new king changes all the rules of happiness kingdom. We fight a lot against it. Sometimes we win and able to live in the happiness kingdom. But when we lose, we have to stay in the kingdom of grief. Then the king continues his kingdom by torturing us badly and then the painful condition starts. Day by day, we start to adopt the new rules of grief kingdom and represent us as grieving people. In this way, grief locked our life from earthly happiness.

Why are we grieving?


Grief comes from loss, separation, rejection, failure or incomplete dream. When a thing, which we think our part of life, is separated from us, we are grieving for that thing. That’s mean we feel incomplete without that thing. So, we are not grieving for our loss, we are grieving for our incompleteness. The things, which completes you, are the main cause of grieving. If I say more specifically, it is our dependency on some particular things those maybe our habits, maybe our security, maybe our desire, may be our body parts, and maybe our self-esteem and so on. When you think without these we are incomplete, it tears you apart. You can understand it better if I give some examples.

Suppose, somebody has lost his any body part by some disease or accident. Can you imagine the depth of his grief? We all know that how much we are dependent upon our  every body part. He has to learn to live his whole life without that part of the body on which he was so much dependent.

The parents, who lost her child, are grieving for their dependency on their child like their body parts and their habits, related to the child.

A boy has a dream or a particular aim. Day by day, he lives with his dream and it becomes his part of life. But, if he fails to fulfill his dream, he feels sad. But this sadness is not for the dream. It’s  because he thinks he is incomplete without this dream. So, he grieves.

In the same way, break up of any relationships or death of loved ones bring grief due to  the dependency on some habits or some qualities of the separated persons rather than the losing the  persons. Loving someone means loving some specific qualities of the person, which one doesn’t have but one wish to have. That’s mean the specific characteristics of someone make him/her complete. Separation means incompleteness. That’s why grief comes.

How to unlock the period of grieving?     

Grief has a tremendous power of transformation. It can transform a strong person with a weak one or a weak to a strong (read wise), stronger. It depends on how you use it. If you use it purposefully, it will unlock the closed period of grieving. Finally, you can win your grief

How to use the grief purposefully?

  • At first, grief  attacks our ego. Ego is the shield of our inner Self. It separated us from our inner self. Grief dissolves your ego. After a huge fighting, when you will start to accept it, you must say like that “I’ m nothing or nothing is in my hand, it seems like that we are a puppet of our life, everything is predestined. I’m the most unfortunate person in the world.”  Just think, before your grief you always said like that ” I can do that, I can change that”. This “I” is your ego. Grief breaks the wall of ego into pieces.
  • When your ego is dissolved, you might feel that you are alone because you were already habituated to live with your ego. The true journey of grief starts from here as you lose your dependency on your ego. In this phase, the road is divided in two different ways. One is the external and other is internal. When you feel alone, you must try to find someone who will guide you because your life is hacked by the grief. You can not understand yourself even. If you go to the outside for searching for a friend, you cannot win over your grief unless you meet a true guide. Your friend can share your sorrow, can console you, but cannot defeat your grief.
  • flame3Only wisdom can defeat the grief. Inner Self is the core of the wisdom. So, to conquer the grief one should take the turn which goes to the inner Self. The light of your wisdom enlightens the darkness of grief. A true guide always encourages other to face their inner self.
  • A huge courage is needed to face the inner Self because it reveals the much-naked truth of ourselves by destroying our delusions. When the courage comes in your mind, you can fight against our grief. Generally, when we face our inner Self, the first question comes to our mind is “Why me”. From this stage, the introspections start.
  • During this stage, you can see your mistakes (if you have), you can point out your wound, your roles, and actions in the whole incident.  This introspection will help you to find the answer to the question, “why me”.
  • As much as you ask the questions to your inner Self, you will know yourself. You will be aware of your dependence, habit or incompleteness.
  • This is called self-awareness. When you aware of yourself,  you will start to work on those by changing your habits, being an independent person and filling the blank of incompleteness.
  • Filling the incompleteness means not that the thing or the person you’ve lost will back in your life. It means you have to overcome your dependency on the qualities and characteristics of the particular thing or the person. You can do it by achieving those qualities and characteristics within you.

I know a girl who has lost her father in her teenage life. This death broke down her completely because she was very much dependent on her father. When she discovered that she was dependent on her father’s certain qualities like decision making, guiding, confidence, leadership, she started to achieve those qualities in her life. She did it though it takes a lot of time. After achieving those qualities in her life, she never feels bad for her father because she has won her grief

A boy had lost his one eye in an accident. His grief realized him, what we see by our eyes is not enough for our life. We need the vision to see ourselves. His grief opens his vision of wisdom.

A mother had lost her young child. The trauma broke her down completely. She realized the cause of her trauma is her dependency on the world of her child i.e., the habits of bringing up the child, dream of her child. Her grief discovered that child is not the boy, whom she gave birth. The child is she herself. When she started to bring up her by guiding of her inner Self, she won over her grief.

Conclusion:

There is no shortcut way to unlock your grief. It’s long and also a time taking procedure. You have to suffer in grief to know it. Then, you can unlock the grieving period. So, use this suffering period to know yourself. That knowledge helps you to win over it.  The great philosopher Rumi said, “Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes around in another form”. So, try to achieve that ‘another form’. There is always a big tragedy behind all the creations. To create something special, one must have to unlock the period of grieving. Grief breaks you to rebuild you in a stronger form. So, embrace the grief with courage to discover the actual meaning of life.
