We are a fortunate few who lived in an era where industrial revolution of the last two centuries transformed into a mighty electronic or IT explosion within a few decades.
Â From abacus and slide rules to super computers on your desktop. Â From Morse code (called Telegrams) to texting across the world (we now call Messaging). We are simply part of this big explosion and coping up in two planes, physical and mental
Â â€œMachines or instruments, cities, ships, or menof-war, all these are simply the manifestation of the will of manâ€_(Swamy Vivekananda_From Karma & its Effects)
We are leveraging our energy physical as well as mental, by outsourcing to gadgets or technologies to speed up our living process. A wheel, (the forerunner of a Jumbo Jet) was invented to do your legâ€™s work, and an Abacus was created to do your brains work, now taken care by your desktops.
According to Vedas our spiritual evolution to â€œHuman Beingsâ€, is an achievement in our path to the source after many births or â€œreincarnationsâ€ (as different forms of many lives) and their â€œKarmicâ€ achievements. Only at this level as a Human, as Vedas claim, you are given the capacity to see the â€œIâ€ (or the EGO which leads you to the â€œIâ€). The â€œIâ€ in you uses the most unique tool â€œYour mindâ€, to control your operations in the two planes, physical and mental.
Mind is a tool operated by the â€œIâ€, in you and the â€œIâ€ is not your â€œMindâ€. This is repeated in again and again in Vedas. Vedas help your â€œIâ€Â to deal with your mind. They are the spiritual laws:
Here I Repeat the message from the Home Page.
“Vedas are without beginning and without end. It may sound ludicrous to this audience, how a book can be without beginning or end. But by the Vedas no books are meant. They mean the accumulated treasury of spiritual laws discovered by different persons in different times. Just as the law of gravitation existed before its discovery, and would exist if all humanity forgot it, so is it with the laws that govern the spiritual world.”
:from the Paper “Read at the Parliament of Religions at Chicago, on 19th September, 1893, By Swami Vivekananda.
These readings from Vedas take us inwards to reveal the answers, and I thank you for joining me in this illuminating journey into â€œThe Selfâ€.
