"NATURE OF LIFE"

"We and Thoughts"

by Vishwa Abhikrishna

We are surrounded by the thoughts. These thoughts give birth to our intention; on the one hand thoughts are the basis of intention and on the other intention creates our personality. During this process the consciousness­­ of a person becomes the main energy source of the building of personality.


A person's mind and heart are the most sensitive areas in his body & personality. These are the main pillars of body's whole laboratory, with different sense- be it smell, sight, sound, taste or touch- providing the continuous stream of thoughts, the thoughts mingle with biological chemicals working on the energy of consciousness.


These thoughts and chemicals both affect each-other. As the result of it our heart and mind receive some feelings in forms of thought. To build a healthy personality one has to be continuously conscious of these feelings. It is important to keep watch on these thoughts during one's whole journey of life.


A wise scrutiny can only give a meaningful feeling because the heart is the emotional field ofa person, our feelings are controlled by this field and they affect whole life-journey. They work as ours in the making of the personality and these feelings provide us a balance and the juice of life on the face of our life with these feelings we retain a kind of objectivity while passing through the life. This objectivity is our confidence which feeds internal energy and work as a propeller towards the direction of the goal.


This objectivity is the blades of the propeller of contentment in life, which takes our consciousness shrouded in a personality towards a certain act. Only the well-defined-healthy personality's feeling can become the feeling of the divinity of life in our heart. These feeling only can activate each and every part of our body's laboratory.


The energy in its different modes works in a certain rhythm, the changes brought by them is the speed of life's development. In its totality these are the processes of continuous life, and that's how the life finds its ultimate meaning in the most clear of terms.


That's the main reason; the physical appearance of today's human is quite different from the older times. During a long period of history the human-being developed both mentally as well as physically. That's why one should watch one's short comings in order to develop.


Only then can the life process find a clear and beautiful direction. The darkness of our life is also a hidden stream of the river of life. This darkness, in its other form comes out and illuminates the life.


Darkness and light, the two opposite forms of same energy pass through the invisible transparency that is the process-relative functional situation which is beyond the matter. These norms and processes are being guided by the centre of the infinite and the possibilities are happening in this entire endless-space and we are the spirit of life as human beings on the surface of earth. In this process, through nature our intellectual development is still going on.
