being always follows two paths in life. One path is followed by
the physical self... the body! As a human being everyone desires
having the best of career... living a modest life full of gaiety
and laughter... in short enjoying the best of life. This has been
made possible by the scientific developments taking place world
The wanton desires...
the need for materialistic riches also has its bad side. It plunges
most human beings into the dungeon of cravings... crying for more
and more. And at this point a human being introspects. One starts
traveling the religious path of life... the other path! Some who
crave for God take the path of spirituality. Almost 99% people remain
following the teachings of enlightened masters. Everyone religiously
follows the teachings of enlightened masters like Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed... but none thinks of becoming
one! Religion separates enlightened souls from mortals. On the contrary
spirituality spells that every mortal has the potential within to
persuades mortals to worship their religious masters. Spirituality persuades one
to travel the spiritual path and become one like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus
Christ or Prophet Mohammed. The onus of traveling the path... religious or a spiritual
is absolutely the prerogative of every human being. As a human being we have a
total of 1.1 million manifestations (in the human form) until one reaches the
stage of enlightenment.
journey of 1.1 million manifestations is roughly covered in 12.1 million earthly
years... a long journey indeed. Most say... what the hurry is! But Mahavira, Gautama
Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed curtailed their journey and gained enlightenment
in their very life. In the spiritual domain one is permitted to cut short the
journey and reach... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last leg in the cosmic
life cycle reaching which one gains entry into the kingdom of God (aka Vaikuntha
practically helps every human being live the best of life in the present domain...
the span of 70 to 80 years. Religion helps maintain a balance between the materialistic
and the inner world of our soul atman within. Spirituality prompts one to reach
the end of cosmic life cycle at the earliest and gain enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha) in our lifetime. Who knows what form of
life we might manifest in the next manifestation?
of the total of 8.4 million manifestations on the whole... 7.3 million manifestations
are passed in the form of insect life, plant life and animal life. The balance
1.1 million manifestations are to be lived as a human being. The journey of life
is tough but not impossible! To choose or not to choose... the power is available
with every human being! We all face hurdles in life... yet, choosing a path of
life dear to our heart is the crux of life.
