finally gains enlightenment in the end. Walking the path of absolute truthfulness
is difficult in the present world full of wanton desires and materialistic riches...
but not unachievable! We also need to follow the path of Neti (not this, not this)
as preached and advocated by Maharishi Ramana. Practicing absolute celibacy also
helps become purer.
If people are dishonest...
are we supposed to worry? Who gave us this right! In the cosmic system of things
everything in life has two facets. If we have God at plus hundred... we also have
Satan at minus hundred. We have day... we also have night. We have fire... we
also have water. In absence of one... the other loses its meaning. If the society
was totally honest... life would become so monotonous... it would lose its meaning!
real strength comes from our own character... the path of truthfulness that we
are supposed to follow. Unless we are truthful to self... no matter whom we look
forward to... the happiness we search for always eludes us. We have to follow
the path of absolute truthfulness to stand up and face life again.
nobody can fathom... absolute truths contained in scriptures of all religions
of the world... always remain elusive to the common man! Why? Everything we perceive
in the mortal... the ephemeral world is governed by our senses and the mind. The
absolute truths contained in the sacred scriptures of all religions are beyond
the purview of the senses and the mind
