Good or bad…..
a concept of this world.
all actions are from the human mind.
and human mind is neither good or bad.
it is a mixture.
man has freewill,an option to do good or bad.
but this is limited,
by intra psychic factors(personal conditioning/prejudices,basic instincts,genetics)
and by the extrapsychic,the fact that mind cant exist in vaccum without incorporating its surrounding beliefs or knowledge.
but by incorporating or exposing to an enviorment which stimulate good deeds,
aperson can turn his freewill in favour of good deeds…then it is not an absolute freewill .
since God has foreknowledge,everything must be predestined.
If everything is predestined,man is not a free animal.
and the freedom is a freedom of an animal in a cage.
it is the cage of illusion of the free will.
it is a cage of good and bad,
ir is a cage between the birth and death.
it is a cage of the body and mind.
it is a cage of” my own” world.
And it may not be rigid,
It can expand or shrink to a certain extent,
it is a cage under the visual field of the God,the suprem being.
(A stream has the freedom to flow but only through the predestined path)
Irish theologian John Scottus Eriugena wrote that God’s predestination should be equated with his foreknowledge of people’s choices.A person may have multiple choices and it gives an illussion of free will.But choices are predestined under the foreknowledge of God.
Song lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant song title,Love Hurts(picture courtesy;Aimei Ozaki) Love hurts, love scars, love wounds and mars Any heart not tough or strong enough To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts I'm young, I know, but even so I know a thing or two I learned from you I really learned a lot, really learned a lot Love is like a flame*, it burns you when it's hot Love hurts, ooh-ooh, love hurts Some fools think of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness Some fools fool themselves, I guess, they're not foolin' me I know it isn't true, I know it isn't true Love is just a lie made to make you blue (from the Song "love hurts", lyrics by Boudleaux Bryant)
I saw a revolutionary
He was going to be hanged
I looked into his eyes
I asked him” are you worried?”
He said”Never.I was fighting for an uncorrupted society,for uncorrupted souls”
I asked him again
“Could you withstand the pain”
“I may cry due to the physical pain
but not from my soul”
I can hear the music…..
“Climbing up on Solsbury Hill
I could see the city light
Wind was blowing, time stood still
Eagle flew out of the night
He was something to observe
Came in close, I heard a voice
Standing stretching every nerve
Had to listen had no choice
I did not believe the information
just had to trust imagination
My heart going boom boom boom
“Son,” he said “Grab your things,
I’ve come to take you home.”
(From,Solsbury Hill,Peter Gabriel)”.
Do I have a soul
If I Have….
Is it a deeper dimension of being
deeper to mind
as mind exist in thoughts,(cognition)
soul exist in soul particles
soul particles are like a kind of vibration
It can carry some consciousness
This consciousness persists after our bodies die and decay into their constituent atoms
I don’t believe that human beings are “simply” collections of atoms evolving and interacting according to rules laid down in the Standard Model of particle physics
There is a possibility that a completely new realm of reality obeying very different rules than the ones we know.
Carl Young’s concept of collective unconsciousness is interesting
other than the personal unconsciousness,a collective unconsciousness realm exists.
All newborn babies seek and suck the mother’s breast without any teaching
For Them,the mother exist even before their birth, in their unconscious realm….
Honeybees in India and in Africa makes honeycomb in similer pattern
eventhough they never had a chance to exchange the knowledge
I believe that the consciouness exist in some form outside the mind to carry some knowledge which are innate.

Let me be in the Now,and here,
There is a “power”,
it is the power of being in my real self,uncorrupted by past or future,
It is the power in the present,in this moment.
The only moment that is significant is the present –
Nothing exists except the “now” ,
The past is gone and the future has not yet arrived,
I want to be fully aware, is to live in the here & now
I am relieved from the past …..
And not worrying about the future,
Let me be here…..
I dont want to focus on my past mistakes,
or engage in endless resolutions and plans for the future.
This was my a pattern of thinking…a cognitive habit….
so,let me be here……
I dont want to disown my real self,
I love swiftly flowing streams,
I want to put my mask,in this stream…..
I dont want to become what I am not
Let me live here…now
because,I hate stagnation,
I want to flow into my own being
Let me reown my self,
Let me rejoice…here and now.
A person exists by differentiating self from other
And by connecting self & other.
These are the two functions of a boundary.
The boundary between self & environment must be permeable to allow for exchanges,
yet firm enough to enable autonomous action.
Firm, because it gives a sense of identity.
When the boundary becomes unclear,
It leads to identity confusion,
mental & emotional disturbances.
