Newton’s Laws and Spirituality


The third law of Newton says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And this is immediate and instant. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size but opposite in direction. And all this is again objective and material

Let us look into this law spiritually. When you do good, you may feel good. And when you do bad, you may feel bad. And this too can be immediate and instant. But this is individual and subjective. And this is spiritual. I can not force my good and my bad on the other. You may feel bad when you abuse your son or daughter for no reason at all. You may later on feel guilty for this behavior. You may repent for this action. You may rethink on all this. And this experience can have a transforming effect. This is subjective and individual. And all this depends on an individual’s empathy neurons. 

One of the best presidents of America, Abraham Lincoln, says, “When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion”. This may be a religion to him. But the same may not be true for others. This is individual and subjective. We can not force this on the humanity. This has to be spiritual

We can only force on the humanity the laws of the land. And a law is not love. When there is no love, the law is needed. And when there is love, there is no need of any law. And love is a higher law. Love is a supreme law. The love of the divine is supreme. Buddha called this Dhamma. And this is spiritual

The above law is like the law of Karma. Karma means doing. Doing means an action. Even non-action means doing and is an action. And every action has a consequence. And every individual is responsible for the consequences of his action. The consequences can be either immediate or some time later. Nobody knows when. And nobody can predict. It is uncertain. And the consequences can be either good or bad. And good and bad are relative things. What is good to me need not be good to you. And what is bad to me need not be bad to you. This is again individual and subjective

Let us again look into the second law of Newton spiritually. Let us presume that every individual who is a unit of mass becomes spiritual like that of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mahavira, Osho, etc. Now just imagine the spiritual force and spiritual power on the earth!! Can you just imagine what will happen if this spiritual power becomes a social power

Can we reckon this spiritual power as a social power? The whole planet earth would be a heaven then. Otherwise, the third world war is not very far. The survival of the toughest and fittest is an old adage. The survival of the wisest has to be a new adage. We have to move from the Dark Age to an Enlightened Age. And all this can be only by our choice. And all this can only be by design and not by default.

Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.
There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.
Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The though…

A Mathematical Expression of Enlightened Leadership

I was just wondering if Enlightened Leadership can really be expressed by way of a mathematical expression. An object is a subset of a subject. There is no reason why it can not be expressed. There has to be a way to express it mathematically. The whole objective reality can be expressed mathematically. I really do not find a problem anywhere. 
There are two dimensions to the existence. One is a horizontal dimension that exists in time. The whole of history, Itihasas, and the Puranas are part of it. And all these are full of symbolic and non-symbolic expressions. The other is a vertical dimension which does not exist in time. No matter we do what, this can never be expressed in terms of mathematics. This can be expressed only by way of metaphors. The Vedas and Upanishads are expressions of this timeless dimension. 
It is utterly wrong to say that the door of the divine does not exist for a person who thinks in terms of mathematics. No, existence does not behave it that way. There has…

The Mahabharata - In a Nutshell

There are three great characters in the Mahabharata. All the other characters are just by-products of these three characters. Duryodhana, Arjuna, and Krishna are these three main and great characters. To me, Duryodhana represents the Unconscious. He is a metaphor for the Unconscious. Arjuna represents the Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Conscious. And Krishna represents the Supreme Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Supreme Conscious. He is representing the Supreme Consciousness. When the ray of the Supreme Consciousness passes through the prism of the mind, the prism of the mind manifests the Supreme Consciousness, as the Consciousness and the Unconsciousness.
To make things simple, let us understand this by way of an example. Let us suppose that the Unconsciousness is like darkness and the Consciousness is like the light. And the one that joins these two and still remains beyond is called the Supreme Consciousness. According to the psychologists the Unconsciousness is far far b…
