Humans, I think are very curious by nature. We like to know. It’s probably why whodunnits and mystery novels and movies are so popular. We like to analyze, deduce and ultimately find the answer. There’s a feeling of satisfaction at the end. Imagine reading an entire mystery novel that doesn’t reveal anything in the end. Ah, the trauma!
This curiosity is seen in our evolution as well. We are researching and discovering so many things about our planet and our universe. It’s what propels us to move forward.
Curiosity plays a huge part in spiritualism too. We want to know the meaning of life, why we are here, what will happen after we die. We go to astrologists so we can know a bit more about ourselves, our future. Fear of unknown is the crux of it all.
Growing up, I went through my own phase to understand the big questions of life. A friend introduced me to Osho, and I got into Buddhism. It made sense, it was practical, but I was still left with questions. I wondered why all the enlightened beings with answers were born before my time and also in a day and age when it was not easy to record information!
There was still something missing, a clarity, the absoluteness of it all.
But now, because of Swamiji, we finally have THE answers. He solved all the mysteries and gave us the answers on a silver platter! Our very own Spiritual Google 😀
I particularly enjoy reading his books. There’s so much clarity and such interesting stories about sages of the yore and his experiences, and the best part – I know that it is the truth. It’s one of the best feelings in the world, Knowing.
How lucky are we!
I am so grateful to Mother Divine to have let me found Swamiji through his books. I don’t know what I would have been / done without them.
Sometimes my greedy mind laments why I couldn’t have known about him sooner. Better late never, so I’ll try not to complain. Move aside, mind.
So now that we are left with no more questions, its time to put those answers to use and walk the path of self-realization, with trust and faith.
Let’s get on with it then, shall we? 🙂
