My schooldays were over. I had a very short college life and that’s when i entered this chaotic phase of my life. I started questioning and doubting all the fundamentals i believed so far. Religions too were a part of them.

A couple of years back, in my church when they asked me teach the Sunday school children, the story of Adam and Eve,

I said, “No. I can’t”.

They,”Why don’t you?”.

I said, “No. I don’t believe that story anymore for it looks like a cartoon story. How could i teach something, that even i don’t believe?”.

“What the hell do you mean?”,  now the tone was different and I could see certain eyes were getting red.

“I don’t mean anything, I just question. How there was so much wisdom entrapped in a fruit?? Just by eating that how did Adam and Eve became the wisest of all creatures and the first sinners of the human race?”.

“Don’t you question the word of the lord. They are holy secrets”.

I replied saying,”There are no secrets. If there are, they are meant to be revealed”

My church elders cursed me, “How dare you deny the very truth of the lord. It is written in the holy book and the whole world believes it. How do you deny it, little Moron”.

I said, “I don’t question the presence of Lord or Satan. Let’s assume that I believe their presence, but how could  a simple fruit make the whole human race filled with seeds of sin?”

“What the hell do you think, might have happened then?”.

I replied, “I guess, Eve must’ve had an intercourse with Satan (if there was somebody called Satan). Hence there was the seed of sin. In such case we are all heirs of Satan, not of the Lord your God”.

They must’ve really found it Chaotic.

Well,

Some say, “You are different”.

Some say, “You are abnormal”.

Some say, “You are chaotic”.

Very few say, “You are nothing”… and I prefer that.

P.S. : No religious sarcasm intended. Discussions are very welcomed and appreciated.

Pebble #6 : Inner Peace…

My friend Prasanna’s blog post about Inner Peace made me write this one.

INNER PEACE…

How did you feel when you read that phrase? What was your first cut thought? What flashed in your mind when you read it?

Lemme Guess…

Buddha? A mountain or a natural scenery? Kung-Fu Panda? A child’s innocent face? Or your own self?

Whatever it is you are completely alright… unless you felt like hitting me 😛

People choose so many paths in pursuit of peace. Many choose religions / spirituality. Few choose certain relationships. Few choose art forms. And very few choose or destined with solitude.

At times INNER PEACE is all about the choices we make. We can choose to be at peace… Yeah it works for very few people, but yet it needs clarity on your thoughts.

Perhaps, peace is never a choice many a times. What do we do then??

Embracing Love can be a better way to have peace eternally. Along with Love if you have little clarity, then that’s the icing on the cake. Imagine the moments of peace, Love and Clarity brought to you.

And my inner says, Inner peace can never exist without Love and Clarity.

Life of a Lunatic…

Well my life is,

“A pendulum between bliss and chaos”.
