June 09 - Day of Relationship

If you were to feel connected with your wife or your husband and if you know the art of experiencing your spouse, then there will be no need to separate. That is what should happen to you in your life. Otherwise families are going to break up and it’s going to lead to the death of the civilisation. So separating and breaking apart is not the solution. We have to make families survive which means people should learn to experience each other and derive joy out of that relationship. That is the only hope for mankind. The families dissolve and disappear; civilisation too would dissolve and disappear. Unless the family is held intact, the individual would go to pieces. The individual should go to pieces, the civilisation too would get fragmented and ultimately disappear.

He would go to pieces because he would be missing his mother’s love, his father’s attention, the care and concern which he derives from his parents would not be there, he would begin to feel very lonely, he would lose his identity, and he would have to take recourse to various ways of protecting himself from his loneliness. When loneliness is into you, you escape through various forms of entertainment, drugs, alcohol, sex, crime and what not. All these would ultimately lead to his break up as an individual. And such a being would ultimately lead to the fragmentation of society and civilisation itself. The society or civilisation is nothing but its individuals.

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
