Absence of Love - Root cause of all sufferings

Sometimes it takes a lifetime to realize the meaning of something. Love is one such thing. You know millions just live and die even without seeing the tip of the iceberg of so called love. Its said that there is only form of energy in this whole of universe, and that's love. Either love is there or its absent. That one energy form transforms and transmutate into all the positive forms and energy and the absence if it take the form and energy of all negative aspects. Hate, fear everything is the absence of love.

The very purpose of our life is to realize love. I took the word realize because, it cannot be understood or comprehended. It has to be realized or experienced. We get the glimpses of it every now and then in our day to day experiences. Mother and Guru are close living experiences of love. Its not a highly complex thing. Its what we all are. Its so close, rather we are that, its that simple, but still we fail to experience it. We oversee it. We are made of love. There is nothing beyond love.But still we fails. Love is the only truth. Its the present moment. Its the now. Not in the past;nor in the future. But still we fails.

What I understand is that, because of the development of technology, we have completely become blind. We teach our children science, maths, computers etc. But we fail to teach them love. We completely ignored it. If at there is a root cause for any problem in this world, its because of the absence of love.

Clean Up Year - 2017


Some how, by seeing the things happening around the world, I have a gut feeling that collective consciousnesses has entered into a cleanup mode. Many institutions and people around the world, which have been nurtured because of the negative ambiance have started facing the heat. The "Agni Pareeksha" has begun. Many will get burnt and become ashes in the process. Institutions, people with values will start getting noticed and will come to the limelight for the first time after so many tiresome years of negativity. The fall will be the catchword. And in the process, finer things will crystallize for the better.

Drive

t has been about two yeas that I have started driving from Chenganur to Malayalapuzha and back daily. Close to sixty kilometers a day. In the initial days, I justified my decision of buying a diesel car because the monthly commutation would anyway come more than 1500 km a month and  a people say its only economical if you have more than 1200 KMs to commute per month. But even then, it pricked me at the back of my heart that I am spending too much on daily commutation and moreover becoming a reason for the increasing carbon footprint and in turn for the haphazard climatic change happening globally. So as an initial step I started driving car with least fuel consumption. car gurus usually says with few tips you can increase the mileage of the car by over 20%. I am experimenting. Also in a short period of time, I may find some way to stop this long distance driving business and find an alternate way of settling down. I have sent my wishes to the universe and now its duty to respond. Since the condition of my lower back is also deteriorating, I may soon choose an auto gear shift car which will reduce the burden on my back and the knees while applying clutches especially in bumper to bumper traffic. I have kept my eyes on the recently launched Ignis of Maruti- the AMT version. Also I may switch back to the petrol version of the car considering the pollution factor, and decreasing margin between the price of petrol and diesel in India.

Made in Japan to Made in China

There was a time, when we see the tag "Made in Japan" on a product, we have a feeling that quality of the product is assured. That status was only for Japanese products. How did they develop that? They developed it through strict quality processes through which their product undergo. The range of quality tests which are conducted for the product for the expected and the unexpected conditions
through which the product may operate is so wide that their products excelled in performance, reliability, compactness and easy to use. When such a high standard of quality is expected, then the quality has to start at every level of product development. It includes, the planning, designing, materials used, levels of automation, people involved etc and the rigorous testing through which the product undergoes. Thus came the great japanese products from Toyota, Suzuki, Hitachi, Sony, sharp, Nissan and list goes on.

But the problem is that, when there is such a strict product development process, the cost of the product will naturally go up.Thus came the competition from Chinese market.Along with that one more change happened.Product life reduced because technology started evolving very fast and companies need to release updated product in short time periods. Products started becoming obsolete so fast. Also the purchasing power of the consumers also changed. Consumers wanted newer
versions of the product and they dont expect that the product will last life long and they are ready to spend more for upgradation. So companies were forced to reduce the cost even by compromising on quality and reliability.so manufacturing slowly started moving to China where the labor is cheaper and quality standards are lower which is the perfect match for the manufacturing industry and thus came the new tag "Made in China"
