On the route to greater acheivement...

Posted by Tandarin Nike Thursday, May 27, 2010 3:15 AM
Dr. Edward Bach was a British Physician who began to see disease as an end product, a final stage, a physical manifestation of unhappiness, fear and worry. He therefore began to look to nature to find healing flowers. Over a period of years, Dr. Bach found 38 healing flowers and plants that, with the right preparation, became the 38 Bach Flower Essences. These Essences are enough to cover all the negative emotional states that are possible.

While explaining the effects of his flower remedies, he said that “The Flower remedies act as catalysts which help to reestablish contact between the Soul and Personality. The personality caught up in the confusion and restriction that is only human, finds a way out again, back to the soul qualities that gives meaning to our existence on this planet and brings universal harmony.” These flower remedies are used by millions today to heal themselves by effecting behavioral changes.

This leads to healing of physical illnesses too, since a majority of these illnesses are psychosomatic in nature. It was very unfortunate that Dr. Bach died very early after creating The Bach Flower Remedies bringing health, joy and happiness in people’s lives. He was one of the very few who was aware of and totally lived by the directions of his soul. I am sure if he had lived a bit more he could have given us the meaning of life and provided an insight and answers to many questions.

I interpret the soul as some genes/DNA which was put in place by our designers, which direct our lives towards some objective, which I or for that matter nobody yet knows. It could have been a normal hum drum objective of making us slaves to these techno designers, or it could it have been a greater objective of exploring the universe and mapping habitable planets?

What I suggest is based on anthropological and physical evidence, interpreted in a different manner. Plodding further into the unknown, these genes/strands of DNA then could be said “to be immortal” like the soul described in our scriptures, as they are perpetuated from generation to generation.

These genes affect each generation differently as they are passed on, because the environment in which the individual is born and brought up dictates the personality.

Latest research on Spindle cells makes interesting reading at this point. These genes or the inner voice, or the soul’s voice, therefore affect individual people possibly by conflicting with their learned behavior patterns. Dealing in the realms of the unknown, possibly at some stage these particular genes are no longer passed on. Is it the liberation of our souls as the ancients put it? There are many questions with a very few answers.

We do understand at least one objective that is, the continuation of our species, which our human system designers put in place. These system designers were possibly intelligent beings when we observe the unexplained jumps in evolution and the sudden full stops in anthropological history.

These are very pertinent evolutionary facts discarded by scientists as they do not fit into their well established theories, which may be true for every species in the universe. I do not for one moment believe that we are the products of evolution alone.

Speculatively, there must be data about our past locked up somewhere in our genetic structure which may form part of our memory system. There must be some DNA which is passed on uninterrupted to ensure this. Possibly we do not have the key to unlock it yet. Perhaps we may have a built in communication system which will become active only on attainment of universal harmony.

This means we have to grow inwards to such an extent that we learn to recognize and live by the directions emanating from within us. Possibly thereafter we may learn our mission and the meaning of the Universe itself. If for example, we look at and interpret the Mahabharata, the Ramayana with a changed perspective, then one sees from chapter to chapter and verse to verse how much sense it makes even to our limited extent of knowledge and understanding.

If one really keeps an open mind while reading and studying the remains of our distant past, then a glimmer of comprehension that lights up will soon progress to a light of a thousand suns.

I personally feel that at least some if not all of us, should start the search for our inner self. We must discard every learned behavior, social or religious bindings or domestication, we must discard restrictions of any sort on our personality and we should start living only by the dictates of the inner self.

There may be various ways of doing this, but as I understand from my experience, the start is to disregard outside inputs, sit quietly and do nothing. This doing nothing can be 20 minutes at a time, multiple times in a day. Slowly the inner self will start taking over our being as the restriction of our thoughts is removed. Let the thoughts come and go and at some stage they will cease. Once they stop our true self will take over from within us. For our thoughts are the products of our domestication, our taught and learned behaviors.

From my personal experience the inner self taking over for a few minutes every day, has created a profound change within me.

Sharing just one example: Things, people, circumstances which were once very important to me, I would say were the meaning of my existence, have receded into nothingness from my thinking mind. Yet the joy of still having them with me remains. It is like having a thing but not possessing it, so there is never a sadness of loss but always joy of letting go.

This has resulted in a new awakening of awareness and self realization though at a very elementary level. I am sure at some stage the inner directive from our genes will take over and the concerned individual will know from that point on, exactly what is required to be done.

It will take time to remove our internal blocks but it will happen one day. Further the act of letting our senses and our domesticated being free from our real time control for some time every day, will in itself, be an act of rejuvenation and joy, possibly the finding of our true self. Those who do so, I think will grow beyond the limits of imagination.

Grow to be really free of all bindings, intellectual, emotional or physical, yet with a seeping in of the joy of life and the discovery of their true selves and there mission.

The earth cannot sustain this civilization in perpetuity. One of our internal programs is the continuation of our species, it does not mean by reproduction alone.

It also means a search for places to survive beyond our solar system, beyond the milky-way and to go where no man has gone before. To that end we have to seek answers from within us. To seek the data our genes may have stored for us, to unlock it and to find the meaning of our existence and possibly individual objectives, and also possibly the collective objectives for which our species was designed for.

One thing I am very sure about, our mission statement and the data of our origins resides within us. Once that is clear we will not need to grope about the vast universe but will know precisely and with clarity as to where and how we have to go and what we have to achieve. It is very sad to see that with the present state of this earth’s civilization, we are not even near the start line of this awareness.

Soon this human species is likely to extinguish itself in its own ignorance and the blatant misuse of its five sense organs which probably were designed for some greater achievements.

    Excellent!..... I dont know if you have read Jiddu Krishnamurti, but your thoughts are so very close in core meanings to his thoughts!

    Yes, the Bach flower therapy is vastly used for the benefit of ental patients including Schizzophrenia!

    Thats not my post. Its my son's post which he accidently posted on my blog as I was logged in. You can see that post at www.worldofalok.blogspot.com. He normally writes tech posts which are quite interesting. Do have a look.

    Thanks!!! Bhavaji and Shivani. I am happy both of you liked my post. This took me quite a while to compile and make it presentable.

  6. Thought(s) of an old man Says:

    Yes, it certainly must have taken a lot of time for you to 'make it presentable' because of all your previous ones this post is not only simply presentable but also carries a lot of weight and value for those who are eagarly involved in self discovery. Your idea of genes containg the 'spirit'(Atman?) carries a lot of water.

    Keep it up
