Maya versus Reality (Hinduism)

Introduction: A lot of Sadhus tend to reject the realm of the material, stating that it is an illusion. This is not what Hinduism recommends. Rejecting the world is nothing but NIHILISM, a bitter philosophy that is nothing but a failure.

*MAYA VERSUS REALITY*

We are here on this planet for a finite amount of time...

and consequently this world is called maya/illusion, by Hindus.

Because as per Hinduism, anything that is temporary is MAYA. Illusion.

Our possessions are illusions.

Even our bodies are illusions.
Because only something ETERNAL, something that will last forever - only such a thing - it's existence is not disputable.

All temporary things

their existence is disputable

after they cease to exist, after they dissolve, do they exist?
except in memory

which is arbitrary, illusory, fleeting

So that's what its about. Something REAL can only be something ETERNAL.


which will forever be available

to remove all doubts of its existence

to remove all doubts of its qualities








Who are/were you?
before your father and mother conceived you?

Uriah Heep found his eternal thing...


Deep Purple looks for the eternal in the echoes of the past...

Some advice



“Perhaps all anxiety might derive from a fixation on moments — an inability to accept life as ongoing.”

Good and evil flow as an integrated unit?

Good and evil, fortune and misfortune, do they flow as an integrated unit?

An idea that I have been wondering about for a long time now.

An interesting quote by Alan Watts, a man who has studied many forms of philosophy formally, has an endless number of degrees in the subject:

"The whole process of nature is an integrated process of immense complexity, and it’s really impossible to tell whether anything that happens in it is good or bad — because you never know what will be the consequence of the misfortune; or, you never know what will be the consequences of good fortune."


In his book the Tao of Physics, physicist Fritjof Capra explains esoteric philosophies (Chinese and Indian).

One particular chapter in it, "THE UNITY OF OPPOSITES" caught my attention.

Zoom Out




zoom in on the demons
focus on the demons
and they occupy your whole canvas
zoom out and you'll see
there's beautiful magic all around
no rush
life begins
everyday

Have demons occupied your life?
No
Only your perspective
Only your vision

You'll snap out of it
no rush
life begins
everyday

Past is irrelevant
don't let the tail
wag the dog

Don't drive
looking in the rear view mirror

Look into it only once in a while
to guide you
