The Support Of Faith: 31 ►From Top to Bottom

Published: 09.02.2020

Famous actress of Hollywood Shirley MacLaine was very successful in some situations of her journey to life. She reached to the top of material prosperity. She was proud of her success. But once she was restless to come back from that stage of life. Some questions began to whirl in her mind. Who are we? From where we have come? Why we have come? Whether there=is any goal in our life or are we only running here and there meaninglessly? Whether this body is everything or there is something beyond this? What else we do? Why doing so? What is the truth of this life? Whether we are living as per our will or living at the instance of others? Whether we are concerned only with our external life or are we aware of our internal dimensions? These questions perplexed her heart and soul. Material prosperity seemed ineffective to her. One day she moved behind and went out to spiritual journey.

Person going out to spiritual journey cannot remain uninterrupted by body. But he is not also mere body-oriented. He tries to reach to the soul with the support of his nervous system and cellular system. This attempt can be made by anyone provided he is desirous of acquiring and recognizing himself. ‘Anuvrat’ is the first step to awaken that desire. This is a direct initiative to change the attitude by self-restraint and self-discipline. In the sphere of behaviour or in the collective life-style, moral values have their own role: Whenever man sticks firm to self-interest facility, lust, competitive temperament and so-called life-trend on this role, he embodies himself with the culture of devaluation.

He who is seasoned with the devaluating mentality, desperately resolute themselves to reach to the top of material prosperity. But after reaching that stage, once again those is to come back, he is to bring himself down. We may avoid the futile pains of this sort of aggradation and degradation. Alas! Had he the faith on realizing the human values and act accordingly.
