Classic conditioning man comes to the world hard wire in the old brain due to evolution . to protect the body and the proper function ing of the orgamism.this is absolutely nessary,otherwise it will not survive. We humans need this old brain functions. A child as he or she is born this conditioning is activated so that it is safe to recognise the warmth of mother; the food it gets ; the safety the comfort security, soon the attachment is activated ( my mother ) and all the associations starts from the simple need for survival . it .;begets the fear . the attachments. the pain the hurt the anger so the human is already in the trap of suffering with each emotion feeling and thought of self strengthen this centre there is no going back except this potency to free One self by looking in ward by the thought

Love is not sorrow ;or pain? Love is not hurt; or tears Love is not brave or fear; Love is not your or mine; Love is not bread or wine; Love is not country or queen? Love is not illusion or dream; Love is not saint or scholar; Love is not pope or collar; Love is not prayer or sawyer; Love is not work or dollar; Love is not politics or poll; Lore is not sex or rock unroll Love is not to meet or to part;

Love is not cleaver or smart; Love is not to give or to take ? Love is not envy or hate;

Love is not us or they Love is not road or the way; Love is not journey or the end ? Love is not family or friend? Love is not vows or pretend ? Love is not shallow or deep; Love is not search or seeks; Love is not old or new; Love is not for one or few Love is not bible or quran; Love is not gita or gyan; Love is not for poor or for rich; Love is not to give or to ditch; Love is not for me or for you; Love is not asking or to say I do; Love is not right or wrong; Love is not wailing or song ?

One must be wondering what is love then love is when self is not

Her name is Fibi, a tricolour beagle & she came to our family in happy times as a little puppy. We got her from a breeder who had three puppies with him we picked her as she was cute and had a long white mark on her forehead; we brought her in a box with a furry slipper that we rubbed it on the other puppies to get their smell so that she had some comfort of her family.

It was a very happy day we all made up so many names for her in the end she was called Fibi - quite a nice name. We all played with her, she would jump to get the clothes from the line, and she would chase the toy rabbit put on the string round and round. She would hide when we got angry with her. She had all the emotions we human feel she would get angry if stranger came to the door; she would be happy when asked to go for a walk or given food. She would be sad when you told her off she smiled, she barked, would be greedy for food, she has all the emotions we humans feel, yet it was her unconditional love that we felt the most which we humans lack. Now that she is old and her health is failing and it is her time to go on another journey she accepts what life has to offer both good and bad.

We found out that she has cancer of the lungs when we brought her for check up and she has little time left; so we brought her home from the hospital; we tried to make her time with us as a gift to her for her all the love she gave us all, in the end she was loosing her flight for life; she could not eat; food; she loved her food so much; and could not drink. We gave her water with spoon and dropper when the time came for her to go; she knew; she decided to drag her self to the garden and lie under the bushes .we were with her all the time and brought her back in to the house; she went in to the toilet and lied on the cool tiles where she lay. We knew it was coming to the end; so we started to recite holy words in her ear she started say the word Om in reply seven times; and died in peace RIP Fibi.

Topic: Can we discuss 'what is the nature of spirtuality'?

What is being spiritual means? Man through out the ages tried to explain the UN knowable through many ways; unable to touch it; he has to invent many theorises. Ideas totally different from being spitual. They have given a name to life force called soul. And invented theory of spirituality.

Topic: Can we discuss 'what is the nature of spirtuality'?

Being spiritual is. It has to be discovered in daily life in relationship .one cannot define it. We have many ideas and theories books are full from time memorial. That does not help man.

Topic: May we discuss the relationship of science with religion?

Religion and science both start from point of knowing something? and proceed to add more to it. Both being limited and incomplete contain ignorance with in; so is the source of suffering for man. Whereas not knowing is the right place to start and end. Scientist thinks he knows and wants to know more. There is no end to more. A mystic knows that he does not know

So, what is this suffering, that we all share? I think this should be the question, since that is what we all have in common, a what can be overcome.

So the question is can man free him self and hence the world from this ,and that freedom contains all.

Topic: May we discuss the relationship of science with religion?

The self is the common for faith and inquiry. It is the self that has faith, old trick of human mind that carries the basket of hope, faith, and heaven, all the religions have encouraged this a false illusion looking for security. Just like a scientist who is looking for security in knowledge. A true religious sprit or scientific sprit is the freedom to see false as false.

The nature of human mind is to get hurt as it is born of hurt, we are hurt from child hood through family friends and so called relationship; a mind that is hurt cannot but get hurt or hurt others. it is simply doing what it is supposed to do because of lack of love.

One started for walk as usual, few minutes in to the walk one come across her, and she was lying against the wall on the roadside. One could have stepped on her only for a quick reflex one-stepped away from he r as she recoiled and looked. She was about six or seven feet long, we stayed with her for along time and realised that she wanted to cross the road and needed some help so we got some passer by to stop the cars from both directions and encouraged her with a stick to move. After some time she started to move and slowly, with some guidance?s he went into the ditch nearby.

Topic: What is the nature of difference between seeing and the idea of seeing?

Seeing directly or idea of seeing, when one is standing out in the open we do not need idea to tell us that it is raining out side or sun shinning we are in direct contact with it on the other hand when doors and windows are shut and one is inside enclosed, you need an idea to know this, it is same with self knowing. And self-knowledge.

Topic: About intention

Also, another aspect that illuminates the same is that intention psychologically implies time/thought. That which is timeless does not "intend to act", it acts. (mina) So beautifully put. Next question arises is there a relationship of timeless act with the intensions of the mind.

Topic: The movement of the mind

What happens to a drop when it falls into the ocean? What happens to darkness when light is on?

What happens to self when there is timeless? What happens to fragment when it is in the whole?

What happens to emptiness when it is full? What happens to the word when it is gone?

What happens to hurts when suffering ends? What happens to death when it goes in to life? What happens to man?

They come from South Africa without any passport or travel documents. He comes first and takes over the little house they built many years a go; makes sure that nobody else is in the house .he sit and waits for her arrival, and sings in happy tune. Some day latter she arrives .two sit together and fly around the house in happy mood. It was a long journey many thousands miles, not showing any sign of time lag or tired, just so happy to be alive they fill your heart with joy, just to see them fly in and out of balcony some time when it gets very hot they scoop down to the pool and take a sip of water, soon she started to sit for a long time in her little mud house, we talk to each other with whistles. she would answer back when you whistle. They are you guests for a short time .as soon the baby arrives both get very busy getting food for the baby. At night time he sits near by. T hey are my friends swallows. Happiest birds in the world not bigger than your fist.

They must be thousands, and come, when one offers them some food. Some how one of them finds out that there is food, within minutes they come running, take a piece of food and quickly turn around and head home. One does not know how this message is sent out; you can see food disappearing in front of your eyes. They are no bigger then the letter (ant). They never eat food but take the food home. Home is the burrow in the front garden they all live their happly.beside their home lives smaller ants size of (two commas,) they live on the food left out by the big ants. They are so aggressive that if big ant comes near their home they attack legs of the big ants. The bite is pain full so the big ant makes a quick get away. If by chance big ant stays there too long, small ants get hold the leg and don t let go of it. Big ant in pain with small ant holding the leg in mouth; it quickly heads home but does not go in, stays out, until another big ant comes out and helps to drags the small ant off. The leg. This is a drama played in nature, of cooperation and aggression.
