WE WAKE UP WITH THE LIGHT AND END WITH THE DARK. IN BETWEEN MANY QUESTIONS ARE BORN, THE QUESTIONS THAT BAFFLE US, WRITES DR. MUSHTAQ CHALKOO
The world is beautiful and the details add to its charm. It is a wonder-box which throws many mysterious questions and equally mysterious answers to reveal the unknown. Where do you start your day from? Probably from the dawn when the light dispels the dark and the day is born. Now imagine for any reasons this phenomenon is rendered dead, we might keep on sleeping. But somewhere the day has to start and the light is important. The majesty of light is endless. There are many words about the light that the human mind kept on learning over the period of evolution. Now you can understand the value of the man behind the bulb. Hats off to him! Light is generous and clear. Human words are many and some are obtuse. Obtuse words create obtuse minds. Obtuse words and obtuse minds together create areas of darkness. Light is clear and never obtuse. Dwell in light and you will be allright. The potencies of the light vary. If you stay in dim light, you may have to have shadow too, but the bright light is shadowless. To understand the true majesty of light you need to understand the endless radiance of the universe and then the continuous radiance of your inner being. This light is the mother that has rocked our cradle all through and through.
Do you want to become the light? You need not to, as you are a part of it, but think that the potency is not the same thing as its actualisation. It needs something to come from anything. Look at that egg, the white oval room, windowless and doorless that is hatched to a reality out. Where does that egg come from? If it is not in the egg, it is not in its actualisation. The egg comes from the hen and where does the hen come from. Again from that egg. And the ultimate egg or the hen, where do they come from. May be there are no answers to ultimate questions. Yet we want to understand. Don't we? Yes, but what is understanding? It must be nothing, but the rays of light that illumine, illumine what? The state of your being. From what to what? From being less illumined to being more illumined. Why is it important? Because it is the way of light. Such is the evolutionary path of light, until it becomes perfectly realised. What does that mean? That means the end of the story of light. Does that mean the end of the story of the universe? Of course!!.and then what? and then there are no ‘’whats’’? We understand everything because we are part of everything. No questions and no answers. When the universe arrives at the point of the self realisation of light there will be no problems of any kind.
Human consciousness is a marvel of the creation of light. It is genius and has extraordinary depth. This marvel has to travel a long way. It is evolutionary and keeps unravelling many myths with the time. What may seem absolute to the human mind is actually the beginning of another relative path and so on and so forth. The total absolute is where he might land one day and merge with that apogee of light.
Meanwhile as the time is on and the day has to end and the dark will envelop again, let us cultivate that enlightenment, for we don’t know what ultimate enlightenment is and possess only the faith of it. Let us anticipate good and great things to come and seek the great peace within, which is available to all of us to achieve that cherished dream. Aameen.
