The Quest of Man January 4, 2014

The quest of man has been in his three dimensions: 1) his physical being 2) his
mental being 3) his emotional being.

Man’s first and foremost problem has been that of
sheer physical existence. In the past as well today the cruel forces of nature kept him
worried as to how to preserve his own existence. After some time, all human efforts to
preserve human life become deadly enemies of man’s existence. For example, mankind
created the atomic and the hydrogen bombs, and now they have turned out like deadly
monsters. He created many human institutions like kingdoms and states to free himself
from the fear of destruction for the whole human race. All his efforts were in vain though.

One could understand his fear from forces which were not human, but today man is
faced with the fear of destruction from his own fellow human beings. So he is experiencing
fear itself, and created by himself. The all-out effort to establish security for human life has
potentially created insecurities of an explosive nature.

Man’s need for physical enjoyment
has driven him to another extreme position where he has learned that no amount of
physical enjoyment results in joy (Ananda). On the contrary, human life fills with
unbearable tensions and frustration. The so-called affluent countries have the maximum
number of frustrated, desperate, sickened human beings. (more…)


What is fun? July 22, 2012

Innocence is the way you really give fun to others, create the fun part of it.  The fun is created only through innocence and innocence is the only way you can really emit also the fun. 

Imagine this world without any fun, what would happen? 

But people are very much confused between fun and the pleasure.  The pleasure is nice to begin with and horrible to end with.

But fun is a treasure. Anything that is full of fun you remember all your life.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Who is a true friend? The quote which says it all. February 2, 2012

Friendship is a popular topic, a lot has been said about it. I found a quote which seems to express it short and best:


An interesting Mahatma Gandhi saying May 20, 2011

“To see the universal and all-pervading Spirit of Truth face to face one must be able to love the
meanest of creation as oneself. And a man who aspires after that cannot afford to keep out of any
field of life.

That is why my devotion to Truth has drawn me into the field of politics; and I can say
without the slightest hesitation, and yet in all humility, that those who say that religion has nothing
to do with politics do not know what religion means.”

– Mahatma Gandiji, autobiography.

I find it very interesting, especially in connection with my earlier post on Daneel Andreev’s quote about love to evil which is only a highly enlightened soul is able to:In the distant future even more spiritual possibilities will arise. Even love for demons will become viable and necessary. History has already seen some saints who grew to such a love. ”

Wonders December 26, 2010

Man looks for wonders; if he only saw how very wonderful is the heart of man!


There is no source of happiness other than the heart of man.


He who makes room in his heart for others, will himself find accommodation everywhere.


There is no greater phenomenon than love itself.


Love develops into harmony, and of harmony is born beauty.


In beauty is the secret of divinity.


The words of widsom by Hazrat Inayat Khan


A real friend is the one… May 25, 2010

who knows the song of your heart. And who will remind you of it even when you yourself have forgotten…

Whoever told that must be a genius! I just love the saying.

And I have to admit… one of my biggest desires is to be a real friend to everyone.

I really want to know the songs of my friend’s hearts and to be able to remind them of it.

This blog – is my humble contribution to this mission.

LOVE, axinia
