Understanding god

God is a variant. There is neither any form nor any gender to almighty. I believe it is some unique belief, which is subjective for everyone that is called god. That is the one thing you will trust completely.

To some, it’s their religious idols, to some its their own parents, to rest, their teachers, friends, philosophers, pets and nature among others. There can be so many variants in that.

But then, I  also see a god in a newly born baby’s innocent smile, in my parents who support me through thick and thin, in my gurus who have taught me everything, in my friends who have constantly listened to me, and the like.

Spiritual beliefs

I only believe that good things will happen if you act good. It is as simple as bearing the results of your deeds.

Spiritual practices

 For me, learning music and understanding lyrical content for the sake of art gives me with cues to so many unanswered questions of life.

Miracles

I haven’t experienced one myself to say what. But I guess a miracle can be experienced when ones thoughts are aligned to their action.

Meditation

Meditation could mean many things to many people. And I think, it is the highest mode of being focused and staying so.

Pilgrimages

There are so many pligrimage spots that are my favourites. But to name a few — Mantralaya, Nanganallur Anjaneya Temple.

These spots also could mean my home, and a random walk along the beach.

These are places unlikely to be called pilgrimage spots, but there is a sense of calm that takes over, when I find myself there.
