History Is The Autobiography of Time …
ਇਤਿਹਾਸ ਸਮੇਂ ਦੀ ਆਤਮਕਥਾ ਦਾ ਨਾਂ ਹੈ।
इतिहास समय की आत्मकथा का नाम है।

Self-Analysis is not an element of, essence of, but, a synonym of Religion.

    True! That’s a cute pic….

    never try to teach an idiot … s/he’s an idiot for a reason. learning is like a habit, really addictive one. on the other hand an idiot believes that he know everything or at the least s/he knows more than the person s/he’s talking to so can/will never learn.
    Deepi that’s the tragedy that most of the teachers are no-good.
    Learning brings Happiness with it. we have made learning a job – a heavy, boring job. Teacher have the attitude of “Because, I said so” that no kid can like. the need is to “Explore Together”, when you lose that feeling of wonderment nothing is possible.
    While doing Theatre i learnt a lot from kids, that was going to be my topic for the thesis, ‘Remedial Theatre’, that’s what teaching/learning is – remedial, solace for the soul.
  • Gemmy Sandhu
    Remedial Theatre….hmmmmm….that sounds interesting Dalvir.
  • Dalvir Gill
    all the plays i directed were remedial to the cast, i used to say that if you don’t grow spiritually then there’s no sense in putting a play together. that’s why i loved doing theatre with kids, it was always such an easier access. bachche rabb daa roop hi nhin aap hi rabb hn.
  • Hardeep Deepi
    I never felt that teaching is a challenging job.It seems to be easy only to the people who have an aptitude for it and there is no place to hide for those teachers who don’t have it.Nothing is more obvious in this world than a bad teacher
  • Vijindar Singh so superb post Gill Sahb !!

Religion without Celebration

Without celebration religion is a mere corpse.

ਧਰਮ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਉਤਸਵ ਦਾ ਤੱਤ ਕੱਢ ਦਿਓ ਤਾਂ ਪਿੱਛੇ ਸਿਰਫ਼ ਇੱਕ ਲਾਸ਼ ਹੀ ਬਚਦੀ ਹੈ।

उत्सव रहित धर्म एक शव मात्र है l

Culture and Civilization
Cannot, really, co-exist.
In fact, they are poles apart.

Vir, I am unfamiliar with Zoka, forgive my ignorance
(google was no help other than to point out Zoka Coffee Roasters and Tea Co. and a Bar in Pine Colorado )

Zoka is the the untamed, unpredictable, creative power of the universe; her continuum of creation, and transformation. I’ll try to find some material and share with you.

Zoka is the creative life force in nature. In haiku it is the source of kigo and the implied, unsaid energy

I always call it the creative/destructive force. Looking through the “Non-Dual” glasses death and birth are one;

‘Transforming Force’ sounds better. ( Only if that huge meteor/dwarf-planet had not hit the earth, leaving her to spin on an tilted axis! )

There’s a misconception about Hinduism; that of it being a polytheistic religion. There holy trinity of Brahma ( Creation ), Vishnu ( Sustenance ) and Shiva ( Destruction ) is just three manifestation of the same Force – OM ( Zoka ).

The Biblical/Western thought is that God created (past participle ) but Taoist/Eastern believe that “He” is creating/transforming it every second, not that once the creation was “over” He rested.

BTW Vir, Orthodox Jewish thought shares with you the belief that creation is an ongoing process, in which we are partners. Indeed it is our belief that the world is constantly being created. If the process were to stop even for an instant the world would not only cease to exist, it would in fact never have existed.

That brings us to the next thing that “Haiku is the poetry of “Now” .” as it can be deduced from your statement that

there is only one ( Indivisible ) Eternal Moment.

Never Become, Just BE

Never Become, Just BE

Just Self-Improvement, Selfishly,

Instead of working towards an improved society,
focus on Self-Improvement.

समाज-सुधारक बनने की बजाए स्वं सुधारक बनने को अग्रसर रहो।

Religion vs. Spirituality

Religion teaches us morality. ( Whereas )
Spirituality –
a way to go

Religion Hijacked Morality

Because of this hijack of morality by Religion,
Amoral Life/Society was made farhter ( not just further ) impossible to be practiced, that’s why on
so-called-theists/atheists/atheists/anti-theists even the concept of Morality is lost and all their Intuitive Power is confused so that the outcry/outcome is witnessed in their futile efforts to live a life definitively anti-moral; which is against their basic & fundamental Nature. what a tragedy, indeed… there’s no coming out of IT
