OUT OF FOCUS
AGAIN OUT OF FOCUS
Of all the living beings that are sharing this universe with us we humans have the faculty of discrimination called the Intellect (Buddhi). The plant life has only ability to respire, while animal life has the capability to breathe and also think. Only mankind is gifted with the facility to analyze the good and bad along with thinking and breathing. This aptitude has made man to be the best creature ever. But sometimes our intellect acts too very smart and will hamper our growth.
There are many questions like “Who we are?” and “Why are we here?” the answer for which only intellect has the capacity to search for. In the search for answers to those questions an individual primary would want to know the Truth. Truth is comprehensible only from certain wavelength. The intellect which has the limited capacity to comprehend has to be satisfied with what is clear to it, if it goes on to scrutinize more, Truth gets distorted. Just like how a lens man has to stop adjusting the focus cam when he has got a clear image of the object he wishes to capture in his camera. If he tries to rotate the focus cam even after the vision is crystal clear he will only blur the image again and stand at square one.
Many ancient seers and philosophers like Buddha, Mahaveera, Moses, Christ, Mohammad, Sri Sri Sankara, Srimad Ramanuja, Sriman Madhva and many many more have apprehended Truth in many scriptures and set them in an AUTO-FOCUS mode to help the seekers to get the experience of it by contemplation, but the modern day masters have not stopped from meddling with the focus cam. These kinds of acts by the modern day philosophers and revealers of Truth have confused their disciples or the seekers and have intimidated them about knowing the Truth. This has made the Life Coach, Self Motivators, Career Launchers to preach agnosticism.
There is a saying that the source (Moola) of certain things should not be pore over, though many rationalist believe that it was said so because there was no Truth and hence it is futile to search for it. Here the Perverted Intellect stands in the way of realizing the Truth.Truth is attainable not by analyzing or scrutinizing about it but can be experienced by taking a diving deep into it and becoming one with it. This is possible only if the seeker has completely disowned the tendency of his Intellect to investigate and search for the lapses. If the seeker has over the years developed the irresistible love to know about it he will definitely experience Truth in its full grandeur.
Perverted Intellect (Viparita Bhuddhi) is always an obstacle for any kind of knowing. It is a hindrance to Spiritual Growth. Contemplation on the knowledge can help but investigation get us nowhere.........
