Do we Time Travel???

     At times, we all do time travel in our imagination. Most of us dream about the future, sometimes about the painful past and fewer times about the good times in our past!! Apart from our future and past, do we time travel to a different time period??? Yes, we do! Have you ever thought about the triggering factors in such time travelling??

     From my experience, the masterpieces of human art are one of the most powerful factors that can make us time travel. For example, James Cameron took us to a different world through his masterpiece "Avatar" (2009 Film). The masterpiece sculptures have the same power as well!

     Nature also has the power to make us time travel! In one of my previous blogs, I penned down my time travelling (pausing) experience through this conversational blog!

     The third and most crucial factor is our imagination. Even though imagination plays a vital role in the above two scenarios; those were triggered imaginations and were highly influential either by the masterpiece or nature. Whereas our imagination at times randomly takes us to a different period; our human intelligence is a chaotic algorithm, which is yet beyond our science and computational advancements.

How life gets balanced???

     Have you ever seen someone who consistently lives a smooth life?? Even though it all comes down to our perspective towards the life and the flow of life; in a way we all are emotional. It doesn't matter whether one is a believer or atheist! 

     We all know that life is a blend of ups & downs, success & failure, love & hatred, peace & violence and so on. I look into life in terms of numbers! Assume the +ve numbers are the ups and -ve numbers are the downs in our life. ...,-3,-2,-1, 0, 1,2,3,... It is hard for us to stay in the ZERO state.

     From my observation, nature always tries to balance our life. Think about your life!! Your successes and failures, in my language, your +ves and -ves!! You will always see a balance. It is true that there is always a silence before the storm! A downfall before the victory!

     Few years ago, there used to be a man, who never did any good deeds in his life! His life was so complicated than anyone else! When he was a kid, he gave trouble to his parents, teachers and anyone associated with him. Once married, he got addicted to alcohol and drugs. He was a bad husband and a worst father; in few years, when his child was eight years old, he died out of drug overdosage!

     In this example, do you think his life was balanced??? In few occasions, we come across such people, where either their life is filled with a lot of positives or just negatives!! Why??? In the above-quoted example, this man made a huge impact on his family and surroundings. The people who knew him decided not to get into any addictions; because, they clearly saw what that would cause. Look at him in this angle, he helped a lot of people to live a good life! Doesn't it make him a HERO?? HERO!? It is not just our life. We are part of the bigger picture, and we all contribute towards the greater purpose. Believers say it's God's plan; whereas atheists say it's just the flow of life!

Why we should avoid Fortune Tellers and Astrologists???



     Before we get into the topic, I would like to share a story that I heard from my father. Many years ago there lived a King along with his Queen and the Prince. One day, the Prince heard about a famous astrologist and went to meet him. Prince always wanted to stay single and to serve the people. This astrologist told the Prince that he should get married within a year. Prince immediately thought that the astrologist is bluffing and left the place. To his surprise, he fell in love within few months and got married within a year.

     In few years, the kingdom was under threat due to an invasion from one of the strongest empires. Prince again went to the astrologist. The astrologist told him that he should win the battle in 6 weeks time. Again, the prediction by the astrologist becomes real.

     Prince was really happy and even appointed the astrologist as Astrology Minister in his court. The kingdom was in peace. One day, the Prince asked about his father; the astrologist told him that his father should die exactly in 25 days. Since the King was sound and healthy, both the King and Prince got angry with the astrologist and sent him to the jail. Nation's best doctors were appointed to monitor King's health. On the 25th day, the King died by heart attack!!!

     What do you think of the astrology? What would have Price done to the astrologist?? Since his predictions were correct, what would you do??? Well, the Prince removed the astrologist from the court and never visited an astrologist for the rest of his life! Why??? It's simple; do you agree that the Astrology or the Fortune Prediction can either be true or false. If it is true, we cannot change it!! If it is false, what is the use in believing that?? So in either of cases it seems to be just waste of time. When we start believe in these predictions, we get into emotional battles and confusion. What do you think?
