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?

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

Am I traveling???

I'm in a bus and on my way to Delaware. There are different kind of people who travel along with me. I can see happiness in some faces, tiredness in few faces and some don't have any kind of expression looks like they are in balanced state. My neighbor is in deep sleep. I started starring outside. Everywhere it's green and green:) my heart starts saying HELLO to the trees which passes by. There is a tree in the middle, it's the tallest among all the trees. But but... It is dying.. All the leaves are faded.. Yes, it's in her last days. My heart stopped there and started talking to this tree. This tree lives here for few centuries. My heart tries to read her thoughts. It seems to be in a very balanced state. My heart starts asking several questions. Anton : Hey you looks so amazing. You are the tallest one among your friends! Tree : Ha ha ha! Anton : Excuse me! Why are you laughing? Tree. : I know the truth. I only have few hours or few days! Anton :

What came first EGG or HEN???

Two men were arguing about a flag flapping in the wind. "It's the wind that is really moving," stated the first one. "No, it is the flag that is moving," contended the second. A Zen master, who happened to be walking by, overheard the debate and interrupted them. "Neither the flag nor the wind is moving," he said, "It is MIND that moves." From Anton: Even if you get a definite answer.. Lets say the Egg came first. Or The wind started first. What is the point??? What do you understand? or What do you gain? Think, there are so many mysteries in the nature. And you are part of nature.. Realize yourself!
