Views

Physically, more than 60 % of the inputs to the human brain are not processed. Implying that we have the inputs coming (inputs of voices/ any sound, visions/ everything that can be seen, may or may not be noticed, touch/ any thing that can be felt hands, feet, anywhere)from all our senses!

This is because if our brain does not filter, we will go mad trying to process all the inputs and would not be able to concentrate.

Sidetrack
{
- Have you ever remembered you surrounding voices /details during an exam / high concentration time/experience
- People with hearing aids have problems in listening as the device amplifies everything
- And so on
}

Continuation of the 3D view
Now the same happens on a mental level too. We categorize everything /( and unluckily everyone also)
- That type of person
- Good food
- Most of the generic / non generic adjectives
- Sweet orange.

In order to avoid having to categorize things/people every time, we put them in predefined boxes.
(Interesting part)
What we usually fail to realize we end up associating a lot of other things of the tag. (Also see Inheritance in programming languages, Subset theory.. et al)

Example, when you say sweet orange, what you refer to as sweet could be something, but I perceive sweet as orange and unluckily end up associating a lot of the other properties on the Orange!
The same goes for people
We end up ( usually) categorizing people, good/ bad/sweet /humorous/ Scheming / simple/ complex, list goes on.
These so called adjectives usually have a real reference, linkages, connection!

When I say dustbin, you actually see a dustbin (whatever you relate to or have a definition of dustbin)

Same goes for people, when I say a sweet girl, you r association of a sweet girl conjures up a real/ imaginary image of a sweet girl. And you expect the sweet girl in discussion to be same/ have ALL( yes expect ALL) the qualities of the Sweet girl in your MIND

Carefully now see the relation.
We typecast people, usually. And then end up having certain other expectations, which are inherited, from the parent reference!

Experience it


Instead of being concerned with fitting every new experience into a preconceived category, put your energy into living the experience itself. Instead of using your thoughts to place a judgment on each thing that comes your way, put your energy into being more fully aware of it all.

How many things do you miss completely because you think you already know what you're looking at? How many new concepts do you fail to grasp because you're trying to fit them into concepts you already have?

If your life seems to be stuck in one place, the most likely reason is that your thoughts are preventing anything new from coming into your awareness. Relax your need to judge and to analyze, and you'll glimpse the abundant richness that is always available to you.

Let go of the need to know it all, and you'll begin to experience more and more. Move beyond the desire to always prove that you're right, and your eyes will open to profound truths.

What has it ever gained anyone to be cynical and closed minded? Choose instead to open your mind, to open your eyes to the astounding, ever-increasing richness of what is.

Let yourself out of the prison that your ego keeps trying to build. There's a big, beautiful universe right here and now that's filled with value for you to live.

Holistic View (three dimensional Holographic life theory)

(I am sure some of who know me were looking forward for this post)

I view my life as this Holographic Three Dimensional Puzzle
.
In fact now that I put my mind to it, it can be considered as a Multi-Dimensional Holographic puzzle,

Let me detail

From the time when we are born, we have a certain view of things:

We have our niche, our parents, and siblings, Family!
We have our own set of opinions, But these Initially (the first) set of opinions are Empirical/ Tenets.
These come from views of our near and dear ones, whom we consider as the only source of thoughts. What is right or wrong?

Not just that,but what is what.

ON the BASIS of these Views / opinions. We form our OWN set of opinions.
(Now carefully understand)

Each of these VIEWS, forms the basis of how we VIEW/ PERCEIVE everything that comes our way.
THESE views are HOLOGRAPHIC in nature...Because as and when we change our position, we understand and get a new meaning to the same views.

As and example. You must have heard." by the time the son realizes what his father says was right. He already has a son who thinks he is wrong" Its the same views... but with change of time, age the perception changes

Just like a Hologram. With the change in angle of view. it Changes..

Now comes the build up
THE CRITICAL PART

A we grow, the dimensions change, the number of people who influence us increase.
Our Bonding levels change

From Our Mother or Father, who were supposed to be our closest, understood us best Once, are replaced, by others. Siblings, best friend(s).. Opposite sex friend (who usually complements, your opposite sex parent)

But wait. It’s not that simple..
There is much more
We also had our views...
Now we have more views. More perceptions...
But these are not perceived/ learned by us as they are..Or as expressed by the owners of these new views..viz new friends.... etc
We view them through the biased glasses of our current views...
GIVING new dimensions to our current set of holographic views.
This build-up continues.
In between there are other factors /distractions that keep coming in
Puberty
Opposite sex exploration.
More relationships
All this while ..Our mind continuously keeps building on the 3D Views..
...
This is the basic theory ..
Digest it..

NUDE

The word has various implications..
But what happens when u are de-clothed, in public....
You blush!
You are afraid of being seen as you are!
Publically!!!
Exposed!
You try to hide..
But feel...
ashamed
(why)
Others too maybe like you... on the inside.. but they hush
and you blush

Its a very helpless situation.
(though can be a great learning curve)

If you imagine yourself being Naked
all you facades being foced down
You discover who you really are from within.
Not just in the physical sense
( Though if you view yourself complete naked infront of a mirror for long enough, i am definate you would discover a loyt about how you really look..stuff which you never knew , maybe. )


It is a difficult situation to be in ..though,
to be completely discovered...
with all your uniformities and deformities being looked at and disected!

God help!
(
Shame is a psychological condition and a form of religious, political, judicial, and social control consisting of ideas, emotional states, physiological states and a set of behaviors, induced by the consciousness or awareness of dishonor, disgrace, or condemnation. Genuine shame is associated with genuine dishonor, disgrace, or condemnation. False shame is associated with false condemnation as in the double-bind form of false shaming; "he brought what we did to him upon himself". Therapist John Bradshaw calls shame the "emotion that lets us know we are finite

Like a prayer

Are our lives pre-destined or does free will exist? Astrologer Harsh Khiraiya explores
Many a times we hear of miracles. People escape from accidents. There are sole survivors in plane wrecks. Some patients survive complicated and tedious operations. Were they fated to survive? Or was there any other force that saved them? We still debate as to whether there is free will or is everything pre - destined? Is our life completely pre-planned or can we do something about it? Astrology is a divine craft that predicts the life patterns of individuals with uncanny precision. It draws up your fate, destiny and success. But is there something beyond astrology that can change your fate ?

The Supernatural


A serious student of astrology is always taught that there is 80 per cent fate and 20 per cent free will. Now let us concentrate upon this 20 per cent free will. In this context it means the power of curses, blessings and prayers. The three mentioned factors can and do change our lives.

Curses


If we browse through most of the religious scriptures or famous doctrines, we shall find a curse that has changed the course of the story. We are always told not to trouble our parents because if they curse us, we are doomed. Curses can single handedly change your fate and over-ride your fate and stars. Hence do not: Deliberately harass your parents Harm or injure animals Cause disrespect to elderly people

Blessings


The complete opposite theory applies to blessings. It is said that a single powerful blessing can burn away thousands of bad karmas. The best source for blessings are your parents and elders. However, blessings have to be from the heart and not artificial or induced by money.

Prayers


The power of prayer can rescue you from the mouth of death. It is said that the word of God is more powerful than a thousand injections and medicines. Science has now discovered that prayer healing has tangible healing effects on hospitalised patients. A strong prayer from someone who loves you can change the course of your life and take away all your miseries.

Conclusion

So we can see that though astrology defines our fate patterns, there are forces stronger than it which can change our lives for the better or worse. We only need to believe.

Prayers are known to work wonders

The Duck

"Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath."
