About This Blog

In our young age many beliefs, habits, do’s and don’ts were taught/forced on to us by our Parents/Elders in the name of Wise things to do, Religion and GOD. We used to follow some of them blindly or forced to follow them because of peer pressure or we used to ignore some of them in the name of ignorance or superstition.

Personally I think there should be some reasoning behind each one of them. At the same time whatever said to us may not be true completely as it were passed on to us after many generations in form of saying/writing which has many chances to get misinterpreted or exaggerated or twisted or even being false or not applicable now.

We can’t question our Parents/Elders always as they don’t know the real reasoning behind it. It’s our duty to use our sixth sense and differentiate the right and wrong and choose the correct one after analysis from the true source. In that way we might be to answer our-self and our coming generations with true knowledge. The purpose of this blog is learning and sharing the true knowledge in our inner journey towards the higher Self.

As a human we are born in the world to learn and correct ourselves from our past mistakes and realize the true reality (Inner Self). My humble thought is that Spirituality is the true source of Ultimate Reality; Science is the Reasoning behind it and Religion is the Path to achieve it for common man. In other words ‘Spirituality is the Soul, Science is the Mind and Religion is the Body’.

Suggestions/Feedback/Comments are always welcome to know our Self better! :)

  1. Thank you Ganesh for helping OAK to reach its milestone.You are my 100th follower.I have mentioned that in today’s post.

  2. Dear Ganesh,
    I would also like to nominate you for the Sunshine Award. I always enjoy reading your posts.

    Regards,
    Amrita

    • Thanks dear friend! Of-course it has meaning. It has two meaning. God Ganesha (Elephant GOD) as per Religion for common man and [Gan+Esh - Ganam+Eshwar - Cube+GOD - GOD of the Cube [Micro Abode] or Ganam+Pathi – Holder of the Cube [microabode] as per Scientific Principle. I may explain more about the scientific concept later in a post. :)

      • I knew it! Ganesh features in Luke Davie’s poem, Totem. Here, I’ll post a little bit for you. Enjoy!
        “The whoosh of whisky grass; something had been and gone.
We woke. Ganesh was gone, and every bull and bull-god,
gone. How change became good fortune, how love streamed.
 In the yellow time of pollen, and the honeysuckle blooming,
the preciseness of the world came flooding in.”
        He is the patron god of writing, and the god of good fortune, and change. A Hindu god I think?
        Anyway, my friend, the rest of the poem is here, in its entirety if you like it so far… http://www.poetrylibrary.edu.au/poets/davies-luke/totem-poem-0065001
        Ganesh is in five stanzas of this forty stanza epic love poem. I will look forward to more posts and the scientific concept in future. And thanks for visiting the labyrinth! :)

  3. Hello, Ganesh, My best wishes to you for what you are doing here.
    I came here because of notification that you liked a post of mine and, when I came here, the first thing that struck me was the droplet hitting the water. This reminded me of the first line of my affirmation regarding oneness or the I AM. I reproduce the whole affirmation in case it interests you.

    As the droplet is to the ocean,
    I am.
    As the lick of flame is to the fire,
    I am.
    As the sunbeam is to sunlight,
    I am.
    As the Great Spirit is,
    I am.

    N.B. I have later added a visualisation to help those interested.

    All the best,
    Ian.

  10. Hi Ganesh just wanted to let you know about this person in Karnataka who is simply amazing. His name is also Ganesh and this is the reason am letting you know about him….i wish you read something about him, however i will be posting about this person in my future articles. He is a famous personality and widely spoken for his extraordinary skills in art of “avadhana” . Just thought of sharing about this great personality with you who shares the same name as yours.

    you can read about him here
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shatavadhani_Ganesh

    or you can just google his name

  11. Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoy what I’ve read here, too, particularly your reflection on the beliefs that shape us when we are young.

  12. Your blog is important. I use that word, important, specifically because all too often we lose ourselves in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. I can go to one part of your blog for an immediate idea to meditate or go to another part and read up on something I want to know more about. In other words, it reminds me to focus on myself for a moment…or two :-) Thanks for creating this blog and sharing it with those of us looking for a little enlightenment.

  13. Love your blog title,’known is a drop,unknown is an Ocean’….I think you are referring to the humans as a drop belonging to the whole vast universe/god ,which is unknown….Correct me if I am wrong.

    • Thank you very much! Actually it is a famous quote of Avvaiyar. The Avvaiyar which means “respectable women” was the title of more than one poet who was active during different periods of Tamil literature. I learned this quote in my school day…

      There are different ways to interpret this quote. The simple meaning is whatever we have learned in our life is drop and there is ocean to learn or learning never ends. This quotes remind us that never think “I know everything” and nothing more to learn because of false delusion of Ego, which stops our learning journey to eternity. Be humble and open to learn…

      Your interpretation is absolutely right! It’s the philosophical/spiritual interpretation of this quote. Recently I also came to know about Rumi’s quote which you may like too, “We are not a drop in the Ocean, We are the mighty Ocean in a drop”. :)

    • Thanks Ian for sharing a very interesting post. Thank you very much for allowing me to share your thoughtful posts. It’s my pleasure and honor. Wish you all the very best!! :)

  15. Ganesh,
    Please send me a personal email I have something to discuss with you that I don’t want to post. I know you have already but I was in India with limited internet access for days. Thanks,
    Dr. Jessie

  16. Hi Ganesh,
    Thank you for stopping by my site and liking my post on Mysticism. I appreciate your luminous work here and the passion with which you share it with the world. I do hope we can stay in touch.
    Fabiana

  17. Hi Ganesh,

    I would like to contact you on your email, if you don’t mind of course, I’d like to ask you some question.
    Please, if you can, contact me on my mail sofiasiberia at hotmail com
    and i’ll write you back.

    Sincerely,

    Sofia

  18. Thank you for liking my post! Entering now into the Age of Aquarius, we are also moving upward into the heart chakra. Here, the heart prevails and we are perceiving and experiencing the world from that perspective. These are exciting times and the opportunities to grow spiritually are very much intensified! Let it guide you through your daily life. Sending you light!

  19. “Spirituality is the soul, science is the mind, and religion is the body.” How true! I think I’ll quote it sometime lol. It’s so important to find a balance in those three things, otherwise our spirits get out of whack. Great page!

  20. truly a resonance here with our souls, I appreciate you having gone into barefootseasons to “like” my recent post, blessings and bliss! kathy

  21. Hi Ganesh,
    Thank you for the blog and your amazing posts, I can’t wait to start reading them.
    I am so curious about life and your blog is the perfect place to guide me in exploring more topics which can enhance my knowledge and others that can can help me justify my inner beliefs.
    I am new in the blogosphere and would love to hear from you and fellow bloggers too.

  22. Dear Ganesh, I can relate to the purposes of this enquiry. My particular interest is in Cultural Contours, that encompasses the Spiritual, the Scientific and the Religious manifestations of life, amongst others. I hope to follow your journey and contribute to it where I have relevant experience to share.

    Best wishes. R.jv

  23. Wow I was looking for this type of blog. I am interested in understanding the parallels between religion and science. I believe that thousands of years ago in India there was very advanced science. All the background knowledge got lost in later conquests of India. But now we consider this science to be as religion I.e. I bet certain rituals, like purification rituals that seem to be based on religion must have some scientific background that only now we are beginning to learn thousands of years later.

    I look forward to reading your blog entries!

  24. I think your blog is just phenomenal. I am doing a design project on combining scientific cosmological theories with Hindu cosmology.
    This blog has been so helpful.
    Maybe you should venture into the area of Terence McKenna’s work and analyse that in a religious space, especially thoughts about the Soma Mandala. I don’t know, just some food for thought.
    Well done! Once again, great ideas, confluent and interesting.

    • Thanks dear Anusha for the kind words! Glad to know about your interesting project. I would love to explore Mamuni Mayan’s ‘Surya Siddhanta’ to get started from the Source in Astronomy. Also thanks for sharing about Terence McKenna and Soma Mandala.

      I am just a learner. It’s my pleasure to learn and share. :)

  25. Well said! I followed you because of the spiritual essence in your words! One serving spirit, knows another, It is amazed the calling that is place within us in our beginnings. Not one that parents really comprehend, for we see more and we feel more. Your words have that life within them that is why it is such a joy to read and embrace them. God makes no mistake in our creation. You are blessed greatly…keep moving forward, sharing, caring and helping humankind as long as you can…your light is needed in our world! God bless you!

  26. Thank you for sharing this article quite interesting and, hopefully true happiness rays began to warm our hearts, when we can share it with sincerity. Greetings from Gede Prama :)

  27. Hello Ganesh thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. Although it is all about travelling it has some spirituality part on it because I had the opportunity to travel to India twice. I was fascinated with the traditions, the culture and of course!. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay longer to practice some meditation or experience Ayurveda (difficult when you travel with a child) I also have a culinary page on it. You blog is amazing! I will read it frequently. You have great stuff on it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
    Maria

  28. Wow Ganesh. I’m new to your blog and all I can say is wow and from what I have seen it is easy to understand why you won blog of the year award and I am looking forward to reading much much more. Seems to me we have a lot of similar interests. :)
