Entering into 60th year. Launching UNIVERSALISM.
बुढ़ा सठिया गया हैं। Yes family and friends! I am completing 59 years today and entering into 60th year which the people worldwide think is an age when person starts becoming crazy, insane, less intellectual etc. I read somewhere that if you want to achieve something worthwhile then you should be crazy/ zealous about your conviction/ passion. Whatever the experience and learning I gained so far, I am convinced that there are 3 basic reasons for our sufferings and happiness. To create a positive difference around my soul and souls of my surroundings, today I am launching UNIVERSALISM.
What is Universalism?
Universalism is to eliminate pain from our life and fill our life with happiness. Founding words of Universalism are Wisdom, Love and Duty. In this world, there is no one who is not suffering from either some pain or who is not continuously trying to work for happiness in life. These pain and pleasures may be of any type- physical, emotional, mental, financial or spiritual. These pain and pleasures can be personal, professional or social. In last few years I made efforts to know the main cause of pain and pleasure. After a lot of study, discussion and research, I have concluded that there are mainly 3 reasons for our suffering. These are not new. Every religion and philosophy has taught them but we keep on forgetting and there is need to continuously remind them.
From the point of importance, first basic reason for suffering is Lack of Wisdom. Ample information and knowledge is available at touch of finger but what we lack is wisdom i.e. an ability to take right decisions at the right time, in right circumstances and with the right people. It is easy to choose between right and wrong. But it is very difficult to choose between right and more right or wrong and more wrong. Our greed, selfishness, jealousy and fears do not allow us to think rationally and act wisely.
Second basic cause of our suffering is Not Doing our Duty. In life we get many roles. Role of son, daughter, parent, spouse, employee, employer, colleague, neighbor, citizen, friend etc. but we fail to understand about our duty as per our role. We decide our duty according to our own benefit/convenience rather than according to our role. Over-doing any duty can be as harmful as not doing our duty. Sometimes we decide our duty based on the response of other party. We give excuse that if other person is not doing his/her duty then why shall I do my duty. Doing your duty irrespective of the situation is the key to happiness.
Third but most important basic reason for our suffering is Lack of Love. Due to greed, jealousy, selfishness and fear, we have forgotten to love. We love only those people who fulfill our expectations or we have hope that our expectations will be fulfilled. Giving unconditional love is nowhere seen. It may not be possible to love all but at least we can take a vow that we will not hate anyone. The person whom we hate occupies more rent free space in our mind and thoughts as compared to person we love.
Among wisdom, duty and love; wisdom is supreme attribute we need to have because quality of our duty and love cannot be better than quality of our knowledge and wisdom. If you agree with me then let us take oath:
I pledge to my supreme almighty that:
1. I will enhance my wisdom continuously.
2. I will perform my duty in every situation.
3. I will love all living beings unconditionally.
4. I will always promote these principles.
