Ownership in Higher Institutions Is God

Tonight is Maha Shiva Raathri (Great Shiva's Night) for Hindus. Here in Jaffna, most Hindu temples will hold special ceremonies to observe  Maha Shiva Raathri. During meditation this morning I focused specially on Lord Shiva - the Lord of the Mind. Maha Shiva Raathri to my mind is about foregoing physical comfort to identify with the true mind.

Later, my mail brought me the message 'Is There a God?' forwarded by Tamil Diaspora leader Yoga Joseph. To my mind this was no coincidence at a time when we as a community are seeking where we went wrong to experience the pain of war. Some of us are seeking externally through relativity, while a few are seeking from within. The former would need proof while the latter would have indicators. 

In her article headed 'Is There a God?'  Marilyn Adamson presents the following picture under the heading 
'Unlike any other revelation of God, Jesus Christ is the clearest, most specific picture of God revealing himself to us.'

[Why Jesus? Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him. Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father.]

Being a Hindu, my question is what about Krishna and Vishnu - the Hindu parallels of Jesus and Father respectively? In terms of numbers  Hinduism ranks after Islam at global level. In terms of form - Farther is separated from Son Jesus by time. Likewise, Krishna from Jesus due to cultural space. Time and Space variations are confirmed through form. It is when we lose consciousness of outer forms that we identify with the Truth within. To that extent, we realize our Soul which is naturally connect to all Souls. Until then we need to relate to each other through various relationships. The stronger the 'form' in such relationships the less the Soul connection, we are conscious of.

Maha  Shiva Raathri falls on new moon night when our outer world is dark. This is when we look within. Thus it denotes elimination of ignorance through the light of our Soul. The Christian parallel
Easter Sunday preceded by Good Friday.

By relating to other religious leaders, the author confirms lack of realization is yet to be reached by the author.  We need proof at that level. Once we realize our Soul power - we are our own god. 

In Democracy to the extent we are in government, we are Sovereign. Likewise if we are in Opposition - we are Sovereign to the extent our belief is expressed in a different form to the Government. Then we are Equal. But to the extent we relate through outcomes produced by the government - we become juniors - as son is to father. This weakens democracy which is strongest when we produce independent and diverse outcomes based on the same principles. 

Maha Shiva Raathri confirms death and rebirth at a higher level for those who are strongly influenced by their own Soul power. Former is pain and latter is joy. Meditation helps us achieve this higher joy when we control our pleasures through regulated pathways including common law and religion. When we find fault with another, without common belief - we lose the opportunity to become one with that person. When we do have belief as common link - we discipline and there is no loss power. Wars happen due to claiming separations without recognizing oneness that already exists.

Ownership in Highly structured institutions is like god within. We know through indicators and hence Key Performance Indicators. To the extent we need proof - we are outsiders.
