I don’t know if my thoughts are from the past, or is it going towards the past. I’m talking about my views on the metaphysics.
Since kid, my dad used to explain me science behind stars, earth, evolution and stuff, which I used to listen to so keenly. I didn’t believe in the named gods on the books- any of them. (Somehow I liked bits and pieces of Christianity as well, but not the idea of creation or god, again). I used to believe that science had all the answers for all the questions- Where we all came from? What is the purpose in life? and everything in between. Time, light and space fascinated me.
Then you grow up and your sources of knowledge increases. books,internet, documentaries. and what not!
I came to read some bits and pieces of Indian Philosophies. In the net I came across Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming. I read “many lives & many masters”. watched “The Secret” documentary.
Instead of giving answers, I felt clueless and bewildered at the universe.
In the past we used to believe the man and earth as the center of the universe. Then Science went on its spree to change it- starting from Copernican model to Relativity and Quantum mechanics.
From this point I have again took a leap. To the universe centered on my consciousness. And I’m now trying to figure out what that thing is- whether it is the chemicals and electrical impulses in brain making it up, or a consciousness that creates the entire universe I see.
I’m stuck, clueless and fleeting. Not knowing what to believe in.
I’ll jut mention one of my favorite quotes here –
“The first gulp from the glass of natural sciences will turn you into an atheist, but at the bottom of the glass God is waiting for you”- Werner Heisenberg
But indeed, so beautiful are the creations, so mysterious the questions and so exciting the answers…
