The time clock of the universe runs at its streamlined pace. Nobody can interfere in its speed. “आनीदवतं स्वधया तदेकम् ।” from Rig Veda means the time need no medium (not even air) to breathe.
There is only one thing which goes hand in hand with the TIME i.e. the life energy or PRAAN (प्राण) in Hindi. There is no English synonym for this beautiful word ‘Praan’. You may say it life energy, spirit, the soul, the breath of life or brahma. It is a matter which also do not require a medium to travel just like ‘Time’. Praan exist everywhere. It is the life inside the oxygen we intake or the life inside a fruit. That’s why it is observed people living in fresh air and eating healthier tends to live longer and healthy life. If we remove Praan from our body, our body will die.
Praan is the life energy that inter-connects everything in the universe. It is the transformational energy, which travel from me to you to the plants or to any living organism. When someone die we say in Hindi “ प्राण निकल गए “ means there is no more Praan inside the body.
Birth and death are the conversion of energy from one dimension to the another, from physical to non physical and again to physical, and the cycle goes on.
We understand that we have limited time on earth for this Life. We waste our life without thinking how we can improve our life-energy and hence improving our lives ahead. Isn’t that unfair? Probably the society should be designed to let people realize the real purpose of life. Rather the society should design the education systems for the real purpose only. Just like the ancient India had Gurukuls where saints educate the real purpose in budding minds. Also, our current education system and the work culture purposely deviate us from the real reason for birth.
I think about this often. I feel the sorrow in our life is because we have lost our real purpose and there is no guidance or hope to find it. And I end this blog with this quest of mine with you to brainstorm and meditate on this and let me know your point of view.
