Boycott politics, because they are the slaves of the rich corporations
Boycott rich corporations, because they are the slaves of power and greed
Boycott main stream media, because they are the slaves of the manipulation of politics and rich corporations.
Boycott racism, nationalism, patriotism and religion, because they enslave your mind
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
‘Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look? Bob Marley
“YOU ARE NOT THIS BODY
YOU ARE NOT THIS MIND
YOU ARE THE SPIRIT…
THIS IS THE GREATEST TRUTH.” H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
We were born into a place without our consent.
We were born into a family without our choice.
We were born into a culture without our knowledge.
We were born innocent, small and pure.
So how can there be racism, patriotism, nationalism and the following of a particular religion?
Let’s imagine ourselves to be born somewhere else, in another culture, to another race!
Lets imagine ourselves to be devoid of the pre fabricated lies we were told to believe.
What keeps us from being the human we were born in the first place, devoid of religion, cast and creed? Just full of love with an open heart towards all beings and all forms of live.
What keeps us from discarding the stories of hatred, greed and selfishness we have been told?
The space between the second that was and the second to come is the only place you are truly in reality. Only if thinking stops and you perceive the world without thought you are in harmony with your SELF, your surroundings and the universe. You become an observer and part of this great cosmic play. Unless we connect to the primordial power, we will never know who we truly are.
What if life was like a beautiful song?
We would cherish each sound, not the beginning nor the end
We would be part of each note in our heart
Living the moment in silence and joy
Yet we created a world, a system, where each one toils
For something better to come, a goal, heaven, a dream
From young we tell them that grades are important
That only then they will reach somewhere
Then we tell them again, that to serve a system
Will make them happy, fulfilled and free
That nation, religion, race are the final goal
Even a god we created that would give us heaven
If we served and did as the rule book told
So they work and toil all for for some one else
and for dreams they’ve been told
Till they are old, weak and worn out by life
The goal they were told had never been found
A thousand voices of inspiration telling me to go out and speak of what I have to say.
To listen to music without words
Is to leave your mind behind
To leave your mind behind
Meditation takes you to the source
And the source of all is sound
What ever little we know from history, Kochi always seems to have been a vibrant port by the Arabian sea, gaining importance after the Dutch, Portuguese and Brits came to trade and occupy. Initially the city was frequented by Roman, Chinese and Arab traders. They all had one thing in common. They came for the wealth of spices and precious woods and in turn left indelible marks on the history and cuisine of the city. Kochi developed into a major trading port dealing in pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and other goods. Till today Kerala is world wide famous for great quality spices.
Kochi was frequented by many great travellers, scholars and traders like Fa Hien and Vasco da Gama among others. Their tales and reports contributed significantly to the growth of the city and made Kochi the most important trading points in India.
Few urban pockets in any city would offer such an engaging mix of history, culture, culinary treats, as the historical area of Fort Kochi, located right on the busy harbour mouth with ships and fishing vessels moving in and out. There are museums, art galleries, cafes, the famed fishing nets and shopping on Princess Street. You can see some of the last remnants of Dutch Colonial style houses, with their steeply angled roofs and tall windows.
