The following are the thoughts of Paramhans Nityanand, one of the foremost spiritual teachers in India today.Read it carefully and contemplate.
In the universe, on the one hand, planets move so beautifully in order. There are no traffic signs or sign signboards! On the other hand, there is
so much of chaos if you look at all the stars and galaxies moving in their own independent paths. In the same way, in quantum physics , the smallest elements are not even particles. They are both particles and waves, and a multitude of probabilities ! But there is an order in that chaos.
If the universe is chaos without any order, it’ll head towards destruction. ‘Chaos in order’ is ‘cosmic intelligence’ . Take the planet earth. Even if a single thing is missing - temperature, water, air or fire we will not be able to live on this planet earth as we live now. So this is not just an accident. The whole chaos has some order.
The whole universe has its own intelligence. It is not just power. It is energy also. There is a difference between power and energy. Power plus intelligence is energy. Energy without intelligence is power. The cosmos is not just a force. It is ‘force plus intelligence’ . It responds to your thoughts , to your prayers, to your being , because it is intelligence. The cosmos is a living energy and it has its own intelligence. You are sitting inside a living energy.
As long as you believe that what you see as the universe is material, mechanical, without any intelligence, you will have nothing to aim for in life. ‘Might is right’ will be the ultimate law. Believing the world is just matter is the basic mistake. This belief is the root of all terrorism and violence on planet earth. As long as we believe the universe is just dead matter, it is going to create only more and more thirst for power. If we feel the whole world is chaos, then naturally we will think, ‘Let me catch hold of whatever is possible and live as much as I can.’ We will be inspired to live with the idea ‘might is right’ .
Only when we realise that the universe has its own intelligence, when we realise the universe is a spiritual being, the seed of peace is sown. Only when we understand that our thoughts are responded to, our way of life is rewarded, our prayers are answered , there is a living intelligent force and there is an order in the chaos, only then we can realise and work for peace, bliss and spirituality. Then, instead of trying to own or expand our boundaries and borders, we will try to expand our consciousness.
The moment we start believing or trusting that the universe is ‘intelligence’ , we can simply relax, trusting It. Be Blissful!
