Newton’s Laws and Spirituality


The third law of Newton says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And this is immediate and instant. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size but opposite in direction. And all this is again objective and material

Let us look into this law spiritually. When you do good, you may feel good. And when you do bad, you may feel bad. And this too can be immediate and instant. But this is individual and subjective. And this is spiritual. I can not force my good and my bad on the other. You may feel bad when you abuse your son or daughter for no reason at all. You may later on feel guilty for this behavior. You may repent for this action. You may rethink on all this. And this experience can have a transforming effect. This is subjective and individual. And all this depends on an individual’s empathy neurons. 

One of the best presidents of America, Abraham Lincoln, says, “When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion”. This may be a religion to him. But the same may not be true for others. This is individual and subjective. We can not force this on the humanity. This has to be spiritual

We can only force on the humanity the laws of the land. And a law is not love. When there is no love, the law is needed. And when there is love, there is no need of any law. And love is a higher law. Love is a supreme law. The love of the divine is supreme. Buddha called this Dhamma. And this is spiritual

The above law is like the law of Karma. Karma means doing. Doing means an action. Even non-action means doing and is an action. And every action has a consequence. And every individual is responsible for the consequences of his action. The consequences can be either immediate or some time later. Nobody knows when. And nobody can predict. It is uncertain. And the consequences can be either good or bad. And good and bad are relative things. What is good to me need not be good to you. And what is bad to me need not be bad to you. This is again individual and subjective

Let us again look into the second law of Newton spiritually. Let us presume that every individual who is a unit of mass becomes spiritual like that of Krishna, Buddha, Jesus, Mahavira, Osho, etc. Now just imagine the spiritual force and spiritual power on the earth!! Can you just imagine what will happen if this spiritual power becomes a social power

Can we reckon this spiritual power as a social power? The whole planet earth would be a heaven then. Otherwise, the third world war is not very far. The survival of the toughest and fittest is an old adage. The survival of the wisest has to be a new adage. We have to move from the Dark Age to an Enlightened Age. And all this can be only by our choice. And all this can only be by design and not by default.

Glass, Half Full or Half Empty

The reality exists and we all perceive the reality. What is true reality? Nobody can give the exact answer. Each person has his own reality. And, therefore, each person has his own expression. The reality is one but the perceptions could be many. The reality is one but the expressions could be many. Every one perceives reality in his own way. Every observer observes reality is his own way. Every perception is relative to the one who is perceiving. Every observation is relative to the observer. The one who is perceiving and the perception are not two different things. The observer and the observed are not two different things.


Is the glass half full or half empty? This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s worldview. This is a common phrase that we use to know an individual’s point of view. In the above situation, every individual’s worldview could be different. One may argue and say that the glass is half full and this expression may indicate optimism. And another ma…

The Mahabharata : In a Nutshell !!

There are three great characters in the Mahabharata. All the other characters are just by-products of these three characters. Duryodhana, Arjuna, and Krishna are these three main and great characters. To me, Duryodhana represents the Unconscious. He is a metaphor for the Unconscious. Arjuna represents the Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Conscious. And Krishna represents the Supreme Conscious. He is a metaphor for the Supreme Conscious. He is representing the Supreme Consciousness. When the ray of the Supreme Consciousness passes through the prism of the mind, the prism of the mind manifests the Supreme Consciousness into the Consciousness and the Unconsciousness.

To make things simple, let us understand this by way of an example. Let us suppose that the Unconsciousness is like darkness and the Consciousness is like the light. And the one that joins these two and still remains beyond is called the Supreme Consciousness. According to the psychologists the Unconsciousness is far far …

And when the son meets the father !!

We all know the story of the Buddha that he went in search of knowing himself. He went in search of enlightenment. And in the process he left everything behind - his own family, his father, and his kingdom. In the past there was this tradition of renunciation. One has to give-up everything in order to attain to enlightenment. One has to give-up oneself in order to become a Siddha. Siddhartha was a prince. He was the son of a king Śuddhodana. Siddhartha had all the comforts and luxuries that one can imagine. And since childhood he has seen only one-side of life, the life of all comforts and luxuries. And he had no idea about the other side of the life of poverty and deprivation. And when he had grown-up, the side which was absent and suppressed started attracting him in the form of renunciation. This is a common psychology of life that a thing which has been absent in life, shall soon start dominating its presence. The one that we suppress will try to surface with a greater force. If …
