Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient

Let us talk of the whole structure of our being. At the periphery of the being are our thoughts. This layer is of positive thoughts and negative thoughts. This is the mind of the being. This is an intellectual layer of the being. This layer can be purified through mindfulness and awareness. This layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Intellectual Quotient (IQ) of the being.

There is a layer below the intellectual layer. A layer below this is called the emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This layer has negative emotions and positive emotions. And this layer can also be purified through mindfulness and awareness. The energy at this layer can be purified through the process of Dhyana or meditation. This layer is called the Emotional Quotient (EQ) of the being.

Emotions, thoughts, and actions are not three different things. They are three different forms of the same energy. The emotions are moving in the heart. The thoughts are moving in the mind. And these emotions and thoughts manifest through the body as actions. The emotions in the heart trigger as thoughts in the mind, and the same thoughts manifest through the body as actions. One can slap somebody with the hand or one can shake somebody’s hand with the same hand. It all depends on us as to how we use our thought energy.

A thought is an object. It is an energy. And this object creates its own world. It creates its own space and time. It creates its own world of thoughts and emotions. It creates a world of the mind. And this mind can be transformed into a creative mind. A moving thought is a space. A moving thought is time. A mind, therefore, is a space-time object. The mind is a space of moving thoughts. A moving mind creates an illusion of time.

The whole structure of an individual being is like that of an atom. The atom consist of electrons, protons, and neutrons. The electrons are negatively charged particles and are moving in the outermost orbit of the atom. This is the periphery of the atom. The protons are positively charged particles. And the neutrons are neutrally charged particles. The protons and neutrons are in the center of the atom called the nucleus. As we move from the periphery to the center of the atom, the power increases. The center of the atom is the most powerful place in the atom. The protons are more powerful than the electrons. And the neutrons are more powerful than the protons and electrons. The center of the atom, called the nucleus, is the most powerful place in the atom. According to science, the electrons, protons, and neutrons are not three different things. They are three different manifestations of the same energy.

The thoughts are like particles. These are moving in the mind at different energy levels. They have their own properties - position, speed, energy, etc. The thoughts are moving in the space of the mind. And these thoughts create their own world of the mind. And these thoughts - past, present, and future, create the mind. The past, present, and future are the three dimensions of the thought object. And the space and time is the fourth dimension. The past time is our memory. The present time is the time that we are living now at this very moment. And the future time is our imagination. And the sum of all this is nothing but our mind. Our mind is nothing but a four dimensional subjective world. If the past is responsible for the present, then with the same analogy the present will also be responsible for the future. Therefore, the whole objective is to create a world of positive actions and creative actions.

The outer layer of our being is the layer of negative, positive, and neutral thoughts. This is the periphery of our being. This is the mind of our being. The quality of the thoughts determine the quality of the mind. This is an intellectual layer. This is a layer of intellectual energy. This layer determines our Intellectual Quotient (IQ). A layer below this is a layer of negative, positive, and neutral emotions. This layer is below the intellectual layer. This is an emotional layer. This is the heart of the being. This is a layer of emotional energy. The emotional energy is more subtler than the intellectual energy. The quality of the emotions determine the quality of the heart. There is a layer further deeper. This layer is that of silence. This is more like a field. The thoughts and emotions are like particles. The thoughts and emotions are continuously interacting with this field of silence. And in a silent state of the mind we can experience the soul. The silent state is neither positive nor negative. It is a neutral state. It transcends the negative state and the positive state. The silent state helps us to know the utility and futility of both the states, that is, the positive state and the negative state. As we move deeper in our being the power increases. The positive thoughts are more powerful than the negative thoughts. The neutral thoughts are more powerful than the positive and negative thoughts. The Atma or soul is the center of our being. It is the most powerful place in our being. It is a center of infinite empathy. It is a center of infinite love and bliss. This is our happiness quotient. And this state determines our Spiritual Quotient (SQ).

The Spiritual Quotient (SQ) is the sum of our Intellectual Quotient (IQ) and Emotional Quotient (EQ). And mathematically, 

Spiritual Quotient (SQ) = Intellectual Quotient (IQ) + Emotional Quotient (EQ).

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…

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 …

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 …
