Semester 2..

why such a random post you all might wonder when i havent posted much about my studies before. Simple. This semester is hard . Endless assignments no time to breathe. Only good thing: no all night renders and vfx . Thankfully. Ok so this semester i have to study script writing which is quite a boring subject- i mean for chirssake what is an animatior/compositor gonna make use of script writing eventually -i don't think so , well unless we entre the mainstream which i intend not to. Ok so making a walk cycle is cool, modelling a character is cool, sound is cool fine. but why script writing? i mean seriously - write 3, 30 second secenes to have a one nd half minute movie that too animated? the amount of hard work going in2 3d modelling and animating it am not even sure the movie would end up as one and a half minutes probably longer like umm 5 minutes ....and im already frustrated its already week 3. all i can say is that just 10 more weeks for sem 2 to get over. i can't wait actually id be quite relieved. But who know how tough the last sem is gonna be?? so no point breathing a sigh of relief now...

Seekers and Sadhaks: Amazing Knowledge....

There are two types of sadhaks or seekers. The first type of seekers is those having the capability and capacity to digest knowledge, and act according to knowledge. The other type of seekers are those who make mistakes, knowingly make mistakes and feel sorry for them later on. To repeat, the second type of sadhaks is those who make mistakes but who are pained by their own mistakes. Even then, you are on the path of devotion, because the pain of not having done something that you should be doing or should have done will make you deep. If you cover your mistake, you will not even feel bad about it deeply. If you feel deeply bad about it, you feel your helplessness, your weakness, that weakness itself can make you a prayerful seeker. And then you will see whatever that was bothering you will fall away from you. Whatever habit you don´t want to have, you´ll feel that it has fallen off from you when you cry for help. It is said, the Divine dawns in you when you cry for it, when you sing for it. When you sing, very quickly the Divine love comes back to you, dawns on you again; it comes to one´s experiences. This is for sure! The Divine is only waiting for you to dig a little deeper into yourself; that is all. Because it can then fill you with much more nectar! The deeper you are, you´ll be filled with more nectar. Divine is waiting to give you more. It wants you to create more space in you. Cry from your soul for help. This is for those seekers who are weak. Those seekers who are strong, for them, with the power of knowledge they can sing with that joy of what they have achieved! Sing with the gratitude in your heart. Sing the glory of the Divine.(Read What is God - Sri Sri ) The moment you sing in gratitude, in glory of the Divine, it immediately dawns in you, and fills you up again. There are two aspects. One is a seeker who is grateful for all his growth and all that he has received, so grateful with the knowledge. The other is so helpless and weak due to own weakness. And both will be helped. And both can grow when they both sing. Because in that singing, either with pain or with joy and gratitude, the Divine dawns and the experience happens, for sure! Of all the truths in the world, Divine love alone is the supreme. Because anything else you do, be it a righteous action, if it has no love behind it, that action is worthless. Suppose you have knowledge and the knowledge does not create love and totality of awareness in you, that knowledge is useless! How can you even have the knowledge if there is no love? If you love astronomy then you will go more deep into it. Of the eternal truth, only love stands, and it is the most important. And what is Love? Love is not just an emotion - "Oh, I love you so much." That´s not love. Love is seeing that there is no difference. "I am you, you are me. You are part of me, I am part of you." Feeling that oneness is love. And it´s not just an intellectual understanding, but coming in the level of experience and living that. Living life as joy and ease is spirituality. Spirituality is not some ritual, or doing something. It´s a very pleasant, uplifted state of your being and seeing that the whole world is all spirit or consciousness. Seeing that there is one Big Mind among all the human beings, animals and all the life in the world is spirituality, and that Love is the essence of Life.

Sydney.4 months later...

ok so i got back to sydney. after four months of vacations back home. the city seems a bit different. the weather is wierd , unpredictable, just typically like sydney.... george street same yet different- some places are shut down thanks to the recession. Unilodge - i am lucky to have got a room here , albeit a small studio and much smaller than the prevoius one but am comfortable here. This semester seems to be tougher than the last one... thats all from me for now. will blog regularly once i get my internet working...
