Civilisation Is another Name of Humanism, Which Is the Outcome of Spiritual Awakening
1. Human life is a unique blessing for linking the soul with God.
2. Civilisation is another name of humanism, which is the outcome of spiritual awakening.
3. In the absence of actual knowledge, God is different for different persons and for the same person on different occasions.
Human life is a unique blessing for linking the soul with God, the omnipresent mainstream of consciousness. Philosopher St Augustine of Hippo writes, “Restless are our souls, until they rest in Thee, my God.” As we cannot think of using a pen without ink within, we cannot think of world civilisations without enlightenment of souls within.
Civilisation is another name of humanism, which is the outcome of spiritual awakening. Therefore, world civilisation does not have to be merely collective but unified consciousness essentially born out of the actual knowledge of one God for all, which results spontaneously and simultaneously in the sense of organic unity of mankind. It is like a blood relationship. It means humanity comprises each of us, whether you are a Christian, Jew, Muslim, or a Hindu. We desperately need the feeling of cosmic kinship that inherently results from the realisation of One Source.
Austrian quantum physicist Erwin Schrodinger is known for the phrase, “The total number of minds in the universe is one. In fact, consciousness is a singularity phasing within all beings.” The phrase implies that apparent multiplicity of minds is just an illusion and that there is only one mind or one consciousness that expresses itself in myriad ways. In such a worldview, a separation between subject and object does not exist. In a world without the subject-object split, we are all an expression of the One. On the same point, Max Planck says, “I regard consciousness as fundamental; I regard matter as derivative from consciousness.”
In the absence of actual knowledge, God is different for different persons and for the same person on different occasions. The concept of one God for all foresees the idea of one religion for all that suits the whole human race.
Albert Einstein told us that “everything is energy” and that “a human being is a part of the whole called by us [the] Universe.” His words echoed the most ancient spiritual and philosophical teachings and still underpin today’s cutting-edge scientific discoveries. He says, Universal Mind goes by many names – Unified Field, Universal Consciousness, and in religion we call upon God who Himself goes by many names – Jehovah, Allah and Brahmn. Each one of us is a manifestation of this single Universal Consciousness. We are all connected – not only to each other but also to all Nature and to everything in the Universe.
Connecting with the Unified Consciousness is normally understood as meditation. But it does not need any meditative process. It requires one to get connected with a True Master, who reveals God through a combination of spoken words and practical hints about the Omnipresent One. Arjun did not meditate or do any practice. He just listened and accepted whatever Krishn told him. Once we know and experience God, His remembrance becomes a spontaneous and natural process.
Satguru Sudiksha, the spiritual head of Sant Nirankari Mission, says: “Life gets a meaning if it is lived for others.” It combines the theory of mutual relationship through spiritual awakening with the innate spirit of living for others, blossoming world civilisation in full spring.
