OF COCONUT TREES AND CHEATS

. Rathnam looked around anxiously before signaling his mistress to leave. Luckily no one was to be seen around in the noon heat. After she left, Rathnam sighed in relief. There were still a couple of hours or so for his teacher wife to return from work He was about to go inside his house when he looked up for some reason and saw him. Up above, perched on a coconut tree, was a coconut-tree climber, grinning down at him like a moron. The ill-clad guy seemed to be mocking him silently. From his perch high above on the coconut tree, he could see things around him from a vantage point. His sardonic look seemed to imply to Rathnam’s guilty mind that this wretched climber knew everything about his family and his fooling around with a mistress. Rathnam gasped in anxiety at the implications of this. This tree climber could foment trouble in Rathnam’s life. One hint to his teacher wife and there would be hell to pay! Though he was very furious at the man’s sly smile, he decided to placate h…

THE HEAD- TURNER.

I used to be a nice looking woman in my younger days. My mom loved to say often that our family astrologer had predicted just after my birth that I would be a head-turner. But I wasn't prepared for what happened to middle-aged me a couple of weeks back. I was in a park nearby our house and doing some exercises, a place I go to regularly. Then suddenly it all happened within a few seconds. Iwas moving my head from side to side as part of my Spondylosis exercise when I suddenly sensed something or someone behind me. At almost the same instant, my head involuntarily turned around fully, enabling me to see a man trying to snatch my necklace! The man's screams on seeing my head 180 degree turnaround were much louder than mine as he fled. ***

THE PHONE CALL

It was terrifying! My mobile was ringing non-stop . It was about 12.30 in the night. The screen was blank! No number, no image or photo, just the ringing sound. Then before I could collect my wits and reject the call, I heard his voice. A jovial voice which under normal circumstances I would always enjoy hearing...That of my beloved elder brother. He always liked to joke and tease me, his kid sister. But now I was just terrified. It was an eerie, out of the world voice. " Hullo Valsala, this is Venkat. I just wanted you to know from me first. I am dead. I love you sis." The phone went dead after that. I was wide eyed with horror and deep sadness after that. I couldn't believe that even he, my jolly good brother would play such a terrible prank on me! Yet, how could a dead man talk? The blank screen and his talking without my accepting the call was very scary to think about. About an hour passed like that in sheer hell with me agonizing whether to call my …

COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS

THE ANCIENT WISE MEN OF INDIA SAY: MAN'S TRUE SELF IS A SMALL BUNDLE OF COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS. ANIMALS HAVE A MUCH SMALLER LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS THAN MAN, PROGRESSIVELY LOWER ACCORDING TO THE STAGE OF EVOLUTION. GOD AND EVOLVED BEINGS HAVE INFINITE COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS. ALL HUMAN SPIRITUAL EFFORTS ARE TO EXPAND AND MERGE THE SMALL INDIVIDUAL CONSCIOUSNESS WITH THE INFINITE. THAT'S THE HIGHEST GOAL OF EVOLUTION. IF HUMANS ADOPT ANY OF THE PATHS RECOMMENDED BY ALREADY EVOLVED SOULS AND TRY WITH GREAT SINCERITY, THEY TOO CAN EVOLVE INTO HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS. ON THE OTHER HAND, IF THEY CONTINUE WITH THEIR PETTY, MUNDANE LIVES, THEY WILL HAVE TO WAIT FOR MANY MORE BIRTHS TO EVOLVE UPWARDS. BUT, IF THEY LIVE A SATANIC LIFE, THEIR EVOLUTION WILL TAKE A DOWNTURN AND SUCH HUMANS MAY REVERT BACK TO ANIMAL LIFE AND CONSCIOUSNESS. JAI SRI KRISHNA. ***
