We most often in our lives ask this question: What is reality? Do we play any role in it and why most of the time we do not agree with others in explaining reality?
Philosophically, we see the Universe the way it is because we exist. Our existence is reality and every other thing in this Universe is illusion. All of us have our own version of reality and there is no absolute reality which is true to everyone in this world. This notion had already been proved by Quantum Physics which is the base of almost all modern technologies. We not only observe history but we also take part in it, change its characteristics and perceive it as a different reality with the help of particles like photon. This is what quantum physics says which is at microscopic level. But some of us say that at macroscopic level the reality is different and objects do not behave like subatomic particles. Living beings are made of cells and there are millions of cells in our body. The behavior or characteristics of the being is the probabilistic behavior of all the cells which is impossible to determine and so we all think differently. Reality is a state of mind and hence we can say that reality exists in probabilities and so changes from model to model or from person to person. This is what is known as Model dependent realism according to famous scientist Stephen Hawkins. But apart from this, there is one more problem when we include dark energy and dark matter. Through recent discoveries, it had been found that approximately there is only five percent matter which is visible or observable to us and the rest is dark matter and dark energy which do not interact with the matter we see in this universe. This dark energy and matter make galaxies and is also accelerating the expansion of the universe and we can’t observe it because it do not interact with the matter we see or observe. So once again reality is hidden as we are having knowledge of only five percent of our universe.
We are like sleeping in the world of dreams and our lives are just illusions. Whether we would be able to know about the truth or not in the future but one thing is for sure that we have the power of conscience to understand things and it will always guide us towards right path. Till then our quest is on.
There lived a restless soul in the mist of time,
Who was in the quest of truth of life .
He started his journey in the world of darkness,
in the world of sufferings and in the world of ignorance.
He searched for glory and searched for signs,
But he struggled to find the eternal sunshine.
All hopes were fainting, all joy was lost
And he waited for the miracle from the sky above.
Then a light came from a sage, he met.
The truth is felicity in the doing for others,
The victory is Karma and not in its result,
The felony is idleness and not endeavors,
The truth is perseverance, the sage said.
He took the light and decided to spread,
And he washed the miseries and pain of others.
He rose and fell but never got success,
But his joy was Karma and not its result.
One day he faced the question of life,
Either to save the life or to live with regret?
A decision to make that no one would forget!
Then a warrior rose to show the world,
To live for others and to die for others,
Is the ultimate goal and the joy of soul.
At the brink of death, he got the glimpse of past,
It was the glorious life which he got at last.
And then he perished saving a life ,
Finding peace in grave , and content below,
Making pride and honor, his pillow.
In time , people will praise his act of sacrifice,
his act of Karma and his act of divine.
He sacrificed his life to give life,
But people made him immortal by telling-
A tale of sacrifice…

We understand the phenomenon of light with the help of its duality ( the wave nature and the particle nature). In the same way we can try to understand God with the help of its duality i.e. its materialistic nature and its spiritualistic nature. The materialistic science is the modern science or the observable science which is the base of all technologies in this world. The spiritualistic science is the science of conscience, theology and philosophy .
We are very advance in materialistic science but are we advance in spiritualistic science? The answer is no but our ancestors were advanced in spiritualistic science so can we say that we are more advanced than our ancestors?
Our ancestors specially in the Vedic era had the power of focus or meditation and they were able to achieve anything impossible with the help of focus. According to noetic science , our thoughts have mass. So if our thoughts have mass then it follows Newton’s law of gravitation according to which , every body in the universe attracts any other body unless and until an external force acts on it. We have heard that our ancient gurus or sages had a strong power of focus that means the mass of their thoughts must have been greater than ours and so they were able to lift anything or were able to do anything which we call miracle just by strong attracting power of focus.
The meditation also has a healing power which makes the pineal gland of brain to produce a wax like substance which heals or refreshes the old cells and therefore reduces the rate of aging. Maybe the elixir of life or somras according to hindu mythology is the power of meditation only.
With time our focusing power deteriorated and now with so many distractions in this technological world we hardly able to focus on anything and so our spiritual knowledge or power has lost. We totally are dependent on materialistic science and always try to find answers with the help of it but we don’t know that the truth can be found by uniting both spiritualistic and materialistic science. Maybe something which can’t be explained by materialistic science can be explained by spiritual science but we don’t know because we are not advance in spiritualistic science. The limit of materialistic science is the place where the realm of spiritual science begin and we have yet not reached that place in materialistic science.
Faith is very important ,it checks corruption , it inspires us to be good and it inspires us to believe in something which we can’t see or prove. Therefore we should try to regain that lost wisdom of our forefathers and unite it with our knowledge of materialistic science to find answers about our creator . We will always get inspiration and the recent inspiration which we got is the discovery of God particle (Boson particle) which is a force particle and since every other particle in the universe evolve from this particle , that’s why we call it a creator. This is a big discovery in our quest of finding the truth but until then we should believe in God and follow the path of Karma showed to us by our ancestors through holy books .
