Have you ever noticed how some things that come free are priceless and somethings which cost a lot of money are valueless? If you haven’t then you are surely blinded by what appears, limited by the tangible dimension of reality and starved off inner peace.
Man has become so fascinated by visible mediocrity that he has forgotten the charm of Invisible Mesmrism. Beauty is only skin deep and that is what this generation believes in. Their tangible wants outnumber their intangible traits. Thus taking them on an endless race away from inner peace.

Once you move inwards the noise mutes by itself. Inner peace won't come easy, only when you have associated with noise will you recognise the value of inner peace. During my most testing moments, maybe when I am lifting a testing weight, hanging single handedly on a bar or doing an asana which makes my soul more flexible, do I get to taste this elusive feeling of inner peace. Then I carry this beautiful feeling with me….
The Intangible Vs The Tangible
Allowing oneself to be shaped by the tangible elements of the world,
- Being influenced by appearance and objectification of beauty
- Idol worship and monetization of God
- Greed and endless race for Material Possession
- Physical makeup than mental makeup
is a curse which takes the shine out of life sooner than later. This not only compels you to live your life an an endless rat race but also comes in between your spiritual awakening, the only thing capable of saving you from the curse of tangible influence.
The 4 points above detract you from the more soul nourishing intangible aspects of reality ,
- The nectar of your and any other soul is much much more than what is visible to eyes
- God is inside you, working for your own inner peace is the best form of devotion. The currency for making offerings is Good Karma.
- There is more pleasure in giving than getting, be greedy to ohelp more people
- If you have inner peace, it shines through, giving you a natural makeup better than any face mask you where to hide your inner ugliness.
The intangible imbalance usually leads to a lot of dysfunction in in the way of their lifestyle which often shows tangible consequences in the form of bad health stress and eventually disharmony and lack of inner peace.
East Vs West
The other day one of my friends had the audacity, all my inner circle friends are audacious to represent their thoughts transparently, of stating, ” Nowadays, A westerner is better in the Eastern way of life, than the easterner himself”
Again we have been caught up with the tangible aspects of our own great spiritual past. Most ancient writings, sermons and books are lost in translation. Rendering people to be soulless God Fearing confident less material collectors (sorry, not sorry for the harsh words) and this is what they pass over to the next generation.
You never experience western culture first hand, what you see isi the over glamorized digital or movie based version, which you try to ape. The thing with spying someone partially is that, it adds to the confusion in your own identity rather than getting you a newer thought process.
So straight from bizarre fashion trends, getting caught up by advertising schemes to trying to be pseudo independent(with the comforts of the parents in the back of the head), the easterners want to be the westerners they see on TV.
So to experience real western life, you will need to spend some years there, even your vacations spent in comfort and cozy environments aren’t enough. Then make the decision to copy them or not.
The modern Indian prefers being a fake imitation of the partial western life observed by his narrow vision to act temporarily rich. The Modern westerner, on the contrary, seeps himself into the Indian environment, and is making most of our spiritual wealth to make himself eternally priceless with inner peace
You might see a perfectly happy person posting the best selfies and quotations on social media. But this shows only half of the truth. The portrayal of happiness which is so much in Vogue these days is not actual happiness. This again throws light on the tangibly whole and intangibly hollow state of affairs.
Intangible traits, which are often overlooked, carry the keys to a better lifestyle, and inner peace do not ignore them. What appears to the eye is blinding.
