STRESS AND FREEDOM: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR
STRESS AND FREEDOM: DR. SHRINIWAS KASHALIKAR

We experience STRESS; when our freedom is jeopardized.

In cellular jails the freedom is throttled in terms of even making movements and meeting people apart from all other things. Vast majority of suffer from lack of freedom of availability; of security, food, water, clothes, shelter, health care and education.

Lack of freedom of building shelters, cultivating and using medicinal herbs, cultivating land, running businesses etc; because of coercive and harrowing license system; or throttling restrictive laws; is denial of freedom.

Lack of freedom of moving to other countries, doing business in other countries, expressing ourselves in paintings, music, literature, movies, dramas and so on; is also a STRESSOR.

Lack of freedom from superstitions is also a major STRESSOR!

Thus; both the atheism and theism harbor the superstition of believing blindly; in existence and nonexistence of God.

The word existence is actually very deep and meaningful. We tend to ignore the deeper aspects of this word! Existence of a stone, existence of electricity, existence of laser rays, existence of space, existence of time, existence of a bird, existence of a boy, existence of mind, existence of feeling, existence of thoughts all are described by a single word existence. As a result of ignoring the different meanings of the word “existence”, the followers of so called atheism and theism go on arguing endlessly! Due to lack of appreciation of these meanings of the word, the truth i.e. the sense of satisfaction, unity, fearlessness, joy etc. keep on eluding us.

Let us understand that The God does not “exist” and does not “non-exist”; in routine sense of the word existence! The God experience is beyond the routine, crude and restrictive meaning of the word “exist”!

Lack of freedom to assert our conscience causes major STRESS. This is due to obstacles in our blossoming; such as; bigotry, religious and racial impositions, vested interests, fanaticism, terrorism, and pettiness of perspective, policies, plans, programs, and transactions inside and outside us! This imprisonment is fortified by restrictive laws, conventions, traditions, fashions, beliefs, films, literature, media and advertising.

Lack of freedom to be together (physically and mentally) also causes STRESS. We do not realize the unifying link, between us and others. Actually; every particle is connected by gravity, space, time and so on, and similarly but not exactly in the same way; we are connected with others; through consciousness.

When we define and hail political freedom; we have to consider these different aspects of freedom and see; whether majority of us in the world are FREE! Then we can work together; for total freedom to realize the unifying link. Moreover; through our perspective, thinking, policies, plans, administration, arts and creative efforts; create an atmosphere conducive to such individual and universal blossoming.

This is possible through the practice NAMASMARAN (JAAP, JAP, JIKRA) i.e. reorientation and realizing true self; supplemented by complementary efforts; in different walks of life. This is a process of overcoming subjectivity and being objective as taught by the immortal gurus; and is a core of Total Stress Management, superliving or holistic renaissance.
