Let not failures go to the heart as the poison to the blood! Let not failures make farce the great cause! Let not failures make false the true ones! Success or failure does not end the game, but the ultimate one!
What is the Ultimate One? We live only to know. Neither have we known the beginning nor the end of all things. Instead of thinking this way what way we think, live and spend our time?
Life is not just for eating, working and loving; but life is for living a life of achievement. What best thing one can achieve, one should think; explore new things or discover new continents in the Eureka, America and India spirit like Archimedes, Columbus and Vasco Da Gama did!
Then came Galileo, Newton, Einstein and others and revolutionized the thought and advancement of the world! Now the exploration is the ultimate in the outer space - Space-Time, Matter-Mind, Nature-Spirit and Man-God! These Locke-Hume, Spinoza-Kant, Vivekananda-Aurobindo thought and expressed ultimate thoughts for mankind to probe and proceed further.
The pursuit of creative culture is perfection; and the pursuit of perfection is endless effort in Ultimate Reality. Such exploration of the ultimate in everything offers knowledge of truth of the beginning and the end both reversible and irreversible.
The world is a wonder suspended in the Universe, a suspension of a particle of saw-dust in a liquid full of life! Like a potter making a perfect pot out of clay the supreme creator has finally evolved man out of animal. Satisfied and stopped creating anything further leaving man to evolve himself higher with his mind. Man with his mind developed himself into an intelligent man. Discovered spirit and is evolving himself further into a Superman, perhaps to become finally one with the Supreme Creator.
So long knowing little the secret of the beginning and the end we live in suspense awfully wondering at the supremacy of the absolute power of the Almighty. Otherwise, man would have already excelled God long ago! Yet, with the infinite power it’s proper for man only to pursue higher in Science, Philosophy, Art, Literature and Religion, which is the way perhaps to work and fulfil the will of god!
The spirit, old wine in a new bottle God (Death) allows a change God (Time) does without letting it known to anyone beforehand so far and so forth in the world so that man cannot overcome work and stop working! So, we work for redemption, work higher for real satisfaction and salvation.
Space, when compressed to a speck, is nothing but a Spirit, the yet inconceivable Black Hole of the Universe to the scientists. The beginning and the end are nothing, if immaterial to the atheists. But this apparent nothing is the actual Spirit behind everything that activates the whole Universe, Nature, World and Man.
Only this ultimate one could be the be all and the end all, which is the imminent, the transcendental and the unknowable Truth-Spirit, before which our material and intellectual powers are matchless and meaningless. But through our intuitional and spiritual powers alone could we unravel and realize it.
It’s foolish not to take efforts to know this unknowable. The success or the failure of this competitive world makes sick and fool of us. But only the intuitional and spiritual pursuits towards this ultimate truth make one wise. Perhaps this world is there for the materialistic and that world is there for the spiritualistic; but no world is there for the intuitionally non-intellectualistic.
