It is pure mathematics. Of course I am not talking about astrology. I am talking about the economics involved in being on the Television as an astrologer. There are two ways any astrologer can get on to the television – one by blabbering daily predictions during the morning hours when most of the people are either brushing their teeth or shitting in the bathroom. Or launch your own Astro program on Television for a fee at a mutually agreed time slot. (Remember prime slot is always booked for thundering thighs).

I am neither a fan of Ramana Maharishi nor his disciple. He was destined to get enlightened and he did. And his way of negation doesn’t and will not suit everyone on the path of spirituality. “you are not your senses, you are not your body, you are not your thoughts, then who are you?” The statements sound exciting and easy but do not help you much in the longer run. You will keep asking “Who am I?” And the answer will remain the same, ‘You’ are ‘You’!
I am back, and I should admit that I had an awesome time in seclusion. I think there is nothing like being ‘alone’ once in a while or when you really want to. And I am glad that I did this, when I was happy about how life is treating me. I read somewhere – only a happy mind can meditate, and I cannot disagree to that statement.
This is the first time I am doing this alone. I am cutting myself off from all communication and communication devices for 3 days and I am going far away from the maddening crowd. I will be roaming around as ‘nobody’ in an unknown place. I am already excited about the value time I will be spending with myself and of course God! Inshallah – I would love to spend these 3 days in complete silence. Will blog about the experience when I am back!
This particular blog is the last in this series as 9 happens to be my lucky number!
Thrilled with the divine skill of seeing things and the psychic ability to crack human life patterns, I very ‘badly’ wanted to help people in a major way. Thankfully I didn’t run nude like Archimedes did after the revelation. But I at least ran till Mayajaal – a multi-plex on ECR - where they were conducting special programmes for Pongal. The deal wasn’t good, but then money wasn’t that I was looking for. All I wanted to do was to help some sincere seekers.
There are only two concepts in astrology – good time and bad time. Good time is when things go the way you want, and also when external events are in synch with the inner list of dreams and perception you carry. Bad time is when things go the way God wants it, and when the external events are in complete mismatch with your inner list of things. You neither can avoid good things happening in your life nor can escape bad things. Life becomes an interesting journey when you start seeing your own life from a third man’s perspective, which eventually helps you to accept that both good and bad are two sides of the same coin. Both good and bad are all part of the divine plan.
