Shades of Life

There are many different shades of life presented by the many experiences and influences brought into our surroundings.

We have one great expectation to grow in our life and to make it better all the time, looking forward to perhaps an unreachable dream. Those who believe in the Divine Creator know that life is fare-most the greatest gift and that life is sealed by the Grace of salvation making us able to live by a still greater expectation of a better world to come. With that hope by the Grace of Salvation we can nurture our personal choice to opt the option of living and enjoy every moment we receive from the Creator. For that life we should be thankful for each blessing in our present life and the other life still to come and hoped for.

In our life where may be the shadow of all those experiences and special moments of life?  The memories which can build up our life and make our book of life a great story-book to accompany us on paths still unknown.
We may not be any more the one we were when we were a child. All those experience , which we liked and did not like, have moulded us in an other child. The innocence of our childhood is gone. But by the years we become softer and perhaps less experimenting, putting much more in perspective.   When older the empty days can be filled with memories.

Life may be going on for no reason, but we can give a lot of reason to our life, and that is what we should do.

RAY OF SUNSHINE रश्मि🌿

“Among infinite shades of life, you can’t claim any one shade as The best or The worst. Life is so unpredictable.

Soulmate life

Walks with me like my shadow Amalgamated life
Time flies likeblink of eyes, though
Unswayed life

Lives in the hope of living and pray
Aspired life
Lost in the memories of yesterday
Ignorant life

Freely savour the present moment
Pithy life
Cherish the future’s golden element
Relentless life

Resonates the music of laughter
Melodious life
Takes the shower of tears
Morose life

Butstillhowbeautiful, yet
Accessiblelife

हमसफ़रजिंदगी

साये की तरह साथ चलती ये
रहगुज़र जिंदगी
मेरे हाथों से छूटता वक्त है फिर भी कितनी
बेअसर जिंदगी

जीने के आस में हरवक्त रहती ये
अग्रसर जिंदगी
कभी कल की याद में खोई हुई ये
बेख़बर जिंदगी

कभी आज को खुल के जीती हुई ये
मुख़्तसर जिंदगी
कल के सुनहरे सपने सजातीे रहती

Moral Patterns and Moral Decisions

All human beings were created in the image of the Divine Creator and as such got implanted in them brains which could think or reason. After getting to know good and evil, each one of us has the instinct for knowing the difference and having the choice to choose between good and evil.

Too many christians do think because they are saved they do not have to obey the commandments of God. They are so wrong and deceiving themselves. Still today they have to base their moral reasoning on obeying rules (deontology), on producing good results (utilitarianism), on imagining what a good person would do (ideal observer theory) we daily having to recognize the often heartbreaking difficulty of moral choice, letting us engage both logic and feeling.

To remember

  • we always want things to be simple =/= just intellectual laziness => Our minds automatically prefer things that are simple + symmetrical
  • 20th century, Gestalt psychology explored how we find patterns in information > Pattern-finding = one reason our memories are often unreliable.
  • moral decision =/= always simple >requires more than just logic => also requires feeling, imagination, + courage.
  • God gave us both intelligence + conscience. => giving us questions => expecting us to figure out the answers

Gestalt-PatternsMy new blog post for The Jerusalem Post:

Some things in life are simple. Some aren’t. In fact, a lot of them aren’t.

That’s a problem, because we always want things to be simple. And if they aren’t, then we still try to see them as being that way.

It’s not just intellectual laziness. Our minds automatically prefer things that are simple and symmetrical, whether they are political ideas, scientific theories, melodies, or geometrical shapes.

In the 20th century, Gestalt psychology explored how we find patterns in information, even if the patterns aren’t really there. Pattern-finding is one reason that our memories are often unreliable. If a past event didn’t make sense to us, then when we remember it, we unconsciously impose a pattern so that it makes sense in retrospect.

Moral situations are often too complex to fit into simple patterns or be solved by simple moral principles. Consider…

There are two kinds of knowing


There are two kinds of knowing
– experience and understanding –
and the confusion between them is
the cause of all sorts of trouble for any thinking person – which is all of us

Experience is the knowing of things. It is exactly what appears to our senses precisely as it is without us doing anything. It is immediately and directly present to awareness with no mediating activity.

Understanding is the knowing about things. It comes to us in the form of the inner language of thought.

Reason is intuitive knowing. It is the self evident knowing that isn’t derived from rational deduction. It is directly perceived pure awareness. Understanding is the knowing-about-things that is contained in explanations, interpretations and logic.
