The Reflected Reality

Hiding in the shadow of trees and watching the nature’s act. I was sitting near my usual work place and waiting for the rain to stop. Gazing at the nature around, I went into my world of fantasies and imagination, embellishing each pixel of my dream world with colors and sound.
Pitter-patter of rain with blue sky or green leaves with rhythmic buzz. Sound with colors and color with sounds. Embracing this mixture and painting my canvas of creativity. I met with the reflected reality of life. A reality that was reflected in the stagnated water caused due to the liquid sunshine.,The reflecting big trees, the blue sky and the pale water, all this created a new world of its own. The colors were different. The sky was no longer blue. The sound had a new definition. It was no more a sound but a wave inside the water, travelling in different directions. Everything seems to be so different, merged into the reflection of water. The actuality was same. But the reflection was different.
We all are living with a water reflection in our minds. Through this reflection we try to judge and categorize our self and others. This reflection becomes our world. We divide all in right and wrong. Good or bad. But we leave the fact that we are perceiving things through a reflection. Beyond this reflection lies the actuality. Actuality of the reality which cannot be delineated, It can only be experienced because the act of describing is itself a reflection. This naïve realism that we are carrying all along our lives that the world is as it is what we see. Is the biggest cause for our sufferings and going beyond this realism to the actuality is what awareness all about. Perceiving things without this water reflection is true awareness.
People often are in a confused state about different religions that how can there be different gods for same kind of human beings. But the reality is same with a different reflection. Every religion is reflecting the path towards the actuality of life in a different way. We all are confused within these paths considering paths as the reality. But the truth is reality cannot be described. Because then it becomes reflected reality. The actual reality is beyond the time and space. The biggest fact is that we are creating time and space, not the time and space is creating us …                                       
“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘universe’, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affectation for a few people near us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” – Albert Einstein
