This world is a maya, which means a dream. We all of us are born alone with absolutely nothing and we will be departing at death also with nothing. So the in between time period of birth and death is called life. And we people are so serious about this dream of life. We think this dream is true and permanent.
Unless someone completely liberates, his or her death in this life is temporary. After death we arrive somewhere else as a new being in different form.
Most of us are seeking knowledge, which means we are looking to borrow the ideas of others. Knowledge that we gather is something what has been told by somebody. But the experience is different. The real thing is what we truly experience.
About the Nirwana we people know a lot. How do we know is we know it by gathering the knowledge from the things what others told us etc. Our minds also add so much in to this. So does the word "Nirwana" carry it's real experience or true meaning? no.
Experience is the real truth. What we think is false.
The moment mind stops we connect to such a beautiful place with silence. Very peaceful. The same thing happens when we look deeper within and look for this "I". Where is "I" ? Can you find, where to find. This takes us very very deep. You only find the beautiful silence there.
The more we see the truth in this world and the reality within life, we need to become more compassionate and gentle.
Because when you see that people, due to the reason they have not realized this world is a maya, they think it is true and trying so many ways to maintain permanence as well as they are seeking happiness from one after the other etc. Huge percentage of people are on a unsatisfied journey continuously running. Even if someone point the finger and show them truth, they do not want to believe. Because the "lie" has gone in to them as a truth. They only know about it. So once we start seeing reality our hearts need more compassion.
The moment we experience something and realize it..... then it is within us. Realizing the truth, coming to the center, going beyond the mind all these are experiences which we humans can get. You can never get the real experience only by knowing it.
Example is we can say many things about meditation with our knowledge, this that and other thing. But when truly experience meditation then only you realize it. There is no way realization happen with knowledge. All concepts, ideas has to be dropped.
