Conscious Administration/Governance. Who is in Control? Who is God?

On my return to Delhi few years ago. I found that the collective has many questions. Is it telepathy/thought flow/mind space/controlled emotions/mind/mental/intellect/tuning/connection/energy/structures? Who is in control? Who is God? How does this world work? Who runs it?

Consciousness is One. There is also Individual. There is personality. Conscious choices.

Consciousness is beyond mind/heart/body. There is a collective consciousness. That is where we are One. That is Godliness. Qualitative human excellence.

I am in tune with that. We make collective choices to change who we are as human beings. My path to accepting that I must become President of Asia 2040 is not an individual choice. It is something brought upon me because of the journey. This is the path forward.

On my return I kept telling the collective conscious as a conclusion to discussions/questions being asked that they must join politics/political parties and make changes on an administrative level for the best of this planet. To the ones who want to find out who is in control. I joke now and say dial 100 number for the police control room. 😀

I was busy with my ceramic work, Looking for my husband and dealing with my family situation.

Those discussions have boomeranged. I knew of taking responsibility before (having the ability to respond). Yes I have finished my spiritual practice/learning/experience. Had so much of enlightenment, that I realized, sitting on this mountain can be an addiction. I decided to walk around and look at what else is going on.

Yes I know that changes need to manifest. We make changes as a collective. To make these changes in the most educated/organized/legal method is to join politics. Human beings from cave men have gotten thus far. We have paper notes as currency for money and not barter system. We have organized ourselves into administration/governance/countries/governments.

Conscious governance/administration is the path. Not just being used by this collective consciousness.

As an individual consciousness. I have worked many years and awakened myself. Died before death many times. This qualitative being has been shared time and time again with others who are awakened/chosen through the collective consciousness. I ask for a Department of Enlightenment to protect myself from other not-conscious beings. I am compassionate towards them. Choosing peace even when they want to fight. I don’t believe in the old Gandhian method of give your other cheek. That is not the world we live in. We need to step back to protect ourselves. I distance myself to start with and continue communication in a more formal tone/method.

Control/God?

Who is in control of a situation? Who is in charge? Who is responsible? The collective is together, we are responsible. We have to constantly change. When we know better we do better. There is no one answer. There are so many different dimensions/realities/levels/planes of existence at play/work together. I chose not to just play and consider it a game. It is life, we have to live it. Our choices are important to narrow down to our sense of reality/truth. Otherwise legality will not have any value. I give power to the Prime Ministers/Presidents by the choices I make. On a legal level they are choosen by the collective through the method of fair and free elections.

I am in control of my choices. As a conscious being (This is not conscious/unconscious medically speaking. Or conscious/aware from the educated perspective but conscious from the spirtual/higher plane of existance). Spiritual consciousness includes experiencing being the creator/maker.

People want to know who is incharge? Who is the decision maker? Each of us is and on a legal level we give power to the elected to make decisions for us. I am your spiritual guide ’cause I am part of this Godliness that prevails on this Earth – the collective superconsciousness. Yes we guide you. You have a body that is physical/material. There is non-material that guides you.

If you try to fight the spiritual/spirit/soul in yourself…you just hurt your ownselves and the collective. You all want to become Gods. The method is not through becoming Presidents/Prime Ministers (to rule and have power over people. It will only be a power trip). Not through becoming the richest men/women (it will only be a money trip). Not through becoming the sexiest/most famous actor/supermodel (it will only be a sex trip). You can enjoy these trips. But the qualitative human journey/path is inward. The self to the self. Discovering ‘who I am’. Becoming a God, inside. To want to be a God in the body for others is another trip. The spiritual trip. Go beyond that trip. Work in the world. Humankind. Consciousness. The planet. Don’t follow my words or whatever little you understand of it. Find yourself! 😀

Good Governance

Good Governance on my mind
It’s not sacrifice and service.
It’s not – be servant and not master. Be aware of power trips
It’s not – Desh Bhakti

It is the best for the individual and the nation.
It is master of oneself.
Working from the best in oneself for the best.
It’s conscious governance.

Branding & Brand Consciousness: Racing to Save the Planet

Established Brands are mostly responsible.

Big well know brands are often questioned about the quality of products, where the raw materials are sourced from and if they are child-safe, chemical-free, fair trade. What they stand for as an organization, how happy their employees are, how they give back to society, where/how their profits are invested, what are their sister concerns/companies/organizations and how they take responsibility to save the planet etc.

As consumers we are ‘Brand Conscious’. We are aware about where we invest/spend our money. Who makes the profit and how it’s spent.

I asked my nephew Viraj one day, “Do you know what the ‘Messi’ on the t-shirt means?”. I asked him whether he knew the brand/person he was supporting. 

I wondered on my return to the city – felt quite proud of what was being created in Delhi NCR. The AAP political party. But wondered about the choice of the broom as the symbol of the party (perhaps the election commissioners office selects a symbol?!) They could have used something more hi-tech like an automated robot that cleans. 😀 And the current chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal, who is the leader of the AAP. On hearing him on the radio for the first time. I wished for him to get some good voice modulation lessons. A man representing this political brand AAP.

On an individual level we are brands unto ourselves. Making an effort to be qualitative humans individually and then collectively. 

Each of us is born enlightened. Some of us become aware of our own enlightenment through spiritual/religious practice. There are spiritual/religious brands in this world like the Dalai Lama,  the Pope.

Being conscious of the collective and how brands are changing the world, setting trends with release/updates of new products.

There are some famous brand wars such as Pepsi and Coca-Cola, Apple and Samsung.

Sometimes companies copyright colours like the coke red. And sometimes they are able to gain popularity by the subconscious minds of humans. Ask anyone A for___. The answer is always Apple.(It’s time to teach children A for A, B for B, C for C etc.)

Hope brands such as the Micheline stars, Oscars and Olympics are on the cards for India.

We are winning the race to save the planet through brand consciousness.

Satyamev Jayate

Truth Wins!

“Satyameva Jayate” (Sanskrit: सत्यमेव जयते satyam-eva jayate; lit. “Truth alone triumphs.”) is a mantra from the ancient Indian scripture Mundaka Upanishad. Following the independence of India, it was adopted as the national motto of India in May 1949. It is inscribed in script at the base of the national emblem.

Showing next to the image of the balance, my original signature as a ceramic artist. It means balance. 

I was surprised to sign this as my name the day I made my first ceramic. Without thought, I just turned it around and made it at the base of the first pinched pot. 

Growing up I was inspired by ‘being truthful’. Born on the same day as the father of the nation India. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.

I learnt through my journey to create more balance in life. Always balance between personal and professional life! 

When I was teaching the path of Beauty/Sundram, I wished to add to the techniques of balance. I wished to add rope walking which i had once experienced in the neyyardam ashram in kerala (This is one of the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres in South India http://sivananda.org.in/neyyardam/) Wished to learn myself and then teach the sport of balancing on the line/slacklining.  It culminated when I returned to Delhi. There are free sessions available in Deer Park every Sunday (https://m.facebook.com/groups/151612535035099?ref=bookmarks)

There is a note worthy movie about this art/sport- The Walk. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt3488710/

I had gone for 12 years of intense spiritual practice away from the city I was born and brought up in. “Isn’t it needed to go into something with intensity?” Someone asks. It is, is my answer, if you want it bad and need it in your life. How else would I have become enlightened and then returned to the city I was born in. To my roots, to work and marry and lead a happy married life!

Have already changed my sign to my studio logo – Talking Clay. Read more about it – https://talkingclay.wordpress.com/2017/01/29/talking-about-the-talking-clay-studio-logo/

Looking forward to my future!

Ceramic Designers and Producers


Appreciate
Designers for being Designers
Producers for being Producers
Mixing the two as one person
Takes away from the
Possibilities
Imagination/Innovation
Gets confined if too much
Technique is involved
The mind starts to
Restrict Possibility
So Please
Appreciate
Designers for being Designers
Producers for being Producers

Exceptions on Occasion
New Eyes, Child-likeness, Amazement, Immense Joy, Fullness…

Snowfall – artistic & scientific

Glazed Stoneware Ceramic Bowl Set. Talc Deposits pooling together = Glaze not melted completely for some Or Snowfall near Christmas for some.

 

Sometimes we get so technical/scientific, that even our eyes betray us. Only ‘new eyes’ can see beauty/design.

Sometimes we get so caught-up in the aesthetics, that we get blocked and stay stuck without experimenting and breaking boundaries.

Have we as humans developed to a point/time of balancing these aspects of the scientific & the artistic?

Big Bang Theory is passé. My all time favorite cartoon movie is not Tangled. It’s Shrek – part 1.

Cheers ! For this merry season. Snowfall !!

Talking Brand Consciousness – ‘Do you Pot?’

Brand Identity/Awareness/Consciousness. Talking Economic-Social-Political-Response-Ability. Though I had studied branding during my Design Education; I never at that point imagined, that Brands get created this way. So. I represent myself as an artist – Through my artwork and then also through … Continue reading
