Kodaikanal: A Cosmic Journey


The cosmic voice of the infinite spoke. All is one. It's easier to understand now.

Nataraja's dance envolopes those in his presence, locked in a trance yet an infinite cosmic journey. All is one. A single life seems so insignificant when you flow through the river of life.

Kodai. So beautiful. the mists shrouded valleys, winding pathways through entwined greenery. The oneness with all, is dreamy and filled with fits of laughter.

Looking for the Hobbits and Galdalf. The bugs and spiders, the Pear trees, yellow and violet vibrant flowers.

A great cosmic voice guides you. Saying that everything's at its right place. You are at the right place, flowing through a river of trance.

Michael Jackson dies: His music will live forever.

Just saw the news on the web about the passing away of the king of pop, Micheal Jackson in Los Angeles. He reportedly had a cardiac arrest and paramedics were unable to revive him. He was 50 years of age. He was rehearsing in L.A for extraordinary comeback gigs scheduled for this July.

I'm not sure there's anyone in my generation who have not heard and not liked Micheal Jackson's music. His album "Thriller" is considered one of the greatest albums of all time. He's rated with the great music legends such as The Beatles and Elvis.

The world will miss him. May his soul journey to the great cosmic spirit.

More news on this here.

Flashbacks from Nitrogen

I'm wondering how many more crossroads lie ahead on this winding path that I walk. It's true, 'life is just a dream', although a bit confusing with the 'social norms' and various constitutions of governments, who's sole intent is just to control the people's mind and body. Not all are capable of realizing that the physical restrictions cannot imprison your soul.

But every time I came across a crossroad in the past, little did I realize that the choices I had before me could alter my life forever. And each time I felt that those choices were mostly influenced by these external or physical components rather than from within my inner aura. Or so I still think.

Ten years ago, in 1999 I did PADI instructor development program and became an Open Water Dive Instructor(OWSI). I was barely able to apply then as I was 18, ( I was told nobody had done it in Maldives at that time at the minimum age possible), and I had been certified in open water course a year before. I just completed my Dive master at Sea Explorers and worked for a month, until I was told by a senior instructor that why don't I go to the IDC. The PADI regulations are a bit loose now where you only need to be certified only 6 months and other requirements such as need to become an assistant intructor before applying for OWSI.

Ironic thing was when I did my first Open Water course in Embudu Village with a couple of friends, I was the only one who failed in the final written exam of the course and had to redo it. I was butt of that joke for sometime. And a year later when the same friends wanted to do the next course, which was Advanced open water course, here I was the instructor doing it for them. hehe.

As I retrospect on this chapter of my life and during the time I worked for few years in two dive schools in Male', I can't but wonder where had I reached that crossroad which made me go away from diving and completely altered the course of my life. If I had continued diving as a career, eventually I would have left Male' and it would have changed my life completely. I can't say I whether I would have regretted it or not.

Its actually really clear what made me change my career. And contemplating about it won't change anything. But I have very fond memories of those days, when I had the chance to introduce people to a new world, a world where everything was full of peace and harmony. I have always loved the ocean, there's always been a deep lure behind the tranquil sway of the waves. And once you feel the peace of the underwater experience, being emerged into an AUM in itself, its hard to forget it. And thats just without the beauty and grace of the corals.

Perhaps one day I might return to it.

What's the scene?

Hello Hello Hello

Stretch fingers, check!

Its been a while since I have written on this blog. I've been away doing nothing, just entangled in a mental & physical journey, traveling. All this time, things that I thought mattered to me have deteriorated.

Project Moo coming up soon to the blog. Conversation with Shiva and a dream for the trance dance experience to pass into Maldives.

Immersed in a culture of diversity and religion. Its a shame the materialistic devils in us have killed the spiritual understanding, limited as it was. I'm sad Maldives has been disappointing, year after year.

With religious fundamental blind folds, our nation is bankrupt not only financially, but every other wise.

But I'm determined to continue my journey, to find a better spiritual platform.
