My philosophy

I recently finished my 12th std.So had and still have actually, a lotta time on my hands.So after getting bored reading 'Atlas Shrugged'(which by the way is a fantastic book!),bored of watching all the seasons of 'Friends' and plain bored of just lying down,I thought of....yeah,that seems to be a good idea...I thought of thinking....u know just thinking....about stuff like life and how we all came to be what we are and I came up with this amazing philosophy.Its bloody good!!But conditions apply.You have to believe in Karma to understand my philosophy and you have to know a tad bit about 'advaita' by Swami Shankaracharya.If you fulfil these conditions,go ahead and delve into my spiritual knowledge.
The simple thing about 'karma' is that whatever you do,comes back to you.If you do good,well,get ready to receive some of it.The same works the other way round.So if you trace back 'karma' to its roots,if you think back and realise that to start this complicated cycle of bad and good and good and bad,there must be a beginning.There must be an initiation at some point in the history of time.There must be one man who started the bad and thus initiated the cycle.Once human being evolved and had the capacity to think for himself,he formed communities and lived with people of his kind.The first knowledge of bad he had,the first selfish purpose and the first wickedness of thought to achieve ends by non-desirablemeans is what I'd like to call-God.Voila!There is my present thought on the ever interesting topic of spirituality.I know this thought has many loopholes.I'm not that well read in philosophical aspect.But as this was a totally original thought and something I'd want to believe in,I thought it was worth sharing with intelligent people who would want to comment on it.So fellow bloggers,please go ahead and share your views on my write....

call it god if u wish....but dont u think god must have been created with the first thought, rather than the first bad thought? what do u say?

Shruti said...

hmm i thought abt it a lot and yes,i cud think of it tht way....but u see,the 'thought' process was all normal...the 'bad thought' was something different and to initiate karma,u need a contradiction to good(come to think of it,there was no 'good' until 'bad' showed up!)...so my philosophy was the difference the bad thought brought....i want to believe that people started thinking about an entity called god once the bad started....nobody thinks of a higher power during good times do they?

"come to think of it,there was no 'good' until 'bad' showed up!..."
thats what i wanted to say...so the first thought - would u classify it good or bad...or more precisely - the first bad act, how would they know it is bad, until there was good. and the first good act, how would they know it was good, till, they knew abt bad....so to overcome his paradox, they should have thought of god with their first thougt...eureka!!!! cant belive i argued out that :)

Shruti said...

thts it...they dint know what was bad...nor do we know what is god!;)

a new philosopher is born said...

no yaar u didt get me...i said, the moment they know bad, they know good and vice versa....that is they learnt good and bad at the same time.....that is the knowledge was born in a jiffy, or by god....or knowledge existed before and so did god....what i wanted to convey..ifu read my previous comment, god came with our first thought...so to say consciousness.....

m tired of arguing dude!u see,if u knew me in person ud know im the kinda person who gives up real quick and i never stand up for wat i believe in(except vegetarianism)...so if u think my philosophy is flawed,go ahead...i have no qualms...have it ur way...i do get ur point...but i do not necessarily agree with it...

a new philosopher is born said...

thats so sad....giving up on ur ideas...
hey as for arguements, they mean nothing to me....i was arguing for fun sake...i dont belive ur arguemnts are flawed...nor do i belive they are right...i dont think abt ur arguemnts till it reaches my gmail....
just for fun....so go ahead.....and write other posts...i will not disturb u with silly arguements....i prefer to argue with people, who love arguemnt for arguemnt sake.....good luck with ur blog

I kinda agree with your philosophy. Although there exists serendipity (which Kriti is oblivious of :P) i have greater belief in "necessity is the mother of invention". And the advent of 'Bad' necessitated the greatest invention of Mankind, "The God". And i agree that man defined 'Good'(the definition is again a Huge topic to discuss over) only after 'Bad'(Although there are certain philosophers who define good and claim there is nothing bad) came into existance. And i'm pretty sure your beta-version philosophy must have undergone lot of fine tuning in last one and half years and I'm interested in knowing the latest version it :)
