Who am I? I am in this universe as much as it is in I. What is I? I is sphere full of love. Imagination is more important than knowledge for all that we know is just an imagination. The language and the medium of this communication are also products of imagination. Reality as it seems can be termed as implementation of imagination. It is not mind over matter, it is only mind that matters. The theory of everthing is that there is absolutely nothing, God is absolute state of mind, soul that is everything and nothing, we are relative states of mind, bodies that are something in between. Happiness and sorrow are relative states of mind, absolute state of mind is peaceful.Truth is simple, accepting it is not. Be in Love to Rest in Peace.

Do you feel that you have a duty, because of your faith, to put your beliefs into action? What are some of those actions? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator I am here on a mission to converge science, philosophy, religion in understaning the true meaning of our existence. Once we have realized who we are, we should work towards the greater good of all beings, not just humans, on this planet. We should attain peace among all human beings on this planet with a sphere of love and extend it to all other beings. We should stop violence towards other innocent species on this planet, which we are commiting for food and medicine, I endorse PETA http://www.peta.org. I want all the brilliant minds in the world to realize the truth and start focusing on the real issues of ignorance (greed, poverty, hatred....) and violence on this planet. We have been gazing at the stars long enough, we have been breaking up the atoms long enough, we have been tinkering with the genes long enough and ignored the truth of love and peace. Partial knowledge is more dangerous, we should use caution before we act on what we know. Let us not do things for immediate benifits but let us be conscious of the consequences such actions may have on the future generations. Let us all preserve what we are given, for we might loose it all one day. If we do not change the course of our actions on this planet, please be assured that we, humans, will soon be extinct.
Are religious beliefs compromised by engaging in politics? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Religion should bolster politics and make the leaders strong in doing what is right for the greater good of the world.
