“Kehte hain agar kisi cheez ko dil se chaho… Toh puri kainaat usse tumse milane ki koshish mein lag jaati hai.” A line like this sounds extremely magical and positive when the King of Bollywood cinema, Shahrukh Khan, delivers an extremely cosmic dialogue in a highly romantic movie of his: Om Shanti Om.
Toying with the famous SRK line, here are some questions. They say you can give out vibes to the Universe and it absorbs them. Then it returns the favour by giving it back to you based on you feelers. For example, could a simple wish like, “How I wish I get a paid leave today!” Perhaps, on a broader spectrum, we can understand this as karma cafe. For those of you who are not aware of this word, rather the concept karma, it means resultant position based on a person’s deeds. But anyway, limiting it to the Universe, is it possible?
My query is how can just mere thoughts act as vibrations, give out signals to the Universe? There is enough information out there on the internet of course. There are also several websites that let users address their issues by leaving messages on their pages. Messages for instance, wherein a person can ask the Universe to help/grant him/her peace, joy and happiness and the like. There are forums where experts guide people to reach their goals with the assistance of Universe.
So, what then is this Universe? Setting aside the precise dictionary meaning, let us understand that Universe is basically everything. The good, bad and the ugly. So in this everything, we exist. We are a part of it, in an insignificantly tiny way. We belong in it. Even if in a nanoscopic, limited and mortal way, we are here in it. But, do we possess the power to poke this mammoth sized Universe and wake its reciprocity? There are people who firmly believe in this process. This positive set of people opine that we all need to believe in this truth, in an undeterred way. And yes, we do get lucky when the Universe hears us and grants wishes. What would the famous Suits star, Harvey Specter say about something like this? His famous quote, “I don’t get lucky, I make my own luck.” gives us an angle of this world where people are too busy to be thinking that wishes come true by just wishing. Such practical people may call it delusional. They probably don’t believe that it can be so easy. They may think we are too minuscule for such kind of a cause and effect. Whereas, some have neither heard nor tested this theory. When asked, a friend said, “what is the harm in trying?”, while another one said, “you have to believe in it completely.” Be it yes or a no, by concluding, are we simplifying without actually paying attention as to what it could mean?
For some, it is a serious business. Practitioners believe that an individual needs to first make a wish. Let the wish settle within yourself and not just treat it like a whim. Make it a priority. Using your own centered positive energy, meditate upon it. This technique helps an individual in self-empowerment. The belief in ones own being and the existing energy increases. Human cognition is acknowledged as a greater force which can emit and attract energies. Having said so, there is no personal experience. A string of thoughts propelled into a write-up. For all we know, it could be a series of coincidences or it could actually work.
Should it be left for an SRK as a mere dialogue or start believing in it as an aftermath of Bollywood movie? Differing opinions do cause confusions. Shall we say, to each his own?
