Simple steps to becoming a better human, even Super Human




There are many articles in this blog about life and how to improve mind, body and soul so as to become a better human. Since the collection is rather large a reader may wish for a small list that can be read quickly and followed easily. Just five earlier articles are selected here that can set any person on a quick path of evolution while increasing happiness substantially. To begin with you may wish to read what the purpose of life is in this post:

Now if this article convinces you that it is the purpose of every life to evolve into greatness let us get started. A good place to start is a simple practice called entropy yoga. You probably already know of it and follow most of it anyway. It is described here:

The next step is a practice called mindful breathing that may now be added to your routine and you shall be on your way to the stars.

While the previous articles describe how to improve health, peace and efficiency in life it also mentions that something more is required for attaining happiness. A belief in God is immensely helpful in this. If you are of modern scientific bent, you may have developed a disinterest in God as described in some religions. A modern view of the Almighty can be found in this article

An exceedingly simple practice developed around a belief in God is called Kriya Yoga as described by a modern Himalayan mystic - Baba Haidakhan. You can find out about this at the following link. The article is a bit long since it includes some biographical notes etc. but you may skip that safely and head to the central and brief description of Kriya yoga  included in that note. It is easy to understand and simple to practice.

If you like the practices described in these articles, save the link or better still make a print for filing in the order quoted here, for easy reference later. At the same time you may wish to browse through other related articles in this blog whenever you find quiet moments for that. They are based on a consistent line of logical thought and philosophy. Best wishes for your exciting journey called life that involves a few bumps in the very best of cases but you shall end up at the right destination provided you catch the right trains or planes, some as suggested in this note.

Kingdom of Piland –Protecting the Planet




Kingdom of Piland

It has been mentioned in various places in this blog that mankind needs to do more to protect our environment and forests. While different parts of the world have been under the jurisdiction of different countries of the world and the responsibility falls upon them, surprisingly there were still a couple of areas that were Terra Nullius, at least until a few weeks ago. Aside from protecting the environment,  it would also be good if different countries use the area under their control to help at least some others such as refugees fleeing their countries under severe distress or violence and much has been written about that in recent posts.

The two new countries have now been declared as two new Kingdoms, the Kingdom of North Sudan and the Kingdom of Piland. The first is a very tiny desert area and the second an icy sector of the Antarctica. It is not known if these claims would stand the test of time since they are very new. However, either they will or someone else will claim them or perhaps they shall be placed as a common heritage of mankind. Fortunately the second, the Kingdom of Piland has already done that in a way. It has declared that any citizen of the world may regard himself or herself as an adjunct citizen and live/visit this Kingdom provided they do not undertake any activity that damages the plants, animals and environment of the region, and that is the message of this new Kingdom for the entire planet too.

The primary objective in the creation of the Kingdom of Piland is to make contributions towards protection of the planet from environmental degradation. A secondary goal is to contribute towards reducing the distress of humans suffering under things like severe poverty and exploitation, especially children.  



FREEDOM OF BELIEF
 
His Majesty has strong spiritual beliefs but none that belong exclusively to any one religion or philosophical system. They arise from both the east and the west, from ancient beliefs as well as modern ones. However he believes strongly that every human has a right to his or her own belief or none at all, and that any fanaticism in such matters is detrimental to further evolution since no finite mind, not even saints and angels, may ever know fully the mysteries of the infinite.
 



The pronunciation is not like Pee Land but Pie Land  (more precisely like the Pi of mathematics)   :)
