The entire United States is very excited about the celestial event that is expected to happen on Monday, August 21, 2017. The total Solar eclipse will begin visible in the West coast of the United States in Salem, Oregon at around 09:05 a.m. and the Sun will be completely obscured at around 10:18 a.m. In the East Coast, the Solar eclipse will begin visible in Charleston, South Carolina at around 1:16 p.m. and the Sun will be completely obscured at around 2:47 p.m. Americans are getting ready with their telescope and Sun glasses to see this celestial event that comes once in 100 years across the entire nation. NASA is arranging their jets to fly across the nation to follow the eclipse. In the American territory Guam, without realizing the eminent danger that could possibly land from Pyongyang, people are enjoying the Sun in their beaches as advised by the Governor. After all, this kind of political crisis threatening the lives of many happens once in a century because of irresponsible rhetoric made by a handful of world leaders. Sometimes words uttered are more powerful than nuclear weapons. The standoff at the India-China border at Sikkim is another major disaster waiting to happen unless some better sense prevails among the leaders of these two nations. When the world leaders try to solve the problems through diplomatic means, they are criticized for lack of courage and when they confront, they are criticized for being irresponsible. In the meantime, the ISIS issue is sidelined leaving some space for them to recoup and rebuild their strengths. Sometimes, one wonders whether it is worthwhile examining the minds of these politicians with a microscope and administer some medicine to eliminate the virus or bacteria or volatile substance residing inside their head. Every neuron in their head requires a detailed examination. Without further digressing from the topic, let me get back to what I meant to say. When the moon comes in between the sun and the earth, we call that solar eclipse and when the earth comes in between the sun and the moon, we call it lunar eclipse. If moon is orbiting the earth and the sun and the earth is orbiting the sun, these crossings are bound to happen occasionally. While we consider this as celestial event to be watched, let us look at the regular celestial event that happens in our lives. The word “Mathi” in Tamil has two meanings one is our mind and another is the moon. In fact, if we ask an astrologer, he would say moon is the influencing planet with respect to how our mind works. Even though our body consist of all five elements such as earth, air, water, fire and ether, predominant part reflects our beautiful planet. Let us assume our body as earth and mind as moon. In the night, the moon gives the impression that it has a natural bright white light but as a matter of fact, it only reflects the light received from the sun. Similarly, in our real life, when we face darkness, even though the mind gives the impression it could enlighten us on its own, its light is coming from the consciousness. By the mind revolving around the body, gives an impression to the body that it is a star but unfortunately, it is not. Both body and mind are depending on the consciousness to get their energy. Consciousness being a true star is effulgent and doesn’t source energy from anything but itself but shares its energy with the body and mind. The mind can come between the consciousness and the body but can’t prevent the natural light of the consciousness for a long time. Similarly, the body can come between the consciousness and the mind but can’t prevent the mind from getting light from the consciousness for a long time. We need to understand such celestial events that happen regularly in our lifetime are transient like solar and lunar eclipses. Let us receive the light with a good understanding that the source of such light is coming from our consciousness. The shadows of this body or mind is not going to affect the light coming from our consciousness. We need to realize that body and mind after all are separated from consciousness and cooled down by their actions/inactions over a period like planets separating from the sun. If the body and mind realizes that they were part of the sun once before, their existence become redundant. Let us use a microscope to find what changed us to who we are and use a telescope to become what we need to.
