Who are we with all the potentiality ?

What We are in Actuality ? 

How do we transform our potentiality into Actuality ?

Question One:

Who are we with all our potentiality?

We are in the image of Godliness with all perfection and have become imperfect on account of our own doings based on the principle of self accountability ‘ self is the cause and self is the effect . Yes heredity and environment have largely influenced usin picking up those habits that disallows us to reflect positivity in the profile of Godliness.Know more about we being through my poem KNOW THYSELF                           

KNOW THYSELF

Know thyself your form is rare

That even gods cannot dare

Thou art lord, internalize

Know it so and then realize

This life rich in resource

Plenty and full of force

All attainable for thee divine

Thou art lord all is thine

Why do you delude all at pleasure

All is Atman and at your leisure

Thou art master, not the slave

Be wise and not the knave

Thou art lord command the mind

Control the senses not to bind

Self is the friend and self is the foe

All a matter of discriminatin or else woe

Think, judge and act right

know, feel and do right

Listen to your soul it murmurs

As and when wrong occurs

Search the soul for self correction

It whispers at self dereliction

Energise to feel divine

know thyself all is thine
