A Best Selling Author
I was an engineer at 22, a science teacher at 25, I became a meditator by 27 and finally I evolved into an author at 28. Having learnt through a lot of subjects while preparing for the civil service exams, I came to understand more about the society we live in, the life we go through and most importantly, the dread of our existential crisis as human beings! The fast-paced lifestyles of everyone around me, made me realise we’re missing something or even, we lost track somewhere.
I realised I didn’t want an empty life chasing after the tomorrow that never comes.
I wanted my life to be more meaningful, and so, I started my search for meaning. That’s when I went spiritual and started meditating! My experience as a science teacher taught me ‘how to think’, while my meditative thoughts led me towards ‘what to think about’ and my journey towards a meaningful life began.
The more I meditated the more I realised I could strike a balance between science and spirituality. I understood that a new perspective can be brought forward. A new explanation for everything around us can be forged. I realised I should address the most important question every person faces in their lives. The ‘God’ question, of course! I hoped I would find the answer in that balance.
And sure enough, I did!
I realised that it is not the varied religions that mislead people when it comes to ‘God’. But it is people’s ignorance about the reality and their lives that’s the real culprit there.
My purpose became clear here.
I have to share with everyone, everything I’ve learnt so far. To teach people about the reality we live in and the wonders it hides within. To help them learn how to think and what to think about. To make them realise and experience their own lives. In doing so, they will find the answers they seek, they dream and yearn for.
With this new found meaning, I wrote the book, starting my life afresh, as an author.
But I must admit, I learnt a lot while writing the book than when I was thinking about writing it. It seems the more we search for something, the more we realise it’s been around us the whole time.
My search for more meaning continues as I write my next book, all the while learning more. As for now, I present you with my first creation, The Concept of ‘God’.
