Ultimate Goal of life




    What is the ultimate goal of life…many of us would say the path of god or godliness is the ultimate goal. Yes they are true to some extent but this is not the entirety of Ultimate goal of life…before readers conclude about the theme of the story…I must say it’s certainly not about spirituality.


    Before I move into the main theme I would like to ask few questions.

    How would you explain the term belief in god or if I ask you whether you believe in god or not? what will be your answer?

    Answer is quite simple …if you believe in god then it’s there if you don’t believe nothing can be done…it’s presence or absence is there within you…it’s often said if you go out to find god you would never find any trace of the almighty but if you search within yourself, one day you might meet feel the presence of the extreme power.

    Now what is godliness? Where can you find godliness?

    For onlookers there is no god as such but god resides in one’s goodwill which may also be referred to as godliness. Godliness or goodwill is not present in any temples, mosques or churches it’s there within us. But we seldom do identify such eternal bliss the reason being we never searched for the same. We are accustomed to find fault in others rather than finding the goodness in them as such we have all become corrupted souls, we don’t appreciate the goodness but we can promptly notice the faults…we are very good in analyzing other’s fault but when we would analyze ourselves we would realize no one is at a greater fault then we ourselves.…do you know the reason for this?

    We have never analyzed ourselves…we may feel whatever we do or think it’s the best thing which can be done but the reality may be entirely different we never see things from others perspective. We are so engrossed in our own prospective that we seldom think about anything else…What is true to you may be false for the entire world. What is right for you may be wrong for everybody else.

    Now what about those who don’t believe in god or godliness?

    To make the presence of god felt to an atheist is like preaching young cub (baby tiger) to be vegetarian.  Similarly there are agonistics who will never come up to any conclusion about the existence of god as they require proof of everything to regard them as valid. To understand and believe the presence of god is to go beyond your understanding of citing anything through evidence or validation.

    It’s something which can only be felt and not measured. You cannot measure the intensity of happiness or sadness…there’s no process or procedure to measure one’s emotion, belief or trust. Similarly godliness can never be measured. You can only preach what you feel.


    Talking about preaching…There are people who claim to be the most worldly and godly. I am not neglecting their claims neither do I ask for any verification…my point is It’s not wise to condemn everyone and consider one to be the most proficient soul. You might know, a person who is knowledgeable will never show off his knowledge similarly a purist will never claim himself to be the best soul or with immense godliness.  He will always be humble and preach himself as if he is only a micron of the entire nucleus.  He will never call himself to be the ultimate supreme.


    How would you preach ultimate supremacy?

    Sometimes power (in terms monetary values) is considered as of ultimate supremacy. One is willing to forge everything for this…but goodwill doesn’t come with one’s monetary power. Both a billionaire and a beggar exits  from earth empty handed…they are not allowed to take either their money or pride or anything else… we don’t remember them as how rich they were but we remember them for how good/bad a person was during his lifetime. No one knows what happens after life…but what counts is how a person was during his/her life time.


    It’s often said bad guys take away all the cream…and the good ones remains at mediocrity…you must be aware of the saying the path of godliness may be difficult, tiresome and time taking but one day you are bound to see sunshine at the end of the tunnel if you believe in the ultimate power…there may be delay but not darkness. Similarly the path of trickster may be short, trickster may achieve glory in short time but its proven fact, the path which is not backed by goodwill won’t be able hold its place for long and one day a trickster has to give up to godliness either peacefully or belligerently.


    Everyone wants to be successful and that too overnight, in the process they forget goodwill and take the shortcut to success and thus end up in wrong quarters which may be momentarily fruitful but in the long run can only suffice for darkness and grimness… The path to godliness is very difficult…it will be probing and it will test both with your patience and quality of bearing hardship. You may face many failures during initial phases… but if you continue your path to godliness overcoming anything and everything you would achieve the ultimate goal of life…which is not being rich…not even successful…but the ultimate goal of life i.e. Salvation.


    Now you know…the ultimate goal of life i.e. salvation doesn’t require you to become a priest or a saint.

    It’s achieved by preaching goodwill…goodwill is not just the denotation of the dictionary meaning but the connotation of being good…it’s complete deviation from greed, jealousy, rage, lust & possession. It’s achieved by preaching Love, Peace, brotherhood and humanity.


    Thus the mantra to salvation is:

    If you really want to have greed, greed for alleviating people’s trouble.

    If you really want to have jealousy, have jealousy to remove your own shortcomings.

    If you really want to have rage, have rage for Turbulence.

    If you really want to have lust, crave for people’s well being.

    If you really want to have possession, have possession for preaching godliness (i.e., Love, Peace, brotherhood and humanity)


    Salvation through Godliness is not just preaching the teachings of sacred verses or god it’s about preaching Love, Peace, brotherhood and humanity.

    Posted May 30

    Honda CRV was zooming ahead like a shooting star over the black tar road of Nation Highway No. 2 between Kanpur and Varanasi. Strapped behind the wheel, despite running AC, I was sweatening like hell, my red eyes which were deprived of three nights of sleep were fixed on the road, and I could sense my foot was making pressure on accelerator, harder and harder. The odometer was showing 122 Kmph mark. But I was oblivious with what I was doing. My mind was reminding me what she had said few nights back. 'We are terrible together.' 'I am no longer interested in this relationship.' 'I want you to leave me, and wanna destroy every single trace of you from my life.' 'I don't care whether you love me or not, but I don't love you for sure.' 'WHY?' I'd asked politely. But, a Lier remains a Lier, she made me count 50 reasons. All fragile and mostly nonsense. 'you'd promised that you will stay mine forever.' 'Promises? I never given my words.' * * After this conversation, I called some of my connections in UP Crime Branch's Cyber Cell. They track her phone and within 48 hours I had known that she was into relationship with another man. I could never tolerated it. It was a daring step as she had been told that I was not a man who gives up. If you are not mine you will be dead for not to become somebody else. When I entered Varanasi, it was 3:30 and at 4:05 I stopped SUV infront of a peach color single storey house. I parked the car next to 6ft high fence. Open the cabinet buit in dashboard, took out my italian 9mm handgun, screwed a 8inch long silencer over the barrel. Checked the magazine, it was full. Next moment, I was on the roof of CRV, then inside the boundary. A door which was to separate living area from compound was locked, I took 2 minutes in opening the lock. I crossed the corridor, now standing infront of her room, i tried to listen to make sure if she talking to someone on phone. I found silence. I opened the door and entered. She was lying on her bed. An open diary was on the bed. I reached the bed. And immedeatly I felt a pang. Her left wrist was slit open. Blood was spilling on the floor. I tried to sense her breathing. It wasn't. She was dead. SHOCKED !! I took the diary and saw opened page. "I broken Magnet's heart (i was magnet). His love was pure, I couldn't cope with it. Life will be tough for him, but atleast he'll stay alive. Previous pages told me how her old schoolmate called her at his home, for a party and gang raped her. A week ago, she was inform that she was found HIV positive. I was there to punish her because she was supposed to have betrayed me, what i found was her loyality much purer than mine. I text a message to one of my men with name and details of her friend, and in the end I wrote, "KILL THEM SLOWLY." I removed my shoes. Settled next to her on the bed. Raised and put her head on my chest ...my nose into her hair. Thats the same old smell. "I Love You." I whispered. And with a huge bang pieces of my skull and brain with white smoke were all over in her room. The Retribution I was there for was over. ©MAGNETIQUE TRUST 2014. ALL RIGHT RESERVED....
