2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 320 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Being Theist


Theism is not merely approving the existence of divinity or having standpoint in contrast to the profanes, but having an unconditional and unbreakable faith on divinity in your heart. This is what I have for deity and this is what my theism has been moulded over the years. I have felt this on many occasions of my life that whenever I tried to solve difficult challenges by trying to take the bulls by horns, I suffered a lot of humiliations not to mention that the problems remained unsolved.

Well, it’s not something to follow the mainstream adage “success is all about trying harder” but it seemed like flogging a dead horse and getting nothing except embarrassment and humiliations. While it is understandable that success demands a sort of indulgence to the things relatable to the fruitful attainment of the dream success, but there are many instances in our life wherein we fail to overcome them even though we assumed we tried our best.

Why theism matters?

While others differ on this, but me, as being a theist by heart, tend to observe it from a purely religious outlook, that theism matters in all walks of life. It makes you feel confident to deal with issues you thought insurmountable beforehand. It allows you recognize the real picture of a scene that you’ve otherwise thought wrongly and therefore felt despondent or lost.

I gather, most of our problems that we face in our life do not mean to be so harsh as we are so blindfolded to their intrinsic reality. The moment we cleanse off all the doubts, we have this clear conscience allowing us to see the world from a fresh perspective, something like a new-born guiding principle. Our problems remain an unsolved misery of our life until we have this confidence that someone more powerful than the problems will grant us the might necessary to win over them, not immediately but gradually, and definitely. Theism is attainable through unconditional and selfless faith on divinity.

The most notable feature of theism that I have experienced in my life is to have a totally stress-less life. Yes there are problems or in fact I have faced a lot of challenging situations in my life wherein I had to sleep empty stomach sometimes. However, somewhere in my heart, there was a corner nurturing the theism regardless of the seemingly non-subduable (unconquerable) problems outside my world.

Take for example, there are still countless unsolved mysteries in the universe that make scientists, aeronautics, cosmologist, astronomers, doctors and other science-lettered individuals fumble for words to explain their existence. I do not mean to demean their incredibly wonderful knowledge about space and extraterrestrial insights, but when you can’t explain existence of something legitimately, people may start to assume their veracity and tend to relate it to those beliefs agreeable to their own standard of judgement

Theism, in my point of view, is a totally non-judgemental outlook over the divinity even though the subject is divisive, unfortunately. I believe reality of something is not its reality; it is our own judgmentality that decides its veracity. Otherwise, there are many things in the world on which opinions sharply conflict from one individual to another. So long something doesn’t contradict to our discretion, it remains truth, and if it does, we disapprove its existence. This is why we are so obfuscated or have conflicting opinions about divinity from people to people.

The concept of theism is derivative of your faith on divinity. Hence, this viewpoint of mine is agreeable to those having such a faith. Moreover, my belief is so simple. Since I believe, I gather, I have the results as mentioned. The power of theism is that nobody can have something that is rightfully yours. Sooner or later, it will bounce back to you.
