Between you and us

Dear Reader,
This is the age of convergence. We live in an age where the traditional boundaries between disciplines, technologies and sectors are being erased. The Internet is one great example of this convergence. Though the effects of convergence are visible mainly in the way people communicate and share information, we at Heart2Heart believe that this is only a nascent effect of a much larger and divine force at work. This force is slowly, but surely, erasing all the artificial barriers that man has unintentionally created in his mind. And that includes the great barriers between science, business and spirituality.

An increasing number of people, who hitherto viewed spirituality and the so called ‘affairs of the world’ as mutually exclusive are now realizing that spirituality is merely changing the attitude with which you conduct the affairs of the world! Being a businessman cannot stop you from being spiritual! Being a scientist cannot stop you from being spiritual! And being spiritual does not mean you that you cannot be a successful scientist or businessman!

This issue is a testimony to this concept of convergence. The Cover Story is on Mr. Sinclair, a successful businessman from the United States and a long time devotee of Swami. He firmly believes that the ‘Business of business and the business of life are one and the same’. There is yet another story in the Feature Articles called ‘Einstein and Baba’. Einstein, perhaps the greatest scientist humanity has ever produced, was a deeply spiritual person. Just note what he says:

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest: a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”

Great men like this are harbingers of a true and complete convergence of life with all its diversity. And True Convergence is realizing the oneness of everything in this Universe. This Unity, as Swami says, is the pathway to Divinity.

Happy reading!
