"Life teaches every moment with and without a thought"
Article: "Life is the master”
By Dr. Vijai S Shankar
A seeker searches for a master to point wisdom to him. A seeker searches for a master to guide him towards enlightenment. A seeker and everyone know that life teaches lessons. Life teaches man knowledge and wisdom as well. Life teaches knowledge about life to man through experiences. Life teaches knowledge about what life should be and what life should not be. This implies that life teaches wisdom to man as to what life is through experiences as well.

Comments: Article ‘Life is the master’
Julian Capper, UK.
The knowledge available to man through the intelligence of life is precisely what he or she is meant to receive. This differentiates man from the rest of nature in the potential to evolve beyond the limitations of knowledge to the realisation of wisdom. Thus, the need for his or her existence is served by the presence of a wise man or wise woman on the journey in life. In illusion, life may be long or short or neither. In reality, life is endless and beginningless. In illusion, life’s apparent end may be accompanied by sorrow, its apparent beginning by joy. The wise share the wisdom of life with the living in every moment of their daily life, come what may and understand that life is the master that teaches wisdom to the wise. Freedom from limitation is the potential gifted by wisdom.

In his search for peace, love and happiness, man goes many ways. All spring from his longing to be happy in everyday life. When man begins to look deeper, he is driven by his longing to look behind the scenes of everyday life, because everyday life does not bring him lasting satisfaction with its ups and downs. The backdrops of everyday life are seen through in that the human being sees through his mind that it is illusory and not reality. In order for this to happen, no master is necessary, for man always has his everyday thoughts directly with him. The understanding therefore will happen, if it is meant to happen, whether a human master is present or not, because life is the master. That is the wisdom that true Masters share, as here in this article.
Correction: February Newsletter
The book ‘The Illusions of life’ is translated by Andreas Schleibinger and not by Marcus Stegmaier as reported
Thank you for the wonderful February newsletter this morning. I am so grateful for your article ‘MOON’. It makes me so happy to realize how precisely this article has come to answer my deepest queries which I could not express myself. Thank you for your patience. Namaste.

Beautiful article ‘Be’. So many ignorance about ‘here and now’. Enjoyed both English and German articles and quotes!!
Your first book THE ILLUSIONS OF LIFE (excellent translated into german language by Andreas Schleibinger) came into my hands again. After all these years it's easy to reread it and fly over the pages. Nevertheless I am stunned that the (same?) words look fresh, new and utmost clear now. I pondered a lot why repeated reading is required for wisdom to be read. You've already explained that reading is an evolutionary process of intellect and it evolves as either knowledge or as wisdom. Understanding is an inherent feature of intellect and repeated reading seems to be necessary until the meaning of words may reveal wisdom. Since a word and its meaning is an auditory illusion of sound, reading must be illusory too. Nevertheless understanding is linked with reading or listening, but we cannot 'do' anything about it. It is a gift from existence. This remains a mystery for me and leaves me amazed and grateful, admiring the generosity and intelligence in life. With love and best wishes.
Answer by Dr. Shankar
Wisdom that is revealed by reading depends on how much the intellect has evolved.
Thank you dear Dr. Shankar, It is clarified now! And thank you for the last articles, enjoyed reading them. The article 'I DO' reminds me that I am a human being and not a human doing. Namaste
It has been quite a roller coaster for me to follow the latest articles. In the article ´IT IS´ it is deeply understood that daily life cannot be other than what it is in any moment, but it requires strength and trust, as Julian Capper expresses in the editor´s note, to accept daily life as it is, to enjoy the freedom of accepting what it is in every moment that he is or she is alive. With love and gratitude,
You can ask your questions to Dr. Vijai S. Shankar about what he has written, because it will help you!
