The frog that lived in the well was born in the well and that well was the world for him. He didn’t know the world outside of the well.

When asked about themselves, many people may mention this one thing they identify with, their religion. Like, I’m a Christian. I’m a Muslim, I’m a Buddhist etc. Our religion has become something we identify with. Let’s say if you tell a Christian that he isn’t really a Christian than the question that will pop up is, then ‘Who Am I’ ?. The question is, is this my correct identity? Is it true? If yes, to what extent?
This post is not about the begging that is known, this is about the begging we do subconsciously, without even realizing due to our conditioned structures(sanskaras). Take a look around, once done take a look inside of you since we are good at judging other people and turn into best lawyers when it comes to us. Observe, you’ll notice that how we are all beggars, royal beggars.
In the recent times, the branch of science that has come closer to spirituality is Quantum Physics. It has completely changed the perception of the physicists who had always believed that matter is the ultimate reality but as the research into quantum phenomena has increased and the more in-depth we have dug, physicists have understood that what we see is not the ultimate reality.
