Today, I wonder what Steve Jobs will be in his next avatar.
I say that because like all Hindus I believe in reincarnation. The body dies but the soul lives on and finds a new body. There is also something called as an elevated consciousness within a person who has been very driven and passionate about something all his life, Such a person when breathing his last moments is still aware of that force which drives him. A person such as this ,will carry the imprint of that force on every single cell in his body so much so that he will be capable of choosing what he wants to be in his next birth. So elevated souls who have accumulated good karma in this life by their deeds and who have become one with their souls and understand SELF either by means of higher intellect or hard work are people who are empowered by awareness when they breathe their last .
Steve Jobs was a ,"yogi" not in the conventional sense but if yoga stands for mental, physical and spiritual discipline than he certainly was someone who despite all odds lived his life by all these standards. So I consider him a true Yogi. He was working hard, not for money but because there was this futuristic vision which was driving him to come up with magical inventions even before people thought they would need something like that. He was a dynamic visionary & a wonderful human being.
Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he was a Buddhist
God creates very few men like him and takes them away for a reason.
