Energy flow


People you love pass away from this world as all of us must when the time comes. When people tell you to keep the GOOD memories, I know what they mean. The more hurtful memories we store, the more we harm ourselves. That is not wise. 

Besides, everyone does have a good side, even if you have amplified the dark side in your mind. So, if there are no positive memories you have with a particular person; let even the negative memories go…the past does not return unless you give it space in your mind.

Let the energy flow and never allow yourself to be dragged into any situation unless you have transcended your earlier colored perceptions. 

People change. Situations change. But we hold on to meaningless but harmful memories.

Journey


At some point, when you have been running and running for a really long time, you have to stop and ask, “Why am I running? Has it gotten me anywhere that I really want to be?

Whether you run after things or people or your hopes or dreams, the levels of exhaustion are directly proportionate to the levels of satisfaction and success. And even then, in time this wears off too….everything has a saturation point after which it becomes kind of redundant…stops mattering in the larger scheme of things.

And if it doesn’t, then maybe there is a longer journey ahead or a different journey ahead…one thing is sure. We will continue to search even after all the worldly gains have been achieved, because there is the matter of the spirit which is still pending.

Generation


Every generation wishes it was born in the next generation. There are more doors of opportunity, more evolution every few years…

The minus here is that the earlier generation does not necessarily have the ability to adapt to changes, especially in the academic field. Of course, knowledge brings in many more changes, e.g., in sophistication, behavioral patterns and many personality aspects.

Today, when I see the elders keeping pace with trends, technology and the overall pace of life, I feel a deep sense of respect for them. At least, they try. The youth of today does not probably realize how challenging it has been for their parents’ generation to survive within the rapid growth of societies, waiting to be loved and wanted by their children who have moved into a bubble of contemporary life, with not enough compassion for the elders , many of who have not been as privileged.

It is inevitable that in our journey, some stay with us all along and some fulfill the reason they were in your life and move away. It is absolutely ordained and within the plan of our life.

Forming attachments along the way makes this learning difficult. Much grief, sorrow and unacceptability comes our way, leading to an arrest in the growth process. We were not meant to gather so much negativity. But learning such lessons with wisdom would make our tough karma easier to handle, though inevitable to experience.

Like a child that fails in exams when it has not learnt the right lessons, life is one such exam where learning does not come only from mugging but observing, introspecting, experiencing, making wise decisions and choices and then arriving at the right path.

State of chakras


Coincidences! Are there any? I don’t believe there are. From a line you read, to a book you select from a shelf to people you meet, the food you attract, and the clothes you wear…our external world mirrors our inner world.

Some days, for example, we may choose some colors to wear and other days, other colors. There is a reason. Colors reflect the state of our chakras and define our moods. Food preferences define us.


Of course, as we change our preferences, so we demonstrate the way we are transforming. Like, when a non veg turns a veg, there is surely a change within. Similarly, if you start observing yourself in these ways, you will know yourself much better and succeed in making the changes you feel you should be making for yourself. This expedites our evolution.

The ingenuity of the human mind can conjure up “genuine” reasons and justifications for actions and behavior. We are masters at the game of illusions which are a product of our creativity.

But there is only one reality. Sooner or later, we will arrive at that. Rather, we will HAVE to arrive at that. Like a derailed train or delayed train that might reach its destination late…how late would depend on how soon the obstacles can be cleared. Life is pretty much like that. The difference is, in our case, only we can clear those blocks and obstacles. We can go round and round but ultimately, we have to find our path to reality. If we won’t exercise the right choices, we will be led to the right choice….

Taking off from the saying, “Evil is educational”, it seems so much easier to understand when you view this from the point of view of individual ego inspiring the evil and collective ego , the sum total of many egos inspiring negativity amounting to collective evil. Like terrorism which stems from a radical belief system honed by dark perceptions and leading to a collective evil, all within the darkness of negative perceptions.

 How much cleaning one has to do of the self then is a matter of every person’s agenda for only then will our societies purify and our future generations become secure, prosperous, progressive and peaceful.

Hatred is evil. Separatism is evil. And until such memories are transformed, we will continue to attract evil because we have transcended darkness.
