It seems a dilemma when Krishna asks Arjuna to surrender all his actions to him and act according to dharma. On the other hand, we are taught to take ownership of our actions. Those who go into these questions find no easy formula to master. When to surrender and when to own our actions?

A constant self assessment is a way to understand the qualitative difference between these two. Even surrender is not that simple. To surrender completely is not even to plan and just let things happen. Just flow. Can we do that? Generally Impossible.

We really need to understand all the layers of our mind that we create for ourselves and then find ways to peel them off when understanding dawns. Meditation is a powerful tool to scan ourselves in a way no MRI or ECG can.

The inner voice speaks only when there is silence around it and it can be heard.

Self doubt may be a result of your not knowing your capacity, not trusting your commitment or not trusting your knowledge. If I ask someone, “can you really do this for me”, I could be concerned about that person or simply not trusting.

I learnt yet again today that it is important to trust yourself and the power of the Divine. I find that choices confront you and your self doubt may act up in either of the cases. “Can I do this with the way I am?” Maybe, thinking of health issues or thinking I may need support in which case, should I trouble people? Doubt! Doubt! Doubt!

Ultimately, you are led into a decision and if you trust the Universe, magic happens. We just need to tune in. And then everything falls into place and confidence creeps in to reign supreme. The way to go!

Have we ever thought that if we never accepted the dishonorable intentions of people, how untouched by negativity we would be! Imagine, if someone wanted to deliberately humiliate you, for example, but you just didn’t react to the intention and instead, continued to maintain your politeness and dignity, how foolish that person might end up feeling?

Try it, not once, but again and again, through life.

If only every human being had that one ingredient for life: a sense of excitement! Like, when we are sitting at the edge of our seats in a thriller movie, just waiting to see what the next scene will bring. If we could translate that into our lives and wait for the next thing to happen!

Of course, there are sad episodes one can’t possibly equate to anywhere close to exciting. There are “Navarasas” or nine types of emotions, all of which are within us. Yet, our attitudes make us. Or break us very easily said than done though.

When life happens, the best of us crumble at times. But we accept that we crumbled. And then the resurrection happens. And we look ahead again at what life brings to us next.

The Universe is buzzing around us, giving us so many opportunities, so much support, so many kindred souls to help . Yet, we are unable to move forward and create experiences at an optimum level. Our eyes scan far away horizons when everything is so close. Perhaps, that is why we can’t see it. It is too close .

The formulae for our well being are also perhaps as simple as the gifts from the universe are closer than we think or we know. We simply look in the wrong place.

Reminds me of the woman who lost her needle inside her hut but was looking for it outside in her yard only because the light was in the yard, while her hut was dark.

Similarly, we also look to raising our vibrations through external sources whereas the tools lie within us. We constantly look in the wrong place.

The importance of gratitude can never be overplayed. We just don’t have enough. We overlook so many dimensions which need gratitude. Sometimes, we don’t even thank people for the little things they do for us. We don’t think it is important to thank our parents, our children, our friends, and the people around us. Our body and organs, all the internal systems that have supported us all these years and our breath which gives us the elixir of life, our senses through which we can feel, see, touch, taste and smell the beauty of the world. Gratitude invariably leads to surrender. And all spiritual awakening happens naturally.
