At some stage, you realize that life is to be lived like a game. That’s why they say, sports builds up character. This now winning no, now losing syndrome has to bring in the ability to take both in your stride. Isn’t it?

And that’s what we go through in life, now being successful and now, not much. As a young girl, I asked Mr. Vijay Merchant to write in my autograph book. And he wrote:

“It is not about how you win or lose

It is how you play the game”.

And this always stayed in my mind. Truly, it is how each one of us chooses to conduct our lives that are the single most important thing. There may have been several pitfalls looking back, but you also see how you handled those and how much you learnt along the way and how far you have come. And nothing is a waste of time. Life is the largest educational Institution. You can give exams as many times as you want but hopefully, each time, the preparation will be better and better.

Divine spirit


Every night, you acknowledge that the Divine spirit guides and protects your life. You also say a prayer in gratitude, for health, safety, love and support given by the universe. When things go right, we forget that they need not have time for gratitude.

Many a time, we have a close shave, a near mishap on the road. But we are safe time for gratitude.

So many similar situations have come into our lives as potential dangers, but, only potential time for gratitude.

The true measure of a person is dependability. You may not meet for months but the one you think of first in a crisis is a friend indeed or family. How close such people have to be to you!

Can you go beyond the SMS and the whatsapp to reach out? If someone texted asking if you needed help, your instinct would always is to refuse because if you really want to help, you would not be asking.

One has to be very honest and lip service is not honesty. At the end of the day, an offer is just that an offer. Standing at someone’s doorstep unasked, unannounced, to be of help is actual help.

An angle we need to work on.

If we dwelt on the possibility that anything can happen in a second, how many of us would sleep ? That everything we build in our heads and around us in our physical reality could just be a lot of sand castles.

Does anyone know what reality is ? Is what we imagine, real or is what we see an illusion ? See the kids on the trampoline ? The excitement is how high you can go . But each time, you can’t go higher if you don’t take off from the ground . It is a normal principle of gravity . The law of life is similar. It says, keep your feet on the ground if you don’t want to be swept away like a sand castle. Take off but come back. Like everything has to.

There are wonderful people all over the world. You meet them at various points in your life and they become a source of joy. You don’t look for wealth in people. It is the love and caring that even money cannot buy, that makes life beautiful. Imagine how much beauty you miss if you only connect with people when you need them for your benefit.

Upbringing, grace, natural inner beauty are the shining ingredients in humans. Living for yourself is nothing great. When your being responds to those you love, you actually justify your birth as a human being. Because human beings are the highest intelligence on earth. And also have been gifted with a heart.

Personal behaviour


The thing about personal behaviour is that though you may get several accolades or critics by your side, ultimately, you are your own judge. Your motives are your own , and not always fathomed by the onlookers. So, it is probably better to be in a state of equilibrium on the outside and introspective within. No one is going to give you medals or punish you .

Generally, our conscience does all of this. Because we can’t hide from ourselves, right ? The buck , therefore, stops right here, with us. It cannot be passed on. And hence, the periodic need for introspection.

Grief sometimes has a very deep impact. Often, very deep disappointments with very close people can also become a source of grief. What you least expect from a person can hit you hard. So, try not to let the feeling run too deep or it will affect your health.

As I was discussing with someone, as per our tradition, duty and responsibility has been given a higher role than even love. There is a very good reason for this. While doing your duty, you do what you are supposed to do. What is right by you? You don’t look at what the others are doing. So, by not being reactive, it is easy to know your “dharma” and fulfill it. No emotion. Health remains intact. It is a win situation for you. You are actually working from your higher self Great way to be.
