One should really learn to appreciate the souls around us. In times of crisis, help comes through unexpected quarters and through close bonds. God loves energy being channeled. It is so amazing to feel that. And when problems come, solutions are found and things are sorted.

It is awareness, openness to the Divine energy that works. And you attract good people in your life. Yes, karmic blocks are inevitable. Some curses do work but can be transcended through triggering the Divine will and illumination.

When you go through something major in life, like a trauma, a sudden episode where the presence of God really hits you, there occurs a major change in your life, in your priorities. What used to matter so much seems trivial, even laughable? The first thing that hits you is, what was the point of giving less importance to yourself, your health and more to external factors  and more important, the unimportant factors.

Most of us make this mistake. Yes, I do call it a mistake because often, you lose awareness of your own body, mind and soul in catering to outside circumstances and people. Definitely not worth it in the long run, is it? You need people when you are unwell and there is no guarantee they will be there. Instead, just be well. Look after yourself first. Wear your oxygen mask first. And then, use the milk of human kindness to help others.

Someone asked a question the other day. If you are close to two people and they fall out with each other over an issue, whose side would you take? A loaded question for sure. A tough one, too ideally, everyone would like to maintain both relationships. And why not, since you were never the involved party. Why do you have to be torn between the two anyway, right?

But there it is. Sometimes, there WILL be a tug of war and then? If you gave the courage, you should be on the side of what is right, and not the person involved.

But, right might be what appears to each person as a different perspective. When both people think they are right, what happens then? We invariably become fence sitters in the name of tact and diplomacy. The thought being,” I don’t want to spoil my relationships. Let them work

It’s out. It may not always be that simple when people are expecting you to take sides.

In life, there will be cases such as these or some others, where people may go away from you. And prefer to stay away for no fault of yours. It is okay. It doesn’t matter. It is not your business to worry about the why’s and how’s. A clear conscience is the only yardstick we should use. And after that, let people stay if they will and let go if they won’t. There will always be a soul connection.

The capacity and the ability to understand depends on the calmness of mind which we possess or should possess. To think, to analyze, we need to keep a very peaceful mind. More often than not sometimes, the anger which sits ever ready on the tips of our noses activates immediately and puts an end to anything we might have been able to understand under normal circumstances.

But having said that when people live in a toxic environment from day to day with toxic people sanity can become a “has been”. And calmness a distant dream. But people live like that. And if it doesn’t kill them, it should make them stronger. As they say in Hindi, and I am translating here, that when pain transcends beyond a point, it actually becomes like medication. And at this point, calm should descend so that the ability to analyze should return.

If only….

Someone said the other day, and many others say it too, that there should always be a balance of heart and head. Using only the heart doesn’t work and neither does using only the brain. The former results in much pain and being taken for granted and the latter might make you hard and calculating.

But, to complicate matters a bit, there are changing proportions on a daily basis. How much of each would make for a working balance. And therein lies the catch.

The heart is automatically made synonymous with goodness. And the brain with logic, intelligence often moving down the grid to being calculative, many perspectives and several ways of looking at this.

However, the underlying truth is that both must be used.

It is the nature of humans to oscillate between happiness and stress. We speak of increasing hours of happiness through external sources and resources when actually, isn’t it really a state of mind? Ah! The MIND! The monkey that jumps from tree to tree! With a super speed unmatched by anything else in the human being, to steady it is a challenge.

But the question is how to make happiness a state of mind? We try to keep away from people and situations that affect us adversely in order to get happiness. Which means, we ARE affected and are in denial? Pushing away issues under the carpet may give us a superficial impression of happiness but there are definitely unhealed issues festering within.

As we know, many of us kill the child within us at some point. Believe me, if you don’t carry the forgetting and loving innocence of that child as an adult, all you will do is live your life cloaking your real emotions, hiding hurt from the world and blaming something or someone most times and also trying to become successful so that THAT becomes your benchmark for happiness. Hmmm! Let’s not forget that THAT is an external benchmark designed to ARRIVE at happiness. Whereas, happiness is not something to be arrived at.

Actually, without the shining light of simplicity, innocence and forgiving, can there be real happiness? I have yet to see it.

The problem with us humans is that we have become so pretentious and insincere that we fail to recognize sincerity or genuineness when we see it.

Some memories of old relationships exist in all our hearts, I am sure. And if they are valuable, we tend to go back in time to connect with the same people. Only to find that, in some cases, there is either a lot of rancor or they have moved on.

Those that have really moved on will be civil or even friendly. But those that have kept grouses for years will be sometimes offensive and sometimes, avoid you.

In the larger perspective, any soul that has a meaning or has had a meaning in your life is definitely a part of your soul group that promised to be a part of your life. What fails is our inability to see that people might be distanced but the love remains, often in the form of anger or hate because what they wanted did not happen.

That is the truth of life. Destiny plays a large role and people get separated because of many reasons, mainly past lives and past karma. But in our anger, we don’t see the larger canvas. If we did, we would reinstate people in our lives more consciously and willingly.
