Memories


I marvel at people who just take things for granted. Because what you really take completely for granted is the most fragile. Yes, LIFE!

Is there any guarantee that we will even wake up in the morning? Every day, we hear of sudden health issues, some discovered too late even because, before manifesting, they were festering within.

One would imagine that after witnessing one or two such cases, people would become more sensitive to those around them and aware of the fact that they can be lost to them anytime.

And yet, this awareness is very slow to come in, if at all. It is very essential to spend as much time with each other and build up strong and loving memories to last and transfer to each succeeding generation. We survive only on good memories, and we have to create them ourselves.

Once in a while, you come across people who give you the respect of being honest with you. You end up building a solid, enduring relationship with honest people because they generally come with a brand of sincerity as well.

Yes, I say “respect” because people who try and play mind games don’t realize that no one is being fooled. And respect is not being shown for the intelligence people have.

Having seen integrity, sincerity, respect and loyalty to a cause at close quarters, you want to choose to be with such people. They may appear to be disappearing minorities around you but they are valuable in that they come with a high vibration tag and teach you to tune in to these vibrations the true “satsang” of vibrations.

My guru asked me whether, while meditating, time is slow to pass or passes quickly without my noticing it. And I realized that this is the measure of how successful your first level of meditation is. Some people struggle to sit for those few minutes and some lose track of time.

The latter happens when you actually start enjoying the meditation, when you become peaceful, not necessarily because all thoughts stop but because you learn to observe your thoughts dispassionately. And don’t allow them to affect your inner calm and peace.

People misunderstand the concept of meditation and think it is going to be a drastic and permanent shift. But it won’t be though you CAN increase your hours of meditation gradually to times when you are working, eating, even conversing, by keeping your inner core unaffected and steady with calmness.

Sometimes, the shocks life gives you leave you numb and speechless. But it is silly to react so emotionally. People can be callous and cruel. Are you going to give them more power, more energy by hurting? That would be foolish.

Wisdom lies in choosing when to take anyone seriously. Hopefully, never to take anyone seriously like they say, take it with a pinch of salt. Though why they give salt so much importance, I don’t know may be, because salt retains water in the body and similarly, egos bloat people.

So, take a chill pill and move in life like a free spirit. No encumbrances, especially when it comes to undeserving people around you. Not worth killing yourselves with numbness or shock.

Like my guru said, be a witness. No one belongs to you and you don’t belong to anyone. Nature is unfathomable. It is said that a baby scorpion kills its mother after its birth. Is it a surprise then to see what humans can do?

Education comes with its own brand of confidence often, a little arrogance too. However, every educated person is not enlightened. Enlightenment goes beyond. Its canvas is very large In fact, without any boundaries Limitless.

There is an inner light in the enlightened that goes to the depth of understanding phenomena and concepts as also a natural recourse to the best code of conduct there could be . This is also work in progress while we are alive. That is, if we keep watching ourselves and our process of learning each second.

Yes, education may be different from learning. One is theory and the other practical.

A benevolent thought and acted upon with a positive intention does not fail. Somehow, people do not realize that performing such an act for someone comes back to you in strange ways. It is because the Universe is like an echo. The same quality that you give out is returned to you.

That is why, it is said, the more you give, the more you get and not necessarily from the same place. Just the bonus that you receive is indication enough about the quality of your own deed.

So, never shy away from being generous and never use others for your own ends. Rather, give generously and be satisfied that you have been placed in a position to give.

When people make statements like, you are older and that’s why you are mature, I really do not agree. There are some very old souls who can stun you with their wisdom at a very young age. They may be born to immature parents. Anything is possible.

Maturity is a very comprehensive word which is not to be looked at in a very limited way. Actually, it occupies a very vast space. It encompasses right thinking, inclusiveness, kindness, understanding , compassion, tolerance, diplomacy , love and respect for human beings and above all, always connecting to your higher self when dealing with everyone.

I think mature people would be like this. So, when anyone is called “mature”, it is not necessarily age related. It is a special grace which either is god given or comes with a lot of work on the self.

Living your life with sound principles! Our generation is extremely fortunate that we were imparted these from a very young age. It has given us a strong core and the strength to bear the consequences brought before us. The common parlance is” paying the price” for what happens to us. But the angle of perspective may be looked into. We don’t really pay any price as such. That is only a feeling expressed in this terminology because paying a price really means you are doing something you don’t really want to a trade off.

There is no trade off when we live by principles. They light up our path and we walk on that path. Whatever comes our way, we overcome it because our training has depth. Not that there is no hurt, but that the way to remove this hurt has been taught to us. The core is strong.

In the earlier years, we were taught to touch the feet of all elders. The blessing of elders was of prime importance. We were told that a blessing was a form of energy that was transmitted from the elders to us when we touched their toes. And this energy was packaged with love and affection and the good will that emanates from close bonds.

It is a blessing to belong to a family where such thoughts are given importance and such feelings exist.

Blessings go a long way. They cleanse the one who gives and the one who receives. So, in every situation, just bless, bless and keep blessing, without worrying unduly about the motives and feelings of others. It is really not relevant to us since we only bless and let go.

If we knew just how many personalities we carry within us, we would become mature about containing ourselves within a set of workable value system, workable in this life. It would not be correct to just lead a life which is not inclusive and which is completely stubborn about taking cognizance of the surrounding scenario and people especially if different parts of you are going to be in conflict.

This would happen when there are past life issues between souls , too. And even if this is just a guess, it is a liberating thought which helps in consolidating your emotions into a positive mode and helps you to move on.

And it would be good to remember that complexities are rooted in simplicity and the onus is only on you to break things down to simple thinking and living. Just with an understanding of the true nature of the self.
