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.

Mindfulness


Mindfulness in each present moment has the power to erase all past recordings of all lifetimes. Sounds easy? It sure can be. But we constantly remind ourselves that it is NOT easy. Why because, actually, we don’t want to let go.

Just imagine. When we are in a crowd, do we remember what happened ten years ago, while we are being jostled and pushed? Naturally not because we are busy trying to keep our balance and prevent ourselves from falling, getting injured right?

But when a crowd of memories jostle and push your mind, the tendency is to let them knock you down and injure you, isn’t it? And your whole personality can change drastically in reaction to these injuries.

But, while being mindful in the present moment, you are focused on just what is happening in that moment. And it therefore, takes that one instant to forget all else. And if you can continue practicing this, one day, you will reach a state of constant mindfulness.

Choices


How much we suppress ourselves because the people around us get used to a set image of us! It is really incredible, isn’t it? And you automatically match that image because it is “expected” of you. But YOU may not get the same from others. When you conform, you have to continue to conform, or run the risk of heavy criticism and build a steel armor for yourself for it.

I had to share this post because I do believe we shy away from growing because it means change and too many boats can get rocked. The choice may not be easy, but to grow is the purpose of the soul and why it has come here in the first place. Actually, therefore, there IS no choice.

Challenges


Every age has its challenges. As kids as teenagers as adults in various phases of growth, mental, emotional and spiritual; the one benchmark of maturity is becoming non judgmental. And this means truly so, not just superficially so as not to displease.

Actually, to be judgmental really means that we need to look at what others are mirroring in us. Why do I need to judge anyone at all? Because there are similar memories that trigger in us; if there weren’t those memories, we would not find it in our hearts to judge.

It is also a matter of feeling holier than thou feeling superior. That is a game that the ego plays. We don’t need to play into its hands. We are fine being our own selves, with our own journey and our own challenges, learning, unlearning and relearning constantly and continuously along the way.

I believe in pure intention and connectivity as being two factors that can transform anything from negative to positive. That we are connected with everything and everyone in this Universe is a fact: a conviction if you have that level of awareness to have experienced this. It is also a fact that thought is a prime energy and therefore, pure intention the thought form that raises your vibrations to a higher level to actually connect with the Divine energy that makes everything manifest. How beautiful is that!

This way, we are also connected to knowledge that lies within us but through academics and through life experiences, is just triggered in this current life and manifests into our conscious mind. Like, for example, a city you have apparently not visited before but seem familiar for no reason at all.

Our soul has lived many lives and memories of places, people, Events, reactions, responses are all stored deep within. Like you open a box to take what is within, the box of memories is waiting to be opened, scrutinized and healed wherever required. And we can all do these ourselves. It depends on the vibration levels we are able to achieve. Like a fast spinning top that does not allow any dust to settle on it.

Come to think of it, we don’t offer gratitude often enough. We are not aware enough that the burning heat of life does not touch us in extremes. Yes, there are challenges for all of us. But, many of us tend to over amplify those challenges and make a huge deal without realizing that there are worse case scenarios around us , the kind we would not be able to tolerate even , just because we have not really been burnt to experience the difference .

We have kind of escaped the areas that the mines have been laid out or have lucked out in not entering those areas. And what you don’t experience ever becomes a memory to learn from.

Somewhere along the way, each time we forgot to say “thank you” to the Universe, we lost a little bit of our energy. And each time we are filled with gratitude, we are transported to a higher plane where there is happiness and joy. They are generated from within and so, also, remain with us over a long period of time.

Of late, I have begun to question many belief systems. And one of them is the definition of loyalty. How far do we stretch to prove we are loyal ? And why do we need to prove loyalty ? Do we need to see reciprocity in loyalty ? Or is it a bit like unconditional love where you must be loyal but not look for loyalty as a return. Is this what people call owing allegiance to ?

Sometimes, when a relationship goes through stormy weather, out of pique and hurt, we cease to be loyal. We speak against people. Should we be like that ? Can we live with that ? Or is it better to just let them go and walk away ? Or, is loyalty standing still , come what may ?

Hmmm. An interesting introspection with a review of our past years . Where and when did we exercise our choice for and against loyalty and what we now need to learn.
