Believe


Alternate healing will be mainstreamed very soon. Those who don’t “believe” in it are the ones who haven’t even tried it. Strange ! Doctors are turning towards such techniques. Remarkable recoveries have been seen.

My personal experience too. Having been advised surgery for the boils on my upper eyelids, I cured them through a special paste application every night. There are numerous such examples. According to doctors, I should not be walking straight. But I am managing to even shake a leg regularly. We are so brainwashed by allopathy. A doctor means only one who practices allopathy.

Kitchen herbs, vegetables and fruit, pranayama, yoga, juices etc have cured many , many. According to many observations, Allopathy suppresses more, cures less. Other methods pull out the ailments from their root. However, to each her own or his own.

No man is an island and everyone needs someone. In good times and bad times, a good support system makes life easier and more soul friendly. You don’t need many around you. But one should be like three; that caring that desirous of being there for you, as you must be for them as well.

Innocent and sincere friendships are heartwarming. When you see an evidence, your smile also is genuine and your heart happy.

When I hear people say, “but I care so much ” in words more than action, this spells a lack of spontaneity , maybe a kind of getting stuck in a comfort zone and not willing to walk the extra miles. Whatever else the reason!

A support group of friends and family is a total necessity at any time.

Very casually, we ask God for Wisdom, as if it is there for the asking. Maybe, it IS, but not without human effort. What is a prerequisite to wisdom is discernment, or, shall we say, they kind of go together and one adorns the other.

To be discerning is to be measured, to be aware of how much if head and how much of heart, how much of senses, how much of emotion would make the right recipe for any particular occasion. And when this gut feeling is finally right, then the result may be right for all concerned and that would be wisdom.

We humans are frivolous many a time, impulsive, too. Doing things without enough thought and introspection, often lands us in deep and muddy waters. So, refrain!

Actually, harmony has a way of feeling like a flowing river inside us. In every experience, if we can keep our core unshaken, a “samabhaava”, that is pure wisdom.

All our lives, we are told we must be balanced, balanced and more balanced. While we were kids on the see saw, the fun was exactly the opposite that is one side being up and the other side swinging up in seconds. Then we had the swing on which soaring higher and higher, one hardly knew what balance meant.

We read and preach a lot of theory. But actually, where is the balance? You love like crazy, like there is no tomorrow. You hate, waiting for tomorrow to avenge some deed or another. You eat the food you like until your tummy groans. You see serials like one addicted, forgetting day and night. You are constantly on whatsapp, face book and calls for hours. If you are a golfer, you never heard of the word “balance”.

Today, I am a spoilt child of my parents. Tomorrow, I will want to do exactly what I feel like. Later, I will want much name, fame and money. And so on…. so much for balance! What is that saying that says…

Love as if you never loved before

Laugh as if you will never laugh again

Cry your heart out when it is in pain

Enjoy with every cell in your body….

So much for balance right!

I always think that balance means certain contentment, a satiation level. And this can spell a saturation for which you have to really be ready and would have to have arrived at that point.

How many of us have?

Many of us either don’t learn from our mistakes or don’t really care; Just blundering through life with a lack of awareness. Like a child that refuses to learn. I wonder what makes some of us like that.

They say new souks are somewhat like this because they lack memories of the experience of old souls. Makes sense to me. A new soul would be childlike for sure; adventurous, loving, aggressive and rising with every fall; until life happens and reactions to good and bad memories take over thoughts and action.

We don’t even realize how much creatures of our past we are. How predictable our actions could be for someone who has seen us evolve.

If you see people with lower back aches, they are storing memories which need to heal. They would be older souls because they have so much to store.

The task of cleansing these memories forms a large part of the reasons of our many births.

We are free spirits but once limited to the bodies given to us, we limit ourselves in major ways. But the body is a vehicle to have a fulfilling life as well. The irony, the apparent contradiction does not sit well on many. It is like sitting in a car and driving instead of walking on your legs. It is an apparent convenience but there is a need for judiciousness and discretion apart from skill and of course, energy petrol.

Going through life needs all of the above. And when these don’t work, the body itself becomes an impediment and the sense of freedom is gone.

This is the whole point of balancing the body, mind and soul.

Sometimes, when you think deeply about the theory of karma, it seems to clash with the theory that the universe is turning in its own way and by its own rules. And everything is like pieces in a kaleidoscope. Each time you move it, the pieces form a brilliant new design, very attractive and beautiful to look at. Some look at the shapes, some at the colors but the whole design is very pleasing.

Life is just like that but for many, it becomes dull, colorless, boring, depressing etc. There is no doubt that if life moves like that, then we are the ones who don’t see the colors. Our vision is defective. We may call it a karmic defect, for past memories cloud the capacity for clear vision.

But who sees or does not see? NOT the body. Not the soul. It is our thoughts, emotions and ego. We are “chidananda roop, shivoham Shivoham.”

So, if there is no thought, there is no emotion and no desire, therefore no ego. That’s when the kaleidoscope makes absolute sense.
