Energy


More people should go into learning and practicing energy work. Even those who don’t know Reiki symbols or Panic Healing can start by becoming aware of everything within and without as energy. The moment you create the awareness, you start feeling that energy.

Today, we add the popular prefix “e” to every enterprise…like e commerce, e publishing etc. Similarly, we also have “e motion” and “e” go…e for energy in this case.

E motion is simply energy in motion. E go also implies movement.( go) These are energies in motion which we need in life but transmuted as positive energy.

Without feelings and emotions, we would be like dry, barren land. Without ego, we would not know how to balance our inner and outer worlds.

But there is a difference to be made in using emotions for peace and harmony and manifesting the connectivity and oneness aspects as opposed to excessive detrimental emotions causing conflict and war.

Speaking of ego, it accelerates the pace of lessons to be learnt in self control, balancing the male and female aspects of one and speaking universal truths without ego and with humility and understanding.

Understanding energy is extremely enlightening, informative and transformatory. I sincerely advocate an interest in this direction.

Comparison


An excerpt from Kangana Ranaut’s interview : ” I think somewhere, women don’t have acceptance for themselves. Women don’t support women, and this matter should be brought to light ( through films). Though they share a bond, I still feel that we don’t support each other the way we should. Like, at the smallest of things, we see girls make fun of girls themselves, our nature and how we look at each other as the inferior sex. So, somewhere, this needs to be deactivated.”

I was mulling over this comment and finding some truth alright. Apart from this being a cut throat world, women have been losing out due to personality issues. Sure, there are many women’s organizations and travel groups but…..

They call it a man’s world because they unite for a cause and their solidarity does often overtake that of women. They also tend to move on faster than women without focusing too much on petty issues. Traditionally, women were not insecure. In the Vedic age, women were strong and wise and lived shoulder to shoulder with the men. But later in history, they came to be called a weaker lot, dependent on the male. More so, after the moghul invasion. And today, when women are coming out of their shell, they will probably have to go through a period of transition till they start supporting each other for a greater cause of connectivity and look for a connection in each other rather than comparison.

I think I understand why people don’t share heart to heart conversations anymore. Or rarely… it is not easy to understand the pain of others for the simple reason that each one’s intensity of feeling the pain and the reasons for the pain are distinctive to each person. What won’t touch me will probably scar someone else for life. And while I could be clinical , the other person could feel suffocated with an unimaginable tide of grief.

Ultimately, life is about how much you can reconcile yourself to. How much numbness you develop before you start to get into the kind of drug induced slumber that knocks off your brain for a few hours.

Count your blessings…one, two, three……calm down! You are alone with your pain. And you have to get your own power and control back. For one, stop giving importance to that feeling which is likely to drown you. Cleanse your energy before it breaks you and brings you to a point of no return. Create space around to build up the capacity for movement. The last thing you need is to stand still within the muddied swamp of pain which no one can pull you out of but yourself.

So, share your feelings with yourself, then expel them from your system and relax with a smile and a charminar!

Medication vs. meditation! We can heal ourselves. Once you start on medication, we fail to trust our capacity to heal our self and start using medication as a crutch.

It has been proven that intention is the core energy. It can change the composition of the cells. Reiki, the energy that works on faith and acceptance, very often heals in a few minutes. But many don’t believe miracles can happen this way. But I speak with personal experience and that of several others.

It would be ideal for every school to teach one energy healing technique along with leading a spiritual life while also being in the real world. Just imagine how wonderful it would be if, along with Math and other subjects and languages, we could heal ourselves with the techniques taught so early in life that we are able to live as healthy and positive people all through our journey.

The current debate…conversions! We are so hung up on religious identities and intolerance of other religions that there are dedicated groups actively engaged in conversions. To what gain? Power? Controlling minds?

Isn’t it strange that no one thinks of conversion of their thoughts, destructive emotions, speech and actions? Even if we gloss over the conversion part, I don’t understand what kind of believers of a religion would want to convert others. Because enlightened people would live and let live.

Recently, there has been a picture of a temple in Dubai making rounds on whatsapp which shows a Hindu priest conducting a pooja and a Sheikh holding the pooja tray next to him. How beautiful and truly spiritual is this!

Conversions are so superficial. The soul has no religion. We just need reasons to ignite fires to control the masses. If you really mean business, why don’t you convert yourself, first from prejudices and hatred and second, from any kind of emotional negativity?

If this happens, conversions will be a thing of the past.

Compassion


If you look back at your life events, you will always find some people that you have had issues with. Some you forgive and from some you seek forgiveness. And you also forgive yourself for hurting people and mistakes made.

However, I wish it were that simple! Actually, it IS that simple to my mind. But not so to other people. In everyone’s life, there are some people who refuse to forgive. Hmmm… out of our control, right? But how do we react to this non forgiveness? Arrogantly? Humbly? Aggressively? With compassion and understanding?

You might say, “But it is not about me”. But really speaking, it IS about you, too, because you were a party to the interaction.

It is interesting to see how such incidents confront you and how you need to make peace with them, at least from your side. You are not responsible for the emotions or decisions of others. You can only clean up your slate. And that’s what should be done. When things and people stop affecting you is when you are on your way to real freedom.

Life makes us change by force if we don’t do it willingly and with understanding. We resist and resist and resist….we agonize, agonize, agonize…we defy, defy, defy…we live in conflict, combat the world day after day….

And what happens finally? Nothing but exhaustion! More and more exhaustion. Till we want to drop.

When do we call it a day? When do we start looking for a little bit of heaven? A little bit of peace?

A tortoise withdraws into its shell to keep safe during an adverse climate. Not so the human…sometimes, two people are too many! And the shell is merely a nonexistent illusion. The desire to have your will prevail at all costs blinds a human to all else. After all, aren’t the free will a gift of God? While we move slowly but surely towards exhaustion, we lose out on life itself…and then nothing matters anymore.
