When we think negative, we tend to think and see the worst in everything. We also tend to be more pessimistic during such phases. It can turn into a vicious cycle of thinking the worst, losing hope and again, thinking the worst because we lose hope. This pattern goes into a loop.

But I have also seen such patterns replaced by some very remarkable positive ones. The trick is to always visualize a candle in the darkness. And that flame can expand and expand until there is no darkness. After all, darkness is just an absence of light, isn’t it?

The power of thought and of constant positive visualization is irreplaceable. If only humans knew how to channelize their higher self which is a powerhouse?

Letting go is the only way to spiritual upliftment that is, if one is looking for it, letting go of any sentiments of attachment which become bondage. People generally misunderstand this as letting go of caring and compassion. Anything that ties you down is not really healthy either a relationship or a city or people who depend on your energy to feel good.

This awareness is extremely important. When the weaker ones feed on your energy, it debilitates you. And you become ineffective for your own forward movement and are also unable to help others in the bargain.

This is likely to happen when, in a relationship, one move on and the other needs to hang on. The auras don’t match and there is an issue, a conflict of sorts. We live day to day with many such situations but don’t know how to read these situations correctly; In terms of the changing equations of energies. Once we know what is happening, we will be able to take proactive steps to prevent reoccurrences of such episodes in our lives.

Probability


Sometimes, we reach a deadlock within ourselves. Which way to go? What to do? These are times when probably we don’t want to do a trade off to make choice. We want it all.

I think it would be great at such times, as someone said, to write a letter to your future self. Great idea! To visualize your future self and then make choices, how do I want to be in future? What kind of a person? Accordingly, you make your decisions today. There is less probability of going wrong. And we will learn to take corrective measures more easily.

Knowledge multiplies as you share it, because when you share it, you need to have assimilated it well yourself and with each assimilation comes more depth. And there comes a point where you can bring it down to basics and explain it simply. That’s the true test of your knowledge.

There are people who read from books and teach. But how much introspection goes before the teaching is to be gauged. How much the knowledge from books is crystallized is the question.

Sometimes, we tend to speak without adequate knowledge of people and other things. And when there are people around, young and old, someone is taking this seriously. So, one really has a huge responsibility to speak with care, not idly, and to impart knowledge with care.

When our heart knows something is about to end, we still don’t want to accept it. We want to prolong the experience, sometimes for the wrong reasons. The natural outcome of whatever is meant to be will happen only when “I” get out of the way, so to speak “I”, meaning my “wrong reasons” like guilt, pity, dependence, inability to take hard decisions and so on.

People are always talking about practical living but I don’t really know the extent of the meaning. What constitutes the “impractical” part? It might be different for different people.

However, the one valuable experience I can share is, if you desire something don’t look at it in the face. Turn away and it will come to you when you least expect it and when the time is right. And if it doesn’t, then maybe, it was never meant to be. And in all this thought process, l am keeping myself as merely an observer, an analyst. “I” am not there.

Life challenges


The worst thing that happens is when we feel life has cheated us. This is the consequence of taking wrong decisions, maybe even leaving the decisions for our life on others. The journey of each individual is different. Life challenges everyone in one way or another but some have support coming their way and some keep seeking support.

There is much advice coming forth from people who mean well. But if there is no inner confidence in you, the necessary steps may not get taken at all. To forge ahead, one needs to be oblivious to opinions, criticisms and the like. And I also see that if wounds are deep, one can stop moving and progressing. I guess you heal when you not only stop getting affected by people but also, cease to become self critical to the point of harming and damaging yourself.

The true measure of a person is dependability. You may not meet for months but the one you think of first in a crisis is a friend indeed or family. How close such people have to be to you!

Can you go beyond the SMS and the whatsapp to reach out? If someone texted asking if you needed help, your instinct would always is to refuse because if you really want to help, you would not be asking.

One has to be very honest and lip service is not honesty. At the end of the day, an offer is just that an offer. Standing at someone’s doorstep unasked, unannounced, to be of help is actual help.

An angle we need to work on.
