Thoughts


Have we ever thought that our thoughts are linked with our karma? If you notice, when we are weak and family members are negative around, success eludes at the best of times.

For example, a simple case of a child failing in exams! This soul, due to its past karma, takes negative decisions, wastes time and fail. Parents keep thinking that it is the child’s fault and keep saying that the child IS going to fail because of the digression of the child’s mind. This energy becomes the energy in the home and it actually makes the negative happen. So, in the family circle, this child is being sacrificed to negative energy. It is like igniting a fire.

Instead, the circle around the child should surround this child with positive energy and send only good thoughts to the child so that it can reform the thoughts and take the right decisions to channelize its energy towards work and pass the exams.

In any family or group environment, blaming, anger, admonishing a child and diminishing it shows the weakness of the parent, not the child. That it is imperative for the whole circle of people around to fill the environment with positivity to get positive results in good time.

At the start of the year, you should resolve to defeat your karma as the chief resolution. Sounds strange, right? How that is possible is the immediate thought. I love to quote the story of Savitri and Satyavaan in which Savitri brought her dead husband back to life from the possession of Yama, the God of death.

Symbolically and otherwise, the one aspect visible in this story is that with courage and passion, anything is possible. And that’s why I say, if that karma was defeated, all karma can be defeated.

How?

That you have to experience the consequences of your past karma is a reality. But HOW you choose to do so is a decision that lies squarely in your court. You can either transform the experience into a new beginning or cry all the way.

The beauty of life is, even if you do not get what you wanted in one or two aspects of life, there are many other aspects available to develop because we are very vast beings, connected to a very large canvas of energy. Why do we need to limit ourselves?

You know, I have seen many people go to a multiplex, only to find the movie they wanted to see showing a houseful board but they look at other options and find the best one under the circumstances. Why? Because they had made up their minds to see a movie that day.

Isn’t life somewhat similar? So, maybe, I wanted to be a doctor but ended up being a pharmacist. Maybe, I badly wanted kids but could not have them. So, I decided to adopt one. Or maybe, I wanted the proverbial perfect marriage but circumstances were not perfect and I decided to develop other talents I had. And kept my friendship going with the spouse. Positivity all the way…

The moment you click on the “options” button, you see a drop down menu with a wide range of choices and if you are a positive, die hard kind of a person, some options will definitely engage your mind and imagination.

 Hey, after all, we are in this world for a specific period of time. There is no time to cry over anything. Instead, whatever karma is unfolding before you in your life is only giving you a chance to turn to other activities which are waiting to be explored and can be brought within your reach with enough passion and a desire to make good your life.

So, you have a Rukmini Devi starting to learn Bharatnatyam at 30 years of age and you have a Kalakshetra in Chennai as an evidence of her passion for the art. Look around and many such legends can be seen.

So, karma resolution through transformation is very doable. Just don’t let yourself go down with self pity and don’t let yourself sink into the illusion of darkness…for, that’s all it is an illusion…there is nothing like darkness. It is the absence of light that we call darkness. Light is the only reality.

It is so strange that although the body and mind are connected, very often, they feel disconnect also. The mind rules the body but the body language is unaware that the mind is speaking through it. It is largely the mind that affects the body.

When we talk of a twisted mind, we are also seeing a visible effect on the body through the facial expressions. Likewise, we fail to hide our joy that the mind is generating.

There are books and books on mind control, but few on body control unless you look and yoga and exercise. But even so, yoga is also done for mind control apart from muscle control and toning.

So, the awareness that the mind body complex is interdependent and not separated is the right awareness for the right balance.

The ingenuity of the human mind can conjure up “genuine” reasons and justifications for actions and behavior. We are masters at the game of illusions which are a product of our creativity.

But there is only one reality. Sooner or later, we will arrive at that. Rather, we will HAVE to arrive at that. Like a derailed train or delayed train that might reach its destination late…how late would depend on how soon the obstacles can be cleared. Life is pretty much like that. The difference is, in our case, only we can clear those blocks and obstacles. We can go round and round but ultimately, we have to find our path to reality. If we won’t exercise the right choices, we will be led to the right choice….

Vibrations


We know that many old souls are being born on earth, because the earth is ready to take a leap of vibrations. These souls have experiences of many life times and therefore, have gone through much learning. So, they are very mature. You cannot treat them like babies. They are focused and quick to learn.

In comparison, the new souls are immature, unaware and often, brash because they don’t have much learning as yet. Therefore, there is a huge need of understanding humans within their environment and behavioral patterns. I don’t think most of us are in a position to judge them.

Adversity


Adversity makes a refined person for the sheer experiences which are huge learning lessons. Of course, unless we are busy cursing our luck and everyone else…

When adversity comes our way, we tend to kind of sink into it like being enveloped by a dark cloud. Very quickly, we lose our power of thinking and finding solutions.

Instead, searching for our inner resources is definitely more productive in the long run. Man has been responsible for wonderful innovations. Do you think it happened in a day and without trial and error for days, months and perhaps, years? Did they never see adversity or go through phases to quit? But the end product was too exciting and whatever adversity came was dealt with a new vigour and a sense of challenge.

Imagine how meaningless life would be without adversity! What would happen to our creativity for one? And how would we feel alive and purposeful?

One of the greatest challenges on the path of evolution is living in the present and awareness every second. To hold every thought outside and examine it for its purity/pollution before internalizing it. How easy this difficult exercise makes our life! Almost like a game. Because the inner being accepts only the positive. And what to accept is completely in our power. 

Yes. It is difficult until it becomes easy…but it DOES become easy for the ones who persevere.
