In the Indian discipline, fasting has many benefits. Many religions also advocate it as a cleanser of toxins. The benefits, however, are many if fasting extends in thought, word and deed.

Therefore, “mounaā€¯ or silence is very important. Silencing your thoughts, your speech and abstaining from toxic foods purifies the system. It purifies thoughts, exercises some measure of control over speech automatically and puts you in a placid and calm state of mind.

Children in schools should be initiated most definitely. A daily exercise of silence or chanting for a few minutes to start the day with can make a sizeable difference to those who are hyperactive. The younger generations of parents are incorporating this technique on a daily basis with positive results.

It really would be ideal to introduce parts of the earlier “Gurukul” system of holistic education to make the future generations ethically, morally, mentally, emotionally and physically strong and balanced.

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.

Someone asked me what one should do if someone hurts you with either speech or behavior. It becomes simple when: You accept that getting hurt is choice we make.

When you accept that the one you get hurt by is unhappy in some way and reacts in a way that hurts you and that we are attached to that behavior personally with our ego

Just as anything you throw at a wall will fall on the ground after hitting the wall, so much other people’s deeds fall to the ground if YOU let them.

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.

Why is it that quiet people are generally ignored? Just because they don’t indulge in constant chatter even if it is trivial or meaningless, just to make their presence felt? I have also noticed that they are not given credit for much brain either. Almost as if, being quiet is being dumb.

The quality of being judgmental is our birthright, you see. So, how can one let it go? How will we form opinions then? They are generally formed on this very premise and such premises, on others and their lifestyles and personalities.

One should always look beyond the facade. Very often, quiet people have much depth of learning and understanding. It is also a fact that those who elevate spiritually find their minds quietening and so do their speech levels. It is true that they don’t feel the need to talk and comment incessantly on something or another. One should never judge them hastily. They could be thinkers who don’t need validation from external sources.

Destination


Any pursuit leads to its destination . Anything prayed for with intensity happens. But, there is a proviso. There should be no doubt. There should be consistency and relentless pursuit until it is achieved. No deviation either. Getting off track spells lack of success until you get back on track once again . It will now possibly take you longer because you lost focus.

For those non achievers who felt disappointed , they probably did not put their heart and soul into an activity with one hundred percent positivity and certainty. Even one percent doubt could distance you from reaching your destination. The trouble is, we are unable to sense minute misgivings. Even those should not crop up.

Actually, there is a difference in “doing” and ” being done through you”. The first is ego driven. “I” am doing it. The second is what the Universe channels through you. When and if we reach the latter state, there won’t be a feeling named “doubt”. Because the doer and the action are one, not separate.

Sign of wisdom


Apparent vs opaque. What seems to be is often not. And what we would not imagine, often is. What appears to be apparent may be just a surface layer which probably could not be penetrated. And what is opaque has a very dense energy around it , which can and cannot be looked into.

But what really works is face value. Taking things at face value is the sign of wisdom. Because this definitely prevents unnecessary analysis and sometimes, over reaction also, which can get pretty out of hand and uncomfortable. Why go there at all ?
