Grief sometimes has a very deep impact. Often, very deep disappointments with very close people can also become a source of grief. What you least expect from a person can hit you hard. So, try not to let the feeling run too deep or it will affect your health.

As I was discussing with someone, as per our tradition, duty and responsibility has been given a higher role than even love. There is a very good reason for this. While doing your duty, you do what you are supposed to do. What is right by you? You don’t look at what the others are doing. So, by not being reactive, it is easy to know your “dharma” and fulfill it. No emotion. Health remains intact. It is a win situation for you. You are actually working from your higher self Great way to be.

I believe in pure intention and connectivity as being two factors that can transform anything from negative to positive. That we are connected with everything and everyone in this Universe is a fact: a conviction if you have that level of awareness to have experienced this. It is also a fact that thought is a prime energy and therefore, pure intention the thought form that raises your vibrations to a higher level to actually connect with the Divine energy that makes everything manifest. How beautiful is that!

This way, we are also connected to knowledge that lies within us but through academics and through life experiences, is just triggered in this current life and manifests into our conscious mind. Like, for example, a city you have apparently not visited before but seem familiar for no reason at all.

Our soul has lived many lives and memories of places, people, Events, reactions, responses are all stored deep within. Like you open a box to take what is within, the box of memories is waiting to be opened, scrutinized and healed wherever required. And we can all do these ourselves. It depends on the vibration levels we are able to achieve. Like a fast spinning top that does not allow any dust to settle on it.

Come to think of it, we don’t offer gratitude often enough. We are not aware enough that the burning heat of life does not touch us in extremes. Yes, there are challenges for all of us. But, many of us tend to over amplify those challenges and make a huge deal without realizing that there are worse case scenarios around us , the kind we would not be able to tolerate even , just because we have not really been burnt to experience the difference .

We have kind of escaped the areas that the mines have been laid out or have lucked out in not entering those areas. And what you don’t experience ever becomes a memory to learn from.

Somewhere along the way, each time we forgot to say “thank you” to the Universe, we lost a little bit of our energy. And each time we are filled with gratitude, we are transported to a higher plane where there is happiness and joy. They are generated from within and so, also, remain with us over a long period of time.

It is very easy to slip into an inertia mode if things don’t work out as you want in life, specially over a long period of time. When disappointments keep happening and hope ebbs away slowly and steadily. And ” what’s the point” becomes your theme song. And then, if you are able to pull yourself up and out of THIS frame of mind, you are truly admirable in spirit.

This is not to sit in judgement over those who find it difficult to overcome this situation. It takes a Herculean effort .

I feel that just as we look upon “annadaan”or feeding the needy as a divine service, bringing people out of their depressions is a major service. Suicides are a result of such hopeless depressions. Life is a gift but unfortunately, does not register as one to those afflicted with deep hopelessness.

If every member of a family understands the importance of this, and that if sharing and caring, this stage of depression can be averted. God’s work, for sure. And this also applies to caring for orphans and those who have strayed out of anger and frustration with life.

They say extra pure and sensitive souls are loved by God. We also see such souls suffer in this world. Big time. These are definitely old souls who have had many lives, some difficult ones. And those who want to make their own way against what is ordained tend to struggle more.

If something really huge , like a curse, follows you into this life, you can really spend your whole life where love and success will elude you. Where people around you will oppose you. Where you could wonder why this is happening ?

When something happens in repeated patterns, you know apast life has followed you. Makes it a tad easier to understand but not to experience. Because you take wrong decisions. You tend to upset people. You could sometimes isolate yourself. … and so on. The repercussions and results are many.

Some agonised souls may switch off from the world and simply exist. Others may become withdrawn or depressed. To make the most of a life is a very different task for different people.

If we are afraid of saying what we think is right or fair, we are definitely damaging ourselves in the long run. There is never any end to compromising after that. We have to move along in the same direction, against what we believe in. And we do this to prevent isolation.

Diplomacy, tact and words like that are not meant as compromising in any way. I think we haven’t checked our dictionaries in a long time. Subtle differences elude us. Even bigger ones do.

To be accepted, to be popular, what is the price tag? And to be upright and state your truth, albeit diplomatically, what is the price tag? It is a choice again.

If life can be described as per my perception of reality, it is a whole lot of phases, of dots that get connected as you look back. There are periods of transition that come in response to the saturation of one phase. Something works for a period of time and then they don’t work too well and this is a time for change. And so the process goes on.

But this is not to say there is no connection. There are links between the phases, or you would not be able to join the dots later in life. As we mature, we can look back and start understanding what happened back there. Not that one should live with guilt and bitterness. Could it have been better? Sure, if YOU knew better! But you didn’t. So, what happened?

Many a time, I hear friends talk with great guilt after the bereavement of a parent, about not doing their best. “I could have done better, contacted a better doctor, and been more vigilant”. Could you really have? And they carry this burden on an unrecognizable persona: THEM. To what end?

This can be only the result of feeling out of control. But then, we ARE out of control with destiny. It unfolds the way it must and we start imagining that we could have changed it. Yes, but did you? Could you? What does this say to you? Even if it had changed the way you wanted, actually, it was meant to. That’s all. Where do you come in? You just try your best. I have to use the cliche “leave it to God”.

We speak of the law of attraction, as if it works for all of us. If it were that easy, every human being would want to attain the earth for eternity. So to say, if everyone could take ladder leaps from the first to the 10th step, why would the ladder have the in between steps at all?

Let’s get real.
