As much as we need to move along superficially in this world, paradoxically, we do need depth as well. Fine Arts, Creative arts develop a fine and detailed understanding of the emotional aspects of life and people. Dance gives you an understanding of your physical body and postures. Going beyond, both music and dance give insights into our soul. Any classical form is divine.

Once we develop that depth on all levels, physical, emotional and soul levels, then there develops a wholesomeness to us that can create a major bond and understanding with ourselves.

It is vital for generations to develop the creative brain along with academic excellence. We need to harmonize the many facets of us, which we can’t, if we don’t develop them.

There are people who, for some reason, do not trust or have faith in most people. They are suspicious. What happens then is that they close their mind and heart to even good advice because they don’t trust.

Observers can see many more traits clearly than the person who is experiencing negativity. They are heavily into the denial mode. The tragedy is that they also get distanced from people, sometimes from people they have been close to. Their vision gets clouded and they can’t discriminate the sincere from the insincere.

The bottom line being that we are responsible for our lives, we need to pull up our socks, however impossible it may seem to do so during that low phase. There are all kinds of solutions available and possible if we don’t start obsessively harping on just that one which is not a working solution. We just need to trust that things will get better if we know how to make them better and keep trying until they do.

Blessings


Beautiful lines. We receive so many blessings all through life and all the time. But our eyes are desperately on the locked doors of our own desires which we keep knocking on. Some of those doors have nothing but grief beyond them but we persist. And ironically, those that are open we walk through without evaluating what we leave behind when we carelessly stride through.

This is the human folly that we see within us and around us that triggers waves of unhappiness. The capacity to deepen an experience lies within us. To stand still and breathe in the nectar from the air is ours to do. And the more we breathe in, the deeper the resonance of the depth.

This is exactly why our peers have recommended counting our blessings. Because with each count, the blessing gains strength and more it gains in strength, the deeper is lodges within the psyche and the more it manifests constantly.

I want to talk about real people today, people who laugh and cry, love and lie, are honest sometimes and manipulative at other times. People who hurt and who forgive. Ordinary people who can be extraordinary. Intelligent ones who can goof up every now and then, people who can make a mistake and laugh at themselves. People who can bear a lifelong grudge and let go also.

How does one live in a synthetic world of ” best behavior 24•7 ” it would be an exhausting exercise. Smile politely. Talk politely. Keep your voice down just enough. Never say a contradictory word. Always agree to the opinion of others. Just listen … and all will be well apart from the fact that you would in this case, be one of the most boring people one had the “fortune” of knowing.

Give me real people any day. The “dhishoom dhishoom” types. They have an interesting personality at least.

Phases


Sometimes, you go through a phase where you meet the same kind of people again and again…like a repeated pattern. In negativity, you attract negative people and in positivity the positive people. At the same time, there is an unseen film of past karmas that plays in the background simultaneously. We also start attracting those people and events which stun us, are overwhelming and inevitable. We tell ourselves we don’t deserve this.

What we call “bad” days or “bad” phases are often of this nature. Some call it the impact of “shani”. We must look for a reason, of course. Or an object to transfer blame to acquit ourselves. If truth were to be told, what we tackle day to day is a mix of our own choices and our compromises of those choices. And in all these choices, there is a definite play of our thoughts and actions from the past, some of which mould our present. Those who are within serious spiritual practices get to see more of these challenges in their lives, tests that must be passed before a further elevation is granted.

I have noticed that there is opaqueness in the experience of karma, too. Like, people working behind the scenes and sudden exposure to events orchestrated meticulously behind the scenes…things like that. Dramatic! But true. Anyways, we must deal with such phases without going down and under and hope that our constant companion will be courage. For all times.

When there is drought, even a few drops of rain have the power to cause excitement. The kindness of people is similar. Every little sincere act inspires gratitude. The absence of genuine kindness is like a drought. So, suddenly, when you come across people who you haven’t had a close connection with but who spontaneously offer help, it makes you can feel those raindrops fall on your heart.

Life has become very clinical, mechanical ….like dance without expression, like music discordant, like a house which is not a home….I guess, I find the soul missing in many around me. And I often feel that souls on the earth must be experiencing much loneliness. Imagine being connected and not realizing it! Being lonely when there really is no need to be so. Deliberately hurting someone , not knowing that it is definitely coming back to you…or often knowing it but still doing it…succors for inviting grief.

Oh! Humans! Get a life!

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.
