Choices


How much we suppress ourselves because the people around us get used to a set image of us! It is really incredible, isn’t it? And you automatically match that image because it is “expected” of you. But YOU may not get the same from others. When you conform, you have to continue to conform, or run the risk of heavy criticism and build a steel armor for yourself for it.

I had to share this post because I do believe we shy away from growing because it means change and too many boats can get rocked. The choice may not be easy, but to grow is the purpose of the soul and why it has come here in the first place. Actually, therefore, there IS no choice.

Humans have been known to forge great bonds, just as strong as hatreds sometimes. A brother could donate his kidney to his brother. A sister could conceive a child just to give it to a sister or sister in law who can’t bear children. Commendable and nothing less than a sacrifice. Yet another sister could decide to marry her own brother in law after her deceased sister, just to be a mother to their kids. Emotional moments and acts.

Physical pain is so much better understood than emotional pain. When pain is compounded many times over, its increasing depth becomes unfathomable to someone else. That is natural, I guess. They haven’t gone through the experience. Yet, they might easily sit in judgement over something despite NOT experiencing it. Whereas, some would think it prudent to cut and delete such things from their lives.

Seeking understanding from people is not always productive. In fact,quite the contrary. No blame necessary. Everyone functions from different levels including us. Life is made up of all hues, like people. People just forget that life has many hues.

I don’t know why people feel that praising anyone takes away from them. How ? I have never understood. In fact, lauding people for their , accomplishments or achievements or talent makes you feel so good ! So connected to the Divine energy that stands illuminated in each one of us.

Being generous is a true gift. Many times, if we don’t like someone, we only criticise . And praise ??? Never !!! Sad but true ! Envy ? Probably . Low self esteem ? For sure.

But once we analyse this, we must make a genuine effort to cleanse this aspect within us . Because this block really acts as a big obstacle, a hindrance in our personal growth. It blocks the heart which carries the Divine energy of divine love.

Someone said the other day, and many others say it too, that there should always be a balance of heart and head. Using only the heart doesn’t work and neither does using only the brain. The former results in much pain and being taken for granted and the latter might make you hard and calculating.

But, to complicate matters a bit, there are changing proportions on a daily basis. How much of each would make for a working balance. And therein lies the catch.

The heart is automatically made synonymous with goodness. And the brain with logic, intelligence often moving down the grid to being calculative, many perspectives and several ways of looking at this.

However, the underlying truth is that both must be used.

We are free spirits but once limited to the bodies given to us, we limit ourselves in major ways. But the body is a vehicle to have a fulfilling life as well. The irony, the apparent contradiction does not sit well on many. It is like sitting in a car and driving instead of walking on your legs. It is an apparent convenience but there is a need for judiciousness and discretion apart from skill and of course, energy petrol.

Going through life needs all of the above. And when these don’t work, the body itself becomes an impediment and the sense of freedom is gone.

This is the whole point of balancing the body, mind and soul.

Emotions


It takes a long time, and after you stop being in denial, to start getting in touch with your feelings enough to start work on them. There is a shock absorber phase when the disbelief of say, being treated badly by your loved ones, is painful. And gradually, acceptance sets in, or should set in at least, for your own sake. The healing process can only commence after the acceptance stage. And when you succeed in letting go, you know you are on your way.

Being in touch with your feelings triggers memories and reliving these can provide solutions in the present moment if we have moved on from earlier times. Meditation is the mantra for all times. It is the deepest cleanser of all times.

You tube is full of guided meditations which a beginner should definitely try. Done regularly, they bring in some wonderful changes and enhance your ability to dissipate imbalances in emotions. This has been my personal experience.

You can’t pick and choose your experiences when karma is after you. But you can cleanse karma through your own understanding and determined efforts.

It is a fact that mental and physical blocked energy manifests in the body. Similarly, any intense emotions like hatred or jealousy also manifest in retaliatory or aggressive reactions. It is almost impossible to camouflage these. They show up. And sometimes in the vehemence that comes your way. Or in a look or body language even.

But as is again a known fact, these reactions harm only the ones who harbor them, Such a self destructive exercise; But very difficult to explain this until they have their own experience.

It takes a lot to peel off the layers of our own emotional skin and reduce its thickness bit by bit. There is much microscopic study required on ourselves, because thoughts and reactions come with lightening speed. So much so that there really should not be time to study others before ourselves; A humungous task for those that have sensitized themselves enough so as to feel the transformation of energy. But there is no time like the present moment to start.
