The Bhagvad Gita explains that there are three paths to realizing the self. Knowledge (gyan), action (karma) and devotion (bhakti). Different people have the aptitude to adopt any of these paths.

As in case of all generalizations, we know this to be true. However, these paths are actually interconnected. Devotion or bhakti is the ultimate. Through knowledge and through karma, we ultimately realize that ultimate devotion and surrender are the final steps. And that comes from spiritual learning and action.

The main root of right knowledge is attachment. We are not our body, nor our minds. We are not our senses, nor the intellect or ego. We are not mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles. It is our role play that some take seriously. When you get hurt by these very people, this experience itself directs you towards the right knowledge and the right action. And then you realize that you are not in charge. You are not the doer. So, after exhausting yourself through ego driven actions, you finally lay down your weapons and prostrate before the light of the Almighty. For life is fragile. We are not in command for the most part though we think we are. And surrendering, there is nothing to DO. Things happen… and we are channels.

Sense of humor


Sense of humor! Sigh! If common sense is uncommon, a sense of humor is, too. You know, if you want to remove your blocks within yourself, learn to laugh at yourself about the very things that hurt and angered you earlier.

Today, we are so careful about monitoring our humor. Say the right things. Smile only so much. Facial expressions should be just correct. Oops! How exhausting!

Life is fun! Laugh. Fall and get up to run with exhilaration, with the wind blowing your hair away…feel the raindrops on your cheeks…

…and if people laugh at you, join them and make them laugh more! Be a free spirit…after all, what do you care as long as you are in tune with yourself? Neither our smile nor our happiness should be a bi product of someone else’s perceptions. Because I am because I am, not because you think I am.

Presumptions and misunderstandings have a close relationship. If you understand something or someone, you will make assumptions on the fact that you know and understand and can therefore, predict to an extent.

But when you misunderstand, that can be based on your expectations of people, people you could sometimes be colored and prejudiced about. Actions in this case may be misunderstood and hence, incorrect presumptions made, guillotining someone who may be more innocent than guilty.

We often mete out undue injustice in this way and should train ourselves to observe rather than involve in emotional leanings that might prevent clear thinking and damage relationships. We all live and learn. To correct faulty patterns is not impossible.

We have several layers of negativity piled up within us, stemming from the many lives we have lived plus the current one. To cleanse these, we have to be aware first. Then we need to have the intention to cleanse. It is not easy to do self surgery. You have to bare your soul to yourself. And that is a very painful process.

 It can take many lifetimes if you have not reached that point.

To work with angels (the 72 layers of consciousness and distortions within us) is a beautiful way to begin the cleansing process. …provided we do it with faith and consistency. Generally, people do not have enough patience to see this process through. Or any process for that matter.

I don’t think I can ever overstate the importance of cleansing and purifying to arrive at a point where universal love becomes a way of life.

How do we live through struggle periods? Because there is no one who doesn’t have such phases. In fact, as they say, it always pours, never rains. There is a tendency to get washed away in the sea of emotional and mental negativity. It takes all the courage to keep calm and often, even that is not enough. Believe me, only an indomitable spirit works! … an actual “zid”, a stubbornness to see this phase through as a challenge and at any cost. And surprisingly, such an attitude makes the task so much easier and less painful. I am sure many of you have been there and experienced what I am saying. It is a victory situation every time. So, stay positive and watch events from the outside. Stay blessed.

Each one of us has a unique view of life with, maybe, a few similarities now and then. And all this is depicted against the constant and steady Divine Energy which provides the screen for the film of our lives. Imagine what the scenario would be if we went to see a movie and both the film and the screen were moving! There is a perfect order behind the imperfection in the world of dualities. And our uniqueness lies in the craft of living that we demonstrate in our role play….as daughters and sons, as siblings, parents etc., but most definitely as potential players within the larger canvas of our intrinsic core as souls belonging to a much higher frequency than we care to understand.

Sometimes, life presents sudden priority situations wherein the routine but important ( to us ) stuff must be put aside. So, I missed put on connecting through my daily nightcap. But the unlimited kindness and mercy of the Divine has kept me spellbound on a personal level. Some mystic laws have unfolded before me, enthralling me and telling me, this is the true nature of Creation. “The good of all is the good of one.”
I have been touched by genuine acts of selflessness from people I have not known but have known for a very long time..in fact, many lifetimes. How beautiful is that ! I am blessed, blessed, blessed. My cup of joy is full. I pray that this transforming experience must touch the lives of each one.
