There are so many built in systems within us which, when we discover, we also marvel at. Putting them into words is difficult. Like the inner voice which tells you what to do if it is loud and clear. Of course, if we have muffled it along the way, it is a different story altogether.

Then the choices of feeling, should I mind this? Or should I feel bad? Should I feel happy or sad? Shall I give in or resist eating heavy calorie foods?

Then, there is the system of the body relating the story of the mind. All the psychosomatic problems that manifest in the body, telling us all is not well.

And if you know how to read the systems, you could nip any arising issues in the bud. There aren’t any external systems that can be originators of issues. Look within. All the treasure and all the “poison” is all there.

Getting into someone’s emotional shoes is very difficult. Sometimes, people are not even aware of what others go through. I mean the “near and dear” ones. A lack of compassion!  

Probably I can’t but be cynical when everyone makes the “right” moves and overtures because it is festival time and about the rest of the year, the less said the better.

Socializing, partying, endorsing “friendships” by being with friends and spending time with them has become more gratifying than spending time with family.

There should be less hypocrisy and more honesty because the world has changed and those who crave for family relationships must become wiser , less expecting and read the writing on the walls which are loud and clear.

I see so much isolation in the hearts of those who grapple to give a genuine smile to the world. It seldom reaches the eyes. Amidst the loud noise of the crackers, hearts are teary and heavy.

I am not morose, just saying it as I see it. And my heart goes out to those who have no joy in their hearts, whether Holi or Divali because they don’t want to go through the rights motions just for a day anymore.

There are moments in everyone’s life when the world seems to be rushing by with us watching it go by, and unable to connect to that crazy frenzy. At such times, we can either feel a sense of relief and peace or a craving to be a part of it. If the latter is true, there is likely to be some amount of regret, depression, emptiness at the inability to connect. This is not such a bad thing. Because only when we are alone with ourselves can we introspect, instead of wanting people around which does work as a distraction for the mind. Sometimes, it is good to start connecting with yourself, too. The best evolution results can be seen then.

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.

It seems a dilemma when Krishna asks Arjuna to surrender all his actions to him and act according to dharma. On the other hand, we are taught to take ownership of our actions. Those who go into these questions find no easy formula to master. When to surrender and when to own our actions?

A constant self assessment is a way to understand the qualitative difference between these two. Even surrender is not that simple. To surrender completely is not even to plan and just let things happen. Just flow. Can we do that? Generally Impossible.

We really need to understand all the layers of our mind that we create for ourselves and then find ways to peel them off when understanding dawns. Meditation is a powerful tool to scan ourselves in a way no MRI or ECG can.

The inner voice speaks only when there is silence around it and it can be heard.

The Universe is buzzing around us, giving us so many opportunities, so much support, so many kindred souls to help . Yet, we are unable to move forward and create experiences at an optimum level. Our eyes scan far away horizons when everything is so close. Perhaps, that is why we can’t see it. It is too close .

The formulae for our well being are also perhaps as simple as the gifts from the universe are closer than we think or we know. We simply look in the wrong place.

Reminds me of the woman who lost her needle inside her hut but was looking for it outside in her yard only because the light was in the yard, while her hut was dark.

Similarly, we also look to raising our vibrations through external sources whereas the tools lie within us. We constantly look in the wrong place.

Everything within our mind rests on the root cause which transforms into effect. Half the population in this world suffers from depression, for example. But there is always a root cause, a place where it started. We are unable to identify it many a time because of the opacity of the many layers surrounding it due to the cyclical effect of cause and effect.

Still, if we could even put our ego aside for a while and then try and go back to the root cause, it might be possible to identify it. Very often, it is minuscule but becomes a mountain with successive attacks by the ego.

The appearance of the actual cause can miraculously clear the path for eradication of the root cause. That is why, in the language of the healers, reliving is releasing.
