Laughter


Laughter is the best medicine but humor is so personal. Slapstick comedies can have a very antiseptic reaction for cerebral people. Like, “what is so funny in this?” While another set of people could be rolling on the floor.

Some just love the dry, British humor while for some; it has to be “in the face” humor. No subtlety wanted.

But life must be lived with humor laced with a pinch of salt as well. Whatever brand of humor you can respond to. I would rather shed tears from laughing uncontrollably than from crying uncontrollably. Wouldn’t you?

The heart gets weary for sure, trying to understand people, their actions, situations, in fact, everything but oneself. Until one day, you don’t want to understand anything anymore. After all, all the whys can take you on the merry go round until vertigo strikes you. And by the time you feel you have understood somewhat, things change again.

The futility of understanding! Rocks your world knocks you down and you gain little! And suffer a lot! Yes, the heart does get very weary. That’s probably why people just live on the surface.

The importance of communication! Very close bonds have been broken, only due to a lack of communication, usually more by one person. Sometimes, by both the warmth of communicating have not many substitutes. Communication is that warm energy that keeps even the love flowing in relationships.

Isn’t it true that when we keep in touch regularly, it demonstrates a certain caring that says, “I am thinking of you”.

It is different in case of people who have lost touch with each other. But a distance does tend to develop if you don’t hear from someone for months and they don’t think it is a big issue. Sometimes, it just boils down to a one sided relationship where the efforts made are unequal, Of course having said that, the needs of people differ in this matter. This is where the role of understanding comes in. And this is where one must see the reasons for a particular status in bonds being close or being diluted or even severed.

Routine gives us that anchor, that steadiness of mind that actually makes creativity easier. Imagine if we were in a frenzy to create something all the time! Our minds would be nothing short of yo-yos. Ideas germinate and take time to manifest.

Have you seen a write scribble, then bunch up the papers in frustration and relegate them to the garbage bin, again and again? The mind can become that garbage bin if we don’t watch out. Ideas, thoughts, millions of them might emerge and nothing might come of them.

But when the mind is steady, at least some ideas would see the light of day. Everything needs a steady base to create the required movement.

Wisdom


When you post some very profound words of wisdom , people often show a doubt in that , can we really practice all of it ? True that it takes an awful lot of will, determination and desire to walk that path. Not to mention a constant awareness. And many , therefore, turn around and walk back to the path is comfort. The common statement is, “ come on ! I am not a saint”.

As if the path of wisdom is only meant for the saints, or, the extraordinary ! And yet, if you read the biographies of the world famous personalities, some started at the bottom and worked their way up. This kind of gamut of experiences and learned wisdom to make such a stupendous success of their lives can be a beacon for those who think they can never emulate such people successfully.

The real Issue is not that we can’t do it. It is , that we have slotted ourselves as people with limitations, that of being “ordinary”. Or just with an established pattern which we kind of like and are settled into.

Actually, there is wisdom inside all of us , wherever we are and whatever we do. We just don’t know that we can use it anytime, in fact, must use it to better our understanding about everything to graduate to higher vibrational levels as students of life do.

Consequences


I have realized that to be critical of yourself and hard on yourself can turn out to be a huge punishment in your future life and can really alter the quality of your life. To feel guilty, remorseful is human up to a point. But all your life ? Even to kick yourself for not doing things in a different way and looking at an undesirable outcome can really psyche you into believing you are inadequate or foolish or whatever tag you want to give yourself. Before others do it, you are doing it to yourself.

It makes no difference though. When the arrow leaves the bow, it will pierce something somewhere. Remember the story of Shravan kumar ? The king was innocent but had to bear the consequences of hitting the wrong target.

We do this very often out of our ignorance or misguided ness even. But having said that, what next is the moot question. How are we going to deal with a situation which was not in our control ? Or we thought it was but….. it has happened in a certain way. That is the reality.

This is the point at which wisdom comes in. Life has never been black and white. The shades of grey are what make you move through life. Solutions have to be found for our own well being . And if we have to bear consequences, we have to simply bear them.

The aftermath is an encounter with a person of toxic energy can be an extremely debilitating one. Even retaliating makes you feel you are hitting against the wall and often, bleeding.

The tragic part is that you discover that you are not devoid of toxicity yourself because you actually did pretty much what you despised in the first place. Evidently, it is somewhere within and bursts forth without warning triggered off by the other person.

Walking away from situations is probably an intelligent decision. Ignoring is another solution. Gritting your teeth and smiling is another but jokes apart, although it gets tough to not retaliate when someone is being plain obnoxious, it is wiser to step aside. And if you have a relapse, try and try again.
