When you criticize someone, sometimes, you envy because you want to be like them. But at the same time, you don’t want to emulate them. A bit contradictory for sure. But looking deeper, it means there is some originality of spirit waiting to illuminate itself. There is so much substance within us, we don’t know it ourselves.

Often, in mere defiance of others telling you this, you turn the other way either out of sheer laziness to explore within or disbelief of the self. “Just couldn’t be bothered” would be another reason. And the current comfort zone would be a huge one.

We end up wasting much of our special gifts. But ironically, what we don’t know of, we don’t miss.

So, don’t worry. Be happy. At the end of the day, this matters.

Sometimes, you feel all your supports caving in. That you are standing in the scorching sun with not a trace of any shade around you, as in the burning sands of a desert. This is pretty much the reality of many who have chronic back problems, especially the lower back. Feeling a total lack of support.

Actually, it is a dark perception that emanates from within the complexity of the mind. We shun and we are shunned. And isolation is the result. More important, there is a cloud over the universal and Divine support which is always there for the asking, but not automatic.

Affirmations make a world of difference. A wonderful affirmation for this condition would be:

The Divine Spirit supports me completely and structures my life.

I am blessed, safe, loved and totally supported. For a minimum of 21 consecutive days without a break.

The mind begins to calm down and reconnects with the Divine energy.

Trait


To be dependable is a great character trait. Can people do that with you? When you say something, you do it. When you commit something, you stand by it. You value your words as much as others do because you top them up with action, a great quality, indeed.

I see loose words hanging in the air a lot. You learn to understand who says things for effect and will never act on them. In the long run, you simply can’t depend on them. Not a good thing and not the best way to be or the best reputation to have. Because it demonstrates that you are not committed even to yourself.

I hear people say that they are committed to some and not to others. But then, don’t offer or promise to do things for people you are NOT feeling committed to. Then you are okay and would still be called a committed person. People have forgotten that words are energy and are to be valued.

Just because the clouds hide the sun doesn’t negate its existence. And just because the loved ones pass from this world doesn’t mean they are not connected with us. I do believe they watch over us. And I do believe we carry their energy within us, within our memory bank.

It would be nice to acknowledge them and all the elevated souls who are within reach should we ever want to reach out for help. And even if we don’t, they are the epitome of unconditional love.

This also shows the importance of the family tree, each member closely connected in group karma and therefore, very important in our evolution.

Ironing out the creases of life is a life well spent Or else to truly forget and make merry. Celebrate life every day. Some of us who were brought up to admonish our own shadow for losing our seriousness value the light moments of our lives more than others would understand.

To shut out anything heavy consciously is no mean task. The lightness of being happens as we drop the burdens we carry. Ironically and contrary to everything else, this process is not time bound or tabulated. One spark of realization about the futility of carrying your load and it can be like instant coffee. Instant Nirvana! Or then, there is always the possibility of the one step forward and two backwards theories.

So much unlearning and unwinding precedes becoming light for many of us who have wound ourselves tightly and created several knots. Generally takes a lot of time to loosen and let go. So, there is no better time than NOW to start, Better late than “The late”.

Purity


Envy makes people do one of the two things: either putting down the object of envy directly, or deliberately putting up other people in their presence, especially when in a group.

Forget methods for a minute! It is just so sad that there is that need to feel envious.

I remember the simple question we were asked in school. How do you shorten a line without touching it? And the answer was, by drawing a bigger line next to it. Very positive!

But in this case, it is hardly positive. The method is the same but intentions so different. It is really the intention that determines all action and outcome. And the origin of any intention is either positive or negative.

Simple! If we kill to save or protect a life, that is positive. But if we are overly generous but inwardly not well wishers, whatever we do lacks purity, because the intention lacks purity.

Purity is simple. And positive intention is simple, too. There are no layers of deviousness there, nor required either.

All our lives we try and try and try…to grow and grow and grow…

We run to every opportunity there is…for healing. Different methods, a rehash of similar methods, meditation camps, workshops, tarot cards, astrology, angels, pranayama, pranic healing, reiki, hypnotherapy…etc….

And once you have been everywhere, you realize that nothing really changes if you don’t change yourself through self practice. At that stage, you feel you have read enough, listened enough, imbibed enough. And now it is time to experience. This is perhaps the starting point for change. And this is what is the most significant landmark in your life. Whatever else you may do with your life on the physical level.
