It takes a while for people to believe that we can heal ourselves in many ways. Because we are responsible for making ourselves ill in the first place, we have also been endowed with self healing powers. Some terminal cases have been healed , too. Two cases that I know of with terminal illnesses cured themselves just through a few hours of pranayama per day.

The fact of the matter is , our thoughts and emotions when starting to deeply embed within ourselves are what manifest later. Negative emotions arising out of negative thoughts are the core reason for a gradual

Deterioration in health.

People ask me how any “ normal” person can stop feeling hurt or sad or depressed or angry at some time and in some situations. Sure ! True. But it is one thing to feel it momentarily and another to let it fester. Instead, it is healthier to let it go. Any emotion that is doing harm instead of good cannot be acceptable.

If relationships you have valued get affected, if restlessness and guilt sets in, if peace eludes you and thoughts crowd you each second, you haven’t started walking towards the path of light.

Become aware of the patterns and stereotypes you live with and don’t hesitate in asking for forgiveness, forgiving yourself and erase any memories that are painful, knowing they are just your perceptions. Give the benefit of doubt . And let go , let go. How many times ? Well, all the time. Holding on will harm you. It will bring illnesses you don’t need anytime soon , in fact, not at all.

So, relax. Have a “char minar,” as the saying goes.

They say extra pure and sensitive souls are loved by God. We also see such souls suffer in this world. Big time. These are definitely old souls who have had many lives, some difficult ones. And those who want to make their own way against what is ordained tend to struggle more.

If something really huge , like a curse, follows you into this life, you can really spend your whole life where love and success will elude you. Where people around you will oppose you. Where you could wonder why this is happening ?

When something happens in repeated patterns, you know apast life has followed you. Makes it a tad easier to understand but not to experience. Because you take wrong decisions. You tend to upset people. You could sometimes isolate yourself. … and so on. The repercussions and results are many.

Some agonised souls may switch off from the world and simply exist. Others may become withdrawn or depressed. To make the most of a life is a very different task for different people.

Observe


To have an opinion means you are a thinking person. To be rigid about your opinion shows that you have not churned your opinion with that of others and then found yours to be the final and convincing one. To keep changing your opinion means you are unsure of yourself. To shy away from voicing your opinion means that you might be intimidated by others who express freely. And to keep voicing your opinion at every step shows an ego which is not really inspired by knowledge.

And this is just my opinion based on observations and waiting to be churned with those of others on their observations.

Have you noticed that when you plan and work towards something, there will most certainly be last minute glitches and little, little obstacles coming your way, Sudden changes and sudden diversions. It is uncanny. And this goes on through life. I often ask whether some people go through more and some less. Whether some go through less but more intense experiences or little irritants throughout life?

But then, you have to find justifications to accept that which is beyond control. That is the bottom line. This thought is perhaps a continuation of my earlier thought in a recent post:

That life happens when we are busy planning it according to our desires. However, let us not dwell just on these but on the larger happiness beyond the immediate hurdles that makes life worth living.

Circumventing life! Do we really know how to live life? From the time of our birth, we are gradually moving towards death. But that’s not the point. We die several deaths in life even before death actually happens. Either we live with past memories or with anxiety for the future. Almost as if that cutting of the umbilical cord at birth has the same effect as the severing of the cord of the kite in the sky, leaving it swaying in space , completely directionless and blown away by the wind to wherever it takes the kite.

We are not geared to living in the moment. That cord has been severed, too. And the reason is, we don’t actually know how to live this way. The past and future thoughts leave no space for the present. So, our thoughts are also blown and scattered here and there and we just don’t know the art of retrieving them and filing them where they belong or letting them go, as the case may be.

Each day passes, never to return. But all we do is frame our memories in picture frames and spend our lives looking at them, some with happiness, some with sadness and some with regret. Where is the space for the present? Where is the motivation to shake off the dust and start off again towards a new horizon?

Healing


When you get pushed into circumstances unknowingly and they turn out to be adverse, even ugly, you quickly tell yourself it was karma, because you had no valid explanation. But when, knowingly, you step into such circumstances, there is anger. Even rage, at yourself, either for having trusted the wrong people or having listened against your inner voice to someone you “respected” Or for a cloudy judgment. In any case, it IS karma to be in a place and among people you were chosen to be with. But it is very difficult to look at it this way when your life is crumbling to pieces and your desires are a distant dream.

Changing your place and your space gives you breathing space.

As you grow older, perhaps, you only seek consolidation of people around you who have stood the test of time AND been with you, People who have been kind and loving, healing in their presence. And I understand why the importance is not “family” per se but souls who may or may not be family but who have a salutary effect on you. Oh yes, and loyal, too.

Old postulates and belief systems are just that: old. And often don’t work. What works is being among those who see your chinks but treat them and you lovingly and accept without criticism and without judgment.

For, who really knows when your last day might be?

I wonder often… when one actually reaches closure to anything. When a wound stops festering and begins to heal and whether it is ever given a chance to keep healing or whether someone keeps touching the raw nerves so that they never heal, at all. And time passes, it stays until it’s time to pass on.

The agony of the human being is completely underestimated and / or undermined because no one can get into anyone’s shoes to experience it. But many claim to. And many are critical without understanding. This is something I have yet to understand. It is truly amazing.

And to make matters worse and more challenging is the compulsory and social need to wear a happy surface skin which hangs loosely because the wounded skin is so tightly wrapped around.

Blessed are the souls who can feel this deeply about others.
