Intentions


To respond with responsibility! Two key words here: “response” and “responsibility”. If we are responsible and act with responsibility, we will respond to everything. They go hand in hand with our maturity levels also. And maturity means well thought out action inspired by good intentions and in the best interest of all. Through a positive and a balanced mind. See the connection?

But here, we must have a strong faith in our core strength. Only then will responses become elevated, come from our higher selves and a high benchmark of positivity.

We are creating ourselves everyday…in fact, each minute. If we are reacting, we are getting influenced by other energies around us which cloud our energies. Maybe, then, we end up with several mental issues because we have given in to the decision of others. But that is not YOU. That is not YOUR inner core. Therefore, it is important to understand whether others create who you are or YOU create who you are.

I have realized how many little things we take for granted. Is there a guarantee we will wake up the next morning? Do we know for sure that our day is going to unfold as planned? Are we sure that the domestic staff will turn up tomorrow? Is it possible that you have an urgent meeting and the vehicle stops half way? To mention just a few.

Gratitude, therefore, is most important. The person who cleans your restrooms and your home. The one who drives your car, cooks your food. A friend who sits up with you when you are sick. Anyone passing you on the road who smiles at you or saves you from a near accident. Or blesses you without even knowing you….

The bottom line is, NO ONE HAS TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOU…and if they do it, regardless of their motives, we have to thank them as messengers of God. The universe works relentlessly and lovingly. We need to understand the significance and read the language minute to minute.

Destiny


Sometimes, when there is no moon, even the tide goes into depression and ebbs away…life also ebbs away slowly, inch by inch. Ultimately, you are face to face with your God. And you both know the truth of your life. Life after life, only the Divine and your soul are players. Destiny leads always. If Jesus Christ could be crucified, what can we say of lesser beings? The world is a stage for many dramas unfolding…and the more involved you get, the more miserable life becomes. Play your character to the hilt as per your conscience. Don’t expect anyone to know or empathize with your story. After all, they are also birds of passage. What and who do you think you can hold onto?

Honesty


In Hindi, there is a saying, “jhooth ki umar bahut chhoti hoti hai”. And I have seen this coming true around me. Growing up, lying used to be tantamount to a small crime in my parents’ home. The philosophy was that if you let small lies pass, they may turn into bigger ones later.

 Today, no one lies. It is called diplomacy. You just say what the other person wants to hear. Never mind if it is not the truth. Truth is trivial if it causes conflicts. Who wants to hear it? And this is how one builds up relationships.

 The opacity that has set in because of such attitudes has gone a long way in corroding the fabric of transparency and honesty. I don’t know how one can justify these patterns in society if one wants to genuinely change the social order.

Valuing


Valuing those around you! Very important! Appreciating is a form of valuing someone. It speaks of our own confidence, generosity and openness of the heart chakra. Culturally, we see groups who are very insecure and more envious of others than appreciative. The psychology is, “I am not going to give him or her satisfaction of feeling important.” Here, we can totally see the high levels of low self esteem working.

Friends, examine your thoughts and understand that if you are feeling threatened enough by someone, you will unconsciously or deliberately react negatively with that person.

 In our journey of evolution, we have to watch ourselves very carefully and work towards regaining the realization of our true selves so that we can accept that others, too, are as unique as us and their uniqueness does not take away anything from ours…ever!

Destined! I used to believe for a long time that we can do ANYTHING we want to. Life proved otherwise. But with a corollary not everything we want can be achieved. But when that understanding dawns and we are able to accept and let go of that desire, miraculously, other opportunities begin to shine before us. And those often are what our inner calling is. 

The question is, at what stage do we become sensitive to this awareness?
And how do we remain untainted by the pollution of our desires which may not be in sync with what the Universe has chosen for us? It is very possible if we learn to understand the symbolic language in which the Universe speaks
to us.

Many of us have had the experience that during a questioning phase, you open a book and suddenly, your answer is there. Or, someone around you will say something which is just the reply you are looking for. This is the supporting language of the Universe. If you go deeper and start observing everything with a microscopic awareness, each minute will become very profound in its information and knowledge.

The important three C’s…..

Cleanliness, Compassion and Commitment.

Amazing that cleanliness outside means we are clean inside. That’s why clutter in homes is indicative of cluttered minds.

Compassion reaches out to others only when it understands and mirrors compassion for the self. Forgiveness, therefore, comes easier to compassionate people.

Commitment is a huge one. I have seen way too many people not fulfilling their commitments or going back on the spoken word. This is somewhere deep down an indication of a lack of commitment to the self. This is hard to measure in terms of worldly acquisitions. You might be committed to acquiring wealth, for example. But you may not be committed to the means of acquiring it. You may not value your own promises. Or maybe, temporary commitment is done only for personal gains and withdrawn later. Who knows?

There are many layers shrouding truth and reality. There is never a better time than now to start removing them even if it is painful to do so.
