Living with individual consciousness is never enough. We have to learn to live in a collective consciousness too….as parts of a family, society and country. In fact, these are times for being International. The world has shrunk and we need to expand.

There is a fine balance that we struggle to achieve. Some don’t even try. The fact is, we are a sum total of so many unhealed memories that unless we cleanse them, we are not moving forward anytime soon into a significant spiritual space.

So, though we can have affluence, power and control over humans in our physical reality, we still remain insecure and lacking in totality.

Worry, worry, worry! It is the most popular pastime. Sometimes, I think some people thrive on worry. What would they do if they didn’t have something to worry about? 

So, you worry about your children, your job, whether your staff is going to turn up for work the next day, how much influence you have on others, why you are not popular in a group…etc.

From the more serious to the lighter issues, we just like to worry.

Instead, if we start analyzing the reasons and the root causes of every worry, we may see some light at the end of the tunnel. There are tough karmic experiences that many go through, whether happily or unhappily. But underneath that knowledge is a more profound knowledge that of being protected and helped by the Universe provided we are on the wavelength to receive that help.

Depraved or deprived? This is a very basic subject of analysis when we see young and idle minds engaged in activities like rape, violence, anti national activities etc. Are these partially or completely depraved minds? Or, are they pampered and throughly spoilt, depraved minds who have been brainwashed, or completely out of control, or dangerously criminal minds whose spirituality is dead?

Strange, isn’t it that this is the land of sages and the highest levels of spirituality in which the darkest deeds are happening? Sure, it is a world of dualities!

The blame game! We have done it ever since we can remember and still continue with it. I guess it is always easier to blame something else or someone else for the plight we find ourselves in. That “plight” we are in needs attention and analysis.

Once we accept that we make the choices for our lives, all arguments become meaningless. But that is being rational. You will find that people who are strong in energy make choices for themselves which is fine.

But rationality does not always prevail. On the flip side, there are others who are weak in energy, who will blame the earth if they fall, blame the family for a bad marriage and so on… everyone except themselves. Not only are miserable, they also make others around them miserable.

And it is so much depletion of energy all over. If only we learn to accept that we are largely responsible for what transpires in our lives, we can change things around for a total transformation in our lives. Because we can’t change the external environment or people. But we can work at our own attitudes and knowledge. When we are young, we go through conditioning. But as adults, with education, observation and analysis, we should be able to understand the futility of the blame game and the impact of taking responsibility for our lives.

It is lovely sitting around the fire on a cold evening. Just like it is lovely to sit around your children to warm your heart. Good comparison…but fire destroys, too. As a symbolic fire in relationships.

It is sad to see disorientation between new age kids and parents. I wonder why love is not enough. There is much imagery in relationships today…sometimes; children are even ashamed of their parents, their dressing, their behavior, their social etiquette, that they look and talk down to them.

When you get into your late 50’s and 60’s, and see people and loved ones leaving this world one after another, it seems unimaginable that anyone should disregard the value of their near ones . It is not their fault that they were from a different environment, growing up. That they only learnt what they were allowed to learn at that time. That the freedom today was not given then. And many other circumstances due to which they became what they are today.

It is so amazing how we are born in one place but settle somewhere else. Actually, do you know that even land pulls us towards it? We have had several past lives and in the places that we have unfinished business, we also have a tenure of residence or a visit.

You get a deja vous in certain places you visit. I distinctly remember such situations in Rajasthan and in Chittoor in particular and all of us have these memories. Yes, land definitely calls out to us have these memories. Yes, land definitely calls out to us.

Sometimes we exhibit certain traits of the land we have lived in, like a deep interest in certain music or dance or even dressing styles.

Quite fascinating!

Memoirs are what memories create. Some happiness, some tears, some agony. As we grow older, we seem to start dwelling on the past very naturally. I always used to wonder why the older generation talks so much about their past. I guess, when we are younger, there is so much to look forward to. Our energy levels are high and life seems to stretch in front of our line of vision as having many goals to look forward to. Towards the evening of our lives, a saturation point is reached for many people. Some others retire from their workplace because they have to. Some pass on their work to the next generation. Some opt to resign and take life easy after many years of hard work.

For all of these people, there seem to be many experiences in the past to talk about. There is a lot of learning there for those who listen. But, to handle a phase of inactivity or less activity can get very difficult as well. Not everyone can accept this phase graciously.

Our sense of self esteem depends hugely on how occupied we are, and, more important, how this places us in the eyes of the world. When our identity comes from the approval of others, anonymity can be very unsettling. If life can be viewed as a series of phases, it would be easier to accept changes, both within ourselves and the external set of circumstances.

What is really the issue here is that there is little to look forward to. There are no new goals for many. Actually, the world has opened up so many opportunities that we can learn something new every day. Recently, I saw a computer class with seventy year old individuals and I was thrilled! When so many new vistas open up the Mind, and we have the child within us alive and motivated enough to keep learning, the present and future become so exciting that the past ceases to be a compulsive memory and remains dormant within us, to be brought up at will when lessons from it need to be remembered.

The productive use of each present moment is the key to living rather than existing on past memories just because we don’t see anything before us that would adorn our present and future.
