Talent


Conforming is a talent I have not seen much of. It seems people find it difficult to fall in line as it were. You make a rule and you can be sure it will be broken more than once. The mind is unable to remember with consistency. Alternatively, it may not be taken seriously at all. Amazes me sometimes ! How can one repeat the same mistake again and again ?

In school, we had to conform. In certain homes, children have to conform. But as adults, we don’t think it is necessary to conform. In short, it spells a lack of respect for any rules made by others. Too much of individual assertions without understanding the importance of being able to conform when required. Another yardstick of balance.

Really speaking, more and more I realise that harmony is within . Being a singer, I notice that when I sing a raga of “gambhir prakriti ” or in other words, of a serious nature, the mind calms down and you get transported onto another level. As if you are floating. And there is peace and nothing matters.

We actually let the world come in to disturb us. We are the ones who open the door indiscriminately. Why ? Because our desires don’t leave us. We are not strong enough to tell them they are not needed in our life. And that life will happen anyways. If we let it flow through us.

The more spiritual exercises you do daily, the more the clarity will come.

It’s a world of vibrations. We make our destinies as we live a life of higher or lower vibrations. In every aspect, you will see the higher vibration taking over. In the Universe, there is a higher intelligence existing somewhere and maybe a higher one than that somewhere else. Our Universe is not the only Universe that exists in Creation.

Just as a powerful nation is able to dictate to or take over a less powerful one, so can the human species be taken over by a much higher power one day. And there may come a time when the human race itself may become extinct, especially if it keeps sinking into lower and lower vibration frequencies.

We have much to be vigilant about but I don’t think we have reached anywhere close to the vigilance levels we need to understand the seriousness of our existence today.

Large heartedness is always the way to go. Humans are, by virtue of being a part of the Divine energy and hence, spiritual beings, are naturally expansive. This intrinsic quality must be retained to lead a higher quality of existence.

Ultimately, the micro IS the macro. But small mindedness is not productive. It is not natural. Servicing our needs which have already been built into the cosmic plan is therefore, is counterproductive. What we service is our wants, not our needs. And that’s where the difference is not recognized.

You will notice that the moments of the greatest happiness are always when you have extended yourself beyond yourself to others; Maybe, charity or a kind listening ear, “annadaan”, imparting education, and the like, even loving selflessly.

The day we recognize this, we will be well on our way to a truly happy state of being.

When we talk of memory, we perhaps refer to the mind in general. The soul memory actually gets transferred from one lifetime to another and is stored as cellular memory. If the memories are painful , they will manifest in the body sooner or later if something is not done to take away the pain . It is like a thorn in your foot which , if deep, gets septic and the pain radiates well beyond the location of the thorn .

It seems like a Herculean task if not an impossible one, to heal the cells by healing the memories. Because emotional pain also radiates out as compounded pain with one major negative emotion finding allied emotions joining in. Like, anger brings frustration and often , hopelessness with it.

One beautiful method is through breath. Breathing exercises are vital to health. Otherwise lungs can get effectively choked due to intense emotions. They can’t breathe in life under these conditions.

So, it pays to remember each time we practice negativity, where the memories are going to be stored and how important it is to clean up the toxicity before it attacks the mind body complex.

Happiness means so many different things to different people. But ignorance is often the greatest bliss factor. And to ignore is also a great bliss at the best and the worst of times.

Imagine, if you never had any recognition of who liked you and who didn’t, or just chose to ignore it all, how wonderful it would be! Or that you never thought of who YOUR favorite was and who not!! Happiness!!! To swim through life mindless of who or what or when and why…..Bliss!

It is human nature to dwell on hurt more than happiness. Both words start with “H” but they are poles apart in their emotional content and precisely because we can’t find enough energy to feel complete. “They” can only affect you if YOU let them, because YOU don’t understand that YOU give them power over you.

We find it very difficult to say “no” in general. We compromise, get dragged and pulled and pushed on account of playing different roles and for the sake of other people. This inevitably goes against our grain and gradually, to resentment and a kind of anger which snowballs into inadequacy and complexes. And the next thing you know is, you start letting others upset you because are upset already. You start attracting people who upset you and comments that throw you over the edge.

But for how long and more important and at what cost? You can learn to say NO to hurt, to being hurt. For some, baiting is a game they play to feel superior by getting that extra power from those who are vulnerable. And the vulnerable get hurt instead of smiling it away, as simple as that.

Say NO to hurt and people will not affect you anymore.
