The Divine has been called “Bhaavateet “, meaning beyond this world, beyond the emotions, beyond the transient. If we think for a minute that the Divine symbolizes a set of qualities to be lived, then the human can also aspire to be the Divine energy; Just as “guru” has been described as a “tattva” or substance, a guiding energy which we can elevate ourselves to.

Nothing is beyond us , except what our constant tendency to doubt makes happen. But of course, it takes a lot of pain to even start on that path of slowly healing away the illusory layers from our mind. How many lives are we living in an illusion, thinking there is no one to beat us in wisdom. What wisdom is this? And how have we acquired it and how MUCH, to say with so much confidence that we speak from wisdom? It could also be our ignorance to think we are wise in the first place.

So, how much churning has to happen within us, so that the pollution is cleared and the truth shines, simple and pure. Until then, and if we ever reach that state, we can continue with our illusions.

On a scale of 0 to 10, how much are you driven by fear of losing the people you love? We all need to really think about this because much of our life IS ruled by this fear.

The thought of being rejected or shunned torments and transforms into depression in many cases. And then, you can ask for references of names of psychologists/ psychiatrists / healers to tackle your depression.

First of all, fear itself is avoidable. What can be the value of fear between two people who are close? Only desperation to remain close can trigger fear. The insecurity can trigger fear.

To make people indispensable in your life can be a source of fear. They can rule your heart by all means. Love does not need reciprocity. You love because you love. It is your choice and no one can take it away. But if people you love choose to leave or create a distance, you should still be able to love them and pray for their happiness. Love is not a trade off although this is the way it works in this world.

You scratch my back and I scratch yours, and let us both bleed to death in the name of love, curtain close applause. Now, let us go home. This is the world we live in.

Om is a very powerful chant which brings all the universal energies together to heal and elevate. Without full knowledge, people give it a connotation of religion. But actually, that is ignorance.

Try chanting Om with feeling and you can visibly notice the calmness gradually settling within you. All stress disappears and so does your thinking mind. The deeper you go, the more blissful you feel.

Chanting Om regularly is known to bring about positive bodily changes as in , rejuvenating the cells of the body also.

Om or Aum denotes the cycle of life as in creation, preservation and destruction, only for a new cycle to begin again. We can see this as thesis, anti thesis and synthesis, the famous theory of Hegel.

Try chanting during early morning hours or even at bedtime to experience the wonderful therapy that is Om chanting.

Loyalty


The whole world with a few exceptions is involved in a race for money, name and fame. And yet, ask them if they are happy. You can show off your opulence, your power to the world AND have many people in awe of you, even eager to befriend you. But you know they are not the right ones. In fact, it is really lonely at the top. You get insecure, don’t know who to trust, start using people to multiply your money and power and needless to say, people won’t do it for the love of you. And you can’t buy love or respect. You lose sleep trying just to sustain your room at the top.

I am sure people feel good when they are chased and admired and clamor for one photograph with them. The feeling however, is hollow. There are empty places within where you will never allow people. At best, loyalty from them may be bought by you and again lasts only till you keep filled on the pockets. Despite possessing much, you know you are not wanted for yourself but for your worldly possessions.

People who run after you for what you have will run away from you the day you don’t have it. What remains intact and fills up the void and makes you really rich are love of family, goodness and charitable attitude towards each other, mutual respect.

Attitude of gratitude, forgiving and forgetting, kindness, and empathy in fact, humanity, humaneness which is the only religion that will work and these are not buyable.

The rich are those who are gifted with THESE qualities. And certainly, these cannot be bought. Either you have them or you don’t. And if you want them, you can’t buy them. So, here we are….

The more successful and sought after you become, the more humble you must be. This is called “digesting” your success. With this comes congeniality and genuine praise from people.

It’s like a beautiful person who is completely unaware of her beauty. She is loved for being just herself. When arrogance sets in, even a beautiful or successful person begins to seem unattractive and often, starts to lose friendships both inside and outside the family. Losing sight of the niceness of those around you and whatever they have sacrificed or done for you is a trait that comes in with the ego that develops with success. Do not succumb because soon, even your success will begin to feel a little hollow.

This is the mantra for living. Be humble, because anything can be taken away: success, beauty, anything. What remains with you is you humility, genuineness and consideration for others. It is not everyone that can remain with feet on the ground whatever status they acquire. Absolutely essential to introspect and mend your ways, as you leave others to mend theirs.

A tree laden with fruits bends its branches more than one that does not bear fruit. So, with success should come the humility.

Kindness is not an oft seen virtue, especially among equals. Doling out charity is not necessarily seen as kindness. There could be other motives. There is real merit in reaching a stage where kindness can be meted out because it becomes your intrinsic nature. When you can actually look at people and not worry about whom they are because you have understood who YOU are. Reach that state and very little matters.

It is a pity we don’t make a special effort to find pointers to solutions within ourselves. Others can help you only to an extent. No one knows your story the way you do. And the Universe does. And it also helps when you start to engage with it.

Small instances about intentions working! We were standing in front of an immigration desk, awaiting our turn. The man behind the desk was angry and had sent out one lady rudely for some mistake made. We were wishing we were in another line but it was too late.

And lo and behold! Just before our turn came, the man got up and was replaced by a pleasant woman. And we were through like a shot.

Many such experiences later, I have concluded that self help is complete help and always works if you are in sync with the purity of your intention and surrender before asking for help.
