There will always be this issue of acceptance from and by people. We must necessarily be controlled and circumspect, though we might be pining to be free like a bird and do exactly as we please.

The need of being accepted stems from the human angle only, because of dependency on each other, as the famous saying goes: no man is an island. So, we follow rules. Allow our hearts to sing but keep a befitting exterior. Allow our anger to kill someone in our thoughts but smile and shake hands. Have several issues within but on being asked if we are okay, pat comes the reply,” no problem”.

In a way, we are all split personalities, always living more than one role, within and without. And even those change into multiple roles depending on situations.

Mind and happiness


To wash away the impact of karma, one must necessarily dwell on the plausible reasons for the state of the mind. We don’t realize that we have many people inside us, not only our own energies from other lives but our memories of every age we have crossed in this life and many of them needing healing.

Healing is not such a complicated task if we can even just give rational thought to why things are the way they are. “Could be” has many vital possibilities that can relieve us a great deal when memories are relived and re scripted.

That we could have thought, spoken or acted differently is always a later realization. But we need not kill ourselves over such thoughts. Even if we had done things differently, who knows the final outcome?

It is therefore wise to lighten our burdens everyday and treat ourselves with kindness and compassion, because we can give genuine caring to ourselves and put our arms around ourselves instead of waiting for someone else to influence the condition of our mind and happiness.

Truth


There was a time when truth prevailed more often than not. Today, the rumourmongers and mischief makers, inspired and encouraged by vested interests have spread such a wide net of falsehoods , misinterpretations and misrepresentation of facts and reality that people are in a state of utter confusion. What to believe and what not.

Money exchanges hands and “ facts” are born / created. We have all become storytellers. There are many twists in every tale , reality being a huge casualty. But who cares !! People want to believe what appeals to them, not what is the truth. So, everyone watches the “Tamasha” while reality quietly sits in a corner , ignored and rejected.

Universal energy


Sometimes, we get disappointed with people who present a pleasant exterior most times. It is probably true of everyone at one time or another.

You are suddenly and often taken unawares by the outbursts of the actual fires burning inside someone.

One if the greatest frustrations within people are the eagerness to win in life … all the time. Whether in gambling or in a word slinging match, people have a deep craving to win. This burning can eat away your insides if you are not careful.

We really need an inner fire extinguisher for the sake of our mental and emotional health or we can get into deep trouble.

Some rules to douse fires:

  1. Never misunderstand when you can understand.
  2. There will always be someone more successful and someone less successful than you. Learn to be content.
  3. You can never go wrong if you follow some basic but important values that you were taught, growing up.
  4. Earn respect for yourself in your own eyes first.
  5. Love is a universal energy which we need to share much more than we do.
  6. Clean up your own mess first.
  7. Forgive yourself and then others.
  8. Be simple
  9. Let your own choices dictate your life
  10. Live life as if you own it all but passes on as if nothing was ever yours.

Cheers!

It is a fact that mental and physical blocked energy manifests in the body. Similarly, any intense emotions like hatred or jealousy also manifest in retaliatory or aggressive reactions. It is almost impossible to camouflage these. They show up. And sometimes in the vehemence that comes your way. Or in a look or body language even.

But as is again a known fact, these reactions harm only the ones who harbor them, Such a self destructive exercise; But very difficult to explain this until they have their own experience.

It takes a lot to peel off the layers of our own emotional skin and reduce its thickness bit by bit. There is much microscopic study required on ourselves, because thoughts and reactions come with lightening speed. So much so that there really should not be time to study others before ourselves; A humungous task for those that have sensitized themselves enough so as to feel the transformation of energy. But there is no time like the present moment to start.

Getting disturbed by anything that we don’t like and is actually happening is human nature. But everything we react negatively to is not bad for us. In fact, some of it is good for us. For example, if you are in a painful, unhappy relationship and it breaks naturally, it is, in fact, a release.

Conscious thinking keeps us abreast of such happenings and gives us the correct perspective and enables us to take a dispassionate view of every thought and happening. Conscious thought leads to conscious behavior which is more balanced than behavior dictated by the ego and defiance.

So, we look at the eye of the storm and then use our wisdom to determine its outcome that is relevant in our lives. And we will find that when storms blow over, often there is relief and peace in our lives. Every storm doesn’t have to leave us devastated.

Silence


Sometimes, silence is the best policy. It is a mistake to think we can explain ourselves and the opposite person will understand. Also, talking about the universal phenomena, of solutions to issues, of sharing wisdom, or any love for that matter, may not be acceptable. Silence distances you from everything and works on your own peace and evolution where speaking creates conflicts. The choice is easy. But to arrive at it is difficult.
