Each day, we create our reality with our thoughts. We really don’t realize what power thoughts have. We are not in command or in charge of ourselves to see this even. We happily go around creating a web of negativity around us and getting stuck in its reality. Negative produces more negative. Our inner reality is our outer reality. No two ways about that.

So, better be careful what we think or wish for. What really works is love and blessings, unconditionally.

The depth of gratitude is not felt by many the need for gratitude, even less sometimes. Also much is taken for granted. Like a female Spouse, who just is expected to do certain things at home? It is very rare that she is thanked.

Similarly, if you start writing down all that you and I have to be thankful for, you will be surprised how many items come up on the list. From the life we have to everything that we enjoy but never appreciate.

A daily prayer and an attitude of gratitude go a very long way in keeping us cleansed and happy.

I believe in pure intention and connectivity as being two factors that can transform anything from negative to positive. That we are connected with everything and everyone in this Universe is a fact: a conviction if you have that level of awareness to have experienced this. It is also a fact that thought is a prime energy and therefore, pure intention the thought form that raises your vibrations to a higher level to actually connect with the Divine energy that makes everything manifest. How beautiful is that!

This way, we are also connected to knowledge that lies within us but through academics and through life experiences, is just triggered in this current life and manifests into our conscious mind. Like, for example, a city you have apparently not visited before but seem familiar for no reason at all.

Our soul has lived many lives and memories of places, people, Events, reactions, responses are all stored deep within. Like you open a box to take what is within, the box of memories is waiting to be opened, scrutinized and healed wherever required. And we can all do these ourselves. It depends on the vibration levels we are able to achieve. Like a fast spinning top that does not allow any dust to settle on it.

Come to think of it, we don’t offer gratitude often enough. We are not aware enough that the burning heat of life does not touch us in extremes. Yes, there are challenges for all of us. But, many of us tend to over amplify those challenges and make a huge deal without realizing that there are worse case scenarios around us , the kind we would not be able to tolerate even , just because we have not really been burnt to experience the difference .

We have kind of escaped the areas that the mines have been laid out or have lucked out in not entering those areas. And what you don’t experience ever becomes a memory to learn from.

Somewhere along the way, each time we forgot to say “thank you” to the Universe, we lost a little bit of our energy. And each time we are filled with gratitude, we are transported to a higher plane where there is happiness and joy. They are generated from within and so, also, remain with us over a long period of time.

There comes a time when you are absolutely saturated by all that goes around . Which you were a part of earlier in life. But somewhere along the way, the falseness, the meaninglessness of all conflict, all separatist tendencies, all pettiness, all self absorption, all cruelty , sadism, merciless killing and destruction… becomes so over the top that the mind just wants to switch off. And words fail.

Finally , this time, silence dawns . There is just no speech that can describe any of it.No opinions need be given. No judgemental statements may be spouted. Everything is just an ego battle. What’s the point ?

Silence is the best policy. Watch the world go by. Remain sane by stepping aside.

I have been discussing with my group about how marriages fall apart “suddenly” after 25 years and more. And I do believe that nothing happens suddenly. It is generally a long road fraught with many incompatibilities and underlying stress which is not spoken about by one or the other spouse to keep the peace in the house. One, big reason!

I think that under the obvious pattern of bitterness and blame lies a need for understanding why the distancing happens. We don’t even know when and how it starts; with a minor argument escalating into a minor war or small misunderstandings or a lack of friendship. Too much tendency to control; not enough respect? Trying to change each other; each trying to prevail over the other? Or simply not the marrying kind but forced to marry to please parents.

I feel a little disgusted when I hear parents telling their son to go ahead and be a man. In short, have a good time as long as you return to your wife. I asked one such mother, “suppose the woman you encouraged your son to philander with was YOUR daughter? The answer was so predictable. Aha! As long as it is not your daughter; doesn’t matter that the other girls are also someone’s daughters.

I know it is an old fashioned concept in the promiscuous society today. What I mean is, it is the moms who actually encourage their sons into these habits many a time.

But, coming back to breaking relationships, the now terribly obsolete theory of marriages surviving because of kids binding their parents together is more or less nonexistent.

Such sentiments have gone, never to return. Trying to put parents together is a counselor’s job. And going to a therapist is a social stigma, not to be spoken about. Many times, the husband doesn’t think HE needs it. Exactly like he doesn’t want to see a doctor when they only have daughters because it is always the woman’s fault that it is so yet; one more reason for a marriage in trouble.

And many of the reasons I have mentioned create a chain and relationships fray and fray and fray, until something just snaps one day. We call it “sudden” but is it really so sudden?

This is exactly like saying cancer happened overnight. No. It just showed up as a body manifestation overnight. It was building up for years like the lava of an active volcano.

Much introspection needed. Much conscious thought needed. Much maturity and intelligence needed.

Setting examples! The common belief is that parents and elders should set examples to their children to follow. From generation to generation, this hasn’t changed. And while that is true, many parents have to also face a lot of flak and criticism for not coming up to the mark by setting adequate examples worthy of being emulated.

In all of this, I often wonder! Are we setting good examples for ourselves first? Or is it that counseling and advising others on how to live life is easier? For sure, in most cases.

So, how do I appear to me be the moot questioned because it is only that perception which can be changed if we don’t look good to ourselves? We can’t mute that inner voice that speaks to us like we can mute a chat group with a click today.

So, it is most worthwhile to start improving our image in our own eyes and take our own advice, which we generally give others. Be your own example and let others emulate it if they so wish.
