I find the reason why most of us are not always balanced in head and heart is, the heart combines with our attachment and feelings, not letting in enough intellect. After all, we feel we can’t love with our head. The heart is the Known organ of love.

But this does not work out well in practice many a time. Somewhere, in our love come the ideas, of space. And that is the intellect speaking. We can energetically cross over easily to the other people and invade their energy space. And then that love is no longer love but a bit of an obsession which we don’t always realize. But the people in question feel it, rightly or wrongly.

The solution is to refrain from extremities of emotions, in fact, any extremities. And painful as it may be because of your genuine feeling of love, one must withdraw into our own space until better times prevail.

The heart gets weary for sure, trying to understand people, their actions, situations, in fact, everything but oneself. Until one day, you don’t want to understand anything anymore. After all, all the whys can take you on the merry go round until vertigo strikes you. And by the time you feel you have understood somewhat, things change again.

The futility of understanding! Rocks your world knocks you down and you gain little! And suffer a lot! Yes, the heart does get very weary. That’s probably why people just live on the surface.

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.

That prayers bring results is really to be experienced because it is a fact. Genuine and pure intention is a brownie point in our favour. What we call genuine surrender just seems to bring a new hope, a new kind of calm and peace. These are not permanent though, and one requires a daily cleansing through prayer.

We are all past masters at desiring instant success in everything. But that’s not how it works. Consistency of purity and prayer cannot fail. What fails or falters is our faith.

When we think negative, we tend to think and see the worst in everything. We also tend to be more pessimistic during such phases. It can turn into a vicious cycle of thinking the worst, losing hope and again, thinking the worst because we lose hope. This pattern goes into a loop.

But I have also seen such patterns replaced by some very remarkable positive ones. The trick is to always visualize a candle in the darkness. And that flame can expand and expand until there is no darkness. After all, darkness is just an absence of light, isn’t it?

The power of thought and of constant positive visualization is irreplaceable. If only humans knew how to channelize their higher self which is a powerhouse?

Probability


Sometimes, we reach a deadlock within ourselves. Which way to go? What to do? These are times when probably we don’t want to do a trade off to make choice. We want it all.

I think it would be great at such times, as someone said, to write a letter to your future self. Great idea! To visualize your future self and then make choices, how do I want to be in future? What kind of a person? Accordingly, you make your decisions today. There is less probability of going wrong. And we will learn to take corrective measures more easily.

At some stage, you realize that life is to be lived like a game. That’s why they say, sports builds up character. This now winning no, now losing syndrome has to bring in the ability to take both in your stride. Isn’t it?

And that’s what we go through in life, now being successful and now, not much. As a young girl, I asked Mr. Vijay Merchant to write in my autograph book. And he wrote:

“It is not about how you win or lose

It is how you play the game”.

And this always stayed in my mind. Truly, it is how each one of us chooses to conduct our lives that are the single most important thing. There may have been several pitfalls looking back, but you also see how you handled those and how much you learnt along the way and how far you have come. And nothing is a waste of time. Life is the largest educational Institution. You can give exams as many times as you want but hopefully, each time, the preparation will be better and better.
