Attitude


Someone asked me, why is there so much turbulence in life ? I thought .. hmmm.. Do we call it turbulence due to our responses to the unfolding of our karma ? Our perspective ? I always wonder ! Because i see some people calm in the face of storms while some get blown away.

A matter of attitude ? Maybe, a very strong core , an unshakeable faith in the Divine ? Maybe, an internalisation of the ultimate truth after which life becomes like a child’s play. So easy and so breezy !

… and much turbulence in the absence of some or all of the above ?

In any case, turbulence was never the desired intention ever for anyone. Yet, it was allowed by each one of us … as , who else is within us but we ourselves ?

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.

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.

Acceptance


I have found that things just happen even if you don’t interfere with your personal desires and efforts. Something will happen in your life. But people are not willing to take this for an answer. “But what about what I want ? And what if things don’t happen that way ?”

We tend to push away things that might have happened had we let them happen. Just by looking the other way.

The soul is here to interact with this world for the relevant experiences. So often, we say, “my heart is not in it anymore “. But after so many years of pursuing an activity ? Why now ? Because the soul is satisfied and wants to move on but we don’t want to let go. To make our peace with the fact that something is over and something else is coming up that we need to go through. The cognisance is lacking when the soul connection is weak. So, the answer is :

Accept. Accept. Accept. Don’t expect , expect and keep on expecting. Believe me, some amazing things start to happen at that stage if acceptance because acceptance is a way of surrendering.

Reinventing you frequently! Life doles out all kinds of experiences. If we get stuck like the pin on the record, life becomes difficult and often, unbearable. I always ask my clients why they would compromise on a quality of life that is in their hands completely. You don’t necessarily have to cry your way through life Regrets, Bitterness and Lost opportunities. These are huge for sure. But having said that, what next?

I feel we want to vent and get sympathy but are not prepared to make changes, yes, and often drastic ones. Venting makes you feel better probably but nothing changes.

Examining established patterns is the first step towards changing them. Dragging behind those that don’t work is not a mark of intelligence.

Letting go is the only way to spiritual upliftment that is, if one is looking for it, letting go of any sentiments of attachment which become bondage. People generally misunderstand this as letting go of caring and compassion. Anything that ties you down is not really healthy either a relationship or a city or people who depend on your energy to feel good.

This awareness is extremely important. When the weaker ones feed on your energy, it debilitates you. And you become ineffective for your own forward movement and are also unable to help others in the bargain.

This is likely to happen when, in a relationship, one move on and the other needs to hang on. The auras don’t match and there is an issue, a conflict of sorts. We live day to day with many such situations but don’t know how to read these situations correctly; In terms of the changing equations of energies. Once we know what is happening, we will be able to take proactive steps to prevent reoccurrences of such episodes in our lives.

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!
