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.

They say extra pure and sensitive souls are loved by God. We also see such souls suffer in this world. Big time. These are definitely old souls who have had many lives, some difficult ones. And those who want to make their own way against what is ordained tend to struggle more.

If something really huge , like a curse, follows you into this life, you can really spend your whole life where love and success will elude you. Where people around you will oppose you. Where you could wonder why this is happening ?

When something happens in repeated patterns, you know apast life has followed you. Makes it a tad easier to understand but not to experience. Because you take wrong decisions. You tend to upset people. You could sometimes isolate yourself. … and so on. The repercussions and results are many.

Some agonised souls may switch off from the world and simply exist. Others may become withdrawn or depressed. To make the most of a life is a very different task for different people.

An action that is respected is that which is performed with grace. Its value is enhanced manifold. As long as there is life, give and take is an inevitable part of it. What is important is that grace is not only in giving but also in taking. There are people who keep giving but refuse to accept. That energy becomes one sided. There are also people who give very condescendingly and from a space of ego driven “charity”. No grace there.

I know someone whose charities came to light after he passed on, to the amazement of his own family. Today, we need to advertise in the papers and media that we donated an x amount to an x charity. No grace there.

Let the giving be between you and God and treat specially those you give to , with utmost kindness and respect , almost as if It is YOUR need to give and not theirs to take, because it is not easy for everyone to accept while being made to feel small.

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.

Unobtrusively, we start to become what our thoughts are made up of. At first, we are taught to think like our parents. We imbibe our environment. Everyday actions we see around us speak of the thoughts that inspired the actions. And we emulate and emulate.

Later, when we see ourselves from the eyes of others, we realize that we must look onwards into our thought patterns which are seen by people in our speech and action. You cannot separate the people from their thoughts.

Depressing thoughts! Thoughts of envy and sadness or happy thoughts, thoughts of love and goodness. Every thought will manifest if given importance.

We foster the thought and then it festers. That’s it! Many such festering thoughts create who we are.

So, think before you think! Meditate on what you think before you give the thoughts the pride of place within your mind, because they may enslave you. And what will that make you? A slave to your thoughts instead of the master who has command over them.

Have you noticed that when you plan and work towards something, there will most certainly be last minute glitches and little, little obstacles coming your way, Sudden changes and sudden diversions. It is uncanny. And this goes on through life. I often ask whether some people go through more and some less. Whether some go through less but more intense experiences or little irritants throughout life?

But then, you have to find justifications to accept that which is beyond control. That is the bottom line. This thought is perhaps a continuation of my earlier thought in a recent post:

That life happens when we are busy planning it according to our desires. However, let us not dwell just on these but on the larger happiness beyond the immediate hurdles that makes life worth living.

I have noticed that complexed people often not only have low self-esteem, they also retreat into themselves and prefer to hold back than brush away their fears and hesitation. You are done if you justify your stand because then, coming out of it is really difficult.

Do you endear yourself to yourself? Odd question, Not at all. In fact, THE right question. Because if you don’t see anything within yourself that endears you to yourself, most likely you won’t feel that you CAN endear yourself to others.

The answer lies in your shaking off the wrong ways of thinking which a body of complexes becomes with you, and approach life and people with simplicity and honesty. Not worth it to become heavy weight with negativity.
