There are wonderful people all over the world. You meet them at various points in your life and they become a source of joy. You don’t look for wealth in people. It is the love and caring that even money cannot buy, that makes life beautiful. Imagine how much beauty you miss if you only connect with people when you need them for your benefit.

Upbringing, grace, natural inner beauty are the shining ingredients in humans. Living for yourself is nothing great. When your being responds to those you love, you actually justify your birth as a human being. Because human beings are the highest intelligence on earth. And also have been gifted with a heart.

There are two major planes of awareness necessary in life. One, that I am a soul, not the body. And if I am in my body consciousness, I am in my ego state. Somewhere, that ego is going to try and create negativity and block the channels of communication with the Divine.

The importance of affirmations has become huge only to cleanse the blocks which lodge within our cells. Keep superimposing the positive over the negative and finally, replace the negative with the positive. It is possible to cleanse the memories which we should not store and which disturb us. Unknowingly, we have abused ourselves in many ways. It is time to become aware, zero in on those grey areas and treat them once and for all.

Sometimes, we make observations like, he or she talks too much. There are many reasons why there are some people who feel the need to talk… to fill in the long silences between people, awkward silences of discomfort. Some people try and fill up these silences to keep conversation going.

On the flip side, there are those who will just look at you but not speak. No reaction comes forth, as I mentioned this leading to the awkwardness. The psychology of the silent ones runs deep and can vary from insecurity to low self esteem to fear of saying the wrong thing; Even the fear of ostracisation self abnegation.

The good news is, public behavior and conversation is a learnt art. You can actually change your current personality to incorporate techniques which will put you in a safe zone, and, in fact, make you a confident and happy conversationalist.

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.

Philosophy


Isn’t it amazing how big a capacity we have to focus on petty matters, disregarding the bigger picture? We have a tendency to pick on the most unimportant matters. Mostly because it doesn’t suit us to acknowledge that we ARE able to see it but don’t want to some trivial ego issue that we build up and magnify in our heads so often.

And yet, we are the same people who spout philosophy and the meaninglessness of life during commiserations over bereavement. Next day, we are back to our old ways without a thought about that philosophy which we had discovered just yesterday. Sigh! Such are the ways of our species.

Challenges


Every age has its challenges. As kids as teenagers as adults in various phases of growth, mental, emotional and spiritual; the one benchmark of maturity is becoming non judgmental. And this means truly so, not just superficially so as not to displease.

Actually, to be judgmental really means that we need to look at what others are mirroring in us. Why do I need to judge anyone at all? Because there are similar memories that trigger in us; if there weren’t those memories, we would not find it in our hearts to judge.

It is also a matter of feeling holier than thou feeling superior. That is a game that the ego plays. We don’t need to play into its hands. We are fine being our own selves, with our own journey and our own challenges, learning, unlearning and relearning constantly and continuously along the way.

It is very easy to slip into an inertia mode if things don’t work out as you want in life, specially over a long period of time. When disappointments keep happening and hope ebbs away slowly and steadily. And ” what’s the point” becomes your theme song. And then, if you are able to pull yourself up and out of THIS frame of mind, you are truly admirable in spirit.

This is not to sit in judgement over those who find it difficult to overcome this situation. It takes a Herculean effort .

I feel that just as we look upon “annadaan”or feeding the needy as a divine service, bringing people out of their depressions is a major service. Suicides are a result of such hopeless depressions. Life is a gift but unfortunately, does not register as one to those afflicted with deep hopelessness.

If every member of a family understands the importance of this, and that if sharing and caring, this stage of depression can be averted. God’s work, for sure. And this also applies to caring for orphans and those who have strayed out of anger and frustration with life.
