One should really learn to appreciate the souls around us. In times of crisis, help comes through unexpected quarters and through close bonds. God loves energy being channeled. It is so amazing to feel that. And when problems come, solutions are found and things are sorted.

It is awareness, openness to the Divine energy that works. And you attract good people in your life. Yes, karmic blocks are inevitable. Some curses do work but can be transcended through triggering the Divine will and illumination.

Very casually, we ask God for Wisdom, as if it is there for the asking. Maybe, it IS, but not without human effort. What is a prerequisite to wisdom is discernment, or, shall we say, they kind of go together and one adorns the other.

To be discerning is to be measured, to be aware of how much if head and how much of heart, how much of senses, how much of emotion would make the right recipe for any particular occasion. And when this gut feeling is finally right, then the result may be right for all concerned and that would be wisdom.

We humans are frivolous many a time, impulsive, too. Doing things without enough thought and introspection, often lands us in deep and muddy waters. So, refrain!

Actually, harmony has a way of feeling like a flowing river inside us. In every experience, if we can keep our core unshaken, a “samabhaava”, that is pure wisdom.

Someone said the other day, and many others say it too, that there should always be a balance of heart and head. Using only the heart doesn’t work and neither does using only the brain. The former results in much pain and being taken for granted and the latter might make you hard and calculating.

But, to complicate matters a bit, there are changing proportions on a daily basis. How much of each would make for a working balance. And therein lies the catch.

The heart is automatically made synonymous with goodness. And the brain with logic, intelligence often moving down the grid to being calculative, many perspectives and several ways of looking at this.

However, the underlying truth is that both must be used.

The problem with us humans is that we have become so pretentious and insincere that we fail to recognize sincerity or genuineness when we see it.

Some memories of old relationships exist in all our hearts, I am sure. And if they are valuable, we tend to go back in time to connect with the same people. Only to find that, in some cases, there is either a lot of rancor or they have moved on.

Those that have really moved on will be civil or even friendly. But those that have kept grouses for years will be sometimes offensive and sometimes, avoid you.

In the larger perspective, any soul that has a meaning or has had a meaning in your life is definitely a part of your soul group that promised to be a part of your life. What fails is our inability to see that people might be distanced but the love remains, often in the form of anger or hate because what they wanted did not happen.

That is the truth of life. Destiny plays a large role and people get separated because of many reasons, mainly past lives and past karma. But in our anger, we don’t see the larger canvas. If we did, we would reinstate people in our lives more consciously and willingly.

Many of us either don’t learn from our mistakes or don’t really care; Just blundering through life with a lack of awareness. Like a child that refuses to learn. I wonder what makes some of us like that.

They say new souks are somewhat like this because they lack memories of the experience of old souls. Makes sense to me. A new soul would be childlike for sure; adventurous, loving, aggressive and rising with every fall; until life happens and reactions to good and bad memories take over thoughts and action.

We don’t even realize how much creatures of our past we are. How predictable our actions could be for someone who has seen us evolve.

If you see people with lower back aches, they are storing memories which need to heal. They would be older souls because they have so much to store.

The task of cleansing these memories forms a large part of the reasons of our many births.

If life can be described as per my perception of reality, it is a whole lot of phases, of dots that get connected as you look back. There are periods of transition that come in response to the saturation of one phase. Something works for a period of time and then they don’t work too well and this is a time for change. And so the process goes on.

But this is not to say there is no connection. There are links between the phases, or you would not be able to join the dots later in life. As we mature, we can look back and start understanding what happened back there. Not that one should live with guilt and bitterness. Could it have been better? Sure, if YOU knew better! But you didn’t. So, what happened?

Many a time, I hear friends talk with great guilt after the bereavement of a parent, about not doing their best. “I could have done better, contacted a better doctor, and been more vigilant”. Could you really have? And they carry this burden on an unrecognizable persona: THEM. To what end?

This can be only the result of feeling out of control. But then, we ARE out of control with destiny. It unfolds the way it must and we start imagining that we could have changed it. Yes, but did you? Could you? What does this say to you? Even if it had changed the way you wanted, actually, it was meant to. That’s all. Where do you come in? You just try your best. I have to use the cliche “leave it to God”.

We speak of the law of attraction, as if it works for all of us. If it were that easy, every human being would want to attain the earth for eternity. So to say, if everyone could take ladder leaps from the first to the 10th step, why would the ladder have the in between steps at all?

Let’s get real.

Being true to ourselves! How many of us can honestly claim this about ourselves? This in current times is the singularly hardest thing to do. Because the consequences of this we humans cannot take.

We are constantly saying and doing things for the wrong reasons either to be accepted. Or not be isolated or for being popular. Could we ever have the courage to be true to ourselves? Yes, it requires lots of courage, to be different. To stand out among a group that encourages herd mentality. To face even dislike, criticism, ostracisation even, if I were to state extremities.

If I feel something, can I say it? If I am being compelled to be someone else, would I refuse? Be ABLE to refuse? Would I risk the wrath of the people who give me my identity?

Yes, it does take a large amount of courage and a large slice of confidence to go it alone, for it sometimes would mean the falling away of many who aren’t able to do the same and would therefore, not feel too good about themselves if they were in your company.

But, be true to yourself anyway.
