Memories


I marvel at people who just take things for granted. Because what you really take completely for granted is the most fragile. Yes, LIFE!

Is there any guarantee that we will even wake up in the morning? Every day, we hear of sudden health issues, some discovered too late even because, before manifesting, they were festering within.

One would imagine that after witnessing one or two such cases, people would become more sensitive to those around them and aware of the fact that they can be lost to them anytime.

And yet, this awareness is very slow to come in, if at all. It is very essential to spend as much time with each other and build up strong and loving memories to last and transfer to each succeeding generation. We survive only on good memories, and we have to create them ourselves.

I want to urge people who are prone to deep depressions and disappointments in life, that swallowing pills to feel numb is temporary. I agree that certain issues are really difficult to handle.

There comes a time of hopelessness when no solutions come up and we are on the verge if defeat and acceptance of unpalatable truths.

Never mind. Keep faith. Just as seasons must change, so must the inner seasons of the mind. Agreed that we lose patience and cannot determine the exact point at which something snaps within us. Just don’t let it snap. Keep faith.

If we didn’t believe in goodness on earth, how could we survive? Keep faith and wait for the tide to turn. It will, if you keep faith.

The beauty of life’s moments holding your new born child. The first time she calls you”ma”,  the joy of that moment when it would be as joyous as if it was the last word you heard. The warm hugs and the little arms around your neck as you get “spitty “kisses which glisten in your eyes, not your cheeks.

And when this child becomes an adult, she does the same with her kids. The tradition of motherhood continues but she has forgotten that warmth and fuzzy feeling of being held by her mom forgotten that even if a child becomes sixty, she is still the same loveable and huggable kid to her mom.

Ironically, her inner child leaves her while her mom has hung on primarily to those wonderful memories of that little child who, as an adult, has moved into another phase. That’s life. You live with your memories. And live with the fact that life is full of phases. And you must move on. Or life will make you do so.

Once in a while, you come across people who give you the respect of being honest with you. You end up building a solid, enduring relationship with honest people because they generally come with a brand of sincerity as well.

Yes, I say “respect” because people who try and play mind games don’t realize that no one is being fooled. And respect is not being shown for the intelligence people have.

Having seen integrity, sincerity, respect and loyalty to a cause at close quarters, you want to choose to be with such people. They may appear to be disappearing minorities around you but they are valuable in that they come with a high vibration tag and teach you to tune in to these vibrations the true “satsang” of vibrations.

In the beginning, an attempt to detach is very painful. Humans are tied up in the silken threads of “moha” which is attraction to people and things, even to places. Even silken threads spell bondage, though, it may be remembered.

Spiritual orators recommend detachment to obtain peace and to move forward towards a more elevated state of being. Not an easy task ! But when you pray hard enough, and try sincerely, the Universe helps you. Circumstances arise to help you detach slowly, often painfully.

After the stage is reached when the pain lessens, you can start feeling the relief of being liberated. Because in “moha”, YOU hold on so, only you can let go to experience the feeling of freedom from the huge amount of baggage that you had stored baggage because “moha” leads to much suffering. You are actually trying to capture the intangible and the illusory. What then would be the result other than suffering?

Sometimes, the shocks life gives you leave you numb and speechless. But it is silly to react so emotionally. People can be callous and cruel. Are you going to give them more power, more energy by hurting? That would be foolish.

Wisdom lies in choosing when to take anyone seriously. Hopefully, never to take anyone seriously like they say, take it with a pinch of salt. Though why they give salt so much importance, I don’t know may be, because salt retains water in the body and similarly, egos bloat people.

So, take a chill pill and move in life like a free spirit. No encumbrances, especially when it comes to undeserving people around you. Not worth killing yourselves with numbness or shock.

Like my guru said, be a witness. No one belongs to you and you don’t belong to anyone. Nature is unfathomable. It is said that a baby scorpion kills its mother after its birth. Is it a surprise then to see what humans can do?

Education comes with its own brand of confidence often, a little arrogance too. However, every educated person is not enlightened. Enlightenment goes beyond. Its canvas is very large In fact, without any boundaries Limitless.

There is an inner light in the enlightened that goes to the depth of understanding phenomena and concepts as also a natural recourse to the best code of conduct there could be . This is also work in progress while we are alive. That is, if we keep watching ourselves and our process of learning each second.

Yes, education may be different from learning. One is theory and the other practical.

A benevolent thought and acted upon with a positive intention does not fail. Somehow, people do not realize that performing such an act for someone comes back to you in strange ways. It is because the Universe is like an echo. The same quality that you give out is returned to you.

That is why, it is said, the more you give, the more you get and not necessarily from the same place. Just the bonus that you receive is indication enough about the quality of your own deed.

So, never shy away from being generous and never use others for your own ends. Rather, give generously and be satisfied that you have been placed in a position to give.

Living your life with sound principles! Our generation is extremely fortunate that we were imparted these from a very young age. It has given us a strong core and the strength to bear the consequences brought before us. The common parlance is” paying the price” for what happens to us. But the angle of perspective may be looked into. We don’t really pay any price as such. That is only a feeling expressed in this terminology because paying a price really means you are doing something you don’t really want to a trade off.

There is no trade off when we live by principles. They light up our path and we walk on that path. Whatever comes our way, we overcome it because our training has depth. Not that there is no hurt, but that the way to remove this hurt has been taught to us. The core is strong.

Exposure to experiences is the only way to learn. Observe, try and create convictions based on your reality. And avoid shrinking your mind. Expand it and you will see how beautiful life can be.

If you close yourself up in a limited space, how would you build connectivity around you? How would you know how others are faring their pain, their disappointments and sorrows, their moments of joy? How will you actually start counting your blessings when you see people who are so much worse off than you but some of them, so much happier than you? How will you understand the concept of accepting and valuing each and everything you have? And valuing the people who care deeply?

An open heart creates an open mind and an open mind can make you an extraordinary human being.
