When we think negative, we tend to think and see the worst in everything. We also tend to be more pessimistic during such phases. It can turn into a vicious cycle of thinking the worst, losing hope and again, thinking the worst because we lose hope. This pattern goes into a loop.

But I have also seen such patterns replaced by some very remarkable positive ones. The trick is to always visualize a candle in the darkness. And that flame can expand and expand until there is no darkness. After all, darkness is just an absence of light, isn’t it?

The power of thought and of constant positive visualization is irreplaceable. If only humans knew how to channelize their higher self which is a powerhouse?

When our heart knows something is about to end, we still don’t want to accept it. We want to prolong the experience, sometimes for the wrong reasons. The natural outcome of whatever is meant to be will happen only when “I” get out of the way, so to speak “I”, meaning my “wrong reasons” like guilt, pity, dependence, inability to take hard decisions and so on.

People are always talking about practical living but I don’t really know the extent of the meaning. What constitutes the “impractical” part? It might be different for different people.

However, the one valuable experience I can share is, if you desire something don’t look at it in the face. Turn away and it will come to you when you least expect it and when the time is right. And if it doesn’t, then maybe, it was never meant to be. And in all this thought process, l am keeping myself as merely an observer, an analyst. “I” am not there.

At some stage, you realize that life is to be lived like a game. That’s why they say, sports builds up character. This now winning no, now losing syndrome has to bring in the ability to take both in your stride. Isn’t it?

And that’s what we go through in life, now being successful and now, not much. As a young girl, I asked Mr. Vijay Merchant to write in my autograph book. And he wrote:

“It is not about how you win or lose

It is how you play the game”.

And this always stayed in my mind. Truly, it is how each one of us chooses to conduct our lives that are the single most important thing. There may have been several pitfalls looking back, but you also see how you handled those and how much you learnt along the way and how far you have come. And nothing is a waste of time. Life is the largest educational Institution. You can give exams as many times as you want but hopefully, each time, the preparation will be better and better.

Divine spirit


Every night, you acknowledge that the Divine spirit guides and protects your life. You also say a prayer in gratitude, for health, safety, love and support given by the universe. When things go right, we forget that they need not have time for gratitude.

Many a time, we have a close shave, a near mishap on the road. But we are safe time for gratitude.

So many similar situations have come into our lives as potential dangers, but, only potential time for gratitude.

The true measure of a person is dependability. You may not meet for months but the one you think of first in a crisis is a friend indeed or family. How close such people have to be to you!

Can you go beyond the SMS and the whatsapp to reach out? If someone texted asking if you needed help, your instinct would always is to refuse because if you really want to help, you would not be asking.

One has to be very honest and lip service is not honesty. At the end of the day, an offer is just that an offer. Standing at someone’s doorstep unasked, unannounced, to be of help is actual help.

An angle we need to work on.

If we dwelt on the possibility that anything can happen in a second, how many of us would sleep ? That everything we build in our heads and around us in our physical reality could just be a lot of sand castles.

Does anyone know what reality is ? Is what we imagine, real or is what we see an illusion ? See the kids on the trampoline ? The excitement is how high you can go . But each time, you can’t go higher if you don’t take off from the ground . It is a normal principle of gravity . The law of life is similar. It says, keep your feet on the ground if you don’t want to be swept away like a sand castle. Take off but come back. Like everything has to.

Mindfulness


Mindfulness in each present moment has the power to erase all past recordings of all lifetimes. Sounds easy? It sure can be. But we constantly remind ourselves that it is NOT easy. Why because, actually, we don’t want to let go.

Just imagine. When we are in a crowd, do we remember what happened ten years ago, while we are being jostled and pushed? Naturally not because we are busy trying to keep our balance and prevent ourselves from falling, getting injured right?

But when a crowd of memories jostle and push your mind, the tendency is to let them knock you down and injure you, isn’t it? And your whole personality can change drastically in reaction to these injuries.

But, while being mindful in the present moment, you are focused on just what is happening in that moment. And it therefore, takes that one instant to forget all else. And if you can continue practicing this, one day, you will reach a state of constant mindfulness.
