Your “swadharma”, your inner calling! One of the major preoccupations that can elude you for a long time, it is what comes to you naturally. Something you gave an aptitude for, something that gives you happiness. And you enjoy it.

But how do you know what is your calling in life? Especially today, when there are opportunities galore, unlike earlier when there were very few lines one could take. There is every chance of confusion or of making a wrong choice.

All achievers have had one thing in common, that they have enjoyed every minute and been passionate about what they did.

However, it can be a challenge for multi talented people. They may be good at academics, arts, culture and much more. People have been known to change their paths when they discover their true inner calling.

The best way is to observe what feelings your activities / your career path are generating. Be aware, discuss with your teachers and friends, if and when required, and go with your happiness quotient.

I have seen that those who do not have a calling don’t end up developing their personalities or confidence levels and become complex and with complexes also.

Let it suffice for me to know that I have my own calling like everyone else does and I need to find it. Have faith that it is there and try to

Find it, even with help and advice from others if you are confused. Once you find it and work on it, you will find yourself appreciating others instead of falling short in your eyes.

Sometimes, one should sit down and face the various facets of oneself. You will at first, not be able to pinpoint very many and will draw a blank. But as you keep at it, you will be surprised at what you can find out about yourself. That is if we can accept each one of them and embrace them as a part of us. Yes, embrace them after acknowledging them. Because shunning them would mean shunning we and we wouldn’t want to do that. If you shun these, you will find a mirror effect in people. They will shun you. That’s the way life works. So, accept yourself and be accepted by others.

To say it as it is, clearly and without any emotional angles can be a wonderful way to show simplicity. Emotion of any kind colours your statements as also our behaviour. I also find that it shows in your body language. Basically, it is not coming from a clean space.

It is amazing how any blocked energy can be lodged in your system for years and years. Use your inner electronic conveyor belt , like that of a treadmill, to keep moving with a healthy plan for life and definitely include leaving each step behind as you take the next one. Retracing only helps when you want to heal something that was left incomplete. Don’t forget to revisit and heal. Nip any tendency of a residue build up in the bud. It takes a long time to clean so many cob webs. And time is short.

I was talking to a friend about how stress can pile up on you because of your vulnerability to some relationships. These people know which buttons to press to make you go a little crazy sometimes some contentious relationships which can’t be severed and can’t be tolerated. It is as if two people are just waiting with their fangs out, ready to pounce on each other. And even if this sounds funny, it is really not, when you are within the situation.

Change this and you can get the ownership of yourself back. Changing this means changing and transforming the feelings that induce and lead to the war like environment. Not allow anyone to take away your choice of response and turn it into an angry or frustrated rejoinder.

We can’t smoulder from within and keep a peaceful front for too long AND retain our health as well. So, either we have to completely get away from such people or decide that they are not getting anywhere with you. That you remain unaffected even amused.

The best way to change your energies is to challenge yourself to become immune and get your control back. And hope no one thinks that this is a minor task and can be accomplished with just a “hey presto! “

Self image


One of the biggest fears we humans seem to have is to be proven wrong. We go to any lengths to give excuses, explanations and justify ourselves. It is a malady! We are humans after all, and what is wrong in saying, “I was wrong?” It clears the air between two people if you admit the truth, that of being wrong.

But no! We will severe the connection itself if we have to, but will not confess. To say “I am wrong” requires guts and courage. You feel people will judge you and think negatively about you. But on the contrary, you will be respected for stating your truth because very rarely do people come out with simple, straight forward admissions of this kind.

If you lie to yourself, try to do a cover up of your mistake, people know what you are doing. I had a teacher in school who, if she didn’t know an answer to a student’s question, simply said that she didn’t know but would find out the answer and tell him. She was one of the most highly respected teachers, for her honesty and simplicity.

It is such a burden to carry and such a false self image! What’s the point? It can only cause stress. And you find yourself shying away from people for not having the courage to look at them in the eye. Not a single winning point there, right then why?

Vibrations


Old souls returning to the earth to help raise the vibrations! The kids today are remarkable in their maturity. You just can’t treat those babies and kutchi koo with them like you did with the earlier generations. If you do that, you get a strange feeling like they are looking at you and thinking, “isn’t this aunty silly?” An amusing thought but you will see how mature their eyes are.

The one wonderful trait they exhibit is inclusiveness. If there are ten adults sitting in a group, they will address each one. Something even adults don’t do. In fact, adults are often more exclusive than inclusive due to having developed strong likes and dislikes.

Inclusiveness should be emphasized in schools to take this kind trait forward. Especially amongst the kids in general because, very often, parents are heard complaining about some kids being bullies, being mean etc. Sadly, this also depends on the parents who are care takers at home and need to provide love and security to their kids.

Knowledge multiplies as you share it, because when you share it, you need to have assimilated it well yourself and with each assimilation comes more depth. And there comes a point where you can bring it down to basics and explain it simply. That’s the true test of your knowledge.

There are people who read from books and teach. But how much introspection goes before the teaching is to be gauged. How much the knowledge from books is crystallized is the question.

Sometimes, we tend to speak without adequate knowledge of people and other things. And when there are people around, young and old, someone is taking this seriously. So, one really has a huge responsibility to speak with care, not idly, and to impart knowledge with care.
