Believe


Alternate healing will be mainstreamed very soon. Those who don’t “believe” in it are the ones who haven’t even tried it. Strange ! Doctors are turning towards such techniques. Remarkable recoveries have been seen.

My personal experience too. Having been advised surgery for the boils on my upper eyelids, I cured them through a special paste application every night. There are numerous such examples. According to doctors, I should not be walking straight. But I am managing to even shake a leg regularly. We are so brainwashed by allopathy. A doctor means only one who practices allopathy.

Kitchen herbs, vegetables and fruit, pranayama, yoga, juices etc have cured many , many. According to many observations, Allopathy suppresses more, cures less. Other methods pull out the ailments from their root. However, to each her own or his own.

No man is an island and everyone needs someone. In good times and bad times, a good support system makes life easier and more soul friendly. You don’t need many around you. But one should be like three; that caring that desirous of being there for you, as you must be for them as well.

Innocent and sincere friendships are heartwarming. When you see an evidence, your smile also is genuine and your heart happy.

When I hear people say, “but I care so much ” in words more than action, this spells a lack of spontaneity , maybe a kind of getting stuck in a comfort zone and not willing to walk the extra miles. Whatever else the reason!

A support group of friends and family is a total necessity at any time.

When you go through something major in life, like a trauma, a sudden episode where the presence of God really hits you, there occurs a major change in your life, in your priorities. What used to matter so much seems trivial, even laughable? The first thing that hits you is, what was the point of giving less importance to yourself, your health and more to external factors  and more important, the unimportant factors.

Most of us make this mistake. Yes, I do call it a mistake because often, you lose awareness of your own body, mind and soul in catering to outside circumstances and people. Definitely not worth it in the long run, is it? You need people when you are unwell and there is no guarantee they will be there. Instead, just be well. Look after yourself first. Wear your oxygen mask first. And then, use the milk of human kindness to help others.

Why is it that when we have been doing the same drill for 20 years, like climbing the same steps we can actually climb almost blindfolded, that in the 21st year, we fall on the very same staircase ? You get hurt for sure: your ego takes a knock as well. How did you do something so silly? You should have been used to it by now.

Well, folks, maybe, it is all about losing your awareness at that time.

Haven’t we seen again and again that it’s all about awareness in everything, As opposed to the fact that you can never take anything or anyone for granted; constantly to be within your awareness, watching yourself and others? To understand how to respond based on the conditions before you. How best you can act in the moment.

It is so strange that responses from the same people can be different. And so, presuming can land you into troubled waters. That’s why most people just cultivate the art of treading water.

So, lose your awareness and pay for the consequences.

Someone asked a question the other day. If you are close to two people and they fall out with each other over an issue, whose side would you take? A loaded question for sure. A tough one, too ideally, everyone would like to maintain both relationships. And why not, since you were never the involved party. Why do you have to be torn between the two anyway, right?

But there it is. Sometimes, there WILL be a tug of war and then? If you gave the courage, you should be on the side of what is right, and not the person involved.

But, right might be what appears to each person as a different perspective. When both people think they are right, what happens then? We invariably become fence sitters in the name of tact and diplomacy. The thought being,” I don’t want to spoil my relationships. Let them work

It’s out. It may not always be that simple when people are expecting you to take sides.

In life, there will be cases such as these or some others, where people may go away from you. And prefer to stay away for no fault of yours. It is okay. It doesn’t matter. It is not your business to worry about the why’s and how’s. A clear conscience is the only yardstick we should use. And after that, let people stay if they will and let go if they won’t. There will always be a soul connection.

The capacity and the ability to understand depends on the calmness of mind which we possess or should possess. To think, to analyze, we need to keep a very peaceful mind. More often than not sometimes, the anger which sits ever ready on the tips of our noses activates immediately and puts an end to anything we might have been able to understand under normal circumstances.

But having said that when people live in a toxic environment from day to day with toxic people sanity can become a “has been”. And calmness a distant dream. But people live like that. And if it doesn’t kill them, it should make them stronger. As they say in Hindi, and I am translating here, that when pain transcends beyond a point, it actually becomes like medication. And at this point, calm should descend so that the ability to analyze should return.

If only….

It is the nature of humans to oscillate between happiness and stress. We speak of increasing hours of happiness through external sources and resources when actually, isn’t it really a state of mind? Ah! The MIND! The monkey that jumps from tree to tree! With a super speed unmatched by anything else in the human being, to steady it is a challenge.

But the question is how to make happiness a state of mind? We try to keep away from people and situations that affect us adversely in order to get happiness. Which means, we ARE affected and are in denial? Pushing away issues under the carpet may give us a superficial impression of happiness but there are definitely unhealed issues festering within.

As we know, many of us kill the child within us at some point. Believe me, if you don’t carry the forgetting and loving innocence of that child as an adult, all you will do is live your life cloaking your real emotions, hiding hurt from the world and blaming something or someone most times and also trying to become successful so that THAT becomes your benchmark for happiness. Hmmm! Let’s not forget that THAT is an external benchmark designed to ARRIVE at happiness. Whereas, happiness is not something to be arrived at.

Actually, without the shining light of simplicity, innocence and forgiving, can there be real happiness? I have yet to see it.
