Personal behaviour


The thing about personal behaviour is that though you may get several accolades or critics by your side, ultimately, you are your own judge. Your motives are your own , and not always fathomed by the onlookers. So, it is probably better to be in a state of equilibrium on the outside and introspective within. No one is going to give you medals or punish you .

Generally, our conscience does all of this. Because we can’t hide from ourselves, right ? The buck , therefore, stops right here, with us. It cannot be passed on. And hence, the periodic need for introspection.

Grief sometimes has a very deep impact. Often, very deep disappointments with very close people can also become a source of grief. What you least expect from a person can hit you hard. So, try not to let the feeling run too deep or it will affect your health.

As I was discussing with someone, as per our tradition, duty and responsibility has been given a higher role than even love. There is a very good reason for this. While doing your duty, you do what you are supposed to do. What is right by you? You don’t look at what the others are doing. So, by not being reactive, it is easy to know your “dharma” and fulfill it. No emotion. Health remains intact. It is a win situation for you. You are actually working from your higher self Great way to be.

Each day, we create our reality with our thoughts. We really don’t realize what power thoughts have. We are not in command or in charge of ourselves to see this even. We happily go around creating a web of negativity around us and getting stuck in its reality. Negative produces more negative. Our inner reality is our outer reality. No two ways about that.

So, better be careful what we think or wish for. What really works is love and blessings, unconditionally.

Come to think of it, we don’t offer gratitude often enough. We are not aware enough that the burning heat of life does not touch us in extremes. Yes, there are challenges for all of us. But, many of us tend to over amplify those challenges and make a huge deal without realizing that there are worse case scenarios around us , the kind we would not be able to tolerate even , just because we have not really been burnt to experience the difference .

We have kind of escaped the areas that the mines have been laid out or have lucked out in not entering those areas. And what you don’t experience ever becomes a memory to learn from.

Somewhere along the way, each time we forgot to say “thank you” to the Universe, we lost a little bit of our energy. And each time we are filled with gratitude, we are transported to a higher plane where there is happiness and joy. They are generated from within and so, also, remain with us over a long period of time.

In the Indian discipline, fasting has many benefits. Many religions also advocate it as a cleanser of toxins. The benefits, however, are many if fasting extends in thought, word and deed.

Therefore, “mouna” or silence is very important. Silencing your thoughts, your speech and abstaining from toxic foods purifies the system. It purifies thoughts, exercises some measure of control over speech automatically and puts you in a placid and calm state of mind.

Children in schools should be initiated most definitely. A daily exercise of silence or chanting for a few minutes to start the day with can make a sizeable difference to those who are hyperactive. The younger generations of parents are incorporating this technique on a daily basis with positive results.

It really would be ideal to introduce parts of the earlier “Gurukul” system of holistic education to make the future generations ethically, morally, mentally, emotionally and physically strong and balanced.

There comes a time when you are absolutely saturated by all that goes around . Which you were a part of earlier in life. But somewhere along the way, the falseness, the meaninglessness of all conflict, all separatist tendencies, all pettiness, all self absorption, all cruelty , sadism, merciless killing and destruction… becomes so over the top that the mind just wants to switch off. And words fail.

Finally , this time, silence dawns . There is just no speech that can describe any of it.No opinions need be given. No judgemental statements may be spouted. Everything is just an ego battle. What’s the point ?

Silence is the best policy. Watch the world go by. Remain sane by stepping aside.

I don’t know why people feel that praising anyone takes away from them. How ? I have never understood. In fact, lauding people for their , accomplishments or achievements or talent makes you feel so good ! So connected to the Divine energy that stands illuminated in each one of us.

Being generous is a true gift. Many times, if we don’t like someone, we only criticise . And praise ??? Never !!! Sad but true ! Envy ? Probably . Low self esteem ? For sure.

But once we analyse this, we must make a genuine effort to cleanse this aspect within us . Because this block really acts as a big obstacle, a hindrance in our personal growth. It blocks the heart which carries the Divine energy of divine love.
