Writing and sharing is such a cleansing and elevating experience! Each time I write, I add a new thought to my own thought bank. Something to chew on. Like, wow! I have unearthed another aspect, another angle, deepening my understanding that much more.

After a while, it tends to become an addiction. There is always an excitement before developing a thought. Like, what will I discover next?

Thoughts being the prime energy, this energy expands into new horizons as we write, think and write again. Every spoken word, every line read somewhere…just about everything is available for thought application if there is enough awareness and interest.

Promises


“I really wanted to do it but could not”. ” I wanted to actually say something else but I ended up….”.” I am going to do this tomorrow even if I have to create a 25th hour.”…

Promises! Promises! To myself or others or both….but no action…constant procrastination shows an undefined, undecided mind. Maybe, a lazy mind with very little positive energy. Someone who is carrying a huge weight on them. Or, a diffident mind.

Sometimes, I think the journey is so darned complicated! Such different mindsets! So much emotion! So much distrust…Lack of courage…among those “lucky” people who have much to thank the Universe for.

And on the other side, friendly and smiling faces of those who are “deprived” of faculties, limbs but filled with divine energy and divine spirit…fearless and indomitable.

I learnt a new lesson today. A renewed awareness of these aspects of learning and the fact that it is so important to resume living life after every rest we take.

Life works very logically. When you want something, it keeps you in want. When you feel abundant, abundance comes to you. Strange? Not really.

See…we are all about memories. Unpleasant and pleasant. Negative and positive. So, when we live within those negative memories and are not happy, we feel a lack, and we cut our cord with the completeness which is the Divine. Of which we are a part. It is like saying, I am born in my family but I am not a part of it. So, I will not do what they do.

So… a lack cannot be filled up unless you recognize that you don’t have any lack actually. The Divine, your source, is complete. You CANNOT have a lack. It is only a perception.

In the second scenario, you feel abundance. Because you understand the truth about who you are and where you belong. So, nothing transient should be able to take away your abundance. However much you try and empty an ocean with a cup, you can’t. It will always be complete. And when you don’t react to the world, you live in a perpetual state of abundance.

To deserve what you get! How far is this true? Does everyone get what they deserve? “Deserving” is such a debatable word. We all feel at one time or another that we didn’t get what we deserved. It is an imaginary yardstick we have for ourselves that makes or breaks us.

Who is really to say what we should have or not have in terms of anything ? Or, deserve it for that matter.

How many times we set goals, work towards them but fail to achieve them. Did we not deserve them then?

Likewise, we get pulled into a tunnel of success in something we never even hankered after. Did we deserve that when we did not ever work for it ? Was it luck? Or karma?

So, deserving is something it is better not to focus on too much. You want to achieve something, go at it with full steam. Try your best. Don’t judge at all, whether you achieve your goals or not. Because, this is a most positive way you can live your life. Circumstances may change while you toil. You may also decide to change course along the way. Who knows? So, why care or wonder about deserving at all? You had what you had. You have what you have. You will have what you will have in the future. A perfect attitude for contentment.

Life makes us change by force if we don’t do it willingly and with understanding. We resist and resist and resist….we agonize, agonize, agonize…we defy, defy, defy…we live in conflict, combat the world day after day….

And what happens finally? Nothing but exhaustion! More and more exhaustion. Till we want to drop.

When do we call it a day? When do we start looking for a little bit of heaven? A little bit of peace?

A tortoise withdraws into its shell to keep safe during an adverse climate. Not so the human…sometimes, two people are too many! And the shell is merely a nonexistent illusion. The desire to have your will prevail at all costs blinds a human to all else. After all, aren’t the free will a gift of God? While we move slowly but surely towards exhaustion, we lose out on life itself…and then nothing matters anymore.

I wish we could “see” ourselves growing up. And stop ourselves each time we were getting conditioned by thoughts and ideologies that would never work later in life…so much of what we imbibe along the way is not our own. We have been indoctrinated with belief systems that are not personally experience based. So, they may not fit the bill. As grownups, therefore, we end up unlearning some, relearning some and creating some new ones.

The mistake we make is not stopping to re examine our thought processes often enough. We carry on living according to our obsolete thinking and wonder why we are not feeling light and happy.

So, recreate yourself time and time again to feel the pulse of life. Live life to the fullest. Release yourself from old pains, and go forward light hearted and adventurous into the exciting unknown.

With most people, I see a struggle in the understanding of the “forgive and forget” principle. First, it seems hard, even impossible to forgive someone who has hurt you. Second, there seems to be an issue about erasing those memories. Somewhere within, when we are broken, we suffer and automatically, the grouse is with the person who caused the grief, the pain. Naturally, no one wants pain.

But it is equally true that without pain, growth is a distant dream. If we did not know what the opposite of light is, we would not recognize light. A vision impaired has no way of seeing day and night. Similarly, symbolically, despite having eyes, we either can’t, don’t or refuse to “see”. But we need to see. To see what the truth is about why the pain.

See what? The root cause of the pain. Our pain is due to our own inability to tolerate the darkness in others. And that is natural because, basically, we are beings of light. But that darkness is not only in others but reflected within us, too. And when this happens, the cognizance of this inner darkness decreases our tolerance levels of ourselves. That gets reflected in the opposite person. And the pain keeps adding on.

Imagine, if we refused to take the pain within us. What would happen? It would bounce off you and be returned to the sender. But we don’t know how to do that. Or, the little devil sitting inside, the ego, won’t let us. So, we deliberately start taking hurtful actions in retaliation. Any escalation takes two people. Like you need two hands to clap. You can choose not to clap.

So, pain is a choice we make. The pain of rejection, hate, jealousy, revenge, injustice, betrayal, cruelty etc. These are powerful energies and, when directed towards anyone, would take a very strong person to deflect them…a person who makes a conscious choice to remain untouched by these energies.

I cannot express in words how elevating this exercise can be and how beautifully energizing.

Even if one does not want to go deep into this, a simple thumb rule to follow is to block negative energy by giving it a positive connotation. And find it in your heart to feel sad for those who are still living in the low vibration field. You will see then it becomes easier to forgive. You will also decide that such memories are also not worth keeping.
