Analysis


All these years of my practice have taught me that the one single enemy within is insecurity. It is like the nucleus of an amoeba. Everything undesirable emerges from it.

I can be insecure about innumerable things. Starting at birth, with my environment. Maybe, I was not a wanted child. The family never accepted me. Maybe, I grew up in isolation…a neglected child. Could be my family was financially not sound and I had to pinch pennies….and circumstances like this….

People seldom realize what has transpired in the lives of individuals they meet or know, and how and why they have become the way they are today…

Character and personality are not traits only from one life. We have multiple personalities living within us. Kids who display certain qualities don’t do it coincidentally. There is always a good reason.

So, insecurities build up from childhood, not only because of incidents that happen in this life but also those from other lives that we are here to neutralize.

An analysis of these insecurities will bring up effects like anger, complexes, diffidence, lack of self worth, envy , jealousy etc.

In fact, insecurities are directly proportionate to the self image. Feeling good and worthwhile is important to survival. And self image is generally based on the illusory self and therefore, cannot sustain itself, as all illusions cannot and do not.

So, try the antidote to insecurity. Strip away the surface layers of reactions one by one. Realize the power of love as being able to achieve miracles and discard anything that your soul within revolts at. Listen to the voice of the soul from within and understand what the Universe tells you about your life and how to live it. Gradually, you will succeed in dropping all insecurity, the biggest being that of the inevitability of death.

Physical level


All our lives we try and try and try…to grow and grow and grow…

We run to every opportunity there is…for healing. Different methods, a rehash of similar methods, meditation camps, workshops, tarot cards, astrology, angels, pranayama, pranic healing, reiki, hypnotherapy…etc….

And once you have been everywhere, you realize that nothing really changes if you don’t change yourself through self practice. At that stage, you feel you have read enough, listened enough, imbibed enough. And now it is time to experience. This is perhaps the starting point for change. And this is what is the most significant landmark in your life. Whatever else you may do with your life on the physical level.

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.

Sense of excitement


Life does not give prior warnings. There are no re tests. There is no fast forward or rewind. We just have to make sense of what works for us with a bit of trial and error. But that is the fun of life as well…an adventure into the unknown…

It can also be a source of stress if not treated as an adventure. But come on… what is there to lose ultimately? Only what WE hold on to, right? If we just dropped things that we carried, it would be great. And we would experience freedom.

I have found that things I was so stuck on for a long time were actually trivial, though, as per current perceptions. But that’s fine. This is what moving on means.

I believe that so much is changing in the external environment today because somewhere, humans are beginning to raise their vibrations. They have been creatures of low energy so far, their energies constantly being depleted and sacrificed to petty thoughts….not adhering to the universal principles or the spiritual ways of living. We have paid a heavy price. No more.

There is a new phase opening up. A better and hopefully, higher way of life. If you notice, several spiritual groups are meditating for world peace all over the world. The good news is, youngsters are joining in. The kids being born today are reflecting the phenomenon of the elevating vibrations of young parents. These kids are incredible.

We are gradually and surely moving into a new world where there is a sense of excitement, a hope and a proactive projection into the future. Where nothing less than merit, ethics and honesty shall prevail.

State of abundance


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.

Circumstances


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.

Exhaustion


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.
