Change…

More and more, I see that people are becoming eager to find out the “truth”……….they are consciously walking away from settled and conditioned beliefs of life. I have to but believe that the new wave of consciousness is gaining momentum, why else would the ‘Search’ become so “Alive”……..

It’s been a while since I have written anything and I wish I can attribute that to my travelling, schedule etc but I cannot….why? Because my head is also going through “Search” and I am as caught up in this entire energy vortex as the next person. I can only imagine someone’s fear and apprehension who is clueless about the energies swirling around us currently ……however is riding these waves of consciousness and energy.

There comes a time in life when we are absolutely amazed at how the seemingly unassuming events and situations can turn into blind turns and twists…..when the sanctuary becomes a confined space and the assumed and accepted version of life seems to be getting a make-over. It is about change and growth………..events, people and situations which never had any importance in our lives suddenly generate a magnetic pull and we find ourselves at cross roads…..doubting our very cores. It feels like all we have ever been, ever wanted is being overhauled completely by what we are feeling now…..as if an invisible force field around us is pushing us from within and around.

What do we trust and who do we trust becomes a perennial question invading the mind, heart and soul…silently shattering the silence…….to add to that we are also clueless as to where to go…how to go about it. It is true that no one is born with the rule book of Life…”Free Flow” is after all the very essence of Life however all through Life…as we continue to Live….we create certain “guidelines” if you will; in this moment where everything seems to be shifting and changing or being deconstructed…..it feels like “Something” is firmly kickin’ the derriere of the precious “guidelines” that we so lovingly and religiously created as a safe haven for when thoughts or situations run amok.

From an energy stand point, this seems to be the period where all things old and worn out need to be released and the path cleared for the new to make its way in, it marks the end of a 26000 year cycle on Planet Earth. One can argue that this seems easier said than done and I say they would win hands down. Although we have beautiful things to say about change, there isn’t a short cut to actually accept change…….we have to go through the entire process and it is imperative that we do so because only then we know exactly what we are leaving behind and for what reasons. The reason I write about this today isn’t because I can prescribe a way to go about it without being affected in the bargain, it is on the contrary infact…. what I want to say is that while this entire process can be painful….excruciating even…it is the only way to go. When we connect to this energy reality where we know that we have to move out of this space which although familiar does not feel comfortable anymore. If we want to be truthful to ourselves, then no matter how hard the journey is, the only thing that can bring us closer to ourselves and stop that feeling of restlessness is to move on. It is without a shadow of doubt easier to stay in our comfort zones and feel incomplete than gather courage to tread through the unknown waters….unexplored territories…..unchartered course of lands…………easier “yes”…fulfilling “no”

This too shall pass…no matter how hard it feels right now……if you keep going on and listening to that inner voice of yours…..the light will guide you and will take you to a place where you can be true to yourself and feel fulfilled. If it is any comfort, I know that we are not alone on this Journey of Change and Expansion…the whole planet is experiencing this…every moment of every day and that once we take a step…the next step appears!!!

The Perennial Debate: Anger v.s. Forgiveness!!!!!!!

Anger is such a limiting and acidic emotion…..everytime we feel anger, it leaves us drained of the vital life force, constantly erodes our peace of mind; manifests as ailments in our body….gives us insomnia.

With every appearance, it reduces our ability to see the truth, causes delusion of control when all it does is spins our emotions out of control.

Anger eats away the person who holds it in their hearts and minds, it is akin to holding a burning piece of coal in our bare palm expecting to throw it at someone else when all the while the hot coal burns the skin off of our hands.

When you allow anger to guide you, it clouds your judgement; it makes everything appear darker, more grim and more hurtful than it needs to be.

 It is addictive and like every addiction it tricks you to believe in the false sense of control which it creates in your mind……………it does not let you go free. It is like keeping your heart tied in a barbed wire…..it only hurts you.

v.s. 

Forgiveness on the other hand is so liberating and therapeutic; every time we allow Forgiveness into our hearts and lives…it washes away the acidic Anger and leaves in its wake….Peace and Freedom…….

When we choose to forgive, it under no circumstance should be equated to condoning the action; it actually means you are able to see the person and the action as two different things and deal with it accordingly without confusing one with the other.

Forgiving means you are no longer going to carry on the consequence of someone else’s action, you are no longer going to allow that event or person’s behavior keep you enslaved.

 Forgiveness allows you the choice to move on……it liberates you. Once you forgive the action, you can then choose to either allow the person a second chance or move on without a second glance however without the baggage.

Forgiveness is like Spring, with a riot of colors and fragrance. It fills you up with creativity, hope and beauty.

When the distinction is available to you, it only is a matter of time before you choose one; just remember your choice can enslave you or set you free……

Happy Choosing:))

The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Least Effort

The Law of Least Effort is the principle of least action, of no resistance. This is, therefore, the principle of harmony and love.

 Act from love. Least effort is thus expended, because nature is held together by the energy of love.

When we allow our actions to be inspired by Love, we automatically become more……simply more……. patient, understanding, trustworthy, charitable and most impotantly…Peaceful.

Attend to spirit rather than ego. When your internal reference point is your spirit, you are immune to criticism and unfearful of any challenge.

It is only our Ego-Self which creates insecurities, operates out of fear and makes everything look bleak, doubtful and simply keeps us away from claiming and reveling in our true potential. It is like an attack of a Trojan Horse on our sacred hard-drive which then just completely establishes its control wherever it feels like………… leaving us in the lurch meanwhile with a false sense of security that all is Like we Wish and Think it is.

Accept people, situations, circumstances, and events as they are, not as you wish they were.

Ever wonder! If only it was like this, I would be all ok…………If only he (or she) did (or did not) do this one little teeny tiny thing..everything would be just perfect……….well…the truth is ……you have your mind map and they have their’s……when you actually give room to people to be themselves….only then can they truly BE and really if a person cannot be completely true to themselves how can they be true to you. Our wishes can be ginormous and there isn’t a molecule wrong with that thought energy…however when our wishes insist on other people changing their wishes…..how fair is that and more importantly…..do we really feel happy at the end of the day????

When you feel upset, remember that you are not reacting to the person or the situation, but to your feelings about the person or the situation.

Well…I love this one……let us remember a time or a situation where someone did something which upset us terribly…….now honestly think….what is the first thought that runs on this very active Min(e)d field of ours……………”How could he / she do this to me? How could they not understand I would get hurt or something like that” Sounds familiar???? Now what caused this reaction….surely not the presence of the person or the deed…instead the reaction is caused by what you felt because of that action. When we are in a stressful situation……we have a choice….to Let it IN or Let it GO…….our decision decides…whether we going to trap ourselves in prisons of Self-Pity, Anger, Resentment……or Understand that while we may not condone the action….we have the choice to allow ourselves to say so and TRULY move on from there. Also let us not forget that we always have the right to choose people and situations that we allow into our lives.

Do not blame anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself; then every situation will become your teacher, and an opportunity for the creation of something new and beautiful.

I agree that this is not the easiest thing to practice….. however, a butterfly cannot have strong wings if it does not build its strength trying to break through the cocoon. When we can distance ourselves from a situation, we allow ourselves to truly observe it dispassionately and the blur becomes a picture for us to study the details of 🙂 With this amazing clarity and a relaxed mind, we can actually begin to understand why….what happened…..and how can we ensure that the situation is refined or replaced with something new and beautiful.

Completely desist from defending your point of view. Relinquish the need to convince others of your opinion.

An old adage, “when you are trying to convince too much, it suggests you are not convinced enough about it yourself”. when we try to convince too much, it is a sign that we are actually looking for approval and affirmation that what we are thinking is ok. While I agree that we need to put our point forth…..let’s do it because we want it to be expressed and known….let’s not insist that everyone should be convinced about it. After all right and wrong are relative to one’s state of mind and being. A seed needs to be given time to turn into a plant afterall and as long as you know that you are going to tend to that seed…..all is simply fine 🙂

Make a commitment to follow the path of no resistance: simply declare your intent to yourself, and you will experience fulfillment, delight, joy, freedom, and autonomy in every moment.

When your intentions are clear and your faith is strong…………..all you need to do is…..Simply Allow that intention to be realised. The universe works in magical ways and it is only when we resist, that what we resist….persists. The Law of Attraction is absolute………….like all the other Laws of Nature……..you need to BE ….after all you are a Human Being….not a Human Doing :))

Ultimately you come to the state where you do nothing and accomplish everything.

Love, Laughter and Light

🙂 Namaste 🙂

Being True to Yourself is all that matters

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

The Simplicity of being a Child!!!

Simplicity of being a child……….a thought that has often crossed my mind especially in the last few days. As I observed my 2-year-old nephew, I came to realize even more poignantly the faith…the absolute Faith that a child never seems to be without. Whether they are in a room or outside or in a moving car……..they just Believe that there will always be someone to hold them if there were to be a likely fall. Even after a fall, a child will never get scared to walk again or run or go out to play. No matter how vicious the fight, the next morning a Child again goes looking out for that friend; after getting scolded by a parent, a child still loves them. No matter how little or how much they have….they share because they want to and this desire is not fuelled by duty or righteousness……………..it is just their heart’s desire. They believe in Fairies and Angels, in beautiful worlds filled with absolutely gorgeous realities, they wonder how a bud turns into a flower, they believe in the man on the moon. 

 They don’t know how to hold a grudge or how to stop smiling.  They are the epitome of unconditional love….they just will avoid a person if they don’t feel comfortable….they do not slander a person if they don’t somehow gel with them. They just trust their instincts and allow their bodies to tell them when to expect what. They are so open about what they like and do not like….they just don’t have the understanding of Judgement…..hence they are completely themselves where-ever they are. The curiosity and inquisitiveness which is so innate to them is what propels them to try new things without fear, they do not have even an inkling of what is it to suppress. They don’t get scared of being labeled as dumb or foolish if they don’t know something. They are just Pure Beings of Love and happy to BE.

Why is it then that we destroy this beauty and innocence of a child to turn them into people who are competitive yet never satisfied….want to earn more yet never have the time to enjoy that………..want to love yet somehow forget how………..want to cry yet get scared of the labels…..want to learn new things and explore new places yet suppress these feelings……want to play yet don’t have the time………want to call their friend yet think too much about losing the fight………judge people basis what they can do for them……stop listening to the voice of their souls…………..lose their Faith….and ultimately forget how to be happy…..and thus starts their journey to look within themselves and to go looking for Happiness….something they were born with.

The good news is that today more people than ever before are working towards ensuring that the kid in us….stays there…happy and healthy. It ain’t wrong to grow up and learn what we are meant to learn on our journey on this planet, I mean after all we choose to be born to learn lessons and progress on our soul journey but who says we cannot keep the child within us to help us on this journey and trust me it is possible….we might get hurt or disappointed on this journey but we will always have the child in us to help us smile, get up and walk again or may be Run….who knows….after all then we will have our Faith in Miracles right where it should be…………in our hearts 🙂

If you are looking for inspiration, look at some of your baby photographs because all you need you will find there………….you will find the True You….Fearless and Free….ready to just BE

Being Spiritual

The question is “What is Spirituality?”…there are myriad answers, depending on who do you speak with. The one that seems quite prevalent is the one which claims that being spiritual means moving away from the materialistic world, giving up your pleasures and leisure and leading a somewhat spartan life. I with all due respect to all who hold this point of view have a different take. Spirituality is a search………search of self….exploration to understand the depth of our consciousness; it is about understanding the Divine flow of energy. It is about finding balance…..and that balance only means accepting ourselves and every aspect of ourselves. It is about being truly whole………and understanding that there is power which pulsates within our beings, which moves us and creates constantly for us…through us.

Being Spiritual is diametrically opposite to renouncing the materialistic world…it actually means finding balance while you enjoy this world and all that you do. If your life’s purpose requires you to be a soldier and protect your country, you will hardly find peace by renouncing that and sitting idle in a mountain resort. It is imperative to understand that everything that we are and that we do is woven intricately with the fabric of Spirituality as Spirit is energy and we are beings of energy….. energy flows through us…around us. The flow of energy does not stop to convince us or does not require our belief in it…..it just “Is”. Our True Self is in complete harmony with this flow. This “True Self” is a part of the cosmos hence is completely balanced and is peaceful………..it flows like Water without distinguishing easy or rocky terrain….it shines like Sun both on what we know is good and what we term as bad……it does not judge or choose….it is LOVE in its purest form. We are all part of this Divine Universe…..This Divine Universe is part of the Divine Multiverse…………if you are essentially a part of the Divine how can you not be Divine.

Being spiritual means to simply embark on this inner journey of finding this “True Self”. While on this journey, we do not need to give up our worldly lives for we are meant to live in this world and it is created as the platform for us to learn and grow from. It only means to listen to that tiny little voice whispering inside us, urging us to look beyond what our trained senses tell us…………to look beyond all man created imperfections and rejoice instead in the beauty which exists in all.

Once we discover this “True Self” it is like in the vast ocean and finding the bottom of the ocean where there is a magnificent world of its own. This space then becomes the proverbial “suspended” reality where we can then relinquish all fears which plague us. We are whole, less needy to seek approvals or acceptance from others, less judgemental of others life’s and choices, more loving and accepting of not only others’ but ourselves, we are more forgiving and doing so and being so releases us. When we find this space, there are limitless possibilities to create and enjoy and rejoice……….for this is where “Real Magic” is found. Even a glimpse of this “True Self” is enough to propel us on this Journey of “Being Spiritual”………..and then whatever we do and wherever we are and whoever we are with is infused with love and balance; we are more productive as we move from the space of limitations to that of possibilities. Once we start on the road to find our “Self”, we will notice how our physical bodies become healthier, how stress and anger dissipates from our lives and how peace radiates from our beings. This is because all dis-eases are a result of unresolved emotions and unassimilated lessons of our lives which manifest in the physical bodies…………once we become aware of the innate connection between body, mind and soul…we are automatically respectful of all three and therefore more attentive of what they tell us.

Now, I have been asked, does finding our “True Self”, means we will never again get angry or scared or judgemental or harbor ill intentions for others…………Well the answer is ……….certainly not for we are in this world and here those aspects are a constant and will be till our collective consciousness moves to the next level and no longer needs this reality to learn from…however it means that when we do get caught up in this wave of low energetic thoughts, we are aware of our thoughts and what actions they inspire and therefore we are able to release these thoughts with less resistance…………it means that earlier a fight or event which bothered us for days will now bother for may be just a day or less……it means that we forgive more easily and release ourselves from the bondage of anger and resentment. It means our physical bodies will be healthy, our emotional and mental bodies will be more balanced and our spiritual bodies will be constantly exploring our Divine Power and Higher Consciousness………….

Just one last thing, when you embark of this journey……..you will always be supported and guided……….so if there is a restlessness inside you….do not suppress it as an acid reflux…..instead try to ask yourself…”is that my Inner Self stirring inside”?

Bon Voyage fellow explorers 🙂

Honoring your True Feelings – A Message from the Fairies

The message that the Fairies sent out is “Honor your True Feelings”. We all have an inner guide, inner counselor, inner voice if you please; now this voice always talks to us however there are times when we try to rationalize what we actually hear and alter or take our decisions as per that. More often than not that decision ends up being “Penny wise-Pound Foolish” as the more we disregard this inner voice, the more we move away from who we really are. The mirror starts reflecting the person we have created as opposed to the person we really are.

The Fairies today urge us to pay attention to our inner guide; messages could be a strong physical reaction like anxiety, weak stomach, headache, recurring aches and pains in the body, insomnia etc or a strong urge (Gut feeling) to do something like calling someone or not, going somewhere or not, changing a career or a job…oh! it could be anything. What is important is today they want to remind us of the inner compass and guide who is born with us and is always there with us.

They say if you are unclear about which feelings to trust or which emotions are stirring inside you, take a pen and paper and write down everything that you are experiencing as this will give you clarity about it. The inner voice is not the voice of our ego and the clear distinction is when you receive the messages you will feel safe and good about yourself and everyone involved in that decision.

If you feel scared, you can ask them to help you move in the right direction.

“We are loved and always protected, you need only to believe”
