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!!!

New Wave of Consciousness

It has been a while since I have written, a lot of that can be attributed to actual travelling or travel planning. This post is dedicated to the current energies……………. of late  I have been seeing that a lot of people are actually starting to look at aspects of our being which do not necessarily fall under the category of acceptable or logical or well “normal” even. So needless to say I truly believe that the shift is now happening at a far greater magnitude and more and more people are “wakin-up”.

It gives me unspeakable joy to see this phenomenon; I firmly believe that the collective consciousness of the human kind is In-For-A-Spin ……well! it has been for a while now. Although I have been doing research into this and meeting people who have been riding this new wave of consciousness for varying lengths of time (Time and Space being relative), I am coming across more and more people who although are very new to this are keen to understand (Finally!!!) what “Energy” is and how it governs every aspect of our being and world……. How their life is but a reflection of the energy they resonate with and project outwards. Every thought -thought and every word spoken carries a unique energy pattern…code if you will which attracts events and situations which resonate with that unique pattern….. thus our reality is formed.

Where then are we headed to, one might wonder…..especially with all the talks about the impending apocalypse…………well an end is imminent however it is an end to our old limited thoughts and ways of being not an end to Earth. Well as for the future…. I do not believe that there is a set path really….it is like clay…. we can give it any shape we want…… and if we impress a shape on clay, it takes that shape. Infact this is the reason why it is absolutely imperative that we now use our consciousness to transcend the already existing realities and limitations and create new ones which were always thought of as figments of a vivid imagination. Imagination, a sacred ground of thoughts where creation blossoms; …. “A penny for your thoughts people” 🙂

So as long as you are thinking something, think of something that would aid you in creating a new, more vibrant future for yourself. With every vibrant, creative thought, you add to the creative expression of the collective consciousness of the Universe. It is indeed far easier to think about what we don’t want rather than what we do want…a classic example being……..”I don’t wanna get late for work” rather than “Oh! I am gonna be on time for work” however we can train our minds to screen thoughts and only admit the ones that we would like to be turned into reality. I think it is time that we install that antivirus to block all the unwanted and potentially destructive thoughts and gear up our minds to work on the codes which create a magnificent Future. Let’s not forget the marvelous Domino Effect………….one good thought with the right amount of belief-energy to back it up can affect many minds who then spread it out further……………….

What we are today comes from thoughts of yesterday,

And our Present thoughts build our life of tomorrow.

Our Life is a Creation of our Mind.

~ Buddha

On that note, I rest my mind for the time being….on to some astral work now 😉

It’s your Life……Live it Your Way..!!!

You can choose for that day to be “Today”

It is the single most liberating experience of being alive, when we actually understand our true power and our role in creating…(designing if you will) our lives. The moment when we stop asking rhetorical questions, finding someone to blame and trying to control every aspect of our lives as per the benchmark “rights” and “wrongs” is the exact moment when we actually start living. It is not an easy feat especially with our years of conditioning and of course the rampant ravings of people always trying to prove their innocence in a situation, relationship or event gone wrong. After all if it was someone else’s doing, aren’t we safe….well safe enough to be the victim???

Don’t get me wrong, I have had my fair share of playing “victim” and it isn’t that I have any dearth of patience with people who are still a bit far away from finding their true power. No it isn’t that at all, infact the reason I harp on and on about it is because it took me a fair few reminders before it clicked one fine day and the “Penny dropped” 🙂

It is our thoughts, whether of fear or Love, envy or appreciation, and other emotions which actually bring about a reality. The Law Of Attraction rules!

Another aspect which I definitely want to write about is just because we claim our “power” does not mean that we become less compassionate, less social or less empathetic….it simply means that we do not blame others for our choices and we begin to connect with ourself enough for us to respect our own likes and dislikes; it makes us clear about who we really are and accept ourselves (every last bit of us…aspects that would make us proud or cringe in shame). It infact makes us less judgemental and opinionated about the people and world around us………we can appreciate the relativity of “Rights” and “Wrongs”…… so we can begin to see things as they are as opposed to seeing things through our conditioned, preprogrammed mind.

So here’s to Life….Live it Your Way!!!

The Journey from Darkness to Light….!!!

Well this post has taken me forever to write and I guess I sort of know why!! Everytime I sat down to finish it I somehow felt that I am not going to be able to do justice, I mean the proverbial Darkness has sooooo many shades and intensity levels and I felt truly at a loss of words. I kept thinking why is it becoming such a task and then I had to remind myself to breathe 🙂 and just go with the flow…I mean isn’t that the whole point…..to just let go and pen down what comes to mind!! So here goes….well….my flow of thoughts 🙂

We all encounter darkness….doesn’t matter when and how. It is probably an essential part of our existence too because our “Journey” is all about moving through the Darkness into Light. So in that respect, I believe Darkness deserves to be written about and explored a little more. There are many textbook definitions about darkness like the most “googled” one is “Darkness, in contrast with brightness, is a relative absence of visible light It is the appearance of black in a color space.” Well no matter how we perceive it, whether as an all-consuming force, a recurring heartache, a blanket of complete desolation or the mere absence of light…we know that Darkness exists. And in a way…it is only in Darkness that we can truly appreciate the Light…isn’t it???

Now that brings me to how I connect to Darkness? In this post, I use it as a metaphor to define the Darkness that dwells in all of us……Anger,  Insecurity, Jealousy, Resentment, Hatred,  Self-Criticism, Self-Loathing, and most importantly Fear. To me Fear is the absolute darkness because it truly can paralyze us into believing things about ourselves that are so debilitating that it takes quite a while to get ourselves out of it. Now the reason I was so keen to write about Darkness is because I wanted to share what an important part of our journey it is because it is only when we are aware of the Darkness, can we move towards the Light. I am sure that it is a known fact that the longer we have lived with any of the above mentioned emotions, the harder it is to get rid of it; however there is this one more critical aspect…..I have come to speak and work with loads of people through the therapy and counselling sessions or card readings and more often than not it is anger/ fear/ criticism etc for self which is the most destructive of all and the hardest to reconcile with. Even when I assist them through forgiveness sessions, the hardest part is when people have to forgive themselves; I guess that is because to forgive oneself would require us to own up to having made choices which were not (for lack of a better word) “right”. This is where most people stumble as understandably it is easier to deal with the pain if the source is external; it is easier to believe that someone else did “that” to us than believing that our unconscious thoughts brought us to that reality; it takes a lot of love, guidance and gentleness to bring people out of their self-imposed judgements and opinions to help them see the light, to help them see how liberating it is to finally let go of the baggage that they have been carrying with them for so long. It indeed can be more exhausting and challenging than climbing the steepest mountain peaks.

The light is there within us all but the darkest layer (before we reach the light within) is an amalgamation of Self-Anger, Self-Loathing, Self-Criticism and a strong sense of being helpless …..of being a victim. Infact I have come to realize that most part of our journey is about moving away from feeling and behaving like a victim and moving towards accepting our power in creating our lives and making our choices. Only when we become aware of this reality, can we actually move toward healing. I have also seen that the healing process always depends on the person being healed, I mean on the readiness of being healed. Having said that, I also firmly believe that whoever takes this step is always guided and there in lies the very essence of ascension. 

We need to understand that our deepest fears often lay unresolved and at times even unrecognised by us and this is where most of our behaviors and patterns of reaction originate from hence few of the most popular statements ever, ” I just don’t know what happened” or “I don’t know, why I behave like that”, or “I just couldn’t understand where that came from”………… sounds familiar???? I bet it does…..happened to me as well. It is always this absolute need to finally get the answers and break the “jinx” which prods us…pushes us toward the Light……….

One can write pages about this and someday I will……………for today I guess I just want to impress upon you the fact that it is alright if everything seems dark and desolate right now………….it is always the darkest before that first ray of Sun shines through…shattering the illusion of doom….all you gotta do is believe in the Sun

Even the world’s darkest, dreariest, longest tunnel ends and you can see the light…………….what matters is are you ready to keep on walking and moving ahead or you going to be caught up in the darkness of the past….after all in journey are the lessons…we cannot learn new things by being stagnant ❤

 

 

Angel Guidance – Thought for the Day

If you have been feeling low and sad, if you have been feeling drained out of vital energy, it is time for a spot of acknowledgement and appreciation by none other than the most important person in your life; the person who actually creates your realities. YOU

Say to yourself:

I pat myself on the back and congratulate myself for all that I’ve done. I deserve praise, because even if my sights are set on climbing higher mountains, it’s important for me to acknowledge how far I’ve come. I thank myself for getting through the tough time and enjoying the easy ones.

I know of people who will find doing something like this utterly ridiculous and pointless however what drives them is their own fears to face themselves. You know why is it easy to stay stuck in the old patterns of self-criticism and rebellion because it helps us stay comfortable in familiar zones (not happy) and to have a reason to feel that we are fighting for something. People want to fit-in in a society where struggle seems to be the way to be…..I have often heard in gatherings and parties…people tend to talk about how difficult their life is, how Mondays are the worst days of the week and how fatigued and tired they are because they have such difficult jobs and lives, how no matter how much they do, it is never enough. What they don’t understand is, everytime they say any of these statements, these statements act as affirmations which work towards creating the exact reality for them!! It is unfortunate that people do not understand the power of thoughts…they talk about self-fulfilling prophecies however they do not pay attention to their own prophecies.

Today the Angels want us to know that with every word and thought that we use and have, we are altering our realities, creating new realities so it is important that we choose them carefully. Also they want us to specifically be aware of the light within us, they want us to appreciate ourselves and be grateful for all the blessings we have in our lives; gratitude is the sure shot way to attract more good in our lives. Today, let us not focus on how hard the work that we do is, instead let us focus on the wonderful work we do….let us be thankful for being well and alive today, for having enough to eat, for the house that we stay in, for the friends we have, for the clothes and shoes we have, for our families and for the support that the Universe constantly gives us.

Be Grateful and Be Appreciative

God Dwells in me as me

God Dwells in me as me – Eat, Pray, Love (Movie)

“God dwells within you as you yourself, exactly the way you are. God isn’t interested in watching you enact some performance of personality in order to comply with some crackpot notion you have about how a spiritual person looks or behaves. We all seem to get this idea that, in order to be sacred, we have to make some massive, dramatic change of character, that we have to renounce our individuality”

It has been a cause of debate for centuries…..what is the right way to connect to God….I for one is quite happy with the turn of events for the past decade or so where more and more the shackles are being released and the “My way or Highway” way kind of belief systems are being questioned…!!! Having said this, I am not insinuating that the traditional methods of connecting to God or connecting to the Higher Consciousness does not work…..all I am saying is, that truly isn’t the a way etched in stone. With the gradual reduction of the denseness in Earth energies, so many people are experiencing more and more events that cannot be categorised under absolutes. Each journey of finding our true inner self is unique, the bends…..the highs and the lows………..the joys and sadness………is all UNIQUE 🙂 I believe that is the reason why the world over people say that children are the closest to God because they just “are” so filled with their own light and they believe what their hearts tell them.

There are still certain reference points which people refer to from time to time to understand events or certain occurrences in their lives; while it is excellent that today, the tolerance for the “dynamic / supernatural” has indeed  gotten a fair bit of recognition and we have a lot of reference material which is available to us through the world wide web, it can also cause a bit of confusion. It is imperative that we understand that the Age of Aquarius is about going within and finding the answers and as it is our individual journeys there is not a set path. The beauty of this time is that it inspires us to see and believe in oneness and the fact that we all are actually connected to the Source as we came from the same Source. An Apple tree can naturally produce only Apples 🙂 We are all part of the same Energy source. All that we are and that we see is nothing but energy.

 This also implies that even if the manner in which we experience the Divine or find peace of mind is not listed anywhere, it is OK….infact it is better than that…it is your way…your unique way of connecting to your Higher-Self. No one can confirm or deny that theirs is the only path worth following to connect to God. It is of course great to come across teachers when we are ready to learn and the guidance they give us is invaluable however if what we experience is slightly different that what they speak about….you need not despair for you still will find GOD because God dwells within you as YOU 🙂 and also the way you receive messages from the Divine is your unique way…trust in that way and be aware of it because your awareness will lend more energy to it and make that connection even stronger.

Mindful meditation is one such beautiful example; the traditional method of meditation while highly revered is not the only way to raise our vibrations and increase our awareness……….being mindful of each moment while you dance, drive, read or clean the house is equally effective. Silence indeed calms our mind and makes us more aware however some people like me get the most valuable lessons when I am writing or talking to someone whether in a healing session or otherwise…the intuitive guidance simply flows through me. Yes! I admit that even I at one point in time struggled to go the tried and tested route of sitting down…quieting my mind and while I have had success with that too….the amazing feeling of the guidance flowing through me when my mind is completely occupied with something else is quite frankly the most invigorating experience for me. This is just one aspect, I am sure that each one of us experience God in our own unique way and there is nothing wrong in that. All I would like to add to this post is….listen to your heart for your highest guidance comes from within you so pay attention and respect that voice.

If your heart tells you that a stone you found on the road has magical powers; then it does. Belief and Faith is all you need for you to connect to your Higher Consciousness which is the Divine Universal Consciousness.

So if you feel that you connect to GOD while cooking then so be it……..that’s your way and I say it rocks!!!

A bend does not have to be an end!!!!!

You know there are many bends on life’s road….sometimes we cannot see what’s up ahead and our hearts are filled with fear and doubts….however ….if we choose to allow the bend to turn into an end then we would never know how far we could have gone….what all we could have learned….who all we could have met…..Life is a Journey….and only you can decide how far you want to go……………there is nothing wrong with settling down and not going further, as long as that is what you truly want and it gives you happiness. The question is……….. does it??

More often than not, the fears we feel are not even our own…it is actually fears which others have felt because of failures that they have experienced or because of the successes that they could not achieve. How often do we put off or give up doing something because someone tells us…this won’t pay the bills…or how do you know this will work out better….or you should stay in this relationship or job, atleast you know what is wrong here…..it’s better to be sure about such things…………oh! this list could be endless. We are forever being told and shown by others what we can or can’t do…..the benchmarks set for us….our abilities constantly graded against what our parents, peers or predecessors have achieved or not. While they have their lessons to learn and their choices to make……should that define YOU?

So often, we see that a child is being told to be better at something simply because someone else is……..their uniqueness but a forgotten fairy tale as opposed to be a beacon which should guide the child in this life. Another classic example is when we see a child equate love as an expression of having achieved something or having done something right. We have witnessed numerous accounts of people who study hard all their lives because they want to achieve the dreams that someone dreamt on their behalf…while it is entirely a noble act as long as they are happy doing it….more often than not this results in them being miserable, frustrated and unhappy about themselves.

The point is not what thousands of people are doing or not….the point is do we want to continue being in this stagnant frame of mind…state of being…where every thought, course of action and choice is determined by the abilities or lack thereof….. of… others? Like I have mentioned earlier, if we stop because we are happy to be where we are, it is truly magnificent because we are following our heart and mind however if we stop because we are scared to go on or scared of failing someone……then you have something to think about.

For every reality that we believe in….there is an alternate reality we can create……..however….creation requires imagination, faith and above all the courage to move out from the known to explore the unknown. Our world today would be devoid of so many things if someone did not believe in them once upon a time…….like electricity, aircrafts, telephones, internet, telekinesis…..when they believed in these……they were driven and guided by the Universe for the Law of Attraction has always existed…….what you think about the most……creates your realities.

So, today ask yourself…..are you truly happy being who the world believes you are…….doing what you are doing and being where you are…if yes…..brilliant…..but if no…..then would you give yourself a chance to dream your dreams, sing your song, dance to your inner rhythm and take that leap of Faith. You have chosen this beautiful time to be alive on earth because you have a purpose………………find out what that is and live that purpose.

When I was first faced with rappelling down a 90 feet wet and slippery dam which ended in absolute rocky ground…………..I was certain that I SIMPLY cannot do it because I have a dislocated knee and I would not be able to keep my balance and secretly was afraid of what a fool I would make of myself………..I am so glad that I had people who pushed…………they pushed till I had to push all these thoughts out of my mind………however…..when they put the harness on and asked me to let go of the railing and simply put my complete weight on the harness….I thought this man is crazy if  thinks I would listen to THIS bit of instruction….he kept asking me to trust…..and I kept tightening my grip on the railing……..once again I was in the grim hold of my fears and I almost gave up. Then I heard my inner voice telling me….if I could do it….I could learn to let go and TRUST the process…………….and I DID. After the first few steps…..the exhilaration I felt cannot be justifiably expressed through words.

I know that thousands of people rappel everyday in much harsher and scarier places and this might be a simple task for them…………………..yet I know to me that day and that deed redefined my abilities and my faith in myself and the Universe. Incidently, that act not only brought out something New in me, it helped me release a lot of Old. It made me believe that everyday, there are new things which we can do or redefine our old things and there is always support available….we only need to believe and be on the look out for it.

So I say again…………….

You know there are many bends on life’s road….sometimes we cannot see what’s up ahead and our hearts are filled with fear and doubts….however ….if we choose to allow the bend to turn into an end then we would never know how far we could have gone….what all we could have learned….who all we could have met…..Life is a Journey….and only you can decide how far you want to go……………there is nothing wrong with settling down and not going further, as long as that is what you truly want and it gives you happiness. The question is……….. does it??

A Bend need not be an end…just a mere suggestion of a new turn on life’s road 🙂

 

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.

Light always dispels darkness

When was the last time, you saw the light not dispel the darkness………..No matter the darkness of thunderstorms, the mists, the fog or the night………it may have taken time to shine bright and clear but it did……….our Inner Guidance is like light…..through the thunderstorms of hatred, the mist of confusion and the fog of criticism and fear…..our Inner Voice shines through….. we need only pay attention and believe in our Inner Light.

I can bet my bottom dollar that if you rack your brains, you will certainly find at least a couple of instances where you are consciously aware of your  inner voice….it could be for something as easy as not to take a particular train or to call a particular person or something similar. I mean how many times have I heard people say ” I knew instinctively what to do or say”…well actually I have lost count.  So what do you think that was?? from my personal experience I know that when I say that I knew instinctively I was referring to something in my head telling me the way out.

There have been instances where my friends have told me that they knew instinctively how to fix an electronic device or while cooking, they had a brain -wave and they added ingredients which were not even mentioned in the recipe and yet it turned out super or while driving they knew instinctively which turn to take when they were driving to a new destination……oh!! the stories that I have heard.

What is funny though is that inspite of the accuracy of our instinctive call for action, we don’t seem to be able to put our faith in it. I guess it is because there are times where people feel that this voice has also allegedly given them wrong advice. In reality, we all have two voices which exist within us….one is the voice of our instinct or our higher consciousness and the other is the voice of our ego self. Now how we feel and how the message impacts us depends on which voice did we actually listen to!!! The basic difference is that what the Divine Inner Guidance tells us will never create fear, insecurity or any such fear based feelings with-in us where as the voice of ego will. Even when the Inner Voice guides us away from something, it isn’t inspired by fear……instead it is inspired by us moving towards something more aligned with our energy system and personal growth.

We need to understand that today we are in a much more evolved energetic phase of existence which means that we are on an accelerated path to self discovery which cannot happen if we do not attempt to listen to our inner voice. After all, we are blessed with our very own beacon of light….now all we need to do is follow the light. There is an endless expanse of possibilities stretched out just for us to connect to………..how long will you allow your fear to deprive you from finding out and connecting with your True-Self???

Love & Light & Smiles
