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!!!

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!!!

Never say Never

Robert Sternberg received a C in his first college introductory-psychology class. His teacher commented that “there was a famous Sternberg in psychology and it was obvious there would not be another.” Three years later Sternberg graduated with honors from Stanford University with exceptional distinction in psychology, summa cum laude, and Phi Beta Kappa. In 2002, he became President of the American Psychological Association. NEVER say NEVER ♥

Charles Darwin gave up a medical career and was told by his father, “You care for nothing but shooting, dogs and rat catching.” In his autobiography, Darwin wrote, “I was considered by all my masters and my father, a very ordinary boy, rather below the common standard of intellect.” Clearly, he evolved and more importantly he never quit. NEVER say NEVER ♥

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.” – Confucius  

Do not allow anyone to take your dreams away because your dreams are actually the Divine Path that guides you, propels you, drives you to be who you truly have the potential to be. It is the journey to find the destination which has all the lessons, love, pain, thrill and finally a breakthrough…………do not give it up for anything!!!

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.

By Max Ehrmann

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

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

Beautiful Words

The Four Reliances:

First, rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;

Second, rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;

Third, rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;

And Fourth, rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions.

It is better to conquer yourself Than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, Not by angels or by demons, Heaven or hell.

With gentleness overcome anger. With generosity overcome meanness. With truth overcome deceit.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

Perceptions

Perceptions are like clothes…either they make you feel good or uncomfortable……choosing the right ones is what creates that difference. Do we choose because others do or do we choose because we believe in our choice. We can either say My Perceptions choose and define me OR I choose my Perceptions and I define them…..What do you say and are you comfortable with your’s?? ~ Celestine Rhythm

There are two ways in which our perceptions take birth. One is – in life we very often get carried away by what people who are close to us believe in and often adopt them as our own perceptions OR the other way is when we create our own perceptions by learning to examine the cause and effects in our lives…… now this largely depends on our experiences.

Some examples of Perceptions: “If a person has a certain body type only then they can be agile or not” , “If you want to win, you have to be aggressive”, “Unless you prove your supremacy, people will take you for granted” or on the other end ” You should keep quiet if you someone is screaming at you else you will further aggravate them”, ” The best way to show your love is by accepting what the other person wants from you at all times” and the third kind, ” If you want people to respect you, you need to respect them”, ” The solution to all problems in life is Love”, “Everyone acts according to the best of their abilities at a given point in time”.

Oh! there are a gazillion perceptions whether adopted or created which become beliefs in our life and then we live by them. Like everything else, our Perceptions can add value to our lives as well as deplete value from our lives. What we need to understand is Perceptions create beliefs and beliefs create our realities and the sooner we begin to questions our beliefs, the sooner we will be able to create our own realities in which we can thrive. One thing that needs to be mentioned is that even if our Perceptions are adopted, we have seen it work in some way or the other for it to have become part of our mind. Then what we really need to determine is whether the Perception that we have allowed our mind to believe, is it limiting us in any way?? If you tend to feel uncomfortable, unfulfilled, scared and most of all if you hear that teeny tiny voice telling you “Something’s not right” (this last one will most certainly make you feel disconnected with yourself)………………then it’s time to start examining your Perception which obviously is the seed that sprouts the Beliefs which gives birth to the Reality…………now the obvious question is how???

Well I started by increasing my awareness…..so right after I would do something which triggered any of those feelings, I would ask myself….allright what was I thinking right before taking that step….was it my thought or did I adopt it…either way what had happened to allow this thought in my mind. I got all kinds of answers….some were on the lines of ” Well, my parents, friends or a close person always believed it and it worked for them so I believe it too” and some other were on the lines of ” Actually, it is easier for me to believe this and this helps me makes sense of why this happens or doesn’t happen to me” while the first one did not make me feel great, it is the second type that took me a while to reconcile with….. as it meant that I was either scared to face the Truth or that the Truth made me responsible of an action that I did not want to be responsible for.

I am not saying that this is an immediate fix but it is that proverbial “First Step” only this is the real deal…………..the literal First Step.

We will often not even know why we do certain things…only that we do them……with employing this practice of questioning our thoughts which always precedes these actions, we begin to examine that elusive “WHY” and once we find that out….it’s simply accepting it or discarding it. Like any habit, our thinking patterns will also take time to change but with the right focus and training we can change those Perceptions which limit us and replace them with the ones that makes us feel whole, happy and most of all connected to ourself. This will help you claim your True Power, Your Inner Power which helps you to  create your realities.

So if you have been reading this and some images have been flashing through your mind, I urge you to start with this practice …………..the best part is you can keep the ones that work for you anyway……………only discard those which do not fulfill you. You are the best judge of that as this is your life and your journey.

Smiles, Hug and Love

The Light is Within

It is amazing how quick we are to judge and condemn the world around us and yet we shy away from accepting what truly needs to change within us. What we see around us is nothing but a reflection of what is within us. If we do not have insecurity within us then we would not be bothered by insecurity because our vibrations would not match and therefore won’t allow that match.

Once we begin the best and the most intriguing exploration ever of ourself, we automatically become more patient, empathetic and reflective. Then even if we view let’s say an episode of insecurity, we would be able to understand that whoever is experiencing or creating insecurity has a lesson to learn which can only happen when they are ready therefore we can empathize with them as opposed to judge them for their behavior. The best that we can do in this situation is to just to make them aware of the situation and be there because they will choose to understand only when they are ready and Trust me when the Student is ready, the Teacher appears 🙂

The best way to prevent war is to visualize peace within and around……truly the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step and the transformation of any world begins with the transformation of self.

If you want to awaken all of humanity,

Then Awaken all of yourself.

If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world,

Then eliminate all that is dark & negative in yourself.

Truly the greatest gift you have to give is that of Your own Self-Transformation.

~ Lao Tzu
