Being in charge, always

Is it possible to deliver something when we are unhappy? I’m afraid, not. Even if we do the output would not be correct. It’s very essential for us to be in a happy frame of mind, always. Emotions like anger, envy, hate and others rob us of our natural essence. By that I mean a constant state of joy. When we are happy, we have a light feeling about ourselves. And this is naturally the state that we should be in. Else it may affect our health and relationships.

I agree that it is very difficult to maintain a state of cool always. Because there will be things that make us negative. I’m sure we have the awareness when we are getting that wretched feeling all over. My advice to you, once you notice it, is to calm down. Take two deep breaths and feel better. Now think of something that makes you happy. Let that emotion fill you. Now relook at the situation that made you unhappy in the first place. You will soon notice that you can easily handle any situation, however grim it may be.

You can’t stop the rain, but carry an umbrella and don’t complain. In the same way, whatever unpleasant that comes your way, face it and choose your response. Consciously say that this thing is not going to affect me. Switch away from that script you have been running in your mind, every time you face a difficult situation. Do not let anger or other negative emotions take the control. Quietly say to yourself, you are in charge.

Conquer it step by step. The basic thing you have to remember is awareness. That makes the whole difference. Understand clearly, what makes you uncomfortable. And also identify what is your normal reaction to it. Weed it out. Program yourself to get into the happy mode, automatically. Soon you will realize what you have been fearing is a figment of your imagination.

Be an individual who is aware. Know yourself first to know God better.

The purpose of our life

Do you know the reason why we live? In one word, it is God-realization. All of you may not agree with me. So here’s the reason. In the beginning before the Big Bang, there was no space, no time – only a consciousness pervading throughout the universe. We may call it God. This power was all knowing and everywhere. God knew that he was God, but did not have any experience of it, in the sense that he wanted to experience his grandness.

So he began to create - others. So he could experience himself through them. Thence came the big bang and the creation of time and space. In the book of ‘Genesis’ , the reference is ‘And God said let there be light, and there was light.’ He kept on creating and still does. When light was created, so was darkness. When love was created, so was fear.

The need for duality, is to experience one, we need the other. The spiritual parts of God also divided into pieces and entered everything known. In us, this part is the soul. The soul is a part of God hence it’s only need is to realize itself, which means to experience itself. The highest grandest feeling that we have, it craves for, because it is a part of God.

There are 3 aspects to our living. Thoughts, Words and Deeds. Everything that we have felt with our senses is a result of a thought that had originated somewhere in someone’s mind. Words are the second means of communication, more powerful than thoughts, because they can be felt. But words are all metaphors and cannot be a substitute for feelings. The final – deeds or action is what makes us realize the feeling. And hence it is the most important.

Somebody may be a good thinker or a linguist, but unless he/she experiences the thought or the word, the cycle does not get completed. Hence it’s said, dream as high as you can. Express yourself in words. And feel it. Because finally that is what matters to you. Which means to your soul. Which means to God.

Now do you agree that realizing (feeling) the creator of this grand design is what it’s all about?

Best Felt,

Who am I ???

Who am I? Has this question ever bothered you? Well, there are millions of us who are seeking an answer to this age old question. You are not a body with a soul. In fact, you are a soul trapped in a human body. As a soul you have rights. Universal rights. You are entitled to all that is there in the universe, provided you understand these empirical rules:

Law#1: You are the child of the Supreme Principle. That is your lineage.
Law#2: All around you are your siblings, be it animate or inanimate.
Law#3: You should treat others, the way you want them to treat you.
Law #4: What is good lasts forever. What is bad is temporary.
Law#5: What has been created will be destroyed. The only part of you that will be left behind is your soul.
Law#6: Time is an immutable principle. However, it can be transcended.
Law#7: You don’t own anything in the universe. At the same time, everything in the universe is yours.
Law#8: Your final destination is naught. You have already arrived.
Law#9: Like a circle which does not have a start, you have always existed and will always exist.

No matter what your name is or whatever part of the world that you are in, you are destined for greatness, much beyond your expectations. Do not confuse greatness with fame, as it is the realization of yourself and your self only. Once you realize who you are, there is not a single thing you will find in the whole of the universe that is as precious as yourself.

Gold may glitter, diamonds may sparkle, but the light that your soul emits is pure light - A light without a blemish, a light that is colorless like water, an invisible light. You are here to realize that and spread that light to others, so that they may also realize theirs. This light is the light of love beyond goodness and surpasses everything that you can conceive of.

Give obeisance to this love. There is nothing else to be discovered.

Life I love you

As life takes us through its meandering ways, we have to keep being at the helm, strong and sound. Otherwise like a ship getting hurtled in a storm, we will waver. Although there is no guarantee that there is a lighthouse nearby, we must hold firm to the belief that there will be. It’s just a matter of time till we find the goalpost, but mind you, if we listen to others to find our way, we are lost already.

Listen to your inner voice. It’s the best guide that you have got. As the voice promulgates through your innards, know that you have found your mission. It may come as a bolt from the blue or as a leading edge egging you on towards something bigger. Understand that this is the secret beckoning you into action. And then like they say ‘Get on with it’.

To start with, remove worry from your list of negatives. Trust in God that he will help you find your way. Once you have made up your mind on what you are going to do, plan it out. And then get into action. There is no looking back. If you think, what if I was wrong, well, you will be left with some learning behind you. Also note that there is no path without adversity. Face it. Do not call it quits. Resilience is the name of the game.

In the end you will find that your life served a purpose far greater than yourself. You were not begging at the doors of destiny. You have mastered it. A life truly lived is a life truly learnt. A sage is not a well learned person. He or She is one who has found wisdom in their lives. For that you don’t need esoteric books. What you need is a dream by your belt and the courage to live it.

And remember, enjoy your journey …

To your success,
