Check points for Soul Degeneration:

Now-a-days we go for health check up plans to check the functioning of our physical body. What about the internal health check up and check points? When our internal soul energy depletes we do get various symptoms such as arising of various negative emotions such as jealousy , anger,hatred , insecurity etc.

Presence of these symptoms should immediately be a check point for one self and indication that one’s soul energy or the reservoir of internal energy is getting depleted and needs an immediate replenishment.

First step towards treatment of any ailment is diagnosis . Once we have see the symptoms of soul degeneration in us we need to immediately break ourselves away from external world for sometime and work on ourselves and our internal health. Some of the techniques that can help us in soul regeneration are
• Reading good books that empower our souls and give us wisdom and knowledge on the working of life.
• Meditation makes us calm and serene which helps us to understand the things in right perspective.
• Music and art forms that we love doing also give us a nice break away from the things that are troubling us . After a soothing break we can come up again with a new perspective on the things and new thoughts.
Best wishes for all of you for your good soul health!!!

THE FEAR FACTOR


Fear is the greatest weakness in this world. Fear initiates many vices in this world. Fear of loss of loved ones, fear of loss of so called social image, fear of loneliness, fear of future etc.

Fear may lead one to paths one wouldn’t have normally traversed . Fear has to be dropped as early as possible otherwise one day one would wake up and realise that one has traversed too far on the path which one shouldn’t have traversed at all.

Drop all fear . Fear leads to the bondage . Fear leads to chains unseen but, constantly restricting oneself.

Liberate yourself . Feel the liberation from all fear and pain. Fearlessness is LIFE , fearlessness is BLISS and fear is LIFELESSNESS .

Life Lessons learnt from Driving :

Driving a car and real Life are very similar – a THOUGHT

Driving a car is the practical implementation of the lessons we are taught on how to lead a LIFE.
Lesson 1 : When we are driving a car we need to keep ourselves focused . A little shift in focus may lead to a mishappening. Same way in LIFE we need to focus on our GOALS , a shift in focus can lead to missing our goals.

Lesson 2: While driving we are required to look forward although we occasionally look back from the rear mirror while stopping or changing lanes. Same way in LIFE as always said LIFE IS LIVED FORWARDS AND UNDERSTOOD BACKWARDS. We can occasionally fall back for the learnings we have learned in our lives when we are changing the course of our lives or at the point of taking very important decisions in our lives. But , we can not lead our life backwards.

Lesson 3: While driving we need to calm down our brains as aggression and restlessness disturbs our mind and hinders the smooth driving of our car. Our mental state reflects on our driving – calmness inside can be seen in calmness outside and aggression and restlessness inside can be seen in restlessness outside. It’s always seen that people who lack patience or are restless inside keep on honking unnecessarily and are rash drivers. So is in life too . We need to learn the skill of keeping ourselves calm for the smooth flow of our lives. Restlessness and aggression may lead ourselves as well as people around us into inconvenience .

I feel that one should learn to drive so that one can practically correlate the driving to life.

All about time

Today why the clock is moving so slow?

Scenario 1 :
If we are busy doing something in our lives and are enjoying doing what we are doing ,time flies off like anything. We feel as if day is too short and we could get some more hours in our hands. It is a good parameter that indicates that we are enjoying our lives and we are enjoying whatever we are involved in.
Scenario 2 :
If we feel time is not passing and day is too long, we need to step back and interrogate ourselves to find why is it happening. This is simply an indication that we are not doing anything constructive in our lives to keep ourselves busy or we are just not enjoying what we are doing. So, let us redefine our lifestyle and incorporate more of activities that we enjoy doing.

There are some activities which need to be done as basic requirements for our day to day living and whether we like it or not they need to be performed. So , why not start enjoying these activities or renovate to make these activities more enjoyable.

It all depends upon ourselves as to how we well want to spend our lives.

Everything said above can be summarised by the famous saying,” Add life to your Days and not Days to your life”.

Good luck for your happier lives !!!

Liberate yourself:


To be oneself is very liberating. There are situations in one’s life when one pretends to be someone else just to make people around oneself happy or to by pass an unpleasant situation or may be to downplay somebody else ,but believe me pretending what you are not takes away the joy of freedom , the joy of simplicity from you.

It requires a lot of inner strength to be oneself in all situations. People who pretend to be whatever they are not are very weak people. They live their lives in the shackles of slavery of the image projection and never ever live their life in true sense. The joy of simplicity is different. It’s OK we can’t always be correct or we can’t always be a super hero.

Let us enjoy being whatever we are.

I wish you good luck on your journey to liberation !!!

Happiness is a Skill : Give this a thought


All about happy and lucky people

One should always try to surround oneself by people who are considered to be happy and lucky in their lives.

Leading a happy life is also a skill. It isn’t that people who are happy have everything flowing smoothly in their lives. It is the way they handle the bitter situations in their lives. They know how to surf the rough waves smoothly. They are highly skilled people.

It is one thing that being in good vibes we too catch good vibes. But, one more face is there to this and that is being in the company of happy people we also can learn their skills.

Good books and good and happy people are assets in one’s Life. So , go ahead lead a happy life in the company of good people and good books.

Best of luck for your happy journey !!!

All about SELF CONFIDENCE

What is the safe level of confidence a person should have?

Self Confidence is very important for a person to take a meaningful stand in one’s life .It is good to be Self confident but, being over confident and under confident both are detrimental.

Just like food taken in right dose is good and is necessary for the proper functioning of our body. But, both over nutrition and malnutrition are bad for the body. Both of them create diseases in the body. The nature of diseases caused by them may differ but, disease is a disease.

Over confident and under confidence both blur our thinking in the same manner as the presence of too much light or too little light blurs our vision. Presence of clouds in the sky obstructs the vision of the sun. Likewise, when we are overconfident or under confident our clarity of thinking is obstructed.

Too much or too little of medicine is bad. We need to take the right dose of medicine to get cured and we cannot take over dose or under dose.

It is very important for us to understand the boundary between Self confidence and over or under confidence. Now the very important question arises ,”How do we know whether we are not crossing our boundaries ?”. When this line is violated we tend to make more mistakes or there is loss of focus and stability in our thinking. As soon as any of such things start happening in our lives we should take some time off with ourselves to assess ourselves .

How will you handle a specially challenged child?


I happened to chance upon the question, “How will you handle a specially challenged child?” . This question itself aroused a lot of thought process inside me – is it about handling a specially challenged child or is it about bonding with the specially challenged child?

Specially challenged children are not be handled, but , bonded with at a different plane . This was a strong thought that overwhelmed me at that moment . It is a very subtle fact that needs to be understood when dealing with such children.

If the child is specially challenged and is not able to cope up , then we need to bond with that child at a different level of understanding – A level that the child can understand. This bonding is at different plane – a plane common to both the communicator and the child.

Once the bond is developed with such children at a mutually agreeable plane they can come up in life. The key is to catch the rhythm of the child . He is different and he beats the music at a different frequency. We just need to catch that frequency and overlap our music with that frequency so that amplified result can be generated.
