Mother, the essence

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” – Abraham Lincoln

A timeless subject for poets across cultures, across ages. Mother, the essence. For continuity of life as we know it.

We know that knowledge and wisdom is propagated through the teacher – disciple connect. The mother – child connect is far deeper. This relationship lasts lifelong. It’s deeper than a bond. And more often than not, words fail to touch the deep essence of the connections.

J.K. Rowling related this as a protective shield which stays with Harry throughout. But isn’t it true for every mother in every form? The one entity in the universe who cannot ever think anything wrong for her children.

We owe her everything! But, we take this for granted. No ?

Then there is mother earth. Our living mother, from which arise all living creatures on this planet.

We owe her everything! But, we take this for granted. No?

Once this is established, we should also understand that all consciousness ( souls ) arise from one singular entity. Somewhere in this vast universe  trillions of stars and planets. Every galaxy, every star, every planet, every speck of dust. The one entity which is mother to everything. How can that entity ever think of anything wrong for us. Whom we sometimes refer as God. But we never realise what is God.

We owe her everything! But, we take this for granted. No?

Let go …

Everything happens for a reason. Acknowledge that. Accept that.
All the past events that occurred have culminated to bring us to this moment, where we stand today.
Once more. At a crossroads. The perennial question. Choice. Always. Over and over. Again and again. This or that. Here or there. Why or why not. ‘To be or not to be’.
All the moments that have passed. Making choices. Deluding ourselves to believe that it is our choices which brought us where we stand today.
What if ….
we choose to let go,
we will ourselves to move on,
we consciously release the control,
we detach from the desire of outcome,
we relinquish the right,
we accept ‘Whatever will be, will be’.
Could it be that what happens next will be different? Is not letting go, a choice? Moving on, a choice. Releasing, a choice. Accepting, a choice?
Whatever we believe, the power to make a choice is a conundrum, humanity has to live with. Ergo, the only thing that remains is whether we make the right choice. The beautiful twist here is that inherently, each and every one of us, knows right from wrong. And at every given moment we can truly choose the right over the wrong. Alas, humanity has coloured itself in so many layers of separation, cloaks of biases, we have started believing everything is about me, not we. I not us.
We need to trust in the process of life, that there is a favourable wind that will steer our ship correctly, when we let go.  As men are meant to be sailing the river of life, not stay anchored at the Port.
No matter how dark the situation, let us always believe in the voice, inside us, to make the right choice. And everytime you trust that voice, you make the right choice. And with each right choice, the voice gets stronger and your ship moves forward. In the right direction. Towards the true goal.
Sometimes all you can do is accept there’s not much you can do. And sometimes all you can control is how well you let go control.” – Lori Deschene

Today I choose life

The mind is a search engine.

Our memories are the data bank that is being searched.

The words we input, return the memories associated with them. When you type in: depressedlonelyunhappy, etc., all those memories are retrieved and this is what you experience.

From today, choose what memories you want to recall. Then input those words in your ‘Search Engine’. Try words like “happypeacefulpowerful, etc”.

See the result for yourself.

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.” – Kevyn Aucoin

Be In Control of Yourself, Be Realistic

Our moods are caused by things around us like the behaviour – of other people, by situations – mostly not under our control, by our expectations – at times unrealistic, and also by external influences – the media and other biased opinions. The fast pace of life often means we have no time to appreciate the beauty among us.  In all this running around, we forget to stop and look around. To see and appreciate all that is beautiful, nice, right and beneficial happening around us.

Be Realistic
Can we not accept that we cannot control anyone or anything ? That the only thing under our control is ourselves. That the correct thing to do is to be realistic. That the ancient indian principles of spirituality will always hold good.

Accept the fact that
– everything that is, will happen, whatever we do to alter or change it.
– every person we meet is for a specific purpose and reason, there is no accident or chance.
– events will occur only when the time is right, neither earlier nor later.
– whatever has happened is past, let it go and move on.

Since there are events we cannot change, look for the benefit they have for us. When we get involved with fears about the future, we miss the chances that the present offers us.

Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life.” ~Marilu Henner

Bring Joy Into Your Life

“Everything that’s really worthwhile in life comes to us free – our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our intelligence, our love of family and friends and country. All of these priceless possessions are free.”
~Earl Nightingale

Think about it. You can lose all of your money and start over. If your house burns down, you can rebuild it. But things that cost you nothing, you can never replace.

One of the most important keys to self-motivation is to clearly identify your core values in life. You must decide what matters most. Why the need to identify your values? Many people think, “I know what’s important; I don’t need a list to remind me.” What they don’t fully understand, however, is that those core values will often serve as critical guides for making important decisions. When they’re in doubt, your core values will cut through the fog like a beacon in the night.

We all know there are many distractions along the road of life that will try to pull us away from our values. Sometimes we are forced to make difficult choices. But a good rule of thumb is that when you have to sacrifice material possessions for one of those “free things” that life has given you…you’ve made the right choice.

The idea is simple, but so many times a simple idea can resonate with your soul, and you think….”That’s it. I’ve never thought about it quite that way!”

Engage the brain and heart. And … focus on the priceless “free things” you’ve been given.

Bring joy into your life.
