Sharing nuggets of wisdom by my mother

If we walk on a thorn slipper , however soft the pathway be, we will be in pain. Neither we nor the path or surroundings , only the thorns are the reason for our pain which do not let us enjoy the other beauties of journey.

The negativity in our mind are like thorny slippers. If we have negativity in our mind , whatever be the situation, the accumulated negativity will not let us enjoy & will make our life miserable for both us & others surrounding us.

Our mind has a habit of searching and storing such negativities, making a strong imprint in the brain. To come out of it is entirely on individual’s efforts .
Our thorny thoughts & the chain of memories it brings along has to be cut off by our intentional effort to remember the pleasant & positive thoughts that gives us joy.

Momentary change is also the capability of the mind if we intend.
After all everything is transient in this life. Pleasure or pain, how long it will last is not in our hands. But the effort to make each moment happy is something we can try.

Spoken words and harsh actions cannot be taken back. We have to be careful with the words we utter. Do not get carried away by the momentary emotion which will make us regret later.

Peace is what everyone seeks.
Sound will not come with one hand. No one is without fault. The sadness is everyone of us thinks we are perfect and others are faulty. There lies the problem.

Another way is putting ourselves in other’s places & think what I would have done in such situation. May be we may have behaved worst.

Letting go of the past should be a continuous process. If we want peace, mere knowledge is not enough, consistent practice is necessary.

If our vision is not clear the fault is not in the eyes or the visuals. Just cleaning the accumulated dirt on the glass will make everything clear. Start cleaning the tarnished memories.

Remove the spiky slippers, cut off the horns , fangs and claws that troubles you . Bring out the positivity and the goodness in you.

No one to be blamed. Destiny sometimes puts us in hard situations without our faults. But That too will pass in its own time.

Patience & faith are the need of the hour. Compassion & kindness we give ,will come back to us when we need them.

Remember the saying. Happiness is as inside job.

Live happily & peacefully.
Have a blessed life.

  1. I’ve always believed that we have the power to be happy or sad, regardless of the outside situation. It’s just that it definitely is much easier said than done. Lovely reminder here. Thanks for sharing!

    How Wise Dear
    Savvy All That’s
    Left to Do is
    Spread Your
    Mother’s Wisdom Farther
    Surely More Evidence Where You Come From..:)

    And Now A Few Words of How “Yogapedia”
    Describes An Origin Of Your Mother’s Name:

    “According to Hindu mythology, Anjana is the mother of Lord Hanuman, otherwise known as the “Monkey God.” Although Anjana was an aspara, a female spirit of the clouds, she was cursed by a sage to take form as a monkey on earth. Despite this curse, Anjana was a pure and devoted being, and was ultimately relieved of the curse through the gift of her son Hanuman.”

    “During her time on earth, Anjana married a vanara chief named Kesari. Since the couple remained childless, Anjana prayed to become better and repay her karmic debt for the curse. In doing so, Anjana symbolises the universal strive to liberate the divine from animalistic suffering.

    Her devotion is rewarded by the immaculate conception of Hanuman. Vayu, god of the wind, delivered the divine power of Lord Shiva and Parvati to Anjana’s womb, and so Hanuman was born as an incarnation of Shiva. Hanuman’s monkey-like features are attributed to Anjana’s status as a vanara at the time of his birth.

    Anjana is a powerful symbol of the struggle between spirituality and earthly reality. In the tale of Hanuman’s conception, the inner divine mother is trapped in animal form by her own karma. Through penance and devotion, she is able to relieve herself of this suffering; a timeless moral to an ancient story.”
