Live Life Lovingly!

Appreciation matters!

A good word or a kind deed

As a response than just a reaction

Sets off much goodwill in the river of time.

Appreciation is an evolved response .

To appreciate without fear or favour

Is to understand the value of life.

To appreciate is to sense this human need.

Of the joy of the interconnects

Between life to life , of seeing the positive.

Appreciation can come from nowhere

But it is the seed for self improvement

Giving the value of recognition.

When appreciation exists

Kindness and respect manifests

While it nourishes the spirit, life flourishes.

5 Tips To Breakthrough The Rut of Routine  

Rut of Routine

Are you feeling you are living a routine life

You get up and you do things mechanically without a trace of being alive to it.

Do you feel life is boring and just another day to rise and do your duties as a chore?

Do you sometimes wish for the day to end before it even begins?

Do you feel life is too complicated and desperately want a change of scene…

Perhaps then you are passing through the path of nowhere.

Life often hands you wisdom at the time you are in the path of least resistance because it wants you to listen keenly.

It wants you to understand you are your own path maker and path breaker, you are your own teacher and tutor.

You are your best friend and guide.

It wants you to sense the futility of living so that you can finally bridge over and honour the living you. And perhaps then strive to nourish the moments of life left with you willingly.

Going berserk in helplessness, sensing pain or loss and loneliness are part of phases we may all move through…. at some point in our life. The choice is with us how to find ourselves than lose ourselves. Some find solace and comfort in others along the path when the going gets too tough. Some are givers and some takers in the interbeing of life and living And travellers we all already are.

Here are 5 steps you can take to shake free from the rut of routine.

1: Work on Self-observation:

Observe more of your environment. Develop healthy interests in the world you are living. Care to understand more. Be open to learning.

2 Value & acknowledge one another:

Many times life feels like a standstill and as if its caught in a rut of routine and mundane because it is truly how one is living. When moments are given value over things, when people around start to matter, life starts to change and evolve for the better. Make an effort to greet people extend polite courtesies without expectation and acknowledge another as they are. Life starts to transform vividly as you start showing interest.

3 Love your self & cultivate gratitude:

Balance the relationship with yourself and others. Show self-respect and care to love the person you truly are. Cultivate the habit of being grateful for the blessings of life …. it holds you in good stead.

4 Trust yourself more:

Develop your sense of self-worth and self-esteem as you value your thoughts you will learn to trust yourself more in your deeds.

5 Share more. Reflect the positive:

As you learn and engage with the world you will come across much that inspires and intrigues you. Share the positive messages from the universe and send the world your goodwill in care.

Someday when you truly need, the world returns it back to you manifold…such is the way of this circle of life and living as we are strengthened simply is raising of our positive interconnects as travellers in the interbeing.

Lessons from nature!

Green and saffron
colors of prosperity and detatchment.

One leads to attach,
One to detatch.
Both gives fulfillment
One externally while
the other internally.

Both in abundance.
No force , in free will.
Selecting the path is in our choices.

Anjana

Above is a photo I took at my home in my terrace garden which invoked an interpretation from my mother Anjana this morning.

Green for prosperity (green earth full of hidden treasures), saffron is for detatchment (color code for sanyasam or renunciation).

Sharing this as it speaks so simply of the juxtaposition of balance in nature that abounds. In colour, form, shape etc in all perspectives of life and living.

Paradox of Emotions

Every moment is a cornucopia of sensing
Fleeting thoughts in the making
Feelings and emotions reveal themselves.
Between action and inaction

And in the stillness in between
Like the ebb and flow on the tides
While at times amplifying & complicating situations
By tilting the tuning of the body and mind.

Sometimes overpowering almost self
defeating
Sometimes compelling to release the stress withholding
To ease up the being & free up some space
Between thought and action.

Think of your emotions
As a bridge in between
To pause and reflect a while
And then to respond.

Respect your self and own your emotions.
For all your emotions make you, you.
Feel good that you can express
In so many shades and tones.

Emotions are interlinked
In every moment of life and living
All the while authenticating and revealing
The person you truly are.

On Thinking

Expansive & Inclusive thinking.

The importance and impact of thought on humanity cannot be denied. Positively steered thoughts transform lives and create transcedance

Similarly aimless thoughts lead to stagnation. And negative thinking is a road to self destruction. Repression and suppression of thoughts through force and coercion can has harmful effects on the entire personna.

Educating the mind and heart with the power of rational thinking and clarity on topics like humanity and ethical living , natural laws of being , of the larger purpose of being than the self creates a conducive platform for steering the young minds towards self introspection and contemplation in self reflection and awareness.

For instance subjects like philosophy, psychology, sociology can be introduced in high schools along with other mainstream subjects so discussions on morality and ethics of being and humanity at a much impressionable age. Students showing interest can then be given options to advanced exploration.

Every subject has its own charm and significance, In fact including these subjects will help still a restless mind and induce tolerance and patience in thinking and relating.

In doing so the next generations understanding of the relationship of the self and world and it’s interdependence in the strength of the interconnects improves amidst the introspection.

Our world needs understanding in expansiveness and inclusivity more than ever… it needs governance by leaders who value response over reaction.

Aflame In Purpose

A sense of purpose is necessary for your wellbeing as much as your success.

For purpose conjugates a direction than an aimless wandering.
To consolidate with a focus, is to connect yourself to your own existence.

It’s a knowing that you can direct your energies to fruition

Amassing your experiences towards self expression.
That gives a meaning to your very being.

In such a practice the purpose is reinforced.

Strengthened by the force of intention.
All in a dedication to connect with the core of being who you truly are.

Envision Beyond

 

We shall have our moments of dancing ecstasy

We shall have music of joy beyond the melancholy.

We can cure our self of intolerable distress and worry

We can seek beyond and envision peace not as a possession but as a practice.

We can envision beyond the pitfalls of pain and pleasure

See in nature a mystical purpose greater than  the self

Understand the spirit of life beyond petty interpretations.

And value the building of character

We know that what truly is, is what really counts!

Intelligence must question materialism.

It must have confidence in itself and respect its connection with evolution.

We can value art for art’s sake but go deeper to acknowledge the uncertainties of creative justifications.
