On Life Management.

Wisdom truly lies in the art of  management of two principles in life : one of never giving up and the other of letting go.

On one side is a dedication, discipline  and determination  and on  the other is the  dispassionate discernment and in learning to surrender to balance the ego within.  Every attempt at achieving such a state of balance can be a great tool for learning to evolve with the wisdom.
For life is to evolve and not simply dissolve

For life is to live and not simply exist.

Take the path of purpose in faith trust and belief

Flow along with the path of light in passion and dedication .

And allow life to manifest its infinite abundance.

 

There is an exemplary account of life lived in such a path of evolution and enlightenment

Sharing the great visionary  of India Swami Vivekananda’s  account of  life story in his  own words here  ….

 “When you travel on this path of shraddha, (faith) veerya, (courage ) smiriti, (that which is remembered) you have to go through three phases.  The first phase is Haasya (laughter/humour). People will make fun of you. Face them. Accept them. When you are taunted, reply in the same tone of haasya. Then slowly the inner consciousness starts evolving. Then comes the second stage ‘Virodha’.(opposition/ hostility) The same people will start opposing your stance – Accept all the opposition. Don’t fight with anybody. Don’t argue. The moment you get into the argument, then you are going to suffer. If you argue while you are going through lot of internal turmoil’s, conflicts and confusions, you will not be able to convince anybody. So, during the second part of sadhana, (dedicated practice)don’t argue with anybody. Convert the negativity into a positive fragrance and give this in return. Then comes the third stage of ‘Svekaara'(acceptance). The same people who laughed at you, the same people who threw stones, will do pranams ( respectful salutation)& accept you.

In my own life, I have experienced this but I had to pay heavily. Those who taught me became my students but only after I did tapas for 10 years continuously and silently. Understand one thing. Inner sadhana is not a revolution but an evolution. Revolution requires force, vengeance. Evolution requires love, humility and a great feeling of universal love. The consciousness has to evolve. This is an evolutionary process where the bud flowers. We have to allow time for the bud to flower. It will not flower in one day. It takes time. It has to receive proteins, vitamins and the necessary energy for all petals to open out. You have to have a great patience. You have to create an environment for the petals to bloom silently. This is Sadhana. “Swami Vivekananda

 

Any path of passionate dedication and discipline evolves you along in the strength of persevarance

To honor your path and vision is a task of a lifetime.

To steer clear of slack and sloth, lethargy and languidity  takes a  consistent mastering of the senses. 

To stay true to your chosen way and vision is a commitment  driven by your belief  and faith in your life’s purpose of being.

To know is to reach beyond the sensing of the  eternal truth of ones being . 

And  all the challenges happening along in the journey, will resolve in time on its own  as the intent and  focus remains unwavered.

 For life itself  is a spark of the divine consciousness.

On Philosophy & Science

Philosophy speaks from the core of consciousness of life, with a penchant for understanding the wisdom of being. And natural science was simply born of a philosophy that speaks of predictions and evidence. Of reasons and proofs. But science is limited as scientific reasoning cannot justify all the knowing in the sensing, and in the intuitivity.

One is a a matter of sensing and knowing
Another a matter of proof of the existing.

I believe there is much to draw and understand for both from each other as both are integral to opening the doors of awareness in receptivity with respect in the strength of their interconnects.

Life’s lessons.

Here is another share of my dear mother’s reflections on ‘Life and Living’ with hope and the value of ordinary things like the school subjects , the primary lessons we often take for granted as we study without  thinking too much about it. I am compelled to share this line of thought for its ingenuity and how it mentions the values of  lessons from nature which often is the most overlooked but actually so full of wisdom.

Don’t despair



Life is the real teacher. It’s teaching methods may sometimes be playful, sometimes  very harsh, and it may seem like there is truly no way of escaping them.

 

Profit and loss are not only money related,

They can be manifested in relations too.

The premium of love and care one invests,

Will return as interest manifold in days of need.
And certainly no scheme will tell it is too late to invest.

The more one adds smile and support

The less will be the worries and loneliness.

As they are inversely proportioned.
X and y denotes the unknown

Problems, that seem ready to pounce.

Don’t you  worry,

As you are taught to get them solved.
Every single point and  line

has a  measure and significance.

Geometry taught  us not to ignore any

and the value of boundary.
History gave the realisation,

Evil and greed perishes

How much ever strong they seem.

Always goodness stood in the victory stand in the end.
Geographic differences help too

To understand that variety is a way of life.

Your form and food is Nature’s decision.

Value the differences,  to be in harmony.

Biology
taught that all are one in the core after all.

Power of energies,

and laws of Nature gave the knowledge

To bow down and conquer.

 


Spirituality
taught the most valuable lesson.

The real enemies are the ones

that are nourished

as  ego, pride, vanity  greed, anger and hatred.

I reap what I sow.

So none is responsible,for my pain or pleasure.
Initial years are like blue prints.

But few read them correctly,

Even less understands,

Even fewer practice.
The primary lessons…


Are professors of Life.

Each subject taught

Are the preparations

For the life to be faced in essence.
Quantity of money to be possessed

Is not the measure of life.

The quality of love and respect

Is what distinguishes from the rest.

 

Never despair…

The variations  of Nature,

The constant changes

Makes every moment a new one.

 

And that can be the dawn.

New ray of  hope in the horizon.

Remember the lessons

And proceed further.

 

Never look back in despair.

Bring back the beam of smile

To fill the surroundings with joy and light.

As the world is truly vast to explore & delight!

Anjana

Circle of Thoughts 10

wp-image-2126591502

A vision a verse by Savvy Raj

 

Thoughts may seem powered by their own momentum 

A concentrated effort of combining thoughts

Perhaps connecting these dots

Is not a random exercise after all.
wp-image-761357839

 

Add belief add faith

add trust, some hope

The power to choose one thought over another

Is the intentional shift called a conscious choice.

Authenticity and Creativity!

The illusion of pressure a takes a toll on most of the originality before it even begins to take shape… At such times it is important to distinguish between what truly matters …. trust the source to come up with ingenious perspectives, which are simply an extension of the you -ness in you…. !!

We truly are unique and magnificent beings. Our modes of expressions of ourselves can be carriers of the magnificent and unique creativity that abides in us all….

Value Inspiration Value Creativity

Some simple thoughts on developing abilities to retain and revel in the authentic you …

Ability to listen to the sounds of silence as much as make sense of the apparent mayhem that may surround us at times.

Ability to appreciate the differences as much as the similarities.

Ability to connect with the most mundane as much as the most volatile thought exercising equanimity.

Ability to move beyond the complexity to embrace the simplicity of thoughts
Ability to value the necessity of the moment for itself without pitting in for a stake.

Creativity is a game of the choices you make of the resources within that gets out the authentic artistic in you ….a challenge by itself, in itself and for itself.Not a rehearsal show for a public adulation!

Ability to move beyond the need to prove is thus an important aspect in the creative flow…

Ability to be in this moment in the spirit of joy and celebrate the little developments in assurance and confidence that it is a precursor of the brilliance taking shape …!

And so much more ….But most of all the ability to be grateful and gracious in acknowledging all the inspirations that come your way to help you be you! They are your angels … and guides in the path of releasing the authenticity of you … thankfulness and gratitude unlock the uniqueness in you !.

Gratitude Rocks !!!
