Jokers in the Circus! Voela! ;)

Image source: YouTube.com


Many a times when things do not seem to be working as you wish them to; when an angry voice inside you instigates hate and revulsion burning the inner matrix of your being; when you are motivated rather by a powerful malice towards situations which also gets manifested on people around you; when passion cripples all that is good in you and dances around in your head asking why every single time and why every single time me? ...

Just then pause...

Ney! Reflections or sermons become so blurry at such times when you are motivated by raw passions...

Then what?

Try sattire. Yes, just look at the situation as if you're looking at a circus and all the people involved including you are but just some odd jokers playing their part. Be creative and just have a good laugh at the devil who thinks this is all really crucial. No it is not. And it surely is not going to kill you as the devil proclaims it to...

Eh! Just a circus. Smirk, shrug, enjoy the show while you still have the costume of joker on...

And then smile and just move on...

Someday later, you might be able to even laugh at what seemed to put you off completely...

*Discovering Self Love*

Image Source: Addicted2success.com




Embracing our box of choices is the first step to a groundbreaking love because love starts from accepting and loving ourselves. That being said this one sentence can take a lifetime of work. And it’s OK.

We should not be deterred with the overwhelming and demanding work associated with our discovery of self love. Things worth having solicit us to work and work incessantly. Understanding self love in the right way is crucial because most of the times we confuse it with the defensive love for ego rather than recognizing it as a gentle forgiving love for the ever present soul which gets buried under the layers of ego. When they say love yourself, it doesn’t mean love the shallow trivialities which are but not you; it rather means love that deep and fathomless part of you which knows the distinction between your ego-self and your soul-self.

Love your wounds and love your scars not because you are proud of making mistakes and falling over and over again, but because you are aware even in your falls that you will rise again, because this love will go into your wounds and scars and it will heal you.
Accept yourself not because you don’t know any better, but because you understand that you are trying; understanding and accepting, precedes the change that you will ultimately be able to witness however long it might take.
Be patient with yourself when you see yourself getting trapped in old patterns again and again, not because reality checks should be ignored, but because you can relentlessly keep to the chase by trying unendingly.
Tell yourself that you are beautiful, not because you want to balm your vanity, but because you have to be as tender to yourself as a loving mother to her child who never fails to see the beauty in him/her.

Give yourself time and don’t compare your life with that of the others. They are going on their unique life path and you are going on yours. There are endless stars in the universe, some start shining when others are about to die. We are all on our specially curated paths which are designed exclusively for each individual. The events of ones life may not make sense in someone else’s and that should never be a reason to doubt or castigate ourselves. Half of the misery in life arises only because of comparison when in reality we are not meant to be compared. We all shine in our own time and we shouldn’t worry too much even if that takes more than a lifetime. Divine promises are never broken and if we are lost, lord will lead us to the way where we shall find ourselves shining in our inner light.

Believe in your gut and listen to your calling. Be faithful to that tiny little voice inside you that manages to find its way to you despite all the noise of negativity springing forth from fear, comparison, vanity and conceit. Pray and don’t let this voice die. This is what shall lead you to the path of self-discovery. We never invent self because we just have to discover it which is hidden beneath the many layers of stubborn dirt accumulated on it.

If you think your life is harder than others, don’t get bitter. Strength of character can’t be forged if we just keep reveling in spring, it requires sweltering heat. It is just the kind of grilling you need to evolve and shine. So don’t get attached to your sorrows and miseries. Just feel those to transform those and you shall come out better and brighter.

Teach yourself each passing day that life has no set rules or formulas.  Two plus two is four and one plus three is four as well. When you find your life not going according to established norms of society, tell yourself to never lose heart. Always walk with your head held high, even when the world looks at you as a misfit. Never forget theirs is not the only way and nor is yours. We are walking on the different paths but in the end we shall arrive at the same place. So, keep going no matter what.

Everyday get up in the morning and feel a wave of self surging from your bosom all the way up to your mind and reaching your entire body. When you will learn to love yourself with such conviction, all fears will dissolve and the doors to divine love will open.

Never ignore the importance of self love. It is not a selfish thing; it is rather something that will deliver you from selfishness. It will lead you to divine in yourself and burn all the invisible bridges you have built around yourself.

"Love yourself."

Who Are You?



You are an evolution of billions of years

interspersed into
an abstruse network of nerves and fibres
carrying the cosmic current of love
in your arteries and veins which contain
red colored ocean flowing beneath the crust of your skin composed of a magical plethora of millions of cells
each of which is a tiny universe in itself.

You are not just a walking and talking piece of flesh made to appease, oblige, submit, bend, stoop or bow down.
You are majestic with the power of multiple universes resting in your cells which are composed of heavenly magic.

You are a living miracle.
You are a masterpiece.
You are the magic.

You are love.
The absolute power
which binds the universes.

A Letter to Me from Myself




Dear me,

To start with, I want to tell you that I love you. You've got to believe me. Believe me like the earth believes the sun; a belief that every single day without exception, it will be showered in the loving light bestowed on it by the rising sun.

I know the testing times you go through. I know the lack of love you sometimes feel. I know the hollow that creeps into you sometimes. But let me tell you that you're never alone. I am with you at all times till eternity. I am you and you are me and we are both love. I want you to remember this. I reside in the deepest corner of your heart where there is an inexhaustible fountain of love and from this fountain you can always drink.

I want you to know that I believe in you and I've reasons to believe in you. I've seen the demons lurking in around you, trying to lure you in and I've also seen the good fight you have always put up. I've seen you fall in your weaknesses and I've also seen you rise up again with all your strength. I've seen you losing your head, committing felonies and I've also seen you redeem yourself and choose the course of righteousness. I've seen your scars and I've seen the stardust glow on the surface of those scars. I believe in your heart and I expect the best out of it; because I know it to be capable of its loving best.

I want to let you know that I find you beautiful. I know you get bothered by the ratios and proportions sometimes. I know you feel insufficient sometimes. I know there are some days you feel terrible waking upto those devilish pimples. I know you struggle with self esteem on some days. But I want you to know that you are beautiful inspite and despite. Every inch and every ounce of you is beautiful. Your beauty lies in being you. There are no absolutes of beauty. You are beautiful in your strive and in your struggle, in your defeats and in your victories, in your chaos and in your symmetries. You are beautiful in your own unique mess.

Lastly, I thank you for being you and I thank you for being me. I thank God for our inseparable loving relationship. You are the light and I am your reflection. I am you and you are me and we are both love. I love you.

Yours,
Myself

Adios 2017! Welcome 2018!

Image Source: Loi Pinel
Life is a long journey and each year is a milestone. So, we are almost past the milestone of 2017 and just about to hit the milestone of 2018. As we are ready to set foot into 2018, there are things I want to remember in 2018. I really want to mug up the list so I won’t keep forgetting and here goes the list:



Image Source: Pininterest
Give a little more credit to myself:
I have a problem of not giving myself credit enough for anything I ever do. To confess the problem is the first step towards fixing it. So yes, I have to agree that I need a little more of self worth and self appreciation. Whatever I do is always lesser for me than what someone else does (even if it's the very same thing or may be even actually lesser). So yes, I've got to change my scales. We all have seen that poster of a cat seeing itself as a lion in the mirror. My reasoning faculties have always contested that what good does it do to lose the sense of realism and seeing yourself as more than you actually are. But this year I make this conscious decision to be that very cat. After all, it is about believing that you are more than you appear to be; it is about believing in yourself. And come on, the world will not fall apart if I give myself a little more credit and a little more appreciation. If not me, who will?

Stop blasting and start pouring:
I have a problem that I have a lot of aggression in me and I don't even know where it comes from. I have fire inside of me. It’s a tendency I have no control over. I get hysteric sometimes when things do not seem to be working and I lose all the calm and poise. And even when I am not hyper or rude or aggressive, sometimes people mistake me for being so. Sigh! I need some voice modulation! Sometimes, my intentions are like so benign but my tone of voice will not leave its headiness. I feel so envious of people who can make the bitter lashes sound like honey laces. I am just the opposite. I can make the pleasantries sound like harsh and corrosive. So this is what I have to work on. And this is one hell of a job for me to stop blasting and start pouring.

Knowing when to stop:
I am blind to fine lines. The fine line of respecting others's opinions and taking them as a sacrosanct gospel, the fine line of readjusting my priorities for someone and toppling the entire list upside down, the fine line of  the desire to maintain cordiality in relations and forgetting my own dignity in the desire to do so, the fine line of believing and foolhardy worshiping. I even forget the fine line of me being me and someone else being someone else. I mean I am not a magician who can fix things for people. I can try to help but I cannot heal on someone else's behalf for them. It’s not my job to work on someone else. My job is to work on myself. I have learnt and I am learning and I will keep mastering the lesson of knowing when to stop in the incoming year.

Doing what I like and keeping it simple:
I have a hidden flare for making things sound more complicated than they really are. We all have heard of this I guess "log kya sochenge ye bhi tum hi sochoge to log kya sochenge?" And I am so one of those people who thinks on everyone's behalf. Why should I concern myself with all that burden of what he/she/they/you think about me or my life or my choices or my idiocies or my whatever? More than 90% of times we are not even a subject of people's thoughts while we are making ourselves the villains/clowns of their minds. And here people like me ask ourselves a hundred questions even before posting our thoughts online. So, the mantra has to change with the changing year. Keep it simple and do what I like to do.

And lastly,
No Judging of my own-self and being kind to myself:
I cannot say it better than Marianne Williamson has said it already. And here is what she says,
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?'
Actually, who are you not to be? 
You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. 
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we subconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
We should never let our skewed judgments stop us from doing what we want to do. And this is what I want to remember in the coming year. The quote by Marianne Williamson that I shared above was shared by a college senior (whom I never knew personally) on a bulk mail years back saved long in my inbox and here is the beauty of it all: I don't know how big or small the impact may be. But the words do make an impact. I don't know how many of the people in that bulk list read the mail, I don't know how many thought it through and I don't know how many drew inspiration from it. But here I am who still remembers this quote and finds it a beautiful piece of inspiration. So, if I am not getting a lot many likes/comments/reposts on my written word, it doesn't matter. What matters is may be someone out there has drawn some inspiration from my words, and even if it is just one, it counts as the real impact. And this holds true not only for words but for every other material and immaterial contribution as well. 
So, the coming year shall be about less judgment and more kindness.

*Self-Love*


Image Source: Huffington Post

Lately I was watching the movie Diana inspired from the life of Lady Diana. There’s a dialogue in the movie I instantly fell in love with. It was when Diana suffers a break-up with Dr. Hazrat Khan (A Pakistani Heart Surgeon) after trying her all to make it work. She lets herself be wallowed in misery and sorrow until she collects herself back and makes a decision to go on a trip with Dodi. It is at this point her confidant Sonia asks her if she is fine and if she is not making this decision out of her loneliness. The response of Diana is what struck a chord with me instantly. She says, “I don’t feel the need to be caught anymore; because, I am not falling anymore. I am flying..”

It must not be without a reason that love is always fallen into! A free fall with a faith that our beloved will catch us.
And when that beloved fails to catch us? …                                              
Well…It leads to heartache, pain, sorrow and misery…Does it not?
Would it not be amazing if we could love ourselves so much that we would be capable of flying?...So if no one is there to catch us in our fall, we’ll simply fly in the parachute of self-love…
So much we have been programmed to keep searching for love outside, we have actually forgotten to look within and nurture the self love which is the source of any other love.
I loved the way a strong idea is entangled in the subtlety of this simple thought. “I don’t feel the need to be caught anymore; because, I am not falling anymore. I am flying…

May all of us fly in self-love! <3

*Love and Gratitude*


IMAGE SOURCE: Paperless Post

Lately, i am in the process of developing the habit of saying thank you for all the tiny little joys of life that so often are taken so for granted. The morning sun, the chirping birds, the water to drink, the food to eat, the house to live, the friends to cherish, the family for support, the new hope for new day, the smiles, the laughter and even the tears to make me strong.

Every single thing deserves my gratitude, my love. And this is why i have decided to be say thank you each day to remind myself what a beautiful life i have been blessed with. 

We are always running a race in our heads, never living fully in the moment, rushing back and forth meddling in the thoughts of past or future; and this thoughtless running makes us thankless for the simplest things we are blessed with.

If tomorrow there is an earthquake or a flood or a draught or any kind of natural calamity; and we are stuck in the middle of it with a ruined house, no food to eat, no water to drink and no loved ones left in the world, what shall we do then? Shall we be able to fight the nature to give us our all back? 

Such is the magnitude of our blessings; but we fail to count them since we never got a minute to spare and thank the universe, the nature and the source. We take the little things and tiny joys so for granted like we are entitled to those. I am walking on the road and I see a crippled person walking on the road and a thought crosses my mind that i am thankful for a perfect health and working limbs. But am i entitled?  No, none of us is entitled. We are all blessed.

This is what i want to remember for the rest of my life that i am blessed. Whatever turn my life takes, i have immense number of blessings to count and be thankful for.

And here, i want to take this opportunity to thank my blog and all the people i have come across here. Thanks to everyone who ever landed here, thanks to everyone who shared their valuable comments and encouraging words. Thanks for being a blessing. I love you all.
