Dealing with Conflicts

Conflicts in life can be resolved by understanding the perspective of affected individuals. Only then can the efforts be sincere and effective. The source, inspiration & goal of such efforts should always be Love. #WedesdayWisdom

Solution to problems

Problems and conflicts are a part of life. Often we get stuck with them and don’t look towards finding the solutions. The way out is to shift your attention away from them and focus on the solutions.

How Should You Celebrate Navratri ?

How Should You Celebrate Navratri ?

So today is the beginning of one of the most auspicious festivals of the Sanatana Dharma ( Hinduism),’Navratri.’ Apart, from the rituals and traditions will be aboded by at everyone’s place, I would encourage everyone to have a deeper experience during this Navratri.

Navratri is considered to be the most auspicious and powerful time in the universe. It is the time when positive vibrations are at its peak. It is the time when you should sit down for sometime and get in touch with the universal source. Do some meditations, listen to chantings, read or watch some knowledge videos ( even if it’s just a verse).

Ours is a generation which is very ambitious. We have big dreams and big plans. This makes it necessary for us to have the experiences that make us move forward to realising and executing these. This can happen only through meditation. Meditation gives you that peace and contentment which brings forth creativity and efficiency. Our Pujas use and honour all the five elements ( air, water, earth, fire and space.) This symbolises the aspect of harmony and respecting every creation of the universe in our traditions. Much beyond the rituals it’s about celebration. Celebrating the diversity in the creation which merges into the universal. Our eyes and our senses make us feel and experience the diversity, closing down our senses sit down, relax and meditate. This makes us experience the universal. It’s such a beautiful and serene experience that you would fail to express it in words.

Some of you might be away from home and might not be able to be a part of the celebration back home. There is no need for you to feel disheartening. You can just meditate and take a dive into the celebration, wherever you are. So this Navratri not only just do your Pujas, fasting and rituals but also meditate and get in touch with the universal source.

Become a Pearl!

Become a Pearl!

Have you ever seen a piece of natural pearl? How wonderful it looks! It makes one admire the beauty and the essence of this white piece of object.

You dip the pearl in a mud, or throw it on the floor, the pearl has the strange characteristic of never loosing it’s charm and identity. Whether it is put together in a piece of thread to form a neckpiece or put inside a glass box, it always looks admirable. It’s environment, surroundings or the vessel it is kept in might change but it still remains the pearl of wisdom and truth.

This is exactly as to how we as individuals should be. We have made our lives revolve around concepts, trends and notions. These are very vague and opaque which make us fail to realise about the vibrancy of life. Whatever the situations, or opinions of people around you maybe, you should always stay in touch with the real you. A pearl does not try to become beautiful or magnificent, it is the very nature of it. So, don’t try too hard to be beautiful, or adorable. Realise that you already are and be natural.

So what are you waiting for?

BECOME THE PEARL!

Best Will Come To You

Best Will Come To You

Often we get disheartened at not getting what we desired for. The wise thing is to always ask for what is best for you from the Divine. You may always be asking for more money but there might be an unending dance of love and joy with a little less of money, waiting for you.

Life is much larger than our small cravings and aversion. There is an ocean for us to embrace, so why should we settle for a well or a pond. Have faith and belief that this life only the best is going to come to you.
