WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN?
This is one question which keeps haunting us every now and then. We are afraid that our worst fears might come true. We cannot let go of these haunting thoughts and tormenting images.
WE ARE ALWAYS BLESSED
If something that we wished for comes true, its a beautiful gift. But if things dont go our way even then its a blessing. Remember that if you are on the right path you will get divine support and if you are heading in the wrong direction you will get divine correction.
THE PRESENT IS THE POWER OF LOVE
I was watching the beautiful epic Mahabharata where Lord Krishna says,” The sorrow of the future engulfs the joy of today but the happiness in the future does not diminish the pain of today. Learn to live in the present.”
So truly said. The only moment when we can feel connected to the divine is now, the only moment when we can hug someone is now and the only moment when we can embrace divine love is now.
MY HYGGE MOMENTS
I am in great distress as of now. But late at night when my family sleeps and I am away from all the drama, I put out the light, light an LED lantern and read a few pages of my favourite book, journal in peace and consciously spend these moments as a sign of living in the present.
DISTRESSING THOUGHTS HARM THE PRESENT
Its true that the haunting thoughts about the future, memories of mean comments by people and incidents which just dont seem to get out of our memory disturb our present moment.
Yes, it hurts and we just cat stop worrying. Here is my mantra to dissolve painful thoughts-
GIVE UP ON JUDGEMENTS, CULTIVATE COMPASSION FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS, FORGIVE, SEND LOVE AND SURRENDER.
This is the only thing that works. Yes, it wont happen instantly. Some days are just going to be off days. But with practice, you will learn this art of love.
