Law that attracted me
Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
While meditating and steering my thoughts from ‘I’ need to do it all, to ‘leave it all to the Almighty’, evoked a question inside me, ‘What does it actually mean to leave it all to God?’
This opened the floodgates of more questions, ‘Am I giving up on myself?’, ‘Am I tired of trying?’ ‘Am I losing confidence in myself?’, ‘Am I losing the battle or have stopped fighting?’, ‘ Am I suffering from Dependent Personality Disorder (DPD)?’, ‘Is it blind faith in the entity of God?’ or in fact, ‘Is it my total belief in my prayers?’
So I persevered and carried on ruminating. I had to first adjust my mindset to the unbiased and truthful frequency in order to get a clear signal of my deeper thoughts. I found that at times I felt all the above ‘Am I’ symptoms – When the going gets tough, I can sometimes begin to lose grip on my self-confidence and even feel like I am losing the battle. It’s at this point that I shall pray with all my strength because I must have faith in my belief in my chosen entity of Omnipotent. This is the only prayer that has and would continue to rescue me in every battle in life. I must have blind faith, in so far as my confidence in the power of the Almighty is concerned. This blind faith, rather than over-confidence in myself, any day. After all, humility is the greatest strength with which to build an effective prayer, and gratitude is the loudest knock at God’s door.
So, it’s only human to feel weak at the knees sometimes, have a degree of fear in the heart, but as long as I have faith that I can rely on the power looking over me to render the help I need, I shall be alright. If this is a dependence syndrome, then I don’t ever wish to be cured.
I am sure, many more feel the same, at least sometimes, and think of it as growing a negative mindset. Please don’t. You are being a human being, and nothing can be more positive than that. ‘Leave the rest to God’, like you really mean it.
As with most years, 2022 too has been an eventful year of sweet but mostly sour incidents. From manmade disasters, like Ukraine- Russia war to natural calamities, such as floods in Pakistan; the passing away of queen Elizabeth of age, to the tragic and brutal killing of world music icon – Sidhu Moosewala in India; Global inflation surging, making rich richer while poor choose between ‘heat or eat’ this winter; and the list goes on. Nevertheless, there has been a stubborn glint of hope too – however faint, but definitely silver in tone, amongst the thick dark clouds: Covid seem to ease out this year, at least in most parts of the world-winter Olympics in China was testimony to human resilience against pandemic; Common-wealth games in the UK, FIFA World cup in Qatar, are few events which brought people from all corners of the globe to a common platform of entertainment, and other such events. But admittedly, most current affairs are wet blanket and the year was not the best in the history of time.
The most optimistic spark that escaped the wildfires of the year so far is the fact that ‘I am alive’ and that ‘you are alive,’ despite all the challenges. This surely demonstrates human resilience and tenacity. This is a befitting cause to be grateful to God. 🙏
Like every year, most of us enter the new year with hopes and dreams about what is to come, while celebrating whatever was left behind – cherishing the good memories and gladly going past the bad moments. This is how I say goodbye to the past and welcome the future.
No one jiggles at someone’s wailing, so, instead of crying about what is happening outside, close the doors, switch off, and relax in your own company. Time to recharge energy. Remember, you are your own best friend, confidante, and reliable support.
Once you’ve regenerated your body, spirit, and soul, it’ll only be a matter of time before someone would be attracted by the vibrations transmitting through your doors, and you’ll hear them knocking. Let them in, serve them a hot cup of your smile with cookies of laughter. Don’t worry, no one would suspect that you are infecting them with hope and mirth, but they shall catch the vibes. Loan out interest-free reassurance. Share your positive mindset so no one goes hungry for love. Let your warm kindness wrap around the hopeless in the bitter winters and may the cool shade of understanding calm someone against the scorching heat.
Charity is not always in monetary form; just being humane to others is the best gift to humanity. On that note, Season’s greetings to all, and may the new year be the beginning of world peace. 2023, be the year of manifesting hope.

Letters, texts, emails… so much unwanted correspondence that one can do without. You receive a letter from the bank that you’re behind with loan installments. Reason? You borrowed above your capacity to pay back. Result? You’re stressed.
But then credit card companies lure you through higher credit limits. Reason? You are too weak against materialistic temptation. Result? You get on the hamster’s wheel of exhaustion.
Brochures invade the letterbox with all non-productive offers- lawn mower when you don’t even have a lawn to mow, best houses on sale listed by estate agents, when you’re struggling to pay the current mortgage, etc., etc. Reason? You are addicted to consumerism. Result? You are frustrated.
You receive emojis in the name of communication from a loved one. Reason? Everyone is busy chasing their own tail and have no time for anyone else. Result? Breakdown of relationships.
There’s a reason why mail is also called junk. Result? We feel angry at most correspondence which constantly reminds us about what we lack; there’s mostly a lack of satisfaction, like when we eat a lot of something we don’t actually find tasty, and consequently, still feel hungry mentally, even though the stomach might be full. We blame the food or we blame the chef. Just like when we get frustrating correspondence we blame ‘luck’, or God mostly, for being partial to others. But the real reason for our unhappiness is ourselves: through the choices we make in life. Live within the means is not only a healthy discipline in life but also teaches us to find true happiness, which is not in buying more and bigger by taking out loans, or obsessively connecting with the faceless world on social media with no time left to speak to the loved ones properly, except to choose a pre-generated e-card and one thumb sends the generic wishes to all the friends and family at once. Real fulfillment is in organic happiness, which generates from the heart. When you have no debt, there is no stress. When you tame your choice, you get your priorities right. If you’ve taken a wrong turn, accept responsibility, and you’ll soon figure out the right way. Don’t blame the postman for the correspondence he’s dropping through your mailbox, as ‘you’ are attracting your own thoughts. Delete the unwanted messages in your mind, shred the non-productive letters your impulses keep writing, and make space for the new messages bearing good news. Tweak your thoughts, and change your life. This is true prayer, true worship. May God send happy correspondence to you this Christmas and beyond. Amen.

Imagine a packet of smarties breaking up, spilling all the different coloured little discs on the floor. That’s exactly what life is like – A bag of different shades of events. The trick to keeping life together is, ‘Not to let the precious little events spill and scatter’.
But we can still open the bag at the seal and take out whichever shade of life the moment fancies, and enjoy the sweet juices of sheer delight.
My blog overall focuses on spiritual growth with reference to the Law of attraction, but there are so many other tones, textures, and flavours to our experience on the earth.
Philosophy, psychology, the science of politics, sociability, religious affiliations, gender and sexuality orientations, etc., etc. are all organic threads that have woven the fabric of human life.
So, it’s important to debate about them, understand them, and share our experiences with one another.
Hence, from time to time I express my thoughts pertaining to one of these aspects as part of my blog under the heading of,’ Spills from life’.
It makes me feel real and free. As a writer, I can’t be restricted to one genre. In the coming weeks, months, and years I shall be sharing my forthcoming books in multi-genres- From Self-help/Spiritual to Romance to Mystery thriller – different thoughts, the same mind; the spills of my passion.
Enjoy every moment of life, every aspect – the fun and the challenges equally.
My passions & my apprehensions, My joys & my sorrows : Spills from the same lifeTweet
Let me start with defining the struggle between a mind and a heart here first – ‘My mind says I want more money…..my heart asks, ‘How much more?’
My mind has no answer except for saying, ‘More, and just a bit more.’
Heart cautions the mind, ‘It’s greed, it’s not moral.’ The mind dis-agree and protests!
The mind feels self-righteous because it believes that it has been ‘god fearing’ all its mortal life, has not thieved, has tried to face all the problems with resilience, have marched on as a brave soldier- come what may, have helped others and made them a priority over itself, told only innocent lies, worked hard all life, suffered pain in silence…..The mind goes on and on until the heart slaps it to shut up and listen.
Now the debate takes a new turn.
Heart quietens the mind and says, ‘You needed to connect with God, not fear him – Fear projects false belief. You shouldn’t have ‘marched on’ the path you didn’t agree with – it’s important to choose the right direction than continue to walk in the dark. Self-sacrifice is synonymous with self-pity. You shouldn’t talk just to please others; your words are the mirror of your thoughts. Asking for help when in trouble, is not a weakness but common sense. God helps those who help themselves.’
Now, it was mind’s turn to shut the heart up, and shout, ‘ Ok! I understand, but don’t go on to put me down since my attentions were good.’
Heart smiles because the mind has understood that all the misconceptions about its beliefs had coated its vision with layers of negativity, so much so that it couldn’t see even its own desire clearly.
Heart spoke softly, ‘ Take a deep breath and answer again- ‘Do you want more money?’ ‘How much more and why?’
The mind had calmed down and answered, ‘I have some – Thank you, Lord. With his grace would like just enough to tidy my life up so I don’t have to worry about my necessary obligations when I pray. I don’t want any more than that.’
The heart hugged the mind and they both uttered, Amen!’
Moral of the story- It’s not always what you think is, unless you feel it too. The heart or our subconscious, and the mind or our conscious, have to be in perfect harmony to walk on the right path to reach the blessed destination. This is how a positive mindset is created.
