Some say that the earth is healing while the plague is ravaging the mankind. May be in a simplistic way but I’d opt to differ as there’s a lot more to the act of Nature. We all are nature’s children, the birds, the reptiles and even the humans, however misguided their choices have been. But Universe is the parent of all the living and existing beings. So, suffering of its children can’t be healing for the one who bore them to life. Yes, the Universe is teaching the misgiven human sapiens but every time we deviate from our path the Universe comes finding us to guide us back on track. Universe is just being cruel to be kind in the long run, as any parent would tell you. The sooner we learn our lesson the quicker we get off the naughty step. We are in a shipwreck, where the man-captain has ordered to steer towards the iceberg. If any of our fellow beings who are letting us down, are the ones who sow the seeds to all this evil harvest- the imperceptive politicians and the befuddled money dealers! I have been disheartened and almost scared of some of their sinister plans amidst the plague aimed at saving money at the cost of lives. If the airline is grounded the chief would order the poor fleet to handle the virus without PPE or even training, while the bosses work from the safety of their homes, Representatives of the public push men and women to dare the plague in the name of being the key workers, while shamelessly asking for a monetary compensation for their own confinement to safety, and there are many more examples of such brazen actions by the immoral so- called leaders of the society all around the world. Well-being of a common man can’t rely on such soul- traders, but in the honesty, brotherhood, patience and determination in an average heart in every home, in every street and in every nation. This is an opportunity, the only time for the faceless men and women to get that recognition not for the medal of manmade gallantry but in the form of blessing from the omni-Sovereign, the Universe. Our hope lies in true chivalry of character, like Captain Tom, the key workers and every being that honestly clap in solidarity and gratitude to them. Mother Universe is testing her children, we must rise to her expectations this time. Restore our humanity and jump the sinking ship of capitalism as the shore to salvation is closer than we think. Our mother is suffering too to see her children hurt, so hurry and help to put an end to this global misery by believing that humans are humans so long they remain humane. Let us submit to the benevolent will of God rather than follow orders of the bumbledom to our own graves. Join me to light the 26th candle to our redemption.
Our world has come to a grinding halt. I am a witness to this disaster movie, streaming at me from all directions, I am intrigued watching the live news coverage, listening to our prime minister and other more alternative takes on this extra ordinary pause our earth has decided on. Yes, I know there have […]
I remember watching a documentary about a man who had predicted a plane crash that killed everyone on board. He claimed that he knew it would happen, because he had dreamed about it. On several occasions he had frantically called the airlines to warn them, but was of course not taken seriously. He had a […]
God made heaven of this earth, with beautiful creatures sharing its peaceful bliss. Then the man was blessed with freedom to make a superior choice between the cunning of mind or the innocence of heart. Man chose poorly and many of the God’s creatures were eliminated for fun, for greed and ego. Man also killed senselessly his own. God has now chosen this time to announce his justice. The cunning of man has been challenged by the might of the Omnipotent. It’ll take greater efforts to appease God. There is no time like now for a sincere remorse and amends. Wake up before the choice is withdrawn. Submit your selfish immorality to salvage your soul. Stop socio- political wars and build peace, Stop profiting from death and sow seeds of life, Stop bigoted small talks and embrace humanity, Stop abusing the earth and show respect. Then, submit to the belief in the benevolence of the ONE true power in this universe- the Universe itself. Only sincere remorse and honest amends can appease the Maker we’ve so betrayed.
Once upon a time, there was a slow-witted man in a remote village in India who was harassed by people and afflicted with name callings, such as, scatterbrained, nutty and woodenhead. But he was called with one name consistently, Pagal (mad). It seemed that misery was teasing him too- he was an orphan and was like a puppy in the street, just looking for two things in life- refuge and food, since love was an alien concept for a life that had tough row to hoe. On one cold night of winter, Pagal entered the village temple for a warm shelter in a quiet corner but the priest had him thrown out. The superstition held him as a cursed soul and a bad omen for others. The temple priest told everyone that only the blessed souls can enter the temple and he didn’t want a deranged soul to cast a shadow on the holy idols of their favourite deity, Vishnu, who is believed by Hindus to be the god of preserving life and protector of the universe. So, Pagal was banished from the village. A few days had passed when an elderly man passing by saw Pagal sleeping in a warm cuddle with a dog in the street. The old man smiled and put his hand on Pagal’s shoulder, which woke him with a shudder, afraid that another cruel hand might want to cause him pain again. But when he saw a friendly glance emitting a loving glow on him, he sat up in total shock. No one had ever smiled at him with kindness. The old man said to him, ‘ Son, don’t be afraid I am not here to hurt you.’ With these words he took out a rolled paper pack from his pocket and unwrapped a few rotis ( kind of pancakes) with pickle and offered it to Pagal, who accepted the roti and tore it into two parts- one for the dog and one for himself. They both savoured every morsel and while Pagal thanked the old man for his kindness, the dog wagged his tail in appreciation. The old man asked the poor outcast his name and said, ‘ I can feel pain in your eyes and I also know that you are a brave person to have endured so much for so long, and still hold no malice in your heart. You have not forgotten gratitude and kindness. You are not the pagal, it’s the villagers who are mad. From today your new name is Himat ( courage) and I’ll give you your very own god, who’ll save you from all perils so long you believe in it. When you want to call him, just think about him with closed eyes and he’ll help you.’ Pagal was very excited when the old man took out a stone and handed it to him. ‘Always keep it with you. This is your God now. You don’t need to go in to the temple as your Deva (deity) has come to you.’ With this the old man went away and Pagal kept the stone pressed close to his heart. He built a tiny heap of mud as a temple and placed the stone on top. Every night after the village would go to sleep, he would sneak in to the village hunting for food in the waste bins and whatever he could get he would share with his dog and thank his god before eating. It wasn’t long before the villagers came to know that Pagal had built his own temple with a mound of earth and he even has a magical stone that he calls his Vishnu. The villagers marched behind the priest to confront him for his blasphemy but saw him in deep meditation besides the holy mound of earth. The priest thought of a brutal plan. He asked villagers to get straw and arranged it around Pagal before setting it ablaze. The whole village stood there with heinous expectation and the sky suddenly changed – dark clouds roared and lightening struct down many villagers including the priest while the rain smothered the fire. Just then Pagal opened his eyes and saw many villagers dead around him, which brought a tear to his eye. Seeing this, the villagers asked Pagal for forgiveness and protection. He smiled and said, ‘ That Pagal has long gone, what you see here is Himat now. My Deva has taught me the essence of life- don’t lose your belief or compassion as god exists only in an honest heart. I am a mere servant of my master, Vishnu. Only he can protect.’ They all prayed to the stone, the god, for mercy and the sky became clear again. On that day, Himat was made the priest of the temple and only the old man’s stone was worshipped as the true image of Vishnu. I don’t need to deduce the moral of this story as it’s clear. The stone is not important but it’s your belief that makes it the God, Belief gives us courage, Belief brings compassion, Belief invokes blessings and only Belief can protect us. May I conclude by saying that the message of Law of Vibration is exactly the same- Believe in your desire and that will raise your vibration to a frequency where anything can be manifested. Let us all put our belief in the Universe and the protection for all humanity will emerge from this faith. I’ll light the 24th candle in hope.
When you get down to the nitty gritty, there are only two emotions. Love creates appreciation, joy, happiness, trust, peace and acceptance in the unfolding. Fear creates negativity, control, worry, mistrust of life. Love is light, love is freedom. Fear is power. Fear controls. And we get to choose where we direct our thoughts. I […]
I walk into a room Full of white and lanky walls Then another… and another… And soon the first one felt quite small. Once I reach what appears to be the final room, I look inside a mirror But the ghost looking back at me Her face– it’s not so clear. Her eyes […]
I know it’s scary To dream too high, To think too ahead in the future. But if that is what you really want, Then fly, dear. If you fall, I will catch you. I know it’s nerve-wracking To actually take that leap Of faith and everything you have. But if that will make you happy, […]
Today I touched the bowl of water with the tip of my finger and it sent a ripple through the container. It looked just like on the holiday video where my son tossed a tiny pebble in the Udaipur lake and it stimulated the entire water to expand into a dancing circle. What’s common here? It’s the vibration that my hand and the pebble created. The whole universe is vibrating incessantly at a set frequency and that’s exactly what each life is – a vibration. Everyone’s vibration pulsates at a frequency. What it means is that every individual has his/her own thought pattern ( our vibration) that creates a ripple of feelings and when this ripple ( or frequency) aligns with the frequency of the Universe, we connect with our maker- this is what it means by ‘becoming one with God’. It’s our vibration that sculptures our life. This is the grand plan of the Universe, laid out through the Law of Vibration. Let me elucidate this concept further. When we really feel our thoughts, it sends out a signal to the recipient of our feelings, which some refer to as telepathy. You must have heard the expression, ‘Love at first sight!’ It means that a chain of communication starts entirely through the vibration of a thought that triggered an intense feeling between the two people mutually. Similarly, when we actually feel our meditation intenselywithin ourselves the vibration of our very being reaches the highest frequency. How do you feel meditation? Well, people have diverse experiences, but I can only quote my own here. I have felt the goose pimples, felt as if in trance, feeling physically numb, and I think now you’ve got the gist. This is the spiritual state one must achieve before even contemplating manifestation of our desire. I would like to define the concept of meditation which, in my views, is not necessarily an immobile body stance in a lotus position with eyes closed- although grounding yourself in a yoga sitting posture is an effective way to calm your mind. Reference to two of my previous blogs might answer a few more questions here: ‘Meditation technique that worked for me’ & ‘You must establish WHY you are meditating.’ However, during the lockdown even though we have the right time to practise meditation, many of us might struggle to find a quiet spot to focus at home with the entire family around all the time. In such a situation I would connect with the Universe through my silent thoughts while life is humming around and no one else even suspect what I am thinking about (: I often get this feeling of elation deep within when I look at the sky. No matter what the other family members are getting up to, I’ll stand by the window and just look at the blue airspace, which, for me, symbolises tranquillity, freedom and contentment. This state makes me feel connected with my inner peace and hence with the divinity itself. You can have a different spiritual stimulus because the focus is getting that telepathic communication going with the Universe and this would be the befitting moment to thank the universe to manifest your blissful wish. In our normal day to day life we congest our mind with a hoard of thoughts about how to win every man-made race. So, now is a chance to reflect and take advantage of the quarantine to practise the meditative state of vibrational elation. Carry on practising and raise your vibration higher and higher, and soon what was your last aspirational point will become your next starting point. You would know when you have raised your frequency – once you find yourself smiling without even realising, you feel excited despite the announcement of the lockdown extension, when you don’t feel angry even though a family member has said something annoying, you feel free inside despite in isolation, you feel hopeful despite the plague ravaging your town. At every level of vibration, don’t forget to wish for your own protection and that of others by the Universe. There is no limit to desire but one at a time is a steady rule to success. Believe and feel aligned to the frequency of the Universe, and your life is manifested. Time to light the 23rd candle to fulfil our wish for a peaceful planet with healthy living beings.
