In every job that must be done there is an element of fun. – Mary Poppins (album)

There is generally a mental aversion to the word must. We tend to resist what we know we must do. Everything in life has a process. We have to be on a journey before we reach the destination.

The destination is nothing but a picture of future painted by our imagination. We shouldn’t treat the moments which are taking us ahead as hurdles to be crossed. Each moment deserves our love, attention and respect. Likewise, each small step towards our destination should be enjoyed.

We need to carry the sweetness and hues each moment brings for us to complete our painting. Just by an intention to drop the resistance and an intention to discover fun in each step the painting will become colourful…the arriving will become meaningful.

This day on let us affirm: *This moment is filled with joy. I choose to experience the sweetness of today. – Louise Hay* God will join in the fun.

Healing the World

In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it. – Marianne Williamson

Howsoever big or deep the wounds may be, the power of love and peace can cure everything. It is the allowing and not withholding of which can do the healing. We should allow love to flow incessantly. Blocking it creates pain.

We shouldn’t be afraid to express love. Love is what we are born with. It cannot be exhausted. Fear is what we learned from the society after our birth. And its antidote is present right in our hearts…in our ability to love.

Peace, like happiness, is a choice. Peace is equally powerful as love. A decision to choose peace and express love can bring about miraculous healings.

To conclude, I would pray as Marianne Williamson does: Dear God, please send me the Spirit of Your Peace. Then send, dear Lord, the spirit of peace to all the world. Amen.

Have a peaceful and loving week ahead. God is present in peace. God is present in love.

Enjoy The World

If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. – E.B. White

This is thought provoking. How should we really live?

Aha! Got the answer. We would feel torn if we considered ‘improving the world’ and ‘enjoying the world’ to be separate desires or goals. Unless and until we accept the world as it is and until we think that it is good, we cannot improve it. ‘Cause only good can become better. Bad can get worse.

We cannot improve the world by finding flaws with it. Our perspective has to be one that sees things as good and then locates the areas which can be developed further. So, enjoying the world is the first step to improving the world.

I intend to enjoy the world from this moment on. Are you joining me? God is already on board! 🙂

Happy Women’s Day

Good morning, my dear friends!

On this Women’s day I wish all the men and women a life of freedom from ignorance. Men who supported women’s movements had risen above ignorance. They strived for women’s rights and freedom because they had realised that only a free woman can truly contribute in the complete growth of man in particular and of humanity on the whole. Men and women are two complementary halves of the same species. Both have their unique qualities. Men and women can never be equal. They are not supposed to be. They are supposed to be free. They have the freedom to lead their lives the way they desire. We just need to remove the limitations put on the freedom which is rightfully theirs.

Freedom is not something we can give. It is something we can enjoy. Freedom is the mother of all other values. Even love cannot exist without freedom. Cherish your freedom. God has already given us ‘free will’.

The Object of Aspiration

If the aspirant takes one step towards the truth and god, the totality takes ten steps to meet him. – Vimala Thakar.

Aspiring always unfolds the path to reach the aspired. What really determines the quality of our journey, however, is the object of aspiration.

All other accumulations and accomplishments will remain behind when our Soul decides to change form. Only the truth travels with the Soul.

A simple desire and an honest intention are sufficient for moving in the direction of God or truth. The Totality that is Divine awaits for our intention. The moment we release an intention, we experience an accelerated pace of growth.

To quote Osho: Whether or not you reach the truth, but the quest and path make life richer and fuller.
