Sensitive

To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. – Anthon St. Maarten

Sensitivity is a great quality. Those who can understand with hearts are truly alive. In my opinion, faith and sensitivity go hand in hand. Those who lack faith in the Divine are fearful, insecure…always scared.

They are so busy securing their lives, rights, possessions and interests that they can hardly sense the pains and pleasures of fellow humans. They are very suspicious. They are the ones who criticize everything that doesn’t suit them. They have lost the ability to see beyond appearances.

My words may sound judgmental. But, the aim is not to judge. The aim is to remind…as Dr. Hew Len says: If you can feel it, you can heal it.

If we think that the world is in a bad shape and needs to change, we need to understand the problems. And understanding is impossible without sensitivity. We need to listen to people open mindedly. We need to learn to analyze our patterns or thoughts which disallow us to be more accommodating and helping.

What do we truly aspire? Is it not peace and harmony? Is it not love and joy? Is it not health and prosperity for all? We may get a sense of satisfaction to accomplish our personal goals and dreams. But, when everyone becomes part of the prosperity, we are truly fulfilled.

Sometimes I think, I need a spare heart to feel all the things I feel.- Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos

Let us live. Let us be sensitive. It’s Divine.

Achieve Happily, Not Happiness.

You have everything you need for complete peace and total happiness right now. – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer.

I know. I know. This is hard to digest. But, then what is peace and happiness all about? Doesn’t that mean acknowledgement? Doesn’t that need acceptance?

I do not intend to say that we should not have dreams, desires, goals. We can very well be, as Ben Sweetland puts it: ‘Happily Discontent‘. We may choose to be happy and grateful for whatever we have right now and then act to enhance the joy or even to share the joy. Fulfilment of our dreams and desires can just be the sources or means of expansion of these feelings. “Achieving happily and not happiness.”

The secret key to success in any area of our lives is ‘Joy’. If you take off from this feeling, you will land in the same feeling. If you take off from a feeling of unhappiness, neediness, or desperation, you will land in those feelings. There are no crossroads. But there are tunnels for us to transform at any moment in between the journey and thus redirect landing.

Even if we have started off from a place of need, we can transform the feeling to enthusiasm or exuberance. We can convert the nature of our goal from ambition to expression. Is this why people say, ‘Happy Landing’ when we take a flight? I guess so! Let this Monday be the foundation stone in building not just the week ahead, but the new year soon arriving. God is equally excited!

Spectacular Indeed !

“If we look both ways before crossing, if we learn to share, if we hold hands and keep track of each other, if we walk and don’t run, if we quit pushing and say we are sorry when we do, if we clean up our messes,and if we stop fighting with our brothers and sisters – we will get to grow up and our future can be spectacular.” – Robert Fulghum.

I believe,

If we stop withholding love and care and extend to give greater share ,

If we drop ruthless killing and learn more and more ways of healing,

If we leave worry and anxiety and just trust in nature’s bounty,

If we let go living in the past and NOW opt happiness to last,

If we quit pursuit of perfection and look with greater affection,

If we ignore things that annoy and create more context for joy,

If we stop fearing God at once and embrace the new ideas immense,

If we shed off tendencies that separate and let Divine Oneness to flow and operate

We will truly get to grow up at speed and our future will be Spectacular indeed.”

Smile

A lot has been said about smile and the power of a smile. It may sound cliché if I ask you to smile today. Yet, I would say – try it. Smile today. Smile more often than you usually do and experience the magic!

A smile contains a shade of love within itself…and you know that love heals. Love heals broken hearts and covers distances between hearts. A smile has the power to mend and to amend. A smile can comfort and console a weeping soul.

So, go ahead and give a smile to everyone you meet today. Do not apprehend cold responses. Do not expect reciprocation either. Be generous. It will cost you nothing. In fact, if you are conscious enough, you will notice that it brings you gain in some form, tangible or intangible.

Just smile !

Wake up !

When was the last time you felt truly happy?

Hey..did you think about this? Then, it is a serious matter.

The answer should be an unequivocal “NOW“.

On what have you made your happiness conditional….any event, someone else’s happiness, any achievement, or money?

Drop all the conditions and be happy NOW.

We don’t need a reason to be happy. It is our ABILITY, not a goal.

Don’t try to achieve happiness. Achieve happily.

If you are not happy in the beginning of any journey, you will not experience happiness at the end either. – Mike Dooley

Happiness is always a DECISION. Make it !

Love, Joy, Happy Thoughts !
