Surrender

Once you surrender to your vision, success begins to chase you. – Robin Sharma

Profound! Isn’t it? Most of us are conditioned to do exactly the opposite. We are trained to chase success and surrender our vision for attaining the illusion of success.

This makes us hollow. We feel the vacuum. We miss the sense of satisfaction. We lose opportunities to create and keep groping for meaning.

If you have a vision, it’s the most priceless endowment, a peerless blessing. Appreciate its value and the value of your life will appreciate in geometrical proportions.

We are not born to control. We are born to surrender to our visions, our dreams… Life wants to create through us. Each and everything in nature except humans knows this. We mistakenly believe that we have a duty, a responsibility to do a lot of things for our growth and prosperity. We think that we must struggle for survival.

We are supposed simply to allow miracles to manifest through us…to experience the incredible…the mesmerizing and immerse in exuberance.

We all have visions. But, we turn their volume so low that we cannot even hear them now. Decrease the volume of the conditioned mind and fine tune with intuition…inspiration and surrender to Life to live in the true sense. God has been telling this to us since ages. It’s time to listen.

Dreams are inevitable..

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.-Christopher Reeve.

Every dream needs a period of incubation. During this period, all we need to do is patiently allow the dream to blossom. As we focus our attention and mental energy on the dream, it reveals its potential. We can sense its form and then start believing in its probability.

The moment we can see even one percent probability, our mind gets flooded with ideas to make it manifest. Every dream deserves at least some contemplation. We should never shun anything outrightly.

A dream is like a seed. Let it take roots in your fertile mind and provide it with positive environment…an environment of belief. Water it with passion. Manure it with enthusiasm. All these together form a strong Will to act and accomplish the dream.

God keeps inspiring us to take the right action. The instincts to act may be novel to us. But, we must not doubt them. Old ways of acting are of little use in reaching new horizons. We need to invent new means. We need to create new paths. And then achievement becomes inevitable.

Revolution

Revolution, total revolution, implies experimenting with the impossible. And when an individual takes a step in the direction of the new, the impossible, the whole human race travels through that individual. – Vimala Thakar

This is really encouraging! Many a time we find a vision which seems too big and impossible. And we think “how can I accomplish it all alone?” We mistakenly think that it is our wishful thinking…imaginary. But, that’s why the power of imagination is granted to us. The vision should inspire us.

However, we trust our conditioned thoughts more than the the vision, the inspiration. Only the visionaries have brought about revolutions by trusting the seed of the new…the impossible. They defied the prevalent beliefs. They were alone when they took the first step. But, the vision gave them the magnetic​ power of attracting followers.

The queue always starts with one. There is nothing wrong in following the visionary. But, we should not shun our inspirations for seeming impossible​. Just one step…it could be just penning down the idea..but we should do it. Rest will be taken care of.

From belief to faith

Faith is the stepping stone to creation…

Faith can connect the dots. Faith can synchronize acausal events. Faith is the breath that gives life to dreams and visions.
Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe. – Saint Augustine

Faith is the Apex in which all beliefs culminate. Belief is the starting point of faith. Because when you believe in something or someone or even yourself, you will get proofs to support your beliefs. Proofs do not just show up. If we wait for proofs to show up to form a belief, we will have to wait till eternity. When we believe, the proofs appear to support and gradually we reach a point of unwavering faith which Kahlil Gibran describes thus:
Faith is a knowledge within the heart, beyond the reach of proof.
