Every month, we receive a bank statement recording our inflow and outflow of cash transactions. It’s the balancing act. I wonder whether our lives resemble the bank statement where an act of kindness can earn us a coin of goodness and a negative act depreciates our value. Sure it does. But, it goes beyond that. Limitless like the seamless oceans and lakes.
It’s my firm belief that there are two kinds of people in this world. Firstly, as a result of the pain and suffering inflicted by others, they choose to make others suffer in equal measure and, secondly, there are bruised souls who were treated unkindly and ruthlessly but they spread love and treat their fellow humans with ‘free love’, gentleness and compassion. It depends on what we want to become in life. We are all agents of free will and prisoners of the bad triggers. Once a friend told me after I was freaking out post my terrible break-up, ‘But remember at all times, that someone is always looking over you, and they’ll carry you out of this, if you allow them to, ok? ‘
This friend of mine is Nisha. It’s been ages that we haven’t been in touch owing to priorities and caught up in our respective worlds where there is hardly anytime speaking to each other but I always read our conversations which I haven’t deleted in my old mail. Trust me, it’s an exchange that dated for more than eight years and she has always been a huge pillar of support to me. Someone that I shall always respect for gently showing me the way and bringing such good vibes to my life. It leads me to the thought about bad triggers and how we separate the bad apples from the good ones in the basket. Is there something called ‘bad triggers? Yes, may be. I am not qualified to ponder about. But, I can only speak from personal experience. I have seen the amazingly perfect life which is subjective from my standpoint and the real bad with being in and out of jobs coupled with debts and EMI. I almost went mad. I was fighting frustration every single and had no choice but to make a fresh start. There were depression and illusion that I suffered from. But, it’s the past, right?
The point which I want to make is whether bad or good karma can be shifted among humans, similar to our bank accounts or business where we end up making profit or loss. It’s tricky, right. I have always cursed my former employer who pushed me and the others in the dark where I was forced to resign since the company’s account was in doldrums. Cut the crap. Shall I? Indeed. In fact, I have started reading Life Positive magazine where there are themes such as forgiveness and healing practices. I came to this thought after reading an article on forgiveness. It’s quite an irony of sort since I neither forgive nor forget. But, someone mentioned in an article that when you are treated badly, that one person is transferring his or her good Karma to you. It’s quite interesting. If we delve deeper, it makes so much sense to us.
Those days, I am striving to practice the Power of Now to be more aware and live in the moment. I want to be present in the Now and not let the mind drift, be it while exercising, doing meditation, chewing the food or during Surya Namaskar. The mind is so powerful that it can overcome us in a jiffy where our thoughts wander negatively. I’ve experienced it. I know how bad things can get when the mind is in a turmoil. The practice mindfulness is very empowering and soothes our senses. Light helps us a lot. I want to be more aware of it and love to fix my eyes on the light. After all, in the yoga class, Guru-ji always tells us to stare at the light and don’t blink. It’s such a powerful source of energy, I believe. It’s our relationship with happiness that matters a lot. Breathing in and out brings so much joy which helps us to combat stress or bout of depression, flushing out negativity or diluting out anger. I love the sense of quietness when I sit in meditation and don’t let thoughts to filter. The state of emptiness is happiness and food to the soul.
Breathing in and out brings out this happiness we all long for. It’s the Now. The deep breathing techniques, In and Out help us to achieve this state of stillness and happiness. It’s been four months that I am doing yoga regularly and there has been a marked improvement where now I am able to do poses that I wasn’t able to do earlier. My Guru told me today that I have made good progress while earlier, the body was too stiff. It gives so much happiness to feel the positive energy running in the body.
I believe that vibes or energy choose us for a specific purpose. After having been through ups and downs, it’s not without purpose to say that I honestly want to be a healer. I want to empower people and accompany them in their tough moments but also good ones. I want to carry the positive energy and spread happiness. There is nothing that happens without a purpose, good or bad. Everything happens for a reason, right. The past lessons are leading me to believe that in future, I can make a difference to someone’s life and help to heal them. Known or unknown people are bound by a chain in the world of good or bad, positive or negative.
Spread the love and positive energy.
Stay beautiful and in the moment
