The Yin and the Yang of life

Yin yang

 

Candy crush is an interesting game but being stuck at a level leaves me struggling to devise ways and means to clear the boxes. Unable to remove the jelly with various techniques I almost gave up when I realised that what happens at the bottom of the box is a cause and effect of what happened at the top, a couple of moves earlier. For an effect to take place at one end it is not necessary for an action to happen around the location. A sequence of actions at a far off location send a ripple which in turn brings the three candies together to create the effect required. So it is with life.

Life is about balance. Today is not a result of yesterday. It is the result of a lot of today’s gone by. I guess balance would be about eating the candy today so that you can reach the next level today – not tomorrow. It would be about living today the way it should be lived. Balance is about living the yin and the yang at a given moment. If you are angry at a situation or a person then there is a lot of yang energy around you. Balance is achieved in this case by keeping calm or by being silent. By calmness you allow the yin energy to balance the moment. You have altered the flow of energy. Being angry or yelling creates more yang energy and creates an imbalance which imbalances the flow around you. By neutralising the two energies you have achieved the yin and yang balance and achieved harmony. That is what every moment is about – achieving a state of harmony to create a life that is balanced.

There is no situation where there is only yin or only yang. With sadness there is happiness. When we walk the circle of life, we will walk through the yin and the yang. One will give rise to another. So whatever we go through in life be it yin or yang, one will always succeed the other. The balance is achieved by being comfortable with the flow of energy as it passes from one phase to another.
To find the balance we need to see the yang in the yin and the yin in the yang. When we do that we have learnt to balance life and create an equilibrium that makes our today as perfect as it can be.

The joy of living

Reiki healing

 

Reiki has now become a way of living. As I cannot imagine a day where I do no yoga, I cannot imagine a day where I do no reiki. The more I do reiki, the more I understand about life and the simplicity of all that happens around us and within us. I now know that everything around us is an act of creation – a creation that has sprung up from our mind. Every person, every situation and every act around us is a manifestation of our beliefs, our thoughts, our strengths and our limitations. We alone have the power to create our lives and we alone are responsible for our circumstances.

Here are some beautiful words that echo my belief in what life is:
1. You receive a Body
You may like it or not, but it is yours for this life-time.

2. You will learn Lessons
You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called ‘Life’. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant or stupid

3. There are no Mistakes, Only Lessons
Growth is a process of trial and error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much a part of the process as the one that ultimately works

4. A Lesson is repeated until it is Learned
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. Then you can go to the next lesson.

5. Learning Lessons Does not End
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. “There” is no better than “Here”
When your “There” has become a “Here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will, again, look better than “Here”.

7. Others are Merely Mirrors of You
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you Make of Your Life is up to You
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. The Answers Lie Inside You
The answers to Life’s questions lie inside you. All You need to do is look, listen and trust.

10. Whether you think you can or can’t – in either case you’ll be right

Flowing with the flow of life

Pranayama

 

Life begins with a breath and ends with a breath. We exist because life force flows through us. These were the thoughts I had as I ended the yoga practice with a round of pranayama. Such a simple exercise but such immense benefits. Here are some facts on this wonderful yogic breathing:

Through pranayama we tap into the unlimited intelligence of the life force. Pranayama is a series of breathing excersises where we control the breath through inhalations and exhalations. There is nothing forceful in pranayama. As we gently breathe in and breathe out, we flow with flow of life. We move in cohesion with the flow and become one with it. In this oneness we draw from the limitless pool of energy, replenishing ourselves.

Our lifestyle is such that we are constantly exposed to stress. Stress and habits can create energetic obstacles within the body. Our breathing becomes shallow. At any point of time we take shallow breaths. We develop breathing patterns that restrict the flow of breath. When prana or life energy flows through the body it breaks the energetic obstacles that have been created within the body. Through pranayama we start to free these unconscious breathing and emotional patterns, that we have developed over time. Since there is a systematic inhalation and exhalation, the regulated flow of the breath breaks this unconsious pattern of breathing and this in turn frees up the emotional patterns that lie in the subconsious.

As these energetic obstacles break, the body relaxes and heals. Balance is restored to the body and the body starts to self heal. As the body heals ailments start to disappear. These is all unconscious without us realizing what is happening.

With Pranayama we use our entire breathing mechanism. When we inhale slowly and deeply through the nose, the air is filtered and kept moist – the perfect condition for efficient transfer of oxygen to the lungs. When we take a full breath with a longer inhalation, our abdominal organs also move along with the diaphragm. This is important, as the abdomin is already compromised due to long periods of sitting at a desk. This sitting posture does not allow us to use the diaphragm completely. The sitting posture uses only the upper and middle parts of the lungs. Instead of just breathing through middle and upper parts of our lungs as we normally do, pranayama gets the breath to flow through the lower part.

The same case applies when we exhale. A shallow exhalation does not empty the lungs out completely. Deep breathing removes the graviy at the lower section and replinishes the lower lung with nutrients and oxygen due to the movement of air. When we manipulate breath by extending or shortening the length of inhalation and exhalation or by holding the breath, we shift the energy within the body. Energy shift alters our mood considerably. If we go a step further and combine Pranayama with mudras and mantras we can achieve a desired effect.

Our body has a large amount of fluid present around the blood vessels and organs. When we breathe deeply the movement of the air in and out is like a cleansing mechanism. This breathing also promotes the movement of fluid within the lymphatic system. A movement necessary for efficient transfer within the body.

During pranayama the focus is on the breath. Since we focus on the breath our concentration increases. With deep breathing there is also an increase in the amount of oxygen reaching the cells. This also increases concentration in addition to an increase in cellular respiration. Both these start to build up the energy level.

 

How do we do pranayama?

Pranayama consists of various forms of breathing: anulom vilom, Ujjayi Pranayama, Bhramari Pranayama are the ones done on a regular basis. Pranayama is best practised on an empty stomach. It is benefecial right after the yoga asanas are completed and just before meditation. The best position would be a sitting down position that is comfortable – the lotus pose, the cross legged pose or any other sitting pose where you can sit comfortably for 15 to 20 minutes.

So go ahead and take a long deep breath and let the prana flow through you, revitalising, nourishing and soothing you.

The Durga or Receiving symbol

We as a group of healers and light workers trip on doing energy circles and Reiki circles together. Most of the times our angels, masters and all other world friends bless us with some messages or highlight some points that need our attention. We’ve been doing Reiki for almost 3 years now and it’s now a part of us just as breathing is, so obviously we’ve been patiently waiting for a big message or a symbol to pop up for us. Well one can be hopeful right? 🙂

This year, during the Indian Navratri festival, which celebrates the different forms of Shakti, we decided to do a Goddess Reiki circle, invoking the different forms of Shakti to bless us with their powerful energy. Little did we know that our lovely, dynamic, charismatic Durga will bless us with our very own Reiki symbol and it was well worth the wait.

A dear friend from the Reiki circle channelled this symbol for us and the more I looked at it, the more sense it made…..

Durga Look at it.. at first you see the Durga eyes with the big bindi in the centre.. Ah! How I love this symbol. Every time you need the Durga Shakti, you simply draw this symbol. It’s your very own secret code of connection with Durga. Well this is not it; this symbol has so so so so much more to offer.

First, the very obvious one is the healing of the Third eye Chakra. The drop/bindi sits perfectly on your third eye and helps in healing the blocks and balancing this chakra. You can invoke the energy of this symbol if you feel a creative block, if your thoughts are not streamlined, if your head feels crowded and you can also use this for headaches and sinus issues.

Let’s go a bit more in depth and see what more the symbol has to offer… When you look at it closely you will see, it’s a being standing there with open arms and the universe blessing the being with a drop from the ocean. Mind you! The drop is just the perfect size so that the being can hold it in his arms, take it in and savour it with ease. Nothing more and nothing less. Just like life and just like the answers to our prayers.

The universe knows exactly how much we need and how much we can savor and gifts us with exactly that. It’s we who cannot see beyond, hence always want more. In this regard the application of this symbol in Reiki would be to send out your intent but then open up yourself to receiving along with mammoth trust in the universe, that it will provide you with exactly what is required at that moment.

Many a times, we as healers have noticed that even though people ask for healing, they may not always accept it or be open to receiving it consciously or subconsciously. In these situations invoking this symbol works wonders.

I feel this symbol can also be used as an affirmation. Drawing this symbol is indicating that you are open to receiving all that the universe has to offer. A lot of us face problems with balanced giving and receiving. Just like the Yin and Yang, the Giving and Receiving have to be in balance. Most of us have no problems giving but when it comes to receiving we are not even aware of what we are doing wrong.

Balancing the Yin and Yang: This symbol was given to us by Durga Shakti and Durga resides in the Sacral Chakra, the seat of Yin and Yang. This symbol also denotes the balancing scales, which is balancing the core of our being, The Yin and Yang. If you have issues with symmetry and balance then this symbol works wonders. You can also use this in Reiki sessions where the client needs healing in the above mentioned aspects.

It also a fantastic symbol for Card readers and for all Mediums and Channels. Invoking this symbol will help you open up and help in establishing a strong connection with the divine energy. Our message was to make this symbol freely available. This is not a secret symbol so feel free to share with as many as possible.

Enjoy the symbol, savour it and own it..

The universe is abundant

I was collecting sea shells with my daughter and there were thousands of shells scattered on the beach, all washed ashore by the waves. We had planned to make a sea shell box and were collecting the shells so that we could stick them on a box, to make it look pretty. My daughter had collected quite a bit so I suggested we leave and come back if we needed more. My excited daughter happily skipped beside me and said: “there are so many shells, I can never pick all of them.” But we do not need all of them, I replied, “we need enough to complete the box”.
I looked at the sea with its endless supply of shells scattered on the beach. There was enough for everyone, if everyone just picked up what they required. If we had tried to amass all that was on the beach that day, there would never be enough. Not for us and not for anyone. Nature provides for us constantly.  There is plenty for each one. Plenty as per our requirement. When we want to amass more than we need, we let our greed take over and then the scarcity starts, because we are hoarding and no longer simply replenishing ourselves.
abundance
Why do we have this need to keep a security blanket around ourselves at all times? We do this with the food we eat, the clothes we buy, the items we display, the time at our disposal and whatever we think enhances our life. Does this need stem from an underlying fear of having nothing. Nothing means you are a nobody and being a nobody means you are left all alone. Is that so terrifying? Not really I thought.
When I let go of the fear that I will not be left with much, I found the fear replaced with the thought of “plenty”.  I realised there was plenty around me. I also realised  that the universe will always provide for you and me. If you really want something you will get it. It is the law of the universe. I know for sure that when I constantly think about something it just happens leaving me pleasantly surprised every time. I am learning to trust and let go and amazingly life is responding by becoming so easy. Imagine quitting all that worrying and leaving it all in the comforting hands of this infinite energy source. When you want something for yourself, just ask for it with all your heart and soul – and you will get it, if it is good for you.
The energy is all around us. When we create a thought we set into motion a pattern that attracts more similar thoughts that tap into the energy to create our reality. So think thoughts of abundance, thoughts of plenty thoughts to create a richer life. And spend a moment counting your many blessings 🙂

Joy & the Immune System

Happiness is one of the greatest antibiotics available to us. It creates balance in the blood and releases stress by flushing out damaging toxins. Studies have shown that depression leads to lowered T lymphocytes. Negative emotions will therefore contribute to prolonged infection. Just by staying relaxed and happy you can boost your immune response.

A way to build the immune system is to focus on the thymus gland. The thymus gland is an important organ of the immune system. It regulates the level of prana or life energy within the body. In scientific terms the thymus gland is instrumental in the production and maturation of T-lymphocytes or T cells. T cells protect the body from viruses and infections and form a part of the immune system. The thymus produces and secretes thymosin, a hormone necessary for T cell development and production.

For those allergic to environmental changes an increase in allergy symptoms indicates that our immune system is working overtime. A stuffy nose, inflamed eyes or a sore throat are a result of the mucous produced by the immune system, when it fights, invading infections. If the immune system is not strong the bacteria can go deeper in the body and cause fever or pain and even aching in the joints.

In complementary medicine this gland is of vital importance for the life energy available within the body. This gland is located between the heart and throat chakra right where the two collarbones meet. The thymus sits above the higher eighth chakra and is associated with immune system function for the rest of your aura.

An important quality of the thymus is an expression of uniqueness – what is natural and unique to you. When you repress your qualities you suppress life energy. This results in stress and an inclination towards stress producing illness. If you relax the nervous system the symptoms of allergies start decreasing and diminish over time.

Yoga asanas are an excellent way of relaxing the nervous system. Some Yoga postures that focus on deep breathing and relax the nervous system are:

Kapalbharti – a brilliant technique for allergies as it forces the mucous out of the body.

The Tortoise pose, the Pigeon, the Fish, the Boat, the Bow and the Bridge – stimulates both the thymus gland and the immune system.

Inversions and Forward Bends like – Downward Facing Dog pose (improves the flow of the sinuses and help flush mucous from the lungs).

Camel pose (opens the chest and lungs).

Cobra pose (increases lung mobility).

Basic yoga poses and breathing exercises induce a state of happiness. This state is not just a result of the exercise induced dopamine but goes deeper. The mind-body connection created in yoga brings change at a cellular level. Yoga breathing activates the Parasympathetic nervous system. Yoga integrates mind, body and spirit and therein lies the beauty of this discipline. This connectedness brings forth a deep well of joy and peace. Therein lies the happiness.

The Weight-Loss Chronicles 5 – Tummy Trouble

The overall weight-loss story is a Solar Plexus chakra story. Remember when we talked about fight vs flight and its impact on weight. The fight is when we feel a loss of control or start resisting something. This chakra is all about Power, Control, Will, Self Worth & Ego. The ‘controlling’ of weight as it were, therefore, belongs to this Chakra. The Solar Plexus is the band above the navel and below the heart.

The thing with the tummy is that it is partly the Solar and partly the Sacral and it is difficult to talk about one without the other. The ‘key’ is actually the Solar Plexus, as it has a part to play in the overall weight story. The connections happen when we start talking about a sweet tooth and about our lust for Chocolate. A Chocolate obsession, in my book, puts you in the Sacral category and an overall sweet tooth is the Solar.

There is an interesting story on Diabetes as well. The connection with the organs makes it both a Solar and Sacral story. If you have Diabetes, try and figure out when you discovered you had it. Chances are that it was the point when good things started happening to you. Diabetes is literally ‘inability to process sweet’ and if you take that thought forward to life…it’s the inability to process the sweetness of life. So, actually diabetes happens when life becomes sweet (after much hardship or lack) and the body-mind-spirit has forgotten how to handle it. A great affirmation is ‘I’m ready to enjoy the sweetness of life’. Please note that you should not stop medication but do go for regular tests to see if there is improvement.

Anyways, back to the Solar Plexus Chakra. Now think about all of the associated words and their context to weight. Willpower to not eat that cake? Fat and worthless? Binge eating or out of control eating? You get my drift right? And it is really easy to break it down for yourself. Take Power to start with. When do you feel powerless? Helpless? Is that when you start eating? Now the powerlessness could be related to a security issue you have and you may end up putting on weight on your butt, however, the trigger to binge will be activated at the Solar level.

If you start putting on weight at the tummy first. Or basically are apple-shaped, then it’s a solar story with you. And it’s important to note if it’s below navel or above navel. Below is a Sacral Chakra story. If you simply put on weight evenly across your body, that is a Solar story as well.

Think about the situations / instances that made you start putting on weight or makes you put on more weight. Think about the triggers. Even if you feel that it’s physical. So you had a week long party or were on holiday, just get in touch with the emotions you felt. A holiday is meant to relax us, but in truth, we think about our work, colleagues, and all the insecurities pour in, and we put on weight. Stress eating is a complete Solar story.

Going back to the words. The Solar Plexus is distressed when you feel Powerless or Helpless. When you feel Out of Control, or when situations look Out of Control. When you feel less Worthy or not good enough.

What is interesting is that most of the words associated with the Solar can be considered external or in relation to others. But are actually very very internal. All issues of worthiness are always internal. And the external is just mirror for how we feel internally. And a lot of times it really is internal because when you check with the person who supposedly put you down, you will realize that the person meant something entirely different from what you understood.

Self worth is an interesting story and I feel I’m rambling now, so I’ll try and put it down in bullet points 🙂

– If you exist, you are worthy! Like the butterfly effect, only the divine knows what your purpose is and by existing you are meeting your purpose. There is no need for anything more – so just do what makes you happy.

– Don’t define yourself by what you Do but by who you are. And remember that you are perfect as you are.

– Be happy with who you are. Stop berating yourself over shoulds and musts. Believe yourself worthy of saying Yes to yourself (even if it means saying no to others)

– Try not to compare yourself to other people. You will never know their full story.

The control story is all about trust. You know the over-controlling boss has trust issues! When you feel that things are not in control, take a deep long breath and say ‘I choose to trust’. Even when things look bleak, just trust that the storm is simply leading you to the rainbow. A great affirmation for the Solar plexus is ‘I flow with the flow of life’ or ‘I surrender to the will of the universe’ (I love love  the second one – makes me feel like I’m dissolving into the universal energy).

Another aspect of control is letting go. You know where this is headed right? So, constipation – and therefore holding on to weight. Try ‘I let go and I let flow’.

The last aspect is power. And this about examining the definition of power and the reasons you feel powerless. Being true to yourself is the most powerful thing in the world. Do check an earlier post on power  – ode to shakti. 

I love the Citrine – it’s is a great crystal to work with the Solar Plexus. I even use it to aid digestion after an overly indulgent meal 😉

Mantras & Chakras

om earth meets sky

There are some days that you can look back on and you know that something shifted and you would not be the same again. One of those days was the day I started listening to Thomas Ashley-Farrand. It changed the way I comprehended mantras and how I felt about them. TAF has a 12 part series on Healing Mantras and a book as well. I am more a reader but the tapes really were magical.

TAF talks about sound and how it precedes even light. First there was a ‘big bang’ and then the world was created. And ‘god SAID, let there be light’ – he had to say it, and therefore produced a sound before light. So our relationship with sound is at the primordial level, we feel the vibrations in the depths of our being. And change occurs at a deep cellular level. That is the power of mantras.

These are but a few that I have worked with and this is my experience with them. Rule of thumb for chanting matras is 108 times for 40 days. Seems like a lot but it takes all of 8 minutes to do a 108 round. A chanting meditation is best but I add on singing/chanting them through the day.

Root Chakra – We’re talking fears here and financial difficulties. Or even property related issues. All things related to safety, security, protection.

For all fears, if you fear for your safety, or worry about your safety, feel that you will be harmed in any way, then the Kali and/or Durga Mantra is the one for you. ‘Om dum durgaye namah’ & ‘Om kreem kalikaye namah’

I remember chanting the Durga Mantra while going through a dark hallway at night. I remember the wild beating of my heart and how I felt this amazing calmness as I chanted the mantra.

For difficulties, obstacles, things not materializing it’s the Ganesha mantra ‘Om gum ganapatiye namah’. One of my earlier posts gives the explanation of the Ganesha Mantra so I wont repeat it here.

I feel this one in my mind, like the unnecessary thoughts are going into the trash bin. Clearheaded and a lightness around the crown.

Sacral – for adding creativity, fertility, joy, embracing your femininity / masculinity.

Joy is the Durga mantra again. I feel this upliftment, like something is rising from deep inside and it always turns my lips upwards.  Henry Marshall’s rendition of this mantra is my favourite.

Solar Plexus – this is about will, control, abundance, flowing with life.

If the attempt is to have more power and control. And to invite abundance to life then it’s the Laxmi mantra for you. ‘Om shreem maha laxmiye namah’

Also known as the great abundance mantra. Now is the time for Laxmi actually, it’s a great time to start chanting this manta

If you want to surrender control or surrender the ego, to flow with the flow of life, to be one with the will of the universe, then you do the Vishnu mantra. For anything that gives you power it will most likely be a feminine mantra, as power (shakti) is feminine. ‘Om namoh bhagwate vasudeva’ 

The difference in chanting both of them is astounding. With the Vishnu mantra you have this sense of peace and you don’t get troubled easily.  With the Laxmi mantra, you have an opening up of possibilities, and of a positive outlook.

A combination of the Laxmi Mantra & the Ganesha Mantra is a sure shot recipe for success. The first opens up possibilities and the second gives you focus and clarity to achieve your goals.

Heart – for love, compassion, healing and kindness, there really isn’t anything like ‘Om mani padme hum’. The mantra actually clears all the chakras not just the heart. But it’s the heart where all healing starts from and it’s the first chakra it opens.

It is often the first mantra people start with and I highly recommend it. The most amazing thing about this mantra is the cool breeze that follows as you start chanting it. It is Quan Yin’s signature to let you know she’s with you. Keep watch for it, it’s quite quite incredible.

Throat – for creative expression (writing, singing, painting…), saying the right thing, sore throats. The simple saraswati mantra ‘Om aim saraswatiye namha’ works really well or the longer gayatri mantra ‘Om bhur bhuva swahah, tat savitur varenium, bhargo devasya dhimahi, diyo yo na prachodayat’. The gayatri mantra is also considered to be an ascension mantra.

Both these have the same energy signature for me. They are like butterfly mantras – you feel a little bit like skipping out in the sun.

Third Eye & Crown – For seeing, perceiving clearly and with compassion, for headaches, ear aches and eye troubles. And for energy clearance. The universal sound ‘Aum’ works, it also clears all the chakras not just the Crown and Third eye.

The other mantra that really works is ‘Om namah shivaah’. This is a love and pure consciousness mantra and works for all chakras. This one starts from the crown and moves downwards.

The Gayatri mantra works as well – would say it’s a throat to crown mantra.

My favourite energy clearance mantra is ‘ek on kar, satnam’, you can also say ‘ek OM kar, satnam’. This one really makes you feel like God!

The Weight-Loss Chronicles 4: Chocolate & the Sacral Chakra

In between the belly button and the tailbone is the Sacral chakra. If you are a belly weight gainer, figure out if it is below the naval or above. If you get the little belly below you have a Sacral story going on with you.

Chances are that you like chocolate – a lot! If you have a sweet tooth and any sweet will do and you don’t like chocolate much then wait for the next chapter on the Solar Plexus 🙂

The Sacral chakra is about Creativity and Creation, Sex and Sexuality, Fertility, Joy, Pleasure & Abundance. Think about these words and see where you find the lack or the struggle. It is possible that Creativity flows though you but Joy alludes you.

Scientists have proven that when we eat chocolate it releases the pleasure hormones in our brain. If our word is lacking in pleasure, we crave chocolate because our natural or ideal state of being is about being happy, creating and about pleasure. Pleasure itself has an offshoot of pleasing – are you pleasing yourself enough? Or are you constantly putting all your efforts in pleasing others?

None of this means that chocolate is bad. Chocolate is great because it is giving your body what it needs. But wouldn’t it be amazing that your mental and emotional state was so full of pleasure that you would not need that much chocolate. Please don’t force yourself to stop, it will happen on its own as the chakra corrects itself.

The chocolate connection is an indicator that the sacral needs correction. The other indicator is the weight gain in the lower belly area. Simple affirmations are a great way to start and so is wearing crystals. Incidentally, the other thing that releases the happy hormones is exercise 🙂 No escaping that no matter what chakra you work on. Do a little walking, try a minute of running, if you couple that with some affirmations the results will be quite phenomenal.

The Carnelian is the best sacral chakra healing stone. I have noticed that it takes me a little while to get accustomed to the stone (yes, the sacral is my story 🙂 ) so I start by wearing it for an hour or so and slowly build it up to the full day.

Other crystals that benefit the sacral are moonstones and mother of pearl and rubies. Rubies I find the easiest to wear actually. And I prefer the tumbled version to the faceted Jewelry kind. Rule of thumb is that if the crystal is orange in colour it will work on the sacral chakra. Wearing the various shades of orange helps as well. You just realized that you really like the colour orange right?! That’s your body telling you your needs:)

Here’s a set of affirmations that work well for the sacral –

1. I am open to receiving the pleasures in life / I’m open to joy / I’m ready to let happiness into my life

2. Life is easy, life is fun, oh what joy to be under the sun

3. Creativity flows through me, in and around me

4. I love being a woman/man. It is joyous being a woman/man.

See which one resonates with you the most and go with that. 21 times for 21 days or longer.

Do remember to cleanse your crystals and activate them.

Not Guilty

403842_424986514218193_234706208_n

Once Mulla was told lay his wife to take junior for a ride in the park. On the way Mulla was met by his friends who wanted loin to play poker with them. Mulla refused and said that he had promised his wife to take junior to the park.

Mulla’s friends looked at junior and remarked I hope he it satisfied. The other friend said Yes depriving us of a partner just before our last crucial poker game and all because junior has to ride around in his old stroller. I just hope he is satisfied. Mulla junior looked sadly at the sky and to aught My first year in this world and I am already feeling guilty. ~ Osho
It is an arduous task to not feel guilt. We feel it when we leave our kids to go to work, we feel it when we think about our aging parents, we feel it when we’re out with friends (with our spouse at home or with friends who are not there), when we lose our temper, when we lie, when we make excuses to not meet someone….the list is endless isn’t it. And the most amazing thing of all is if we don’t feel guilty, we feel guilty about not feeling the guilt. It’s a vicious trap that we are lured into at a young young age and then we are so conditioned that we start finding it pleasurable.

Guilt does nothing for you. It doesn’t change the situation, doesn’t make anybody feel better, only succeeds in making one more person (you!) miserable.

If you have really done something you feel bad about, remember that you are only compounding it by feeling guilt over it. Just believe that What is, Is. Trust that it was always meant to be. Once the action is taken, know that it was beyond your control. It was one of the fixed destined events that just had to happen. And there is nothing you could have done to change it. Do the best you can and once it’s done, move on from it.

When you feel the guilt creeping up, remember that what others feel is their story. If they feel let down or upset because of you, it is still their story. If it hadn’t been you it would have been someone else that would make them feel that way. You were just incidental to the process. You are only responsible for how you feel. So stop feeling the guilt!!

Feel love, feel compassion, feel kindness, just let go of the guilt…
