Writings that stir your soul

 

Many times it does happen that while you are reading a brilliant piece of writing, something just seems to hit at your heart, it feels like something is nudging your soul. I have felt this often with my heart beats racing faster with every moment. It feels like something inside of me is assertive and commanding, “Look at me Now!’

I would like to refer them as ‘writings that stir your soul’. They bring forth an event, an incident or a conversation that is awaiting its closure. And when you read those words, it feels as if the time is ripe and you are ready. You are ready to see it ‘As it is’ without any pre-judgments or any form of bias and all that you are left with is a gratitude in your heart for everything that happened then.

When you find yourself in that space where your heart and mind are not just aligned but they are in complete surrender to the moment, healing happens and closure is achieved.

This complete surrender allows you to see and embrace that moment without prior expectations or attachments. There lies immense power in words you say and words that you write, especially when they have their roots in intent driven by love and compassion.

Of the many authors that I have come across Priya Kumar’s writings seems to have such an imprint on me. Her stories reflect in them not only her wisdom and humility but also her courage and vulnerability.

So, I hereby, dedicate this article to you with immense gratitude in my heart for stirring up my soul many times and encouraging me to keep walking my quest in your own unique and inspiring way.

Spending time in nature is the best remedy for restlessness….

 

Thoughts can have a tendency to overwhelm you and a web of creation can sometimes be a trap and a delusion. Such times, the restlessness may creep in and it would take enough awareness to come back and ground oneself. One of the best ways to ground yourself would be to spend time in nature.

The trees, the wind, the chirping of the birds, the sound of the waves are not just some random phenomena occurring every single day. They breathe intelligence which touches dimensions that are far beyond than what we, as humans can perceive. Their serenity and wisdom touch many realms and for eons.

When you connect to nature, you connect to your true self.  Nature presents an infinite pool of miracles in itself. It stirs your soul and spirit to connect and recognize the truth that seems to be covered in the layers of delusion.

The strength that nature possesses has the power to heal you from within. The insights from nature can mend your self-esteem and can show you your path to enlightenment; a true path to freedom. There is no end to what all it can offer to the mankind. The question is whether you are ready to receive from it. We, as species have taken this magnificent power for granted even though the existence of mankind is a consequence of nature’s compassion and kindness.

It is the time we reconnect to nature and cleanse ourselves from ill-will, hatred, animosity, and much more.

Take some time out for yourself today, go out for a walk in the park, or on the beach and let your soul wander and align itself to the wisdom that nature is.

Nature is the gateway to the wisdom and wisdom seems to reply in silence.

May your silence be fruitful enough for you to hear the truth,

May your silence gives you the courage to transcend your restlessness,

May your silence today be your true companion walking you to that innate wisdom that you are.

Love, Light & Grace!

Love Yourself

Life can be tough at times. And there is no way one can alter the circumstances or situations or life events that present themselves. But one can surely change or frame an adequate response towards them.

Responding is different from reacting. As the word suggests,‘re-action’, we are only acting out in a way which is more or else auto programmed in our subconscious mind. Most of the times, the premise of these reactions that occur is from fear, anger, ill-will or hatred.

The response, however, is something different. It is independent of the programming or a peculiar habit pattern of our mind. The response is more from free will and choice. The truth is that we can only give all that we have. If we have anger within us that is what we would choose to give from and if we have nothing but compassion and love within then the response will be from the premise of these.

One of the most fundamental things that seem to have been misinterpreted is ‘Loving Yourself’. Loving yourself is not about being selfish or being self-centered. Loving Yourself simply means accepting all that you are and the way you are. Accepting yourself eliminates the need to be accepted by others and hence the actions are not governed by the fear of belongingness; the fear of being an outcast and the fear of loneliness. It is about not having any bias or regrets either for your own strengths or your weakness respectively. It is just about being inclusive of all aspects and owing them without disgrace, disrespect or criticism.

Unless there is acceptance there won’t be a willingness to change or choose without any bias. Everything will be delusional in itself. Change is the only constant thing and the only truth.

When you accept all aspects of yourself, you acknowledge this truth; this truth that is ever-changing from moment to moment. No two moments are the same.  And to experience this truth, it all starts with loving yourself, the way you are and in the ‘Now’. It is in this acceptance in the ‘Now’ that you will move forward in its true sense, detached from the past and peaceful about the future that unfolds.

Loving Yourself is one such powerful tool that can bring forth the truth of your existence and unleash the limitless potential that you are.

So, embrace yourself today and love yourself enough, have a healthy self-esteem and self-worth and go on to radiate that love and compassion all around and for all the realms.

 

Love, light and grace!
