• THE END

    THE END   The recent departure of a very special soul has left me asking the question: What is it that matters most at the end of our life? What will souls remember about me, or you in the end? Is it how big was your bank balance? Which house you lived in? How many Continue reading »

  • The Seven Laws of Karma that Can Change Our Life for the Better

    we may think we can escape from the security cameras, the police or the judicial system, but we will never escape from our karma.  Karma is the ultimate universal justice system.  It takes care of everyone’s actions.  This means that we don’t need to become the law unto our self.  For each one will be served what they have ‘ordered’, sometimes sweet and sometimes bitter.

  • What’s Controlling You?

    Are others controlling you with their behaviors?  Perhaps, a needy person makes you feel guilty when you don’t give them the attention they seek.  Perhaps, a humorous person irritates you because you don’t have time for their jokes.  Perhaps, certain types of relationships are controlling you – a big brother or sister throws their weight around and you always have to show respect even if you don’t want to.  Pets are the greatest controllers – dogs have to be taken for a walk, cats have to be pampered once a day!  And so, life goes on…

  • Don’t Let Jealousy Hijack Your Life

    Mostly the root of jealousy is a kind of fear, stemming from a lack of self-respect and a lack of a sense of worth or appreciation of one’s own life.  It is when we do not feel complete or fulfilled within ourselves that we start to compare ourselves with others.  We develop a passion or zealousness for making our point, or trying to prove ourselves.  If we were content and satisfied within, we would be secure in the feelings of the eternal self.  But no. Jealousy doesn’t like that. 

  • Sometimes it Pays to Wait

    There comes a time in everyone’s life when we all have to wait.  Even royalty are governed at times and cannot be spared!  In life there are many things that we are waiting for. Waiting for Utopia, for that perfect partner, for that dream job, or simply waiting at the traffic lights or the check-out in the supermarkets.  Waiting is a big part of our life…

  • Out of Sight… or Insight?

    The blind cannot lead the blind, is a famous idiom mentioned in Hinduism in the Upanishads, as well as in Christianity.  The metaphor suggests that if someone does not have a clue about something, how is he able to guide or advise another.  So, in our own life how many of us would choose to get advice from a fool?

  • To be Attached or Non-Attached? (That is the question!?)

    There is that comforting feeling associated with the memories of my attachment.  It is that feeling that I so desperately seek every time I am on the look-out for my attachment fix.  For example, the satisfaction that I get when eating a hot muffin, or the feeling of love through a warm hug, and the sense of security when receiving a paycheck.  It is not literally the cake, the person or the money that creates that feeling, but my own internal associated experience.  In other words – how that makes me feel.

  • Manage Your Mind with Virtue Reality

    Recently the popularity of mindfulness has taken off and reached a whole other level.  But are we mindful about minding our own business?  With the advent of the internet and social media, other people’s business always seems to be much more interesting than our own!

  • Look Within Not Without

    If I am the creator of my life, then, things do not just happen by chance, I am creating them.  I have knitted the web of actions that I am now seeing as the blanket of my life.  I either have to like the creation or not.  It does no good blaming anyone for the blanket that I am now wrapped in.  The good news is the needles for knitting are in my hands, and I can change the pattern into anything that I so choose at any time.

  • Is Blame Blameless?

    Blaming is a very toxic behavior, it is a vice in itself because it does not allow us to see the truth.  We remain stuck in the illusion that others are responsible for bringing me happiness, peace or success in all areas of my life and on all levels.  If we are waiting for other people to fix our life and make us happy then we will be waiting forever.
