Time to go Home

At the dawn of my journey, on this beautiful planet, my days were filled with joy and laughter in an atmosphere that was fresh, clean, pure and invigorating.

Morning came and all was still well, but slowly followed the afternoon which marked the beginning of a change. The movement and transformation of noon and beyond brought a definite sense of tiredness in my journey. I moved on into early evening and everything continued, as alway, even though the journey and life had now become quite an effort. The dusk of time neared and so my journey.

Late evening fast approached until I was in the depths of night. I tried desperately to hold on to the day. I tried to re-kindle the happiness I use to experience but without avail.

Then, just as the last drops of hope were about to be lost, a memory awakened from deep within – the promise of a new day!

And before the day, there is always the night and the time to go home, the time to rest before the day begins anew.

 

Om Shanti

My Original Self

sanskars

When thoughts are expressed they lead to words and action. This expression of thoughts creates an experience for the self and leaves a memory of that experience within the subconscious.

When I repeat the same words and actions again and again, they become a habit. And when habits are repeated, over time, they become my personality – it reflects the way I am.

This personality I am now, has been created, over time, through expression and experience. Layers of experiences have superseded each other with dominating personality traits overpowering more subtle and gentle ones.

I take a deep breath and reflect on this ‘created’ personality of mine and the thought arises from deep within the soul – what was my original personality? Will I ever return to that original pure personality that I was?

And my conscience responds in a whisper – this is the destiny of the soul.

 

Om Shanti

Quick, Press Pause

Each scene that happens in our life is by default done with the ‘record’ button pressed on. Whatever happens is recorded in our memory and in our hearts in the form of thoughts and feeling. Once recorded they will definitely be played back at some point in time, possibly many times.

The recorded past when played back influences the present as well as the future.

If I wish to be able to  forgive and forget, move on, let go, live in the present etc. then I need to be free from this recorded influence as much as possible.

Become aware of this constant, automatic recording process that is going on and press the ‘pause’ button. Be careful about what you record. If it is not useful then don’t record it, it is really not important.

Take full control of what you are recording – press ‘pause’.

Om Shanti
