A World of Suffering


It is a world in which there is so much suffering and pain. Physically there may be wealth but emotionally and mentally there is suffering.

Deep within the soul there is a subtle sense of suffering due to a lack of peace, contentment and perhaps even true love. This then does not allow the soul to be free.

In such a world we see, experience and absorb suffering by default. Whatever it is that we absorb and hold within us, naturally that is what we give back to the world we live in.

If we are to make a difference then we need to be aware to stop absorbing all the negativity that is present in the world around us. We also need to proactively spend time nurturing the virtues of peace, contentment and love within our own selves. This will protect us from absorbing negativity but also allow us to share goodness with the world.

Change in the world begins with me. Let me take this step and make a difference.


Om Shanti

The Blame Game


What is the lens through which blame is seen?

Blame is a habit we develop which allows us to justify our pain and suffering.

One can experience pain for many reasons; however it is an option to suffer. When I am not willing to let go of what I cannot control, then I am making a choice to suffer. That suffering then becomes the reason to blame something or someone for my pain.

We get used to suffering and think it is part of life, but it is actually a choice we make. It is also a choice to be happy. By harbouring feelings of suffering we erode our own ability to be happy.

This is known as the Blame Game which we play with ourselves. It becomes our way of dealing with pain. By playing the blame game we give ourselves permission to hold on to suffering. We become a victim and in doing so we lose the power to change the situation.

Don’t play the game. Transform the pain.

Om Shanti
