Spring Cleaning for the Soul

I awaken from the slumber of winter.

Time to blow away the cobwebs of worries, doubts and fears
Brush off the dust of resentments and regrets
The past is the past

It’s time to open the windows and let the light in
The light of God and the might of God!
I am coloured by the power of His presence.

The light within once again sparkles
Bringing love, peace and power within
And leaving a beautiful fragrance of happiness for all to share

Let each day be Spring!

 

Om Shanti

The Control Factor

depth_within

Situations happen – they are a part and parcel of life and with them come stress, pain, tension and worry. However these are not a part and parcel of life – they are actually a choice we make.

Situations, people, nature, circumstances etc.. are beyond our control – they have their own momentum and path. When we are not willing to let go of that which we cannot control then we choose to move into a space of stress, worry and tension.

Acceptance and the willingness to let go and move on allows us to protect ourselves from these negative by-products of wanting to control.

Letting go of control is not just a physical thing – it is about mentally and emotionally letting go of the need to control a situation.

In the face of challenges, If we are able to stop and step into our inner space and see another perspective then it will allow us to free ourselves and move on. The longer we hold onto something, in the hope to control or change the outcome, the harder it will be to let go because the deeper will be the mental and emotional bonds to it.

When we realise the futility of control we will be able to turn to ourselves and instigate a more positive change from within.

Om Shanti

Seed of Thought

2015-04-20_0807_001

We often describe thoughts as seeds because from one thought many more thoughts are generated. These thoughts go on to determine our words and actions.

If we step back and observe these thoughts, then we start to understand that the thoughts we are generating are our creation. So then the question that arises is ‘What is the seed behind my thoughts?’ ‘What is it within the self that initiates the thought in the first place?’

The seeds that create thoughts are the desires that we hold within our hearts. The ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ we have.

When we look closely within we will find that behind much of our thinking are feelings. When we are in touch with those feelings we will discover our ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ – the ‘desires’ that are the seeds behind those thoughts.

There are the physical needs for sure but even more powerful are the subtle needs of love, respect, power, authority, popularity, belonging and so forth. These then become the foundation from which thoughts are born and actions created. To varying degrees we all experience, at some time, fear, worry, anxiety. All these are born through desire!

What type of desires should I have to ensure the thoughts and feelings that emerge are positive and benevolent?

 

Om Shanti
