What is Romance? Having a million love affairs!

What is Romance? Having a million love affairs!

Why bother falling in love with just one person when you could have love affairs with the whole existence? Let’s take a look at what is romance and what being a true romantic means.
Sadhguru at the conclusion of 1 day program at Singapore - What is Romance? Having a Million Love Affairs

Why bother falling in love with just one person when you could have love affairs with the whole existence? Let’s take a look at what is romance and what being a true romantic means.

Sadhguru: Unfortunately, people have brought romance down to only a young male and female. Why just the neighborhood girl? The neighborhood girl has become magnified in your eyes because your intelligence has been hijacked by your hormones. If it wasn’t, the whole universe and every piece of creation is worth involvement, isn’t it? That’s what is romance. It is a very deep involvement.

What is romance – A deeper look

The whole problem of constantly seeing people for their gender is something that has to go from the world.

Right now in this world, it has become like this: if you utter the word “relationship” it has to be man-woman. They may not always be man-woman, but even if it is otherwise, people play the roles of man-woman. So essentially, what you call a relationship nowadays is just the involvement of two bodies.

But just a few decades ago, if you said, “I have a relationship,” it meant much more. People had relationships with their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, friends… but today we have reduced our social discourse to such a level that if we say “relationship,” it must be a hormone-fired relationship.

The whole problem of constantly seeing people for their gender is something that has to go from the world. Why can’t you just look at human beings as they are? Why is it that you have to say “This is a woman, this is a man?” That is only needed for one type of relationship. There is no need to recognize and identify people for their body parts every moment in your life. If you must identify them by body parts, at least let’s choose the brain, not the reproductive organs.

A million love affairs

It’s quite common to find people today going about saying, “Love is the core of the universe.” Love is not the core of the universe. Believe me, love is just a human emotion. It’s a human need that two human beings can fulfill for each other. It is a certain sweetness of your emotion that you call as love. Unfortunately, most human beings are able to give that sweetness of emotion only to one person who will provide some physical satisfaction for them. Otherwise they cannot open up. It is time we understand that we can have very profound relationships without having anything to do with the physical body.

I am deeply involved, engaged and have love affairs with millions of people. I don’t know whether they reciprocate or not. I don’t know whether they like me or not, but I have a fabulous love affair with just about everyone that I see and cannot see, because for me, love is not about them. Love is about how I am within myself.

Connecting With the Earth

Connecting With the Earth

Sadhguru looks at how soil or earth is an ingredient in making our life, and gives us methods to connect with the earth so we can live healthy and experience life more profoundly.

Sadhguru: Every time I hear someone refer to soil as dirt, I can’t come to terms with it. Particularly when I am in the United States, I hear a lot of people calling earth as dirt. Maybe it is just another word, but in our mind, “dirt” means trash – something that you don’t want. I have heard it a thousand times, but something in me still cringes every time I hear this.

What you call as “my body” is just a piece of the planet – it is an accumulation of the food that you have eaten. You are just a small outcrop of this earth, nothing more nothing less. Right now you are an outcrop who prances around. After sometime you will become a small mound. So if you make the raw material into “dirt”, the product is bound to be dirt.

In India, for example in Tamil Nadu, we traditionally called soil as “thai mannu” – Mother Earth.

In India, for example in Tamil Nadu, we traditionally called soil as “thai mannu” – Mother Earth. In this culture, we see everything as ingredients of life. This is why we bow down to food, water, air, the sky, the sun, the moon, a stone, a tree – anything! We do not see anything as a commodity, as something that you can use and throw. You cannot use and throw anything in this existence. It passes through you, it is you for a certain period of time, after that it becomes something else. You are only a relay runner, you are not the runner on the planet.

The air that you are breathing right now, the very body that you carry right now, it has been millions of bodies in the past. It has been an insect, an animal, a snake, a cow, a monkey, a human being – I am not talking about the evolutionary process – I am talking about the soil going through every form of life. So this is not a commodity. This is older than you, wiser than you, far more intelligent and capable than you, and a far bigger process than you are as a person. You are a petty little character in this whole game that is happening.

Ojas – A Passage to Effortless Living

Ojas – A Passage to Effortless Living

Last week, Sadhguru looked at ojas, which “lubricates” our passage through existence. This week, he looks at what can help us build and also what dissipates ojas.

Sadhguru: When we eat food, generally for a human being, most of the food is converted into the physical body. A small part of it is becoming ojas. When you do your kriya, we are trying to change this ratio – we want to convert a large part of our food into ojas. A meditator is someone who has set up an industry of ojas. The whole process of kriya yoga is to turn this “factory” which makes food into flesh and shit, into a factory to transform the same food into a much subtler possibility, which makes you accessible to the divine.

When a person has a very huge ojas about him or her, everything that is celestial and considered divine becomes just like normal communication. You simply see and perceive things because your energies have become so subtle. The quality, the intensity, and the volume of ojas makes the difference between one human being and another. Why one human being’s presence seems to be so strong and transforming, and another’s weak, is simply because of the ojas they carry with them.

Right now, it is quite limiting and frustrating not to allow people to go into higher states of energy and ojas simply because people don’t have the necessary balance, preparedness, and discipline; or they are still unable to understand the priorities they need to allocate to different dimensions of their life. Quite a few people are experientially open and definitely capable of generating higher possibilities of energy, but modern life has made people absolutely fickle. People are simply shifting all the time, from this to that, whether it comes to jobs, priorities, education or relationships. In this shifting, a person’s energy also becomes unstable.

There are so many things that you can do to dissipate and destroy the growth of ojas in you. Improper attitudes, negative thoughts and emotions, and various types of mental activity can do that. Certain types of physical activity, excessive sexuality, excessive indulgence in food, too much of stimulants, and being in contaminated atmospheres can also do that. With kriyas and practices you fill the tank, but then you go on leaking the tank. It is because of this that it takes so long for a person.  If one knows how to plug all the holes, suddenly you will see the kind of energy that you gather around yourself is enormous.

Spirituality means going into processes that can enhance one’s ojas and change the very fundamentals of your life – to take you to a completely different experience and joy within yourself, a blissfulness which is not only yours, but which will be everyone’s around you. Your meditation is not only about yourself. If twenty-five people become truly meditative, the whole town will become peaceful without knowing why. Without having any idea about what is happening to them, there will be a certain sense of settling. The deeper one goes into it, the more of a device you become for everyone’s wellbeing.

It is not by blabbering good things that true peace and wellbeing will come. Only when people carry the right kind of energy around them, only when their ojas is such that a hundred people can sit under their shadow and experience it, only then wellbeing will truly happen.

Are Hereditary Diseases Completely Avoidable?

Are Hereditary Diseases Completely Avoidable?

Afraid of inheriting your father’s ‘famous’ blood pressure or mother’s ‘sweet-tooth’ diabetes? Take a look at hereditary ailments from the yogic perspective.

There is a common misconception among some that hereditary diseases are unavoidable. Many times, we hear people say things like, “Oh, high blood pressure? Well, my father had it so I’m sure I will too.”

But science tells us otherwise about multifactorial diseases like heart disease, diabetes, blood pressure, asthma, cancers, obesity, mental retardation and more. According to modern science, it is difficult to determine a person’s risk of inheriting or passing on these disorders due to the effects of other factors such as lifestyle and environment.

Presented below is an excerpt from Sadhguru’s talk with Dr. Sanjeev K. Chaudhry, CEO of Super Religare Laboratories (SRL), during a recent event in New Delhi. As a part of the conversation, Sadhguru touched upon how genetic ailments are viewed in the yogic tradition. The complete conversation can be viewed on YouTube.

Forgotten how to dream?

Forgotten how to dream?

Most of us have forgotten how to dream. We have exchanged our creativity for security. The current state of the world is a wakeup call that brings us back to our dreams and hopes. This is the time to realize that beyond us there is another, unlimited, energy in action. This energy will surpass our expectations, if only we trust. The more we remember our dream, the more we become alert for the coincidences and synchronicity that will bring us in its direction.

Spreading The Fragrance Of Happiness

Happiness filled interactions make you completely free from the different worries and tensions life will sometimes bring in front of you. Also, a life rich with happiness is the best to make yourself extremely stable and emotionally powerful. Just try this one day for yourself. Give happiness to each one you meet and try on another day, not doing that. The day you are busy in sharing and receiving happiness, that day you will feel stronger from within. Also, you will face all obstacles of different types easily and with more stability.

Also, such a day will pass very fast, as if you are on a joyride, sharing gifts with everyone, gifts that are invisible and of the inner personality. Gift your specialties to everyone. Don’t keep them with you. Have a big heart in giving them to others. Suppose, a person has the gift of speaking confidently, don’t keep that specialty to yourself. Use that speech to give happiness to each one and make everyone enthusiastic. Or you are very humble and have pure good wishes for everyone. Don’t keep the good wishes to yourself or inside you. Express them through your words and interactions and make everyone feel the happiness of your goodwill. Also, suppose you are very intelligent, help others through your personality and all the wisdom you possess, of different things of the world. These are ways of spreading happiness. Remember each specialty of yours should serve and not be kept inside you for your use only. Spread the fragrance of your specialties to everyone around you and life will become lovely and joyful, not only for you, but for others around you, also.

Familiarity breeds…..

 With the people we’re really friendly and comfortable with, and with the people we spend a lot of time with, all too often our behaviour becomes too familiar, and as a result, respect and basic manners gradually disappear.

This week, reflect and re-evaluate the role of familiarity in your relationships with family, friends and at work.

Remember, informality and appropriate familiarity has its place but so does maintaining respect and basic manners.

 

Message for the day

Every reaction to situations is a reflection of one’s own self-respect.

The Dawn of a New Year

To make good use of what you have and to let go of what you do

not use is to live in a contented way.

The dawn of a new year is a time for new possibilities.

Let go of the past and give birth to new possibilities.

Wishing one and all a Wonderful and promising New Year

A well-nourished heart is automatically giving and full of grace. We can nourish our hearts with the energy of positive thoughts and pure feelings. When we realize we are eternal souls, beings of consciousness rather than Matter, and that our original nature is benevolent and wise, the heart grows full. When we remember, with love, that we are the offspring of an eternal Parent, a source of eternal truth, the heart overflows. This is the greatest gift we can offer to each other and the world in the year ahead.

The Benefits Of Togetherness Over Isolation

Nowadays, there are more and more people who are choosing to live alone. Perhaps the reason for that are experiences in the past of pain, peacelessness, rejection, disappointment or failure when living together, in a relationship or even more than one relationship. As a result, the preference for living alone sets inside them. Perhaps, it is their alternative search for peace, happiness and success that leads them to make this decision. Also, the belief that if you live alone, you are free and you can do what you want, when you want and without having to explain yourself to anyone. But are we, as human beings, basically by nature, meant to live together or to live alone? Each human being has the need to belong and provide that feeling to others. You can belong to a family, a group of friends, a bunch of close school or college students, some office colleagues, a club, a community, a religious group etc. The mere presence of others; the participation, communication and collaboration with others; the assistance provided to others and received from them and the sharing of positive energy with others in a group; inspires and challenges us and others immensely. The same can happen, if we are staying alone, but to a limited extent. Greater inner spiritual empowerment takes place inside those who live and work together, not those who distance themselves from others. In a group, we broaden our limits and make our heart bigger when we do things for others that we wouldn’t do for ourselves.

Each human being is a source of love for others. It is a basic human nature to love and be loved, which is not possible unless there is some kind of unity or mutual belonging. Distancing or isolating oneself implies an absence of love, neither given or shared, neither received.

A Message For The New Year 

Happy New Year !!! a greeting exchanged Every Year on 1st Jan.
But are we really happy and has the year been new.

As we begin the New Year with powerful greetings and blessings for all our family and friends,
Let us take a moment to greet ourselves. To promise ourselves a year full ofLove, Peace and Happiness.

Let us leave behind what we don’t need to carry …
Hurt, Sadness, Pain, Fear and Regrets, because we have a choice and the power.

Let us take a moment to reflect on one of our most common beliefs – * It’s not me, it’s them.
An illusion that someone else is responsible for what we think, feel and do, making ourselves a slave to that person or that situation.

Let us release this belief and allow the truth to emerge and establish itself within our consciousness.
The truth is always simple, * It’s not them, it’s me. Always.
We have a choice in our every response. We can maintain a calm, positive, stable response regardless of what happens around us.

Let’s remember the mantra to change our life from being a slave to being a master –
* It’s not what others say or do to me that makes me feel this way, it’s what I do with what they say that makes me feel this way.
Now choose how you would like to feel.

As we start making our choices, this year will be truly New and Happy.

Do Past Lives Determine the Form We Are Born In?

Do Past Lives Determine the Form We Are Born In?

Sadhguru answers a question on whether one’s past life can affect their body and form in their present life.
Foetus - Do Past Lives Determine the Form We Are Born In?

Sadhguru answers a question on whether one’s past life can affect their body and form in their present life.

Question: When someone reincarnates, does one usually come back as the same gender?

Sadhguru: Not necessarily at all. There are people around me who are of a different gender now than what they were in an earlier life. I have a very immediate experience of this in many different ways with quite a few people.

Gender, even species, need not necessarily be the same. All this could be determined by your tendencies. It happens to people, it happened around certain yogis, and it definitely happened around Gautama Buddha. It so happened that a lot of monkswere reborn as women. When they had sat with the Buddha [in their past lives], the male monks greatly exceeded the women in numbers – mainly due to cultural reasons. In those days, a woman could not renounce when the children were below a certain age.

So the monks who sat there as men, noticed one thing – the female monks’ contact with the Buddha seemed to be better than that of the male monks. This was because it is very natural for a woman to make a very deep emotional contact. These men were sitting and meditating hard, but these women were just looking at the Buddha, and tears were flowing down. They loved him and the Buddha looked at them gently. The men envied that.

Somewhere within them, there was a longing to be connected with the Buddha like the women were. Because of that longing, a lot of those monks came back as women in their next birth. After a certain period of time, they realized who they had been, and that now they had become women. They were shocked, “We did so much sadhana – did Gautama abandon us? Why didn’t he make us monks once again? Now we are here with our children, our husbands, and this whole drama.” This happened because they had envied the women.

What gender or form you take is determined by the type of longing that you create. Let’s say you long to eat continuously and you happen to die at that time. The next time, you may come back as someone’s pet pig.

Depending upon your longings, depending upon your tendencies, nature gives you an appropriate body. Let’s say you long to eat continuously and you happen to die at that time. The next time, you may come back as someone’s pet pig, really well-fed. People think it is a punishment to come back as a pig. This is not a punishment for you. Nature is not thinking in terms of punishment or reward. Depending upon your tendencies, to fulfill those tendencies, what kind of body would assist you best, that is what you get. Now these monks came back as women. It was their tendency, their longing for what the women were having. When they were longing for the women’s ability to love the Buddha and connect with him emotionally, they unknowingly aspired to become women.

What gender or form you take is determined by the type of longing that you create. So, to maintain focus on your goal and create that longing which is beyond all these limitations is the best way to ensure that nature does not know what to do with you. When nature does not know what to do with you, it is good for you because you can work your things out very effortlessly. When nature knows what to do with you, you are put in this chamber or that chamber – male chamber or female chamber, pig chamber, cockroach chamber, or some other chamber – a body is a chamber.

So if you maintain that longing which is not for this or that, you simply stare at nothingness and are absorbed, now nature does not know what to do with you. It cannot push you this way or that way. It cannot make a decision on you.

How To Eat Properly – 5 Tips For Healthy Eating

How To Eat Properly – 5 Tips For Healthy Eating

How we eat food is as important as what we eat. These 5 simple food tips that look at how to eat properly can serve as a guide and help a person get the best out of the food they eat.

 

# 1: How Much To Eat?

Studies have found that the human brain works best when the stomach is empty. Researchers found that an empty stomach produces ghrelin, a hormone that carries the message to the brain that the stomach is hungry. The interesting thing is that this hormone seems to perform other functions as well. Ghrelin stimulates and heightens the performance of the hippocampus, the region in the brain that handles learning, memory and spatial analysis, keeping us alert, active and focused. This of course doesn’t imply that we should never eat, but rather points to the fact that we should be conscious of how much we eat. Yogi and mystic, Sadhguru, elaborates on how we can get the best out of our day by optimizing our consumption of food.

“You shouldn’t keep eating through the day. If you are below thirty years of age, three meals a day will fit well into your life. If you are over thirty, it is best to reduce it to two meals a day. Our body and brain work at their best only when the stomach is empty. Be conscious and eat in such a way that within two-and-a-half hours, the food moves out of the stomach bag, and within twelve to eighteen hours, it is completely out of the system. If you maintain this simple awareness, you will experience much more energy, agility and alertness.” – Sadhguru

# 2: Chew On This!

The second of our food tips for healthy eating is something you’ve probably heard your parents tell you a million times as a kid: Chewing your food properly plays an important role in digestion. Studies show that for starchy foods, 30% of digestion happens with saliva. After a meal, give a break of at least two hours before going to bed. Digestion raises your metabolic activity. If you sleep in such a state, you will neither sleep well nor digest well! Depending on what you ate, a large portion of the food can go undigested if you sleep immediately after eating.

Sadhguru also gives us the yogic perspective on chewing your food.

“In yoga we say, ‘If you take a morsel of food, you must chew it twenty-four times.’ There is a lot of science behind this, but essentially, one thing is your food gets pre-digested in your mouth and will not cause dullness in your system. Another thing is, if you chew twenty-four times, the information of that food gets established in your system and every cell in your body will be able to start judging as to what is right and not right for you – not in terms of the tongue but about what is appropriate for the whole system. If you do this for some time, every cell in the body will have the education as to what it likes and does not like.” – Sadhguru

It is also advisable to avoid drinking water during meals. Drink a little water a few minutes before the meal or thirty to forty minutes after the meal. Drinking water can be left standing overnight in a copper vessel. This destroys bacteria, and energizes the water powerfully. Copper surfaces tested in hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs) have been found to kill 97% of the bacteria that are capable of causing hospital-acquired infections.

# 3: The Right Food For The Right Time

Sadhguru elaborates on the tradition of eating different foods in different seasons, and how this practice helps the body cope with changing weather.

“In India and especially in South India, during summer, the food is cooked in one way, during the rainy season in another way and in winter another way, according to the vegetables available at that time and what is suitable for the body. It is good to bring in that wisdom and eat as per the needs of the body and according to the weather or climate we live in.

For example, when December comes, there are certain foods which produce heat in the body like sesame and wheat. In winter, the skin usually breaks because the climate becomes cold and people don’t traditionally use creams and things like that. So, everyone ate sesame on a daily basis. It keeps the body warm and the skin clean. With lots of heat in the body your skin won’t break. In summer the body gets hot. So, cooling foods were eaten. For example, in Tamil Nadu, they eat kambu (pearl millet). These things were fixed so that the body is able to adjust itself for that season.” – Sadhguru

# 4: A Balanced Diet

Number three among our tips on how to eat properly is a pretty obvious one: maintaining a balanced diet. But you needn’t get caught up in the confusing maze of vitamins, carbohydrates, proteins and what not, and try to balance it all out. Sadhguru explains a few basics that will help maintain a balanced diet. He looks at the importance of bringing in enough vegetables, lentils, pulses and multiple types of grains in our diet.

“Today, doctors are saying that nearly 80 million Indians are heading to be diabetic. One of the reasons for this is because most Indian people are on a single-cereal diet. People are eating either only rice or only wheat. This can definitely cause health problems. It is important to bring in a multigrain diet in one’s life.

Traditionally, people always ate lots of grams, pulses, legumes and many kinds of grains. But slowly those things have gone away, and if you look at a South Indian’s plate today, there will be so much rice and just a little bit of vegetable. This is a serious problem. This shift to a total carbohydrate diet that has happened in the last twenty-five or thirty years needs to be reversed because a person’s long-term health will be seriously affected if they just eat lots of carbohydrate and very little of other things. This is a basic conceptual change which needs to happen in people’s minds. The majority of the diet should not be rice but all the other things. Rice is your choice – whether you want to eat or not, you decide according to your hunger levels.” – Sadhguru

# 5: There Are No Good Food Habits!

In the last of our food tips for healthy eating, Sadhguru reminds us that food is about the body, and the best way to decide what to eat is to ask the body. He explains that rather than developing eating habits which only make us function repetitively, it is better to decide on our food consciously through our intelligence.

Contemplation: The Secret Of Good Health

Contemplation: The Secret Of Good Health

The secret of good health is good nourishment and exercise. We need daily nourishing food and exercise to maintain a healthy body and it takes care and attention to fulfill this responsibility. Making the effort underlines our value and importance as a human being.
 
However, the human spirit needs the same attention in the form of the thoughts we have and how the mind puts them to use. Feeding both body and mind with nourishing food gives a powerful and consistent message to respect and co-operate with one another. This is holistic good health.
To be a master means to experience inner power in a practical way.
Each one has a lot of powers within, which we can use in our daily
life while dealing with practical situations. Knowledge of these
powers is of course there within each one. And along with it there is
an intention to use them too. But during the time when it is necessary
to use them, it becomes difficult to make them practical. So the
powers within are just wasted away. We need to learn the art of using
the right power at the right time. With the recognition of the powers
within us we also need to develop the consciousness of being a master.
As a master we just need to order whatever power we need at that time
and these powers will surely come to serve us. We will then surely be
victorious in all situations.

Unloading Your Pressure Baggage 

Can we experience freedom only when there is an absence of outside pressure? We feel pressured from many sides. At work, we feel the pressure to do tasks as per fixed guidelines of set systems and within boundaries of time, of keeping up our performance as per others’ expectations and as good as our compatriots. In relationships, we feel the pressure of experiencing success in them, of satisfying others and gaining respect from them. In studies, we feel the pressure of having to excel in them, not only because that is instrumental in building our future but because of the desire to be seen in a positive light by others. We feel the pressure of having to earn more and more wealth to satisfy the necessities, comforts and luxuries of the family and to maintain a certain image in society. In the face of problems, we feel pressure when we are not able to solve them quickly or in the way that we want. Failure or its fear, in any sphere of life, generates pressure in us. Sometimes we experience pressure because the mind is not functioning as per our desires or directions or we are not able to transform our negative personality to a positive one as much as we want. When we believe that something harmful can happen if we don’t reach our set objectives on time or in a certain manner, we feel pressured. Physical illnesses or their fear can also create pressure for some of us.
And so life turns into an endless amount of pressure crests, like speed breakers that appear one after the other, unsettling us and not giving us time to relax. When we feel pressured, it seems that the life forces rule our life and we do not feel free. In the long-term, this repetitive habit of creating feelings of pressure and carrying such baggage ends up leaving us exhausted on an emotional and spiritual level.
Soul Sustenance 
The Faculties Of The Soul 
When the soul is in the body it functions through three faculties (non-physical entities). Although each faculty (entity) can be given a different name, it is actually the same energy, the soul, functioning on three different levels simultaneously. These are the mind, the intellect and the sanskaras.
Mind is the thinking energy of the soul. It is the mind that imagines, thinks and forms ideas. The thought process is the basis of all emotions, desires and sensations. It is through this faculty that, in an instant, thoughts can be projected to a far off place (one can travel to a far off place on the thought level); past experiences and emotions can be relived or even the future anticipated in less than a second. It is the mind that experiences the variations of moods. The mind is an energy of the non-physical soul, not to be confused with the heart or even the brain.
Message for the day 
As is our thought, so we will become.
Truly Precious

Truly Precious

More valuable than the things we give to each other are the gifts of virtues we pass on quietly to others through our selfless and noble actions. These gifts are truly precious because they are imperishable and they multiply the more we share them.

Breaking The Cycle Of Negative Energy Exchanges 

To conclude, we all know that every individual is inherently good. A little shade of the incorrect or improper personality exists inside each one, however light the shade is. We also know that this shade was not there originally in the soul but is an acquired one. And also the person with the shade does become aware of it in times of solitude and also is making an effort to remove it so that no discomfort or sorrow is caused to anyone because of it. Along with the negative shades every person possesses many positive personality traits which are their strengths. Now when we are having an exchange of negative energies with such a person, what does a spiritually sensible person do, look at those light shades of negativity which are coming into action at that time or focus on so many positive colours of the personality of the other, colours that we have seen or heard about from others many times in the past. Also, an accompanied realization that even I have my share of negative shades which I am working on erasing, makes this vision easy to practice.

Practiced consistently, this kind of positive vision accompanied by a deep hearted appreciation of the positive personality colours of the other person is mercy in action, which is a shade of pure soul-to-soul love. Such appreciation makes it easier for others to reflect on and see what they need to do to change. But the first impact of this appreciation is on me, in keeping me free of negative and waste internally. So appreciating the other’s strengths in my mind and emerging them in my consciousness at such a time is very important as this not only keeps my perception, which is susceptible to being influenced by the negative at that time, clean, but also reaches the other person on a vibrational level and he/she is inspired and empowered to bring those strengths into action, as a result playing his/her part to end the negative energy exchange. This is spirituality at its most magical. I’ll not only have removed a source of pain, which is the negative shade of the other’s personality in this case, which is coming into action; I’ll have grown spiritually as well.

Make the problem smaller and you’ll find solutions easily.

 

Problems come and go.  Keep thinking about a problem again and again, and you make it bigger and more challenging than it really is!

So instead of magnifying, downsize your problems.

To learn the art of controlling is to steer through life’s situations easily.
