Today, my day was attempting to be stressful and there was huge pressure from work and I could just feel this cloud gover over me, ready to collapse at any time. Even though, the perception would be that the cloud is light, not this one. The cloud of stress is heavy.
In these times, I try to remain mindful, observe my surroundings and try and be a little bit positive. Even when it is tough to do so, I try not to stop smiling. However, that doesnt mean I just cope. In certain circumstances, when I have felt misused or taken advantage of, I end up looking for new opportunities.
The one thing that I do when looking for new opportunities is to make sure that I remain positive and optimistic. It is important that a sense of peace and happiness should be done in the search for new opportunities. The energy that we give out to our environment, is the energy that is most likely to continue. So if it is negative, negative will be the environment, positive and positive will be the environment.
I will not lie that today I felt like I was being crushed, overwhelmed and somehow thrown under the bus but I only allow that to happen if I accept that it is happening in my consciousness. Instead I turned those feelings to this is a challenge and opportunity to show my resilience and initiative.
I hope your day went well and share with me, how you have dealt with such situations.
First of all, I would like to thank you all for your patience but also ask for forgiveness. It has been a long time since I have written on this blog and to be honest I have missed it completely!
I am coming back on to the writing side of things after trying out video blogs, which I shall carry out in the future sometime but not yet. I think it is essential to carry on writing and not underuse this sacred talent.
The journey of life is not really about what we do but how we feel. Ultimately, acts remain as acts but your contentment matters more. Did your actions fulfill you? Did they give you some sort of purpose? They say that life is meaningless. But I have taken a new meaning out of that! When your life has a meaning, it becomes less. Now…what the hell do I mean by that is what you are wondering? Well, once we have a life of meaning, we as an individual cease and we become more universal. Ultimately, our goal in life is to become universal in thought and action. We need to be thinking of new ways to bring the world together. That does not mean that we ignore the bad things about life! These issues need to be addressed and not only that but we need to look at where they stand in the universal framework.
I was once asked, not long ago mind you, probably last week sometime. ‘Are you a Nirankari?’ This is due to my regular attendance at their gatherings and also my complete admiration and devotion to the Nirankari Spiritual Teacher. I explained this to my companion but I told him something that needed to be made clear. I replied ‘Above all, I am of the Universal Soul and I speak only for humanity. Everything else is just a label and that is none of my business. I hate labels and if anything gives me a label, I am ready to peel it away.’ I further explained that labels are something that suggest something is not permanent or that you owe something to that label. That label gives you superiority over your individuality. Ultimately, I rather be known as someone who is rebellious rather than someone who conforms. Rebellion does not mean that you are unsettled. I think that is a very naive way of thinking. Rebellion means you are settled in your individuality and now you want the world to be at peace. The best way to get people to understand you is by making them think again. By making them wonder again. By allowing them to stand back and feel like an individual. Then when you find others who have a common cause – then you know your consciousness is not only individual but has become part of the universal consciousness!
That is all for now my friends and I hope you enjoyed it.
Keep your good wishes close to me and may I always serve you with my writing.
