Magic Morning!

Mornings are magical, aren't they?

You go to sleep and then BAM!

 A new day! New events!

New! New! New! It is the best self renewal plan ever! A fresh start, a new beginning, a chance to rock out better than ever...Added to it is that though it is renewal, it is a 'new' new.
You get the same day , only it is nothing similar to the days before. All that it holds is completely different. There are never two days exactly alike!
Life is an adventure all right!
And mornings signify the beginning of a brand new something. Every problem, every worry, every instant and thought from the past presents itself in a new light in the morning.
This magical practice, takes the magic in every morning and makes it more potent, extending it into and through the entire day.You begin by recognising the magic that has befallen you. And what better way to recognise the good things in life other than through gratitude?

You go about your daily business up until you are ready, filling up each and every action with gratitude until it is soaking wet with good feelings.
I usually extend the practice as far into the day as I possibly can. And each time I do it, another one of my mind numbing routines become an enthralling experience!
 For instance, this dorm I stay at only has cold water gushing out of the taps. Cold mornings and cold water? Brrrrrrr....Taking baths became a waking nightmare literally.




When I started this practice , I realised that the cold water wasn't making me cringe; it was my dread that made the experience awful. So I first started out saying 'Thank you' for the fresh water. It was then that it struck me: Cold water was like a cold breeze.




It awoke every fibre of my being and made me tingle with excitement all over. Which meant that  the routine I had been forced into was actually ensuring excitement and joy in my day by awakening me from deep within, making me alert to the wonder of the day!

                                                YAY FOR COLD WATER!

Rhonda Byrne says that when you saturate your mornings with gratitude, your day ahead will be filled with magic and every thing seems to go your way. I always feel that when I finish this practice, I am so so full of joy and love that I don't much care how things go in my day. Everything becomes a cause for joy! I go a bit crazy which is always the best way to have fun!
Day 12:
I am grateful for this amazing view from new room in my hostel because I feel like I live in a tree house in a lush forest!
I am grateful for the abundance of space inside my room because I can whirl, twirl and loose my head, dancing without any furniture to interrupt me!
I am grateful for the two weeks of holidays that are upon me because I feel so excited about it!
I am grateful for the smell of fresh morning air that fills me with the deepest sense of contentment and bliss!
I am grateful for the overload of musicians, singers and songs because there can never be too much music!
I am grateful for being able to alternate between pants and skirts because skirts mean great ventilation
and pants mean freedom to move about any way I like!

I am grateful for my short hair because all it needs is a  shake and swipe and I am good!




I am grateful for cotton clothes because they are so freakin' comfortable with their softness and feel blissful during warm days!
I am grateful for us having both long term and short term memory because long term means we get to remember the happy moments forever and short term means we can forget our troubles in an instant!

I am grateful for windows because when they are shut, Yay for privacy!
And when they are wide open, Yay for awesome scintillating wind!

Ventures into Love - Day 12

Here’s how life is supposed to work; how we are taught that the world works, how we are supposed to integrate into the mayhem:
Dream big. Work for it. Be bold. Go for it NOW. Have a vision. Break the steps down into bite sized pieces and keep making progress every single day.

I am actually feeling slightly breathless, just typing those words.
The thing is, this kind of pushing and prodding, this complete reliance over one's willpower that stems from the brain and it’s storehouse of experiences filtered through beliefs that alter the experience to a nutshell of what really is, is frankly exhausting.
Sure, when we face a particularly trying situation or we are subject to an enrapturing inspiring speech, we feel charged up and energetic.
We feel like we have so much to offer, so much that we can do, so much energy to run all the way to the top, that we enthusiastically take steps, turn over new stones, meet people, network and feel euphoric.
For some time, that is.
Eventually, we re…

Ventures Into Love : Day 17

You know that awesome tingly 'I have so got this! Things are going to rock from here on!' feeling that blossoms in your gut when you take up something new, start out on a new journey and the likes?

For example, the first day of a new exercise routine, or the beginning of a new hobby… the beginning of a new job, the first great conversation with a nice person we really like, the start of a new self – help book…
Any beginning by choice and passion is a cause for joy and I think I speak for everyone when I say that.
Have you also noticed how that this feeling is confined to the beginning only, in many scenarios in life?
I'll go with an example from my own life..
Whenever I read an awesome saucy 'self help' book, I feel psyched out and buzz – filled! I write down my dreams and I take the steps happily, genuinely excited about the changes I am helping bring about…
Then comes the second stage… that stage where the previously lovely ideas and wishes and hopes start feeli…

Ventures Into Love: Day 14

When I am in my room, I find it so easy to focus on the truth of me; how loved I am, that love is all there is, I am powerful beyond imagination… the works.


 But when I am in a crowd, in class, standing in line, waiting with a group of people, I find it so hard to focus. Impossible even.

All those affirmations, beliefs and practices go right out of the window, in such situations and I am left wondering about the usefulness of  enlightenment, if it doesn’t aid you in moments of need.

I think I am not alone in this. We have all been in situations where the group's energy and currents have engulfed us completely, beyond the scope of clarity.

When we are in a group, fully aware of our body and the surrounding physical world, we begin relying on our mortal strength and knowingness.
In other words, the ego takes charge.
We can’t help but let it take charge, because it is the only way we can see in the moment to get out of the suffering. And the endless narrations and suggestions begin,…
