Cue The Magic!

One word. Wow.

Until this point, gratitude seemed to be opening doors for me, breaking barriers for me, helping me glide through circumstances in the outside world.

 This practice made me realize that there is no 'outside' world, myself and the Universe. There is One thing and that all these meaningless battles and plans and so-called victories and successes were a sham. The reality is Perfection.

This is a thriving Universe with the centre of Power being Me and You. Everything is effortless, LOVE is THE FORCE behind it all and we get to decide everything.

There was never a 'Me' against 'the world' and I had never gained a new ammunition in the name of gratitude to pave my way through life.

It was a bloody illusion and it took this practice to show me that.

How does it do that???

It instils a new belief. That is all it does. A belief that the Universe is always trying to communicate with me and trying to show me all the things there are to love and to be grateful for.

 I feel that the truth is so much more profound than visualizing a Universe ( even a friendly Universe) outside of myself and watching out for signs from it.

But just this belief breaks down so many other barriers to Freedom which we have instilled into our daily lives. So it is plenty more than enough to start with.

Realising and knowing that the Universe is conspiring on my behalf cancelled out the fear faculty in my head. It instead, lets the good thoughts and feelings take full control with no inhibitions at all. Which was when I finally saw things the way they were meant to be looked at.

I saw the wonder in every morning. The flutter of leaves in the morning breeze. The people in my life who were helping me beyond reason. The love and the laughter. The hints and beginnings of my wished upon life. The glamour and the hotness .

There was so much happening all of a sudden and there was also this startling realisation that it( all this amazing goodness) had always existed for me and this was just the moment I had chosen to finally see. It made me wonder of all that was still hidden to me and that made grateful for the eternity in front of me, to experience it all.

This practice is like a remainder , I guess. Reminding me to remember what I am part of. It reminds me of my power over my life by making me choose what I want to see.

It urges us to take 7 Cues from the Universe as we go on with our day. We then say Thank you for that thing and get on with the day with a slightly altered perspective than what would have been, had it just have been a normal day.

Seeing someone I love acts as a cue for me to be grateful for all the love in my life. Seeing a funny event cues me to be grateful for a beautiful childhood.

Each cue we take is so uniquely designed for us and whatever we feel grateful for because of that cue IS the perfect end to that cue. A single cue is different for each one of us, because only we get to decide what it is a cue for. It is an awesome game and is so much fun , as much as it is a learning experience. The Perfect Game , if you will.

Day25:

I am grateful for for finger nails because they are super handy to open tight lids, pick up coins off the floor and scratch myself .

I am grateful for hunger and thirst

without which pleasure, admiration, satiation and satisfaction could not feel so glorious!

I am grateful for eyelids to close my eyes because I get to sleep during broad daylight!

I am grateful for having so many interests and passions and for so many open doors in life because my life is always buzzing with excitement and action!

I am grateful for having read about an artist's eyes which sees the extraordinary in everything that forever changed my perspective of life!

 

I am grateful for words like 'perspective' , 'awesome', 'soulful', and 'revelation' because they bring to me , a feeling of satisfaction and peace when I use them.( plain craziness more likely but still. Totally grateful!)

I am grateful for hair having immortal growth rate because I can experiment any which way with my hair and it keeps replacing itself and I get to have an amazing adventure , purely hair-based all my life!!!( in addition to every other adventure!)

I am grateful for inspiration, motivation and guidance available aplenty because of which every single moment is more magical than the last!

I am grateful for milk powder because fresh milk anytime, anywhere!

I am grateful for sudden announcements of days off and unexpected holidays which add an element of exhilaration into daily life!!!

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,…
