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. Eventu

Ventures Into Love: Day 8

Sometimes, our traps are so simple. The keys to these traps can be right there and yet, we fail to see them. Until we do. And realise that there was no need for repairs from the outside. It was us the whole damn time.  For me, the last practice( playing the detective) was mind boggling because I am now discovering so many words that I use which don’t serve me in the very least. And the fun part is so fun: choosing a new thought along the lines of a belief that is better suited for me is so much better than shopping! Today’s activity goes into this very same practice with a more specific goal at heart; to identify and change a story you are telling. This might be any kind of a story – a story that explains and justifies why you are the way you are, or a story that makes it okay for you to not be happier, a story that you think is true of yourself a story you feel trapped by, a story of neglect, a story for lack of compassion – that you tell to yourself or to others. Basically,

It's okay.

It’s okay. It’s okay to try and not get it right. It’s okay to not even try in the first place. It’s okay to hold on real tight and you don’t want to let go even though you know it hurts.  It’s okay to love the wrong things. It’s okay to love the right things. It’s okay to be confused about life. It’s okay to feel proud of your saunter. It’s okay to hate your life too. It’s okay to want to change. It’s okay to want to stay exactly as you are. It’s okay to want to leave. Its okay to never want to leave. It’s okay to feel annoyed. It’s okay to feel happy doing nothing. It’s okay to want to do something. It’s okay to want help. It’s okay to not want to take help. It’s okay to be selfish. It’s okay to be selfless. It’s okay to love with abandon. It’s okay to not want to love with abandon. It’s okay to be afraid of the dark. It’s okay to like being in the dark too. It’s okay to be afraid of facing the light. It’s okay if you can’t find the light. It’s okay if you wan
