Magic Mirror

Change the person in the mirror and your world will change.

The world is the reflection of our insides. And I do not mean our intestines and whatnot because that would be kind of gross. No, I mean our minds. The external is a result of what is going on in the inside and this has so many facets to it.

A lot of my friends and a few of my family received this piece of insight with quite a lot of apprehension. But it is the truth nonetheless.

How we think determines how we see the world. How we feel determines what we notice. Our ideas and beliefs shape our life as we take actions in line with these beliefs.

So to change the outside world is effortless, for it requires a slight tweaking onthe inside. The best way to do anything, be it creste or bring change, undo or redo, is to get to the core. And the core of life is our self and who we are as a person. The core of everything is how we look at ourselves and how we treat ourselves.

Which means, giving to ourselves what we most want in life is the only way to get what we most want in life. Confusing, eh?

Look at it this way. When you want love in your life, it is because you feel as if it were missing in your life. Is that not why we want anything? We want to fill that empty space we feel.

 But that empty space was created in the first place by ourselves. What we did not give to ourselves manifested as that empty space. While it is not wrong to fill up your life with all that you think will bring in the love, and wishing for more, you will never ever fill that space unless you get to the core.

And that is really really easy! Using gratitude, the highest form of love one can express , is the key to abundance in life!

Get to the nearest mirror or any reflective surface and really look at yourself. Look at all that you are and become aware of your presence and your amazing innate goodness.( it is there in every single one of us) Say 'Thank You' with all your heart for who you are and for everything that you represent.

Thank yourself with the maximum amount of gratitude you can summon, which should be more than all the feelings of gratitude you have felt for other things. And if you donot feel that level of gratitude, take this opportunity to show yourself the importance of your presence for you to experience life. If you were not there, none of life would matter. But you are present and you feel all these beautiful emotions and experience all these amazing things in life and so you matter more than anything else. Recognize and realize what you mean to yourself in life.

Think of three things you most love about yourself and say thank you for that. Keep doing this each time you see yourself in the mirror for the entire day!

Day 27:

I am grateful for our society setting and governments and community living because help is abundant and effortlessly available at all times!

I am grateful for reconcilations with my sister that remind me of how lucky I am to have her in my life!

I am grateful for a mom who is the epitome of all things fun and crazy because she makes life a whole lot interesting for me just by being herself!

I am grateful for each waking moment being full of the realisation and awareness that I am in fact, living the life of my dreams!

I am grateful for areas away from the coast because they are able to help the coast people during floods, providing relief and life.

I am grateful for mornings everyday, that dawn so beautifully and prep you for the potential amazing things that the day could hold!

I am grateful for gasoline because it lets us cook and heat stuff even when there is no electricity.

I am grateful for sad songs and sad story books that celebrate even sorrow, showing that anything can be celebrated in life!

I am grateful for toast, so fulfilling and aromatic, perfectly crispy and soft and life giving!

I am grateful for handy nail cutters that clip my nails down to perfection, driving my hands into safety zone.

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
