Ventures into Love : Day 1

Hiyaaaaaaa!!!! I am so excited about this! I am going to begin a 'blog journal entry..' thingy about this thirty day project.
To be more precise, Mike Dooley's Love your Life in 30 Days Project. Considering that this project blossoms into existence every January, starting from the New Year Day, I might be slightly off with this, beginning it in July( July 2 nonetheless). Well, I believe that every moment in time is a chance to start over, a chance for beginning afresh, because there ain’t nobody keeping account of you, babe!
The first day begins bright and shiny because we get to 'Get Clear with Our Priorities'.


We have to name at least five general areas in life in which we wish to see change and transformation in. And the idea here is to let go and think of a bigger picture, a bigger, more open idea of how you want your life to be like. For example, instead of going 'I want a wardrobe with the hottest of S/S 18’ or 'I want an air ticket for a ‘round the world’ trip’, we keep it general. We pick 'Money' as the area of change. Or 'Adventure'. See? General, light, breezy and easy.
Choosing a general area for change instead of attaching to specific details allows so much room for exciting possibilities.
Frankly speaking, this project is a huge relief to me. Talk about ultimate liberation from any kind of pressure! You don’t have to chase your dreams ( phew!). And , you don’t have to know what you want either!
 Having to know exactly what you want can be a heavy burden to bear, when you have this huge sense of doubt about what you actually want; what if you choose wrong?
And I have experienced the weight of attachments in times when a particular event, object or situation I was gripping to, slips away despite my hardest efforts. And the moment it leaves, I don’t feel sad. Instead, I feel this feeling of extraordinary peace and humongous relief.
Sometimes, confusion and fear abounds about making choices. What if we choose wrong?
All these worries and fears go right out of the window with this way of defining life goals.
 Besides, what is it that we actually want?
To feel good, to feel powerful, loved and in love, extraordinary and amazing, exhilarated and surprised, excited and happy… and it goes on and on.
But our goals are rarely painted in this way.
 We usually have this list of material things that we think will eventually give us all that was in the above list.
Sometimes, we get it right! That aromatherapy set( guilty😁) might actually be the solution for harmonious evenings. But many other times, we get it horrendously wrong. That is because what we see with our physical senses is so limited that it is impossible to see the magical unseen at work.
Keeping it general however, takes all that burden away, just like that.
So, here I am, declaring my general areas of change, listed according to priority:
1. Health
2. Abundance
3. Prosperity
4. Career
5. Family
Okay, I couldn’t resist. Here’s five more:
6. Spirituality
7. Creativity
8. Adventure
9. Love
10. Harmony
That’s it for today! Tata till tomorrow!😘😘😘

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,…
