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. 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
