Ventures Into Love : Day 11

I read the Secret when I was in the 9th grade and I remember feeling all pumped up and excited; I felt liberated, the possibilities were endless and everything seemed beautiful.

And then, life happened. 

I won’t lie and say that this sudden revelation slipped into oblivion; more like, my excitement over discovering the ultimate truth of life shadowed everything else. My ingrained beliefs about the limited sources in this world, the ideas and thoughts that had been with me for such a long time, got mixed up with my releasing revelations to yield a bittersweet reality - A reality that showed me a taste of what could be
 and shoved a whole load of junk in the form of why I couldn’t have what I wanted.

In other words, it was not enough. And by it, I mean the empowering and inspiring words of truth that had hinted at my true nature to me, which was just the stepping stone , for greater clarity.

What I did was treat the truth as a tool that would help me get a handle on life.
In other words, I separated my life, the Secret, the world and myself into different entities; I saw them as things with no connection to one another.
And I missed the truth, just like that.
Then, The Magic happened.
I went through 28 days of diligent gratitude as per the instructions of the book and I felt incredible. I saw the changes in myself and my life; I felt more alive and connected than ever.
I attributed this extraordinary peace I had suddenly received, to the book.
I continuously repeated the practices over several months, with each month leading to more and more confusion.
This was when I started my subscription to Notes from the Universe.
And my life opened up like a blossoming sunflower, in the morning light.

I realised my power in all its glory and I felt free.
For a few months.
The Notes made sense but I was not feeling liberated.
My gratitude practices started feeling like a chore.
I decided to then let go of trying to make sense of all this and decided to give myself a break.
I decided, what the hell, reality without trying to figure the underlying code wasn’t that bad, surely.
And I had fun for a few months, pretending that life was happening to me.
Again, the peace and joy lasted a few months.
I fell sick, then. Again and again. 
Despite all my efforts to be healthy, I was experiencing a significant lack in health and vitality.

I decided to get back to my practices and I felt the change in my health, almost immediately.
I swore never to deviate from the spiritual practices I had learnt.
And then, I fell sick. Again.

This was the moment of truth for me!
Despite my efforts in spiritual righteousness, I had fallen sick.
Finally, finally, I realised that my Source was not that book.

It was me.
Al this time, it had been me.
The book had changed my life because of me.
I had experienced all that I had experienced because I had decided to experience it.
I had missed the core truth of all the wonderful teachings I had received.
This world, according to several life coaches, spiritual teachers and the like, is very primitive.
A thought, that severely contradicts several of our beliefs. Most of us think that we live in the age of extraordinary development and success.
True, when we look outside and away, everything is shiny, sleek and fast.  

 Technological advancements are soaring. Every activity in our daily lives is getting easier and easier. 
Yet, we are nowhere near the satisfaction we expect off of these magnanimous manifestations.

The more we achieve as a civilization, the more we attribute our achievements to 'sources' that are anything, but the Source.
We pretend to be hamsters caught in a wheel of pointlessness when we are anything but. We then pretend we have a higher purpose and start working our asses off.

Trapped in the fear of being submerged in this illusion we call reality, many of us are now choosing to look for some answers.

Several of us are receiving the answers in rather startling and 'in the face' manners. 

We cannot create a picture without us in the picture.
A simple truth, yet we have forgotten.

But does that mean we have to stay blind?
Does it mean that we have to pretend everything is  a chance play and we are cosmic accidents?

Why hide when you can receive the truth?
And why pretend that the truth is not known when it has been there, all this time, right within us?
I read somewhere that every single one of us, living in this world, this so called primitive world, is here by choice.
What better way to have fun than to drop right into the currents of a civilization that is at exciting crossroads?

Why was I going on and on about such deep and thought provoking ideas, you ask?
Well, today’s practice is Surrounding Ourselves With Empowering Resources.
We keep ourselves within reach of the truth. We maintain connection, as much as possible, with evidence of our true nature.

As we live by choice, in a primitive world, we are constantly bombarded by limiting ideas, situations of lack and decrement.
Which means, we can by choice, strive to remember the truth as much as possible.
This doesn’t mean that we physically go guns blazing at all sources that speak of lack and poverty.
We choose to seek ways that will remind us of where our true power lies: it is always here and always now; it is in our thoughts in the here and now.
Here are some ideas: subscribe to Notes From The Universe.
Read inspirational books that resonate with you.
Outrageous Openness by Tosha Silver is a magnificent way to open yourself to the magic of effortlessness and ease.
Life on Earth – Who we are, How we got Here, and What we can do with our time in space by Mike Dooley is a fascinating read.
Download the Hay House Radio app, subscribe to their newsletter; Hay House is my go to place for release. Look out for their World Summits and free programs. They have led me on extraordinary adventures.
Check out The Sedona Method. Listen to the teachings of Hale Dwoskin for turning your everyday into a complete breeze.
Sonia Choquette, Merav Richter, Kris Carr and Robert Holden are a few others you should look up.
Again, these are the resources I have discovered so far. You should of course, look for resources through your own eyes and heart and choose ones that resonate with you.
Do what you can, no matter how little and measly your efforts might seem, with whatever you have from wherever you are.
That is all you ever need to do. And without a chance, the Flow of Love and Light and Extraordinary Awesomeness will engulf you in its warm currents, taking you to places right out of your wildest dreams.

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,…
